I just had a breast reduction performed by Dr. Schaffer on Jun 19th. He is an awesome surgeon. The staff at Hedden Plastic Surgery are all very nice and caring . He listens to your questions and concerns and he answers them very thoroughly. I really like him. I haven't seen the incisions or anything yet but, I'm very confident he did a great job. I would highly recommend him and the staff at Hedden Plastic Surgery.

Dr. Schaffer was excellent. He provided a very professional but comforting experience. I went in for a breast augmentation and lift and love my results. He did an amazing job and i am completely satisfied with the ending. He and his staff provide excellent care and are concerned about client satisfaction. I have since recommended him to several who are looking to improve their appearance. I have never scheduled an elective surgery but am impressed with the experience from start to finish.

I had an awesome experience with Dr. Shaffer and his staff at HPS. They are caring and they are willing to help you anyway they can. Dr. Shaffer told me exactly what he could do with my issues and did PERFECT. I will always recommend HPS!

I had breast augmentation surgery with Dr Schaffer and could not be more pleased with his work. I scar very easily and decided to have my implants placed through a periareolar incision to try and decrease down my scarring for cosmetic appearance. I am very pleased with my incision. I have very minimal scarring that blends in with my nipple and I have not lost hardly any nipple sensation at all. I have 450cc implants and there have been no issues with this size implant through this type incision.

Dr. Schaffer was awesome! I would use him and recommend him to any of my family and friends. I had a tummy tuck and Lipo on my flanks. I am in awe of the way my belly looks now. I can't believe it when I look in the mirror. Even bathing suit shopping this year was fun for the first time since I had my children. I bought 4 suits! His talent is nothing short of amazing!
in Montgomery, AL |
My overall experience with Dr. Schaffer has been nothing shy of excellent. The treatment, the care, the procedure, and the recovery process was all very smooth! Dr. Schaffer and his staff, make you feel like you are the most important patient they have, and go out of their way to accomplish what you are wanting.
