At Dr. James Fernau's Accent on Body Aesthetic Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa, we offer Pittsburgh patients a comfortable and relaxed setting with state-of-the-art technology in cosmetic surgery. It is our desire you leave our practice feeling more confident and knowledgeable about plastic surgery and the benefits it can provide to improve your quality of life. We invite you to learn more about Dr. Fernau and the services and procedures we offer.
Dr. Fernau blends exceptional surgeon skill with an artistic eye to produce stunning outcomes for his patients. Some of his specialties include breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, facelift surgery, liposuction and body contouring. He also offers a liquid facelift using a combination of wrinkle treatments, including BOTOX and injectable fillers, for patients desiring a nonsurgical approach.
Learn about the power of reconstructive surgery with one of Dr. Fernau's landmark cases: Tatjana, a ten-year-old girl from Russia, presented with one of the world's largest malignant melanomas (the largest at the time). In an operation that took over 28 hours, the tumor was completely removed and her scalp, which was largely dominated by the mass, was reconstructed. Fourteen years later, Tatjana remains cancer-free!
Pittsburgh plastic surgeon, Dr. James Fernau, creates a patient experience like none other. Our plastic surgery office combines exceptional surgeon skill, a compassionate staff, and an award-winning surgery center so that our patients walk away looking and feeling their absolute best.
I had decided for my birthday that I was going to gift myself some Botox! After doing as millennials do (i.e. going to Google and Reddit to research and find recommendations), I chose Dr. Fernau's office. I was not looking for the cheapest or closest option -- I wanted the best. I liked the idea of a facial plastic surgeon taking care of my Botox -- I didn't think I would be pressured to do more than I was comfortable, and I wanted natural results. From inquiry to scheduling to the actual appointment, everything was easy and the staff is so kind! Sheila performed my procedure, and she walked me through what to expect before, during, and after the procedure. I'm only two days post-procedure, and I can already tell a difference -- it's very subtle, I feel like I still completely look like me, but refreshed. 10/10 recommend a birthday gift to yourself of Botox, and 10/10 recommend seeing Sheila, Dr. Fernau, and team! I will definitely be returning!

I looked up so many Plastic Surgeons and Dr. Fernau was the one I had chosen. I found him on Instagram. Check out his work!!!! It’s amazing what he does! I got breast augmentation and a umbilicoplasty done. Let’s say I was so nervous talking about what breast size I wanted and trying different ones but Sherry and Amber you girls are down to earth, which made me feel very comfortable. You girls helped me what size I was looking for. I’m very thankful!!!!! Dr. Fernau, Sherry, Alexa, and David, I am very pleased with the outcome of my surgery. Your knowledge & skills gave me a very natural fullness look just like I requested. I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for the wonderful care you have given me. Thank you Dr. Fernau, Sherry, Amber, Cindy, Shelia, Alexa, and David. No one could ask for a better health-care team, you have been absolutely amazing!

Dr. Fernau, Sherry, and the entire staff are spectacular. I went for the NeoGraft procedure and could not happier. The procedure itself was like walking into a spa, recovery was a breeze, and I am already thrilled with the results. Sherry is an artist at what she does and the best you’ll find in the area. Furthermore, Dr. Fernau and his staff make your safety and care a top priority. I highly recommend this team.
