I'm 48 & It's Time for ME! TT & Lipo of Thighs - Carmel, IN

Hi everyone! Been stalking for awhile & waiting for a long time. My PS had a cancellation Friday March 7 so I took it! I'm obsessed with TT before & after photos. I'm so nervous. My bf travels a lot & our children are raised & out of the house. It seems I'm getting very nervous sitting here alone. I'm wondering if I made the right decision, worried about the pain & recovery. Everyone thinks...

4 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

38 Years Old, Breast Reduction - Carmel, IN

Dr. Turkle is wonderful. Working in the medical community for years, she was highly recommended by my colleagues. She is very knowledgable and I would use her again for any future procedures. She did a fantastic job!

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Great Outcome - Carmel, IN

I am extremely pleased with the whole experience. Dr. Turkle is very skilled and her staff is efficient and friendly. I can't believe the difference from how I looked before, and how I could see before the procedure. My vision is so much better now that my eyelids are open! I plan to schedule additional procedures in the next year or 2 to address other issues. I could not be happier with the results.

5 out of 5 stars Arm Lift

Beautiful Arm Lift Results - Carmel, IN

Dr. Turkle and her staff are truly professional and very caring. I felt comfortable with Dr. Turkle from the very start and completely trust her. She doesn't try to "sell" plastic surgery, but cares about what will be best for the individual. She does things in a very thoughtful way and I'd actually call the contours that she creates through surgery, artistic and beautiful. She and her staff went over everything that I needed to know prior to surgery and they are wonderful with the after care. They have alway's made me feel at ease and that I mattered. I would highly recommend her!

Scared to Death - Carmel, IN

I went to have my consultation with Dr. Turkle and I was very nervous. I had been shopping around and although I had seen a few doctor's, I alway felt as if they were trying to sell me something that I did not ask for. One doctor made me feel as if I needed to have this, this and that done. It made me feel self conscious and it was insulting. Dr. Turkel was kind, professional and only...

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Mommy Makeover - Carmel, IN

I really wanted to find a Female plastic Surgeon. She was obviously very good at what she does if I'm not curled up in a ball. Dr Turkle did my tummy tuck with out drains! Yay! I was dreading that piece of it. And as far as after care I don't know because I haven't been to my Post Op appointment, so I couldn't grade my experience yet.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Day of Breast Reduction Surgery - Indiana, IN

The surgery itself felt like 5 seconds long because the anesthesia made me go to sleep and when I woke up it felt like they just put me to sleep. On the way home I used a pillow over my breasts to put my seat belt on with and that really helped. Positioning yourself and icing is what makes the difference. The pain today is worse but I stay on my pain pills as required every three hours and...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck W/ Lipo - Carmel, IN

She is the very best plastic surgery in Indianapolis and carmel! My friend had her tummy tuck by Dr Turkle also!

5 out of 5 stars Lower Face Lift

So Far, Very Pleased - Indianapolis, IN

I didn't like seeing all the bags and sags in the mirror, especially the mirror at work! I got a lower face and neck lift. I didn't do my eyes, I might save that for later. I was really happy when I got done that everything seemed fine. I could smile and I looked normal. I was afraid of nerve damage. My neck and jawline look so much younger! My surgeon is great. She's very calm and obviously...

I believe the best cosmetic surgery is the one no one knows you had. Our goal is for you to look like a better version of yourself; not like someone else. I believe I owe it to my patients to respect their time and investment and to give them my undivided attention.
