5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

My AWESOME Breast Aug. - Birmingham, AL

Dr. S, and the staff at Hedden Plastic Surgery are AWESOME! I live 1000+ miles away from the facility, but after my cousin referred me to them, I found that it was well worth the trip to have my surgery done there. The facilites are GORGEOUS, which makes a girl feel nice :) All of the staff is so kind, and patient, and make you feel like you are their only patient. I must have called 20+ times with silly questions and last minute travel changes, and the staff never tired of my calling! As for my results, my breasts look GREAT! I thought I would defintely need a lift, but after my consultation, Dr. S had a techinique of placing the implant in such a way that it gave the illusion of a lift, without all the extra surgery and scarring. I am SO happy with my new breasts, and would reccomend Dr. S and Hedden Plastic Surgery to ANYONE! :) *While I suppose it is possible for another place to be AS good as this, it is IMPOSSIBLE for any place to be better ;) ~Angelina

I Loved my Outcome the Minute I Saw Them! - Birmingham, AL

Dr.S made me feel very comfortable and he also helped me make the big decision as to how many CCs to obtain. He took the time to look at photos I brought from the internet of both what I called good and bad implant jobs. He is GREAT! I plan to use him for my upcoming tummy tuck as well. I would recommend him to anyone.

Neck Lift, Lipo on Neck and Lower Jowls, Upper Lids After Stomach Band Surgery/ Weight Loss - I Like Me Again

Dr. took the time to answer all my questions and was very gentle and solicitous when I returned to have stitches removed. Everything he explained is exactly what happened. No surprises!

Great Doctor and Staff - Birmingham, AL

I was nervous about having Botox for the first time but I'm so glad I did! Dr Schaffer and his staff was very friendly. Dr Schaffer listened to my concerns and picked the best treatment for me. Dr. Schaffer also offered numbing cream to help ease my mind about any discomfort which was little to none!

Better Than I Ever Imagined - Birmingham, AL

Dr. Schaffer can be a little intimidating because he is pretty serious. But that's one of the reasons I picked him. He is very focused and knows what he is doing. I would much rather have a surgeon who is confident and knowledgeable than one who is extra chatty and maybe not so concise. The patient care pre and post surgery is fantastic and they really try to make you as comfortable and at ease as possible. You won't regret going to him!

Dysport Injections - Birmingham, AL

I recently had dysport injected by Dr. Schaffer. He and his staff are absolutley the best! I felt at ease throughout the entire procedure. They used numbing cream in the beginning and gave ice packs afterward. Truly exceptional facility, staff, and service.
