5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

TUBA--BEST decision I have EVER made.

It's comforting to know that you are in good hands, with someone who practices new procedures(TUBA) every single day. Super sweet guy! And one more thing I love about this dr, at the last minute I told him I wanted 400cc or 425cc, whatever he thought looked best. He sat me down & said, "I may think you would look great in 500cc's, but that may not be what looks good TO YOU. You need to decide what size you are comfortable with, the size that you think looks good." This meant a lot to me. Many PS's make decisions for the patients & the patients aren't happy with the results. He made sure that what I got was what I wanted. And I am very satisfied. He's such an amazing, highly talented surgeon. If you are on the fence about who to choose as your PS, you won't regret Dr Hedden! I am very happy with the outcome, Dr Hedden is very talented. I JUST WISH I WOULD'VE GONE BIGGER!!!!!

Happy! Wish I Had Gotten Them 30 Years Ago - Birmingham, AL

Not only does my doctor get a 5 star rating, his entire staff does too. Starting with Heather who set my appointment, answering all my question to Carol and especially Penny, nurses who went beyond the call of duty . I emailed Dr. Hedden on a Saturday evening , he responded back in 20 mins. Dr. Hedden is the only cosmetic surgeon I can recommend

I wouldn’t change a thing about my experience - Thank You - Birmingham, AL

Dr. Hedden and his staff were absolutely wonderful!! I came all the way from Dallas Texas to have my surgery done. I wanted to make sure I found one of the best plastic surgeons.He offered many different options for out of state patients. After speaking with his out of state patient coordinator and different girls at the office, I was able to figure out the best option for me, and I was even more excited! I decided to do his 3 day stay program.On the day of my consultation I was super nervous (but who wouldn’t be). His office was beautiful and the staff made me feel very welcome. Dr. Hedden was great and took his time during my consultation. The following day was my surgery, and everything went as expected, just perfect.I was able to send in my 3-4 week post surgery pictures to Dr. Hedden’s email and spoke with a nurse for my follow up. It’s been 3 months since my surgery, and I wouldn’t change a thing about my experience.I couldn’t be happier with my choices and results.

Great Injectable Experience at Hedden Plastic Surgery -Birmingham, AL

I had one of the best experiences with Dr. Hedden and the staff at Hedden Plastic Surgery. I recently made an appointment for my first injectable treatment with Dr. Hedden for Botox. Being a very conservative person, I didn't want my treatment to make my face look frozen or stiff and still wanted a natural look minus the fine lines and "11's" on my forehead. Dr. Hedden and his staff were extremely knowledgeable and great at listening to all of my concerns and explaining any questions I had. It is an extremely busy practice, so it is really comforting to know that Dr. Hedden still takes the time to listen and explain. I will definitely be using Dr. Hedden again in the future for all of my injectables!!!

Could Not Be More Pleased! - Birmingham, AL

Dr. H and his staff are great. From the moment I met him for my consultation for brest augmentation I knew I did not want anyone doing this for me but him. All my questions were answered and I knew he would take good care of me AND do a great job! I highly recommend him to anyone wanting cosmetic surgery of any kind.

Absolutely Ecstatic - Birmingham, AL

Over the last year I have lost some excess weight through diet and exercise. Despite my extremely active exercise program I was still unable to loose specific pockets of body fat. Also, due to the weight loss, my face had lost fat and was looking aged; to include sunken eyes and deep smile lines. After coming to the realization that more exercise would not get rid of the body fat and more...

Smart Lipo 3 Weeks Ago on Abs and Flanks - Birmingham

Had smart lipo three weeks ago (5/19/10) on my abs and flanks. My surgeon removed 350cc from each flank and a total of 800cc from my abds. (I thought I could have spared alot more fat than that) LOL. I was getting a little concerned because I did not think I was still swollen but my surgeon says I am. My surgeon assures me that I can expect to see at least another 1/3 reduction in my abds....
