Care Philosophy

The relationship you build with your surgeon begins with a consultation. During your consultation, I consider several factors most important: 1) I strive to create a comfortable non-pressured atmosphere in order to build a trusting doctor-patient relationship. 2) I believe each patient deserves a thorough discussion and thoughtful considerations of the results sought. The consultation is never 'rushed' and every question is extremely important. 3) I make every effort to give each patient an accurate, realistic idea of what they can expect after surgery. When deciding on a treatment, more is not necessarily better. The end result should give the patient the desired effect with a very natural look that is not 'over done'. It should produce minimal discomfort and pain with minimal bruising and swelling, allow quick recovery, and leave minimal scars. 4) Finally, I adhere to the highest standards of safety and to avoid complications throughout the surgical experience.

As a journalist, I've written at least 50 articles on plastic surgery, and got to know the work of top L.A. surgeons-- and Dr. Svehlak, in my opinion, is one of the very best. I've also been his patient for the last 15 years. He can do everything, from noses and eyes to breasts and body sculpting. Check out his web site, the before-and-after pics speak for themselves!

DO NOT CHOOSE THIS SURGEON IF YOU'RE LOOKING TO DO A RHINOPLASTY OR AN UPPER LIP LIFT!!! I am tremendously disappointed with my results. In fact, there is hardly any difference!! He performed both surgeries TWICE because first one was unsuccessful with hardly any results!! What a waste of money!!!! Not to mention all the time and stress this has caused me. Too bad this site doesn't provide a photo option for reviews. PLEASE SAVE YOUR MONEY OR GO ELSEWHERE!!!!!!!!!
