5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
Dr. Mussat is the best dr. Ever!..She's truly talented and did an amazing job on my tummy tuck!, she's very caring, patient and truly cares about her patients. I really recommend her as a dr. She gave me my confidence back!
5 out of 5 stars Liposuction
Dr Mussat is really the best liposuction doctor around. I had the 40 year old hips and tummy that just would not go away no matter how much time I spent in the gym. Dr Mussat was professional and explained my options to me which was really informative, I had been to another doctor who had the nurse discuss the procedure options. Not Dr Mussat, she described everything that I would expect, how I prepared for the procedure, what would be done and the after care. My surgery was great, sure I was a little sore, but Dr Mussat really took care of me, I have now lost the weight that I could not seem to move and have a shape that has boosted my self-confidence. Thank you Dr Mussat!
5 out of 5 stars Labiaplasty
I went to Dr Mussat for a labiaplasty in January of this year . I am so happy with the results . The recovery period was easy and I would do it all over again if I had to. I have read so many bad things online about labiaplasty and I am so glad it didn't scare me out of doing it. I really think it depends on you doctor . Dr Mussat is definitely the woman for the job, she is knowledgable and...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
Dr. Mussat makes time for her patients and really listens to them. She is so positive, caring, concerned, competent, conscientious, and professional. She made me feel better as soon as I met her and responded to my emails immediately whenever I had questions. I am truly blessed to be her patient and recommend her with tremendous gratitude, admiration, and respect. She advocated for me when there was an administrative mixup with the hospital and solved my problem instantly. She took off ALL of my stress and that means everything. I still cannot believe how much she supports her patients and am so very, very grateful to her. My best wishes for her continued success in all she pursues.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
Dr. Mussat actually cares about her patients. She did an amazing job on my breast augmentation. Dr. Mussat gave me natural amazing looking breasts . They compliment my body and give me a great deal of self confidence.To top it all off, she even drove about 40 min to come see me after the surgery! When I asked her why she stated: "I don't want my patients driving in pain". How awesome is that?!...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
Dr. Mussat was able to take my vision of what I wanted and make it a reality. The other PS that i got consults from told me they couldn't make me as small as I wanted and she said we can do whatever I wanted! She explained the whole process to me and answered my many repetitive questions. She preformed the "lollipop" procedure on me, which most doctors are not doing these days. This way, I wouldn't have the scar under my breast. The day after surgery she came to my house to change my dressings so I wouldn't have to travel to her office. That was really nice. She is also very responsive with emails, phone calls and texts. Whenever I had a question, she was there, even when she went out of town. She really made me feel comfortable throughout the whole process and I would definitely recommend her. If I decide to have any procedures done in the future, I would only go to her. Thanks for a great experience, Dr. Mussat!
5 out of 5 stars Botox
Well, I would like to say, I couldn't find any one better than Florence!!! The staff was amazing too. She spend a quality time with me explaining things and I was nervous for sure at first, but now I feel like It was my best decision to choose Florence and her team.. I would surely update my experience in coming weeks.. but really the best one I can say!! thanks
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
I contemplated this surgery for a very long time. I went to various plastic surgeons and I almost did it last year but then I decided to see one more doctor and I am glad I met with Dr. M. She didn't rush me into anything like I had felt before. Her recommendations were wonderful and finally I decided to schedule my surgery. I know plastic surgery is elective surgery but it's major surgery as well so I want to make sure I'm in good hands. I have referred even my own mother and sisters to this Doctor since my results were wonderful and her follow up care was superb. She came to my house which completely blew me away because I didn't expect a doctor to make a house call. After my 3month visit she offered a complimentary Botox treatment, Thank you Dr.! I am forever greatful!!!
