5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Small-Framed 29 YOF | BA Complete! - Scottsdale, AZ

I found Dr. Brown through research on the internet. His entire office staff are so welcoming and friendly. Dr. Brown is professional, yet warm and makes you feel at ease. He has a sincere enthusiasm and passion for what he does. Dr. Brown even called me the night of my surgery just to check in and make sure I was doing OK and provided me with his home phone number. I have absolutely no reservations in recommending him!

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

I Hated my Sagging Face - Sun City West, AZ

Dr. Brown and his staff are incredible. I chose Dr. Brown after interviewing 4 other plastic surgeons. Dr. Brown gave me a comfort level I did not experience with the other doctors. He was very straightforth and spent the time to answer my questions and his staff kept me well informed through the entire process.

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

I Had Forgotten That I Have Nice Eyes - Sun City West, AZ

Dr. Brown and his staff have been with me throughout my procedures. They are very responsive to questions and concerns.

So Far So Good - Scottsdale, AZ

My mother in law was her doctor too and had amazing results!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Wouldn't Want It Any Other Way! - Scottsdale, AZ

He was great in every way. His office staff... not so much! Woman in billing seemed to know little about insurance. In the end it all worked out. Dr Brown did my breast reduction about a month ago. My experience was exceptional. The office was prompt and I was in and out in no time. Dr. Brown never kept me waiting. He made me feel comfortable answering all of my questions as well as my partners. He made me feel in good hands which gave him my trust. I knew right away he was going. to do my surgery. His passion for what he does and drive for perfection told me that I wasn't going to come out of surgery with nothing less than what I envisioned. He did in fact exceed my expectations. They're perfect. His judgment couldn't have been any better. I like the size & shape, the incisions are very clean and I have come to heal very quickly. He did such a clean and amazing job. I just don't know how to describe it how much more comfortable I feel with myself. Thanks to do Dr. Brown, this entire process was made very easy for me. I highly recommend Dr. Brown.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

From Storm Cloud to Silver Lining - Sun City West, AZ

Dr. Brown was recommended by my breast surgeon. I interviewed one other plastic surgeon and found Dr. Brown to be much more up beat and responsive to my questions. A double mastectomy can crush anyone's self esteem and confidence. Knowing that reconstruction was an option for me, helped tremendously. Dr. Brown's matter-of-fact way of relating to me as a person as well as his patient reassured me during a very stressful time of my life. He came highly recommended by my breast surgeon and I was glad that they would work together. The reconstruction process lasted about 6 months and was not always easy. Dr. Brown and his staff were supportive, optimistic and comforting throughout. The final outcome is the silver lining in my storm cloud of breast cancer. I love my new "girls" and look forward to enjoying life with confidence.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Highly Recommended - always wanted to get implants. But wanted to go subtle - Scottsdale, AZ

My experience with my breast augmentation was great from start to finish. Dr. Brown and his staff listened to what I wanted and made me feel comfortable throughout the whole process. I have a high level of trust for him and am so happy with my results. The staff called me before and after my surgery numerous times to check on me, which I really appreciated. They were so caring! I am very happy for choosing Dr. Brown as my surgeon. He has a great work ethic, is honest, safe and personable.

4 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

27yrs Old, Back/neck Pain - Phoenix, AZ

Dr. Brown is a wonderful man/surgeon. I still refer people to him instead of the surgeons that I work with @ 2 different hospitals. His wifey @ the front desk makes ur experience even more exciting.(She's a doll). However I do believe that O.M.(Staff) could have set up home health care for dressing changes I needed for my specific procedure as I asked her, rather than attempting them myself....

5 out of 5 stars Scar Removal

43 Yr Old, Scar Revision - Scottsdale, AZ

See above

Ending 29 w/ Boobies!! Natrelle 410s - Scottsdale, AZ

My Plastic Surgeon is amazing. Very calming, understanding, encouraging and I felt empowered everything I was worried about or thought I would be extremely uncomfortable doing i.e. taking my shirt off...I felt extremely comfortable just as comfy as I would if I were in a room alone.

Filler for Cheeks….Yes, Please

Rejuvenating the face is an art form and may include lifting brows, removing under eye skin, sculpting cheekbones and sagging jowls, and tightening the underlying muscles and skin of the face and neck. In a perfect world a facelift will do just fine, thank you, but what’s a girl to do with limited funds? Pass the fillers please! Volume loss in the face is one of the most recognizable signs of facial aging. And it’s pretty simple and affordable to correct. FDA approved...

Feel Like Flying?

Upper arms got you feeling down? Aging doesn’t just affect the face. Unfortunately, our bodies show age in places that sometimes just don’t seem fair. Here in Arizona, where we wear short-sleeve shirts almost year round, I frequently get consultation appointments from patients eager to do something about the sagging skin on their upper arms. An arm lift, or brachioplasty, can remove excess skin from the arms and is often performed after massive weight loss. If the...

Choosing Your Surgeon

The most important decision you can make with respect to your health and well being besides leading a healthy lifestyle full of exercise and healthy foods, is what doctor you choose. In this day and age because medical reimbursement from insurance companies has decreased, all types of physicians are trying to do more and more elective cash pay types of procedures. Every doctor everywhere is doing any and everything nowadays whether they were trained in residency or not to perform those...

Breast Augmentation and Breastfeeding

Breast Augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures that Dr. Rick performs. We spend a good hour with our patients going over health history, the actual procedure, what to expect before and after surgery and realistic expectations. A common question that patients ask us is whether having a breast augmentation surgery will affect breastfeeding in the future. The short answer is no. Having breast augmentation should not affect whether you will be able to breastfeed...

Breakdown of Costs for a Breast Augmentation Surgery

As a plastic surgery office, we receive phone calls all of the time regarding pricing for a Breast Augmentation. The answer to this question is not as straightforward as it sounds. The final quote is made up by the many services and medical devices (implants) required to complete the operation. Your best bet is to book a consultation, and meet Dr. Brown for an in-office evaluation so that we can quote you the most accurately. In simple terms, there are four parts of a quote...
