Patient Testimonials

  • “I met Dr. Paul Feldman a decade ago when he did reconstructive surgery on my mother’s leg. Since that time, Dr. Feldman has not only become my family’s choice for all our plastic surgery needs, he’s also become a friend.

    Dr. Feldman was who I turned to when, after going through two pregnancies, I found myself feeling a little self-conscious about the “baby belt,” as I called it, around my middle. In 2004, I had liposuction sculpting done by Dr. Feldman and it not only changed my figure, it changed my self-esteem. Since that time, my mother has received a tummy tuck and my husband has had his nose repaired by Dr. Feldman.

    Dr. Feldman just recently performed my silicone breast augmentation. Once again, he helped me transform from mommy to marvelous! Dr. Feldman is the only doctor I would recommend for plastic surgery and amazing mommy makeovers.”

  • “I had an angioma pop-up on my eyelid, and my primary care physician referred me to Dr. Gronka due to the cosmetic considerations. I was nervous about having it removed because I have several gnarly scars from having some questionable moles removed a few years back. I’m two weeks past having my stitches out and there is no sign that anything was ever there. The results speak for themselves, but the service and care I received from Dr. Gronka and his staff is exceptional.”

  • “I just would like to say I am going through a Bi-Lateral Mastectomy with Reconstructive, I had my surgery on July 19th and Lord knows it’s been so hard, I have been back twice to the office, today I got my first saline injection, first of many. I just want to say how nice the Dr’s and the staff are. I was really having a hard emotional day yesterday and they made me feel so much better today. Just wanted to say thank you…”

  • “Thank you to Dr. Mel Stewart! I love my 2 “babies”! The doctor did an amazing job! Everyone loves them! Had many compliments and a lot are considering coming to Dr. Mel Stewart. I would definitely come back!”

  • “I want to share my experience at Advanced Aesthetics. I needed to have a small revision surgery preformed and I knew it would be a challenge for any plastic surgeon. I visited several surgeons and got a variety of promises and price ranges. On the recommendation of a friend, I visited A. Aesthetics. I was not particular about which surgeon I had a consultation with. I met Dr. Raniere and was expecting another promise. Surprisingly, after he examined me, he said, “I don’t know if I can get the results we both want, I will try my best, but we need to look at several grafting options.” This was the first time I heard this option. Plastic surgeons are highly trained professionals who make A’s in college, A’s in medical school, rise to the top of their peers in General Surgery residency, then take 3 or 4 more years in Plastic Surgery. I find this intimidating, but he let me participate in decisions about my surgery. More importantly to me, he wasn’t demeaning or judgemental about my prior poor choices. It has been almost two years and my outcome has improved with time. So, if you need any plastic surgery consultations for conditions ranging from scar revision to full body revision, I would recommend starting here.”

  • “Just thought I would brag on your office. Last year my wife went in for breast augmentation. From the first appointment for consultation to the last appointment it was a very pleasant experience. Dr. Rainere answered every question prior to surgery and on the day of surgery. The staff that took care of her before and after surgery were the best we could ask for. Thank you so much.”

  • “Had surgery with Dr Feldman on Thursday last week. My first surgery was with him 10 years ago at the old place in Riverdale. While that was a very smooth run operation, the new facility is amazing.

    My mom and niece are also former patients of Dr Feldman. In fact, they had surgery on the same day. We all have nothing but positive things to say about Advanced Aesthetics and Dr Feldman.”

  • “Dr. Raniere, Thank you for your artistic expertise and making my aesthetic vision a reality. I appreciate all your help and outstanding staff.”

  • “Cheryl, I appreciate your guidance and sincerity as I carefully decided who to choose as my rhinoplastic surgeon. Thank you for your reassurance and help.”

  • “Dr. Paul Feldman and his staff are extremely cordial but most importantly, professional. There was very little waiting time and a constant flow of useful and easing information. My questions were answered thoroughly and patiently. Dr. Feldman spent over an hour speaking to me on the phone regarding gynecomastia, his experience with treating other patients, the various different procedures for different extremities and of course the recovery procedure. From first-hand experience I can honestly say that I felt in safe hands the day of my procedure and by 12:00 P.M. that same day I was fully functional. It is now 1.5 weeks since my procedure and the results are simply incredible. I owe a special thanks to Dr. Paul Feldman and the staff at Advanced Aesthetics.”

  • “Dr. Gronka is not only highly accredited and highly experienced but has excellent “bedside manners.” He will put you at ease immediately as soon as he enters the room. He will give you very personalized attention, answer ALL of your questions and concerns and give you all the time you need. Dr. Gronka has a GREAT personality and is a pleasure to be around. I actually look forward to upcoming appointments with him so that I can visit and interact with, not only Dr. Gronka, but his very friendly and competent staff. They are ALL a joy to be around. Once you become Dr. Gronka’s patient YOU will have the same experience!!”

  • “I had a breast reduction 4 months ago. Dr. Raniere did a phenomenal job. He made me feel at ease from the first office visit through my post operative care. Kept my husband and I informed about my procedure. The service and care I received from Dr. Raniere and his staff was exceptional. It was a amazing experience from beginning to end.”

  • “In need of facial surgery I embarked on an exhaustive research endeavor to find THE surgeon that I was going to be comfortable with considering the fact that he or she was going to be “cutting” on my face. I finally concluded my research and the result clearly revealed one standout surgeon…the highly accredited and highly experienced Dr. Edward S. Gronka. I called and naturally had a number of questions that needed to be answered. I had the pleasure of speaking with Dr. Gronka’s VERY PROFESSIONAL cosmetic surgery coordinator…Lacie. She patiently answered each and every one of my questions to my satisfaction. I felt confident that my research had paid off and scheduled an appointment and am I ever GLAD THAT I DID!!! Now…months after surgery…if I had it to do over again, I would ABSOLUTELY choose Dr. Gronka without a moment’s hesitation. Also, let me add that Dr. Gronka’s entire staff is highly qualified and very professional.

    For you men out there that think facial “plastic surgery” is just for women…you honestly need to back up and reevaluate that line of thinking. For you guys that think BOTOX is strictly for women…you REALLY need to rethink that one. BOTOX works wonders and Dr. Gronka and his friendly, professional and highly experienced staff is who you want to talk to when it comes to everything from initial questions you may have about surgery to BOTOX injections and everything in between. As you can tell… I am very pleased with my experience… and YOU WILL BE TOO!!!”

  • “On August 7th, 2014, Dr. Feldman removed my implants, and I can’t thank him enough. I have felt so much better. Dr. Feldman, I want to thank you for being an amazing doctor in what you do, you have a great bedside manners before and after my surgery. I thank you and will always remember you and what you did and that’s doing my surgery. I live an hour and a half away from your office but it was worth the drive to let you do my surgery, you and your staff are amazing and to me better than in a big hospital. I thank you so much from my heart and will never forget you and your staff. Y’all are the best, so stay that way!”

  • “Dear Dr. Feldman, Words cannot express how thankful we are for you and your skills and willingness to put our daughter back together again. We know it was a sacrifice for you since you had worked all day and had to work the next day. You are a very gifted and compassionate doctor and God has provided a miracle for Jessie through your gifted hands and knowledge. Thank you so very much!”
