“Can’t say enough about our experience with Dr. Christian Paquet. I brought my son to see him for a rhinoplasty, and it has changed his life. His nose is now perfectly straight, without a bump, and looks completely natural. My son is over the moon happy. Dr. Paquet is caring and truly interested in patient care, unlike other doctors we saw that just tried to rush us out. He is extremely professional and makes you feel comfortable. I have already recommended him to everyone. If you are shopping around for plastic surgeons do yourself a favor and stop… and go see Dr. Paquet. I will be back for my facelift in a few years :).”
“Dr. P and his entire office staff were so pleasant and wonderful throughout the entire experience. After my initial consultation I felt completely confident that I had chosen the right surgeon, and now my results prove it. He took time to explain the procedures and discuss all of my option. I was uncertain about surgery at first, but he put all of my doubts and fears to rest. He was patient and never rushed me. I am so grateful for the care that he gave me. He is an amazing surgeon. My eyes look spectacular and I will only be seeing him in the future.”
"I can honestly recommend Dr. Paquet without hesitation. He is not only kind and professional, but he is a perfectionist. He is extremely meticulous and is a true artist. Everybody constantly comments on how great I look, but nobody can ever pinpoint why. Exactly what I want! I am so happy I found a genuinely talented plastic surgeon. I absolutely love my results!"
“Dr. Paquet, thank you for my fantastic nose! I can finally breathe for the first time in as long as I can remember, and my nose looks amazing. It is beyond what I had hoped for. Thanks for being so patient with me and answering my endless questions. I can finally look in the mirror and feel completely happy with my appearance. You’re the best!!”
