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.

Dr. Brown says...

The most important factor that you control with respect to having a successful outcome after plastic surgery is the surgeon you select. It is important for you to know about the qualifications and experience of your plastic surgeon.

After graduating high school he earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia. Before attending medical school he was an orderly at Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta, where he discovered his passion for surgery. Dr. Brown then moved to Chicago where he earned his medical degree from The Chicago Medical School. While there, he was president of the Student Surgical Society. He then completed his General Surgery residency at Northwestern University in Chicago.

While at Northwestern, Dr. Brown joined Dr. Thomas Mustoe's lab and spent one year dedicated to wound healing and scar research. During that year, he wrote and published papers in one of the top Plastic Surgery journals, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. He then graduated and became certified by the American Board of Surgery in General Surgery. Finally, Dr. Brown completed his residency training in the field of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) in Omaha. Plastic Surgeon in Phoenix Dr. Richard Joseph Brown was proud to begin his practice in the specialty of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery after 12 years of training. He is double board certified in both General Surgery and Plastic Surgery. He is originally from Atlanta, Georgia where many of his family members still reside. Dr Brown's goal is to treat every patient with respect and admiration as if they were a member of his family. He always strives to be self-critical of his work so that at the end of the day, he can say he did his best. He is passionate about this commitment.
