Breast Augmentation

Dr. Hess did not try to influence my decision as to implant size. I felt he listened to my wishes. When complications arose after surgery, I felt he truly was concerned and cared about my recovery.

Breast Lift

Overall I am very happy with my procedure--a breast lift with augmentation, 5 months after surgery. It took me a solid 3 months to be happy, however. While I was told I would experience some feelings of regret and possible depression immediately following the surgery, I was not prepared for how long these feelings would last. I was in a state of depression/regret for most of the summer. Again, I'm now very happy with the results but I think people should consider how much this could impact them--it is truly a major surgery. I was in quite a bit of pain for a long time as well, and then just discomfort. People should just put a lot of thought into doing this and know you will need a lot of time to be back to normal--as far as sleeping position, wearing a regular bra, resuming normal activities, going to the gym, etc. That said, very very happy with results!

Tummy Tuck

From the initial consultation throughout the entire process, Dr. Hess and team have been absolutely incredible. Every single interaction has been professional and positive. I am thrilled with my results already! It has been transformative in my confidence level and how I feel about my body. For the first time in my entire life, I feel comfortable in my own skin. I am participating in life more than ever before.


I shopped for high waisted pants for the first time in my life today. I almost cried. Everything changed for the better since my lipo. I feel like myself. . Everything from price to the process were amazing, I was comfortable the entire time and not nervous at all. The staff and the doctor were very helpful and compassionate, I would absolutely do this again if I ever considered another procedure in the future. Thank you.

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Hess, his staff and the surgery center he recommended were all excellent. Dr. Hess was warm but professional; listened and understood to all my concerns about having my 20-year breast implants removed. He managed my expectations and has provided information and advice since the surgery that has helped the healing process. I truly could not be happier with my results and the care I was given by Dr. Hess and his staff.

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Hess and his staff are very down to earth, easy going people. They explained things in a way that made sense. I was fully aware of how I would or could feel after my surgery experience.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Hess delivered on my expectations Confidence!

Breast Augmentation

Overall, I had a wonderful experience. Everyone was attentive and helpful. Any surgery makes one nervous but the staffs' warm approach was calming and comforting. Bottom line I didn't feel like I picked a number and was waiting to be called next.... I don't recall some of the nurses names but I really appreciate the fact that they were personable and pleasant. I would like to thank the staff for all they did for me before, during and after my surgery. The staff being nice is top on my list. IT was a great experience.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Hess is absolutely THE BEST at what he does. I was a little nervous about having surgery, recovery, and the whole process (I'm on the smaller side and I didn't want the outcome of my procedure to look unnatural). Dr. Hess was very patient, attentive and listened to what I wanted. He asked detailed questions to make sure I had the best experience possible, and boy did he deliver. I had a seamless surgery; in and out within a few hours and felt almost back to normal two days after surgery. I had some abnormal bleeding (I'm small and opted for a larger implant)- but Dr. Hess HIMSELF called me multiple times as well as saw me in person on HIS time off just to put my mind at ease and resolve the complication. He's always reachable, which made a big difference to me.Also, Dr. Hess's staff is the nicest, most patient group of people you will meet and his facilities are spotless and beautiful - you feel like you are in a spa instead of a Dr's office. I am SO PLEASED with the overall outcome of my surgery. Despite having chosen a larger implant size, the work looks absolutely natural and my friends tell me that if they hadn't known me before the surgery, they wouldn't even be able to tell if I had an operation - they would have just assumed I had naturally bigger breasts. In addition, the scars healed very nicely - looks like a 5cm pencil line. I've seen work from other surgeons and Dr. Hess really does a nice job making sure you don't end up with a scar (even though they are hidden).Overall, an amazing experience. I can't say enough nice things. I would recommend my friends, family, ANYONE to Dr. Hess and his practice. He's worth every penny!

Breast Augmentation

DR. Hess and staff were amazing, from making my first call to ask questions to my 3 month follow up appt. I never felt pressured, he answered every question I had and I had a lot! He was patient when it was time to do my sizing appointment. Very honest and helpful. I have had a few friends go and see him already and they have all loved him too. I have the most amazing BOOBS ever!!! All because of DR. Hess and his staff <3

Breast Augmentation

I had a breast augmentation with Dr Hess and I love my results. Dr Hess is very professional, he understands what the customer wants and he helps us to make the right decision. During my procedure all the nurses and stuff were very friendly and caring. I felt save and secure. Everyone at the hospital were making sure I was safe and had a good procedure. Dr hess has the best method to recover from the surgery. No scars, no pain and easy recover. I highly recommend Dr Hess for me he is the best in town and I love my new breast, he really understands.

Breast Augmentation

Dr made me feel comfortable from the start. The gallery was wonderful I also like many of the desceiptions as I could relate to other patients. I love the work, my breasts are perfection!!! I feel so womenly! All my clotges still fit, they just fit waaaay better!!

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Hess and his staff, as well as the staff and the surgical center, were nothing short of spectacular. Their attention, patience, and respect were evident through every step of the process. I was extremely comfortable with every person I dealt with and felt well taken care of. I would, without hesitation, recommend Dr. Hess to anyone looking to receive a cosmetic procedure. The active recovery program exceeded my expectations in every way. My procedure was completed on a Friday, and by the following Monday, I was able to go about my day-to-day business without any assistance from my husband, including driving. The short amount of physical down time combined with the limited need for narcotic pain relief made this experience especially remarkable.
