I can not say enough good, I don't have words to describe how blessed I have been to be under the care of Dr Dennis Hammond, Partners in Plastic Surgeons in Grand Rapids MI. From the moment you call for your consult appt to your last post-op, to the time you are being prepped for surgery, surgery and recovery, you will be treated with the utmost consideration, respect and kindness! Joanne and Joanie are amongst the most sainted, gifted nurses I have ever encountered, they are some of the nurses who will be taking care of you for surgery! I can't name all the compassionate thoughtful nurses names in the office as I may be remiss in forgetting their names, but his staff Ct be compared to any other!! And believe me when I say that over this 5yr journey of having a Double mastectomy, to being in the hands of another plastic surgeon who I have no Words to describe the nightmare it was , to being directed and finding the gifted Dr Hammond, has been one of the greatest gifts I cold have been blessed with! I recently Dr Hammond perform Thigh lift on this almost 60 yr old body. The results I have received are nothing short of being miraculous!! I can not say enough about how gifted and tremendous the results will be! Beyond my expectations. Not enough gold stars available to rate! So much so that I will be trusting him with my future surgeries needed. Face lift next on the agenda!

It has been a year and a half since my breast reduction. I had consultations with several doctors before I chose Dr. Hammond as my surgeon. While Dr. Hammond is famous for his SPAIR technique, he determined that another method would be best for me. It was not technique even mentioned by the other surgeons. I am as thrilled with my reduction today as I was immediately after surgery. Before...

Stop looking! Book an appointment here! Dr Dennis Hammond is pretty much a mastermind. If you look him up he has a long history of plastic surgery experienced and even educates others. He is the innovator for so many things. He has helped to actually develop the implants themselves and even calculating exactly how they are placed. You might THINK you know just what you need. but you have to trust him. Because he does know better based on his experience and calculations. He is very focused and driven and many say he is perfectionistic at what he does. There is no need to worry with him because he's got it all covered. He is honest and doesn't fluff anything. I'm so happy he was able to help me. He fixed my severe Diastasis recti (ab separation), fixed the hernia, full TT and did the boobs too. I was also under the impression that he is innovative with more effective meds for after surgery as well. Consult with him if you are looking. He is professional and amazing! His support staff was prompt to answer the phones always. I never felt like a bother. And they always followed through quickly and happily answered all of my questions. Joann, the nurse is amazing! She is smart and thorough and empathetic, down to earth and just plain made for her job. She completely put my mind at ease during surgery. Julie was awesome too. The anesthesiologist was friendly and easy to talk and understand. Many other places I looked were lacking in support staff but had great doctors. Please choose on the whole package. The support staff has to be able to get to you ASAP or you will frustrated. For all my past surgeries I have gotten very sick for a whole week after anesthesia but their team put a plan together and amazingly I had NO sickness at all. Amazing! They are skilled! The nurse even called me the. Ext day to see what questions I had and how I was doing. I had two other local consults and neither compared in the service category, many didn't follow through quickly, misquoted or were just to dmfar behind to help. Dr Hammonds office is the place to go. They are competitively priced. Make an appointment and see him if you need a good surgeon! He is the best of the best. PS I'm only 2 days out but the results are fab! PSS DO NOT put lotion on on the pre-op day of the marking- my bad! Thank you Dr Hammond and staff!

Over all, from first appt to my post op appt, I would give Dr Hammond a 1000% rating! Forthright Honest Genuine, kind hearted compassionate, concerned about the whole person not just what the end physical results will be. He is an artist! Considerate of his staff! Not arrogant humble and kind and respectful to his staff. Concerned about their well being. His go to person, who was his initial surgical nurse has been with him from the onset of his practice. His Nurses are of the utmost kindness and respect him. I have been to consults where the nursing staff talked about the patients and the Dr within earshot of me. Not professional at all. Not so with Dr Hammonds staff. They treat you from the start with respect, taking into consideration all you have been gone thru physically as well as the emotional roller costal ride. He is one of the top five reconstructive surgeons in the US! Travels lecturing and teaching all over the world! Surgeons use techniques that he has developed. And he is practically in my backyard. What a blessing he has been in my life! I can not say enough about his surgical and office staff as well. There was a 1hr delay in the surgery schedule, his assistant stayed with me and kept me company. He sent his recovery staff home as they had last minute Christmas details to attend to (my surgery was on Dec 22nd) and waited with me while I recovered, until I was ready to leave! If you are looking for a top rated, highly recommended surgeon, (3 different Dr's and colleagues recommended him to me, one from Maryland) then I suggest you search Dr Dennis Hammond out!
Very strong in giving you what you desire. Honest and Straight forward, no nonsense. Office staff was exceptional in compassion. Go armed with questions, confidence and time! I loved that Dr. Hammond was insistent on asking ME questions to find out what I needed to be whole.

Dr. Hammond uses the SPAIR technique. He created this technique himself, and it is a way of making the breast incisions have the least amount of scarring. He did an excellent job and am very happy with the end result. See my photos to see how the incisions differ from other breast reductions done by other surgeons. I recommend Dr. Hammond to anyone thinking of having breast surgery. Even if you don't live near Grand Rapids, it might be worth traveling here to have him as your surgeon. My scars (at six weeks post-op) are thin and less noticeable because of his technique. I am so happy with my results!

When it comes to having a surgery, and it is an out of pocket expense, you want to pick the best surgeon. I decided to ask a friend of the family that is a doctor, who would you trust yourself with if you were to have a breast reduction with lift, full abdominoplasty and liposuction? The answer: Dr. Hammond. I made no effort to see anyone else. If this is who a doctor, I trust would see then...
