5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

This should be the only doctor you look at!

I was so nervous when I found out I had cancer. I found Dr. Criswell and I was set at ease. And everything he told me in my time line turned out exactly what he said! He was so up beat , made you feel like you were special. I was so happy with the results! He was always there to listen to my concerns on the telephone. His bedside manner is exceptional!

So thankful I found him!

I couldn't be happier with my choice to go with Dr. Criswell. Not only were my results better than I could have ever hoped for, he took his time with me and made sure I was comfortable and had all my questions answered. The nurses and admin staff were amazing. Honestly couldn't be happier! Highly recommend Dr. Criswell.

Breast Augmentation - Charlotte, NC

Dr. Bryan Criswell listened to my every question and concern from beginning to end. I came in anxious and determined to have exactly what I envisioned. Not only did he listen, he made my vision come to life. He took the time to look at photos of what I wanted and did not want. He managed my expectations which I think is one of the most important parts of the experience. He gave me a...

5 out of 5 stars Facelift


Not only is Dr Criswell an expert and an artist in his field, he is warm, kind, and makes you feel at ease from the first moment you meet him.

Breast Cancer with Bilateral Mastectomy Surgery and Reconstruction - Charlotte, NC

Dr. Criswell is great! He had a difficult job in front of him and I am very pleased with the outcome. I had bilateral mastectomy surgery with nipple-sparing. A week after the surgery I was told that the cancer was in the skin and nipple area (of the breast that had cancer) so I had to go back to surgery to have the nipple and surrounding skin removed. I came home with a nipple and areola on...

45 Year Old, Implant Removal and Breast Lift - Charlotte, NC

Unfortunately, my left breast implant capsule ruptured. This left one breast setting higher than the other so I decided to have both implants removed and at that time get a lift. 6 months into the healing process I am happy with how some of the scars are healing but exercising patience with the scar therapy on other areas. In all I am glad I got the surgery. I cannot say enough about Dr....

Tummy Tuck, Lipo of Flanks, Breast Lift with Augmentation

I am 41 years old and I'm 5'7" and weigh 150 lbs. I have had stretch marks since I had my daughter. I have hated them for many years. After debating this for a long time I have finally taken the plunge and decided it's time to do something about it. I am a very active person. I play on a co-ed softball team that I love. I love to workout but no matter how much I work out...

Couldn't Be Happier!!! - Charlotte, NC

When I first decided that I wanted this procedure, I did some research on which surgeon I would go to. Dr. Bryan Criswell came highly recommended by other doctors and patients. After meeting with him and his staff I knew that I had definitely made the right choice. Through my entire experience from the first consultation to weeks after my surgery, I always felt like a priority to not only him...

39, 2 C-sections and in Need of Mommy Makeover - Charlotte, NC

DR. Bryan Criswell and his entire staff are consummate professionals. I had multiple procedures completed in 2014 (mommy makeover) and the results are phenomenal. I honestly went from wearing a size 12 into the operating room to a size 6 when I put on my first pair of post ops jeans 2 weeks later. Truly amazing results! I know that not everyone will have the same outcomes- but the experience...
