Best Surgeon! I can Breathe again thanks to his wonders. I had a rhino plasty done at his office very professional manner. He is very knowledge and his staff is great too, highly recommend him for any type of surgery.

Dr. von Maur is so professional and very kind. He is meticulous and he listened to every single detail I gave him. He gave me a couple consultations because he wanted to be sure I got exactly what I wanted. I could not have had better results and he was really amazing in post-recovery. I trust Dr. von Maur so much that I’m also going to him for my sun spots instead of to a dermatologist.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Removal
Even though it didn't go as I'd hoped, I didn't go to Dr. von Maur for cosmetic reasons. I knew I could trust him medically. I saw him enough times to really get to know him and his character. He clearly prioritized my health over everything else, and that made me feel safe. It was a really scary process and he was always calm and reassuring with the facts and all my options. He also has a wonderful staff. They are warm and made me laugh when I came in. It took the weight off the pressure and fear I was feeling.

I absolutely love Dr. von Maur. He stood out from the other surgeons I visited because he is so calm and not rushed or pushy. He explained at length about the encapsulation and what he was going to do to fix it and the cleavage. He recommended a bigger size than I would have thought I'd like, but because of his confidence and demeanor, I trusted his choice and I am glad I did. His work is impeccable and he turned out to be more affordable than some of the doctors I didn't care for. His wait times are minimal and I can always get an appointment right away. He took care of me completely every step of the way.
5 out of 5 stars Vampire Facelift
I wanted to go with a doctor instead of an RN for microneedling, so I consulted with five plastic surgeons before I found Dr. von Maur. They each would try to convince me I needed work done I didn't want, but Dr. von Maur was different. When I brought up other procedures, he'd say "I wouldn't recommend that for you." So I trusted him. Where other doctors had said it'd take 5 or 6 sessions for the microneedling, Dr. von Maur said he could do the treatment in one session, by going deep in some areas, such as my nose. I also think it's great that I didn't have to pay for the consultation, and I didn't feel rushed when I was with him.
5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover
Dr. von Maur's reaction to my new look was priceless. He has told me how impressed he is, but I told him he's the one who did the work. His work on me made up for the past. During my surgery, he found two hernias, and he fixed them. He really went above and beyond. He was always caring and thorough. From the first moment I trusted him completely. He never rushed through our appointments, and took the time answer all my questions. He was careful to tell me step by step how everything was going to go. He is tops, and the best doctor for me.

Dr. von Maur is amazing. He was a total contrast to the residency students we went to see, who would've just done the surgery and one follow up a week later. Dr. von Maur keeps checking up on us. It's the 4th or 5th time we've gone in to the office this year. I think that's why we're healing so well. He is really an artist and very professional and serious, but we love to make him laugh. He has been so encouraging all along. I was so nervous, and he really helped by giving big pep talks before the surgery. When I woke up, he was there to say it turned out perfectly. And he was right. I love the way I look and I'm no longer embarrassed to stop at red lights.
Dr. von Maur is a complete contrast to other surgeons and facilities I consulted with, in which felt like I was just another means of getting a buck, not an actual person with needs. Sometimes they would criticize my body to get me to feel insecure so I would be willing to have them fix me. When I walked into CosmetiCare, Dr. von Maur greeted me warmly and said, "Great skin!" Then he sat down with me and asked me where I wanted my nipples and what look I wanted. He was all about giving me what I wanted. I told him since I'm in my 50's, I would like them "fluffy." He understood what I meant and told me how he would create that look. He's worked on ladies that work in the office, and they are happy with their procedures. I'm very much looking forward to my surgery.
5 out of 5 stars Liposuction
A true artist! I was very pleased with the liposuction I received on my lower back and saddlebags. It has been years and I am still very happy with the results. I have seen a lot of his work and was very impressed by the talent he has. He answered all of my questions and gave me great post care. Thank you Dr!

I was relieved that Dr. von Maur was no-nonsense and matter of fact, because I feel that's part of what makes him best at his work. I wasn't treated like a number, either. I was made to feel comfortable at every point. He did an excellent job and I'm relieved to have new breast implants now that will last a long time.
