5 out of 5 stars Scars Treatment

Dr Pecunia went above and beyond for me

About a week ago, on a Saturday evening, I had an unfortunate accident and needed stitches on my forehead. Being that it was Saturday night, I panicked wondering who would be doing my stitches which would possibly result in a terrible scar. Luckily a friend of mine contacted Dr. Pecunia and asked what he suggested I do. He immediately offered to meet me at the hospital and perform any...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Worth every penny!!

My experience was absolutely phenomenal! Dr. Pecunia relieved all of my presurgery anxieties along with all of his sweet and caring staff. After 4 pregnancies and weight loss, a tummy tuck was much needed. I could not be more pleased with my surgical outcome which left very minimal scarring and restored the flat belly I hadn't seen since my 20's. Dr. Pecunia and his nurses were great during...

Amazing experience from consult to post op!!!

I feel the need to brag on Dr. Pecunia not just because of my amazing results but because of the care and expertise I received to produce those results! From consultation to post operative care I received top notch service.. He and his staff answer any and all questions and as well as really listen to your concerns.

5 out of 5 stars Brow Lift

Dr. Pecunia is an Experienced, Skilled, Competent, Professional, Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Pecunia has performed two procedures on my face. In 2010, he corrected droopy upper and lower eyelids. Two weeks ago (March 7), he did a brow lift. Before and after surgery, he and his staff are available to answer questions and address any concerns. Two days after the brow lift, before returning home (I live 200 miles NE of Hattiesburg), I dropped into the office without an...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

I had an amazing experience

He did my breast implants ... couldn't be more satisfied. He's a very good Dr. I love how he spends time with you and talks to you about the procedure, he is very professional and good at what he does. In about 2 weeks he will be doing my lip implants and some lypo and I couldn't be more happy knowing I'm in good hands with Dr. Pecunia

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction Revision

I would recommend Dr Pecunia to anyone

I had breast cancer about 25 years ago. I had mastectomy with reconstruction. Recently one of my implants ruptured. Dr Pecunia removed the implant and replaced it with a new one. I am happy with Dr Pecunia and the work he was able to do. I am the type of person that wants a doctor that tells me what I can expect. Dr Pecunia did that. I had a doctor tell me one time that doctors were like...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

The best doctor!

At 31, after having 2 children, and never being happy with the look and size of my breasts, I decided to have breast augmentation done. 2016 was the year! I talked with everyone I knew had been through the procedure already, and Dr. Pecunia's name kept coming up. Everyone I spoke with declared that he was the best plastic surgeon I could ask for. After meeting with him, "trying on" the...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck in a Month.. What Do I Need to Know? -Hattiesburg, MS

Meeting Dr. Pecunia had changed my life! After losing over 100 lbs through diet & exercise I still had terrible self esteem due to my large stomach! From the consultation to the post op visits he was absolutely amazing!! The night of my surgery he called and checked to make sure we made it home ok and have us his cell phone number if I needed him. What a great doctor!! I had no expectations of my outcome. I actually didn't think he could make my stomach as good as he did! But if I expected something I would have been let down! Not a chance he could let me down! He is an artist!!

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

I had a wonderful experience

I had a wonderful experience. Dr. Pecunia and his staff are very professional yet kind and caring. I had Juvaderm filler and had immediate results with no bruising and very little discomfort. I also had laser treatments for spider veins. The whole visit was quick and easy. I highly recommend him.
