Sonya Merriman, MD Reviews (137)


I have been a patient of Dr. Merriman's for many years. I trust her judgment with these injection and outcome always exceeds my expectations. Less visible lines and wrinkles in areas treated!

Breast Augmentation

I had breast augmentation back in April and infection set up in the left breast and the implant had to be removed. Then in July it was put back in. I was very concerned and nervous about the 2nd round. It has been 5 weeks already and the breast implant is not dropping in place like it should .

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr. Merriman is always professional and knowledgeable.

Breast Lift

Due to the nature of the visit, I was at first very insecure and timid. Dr. Merriman and her wonderful staff made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I am very happy with my results and have already referred several of my friends and family members to Dr. Merriman.

Breast Augmentation

Absolutely loved the accommodations and staff!


Yes-always pleased with the work of Dr. Merriman. Good results!

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Merriman and her staff are very professional. Dr. Merriman does amazing work. [Single best thing is...] EVERYTHING was perfect.

Breast Augmentation

Everyone treated me very kindly and everyone was so knowledgeable about and questions I had! I loved the fact after my surgery Dr. Merriman herself called to check on me day one post op! I couldn’t have asked for my breasts to turn out more even and perfect!! Very grateful I choose to use her and have this positive experience!!

Breast Implant Removal

I had my breast implants removed that I had for 29 years. I also had Dr. Merriman do a breast lift. I would recommend her to anyone that is considering having a procedure.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr. Merriman truly listens to me as a patient and responds to my preferences. She doesn't mind taking the conservative approach I appreciate. I feel absolutely confident (and beautiful) in her expert hands! [Single best thing is...] I think my eyes look bigger!

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Very pleased

HydraFacial MD®

Dr. Merriman has impressed me from my first consult. Her spirit is calm and confident. Dr. Merriman's skill level as a plastic surgeon far exceeded my expectations. Her staff is professional and friendly. Her business is run like a well oiled machine. I've never waited longer than ten minutes. I can't verbalize how wonderful Dr. Merriman truly is. I appreciate her warm and honest character and I am forever grateful for her surgical talent. Dr. Merriman is the best of the best!!!


Everyone is very professional and Karen was very kind and gentle and gave thorough instructions and explained to me what to expect.

Tummy Tuck

All the staff were very friendly and professional. Dr. Merriman was very informative and answered all my questions! I would highly recommend Dr. Merriman!

Breast Reduction

Everyone was very informative and helpful from start to finish. Dr. Merriman did an excellent job with the surgery and I have been very pleased with the outcome even though I'm not 100% healed yet. My visits were quick and painless and when I had a concern about one of my incisions they got me in asap to have it checked out!

Breast Augmentation

I told Dr. Sonya what size I wanted my breasts to be and how much I wanted to avoid a tummy tuck during my consultation. Well.......Dr. Sonya delivered 100%. Even though I had a complication I have still been giving Dr. Sonya and her staff great reviews. I had very little post-operative pain. I had very little bruising from abdominal liposuction and practically no scarring from the incisions. My friends had gone to other plastic surgeons and they did not have the great experience I did. I am 8wks post-op and my results have far exceeded what I expected. NO PAIN!!! I had absolutely no post-op pain. I dont know if it's because my pain tolerance is high but I'm telling everyone I had no pain because of Dr. Sonya's excellent surgical skills.

Injectable Fillers

Dr. Merriman was very professional and attentive to what my end goal was. I am so much more confident with my appearance!

Breast Augmentation

The surgery was great as well as the checkups.

Eyelid Surgery

BOTOX® Cosmetic
