Dr. Perkins has saved my face literally. I had a revision with him after a doctor screwed up my broken nose. He then had to do a touch up after a revision which turned out to be yet another surgery. He didn't charge me for the 2nd surgery at all and although it was a long healing process I am now finally happy with my nose. I have done 1 year worth of research, this doctor is skilled and knows what he is doing. He will not take you on unless he knows he can help you and definitely not about money at all. If you need revision from a botched nose he is your guy.

I had a Neck Lift with Dr. Perkins. I am only 2 weeks post op and it looks amazing. I had almost no bruising and normal swelling. He went over ever detail with me so nothing was a surprise. The entire staff is amazing. I felt so comfortable with Dr. Perkins, this was my first surgery and was really nervous about what I was getting done. I had so much confidence in him and he made be feel so comfortable. I feel like a new person.

I had heard wonderful things about Dr. Perkins, but was still hesitant to have surgery on my nose. I had a bulbous tip that bothered me, and I felt my face, overall, was aging too quickly. Dr. Perkins eased all my concerns, explained the surgery and the healing process thoroughly, and I decided to proceed. He performed a rhinoplasty, lower eyelid chemical peel, endoscopic brow lift and liposuction of my neck. I am not easily "wowed" in regard to changes in my looks and assumed I would not react when they removed my nasal splint roughly a week after surgery. I was wrong. I noticed a big difference in my nose and my neck. I expected swelling, but still the results were great. Less than a month after my surgery, I ran into a friend I had not seen since about a month before the surgery. She did not notice that I had anything done to my nose. Even to this day, friends who have known me for years do not know unless I tell them. I thought that Dr. Perkins was a great surgeon because the change was so subtle to others, yet very significant to me. Looking back now and comparing my postoperative photos to ones prior, I see a thinner nose with softer features in my face overall. Trusting Dr. Perkins with my face was the best decision I could have made!

I had a lower face/neck lift(extended SMAS) upper lower bleph, rhinoplasty, co2 around mouth, resty to lips and n/l folds, and TCA under eyes. Tho i was freaked out for several weeks about my altered appearance, Dr. Perkins was very helpful and reassuring though the entire process. He never thought any question or concern i had was unreasonable. Tho costly, i am extremely happy with my outcome. i just celebrated my 50th birthday with a big bash and I had people saying i never looked better(or younger). Thank you, Dr.P!

I had some prior poorly placed cheek implants and 7 bad lip surgeries I needed to have repaired, and I wanted to have a mid-facelift. I found Dr. Perkins to be kind, intelligent and not arrogant (like so many doctors seem to be) He removed the two sets of poorly placed cheek implants I had done by another surgeon, and attempted to repair some of the asymmetry issues i was left with from prior lip work. The mid-facelift surgery made me very happy, took 10-15 years off, and other than a little problem with the outer corner of my eye, which he did some touch-up on later free of charge, I was extremely happy with the work he did. I am posting a before and after picture that shows what I looked like the summer before and the summer after, approximately a year apart. I think Dr Perkins is one of the best surgeons in the Indianapolis area, his facility is wonderful and his staff is the best. I would recommend him to others. http://newimagenow.hypermart.net/beforeafter.jpg
