Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Tollefson "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."

I broke my nose playing basketball one day and was very lucky to have Dr. T as my doctor. The level of professionalism, courtesy, and knowledge that Dr. T provides turned my experience from a nervous and scared one to a confidently successful experience. He is thorough and breaks things down very simply during his examinations, and his operation that he perform on me went very well. The overall look and feel of my nose now is exactly what I wanted and needed.

Dr Tollefson repaired my son's cleft lip just about a year ago. We couldn't have been happier with the entire process! Dr. Tollefson has been amazing to work with and did an amazing job with our son! He clearly knows what he is doing and demands perfection. What more could a mother ask for from someone operating on their 3 month old child.

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.
