Learn about this Doctor

Care Philosophy

My passion for facial plastic surgery allows me to integrate both art and science into my endeavors. I hope to establish an understanding of my patient's motivations and expectations so that we can create a personalized plan. I hope to help my patients navigate the information gathering and decision making processes for their own or their child's facial surgery. Often this is accomplished in a dialogue focused on bridging the information gap in order to make the best decisions.Read more

Dr. Tollefson did a perfect job of fixing a deviated septum for me a few years ago. I just made another appointment for him, for a different issue. I'd highly recommend him.
I found Dr. Tollefson to be condescending and arrogant, which I think is unprofessional. As a patient, I like being treated with respect.
