5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

36yrs, 120-122lbs, Petite Frame= 3 Kids- All Breast Feed, Very Active. Loves to Lift. Want to Get over the Muscle Implants

Dr. Durkin is the most amazing plastic surgeon EVER!!!! I have seen many in NY and did feel they were what I wanted or energy listening to any of my concerns. I almost gave up and was not found to do the procedure until I found aft. Durkin. From the first conversation, I knew he would be the awesome doctor I would use. I live and flew out from New Jersey specifically for him. His is soo warm and welcoming. He is truly a GEM. He loves what he does and is very knowledgeable . A true artist. I can not express how AMAZING he is. He is worth everything and much more. His staff are equally special. I was really scared and nervous.They all took such amazing care of me and treated me like I was part of their family.I will be forever grateful to them all for making me feel soo beautiful and confident. Any more procedures he will be the only one I will go to. Please, if you are struggling with finding a great Plastic Surgeon----look no further- Dr. Durkin is all you need :-) Love them to pieces!!!!!

Breast Augmentation

I just recently got my breast augmentation done last month (February) at Ocean Drive Plastic Surgery with Dr. Durkin. I have to tell you this was the best experience I have ever had at any doctors office. From the moment I walked into my consultation in January I was blown away by the decor and atmosphere of the office and most importantly the kindness from him and his staff. Dr.Durkins...

Loved my Injections - Vero Beach, FL

Great injector. Good experience. Didn't overfill my lips. I had 35 units of botox and one tube of juvederm xc to my lips. I really liked his approach. He was very gentle with the needle, and it didn't hurt like I have had it in the past. My lips had a small bruise for a day, but beyond that it was a really good experience.

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

The Experience Was Better Than I Ever Expected - Vero Beach, FL

Dr. Durkin owns Ocean Drive Plastic Surgery in Vero Beach, but he saw me at Millefiori Medical Spa in Melbourne with Iris. He was consult number 4 for me, and even though he was a little more money, I felt immediately at ease with him. He must have spent an hour talking to me about my tummy and my boobs. When I left the consult, I felt like I knew so much more than all of the other...

Worst Experience with a Doctor in 58 Years! - Vero Beach, FL

One of the worst experiences I have ever had with a Doctor (or basically people in general). Needed to have breast implants removed & replaced. Over time one had drooped down & appeared significantly larger than the other. Was told at consult no problem to replace & make symmetrical. Was also told a lift was not necessary. The morning of my procedure (also had a tummy tuck scheduled) I...
