28 Years Old and Desperately Needed a Breast Aug =) - Saint Louis, MO

Dr. Prada is an AMAZING surgeon!!!! My breast augmentation could not be any more perfect!!! I'm 28 years old, no children, and started with a 32A bra size. I explained that I would like around a D cup, he recommended a mid profile silicone implant under the muscle for the most natural look and that the incision would be best under the breast. I'm so happy that he recommended those things, I...

After a Few Months, Very Happy With My Decision - Saint Louis, MO

I was referred to Dr Prada by several friends, the office environment was clean and modern which meant a lot to me because if I was going to do an elective aesthetic procedure I also wanted my doctor to put emphasis on the aesthetics of his work environment - I think this shows attention to detail and good taste both in the OR and outside of it. He was thorough, direct, attentive, and overall cared about me and my health.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

49 Yrs, Gastric Bypass Lost130 Lbs, Triple Procedure: Abdominoplasty, Thigh & Breast Lifts - MO

I absolutely love Dr. Prada. Very professional, knows his stuff. Even suggested not doing my thigh lift once he saw how much difference the tummy tuck would have on my thigh issue. Recommended use the savings to add breast augmentation since I'll lose so much skin there I would be happier adding more volume since once the excess skin was gone I would likely end up very small and not really in proportion. So when I do my face & neck lift in March we'll just use my thigh lift credit and do that. He could have easily just done the thighs and charged me. He is very much a patient advocate and really wants the best outcome for his patients. Thanks Dr. Prada, so glad I chose your practice.

31 Years Old, 4 Children and a Better Body Now Than Ever!!!!! Chesterfield, MO

Dr.Prada was friendly and outgoing from the first minute we met. He never tried to "sell" me a procedure he didn't think I needed. He was very upfront with what he needed to do to achieve my goal and provided me with realistic expectations. He was funny and made being practically nude in front of him comfortable rather than awkward. His bedside manner is amazing and you can tell that he actually cares about you as a patient, he cares how you feel about yourself afterwards and he wants to make sure you are happy and that shows in his work. He is amazing.

23 Year Old Breast Augmentation - No Kids A Cup to D Cup

Dr. Prada was always on time and I never found myself waiting more than a minute or two in the room. His staff are all very nice and knowledgeable. I would recommend Dr. Prada to any of my friends or family who want cosmetic surgery.

36yo, 1 Child - St Louis, MO

Very happy with everything. I was concerned about going too big, and doc listened. He shared his opinion, but respected and honored mine. He also informed me of the differences between saline/silicone & his opinion, but I chose what I felt was best for me. Very personable. Easy procedure. Great office & staff!

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

32 Years Old Two Kids 4 Year Old Big Boy and Tiny Girl Second Baby - Chesterfield, MO

My doctor was very smart and I felt that he knew exactly what I wanted. Dr. Prada listened to my concerns and assured me they would be fixed with his help. I trusted him from the moment I met him and was adamant that he would be my surgeon. He has that presence that a woman would say YES I need you to do this surgery. He also was so good at following up with me after the surgery nearly daily and if I needed him to look at something I was concerned with he would meet me at the office to answer my question. Great guy and Great Doc. I recommend him to any body who needs something done, no matter what the procedure. IF you have any questions please call me or send me a message.

Breast Augmentation - St Louis, MO

Dr. Prada was wonderful. He took his time during the consultation. I did not feel pressured or rushed during any visit. This was my first surgery ever and Dr. Prada put my mind at ease. I am very comfortable with Dr. Prada and his entire staff. I definitely recommend Dr. Prada and St. Louis Cosmetic Surgery for any procedure that you are interested in having done.

Introducing the Mommy Makeover Diaries

While being a mother is one of the greatest joys in life, it is also a hard job—one that takes its toll physically, and mentally. Often mothers find it difficult to put themselves first, preferring instead to spend time, money and energy on their children, or significant others, or their careers. But the old saying “if Mama ain’t happy ain’t nobody happy” has real truth to it, and many women are beginning to find that taking care of their own needs and having a positive self-image...
