Absolutely loved the Lutronics Genius RF Microneedling treatments I received from Cindy. Cindy took the time to understand my needs and her attention to detail was impeccable. She genuinely cared about my results which are improving each day. Thank you, Cindy. 5 star treatment. More

I had a differential breast augmentation with subfascial placement using Sientra smooth round silicone implants and it turned out perfect. Dr. Fernau is very skilled and knowledgeable and Nurse Sheila is incredibly kind and patient. I also really appreciated that they include 3 laser scar removal appointments for the incision scars. Thank you! More

I have been going to Cindy, the esthetician at Dr. Fernau’s office, for years now. I used to struggle with acne-prone skin and was left with a lot of acne scarring. Thanks to Cindy, I now get compliments all the time on how glowing and beautiful my skin is! She has years of experience and so much knowledge about all things skincare. I’ve had several microdermabrasion and microneedling treatments done by Cindy which has cleared up all of my acne and scars. I also swear by the office’s ultra-hydrating hyaluronic acid serum. It is a holy grail item in my skincare routine and gives me the nicest glow and plumps my skin better than anything else I have tried. Not only does Cindy know her stuff through and through, but she is also such a wonderful and kind person, just like the rest of Dr. Fernau’s staff. More

I have been treating with Dr. Fernau since 2017. I had a botched deviated septum surgery by a different doctor in 2007 which left me with a nose that was twisting and collapsing. I did a lot of research and saw multiple doctors for consultation before choosing Dr. Fernau. He treated me the way you would take care of a member of your own family. He was so kind, caring and reassuring about what needed to be done. He is very accomplished and knowledgeable. Dr. Fernau had to rebuild my nose from scratch. I have had 4 surgeries and now I’m undergoing PRP to thicken the skin on my nose. Dr. Fernau told me that he wouldn’t stop until my nose was perfect. He has continued to keep his word. I am a complicated case and have had a few setbacks along the way. Other doctors would have abandoned me or never even attempted to help me, but not Dr. Fernau. Today will be my first appointment since the COVID restrictions were lifted. I’m looking forward to getting back on track and I know that I have a doctor that will see this through to completion. Thank you Dr. Fernau. More

Dr. Fernau has a pleasant and professional manner. The work he did with my upper and lower eyelids had excellent results. The subsequent laser treatment used for scar reduction & skin resurfacing is done at no cost for unlimited treatments. Above all his staff was helpful, kind and courteous. I highly recommend him and his staff. More

After a lot of research I decided I wanted a drainless tummy tuck. The first time I met with Dr. Fernau I knew that I wanted him to be my surgeon. He’s truly caring, listens and is easy to talk to. His practice uses the best and newest technology, and he always puts patient safety first. He ended up doing my tummy tuck and some lipo. My results exceeded my expectations, he is truly a perfectionist! The best part of it all is that it was as painless as it could be. I never even took a pain pill. He also gives complimentary laser treatments on your scars- as many as you need until it’s gone! The entire staff there is caring and extremely welcoming! Sheila, Alana and Amber make you feel completely at ease. I really can’t say enough good things about Dr. Fernau and his staff! More

Skin Care at Dr. James Fernau's office with Esthetician Cindy. I have been a client of Cindy for many years. She is amazingly knowledgeable of skincare and various skin treatments. She will no steer you wrong. She is honest and has the clients' best interest at heart. She puts you at ease and there is absolutely no intimidation with her. She produces results! I highly recommend Cindy! More

I saw Dr. Fernau about having a microneedling procedure to correct scarring. He was professional, friendly, and clearly explained the treatment details. Many thanks to Cindy (Aesthetician) who was great! She was conscientious and made me feel comfortable during all the treatments. Dr. Fernau and his entire staff were so friendly and made me feel welcome in the office. I would highly recommend Dr. Fernau and his team to anyone interested in having plastic surgery. More

He always has been friendly and takes as much time as needed to answer my questions. His staff are truly invested as well. I have had several treatments (Precision Tx, Fractionated & Ablative Lasers, and PRP treatments). There was very minimal to no discomfort for each procedure. I had a procedure done years prior under the care of a different doctor and the recover time was over double the length and after care was much more involved. Dr. Fernau gets noticeable results and also the recovery process is quite impressive as well. Overall, completely worth it. I had an excellent experience and am very happy. More

48 Year Old Wanting to Look Good in Tops my Whole Life - Dr Fernau and his staff were so wonderful. I had 3 prior consults and they couldn't compare to my consult with Dr Fernau. He is very intelligent and stresses patient safety and I felt immediately comfortable with the entire processs. They have state of the art 3 dimensional imaging to help choose the size and style of the implant. My consult was over an hour and I never felt rushed. I chose a 355 Sientra gummy bear implants and my results are perfect. I never took a pain pill after surgery. I was out of my garment in one week. No external sutures. They laser (free of charge) a 3 cm scar to make it disappear. The scars are in my natural breast crease and as I understand it Dr Fernau uses a Keller funnel to keep the scars so small. I have had 2 laser treatments and i cannot see the scars. Dr Fernau is a great surgeon because of his attention to detail. And he truley cares! More

22 Years Old, Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure - Best Experience Ever! - Pittsburgh, PA - 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

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

52yo Looks 102 Yo - Pittsburgh, PA - I have had 2 micro needling followed by PRP (platelet rich plasma) application by Cindy Scozio at Accent on Body , the office of Dr. James Fernau, and I cannot believe my results. Cindy took extra time explaining the science behind the procedure and recommended a skin care regime that has left my skin soooooo amazing . I have scheduled another needling but continue to use the skin care and my skin has never looked so healthy. I cannot recommend Cindy enough and the results of a series of the needling. It is great for older skin like mine to help turnover but I have seen other younger patients with acne have equally unbelievable results. 10 star rating More

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 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

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

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

Breast Augmentation, Brazilian Butt Lift - Accent on Body Cosmetic Surgery - Pittsburgh, PA - Dr Fernau is superb. My consult was over one hour. He explained everything in detail. How the breasts and buttock shape work together. He was so right. I am happy I listened to him. He is very smart and kind. My surgery and recovery was relatively painless; a little pressure thats all. My aftercare has been great with laser treatments over my scars at no charge: I cant see them! 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

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

Dr. fernau is the greatest! My dog bit me and took my lip almost the whole way off. I thought I would never look the same again. I went through 2 surgeries and he took a skin graph from behind my ear and placed it above my lip and fixed my face. I am undergoing laser treatments to get rid of the small scar on my face. It already looks like it never happened. It is truly amazing what this man can do, things I never thought were possible. Also, his staff is great. They are very friendly, fast and to the point. I have never had a better experience with a doctor and his staff in my life and I highly recommend Dr. Fernau for any of your needs in his field! 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

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. Sheila, his nurse, was wonderful with pre and post op care. I am beyond happy with choosing him to perform my surgery. 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

We found Dr. Fernau and his reviews and word of mouth were so good. I had terrible scars on my face, back and legs. He removed them and I cannot see any incision lines. It changed my life! I want to wear a bathing suit again. He also had me come in for free laser treatments which is why my scars are invisible. Nobody else in Pittsburgh offered this treatment. He is so professional and kind and gentle. I was never scared. His staff is so friendly and his office is beautiful. I noticed all of his awards and he offers the best of everything. I am so happy! Five stars to him!!! More

I have been seeing Cindy Scozio for a year now, and since I have received microdermabrasion treatments regularly. While I instantly saw improvement for my acne, my red post-acne scars were still visible, so she recommended the sciton and fraxel lasers as treatment. 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. I never thought these red spots would go away, especially since I have been dealing with them for ten years. Cindy has made a huge difference on my face, and I highly recommend her! More
