I highly recommend Dr. Fernau to anyone looking to have fillers. He is very knowledgeable and knows exactly what filler would be best for you. He takes the time and answers all your questions in a clear and concise way. I felt very comfortable with Dr. Fernau and trusted his care for me. I received Bellafill as my filler and I have amazing results. I will only go to Dr. Fernau for all my future needs. His office staff is also all wonderful!

I had laser scar revision on my leg. The results were fantastic. Dr. Fernau fixed the incision and took care of the nerves that were affected by my accident. I also had laser scar revision on my hand, and he provided free follow ups to ensure that the scar was completely non existent. The staff was incredibly friendly. They all had cheerful tones, and they ensured that I was comfortable. They are all wonderful and sweet. They really care about their patients. I had practically no wait time. I wo

Dr Fernau performed an incision free hair transplant called NeoGraft one year ago with excellent results! I finally have a full head of hair! Six months ago he performed a rhinoplasty and after the swelling went down this procedure really change my life. He is a smart kind and compassionate doctor with a beautiful and caring staff! He will be Mike Dr. forever!

I would recommend trying the SmartLipo for getting rid of that unwanted fat in the areas you cant seem to get rid of it Dr. Fernau really knows what hes doing and can really help with anybodys situation. He is highly recommended and offers many more procedures.
in Pittsburgh, PA |
After the initial consultation and surgery, I have waited for hours in the waiting room only to be rushed out of the appointment. I am not happy with my results and don't feel like Dr Fernau takes my concerns seriously. He does not do before and after simulations which would be extremely helpful.
