"She provided me with honest answers about which procedures would be appropriate for me (tummy tuck and lipo) and which would be a waste of money (lipo on my bottom)...." "Rather than try to talk me into going larger than I wanted she assured me that I was making a great decision for my body type." "I do not have visible scars from the breast lift- they have healed beautifully."

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

38 Yrs Old, 2 Kids (C-sections), Always Embarrassed of my Tummy

After having a consult for a TT years ago with a different PS and walking away feeling uneasy about the doctor, it was wonderful to have an initial (free!) consult with Dr. Alderman and walk away in total confidence that Dr. Alderman was who I needed to do the surgery. She understood me. Being a female, she knew what I was going for and what areas were my biggest frustration. Her manner is calm, easy going, and assuring. I knew I would be in good hands. She takes her work very seriously and there have been no surprises. The total cost for the tuck was very reasonable. The Swan Center overall, has been a great experience and I would highly recommend anyone in the Atlanta area to get a consultation from Dr. Alderman. You have nothing to lose (except what you want to lose!).

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

42 with 3 Children over the Course of 25 Years, Mommy Make Over Needed. Alpharetta, GA

Dr. Alderman is a professional that understands the female spirit, needs to improve body image changed by age and childbirth and medical side of the procedures. The Swan Center and Dr. Alderman exceeded my expectations for this entire experience. Dr. Alderman is passionate about her craft and talent and loves breast augmentations and takes the time to consider best practices for the most professional successful look for the patient. Dr. Alderman was just as much interested in my new look as I was and made sure i was clear on aspects. She connected with me and was personal with me and my family that arrived at various appointments. All of her staff of nurses, office staff and surgery clinic members treated me like i was the only patient. I felt as if i was going to consult with friends on each visit pre and post-surgery. Each time the bandages were changed they were just as amazed at the progress as I was amazed. I wouldn't put the care of my Mommy Make Over into the hands of any other team of professionals.

31 Years Old, Finally... the Breast Augmentation That I Have Been Contemplating for Years - Alpharetta, GA

Dr. Alderman, if I could sum it up, is a dream come true. She listens, is easy to talk to, and is available when you need. During the consultation, I described to her the look that I wanted. I feel that the results I have gotten are 1000 times better then what I have envisioned. She is great at what she does and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a plastic surgeon.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

Breast Implants/ Liposuction, 50 Yr Old. Alpharetta, GA

I researched for 6 months plastic surgeons around Atlanta, GA. Dr. Alderman has a stellar background with breast augmentation and reconstruction - lectures around the country. I wanted to go to a female surgeon as well. Once I met Dr. Alderman, I was extremely comfortable and confident in her to do my procedures. Her bedside manner was reassuring and friendly. She was very accessible for any questions/concerns before and after my surgery. She called me at home to check on me. I highly recommend Dr. Alderman and have referred several patients who are equally pleased!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

I Couldn't Have Chosen a Better Surgeon! - Alpharetta, GA

Dr. Alderman was attentive, kind, and understanding throughout the entire process. She answered all of my questions and I never felt rushed during my appointments. Her follow-up care was fantastic. She even called me at home to see how I was faring. Dr. Alderman listened to my concerns and was very forthcoming with the benefits as well as the risks of the procedure. My results turned out beautifully. After only five weeks, my scars are almost unnoticeable. I believe that's because of the excellent care she provided. I would recommend Dr. Alderman to anyone, without hesitation. She is a wonderful surgeon and she changed my life.
