Best Ever !!, October 6, 2006, 8:56 am
I have read the review of Dr Robert Brink submitted on July 15, 2006 by a subscriber named pingapid. It was very negative to the point of being ludicrous. I mailed this person with my opinion and never received any reply.I am posting here in hopes of leveling the playing field of Dr Brink ‘s review and correcting an obvious disservice to one of the country's top plastic surgeons.
I am 59, live in the SF Bay Area, and recently retired. I once had attractive youthful good looks but time and long hours of work had taken their toll.I did exhaustive research, both thru the Web and with several fee based services, to find the best Plastic Surgeon available at any cost to help restore and rejeuvenate my appearance.My choices were narrowed down to Doctors .....Ristow, Martens, Romano, and Brink.
I chose Dr Robert Brink who is a graduate of Harvard, the University of Michigan Medical School and trained at UC San Francisco. Dr. Brink has been in private practice for over 25 years. Today, he is recognized as one of the premier plastic surgeons in the nation. He has incredible artistic sense and earned a listing in Castle-Connally’s Nationwide List of Top Doctors.
I found Dr Brink above all to be a no-nonsense professional who will tell you frankly what he can and cannot expect to achieve. Believe me when I tell you that he achieves a lot more than he ever promises!
I have to tell you that I could not be happier with these results.... On May 30. 2006 I had Open Rhino, and Lipo of my chest and neck areas.
On August 9, 2006, he performed a coronal browlift w/ incision at hairline, a full SMAS facelift, Lower Bleph, and Fat grafts below eyes.
On September 26, 2006 he finished fine tuning my look with Upper Bleph, and some veinous ligation around the orbital areas. The ligation was necessary after the lower fat bags had been removed since the surface veins that I had since youth had become more visibly prominent once the fat was removed from around my eyes.
I am now 10 days removed from the the final procedure....I look and feel great and could not be more satisfied. The results are amazing and my wife is looking forward to next summer when she can have her work done...She's a few years younger and won't need as much work as I did!
Dr Brink has recently transferred his long established practice to Dr Joel Beck who is 23 years younger and also an excellent surgeon. It is called " Bay Area Aesthetic Surgery ". They are now working as a team until Dr Brink finally decides to retire, which I personally hope is never. The facility is beautiful and conveniently located off Hwy 92 in San Mateo Ca.The staff is wonderful. Angie,who still looks 30, has been the office coordinator with Dr Brink for over 20 years.
I could have used any Doctor that I wanted and now would never dream of using anyone else in the world.....
I now look in my mid forties and plan to turn 60 next month......Thanks Again Dr Brink!
