Before going under the knife, my husband and I did our research and educated ourselves on the doctors in our area.The result of our many consutations with other doctors, was Dr Arabitg. We both felt his were the safest hands. He explains the surgery,the recovery and the result so there are no surprises. Dr.Arabitg has done a tummytuck, Breast Augmentation,Botox, IPL and many facial Peels. He also did my husbands' facelift,eyes,Botox and fillers. We would NOT trust anyone other than Dr. Arabitg to alter any part of our body. We trust his opinion and have sent our own mothers to him. We recommend him to our friends. I strongly recommend him to anyone who is seeking to have plastic surgery. His staff is also very attentive, professional and kind. We have always been treated very well in their office.

I just love Dr. Thornton and how he's helped me. I would trust him with my daughter or anyone else that I care about it they were ever in my situation and I am a very picky person. When there were things that I personally weren't happy with the way they looked Dr. Thornton has gone above and beyond to address/correct my concerns.

In 2009, at the age of 34, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. After all of my tests pointed to a mastectomy, my surgeon made me an appointment to meet Dr. Moody. And, oh, how I thank God that he did! First of all, the result of my reconstruction surgery is absolutely amazing! Dr. Moody put a tissue expander in place at the time of my mastectomy, and she later replaced the expander with a permanent implant. The results were far more than what I expected. In my clothes, no one would EVER know that I had cancer and lost a breast. It is incredible what Dr. Moody can do! Second, and MOST important to me, is that I dont know how I would have gotten through my cancer diagnosis and treatments without Dr. Moody and the ladies at her office. They took such excellent care of me after my mastectomy and reconstruction surgeries, and they all were so very supportive of me. Every visit with them just brightened my day, and plus knowing that I was in such excellent care was so comforting to me. They helped turn a serious and stressful situation into just a bump in the road! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU, to Dr. Moody, Miss Jan, and Miss Kathy. You are an awesome group of ladies, and all 3 of you have been a blessing to me and my family. I will be forever grateful to you all!!!!

I was 24 years old. Had a 2 year old and was 9 months pregnant when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Not only was I completely shocked, but i was scared! When I thought of cancer I thought of death! So, here I am with my husband and 2year old son in my general surgeons (Dr. Wheeler,Easley) office , as he tells me one of the hardest things I possibly will ever hear."You have breast cancer"! I remember looking at my son (playing as usual in a doctors office)and the sweetest smile he gave me,and then thinking I'm gonna die and I havent even seen my baby! That was the longest 20 minute drive home i ever had! Four days later I gave birth to a beautiful, & healthy baby boy. I thought during my whole maternity leave, I was was going to be overwhelmed with "cancer stuff" but it wasn't. I met with an oncologist, Dr. Jorgenen, a radiation dr. and a plastic surgeon Dr. Moody. I took a genetics test and found out that I had the "cancer gene" and it would be in my best intrest to have bilateral mastectomy, hysterectomy, and chemotherepy. Two months later I had a bilateral mastectomy,(I had cancer in 2 of 19 lymph nodes in my right arm) and Dr. Moody put the expanders in at that time. I never was that big to start with so when I awoke from surgury I was already bigger than when I went in..lol. I have finished Chemo. and now my hair is starting to grow back! I remember a time when i would have a bad hair day and scream out "I HATE MY HAIR", thinking if only I had it back!! A couple of weeks ago I had my expanders taken out and implants put it. I didn't feel hardley any pain. I was cutting grass within 2 weeks with a push mower! I am extremly pleased with the way I look. Hopefully by the end of this year you wont even be able to tell that the last year even happend to me! I want eveyone who has a similar situation to know that it is not the end of the world. keep you "bald" head up and keep going! It gets better!!! I thank God that he gave me a second chance to look at life differently. And, I thank Dr.Moody,Jan and Cathy. You did a great job! and a thanks to Dr.Wheeler, Dr. Jorgenen.

Dr. Moody and her staff, Jan and Kathie, are the very best for making a woman feel they are interested in you and want the best for you. I would highly recommend Dr. Moody for surgery and for her bedside manner. Her interest in her patients is her first priority. My results have been great and I am very pleased. She and her staff are the very best!!

First of all I would like to say that Dr Sholar has become like amember of my family. She is the sweetest most kind Doctor I have every met. She took me from a deformed shell of a person, from breast cancer and horrible radiation, to a person that is not afraid to be seen in a V neck shirt. She is very professional, and knowledgable about her field. I would HIGGHLY reccomend Dr. Sholar and her staff for just about anything. You can just put yourself in her hands and just let her do her magic...it is wonderful!

I was horribly scared and disfigured after reconstruction surgey so badly that for 10 years I could not even stand to look at my self. Then a doctor recommended Dr. Kayser to me. What a godsend he was for me. I finally feel like a woman again and can look at myself. Thankyou so much.

    Breast augmentation is one of the best known forms of cosmetic surgery. It also incidentally receives some criticism from the public.

    While many patients report a completely positive outcome, those who are considering breast reduction surgery should understand the potential pros and cons of undergoing the procedure. As is the case with any type of surgical process, every patient has a unique experience. It’s important to know what could happen beforehand. These pros and cons represent some of the most common findings reported by patients who have elected to have breast reduction surgery done:
