"I never saw myself as being the "typical" plastic surgery patient. But after two children and the merging of my breasts with my stomach, I found myself unhappy and wanted to do something about it. I researched doctors in the area, asked my doctor for referrals, and asked friends who they suggested I use. Two co-workers had used and loved Dr. Austin and he was also who my family physician had recommended. When I met Dr. Austin and his staff I was amazed how at-ease I was. All my questions were answered and felt comfort in knowing Dr. Austin would never do anything that didn't fit my body or would cause future health problems. The day of my surgery I had nurses telling me how wonderful Dr. Austin was and how lucky I was to have chosen such a great doctor. After having a breast lift and augmentation, I know how lucky I am to have chosen such a great doctor! Dr. Austin and Debi (staff) went above and beyond during this procedure and I couldn't be happier!"

"I met with Dr. Austin to discuss a possible mastectomy with reconstruction. He is such a caring, attentive and knowledgeable doctor. He explained every option that was available to me. He never once pressured me in any way to do anything I didn't want to do, he always put my medical condition first. I always felt important and cared for. All of my needs were always met from the entire front office staff. They always treated me with understanding, respect and care. Dr. Austin and his staff have gone above and beyond with every single encounter I have with them. Dr. Austin is the most proficient medical provider I have every had. "

"I had my first surgery for removal of a sebaceous cyst. Dr. Austin did a splendid job with no post-operative pain. He is a talented surgeon. As soon as you meet and talk with him you realize your problems are over. My friend stated "Pete, with Dr. Austin at the helm all is well, put your worries aside". Dr. Austin is a very altruistic person and he has the best bedside manner of any doctor I have every had previously."

"After bariatric surgery I lost a lot of weight. My thoughts turned to plastic surgery. I asked medical friends for their recommendations & Dr. Austin's name was always mentioned first. They praised his meticulous work. They also added that I not only would be getting top notch work but that he is also and all around caring and nice guy. They were right! I had a tummy tuck & breast lift and then my arms and thighs. Dr. Austin & his staff took me through my first consultation and on the follow ups flawlessly."

"I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a mastectomy in 2008. Dr. Austin performed the reconstructive surgeries. He and his staff were professional and outstanding in every respect. Dr. Austin clearly explained the options to me and my husband so we could feel confident and comfortable making a decision. Because of our confidence in him, the reconstructive process was unbelievably easy for me. The results were beyond our expectations."

~ Susie H.

I first had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Austin when a family member was going through breast reconstructive surgery several years ago. I knew from her experience that if I ever needed a surgeon, it would be Dr. Austin.

It was therefore without hesitation that I went to Dr. Austin when I recently had to undergo breast reconstructive surgery. I could not be more pleased with my results or care. Not only is Dr. Austin an outstanding surgeon, he is an outstanding person. He has great compassion and care for his patients, not only as clients, but as people. I find his staff to have these same qualities.
