Always Wanted a Breast Augmentation - Snellville, GA - Dr. Stephenson and his staff are EXCELLENT!!!!! Truly one of the best experiences of my life, thanks to this physician and his staff. - - Dr. Stephenson and his staff are EXCELLENT!!!!!!!!!!!! I have never felt more relaxed and at ease with a surgical procedure. The end result was amazing and beautiful. I have sent and will continue to send patients to this practice. To me this is the ONLY physician you should consider when planning your plastic surgery.
30 Years Old, One Child, 34GG/H to Hopefully C - Dr. Stephenson is GREAT! - - I have wanted a breast reduction for the last 10 years. My breasts have always been large, heavy and bothersome.I finally decided the time was right after I had my daughter. I went to see Dr. Stephenson on December 2, 2016 to get the ball rolling on the process and had my chiropractor (who I had been seeing for years d/t back and neck problems) fax over a recommendation for the procedure. It took 15 days to hear of my approval from the insurance company (UHC). The PS office called me to schedule my appointment and pre-open. I didn't need a mammogram. Blood work was drawn and I saw the anesthesia assistant during my hospital pre-op and I spoke with Dr. Stephenson in his office for his pre-opinion where he explained the procedure and recovery in greater detail and answered my questions. I paid $180 to the hospital and $400 to the PS in order to meet my deductible. So I've only paid $580 out of pocket.The day of surgery I woke up and washed with the CHG sponge I was given by the hospital. We arrived at 6am, my procedure was scheduled for 0730. In pre-op a peripheral line was placed in my handand fluids were started. Dr. Stephenson came in and marked my breasts, the operating team and anesthetists came in and I was given Versed to relax. I said goodbye to my mom and was wheeled back. I remember getting onto the surgical table and a nurse strapping down my left arm. Then all of a sudden I was waking up.The anesthesia did not make me sick. My pain is more accurately described as discomfort. It was maybe a 2/10 when I woke up. As soon as I was stable, the nurses brought my mom back and helped me get dressed so i could go home. I slept through the rest of the afternoon and evening. I was given a perscription for muscle relaxers and percocet. I have been taking both about every 6 hours. My level of discomfort currently is a 1/10. I removed my gauze and showered yesterday (Day 2 PO). I kept my back to the water stream. It was not bad and I felt refreshed afterward. I have minimal decreased ROM in my arms, but I have noticed some swelling from under my armpits down to my torso. The areas are sort of tender. I am forcing myself not to resume normal activities because I feel good. I don't want to cause any complications. Today is day 3 PO. I will shower tonight and post more pics. My PO appointment with the doctor is tomorrow afternoon and I will update then also. 10/10 would reccomend this to anyone!
I am beyond satisfied with my results. I had to have my third hernia repair along with getting a tummy tuck. Dr. Stephenson made the coordination with the general surgery so easy. I am no longer experiencing pain, discomfort and bloating since surgery plus I have abs now!!! I had a very good recovery without any complications. Post-op visits were a great experience as well (in and out). This physician is easy to get in contact with and responds back quickly. Money well spent! I'd do it all over.
From Flat to Fab!! - Dr. Stephenson is attentive and he cares about the progress of the patient. He also includes a number of follow-up post op appointments in the price to ensure the quality of the procedure. - - I went in to see Dr Stephenson about getting a breast augmentation. I was barely fitting into an A cup all of my life until I had my first child and experienced a bigger and fuller chest. I loved how it looked and felt until I went flat again after I stopped breastfeeding. Dr. Stephenson was able to accomplish that exact same look and size that I had once before based off a few photos that I had and I feel like it is even better!! His patient care and customer service is very comforting and at anytime I had a concern, I was able to get in touch with him. I would definitely recommend Signature Plastic Surgery to anyone wanting to make a change for the better in their life.
Dr. Stephenson and his staff were wonderful throughout my surgery process. He and his staff were very polite and attentive and willing to answer any questions I had. I highly recommend them for anyone looking to have reconstructive surgery.
At my first consultation appointment, Dr. Stephenson did a really great job at setting expectations for the surgery and results I could receive. We discussed and agreed on the goals and limitations and he made sure I was well aware of the possible outcomes and surgery process.
The pre-op appointment covered the details of surgery day, how the surgery would be done and recovery details. On the day of surgery, I went to Gwinnett Medical Center on Pleasant Hill Road. The staff at that center was also wonderful and far exceeded my expectations of a surgical center. My surgery was completed in a few hours and I was home midday. Both the surgical center and Dr. Stephenson called me that night to make sure I was doing okay, which demonstrated a huge level of service.
After the surgery, I had a follow up appointment 4 days after and then once a week after that for the next month, followed by a 6 week and 12 week check in. At each of these visits, Dr. Stephenson and his staff made sure to answer any questions I had about my recovery and also set my expectations on the recovery process looking ahead until the next time they saw me.
Overall, I had a wonderful experience and would encourage anyone looking to have a procedure to meet with them for a consult to explore your options.
