I had Ultherapy performed at Dr. Torgersons office on 09/28/15. This was a preventative treatment for me, I did not have sagging skin, marionette lines or lost volume. On the contrary, my facial contours and volume were very healthy and youthful. Again, I was just looking to keep that genetically blessed beauty and prevent ever having to have any work done years from now. For the past 3 months I have been living a waking nightmare. My face has been robbed of all it's healthy subcutaneous fat causing loose skin jowls, laugh lines, marionette lines, eyelid retraction, hallow temples and cheeks. I look 15 years older from a mere 3 months ago and when I bend forward my face collapses because the skin has nothing to adhere to. I can pull my extra skin off my face like a peel off mask. I have seen other facial plastic surgeons who are shocked at the amount of damage done and say I am now a candidate for a lower face lift and fat grafts. It's truly a horror story and has negatively affected my life tremendously. Dr. Torgersons response to all this? This is a natural progression of aging and maybe I can get some money from Merz (manufacturer of Ulthera). He was more concerned with protecting himself and his staff than even caring to address my damage and help me. Ultherapy done improperly CAN cause the destruction of subcutaneous fat. Dr. Torgerson has no moral code, he does not care what happens to his patients. They have robbed me of my natural beauty and offer no explanation, assistance, guidance, or concern. This is not how a reputable Physician treats their patients, this is how a dishonest unethical business owner cons then blows off his clients. His office manager Nadine is very quick to be condescending and really only concerns herself with shifting blame. Not once has he or his office reached out in concern about my damage. Again, incredibly unprofessional and a testament as to how they handle their life altering mistakes. Dr. Torgerson and his staff are Unethical,untrustworthy, uncaring and completely misleading. Dr. Torgerson has shown no indication in addressing his botch job and has no concern that his mistakes have caused serious damage to my face but this will not end with this review. He will be held accountable. I'm writing this review in hopes to spar someone else the heartache and trauma of going through such a horrific experience, dealing with the stress of losing their beauty in a mere 3 month and being blown off by Dr. Cory Torgerson.

Dr. Torgerson performed a lower face-lift on me three weeks ago. He was very pleasant, informative and empathetic at pre-surgical consultations. He was kind enough to provide advice to me and to my sister at once. He views himself as an "artist" and suggested that the face-lift would take ten years off of me. He recommended against less invasive approaches, suggesting that I would be "under-whelmed". I was nervous but proceeded and the surgery went extremely well with Dr. T doing some work beyond the call of duty as it became evident at the time that this was necessary. This was incredibly generous and generosity of this kind is a rare commodity. I was amazed with the results.... which were better than I had ever anticipated. Dr. Torgerson is genuine, artistic and truly wants fantastic results for his patients. He was a great support to me prior to, at the time of and subsequent to the surgery. His rates are competitive and his work was exceptional. He delivered all that he he said he would an much more. My sister and two friends have had similarly excellent experiences with Dr. T (but different procedures). It was my observation from the beginning that Dr. T was encouraging me to only pursue the amount of work that was essential to result in a healthy, successful and natural-looking outcome. There was no pressure to ... purchase more. The face I now see in the mirror has been a stranger for many years. There is no way that I could ever thank Dr. T enough for his extraordinary work. It should also be noted that his staff is very friendly, professional and supportive. He provided a nurse for the first 12 hours following the surgery and I must also say that she was terrific and helped me through the most acute stage of recovery. My experience with Dr. T and team could not have been better and will certainly continue in the future.

Dr. Torgerson performed a necklift, facelift and chin implant on me, awhile back. I am thrilled with the results and so glad that my research paid off. I decided to visit Dr. T. as he was a head and neck surgeon as well as a 'facial' cosmetic surgeon! I realized at that first visit that he had a keen eye for what was needed, as well as what was not as necessary. After the surgery, I knew for sure that he was truly an artist! The results were amazing. (I never imagined that results like that were possible for me.) Dr. T. was professional, kind and empathetic ... before, during and after the surgery. His staff were all very helpful throughout as well. I will be forever grateful to Dr. Torgerson for his kindness, expertise and for making me look better than I have ever looked in my life!! I HIGHLY recommend this skilled Doctor!

I had a great experience with Dr. Torgerson. Seeing him for years for fillers and botox, I have developed a great relationship with him. Has it always been perfect..no. But, before seeing Dr. Torgerson I had facial fillers done by another dermatologist with glowing reviews on this site and I had severe bumps and when I returned to this dermatologist I was told it looks great. NOT! My sister had facial fillers performed by another dermatologist with glowing reviews on this site and she too had a bad experience. What I am trying to say is, I feel the most important thing is to find someone that will work with you to find the right balance. I have approached Dr. T on occasion where I wasn't sure about some filler and he always corrected it and more importantly he will admit if it doesn't look right. Sometimes I am justifiably charged and sometimes at no charge. My only issue, is I wish he was a bit more punctual. The staff are fantastic.

If you are considering facial cosmetic surgery with Dr. Torgerson, you may aswell apply to the show Botched-because you will be a candidate. I have gone through so much emotional distress to the point where I regret considering cosmetic surgery. Money down the drain!

I waited 3 years before writing this review because I wanted it to be a fair and honest review. If you are someone with an ethnic nose or you have thick skin please STAY AWAY from this doctor. He has no idea what to do with those types of noses. I went for a consultation and he showed me imaging of this beautiful nose. He kept telling me how I'll come out of the surgery looking like a movie star and a bunch of other bull. He also suggested I get a chin implant (which I understand) and fillers almost everywhere in my face. Keep in mind I was 24 at the time with no wrinkles at all. After I started thinking out loud that maybe I want an implant, he was literally pushing it down my throat and making me get it. I said no. Which I'm glad I did. But his pushy behaviour should have been my first sign to run out of there. But I had the image of that perfect nose imbedded in my brain, so I put down the deposit for my first rhinoplasty. 3 months after post op my nose started curving from the tip, it looked like someone twisted it and it got stuck like that. He told me it was swelling so I continued being patient. 8 months post op, my nose started curving from the top all the way down to the tip. Again I was told it was swelling and he gave me a steroid injection which in my opinion did nothing. At my 1 year check up the curves in my nose was back to only being at my tip. BUT....I HAD NO BRIDGE. After my swelling was all gone, my nose was FLAT. I had a fairly decent bridge on my nose post surgery and all I was left with was a curved tip. His excuse was that it was scar tissue build up. Isn't scar tissue build up suppose to make the nose look bigger? Anyway I let him near my nose once again so he can rebuild my nose. It has been 2 years since my last surgery, and guess what? I still have no bridge. I have been to a few doctors who have all told me I'll need cartilage out of my ribcage so they can rebuild a nose for me and I can finally get what I want. I've been in the process of saving up $12,000 for another surgery so that the doctor can fix Togerson's mistakes. I paid $7500.00 for the surgery with Togerson. Please do you research, see more than just one doctor.

After many rhinoplasty attempts with different doctors and unsatisfactory results. I finally have the nose that I've always desired Thanks to Dr. Torgerson. For the first time people are commenting on how nice my nose shape is. When i explained to Dr. Torgerson how i disliked a certain shape of my nose from a certain angle, I had my doubts that he didn't understood me and i thought he just brushed off what i said just like the other doctors. But the results speak for themselves. As if he was in my head and he did exactly what i was hoping he would do. He also has the artistic eye that i find other doctors lack which helps a lot when it comes to nose reshaping.

If you come across this doctor...KEEP LOOKING. Find a plastic surgeon who is honest, practical and knows how to set expectations. If you are looking to have your nose done you need someone with years of experience and good beside manners, both of which this doctor lacks.

Like anything else you need to shop around and look for a board certified plastic surgeon. There are a lot of doctors who specialized in other fields now practicing plastic surgery for sheer profits. My experience with Dr. T. was both good and bad. It seemed to be hit/miss with him. My last injection was right underneath the tear trough, a very visible unattractive lump. I had it dissolved by another plastic surgeon.
