Excellent, Talented Surgeon - Dr. Fernau performed a rhinoplasty, septoplasty, and otoplasty on me. I am extremely happy with the result. In addition to being extremely talented, he is also very big on patient safety and I would recommend him 1000%. The office staff were always very kind and willing to answer any questions. More

Dr. Fernau and his staff are amazing! In June 2018 I had a no drain lipoabdominoplasty and the results are better than I ever could have imagined. During the consultation, I was given the options based on what I wanted to accomplish and Dr. Fernau was very honest with me in which procedures would get me the best results. In deciding to go through with the tummy tuck, Sheila was a wealth of knowledge in going over the paper work and preoperative procedures. On the day of the surgery at Trinity Hospital (and their staff was amazing too!), I was nervous, but knew I was in good hands because of how thorough and meticulous Dr. Fernau was before we went into the room for surgery. After surgery I couldn't believe how good I felt and already looked! The recovery process was much better than expected (I never took a pain pill!). I was walking pretty much normal after a week and back to normal activities within 6 weeks. My life has changed completely due to this procedure and the wonderful results thanks to Dr. Fernau. I am continuing to workout and watch my diet and after 5 months post-op I am down 20 pounds and look like a whole knew person! I highly recommend Dr. Fernau and his staff. They are truly AMAZING!

27 YO Mom of 2 Labiaplasty - Dr. Fernau and his staff are excellent! He takes alot of time to go over the procedure with you and makes sure all of your questions are answered. He recently did my Labiaplasty procedure and I will hopefully be going back for a BBL in the future. I rate him and his team a 10 out of 10 for sure! More

Dr Fernau and his staff are wonderful from the first consultation to the surgery to the follow up appointments. I felt comfortable asking questions and he is very thorough in preparation for the procedure. He gave me back not only my quality of life following the accident, but gave me back my facial appearance and confidence in myself that I had lost. Excellent surgeon and fantastic staff. More

Turning 41 this year and being active my whole life I started to realize areas that were always lean began to have fat deposits. I began to look for a remedy. I found Doctor Fernau on an internet search of top plastic surgeons in Pittsburgh. After reading hundreds of positive reviews I decided to make an appointment. When I first walked in the office I was greeted by his staff. During my consultation I found Doctor Fernau to be really down to earth. He answered every question I had and made suggestions of what my options were. I decided to have abdominal etching, liposuction of my love handles, and some fat grafting using the Hydrosolv form of liposuction. The day of surgery I was visited by Dr. Fernau and went over each step of the operation. During this time I asked Dr. Fernau if some of the fat taken could be placed into my calves. With out hesitation Dr. Fernau made this happen. I'm currently 6 weeks post op and couldnt be more satisfied. He's a skilled surgeon, but most importantly he honestly makes you feel like you matter. Any one looking to have any type of cosmetic/reconstructive surgery Dr. Fernau should not only be first on your list, but the only one on your list. More

There are no words to describe Doctor Fernau & his undeniable intelligence that makes him the best at what he does. I’ve had 4 procedures in the past 20 years and I’m sure God himself led me to this man that is a perfectionist with his work including his bedside manner. He’s amazing, thoughtful & so caring. 5 stars are not sufficient enough.. he deserves 1000. His staff, like himself are just incredible. It is the perfect place when seeking a plastic surgeon. More

Omgggggg!!!! I was SUPER hesitant about getting any sort of injections in my lip because of my previous experience done by another Physician. My first time having this done was not the greatest. I had a lot of discomfort, and my upper lip was turned up like a duck. THIS time there was no pain, no duck lip, they are fuller, they don’t look like TOO much. They look freaking PERFECT!!!!! I cant even contain my excitement. Dr. Fernau and his nurses are SO, SO sweet, they make you feel SO comfortable! I don’t think I could have had a better experience ! I wish I could give ya’ll a million stars!! ?The BEST!!!! More

Some More on Top - It was immediately evident that Dr. Fernau is a doctor who cares deeply about his work and his patients, and his commitment to staying abreast of the latest developments in his field was obvious. Most of my time was spent with Sherry and Bonnie, a mother / daughter team of technician / nurse who both were unbelievably invested in and committed to the success of my procedure, as well as my comfort and satisfaction. Perhaps the most accurate and succinct way to describe them is to say that they sincerely care about their patients. You can trust these folks. More

I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Fernau and his staff! From the moment I walked in, I felt comfortable and excited for my procedure. The front office lady, Michelle, was very kind, and clear in explaining the procedure and everything I needed to know. Sharon, the office manager, was very welcoming as well! The waiting room was very relaxing and I didn't even have to wait long at all. Dr. Fernau was amazing, patient, and genuine - he explained everything about the procedu...re, everything I needed to know about my recovery, and I was out of there within 45 minutes! I felt very cared for in this office and can't wait to go back for more work!! I really appreciated how everyone there made sure to educate me on the recovery process. I would recommend this as one of the top offices in Pittsburgh, as I had such a great experience there. I'm very happy with the results of my procedure. My skin is healing quickly and I'm so glad I made the decision to go see Dr. Fernau. I feel more confident now that I had my procedure!!

My experience with Dr. Fernau and his staff was absolutely incredible. I had Pyloric Stenosis as an infant, which years later has resulted as deeply puckered scars throughout my abdomen. Dr. Fernau suggested hydrasolve liposuction and my results have been life-changing. The post-op recovery was quick and painless and there is no visible scarring as a result of this procedure. Dr. Fernau and his staff are incredibly helpful, honest, informative, and dedicated to providing their patients with a smooth and satisfactory experience. I cannot recommend him enough, he has absolutely changed my life! More

50ish in Job Competitive World with Neograft and Lipo Life Changing - Dr Fernau is exceptional in every way. His staff is the same. Great, great people My friend referred my for Neograft hair transplant and Dr Fernau and staff came through 100%. After 2 years all of my "patches" are gone. I can swim with confidence and am now on my third job promotion. Life changing experience for sure. I also use their hair products and get PRP injections. Use the laser cap , as well. About one year ago I came back for liposuction of my chest, abs and love handles and again another great result. Dr Fernau used hydrasolve lipo and he said it leaves things smooth and that is true. I went from a 38 to a 32. I feel great. His staff also recommend practical life eating and a more "natural" approach. I cut out out diet pop and what a difference. His staff are smart and sweet and always available for questions. Highest rating for Dr Fernau and his staff. More

I have been to Dr.Fernau's office for Juvederm injections in my lips on three separate occasions and both he and his staff have been fabulous every single time. I came to get juvederm fearfully after a bad experience at a local and very popular medical spa that left me with botched looking lips that had to be fixed and dissolved. I wish I would have found Accent on Body before then! Dr.Fernau and his staff injected my lips in a truly artful and careful manner!

Awesome surgeon! Has a very caring bedside manner. He is very meticulous about his work. I've had several procedures and trust his skills as a surgeon. Staff is caring too! At least call for a consultation and he will answer any questions you have thoroughly without judgment. I was scared to go show some stranger my body issues but he made me feel that's its normal for people to want to improve themselves. He is very professional and loves what he does. From eyelift, rhinoplasty, dermabrasion, buttlift to liposuction, I've loved all my results! More

I am a 43 year old female that was looking to liven up my sad AA breasts by Christmas 2016. I had saline implants, over the muscle from 1997 to 2010. Went very natural for 6 years and decided I needed to feel curvy again. Foud Dr. Fernau online. He was however, the second plastic surgeon I consulted with...the first place I looked-into felt like they were selling me a pair of tires, generalizing, glazed over everything instead of worrying about my unique wants for my unique body.Dr. Fernau AND AWESOME Staff were beyond professional. I was there for 2 hours discussing every detail until I was completely confident. I went under the muscle, 415cc, Gummy Bear(cohesive gel silcone) 5th generation, and the most safe on the market. Aesthetic wise and comfort, Dr.Fernau has an eye for art and plenty of advice for pre, during, post Op. You can't help but notice the inviting, classy interior design of each Office. Not a scary experience at all and I have terrible anxiety. The Staff is that cool, calm, and confident. With all their teamwork, I had the surgery 14 days from 1st consult appt.

Excellent is not enough For Dr James, he deserves more. One and a half year ago I have had Lower lid surgery Blepharoplasty, under a surgeon who rewind my lower lids by taking extra skin, the eyelid is turned outward away from the eyeball. I suffered doing 3 unsuccessful correction surgeries before I get to know Dr James. When I decided to go for the 4th surgery through Dr Fernau I did not have the hope that he will be able to give me the normal look I dream of. My conclusion after the procedure he made to me, I can not describe the happiness I am in whenever I look at the mirror. This is enough to say He is marvelous .

I am 24 years old and I have always had difficulty breathing due to a trauma that occurred when I was a child. Not only did I have trouble breathing, I was very self-conscious because of the appearance of my nose due to the trauma. I began researching for doctors and came across Dr. Fernau in Pittsburgh, PA. I decided to book a consultation with him because of all the excellent reviews I read and his continued education. During my consultation Dr. Fernau was very personable, intelligent and took his time explaining to me my condition and his plan to correct my deviated septum and to improve the appearance of my nose. He made me feel very much at ease and after the consultation, I knew right away he was the one I wanted to do my septorhinoplasty. Only a few days later I booked my surgery. Sheila and Sharon helped me get the exact date I wanted even though his schedule was very busy. (Because he is AWESOME.) After my surgery Dr. Fernau gave me his personal cell phone number to contact him if needed. During my recovery I texted him and he responded immediately with compassion and the information I needed. After week one I was able to get my internal splints out and I could breathe better than I ever had in my life, and I was brought to tears. After two weeks I was allowed to remove my nasal cast and the appearance of my nose was AMAZING. My nose was very natural looking and fit perfectly with my face. I am currently 3 weeks postop and I can confidently say that my choice to have this surgery was life changing. If you want a surgeon who will do amazing work and who makes you feel like family, Dr. Fernau is your guy. I cannot brag enough about him and his staff. They are all so knowledgeable, helpful and warm. More

My sincere THANK YOU to Dr. Fernau and all of his staff for their wonderful work and the compassionate care I received before, during, and after my complex procedure. As a physician myself, I picked Dr. Fernau to do my procedure. Why? Not only is Dr.Fernau double boarded in ENT and Cosmetic/Plastic surgery, he is also the only listed physician in the area who is a member of the Rhinoplasty Association. He travels the world learning and teaching other medical professionals i...n this field of medicine. Doc is so kind, as are all the staff. He is very proud of his work, as he should be...... he literally performed a miracle on re-building the bridge/tip of my nose which was essentially absent as a result of a genetic birth defect. It not only looks great, but I can breathe and smell so much better now! I highly recommend Dr.Fernsu! Five Stars for sure! More

I am 22 years old, and my husband and myself had been shopping for the right doctor to perform my Brazilian Butt Lift. We had been to every office in Pittsburgh, and saved Dr. Fernau's office last, because I was highly impressed with his previous work in Brazil. His consult was so outstanding, that we scheduled my surgery before leaving his office. The technology he used during his consult was the best I had seen, not to mention I could really tell that he was passionate about his work. He referred to what he did as "art" instead of surgery. The fact that the doctor himself was there to answer all my question really impressed me, since all of my other consult's were with an LPN or a doctor's consult manager. I was so nervous, and Dr. Fernau literally made me feel so confident by the time of my appointment date. He even gave me his personal cell phone number if I had any questions before or after! What surgeon do you know, does that? He told me at the consult he sees his patients as his children, and he was not lying! He was always there to answer any questions or give any suggestions, and even supplied a health routine (with vitamins, probiotics, and dietary suggestions) for me to follow prior and after surgery as to see that I will have top notch results and to help my body heal faster. During my research on Dr. Fernau I was impressed to see his work on patient safety, his advanced education, and the world wide recognition his name holds in the plastic surgery world. He is one of the only doctor's who has the advanced technology of the HydroSolve, that he used to take out the fat in my abdominal and hip rolls and place into my buttocks. The HydroSolve alone, if you are looking into this surgery, and you don't know about it; please do yourself the favor and do some research on how advanced this machine is and how lucky you'd be to have your surgery done using this machine. The HydroSolve machine combined with Dr. Fernau's excellent skills and extremely caring and professional staff; I am beyond happy with my experience and even happier with my results. I love how he sculpted my body! In fact my husband and I decieded to also commit to having my boob job, as well as laser hair removal done at Dr. Fernau's office as well. I truely feel like family when I come to his office, and each visit feels so comforting, yet professional. After consulting with each plastic surgeon in Pittsburgh, PA I am so happy that I found and stuck with Dr. Fernau. Hands down best experience ever. They made sure I was confident, happy, healthy, and most importantly safe from beginning to end of my BBL procedure. 10 out of 10 stars awesome! More

An amazing surgeon and also a very nice, kind person. He corrected my carpal tunnel issues and I've never had a problem with it since! His office is beautiful and his staff is equally lovely. And the aesthetic aspect of his work is not only beautiful, but natural--he makes people look like themselves, he just enhances what is already there. I've also seen him, in the case of a patient who had a severe physical affliction--a large exterior tumor on their head--transform them into a healthy-looking person, giving them the gift of living a normal life.

5’5, 210 Lbs., 50, BA, 565cc HP Sientra - Pittsburgh, PA - He really takes pride in his work. - - In order to make it easier for those like me, I have tried to put all the key words in my title to make searching for a story on a plus-size, older woman’s experience easier to find. Before I start, I just want to say thank you to all the lovely and brave ladies that have shared your stories. I’ve been reading and reading and re-reading so many. I’m finally sitting down to share mine. My story is similar to others that I have read. I never had big breasts. Especially in my 20s, I was 110 lbs. with an A cup size i.e. no boobs. I was always trying to hide my chest with ruffles on bikini tops, padded bras, and loose tops. As I gained weight, I did gain some in my cup size but mostly in my band size. At my highest weight, 274, I was a 44d with my stomach sticking out further than my boobs. A problem I still have at 210, 42c.In 2014, I had gastric bypass surgery and lost 90 lbs. While I was reading the WLS forums the inkling of PS started stirring. Tummy tucks, BAs and BLs. I was down to 184, then started gaining weight over the last 4 or 5 months, up 40 lbs. When my clothes started getting tight I started stepping on the scale and was so mad at what I gained back, I then started journaling my food and exercising – something I never did faithfully. I lost 14 lbs. and STOPPED. I’ve been at the same weight for two months! I can’t take it. I don’t know if it’s a stall – long stalls are common in WLS patients – or if it’s something else. If it’s just a weight-loss stall then I don’t know what to do. Anyway, earlier this year I started thinking about BA and researched online and found two PS that seemed to be candidates for consultations. I then spoke with my husband who was totally surprised that this was something that I’d ever want. Of course, he’d love it, lol. I told him that if PS was more prevalent and I was more confident back when I was in my 20s, I would have had it done. He totally supports whatever I want to do and has always said he loves me like I am. He is the only one who knows that I’m going to do this. I have started what I call “double-bubbling it”. I wear a padded-increase-your-cup-size-by-2 bra with an underwire regular bra on top that is a cup size larger than what I am. It’s ridiculous, but what I need to do to start transitioning into my after-BA body without it being too noticeable. I was so nervous to make that call to set-up my first consultation. More

I can't begin to thank Dr.James Fernaus staff for my wonderful procedure today !!! I loved how they made me feel welcome and at ease . I am so excited to see my ending results!! I also can't thank Sherry Goodman for getting me in there and walking me through the procedure and making me feel comfortable also Melissa for making me laugh .I'd recommend Dr.James Fernau to anyone that would want plastic or cosmetic surgery. I had no trouble finding it and I enjoyed the company , I am excited to be able to get my ears pierced again :) I trust Dr.Fernau aka Steve Jobs Lol ,and the staff to help me in my future if I need it I can't thank you guys Enough !!!

Dr. Fernau is beyond amazing. He takes as much time as needed to answer any question and even goes into full detail as to do one thing as opposed to the other. Never was in a rush and didn't hesitate to answer and questions. His office is very welcoming and the staff is amazing. All very kind and full of smiles. Sheila goes above and beyond to make sure things are understandable and ready to go. Even when she's feeling ill, she still manages to be there for you. Edie (forgive me if I spell your name wrong) made me feel so comfortable. After my surgery I guess I was wondering where she was an why didn't she come home with me. I love the staff and the doctor. They make you feel like family. I had breast augmentation and I am feeling hardly any pain. I am glad I chose this team form my surgery. Thank you Dr. Fernau and your wonderful staff. More

I can't thank Dr. Fernau enough for my beautiful nose. He stepped up to the plate of fixing my collapsing nose due to two previous botched surgeries when no other doctor would. When I look in the mirror now tears come to my eyes because of how perfect my nose looks. I've always since a young girl hated my nose and now I'm in love with it... I would recommend him to anyone, and the fact I'm breathing out of both sides of my nose as I'm writing this makes me love it even more. More

Everything about my experience with Dr. Fernau and his staff was EXCEPTIONAL. I had my first consultation for a revision rhinoplasty and septoplasty in June, and underwent the surgery at the end of July. After visiting several other plastic surgeons in the area, I chose Dr. Fernau without hesitation because of his knowledge, confidence, experience, and the excellent service and care of his staff. My results are truly something amazing, and something I thought I would never get to experience.

My husband had his first consultation with Dr. Fernau in June 2015, and underwent a revision rhinoplasty and septoplasty at the end of July. We both can only say wonderful things about his experiences with not only Dr. Fernau himself, but his staff, the recovery, and the surgery results. Several years ago, my husband had his first septoplasty and rhinoplasty, which was performed by his ENT, and ultimately left him with a "botched' result. After visiting several other plastic surgeons in the Pittsburgh area, we just couldn't seem to find a doctor who was 100% positive he or she could fix the original surgery results to my husband's preference. Finally,after visiting Dr. Fernau, we both felt so confident with the decision to move forward with the surgery. Dr. Fernau was very honest and frank about the issues my husband was dealing with, but assured us that we could expect exceptional results. After a smooth recovery and constant communication with Dr. Fernau and his staff, we finally got to see the results, which were more than we expected. The issues with my husband's nose that several other doctors seemed sure were "unfixable" are drastically improved. Both my husband and I highly recommend Dr. Fernau, and with utmost confidence. - Cara Doneluck More

Today I had my first appointment with Dr. Fernau and it was for lip injections. I have been to many other businesses for lip injections before but have felt my wants were not met by the injectors due to poor technique and/or lack of knowledge in regards to products that can be used for the result I seek. Dr. Fernau was very pleasant, along with the other staff in the office. He made sure that he understood my expectations and ensured I was comfortable throughout the entire process. He had told me that in the medical field, especially in his speciality, that "tenacity is important" and I couldn't agree more. He had went beyond my expectations from using products that have never been used on me before from others, ensuring I was pleased with the outcome, and even providing a discount/special. His technique was one of impeccable skill and I had left the office with beautiful results instantly. In the past, I had left other offices with considerable swelling and unnatural looking lips. I was confident enough to be seen publicly immediately after the injections. He insisted upon a follow up to ensure I was satisfied and guaranteed a free fix if I was unsatisfied. I am looking forward to seeing him next week and highly suggest him for his ability to create aesthetically pleasing (and lasting) results. More

I have never had a bad experience at Dr. Fernau's office. All of his employees have always been extremely kind to me, and Dr. Fernau himself has shown me interest and care. My skin concerns involve Cindy Scozio in particular, who has worked with me over the years to treat my acne and acne scars. She has just recently performed a new treatment on me, which I loved for both my acne and scarring. The microneedle combined with Regenica made my acne disappear completely for a solid month, and I had multiple red spots that completely went away. Additionally, the acne scars that have been present for years, though severely diminished since seeing Cindy, were even further reduced by 50-75% depending on the spot. I was also happy that no numbing was needed; my forehead was minimally painful, and my cheeks didn't hurt a bit. There was only one day that I had to go without wearing makeup, and after that you couldn't even tell I had anything done! It was perfect to get done right before I went to the beach. I have been seeing Cindy for 3 years now, and I've never had an unpleasant experience! More

I recently had a rhinoplasty for cartilage structural problems, breathing problems, and a shape I did not like. I researched local Pittsburgh surgeons who were highly rated. During my research, Dr. Fernau's name continued to come up in my searches as a credible surgeon who was highly qualified. I gave his office a call and the receptionist was open to answer all the questions that I had. At my consultation, Dr. Fernau was incredibly patient and gave me 2 hours of his time just to step through all of my questions, concerns, and fears. I have never had a doctor give me that much time in an appointment! The most telling part about the entire business, is that every staff member was genuine. Every person in the office took a personal interest in me and openly discussed their experiences. As far as the surgery itself, Dr. Fernau was so passionate and meticulous in his work, he took special pains to ensure that my result was going to change my life and, more specifically, my breathing. And because of this procedure being done so well, I have breathed fully for the first time in my life. And externally, the shape of my nose reflects the way I feel. Since the surgery, he has answered the phone day and night with any post-op questions that I've had, and took time to give me tips and suggestions to ensure an efficient and painless recovery.It is inspiring to meet someone who is working because he loves his career and strives for nothing less than perfection in every patient. That meticulousness is reflected in his work on me. Thank you!! Highly highly highly recommended. More

I recently had a rhinoplasty/septoplasty through Dr. Fernau for cartilage structural problems, difficulty breathing and sleeping, and a shape I did not like. I researched various surgeons in the Pittsburgh area who were well-qualified in medical as well as cosmetic surgery. Finding Dr. Fernau was a blessing. Many of the doctors offices I called gave me a bad impression: they were insincere, or treated me as another number to add to their books, or simply rushed me into the process. During my research, however, Dr. Fernau's name continued to appear as a well-reviewed, credible surgeon who was highly qualified. This was evident in the initial phone call I made to the office. Knowing very little about the process, the receptionist stayed on the phone with me for a while to answer all of my questions and to share her own experiences. This type of care continued into my first consultation, where Dr. Fernau spent 2 hours with me, answering questions, calming my doubts, giving me all the information I needed, but never pushing me to become his patient. He left the decision to me and made sure I was well-informed to make it. This type of sincerity was shown by every staff member I came across. Each took the time to learn who I was, what I was hoping to get, and to share their own experiences and prior fears. When it came time for surgery, Dr. Fernau met with me and immediately calmed any last-minute doubts in my mind. He was so passionate and focused that I became excited to see the work he would accomplish! He was meticulous, perfectionistic, and took incredible strides to ensure that his work product would be his best. My results are astounding--far beyond what I ever expected. I now have full oxygen through my nose (the first time I had ever experienced that, as I had only 10% through one side), I now sleep through the night for the first time in my life, the fracture in my cartilage and deviated septum are fixed, and it looks stunning on the outside! He is not only meticulous in his medical work, but he is a total perfectionist in his cosmetic work. His bedside manners were outstanding, his post-op attentiveness was great, and he answers the phone day and night for any questions I have. He still takes the time to give me tips and suggestions to ensure an efficient and painless recovery. Upon my return to the office after surgery, he was just as excited as I was to reveal the results. He lives and breathes this work and I am beyond thrilled to have found him.Dr. Fernau strives for perfection in every patient he works with. I highly recommend looking into Dr. Fernau and his staff for whatever procedure you are considering. I am honored to have been the patient of Dr. Fernau and I give him an A++++++! More

I am SO impressed by Dr. Fernau's work. Having no idea what to really expect, I searched through a ton of reviews to make sure that I was making a good decision on having Dr. Fernau perform my rhinoplasty/septoplasty procedure. After the thorough consultation (which, by the way, the amount of time that he spent talking with me was unlike any other doctor I have ever encountered), I was confident that Dr. Fernau was not only a perfectionist (something I absolutely wanted for somebody who would be working on my nose, both opening up my nasal passages as well as ensuring that my nose looked better than it had prior to the surgery), but also incredibly passionate about his work and incredibly skillful. I am always skeptical of reviews, but I could not believe the amount of positive feedback and world-recognition Dr. Fernau has. These two things ensured that he would do a good job. Now, almost 3 weeks post-op, I could not be happier with the work he has done. I am breathing better than I ever have and the recovery period was painless as he provided all of the medicine I needed. Any questions I had, I texted and called him and he was patient and helpful in his responses and answers. And my nose looks perfect! Due to a fracture and a severely deviated septum, I had a slight curve to my nose from the profile and the tip of my nose was rounded due to my Italian ethnicity. Post-op, I have the cutest nose - I can't stop looking in the mirror!I can confirm (as well as my sister who had the same procedure) that Dr. Fernau is an outstanding surgeon and an expert at his work. Patient, thorough, detail-oriented, a perfectionist and one of the best at his profession.

Dr. Fernau and his assistant Sherry Goodman performed a NeoGraft hair transplant on me nine months ago placing 1500 grafts mostly on my frontal hairline extending my hairline several centimeters towards my brow and my results are incredible. I actually have a full head of hair. I could not be any happier. The entire office staff was friendly and extremely professional. Dr. Fernau and Sherry explained everything in detail before my transplant and answered every question I had after surgery. I had access to both of their personal cell phones. They used a process called platelet rich plasma to enhance the take of my grafts and I believe I have 100% take of all of my grafts. I could not be happier and if I could give them 10 stars I would.

I recently had a rhinoplasty through Dr. Fernau and his medical staff. During my research process, he appeared in my searches time after time and the reviews spoke highly of his professionalism. When I consulted with other surgeon offices, they rushed me through phone calls, were unprofessional, or simply seemed to want my business, like I was a "number," not a patient. On my first phone call to Dr. Fernau's office, the receptionist answered my questions and took the time to describe her experiences with me. At my consultation, Dr. Fernau spent 2 hours with me, going through his experiences, answering all of my questions and allaying my fears. He discussed thoroughly the medical, cosmetic, and lifestyle benefits to the procedure, but ultimately left the decision up to me. He never pushed for my business, but was excited to potentially be a part of my decision to go through with the procedure. After the first consult, I was in. I was most excited that I would breathe better than I ever had in my life. This was a problem that I did not know was so bad until I noticed how improved my breathing had become post-procedure. A few days after he performed the operation, I breathed in through my nose, a full breathe, for the first time since I can remember. And as the days go by, my energy level is steadily increasing, which I can attribute to my ability to now get full oxygen through my nose. As far as the surgery itself, Dr. Fernau has incredible bedside manners and took car More

Nine months ago Dr Fernau performed a facelift and a forehead left and a neck left and eyelid surgery and my results are amazing. My friends tell me I look 15 years younger. He also performed laser resurfacing of my scars free of charge and you cannot see any scars on my face lift incisions. I am extremely impressed by his nurses and staff as they have treated me so well and answered all of my questions. Dr Fernau keeps up with the latest technology and I am going to have a NeoGraft no incision hair transplant performed by him and his staff. Also he has his own aesthetician and I have gone to her for many micro dermabrasion's and she has placed me on a skin care regimen which I really like. More

Throughout the years, I have had many skin procedures with Cindy- including chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and Fraxel treatments. I have always had acne prone skin with many issues. I now keep myself on a maintenance schedule to never let my skin return to the way it was. My skin has never looked better in my entire life. I constantly get asked what I do with my skin that makes it so glowy and fresh looking! I could never repay you for your efforts and giving me the confidence I now have! Thank you, Cindy, for saving me!My experience with both Cindy and Dr. Fernau has been nothing short of wonderful. In 2011, I had a Rhinoplasty with Dr. Fernau. My results exceeded my expectations! Both pre and post surgical care was wonderful. Having Sherry, his surgical tech, with me on the day of my surgery helped with my anxiety and nervousness.

About two years ago, I made some significant lifestyle changes for my health and well-being. One great benefit was that my body weight returned to normal as I lost over 30 pounds and became very fit. I have stayed committed to my new healthy lifestyle. However, even after I was back to looking and feeling good, I had an extremely difficult time getting rid of fat in certain stubborn areas. The fat stored in my lower abdomen, hips and lower back seemed like it was never going to go away. On a recommendation, I flew from way out west to have the ?Aqualipo? liposuction procedure performed by Dr. Fernau. I am extremely happy with the results and feel rejuvenated. The fat in those stubborn areas is completely gone. Dr. Fernau is very meticulous and a perfectionist. Sheila and the rest of his staff are very friendly. I felt confident and relaxed the entire time. Highly recommend. More

Dr. Fernau is a wonderful doctor and person! He is the best I have been to by far. He corrected a mistake that another physician made to my tear trough area that I went around with for two years that apparently no one else could correct. He took so much time and care with me to ensure that I looked my very best. The job that he did was amazing - his work is beautiful and he definitely strives for perfection. He and his staff were the most wonderful people- professional, very knowledgeable, and so friendly and warm. Everyone was so attentive with me. Dr. Fernau even gave me FREE laser treatment around my eye area and continues to do so. He went above and beyond in every way with me, and I wouldn't want to go to anyone but him. He uses the most current treatments and techniques that I have seen anywhere. Between the treatment I received from he and his staff and the immediate results that I got, I was crying. That's how grateful I was for how good they made me look and feel. Finally after two years, it was fixed. Thank you again Dr. Fernau and staff!!! More

I have been seeing Cindy Scozio for a year now, and since I have received microdermabrasion treatments regularly.

I have had three of these treatments so far, and I am almost ready to finally be comfortable sans makeup. My friends and family say that my face "glows" now, and my boyfriend has noticed that I have more self confidence.

His staff are very professional and made me feel comfortable as they have had procedures done themselves and made me feel at ease with my decision and informed me of what to expect during my recovery process. After having my augmentation, Dr. Fernau made sure I was absolutely perfect. He had me utilize a surgical bra and topifoam to assist in the healing process. It is six weeks later and I absolutely love my results and couldn’t be more pleased. He is also lasering my scars until they are completely gone for FREE!!

I have had multiple treatments, including microdermabrasion and facials, all performed by licensed aesthetician and certified laser technician, Cindy Scozio. When somebody decides to spend the money and put one’s trust in the hands of a person who will hopefully make an improvement in one’s appearance, and thus in one’s self confidence, the best thing to hear is that the practitioner, herself, has undergone these same procedures. I felt immediately comfortable when I first met Cindy at Dr. Fernau’s office. She is eager to answer any and all questions, and give details of her personal experience with the procedures. She never promised what she could not deliver (perfection where there were acne scars) but did promise significant improvement, which did actually result! She is skilled and knowledgeable, friendly and professional. I am never pressured to purchase more than I want, but I am provided with information about up-coming specials and packages routinely offered by the office. This has allowed me to keep my skin looking better than ever, and to keep people thinking I’m at least 10 years younger than my actual age! There is no substitute for experience in the field of aesthetic procedures. I would highly recommend Cindy Scozio’s skillful eye, professional judgment, and steady hand to anybody seeking better skin care. Thanks, Cindy! More

After living many hard man-years, my face was left showing large cratering pores and deep scars. I had spend many dollars on info-mercial products and over-the-counter creams, but none of them seemed to work. I decided to “go for it” and seek microderm-abrasion. Three treatments later I feel like a new man. My skin has never flourished with such stunning brilliance. I often find myself staring into the mirror now adoring the brilliant complexion I never had. Cindy’s warm hands and charming personality make the experience almost supernatural. I can walk into any rave now feeling confident and ready to dance. In fact, I’ve actually noticed that my stamina has increased. I used to tire early in the night due to my low self-esteem because of my complexion. That has all changed now! I am even okay with wearing open-toed shoes, something I never thought I would do. Thanks guys for making my inner me come back to life! More

I couldn't be happier with my decision of choosing Dr. James Fernau for my abdominal/flanks liposuction.Even though I work out regularly (I was a fitness instructor for many years) and live a healthy lifestyle, I struggled with getting rid of fat around my midsection. I tried different non-surgical procedures that gave me no results. It wasn't until I met with Dr. James Fernau that I felt confident that I would finally get the results I'd been hoping for. Not only did he have the eye and extensive knowledge to recommend the best approach to achieve my goal; but he carefully took the time to listen to my needs which resulted in the natural look I was wishing for. I'm so happy with the results! With my newly sculpted return to my more feminine shape, I've regained the self-confidence that I had lost over time.Beside Dr. James Fernau's expertise, my main reason for choosing him to do my surgery was the feeling I got of a kind, genuine person that truly cares for making a difference in my life.

I work in the cosmetics industry and have had Botox treatments for over 20 years (initially for headaches). Later, as I become hum, "more mature", I noticed Botox helped me in other ways. Although I adore the physicians I have reviewed for Botox thus far, I wanted a different, objective perspective by a physician that specializes in Botox and fillers. I am very glad I did. I have wanted a "lift" for my deep set eyes as well as symmetry and Dr. James Fernau achieved it! I am so happy! Not only this, he took pictures we reviewed together and Dr. James Fernau thoroughly studied my features as an artist does a canvas and discussed my options. Although I have used Botox for such a long time, he still explained every motion and use of my facial muscle and how the injections will help me achieve the results I was hoping for. Now, seven days later, I love my results! My small parting gift was a nice touch. Thanks Doc! More

Had my first cosmetic surgery with Dr. James Fernau ever last May 14.I was literally flat chested and wanted 700cc. I ended up getting 650cc. It was just a month and a week but my breast looks phenomenal! It dropped dramatically in a very short period of time! I am very happy. And the fact that its been only a month, I can't wait now for the ultimate result!!!Beyond perfection! One of the best surgeons around the Coraopolis area and probably in the US! Thanks to all staff members as well! Very Polite and professional! Kudos! More
