SHORT REVIEW: Dr. Edds was SO wonderful, I turned down 3 of the highest rated plastic surgeons in Louisville to travel 2 hours to Dr. Edds in Owensboro. Both Dr. Edds and his staff made me feel comfortable and they were very patient with the questions I had. Even after countless obstacles (mostly my fault) Dr. Edds worked hard to make my surgery stress free. He went as far as contacting me on his personal cell phone before the surgery to make sure I had my medication. If you live out of town, do not dismiss Dr. Edds. He is worth the drive!! DETAILED REVIEW: I originally wanted a breast augmentation after my sister got one about 4 years ago. I wanted to pay for the surgery without financing, so I saved a couple of years and when I had enough, I began scheduling consultations with different doctors. My sister insisted that I visit Dr. Edds because she had a wonderful experience with him. However, at this point, I was living in Louisville, and I didn't think it was worth traveling back and forth to Owensboro. I started the search in Louisville for a doctor that I liked. I visited 3 of the highest rated doctors in Louisville and found that none of the 3 felt "right." The first doctor rushed through the consultation without allowing me to ask any questions. He truly made me feel as if I were just another patient and did not make me feel as if he was interested my desires. He simply told me what he felt I could and couldn't do. The second doctor in Louisville let me voice my concerns, which were that I would go too big and my breasts would look unnatural. However, even after knowing my biggest concern with the surgery, he pushed me to go bigger than I wanted. The third doctor was a mixture of the 1st and 2nd. I was disappointed because these were supposed to be some of the best plastic surgeons in the state, and they weren't giving me the time or attention I would be paying for. Finally, I decided it was worth the drive to try Dr. Edds. I WAS NOT disappointed. The second I walked into Dr. Edds office I felt comfortable. I took my sister along for support and both Dr. Edds and his staff immediately remembered her even though it had been 4 years since her surgery. His staff is filled with some of the sweetest most genuine women you will find. I did not feel as if they were judging me like I felt with some of the doctors in Louisville. Once I got back to his office for the consultation, Dr. Edds made me feel so comfortable. He did not simply jump right into telling me what he thought, but he got to know me and asked me what I wanted. He joked around a little and made me laugh, which made the process a lot more comfortable. He was very honest with what he thought I could handle being as small as I am and listened carefully when I told him my concerns about going too big or looking unnatural. He explained that his goal is always a natural looking breast and showed pictures of his work. He gave me a suggested size, asked for my input, and we agreed on an implant. I fully trusted him. When I left his office, I knew he was my surgeon. The next day I called the office to schedule my surgery. The receptionist, Stevie, was very sweet and helpful. She knew that I was from out of town and agreed to let me complete the pre-operative meeting over the phone. A couple of days later, I remembered I had a 4th consultation scheduled in Louisville, so I called to cancel it. Somehow, (probably because I was in a hurry at the moment) I mixed up the numbers and accidentally dialed Dr. Edds and managed to CANCEL MY SURGERY! Keep in mind I had no idea I canceled my surgery. I thought I canceled a consultation with another doctor. Two weeks later when I called Dr. Edds for my pre-operative meeting, the error was discovered. Stevie informed me that they had documented that I canceled my surgery. At first I had no idea why they thought I canceled. Then I realized what had happened. I apologized and told them it was completely my fault. They informed me that they already filled the spot for my surgery, but we're able to move things around and reschedule my surgery for ONE day later than the original surgery. I was so thankful especially considering it was MY ERROR. Once everything was worked out. I received my pre-operative packet that was very organized and informative. I had no doubts about what to do before my surgery. They also sent my prescriptions to get filled. When I went to have them filled, the pharmacists told me my pain medicine could not be filled because there was an error with the prescription. It was after office hours and my surgery was the next day, so I was very nervous that I would not have my pain medications in time for my surgery. Not knowing what else to do, I called the emergency number given to me by Stevie. To my surprise, I was put through to Dr. Edds himself. When I explained the situation to him, he was very sympathetic and assured me that they would have my prescription when I arrived in the morning. He even texted me later that night to assure me that everything was ready to go. The day of the surgery went very smoothly. Dr. Edds went reviewed the procedure and confirmed the size for my implants. After the surgery, the staff was still very friendly even though I ended up vomiting from the anesthesia. My recovery went very quickly. It is now almost 8 months later, and my breast look natural and fit the size of my body perfectly. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Edds. I visited a lot of good doctors and he was truly the only doctor who was patient, personable, and made me feel comfortable.

1 year ago I had gone to Dr. Roche for a consult. After having my 3 children I had decided I wanted to feel more confident within myself. Dr. Roche helped me accomplish just that. I had breast implant with liposuction and a brazilin butt lift. The entire process was very professional. Dr. Roche runs a great practice. I love the office girls and the anesthesiologist was great! I was nervous on the day of surgery but they all helped me through it. Of course I was sore but nothing that I didn't already expect. Long story short, I am so happy I found this doctor and I highly recommend him.

After losing a significant amount of weight, plastic surgery was the next step in my transformation process. I researched several plastic surgeons in and around New Mexico and came to the conclusion that Dr. Gallegos was the most qualified. I had a tummy tuck, breast augmentation/lift, and brazilian butt lift done by Dr.Miguel L. Gallegos at Hermosa Plastic Surgery. At my initial consultation, both he and his staff were very friendly and helpful. I had several questions about the procedures and the possible outcomes. Dr. Gallegos was so kind and took the time to answer each and every question I had. He was very clear about his capabilities and did not disappoint. He was able to sculpt and transform my body into one that not only makes me look better but feel better also. It was the best decision of my life. I would highly recommend him.

After deflating a breast implant and returning to my original surgeon for correction only to end up with two horrifically different sized breasts, I elected to have Dr. Joseph Castellano perform the corrective surgery needed so that the width, diameter, volume, nipple height, etc. matched from one breast to another. I knew going into surgery that I couldn't walk away with anything worse than I already had, but glory to all that is good!!!...Castellano artistically reconstructed my breasts, leaving me with the most beautifully perfect results I could have ever wished for. Having had two prior breast augmentations, I did not believe it was possible to achieve the cleavage, slope, etc. that I wanted. Where I twice had everything I hated about a boob job, Castellano gave me every single thing that I love about them. Please take it from someone who's made the mistake and go straight to Castellano. You will be so pleased that even the most conservative of women will be flaunting this man's artwork. Thank you for fixing me doc. I am eternally grateful for what you've done.

Joseph Castellano, M.D.

Dr. Pousti and his team are phenomenal! Heather and Vanessa are fantastic and have been a life saver for me through my entire process. My outcome so far I couldn't be happier with. I have had a few little hiccups due to me not taking it easy enough...Dr Pousti and his team has been there for me every step of the way. They are understanding of patients who can tend to have anxiety and paranoia :) I cannot thank them enough for the beautiful work he accomplished and for their professionalism as well as making you feel like you are more than just another client. I recommended him to numerous friends and my mom is actually going in for a consult now too!

Dr. Reid is the miracle doctor in my breast augmentation case. I had stage 4 capsular contraction on the right breast and it wasn't pretty. It was hard, it sat high up, and it became very painful! It was a 10 year breast job so it was time for a new one. I consulted with other doctors who told me I had a high chance of contraction coming back. Basically, no one had hope for this breast. I consulted with Dr. Reid and felt so comfortable with him. He saw hope and told me about the Stratus. The Stratus was lowering chances of capsular contraction from coming back. There was much scar tissue to remove from capsular contraction, which Dr. Reid meticulously cleaned out during surgery. I did go with the Stratus which was the BEST decision!! I now have BEAUTIFUL breasts- soft, symmetrical, no pain, and most importantly, the capsular contraction did not return! Not at all!! Dr. Reid's suggestion of the Stratus and his great work has given me my confidence back and I cannot thank him and his team enough. Dr. Reid is the best cosmetic surgeon. I am living proof of how he can turn an ugly breast situation around and make for beautiful breasts.

I recently became a patient of Dr. Goldman and experienced nothing but an excellent esthetic medical service at his Beachwood, OH office. Doctor and his staff were very nice, personable and had answers to all of my questions. In addition to that, nurses and the doctor himself took time to explain the treatment and gave me wealth of information about my procedure, and pre and post treatment care. I am very pleased with my results and will be back for other cosmetic procedures offered at Dr. Goldman's office. I was surprised that they cover both East and West side of Cleveland which cuts down on driving time. If you are looking for a plastic surgeon in Cleveland area East or West side, Dr. Goldman is the one office you would want to visit and get your treatment from.

I had my procedure done in 2013. After I woke up from anesthesia, nurses realized That dr. Kalus did not write my prescription. May I also add the fact I woke up crying realizing the terrible work he had performed on my body, he came back to write my prescription and promised that he will re-do his work to my satisfaction as long as I paid for anesthsia. He ended up moving his practice to Charleston SC. Which is 3 hours from me,. I recently went to see him. And he was extremely cocky and arrogant. I was extremely upset with his work and cried. He had the nerve to ask me if I was happy with my life. Lmao... In the end he charged me an extra $3,000 to remove the potful implant he placed In my body. He didn't keep his promise with me.and honestly I wouldn't even ever let him touch my body... I'm looking for another doctor now to re-do his poor taste. I'm bitter and angry. I wish I never went to him.
