Share review Embed review Write an update Edit review I am a 65 year old male who works out everyday, eats right, etc, etc. I had no fat on me except for the "spare tire" on my lower abdomen. No amount of workouts, sit ups would make it go away. I went to Dr. Brown and was very pleased with the consultation. I had been to a couple others looking for the "right" doctor. I was confident he was right for me and his rate was very reasonable. I will say, not only is he great, his staff is also fantastic. The surgery was done in the Shaw Surgery Center in Scottsdale, and again, what a fantastic group of people. The following day after surgery, Dr. Brown called to see how I was doing which was nice. I had the natural swelling, however, within a week it started to go down. Within a month, the swelling was totally gone! It has been three months since the surgery and I only wish I had done it years earlier. It is nice to tuck a shirt in and have a flat stomach.

**Dr. Brown is very caring with a genuine smile and puts you at ease right away. He is very knowledgeable, and after seeing my surgery results there is no doubt as to his skill and talent! I trusted him to select my size and they fit my body perfectly. I have referred several of my friends to him and they have been pleased as well. I'm grateful to have found such a great Surgeon!

After my first consultation with Dr. Brown I knew I had chosen a great PS. He took his time during my consultation to listen to my expectations and concerns. After going over everything he helped me make the decision on the implant shape and size that would best fit my body and ideal outcome. I am now 6 weeks post op and everything is going great. I am so so so so happy with my results. Dr. Brown and his staff have been so helpful though out this entire experience. Thank you Dr. Brown!!

My name is Maddy, I'm 15 and honestly can't believe how pleased I am with Dr. Brown and the results from my breast reduction. I've dealt with back pain, shoulder pain, headaches and neck pain as a result of my large breast size (size 36 DDD-E) and can't believe the difference this surgery has made. I can't believe how much Dr. Brown and his amazing team has truly changed my life!

I was recommended to Dr. Brown, prior to relocating from NE. Both him and his staff are amazing. Dr. Brown has been very up front about what he can and can't do to help me achieve goals. I have had a few staged procedures with him to include breast augmentation, breast lift and a tummy tuck. I will be seeing him really soon for lipo of the mons. With that being said, I would definitely recommend others to him. As you can see, I am a regular customer. Rach

Dr. Brown is very kind and has good awareness of the situation and conditions I was in. He is very personable and is willing to do what he is medically is able to do. He is accurate in his diagnoses and answers any question put before him. All in all I would highly recommend Dr. Brown to anyone in need of his care. His staff is willing to go the extra mile to help this process along. Very likable.
