Ratings for Dr. Christian G. Drehsen
Well what a journey I am 55 years of age and I have seen so many plastic surgeons they all can do the procedure but no pics no proof I even trusted one and had fat transfer to my face I had zero results then through the nightmare of all the swelling and bruising . I live in France and have travelled across the world to see Dr Drehsen what a great decision!! The day I met Dr Drehsen was a god send this man is truly amazing he is a genius in what he does, I was an hour late and he still gave me all the time in the world he is a gentleman. Look at the pics and video's they do not lie he is a sculpture, I am 2 weeks 3 days out and already starting to look good I can see the results already no jowls, sunken cheeks or turkey neck he is a sculpture believe me, he also reshaped my sad flat dropped rear end, my buttocks look round and youthful again! Kim she initially was my first contact who helped me make my decision she was with me all the way through the whole experience she was fantastic
I can't emphasize enough how HORRIBLE my experience with Drehsen and his staff was. Huge mistake going there. I fell for his fancy office and promises made by the staff that he was "the best" and specialized in lips. He botched my lip enhancement procedure so badly, it took me months & a lot of time/money with other doctors to fix what he did to me. He used the wrong non-FDA approved filler for lips, "ran out" mid-procedure leaving my mouth uneven and made me buy 2 syringes, injected it in the wrong places around my mouth and cheeks for no reason, also unevenly & too shallow. The way he injected it also created more parentheses lip line around my mouth that weren't there before and made me luck overall like a clown duck. There was no initial consultation, no follow up, no at home instructions, no before and after photos, no analysis - basically he didn't care at all about the procedure or the outcome, just the billing. There was a lot of pain, bleeding, bruising, numbness and lumps. He is also pretty mean, cold and stand-offish. Basically the opposite of how you want your plastic surgeon to be! I never healed from his injections until getting hyaluronidase from another doctor to remove his, 2 weeks later. I didn't even trust Drehsen to fix his own mistakes for free, if he had such bad judgement to get me into that situation and use the wrong filler and over-fill to begin with. In hindsight, after going to a competent doctor to fix what he did and having a wonderful experience, I am horrified at how bad my experience was at Clinique Skin in comparison. He clearly only cares about money and paying for his office remodel. Stay far far away and don't believe his fancy website, facebook ads and pretty office! Complete sham. The thought of going under the knife with him is terrifying - ugh! Simple Juvederm and botox injections were bad enough. The botox was uneven as well and I had to go back to get more, still uneven, then waited for it to wear off and went to someone else. The only good thing is how easy it is to get an appointment here - probably because he doesn't have may clients!! I emphatically recommend going to ANYONE but Christian Drehsen.
I have just hit my 2 month mark after having a facelift and chemical peel. I look and feel wonderful, and I am so glad I had the procedures. Dr. Drehsen and his staff have been helpful and professional every step of the way. Dr. Drehsen has a gift for creating a youthful and natural looking facelift. I highly recommend Clinique of Plastic Surgery Clinics.
Very bad experience. The doctor, who is probably 70+ years old, is surrounded by staff that jst does not care. I HAD BAD EXPERIENCE WITH DR. DREHSEN THE PLASTIC SURGEON.
It's not enough to say that Dr. Drehsen is the best plastic surgeon. His work is truly magical. His skin rejuvenation techniques are incredible. One look at his before and after patient pics- and you'll understand what I am talking about. I am also a patient of Dr. Drehsen. I'm very happy and satisfied with my results. I drove all the way from Miami to go to Dr. Drehsen. If you want the best-look no further!
Originally, I went to Dr. Drehsen because to the magnificient results in the before and after photos on his web site. We had our first consultation and both agreed on a plan for my two surgeries, one a tummy tuck and the other some face rejuvenation. What really helped me decide to follow through with Dr. D. was that he let me speak to three of his clients on the phone and several in office when I was th for my second consult. Even on my surgery prep appointment I met two ladies that were happy to share their results and happiness with the work he preformed. Dr. Drehsen truly is an artist. I had my first surgery which was very extensive lasting almost nine hours..and now 5 weeks later I'm am so thrilled with the results and even more thrilled to know that I am not finished healing and improving. We are meeting tommarow to see how the healing process is comming along and discuss and plan for part two. I spent a year researching for the perfect match for my tummy tuck and I would highly recommend Dr. D. and his staff to any one who wants to age as gracefully and bueatifully as you can imagine.
Let me start by saying I was a complicated case. I came to Dr. Drehsen with fat atrophy and I was very frightened. He was kind and managed to get me into surgery the following week. Something I will forever be grateful for. It takes a very gifted surgeon to be able to look at your face and see what it needs and to rebuild it with fat grafting. To follow your natural contours and give you the face you are accustomed to. Having such a large volume of fat put in under general anesthesia was a major surgery for me. The swelling is intense and you have to trust the process, the doctor, and the outcome. It's hard. At times I didn't handle that so well. (his staff was gracious, thank you!) At two months I started to feel and look human and it keeps getting better. (the stem cells in the fat are helping my skin too) I'm sitting here today very, very thankful to Dr. Drehsen...and I would go to him again in a heartbeat.
I didn't think I needed a facelift. I had a lower bleph by someone else 7 years ago and they left part of the fat pad under one eye with hollows and dark circles. I had bulbar fat over my inner upper eyelids. I am thin, 51 and my cheekbone areas had disappeared. I looked drawn and tired. There were lots of wrinkles when I smiled. I went for the procedure. He fixed the hollows, the cheeks, plumped the lips so I don't have to keep getting Juvaderm and other fillers...the ugly lower fat pad and the fat over my inner eyes are gone. I had some fat in the brow, temple, and jawline to balance my face. It is just 3 weeks now and people say I look beautiful. Now, I was shocked right after. There was swelling. I needed rest and to let the bruising go down. I knew that the face was to be overplumped with fat because 30% might be resorbed. I planned accordingly and got caught up on things at home. I love the staff. I love the price. They did not try to oversell anything. He did such a good job.
