5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

54 Yrs Old, 2 Kids, 100 Lb. Weight Loss. Saint Louis, MO

Dr. Gurley is wonderful. She is very professional yet warm. She explained exactly what was going to happen and how I would feel. She showed me pictures of what my recovery would be like. I am extremely happy with the results. I would definitely use Dr. Gurley again for any other plastic surgery needs (or wants).

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Excellent Decision, Not Nearly As Painful As Expected - Saint Louis, MO

Dr. Gurley is inspiring; take the time to read about her professional experience and you will quickly be humbled by the dedication and talent this woman clearly has. I had a couple other consults before selecting Dr. Gurley and all of the competing surgeons agreed that she would do an excellent job. Her office is beautiful and clean and all of her staff are friendly and confident. She did a wonderful job with my surgery from the preparation period to the recovery. She considered medical precautions that other doctors would have glazed over prior to the procedure, which eased some anxiety, and she has never blown off any of my post-op visits with a patronizing peep. I personally very much enjoyed working with Dr. Gurley and encourage anyone considering her for surgery to really consider her experience and artistic persuasions; she will impress you.

FANTASTIC Lift on Tuberous Breast!!! NO IMPLANT!!! - Saint Louis, MO

Incredible Communicator, Sculptor and Artist! Answered my annoyingly extensive questions at length, squeezed me in the schedule to accommodate me since I am from out of town. Wonderful staff, perfect eye for detail. Bright clean cheery sunlight filled office, a fantastic experience all around. Felt like a real collaboration. I felt truly heard & understood when explaining my hopes for my surgery. The surgery was tailored especially for me, with my desires front and center and further shaped & improved by Dr. Gurley's years of expertise. I felt I was in (literally) the best possible hands. I could not have dreamed for a better result or a better doctor! I was looking for someone that shared my same idea of beauty and my same regard for reshaping the human body as a serious art form, and I found her! Hallelujah!!! However, she may have created a monster- it was so easy and pleasant, I'm gonna want to do more! Hahahaaaa.

Petite 19 Year Old, Large/sagging Breasts - Chesterfield, MO

Dr. Gurley is phenomenal! From the first time I met her I knew, this was the surgeon I wanted and trusted to perform my procedure. She makes you feel so at ease about everything and really understands. I could tell that she cared about me not only as a patient, but as a person. I knew the outcome would be great but she exceeded my expectations. I think my breasts are gorgeous. I am only 6 weeks post op and feel completely healed. I cannot thank Dr. Gurley and her amazing staff enough!!

Best Gift I've Ever Given Myself - Chesterfield, MO

After careful research, and meeting with several Plastic Surgeons, I knew the moment I met Dr Gurley that she was the surgeon I felt confident in entrusting my procedure and care. As a woman and an artist, she knows how a woman's body looks best. As a skilled surgeon, she brings that vision to life. Her staff is knowledgeable, kind and caring, and very accessible to answer any questions!

When It's About More Than That Bikini (Although That's Good Too!) - Saint Louis, MO

Dr. Gurley was wonderful. I felt cared for and confident as I went forward with my procedure. She does a fantastic job seeing her work as an art form and my results are natural and beautiful. I loved seeing how excited and proud Dr. Gurley was about my procedure. I could tell that she is passionate about her work and strives for perfection. The staff was also great. They always knew my name when I walked in, offered me something to drink, and did their best to make me feel comfortable. The office is relaxing and they always have coffee : ). I highly recommend Dr. Gurley and could not be more pleased with my experience.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

"New Body, No Boobs" St Louis, MO

Dr. Gurley was extremely honest and professional. When I went into her office, I was only looking to get a breast enhancement. After talking to Dr. Gurley and understanding how different my breasts were, she informed me that she could do a mastopexy which would help make them more symmetrical. With out pressure from my doctor and the staff and lots of support and discussion, I decided to get the breast augmentation and mastopexy. I couldn't have asked for a more caring, honest, genuine, and brilliant doctor. She did an absolutely amazing job.

I Wish I Did It Sooner! Chesterfield, MO

Dr. Gurley and her staff are amazing. They made me feel comfortable and at ease from the first consultation. My breast were so large, I was really just hoping for relief from back aches, to be able to exercise and to look better in my clothes. The result was 100 times better than my expectation. Dr. Gurley is really an artist and a doctor. My breasts are now perfectly sized and beautiful. It's been about 3 months since the surgery. The scars are beginning to fade. I'm so much more comfortable and confident. Thank you Dr. Gurley!

My Only Regret is That I Waited This Long - Chesterfield, MO

She has such a matter of fact, calming way about her. Yet you can tell she strives for excellence. Just a very simple calm nature. As a nurse I am very in tuned with my body. I expressed my horrible reaction with anesthesia. She truly listened to my concerns and met them head on. No post-anesthesia reactions this time. And I could not be more pleased with my results. Even better, she seems pleased with the results. You want a doctor that appreciates her work.

36 Yr Old Professional Who Nursed Three Children - Chesterfield, MO

I am a 36 year old mother who breastfed three children for a year each. With each child my original size C breasts became more flat and essentially "deflated looking." After baby number 3 my breasts looked like a blown up balloon that had deflated terribly. I am 5'10" and about 120 so without extra body fat to "boost" my breasts I looked completely flat. Picture this: a deflated balloon with a...
