5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Amazing patient care

I had breast reconstruction with a DIEP flap procedure. Dr. Burrell was not only outstanding at surgery, but she was very patient and caring throughout. She always listened to my concerns and answered any questions without making me feel rushed. It was a long surgery for her and a long process, but I always felt that she put patient care first. She exceeded my expectations when she was...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

My experience was outstanding

Dr Burrell, Was outstanding, I have always struggled with my breast size being 5"1 and 120 I was a 32FF and now I am proud to be a 32 C. Dr Burrell was kind and caring and had my best interest in mind she made this procedure as smooth as possible. For anyone who is unsure about this procedure should look into a consult with Dr. Burrell. I was nervous about the recovery process the day after...

Truly caring and professional!

I'm extremely fortunate to have been referred to Dr. Burrell. She is graceful, professional and truly cares about her patients emotional well-being.

A true perfectionist!

I'm so grateful to have found Dr. Burrell! She's one of the most kind-hearted and skilled doctors I have ever met. She's an artist and perfectionist and I could not be happier with my results. Each visit with her felt comfortable and I never felt rushed. She took the time to really listen to all my questions and concerns to ensure I'd have the outcome I was looking for. I would recommend...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

She is simply the best

I went to several plastic surgeons for a breast lift and augmentation before finding Dr. Burrell. I was so happy to finally find Dr. Burrell because she made me feel comfortable and did not try and talk me into anything I did not want. She did an AMAZING job and I could not be happier with the way I look. She is there for you every step of the way and even after !

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction with Latissimus Flap

Dr. Burrell Was Great the Whole Way Through

Before I even had my double mastectomy (due to a Breast Cancer diagnosis and BRCA1 gene), I knew that I wanted Dr. Burrell to perform my breast reconstruction with Diep Flap. I had experience watching her interact with a past patient and I perceived her to be direct but very kind, which is what I need from my physicians in such a situation. I felt her consultations were always informative,...

An Exceptional Individual

I am grateful to have been referred to Dr. Whitney Burrell. What impressed me most is that from our first meeting, her focus was not just about my body, but about ME - who I am, what is important to me, and what would make me most comfortable. She is extremely caring, thoughtful, and insightful. (She also brought up helpful suggestions regarding my overall health that I hadn't even...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

The most amazing medical experience of my life!

There aren't words to express how grateful I am for Dr. Burrell’s time, attention and expertise. For years I suffered from nagging shoulder, back and neck pain. Four different specialists told me the issue was due to aging. I finally received authorization to see Southbay Plastic Surgeons and they determined that the root cause was due to breast size. I had the good fortune of being seen by D...

I Love my Boobies! - Torrance, CA

Dr. Burrell and the entire staff were amazing through my BA surgery process.. from the consultation to the surgery itself to now being 5 weeks post op. She really took time to go through all my options of sizes, with the size I wanted, what would look best and still be safe. I'm completely happy and in love with my results. Money well spent and well worth it! I loved having a woman as my...
