Patient Testimonials

Testimonial for Procedure: Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

“With your skill as a surgeon and your hands guided by God, you were able to give me back the body I lost so long ago. Although I know that we are not our bodies, we are spirit, but our bodies reflect who we are; and I was not the one I saw in the mirror. Thank you for making my body reflect who I feel I am inside.” LM

Testimonial for Procedure: Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

“The TUMMY TUCK is the best. I was very proud to walk around on the beach with the flattest washboard abs. The lipo worked wonders on my hips and thighs. For the first time in my life I feel so comfortable in my clothes and with the way my body looks. Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you. I would like everyone to know how talented you are and the wonderful bed-side manner I received in your care.” GM

Testimonial for Procedure: Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

“Thank you just does not seem to say enough. You are wonderful – you could not have chosen a better profession for yourself. You were not kidding when you said I would have a whole new life ahead, my life has changed. I am living it again instead of living it from the sidelines. I just want to have more procedures done so I can come spend more time with you all.” AC

Testimonial for Procedure: Breast Reduction

“Thank you so much for everything. Having a breast reduction was the best thing I’ve ever done. I couldn’t have asked for a better person to do it. You have a wonderful way of making a patient feel totally comfortable and I can honestly say I was never nervous about my surgery. Thanks for making me feel brand new.” LF

Testimonial for Procedure: Breast Reconstruction

“I came to you a truly broken person with no hope of ever regaining the self-esteem lost to surgery gone awry. The first thing you said to me after seeing what was (I thought) a complete disfigurement was, ‘It’s fixable’. Well after one surgery and two revisions, I was beautiful again. I could look in the mirror and feel good about what reflected back. I will forever be your greatest fan.” CA

Testimonial for Procedure: Facelift (Rhytidectomy)

“I’d like to thank you for performing surgery on my face. You have changed my life; I have self-confidence now. Thank-you from the bottom of my heart. You are the best plastic surgeon.” JG

Testimonial for Procedure: Facelift (Rhytidectomy)

“I wanted to tell you ‘thank you very much for what you’ve done for me’. You have given me self-confidence and I like myself again; which it has been a long time since I have felt like that (many years). You’re an excellent surgeon and a caring wonderful person. You’ve changed my life.” PL

Testimonial for Procedure: Breast Augmentation

“I wanted to thank you for doing such a great job with my surgery. I started me search on the internet, and I asked my friends for names of doctors. I had seen three other doctors in the area but I felt most reassured with you and your staff. I was very pleased with all the time you spent explaining things to me and my husband. It was very helpful to know why you do things and why you don’t do things. I thank you for picking the correct size – this was decision we both made together. I have to tell you the new me is great. So with pride and respect I refer to you every chance I get.” KM
