5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

AquaShape - Outer Thighs - Charlotte, NC

Based on my experience, Dr. Ditesheim is an expert with the Aqua Shape procedure. He is professional and informative. He will explain what to expect during and after surgery and answer any additional questions you may have. In addition, he will confirm with you what you expect to be done to ensure that he knows exactly what YOU want and what the expectations are. I highly recommend Dr. D. and would trust him again when I decide to schedule Aqua Shape for my inner thighs!

Best Doctor Ever!

I went to Dr. Ditesheim because I was looking for a surgeon close to my home and to give me great results as well. The second you walk into the office, the staff greet you and they're all so friendly and make you feel like your really going to be taken care of. Meeting with Dr. Ditesheim was a great thing as well. He's very professional and thorough about his practice and explains how he's...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Life changing and Amazing Experience

I got the full tummy tuck almost 2 months ago. Dr Ditesheim and his staff were amazing. The results came out just like Dr Ditesheim promised, or even better that what I was expecting. The surgery was as easy as possible, the recovery was longer that what I thought, but nothing that I could not handle. I am that person that literally is afraid of flu shots or anything else, but because I...

I Have CURVES Again!

Dr. Ditesheim is so professional! He takes time to explain the procedure and what you can expect during and after the procedure. The staff at Ditesheim Cosmetic Surgery are so kind and thoughtful. They went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable in every way.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

When is "Too Old" to Have a Breast Reduction--not 56!! - Ballantyne, NC

I was a little apprehensive at first having a male doctor. It had been years since I had a male doctor for anything--let alone something so personal as a breast reduction. Within minutes of meeting him and discussing my expectations and needs, I was at complete ease. He never once made me feel I was taking too much of his time. He patiently answered questions and also made sure I completely understood what the procedure would entail. The entire staff was so welcoming and made me feel as if I was their only priority. I would highly recommend Dr. Ditesheim. I hope that those I have recommended him to will make the call that will change their lives for the better.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Fat Transfer

Location, Location, Location..Fat Grafting Surgery... Moving the Fat from the Belly to the Breast

When, Dr.Ditesheim, asked "now where would you like me to take the fat so I can move it to your breast? I thought, surely, this doctor has a sense of humor. Really you are telling me you can take the fat from my belly and transfer it to my breast. And he did and it took maybe a couple hours from start to finish. I wasn't put under, the nurses were awesome and I must say, very entertaining. The fact is that I was more uncomfortable when I had vampire facial compared to this fat grafting procedure. You must, you must at least talk to this doctor before you have any procedure done...tell him I sent you..You will be glad you did.

46 Year Old Mother of Two - Charlotte, NC

Dr. Ditesheim was wonderful. Spoke to me about all of my options and talked with me throughout the entire procedure. Very calming.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Over 50 and Loving my Belly - Charlotte, NC

Dr. Ditesheim is professional and thorough, before, during and after the procedure. His staff are equally professional and caring. The safety protocol is outstanding. The night nurse was excellent and the day nurse are gentle.

5 out of 5 stars Mini Tummy Tuck

Great experience and results!!

Dr. Ditsheim did an amazing job on a mini tummy tuck! He was very caring and informative throughout the process. His team was also helpful and made me feel comfortable from start to finish. I am so happy with the results and love showing off by bikini ready body.

5 out of 5 stars Fat Transfer

So Happy I Found the Right Doctor for Full Facial Fat Transfer - Charlotte, NC

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Ditesheim and his staff. I have never had a doctor who was so compassionate and caring, and who always has ample time for me. During my rough recovery I offered some suggestions as to how to better prepare patients in case they do not follow a typical recovery path and rather than defensiveness, as might be expected from a surgeon, there was gratitude for my input and thoughtful consideration of my ideas. This of course, would be merely nice, without his demonstration of extreme skill and art in restructuring of my face and reshaping of my body with Aquashape. His staff is warm, supportive and always a pleasure to see. I am so thankful that I chose them!

Size Matters: How Breast Implants Are Customized to Your Physique

Cosmetic surgery is a personal thing. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to any procedure, and rightfully so—surgeons who don’t take the unique characteristics of their patients into account produce the kind of results that end up on bad reality TV shows and plastic-surgery-gone-wrong websites. A breast augmentation that creates the head-turning, quality outcome that women seek can only be achieved with careful measurement and personalization of their procedure....

6 Reasons Water-Assisted Liposuction Is Better

Part of being human means that we all get to deal with pockets of stubborn fat on our bodies at one time or another. While natural weight loss is best, there comes a point where diet and exercise just won't cut it. Liposuction can be a great alternative to solving our stubborn fat woes, but traditional liposuction has its limitations for how effective it can be. If you're interested in tightening up that body and are looking for a new liposuction alternative that is safe, gentle and...

Why Breast Augmentation Is Never “One Size Fits All”

Getting breast implants is an exciting decision that can be a big boost to your self-confidence. You probably have an idea already of the perfect cup size you’d like to be. But hold up a second – knowing how you want to look is great, but before you go breaking the bank buying new lingerie, you’d better be sure you know what kind of results to expect.
