Mary Gingrass, MD Reviews (229)

Breast Implant Removal

The information provided during my pre-op visit and the packet covered all the facets of the surgery including detailed directions to selected facility. Also received patient assistance regarding payment options and was given an estimate which was very close to actual expense. The staff made me feel comfortable discussing the surgery and with examination. I couldn't be more pleased with the results.

Tummy Tuck

The level of knowledge and confidence shown by Dr. Gingrass and her staff was amazing. I knew I was in good hands. I followed every directive and love my results. They know their stuff!


I am familiar with the office staff due to prior services and also Working in the healthcare field myself. It was extremely important to me to make the best possible choice that I could take for any services rendered. As a result I will always use Nashville plastic surgery for any future forward procedures.

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Gingrass was highly professional and clear in counseling. She understood my desired outcome and fulfilled them fully. She is an outstanding surgeon.


I had chin lipo and it really changed the look of my profile. My result is great!

Scar Revision

Dr. Gingrass was very responsive to my request to fix what we had been discussing. She managed my expectations well.

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Gingrass is an excellent plastic surgeon. I had one breast that I had a problem with, and she immediately knew how to fix the problem. She did a beautiful joy on my surgery. The staff is absolutely wonderful.

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Gingrass was so helpful with all of the breast augmentation revision options. I decided to have a lift and smaller implant. I look and feel younger and thinner. My buttons no longer pull! Her staff is so caring and always had time for me when I called with after care questions. Total 5 star experience!

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Gingrass was amazing - from start to finish. She was innovative in her approach and flawless in her technique. She gave me realistic expectations and made me feel confident in my choice. Dr. Gingrass’s approach to use thigh fat to camouflage my pectus excavatum was non-invasive and gave me the result I was seeking.


Everything was explained and they treated you like a family member. I love the outcome of the tummy tuck

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Gingrass is an excellent surgeon and her staff is top notch. They are so pleasant and truly care about their patients.

Breast Reduction

I wanted smaller more natural looking and feeling breast. After 12+ years from my last implant surgery, I was nervous about how I would like the new look. But I am very pleased with the overall new natural look and feel! I am more comfortable exercising and sleeping.

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Gingrass and her team truly made all the difference. Not only are they extremely professional, they are caring and accommodating and always make me feel welcome and comfortable, whether in the office, on the phone or on the day of my procedure. I also feel that Dr. Gingrass, being a woman, can relate to my needs better, boosting her ability to asses and exceed expectations. The clinicians at the facility were also very patient, kind and treated me very well from start to finish. My healing and lack of pain post procedure were amazing. Dr. Gingrass' use of Exparel directly in the abdomen made my recovery the easiest of any surgery I have ever had. I literally only took pain medication in the recovery room and one more later that day when I was at home. After that I was able to use Tylenol or Motrin. I am grateful she is on the cutting edge of best medical technology and practices.

Breast Implant Removal

Dr. Gingrass is so easy to talk to and she does such a fantastic job. She’s very knowledgeable and extremely compassionate. I felt like she and her staff were always available to me for any and all questions. I feel like I got the exact results I wanted! What could be better than that?

Breast Augmentation

Very pleased with process and results. Love the friendly staff!

Mommy Makeover

As everyone likes to say, “I wish I had done this sooner!” Don’t wait, do it NOW! I had a breast reduction/lift, tummy tuck & neck lipo in Sept. 2018. I went from a DDD to a nice C cup and I had over 3lbs of a pooch removed from my tummy. Dr. Gingrass and her staff made me feel comfortable and confident in their abilities from the very first visit. I knew I was their number one priority. These people are REAL! Dr. G was very forthright and honest, which made me feel even more relaxed and assured that this was the right doctor for me. I had consult appts. with 2 other doctors (one much closer to my home) and I canceled them. I had found my doctor. Additionally, the hospital staff spoke glowingly of Dr. Gingrass on the day of my surgery. From the woman checking me in to the nurses; everyone’s body language became relaxed and calm when they realized who my doctor was. I heard more than once, Oh, I love her!. From the staff, people! It was easy to see that THEY felt valued by Dr. Gingrass (the girl checking me in even said as much!). She is highly regarded and respected by the hospital staff and that is very indicative of how she treats others. I also overheard hall conversations between Dr. G and hospital staff and it was easy to ascertain that their relationship was one of friendship and not superiority. I say all this, because I wanted a doctor who understood and sympathized and not one who was on a power trip to be in charge and make big bucks. I wanted a PROFESSIONAL doctor on MY team and that is what I got! Dr. Gingrass took the time to get to know me and what I wanted from this surgery and was there for ME -- not the prestige or money. She truly cares and a caring doctor will do everything to keep the patient safe and EXTREMELY DELIGHTED with the end results!! That's Dr. Gingrass! I've never owned a bikini. Now, I have several. And who needs to wear a bra….I don’t! I almost feel as if I have lived two lives. The one before surgery and the one after. My breasts were large, wide, and heavy. I constantly had rashes underneath and between them due to the lack of air circulation. I knew they were heavy due to the strain on my neck and shoulders, but I didn't realize how much so until I was wheeled out of recovery. The one and only time I cried during the entire recovery was at this moment, because I could breathe!!! My husband asked why I was crying and I said, it's so much easier to breathe!. This is a moment in my life I will never forget!!! I had no idea how much that weight affected my breathing! I love my tummy tuck; its almost like the icing on the cake. But the cake is the breast reduction and lift. It truly is life changing!!!!!! Neck pain, shoulder pain, back pain, expensive and ugly bras are all gone!! Hello world of sexy bras (when I want to wear a bra!) and bikinis!!!

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Gingrass is amazing! An expert with the best bedside manner as well.

Eyelid Surgery

Everything was great! So glad I chose Dr. Gingrass to do my procedure. The outcome was exactly what I wanted. Very caring and professional staff.

Breast Implant Removal

Dr. Gingrass and her staff made me feel very comfortable. Dr. Gingrass answered all my questions and did not try to persuade me into getting another set of implants as my previous plastic surgeon did. I am very pleased with the results and would recommend Dr. Gingrass to anyone looking to have surgery.

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Gingrass and her staff showed more concern and compassion during this whole experience than I have ever had from any surgery. The Surgery Center staff also was compassionate, and I felt at ease the whole process. If only all medical professionals could be like Dr. Gingrass, and her staff.
