5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
My breasts blew up to a size 36 DDD, or E after I had my daughter. They were fibrous and heavy and not only did they get in my way, they actually hurt -- them and my back. I'd been considering breast reduction for years but was afraid they would be messed up as I've had friend's who've had nightmare scenarios and they went "to the best guy in town for...." I finally...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision
My breasts implants had been in far too long, and had developed nearly every issue possible when they are not replaced sooner. I was so nervous to see a doctor and have to face a complicated surgery, but was soon put to ease after meeting Dr. Brenner, Amy, and the entire staff. I want to add that the surgery was performed on December 21, 2011, and am already working and feeling great. I...
5 out of 5 stars Mohs Surgery
Dr. Brenner is a master of his craft and a credit to his profession. The proceedure went flawlessly and was a very very pleasant experience. I found him to be extremely competent, laser-focused during the proceedure and blessed with a keen sense of humor. From my first appointment with his wonderful and most professional Patient Relations Manager, Amy to my final examination, I was...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift
Great surgeon, great staff, great results After having three kids, two of which are twins and 18 years later, I felt like I needed a lift and so did my breast! Having said that, I went in for a consultation and came out with a breast reduction and lift. Life as I know it now is "perky" and I'm loving every minute of it! I feel and look 20 years younger...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
Procedure was good and didn't feel much pain afterwards which was surprising. Recovery period was short and the healing process is going okay as well.
5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
I was very nervous to have a nose job, and met with many different surgeons for consults. However, when I finally met Dr. Brenner I knew he was the surgeon for me. He put me at ease immediately with his great bedside manner and confidence. He really spent time with me, creating a plan for my operation...and came up with some new ideas and techniques that none of the other surgeons mentioned who I had met with. His office is great...and his staff (Amy in particular) was fantastic, and was always available to help me with my concerns. I really love my nose now!
I would only recommend Dr Brenner and his staff Amy and Jessica . They are the most personable and compassionate people. You can talk to them with any of your concerns before and after your surgery. You can text them also and they always get back with you right away. I can remember I needed an ultra sound before my surgery which was days away. I could not get an appointment anywhere...
3 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
I'm a 29y/o mom of two and so excited to have a flat belly again! Scared about recovery. I have been waiting for this for a long time. I've had two c-sections and they hurt, so I'm dreading this pain...Can anyone share their experience to ease my anxieties? I love fashion and can't wait to fit in clothes the way I use to (no muffin top!). I wanted to lose 10lbs before the surgery to get as...
5 out of 5 stars Botox
I was developing lines around my eyes, forehead and mouth.There was really no pain. He used a tiny needle. Although the sound of the needle going into the skin was a little creepy. It was very quite and I might use head phones and listen to music if it really bothered me. down time? none. I had 2 tiny spots that bruised but it was so minimal make up covered it easily. Results took about 4 days...
5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover
Dr. Brenner is my life-altering hero! Everything from his exceptional staff, his wonderfully supportive surgery coordinator, Layla, his caring and friendly personality, and highly skilled work is nothing short of miraculous! I was nervous about scheduling multiple procedures within weeks, but now, just a couple of weeks post-op, I'm amazed by the results and quick healing process thus far. I...
