5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction
My experience with Dr. Johnson was absolutely amazing. I found her by chance after having issues with getting scheduled with a couple of other surgeons for a bilateral mastectomy with nipple grafts. I only saw a few pictures of her work but I was pleased with what I saw and immediately scheduled a consultation. I knew from the moment I met with her that she was the surgeon for me--she had...
5 out of 5 stars FTM Chest Masculinization Surgery
Dr Melissa Johnson is a warm and caring individual. She is friendly and is always smiling. She was reassuring with any and all concerns I had both during the consultation appointment and the day of surgery. Her staff carries her example well - all warm, friendly and made me feel that they were excited to be on my journey with me to have the 'top surgery' as part of my gender reassignment process.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
I am amazed how immediately my neck and numb hands went away immediately after surgery! Back pain gone too. Would do it again in a heart beat. My insurance covered the cost. I came home hours after surgery and the next morning stopped pain meds and switched to Tylenol. I took pain meds st night for 2 more nights then nothing. There really wasn't a lot of pain just tired all the time for the...
Hello everyone. I have finally made the decision to do the surgery. It is scheduled for Nov. 22, 2016. I am 56 years old and large breasts on my 120 small frame have been a lifetime of pain. I am a 34DDD however I don't think that is right as I think I am larger but just haven't re-measured and I am tired of spending a fortune on bras that don't fit! I have 2 herniated discs in my neck...
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
I could not be happier. I am 8 weeks post op and feel like a new women. I dropped two sizes and look completely different. I amaze myself every day when getting dressed. I still can't believe it's my belly. My incision was done beautifully. And I now have a perfect belly button. 4.5 lbs of excess skin was removed, which took away all stretch marks and scars from previous surgerys. 5...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
Dr. Johnson is a very caring, thorough, and amazing plastic surgeon in my honest opinion. I went in for breast reduction not sure if the size I wanted was too big or too small and she wasn't afraid to tell me what she thought was best for me medically. She has a demeanor that puts you at ease immediately. No matter when I called after my surgery she was available to see me - even if just to put my mind at ease. I couldn't be happier. I would highly recommend her!
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
Dr. Johnson is an amazing surgeon. She was very honest with me about what sizing she thought would look best and openly told me about her concerns if I wanted to go bigger than suggested. Her office staff is amazing. It was a great experience.
4 out of 5 stars Restylane
Dr Melissa Johnson was initially a very friendly and outgoing individual which i like ,she listen to my needs and concerns but the fact about the procedure did not go well my left eye has been constantly swollen going on two months and I saw her PA , she gave me antibiotics for sweeling.
Nice and pleasant to meet with. Office personal has been helpful answering questions. I have my TT on Dec 9th and will update after.
I wanted to thank Dr. Melissa Johnson for performing my breast augmentation. This was the first of my gender confirmation surgeries and I say without reservation that Dr. Johnson is one of the most thoughtful physicians I have had the pleasure to know. She carefully listened to my concerns and helped me to choose a procedure which confirmed my femininity and has done more for my transition...
