35 Year Old That Finally Made The Change. Alpharetta, GA

I've been wanting implants for 15 years and during that time, I've heard rave reviews about Dr. Bauer. I've actually seen his work and his natural results, so when it was time to finally get rid of these baby A cup breast, there was no doubt in my mind who I would call to perform my surgery. I'm 12 days post breast augmentation surgery with Dr. Bauer and I couldn't be happier with my recovery...

Very Satisfied with Results. Alpharetta, GA

The Swan Center and Dr. Bauer were wonderful. I had an extremely positive experience from the very first email I sent, the response was very quick and followed up with a phone call. The consultation was so informative, they had lots of pictures to go through for me to try to get an idea of what I wanted. The nurse was very calming with my fears, and then when Dr. Bauer came in to see me I had absolutely no reservations about going through with surgery. Dr. Bauer was so personable, I felt like he really listened to me and answered all my questions, he didn't rush me through at all, he spent lots of time talking me through anything I wanted to know. His staff from the front desk, and especially the nurses were all very encouraging, supportive and very friendly. My whole overall experience was very positive. I am 6 months out from surgery and so happy with my results. I would highly recommend Dr. Bauer and the Swan Center to anyone considering breast augmentation surgery.

32 Yrs, 2 Breastfed Babies and After Shedding the Weight Wanted to Fill Up my Bra Again! - Alpharetta, GA

Dr. Bauer and his staff at The Swan Center of Plastic Surgery were top notch, amazing professionals. I was confident from the beginning that I was in great hands. His nurses were exceptionally knowledgeable and friendly, they made me feel like a close friend, that I could trust with my real concerns and feelings of myself and my body. Dr. Bauer was very delicate and polite always showed great disposition and energy. I perceived that he really enjoys what he does and he trusts his skills and experience, which reassured me of my right choice of surgeon. I am only about 2 and a half weeks post op and I feel phenomenal! When I expressed my satisfaction to the nurses they keep telling me it will only get better after they settle in a couple of months from now! I can't wait to see my final results!

Almost Perfect - Alpharetta, GA

No complaints. I went to Dr. Bauer after seeing positive reviews on various websites. He's known for breast augmentations and you can see why. The Swan Center (where he is based) had the most before and after pictures of anyone and they were very straightforward in their pricing. He is warm and smile-prone, very disarming.

5 months and counting!

Hi, I'm 30 yrs old, I'm 4ft 9 and I weigh 117 pounds. My surgery is a gift to myself for my 31 bday. I just left my consultation, I thought I was a 34B, but the doctor said I was a cup. I have a 6 yr old son when I was pregnant I gained 17 pounds. My breast didn't get that much bigger. But as I get older they dropped and are smaller. I have wanted BA surgery for 13 years. I loved the doctor I...

I met with Dr. Bauer now twice for a consultation. I really liked him and he has a great bed side manner. he didn't rush me through the visit. stayed with me as long as I need to and answer my question. when I went back for a second consultation to discuss different options he spent just as much time as the first. the nurses are very warm and friendly as well.
