Dear Dr. Donath and Staff,
It has been about 8 weeks since my surgery. While there are still signs of healing and a little tweaking I hope to talk about at my December appointment- I am very pleased. It looks nicer all the time. I am thrilled that it looks so Natural as that was a big concern. I realize this is your job-but for those like myself I want to send my heart felt Thanks To You and Your kind staff- Everyone was so completely wonderful, encouraging and concerned- Love you all! And I do feel so much better about myself. Also thank you so much for the beautiful flowers- they lasted nearly 2 weeks and made me smile each day! This was a very difficult decision for me- money being a huge factor for a single working older person with no retirement! But am still happy I went ahead with it and Grateful for the excellent result. I will always recommend the staff and you to anyone I can. I am your biggest cheerleader! Your work is so rewarding-To see the happiness to those like me. Thank you all again-Looking forward to seeing you in December!
From a very grateful patient.
The first visit with Dr. Donath and his staff was a very caring experience. It continued through the procedure and after. I feel if I had questions and needed to see him even months later, he would still be very caring about my procedure. I feel great about myself now. He was recommended to me and I would recommend him to my friends.
Quicklift, Eyelid Lift, Liposuction of face and neck, Fat transfer
August 2, 2013
Batavia, OHLet me start with Liposuction of my face and neck. My jowls were sagging and my neck was loose and just hanging. After my procedure my-jowls-are tight and my neck is taught and youthful. With the Quicklift my face is smooth and no more wrinkles. The eyelid lift is great, it’s subtle and my eye shadow can actually be seen. But I have to say my favorite procedure is the fat transfer to my cheeks. It gives me an even more youthful look and I actually know where to put my blush on my face. I must say with all the procedures I got I did not have much pain at all. The experience was so worth it and I am very happy to look much more youthful and have got many compliments. Go for it- what a great experience. Great staff and very talented doctor. Thank you all.

Very pleased with results. The most common remark after surgery is “I’m not sure what you’re doing but keep it up; you look great”.
Doctor and all staff very professional and compassionate.

Dear Dr. Donath,
Many thanks for your expertise and caring. I consider myself blessed to have found you and your staff. I can't imagine the amount of study and work you have done (at such a tender age!) to get you where you are.

West Harrison, OH
Dr. Donath really goes the extra mile. He listens and hears what you have to say and fully informs without being “pushy”. He takes extra time to perfect everything, wouldn’t ask for a better doctor. All the staff is very attentive and welcoming, for me, it was obvious Dr. Donath was the Right doctor. He’s very informative. I couldn’t be happier and he’s truly changed my life! Thank you!!!
Lower Lid Blepharoplasty and Fat Transfer
June 07, 2013
Dr. Donath and his staff went above and beyond to provide the best care and to answer all of my questions. There was never any pressure and I never felt rushed. For me, the pain was minimal and it did take the full two weeks for the swelling and bruising to subside-just as Dr. Donath had said. I am extremely happy with the results- I only wish I had done it a couple of years ago-for the first time I feel ok not wearing makeup first thing in the morning! Thank you Dr. Donath!
Quicklift, Submental Neck Lift, Fat transfer
February 06, 2013
Your facility is lovely. My experience from the beginning to end, was wonderful! I felt that I got great care during my procedure. The staff was warm/friendly/professional- would recommend to all my friends.
Thanks so much, again.
Filler to Nose
October 16, 2012
Fort Mitchell, KY
Everyone at Dr. Donath's office is very nice and professional. Dr. Donath did an excellent job. My nose looks so much better and the filler looks so natural. I am so happy I chose this procedure and so happy I had chosen Dr. Donath to do it.
Thank you so much!

St. Leon, IN
Dr. Donath has excellent bedside manner! He was respectful to his staff during the entire procedure. He will answer any questions or concerns that you have. The flowers delivered to my home the day after surgery was a great surprise! I am very happy with the results!
July 20, 2012
I feel like I scored a “10” with Dr. Donath! A caring and thorough staff covered everything from pre-op to post-op. My surgery was in April and all my follow-ups I felt he was really looking at my results. This doctor and staff really “get it.” I would highly recommend them to any potential patient.
Quicklift, Liposuction of the Neck, and Botox around the eyes
I went online to find a doctor in Cincinnati. I could have had my work done in Anchorage, Alaska but I was going to be in Cincinnati so I decided to have it done there. After reviewing quite a few doctors, I picked Dr. Donath. When I met him and his staff I felt very comfortable. My results were beyond my expectations. Thank you again Dr. Donath and staff.
Very pleased with my procedure and Dr. Donath and staff. Have wanted to have this procedure done for years, don't know why I waited so long. I have recommended Dr. Donath to others, and will continue to do so.
Under Eye fillers, Botox for Crow's Feet
June 18, 2012
Dear Dr. Donath and staff:
I just wanted to thank you for the amazing job you did on my under eye fillers and Botox for my crow's feet. It took me a while of researching and determining if this was the right procedure for me. I wish I would not have waited so long! It is amazing how awesome my eyes look now. I don't look tired anymore!! The procedure was virtually painless and your expertise was evident during the entire process. I can't imagine going to any other plastic surgeon! You and your team are so amazing and friendly. Every single one of my questions was answered prior to the procedure and you all made me feel so comfortable. Most importantly, you all were so patient with me. I cannot thank you and your team enough! I have more confidence and I have you to thank. I think everyone who is considering any type of cosmetic procedure needs to know about the amazing work you do!!
March 7, 2012
I don't know why I waited so long to have this procedure - I'm very happy with the results! I'm able to wear eyeshadow again and enjoy it! I get compliments from my friends and my eyes look better everyday! There's no pain with it - just mild discomfort. Dr. Donath is a perfectionist and I trust him completely!
Quicklift and Liposuction of Neck
I'm very pleased with my appearance. My neck and face look more like I used to look. Although I've had Bell's palsy that took its toll on me, I feel much better about my appearance. It gives me more confidence about myself. Thank you Dr. Donath and your friendly staff. You have been Great to me!!!
Dr. Donath and all of his staff were wonderful and made me feel very comfortable with the process. I'm very pleased with the results of my surgery and my only regret is not coming to Dr. Donath for the initial procedure. I'm grateful Dr. Donath was able to correct the mistake made by my first surgeon.
Quicklift, Necklift, and Liposuction
After visiting several Doctors, Dr. Donath made me feel very comfortable. Your staff was great; “Top Notch.”
Results were outstanding and beyond my expectations. Dr. Donath is a compassionate, caring surgeon.
Quicklift, Necklift, and Liposuction
I wanted to look younger since I felt like I was 30, and the procedure helped me reverse 10 years! Now I'm back to 50 something. It's like a dream come true. My gobbley neck is gone, and I no longer do I dread having photos. Dr. Donath did a great job!!! Wish I would have done it sooner.
Quicklift in July 2011
I am very pleased with both my new neck and jaw line. Doctor Donath and his staff are both kind and skilled. They made me feel right about having the surgery. The surgery itself was not stressful. I did not need to fill the prescriptions for the pain or the nausea.
The wonderful laser treatment 5 days after surgery took away all the signs of bruising. My acquaintances are telling me how "rested" I look and others ask if I lost weight.
Finally, deciding to have Botox injections in the eye area, forehead and upper lip really added to a more youthful appearance.
Thank you, Dr. Donath!
I just wanted to express my gratitude and let you know how much you have changed my life! After years wanting my nose done followed by years of contemplation and apprehension (and researching plenty of plastic surgeons) I was finally ready after seeing your rhinoplasty portfolio. I was very particular in what I was hoping for and would settle for nothing but the best. It is my face - after all!
Sure enough, almost a year after my surgery, my results are phenomenal and my confidence level has gone through the roof. I think the highest compliment came from an unsuspecting acquaintance in New York City. He could not believe that I had my nose done (something I am happily open about) and actually asked for your name and number to give it to his girlfriend who has been dying to get hers done! In what I like to think of as The City of Nose Jobs, mine was thought of as exceptional. What a great feeling. I was even comfortable being a last minute extra in a commercial where I would only be shown from my profile. I can assure you that 1 year ago that would've been one of my worst nightmares.
I couldn't be happier and have absolutely no regrets about entrusting you with my surgery - the best decision I have ever made. Thank you again for ridding me of any and all insecurities I may have had and for replacing them with the utmost pride and confidence I could've ever hoped for.
Re: Bilateral Blepharoplasty
I am happily surprised at how my field of vision has improved. I can see much more of the world around me. My night vision has improved significantly especially while driving. My peripheral vision is also greatly improved. I have to remember to wear sunglasses more often, as there is a lot more light coming into my eyes. My family, friends, and co-workers look at me and notice a difference, but they can't tell exactly what is different. I feel this procedure has not changed my appearance, it enhances it. People say I look like I did 10 or 15 years ago.
Thank you Dr. D for "opening my eyes."
With a history of being unsatisfied with a previous rhinoplasty. I was looking for a plastic surgeon I could trust to be professional, technically skilled, and compassionate to my situation. I found that Dr. Donath and the staff of Cincinnati Facial Plastic Surgery. My post-surgical recovery went so well and the results are wonderful! If you want to feel confident your Revision Rhinoplasty will be a success then Dr. Donath should be your surgeon! I’m grateful I found him and so happy with my results! Thank you Dr. Donath!
RE: Quicklift, Fat Transfer, Neck Subtuck, Liposuction
I love my new face. My only regret is that I waited so long! It’s a big decision to change your facial appearance. It all boils down to what you’re willing to do about the way you look. You have to weigh the difference between the fear of plastic surgery, versus the depression of looking old. For me, I go so I hated to look in the mirror. There are no creams or lotions that can hide the sagging and signs of aging. I felt like a young person trapped inside an old woman’s face.
Dr. Donath immediately made me feel at ease. I felt he understood exactly what I wanted. His sense of caring was genuine and personal. I sensed he was sure of himself and what he could do for me. His office staff was always warm and friendly and never too busy for me. I felt very comfortable with him and I am so thankful for what he has done for me. It is as if he turned back the clock for me. He has virtually given me a second chance. The level of confidence I now have has given me a whole new outlook on life. A more youthful appearance has affected my mental attitude. It has only been a few months and i can hardly believe the difference. The loose skin is gone!!! Furthermore, my face doesn't have that "pulled tight" look which I have noticed on other women who have had face lifts from other doctors. I see pictures of myself before and I shake my head. Out with the old indeed!
Thank you Dr. Donath!
Re: Quiklift, Fat Transfer, Rhinoplasty
I’m a 65 year old man and I had great results! Dr. Donath is clearly talented, and between Dr. Donath and his staff, I couldn’t have been in a better place.
My procedures went smoothly and my results were perfect. My Rhinoplasty, instead of drawing attention to itself, made my nose fit my face perfectly. I worried about facelift scars, but the manner in which Dr. Donath hid my Quicklift incisions was truly remarkable.
I’ve only experienced on side effect as a result of my surgery and that’s been having to fight off the younger woman – HA!
Dear Dr. Donath,
I just wanted to write to thank you for everything. It has been one year since my surgery and I continue to be so pleased with my results. I spent years unhappy with the size and shape of my nose, trying to convince myself that I should just "live" with it even though it made me very unhappy. I got used to it, but even after it no longer consciously bothered me, I would notice that upon meeting new people or taking photographs I would make a big effort to keep my profile out of view by looking at them head on, because inwardly I really hated my profile because of my nose. I came to a place where I felt I was an attractive person, but even though I was happy with myself, my nose took away from the rest of my face rather than complementing it. I finally got the nerve to see a couple of cosmetic surgeons for consultations, but after leaving each consult I would feel overwhelmed and pressured, and scared to go through with it.
When I finally stumbled onto your services, I was impressed with the confidence you had and the dedication you seemed to put into your training and skills. After speaking with you for the first time you immediately made me feel at ease, and not pressured in any way, while at the same time letting me ask whatever questions I wanted without feeling like you were getting "annoyed" with my million and a half concerns like some other doctors had made me feel. You answered everything knowledgeably and professionally, and you seemed like you truly cared about me as a patient and as a person, which is what finally made me decide to go through with the rhinoplasty in the end with you as my surgeon.
Since my surgery I have noticed a whole new confidence that I never had before! I was always a confidant person on the outside, but there was that little nagging bit that wouldn't go away and I'd feel disappointed when I'd catch a view of the side profile of my nose. Now, I'm not worried about letting a date see me from the side, I revel in it, because I now LOVE my profile. My nose looks great, and it's amazing how just changing the size and shape of my nose helped to make my eyes stand out more, balanced out my lips and made my chin more prominent, whereas before it had seemed slightly receding. All these other features were overpowered by my nose before, but not anymore. Not only does my nose now look fantastic, you took into account exactly how I wanted it to be and made it so natural looking that friends I had known for over a decade didn't realize what I had done at first. (And as a huge bonus, I can now breathe far easier since you straightened out my deviated septum!) My friends would all ask me if I had changed something about myself, because they thought I looked fantastic, they just couldn't put their finger on what it was. When I told them I got a "nose job", they all told me how amazing it looked, and how natural! People that had previously told me they thought plastic surgery was for insecure people were now asking me for the name and number of my surgeon (you!) because it didn't look like I had had anything "done"-- it looked fantastic, beautiful, natural, and brought out the overall harmony of my face in such a subtle, yet significant, way. I am so happy with it that I tell everyone I know that I got a rhinoplasty done because I know they'd be so impressed with the before-and-after! I cannot thank you enough for everything, it is truly a gift that will be making me happy for the rest of my life! Thanks again!

Hi Dr. Donath!
I just wanted to thank you for your fine surgical work performed on me on Sept.17th.The entire Quick Lift and results have been more than satisfactory, and I have received numerous compliments on my new face. The most important opinion is of course my own and my husband ' s and we are both very pleased.
Prior to committing to surgery I researched and visited several local plastic surgeons and was very disappointed with the manner in which their personnel handled prospective surgery candidates. My experience was much the same at each practice and included a very brief face to face meeting with a staff member (not an R. N. and never the surgeon), being asked what my interests were, and receiving brochures .
After my visit there were no follow-up phone calls or emails. Conversely, at my initial visit to your office I was given a very comprehensive description of the Quick Lift by Ellen Fox, who took her time and answered all of my questions. It was Ellen who allayed any fears I may have had about the surgery and results. She explained every detail from pre-surgery instructions to post-surgery care and final expectations. If I had not been able to see you personally my decision to have the surgery was made because of Ellen, who also was very helpful with my pre-surgery phone questions. I of course was very glad to talk with you personally about the surgery and expectations at that first visit and you gave me added assurance about my decision to schedule the procedure. I am very grateful to both you and Ellen. I also reiterate my gratitude for the lovely flowers I received the day after surgery.
They were a lovely surprise that cheered me up. I believe the most compelling testimonial from a patient would be their response to t h e question, "knowing the experience would you do this again," and my answer is definitely " yes ." And I will definitely send my friends and acquaintances who seek facial enhancements to you. Thanks again for a very pleasant experience and excellent results. (I'm sure I'll be back soon to get my puffy eyes fixed.)
The doctor and entire staff at Cincinnati Facial Plastic Surgery were very considerate and caring during and after the procedure and the follow-ups. Dr. Donath called me on the night after surgery, just to make sure I was doing alright. I recommend them highly to anyone interested in facial plastic surgery.
The procedure was very easy, more than what I expected. There was no pain or discomfort for me after the procedure. The whole staff was great before, during and afterwards. I would recommend this doctor to anyone considering this procedure. I was very pleased with the outcome.
I forgot to thank you for the beautiful flowers you sent me! They are so cheery in their cure little smiley-face vase! And I want to thank you for your skillful work in removing awnings from my eyes. Even through the bruising I can see how good my eyes will be. I’m thrilled!
I have never had a doctor with such a fantastic bedside manner. He never made me feel rushed or like I was “just another patient.” All of my concerns were fully addressed and the pre-care and concern- fantastic! The results- I would need to write a book- I am so excited and thrilled with the actual procedure, the results- fantastic. I feel like an almost teenager again. It’s so truly amazing how looking younger and being satisfied with what I see in the mirror actually mimics itself to the inside. I have a renewed, younger spirit and feel like dancing and singing all the time- I just feel happier- Looking younger on the exterior doesn’t change who you are but it definitely makes you really appreciate who you are more as a total package!!!
The concern and follow up care again has been a wonderful experience and I say again – how refreshing to have a fantastic doctor Who really cares, listens and gives you the results he promises- I’d do it over again in a heart beat!
Dr. Donath- You’re the ONE!!!
Dear Dr. Donath & Staff,
Thanks so much for everything! I have appreciated your kindnesses, your openness to questions, your professionalism and making me feel safe in your care.
Dear Dr. Donath,
I would just like to express my sincere gratitude for your excellent work, patience and understanding. You never made me feel rushed or uncomfortable. I genuinely felt you were as concerned with my face and neck, etc. as I was.
Words cannot express the new lease on life I know you have given to me. I even feel younger! Thank you again for your attention to detail and for caring. You are the best!
From the moment that I met Dr. Donath and the staff at Cincinnati Facial Plastic Surgery, I knew that I was in good hands. My family and I were treated with upmost respect and politeness. Pre and post operative procedures were carefully and accurately explained to me. Dr. Donath and his staff were always easy to access if I had any questions or concerns. I do not regret any part of my surgery descision. I couldn’t be happier with the end result. I have already recommended The Cincinnati Facial Plastic Surgery group to my friends and family.
Dear Dr. Donath,
I wanted you to know how extremely ecstatic I am about the incredible job you were able to perform on the cosmetic-reconstructive rhinoplasty surgery.
I consulted with eight other board certified plastic surgeons each time leaving their office with a feeling of uneasiness and very unsatisfied.
After my consultation with you and your staff I knew you were the only doctor I felt completely and 100% satisfied with being able to achieve the results I was looking for.
You and your staff went above and beyond the call of duty, making me feel important, handling all the necessary arrangements and making me feel completely as ease.
I was not just a patient, I felt like family!
The end result was even more amazing than I could have anticipated! You have done an amazing job and I would definitely recommend you to anyone considering plastic surgery.
If I could give any of your future patients a piece of advice it would be “Don’t waste your time considering any other Doctor, Dr. Donath is the only way to go!
Again I can’t even express how unbelievably happy you’ve made me with the end results. Congratulations on a job very well done!
Very Satisfied with all your services. Dr. Donath has a great personality. Enjoy my visits!
I received Radiesse filler in order to soften the creases and lines on my face. I was very pleased with the results and feel as if 10 years was lifted off my age. The entire staff were wonderful and supportive. The procedure is painless and the results are well worth the price.
Dear Dr. Donath,
Thank you so much for your time and generosity. I was impressed with the knowledge and patience. You’ll be hearing from me for my next Botox injection.
Thank you so much for doing such a great job on my nose. I can breathe so much better now. Hope you have a great holiday!
