From the moment I walked into Dr. Ahn’s office to the post surgery appointments, my experience with Dr. Ahn and his staff was nothing less than amazing. I had rhinoplasty October 2016. I was so nervous about making the decision to have the surgery, but after my initial consultation, I knew if I was going to go forward, it would only be with Dr. Ahn. He was extremely professional, kind, knowledgeable, and helpful. I was petrified on the day of my surgery, but Dr. Ahn and his staff were so professional and kind, they got me through it with no problems. It was an added bonus that the procedure is done at his office in a clean and comfortable environment. The results are phenomenal…I went from hating my nose to absolutely loving it. He is so particular about his work, it doesn’t look like I had a surgery at all. But, my nose is absolutely perfect for my face and beautifully done. I had to write this review for people like me who are hesitant. I’m so thrilled I went through with it. I was back to work in two weeks! Also, price point is reasonable and his results are truly above par. His staff is very professional and organized. They completely prepared me for everything, start to finish. I’m 47 this month and wish I did this years ago. So good luck and don’t be afraid to go for it! Thank you Dr. Ahn!!!
I am not new to plastic surgery and this was my first surgery with Dr. Ahn. He was by far the best I have ever been to! He and his entire staff are wonderful and caring. I had a mini facelift revision and neck lift. I feel great and have received compliments without anyone really knowing what I have actually done. I highly recommend Dr. Ahn and his staff!
We are most fortunate to have Dr. Ahn and his associates in Massachusetts. I would travel to see him in another state, if he need be – given the results. In short, they exceeded my expectations! Moreover, when I share that I had procedures with others, the feedback always includes how natural it looks. Last, I tell others to expect a level of professionalism from him and his staff that is exceptional.
Thank you so much for sending the pictures. I am very happy with the way my eyes look – what a difference!! Looks like I could come back for some help with some other things! I really appreciate all of the support and care you showed me last year. I really questioned whether I should do it or not. You sharing your experience with me really helped me decide to go ahead and I am so very happy I did. Please thank Dr. Ahn for me again.
Dr. Ahn and his team have surpassed my highest expectations. They have spent endless amounts of time with me, answering my questions and assuaging my fears. Dr. Ahn himself proved not only remarkably knowledgeable in our consultation, but was quick to point out that of the three areas of my face I wanted him to work on, two would be a waste of my time and my money. For the third, he gave very specific reasons why I might want improvement, but never pressured me to go ahead with a procedure. In the end, I chose not to have surgery, which Dr. Ahn was fine with. It seems to me, that in choosing and working with a plastic surgery, you want someone whose technical acumen is matched by exceedingly high ethical standards. In working with me, Dr. Ahn has demonstrated both, time and time again.
Hello Dr. Ahn,
I recently went to a wedding in St. Thomas and when we were saying good bye to folks at the airport, I overheard a man who was among the wedding guests tell my husband that he had a very pretty and young wife.
Thanks so much to you and your staff!
Thank you so very much for all your kindness, caring and patience. I honestly wouldn’t have been able to do it without you!
Dr. Ahn, Rebecca, Beth, Amy, & Staff,
Thank you all so much for making the surgery possible. I so appreciate the support and care. With much gratitude.
Dear Dr. Ahn,
I wanted to thank you for making me feel so welcome at my consultation. Other plastic surgeons had made me feel unwelcome. Please thank your staff for being so supportive of me before and after my surgery. You have made me look younger and now I have a new outlook on life. I can’t thank you enough.
To Dr. Ahn and Staff –
I was so nervous about the Fraxel treatment! But like you girls said, it was great! I look forward to my next one. I hope to schedule my next Fraxel very soon!
Dear Dr. Ahn,
Thank you for being so understanding and supportive through my recovery. You made me feel comfortable to express myself without feeling rushed. You made me feel much more calm and positive about the entire healing process. Your patience and support and obvious concern really matters to a patient. You have a great staff-especially Rebecca. She comforted me before, during, and post surgery. She let me know I was in good hands (literally )! Thanks again for being such a good and kind doctor-and for giving me 10 years back!
I just want to say that I notice a difference in quality of Fraxel treatments done at The AWC, compared to the treatment I had at the other office I went to. First, is that you and Dr. Ahn seem to care about me and it’s not all about the money. I am more swollen and the recovery time is taking longer and that I am happy about. You also seemed more experienced and professional than the past RN I had experienced with.
Dear Dr. Ahn,
Thank you so much for all that you have done for me, not only with respect to my recent rhinoplasty, but for all of the compassion and kindness you showed me after my skin cancer diagnosis. Words cannot adequately express my gratitude so I wanted to give you just a small token of appreciation. I am so happy with how my nose looks-the swelling continues to diminish and I feel great. You are brilliant, talented, and incredibly patient and reassuring. Thank you for taking time to answer all my questions and for being a leader and true professional in all that you do.
I just wanted to put in writing how happy I am with my new and greatly improved jaw line and neck! I think I was a little afraid when I saw the first unveiling-so different! But as I am sure you know, I quickly would realize and appreciate your fine work and expertise.
Thank you-and Rebecca-for taking such good care of me. Your whole staff is welcoming and friendly and has made this an easy procedure.
Dr. Ahn and Rebecca,
We just wanted to thank you for everything you’ve done for me and my mom. We are so thankful that there are doctors like you. We are very happy with the results!
M.L. & M.B., 67, 35
Dr. Ahn and Rebecca,
We want to extend our heartfelt gratitude and appreciation for your impressive professionalism and extreme kindness. I have done amazingly well post-op and am so excited to enjoy the benefits of this procedure. Hope you have a wonderful summer!
A.V. & M.V., 28
Thank you so very much. I honestly cannot believe the difference. I look amazing! Side by side comparisons….I have no words. It’s hard to believe it has been a year since my procedure. I am really excited!
Dear Dr Ahn
I just wanted to take the time and let you know what a wonderful team you have.
I have only had the greatest experience in your and Rebecca’s hands. As you know I have an extreme fear of needles and Rebecca has the most amazing way to calm my fears and make me look great! Today I even had my lips done!
Your office staff are always friendly and treats me with the greatest professionalism.
I wish you and your team Happy Holidays and a Wonderful New Year.
Dear Dr. Ahn,
The words “thank you” don’t seem to capture how thankful I am to you and your staff in seeing me through my procedure. Although it’s only been a little longer than a week, I feel like a much more confident and happy person. When I was young I always said I would never “go under the knife” but the situation of my eyes was affecting my every day being. I know at times I was a challenge and I thank you for your patience. I know look forward with a new outlook and am grateful our paths have crossed. Beth was correct in saying you are an artist. I can’t stop smiling (and looking in the mirror)!
Just HAD to drop you another line to tell you how happy I am with everything! I keep looking at my nose in the mirror at different angles and can’t believe it’s mine! It is only day seven of post op so it still is going to get better! I caught my reflection in the window when I was sitting at my mother’s table and I saw a jaw line, a neck, and therefore made my shoulders look sleeker. It just domino’s down the line.
…Being newly separated from my husband I am not looking for a new identity but I have to say I am holding my shoulders a little higher!!
I’m going to leave you with one more little story. When Dr. Ahn came to see me in SDC before surgery to mark my neck I told him this; one of my friends said to me “you shouldn’t change what God gave you” and I said “God didn’t give me this, I (messed) up what God gave me so now I’m gonna fix it!!”
Thank you all!
I just wanted to write and thank you once again for the kindness, patience, and great care. It’s been a long time decision and plan for me and your advice, consideration, and professionalism helped me in choosing the right course of action for me. I am extremely pleased with my results and look forward to facing “the process” with a positive attitude. You told me when I first met you, “one step at a time” so that’s exactly what I’m doing. Thank you again.
I ust wanted to write a quick review to compliment Dr. Ahn for a great job with my septorhinoplasty six months ago. At this point I can say with confidence that I have a natural, good-looking result.
I’ve always had a nose that’s on the larger side, and as I got older, its asymmetry became more pronounced and the tip seemed to grow longer and droopier.
During the consultation, I explained to Dr. Ahn that I like having a distinctive nose, but I’d like it to be more symmetrical and more in proportion to my face. He understood what I meant, saying “So what we’re talking about is a nicer version of YOUR nose.” Yes!
My nose is more symmetrical, a little narrower, and with a more attractive tip angle – but it all looks very natural. Dr. Ahn has also been good about coaching me in post-operative care, including massaging the nose and pressing it in a certain way to ensure it heals as symmetrically as possible.
In summary, it’s a lot of money, but after obsessing over my nose for many years, it’s freeing to not be so self-conscious and to be able to look in the mirror and like what I see.
Well it has been 4 years since my mini lift and Juverderm treatments. I think I had it done in February of 2011. I have to thank you and Dr. Ahn for giving me a younger look. Still me, and I am still aging, but I feel great! This year I will be 57 and I am a grandmother of a 4 year old. When I am out with him, I get comments ALL the time like “you can’t be a grandmother” or ” you’re the youngest looking grandmother.” I love it. Well, who wouldn’t!
So thank you all.
I would like to come in for a follow-up. Maybe a photo to see how things have changed!
I need to cancel this appointment for a follow up. I have a really good result, I am so happy with the Juvederm and Botox. No bruising at all and it wasn’t painful. So, all is well, I will get in touch when I need a touch up. Thank you and enjoy your holidays!
Dear Dr. Ahn & the Aesthetic Wellness Center Staff:
Thank you for all of your hard work, hospitality, and careful attention to detail. I love my new nose!
I am 10 days post-surgery and just wanted to say THANK YOU to you, Rebecca, all the staff, and of course Dr. Ahn for an amazing experience. I am already back to work with no bruising and absolutely no sign that I had surgey- just an amazing new appearance of my nose and way better breathing! I got my cast off on Wednesday and at first didn’t know what to think or feel. It was emotional for me and needed a few days to get used to my new look. I am so happy and beyond pleased with my results and it’s only been 10 days! I can’t wait to see the final results once all of the swelling is completely gone. The changes are very subtle so someone who isn’t close to me wouldn’t really notice a difference, but enough for me to feel so much more confident about myself again.
Everything Dr. Ahn explained to me in our consult was dead-on and the results were too. He explained that due to the trauma I had, my nose may not be perfectly straight and I appreciated his honesty– but it’s pretty darn close!
I am beyond excited and happy and can’t thank you enough!
Thank you for helping me and fixing my boo boo.
I could not be more pleased with the results of the procedures that you recommended for me. For most of my life, I have not been a person to be particularly concerned with my looks, but upon reaching my 50s, I started to look in the mirror and despair with the rapid changes I was seeing in my appearance. I am thrilled with the results and very appreciative of your professionalism and expertise, including your recommendation of a procedure (chin augmentation) that I would not have considered without the benefit of your artful eye.
The procedures went like clockwork and the information provided before, during, and after was complete and right on the money as far as describing what to expect. I can’t say enough about Rebecca as well, who was wonderful throughout the whole process. Since the procedure, I’ve been fielding questions from friends and colleagues such as, Are you working out? Did you Lose weight? Have you been dieting? You look really great – did you just come back from vacation?, etc.
I can’t tell you how much I appreciate what you’ve done and I can quite literally say that your efforts have changed my whole outlook going forward. You are welcome to use me as a resource for future patients and don’t hesitate to have anyone call or e-mail with any questions. My advice to all will be do whatever Dr. Ahn recommends without delay! Many Thanks!
Dr. Ahn came highly recommended to me from my colleagues in the fashion industry and his work has exceeded my expectations. He and his staff were extremely professional, courteous, and helpful through every step of the process and went out of their way to make me feel comfortable at all times. The results were fantastic and I give Dr Ahn and his staff my highest recommendation to my friends and clients.
I would like to express my appreciation for the wonderful post operative care extended to me by everyone in this organization. Everyone’s sensitivity to my needs has been at the 100% level which is totally consistent with my entire experience with The Aesthetic Wellness Center.
Dear Dr. Ahn and staff,
This is a long overdue thank you for all the kind services I received! I love my eyes – they are such an improvement!
Thank you for all you’ve done this past year to assist in my health and well being. I will always think of this year as the year my smile returned.
Dear Dr. Ahn and Staff,
I so enjoy coming to your office – everyone is so happy and upbeat! And, of course I always look better when I leave!
I am so pleased and happy with each procedure and surgery that I have had here. It is a warm and friendly atmosphere that keeps me coming back and I tell so many of my friends about your office.
Dear Dr. Ahn,
I want to let you know how much I appreciate what you have done for me. I love my new appearance and especially my neck! I used to hide behind turtleneck sweaters and now when I look in the mirror I’m delighted! I did not know what to expect, but you took the time to explain all aspects of the surgery and even used computer imaging to let me see how I would look after the actual surgery. You and your staff offered a safe, caring, and comfortable experience to me. Looking back, I am certain I made the right decision. I am much more confident in my appearance. You are an artist and thank you for the incredible job you did. My advice to anyone who isn’t sure whether to go through with the surgery is to go for it! You will not regret it! If you have any questions I would be happy to answer them. Just ask Dr. Ahn or Laura to put you in touch with me!
Dear Dr. Ahn and Staff,
I would like to thank you all for making me feel like a worthy human being again. The professionalism and emotional support along with a little Juvederm and Botox was the perfect medicine for me! The staff are as friendly as they are beautiful. I am looking forward to the compliments that keep coming thanks to all of you. I was truly at an all time low emotionally and physically. You’ve all given me the confidence boost to get back on track and kick some b___!
Thank you for being so kind and supportive before, during, and after my procedure. Your genuine personality and concern really means a lot-especially when a person is in such a vulnerable state of being. I knew you guys cared and I was in good hands. You were very comforting. Thank you for your kindness and for helping me through this process.
Dear Dr. Ahn,
I just wanted to send a note of thanks for the wonderful job you did on my recent rhinoplasty. Ever since I was a teenager, I had been slightly self conscious of my wide nose (not to mention all of the trouble I had with the deviated septum). As I grew older, I learned to like my nose a bit better because it was similar to my grandmother’s, mother’s and, now, daughter’s (although still a bit wider). When I first came to see you, I was unsure if I really wanted to have rhinoplasty. I was scared that I would end up looking drastically different and I would no longer resemble myself or the members of my family. After seeing your work and discussing with you my desires, I felt confident that you understood what I was looking for and had the experience to make my nose still look like mine…only better.
It has now been about 8 weeks and I am very pleased with the results. I recently went home for the holidays to visit family members and had numerous people asking me if I had done something different with my hair or make-up. Everyone said I looked great (but couldn’t quite pinpoint what the difference was).
I also want to say that you and your staff were wonderful through the entire process. I always felt comfortable and also really appreciated both you and Rebecca checking in on me to make sure I had all of my questions answered and had everything I needed.
I would highly recommend you and your office to anyone looking to enhance their appearance in a subtle, natural and beautiful way.
I was expecting a change in the hyper-pigmentation from the Fraxel laser treatment that Rebecca administered; however, you can’t imagine the sheer joy I experienced when I actually saw the final result. I actually started to cry, as I couldn’t believe how wonderful my skin looked. After all these years, the dark patches were gone…..
Everything seems to be healing well after the laser treatments I received this past week. Thank you so much for the care and kindness you showed me during the treatment.
What a dramatic difference and great result my son got! Dr. Ahn and his staff have been such a pleasure to work with and have always made my son very comfortable. Thanks to all of you for a wonderful experience! My son first saw Dr. Ahn at 15 years old and after our first consult appointment, he knew he wanted Dr. Ahn to do the surgery on his nose. Thanks again to the entire staff for being so kind and professional.
Thanks for thinking of me and arranging the upgraded Fraxel treatment yesterday. I appreciate both you and Dr. Ahn! My compliments also to the entire staff for always offering a friendly, patient focused atmosphere that makes me feel good!
No bruises…! Everything looks good; you are an artist!
