5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

43 Years Old, 2 Kids Via C-section, Much Needed Tummy Tuck!! - Westfield, NJ

I was very unhappy with how my stomach was after having 2 c-sections. I disliked seeing myself with no clothes on and didn't feel attractive. Having a tummy tuck was the best decision I made. Dr. Burnett and his staff are wonderful! He is a perfectionist when performing surgery which is why my surgery took a little longer than originally estimated. My husband was very impressed by the doc's...

Dr. Burnett is the Best and the Greatest - Westfield, NJ

I've been seeing him for a few years already and even now living in NYC, I don't mind travelling to Westfield to see him, because he is the best doctor who provides superb service to his patients. On top of being a great doctor, he is a great human being, who has his patient's best interest at heart, a rare quality these days. Dr. Burnett, it was my lucky day when I scheduled my first...

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

55 Year Old Registered Nurse and Mother of 2 Teenage Kids - Westfield, NJ

I have always exercised and ate a healthy diet. I have maintained my weight throughout my life and considered myself to be in decent shape, until menopause! No matter how much I added to my fitness routine or eliminated from my diet, I still had stubborn belly fat. So, I went for a consultation for liposuction after careful research and researching reviews. I loved Dr Burnett and his staff...

37 Years Old, Two Kids, Outdoors a Lot - Westfield, NJ

I have had blotchy skin that has changed as my hormones have changed since my 20s. Only worsened w pregnancies and age. Heard good things about the results so I have decided to try it out..... Have been on products for a few weeks and have only had one peel so far. The peel did not cause any discomfort. It was quick and painnfree. I did have min peeling that was manageable w moisturizer day...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty


Hi Real Self, Im an African American young lady. Ever since i was 12 i remembered having a big, thick nose but it didn't really bother me since it was proportionate to my face (big head and all). As i got older and lost weight, i noticed my fat nose and was very self conscious about it and would only take pictures from the side. I knew i needed surgery but grew up in a strict household and my...

5 out of 5 stars Botox

42 Years Old Four Kids - Westfield, NJ

Felt I was aging and the wrinkles were very deep on my forehead. I started seeing Dr. Burnett for Botox and Juvederm five years ago. I have been consistent and love my results. The office is comfortable and Dr. Burnett listens and is very patient with all my concerns. I can usually get an appointment within a reasonable time. The staff know my schedule is complicated and always try to fit me in.

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Super Storm Sandy "Survivor", an Experience That Accelerated the Aging Process - Westfield, NJ

Honestly, I don't recall the cost. I've been getting treatments periodically since before Oct. '11. The fact that the doctor has Care Credit available is how I've been able to do this. The significant thing is he's METICULOUS. He is also VERY nice. He did my carpal tunnel surgery too.Known him 16yrs. Since the mid-90's, I'd been trying to find a doctor I trusted to do my carpal tunnel...

Gynecomastia is a condition of over developed or enlarged breast tissue in boys or men caused by an imbalance of estrogen and testosterone. Most think of estrogen as an exclusively female hormone, but males also produce it, but just in smaller quantities. Although approximately in 25% of cases, the cause is unknown, some causes may be the result of hormonal changes, hereditary conditions, certain medical conditions,or side effects of certain drugs. It can happen at any age.Gynecomastia is a...


Many of us (most of us?), women and men, become concerned about the appearance of facial wrinkles and sagging skin as we age. It is virtually impossible to fight it off - our bodies simply become less efficient at combatting the effects of sun and aging. Our skin naturally begins to lose elasticity, creating wrinkles and pigment problems.Cosmetic science evolves as quickly as the pace of technology, and cosmetic companies grow very rich on the promises offered by new products. Still, there...


I want to bring to your attention today the importance of selecting a qualified expert for your Botox , and all injectable, treatments. As you surely are aware, today many different types of medical professionals are offering Botox and other injectables to their patients. With so many sources available that provide the same FDA approved product, it is absolutely no wonder that patients "shop around" before they decide who to see for their Botox injections.At Burnett Plastic Surgery we get...


Let’s face it. Fat is here to stay. We all have it. At times we may have too much of it. But is that always a bad thing? Diet and exercise are the keys to a healthy active life and yes it helps to control the amount of fat that we carry around but don’t we need it?? The answer is yes. We need fat for metabolic and physiologic functions in our bodies but Plastic Surgeons need it for something else… Fat is the latest “Fountain of Youth.” Fat Transfer or Fat grafting...


Most patients see a few plastic surgeons before they decide who will do their procedure, especially if the patient is interested in a surgical procedure like liposuction or a tummy tuck. One of the things new patients often say to me is “I chose you because you listened to me”, because we reviewed so many different aspects of their expectations before they made a final decision. So what I want to explain here is how we go about the process of insuring that each surgery patient...
