Before meeting Dr. Shafer, I had several appointments with other plastic surgeons. My very close friend recommended that I see Dr. Shafer. Since I knew my friend was very particular and a great RN, I went for the appointment. I brought my list of questions regarding my face lift. He answered each question in detail. His enthusiasm and passion made me feel so relaxed, yet eager to move on to the surgery.

I am 59 years old and had my face lift. I was back to work in two weeks with a new refreshed look. I have received comments that I look well rested since my "two week vacation". I have four sisters that I love dearly. I would recommend each one of them to see Dr. Shafer.

I must thank Dr. Shafer each day for the surgery and my friend for the best reference. Dr. Shafer is my hero.
