"Not like you think of plastic surgeons from TV--creepy or slimy or arrogant." "He was the greatest." "His staff is the best."

5 out of 5 stars Inspira Breast Implants

Female; 5'3"; 385 cc Inspira Silicone Implants; from a B to a D cup.

I am not from Salt Lake but was recommended to Dr. Petersen by 2 of my friends from Boise. I am so happy I made the choice to go with this surgeon. I wouldn't have trusted anyone else with my breasts! Dr. Petersen is a true artist and is one of the best in the field. I felt comfortable the moment I walked in when Jasmine greeted me, and during my pre-op appointment with Ali and Dr. Petersen...

Very sweet, attentive and gentle type of doctor. Took the time to explain everything. Was very detailed in how he explained things. Not pushy but informative.

5 out of 5 stars Brazilian Butt Lift

Super pleased with my results!

I had been wanting my BBL surgery for a couple of years now. After searching for doctors in NV and Utah I finally decided to narrow my options down to two surgeons. After all I decided to go with J. Dayne Peterson. I felt like he was really trying to figure out what I wanted exactly and would listen to me instead of just assuming what I wanted. He showed me be various pictures of previous...

5 out of 5 stars Thigh Lift

I had a life-changing experience

Dr Petersen and his staff is so fun and made me feel comfortable and beautiful from start to finish . I always recommend Dr Petersen because he goes above and beyond my expectations every time and is so honest yet fairly priced. I am so optimistic about my new life because of my new self-esteem! he's given me back my life by fixing things that wouldn't change by diet and exercise . Thank you...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

Couldn't be happier!!!

My experience with Dr. Petersen and his staff was above and beyond fantastic. Upon meeting he and his staff, both my husband and I were so impressed at how thorough and knowledgeable the team was. I have had two previous surgeries of similar nature and didn't even know I had options. Dr. Petersen gave me several options and we had no question that we wanted him to be the one to do my surgery...

Breast Lift with Silicone Implants and Extended Tummy Tuck with Lipo After Massive Weight Loss - Salt Lake City, UT

I consulted with 4 plastic surgeons and finally decided on a doc in a neighboring state about 5 hours drive away. I scheduled my surgery date yesterday and I am beyond excited! Just about 1 month away. I am feeling nervous and excited. I will have to take my family to SLC with me. That includes my husband and 2 kids ages 4 and 7. That makes me nervous. I will be staying in a hotel for 4...

34 Years Old and Had No Butt - Salt Lake City, UT

Where do I begin...? My plastic surgery journey started a few years back when I was in search of a Brazilian Butt Lift. I had decided to go to another surgeon at that time. Unfortunately, for me, the surgeries, experience and total financial loss turned out to be a huge disappointment to say the least. I had then decided to leave my old surgeon to try and locate another surgeon who would...

Lift Success! - Salt Lake City, UT

Dr. Petersen and his staff and NuVista were phenomenal. Dr. Petersen spent over an hour with me in my consultation to determine the correct surgery plan. That made me feel absolutely confident he was the right surgeon for me. The staff explained the process of the surgery so I knew what to expect before hand (there were no surprises). The results that I have experienced just 6 weeks post op...

Re Breast Augmentation. - Murray, UT

Even though my surgery was yesterday, and I still have a lot of swelling, I have to say Dr Preterson and his staff are amazing. I went in for a 2nd breast augmentation. They listed and gave me exactly what I was asking for. I when from 325cc saline to 550 saline. They look amazing. I will post after pictures in a few days. If you're looking for a surgeon in Utah or willing to travel like I...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

33 Years Old, 2 Kids, Umbilical Hernia Repair, Tummy Tuck and Lipo - Salt Lake City, UT

ANAZING!! Dr Peterson and his staff make you feel like they care before and after the procedure which wasn't the case with a different Dr when I had my breasts done. Super excited to see how I heal up, would recommend Nuvista plastic surgery to anyone. Dr Peterson was very thorough at the consult and post op appts

Why I Chose CoolSculpting

Non-Invasive Fat Reduction: Are we Getting Warmer, or Colder? For years my patients have asked me about fat reduction systems on the market today. Wouldn’t it be great if you could lose fat without diet and exercise and without surgical liposuction? Who wouldn’t want that? For years I have told my patients this is just too good to be true. I met with new device companies and listened to their pitches. I even looked into wraps you buy at parties and clinics. But I always...

See Yourself From a New Perspecive

We have all heard that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. As a plastic surgeon I have learned that the most important beholder is one’s self. When my clients feel comfortable in their own skin, they stand a little differently, speak a little differently, make choices a little differently. When they feel beautiful, they are beautiful—both inside and out. Sometimes we think of plastic surgery as an attempt to twist our bodies into an unnatural notion of societal expectations. I...
