5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Unmatched Level of Skill

Dr. Gerstle’s advanced surgical training and unmatched level of skill have made me a life-long patient for any future procedures. Not only are his results impeccable, but he is completely focused and takes as much time as anyone could possibly need for consultations and post-op visits. Moreover, he is extremely detail oriented and holds himself to the highest standards. Every single time he w...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift

Lift That is Worth It!

I had an augmentation 3.5 years ago after breastfeeding left me deflated. My surgeon convinced me that I didn't need a lift. Clearly a year later, it was apparent that I did. Insert Dr. Theo Gerstle, he took the time and attention to explain what could be accomplished with the lift. His results exceeded expectations. I still have a natural appearance but by far more symmetrical and fuller. He...

Wonderful and caring experience!

Dr. Gerstle and his staff are extremely friendly, worked with my budget, and did a fantastic job on my procedure! Every time I go in for an appointment I leave feeling more confident and happy with the choices I have made for my body!

5 out of 5 stars Mini Tummy Tuck

Update from Complication Surgery After Mini Tummy Tuck/bbl

Dr Girstle is super attentive almost more concerned than myself but he's a perfectionist in my opinion and is so obsessed with what his end result will be he won't give up on you until you no longer need him .. then he may still text and ask how you are lol

I Haven't Felt This Good About Myself in over 20 Years! - Lexington, KY

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Much Needed Breast Reduction - Lexington, KY

Dr Gerstle is truly amazing. I searched for every plastic surgeon in Lexington and saw their online photos. Some of the photos are horrible, which made me think: if this is the job that you are most proud of to post photos online, what do the other jobs look like? After that extensive search I narrowed down to 2 doctors. I visited the first one and did not like his suggestion. Then I visited Dr Gerstle. He has the best personality, he makes you feel at ease, he takes the time to explain and draw what he will do, he does not make you feel rushed, and he has the best bed-side manners I have experienced. The pre-op visits with him easily took 1 hr as he took the time to go over everything in great detail. The other thing I like about him is the fact that he is probably the ONLY doctor in Lexington that specializes in cosmetic breast surgery instead of reconstructive, which to me was important. He is a perfectionist, and very meticulous about symmetry. I was very lop-sided and now my breasts look amazing and symmetrical and beautiful. His staff is wonderful also. One of the things I feel I was a little shocked about him was the fact the gave me his cell phone number and insisted that I call in case I had any questions after the surgery. It turned out that I had something come up on a Saturday night, I texted him, he called back and arranged to see me on Sunday, the next day. Very professional, very personable, very attentive, and quite funny also. I highly recommend him. I already have another procedure scheduled in the upcoming weeks.

Absolutely Worth It. Wish I Had Done It Sooner. Virtually Painless. Male 41 Years Old - Lexington, KY

Top notch in every way, I could not have felt more comfortable at every step. There are so many surgeons to choose from, in the end you have to decide on who you are most comfortable with and go with it. I could not be happier with my choice.

50 year old male. Lexington, KY

Dr. Gerstle and his team are second to none. From the first office consultation, through my surgery, I have been overly impressed! Friendly, professional, and is on call just for you. Perfection!!!

5 out of 5 stars MTF Breast Augmentation

Transgender Woman Who Finally Had Top Surgery...and It Was Totally Needed. Lexington, KY

Dr. Gerstle and his staff were super understanding and laid back. I always felt comfortable comingDr. Gerstle is very laid back (plus side, we understood each other's humor). I was not talked into any other procedures and I wasn't berated with intrusive transition questions. I was given the best service and explored all of my options thoroughly. Overall, if I had the chance to do it again, I would.
