5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
My experience with Dr. Mathes was superb! He guided me throughout the entire procedure and answered all of my questions, without any hesitation. I am extremely pleased with the results of my reduction. Dr. Mathes was knowledgeable and professional and I look forward to future procedures. I'd like to mention that he changed my life for the better, and I will always be grateful. Thank you.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction Revision
I foolishly trusted a surgeon who was new to Denver, from Miami, to do my breast reconstruction who I only knew of from an online info commercial he himself paid for to promote how great of a surgeon he was. He claimed he was a "Breast Reconstruction Revision Expert". I was a fool to believe him. When I met Dr. Mathes, the Chief of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the Anschutz Medical...
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
I lost weight also, about 80-90 lbs. I had so much skin on my stomach and back that I was always hot, uncomfortable, and embarrassed. I mean I lived in spanx, compression and support garments. Like I said it was a hot life. Then I had consultation with Dr. David Mathes; who listened to what I wanted and assured me that the hanging skin on my back and stomach was absolutely fixable. He assured...
5 out of 5 stars Body Lift
Dr. David Mathes is an AMAZING surgeon! He is so kind, patient and made me feel at ease the entire way from my first consultation all the way to the final follow up appointment. My recovery was much faster than I expected and my scar is minimal and hides perfectly under my swim suit and undies. I am almost a year out and the scar is very light. I have no regrets whatsoever and am considering a Breast Lift and Implants next. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. David Mathes as you will not be disappointed.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction with Latissimus Flap
After the rather unpleasant year of cancer treatment, it was a pure pleasure to be working with Dr. Mathes and his team. From the very first consult, through the mastectomy and all phases of reconstruction, the team listened to my input, took into consideration the best solution for me and kept me informed at all times. Perhaps the most important part of the experience was that Dr. Mathes...
I love University of Colorado Hospital. I had my colon removed there and the reconstructive surgery. The staff is always amazing. Dr. Mathes explained clearly the procedure. He also was very thorough with his follow up. I felt the procedure was explained in simple terms and I didn't have any questions when I left the office. My experience has been that the staff and doctors are always very caring about their patients.
5 out of 5 stars Panniculectomy
I am 6 months post op from my panniculectomy and tummy tuck with muscle tightening, and I am so happy with my results! The entire staff at UCH was so amazing the day of my surgery (and all of my follow ups since) they did such a great job to help put me at ease, since I was pretty anxious. I met with a couple different surgeons prior to meeting Dr Mathes and he was the only one who made me feel really confident about the procedure. My results are absolutely amazing and they are just getting better as I'm finally able to really workout hard again and as time passes. I would truly recommend Dr Mathes & the UCH Plastics department to anyone considering any plastic surgery, in fact, I have already discussed the possibility of another surgery with Dr Mathes. The anesthesiologists and entire surgical staff was so great, I will be going back to see him for my next procedure!
