Breast Reduction

All the staff made me feel very comfortable during the entire process, from my first visit through follow-ups after. That included Dr. Maxwell who is just as sweet and down to earth as can be. I am very pleased with the results of the surgery. It is what I had hoped for--not perfection--whatever that might be--but perfect for what I wanted, which was comfort and an improved appearance. The best thing was the quality of work that Dr. Maxwell did. If I were less modest I would show them off---In all their glory.

Breast Implant Revision

I was impressed by the level of 'total care' that would be provided for the service I was inquiring about. Much thought has gone into making the patient's experience comfortable and relaxed. Dr. Maxwell is very down to earth and transparent and as a woman, I feel made for a connection that made me feel even better about making the right choice.

Scar Treatment

Dr. Maxwell made me feel comfortable even though I am uncomfortable talking about the scar. I appreciated Dr. M’s honesty in the procedure she believes will be the most beneficial to my overall appearance, not suggesting more than was necessary.

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Maxwell explained what she does in the process of the tummy tuck, what to expect. Her staff clearly explained cost.

Face Lift

Everyone, from the front desk to the nurse, to Dr. Maxwell, to Jody were wonderful in explaining things and helping me to understand things about the surgery that I was interested in. I needed to be placed on a wait list because of travel times and three days later, Jody was able to accommodate me with a cancellation. I have full trust and faith in Dr Maxwell’s team! Looking forward to my surgery.

Breast Reduction

I've been a long time customer and their service and staff is exceptional.

Breast Implant Removal

Everyone in the office was friendly. I was taken back for my appointment right on time. Jody answered any questions and when she took my pictures I was not uncomfortable at all. I was provided a robe that was so soft and it wasn't a stiff hospital gown which for some reason was so amazing. Dr. Maxwell was very professional and didn't promise anything that she couldn't back up. I was told everything that could happen and feel very ready for my operation. I know she will do an amazing job.

Tummy Tuck

The staff at Dr. Maxwell's is welcoming and amazing. Dr. Maxwell herself is kind, and easy going and has a very calming presence. There was never any pressure and all procedures were explained in great detail. Dr. Maxwell has a gift and I feel blessed that she took me as a patient and cannot recommend her enough.

Breast Implant Removal

Dr. Maxwell is very professional and knowledgeable. She did a fantastic job removing my implants and I was shown pictures of the implants and the capsules. She truly cares about her patients. I would recommend her to all of my friends and family.

Breast Implant Removal

From the time I first called and spoke to Jody I was 150% going with Dr. Maxwell before even meeting her. The staff are all amazing and give you all the info you need. And some that you didn’t even think of. Dr. Maxwell makes you feel so comfortable when you’re in her care.

Face Lift

The results from the laser and face lift were everything I had hoped for. Smooth and tightened skin that makes me look and feel much younger. I’ve had so many compliments and inquiries into what I had done and where.

Breast Implant Removal

I felt that I was listened to, understood and offered reasonable solutions to my concerns. The staff and the doctor were warm, engaging, informative and wanted to make sure I felt comfortable and educated. It was an all around great experience. Thank you.

Breast Implant Removal

The entire staff were so welcoming and kind. All of my questions were answered, I felt comfortable and listened to. Honestly it was a great experience from start to finish.

Breast Implant Removal

Very friendly and helpful with every question we had. Worked with us in every way to meet our needs and timing. Also, very thankful that it was suggested that I have a lift at the same time due to my implant size and how I would look afterward.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Maxwell and her staff made me feel very comfortable and listened to what I was looking for. I was given suggestions based on my desired results and given the time needed to make a decision. During my procedure I was treated respectfully and well taken care of. After my procedure I was able to ask the nurses any questions I had and at each follow-up appointment all my questions and concerns were answered. I not only feel that the staff did a great job through the whole process but I am very pleased with my results and would recommend anyone looking for the procedure to go to Dr. Maxwell.

Tummy Tuck

Loved seeing the 4D images before and staying overnight for constant observation. I did have a complication right after in the overnight room so it was great to be watched carefully. [Single best thing is...] Fixing my diastasis and removing over a pound of excess skin that I could never do.

Breast Implant Removal

The entire capsules were removed and my muscles were repaired beautifully. Scars healing nicely. Pain is gone. [Single best thing is...] The wonderful surgery and recovery personnel. The pictures and explanations of my particular surgery.

Breast Implant Removal

Dr. Maxwell is a wonderful, caring and skilled physician. I needed a complete en bloc to have my breast implants removed. I researched plastic surgeons in Tucson area and found that she has the most experience in breast explants. She is very thorough in providing instructions before and after surgery to optimize healing. Her staff is also great. Jody is a sweetheart and treats you like family. I highly recommend Dr. Maxwell for anyone considering plastic surgery! I felt that Dr. Maxwell provided the best care before and after surgery. The instructions, vitamin supplements and follow up care is wonderful!
