Everyone in Dr. Drehsen's office is professional, competent and pleasant. Dr. Drehsen does excellent work and his staff is dedicated and efficient.

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Very Natural Nose - Tampa, FL

Dr. Drehsen looks at your whole face and gives you the nose you should have been born with. He is very professional, a little on the serious side, but I don't care as long as I'm happy with my result. Also, his fee was the most expensive, but I know that you get what you paid for so I was ready to pay more for a better result. The staff was very nice, especially Elizabeth who is the Patient care coordinator, they were very open with sharing the procedures they had done and just very friendly overall.

5 out of 5 stars Brow Lift

The Best Plastic Surgeon - Tampa, FL

My experience with Dr. Drehsen has been very positive. I would not trust my face or body to anyone else. In my opinion, Dr. Drehsen is the only plastic surgeon that is truly gifted. Only one look at his patients before and after pictures will prove this review. Dr. Drehsen is the best plastic surgeon in Florida and possibly in the United States. I am a very satisfied patient of his and will continue seeing him for any surgeries in the future. Michelle Nunez, Miami, Florida

Saftey and Trust is Everything!!!! - Clearwater, FL

Don't go for the deal of the month. You will be sorry!!! Make sure your getting quoted apples for apples. Dr. D is by far one of the best reconstructive surgeons across the country. DO YOUR HOMEWORK. Knowledge is power and I am glad to recommend him to anyone.His approach made more sense to me than any other doctor I had a consult with. He was more expensive then some of the doctors but I knew the job was going to be the best. I reviewed his before and after pictures and got to speak with several of his patients. Don't waste your money if your thinking your going to get a good deal for cheap...you will pay in the end. Dr. D is the plastic surgeon your looking for!

Great Breast Lift and Aug Revision!!! - St. Petersburg, FL

I had a previous breast lift/aug with a different Doctor and was left with horrible, bottomed out, saggy breasts. The left side was completely bottomed out and the right was out of pocket and leaning towards the side. They were extremely uneven due to a poorly done breast lift. I chose to go to Dr. Drehsen and he fixed the assymetry and also added fat to the cleavage area and they look...
