Dr. Mao did a fantastic job on my nose! His staff was warm and made you feel comfortable throughout the entire process! I would definitely recommend him to anyone!
Dr Mao and his team are the best! I have gone to them for several procedures and each time I have been more than happy with my results. Plus dr mao’s bedside manner is like no other. Anytime I email him (even years after) for questions I get a response within 24 hours. He’s the best and highly recommend!
I recently had 2 eye procedures performed by the man, the myth, the legend, Dr Johnny Mao. What a great man. I wanted to take a minute to express my sincere thankfulness to Dr Mao, and his incredible staff, especially Amanda. Doctor Mao, & Amanda, A heartfelt gratitude to you both. The incredible care I received at your office made me feel much more at ease, and much more comfortable regarding my procedures. Dr Mao’s skills and dedication to his craft really transformed my life in a way I never imagined possible. I am extremely thrilled with the results, and I appreciate the time they both took explaining everything, and addressing all my concerns (Which were not that many. right Amanda? LoL). 😂 😂 Dr Mao, You are truly a REMARKABLE surgeon, and I am so grateful to have been under your direct care. 👍 daver
Dr. Mao is incredibly talented, gentle and gifted as a surgeon. I couldn’t be happier with his work. Thank you to Dr. Mao and your wonderful nurse Amanda!!
From Barbara P. - Dr. Mao has done my face lift, neck lift, and CO2 laser; however, even though all yielded dramatic transformations, I must give Dr, Mao kudos for something he corrected which had bothered me for nearly all my adult life, and that was the severe tears to my earlobes as a result of wearing heavy earrings, and drooping with age. With his signature artistic eye, he repaired and shaped my earlobes in a way that was so natural, that his modifications were undetectable! Now I can pull my hair back, sport new earrings with confidence knowing my new earlobes are in keeping with my face and neck procedures. I have now scheduled another CO2 and a Blepharoplasty, as I trust no one more than Dr. Mao and his extraordinary nurse, Amanda, both of whom have always demonstrated concern compassion, and expertise beyond anyone’s expectations. If plastic surgery is a consideration for you, please book a consultation with Dr. Mao. You will not be disappointed.
From Barbara P. - Fantastic work!
Dr. Johnny Mao is by far the best plastic surgeon I have found in the metropolitan area. His expertise and artistic eye have afforded me the facelift and necklift I have desired for many years. My results have been noticeable, yet natural, which is a balance that is not often attained by most surgeons. I feel and look refreshed with a smoother, more supple, yet firm appearance. My neck is sculpted and without wrinkles now! As a follow up, I elected to have a Fractional CO2, in order to remove dark spots and sun damage, and believe me, it enhanced the work Dr Mao did during surgery! I wholeheartedly endorse Dr. Mao's work, as his professionalism, care, and execution of his craft are all to which every plastic surgeon should aspire. His staff, and especially his nurse, Amanda, mirror his commitment to his patients. Amanda has availed herself to meet my needs before, during, and after surgery, which has really added a personal touch to my experiences there. She is the perfect complement to Dr. Mao. Mere words belie the trust and respect I have for Dr. Mao and his staff. I would go to no one else for any cosmetic procedure.
Dr. Mao did an outstanding job on my eyelid ptosis repair. I couldn’t be any happier with my results and wish that I had done the procedure sooner. He is quite meticulous and explained the different measurements of eyelids which I did not even know it mattered. His staff was very friendly and accommodating. The entire experience was positive. I would highly recommend Dr. Mao for any eyelid surgery.
I have been a patient of Dr. Mao for several years and have had multiple procedures done. This last one was a second facelift. At first, my face swelled up so bad that I couldn't recognize myself. But after 2-3 weeks, I saw big improvements. The wrinkles to the sides of my mouth are gone. My face looks more slim and lifted. My jawlines are crisp! I now look younger than my 10 years younger boyfriend. Chuckle! I totally trust Dr. Mao. He is an outstanding surgeon and cares a lot about his work!
Over the last couple years, I have had several rounds of Botox and fillers from Dr. Mao, and the experience and result were extremely positive. At first, my intent was to explore options to correct asymmetry between my eyebrows and a surgery timeline for my droopy eye lids. Dr. Mao explained in detail what surgical procedure can do and possible side effects and risks. In the end, he recommended that I start with Botox and fillers first. I couldn't be more pleased with the results. His injection points actually lifted one of my eye brows, making them look more symmetrical. The fillers compensated my loss of collagen from aging. All in all, no one believed I have lived half a century, and if someone asks what my secret is, I am afraid Dr. Mao would be part of the answers! I am still looking at the timeline for him to lift my lids... I wouldn't go to anyone else but him.
My experience with Dr. Johnny Mao and his assistant Amanda was outstanding from the first time I walked into his office. I’ve had 2 rhinoplasty’s in the past years and was looking for a revision. I was very nervous about going through a third but Dr. Mao answered all of my questions and made me feel more confident and relaxed. I can’t tell you how thrilled I am with the results of my revision rhinoplasty. I finally feel more confident with my new nose! Dr. Mao has the best bed side manners on top of being an awesome surgeon. My results are very natural looking. Amanda was so patient with me and answered all of my emails and phone calls while going through the recovery process. They are the best team! I definitely recommend Dr. Johnny Mao!
I recently had my eyes done with Dr Mao. Initially my family was against plastic surgery but after the procedure I looked younger and more awake. And best of all I can see things much brighter. THANK YOU Dr Mao!!!
The Doctor Mao is the best doctor and I recommend him for facial rejuvenation.
The best !!!!
I’ve had Botox and fillers from several physicians and at different med spas over the years and Dr. Mao is by far the best! He helped me achieve the natural, wrinkle free look I’ve always wanted. Dr. Mao and his nurse Amanda offer a calm, relaxed environment where they take the extra time to listen to the patients goals and expectations to ensure the best outcome. When I’m ready for my facelift I’ll only trust Dr. Mao!
I got rhinoplasty with Dr. Mao about two years ago. Today, I looked at old family photos. I forgot all the feelings of self hate I once had felt. All the times i never showed my true smile or laugh because of my nose. I can’t even believe I felt so terrible. After surgery, I did not walk out the most prettiest person in the world. Instead I walked out with my life, with joy. I can’t even remember fully how it felt to feel so terrible, it’s been two years of nothing but this happiness, smiles, and laughs. I smile in photos with the kids! They get to see my real, authentic, never second guessing myself, smile! Thank you Dr Mao! I do love my nose but I am especially grateful for the joy you’ve brought into my life.
I highly recommend Dr Mao. He did an amazing job.
I recently underwent upper and lower blepharoplasty surgery performed by Dr. Mao, and I am incredibly impressed with the results. Dr. Mao's surgical skills and attention to detail are exceptional, resulting in a natural and refreshed look that surpassed my expectations. The recovery process was smooth, and Dr. Mao's detailed instructions made it easy to follow. Thank you for the fantastic work, Dr. Mao!
I’ve been wanting to do chin augmentation and also started noticing skin laxity on my neck, under chin & jowl. I have very good skin, It’s not noticeable to others but it bothers me. I look more tired in the pictures. I started to research of plastic surgeons with the skills and good bedside manner. When I read Dr. Mao’s reviews and saw his patients’ before and after pictures , I felt like I found my surgeon. His practice is 1.5 hours away without traffic. Dr Mao was immediately put me at ease with his bedside manner. No questions are too dumb. He suggested deep plane facelift along with chin augmentation. I was shocked at his suggestion. I came for mini procedure not the full deep plane facelift. He further explained deep plane facelift would produce more natural result as it move the facial / neck tissue in 1 unit and address neck ,lower face & part of mid face. He also suggested to do it under local anesthesia. As a nurse, I understand that general anesthesia is more risky, nausea & vomiting after face procedure is certainly not desirable. He’s the first surgeon that I had a consult with, I trusted his opinion and decided to proceed. He prescribed me oral antibiotics, pain and anti anxiety medication to be taken the day of surgery. To my surprise, I could manage the procedure under local anesthesia. I could hear what’s going on but was not fully aware. He completed one side of the face , then I was instructed to empty my bladder before moving on to the other side. It was like a twilight zone. My whole head was bandaged tightly. Recovery was tough. My face swelled up like a football 🏈. He prescribed prednisone taper to reduce swelling. I have to say this procedure is not for the faint of heart. I looked lopsided, my mouth couldn’t fully opened. I was so scared that I would look “botched”. I reached Dr Mao on the weekend in which he responded right away and reassured me that what I was experiencing was normal. I documented my recovery in pictures and emailed his nurse Amanda who was very responsive and reassured me that my recovery was on target. I returned to work after less than 2 weeks, covered my face with mask 😷. I still looked off. I was disheartened and started to ask myself if I made a mistake. Both Dr. Mao & his nurse were very supportive throughout this emotional roller coaster. After 3 weeks, I started to turn a corner and I had hope that I would be just fine. One of my biggest fear is to lose my self identity. Moving forward, 4 months post op, I cannot be happier. I look like my younger self in mid thirties. My result is very natural and yet my profile is enhanced, neck and jowls are snatched. The best Christmas present for myself. Thank you, Dr Mao & Nurse Amanda for your expertise, patience for dealing my emotional recovery journey and excellent result.
I have been seeing Dr. Mao for Botox and Filler for many years. I have been to several other MD's in the past and his skill and eye for aesthetics is the best that I have experienced. The entire office staff is warm and professional. I am planning a Rhinoplasty in the near future and Dr. Mao will absolutely be my surgeon. Highly recommend!!
Dr. Mao and Amanda, as a team, are unbeatable. They work tirelessly to ensure the best possible outcome for each patient. Dr Mao views his patients with pride, and every detail of his work is flawless and natural. He has a critical eye that is unmatched. His nurse, Amanda, is phenomenal. Warm and caring, she makes sure you are comfortable before, during,, and after any procedure you may choose. I did find the office staff to be less than professional at times, but Amanda always personally tends to each patient. Quite a remarkable team.
I had rhinoplasty with Dr. Mao in November and my results are fantastic. Dr. Mao did exactly what I asked for and my nose came out even better than I expected. I’m so happy that I did this and I have gotten so many compliments. My sister is so impressed that she is going to book a consultation for herself. I can’t recommend him enough!
I am so glad I chose Dr. Mao for my rhinoplasty surgery. Dr. Mao and His staff were so kind and welcoming. They answered all the questions I had. Dr.Mao was very understanding of what I wanted done to my nose. He made me feel so comfortable throughout the whole process. My nose came out exactly how I wanted it to. I wanted my bump removed and I wanted it to look natural and smaller. That’s exactly how my nose came out. I have always been so self conscious about my nose and now I feel so confident about it. Im so glad I didn’t go anywhere else I am so happy with the results! if you are looking to get a rhinoplasty go to Dr. Mao, he’s the best!
I had a really great experience with Dr.Mao. The whole process went really smooth & easy and I was comfortable the whole time. Him and the staff are super nice and welcoming. He also seems confident in his work and you can tell he wants the best results for his patients which made me even more comfortable. I got an otoplasty surgery, and couldn’t be happier with my results. I would recommend him x1000 for any surgery he offers :)!
First two pictures are before and the last three pictures are after. I got my surgery last year august 31 2021 and the healing process was worth the wait. I am so happy with my results. Since I was young I’ve been self conscious of my profile, with my chin going a bit too in and my nose too out. I wanted it to be proportionate and dr Johnny mao did just that. Everyone is always surprised I’ve gotten surgery before because he made it look so natural. I got a chin implant and a nose job and I’m very happy with the results ☺️☺️
My experience was great with Dr. Mao and his team. Dr. Mao was attentive and informative and gave me honest advice as well as kept my expectations realistic. I felt that he delivered what I wanted as best he can without compromising my health in any way and I really appreciate that. His assistant Amanda was also very helpful, attentive and considerate. I am very happy with the results of my procedure.
After undergoing a deep plain facelift, chin lipo, and upper & lower blepharoplasty with Dr. Mao last year, I was so pleased with the results that I recently had a revision rhinoplasty and under eye laser treatment. My original rhinoplasty was ok but the tip was drooping and my nostrils were too large for my face. Dr. Mao did an absolutely flawless job! I had the other procedures done at the same time under general anesthesia but underwent the rhinoplasty procedure in his office (awake) with his wonderful assistant, Amanda. Everything went according to plan with no issues at all. Dr. Mao is a gem! He is patient, kind, talented and you can tell that he loves his profession. I am very happy that I made the decision to rejuvenate my appearance and I could not have chosen a better doctor than Dr. Mao.
Thrilled with the results. Dr. Mao is very professional and caring - great pre-op by Amanda. The procedure was explained in detail and any questions or concerns were promptly addressed. Very happy I had the surgery and will continue to be a patient in the future. I can recommend Mao Facial Plastic Surgery without hesitation.
Dr Mao made me feel so comfortable off the bat. He listened to me, cared about what I was saying and made my nose perfect. When I went in for the consultation he not only asked why I was getting the rhinoplasty but made sure I was doing it for the right reasons, which made me feel even better. After the surgery he made sure to answer any questions I had. I am beyond happy with my new nose and I'm so happy that I met with Dr. Mao. He changed my life!
I can't say enough about how happy I am that I had Dr. Mao fix my droopy eyelids and remove the puffy (bags) from under my eyes. Not only do my eyes look fantastic, but even more importantly, the lids were affecting my vision more than I realized, because now I don't need my distance glasses as much. It's so natural looking that people don't know I had surgery- they just comment that I look great! Awesome place, Awesome Dr Mao, and his wonderful nurse!! I am thrilled with my eyes!! Thank you Dr. Mao!
LIP AUGMENTATION: Dr. Mao is a personable, knowledgeable, and very skilled physician with a humerous personality. I went in feeling anxious about what to expect. I left feeling confident and educated about the stages of healing, aftercare, and result. I highly recommend Dr. Mao for your luxurious natural lip look.
I had my upper and lower lids done to reduce the sagginess and the puffiness. In the past I’ve always resisted the idea of having anything done to my face because I was always afraid it would not look natural (I’d rather live with what I've got instead of looking ‘freaky’). I heard about Dr. Mao through word of mouth, and I decided to get my lids fixed. The upper lids were sagging, and I got huge pouches on the lower lids. The procedure went well; I could barely feel any pain. My face was swollen for a week for two, but with very little pain. Dr. Mao, Amanda (his assistant), and his staff were very nice! It’s been 5 months and I am so happy with the results. I doesn’t look like anything was done to my eye areas but now I have no sagging on the upper lid and the pouches under the lower lid are gone. It was so important to me that I look natural after the procedure, and Dr. Mao gave me that. Overall, it was a very positive experience, and I would highly recommend Dr. Mao to others. I, myself, if I were to need further work, I’d definitely go back there!
After years of research, I'm so happy I found Dr. Mao! He made me feel comfortable throughout the entire process, and I appreciate his honesty in terms of keeping my expectations realistic. Every staff member I've met at the office has been super sweet, and someone was always available to answer any questions I had. I'm only about 2 months post rhinoplasty but already completely satisfied with the results. My friends and family all agree that my nose looks very natural, and most importantly, I still look like me! I truly trust Dr. Mao and would recommend him to anyone considering cosmetic facial surgery. If I ever want something else done in the future, I won't go anywhere else 🙂
After researching plastic surgeons, I chose Dr. Mao because he is strictly a facial cosmetic surgeon and, after looking at his website, his work speaks for itself. Initially, I was going to get 2-3 different opinions. Dr. Mao was my first appointment and after meeting him, I decided I did not have to look any further. Dr. Mao is professional, kind and has an artist’s eye. I don't know how else to put it but he is a delightful person! I had a deep plane facelift, neck lift, chin liposuction and upper and lower blepharoplasty. I couldn’t be happier with the results. I am thrilled with my upper and lower blepharoplasty – I no longer look tired all the time! Dr. Mao’s staff is also wonderful. I’ll admit I was a nervous wreck prior to surgery and his assistant, Amanda, was so patient, caring and always available to answer all my questions. I highly recommend Dr. Mao. From start to finish - it was a completely positive experience!
I had gotten a rhinoplasty back in December 2020. I’m currently 10 months post up and I couldn’t be any happier with my results. Dr. Mao really did his thing. The staff was very helpful in keeping me well informed. Very smooth process and Dr.Mao was always available to speak if I had any questions or concerns.
After a few months of researching plastic surgeons in CT, I found Dr. Mao and I'm so thankful that I did. The 1st thing that stood out to me was that he is triple board certified and specializes in facial plastic surgery. The next was that every rhinoplasty before and after in his gallery online was different but always natural looking. He doesn't just give everyone the same nose like you see in a lot of other plastic surgeons. Dr. Mao was extremely helpful throughout the entire process and always available when I had questions. I was very nervous going into surgery but he made me feel at ease. I am now almost 1 year post op and could not be happier with the results! I was always self conscious about my side profile but happy to say that is no longer the case thanks to Dr. Mao. I highly recommend Dr. Mao to anyone considering a rhinoplasty or any facial plastic surgery.
Sharing my terrific experience with Dr Mao. I recently had a deep plane face and brow lift with Dr Mao and I'm so thrilled with the results. I look exactly the way I did when I was younger! Or, admittedly even better! I am 44 years old and would have to go back to my late 20's to find a picture of myself that matches how youthful I look now. Dr Mao gave me exactly what I wanted, and even more. I had an easy surgery, very easy recovery and overall a great experience. Dr Mao is so nice, never rushes you, is always available, answers calls on weekends and even held the office open late for me to come in after work once. There are few doctors who are so kind. And his nurse Amanda is exactly the person you would want by your side during surgery, and every step of the way before and after. She is so caring and takes care of every concern right away. If you are looking for a really good natured, extremely talented surgeon you have to go see Dr Mao!
Professional, thorough, and efficient. Dr. Mao and his team are extremely talented and made my whole experience positive. They take pride in their work and I am 100% satisfied with my results. Any questions, they are willing to answer and they even walk you step by step for the procedure!
I chose Dr. Mao for my surgery based on his online gallery of client results and reviews. Dr. Mao and his staff were professional, articulate, and comprehensive from start to finish. The entire process was clearly explained and no question was unanswered. During surgery Dr. Mao and Amanda had a wonderful rapport and I felt as if I was in a comforting environment and with a highly skilled surgeon and nurse. Dr. Mao has a very honest approach and I appreciate his calm personality. Amanda, his assistant/RN has such a friendly personality, who also portrays confidence and intelligence. I am only 6 weeks out from my face and neck surgery and my results have exceeded my expectations so far. I look like myself only years younger with no more jowls and neck wrinkles. I would highly recommend Dr. Mao and have absolutely no reservations about referring him. I am truly grateful that I entrusted him to give me this amazing new refreshed face.
Dr Mao has such a wonderful, professional manner that is exquisitely unique to this industry. He and his team provided the most excellent, professional, care in their execution of their aesthetic service. They are all knowledgeable, honest and kind with just the right touch of humor to make the entire experience so easy. I had a rhinoplasty and blepharoplasty done- and then i had Dr Mao inject some fillers. The results are better than my expectations. I look natural and not overdone or obvious. Dr Mao made sure i was comfortable from our very first meeting. He’s very receptive to questions -even my embarrassing silly ones. I would recommend Dr Mao to anyone looking for the very best care.
I had done a rhinoplasty with Dr. Mao and I am pleased to say that I am happy with my results. Dr. Mao and his team were very nice to me and made me feel welcome as well. The process of my rhinoplasty journey was amazing with Dr. Mao, Dr. Mao gave me the nose Ive always wanted and he gave me confidence with my nose. I recommend that anyone goes to him! Amazing job.
Dr. Mao does great work. He made sure he understood exactly what I wanted. Despite revision rhinoplasties being even more difficult than the first rhinoplasty, it’s clear that Dr Mao is very experienced and he did an amazing job. He helped me feel more confident and breathe better. I’m only a few months out post-op and I’m already super pleased. Amanda is also very friendly and helpful and let me know I could contact her for any questions or concerns. Price-wise my procedure was very reasonable and cheaper than other surgeons I was looking at. I’m super glad I chose Dr Mao and I highly recommend him and his team.
3 years ago I got a rhinoplasty by a doctor and he completely botched it. Two years after that I began to look for a new doctor that could do a revision rhinoplasty. Months and months of researching doctors I could not find a doctor that I felt comfortable with and would trust to operate on my nose again until I found Dr. Mao. The first time I met with Dr. Mao he was so nice and told me exactly what could be done to my nose. His nurse Amanda was also extremely helpful and nice and answered any questions I had. I was still hesitant after what had happened to my nose the first time so I went for a second appointment with Dr. Mao. He answered any questions and concerns I had, gave me reassurance that what happened the first time would definitely not happen again and even showed me a 3D photograph to give me an idea of what he would do to my nose. I am so glad I chose Dr. Mao to do my revision rhinoplasty. He completely exceeded my expectations. I’ve received so many compliments just two weeks post op and it still has a year and a half For full results. Dr. Mao has amazing bedside manner and he even came to me after surgery with pictures he took in the operating room. He is truly amazing at what he does and I would one hundred percent recommend him to anyone. Going from getting a rhinoplasty to being even more self conscious than I was before the first surgery, Dr. Mao gave me everything I could have wanted and the nose I asked for. I can’t thank him enough for how amazing he did and making me feel so confident again!
Wow! I don’t know where to begin! I’ll start by saying I absolutely loved Dr.Mao and his staff! The professionalism and great personalities are radiating! The office is immaculate, the prices are beyond reasonable and the results were better then I even expected! I would highly recommend his services and am extremely happy I chose him! I’d give him 10 stars if I could!!
