5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Mommy Makeover - Minneapolis, MN

Dr. Ness and his assistant Michaela were amazing at my consultation. I am a curvy woman and was a little hesitant about the whole thing because of this. They made me feel more than comfortable about everything and being in the buff in front of strangers. I highly recommend them. It has been a month after surgery. Dr. Ness's work is amazing. It all looks beautiful. Everyone was great the day of surgery and have been ever since. I would go with no other surgeon.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

One Happy Customer - Plymouth, MN

I researched best plastic surgeons in Minneapolis and went from there. We are happy customers and HIGHLY suggest Dr. John A. Ness. I have always been insecure with the size of my breasts. When it made sense financially, we decided to take the next step. I asked friends for recommendations and started my online research. I found a good site to aid me in picking the perfect plastic surgeon. I came across Dr. Ness and was impressed with his credentials. After viewing the before and after photos we knew we wanted to take the next step and schedule our consutation. Dr. ness and the staff were all friendly and very professional. We knew immediatally we wanted to go with him and scheduled our surgery date. I am almost 1 week post surgery and am very happy with the results. Dr. Ness' work is beautiful. I cannot wait to see my final results as I finish healing.

5 out of 5 stars Body Lift

Male Body Lift and Gynocomastia Reduction - Minneapolis, MN

Dr. Ness is fantastic. He is forthright and incredibly detail-oriented. I felt completely comfortable asking him questions prior to my procedure, and he offered incredible insight into what I would be experiencing post-surgery. Michaela, Dr. Ness' Patient Coordinator, was amazing. She was available, day or night, for any questions or concerns I had and made an uncomfortable and uncertain time in my life far more manageable.

1 week post-op update

I actually had a consult with another really great doctor when I was searching for my abdominoplasty and rhinoplasty. That doctor was very honest and said she wasn't comfortable doing the nose and recommended Dr. Ness. I was extremely happy with my before, during and after care when I had my abdominoplasty and rhinoplasty with Dr. Ness and his awesome staff. He and his staff are truely wonderful! I can't say enough about them!

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Referred by Another Doctor - Plymouth, MN

I was referred to Dr. Ness by another doctor who felt he would not be able to give me the results I was hoping for. After consulting with other surgeons I am SO happy I ended up choosing Dr. Ness for my abdominoplasty. I am very happy with my results. Dr. Ness and his entire staff have shown nothing less than excellence with their attentiveness and professionalism throughout this entire process.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck with Hip Liposuction - Plymouth, MN

My first experience with Dr. Ness and his PC Michaela was in November 2012 and I was scheduled in January 2013 for surgery. I had to cancel because I changed jobs. I had researched Dr. Ness and his private practice was opened around 2011 but he had been practicing and well respected in his field for quite some time. When we had our consultation we just clicked. When he marked me for my surgery I admired his artistry. Pro's He requires no consultation fee which I think is great. If you live more in Central MN vs. Twin Cities You can have all of your consults/follow-up visits at St Cloud office The Surgery Center at West Health Michaela makes the experience. You can text her anytime day or night with questions. She responds back quickly. When you have your drain she checks in with you every day. She made herself available at 7 pm just to remove my drain after I got back from my CA trip. Follow ups are easy and a breeze Your post op compression garment and the next step garment are included in the price. Only thing you pay for afterward is your oleeva scar shape $100 Cons If your from out of town, you need to stay overnight in a hotel to have your 24 hour follow up. It's definitely not as comfortable but the Residence Inn close by has a kitchen and a little more like home. Dr. Ness wasn't there after surgery just the west health staff. Michaela checked in there after. You don't get a lot of time with him but he is good at the important part, surgery and a good result.

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

My Mommy Makeover Tummy Tuck & Breast Augmentation! - Plymouth, MN

After having 3 children, I decided it was time!!! I am 27, in shape but my boobs are smaller than I started and my skin on my abdomen gets saggier the skinnier I am. I am 6 weeks post op. I went with 400 silicone HP. The recovery was miserable for me. As soon as I stopped taking pain meds(next day cuz I didn't hurt!) I'd wake up at night and my whole body would shake with tremors. I developed...

I am beyond ecstatic with results from both of my procedures and so grateful to have found him. I highly recommend him, you will not be disappointed!

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Disappointed and Depressed at 6 Weeks Post Op - Minneapolis, MN

Even though I had a difficult experience I would have to rate the above areas as top notch in every way. The medical assistant even made a house call 45 miles mile away from the office to help me with recovery, you don't get that from anybody else in today's world!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

Breast Lift and Implants After 6 Children - Minneapolis, MN

Dr. Ness and his staff were amazing. They answered all of my questions and gave me options. I highly recommend Ness Plastic Surgery.
