"My search was over after being referred to Dr. Brackup!!!. My son's wedding was coming up in August, 2016. My eyes were horrible .When I smiled you saw know eye's. I met one surgeon that was scared to remove the lower bags. How would that look? Didn't make sense. With Time running out by chance I when to a new hairdresser, that had her eyes done and look beautiful. Even though Dr. had a busy schedule,he made it a point to fit me in for June 28th. I was assured my eye's would look beautiful by August 20th. Dr. Brackup was right. I had Upper and lower procedures done. Dr. sculpted my eyes to compliment my high cheek bones. They are beautiful. At 60 years old I look twenty years younger!! Dr. Brackup and his entire staff were kind and honestly the best experience I ever had. He is gifted with hands of gold. He only works from the neck up and is a oculoplastic surgeon. My confident's is through the roof. I walk with my head high for the first time in a very long time. Thank you, Dr. Brackup for setting this butterfly free!! Before pictures click on Rosemarie P. Thanks"- R.P. / Yelp / Apr 06, 2017

"I am in love with Doctor Brackup and entire staff. I own Vision center and many times when patient needed blepharoplasty or eyeLid surgery we would refer to Doctor Brackup. End every one we're very happy with results. So one day I was looking at my pictures and realized that I don't look like myself anymore because of amount off fillers I got . When I spoke with doctor I knew I made a right decision. He created plan to dissolve all my fillers and made appointment for mini facelift and lowered Eyelied surgery. And the result is amazing. I was back at work in 3 days no one even noticed anything different. I look like myself but 15 years younger. Doctor Brackup is the miracle maker."- G.K. / Yelp / Feb 05, 2020
"A face lift is costly surgery, but Dr. Brackup is an expert and an artist, and he was worth every penny spent for his October 2019 work. He and his assistant Stacy prepared me well for the pain and slow recovery to come--though neither was as bad as they could have been. I followed up the surgery about six weeks later with injections to address forehead lines, crow's feet and some other areas not touched by the surgery. Recently, one work colleague--unaware of the surgery--stood at my desk for several minutes raving over how healthy, younger and happy I look. Another colleague stopped me on a staircase to praise my rejuvenated appearance. More important, I feel better. Moving forward in my sixties, I know I have taken what steps I could to reduce the effects of aging on my face, and bring my appearance more in line with the physically fit and trim person I long have been. There is the ongoing cost of injections, alas. But unquestionably, I feel quite fortunate to have met Dr. Brackup!"- A.S. / Yelp / Jan 29, 2020
Lip and facial injections can provide you with a soft, look natural with spectacular results. Once you have the one-on-one consultation, your first Volbella injection session will take about 15 – 30 minutes in our office. We will cleanse the areas to be injected. If you are worried about pain, we can put a topical numbing gel on the area before the injection. You will feel a minor amount of pain, but keep in mind that the medication is blended with lidocaine as well.
What to Expect
You can expect some redness and swelling in the area after the injections. Once you leave our office please limit heavy exercise, protect your face from sun exposure, and abstain from drinking alcohol for at least 24 hours. If you wish to have a chemical peel or a facial laser treatment, please tell the person performing these rejuvenation treatments that you have had Volbella injections.
