I can't say enough good things! I had seen photos of the amazing work Dr. Bailey performs, but once I experienced it on my own body...WOW! My tummy is a 180! And has more muscle tone and definition than when I was a teen. My breasts are perfect! They look and feel young again! I can lie on my back and they no longer slide into my armpits.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Bailey. He did breast reconstruction 20 plus years post cancer. He didnt have much to work with, but I now have two beautiful breasts that are the same size. i recomend Dr. Bailey wholeheartedly.

dr Bailey was incedible. I cant rave enough about him. I saw three previous drs before and once i met Dr. Bailey I said this is the one. He was so knowledgeable and explained everything along with making me feel comfortable. His work turned out absolutely incredible. Better than i even imagine. I was so pleased with his work, i refered him to my brother who had his chin and eyes done. My brother looks absolutely fabulous. Cant thank you enough

Dr. Bailey exceeded my expectations. I appreciate his kindness, patience and allowing me to feel good about myself once again. I knew right away that he cares about his patients and takes pride in what he does. It was hard enough being told that I have breast cancer, have bilateral mastectomies with reconstruction and feel worse than I did prior to surgery. I knew the reconstruction that my original surgeon did was not acceptable. I tried my best to ignore it, but I could any longer. I am happy that this is behind me now and I can't thank you enough, Dr. Bailey.

Very pleased with my results from a breast reduction. I was nervous about the surgery but Dr Bailey did a great job at answering all my questions with a calm demeanor. My expectations were met and recovery has gone well. He is very skilled in his profession, and I would highly recommend his practice.

I already have and both of us will do so again. He is amazing. My life partners hand had a horrible growth on the back and he also has cancer.Dr Bailey did a very difficult resectioning surgery. His technique was such that a skin graft was not required. He twist his skin and stapled it and his hand is like a brand new hand, and when he healed it is the most beautiful end result.Dr.Bailey is gifted, it really is unbelievable. I give Dr. Bailey high ratings on his surgery and on The person he is, a very kind man and humble. I also had a surgery with him it was on a cancer in my leg he did an amazing job and you would never know that he did a 3“ x 1“ wide. That’s a good plastic surgeon.

Not good at all. Total confusion on pre-op requirements which caused undue Problems for patient at late time prior to surgery. Orders for pre-op either written incorrectly or missed. Very stressful and had to actually request same papers repeatedly. Would not ever do this surgery at all as it was never explained before time of how crippling it was and the extensive healing time.
