Amara Med Spa Client Testimonials

“As a Semi Driver, it’s about how I SEE, not how I LOOK.

So, when I came to Dr. Kristin Tarbets office, with a ptosis (drooping eyelid) that obstructed my vision in one eye, it was about vision, not vanity. Or at least, that’s what I thought, until I had the procedure done. Now, when I look in the mirror, I can’t help but smile at the improvement in my appearance.

But, what I see in the mirror is nothing compared to the change in how well I see the world around me. The obstruction to my vision had come about so gradually, that I never realized how much it had robbed me of my focus, my energy, and my ability to enjoy the gift of good eyesight. For years, I couldn’t enjoy television or movies, or other vision-intensive activities such as reading. My eyes and my concentration would drift, and I would doze off in a matter of minutes. When you’re driving a semi, dozing and poor vision are NOT options!

It’s hard to fully describe the change that this surgery has made in my life. Now, I find myself sitting with my wife, watching “chick flicks”, and thinking: “Jeez! I’m actually enjoying this!” Don’t tell my co-workers! They’ll take away my “man” badge! Seriously, improved vision has totally changed my perception of the world as I know it. It’s improved everything I do!

The recovery phase of the procedure was truly a breeze. Over-the-counter pain relievers, easily handled the mild post-op discomfort. Swelling and bruising were very minor. Ice packs easily took care of those. In my case, friends were unable to detect the surgery after the third day! Some never noticed at all. To me, THAT’S the true test of good surgery.

My experience with Dr. Tarbet and her staff has been phenomenal; truly, the best medical experience in my life.

I cannot recommend these folks highly enough! Whatever your reasons for considering cosmetic surgery, you won’t find a more competent, caring group of professionals than these people.

And, when you’re smiling at your new face in the mirror, say “Hi!” for me!”


“Since I was a teenager, I’ve been self conscious about my double chin. As I grew older, my double chin grew too. Every time I looked in the mirror, I saw my great-grandmother’s double chin! For my birthday, I decided to give myself what I’ve always wanted – a profile.

Initially, I was hesitant about having cosmetic surgery. I was concerned about the potential results, the healing time and the expense. Fortunately, I read about Dr. Tarbet, saw some of her amazing work and made an appointment.

My results look completely natural and the healing time was much shorter than I thought it would be. There are even medical payment plans now, so I didn’t have to take out a loan to make my dream come true.

I still can’t believe it’s me when I look in the mirror. I actually have more energy and a brighter outlook and can even wear necklaces and turtle necks again!

I can say without any hesitation that I would do this all over again – not to mention much sooner, if I would have known how great I would look and feel afterwards.”


“Dr. Kristin Tarbet would be an excellent choice for anyone considering facial plastic surgery. After meeting Dr. Tarbet, I was impressed with her knowledge and professionalism. It was immediately apparent to me that she was extraordinarily competent in her specialty.

I consulted three board certified plastic surgeons. Dr. Tarbet’s genuine interest, caring manner and high skill level made her my obvious choice. She is a credit to her profession. I was also impressed with her office staff. The friendly atmosphere makes all of her patients feel welcome and very comfortable during consultations and post-operative care.

As a retired teacher, this was a major monetary decision for me. My expectations were realistic before having the surgery. I trusted Dr. Tarbet and after seeing the results, I know that I made the right choice.

Dr. Tarbet uses her extensive experience to do everything right during surgery. She allows enough time for all of the procedures so she is not rushed.

Dr. Tarbet obtains superior results because she gives careful attention to minute details. It was my lucky day when I found Dr. Tarbet. A person’s appearance makes a first and lasting impression. Thanks to Dr. Tarbet this is now a positive experience for me.”


“If you want the best facial plastic surgeon you can find on the planet… you choose Dr. Kristin Tarbet. If you want the most supportive, kind-hearted facial plastic surgeon on the planet… you would choose the same. My husband and I live in LA and are lucky enough to have some of the world’s top plastic surgeons at our back door. We still choose to fly thousands of miles to see Dr. Tarbet. We both trust her with our lives. Dr. Tarbet is without a doubt DaVinci with a heart. Can you tell we love her?”

“Beautiful office decor. Beautiful office staff inside & out! Excellent service-felt very taken care of and loved! Gay has great attention to detail and is a brilliant P.A. I simply love her for all that she does for my family and I.”


“I have been coming to Janette for two years. I’m more than satisfied with all the procedures she has given me. Until I came to Janette I had no idea of all the different areas that could be treated with injectables. She is very knowledgeable of Botox and fillers. She explains everything she is doing and what it will improve. She also has a very pleasant manner and personality making a patient feel comfortable.”


“My first visit with Gay was many years ago at Red Cliffs Clinic. I instantly felt at ease and in good hands with her as my practitioner. I never felt rushed or that my opinion didn’t count when discussing my health care plans. Even though she has changed locations a couple times, I have always been happy to follow her because she is the absolute best in my mind. She explains everything very clearly and all of her comments, suggestions and directions are printed for reference so there is no need to be afraid of forgetting something. The staff that works with Gay is also fabulous, kind and caring. What a great team they have at Amara Med Spa.”
