5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

So Happy I Did It! - Rapid City, SD

Dr. Snyder was amazing! The office staff was friendly and helpful as well. They all really prepared me for such a major surgery and my questions were answered so I didn't really have any fears or concerns that something would go wrong. Dr. Snyder did an excellent job on the surgery from what I can tell. Everything looks good, even better than what I had hoped/asked for. I would recommend anyone in this area that's considering a breast reduction to go to Dr. Snyder.

30 Wanting Some Fullness and Perk Back - Rapid City, SD

3 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation Rapid City, SD

The location and staff were welcoming and kind. They worked with me with scheduling and information. I didn't spend too much time with Dr. Snyder and she didn't give me much recommendations on sizing. I wasn't too sure how it all worked and expected my size to be bigger than what I actually got. My scarring was larger than expected. I've seen other women with nicer and neater scars. I attempted to use creams for 3 months post surgery but they stayed pretty much the same. Overall it wasn't a bad experience but I do believe I could have had better results if given more guidance from my plastic surgeon.

28 Yr Old 4 Kids - Rapid City, SD

Dr Snyder and her staff are amazing! I had so many questions and concerns but she made sure to take her time and answer all my questions. I never felt rushed and I never felt dumb asking her to explain something I didn't understand. I love my results, i got exactly what i wanted. I will recommend Dr Snyder and her entire staff to everyone!!!

560cc Silicone Round Smooth

Dr. Snyder was excellent, I explained that I was tired of looking like the Incredible Hulk in a bikini because I have broad shoulders and a barrel chest. She helped me to pick a size to suit my body style and give me the little bit of a lift that I needed.

My only regret - I didn't do it sooner

Dr. Mary Snyder is the best!! I would recommend her to any woman who needs this done. She made me feel so good about myself and made me my breasts look like a 16 year old...I am 61! Needless to say no more back and headaches from carry around those extra pounds. Thanks again Dr Mary and everyone in your office and the Black Hills Surgery Center. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

34G to (Hopefully) 34D or 34C

My consult with Dr. Snyder was wonderful. She was incredibly kind and knowledgeable, and their office had answered all of my many questions. My BR procedure is scheduled for December 12th!

28, Two C-Sections and Weight Loss.

I honestly have no idea what to expect, I am nervous! I will also be having a brachioplasty (arm reduction?) at the same time, a breast reduction in December (I'm currently a 34-G) and a thigh reduction in January to remove the loose skin. Nervous but excited and hoping to finally feel more comfortable in my own skin. I am having some major fear and anxiety about my surgery. I have barely...
