5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

1 year post op-****Pics******

I am getting a mommy make over! I had my consultation and scheduled my surgery for October 29th! Yea I am 39 years old. I have 4 kids 20, 10, 8, 7. I am so excited to get my mommy make over! I have to wait until my husband can come in town!!! He got transferred. I can't wait to get rid of my stomach I feel so unattractive. And get a breast lift and augmentation! I breast fed all my kids...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift

20yo Dreams of Perky- Bluffton, SC

He's a great surgeon and he is a perfectionist. He really worked with me to insure I the results wanted and unlike most surgeons, he even put my nipple jewelry back in for me which is HUGE since most doctors abhor piercings. Although he didn't see me directly after surgery, he called me to check in and see how I was doing. However, I am not so impressed with his PA. I feel like whenever I meet with her she wants to dismiss what I'm saying and I feel talked down to by her. However, she finally listened and prescribed me something to help with the nerve hypersensitivity I was experiencing after a second appointment.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck and Arm Lift- Doing well. Bluffton, SC

I found him through my PCM at the Naval Hospital. She said he was one of the best around. I was very impressed with his staff and the cleanliness of his office.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Thankful for my New Opinion on Plastic Surgery...and the New Tummy - Bluffton, SC

Why 5 Stars...because 6 stars wasn't an option (lol) . Seriously, he gets 5 stars because he has truly earned them. He is very skilled in his profession. I am 2 weeks post op and I am very pleased with the care he has given me in all my post op visits. His staff deserves a 5 star rating also. They are so kind and all of them are very good at their job. You will not be disappointed with your experience at Dr. Weniger's office. Oh and by the way...the wait time rating....even if I had to wait...Good things are worth waiting for! I only wanted to go through with surgery if it could be fixed the right way the first time....so I started my research. I found Dr. Frederick Weniger here in SC. I was so pleased from the moment I stepped into his office. His staff is wonderful and the level of professionalism they demonstrate sets the bar high for any other doctors office in the area. Dr. Weniger is fantastic. His bedside manner is great. He acknowledged all my concerns and did a great job explaining the things that needed to be addressed. He was so detailed in my consultation ... I knew I was in super good hands.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation-Saline - Bluffton, SC

Dr. Weniger is very professional and goes in great detail to make sure that the patient understands everything about the surgery. Dr. Weniger also has a great bedside manner. Dr. Weniger is very straight forward and will tell you exactly how the experience will be, which is a great thing because this is "real" surgery.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

BREAST AUGMENTATION-Best Thing I Could Have Done For Myself - Hilton Head, SC

Dr Weniger is so professional and the best! He made me feel so comfortable and his staff is so efficient. Dr Weniger's experience showed through with my surgery. He truly studied my body shape, size and my age and gave my a very natural look. He was right on the mark. I could not be happier. He did an excellent job. I look and feel terrific. I could not evaluate the "after care follow-up" yet but only expect the same professional service I have experienced in the last few days. I would highly recommend him to others. RL

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Botox - Bluffton, SC

Best Plastic Surgeon around!! HIGHLY Recommended! Beautiful Office and Amazing Office staff. Especially Dr. Weniger's assistants (Jessica and Sarah).

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

They Are Exactly What I Wanted! - Bluffton, SC

Last December, the week before Christmas, I had a Breast Augmentation procedure with Dr. Weniger. I just thought he was the best around and it was perfect from start to finish. He made me feel extremely comfortable and I knew I was in good hands. The procedure went perfectly. I couldn't have asked for a better doctor or staff. Everybody was amazing and I love the results. They are exactly what I wanted. I let him decide what to do and he knew exactly what he was doing. I have already recommended him to others. I've been to a couple of other doctors and I was not comfortable with them at all. Dr. Weniger makes you laugh because he has a good sense of humor.

5 out of 5 stars Neck Lift

Highly recommended! An extremely competent surgeon.

Fantastic! From initial consulatation with Dr Weniger and his assistant, Jessica, to now 2 weeks post op, this has been an amazing experience. Professional, reassuring yet with an ability to put me at ease with some lighthearted humour, Dr Weniger and his staff have demonstrated a level of competency I have not experienced before. My results so far are excellent (upper blepharasty and neck...

5 out of 5 stars Sientra Breast Implants

5'4, approx. 130 Lbs, 415 Cc textured round Sientra "gummy bear" implants, - Bluffton, SC

I am glad I chose Dr. Weniger as my surgeon. I originally had a second consultation with another surgeon booked, because I've seen a lot of people say to make sure you choose the best surgeon for you; I canceled that one, because I was very satisfied with my consultation with him and paid the deposit to save a surgery date the same day of my consultation. I just knew it wouldn't get any better elsewhere. He absolutely heard me out and took into consideration everything that I wanted. I've read that a lot of surgeons talk their patients into sizes they don't really want, and they end up disappointed. That was definitely not the case for me. I did go a little bigger than I had originally planned because his assistant Jessica (who's drop dead gorgeous...I know that's not of any relevance here, but I had to mention it, lol) told me that 90% of women regret not having went bigger. Jessica has been very sweet and comforting from day one! I told the doctor about my concern with the "boob greed", and he chose the biggest size of implant he could use without making my breasts look fake. Looking at them now, 3.5 weeks post op, I think that they are the PERFECT size for me and I am very happy I chose to go bigger. I had the loveliest nurse on my day of surgery! She was the sweetest thing and made be feel so at ease. Very thankful for her!! I forgot her name, because a lot of things from that day are like a blur in hindsight, but I think it started with a J. (I will find out her name and then simply edit my review). As of right now, I can't stop looking at my breasts and be thankful that I chose Dr. Weniger. Even my incisions look so good; you can see the work of precision! I think it's safe to say that he is an outstanding plastic surgeon who is highly skilled. He has been nothing but nice and reassuring throughout the whole process. A special shout out goes to the patient coordinator Michelle! I have messaged her more than once on a weekend, and she always replies within minutes! Very professional and sweet, and I appreciate her a lot. The girls at the front desk are very friendly every time I go there. I am convinced that I have picked the perfect location, staff, surgeon, AND breasts! Lol. 5 stars across the board for Dr. Weniger and his staff!
