Breast Implant Revision

The whole office was so nice and helpful. All my questions were always answered and they went out of their way to help me.

Neck Lift

I feel really welcome at this office. Even though they are really busy, the attention is one-on-one and the patient is not rushed.

Breast Augmentation

The depth of information I received exceeded my expectation. I went in thinking I had done enough research, but the team at their office made sure I left with a complete understanding of what was going to happen and what all of my options were.

Breast Implant Removal

Very warm, friendly staff. Jody set realistic expectations and explained things to me in a manner that eased my concerns. Dr. Maxwell was genuine and it was apparent she cares about her patient outcomes.

Breast Implant Removal

Dr. Maxwell is very personable and professional. I think she did a great job and I am happy with the results. I have already recommended her to friends and family. I love how she spent time to explain the procedure and took time for follow up care.

Neck Lift

[Highly satisfied with] procedure explanation; the few questions I had at the time and my concerns were addressed without pretense; understanding my desire to have a natural looking result; Dr. Maxwell and I were in agreement with what I thought I would like to have done if I were to proceed with the procedure.

Breast Lift

Everyone was very helpful, friendly and forthcoming with any question I had. Felt like Dr. Maxwell spent ample time with me to make sure I knew what was coming.

Face Lift

I felt that the staff was attentive and knowledgeable. The pre-surgery guide was very helpful and I referred to it frequently. Dr. Gwen is very relatable and unpretentious and did a beautiful job on my surgery. It’s the only Doctor’s office I go to where everyone knows my name and makes me feel welcome and valued.

Body Lift

Everyone on the surgical team was so friendly and warm. The surgical side could not have been smoother or more comfortable. Plus, Dr. Maxwell has such a wonderful eye for shaping the body. She tucked and removed and shaped my body into something amazing. It's still terribly swollen, but I can see glimmers of how it will be in the months to come. [Single best thing is...] When I took my first shower after surgery and I didn't have to lift up an apron of fat to rinse below my belly button!

Body Lift

Dr. Gwen and Maritza are Awesome! Also, Polly at front desk is so sweet! Dr. Gwen explained just what I needed in an expert fashion and she has a wonderful bedside manner!

Breast Augmentation

Maritza and Gabbi were thorough in addressing all my questions and concerns. I did not feel rushed when trying on breast implant sizes. They were very professional and I did not feel uncomfortable at all showing my breasts during my consultation.

Breast Implant Removal

From the moment I walked in everyone seemed really friendly. Staff was very caring and Dr. Maxwell’s knowledge helped me to make the decision that was right for me. They explained all the process and what they were going to do and why they did what they did (taking pictures, showing pictures, etc). I felt very comfortable the entire time.

Neck Lift

Everyone at the medical office are consummate professionals and just wonderful people. They interact well and answer all questions with knowledge and understanding of the procedure. Dr Maxwell is a dedicated super surgeon with an eye for what is needed and provides an outcome that I can't thank her enough for. Just a great experience.

Eyelid Surgery

Results I was looking/hoping for! Loved Carol.

Breast Implant Removal

Kindness of staff, I’m very anxious and nervous about the surgery, But felt at ease through the consultation and Pre Op discussion. Maritza was very patient with my questions and concerns.

Breast Implant Removal

The staff is cheerful. The surgery staff is organized. The surgery process is efficient with little wait time.

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Maxwell has performed 4 surgeries on me. I have been happy with all of them. As far as this having a positive effect on my life I would say that this is the best money I ever spent. They say that changing how you look has no effect on what's going on internally, mentally but they are wrong. It changes everything for the better! I am grateful to Dr. Maxwell and staff. [Single best thing is...] The surgeries have greatly increased my confidence. I am happier. I go out more. I am not as afraid of people :)

Tummy Tuck

I’m an existing patient & will be returning summer 2020 for my surgery. Dr. Maxwell is a beautiful soul. Employees always perfect..

Tummy Tuck

Very caring environment. Extremely gifted doctor & nurses. They even made me feel like part of the team


Every person with whom you come in contact is courteous, considerate, punctual, professional, knowledgeable and highly skilled. [Single best thing is...] The results are amazing! I have (almost) thin thighs.
