I had a breast augmentation surgery performed by Dr. Elkwood about two months and I couldn't be happier. He is not only compassionate, but he had so much patience answering all of my questions and concerns (I had A LOT) before and after the surgery. Dr. Elkwood's staff at The Plastic Surgery center is courteous and very helpful. His nurse Katie is just as amazing as Dr. Elkwood, I would seriously call her multiple times a week questions and she was always kind and helpful. Great experience!
Had rhinoplasty by Dr Elkwood. I was not happy with the results. I now have a ridge on one side and a dent on the other side. When I showed him the issue, first he said I was being too hard on myself and he then pulled out the before and after pics, only to show he made it worse. My nose points off to the side more than before. He volunteered to do a revision at no cost. Opting out to go to a doctor I trust more, specializing in rhinoplasty. Weighed on my mind for 2 years whether to post or not.

After my breast cancer diagnosis, a double mastectomy with Tram flap reconstruction was very intimidating for me and caused me anxiety and fear. Dr. Andrew Elkwood and his staff at immediately calmed my fears and eased me through the decision making process and actual procedures. Dr. Elkwood explained my options in terms I could easily understand and always treated me with confidence, humor and compassion. His expertise and staff are second to none. I am thrilled with the final result.
