highly recommend Dr. Baxter to anyone who is considering getting plastic surgery. Dr. Baxter was recommended to me by a friend, who had her procedure done with him years ago. When I had my consultation with him, I immediately knew that I was going to go with Dr. Baxter and his staff. Everyone was very professional, answered the million questions I had for them, set realistic expectations and provided me with honest opinions and answers. And most importantly, they made me feel comfortable and trust that I was in good hands. I had my surgery last week and now in the "recovery stage." I feel great and absolutely love the results. My fiance, family and friends are extremely impressed and I am thrilled and very very happy with how everything turned out!! Every appointment and every contact I had with Dr. Baxter and his staff, has been amazing. Robin (nurse) has been awesome at providing me with reassurance that everything (from the pre-opp, the surgery to the post-op appointment) was going to be okay. And everything has been great~ Thank you Dr. Baxter and staff!! Definitely best plastic surgeon in the N.West!!

Everyone at Dr. Baxter's office is professional, caring and very forthcoming about treatments and what you can expect in terms of expected outcome, downtime and discomfort. They steer you away from treatments that will give minimal or no results. Alicia, who's given me a facial and did the Ulthera treatment, is fabulous!

Thank you to Dr Baxter, Lori, Sarah, Robyn, and Lisa! Consulted with 4 different PS over 3 years and scheduled my MM after my 1st consult. Staff loyalty to me is equally important as patient loyalty and Dr Baxter has both.

Dr. Baxter is truly a remarkable artist. He is soft spoken, but cares about each of his patients. He really does listen!

Dr. B is an outstanding physician and a overall wonderful man. He's a good listener, thoroughly answers all questions and recommends the best solution based on your needs. His presence is very calming so you immediately feel comfortable. Dr B consulted with me and Alicia performed the treatments. Yes, it can be painful in certain areas but Alicia was constantly checking in on how I was feeling and took frequent breaks when it started feeling intense. She was very sweet and I really enjoyed our conversation. I highly recommend Ultherapy, Dr B and his amazing team.

Dr was very professional and his office was impeccable! Friendly staff, and an amazing technician. He made me feel confident in my decision, and she helped me laugh through the uncomfortable zaps! Also, I didn't once feel awkward for being a guy in a cosmetic surgery office.

Mini Tummy Tuck
EXCELLENT DOC! Dr. B just preformed two surgeries on me Breast Augmentation & mini Tummy Tuck. I had 3 prior consults with highly rated docs around Seattle/Bellevue area...I just knew Dr.B was it when I met him. He's up-to date, knowledgeable, though quiet he has a great personaity and disposition. And more importantly a great surgeon with more options! Dont let any other staff personalities sway your decission, ask the doctor your questions directly ...remember nurses may not have all the answers, or the right answers. UPDATE: Excellent, personable staff & new nurse (well new to me). After over a year with Dr. Baxter as my surgeon I have given Dr. Baxter and his office staff all 5 stars. I feel comfortable and safe there, I would go to no other surgeon...even if I move I will fly back to see him.

I had asked about before and after pictures of Ultherapy patients. I was told they needed to work on their portfolio and didn't have any. However because Dr. Baxter is so prolific on Real Self I felt comfortable using him. However, now I think the reason they don't have any before & afters is because they don't follow up with patients. They have never called me.

Dr. Baxter is a great surgeon who has changed my life. I am constantly still baffled as I look in the mirror- I can't believe my long-term fight with my body image has improved this much. All of his staff are amazing and made me feel super comfortable. Any little issue that came up for me during the recovery process was dealt with quickly and without reservation. Dr. Baxter's use of exparel during surgery kept me pain-free throughout recovery too, which is hard to believe considering all the things I had done. I feel like I made a really good choice when I picked him and I will never regret my decision to undergo my mommy makeover. Dr. Baxter did an awesome job on every part of it!

I had a tummy tuck and breast lift with Dr. Baxter. The doctor and his staff took a wonderful situation and made it great. I consulted with four doctors total. Dr. Baxter was worlds apart in his approach to my consultation. He made me feel comfortable, answered all my questions (of which there were many) and didn't try to "upsell" me. In fact, at one point, when I asked if I should consider liposuction in a certain area he told me he didn't feel the end result would justify the recovery and cost of the procedure. GASP! Dr. Baxter is a man of integrity. I felt supported the entire way, Sarah, Lori and Robin were always there to answer questions, give encouragement, root me on. This was my chance to return the favor. I don't regret it for a second and whole heartedly recommend Dr. Baxter if you're searching for a surgeon.

The idea of using one's own fat for breast enlargement sure seems like a win-win scenario: remove it from where you don't need it and put it into the breasts for a completely natural augmentation. But is has a con
