I interviewed a number plastic surgeons in other parts of the Bay Area and San Francisco and am very glad I chose Dr. Bansal and his excellent, personable staff at Elite MD for my procedures which took place in late December of 2010. I had a mini-lift to improve my neck and chin. A laser was used on eyelids, around the eye and mouth area to minimize wrinkles, remove a cheek scar and some unsightly age spots on my face. Results: I couldn’t be happier. My neck and chin result are incredible and Dr. Bansal’s pride and joy. Wrinkles are gone and/or diminished around eye and mouth areas. Scar on cheek and age spots are gone. Skin texture is much improved. Other benefits: On an initial visit, I was able to speak with and question another patient who had the same procedures I was contemplating. She looked fantastic and looked about 20 years younger than her actual age. As a woman in my 60′s, a local anesthetic was used rather than a general which made me less anxious about the surgery which went well and was relatively comfortable. Choosing a local practice turned out to be a wise decision since it was more convenient for the post-op and follow-up appointments to be close to home. Since the surgery, I have recommended Elite MD to others who thought I looked great and had good results.
