Dr. F is an amazing plastic surgeon. He preformed my breast augmentation and did a fatastic job. Several other plastic surgeons told me previously that I would need a lift, Dr. F said otherwise. I can't express how confident I'm feeling in my results and how happy I am to have chosen him. His pricing was also extremely affordable, I paid $4800 for my procedure, with silicone implants. For saline, he charges $3800.

Dr. Fryer is a great surgeon and is also very responsive after the surgery. I had to call him a few times after the surgery with some questions and he was quick to get back to me and that he was happy to answer any question, any time. I am pleased with the results, glad the surgery and recovery is behind me, and grateful I live in a time that this is possible.

If you are considering eyelid surgery and/or a brow life, Dr. Fryer is your guy. I would recommend him to anyone who wants an excellent surgeon. I woke up one morning about six months ago and realized my eyes were looking very old and small. I contacted Dr. Fryer. He and his staff were wonderful to work with. The pre-surgery information, the actual surgery, and the post care were outstanding. Everyone on his staff knows what to do and does it well.

I have always wanted to have implants done. I've had three kids and my breasts looked like deflated balloons. As I was doing some online research I came upon Dr Fryers website. I was so impressed with all the info he had listed. (I was a little intimidated to make a phone call.) After seeing all the great stuff he had I took a leap and made an appt. They sent me a pamphlet right away. From the beginning I felt so comfortable I was worried about the recovery time. I was back to work in a week and could have went back sooner if I wanted to. Every thing the good dr told me was exactly what took place. The pain the first day felt like I had my milk coming in. It also felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest. But with each day that was less and less. I had a breast lift which made me very nervous that I would loose all feeling in my nipples. The loss was minimal. I looked like Frankenstein for a couple weeks with all the sutures, but I followed his direction and started taking the vitamin E supplement. Three months later n the scarring is minimal and honestly by the year mark I'm sure they will s very faint. I absolutely love Dr. Fryer and his staff they were so good to work with and very helpful. It was also comforting to know that Dr. Fryer taught plastic surgery at the University of Utah. It took almost 4 weeks to get into him but it was worth the wait. A friend of mine decided to get hers done 2weeks after me. She couldn't get into my dr. He didn't have her use the strap to help push the implants into place and even 2 months after the procedure she looks like her breasts are sitting in her throat. Her dr promised a rapid recovery, but the pain was more than she could stand. I had hardly any bruising and the with her she looked like she'd been beat with a bat. He was so worth the wait and the extra money. They saying you get what you paid for. Well this is a life altering experience and you dont want to regret it. My self esteem has changed for the better every mom should treat herself!!

My experience with Dr. Fryer has been good. I chose him because he is board certified. The consultation and explanation was satisfactory, and the surgery itself went as planned. My scar is thicker in depth than I would like, so I went back to him for scar therapy. He has been helpful throughout it all. Dr. Fryer explained everything in great detail so I know what to expect. He told me initially that I could expect a pretty good looking belly button, and he was right! I must say that I am very satisfied with the appearance of my belly button.

I am extremely pleased with my results, and I'm only one day PO! Dr. Fryer and his staff are great. My husband was very impressed that he (not a nurse) called last night to check on me, and answered my husband's questions. At my f/u appt he told me that he was having his office manager cut me a check for my overpayment (since I didn't get the thigh lipo.) He said that if I didn't mind waiting, he could get it for me while I was there. I didn't even have to ask about it!

Excellent plastic surgeon! I feel so lucky that I didn't have to shop around for one. He is knowledgeable, kind, accepting, and professional. I will most definitely be going to him for any other plastic surgery procedures I may need in the future.

So far so good. I will update more as things continue.

I have had a great experience with Dr. Fryer! He is so kind, patient and knowledgeable. He answered every question I had and with absolute honesty in my pre-op appt. The first doctor I went to was scamming me and only does the same implant for everyone which is a little scary to me. Dr. Fryer discussed all of my options with me and I don't think my results would look as good as they do already if I had gone to anyone else. He also uses the rapid recovery method and he doesn't advertise it as a method to get patients. I will never go to anyone else for any other procedure and I am so happy that I went to him for this. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a great plastic surgeon who you can trust to make you look great.

I consulted with several physicians when I was considering breast augmentation. I did lots of research on the internet and tried to read all the blogs I could . I realized that none of this was necessary after meeting Dr. Fryer. He answered all my questions and went even further in educating me on breast augmentation. If you are considering having a breast augmentation surgery, I wouldn't recommend anyone other than Dr. Fryer. Not only Dr. Fryer himself, but his entire staff is friendly, educated, compassionate, and willing to teach you whatever you need to know. They were patient while I asked questions and understood the need for this. For all of this, I have Dr. Fryer to thank.

I did my research big time... Fryer truly is the best. One of my best friends dads is a surgon in the same building... Even though I could have gotten a family friend discount & paid a lot less I still went with Dr.F. He is worth every penny... i paid $5000..now hiding my boobs from my friend is going to be a problem.haha

Like many others I used the internet to read profiles and bio's online before calling for an appoint with a board certified plastic surgeon. I sent photos to another plastic surgeon for an online consultation and was told my case was "too complex" and I was referred to another surgeon. That surgeon was out of town. I called Dr. Fryer's office based on his online bio and experience. I was able to get an appointment in a short amount of time. I planned on making several appointments and meeting with several surgeons before deciding on who would perform my Rhinoplasty because the surgery would be in such a noticeable place, on my face! However, after meeting with Dr. Fryer I booked the surgery without making any more appointments. He put me at ease and his staff was so confident in his surgery skills that I felt I was in safe hands. He talked with me at length about what he could do for me. His office does not offer a computer generated before and after. Dr. Fryer explained that is because you can make a nose look like anything on a computer screen and sometimes those images aren't realistic. I appreciated the honesty of what was realistic for me. I still wanted to look like me after all, just better! He told me that people who see me all the time wil of course notice a difference, but people who don't see me very often may not even notice the subtle change. He made sure I was doing this for me. I would tell anyone contemplating Rhinoplasty, that indeed that is the reason to do it, for you. If you are not happy with something about your face or body, just get it fixed! We live in a day and age where it is possible and very common. And thanks to Dr. Fryer, affordable. Time will come and go either way and what you think may be a huge ordeal with a lot of explaining to people isn't. People don't necessarily notice what is different about you they just think you look great! And better yet, you don't have that "thing" that bothers you nagging at you. You can just live life!

From referrals from other Medical Professionals. After doing some research and being referred by other medical professionals, I chose to visit Dr. Fryer and his staff. From the first visit, which was very scary to take that robe off and start having that uncomfortable discussion, they made me feel very comfortable and at ease. Dr. Fyer and his staff were very professional and I made the decision to go forward with the surgery. Dr. Fryer had explained all of the details of the surgery and the recovery and I felt very informed and ready for the procedure. I only wish that I had done this years ago! Thanks Dr. Fryer, you and your staff are fabulous!

I had spent months on researching doctors in my area to do my breast augmentation and I had been to a lot of consultations. When I had my free consultation with Dr Fryer, we spent quite awhile deciding what implant I would be happiest with. Most of the other doctors I had seen prior just handed over a big implant and would say "yeah, that looks great". I didn't even need to think twice about who I was going to go with. I scheduled my operation for that week! Dr Fryer and his nurses make you feel extremely comfortable, they answer any questions or concerns you have, and they make sure you are happy. My recovery went very well and I absolutely love my end result! I am very happy with how proportionate my breasts are to the rest of my body. I would reccomend Dr Fryer to anyone and everyone! You will not be disappointed.

I chose Dr. Fryer because of the information provided on his website. I appreciated that he had taken the time to put together the breast augmentation planner for people like myself looking for all the answers before meeting the surgeon. I felt he really knew what he was talking about. The only thing that was slightly under par was the wait time to a couple of my appointments. I did wait up to 20 mins past my appointment one time. My husband did comment to me when he came to pick me up from my surgery that he felt he wasn't given a lot of information on what to do. He was only given a piece of paper with instructions. Even with that being said, it was still a great experience. My experience with Dr. Fryer and his staff was nothing but GREAT! I was a bit nervous going into it because I had always hated my breasts and after having kids hated them even more, but from the moment I stepped in to the office I felt very comfortable. During my consultation I felt I was being listened to and that I was given honest and informative answers. Dr. Fryer was great with my husband as well, making him feel he was apart of the whole experience. I chose Dr. Fryer over the other surgeons for many different reasons. His prices were very reasonable. On his website, there is a free breast augmentation planner that was absolutely AMAZING! It went over everything in detail about what to expect. It made me feel comfortable knowing that he really does know what he's doing before I had ever met him. I had later found out after I had chosen to set up a consultation with him that 2 other girls I knew had gone to him for their surgeries and had great compliments about him and his office and how they are loving their results. This was the best and easiest decision I have ever made!! Thank you Dr. Fryer and staff! :)

I chose Dr. Fryer after being referred and reviewing his website. Exceptional is not a high enough rating! Dr. Fyers demeanor is just as wonderful as his work. I am forty-four years old.

Dr. Fryer was excellent!! Dr. Fryer was quick about getting me into the OR so he can get it taken care of immediately. I've been very impressed by their professionalism and quick responses to my questions and concerns. I think overall, it was a great experience at a wonderful price!

I have had six children, one pregnancy was twins. I had extra skin that I could not get rid of and decided to have a tummy tuck, and re-breast augmentation. I am so happy I choose Dr. Fryer. My whole experience with him, and his staff was very professional. Dr. Fryer strives for perfection and I knew he wanted the best results as well as I did. I wasn't just another surgery.

I was referred by my ob. I originally was going to interview several doctors, but after 1 visit, I felt comfortable and at ease about the surgery. My surgery was a bit more complicated, the worse Diastasis recti Dr Fryer had ever seen and during surgery I ended up having a complete abdominal reconstruction and placing my intestines back in my chest cavity. After surgery I had a lot of swelling and went in to the doctors about 2x of week for a few weeks to have swelling removed. Dr Fryer was more than willing to see me even if I didn't have an appt to ensure a good outcome.

The staff was professional and put me at ease. I expected to be embarrassed but that was not at all the case. They were especially helpful in picking the right product and size.

Dr. Fryer is such an amazing PS. I was a little nervous about the size of implant I wanted. At the very last moment I called and was so concerned that I had not decided to go bigger. He was so understanding, as was his assistant, Brooke. I did have a bigger implant put in than first decided on and I'm so glad I did. I could not be any happier than I am right now. The size is perfect, the assymetry is much better. My nipples are really even. (posted day after surgery)
