BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr. Grotting and staff are always professional, knowledgeable and courteous. They take the time to address my concerns and make me as comfortable as possible.

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Grotting and his staff listened to my concerns and explained all options to me and how each would benefit my situation. I felt like the whole office was genuinely invested in me being happy with my final result. I am thrilled with my surgery results! More confident

Tummy Tuck

Face Lift

It’s a great feeling to know you can trust the entire Grotting staff to take care of you. This was a big deal for me but they always spent time with me to discuss my concerns to put my mind at ease.


The entire staff was professional and polite. They made me feel comfortable and answered all of my questions.

Breast Lift

Dr. Grotting was tremendous!! He made me feel so at ease and comfortable!! He treated me with such respect and answered all my questions!! The entire staff was just so wonderful!! Dr. Grotting and his staff made this an outstanding experience for me!! The surgery results were above what I even hoped for cosmetically and the total relief of my pain was the very best blessing!!

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Grotting was referred by [another doctor], whom I respect. I was also impressed by how Dr. Grotting closely listened to me. Also appreciated that Dr. G was open with me about the details of the procedure and healing time.

Eyelid Surgery

It made me look younger! They were very professional, friendly and treated me as “one of them”. All the staff very helpful.

Breast Augmentation

Overall more confident with my body. They did exactly what I was wanting them to do. . Everything about Dr. Grotting and his staff was amazing. I was probably one of their most nervous patients never having surgery. Dr. Grotting initially told me during the consultation that since I had so many fears, maybe breast augmentation wasn’t for me. I truly respected him for that. He isn’t a surgeon to try to talk you into a surgery for your money. That was the reason I chose him, and I’m so glad I did. He did AMAZING. I never experienced any pain and most importantly they turned out better than even I had envisioned. He’s an artist.

Eyelid Surgery

Everything was great! Nurse care was perfect!

Mommy Makeover

Dr. Grotting and his entire staff were professional, positive and made me feel very good about my surgery. I have breast lift, augmentation and a tummy tuck - all at the same time. I am very satisfied and will recommend Dr. Grotting to my friends and family.

Neck Lift

The attitude of every person in this office is phenomonal. It’s so rare anymore to experience such professional behavior from every person I had contact with in this practice. It speaks directly to the heart of this place that they really treat their clients as any business should but rarely do. It gave me the confidence I needed to choose Dr Grotting as my surgeon. What an awesome team he has put together.

Face Lift

This office is very professional, and helpful in all manners. The confidence you have in your surgeon and other staff members makes all the difference in your attitude before and after surgery. I have found Dr Grotting to be the best in this business of plastic surgery! I would not go to anyone else for my procedures. He has made me look so refreshed and younger looking. No one ever guesses have had surgery it is so professionally done. I just look natural and refreshed. He is my hero and the best! [patient name]

Breast Augmentation

I thought that the computer technology was extremely helpful for me to make a decision about a potential breast augmentation. The other surgeons I had consulted with did not offer the same technology. I thought the nurse was extremely helpful and spent a lot of time trying to understand exactly what I wanted. This is a huge decision and I appreciate the care and consideration that all the staff took to make sure I felt comfortable and to answer all my questions. I will most likely schedule another consultation to make some final decisions before scheduling my surgery date.

Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation

Dr Grotting and his team were beyond fantastic throughout my entire surgical experience! I've recommended them to several friends and family. He made my evaluation visit less nerve wracking and explained what to expect realistically. My outcome is amazing and I couldn't be happier and more pleased! I will definitely go back for any more procedures in the future!

Staff and physicians were very nice, professional, and informative. Questions were answered in a timely manner. Results surpassed my expectations.

Everyone was so nice and it was a relaxed atmosphere. I am also very pleased with my results. It has completely changed my quality of life. No more back pain and clothes fit so much better!
