How did a YouTube video make this patient travel from Switzerland to Bedminster, New Jersey? He was searching on the internet for a Revision Direct Brow Lift and came across our YouTube channel. After arranging a Skype consultation with Dr. Janjua, the patient decided to travel to Bedminster and have Dr. J perform the procedure. He will be staying in New Jersey until the stitches are removed. Unfortunately, the patient is a private person, so we cannot show you any photos or videos of his experience. We will keep you posted on his progress, and you can watch the video that helped him make this life changing decision.
What brought Christopher from London, England to Bedminster, New Jersey? Christopher is a 41-year-old African-American male who was searching the internet and came across African-American rhinoplasty blogs on various websites. During his search, he discovered our practice in Bedminster, NJ. He contacted our office and set up a Skype consultation. He told me that he was tired of getting looks from people because of his wide flaring nostrils. After speaking on Skype, he felt very comfortable and I told to come have his surgery done in New Jersey. My office staff helped him with his travel plans and lodging arrangements, which they do on a regular basis for out-of-state patients. Christopher arrived and had the rhinoplasty done without any issues in a pain-free and comfortable atmosphere. He was amazed by the ease of the procedure.
For lower eyelid wrinkles, the best option is “Thermismooth.” It is a noninvasive radio frequency treatment of the skin that takes 10 mins and about 4 sessions to soften those lines. It does not require any special preparation and is not painful. The hand piece looks like a pen and the metal wand feels like a hard stone. Soft gel is applied and the hand piece is rolled all over the skin as it starts heating the skin slowly and gradually. At the end of the treatment, the skin appears to be pink and this does not last longer than a few hours. The treatment can been repeated no earlier than 3 weeks and most individuals notice improvement after every session.
It is well known that any modality that is used to create the under eye wrinkles will have a better result if Botox or any similar botulinum toxin has been used to paralyze the underlying muscle orbicularis oculi. If possible, you should consider getting Botox treatment prior to undergoing Thermismooth treatments. If Thermismooth is not available in your area, you can definitely consider other modalities such as Microdermabrasion, dermal pens, chemical peel and also laser resurfacing.
Microdermabrasion is vacuum cleaning of the skin, which removes dead cells and improves the superficial skin.
Dermal pens, such as Rejuvapen, perform needling and vertical holes in the superficial skin. As those tiny areas heal, they produce collagen leading to tightening of the skin. This will help with the wrinkles in the lower eyelid to some degree.
Chemical peels cause tightening by producing new collagen with the help of different chemicals such as TCA or phenol. However, it also leads to a change in color and can cause the mismatch between the lower eyelid skin and the surrounding cheek area.
Laser resurfacing works well if it is fractional and does not cause any peeling of the skin. ResurFx by Lumenis is a good laser that does not lead to any scabbing or peeling.
29 Sep 2013 - 2 months post Dr. Janjua did a fabulous job on my eyelid surgery! He explained the procedure, set my expectations, and followed up. Staff was also excellent! Dr. and his staff spent time with me explaining what I can expect and they lived up to it! Healing was scary, not painful but ugly! I was ok to return to work in a week.
November 2011 Dear Dr. Janjua, I just can't say it enough, Thank you. Thank you for making me feel special and beautiful again. I feel like a brand new person. Love, Lucia
September 17, 2008 Dear Dr. Janjua, I want to thank you for such a wonderful job with my rhinoplasty and upper and lower blepharoplasty. Whenever I used to look in the mirror, my nose was all I saw. I am now thrilled to see there is more to my face than just my nose! Furthermore, while I hadn't originally planned on blepharoplasty at the same time, I am so glad I had that done as well. My eyelids were so swollen and the bags under my eyes as well made me look so tired all of the time. Now, my face feels fresh and I look well-rested and younger. I get many compliments without anyone knowing my little “secret”. I also want to compliment you on your commitment to your patients. You had told me that if I was unsatisfied in any way, you would correct it until I was...
January 23, 2007 Dear Dr Janjua, My wife and I wanted to take a moment to personally thank you for the manner in which you treated our 3 year old daughter Nicole. Her constantly inflamed tonsils caused you to make a professional decision to have them and her adenoids removed. Your bedside manner and personal attention far surpasses what a parent receives from other physicians these days. You are truly an icon to your profession and all the kids you treat are extremely fortunate. Sincerely, Gregory B
Dear Dr Janjua, Words cannot express how happy and thankful I am to you. You did a fantastic job on my ears. I now can wear my hair up after 25 years, long years. Thank you again. Katie B
11 Dec 2013 - 3 months post Due to my impaired vision I had eyelid surgery. I also had a droopy eyelid that was corrected. The procedure was completed exactly as they explained it to me. The Dr. and staff were professional, caring and accessible throughout all stages of my surgery. Today I am seeing better and looking better because of their care and superb skill in performing the surgery. From the first appointment with Dr. Janjua his compassion, caring and professionalism were outstanding. His skill as a surgeon was phenomenal. He always made time for any questions or concerns I expressed.
Blepharoplasty testimonial from a physician May 2011 Dear Dr. J and Staff: Thank you very much for all the care with me. The surgery was a complete success and I feel much better now!! You did a great job. Your team is also the best. With all my regards. Dr.A
August 2008 Dear Dr. Janjua, Thank you so much for fixing my nose. You did a really good job. Now it looks even better than it did before I broke it. I was really nervous about the surgery but you did a great job. It did not hurt at all. It did not even hurt when you took the packing out. Thank you so much. Sincerely, Lily S. (A 13 year old patient)
April 14, 2006 Dear Dr Janjua, Six months ago, when you did the eye tuck on me, I was quite nervous and apprehensive. Remember before the surgery you had to calm me down and assure me that everything will be fine? Well, everything is fine and I am very happy with the outcome. On several occasions friends asked me if I had a facelift. How much more can I ask for? Thank you, thank you, thank you! Best wishes and who knows, I might come back for the next "improvement". Sonia K
Dear Dr Janjua, I would like to thank you again for the treatment and wonderful care you provided me for my upper eyelid surgery. The procedure and recovery were painless and I regained my peripheral vision plus an improved appearance. Yours Truly, Lou R
27 Sep 2013 - 7 days post The entire experience with Dr. Janjua and his staff was wonderful. From the consultation to the removal of stitches, I felt my son was in great hands. A week after the procedure, his stitches were removed and the incision was barely visible. I would highly recommend Dr. Janjua to anyone in need of a cosmetic surgeon.
Dear Dr. Janjua, Forgive my delay in not writing to you sooner. I am so grateful to have met you. Considering the many procedures I endured in New York and Florida, I cannot believe how well everything turned out. The slight scars are fading, and I'm extremely pleased with my appearance. Your professional manner and expertise is to be highly commended. From the very beginning I felt confident and comfortable in your care. My children couldn't believe my calm acceptance of everything you suggested, but once they met and talked with you, they understood why I had such faith in you. You have a friendly and sincere approach which helped me trust and believe in your ability. My trust proved well founded; you are a skilled and talented surgeon. Thank you most sincerely, Florence T (A skin cancer patient)
April 2006 Dear Dr Janjua, I cannot thank you enough for your kindness and great work. My dad re-pierced my ears last week and they look great!! Thanks again! Love, Deborah Y
Mary Ann I
Dear Dr Janjua, There are no words to thank you enough for helping me & certainly for believing I had a problem and you didn’t give up until you found my problem which turned out to be a CSF leak of the right temporal lobe. In a time when the patient has to take control and be very involved in their medical care you give a special meaning to the definition of “Doctor” and bedside manner. You are certainly the best and at the top of your profession. I am certainly thankful everyday that you are my doctor!! Thank you Mary Ann I
6 Jan 2013 I've had Laser hair removal as well as Botox. Dr. Janjua is very professional and kind.. He is conservative and doesn't feel the need to go overboard with Botox so you can maintain a natural look. I've received tons of compliments on my skin. I've also had great results with the hair removal as well. I recommended him to all my friends.
November 2010 Dear Dr. Janjua, How I hated looking in the mirror every morning at this ugly turkey neck. With your gentle T.L.C. you performed a miracle, you turned this old turkey into a young chick, well at least that’s how I feel. How can I ever thank you enough. Fondly Aunt Mimi
August 28, 2008 Dr. Janjua, I would like to say that it was my pleasure having you take care of my surgery. Everything went well during the procedure and the recovery outcome was better than expected. If I had to do it over again I would choose you, Dr. Janjua. I hope that many more have the same experience with you. Thank you again for all that you have done for me. With best regards Elise G. (A skin cancer patient)
LETTER FROM A PHYSICIAN March 30, 2006 Dear TJ, I am glad I was able to find the time to thank you in writing. There is no question that as patients, we expect answers to our problems. What was totally unexpected and most appreciated was the extensive research and several professional opinions you pursued without hesitation. All these to deliver not just a satisfactory solution but a near-perfect approach to a very complicated problem. You have my utmost respect as an individual. The high value you place on delivering care for your patients underlines your work and character ethics. With warmest personal regards, your lifelong friend and colleague. A.D.N To Whom It May Concern, Dr Janjua did a beautiful repair on my split under-eye ER repair. I don't even have a scar showing. He then went on to even out my upper eyelids at a future date. One was lower...
TJ, Many thanks for taking care of my “little” brother. All the stress and strain of who would repair Chris’ injuries and when would it be done – were put to rest when you agreed to help us out. I cannot thank you enough for promptly aiding Chris with your kills. Respectfully & gratefully, Bob
February 3, 2013 6 weeks ago I went to Dr. Janjua for laser hair removal for my chin and mustache. As I age the hair is getting thicker and causing me to be more insecure. I have attempted laser hair removal about 5 other times by different cosmetic and laser doctors only to be disappointed at the result. I have thick stubborn hair and whiskers that I have to pluck every single day until NOW! I had only one session and am so amazed and surprised at the difference. I expected and prepared myself for results after 4 sessions to really notice anything but I am so happy to see the change that has happened already. I have another appointment already scheduled for my legs to also get done. Dr. Janjua never ceases to amaze me.
28 Apr 2013 - 24 days post Dr. Janua is great. I had one treatment for my chin and all the hair is gone! I was amazed I thought I would need 4-5 treatments. I am definately going back for bikini area and under arms soon. I HIGHLY recommend him. His staff is also very friendly and efficient smooth process from start to finish.
September 29, 2010 Dear Dr. Janjua and Susie, Ken and I would like to thank you for your hospitality in having us at your Wine & Cheese Party/Sculptra demo last night. We had a nice evening , and found the demo and lecture to be very interesting. I believe I'm seeing Sculptra in my near future - can't speak for Ken, though Also, I just came out of a "Service Anniversary" celebration at my company and I was one of 30 recipients, celebrating 15 years at my company. When I got back to my table, someone said to me, "15 Years! So...you started here when you were 5?" What a compliment, huh? So between genetics, how I try to take care of myself with diet, exercise, and supplements, and Dr. Janjua...it's all good and must be working for me :o) P.S. to Susie...the alarm that went off at our house...
January 13, 2008 Dear Dr. Janjua, I wanted to tell you how pleased I am with the results of my plastic surgery last month, encompassing, my lower face, eyelids and neck. As I neared one of the "big" birthdays, I noted the sagging face, deep lines and especially my neck. In looking at a recent photo, I had commented that my face looked as if it were melting and how I especially hated how my neck looked. I had been thinking about having surgery for a couple of years. You exuded such confidence and sincerity when I first met you that I was mostly convinced that I wanted to have the work done and have you do it. But I wanted to do my "homework" first, as you had invited me to do. I reviewed your credentials on the web, researched plastic surgery in general, etc. and my primary care doctor praised the work...
12/07/2004 Dear Dr. Janjua, Thank you very much for your skills in putting me together again. I understand this was difficult surgery. I appreciate your interest and care towards me. Even my friends commented on your sincere expression of concern. May you long be spared to continue to be a blessing to other patients and bring them comfort. Sincerely, Jean
Dear Dr Janjua, I’m sending you this card to apologize for having to cancel my chemical peel last November. My husband had a knee replacement surgery and I had to take care of him at home and transport him to therapy 3x a week for several weeks. I would like to see you next year and reschedule the appointment. I like you as a doctor for your competence and attitude. I appreciate the visits you gave me at Frank Anthony. Have a great holiday and a health new year. Sincerely, Faye M
May 12, 2014 Dear Dr. Janjua, Thank you to you and your staff for very positive surgery experience. The skill you bring to facial surgery issues is excellent. That, of course, is extremely important, but I also thank you for your calm, reassuring manner and taking the time to answer my questions and reassure me that all would be well. This is my first surgery experience since the c-section birth of my youngest child 28 years ago! So, needless to say, I was a little nervous about the whole idea of plastic surgery for the basal cell cancer on my lip and neck. I knew it needed to be done but couldn’t help but wish it would all go away. However, both you and Lilly prepared me so well for the procedure that I felt ready on Monday morning. When Morristown Medial Center called to let me know what to...
Highly experienced and intelligent physician who observes closely and helps guide you in making the best decision. He notices subtle things in your appearance, and is genius in determining next steps, with the aim of making you look your best, yet totally natural. Highly recommended. He administered Sculptra and Dysport, which made an enormous difference. No facelift necessary!
Dr. Janjua, I wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you. My name is Cindy and I came to see you several months ago looking for help with my upper eyelids xanthoma. They have healed beautifully and look great. Thanks to you I am no longer self conscious about my eyelids. With gratitude, Cindy
January 10, 2008 Dear Dr Janjua, I can’t tell you how happy and satisfied I am with my upper eyelid surgery! You did a wonderful job, and it was a lot easier than I thought it would be. I wish I had done it a lot sooner, but I was scared. I have complete confidence in you for anything I may consider in the future! Thank you so much! Sue
June 2004: This a.m. I took off the splint (it's too early and I didn't want to wake you up on a Sat a.m.) and WOW! My nose is perfect! it is EXACTLY the result I desired! It is the perfect nose for my facial structure. . . . and the greatest part is that unless someone pays close attention to it no one can tell I had it operated 6 days ago!. . . . . a singular achievement indeed and speaks volumes of your surgical skills. . . . IT'S AS IF YOU READ MY MIND regarding the type of nose I wanted!.........you are a wizard, my friend (I must strain myself before I get too effusive and make myself appear foolish!!!). . . . . . . Words have never been a problem for me but even I'm at a loss for words to thank you. ....
Thank you very much for fixing my face and being really supportive during the last months. My face is getting better everyday. Thank you, Dylan Baxter
The Best experience I have had with a cosmetic surgeon. I found Dr. Janjua after a Juvaderm overfill in my top lip left me grossly distorted and he was the only cosmetic surgeon that would touch me in the Tri State area. Dr. Janjua completely fixed the overfill in one simple office visit and refused to charge me anything. That was 4 years ago and I have continued to trust Dr. Janjua with Botox and fillers to keep my face looking refreshed.
I have been a patient of Dr. J's for over 3 years. I have always been satisfied with the results.
Dear Dr. Janjua, I am so glad that I chose you to be my plastic surgeon! For a long time I wanted to have corrective surgery on my nostrils. I felt that they were too wide and I wanted to have them made a little smaller. I did some research and found out that you did this procedure and it is called an alarplasty. I emailed your office and was contacted the following day. I spoke with Liz, who was very friendly and helpful. I was able to schedule an appointment soon after our conversation. My consult with you was such a nice experience! You set my mind at ease immediately! I then scheduled the procedure soon after the consult. Everything worked out fine. I returned to work 2 days later with just a couple of small tape bandages. I told everyone that it was dermatological procedure! It was no...
Nov 2007 Dear Dr. Janjua, I was very pleased with the operation you performed when I had skin cancer on my nose. I never had a problem. The people I sent to you called me and thanked me for sending them to you. They are very pleased with you. Thank you, Florence V
April 2004: Dear Dr. Janjua and staff: Thank you so much for everything you have done for me. I love my results with my new cheek bones and my nose works better too. It has made a big difference in my life. I feel so much prettier than before and my husband likes it too. Tamara
Dear Dr Janjua, Thank you very much for fixing Leanne’s lip after her injury in January. As you can see, it looks great! She has her beautiful smile back. We were so worried about our decision to have the surgery, but we couldn’t be more happy with the results. She is no longer self conscious about the shape of her lip! Happy Holidays! Sincerely, Dawn D
25 Jan 2013 Dr. Janjua saved my face. I was terribly scared in an alarplasty gone wrong by another surgeon on NYC. My face was uneven, botched and scared so bad I had a hard time leaving my house. When I had an initial visit with Dr J we came up with a game plan that he also talked over with colleagues, I wasn't a typical case. We scheduled the procedure and the office helped me stay comfortable and at ease during the whole time. After the surgery I knew it was going to look good. Keep in mind I have had the doc prior to Dr. Janjua do this on me 5 x, to keep trying to fix and re fix the damage. So I could tell right away it was aligned even and my suchers were placed evenly... 2 weeks after and I am so happy! I thought...
March 2014 Dr. Janjua and your amazing team, I just wanted to drop a note to let you know how much I appreciate all of your caring, loving treatment of me and not a day goes by that I don’t feel love in my heart when I think of you. Thank you again for everything!!! Frank M.
BLEPHAROPLASTY PATIENT 5/17/2010 After years of procrastinating I had Dr. Janjua perform an upper and lower blepharoplasty. No one could figure out what I had done but everyone asked whether I had color contacts on. They never noticed my green eyes before because they were covered by my eyelids. I couldn’t be happier with my more youthful and natural look. Thank you Dr. Janjua for your expertise and thorough follow-up. C.A.
October 31, 2007 Dear Dr. Janjua, I had previously had bad facial surgery performed on my nose by another physician and I was very hesitant to have a face lift performed. I scoped you out for a year before I decided to go through with it. Even though I had been referred to you by a very good source, from past experience I knew that is not often enough. I first came to you after a corrective surgery was done on my nose by the renowned Dr. Gunter and some infection had developed. You took care of that with no problem so I started to see you for other small things. One of the big indicators of your skill and caring for each individual was just through the attention you gave me for Botox injections. You iced my face so I wouldn't bruise (I didn't have to tell you that...
April 2003 Dear Dr. Janjua, Please forgive me for taking so long to write this note. We have been so caught up in our son's wedding on March 22nd, the most beautiful Saturday we've had in a long time. Most of our guests hadn't seen me in a long time. I had a lot of people staring at my face! Most said I looked great, beautiful, younger. Some really tried to get me to tell them what I did. I told most people that I lost a lot of weight, quit the stressful job and changed my hair color- the ones who knew me, well already know what I did. My family thought I looked great. I am still getting used to the change. I want you to know I appreciate all your professionalism, skill, expertise, kindness and encouragement. I haven't gone online to see the pictures, I'm not sure...
Dear Dr Janjua, Tomorrow marks a year that I came to you on and emergency basis. My 7 year old son, Ben, was hit in the left temple by an SUV door. Fortunately for us, my contacts at Somerset Medical Center led me to you. I will always remember your prompt response upon learning of the emergency. You told us to come in immediately. I remember relaxing for the first time that day when I met you. Your courteous, calming, take charge manner helped me in an extremely upsetting day. I can tell you now that when I look at Ben I do not see any tell tale indication of that day. You would have to look very close. Thanks to your handiwork, when Ben looks in the mirror he is not reminded of that terrible day. His physical scars have healed. Emotionally, I know they are still there. One...
January 9,2013 Dr. Janjua is very thorough, he puts you at ease and makes you feel comfortable, he asks you what you are looking to achieve and what bothers you, he reviews your options, he explains the procedure and potential risks, he reviews general aging issues and concerns that you might have, he never ever pressures you into anything, he always treats you as if you're his only patient, and his Staff possesses the same qualities, making it an overall pleasant experience. Dr. J. is very kind and attentive and he is always a pleasure to interact with. Even my husband loves him! He occasionally offers seminars/demonstrations throughout the year on aging and available procedures. He even offers monthly specials and a gracious birthday gift card to use! Any time I need to contact him, I reach out to him via RelayHealth and he personally answers me that same day...
Susan and Joe A.
September 2013 Dear Dr. Janjua and staff, Thank you for all taking such exceptional care of our daughter, Caroline. She was extremely anxious about her surgery. Dr. Janjua was very kind and patient. He held her hand in the recovery room until she was comfortable. We appreciate meeting a physician with such a gentle “bedside manner”. We have also been pleased with the nurses and office staff. All our questions have been addressed in a courteous and helpful manner. With sincere gratitude, Susan and Joe A.
Dear Dr Janjua, I am extremely happy with the results of my rhinoplasty/septoplasty, not only does my nose look great but I can breath so much easier. I've gotten so many compliments and I definitely feel more confident. The whole process went really smoothly especially since I don't deal too well with pain. My nose is so symmetrical and it really makes the whole dynamic of my face softer. I can't thank you enough. Jessie - February 2010
October 29, 2007 Dear Dr. Janjua, Just a few lines to thank you for taking care of me throughout my recent surgery. From the very first consultation with you I was completely confident that this would altogether be a stress free experience, as indeed it turned out to be. The quality of the pre and post surgical care has been exceptional. And I am delighted with the results. With warm regards, Yours sincerely, Colin
March 2002 Dr. Janjua, Hi! Hope your new practice is going well. You are missed @ PMC. I thought you like to know my face since the dermabrasion is great. Met an old friend and she couldn't believe how good my skin looks. Thanks for everything! Lisa G.
Dear Dr Janjua, We highly appreciate the way you take care of our kids Humza and Faizan. It is a blessing to have a sincere, caring and friendly doctor around. You have a special place in our hearts. Thank you for being there for us! With love and regards, Naim, Shamaila, Humza & Faizan
