5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Ronda's 2010 Bodywork - Florida

I did quite a bit of research on my own before picking Dr. B and his staff. I had a clear picture of what I wanted and reasonable expectations of the outcome. I made sure I had help at home and someone to take me to follow-up appointments, which by the way were 2 hours away. The entire staff at Dr. B's were just wonderful. The hospital, which was Flowers Hospital, in Dothan, Alabama, were just as wonderful. Dr. B told me my surgery would be 5 hours long..well, in my case, there was a problem when he opened my chest...BOTH implant were ruptured and goo filled my chest. My surgery ended up being 9 hours long..but what a wonderful job he did. I had no idea that had ruptured and the 4 week old mammogram did not reflect a rupture, either. It took us all by surprise.

Dr. and his staff have been extremley attentive and patient to all of my many questions and concerns

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

In the Army; Need Some Guidance :) - Alabama, AL

Dr. Baker was an easy choice for this procedure. On top of being certified by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and American Board of Plastic Surgery, he also belongs to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, which is not an easy task to find. He was also selected to participate in the Mentor Core Gel Study which served to gain the FDA's approval of silicone gel in 2006. Dr. Baker was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, and he suggested going over the muscle because I'm still in the military and can't afford to wait around for months to regain chest muscle strength to do push-ups. I'm glad he suggested this and am extremely happy with the results. The ladies at Dothan Plastic Surgery are so nice and always available to answer any question. Lord knows I've called them many times and each time they've treated me with kindness and caring. If you live far away and an make the trip to see this doctor and his staff for your surgery, you will not regret it. He is more than qualified to work on your girls and will give you amazing results.

Great Surgeon - Dothan, AL

One saline implant went flat after 8 years. I had both replaced. Improved results with second breast implant surgery. This surgery had much less pain involved, a smaller scar, and better placement of the implants.

So Proud and Pleased with my New Look - Dothan, AL

The whole staff of Dr. Bakers was fantastic. They made me feel at ease during the whole process. I would definitely recommend his office. The before and after photos are a HUGE difference. My smile has never been bigger !!! I was skeptical before but after it was amazing. I encourage any woman that does not feel 100% to do this procedure.

38 YO W/Major Weight Loss & Prior Breastfeeding - Dothan, AL

Dr. Baker is an outstanding surgeon! From the consultation to each post op visit, he has always been incredibly kind, informative and honest. He's a no nonsense doctor that will tell you the truth about what you can expect. I want and respect that in a doctor. Dr. Baker runs an office with an amazing staff as well. Every lady there had always been kind and helpful. I've been shouting out Dr. Baker's name to everyone and anyone and telling them what a tremendous doctor he is. I'm SO happy that I chose him as my surgeon!

Beautiful Work - Dothan, AL

After much research, I determined Dr. Baker is one of the most renowned surgeons for breast implants. I flew across country, just to have him as my surgeon. He assuredly did not disappoint! He removed implants and placed gummybear implants, moderate profile, 440 cc, bilaterally. I am 5'7" and 121 pounds. He removed saline implants, 330 bilateral. The new look is perfect.

Very cut and dry PS. Knows his stuff and tells it to you straight. I am very confident that my results are going to be perfect.

After a Baby...needed New Boobs!! - Dothan, AL

Good experience, nice doctor, nice nurses. He is very confident and should be. Good hospital experience as well too. As soon as I was in the surgery room, he was in within 5 min and I went under 5 min after that. The healing process was painful, but that's expected. Wish I saw him more post opp though, but the nurses did well too. They are healing well, and look GREAT! Just what I wanted!!!

Dr. Baker is competent and his staff is great! Despite his lack of bedside manners, I would recommend him to anyone pursuing a BA, as he is very knowledgeable and seems passionate about his work.
