5/5 stars - Breast Augmentation

“Only a highly trained and experienced surgeon
could dowhat Dr. Pedersen did for me.”

“After seeing the results of my surgery, I was totally amazed at the precision it took to remove so much skin and flesh with the end result being two perfectly matching, much smaller, breasts...and to imagine how tedious that kind of surgery must be when a person's chest is moving up and down as they breathe on the operating table. I can't get over that. Only a highly trained and experienced surgeon could do what Dr. Pedersen did for me.”

“I would highly recommend him to anyone
in the Northeast Ohio area!”

“Dr. Pedersen is an amazing person. Not only did he do a fantastic job on my Panniculectomy but he alleviated all my concerns before the surgery. He even held my hand until I was completely under anesthesia which reassured me that he really did care for my well being... not just about getting the surgery over and done with. I would highly recommend him to anyone in the Northeast Ohio area!”

5/5 stars - Tummy Tuck

“I would recommend him to anyone.”

“From my breast reduction consultation to after I got home the night of the surgery Dr. Pedersen was everything I expected and more. He took the time to explain everything and answer any questions I had. Not only did he take care of me he also made my family more at ease the day of surgery. He even personally called me the night of surgery to check on me. I would recommend him to anyone. I also adore and appreciate all of the ladies in his office. They also answered any questions I may have had, especially Julie who has gone above and beyond helping me get my paperwork in order for work.”
