Thank you for taking the chance on me, considering my medical history! For the first time in a very long time, I feel pretty again! Thank you!! Terri
I just wanted to write you to let you know what a wonderful job you did on me! I feel like you really listened and did what I asked! I’m very pleased and just wanted you to get the praise for it. I am a hairdresser and you will be highly recommended by me to all! Thanks again!
I would like to take the time to say “thank-you!” I am now 6 months out of surgery and could not be happier! Many things changed, not just my appearance! I am happier in my clothes and out of them! (Ha! Ha!) So thank you for being a fantastic doctor and giving me my self-confidence back, and making me look on the outside how I felt on the inside!
I cannot find adequate words to express my heart-felt appreciation I feel toward you for what you’ve done for me! You are my hero!
I wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with the outcome of my surgery! I had been thinking about having surgery for a very long time and had mixed emotions. You did a fantastic job!! I could never thank you enough!!
After my right breast encapsulated, the pain and discomfort were awful, but I also grew increasingly more self-conscious about the appearance of my breasts which overflowed into the way I saw myself as a woman! This may sound shallow to some, but it was paramount to me. I feel any type of elective plastic surgery must be a personal choice, not something to do to gain approval from anyone else. Like self-esteem, cosmetic surgery should be a gift one should give to oneself.
The referral I received from a friend was an excellent step in the right direction, but I had to make sure I was comfortable with Dr. Bauer. My first impression of Arkansas Plastic Surgery was totally positive! The office staff members were all professional, very warm and kind, and helped schedule an appointment that worked into my tight schedule. Upon meeting Dr. Bauer, I knew I had found the right plastic surgeon for me. He spent a generous amount of time talking with me about my situation, my medical history, and what goals I was trying to achieve by having surgery. He explained everything after examining me, including his vision of how he would perform my surgery, the techniques he would use, and how he saw the outcome, if I chose to proceed. I left my consultation feeling great, because I had finally taken the first step to solving a problem that had bothered me for years. I was confident that I had found a surgeon who not only had outstanding credentials, but one with whom I was completely comfortable and trusted.
Now, I am delighted with the way I feel mentally, physically and emotionally, and I love the way I look, both in and out of clothes! This surgery choice for me was truly life changing! And, I will add this… my husband’s reaction upon seeing my breasts after surgery was, “You look gorgeous, like you were born with perfect breasts! Dr. Bauer is a genius!” For me, his words only confirmed what I already knew and see every time I look in the mirror!
