Incredible Facelift, so glad I did it. Dr. Gerstle and his staff and warm and ALWAYS available. As a nervous person, having a surgeon who is skilled AND reachable at all times is almost impossible to find. Highly recommend.

I had an amazing experience with Dr. Gerstle and his staff and his surger center. If I had concerns, I could communicate very easily with the doctor which I really liked. I would highly recommend this doctor!

Dr. Gerstle’s has advanced surgical training and an unmatched level of skill. Not only are his results impeccable, but he is completely focused and takes as much time as anyone could possibly need for consultations and post-op visits. Moreover, he is extremely detail oriented and holds himself to the highest standards. His level of attention to each patient is beyond anything I have ever seen. Regardless of the day or hour, he always has a smile on his face and shows a positive, amazing energy.

In March of 2017 I had my breast implants removed via en bloc and had a mastopexy and nipple reduction. I couldn't be happier with my results. Dr. G has an outstanding bedside manner and has been available for any questions or concerns that I have had. I would highly recommend him.

My facelift result is more than I could have ever expected. Dr. Gerstle was very clear with what I could expect and exceeded every expectation that my husband and I had. He also cured my migraines!

I recently had plastic surgery done by another MD which was disappointing. I had bad scarring of my upper arms with one incision splitting open, necessitating months of wound care. Another scar on my neck puckered skin on one side, making me self-conscious. I contacted Dr. Gristle after reviewing his credentials, feeling he may be able to reverse my problems. He corrected these issues and my skin is smooth and natural. The arm scar revision is healing well and I am very happy with Dr. Gerstle!
Dealing with difficult problems after cosmetic surgery can be challenging, but we welcome them and look forward to helping all patients achieve the results they deserve.

The entire process with Dr. Gerstle and his staff has been wonderful. At the recommendation of my primary care physician, I met with Dr. Gerstle. He took the time to listen to my concerns, what I wanted to achieve from the surgery, and confirmed that he could perform a breast reduction correct gigantomastia. Surgery went well without complication. Two months after surgery, my silhouette and my well-being have remarkably improved. I am very pleased with my decision to undergo the procedure.

Knowledgeable, straightforward and amazing results

I had four fist sized tattoos on my body.Two on my chest, and one on each shoulder blade.For personal reasons I needed to get rid of these tattoos. I tried laser removal for three consecutive years and they still wouldn't come out. I was starting to think there was nothing I could do. I finally met Dr. Gerstle. He confidently showed me how easy it would be to remove the tattoos and took care of it. He's the best. All other surgeons I got appointments with were too scared to tackle the procedure.
Tattoo removal is a passion of mine and through a thoughtful approach, we can usually remove a palm-sized tattoo in 2-3 sessions with less pain and downtime than traditional approaches.

An outstanding experience from start to finish. I felt time, sun and gravity had taken a toll on me and it showed most in my face. After discussing some choices we decided on a facial rejuvenation that included a chin lift, repair to droopy eyes and fat grafting to fill in and add some youthful contour to my face. He and his staff were so attentive in the follow up to my procedure. So much more than expected. He is an excellent surgeon with an outstanding staff.
Gender Confirmation Surgery is a passion within our practice and we welcome patients of all ages.

I went to Dr. Gerstle for labiaplasty, and I cannot say enough good things about him . He spent almost an hour and a half talking to us at the first consultation, and is at every appointment you have in the office to talk to you and answer questions. He is a fantastic surgeon, I had absolutely no bruising or swelling AT ALL. Additionally, he gives you his cell phone number and answered a call from us on Friday night at 10:30, then called again Saturday morning to make sure everything was okay.

After accompanying my partner to an Eyelid plastic surgery I decided to switch and use Dr. Gerstle for my Botox injections to the forehead. He is straight forward - explains in detail what he will do, what to expect, any possible side effects and was available by phone and email to answer any further questions- He takes his time when explaining what he will do - I never felt rushed - This will be my regular Dr. for both Botox injections and any future plastic surgery.

Throughout the years I have seen other plastic surgeons, but Dr. Gerstle has become my favorite. His emphasis on educating me regarding the expectations of my surgery, his accessibility, and his meticulous attention to detail have convinced me that I am receiving the best care possible. His staff is exceptional as well-always so warm and welcoming.

Dr. Gerstle and his professional team at Lexington Plastic Surgery went over and beyond to make the entire experience comfortable. I was absolutely pleased with the quality of care and the attentiveness to my concerns. Most importantly, I am thrilled with the results. I would highly recommend Dr. Gerstle to anyone.

Dr Gerstle is truly amazing. He makes you feel at ease, he takes the time to explain and draw what he will do, he does not make you feel rushed, and he has the best bed-side manners I have experienced. The visits easily take 1 hr as he takes the time to go over everything in great detail. He is a perfectionist, and very meticulous about symmetry. His staff is wonderful also.
Taking time and a personalized approach to patient concerns are hallmarks of Lexington Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
