Dr. Buckingham & Staff, Thank you for the beautiful roses to brighten my recovery

Dr. Buckingham & Staff, Thank you for the beautiful roses to brighten my recovery. This surgery has made such a difference, significantly relieving my allergic asthma, sleep apnea, sinuses and giving me back my sense of smell. Plus, it looks great! Many kudos and thanks!

I’m a 66 years mature man

I’m a 66 years mature man. My generation never gave facial plastic surgery a thought until the last few years. That’s right, things have changed and as a result these types of procedures are more readily accepted by all men. Dr. Buckingham runs a very professional and streamlined administrative operation. That’s one thing that many Docs suck at. But more importantly, he is the penultimate sculptor of the face. When one finds a consummate professional such as Dr.B who immerses himself in the study of the art of the face and becomes the most accomplished and masterful surgeon on the planet, you just hire him. He far exceeded my expectations.
