5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Did My Research. Highly Satified with Dr. Ptak - Phoenix, AZ

I researched several doctors before choosing 5 to interview for my procedure. Yes, doing your home work is crucial. I chose Dr. Ptak for a plethora of reasons. First, he is very thorough in his explanations. Second, his note worthiness in many publications and references. Third, his amazing techniques and staff. This review would be complete if I didn't say how wonderful and caring Marilyn is....

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Mother of Two Needed New Boobs! - Scottsdale, AZ

I used to be ok with my breasts before I had my two children. But pregnancy and breastfeeding twice took a toll on my boobs. They depressed me so much. I was unhappy with my appearance and I felt unattractive to my husband. I was a SMALL 32B at 5'2 110lbs. I decided to get saline implants, under the muscle, and the incision under my areole. I ended up with 310cc in both the right and left....

5 out of 5 stars Thigh Lift

55 Years Old, 120 Lb Weight Loss at Age 15 in 9 Month. Second Time...1st One at 19 - Scottsdale, AZ

It's always scary, but always worth it. To deal with being over weight is one thing, to deal with the skin (so young) is another...almost worse. Dr. Ptak cut the skin from my inner thigh, knee to groin at age 55. I had it done at age 19. It was like days in the hospital and unheard of back then. Losing 120lbs at age 15 in 9 months without dieting,, just commonsense lifestyle changes. My...

5 out of 5 stars Ear Lobe Surgery

Ear Lobe Repair - Scottsdale, AZ

I went to Jeffrey Ptak Plastic Surgeon American Board Certified. The staff is very friendly and kind. Top service, and Dr. Ptak himself has a way of making you feel very comfortable. His level of expertize is amazing and worth every bit of investment in my physical rejuvenation when dealing with any of my facial or body areas. My ears next day after surgery are not even uncomfortable! I...

4 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

Long Term Success of Capsulorraphy (5'6" 135lb, 305cc Silicone Moderate Plus Implants, Under the Muscle)

I had a breast augmentation following breast feeding to recreate my pre pregnancy breasts. I love the natural look just having overstretched pocket issues.I had a breast augmentation in Aug 2008. I'm 5'6" 135 and have 305 cc silicone moderate plus implants under the muscle. Within a few months of surgery I noticed that my right implant (I am right handed) fell into my armpit when lying down...

4 out of 5 stars Photodynamic Therapy

40 Years Old. Large Pores, Acne and Sun Damage - Scottsdale, AZ

I was told to undergo this procedure 3 years ago by my dermatologist. I wasn't ready at the time. This time around my Plastic Surgeon recommended it, stating that I would achieve the results I was looking for without undergoing major surgial procedures. I went into the drs office the late afternoon before treatment. Levulan was applied to my face with very little discomfort. Went home and...

Thermitight = Nightmare - Scottsdale, AZ

In no way did I want to give a "crummy" review. Unfortunately, I have to say that I am not happy with my result following THERMI-RF to my neck. I am super sad and disappointed 6 months later. I do have a thin neck but the laxity to my neck was quite evident and a "turkey-gobble" seemed to be growing by leaps and bounds. Long story, but I visited a reputable plastic surgeon in Scottsdale for...
