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 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

22 Years Old, Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure - Best Experience Ever! - Pittsburgh, PA - He truely cares about each one of his patients as if we are one of his children.

I recently went to Dr. Fernau for laser skin resurfacing. Because of aging , my skin wasn't so up-to-par. I've been looking for solutions such as different skin care items but nothing ever worked as well as I wanted it to. On a whim, I went to Dr. Fernau (a friend told me about him and his reviews were amazing) to consult about what could be done and he had me hooked! I continued with the procedure and I am so happy with the results. I get so excited when I look in the mirror because my skin is so soft and radiating. People keep telling me how good I look and it's the most amazing feeling. He and his staff were incredibly helpful and they also gave me advice on how to treat my skin with different natural products and a healthy diet. I am so pleased with what Dr. Fernau has given me- confidence and happiness 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

I love dr. Ferneu ! He is a gifted , and kind Dr. I would always go back to him for any procedure. He is always honest , and that means so much. I had my eyes done , i had bags under my eyes. They had got much worse because of a very stressful time in my life. Not only did he take the time to listen , i couldn't have hoped for a better result. The staff is always so kind and helpful. Mary was so helpful with getting things squared away. Sheila was always so calming to have around , always makes me feel better . Sherry is stands out in that way to for me . Just so helpful. Cindy has done Micro dermabrasion and just improved my skin so much. Thank you so much ! More

Dear Dr. Fernau, I hope you are having a wonderful week! I know you are very busy, so I only want to take a short minute of your precious time. I just wanted to express my utmost gratitude to you for everything you have done for me in my hair restoration process. Between the FUE procedure and the PRP treatments, I cannot find the words powerful enough to thank you for making this treatment financially feasible for me. From the very first time I met you for my consultation, I immediately felt like part of your family and was confident that this was the right choice. You were always honest with me and only wanted what was best for me to get the desired results, and I am so unbelievably thankful for your kindness and diligence. You have truly changed my life. Please don't ever hesitate to reach out to me to promote your practice in any way I can. Coming to you was truly one of the best decisions of my life, and I cannot thank you enough. More

As a life long acne sufferer I felt that there was no solution but to wait and see what happens with my skin. After finding Dr. Fernau’s office and his licensed aesthetician CindyScozio I know that that is no longer the case. I have gone through one Isolaz treatment, 3 microdermabrasions, and the use of Dr. Fernau’s acne kit and Cindy has transformed my skin. My face and back are both almost completely clear, and I am no longer embarrassed to go out in public without makeup. Cindy is kind and knowledgeable and she always has the best interest of her patients in mind. She is not out to sell treatments, she honestly cares about everyone seeing results. With an extremely kind and professional staff, I know I will continue to be a client at Dr. Fernau’s office. More

I was referred to Dr. Fernau by another plastic surgeon in 2009 to reduce the appearance of acne scars and a chickenpox scar. Since then I have had three procedures performed by Dr. Fernau, including the CO2 laser, and the results have been incredible. I actually have my first fraxel laser treatment today with Cindy Scozio, the Aesthetician at Dr. Fernau’s office. She is extremely talented and very personable. I highly recommend her microdermabrasion. After just two microderms from Cindy and using the Acne Kit by Dr. Fernau my skin is finally acne free. More

Review from C.  |  Source: Office Visit  |  May 27, 2015

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 began going to Dr. Fernau’s office for hopes of clearing up my acne. I have been working with Cindy for a good while now and my face looks so much better. I have had a few Isolaz treatments and chemical peels that I was skeptical about at first but they have made a huge difference. Cindy does an excellent job, she is very personable and knows exactly what treatment to do to get my best results. I am so thankful to have found such a kind-hearted and well-educated individual as her to improve my skin tremendously. More
