"I am a woman in my sixties fit and active, my face was starting to show signs of aging. I wanted to improve my looks by having a face lift. Having a face lift was a personal choice I did not tell anyone or ask anyone their opinion it was for me. I felt I could treat myself to some improvements in my life.

I had been looking for a plastic surgeon for about three years without success, so when Dr. Rick Jaggi moved to Saskatoon I booked an appointment, got in very fast, he was what I had been looking for a head and neck specialist. Dr. Jaggi is professional, polite, and took time to explain procedures, and was very easy to talk to, no pressure to do any surgery.

When I found out that he would do more than one procedure in one session I was very pleased. I had a face lift, upper and lower eyes, and a scar revision done in one session. I had complete confidence and trust in his skills, and I never was nervous or worried about the outcome. The surgery went smooth and fast with no complications, I was out in public within a week. Dr. Jaggi made it clear that I could call or come to his office anytime day or night for follow-ups.

I love the results, not overdone, no one noticed the change. I got the results I was looking for plus more. This is the best thing I have ever done, I am so pleased I found the right Doctor, no regrets would recommend him to anyone.

I would like to thank Dr. Jaggi and the skilled team at Prairie View Center, easy in and out professional place. Thanks Carleen always cheerful, helpful, and there for me."



Dr. Jaggi performed a septorhinoplasty on me and I am so happy with the results. My nose looks outstanding. He was so nice and knowledgeable and he gave me lots of information and time to make sure I was comfortable and prepared. His nurse was kind and very helpful. I would recommend Dr. Jaggi and his team. I had a wonderful experience.
