Dr. Daines Patient Testimonials

  • Dr. Daines is amazing! He is double board certified and specializes only surgeries of the face. This is critical. I had a very complicated revision operation on my nose. Had a ton of scar tissue from a prior surgery and could not breathe well. Dr. Daines masterfully reshaped everything! I know it was a long, difficult procedure but he was meticulous and intensely focused on the outcome he wanted. And it paid off! He has enough energy for three surgeons combined and he needed it for my procedure! No on else could have done what he did. I am truly grateful for this highly skilled and very caring surgeon!

  • I love Dr. Daines!! I came to him in the summer wanting a rhinoplasty and a turbinate surgery. He knew exactly what I wanted my nose to look like without my having to tell him. Surgery day came and he took his time and made my nose PERFECT! I absolute love my nose now and feel so much better about it and I can breathe for the first time in close to 20 years. He really cares about his patients. He and his staff are amazing!!

  • Phenomenal Doctor! Very personable and knowledgeable! Takes his time to explain everything to your satisfaction. Provides his personal cell phone number for questions, problems, etc……Detail oriented and very thorough!

  • Five star Doctor!! I’ve been to a handful of facial plastic surgeons which is a funny thing to admit, but Dr. Daines is truly the best of the best. He has an amazing bedside manner but most importantly he’s a phenomenal surgeon. For the first time, I actually felt like he gave me what I asked for and more. Run to his office to make an appointment!!!

  • Your skillful attention to my own prominent skin cancer is much appreciated. So too, is the thoughtful and very professional conduct offered by your surgical team and office staff… I can say that at every step along the way I was confident I had made the right choice coming under your care. I was particularly impressed by your taking the time to schedule an office visit on a Saturday to monitor my progress; even more so by your sincere invitation to call you at any time should a concern arise during the critical post-operative period. -Dan M.

  • We are so glad to have found Dr. Daines. He performed Otoplasty on my daughter, and I could not be more pleased with the results. When we went in for our consult, he was so kind and compassionate. I left with the best first impression possible. On the day of the surgery, Dr. Daines put all of our fears at ease and took his time to do an impeccable job. His communication is beyond what I expected to get from a surgeon. Dr. Daines is humble, gracious and kind hearted. He also has a wonderful sense of humor and a sweet spirit. I recommend Dr. Daines to anyone who is contemplating plastic surgery. The office staff was also very friendly and met all of our needs. -Jeanette A.

He was kind and compassionate to me and my family throughout this rough experience. Dr. Daines’ talent and patience through the long and difficult surgery returned me to my former self.

  • He’s double board certified which is a huge plus for me and he does all the injections himself not a PA or a nurse in the office. I will never let another doctor touch my face. I have to drive over an hour each direction but since I want perfection it is well worth it! Now when I go to the makeup counters I get all kinds of compliments about how young I look and these are from much younger women. Thank you Dr. Daines. — Susan C.

  • Dr. Daines is an amazing surgeon and person. I have recommended him to several friends and I would go back to him if I happen to break my face again or needed any other procedure. I would not even consider another surgeon. He was very thorough with my follow up appointments.

  • “Thanks for healing me. I will always be grateful. My recovery has been a piece of cake. I feel like a new person!” – Jody M.

  • “Facial surgery is intimidating for any patient as ego and vanity kick-in regardless of age or gender. Your skillful attention to my own prominent skin cancer is much appreciated. So too, is the thoughtful and very professional conduct offered by your surgical team and office staff. While I am a long way from being healed, I can say that at every step along the way I was confident I had made the right choice coming under your care.

    I was particularly impressed by your taking the time to schedule an office visit on a Saturday to monitor my progress; even more so by your sincere invitation to call you at any time should a concern arise during the critical post-operative period.

    Said simply: Your team of assistants, nurses, collaborating physicians and others illustrate the difference between top-tier patient care and the pretense of such services.

    Thanks for taking care of me and congratulations on having built a model practice. Please share my appreciation with your team and colleagues.” – Daniel M.

  • I went into Dr. Daines’ office for an initial consultation and he knew exactly what I was looking for after a few short minutes. He took several pictures and was very communicative about how he would perform my chin augmentation that I had wanted for several years. He used good judgement during the operation and I couldn’t be happier with the result!

  • Dr. Steven Daines performed an eyebrow lift on me.  At 69 years of age, my eyes appeared small and my eyelids sagged.  Now my eyes are vibrant, I can see better and have received many compliments from friends I haven’t seen in a long time. The look is very natural; I am very pleased with the results of Dr. Daines surgery! – Cheryl N.

  • Dr. Steven Daines and Nurses: Many thanks for your outstanding service. You guys are the best. – John

  • Dr. Daines was so professional. He very calmly handled my discomfort and quickly and efficiently took care of the problem and sent me on my way. He made a very difficult day so much better, and I am grateful that I have had such great results. Thanks, Dr. Daines! – Pat

  • I originally went to Dr. Daines for Botox. I was really nervous to switch doctors, but I couldn’t be more pleased. It’s the first time that I have felt like the Dr actually listened to me. Dr Daines did an amazing job. No regrets. Wish I would have met him years ago. His staff is professional, prices are reasonable and he is very well trained. – Kay W.

  • Dr. Daines was delicate and has a very calm and soothing personality. No bruising, and best of all my teenager said I look 5 years younger after my “girls vacation.” I worked in the fashion industry for 10 years and can spot an overdone face in a second. I wanted to look hot without everyone seeing I clearly had work done. Accomplished! – Kris J.

  • I had a scar on the very tip of my nose after a reckless plastic surgeon removed a cyst on my nasal tip. Dr Daines was attentive to all my concerns and truly cared for what I wanted. The entire staff at this facility are so professional. He removed a lot of tissue damage left from my scar and gave me his all. Highly recommended and with utmost love and respect. – Nina

  • I had a wonderful experience with Dr Daines. His clinic was clean and his staff were wonderful. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family. Thank you Dr. Daines! – Jen S.

  • After being disappointed with Botox and fillers in the past, I traveled to Newport from Salt Lake City, Utah to see if Dr. Daines could help me get the results I wasn’t able to achieve with other Dr’s. He was very honest about the results I should expect from different products and what would be best for my facial features. I am a tiny person and have lost a lot of the fullness in my face. He injected fillers in my cheeks and in the deep lines around my mouth. He also injected filler in my lips and did Botox in my forehead, between my brows and around my eyes. I have been doing Botox for a while and it always pulled my brows too high. Dr. Daines made them look so natural and soft… Less angular and “surprised” looking. I have more softness to the angles in my face due to the filler and people often comment that my face looks less “drawn”. I love it!! The LIPS!! I have had my lips done before by another Dr and was NOT happy with them. They looked sooo fake. It was embarrassing. I was really nervous to have them worked on again. Dr. Daines has the greatest bedside manner. He helped me feel relaxed, comfortable, confident, and informed. My lips were perfect! They looked feminine and natural! It was definitely worth the trip and I plan on taking another one! My only regret is not living closer!! – Jenn J.

  • Dr. Daines performed a chin implant on me 2 weeks ago and I love it! After 4 days, most of the swelling went away. I get so many compliments on how it looks. Before, I didn’t have much of a chin and I hated my jowls. The implant extends along the jaw line, so most of the jowling is now gone. The implant has also pushed up my lower lip, which makes my lips look fuller and has given my cheeks a fuller look too. He treats all his patients the same way he treats me, with compassion, kindness, respect and he has a great sense of humor. I feel so lucky to work with him and to also, be his patient. – Renee K.

  • Recently I went to Dr.Daines for Botox. I had my upper face treated so that means forehead and around my eyes and the results have been stunning!. I cannot believe the change. My forehead is smoother and my eyes are open and bright. Being my first time Dr.Daines took the time to answer my questions about getting Botox and the benefits of using Botox for delaying the effects of aging. Dr. Daines also had me schedule a follow up so that he could check my results and see that I was satisfied with my results. I highly recommend Dr. Daines to anyone looking to try Botox. – Jessica L

  • Dr. Daines did a fantastic job with my surgery as well as the follow up appointments. He is an excellent doctor and takes very good care of his patients. I highly recommend him. – Ramy R.

  • I had a surgery on my nose in 2009 for breathing problems, but ended up not fully repairing the problem. Dr. Daines successfully made me able to breathe through my nose again. Every visit I had with him, he was very easy to talk to and answered all my questions before I even had to ask. The operation itself was basically painless and all his staff was very accommodating. I can finally breathe! – Gavin B.

  • I have always been very apprehensive about making any changes to my face so I was really nervous. I found Dr. Daines and the staff to be extremely friendly and professional. He was thorough in explaining the procedure step by step and made sure that I was comfortable the entire time. My lips are absolutely perfect- slightly enhanced but not overfilled. I couldn’t be happier!!! – Amanda Z.

  • Dr. Daines is one of the best if not the best, located in Newport Beach where all the beautiful people go for that “restful” look we all secretly want, but rarely admit to. Anyone who says they want to “grow old gracefully” is full of excrement, but let me change that right now. The office staff is very friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable; and excitement of seeing the “new and improved” when its done. – Bijou K.

  • I can’t say enough about how grateful we are for Dr. Daines. He helped when my daughter needed facial stitches from a high school basketball game accident. He even met with us on Christmas Eve to remove the stitches. His kind demeanor is very calming. His office staff is amazing and very kind. I plan on referring him to all my friends for any facial plastic surgeon needs. – Stacey O.

  • When I arrived at his office I was pleasantly surprised by the most friendly staff!!! They had such a great sense of humor and very professional I felt very connected and safe with Dr Daines he is skilled proficient and very economical! He is an expert at customer service I have numerous friends that have made the obvious right choice to switch to this dr. If I keep raving about him I might make others envious so I’ll stop – Colleen V.

  • I came to Dr. Daines after an accident to reduce a nasal fracture. Let’s just say it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Before the surgery, my nose was crooked. Now, you cannot even tell I ever had a broken nose. AMAZING! From the moment you step into his office, you are welcomed and comforted by Dr. Daines and his staff. Thank you Dr. Daines! – Safa K.

  • I had a cyst under my skin on my face, and I was worried about keloid scarring after getting it removed. I chose Dr. Daines to do the procedure and no keloid scarring! The 3 surgeons I consulted did not provide the same amount of knowledge as Dr. Daines. He has a great follow-up procedure and makes sure that his patients are happy long after the surgery is completed. I would definitely go back! – Arthur Y.

  • Dr.Daines is an awesome facial cosmetic plastic surgeon. He is a perfectionist and is very accommodating. He is very approachable and takes his time with you during office visit. This is the best place to go for fillers, Botox, face lifts, scar revision, septoplasty, derm abrasion, fractional laser treatment, and other cosmetic facial procedures. I recommend my friends and family to Dr.Daines for their future cosmetic needs. – Jack Y.

  • My experience with Dr. Daines started when I caught a line drive with my face. A CAT scan revealed that I had a hole in the bottom of my eye socket. They referred me to Dr. Daines and I am so happy they did. I was immediately at ease with him. He explained that the choice of having surgery with me, everything ended up going smoothly. I would not even consider another surgeon. – Reva F.

  • I cannot express more how pleased I am with the results of my eye peels. I had my first one last year and had very nice results. The wrinkles, crinkles, around the eyes look softer and tighter. I just had my second eye peel and am shocked how much more youthful the skin around my eyes appear since my first eye peel. I will definely be back for another before my daughter’s wedding. I am so pleased! – Diane A.

  • Dr Daines did a wonderful job with my eye surgery. I look 10 years younger! Dr D always takes the time to ask what I want, explains what he recommends, and what to expect. Price-wise, I feel what I got was worth more than what I paid – very reasonable for the great job he did. I highly recommend Dr Daines for any cosmetic procedure – you will not be disappointed! – Suzanne F.

  • Dr. Daines. What can I say? Dr. Daines really listened to what I had to say and took the time to give suggestions without adding pressure to me. He has great bedside manner, but what impressed me the most was how closely he followed my progress. I feel like I’m his only patient with the amount of attention I receive and I can tell he genuinely and ACTUALLY cares for his patients. I definitely had a great experience! – Isaac C.

  • From the friendly front desk staff to the professional medical assistants to the doctor himself, everything was perfect! The procedure was completely painless and so fast. He was very informative and definitely has a great sense of humor. Will definitely be recommending this doctor to my family and friends and would not hesitate to visit again. Thanks so much Dr. Daines!!! – Erin P.

  • I was in town visiting from NC. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Dr Daines was great and very personable. I was a Botox virgin and he made me feel completely at ease about the procedure. My forehead is smooth as glass now and my NC friends are very jealous. I’d definitely recommend him and will definitely go back next time I’m in California.

  • Dr. Daines was so professional. He very calmly handled my discomfort and quickly and efficiently took care of the problem and sent me on my way. He made a very difficult day so much better, and I am grateful that I have had such great results. Thanks, Dr. Daines!
