Patient Profile Stories

The entries below are from past patients who wanted to share their stories after undergoing facial plastic surgery procedures from Dr. John Hilinski. These stories reveal the impact surgery can have on one’s self-confidence and how this can translate to so many other areas of life. Seeing the excitement on our patients’ faces when they see their results for the first time is what we love most about helping them achieve their aesthetic goals. If you are interested in sharing your story, please email Dr. Hilinski with an update on life after surgery. We would love to hear from you!



Hi Dr. Hilinski,

I just wanted to reach out to you quickly. I am still doing clinical research but I wanted to let you know that I started to do some fitness modeling part–time and will be featured in a couple of magazines! It’s been very exciting and I felt compelled to tell you because you should get partial credit. I can’t tell you how many makeup artists have complemented your natural work. I will be in the July 2014 issue of Max Sports and Fitness and also a Canadian fashion magazine called Ellements.

Thanks again for all your good work

It is always a nice surprise to see one of my past patients gracing the cover of a magazine. This one is Michelina James, a model and registered nurse, on the recent cover of San Diego Magazine. Great job Michelina!
