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.

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,...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Removal

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...

44 Mom of 4 - Torrance, CA

Dr. Burrell did my breast augmentation in early June 2016. She is wonderful and made me feel comfortable and informed through the whole process. The office staff is great to work with as well. As a forty something mom of four my goal was to put back what the pregnancies and nursing did to my breasts. She spent time consulting with my husband and I and the 3D imaging to pick the right...

41 Years Old, 1 Child, 19 Month of Breast Feeding - Torrance, CA

It was a little bit scary at first to make the decision to go forward with the procedure, but once I met Dr. Burrell, I knew I was in good hands. I never doubted her for a second. She understood exactly what I wanted and right before surgery I told her that I trusted her and, based on what we had spoken about she can do whatever she thinks is right for me - and she did. Dr. Burrell and her entire staff are nothing but professional, knowledgable and trustworthy and accommodated my needs down to the smallest detail. I am so glad I chose her and highly recommend her.
