Cosmetic Facial Surgery
Excellent customer service skills. Sincere approach.
I cannot get over the difference in my son since Dr. Niamtu removed a large cyst from his face! The scheduling, paperwork, and actual procedure were such easy processes for my son and myself that we were rather shocked that nothing else was required of us. The efficiency of the office staff (clinical and administrative) coupled with their outgoing friendly personalities made what was scary for this mom, much more relaxed! Dr Niamtu took the time to email with me prior to the procedure and even checked on how I was doing when he came to let me know that the procedure was over and I could take my son home shortly. A positive bedside manner is hard to find, and when found rarely feels genuine; however, Dr. Niamtu gave us genuine attention both via email and during my son's care in his office. Thank you Dr. Niamtu and staff! My son feels like a "new man" and is ready for that promotion at work now! Many blessings, G's Momma

Wow! You must have ESP, I was just thinking a couple of days ago I never did get these pictures and then you send them. Thank you. I wanted you to know I think you are a wonderful doctor and you did a great job, also your staff was awesome. It was well worth being out of commission for the recoup time (which actually was not that bad). Thanks so much to you and your staff.
The changes are amazing!!!!
Dear Dr. Joe, Thank you for sending the before and after pictures. I have been staring at them all afternoon. The changes are amazing!!!! I am so very pleased and grateful to you. All the bags and dark circles are gone from my eyes (I have eyelids again!!!) and my saggy jowls and wrinkly neck look so much better all thanks to you and your talent and skills. I can't help but smile now every time I look in the mirror. Even my husband has noticed a change for the better in my disposition. I could go on and on about how happy I am with the results and the entire experience (including your knowledgable and friendly staff) but suffice to say I would do it all again tomorrow and recommend it to anybody who wants to change something if it will make them feel better about themselves like it did me.Forever grateful, KayP.S. I am planning to have the laser procedure done this fall.
The right surgeon for the job...
I traveled from the West coast to have my surgery performed by Dr. Niamtu. Though I had never met him in person, I felt that he was the right surgeon for the job. I sent photographs to his website He viewed them personally and called to discuss my expectations. He even suggested that I wait on surgery unless I was particularly distressed by my appearance. He NEVER pressured me into surgery. I flew to Virginia and had an informative conversation with him and again he asked if I was sure about surgery. I was and I am extremely satisfied because he took no shortcuts. His technique is meticulous and exacting. I live 20 minutes from the cosmetic surgery capital (California) yet I feel I choose the best surgeon for my needs. Interestingly enough my husband who accompanied me on the trip said he didn't like Dr. Niamtu (said he was full of himself) after the consultation his whole attitude changed. Dr. Niamtu was humble, gracious, informative and set everyone at ease.
...Feel and look like a celebrity...
Dr. Niamtu performed the best Blepharoplasty on my lower eyelids just two and a half months ago. I am so please with the results and I feel lifted both mentally and physically. As an African American woman, we often assume that we don't need cosmetic surgery but in my case, the natural milestones faced in later life had taken a toll on my appearance and dampened my feeling of well-being. Dr. Niamtu conquered all this with prompt, friendly and courteous service and his superior facial art works. During my initial consultation, the high level skill of Dr. Niamtu was apparent as he easily diagnosed and recommended treatment which included blepharoplasty, botox and smile line filers. The beauty of my two best female friends and colleagues (one Philippine and the other African American) are enhanced by Dr. Niamtu's skill as the both were his patience. They shared their immaculate satisfaction with Dr. Niamtu and all the staff. I must say that they all make you feel and look like a celebrity every time.

Very, very pleased
Dr Joe. Many thanks for the before after photos. As both of my daughters remarked, when I sent than photos before I saw than in person, that I was still me, but without all that excess 'baggage' I don't know what they were expecting, and for that matter, neither did I, but I am very, very pleased. Seeing the smiles on their faces 1 month post-op told me all that I needed to know. The care and attention given by you and your staff put me totally at ease, and for that I am most grateful.
Dr. Joe,Amazing results! I had been wearing glasses to hide my bags for years. After having them removed I feel more confident. Now I’m wearing contact lenses and eye makeup for the first time. 🙂 I don’t look tired anymore.You and your staff were wonderful. I couldn’t have asked for a better doctor.

This patient made our day!
Passionate surgeons love their work, but when it all comes together like Susan case, the feeling is elation! It is such a great feeling for me and my staff to be able to make a patient look and feel better about themselves.

Subject: RE: This is your old patient
I just wanted to thank you for all the work you have done for me, the chemical peel, cheek and chin implants and lower eyelid surgery. My smile is fuller, my face seems happier and I don’t look tired or run down anymore. The change has been great, even though it was a subtle change that wasn’t easily noticed by friends and family. I feel much more confident in the way that I look and people notice how confident I am. I love my profile and my skin looks so young. Thank you Dr. Niamtu for all the amazing work you have done for me, and for your wonderful friendly staff, they are the best and made me feel very comfortable throughout the whole experience.
Greetings Dr. Niamtu,
I have been remiss in keeping in touch with you guys, and I do apologize for that.
Being an “out of town” patient with an extremely demanding schedule has prevented me from getting in to see you recently, but no matter the distance, I would never refer anyone to any other doctor – you’re the best!
It has been 16 months since my surgery, and I am still frequently overwhelmed with delight when I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror. I have always considered myself a confident individual, but I have to say that I feel like a new person. I am ecstatic with the results!
I was amazed at the changes in my appearance as I healed, even noticing subtle changes still, well over a year after surgery.
I hope everyone is doing well, and I look forward to seeing you and your staff in the near future. I will call next week to schedule an appointment.
Words are not enough to express to you how happy I am with the results. I want to thank you profusely. I want you to know that you have given me some much needed confidence. For most of my adult life I have HATED my profile but didn’t know how to do anything about it, then one day last year my aunt asked me to go with her to a seminar where your staff had a booth set up with information about you. Needless to say, I am so glad she talked me into going because not long after that day I made an appointment to see you.
I know how much you give back to the community and I think you’re wonderful for helping so many children whose afflictions make their lives so difficult. You’re a good man and I hope that God will bless you and your family.
I’m sorry for getting so long winded but I hope you understand how much I appreciate you. Best wishes to you and your wonderful staff.
Bill Bevins of Lite 98 FM looking well rested for the Wake-up Show.
