Dr. Carniol helped me get rid of a large, red facial scar after a mole was removed and the scar was not healing properly. He assessed the work of the mole removal from a previous doctor and decided laser treatment was the best way to diminish the red bumpy scar. After a year he made the scar unnoticeable.

I never feel rushed and always feel like I am in safe, good hands with Dr. Carniol. He really spends time looking at my face to see where the natural asymmetry may be and meticulously corrects without ever being over done. All members of his staff are very attentive and professional as well.

Sara K. – Oct 30, 2018

Patient

I came to see Dr. Carniol as he came highly recommended from a peer in the plastic surgery profession. His knowledge and know-how helped me during the initial recovery period and beyond. He's not one to push invasiveness at the get-go, rather he works conservatively to get the best results. I'm very happy with his work, and the kindness and caring demeanor of the staff. I very much look forward to continuing my healing and recovery process with his guidance and skill.

Dr. Carniol did an amazing job removing a malignant melanoma from my face. I was hesitant to have anyone perform this procedure but I'm so glad I chose him. He had great reviews from others but the service he provided was beyond what I expected even based on his great reviews. His staff is also a pleasure to work with, very professional and friendly.

I was referred to come here, and I am so happy that I did. They couldn't have been any nicer. It was the most pleasant experience I could ever imagine for re-breaking a nose. Tara, Melissa, and Dr. Carniol were so accommodating, great listeners, overall comforting, helpful, and knowledgeable. The office was closed but he called me back and was able to squeeze in my emergency situation, and I am forever thankful.

Dr. Carniol provides excellent advice and always describes the benefits of each procedure option and the differences between them. He is also very straightforward in describing costs and post procedure expectations. He was recommended to me by another plastic surgeon who specializes in ocular repair - he said that if his wife was going to have any cosmetic procedures, he would send her to Dr. Carniol.

I have repeatedly been highly satisfied with my experience with Dr. Carniol and his professional staff. Dr. Carniol's knowledge of the non-evasive plastic surgery methods I was interested in made me feel confident in the decisions I made. Further, I was beyond thrilled with the results. I have a natural, youthful look that I wanted. Dr. Carniol is patient, takes his time to make sure the patient understands what is going on, and is meticulous at following up to make sure the patient is happy.

Dr. Carniol is all that one can ask for in a plastic surgeon. He listened carefully to my questions and concerns about two procedures: a large mole on my chin and facial rejuvenation with injectable fillers. His explanations were thorough and comprehensive so I understood options, procedures and the results I could expect. Dr. Carniol has a great aesthetic sense to complement his skills. I'm delighted with the outcome of his work- great, natural looking results with minimal procedures!
