5 out of 5 stars Laser Resurfacing

Erbruim Yag Laser Face Resurfacing and Extensive Fat Fill Great!

My doctor (a women), used partial closed, partial open healing, KNEW about pain management and made my entire experience almost Painfree! I feel like I am a very important person to her, and my face matters VERY much to her.

The Best - Tucson, AZ

Dr. M is the best. I would not consider going to another Plastic surgeon. I would say she is like an artist she sculpts your body. Another thing she offers the service of staying the night in a spa suite after surgery and you are being monitored by your own private nurse. Of course after my intense surgery I choose to stay the night and I am so glad I did. The only reason I didn't give her five stars in payment process is because I paid cash. If you want the best you need to go to Dr. M.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Removal

3 years post explant update! Feels great to be me.. now implant free! Living life natural and happy! :)

I had my implants placed in 2006 when I was young and was only really concerned with the present, I didn't think about the future and made a decision I now regret! I was a 34A prior to augmentation and like most of us who have implants, I had them placed for a confidence boost and to better fill out my clothes and bathing suits. I liked my augmented breasts at first when I was in my 20's, but...

24 Year Old, Mother of 1, Needs Them Out! - Tucson, AZ

I am very excited to finally be moving forward with removing these foreign objects from my body! I have been considering having them removed for over 2 years, but I became pregnant and that put all of this to a halt. My son is now 8 months old and my breast are saggy and bottoming out. I am NOT happy with them and am ready to have them removed asap. I met with Dr. Maxwell today and she advised...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck with Lipo - Tucson, AZ

Dr. Maxwell and her staff have been great. I found out about her from her Mommy Makeover open house. I thought that the staff would be pretentious and stuck up. Boy was I wrong! Those women are all amazing!! They are super nice and totally make it seem like working there would be the best job ever. Dr. Maxwell really takes the patients’ needs into consideration and she is very honest. I thought about changing out my implants, which would have cost and additional 5k and she told me no, I have great boobs and she won't touch them. Totally not the answer I expected because who would think that a surgeon would turn down money? I was absolutely sold on her from that moment on and I have been very pleased with my decision.

1 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty-I Had a Few Issues but Now I Have So Many More. Tucson, AZ

She was very unhelpful in follow up. She offered to do a revision, but if she was able to mess up this bad the first time, I did not trust her. I sought help from another doctor for revision

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

Dr. W. she is wounderful..

Dr.W. she is so amazingly smart and professional. I choose her because she was the only female Dr .in Tucson that did breast implants back in 2009. She is wonderful. Great job... Thank you . Armida
