“Dr. Passaretti did a lower facelift and a laser skin resurfacing to soften my lines. After a month of healing, I have no lines and my jawline is better than I could have ever imagined it. I would highly recommend him for anyone wanting to improve their looks. I was able to resume most of my activities after 2 weeks and now that it has been over a month since the procedure I can do everything. The doctor and staff care about you and make sure that there are follow up visits to make sure everything is healing properly. I was promised I would be in very little pain and that was absolutely true.”
