I visited several surgeons but chose Dr. Pontell because I felt most comfortable due to his honesty in setting my expectations. He took his time with me to help me decide what I should and shouldn’t do now. I am now 2 months...

I first went to see Dr. Pontell in my early 50’s as I saw my jawline starting to get “jowly” and realized surgery was my only option. He did a mini lift on me in his office; it could not have gone smoother and the results were awesome. No pain, no complications, quick recovery. I followed up in my late 50’s with a second mini li...

He is truly kind and really cares.

I have been a patient of Dr. Pontell's for many years now and initially had several surgical procedures at one time and not even my best friend could tell that I had 'work' done.

Before and 2 months after a reduction rhinoplasty to take care of a very long, droopy nose with a significant bump (dorsal hump) tip that was angled downward (ptotic) and bulbous. For this patient, the plan was to create a much shorter nose with a narrower tip with a feminine amount of tip lifting (rotation).
