This is life changing, all my life I struggled with the way my body looked (my belly). I liked Dr Peters from day one. She's so professional yet so humble... She takes the time to listen to your concerns, and inspires trust. I've been very happy all the step of the way...and the results are exciting! Cant believe I can wear a bikini or dress up with a tight skirt! Thank you Dr Peters for the nice contour!!! I'm excited!

5 stars all the way! I would recommend Dr. Peters to anyone. From the moment you walk into the office, the staff are extremely friendly and professional. Dr. Peters answered all my questions and the results are awesome!

Dr. Peters is an excellent plastic surgeon. (and I've been to my fair share - had a nose job, breasts, CO2 lasering done) Dr. Peters has far outweighed my expectations in a doctor, I only wish I had found her sooner! I originally went to Dr. Peters to fix my lips after another doctor had done a bad job with Juvederm. Dr. Peters took the time to listen to what my concerns were and we were able to fix my lips so they were even. I've had my second injection with her now and both times she has let me come back a week later to fill in some spots on my lips that needed a bit more. (we don't use the whole syringe at once). I would not trust ANYONE else to inject my lips now. Couldn't be happier with the work Dr. Peters has done, truly a one of a kind doctor!

I chose Dr. Peters for my augmentation surgery after doing extensive research online and having a consultation with her. She was very thorough and considerate of what I wanted, and the entire staff at Plastic Surgery & Associates were extremely friendly and made me feel at ease. I am very happy with the outcome post-op.

Dr Peters was recommended to me by my family doctor and radiologist. All the staff is friendly and professional. I can't think of any way in which there could be any improvements as far as the above questions. I especially highly recommend Dr Peters. She stays current with her profession as she had recently learned a new way to perform the surgery I had.

Dr. Peters is first class all the way! Could not have asked for a better Dr. to handle my procedure. She really cares that you are happy with the final outcome!!

It's hard to imagine being, literally, in more peerlessly skillful and caring hands than those of Dr. Mary Lee Peters. For 20 years, as a journalist and then, as a patient, I have found Dr. Peters to be simply without parallel. She listens. She is creative, practical and collaborative. And the outcome is the happy, lasting result one would hope for from an empathetic physician and surgeon who is also -- without exaggeration -- an artist. Susan Paynter

Everything about every experience I've had with Dr. Peters has been better than I would expect.

I've been a patient of Dr. Peters for seven years. When considering breast reduction, she was recommended by my gynecologist and internist, as well as two nurses! She is experienced and skilled; every procedure has been perfect. I enjoy my appointments because she's never rushed, takes time to chat, and makes me feel comfortable. Since my first procedure, she has also removed a facial mole, and given me Botox treatments.

I had been researching breast reduction for 6 years when I finally decided it was time to go through with the surgery. My RN recommended Dr. Peters and I am so glad she did. Dr. Peters and her staff were wonderful to work with. They got me a consultation quickly, kept me very informed and answered any and all questions I had, promptly returned my phone calls, and they even took care of my insurance for me. My only complaint is a small one, but the day of surgery there was some confusion as to the time of the procedure, because the time had been moved around the week prior. My self, the nurses, and Dr. Peters all had different times written down. This was handled very smoothly, though, and I doubt it happens often, if at all. I highly recommend Dr Peters and her team to any and all in the Seattle area looking for a breast reduction. I really would have the procedure done again if I needed it.
Recovery Was Not Difficult, and Was Exactly As She Described It. I Am 100% Thrilled with the Results - Seattle, WA

I contemplated this elective surgery for 5+ years. Once I met with Dr. Peters and saw her portfolio, I immediately knew I wanted to go through with it, with her as my surgeon. She conveys competence, she has vast experience, and she helped me feel like this was a good choice for me. I had complete faith in her.

I researched Seattle's top plastic surgeons prior to my breast implants and abdominoplasty. Dr. Peters was one of three consultations. I chose her mainly because she has a great bedside manner. I knew all three were more than qualified to do the procedures, so it was a matter of personality for me. Dr. Peters is not only a skilled surgeon, she's a nice, thoughtful person. That's important to me.

I had breast reduction surgery. Prior to surgery I had a sore back and shoulders, dents at the top of the shoulders. Dr. Peters explained to me prior to the surgery how much reduction there would be. She was very friendly and professional, along with her staff, pre and post surgery. The results of the surgery are excellent. I have had many people ask me for a recommendation for Dr. Peters.
Posted by waflagal
I had a thoroughly positive experience with Dr. Peters and her staff. My surgery was a breast reduction and abdominalplasty on the same day. I was treated respectfully and professionally with every encounter. To begin with, Dr. Peters was recommended to me by the radiologist that reads my mammograms each year, and my family practice doctor. All my questions were answered or the procedures explained pre and post surgery.

Dr. P and her staff are professional, friendly and accommodating. I never felt like I could not ask any question, no matter how trivial. They provided warmth and reassurance and helped me pick the appropriate implant size for my build and life style.

I really wanted a woman doctor that was realistic with results and could be honest with me. I wanted someone that was patient with all my questions and really took the time explaining everything to my husband and I. She was soft spoken and really cares for her patients. She is experienced and professional and always put me at ease with all my concerns. 5 star doc for sure!!!! I highly recommend Dr. Peters to eveyone because SHE IS THE BEST IN SEATTLE!!!!

Dr. Peters is a very professional, personable & knowledgable doctor. She listened to everything that I said I wanted, answered all the questions I had in terms I could relate to & helped me make the decisions about my surgery I needed to comfortably. After talking with her, I didn't have any second thoughts about those decisons. I have an uneven rib cage & without her advice I would have ended up with uneven breasts (one would have been higher than the other) if I'd gone with the size I originally wanted. I highly recommend Dr. Peters to anybody who is looking for a doctor who is board certified, experienced, is talented & knows what she is doing! Her entire staff rocks, too, by the way.... they made all my visits good ones!

Referral from my primary provider. After researching Dr. Peters I was comfortable choosing her for my procedure. I found Mary Lee Peters,MD and staff very professional and attentive to individual client needs.My experience was made much easier because all questions and concerns were addressed. I am still recovering, but very pleased with the results. The office environment is family friendly and I felt assured that I would and have gotten the best results. As a health professional myself, I would highly recommend Dr. Peters to others considering the same surgery.

Dr. Peters and her staff were extremely friendly and helpful through the whole process. Dr. Peters answered all my questions and reviewed the procedure in detail. She also allowed me to talk to the anesthesiologist when I expressed some concern regarding general anesthesia. I had a good experience and would recommend Dr. Peters to anyone who is looking for a plastic surgeon.

She was just excellent period! I heard about Dr. Peters from referral. This was my second procedure with Dr. Mary Lee Peters and I could not be more pleased! I felt as if I were her only patient. The time and care that she provided showed me that she truly had my best interests at heart. Dr. Peters was attentive to all my concerns throughout both procedures. I am so very happy with my results and I am glad I chose her to be my surgeon. I would recommend her to family, friends and anyone who is looking for an exceptional plastic surgeon!

I learned about Dr. Peters from this website realself.com. I interviewed one other doctor prior to meeting Dr. Peters. The prices were about the same, but Dr. Peters has a professional confidence and track record that is very impressive.

I love Dr Peters! She does beautiful work and I would strongly recommend her to anyone considering any plastics. She has done breast aug for 5 of my friends and is incredibly professional, thoughtful, patient, informative and worth every penny.

Prevelle Worked Great for Me! Good Filler to Test out How You'll Look with Fuller Lips. (w/video) - Seattle, WA
Posted by KateH
This doctor knows how to handle injectable fillers. She knew exactly how to numb me and make my lips look pretty. I have seen horror stories in the past so I made sure to go with someone that had a reputation of doing great injectable work. Plus, since she wears makeup she knows how to give you the look you want! :) Dr. Peters is very friendly and a classy plastic surgeon.

I loved Dr Peters from the moment I met her. I was very comfortable with her, she listened to what I had to say, cared about the results I wanted and her staff was amazing. They were very helpful and always was available when I had questions. Everytime I e-mailed Dr. Peters, she responded the same day with in a couple hours of my e-mail. She cared about me and my recovery. I lived 2 hours from her clinic and during the time I had an infection, she would have seen me everyday day if I will willing to driver there. She truly cared about my recovery. She did what I wanted her to do and that was to take care of me. Dr. Peters made suggestion that would give the results I was looking for. She did not pressure me to do anything I did not want to do. She was always friendly, attentive and professional. I really appreciate the work and care she did on me and I would highly recommend her.

Personal referral. Dr. Peters and her entire staff are warm, welcoming, professional, and experienced. They took great care of me from the first time I walked into the office through all of my follow-ups. The atmosphere is professional, the staff are knowledgeable and courteous, and Dr. Peters is great at what she does! I knew I was in good hands through a friends' referral and my personal experience couldn't have been better. Highly recommend!!!

Dr Peters and her staff are all very professional and friendly. I reseached many doctors befores making my choice. Her results and reviews spoke volumes. I researched about 20 Doctors in the Seattle area and was drawn to Dr. Peters because of her reputation and also the pictures of her results. Not all Doctors before and after photos look the same. I was impressed that she was rated so highly by her peers and that her patients after photos had the most natural looking results with minimal scaring. I scheduled my first appointment and was greeted by a very professional staff that made me feel comfortable about the process, fees and what to expect from the procedures. My first appointment with Dr Peters was informative and she discussed all of my options to achieve my desired results. We decided on a full tummy tuck and a breast lift. She answered all of my questions and there were a lot! I tell everyone about her great work and would not hesitate to have her work on me again.

A well-defined jaw line and neck is an attractive feature and culturally seen as a sign of confidence. Chin augmentations are on the increase; up 71% in 2011. Here are some of the more subtle reasons why: A small chin can make the face imbalanced. Ideally the upper, middle, and lower thirds of your face should be about the same size. A recessive chin can make your nose look big, or out of proportion. A weak chin or jaw line can make your neck look prematurely aged...
New System for Sizing Your Breast Implant Choice One of the biggest concerns for women planning a breast augmentation is how to select the implant volume that will most closely match the outcome they are hoping for. If your surgeon does all the choosing without having you participate in the decision, the chance for unhappiness is high. If you decide for yourself without turning to your surgeon’s experienced advice an inappropriate choice is also...

By Mary M. Mitchell SEATTLE | Mon Apr 9, 2012 4:14pm IST (Reuters) - Four generations coexist in today's workplace, each with a different set of perception glasses through which they see the world, their colleagues, their work, and themselves. And generational differences aside, each individual has a different set of needs, a different set of motivations. There is, however, some commonality: everybody wants to be at their best, to feel good, to look good, and to perform well. The...
