Few surgical facilities maintain the standards necessary for this accreditation.
A cancerous tumor was removed from deep in my facial tissue and resulted in a disfiguring scar. I went to two other plastic surgeons, one said nothing could be done and the other said surgery would make it worse. Dr Hunstad is renowned. I would go to the best and if he said no, that was it. At the initial appointment, he looked and said without hesitation, oh yes, I can fix that. He did indeed fix my scar. .When I saw the results, I just cried. I would no longer see cancer every time I looked in the mirror. Dr Hunstad does amazing work. Plus he so enthusiastic and works hard to give you his best. I am grateful beyond words.

I recently had Face and Neck Tite with Dr. Kortesis and have been absolutely thrilled with my results! The procedure wasn't painful, I hardly had any downtime and the best part is it looks amazing! He has excellent bedside manner and made me extremely comfortable. I've told all of my friends about him and would recommend him to anyone I know!
