I had a mastectomy 6 years ago and was leary about reconstruction. Since it had been 5 years since my mastectomy I was very scared but he explained everything in detail and was very kind and considerate with every surgery I had. Dr. Pedersen was WONDERFUL!!! I had three surgeries in total and very please with my results. He is a great Doctor!!!

I am a breast cancer survivor and My experience was not good just recently I had to have all my reconstruction all redone. My new surgeon actually said it was a mess in my chest and that both implants were ruptured so to the fat grafting done by doctor pederson. I was shown pictures of the implants removed with the fat in them and slashed all through them. I do not recommend him for any kind of breast reconstruction and his bedside manners are very poor.

I can not say enough about my experience with Dr. Pedersen! He is professional , attentive , and down to earth ! Plastic surgery can be a scary experience for most of us . He made me feel 100% comfortable throughout the entire process ! He gave me exactly what I asked for ! He is a very skilled and detail oriented plastic surgeon ! He truly gives you top notch results !! He gave me my confidence back ! He is by far the best plastic surgeon in the Akron area !
