No drain tummy tuck with amazing results - 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... More

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

Absolute Plastic Surgery Genius! - Dr. Fernau and his entire staff are amazing. After numerous virtual consultations, I scheduled to have my lipo abdominoplasty with Dr. Fernau. PLEASE, don’t choose a surgeon on affordability or discounts, alone. This is your ONE body and you get what you pay for. I’m currently 6 days post-op and am already in love with my new shape. Dr. Fernau is an artist, not just a surgeon. His met... More

Breast Augmentation - It was never in my cards to have breasts, so growing up I knew I wanted an augmentation. I was referred to Dr Fernau by a client. She had amazing results from a “mommy makeover” done years ago! My augmentation was almost 3 months ago and I am loving my results! I have so much more confidence and I love being able to wear the tops I’ve always wanted to wear. He and his staff were amazing throu... More

Phenomenal experience - From the first consultation, Dr. Fernau and his staff were beyond welcoming and helpful. He made me feel like I was his only patient. He seemed genuinely excited about my procedure and getting me the results that I wanted. He's a perfectionist and won't settle for less than perfect results. He travels around the world attending conferences related to his trade. He has his finger on the... 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

Excellent Surgeon!! - My experience with Dr Fernau was very positive. He removed two small moles from my face that have always bothered me. I was nervous because it was on my face and wanted to be sure that it would heal well and not be noticeable. He's such a perfectionist and takes every step to achieve an excellent result. I'm so happy with Dr Fernau and the entire experience. More

48 Year Old Wanting to Look Good in Tops my Whole Life - I already gave a detailed review (see above). To summarize Dr Fernau is an excellent surgeon. Intelligent, kind, caring, thorough, extreme attention to detail, great beside manner, loved by his staff and patients in the waiting area. He is on top of all of the latest technology to give his patients the best results. And, other than breast augmentation his other work is superior. I saw first hand beautiful rhinoplasty results, facelift results and patients so happy with liposuction. 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

53 Years Old Physician, Revision Rhinoplasty After First Procedure at Age 16 Due to Birth Defect - Pittsburgh, PA - Dr. Fernau and his staff are wonderful. I picked this Doctor because he was double boarded in ENT and Cosmetic Plastic Surgery AND because he was only provider in the area who is member of Rhinoplasty Assn. He travels the world to learn and share his expertise in the procedure of rhinoplasty. He is highly qualified to do revision rhinoplasty which I waited almost 40 years to get done because I was waiting for the technology and the right surgeon! Obviously I did it and I am pleased! Is it your first rhinoplasty procedure? if you get it right the first time by choosing Dr. Fernau, you won't have to worry about revision! I recommend Dr. Fernau highly and without reservation. 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. He was there during my entire consult, gave me his cell phone number for any questions before or after my surgery, and made sure I was confident in both his skills as well as the machine, the HydroSolve, that he would be using. His experience worldwide is exceptional, and his work that he performed on me was truely artistic. He does an outstanding job. - - 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

5’5, 210 Lbs., 50, BA, 565cc HP Sientra - Pittsburgh, PA - He really takes pride in his work. Very skilled, honest and realistic. - - 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

Highly Satisfied Breast Augmentation Patient! - Pittsburgh, PA - The first thing I noticed when I walked into Dr Fernau's office was how beautiful it was! Even though I was nervous, I just sat there admiring the beautiful interior design. When I was brought back, the surgical technician, Sherry, took some time with me to get my medical history and answer a few questions I had. She made me feel extremely comfortable and made an effort to answer my questions in great detail and was so relatable.When the doctor came in, he totally won me over. He was very professional but had such a great personality too. You could tell he didn't just mean business and want to take my money, he actually cared about me.After I decided to go through with the surgery, the doctor, his nurse Sheila and their surgical technician Sherry all gave me their personal cell phone numbers to call at anytime if I had any questions or concerns. I ended up having to call them in the middle of the night one night and they still answered right away and had me come in the very next morning.Overall, my experience was a 10/10. From the preop process all the way through to my post op experience. Im now about 15 months post op and couldn't be happier with my results! You gave me the confidence I needed Dr Fernau and I can't thank you enough!!!! More

The Entire Experience by Far Exceeded Well Beyond my Expectations - Pittsburgh, PA - Dr. James Fernau and his entire staff are just simply amazing! 5 Stars is simply not enough.I met with Dr. James Fernau for a consultation to discuss a Breast Augmentation as well as a Tummy Tuck. The consultation lasted about 2 hours. I never felt rushed and left knowing exactly what was involved and what to expect.As a mother of three, having plastic surgery is scary as I thought what happens if... The day before the surgery the surgical nurse and the anesthesiologist called me to discuss the procedure. With being so scared; after each call I felt completely reassured that everything will go smoothly and the decision I was making was the right choice. The surgery went very well. Afterwards, I stayed overnight in the suite with the nurse. She was so very sweet and caring. I never had to ask for anything as she was always on top of everything. For two days following surgery; the Doctor, the surgical nurse, my overnight nurse and my anesthesiologist all called me to check up on me. I have had a previous procedure done by another plastic surgeon so I do have something to compare Dr. James Fernau to and I must say I have never experienced a Doctor and his entire staff that is so caring.Would I recommend Dr. James Fernau? Absolutely! The entire experience by far exceeded well beyond my expectations. More

Microneedling Was Worth It Performed by Cindy Scozio at Dr. Fernau's Office - Pittsburgh, PA - 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

24 Year Old-Rhinoplasty - Pittsburgh, PA - 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 wonderful bedside manners, professionalism, and successes in his procedures. I consulted a few surgeons because I wanted to ensure that I would not receive "botched" results on my nose. The experiences I had with the other businesses were either mediocre or poor--rushing me through phone calls, speaking unprofessionally, etc. However, my first phone call to Dr. Fernau's office was exceptional. The receptionist took time to discuss my questions, concerns, fears, and even gave me insight into her experiences.My consultation with Dr. Fernau was similar to the first phone call; he took all the time I needed to get through my questions and concerns (over 2 hours) and had no problem taking more time with me if I needed it! I have never experienced a doctor that has taken that much time with me! He discussed the changes that would be made to my nose and the life changing medical benefits that would result-particularly the ability for me to breathe well (which has resulted in my receiving more oxygen, increased energy levels, and ability to sleep through the night).Dr. Fernau had incredible bedside manners during the procedure and was just as excited as I was to experience the successful results. He has answered his phone, day and night, to allay any concerns and answer my questions during my recovery. Even in my post-op appointments, he took well over an hour with me to discuss how happy he was with the outcome and to answer all the questions I had for the future. Every member of Dr. Fernau's staff has been so genuinely happy for me and has taken it upon themselves to open up about their experiences with their own procedures. Dr. Fernau had described how life-changing this procedure would be for me, and he was correct. I sincerely recommend Dr. Fernau and his staff for any procedure you are considering, because they are caring and genuine, and highly skilled professionals. They desire, as much as you, to give you the best results possible. More

25 Years Old Breast Augmentation - Coraopolis, PA - I was beyond impressed with my experience at this doctor’s office. My first contact was with Sheila and I was completely blown away by how helpful and kind she was and how fast she was at getting back to me! A lot of doctors don’t realize how important it is to have a good nurse like Sheila. The first point of contact is crucial!Now on to the appointment… my appointment ran on time, Dr Fernau was really knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable throughout the appointment! My breast augmentation was beyond my expectations. Dr. Fernau and his staff are all I could have hoped for in a medical practitioner. I would highly recommend him! More

Best Doctor in Town. Coraopolis, PA - Dr. Fernau is very professional, yet his pleasant bed side-manners helped me feel as if I were among his good friends. As Dr. Fernau explained to me, the final results of the procedure will not be obvious for couple of days. However, I must say I am very pleased with the limited results I already see. I love looking natural and enhanced! He pays attention to detail and calls me after my treatments to see how I was doing. BP More

So Grateful!!! - Robinson, PA - Dr. Fernau is an amazing doctor and person. He is the best I've been to by far. His work is beautiful and he strives for perfection. He corrected a mistake that another physician made with filler in my tear trough area that I went around with for 2 years and no one else seemed to be able to fix. It was uneven, and I had bags there and a blue tinted discoloration. Dr. Fernau spent so much time with me and offered me different treatments to do everything he could to make me look my best. He used the most current products and techniques I have not seen anyone else use or even mention. He added filler to surrounding areas and he treated the Edema and the discoloration both FREE of charge! He also has continued to do the laser treatment around my eyes for FREE! Who else would do that!? He and his staff are so kind and wonderful like a family. Everyone there from the receptionist to the billing person was wonderful. Between the treatment I received from them and the immediate results that I got that day, I started to cry! I was and am so grateful!!!! Thank you so much again!!!! More

Great Experience with Neografting Hair Transplant Surgery - Pittsburgh, PA - Every interaction, from the initial consultation to the actual procedure to the follow ups, were all great. Not only do they perform their jobs well, their personalities made the experience that much better. You're treated like a good friend and every question and concern is thoroughly addressed. Unlike many doctors out there, Dr. Fernau does not have nor display the arrogance most physicians do. And his staff is just as gracious. - - As a 42 year old male, I was experiencing classic symptoms of male pattern baldness. I consulted with Dr. Fernau and his staff and decided to have 1400 grafts implanted. Dr. Fernau, Sheila, and Sherry were all wonderful to work with. Their knowledge, skill, and friendliness made my experience a good one. As with all hair transplant surgeries, the final results will not be seen until several months from now but based on the appearance of the grafting in place, I expect a great outcome. Thank you much.

Life Changing - Pittsburgh, PA - I cannot say enough about Dr. Fernau and his staff!! I had battled with some self esteem issues that plagued me for quite some time. Dr. Fernau always took the time to listen to my concerns and explained what he could do to help me. He's always on the cutting edge of new technology and is a leader in his field. His staff is very friendly and helpful during the surgical process. I now have been a patient for many years and have had several large and small procedures performed. I have never felt this confident about myself! My old shy personality is now changed and I'm more outgoing and social. I look and feel better than I did in high school!!! I have always been so happy and pleased with all of my experiences that I have referred many friends and family members.I highly recommend Dr. Fernau for anyone who is looking for a skilled surgeon who treats you more like family than a patient!

355cc Sientras - 31 years old, 5'6, 110lbs. - I went to Dr. Fernau for labiaplasty and a breast augmentation. I have always been self conscious about my appearance in those areas up until now. Dr. Fernau assured me that I was a great candidate for these procedures and would be well taken care of. His entire staff is extremely wonderful as well! I felt very comfortable calling the office, and especially Sheila at any given time with any questions and concerns. Not only are you their patient, but also a "friend" as well which is very comforting. I truly appreciated the fact that you aren't on a "time crunch" either. Dr. Fernau and his staff are willing to take the time to ensure that you are well informed regarding every aspect prior to surgery and post-op. Cosmetic surgery is a life altering change and I can truly say that Dr. Fernau and his staff have truly exceeded my expectations. I am beyond satisfied with choosing him as my surgeon. I would highly recommend him to anyone! More
