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.

Breast Augmentation

The staff was very down to earth. Dr Gingrass listened to everything I said, and made helpful suggestions to accomplish the look I wanted. She knew I wanted to look natural and did just that. I am not ashamed of my body anymore. I worked so hard to lose my baby weight, but still had the ugly belly. I don’t dread looking in the mirror now

Breast Augmentation

They treated me like family !!

Breast Lift

Dr. Gingrass is an honest, highly skilled plastic surgeon. I could not be happier with my results!

Breast Augmentation

From my very first appointment where I just had questions to my last post-op, Dr. Gingrass and her staff were very friendly, made me feel very comfortable and answered all my questions. I would send anyone there for this procedure, everything turned out just how I had hoped. Dr. Gingrass specifically was amazing. She completely understand the look I wanted to achieve and was down to earth and relatable. This was my first time having any type of plastic surgery so I wasn't exactly sure what to expect. The surgery was a lot easier than I had imagined and they answered all my questions. I was also all on my own pre-surgery and was pretty nervous and they helped calm my nerves. I cannot say enough great things!! I will definitely go back and recommended this practice to anyone!

Body Lift

The doctor and the surgical center were both excellent. I have more confidence. Priceless.

Breast Reduction

i no longer have back pain. I am amazed at how much better i feel. Everyone was extremely friendly very helpful made me feel at ease about my surgery, can't say enough good things about the staff and Dr Gingrass thank you all so much

Tummy Tuck

Amazing. Dr. Gingrass was absolutely the most caring person I have ever been associated with. She did a fantastic job. Her staff was wonderful.

Breast Augmentation

It was an excellent experience. Everyone of the staff was professional courteous and answered all my questions I feel great about how I look

Breast Augmentation

Great doctors, nurses, and surgical team. I loved Dr. Gingrass. Both she and her staff were highly caring and professional. The experience was more “spa” like instead of medical:-)

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Gingrass and nurse Lauren Wells have outstanding beside manner. They spent time explaining after surgery care and wound care. Were able to diagnosis medical issue. Always available for any questions or concerns. Feel lighter and easier to move around. This is something I have wanted to do for years.

Tummy Tuck

Cosmetic procedure for skin removal - I wish I had done this years ago, but I didn't think I deserved it. Whew.....was I wrong. I was treated like a queen by all ! Thank you for changing my life at the ripe age of 56 :)

Body Lift

It's been fantastic!! I can finally wear pants at my waist instead of my hips, I can buy normal shirts at the store in a L or XL instead of needing a *Tall* size because of my height and where I had to wear my pants - it's just overall life-changing. I've got so much more confidence in running or exercising that I'd never have without it. Dr. Gingrass will do absolutely everything in her power to make you as prepared and satisfied with your procedure as possible. She warned me about every little thing and when the dilemma with the infection occurred, she helped manage the issue with me being 2 hours away (in Chattanooga).

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Gingrass and her staff are absolutely amazing !! They go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that everything you need is taken care off.. I would and I do recommend them to everyone looking to have surgery !! I feel so good about myself now ! I feel comfortable and sexy in my clothes... I dont have to hide my body with big baggy clothes. My only regret is that i should of had this surgery sooner because it really boost my self esteem !!
