I did my homework and I was actually referred to him by one of my girlfriends. She had a really bad experience with a previous doctor and she highly recommended Dr. Frankel. He corrected her nose, which most doctors would have never corrected or touched it. I was very impressed with his work and also his background and his expertise in the field. The consultation was very informative. I felt very comfortable. He just made me feel that I was going to be OK and there was to worry about and that he was going to correct my problem. It wasn’t as painful as I thought it would be. A couple of days later were really rough but overall it was OK. I mean I didn't bruise a lot because he gave me some Arnica pills. You know, it was good and bad. I had minimal bruising and I was better within 10 days. It was never noticeable that I had this procedure done. It took my nose a long time to really settle in. I would say just about a year. It was a little longer with the way with the length of time it took to heal but then it was fine. Dr. Frankel is very friendly, he shows concern about your feelings and that he understands the patient, and I think that's a great characteristic in any doctor. The staff were lovely, always very friendly and any questions that I had they were pretty easy going and straightforward. I set my appointment and came in and everyone was just lovely. They're very friendly.
Dr. Frankel gave me a Lower Facelift on November 2nd. I've had experience with Dr. Frankel in the past. He's done other work for me, and I just wouldn't go to any other doctor but Dr. Frankel. I've known him for awhile, and so he is just very personable and very thorough with his explanations and what you should expect and just very informative. You're totally given all information before, and a couple of weeks before what you should do, what you should not do beforehand and then they're always on top of everything like the day before. Like two days before you come in and then a day before, they call you. Everybody in his office is wonderful. You'll never feel rushed in his office by anyone, and they're very accommodating. Then, of course, the day of the surgery when I went home, I was called by Dr. Frankel in the evening and made sure everything was fine and again called the next day to follow up. I seem to look far more refreshed, but I look like the same person. I do not look a different person which I've seen a number of other doctors do surgery and the person doesn't look like themselves. I look like myself. It's terrific. He is the best.
Dr. Frankel was highly recommended. I just liked everything that I read about him and after our consultation I felt very confident that it was the right fit. I love that he was able to do the photo imaging because I wanted to be sure that the picture in my mind was the same picture in his mind. They emailed them to me, so I looked at them through the next week. In that short meeting with Dr. Frankel, he explained everything to me, how the procedure will work he answered all of my questions and he was very honest with how long my recovery would take, what the procedure would actually be like. So I looked at the pictures over the next week and I called him because I wanted to sort of change one of the things we had talked about, and it all worked out really well.
On Dec. 10, I had procedures with Dr. Frankel that included a Facelift, Mid-Facelift, and Blepharoplasty and Laser Treatment. It was something I had wanted to have done but the problem was in finding the right surgeon. I had been to Dr. Frankel in the past so I went back and knew right then he was the right person to do the surgery. It was just the competence and comfort level. I'm not a medical person, but the way he advised me about the procedures made the most sense. Everything about the procedures was great. It was a stressful time for me but everyone made me feel very comfortable. And the results are great. I couldn't have chosen a better surgeon. He is very knowledgeable and he cares about his patients. He is someone I would highly recommend for plastic surgery.
I had a revision rhinoplasty with Dr. Frankel. I’d seen in a magazine that he is one of the best for revision rhinoplasty so I made an appointment and went to see him and I loved him. He was very honest, explained everything thoroughly and he cared a lot about what I was thinking. The staff is very, very nice and the follow-ups were very good. The recovery was quick and easy and I didn’t have pain at all. I was in a week later to get the cast removed. The results are very good and I’m very happy. It’s still a little bit swollen but it looks much better than it originally did.
I cannot say enough amazing things about Dr. Richard Fleming. I originally scheduled a consultation with him only to have someone to compare another surgeon to (one that I was planning to scheduling a rhinoplasty with). Dr. Fleming and his staff were professional, thorough, and so helpful from the beginning that I immediately realized that his experience and expertise far outshined that of the majority of plastic surgeons out there. Even at this early stage, I am already enthusiastically recommending him to others looking for a rhinoplasty, and I will continue to do so!
This was my first plastic surgery. I am very pleased with both Dr. Fleming and the staff at Beverly Hills Institute. Dr. Fleming and his staff were always courteous and willing to answer questions, they were thorough in explaining what to expect before, during and post operation. Dr. Fleming's wonderful skill and precision are witnessed in the surgery he conducted on me. I am extremely impressed with Dr. Fleming aptitude to improve my beauty. I highly recommend Dr. Fleming!
Dr Fleming and his staff are very welcoming and show that they truly care for you. They followed up after my surgery and made sure that all my questions were answered. Dr Fleming's years of experience, care, professionalism and attention to detail are a guarantee that you will not regret your time spent with him. Before deciding on your doctor, make sure you consult with him. He is a real artist! I would choose him again and again.
I had done lots of research and had a good idea of what I wanted before I came in- based on my goals - they suggested the exact things I wanted to do. I ended up the exact size I was hoping for. I had zero complications and they look perfect. The surgeon was very professional and to the point.
I could NOT be happier with my results. Dr. Smaili is truly a miracle worker. I was so ecstatic with my results that I have recommended both my sisters to Dr. Smaili for their procedures. My husband's words "He truly is gifted" Thank you Dr. Smaili!
