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!!
I could not be more pleased with my experience with Dr. Mao and his entire staff. I had a chin implant with Liposuction on my neck in Feb. 2021. The results are natural and beautiful and my confidence level has peaked. The procedure itself was not nearly as big of a deal as I had imagined it to be, recovery was pretty easy as well. Having surgery on my face made me nervous but from the first visit I knew Dr Mao was a complete expert and I would be more than okay! I would not even consider going anywhere else!!
I am loving the results of my Facelift! Dr Mao is a talented and skilled surgeon. The aftercare was excellent. Both Dr Mao and his surgical nurse Amanda were compassionate and attentive threw out the process. I look like myself only refreshed. The results are very natural. Dr Mao came highly recommended from my dermatologist office. She said she sees lots of facelifts in her practice & DR Mao’s facelifts are the best. I couldn’t agree more. I had high expectations going in after hearing about his incredible reputation, I am happy to say Dr Mao & his staff exceeded my expectations. I couldn’t be happier with my results and I highly recommend him.
Dr. Mao turned back the hands of time by 10-15 years-seriously. And I look better than I ever have, even in my youth. Over the last few months, Dr. Mao performed multiple procedures including temple implants( never heard of those but they were transformative), buccal fat removal, upper bleph a revision rhinoplasty and finally, in a separate surgery, a deep plane facelift with neck lift. I almost have a new face! haha! My incisions are very well placed and inconspicuous as possible, they are healing very nicely with no complications or pain. His nurse Amanda, is supportive and helpful. Dr. Mao answers all my questions and has reassured me through the healing process. I’d feel very comfortable recommending Dr. Mao to anyone considering facial surgery!
My experience getting Botox with Dr. Mao was fantastic from start to finish. The friendly and knowledgeable staff got me a convenient appointment and made me feel comfortable right away. Dr Mao asked me what my desired outcome was and delivered exactly that. I wanted to get rid of my crows feet and forehead lines. His assistant even offered numbing cream (I declined). The procedure was super quick and virtually painless (the needles are so small it was honestly just a pinch). I was able to see some results within a couple of days and full results after a week — I could not be happier! My forehead is completely smooth and my crows feet are gone. My face is not frozen, it looks super natural and more youthful. I highly recommend seeing Dr Mao. He’s polite, professional and wonderful at what he does.
Amazing results. I’ve wanted my nose fixed for most of my life and I’ve always known that I wanted to go to dr.mao specifically. He’s really good at what he does, definitely exceeded my expectations. now I can actually say I like my nose 🖤
Dr. Mao is the best, he turned one of my biggest insecurities into my favorite feature. Him and his staff are so kind and willing to answer all your questions. Recovery also wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be and the results are very natural. Highly recommend him for anyone considering a rhinoplasty!!
I searched for the best plastic surgeon in the tri-state area for many months then I found Dr. Mao. I’m very impressed not only with his bedside manner but also his talent with three board certifications in facial plastic surgery. My friends were very intrigued about my natural-looking results which they can’t tell what I’ve done. I would recommend Dr. Mao for any facial procedure. I forgot to mention, is also a good-looking surgeon. Thank you so much, Dr. Mao and his amazing staff. 💜
Dr. Mao is an amazing surgeon that delivers natural looking results. Very pleased with my rhinoplasty results and would definitely recommend him to anyone who was looking to get plastic surgery without it looking drastic. Really do appreciate him and his team!
I saw Dr. Mao this summer for chin liposuction. I can tell you unequivocally that he (and the entire practice) are top notch. Dr. Mao has a very kind and comforting personality which is crucial when you are considering any kind of surgical procedure. My recovery took a long little longer than average, no-fault to Dr. Mao. As with anything, recovery time can be unpredictable. My results were worth the wait; I am extremely happy and have no regrets at all. If you are considering and researching surgeons, don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Mao. You will not be disappointed!!
Dr, Mao is both a skilled specialist and a nice person. I had my upper eyelids done as a result of excess skin. It went very smoothly. I recovered incredibly quickly and am totally happy with my results. I would highly recommend him.
Dr Mao is the absolute best. I went to him because of his true expertise on rhinoplasty surgery. My nose came out exactly how I wanted it. I had zero pain after surgery and no complications. I wanted a nose that was shaped better but I didn’t want to change my overall appearance and that’s exactly what I got! Dr Mao’s bedside manner is one of a kind the post op care is great he continually checks in to make sure everything is healing properly. I would definitely recommend Dr. Mao for any type of facial plastic surgery.
My experience with Dr. Mao was very professional. My first appointment was held via Facetime due to "COVID protocols". We spoke about why I wanted a nose job, and what features I like about my current nose. Fast forward a month I had my first consultation in person, where he took pictures of my nose and went over what the procedure would be like. Also, using a software to give me an idea of what my nose would look like after surgery. Six weeks after my surgery and I am healing up nicely. Recovery time, swelling, and bruising was much less than I expected. I now have the nose I always wanted and I credit Dr. Mao and his staff for making that all possible. If you are interested in rhinoplasty I recommend speaking to Dr. Mao. 10/10
I would highly recommend that you meet Dr Mao if you are considering rhinoplasty. First, Dr Mao has a great bedside manner. He is just naturally a nice human who clearly has passion for his work. He also listens - he is sure to hear what his patient finds to be the most concerning, and then he is sure that he takes that into account when planning surgery. Surgery and recovery were both very clearly explained, and the results are amazing. I truly will say to you, Dr Mao is an artist. He truly sculpted my nose in the way that best suited my face, and it looks completely natural and beautiful. I feel so fortunate that it is Dr Mao that I chose to do this surgery. I would recommend Dr Mao 100% for anyone considering facial surgery.
It’s been a little over two months since my deep plane facelift with Dr. Mao. I could not be happier with the result! My neck looks amazing and the sagging in my lower face is gone. The result is very subtle and natural looking. Dr. Mao is an extremely talented surgeon with a warm and compassionate manner. He and his staff made very comfortable throughout the process and answered all of my questions pre and post op. Dr. Mao is the only surgeon I will trust with my face in the future. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Mao performed my septoplasty and I have never breathed more easily! He and Amanda ensured I felt supported and informed from pre to post-op. Cannot recommend highly enough!
As a healthcare professional and a male I was very hesitant to undergo a rhinoplasty/septoplasty. After a consultation with Dr. Mao I was pleased with his bedside manner, thorough explanation of the process, and anatomical assessment of my "ethnic dorsal hump." My recovery existed of minimal pain and my breathing drastically improved a month after surgery (be patient). My taste, sense of smell, and nasally voice has also improved. I highly recommend Dr. Mao and his services for I am more than pleased with the outcome of my surgery after putting it off for many years.
I had my rhinoplasty done by Dr. Mao back in February of this year, and I couldn’t be more pleased. It has changed my life in ways I couldn’t have imagined. He answered any questions I had very thoroughly, was readily available when I wanted an additional appointment before going through with the surgery, and reassured any concerns I had. He was awesome with the follow up too! I highly recommend him, especially with nose concerns. A lot of surgeons I researched around where I live (Massachusetts) had a lot of alright work, but as soon as I saw Dr. Mao’s I was blown away. I’m half way healed and it’s literally already perfect and only going to get better!
I am extremely impressed with Dr. Mao. I left my appointments with a “not rushed” feeling. He took the time to explain what was and wasn't possible as a revision rhinoplasty and septoplasty patient. Because I was so nervous initially, Dr. Mao even met with me twice to review my case so that I did not have false expectations. I'm so pleased with my results!! Dr. Mao is Triple Board Certified! You're not going to find another surgeon in this area who has the same qualifications. He works solely on the face and neck and he is, simply put, an artist! In addition, I found him to be kind with an excellent bedside manner. Each member of Dr. Mao's office staff goes out of their way to be pleasant, kind, and accommodating. Marie and Amanda were especially in sweet to me and very helpful throughout the entire process. I've had other procedures in the past in other offices. I would highly recommend Dr. Mao!
