Brian Vassar Heil, MD, FACS Reviews (511)

Breast Reduction

I would highly recommend Dr. Heil for his knowledge and expertise. He demonstrates concern for any questions and listens. He gives sufficient amount of time during appointments. Excellent staff and services.

Hair Transplant

Doctor and staff were friendly and put me at ease.

Tummy Tuck

The staff treated me like family! Patient care is something this staff takes very seriously.

Hair Restoration

very professional staff, proper covid protocols

Hair Transplant

All of the staff were very personable and pleasant to be around at all times. They made sure I was comfortable every step of the way. I was so relaxed and distracted just talking and joking around with them that I didn't even realize when they were implanting the grafts -- I thought they were still just prepping me and suddenly we're done with the whole thing. You wouldn't think surgery and taking 1500 chunks out of your head would be such a relaxing good time but it really was. Also -- the cost of the procedure was completely fair and they didn't try to pressure me into buying more grafts or any products. The day of the surgery they lightly suggested a product that would help speed up recovery/growth but never brought it up again at follow up appointments. Obviously it's a business but they don't try to sway any of your decisions in their financial favor and that is something I highly value.

Breast Reduction

I was scheduled in a time frame I needed. The facility is a class act. The staff were all great. The best thing was the accommodations of my needs.

Hair Transplant

Dr. Heil and his team are the best. My expectations have been exceeded throughout the process to date with the procedure and follow-up. Office and all staff are total "pros" and very friendly. I would recommend to anyone seeking FUE hair transplant.

Breast Lift

Dr. Heil is a great surgeon with an awesome down to earth attitude! He is very patient and will answer any question or concern. I went to him for my breast lift with implants. I wish I would have done more research sooner and found him for my other surgeries! I would recommend him to anyone needing any work done! The staff are also great and very friendly!! I have absolutely no complaints! [Single best thing is...] My healing process was great and I think that was due to the fact that Dr. Heil is such a great surgeon and knows what he is doing! He gave me what I was looking for. My breasts look natural and not boxy like I’ve seen some with breast lift. Any time I had a question there was always someone there to help answer it!

Eyelid Surgery

Results are what I wanted. [Single best thing is...] Professional team.


Dr. Heil was confident he could do what I needed, staff is kind, facility was very clean and a nice environment when I went in for my surgery.

Breast Lift

First, during the consultation, I felt very comfortable and not judged by those I interreacted with, from the front desk onward. The consultation was very informative and I never felt embarrassed by it or any question I had to ask. The surgery was well explained, as were any issues that may result. I had great communication with the doctor and staff. The day of surgery was seamless. Though prepared for any matters that could arise, from pain, discomfort even mobility and diet, I experienced none of it. I was up and about, eating normal foods the next day, but it was great that they got one ready for anything. Follow up appointments and phone calls have been smooth and easy. This was such a positive experience for me that many of my friends are interested in procedures as well. [Single best thing is...] The staff and doctors, who treated me excellently!! From consult to pre-op to post....just great with communication and understanding!!

Body Lift

Everything is good. I like the result, very good experience.

Breast Augmentation

I don’t really like my results. I don’t have the upper fullness that I wanted & I feel that my left is noticeably bigger than my right. I feel that my implants sit too low & are too droopy.

Eyelid Surgery

Love the personal care from every staff member in the process. Attribute that to Dr. Heil's high standards and professionalism. Also, the cleanliness of the surgical areas is superb.


Every single staff member was friendly and helpful from the front office staff, nurses, PA’s and Dr. Heil. Dr. Heil and the PAs always took their time with me and never made me feel rushed. Dr. Heil even waived my consult fee when Zack suggested I discuss what procedure to pursue since I had a bad experience with liposuction in the past with another doctor.

Breast Augmentation

I had an existing implant rupture, and I was able to get in for surgery within 2 weeks. The staff at the surgery center were very friendly. Overall I had a great experience and will look to have other procedures here!


Very professional, very pleased with results. Staff was wonderful. Good experience.

Tummy Tuck

Everyone was very attentive the day of my surgery. I and my husband were kept informed as to what was happening throughout the entire process. I am extremely pleased with the results.

Breast Reduction

Staff were welcoming and friendly. Staff were knowledgeable and experienced in the procedure. Staff were thorough and provided all the information I needed at the time.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Heil and his team are phenomenal. They take their job and each client serious. They are detailed, and make you feel like you are the one and only client they see. Their communication and "bed side manners" are professional and compassionate. All of my experiences have been special and I look forward to sharing them with others. My results are great! I appreciated the high standards of Dr. Heil and his team.
