Liposuction

THE STAFF IS AWESOME

Face Lift

Some nurses aren’t very friendly.

Tummy Tuck

I have wanted to have a tummy tuck for over 20 years, but have put it off for fear & finances. I was very ashamed of my body image and had low self esteem, but with much support from my husband & being made to feel comfortable with the doctor & staff, I finally had it done. I feel amazing, like a new person! I regret waiting for so long to have it done. I am completely satisfied with my surgery and recovery. The doctor & staff checked on me after surgery and made me feel important to them as well. I am so happy! I am satisfied with all aspects of my procedure from the time I emailed for information until now.Everyone was very helpful to me & everything I have experienced until now has been professional & friendly. I will recommend anyone to visit this facility and I plan to have all of my future procedures here as well.

Rhinoplasty

I have recommended dr merrimans practice to several people and even passed out her business card and hopes as that was the only one I had left. I know healing varies from person to person but due to an allergic reaction prescribed for healing I’m petrified that my eyes won’t turn out normal looking. The bags beneath my eyes are not as apparent but my dark circles remain clear as ever. My eye shape has changed tremendously and I’m still waiting for both outer eye corners to lift back up. My left eye appears to be notably smaller than my right eye. My rhinoplasty may still be healing as well. The overall shape of my nose is great. I do still have a visible scar on my columella which I was told should be calmer by the years end. The upper left side near the bridge of my nose has 2 apparent lines due to something internal . I did reccomend your practice to several people as I felt all of you to be knowledgeable about your various jobs. Those that were nurses and dr Merrimack are highly educated at their crafts. I want to believe that when I hit that magic 6 month or 1 year mark all of my concerns will dissipate.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

I didn't have to wait to be taken back for my appt. The staff and nurses were polite and friendly. My questions were answered fully. Almost immediately after the nurse completed the necessary questions the doctor came in to start my procedure. Dr. Merriman answered my questions and quickly put me at ease. She was knowledgeable and professional. She completed the procedure quickly, effectively with very little pain. I was very pleased with the doctor, staff and over all atmosphere of the office. The results looked natural!

Breast Reduction

My breasts are normal size again!! . My breasts were way too large to suit me. They were always in my way. I was very uncomfortable with the way my clothes fit, always self concious. My breast now are normal for me. My blouses fit! I’m not self concious any more. I no longer feel like “the girl with the biggest boobs in the room”! The employees were very nice. I never felt uncomfortable. Everything was explained to me and they were always available for questions. I have already referred others to Dr. Merriman. I will use her in the future, if and when, the need arises. Thank you, Dr. Merriman!

Tummy Tuck

The office staff at PSAV are wonderful. They are very friendly and caring. Dr. Merriman, Pam, Olivia, and Karen have taken great care of me during the entire process. They listened and answered all of my questions, no matter how silly I thought the question was. They were patient with during my recovery, answering my many questions. They went above and beyond what would be expected when I had an allergic reaction to some tape bought at a store. I would recommend Dr. Merriman and staff to anyone who is considering any type of cosmetic procedure. The results of my tummy tuck have exceeded my expectations even though I have several months to go before all of the swelling is gone.

Tummy Tuck

I felt as though I was a priority and am extremely pleased with the results Confidence boost, I workout a lot so I really needed the breast augmentation and the tummy tuck got rid of that annoying wrinkle of skin that bothered me.

Liposuction

I was told my results would improve and unless I dramatically broke my normal daily routines I would not lose my results. I have kept my normal routine and even improved it only to lose my result and they have not improved. $8500 Is alot to anyone but I'm more so upset at the principal... I paid for something I did not receive

Breast Reduction

I loved Dr. Merriman and her staff! I never felt uneasy about my surgery and they were always very open about the procedure and what i could expect. Dr. Merriman called my mom the day of and Day after to check on me and make sure everything was going ok. I had An amazing experience for my major surgery and couldn’t have asked for a better staff to perform it! My breast reduction changed my life drastically. I have more confidence in myself, I enjoy going to the pool now where as before I would find excuses to skip laying out with friends, I can do things like excercise or run more easily, I literally have a weight off my shoulders and my back pain has subsided tremendously since my surgery.

BOTOX® Cosmetic
