5 out of 5 stars Laser Surgery

The Perfect Surgeon for me.

I couldn't be happier with the 2 laser treatments that Dr. Core has done on my face . At my consultation I asked him what he recommends to make my face look younger and he said 3 laser treatments, a lower face lift and a brow lift. He explained why and I accepted his professional opinion. He is a wonderful person and I can tell he really cares about his patients and the results. I trust him...

5 out of 5 stars SculpSure

63 Years Old,exercise Regularly, Eat Well

Had my upper abdomen done with 4 paddles, Sarah was great and I'm very happy with my results. Will do more parts. Had a friend who did CoolSculpting about same time and he has numbing and lumps and I have none of that. The procedure only took 25 minutes and the machine was calibrated to my pain tolerance.

5 out of 5 stars Body Lift

Wonderful surgeon, LBL and Breast Lift

Sept. 2016....Dr. Core is great. I did a consultation with him, after I lost 110 pounds to remove excess skin from abdomen area. After an hour, decided on Lower Body Lift. Prepared me well. He told me up front it was the hardest recovery of all the surgeries he performs, from 1 to 10....a 10. He was right. I'm 11 months post op. Very happy and glad I did it. I'm from Huntsville. He was about...

33 Year Old Loved my Results. - Birmingham, AL

Best surgeon!! And I have worked around a lot of surgeons. He is about your outcome NOT how long it takes him. He is VERY detailed and wants perfection!!!

1 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

40 with 4 Kids - Birmingham, AL

I wanted to have a breast enhancement because after breastfeeding 4 kids my breasts looked like a picture out of national geographic. After consulting with dr core I told him I wanted to be back to where I was before breast feeding, size b/c, and that I wanted sailer implants. He said okay and the surgery was set. After surgery he made me a DD. I was undrstandibly upset and he told me if I...

38 Year-Old, Much Needed - Birmingham, AL

I am a 38 year old mother of three and have been debating this for over ten years. Largest problem is me being afraid of anesthesia. Im 5"8 264 pounds and a size 42G. My last physician said i needed to lose weight first and I have lost 20 pounds or so, but my back pain prevents me from doing so much. My company had to order me a special chair at work, otherwise I couldn't sit up long enough...

29 Year Old, Major Hyper Pigmentation from Sun Damage and Acne Scarring - Birmingham, AL

I had a BBL (Broadband light) treatment at Dr. Core's office today. The procedure was absolutely seamless. Staff was extremely professional, friendly, and helped me set very clear goals for outcomes. Excited to see the results. This procedure has no downtime and can have amazing results. Pictures to come.

29 Year Old Female, in Need of Revision Rhinoplasty - Birmingham, AL

Going in for a revision rhinoplasty on August 13th, 2014. So far my experience with Dr. Core and his staff has been absolutely pleasant from the initial consultation to the second visit, where we addressed last some minute concerns. He spent as much time explaining the procedure and the possible outcome as necessary. He even has a great sense of humor, something most doctors lack. So far I...
