"I had the best experience I could ask for going to Dr. Fernau and his team. I received a septoplasty / rhinoplasty and have results that far exceeded my expectations. Originally, I went in for the cosmetic benefit, but Dr. Fernau found that I had a deviated septum. I never expected the massive quality of life difference I received. Far less congestion, sinus pressure, abnormal drainage, things I dealt with daily that are long gone now. That along with my dream nose, the full makeover I spent years hoping for, I'm absolutely thrilled! I will recommend him every time I have the opportunity."- J.N. / Google / Jan 28, 2024

"Wonderful experience with Dr. Fernau and his team, Sheila, Ryan, Alexa and Sherry. They all made me feel comfortable throughout my breast augmentation process, answered all my questions and gave me their best advice on picking the perfect implant and size. I got 350cc sientra gummy bear implants with a subfascial approach and I couldn’t be happier with my results. Clinic was very clean, friendly and professional. Special shout out to nurse Alexa who made me feel relax and safe right before going into surgery. Thank you! You all were amazing!"- A. / Google / Jan 05, 2024
"I've been seeing Dr Fernau for a couple of years now and he, Sheila and his entire staff are the most amazing people. I love how they make you feel right at home. I honestly feel blessed to know them. As a surgeon he is top notch. He knows of the newest methods of doing things and you can tell he strives for perfection. Sheila is super sweet and explains everything to you and if she doesn't know something she won't hesitate to find out. I had a complication from a surgery and the level of compassion and care I got from them was above and beyond... You are not just a Number here, you're a person. I will definately be back. Honestly, if you have some hesitance on going here, just book your consult and meet them, you'll be at ease in no time. Thank you Dr. Fernau, Sheila and ALL the staff there for putting up with me!! 😊"- J.M. / Google / Dec 15, 2023
"I had decided for my birthday that I was going to gift myself some Botox! After doing as millennials do (i.e. going to Google and Reddit to research and find recommendations), I chose Dr. Fernau's office. I was not looking for the cheapest or closest option -- I wanted the best. I liked the idea of a facial plastic surgeon taking care of my Botox -- I didn't think I would be pressured to do more than I was comfortable, and I wanted natural results. From inquiry to scheduling to the actual appointment, everything was easy and the staff is so kind! Sheila performed my procedure, and she walked me through what to expect before, during, and after the procedure. I'm only two days post-procedure, and I can already tell a difference -- it's very subtle, I feel like I still completely look like me, but refreshed. 10/10 recommend a birthday gift to yourself of Botox, and 10/10 recommend seeing Sheila, Dr. Fernau, and team! I will definitely be returning!"- T.P. / Google / Oct 12, 2023
Permanent Makeup FAQ
Does getting permanent makeup hurt?
Some people may experience a little discomfort during the procedure, but we can offer you a topical anesthetic to keep you get comfortable while getting your permanent makeup.
Is permanent makeup really permanent?
Although the pigment for permanent makeup is permanently tattooed into the upper layer of your skin, as with any tattooing procedure, the color can fade over time. If the color fades, you can always have a touch-up procedure to maintain your results.
How long does a permanent makeup procedure take?
Depending on what procedure you’re having performed, a typical initial procedure can take about 2 – 3 hours. Your procedure might also be broken up into two sessions, with the second session shorter than the first. Touch-up procedures are much shorter and can take about an hour or less.
What if I don’t like my permanent makeup?
You should always keep in mind that this is a permanent procedure, be sure of your decision, and carefully work with your provider to develop a permanent makeup plan that meets your aesthetic goals. It can take some weeks for the treated area to heal and the true look and color to be apparent after a procedure.
