NO MORE EMBARASSING SWEAT! show details NO MORE EMBARASSING SWEAT!
by GW on Aug 4th, 2016

I cannot express the level of dedication and care that Dr. Hedden provides every time I am under his care. He truly is an amazing man and is the best in his field. I came in to have the MIRADRY procedure done to stop excessive underarm sweating, and Dr. Hedden and his nurse practitioner Traci made me feel so at ease. Miradry is non-invasive and stops sweat & odor from your underarms PERMANENTLY! Miradry was the answer to my hyperhidrosis that I have had for years, and I am AMAZED at the results! I have zero sweat under my arms, and I don't have to worry about embarrassing sweat stains or ruining shirts. The procedure was painless & the down time was minimal if that! DO IT!

AMAZING MiraDry Procedure show details AMAZING MiraDry Procedure
by Laine on Jul 27th, 2016

I recently had the MiraDry procedure at Hedden Plastic Surgery and had an excellent experience! It's non-invasive and relatively painless with little downtime and GREAT results! Treatment lasted about 2 hours and Traci, the service provider, was AMAZING! I have had ZERO sweating under my arms since my procedure on Friday and am now deodorant free! Since I am allergic to pretty much every deodorant under the sun, this procedure was absolutely a success in my never having to wear it again!

Jul 18th, 2016

I was very excited to get my breast implants. I felt like as an out of town patient, the staff wasn't quite organized. They had forgotten that I had put a down payment down and even tried to cancel my appointment an hour before after I had made the LONG drive in. They also forgot to do my blood work and physical. Some of the staff, not all, Weren't very friendly and seemed annoyed. With all of the great reviews i read I told myself maybe I was just nervous. I had my first surgery and the implants immediately bottomed out. I noticed it with in weeks of the swelling going down and became worse as the 3 months past. I had shown the dr as well as the nurses the bra's I wore (which I was told to purchase) but then after everything. Went south I was told I wore the wrong bra? Although these were the bras that were approved (I brought them in bc and I was told to purchase them.) As soon as all of the swelling went down I knew that something wasn't right. I also had signs of double bubble. So I go back almost a year later, pay the cost to fix something that I was never satisfied with and I still have the same results and unfortunately it is going to cost me a lot in the long run. I am now going to another surgeon in hopes to fix my implants. I personally felt like Dr. Hedden was annoyed with me although I was the patient with a bad breast augmentation. And it was some how turned on me as it was "possibly" my fault. I had read over all of his instructions and took them to heart... I maybe took it a little too extreme and babied myself for 3 months. I read all of his reviews and noticed a response he made to one that said " we put forth the extra effort to make sure your are happy with your results". I felt as though it was like, well this is what you got and if you want it fixed here is the price. I thought, maybe I just had bad luck with him. In the last year 3 other friends went to him and they too are having issues. Just do your research before committing to a plastic surgeon. I had high hopes but now this will be my 3rd surgery to correct and hopefully my last. I was just very dissappointed. I know it could be worse, but when I read his quote that he wanted to make sure everyone was completely satisfied with their results, I personally didn't have that experience and felt that statement was false.. He will fix the problem but that comes with a price tag... Just hope that the 2nd surgery you book with him fixes the problems, if not its money down the drain as I've experienced.

I am thrilled with the results of my breast augmentation performed by Dr. Hedden. I wish I would have had the procedure performed 20 years ago. Dr. Hedden helped me make the right decision for my body and I am so glad he did (I thought I wanted a smaller implant, but it would be been too small!). I recommend Dr. Hedden to anyone considering cosmetic surgery. If you are not happy with your body, change it, life is too short to be unhappy!!

To say I was nervous was an understatement. Dr. Hedden and his staff went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and welcome to be there. I cannot say enough good things about his nurse Pennie and the CRNA Patrick. Dr Hedden himself is an amazing dr, listened to want I wanted and then said then this is what we need to do. I couldn't be happier with the results, exactly what I wanted. Do not doubt yourself going here and putting yourself in Dr. Hedden's hands... you won't be sorry.

I got a breast augmentation 5 days ago and I'm beyond happy with everything ! Dr. Hedden and his staff are amazing!!! They made me feel so comfortable and took their time with me. For years I have been so self-conscious with my breast and now they are exactly the way I've always wanted them. I was an AA and got 425cc so I'm hopping to be a C. My surgery went great and a lot easier than I expected it to. So if you're nervous don't be! Dr hedden does a great job and takes good care of you. After my surgery I was a little sore but not very much. I expected to be hurting very badly, but 3 hours after my surgery I was up walking around and even went out to eat with my family! Now that I'm on day 5 everything is still goin great and I am a little sensitive still but not very much. I hope this review helps to anyone looking forward to getting a breast augmentation. :)

I would recommend Dr. Hedden to anyone interested in any type of plastic surgery, especially breast augmentation. I had done my research and found other great reviews on him. I am so happy I choose to have surgery with him. He and his staff were very friendly throughout the whole process. He never made me feel uncomfortable. He seemed to really value my opinions and my wants for my surgery. He took time with me during his clinic schedule to answer all the questions I had. I never felt like I was being rushed out of his office because he had other patient's to see. I do not enjoy going to the doctor but he made it the most pleasant experience I could ask for. His bedside manner before and after the surgery was more than I could have asked for.

Breast augmentation Revision show details Breast augmentation Revision
by Jamie Banks on Apr 23rd, 2015

I came to Dr. Hedden for a breast augmentation revision surgery that I had done two years ago. Dr. Hedden and his office staff were all very helpful with me achieving the results I wanted in my breast augmentation. I had a slow deflation in my left breast. But, I was also very dissatisfied with the size of my implants that the previous doctor gave me. I wanted to have more cleavage and less of a gap between my breast. I am only four days post op and I am already extremely satisfied with my results. Dr. Hedden didn't push me into what he thought would look best on me. He made me choose the amount of cc placed into my implant. He wanted me to make the decision because it is my body. I had no pain after surgery. I had my surgery on a Monday and was able to come back to work that Wednesday. The staff at his office are all very professional and polite. I had a wonderful experience!

Dr. Hedden has almost always made me feel like a person and not just another $1 in his bank account. He addressed my concerns honestly and not just tell me what I want to hear. I am having my 4th surgery with Dr. Hedden in 8 days. I have no desire to use anyone else because he makes me feel comfortable and important. His staff has been courteous for the most part over the years. Anyone that I had dealt with that was not did not last in his office . The overall cleanliness has always been impeccable as well. I would definitely recommend using Dr. Hedden.

by Lynn M. on Jul 22nd, 2014

Dr. Hedden did my facelift 5 years ago. At the time I was almost 55. The results were great with a natural look. Afterward, whenever I met new people they invariably guessed my age at about 35-40. The lift is still holding up well 5 years later. Naturally there has been a small amount of age progression, but I feel I still look considerably younger than my almost 60 years.

by Tonya M. McVaugh on Mar 6th, 2014

WOW....Where do I start?!!! Well, I guess I could start by saying that I have had several procedures done with a previous dr in a different state that I walked away very disappointed and not happy with my results for most of them not to mention that there was alot of wasted money which made me very causious as to whom I chose the second time around when I found Dr. Hedden. Dr. Hedden fixed everything with one time that the previous Dr. had told me that there was nothing left to do to correct it for he had already went in and tried twice and then Dr Hedden came along and looked at it and said oh no problem and went straight into talkng about something else I was aquiring about also. At any rate, Dr Hedden and his staff made me feel so at ease and that I had finally found the right place. The scar revision he corrected was from a thigh lift that i previous had and the scar had busted and i litterally had 3-4 inch scars from my croch all the way to the inside of my knee. I was embaressed to wear shorts and a bathing suit but thought that since i had it attempted to have it redone twice that i would have to just live with this for the rest of my life. However, Dr Hedden went in once and never any pain there as expected and i truely have just a simple small thin scar that you can barely see as well as taking a scar treament that Dr Hedden prescribed and they have impressed me beyond my expectations......now, that is just ONE of the things Dr Hedden has done for me.....If I go into each and every thing Ive had done since then, I would never get through this review and you would never finish reading it! I will tell you that since then ive had a Breast lit, Breast aug, Butt implants, lipo, Botox, Lip Filler and tomorrow I start my Tattoo removal. I do travel almost 3 hours to see Dr Hedden however, It is well worth it! If I had known what I know today, I would hve made these trips along time ago when I began my first experiences with plastic surgey! His staff, wife and other Dr. he has in there are all so nice and treats you with so much true care and concern. His office is very Lovely and high end quality .......to go hand and hand with his work. I am very very pleased with EVERYTHING and will continue to come here for years to come! Thank You Dr. Hedden for putting hope back into me and changing my life. God Bless you, your business and everything you do!

Although Dr. Hedden did not do my original BA, I had heard about him from a friend that had hers exchanged and loved him. So I called for an appointment for myself and my daughter that was wanting a BA. We had no problem getting an appointment and being seen by Dr. Hedden, and ultimately scheduled surgery within the next 10 days. The nurses and staff were very informative and assisted in any way possible. Carol a nurse there even helped me get an appointment with a MD to get clearance for surgery. I have also had Botox and Juvederm at other facilities, but this will now be my place of choice for any procedure. Very satisfied.

LOVE Dr. Hedden! He did both my original BA and my implant exchange 20 months later. I was happy with results the first time but changed from saline to silicone and went larger. Should have gone with my gut and what he told me "everyone wishes they would have gone bigger". In ALL of my experiences with Hedden Plastic Surgery I couldn't have asked to have been treated with any better care, from the receptionist, nurses, anesthetist, down to the doctors ALL made me feel that my comfort and concerns were top priority. I couldn't be happier with my end results. I have recommended him many times, not only for the price but for the expertise of he and his staff!!

His prices are very fair and he is a very skilled surgeon willing to try breast augmentation techniques that other surgeons will not try. His staff is world class and very professional and kind. I felt very safe here and my boobs look great now. I would definitely refer him to a friend and I would definitely return. The only downside is that the wait times for your appointment can be pretty long (i.e. let's say you have a 2:00PM appointment....you might not get seen until like 3:05). But, there is a trade off with everything in life. He does quality work at very low prices. Therefore, there are a lot of patients.

His out of state coordinator "Heather" was wonderful. Dr.Hedden was extremely personal with me in my consult and I was not rushed to leave until I was satisfied with all my questions and answers and I respected his honest opinions.

His staff, from the receptionist to ALL the nurses his professionalism was indeed instill in his staff and office. Caring, understanding and prompt.

What sold me initially on Dr. Hedden was that he personally called me last year to answer a form I had submitted from his website. I thought that was first class and it's the kind of thing you never forget. I've had a couple of lipo treatments. One last year and then again two weeks ago. I've been very satisfied with the results. His pricing seems very fair. The nurses and staff are all very friendly. They made me feel at ease before and after my procedures. Dr. Hedden is very easy to talk to. I feel that he listens and really cares. I'm happy with my results so far and I know that as I heal each day, the results will be even better as the swelling goes down. I'm already thinking about having something else done and I can't wait to speak to him about that. If you're thinking about having plastic surgery, I would definitely tell you to consider Dr. Hedden. It will change your life and give you so much confidence. Highly recommend!!

About a year after my Breast Augmentation back in 2011 (from Dr. Hedden), My husband and I were blessed with a surprised pregnancy. I knew I was going to breast feed, and I was very worried about messing up my brand new look Dr. Hedden gave me. Well, I gain a good amount of weight and breast feed, so it alter my results. So I decided to go see Dr. Hedden. I I love going to Greystone Cosmetic Center, they always make me feel like I am the most important person. It makes me feel so good about myself. Dr. Hedden and his staff will always be number 1 for me. I could probably write a book about how wonderful they are. There are no second thoughts when you go to Dr. Hedden! If anyone has any questions about Dr. Hedden or his staff I would love to tell you more about it! Dr. Hedden has very good bedside manner, which is very important to me. When he explains his procedures, he will also help you understand it better by referring to photos. And how many doctors do you know, that will do a skype consult and post op's? I know a fantastic one...Dr. William Hedden!

I had Belotero injected today by Dr Hedden. This is a new filler similar to Juvederm and Restylane. I am extremely pleased with my results. It was relatively painless. I didn't even need numbing cream. Stings a little but very tolerable. I would recommend for anyone to come to Dr Hedden to have a service performed. He is a GREAT doctor!!

My self confidence is where it should be! show details My self confidence is where it should be!
by Amanda P on Jan 31st, 2013

I'm 29 and have wanted boobs since I never got them. Does that make sense? When all of my little girlfriends started developing, I wondered when I would. Well, it never really happened. Even when my weight was at it's highest (can you say Freshman 15?) they stayed small and I felt self conscious about them for as long as I can remember. Pool parties were the worst! And even now though I spend a ton of time in workout clothes, I'll be happier when I can buy a non-padded bra and bikini. I went back and forth on this decision for years. As an edurance junkie the recovery period is what concerns me the most. The secondary concern is that I'll be too big and feel like a porn star. No offense porn stars. Ya gotta eat, right? ;) I finally made the decision and after speaking with a few different PS' I found the one that is best for me. Dr. Hedden came highly recommended online as well as locally. He had zero negative reviews and I felt extremely confident and comfortable in his care. I am so content with my new boobs and can't thank him enough.

I saw severl plastic surgeons before settling on using Dr Hedden. We were nervous we had drove so far to have this done. I had sent pictures prior and had arranged a skype seasion with Ashley. She was very sweet and helpful. She answered most of my questions but then called Dr Hedden in who went over all the options that were available for my size and frame. He was so nice. I felt very at ease. I had lots of questions. probably the main think that stands out from the day of the procedure beside being very neevous was Dr Hedden reasuring me everything was going to be fine and look great. I remember waking up in recovery very happy with my size and am very happy i listened to him on going slightly bigger. everything looks perfect... thank you to all the wonderful staff that took care of me ... you were all great!!!!

Love Dr. Hedden and His Staff show details Love Dr. Hedden and His Staff
by Eleanor on Aug 24th, 2012

I absolutley love Dr. Hedden. I did have to wait 40 minutes to see him which is actually less than I wait to see my Gyn. The office was full which I expected because everyone I know has gotten their augmentation by Dr. Hedden. The girl next to me was returning for her three week check up and she had great things to say. She said she felt great and that she was completely satisfied. So I had high expectations when I was called back. The nurse was so nice she explained the whole process to me. I tried on sizers and was able to take my time making my decision. When I was done I let my nurse know and then Dr. Hedden came in. I expected him to be arrogant, but he was totally nice. He was so relaxed and answered all of my questions until I could not think of another thing I wanted to ask. Of course I remembered things I wanted to ask when I got home so I called the office and a nurse took her time answering all the rest of my questions. I came back for my history and physical and they went over all the information for surgery and I also got a chance to ask any other questions I had thought of. I asked if I could talk to Dr Hedden again. I had some questions because my sister just found a lump and so I wanted to be sure getting augmentation was okay. He reassured me about everything. I felt totally comfortable about going ahead with surgery. I had surgery two weeks later and the girls told me that times could not be precisely predicted because surgery takes as long as it takes. I didn't wait all that long though and before I knew it I was being taken back. Patrick the CRNA was so nice and went over all the anesthesia info. Dr. Hedden came and verified what we had talked about and did some markings. I was ready to go. He did not make me feel rushed at all and I was like come on let get this show on the road. Next thing I knew I was in recovery ans a really nice nurse was getting me a drink and some crackers. The kept me there until I felt more normal and then they let me go home. I look great. It is kind if weird because I have never had a chest before, but I love my results. I love how I look in clothes! Dr. Hedden did a great job. At my three week check up I was the girl in the waiting toom telling someone about my wonderful experience. I could not be happier. I love Dr. Hedden and his staff.

I came in the night before and had some many questions. The even let me take dozers with me to my hotel:) Dr Hedden gave me his cell number and said I could call him with any questions that night or to write them down for in the morning. The question I had was when could I eat:) the results are amazing. It Is a beautiful facility as well as a busy one. I met several girls from all over the world that had flown there as well. Many had stated they came to him because of problems they had from surgeries by other doctors. All I know is I never felt more cared for then that day. I always say... Trust your heart .... I did!

We have many giveaways we do daily and weekly on facebook as a way to say thank you to our loyal patients. Last week we gave away multiple makeovers and were a little late in giving away the makeovers by a day and this was one of the followers who was mad about our delay. We had apologized for the delay to her and even gave her one of the free makeovers (haircut,mani,pedi and laser genesis) as a way to say were sorry but I guess that was not enough. But for those of you who do come to Birmingham at times, I would suggest following us for a chance at a free giveaway.

I recently had a breast augmentation two months ago with Dr. Hedden. I searched all over the internet for the perfect PS and when I found Dr. Hedden I couldn't be more confident that I had found the right one. After consulting with him and doing my research for several months I booked my surgery. Although I came in knowing what I wanted, he was more than helpful in walking me through my options and ensuring my trust. He answered all of my questions in detail and made me feel a level of comfort that was amazing. He took his time to make sure that I understood every bit of the process and the choices I was making. He gave me exactly the look that I wanted and I've been told by several, several, people that I have some of the best BA results they have ever seen. I'm absolutely thrilled with my results as well as the care I received from Dr. Hedden and his lovely staff. There is not a single thing I would change about my experience. Every detail about my BA process was a breeze as well as my recovery. I have had absolutely no problems and Dr. Hedden has been very responsive to every post-op question and concern that I have had. His office has called to check up on me several times and Dr. Hedden gave me all of his personal contact information so that I can keep in touch anytime I please. I would recommend Dr. Hedden to everyone and anyone interested in having a cosmetic procedure and have nothing but the very best to say about my experience! Dr. Hedden absolutely made my dreams come true.

I was all over the Internet looking for someone to go to for breast augmentation. A friend of mine had travelled to Birmingham Alabama so I checked it out. It was the best decision I ever made. I had emailed pictures first and then was told to call the assistant. I believe her name was Ashley. She help set me up for a Skype appointment in the afternoon. After the Skype appointment I was sure I had made the right decision. I was surprised to see that another girl stated it was hard to arrange. I was given cell numbers of the girl who assist with that and was able to arrange it very easily. I was still nervous the day of surgery. The facilities were amazing and everyone was so nice. They even let me take some sizers to the hotel with me to make sure I was happy with the size I was choosing. I had the procedure through the belly button and it was easy. I went out that night and came in the next day and absolutely love them. Thank you. So much Dr Hedden. You truly are an artist. I'm sure I will come back for more in the future.

They feel so REAL!!! He was really nice and his staff was extra helpful with whatever i asked even if it was a crazy question. Thank Dr Hedden and staff for all your hard work and making me look SO GOOD :) bl

Jun 22nd, 2012

Dr Hedden may be a good plastic surgeon, but if he had less surgeries scheduled at the same time my experience would have been a lot different. I had a breast augmentation almost 4 months ago, and so far, I think the results are good (not amazing), but my experience at his practice was not the best. I had to wait for him for over an hour in his office before he came to see me (in addition to the hour and a half I waited to get in) when he finally came in he seemed to be in a rush, asked me a few questions and left the rest to the nurse to deal with. The next day, my surgery was scheduled at 8am and I had to be there at 6:30... Again, he came in for like another 5 minutes and left after drawing a few lines. The staff is nice, but they do not answer the phone when you call the nurse's station; being from out of town it was hard to go back in for a month follow up but he said he could do Skype -NOT! never got a call, email, NOTHING! For all they know I died from complications or else. I had to call and leave several voice mails with my questions and concerns, and wait a day or two for a call back. I read somewhere that it was like a drive-thru plastic surgery, and I definitely agree with that statement. The results are not horrible, but don't have high expectations.

Doctor's Response

There are some things as an out of state patient you need to do to make sure the process is enjoyable for you. First is send us pictures or call Ashley (205-587-9047) to set up a skype. Pictures are so important. There is a higher risk of patients coming in thinking implants alone can fix their problem when they have not sent pictures before hand. That is the primary reason someone does not love their results, it is because their expectation could never be met with just implants and they may have needed a lift but did not want a lift. So Sending pictures before hand is a must. Please understand skype takes more then one call to set up as you have to be available when the doctor is available so typically these are done in the late afternoon. When in doubt though we always give every patient my cell number so they can text me pictures if they have concerns or call me at anytime 24/7. With this patient any skype attempts on her behalf were responded to but the are rules medical practices have to abide by such as HIPPA which does not let us call you back and leave any significant amount of medical information or anything referring to your care other then to just try and reach you so at times the process of skype can seem frustrating. But to minimize this please just text Ashley to have her set everything up for you. We always ask our out of state patients to please at least do the three day process otherwise you will always feel rushed or as if the doctor did not spend enough time. This patient was one of those that insist to the practice to have it all done in one day. When they are insistent we will sometimes try to accommodate them but always warn them that they may feel rushed. I always stress to my patients when you are from out of state please make a list of your questions before you come because as the consult finishes I always ask if you have any other questions and I will not leave the room until you say no that%u2019s all you needed. This patient states she has never had a call back but our office is set up to where the out of state coordinator calls all patients back a 3 weeks post procedure but again if you don%u2019t answer or call us back then you will not know that we tried to reach you. We will probably stop allowing the ones who insist on doing it in one day because of her statement of drive through surgery. Because anywhere you go if you try to push to have everything done so quickly as these patients you will feel that you were rushed or did not have enough of the doctors time. Stop and think for a minute%u2026..If you were having this done in your own home town you would first call, do your research and then have a consult one day have several weeks to think about everything and call with any questions during that period and then come in and have your surgery and if had concerns you could drop into the office at any time after. We offer all of this but patients try to skip corners and have everything in one day then you feel like this girl. So please stay a minimum of three days or choose another doctor. one last thing DR Hedden cell number is 205-601-4127 call anytime Ashley my PA 205-587-9047 again call anytime so we can answer your questions and ease your mind over the surgery.

I CONTACTED HIM 1 WEEK AFTER SURGERY BECAUSE I GOT A CC AND HE KEEPS GIVING ME THE RUN AROUND INSTEAD OF STICKING TO HIS WORD TO FIX THE PROBLEM WHICH USUALLY REQUIRES SURGERY. I HAVE BEEN IN SO MUCH PAIN, THAT I ENDED UP HAVING TO CONTACT ANOTHER DR AND PAY THAT DR TO FIX IT. I THOUGHT IT WAS KIND OF SAD THAT HE DIDN'T SEEM TO CARE ENOUGH. I KNOW HE DOES A BUNCH OF SURGERIES A YEAR, BUT WHEN SOMETHING GOES WRONG, HE SHOULD BE A LITTLE MORE PERSONABLE ABOUT IT. I FEEL LIKE HE JUST DOESN'T GIVE A CRAP. MY CONSULTATION WAS VERY FAST (MOSTLY BECAUSE I HAD DONE MY RESEARCH BEFOREHAND) BUT WHEN I MET DR HEDDEN I FELT REALLY COMFORTABLE AND FELT LIKE HE WAS REALLY CARING, WHICH IS WHY I CHOSE HIM TO DO MY SURGERY. BUT AFTER I GOT MY SURGERY, IT'S LIKE ANY TIME I HAD A QUESTION ABOUT MY CC HE WOULD GET VERY IRRIRATED AND HIS RESPONSES GOT SHORTER AND SHORTER. DON'T BECOME A SURGEON IF YOU CAN'T ANSWER QUESTIONS IN AN ADULT MANNER. I'M MAD ABOUT HAVING TO GO TO SOMEONE ELSE TO FIX MY PROBLEM THAT HE PROMISED AND GUARANTEED HE WOULD FIX HIMSELF.

Doctor's Response

I am not sure who this patient is as of course it is always anonymous. This comment does allow for a learning experience. I would first like to apologize for making this patient feel as if I did not care. But patients do not get a capsule in one week. Typically when you have a tuba procedure the lower muscles are not detached. The plus side of this is more padding and less likely to feel the implant. The downside is sometimes the implant can ride high and appear as if there is a capsule when really it is just that the muscle has not completely released. We are the only practice that guarantees that if you get a hematoma, infection, or capsular contraction in the first three months that we will fix it at our office at no charge to the patient. This is the same for this patient. Typically if the implant is riding high or what appears to doctors unfamilliar with the TUBA procedure to appear like a capsule. The treatment is to massage, take vitamine E by mouth as well as singilair. These are the same treaments for a capsule and do work for the patients that follow these steps. The last choice for treating a capsule is surgery. Now when you are from out of state this process of waiting and following those instructions can be frustrating as it does take a month or two for it to resolve and look normal. I always offer to do surgery to fix it if the patient does not feel they can follow those options so I feel bad that some how this was taken the wrong way by her. But for all of you that are coming from out of state for TUBA... Please only choose this option if you are going to be able to follow those three steps if something like this was to happen otherwise choose one of the other incisions. I do hope this patient will come back and let us help her with any issues. I do take offense when she states we do not care.. I give every patient my cell number and access to myself 24/7 to make sure they end up happy. I frequently make house calls on patients and personally answer all of my own email. The problem when another surgeon jumps the gun and goes in and releases this inferior muscle as in this girl is that within a year she will be at a high risk of bottoming out so the other options should truly be performed first. lastly the abdominal marks if present always respond to massaging but it takes more then a week to go away and they typically do not show up if you wear the compression garment for one week at all times. I hope if this patient reads this she will call us to let us at least follower her so if she does get bottoming out from premature release of the muscle that we can fix this for her.

Oct 12th, 2011

I had a breast augmentation with Dr hedden 2 days ago. I absolutely love the results and my overall expereience at the facility. Of course I had done my research and went to other plastic surgeons that were nearby since I live in tn the last consultation I went to before Dr hedden made me feel extremely uncomfortable, he was very awkward and rude and acted like it was a bother I had to bring my two month old with me, but my husband had to work I had no choice. He reminded me of the creepy German guy off of the human centepide... And was charging 1,500 more. Finally I found Dr hedden on the internet and decided to go to a consult. I immediately loved it the most just from how nice their facility was and all the customers they had which showed me they had a lot of business. The nurses and receptionists were sooooo sweet and saw that I had an infant and told him about it so to be more helpful he called me back asap. He was very nice and helpful and filled me in on things non of the prior doctors had mentioned. My friend who came along even said wow they're all super nice. I scheduled my app for a month later due to a 5k race I had coming up and once I got there for surgery I waited maybe fifteen min before getting called back and talked to about sizing and all that. He then came for some final things and to write on me then I got some good feeling stuff and went to the operating room and was put to sleep. Next thing I know it was done with!! Of course I was in a lot of pain but she gave me some pain medicine instantly and I felt better right away. I hurt the most that day but two days later the only painful part is getting up from laying down. I live my results and all the staff and nurses were extremely nice and helpful. I have many friends wanting one and I'm certainly giving them his name. I only have in problem but that had to do with my app time changing from 10 to 730 and she just called last minute and was like you have to be here at 730 now...I just wish she would have warned me earlier... But that has nothing to do with Dr hedden or anything.... But thanks for the awesome experience and results :) you guys are my new best friends Haha

I am an out of town patient so it was hard to rate Dr Hedden. The communication prior to the surgery was a bit difficult as it's all done via email. Having said that, the experience still turned out perfect. I met Dr. Hedden for my consultant on the morning of my surgery (WOW). Just as he explained from the pics, I would benefit from the lipo (flanks & abs) and also the breast augmentation. I went through with all 3 procedures and could not be more pleased. My breasts look amazing (not all doctors do fantastic jobs with a lift. I'm definitely smaller in the waist after the lipo and Dr. Hedden said that I would continue to shrink until the end of the 3 months after surgery. It is still unbelievable that I just handed this dr all this $ on blind faith based on reviews I've read and my surgery went extremely well. I would highly recommend him based on my experience and on the reviews that I have read about him.

I had alot of factors to consider when looking at surgery, from price point, to medical issues; the staff at Dr Hedden's office met every single one of my concerns. My implants went in through my navel on a Friday morning and I was back to work on Monday. Within a week there was no pain, and after 3 weeks, I was completely healed up.As I've said, the staff was very accommodating. Dr Hedden himself seemed to always be in a hurry, but I'm sure Christmas is his busy season, and what matters are my results. You can definitely see why he's won so many awards for his work; everyone I've told has been shocked that my breasts aren't natural.

I had my breast augmentation and tummy tuck last month. I was from out of state and very concerned about the whole traveling issue. The procedure was TABA where they put the implants in through the tummy tuck so I have no scars on my breast. ( very cool ) I did not have much pain and the entire staff were wonderful. Dr Hedden was amazing and so reasuring. I did text him several times post op with pictures and questions and he was always quick to answer and reasure me. Thanks you doctor Hedden for restoring my body to what it use to be. You have a talent for caring and I will always be greatful for what you have done to change my life.

I had breast augmentation and a lift ($7500). My nipples are lop sided, uneven, and put me in a months worth of pain. The stitching is over lapped, caused infection, and I was given a 200cc's less than what I wanted. Being a professional buisness woman, I am embarrassed to be seen and highly upset. My surgery was seven months ago and the office refuses to return my calls. I have contacted the health dept., BBB, and the board of surgeons. Please use caution when using his services.

Doctor's Response

We reviewed our charts to find this patient, because our goal is always to make them happy. We do not charge $7500 for a lift with implants (it is $6500). We do not have any records of someone I have operated on getting 200cc less then they wanted as described by this patient. I believe she has responded under the wrong physician. But this does bring up several issues to discuss.... First we always let the patient pick the size implant, we try to give guidance but always allow them to pick the size. Second my policy has always been if there is a complication such as unpredictable scaring that needs revision then that is performed at no charge to the patient. The reason we have one of the largest breast practices in the southeast is because we put forth the extra effort to make sure you are happy with your results. I would hope that this patient would see her plastic surgeon again and express her unhappiness with the results so they can be treated.

Feb 22nd, 2011

Over the last year I have lost some excess weight through diet and exercise. Despite my extremely active exercise program I was still unable to loose specific pockets of body fat. Also, due to the weight loss, my face had lost fat and was looking aged; to include sunken eyes and deep smile lines. After coming to the realization that more exercise would not get rid of the body fat and more dieting only resulted in an increased fat loss from my face I decided to see a plastic surgeon. Based on multiple recommendations and outstanding experiences by friends, family, and co-workers I chose to see Dr. Hedden. During my consultation Dr. Hedden explained what needed to be done; he was extremely professional and informative. Just a couple of months later I underwent Smart Lipo to my abdomen and flanks, fat transfer to my lips,cheeks, smile lines, and under my eyes. I also had my tummmy tuck scar revised and Dysport injected into my forehead and crowsfeet. It was so nice to go to the surgery center there in Dr. Hedden's building. The staff was so nice and took such good care of me. I can't say enough how much I appreciate their part in my care. My results were absolutely incredible! Dr. Hedden exceeded every expectation I had!

I recently had breast implant surgery at Hedden Plastic Surgery Center. This was my very first ever cosmetic procedure. My Doc. was Dr. Christopher Schaffer. Not only am I pleased with my entire experience, but I am more than pleased with my results. My normal breast were fairly large but less full than I wanted after having two children. He told me exactly what to expect and also helped ease my mind over the size that would look right with my short stocky frame (as I call it) :-). I am 5'3 and weigh 138 lbs. My implants are 510 cc each and were put under the muscle with the incision under the breast. He made me feel comfortable during each visit prior to and after my procedure. The assisting staff is great as well. He calmed my nerves and I am so thankful that I was so trusting of his ability. At any point in the future I want plastic surgery, I know where to go. As a matter of fact, I plan to have him perform my tummy tuck this Summer. In my mind, there is no better place.

The Titan Laser treatment gave me a tightened facelift in under 30 minutes with zero downtime. There was not any evidence on my skin that I had anything done; except for the muscular tightening in my face. It was an instant facelift with the downtime of surgery. I am ecstatic!

Doctor's Response

It always supprises me when you try to go out of your way for a patient how they can still make coments like this. She is a patient of another doctor who performed breast augmentation on her. She developed a rupture and went to see her doctor in town who wanted to charge her over 8000$ to replace them. Most ruptures have issues such as a capsule that have to be treated and as such do take more time in the operating room. We explained that we would offer the same price we would if she had been origionally performed by us which gave her a substantial discount. She and her husband were given the quote which was about half of what her own surgeon quoted her and then they kept asking the nurse to have it reduced more. I explained to the nurse and the patient that the only way we could reduce it any more was if she allowed the warranty she had on the implant ( which basically gave the cost of the actual implant back 800$ back) to refund that cost to the practice we could then take that off the cost of putting them in and would not charge her to take care of the capsule. They agreed and proceeded. Surgery went great and she has a great result. She even had a capsule treated at no cost which should be helpful at preventing further issues. She came into the office several days later and wanted a check for the cost of the implant. We had explained to her the reason we were able to reduce the cost to more then half of what she had been quoted elsewhere was because of the reimbursed implant going to the practice. Understand she saved four thousand dollars on this procedure and still was given a discount through our office. I told the staff we to just give her the money back and yet she still writes this kind of comment??? We always try to treat every patient as if they were part of our family so we tend to give them discounts when they are having bad complications that their original surgeon should help them out with. My heart always goes out to them to try to make them feel better. It is ashamed people can post un true comments without explaining the entire situation.

Dr Hedden's staff does not know what policies or procedures are in place. I scheduled my surgery 3 weeks out and did not recieve my booklet of stuff not to do 2 weeks before surgery 2 days before my surgery. I played phone tag with the nurses about my medical history. Nothing was mentioned until 2 days before my surgery about blood work and that the results wouldnt even be back by my surgery. Alot of good that does if something happened and he needed to know my blood type. The staff was rude when I was giving them payment. The nurse instructed me when we finally did talk on the phone that to be at his office at 6:30 to get ready for surgery at 8am. I arrived at his office at 6:25 to find not a soul in the parking lot and the doors locked. Shortly after Dr hedden pulled in at 6:38 according to my iphone. Instructed us that he would be right with us. On top could not get my prescriptions called in more phone tag with nurses. Ended up having to go to a place in bham and instead of my regular pharmacy. I was going to have to stay in a hotel overnight in bham for my post op appointment the next day. So basically I was going to have to take care of myself. He acted very unprofessional with my mom. He did not try to diffuse the situation nor did he try to reassure me that I would be fine. He just cancelled my surgery.

Doctor's Response

This should be an example for all patients. When you live 30 minutes away from the practice take the time to come in for your history and physical. If you do not come in before surgery you can not get prescriptions before hand. her apt was 6:30 ( surgery at 8am). I arrived at 6:29, her mother ask me if I knew what time it was? I pulled my iphone out and said yes it is 6:29. I let them in, Her mother was anxious, upset with no way to calm her down and after she finished yelling, I asked her given how unhappy she is would it not be better to postpone as she appeared unhappy. I talk with the patient who said the issue of playing phone tag made her very angry with us. I appologized, asked at this point what would she like to do. She said she just wanted a refund. She stated I should have been here 30 minutes prior to the her. I explained that I understand all of her anxiety about the surgery and the phone tag issue but that I was on time and asked her why did she not just come to the office if she was having such a hard time being able to answer the phone ( she only lived 30 min away). When she would call she would give orders to only call her between 1pm and 3pm???? She stated she was too busy to come by the office. REMEMBER this is surgery, WE do thosands a year please follow all instructions or you will be nervous unsure, anxious as this patient.

Nearly 5 years ago, I had a reduction and lift which improved my appearance a great deal (made me look 10 lbs. lighter!). Although the surgery was successful and I was more pleased then I ever had been, still it was not quite right. My breasts were not as firm as I thought they should be due to my extra skin in that area. So for the first time, I seriously considered having an augmentation.It seemed almost ridiculous to me to have had a reduction and then turn right around and have implants! But after consulting with the doctor, I was confident that this was the direction I wanted to go.I had previous surgeries before this one last year, but was a little concerned and nervous about what it was going to feel like the implants were in. It seemed that having something foreign placed into my body would be uncomfortable and strange.We proceeded with the surgery, and amazingly enough, I felt great when I woke up from the procedure. There was some discomfort, but nothing compared to the horror stories I had heard from others. I was actually cutting-up with the nurse and staff during my recovery period! In just a matter of days, I was back to my regular routine and was not in much pain after the surgery. (Drugs are our friends)! Basically, after the first couple of days, I started taking Extra Strength Tylenol instead of the pain medication prescribed. There was just one restriction after surgery and that was not to lift anything heavy for 6 weeks.It has been months since my surgery. The scars have disappeared, I have no limitations and I can even sleep on my stomach! The most amazing thing to me is that my breasts do not feel like anything has been added, they just look great!My younger friends are quite envious of my younger figure since this surgery! The best thing about my augmentation is they look real, not fake! This is a bonus for me. People assume they are mine! I encourage anyone considering an augmentation to have a consultation with the doctor. They will answer any and all questions and educate you on the procedure. It's one of the best decisions I have ever made!

After 3 kids and "several birthdays" later my body was starting to disappear in a sense. I didn't like who I looked at in the mirror because it wasn't me. I went in for a consultation with Dr.Hedden because I have heard so many good things from so many people. He listened to my concerns and what I was having problems with. He took a look at the areas and told me what I needed to achieve the maximum results. I scheduled my surgery for a couple weeks later. The staff were very helpful with scheduling and making sure I had and knew everything I needed to at the time and told me to not hesitate to call if anything else came up. I had my surgery and WOW. Thank you so much Dr.Hedden and staff for everything. I can hold my head high again!

I traveled over 800 miles to use dr hedden for a breast augmentation. 1. NOBODY EVER ANSWERS THE PHONE AT THE NURSES STATION, you have to leave a message and you may or may not get a call back, had it not been for the outrageous cancellation fees I would've cancelled. I arrived at 11:45am for my pre-op/consult and waited in the pre-op room for FIVE LONG, AGONIZING, TORTUREOUS HOURS before dr hedden came in the room for 5 mins to ask me a few questions and draw on me. I wasn't given any advice, direction or anything regarding the cc's I should receive in order to achieve my desired size. I then waited in the pre-op room for another HOUR before I had surgery. At the post-op he was there for another 5 min, took the dressing off my incision, took pics and left and I haven't heard anything from his office since, no email, call or anything to check and see if I'm o.k, died, got an infection or anything. It's a drive thru breast augmentation, you get what you pay for. They overbook and schedule to get more money at the expense of service

All I can say is "WOW". Two weeks ago I went to Dr. Hedden concerning the ever deeping wrinkles on my forhead, around my eyes, and my upper lip. I had already been told by friends how painful the injections from both botox and juvaderm can be and was of course a little apprehensive. I was ecstatic when Dr Hedden and his nurse Traci told me that they could numb the skin up with a cream as well as let me breath some "laughing gas". They were so nice and made me feel completely comfortable; I don't even recall feeling anything other than a little pressure. I am now 2 weeks out and the results far exceeded all my expectations; I have to take a double take in mirrors and smile! I will definitely be using Dr. Hedden for all my future cosmetic care!

For many years I have wanted a nicely shaped derrire. I have run marathons, engaged in rigorous exercise routines, but no matter what I did, I was never able to attain the look I desired. I finally began looking at surgical alternatives, did a LOT of research, and decided that to obtain the results I was looking for would probably require buttock augmentation. A consultation with Dr. Hedden confirmed this would procedure would likely provide the results I desired. Below I will share a very brief story of my first 6 weeks post-operatively.Days 1-7: This was a pretty uncomfortable time for me. I felt very, very sore and it was difficult to find a comfortable position. However, the pain medication and muscle relaxers made it bearable. Each day got a little better.Days 8-14: Bandages off ... able to see results so the discomfort has been worth it! By Day 14, I went back to work full-time (office type job). I am comfortable sitting at work; you don't sit on the implants as they are placed above the part of your "bottom" that touches a seat. And, best of all, my bottom "feels" natural to the touch ... you can't feel the implants from the outside! However, still sore at times.Days 15-21: By the end of the third week, I was able to fully return to all activities except exercise. Still sore at times, but rather than feeling "painful" it feels more like feels like I have worked out really hard on a Stairmaster.Days 22-28: Main challenge has been to not "over-do-it" ... I feel great and want to work-out ... I tried to exercise a little ... but my body was just not ready. Don't cheat and do any exercise routine early ... it is NOT worth it. I tend to be impatient; as a result I am a little frustrated that I am not back to 100%.Days 29-35: Still a little sore, but does get better every day.Days 36-42: The implants now feel like a natural part of my body and the result is absolutely what I wanted. I have returned to all activities that I engaged in pre-operatively. I still wear the same size clothing, but the fit is SO MUCH better ... I am very pleased with how much better my favorite, worn-out jeans look :)

I recently went to Dr.Hedden for lip augmentation. After consulting with him he decided to use Juvaderm. After he explained everything to me I was very excited to get it. I love my lips they have never looked better. The staff along with Dr.Hedden are so nice and answer any questions that you may have. I was so pleased that I'm going back to have lipo in the future. I have told all my friends they need to go and see Dr.Hedden.

I've had several lasers done with Dr.Hedden along with Botox and skin care regiments. The staff is always willing to help! Dr.Hedden helped me get my skin back in line... I've had trouble with acne as well as acne scars. He recommended trying several laser treatments to help control breakouts and skin care products to go with it! He always seems to care about his patients individually instead of treating them in a generic sort of way. I'm very happy with my results especially the fraxel laser which has improved my skins tone and appearance alot!

After having my third child, I decided to have a Breast Augmentation done. I chose Dr Hedden initially because a friend recommended him. After going for my consultation, I knew I had made the right choice. All the nurses and office staff were friendly and seemed to enjoy being there. Dr. Hedden made me feel comfortable and explained the procedure thoroughly.I came for my procedure two weeks later and was home by lunch time. Even though my surgery was done on a Friday, Dr Hedden met me at his office Saturday morning for a post-operative check. I could not be more pleased with the results and I have recommended several friends who also had great experiences and results.

by Terri, Alabaster AL on Feb 3rd, 2010

I had a tummy tuck and a breast reduction done at the same time by Dr Hedden. A relative of mine had gone to him and utilized his spa services and was extremely pleade with their care and surgery results. I was also happy when I found out that he does not charge for consultations. I was happy to see the waiting room was full; because, who wants to go to a surgeon that doesn't have patients at a busy time of day? I was greeted at check in by very friendly and curteous staff. When I met with Dr Hedden he was very professional and listened to all my concerns about my body. He explained what was going on and what would be needed to correct the issues. I was able to schedule my surgery within a week. On the day of surgery I was nervous but the staff was kind when I remembered I had forgotten my sports bra; it was great because the office is conveniently located to shopping and my husband went and bought one while I was in surgery. I think he liked getting out and about while I was in surgery too. I was also glad that I wasn't required to were a surgical bra they supplied and was instead able to wear my favorite type of sports bra. I don't remembr much except the kind words before falling asleep and again in the recovery helping me dress. I was seen the very next day and was happy to have Dr Hedden look things over and reassure me that it all looked normal and great! I have to say once I healed I was ecstatic about my results!

Great Physician!!! show details Great Physician!!!
by Candi on Feb 1st, 2010

I've had several procedures done at Dr Hedden's office. I've had Breast Augmentation, Implant Exchange and Smart Lipo for surgeries but I've also had several laser procedures such as laser genesis to help improve/lighten scars and laser hair removal to several areas. I trust Dr Hedden and his staff completely. Not only is he a nice, caring, man with awesome bedside manner but he is very honest. He never made me feel like he was just trying to "take my money" as several physicians have in the past. I have read several reviews and heard from others that they were really pleased with Dr Hedden and his work but some have complained about the wait time. I honestly think that this is strictly related to the fact that Dr Hedden is just the best plastic surgeon in town. Therefore, he stays very busy and that includes a longer wait time for appointments. So, I never minded the wait because I knew the results would be worth it!! However, I was able to schedule my procedures in a timely manner. I never had to wait more than 2-3 weeks to have my actual procedure done. His staff tried to accomodate my schedule as much as possible. I am very pleased with the results of my past surgeries and am scheduled to have a Rhinoplasty at his office in March. I honestly trust Dr Hedden and his staff completely with my outward appearance to others because I know that he takes the time to sculpt my body and features to perfection!! Thanks Dr Hedden for being a caring physician!!

I had breast augmentation with Dr. Hedden seen years ago and I was completely satisfied. I went back recently to talk about some face work. I thought maybe i needed my eyes done. He did not rush to sign me up for surgery, but nstead suggested that my eyes could be improved by botox injections. I had the injections and two weeks later I can not believe the difference. I look so much moe rested and my eyes are not nearly as puffy in the morning. Friends even asked if I cut my hair differently. I will definately have surgery when Dr, Hedden feels that it is my best option.

Jan 18th, 2010

About 7 years ago, after having my second child, I decided to have breast augmentation. Following 2 pregnancies and nursing, my breasts were mostly loose skin.I went to see a reputable plastic surgeon in Birmingham; and I had my surgery several months later. I was never completely satisfied because the implants were too high in my chest and did not look natural.Approximately 5 years after my first surgery, I went back to my original surgeon. He recommended replacement of the implants.another $6000. A friend of mine told me to go see Dr. Hedden. Being a nurse, I knew the importance of a second opinion. Dr. Hedden recommended a minor lift and lowering of the infra-mammory fold. These procedures were about half the cost of what the other surgeon recommended. Dr. Hedden's recommendation made sense to me, so I proceeded.Dr. Hedden and his staff made me feel so comfortable; and they went out of their way to make sure I was satisfied. I had minimal pain and bruising following the second surgery (unlike the first surgery).I am extremely pleased with my breasts now. Before the procedure, I did not want to wear anything that showed my chest, such as low-cut shirts or swimsuits. Now, I feel more youthful and natural; and I certainly don't look like I've had 2 children! I am a full 34C; and I would go back and do it all over again with Dr. Hedden.Breast augmentation has changed the way I look at myself. I would highly recommend Dr. Hedden for anyone considering any plastic surgery. He has an artistic way of looking at his patients and his work is superb.

Rebecca show details Rebecca
Nov 14th, 2009

My name is Rebecca. I am 39 years old and got breast implants back in December. I have thought about implants my entire adult life. I have always felt disproportioned. I am 5' 8" and weigh 150 lbs. I was a 36 B.I had spoken with a few doctors in the city I live and even went to see a couple of them. Each time I decided not to do it. About 2 years ago I had to have a hysterectomy and really felt a loss. I wanted kids of my own and knew this would now never happen. One of the reasons I had not wanted breast implants was if I ever had a child I would want to breast feed. (I am not sure if this really is a factor anymore) That was my last obstacle. I decided to do it.I found Dr. Hedden via the internet, I researched to make sure he really had a license and emailed the clinic. Each time they responded! The girls answering the phone were very nice. The doctor was very professional and made me feel comfortable.My husband and I made the appointment and went to meet the team. Since I had talked to so many people and gone to a couple doctors, I had already decided to get the size of C; in fact, I was so sure that this was what I wanted that I had already bought a bra for after the surgery.The nurse was very friendly and made me feel at ease. When I told them the size I wanted they said they wanted me to try some on (and not think about size but looks and feel). All the people I talked to and had seen had never offered this option and I had never read about this on the internet. I would not recommend anyone get breasts without doing this first. My husband and I had a wonderful time trying on different sizes and types. We both agreed on one of them and called the nurse back in. Since there were no sizes listed I had no idea what I had picked.Much to our surprise it was a D. The C seemed way too small. We decided to go with the D size. They assured me with my size and frame this size was not too big and that I could even go larger. No other doctor had taken time to help me decide and take the time to pick the right size. The doctor said that I was able to change my mind right up to the time of the surgery.The day of the surgery I went in I still remember the operating room. I was not awake for long and drifted into a peaceful dream state. I do not really remember much about getting up or going to the motel. I remember waking up and being nauseated. I threw up a couple of times.Everyone says that it feels like a huge weight on your chest, but I did not feel that. One of the reasons may have been that I exercised my chest muscles and my abs to make them stronger for the surgery. I exercise a great deal and when I am at my best weight my breasts would go down to a size A.First when I saw "the twins" as I called them I thought I may have made a mistake. They were huge and like "in my face". It hurt to move, breathe etc.. I used a lot of ice and really took care not to do anything and follow the instructions. I had read to many horror stories about people who felt better and did too much and created problems. I had learned a great way of getting up when was rolling on my side and pushing up from the side. I was very careful not to do too much.The only thing I did was go to work too early. I had the surgery on Wednesday and went to work on Monday. Although I work on a computer which did not hurt I had a 69 mile drive. That drive is what did me in I was miserable.To me at first my chest did not look like the great chest shots you see on TV. They were almost ugly! Up in the air one more swollen or moved over, lop sided. I saw something different (that I did not like) every day. Slowly they started to fall in to place; then I thought they looked to small. I was still swollen up high in my chest for several weeks as expected. This swelling pushed them out to the side, so no cleavage. Then slowly the swelling went down and they started to come together and now I love them. I feel I am in proportion and can work out and loose my weight without loosing my chest! Now that they are older they feel like they are part of my body; however, now refer to them as "the girls".I am very thankful I went with the D because the C would have been too small. I did not tell anyone at work or my husband's relatives about the surgery and still nobody knows. I know it is hard to believe.I think by the looks many people do notice something but are not sure what it is. I have gotten many compliments on other things.Here are some examples: (all from women)"Your frame looks great you must be exercising again""You look great! How much weight have you lost?""I love that shirt on you; you know it makes your boobs look really big!""You stomach looks so flat!"My Mom knew about the surgery and she said that I look like I am in proportion and that they don't look too large. If I had gone with anyone beside Dr. Hedden I probably would have gotten the C and still been too small for my frame.Now 5 months later, I am exercising normal and doing everything I used to. Every once in a while I get a twinge or feel funny but I can tell that this happens less and less all the time. I am very happy with my looks and really like going to Victoria's Secret and getting asked my size! I like looking at myself in the mirror. If I had it to do over again, the only thing I would change is, to get it done earlier! My husband? He loves them too! Before the surgery he would never say he wanted me to get them because he did not want me to feel like I had too, but he does enjoy them and I catch him looking at me all the time! I love it!

Best Doctor Ever! show details Best Doctor Ever!
by TMK on Nov 13th, 2009

I had my Breast Aug redone for the second time by Dr. Hedden and I am absolutely beyond happy. My first PS made me feel like just another patient but Dr. Hedden made me feel like part of the family.. He was very professional along with his staff and on the same hand they were very compassionate to my needs. I would recommend him to anyone I know is looking to have plastic surgery done. If I ever decide to have anything else done I will definetly be looking for him to do it.

Sep 16th, 2009

I am 37 years old and the mom of 3 teen children, all of whom I breast fed. I was always small going through school and could never wear the type of clothes I wanted to wear. After breast feeding three babies I dried up to be even smaller. So at 37 I decided to do something special for myself.I was going to get a breast augmentation. I made the appointment with Dr. Hedden. His staff is very professional to make you feel at ease about something you may be self conscience about. They treated me as if they had known me for years. On my first appointment I was told to bring different size bras that I might like to be. So I did C's and D's. They put my husband and I in a room and gave us several different size implants to try on play with to see where we wanted to be. I decided on 425 CC round under the muscle.Dr. Hedden came in examined and measured my chest wall and breast and said that would work and would make me around full C and small D. He explained the surgery and the recovery and answered all my questions. (I took a list of them.) I wanted this so bad but was very scared until I left this appointment. Leaving I felt very sure, safe and excited.I arrived on the morning of the surgery butterflies in stomach, my husband got to come back and stay with me until time to go to the O.R. We kissed good bye and off I was to surgery. The anesthesiologist explained to me what she would be doing and we began.After the surgery I don't really remember a lot until we were almost home and I live an hour away. When we got home my husband helped me into the recliner and told me things went great and he had pain pills if I needed them. I just wanted to sleep. Around 4 hours later I awoke asking for a pain pill, feeling sore and aching. I slept through the nite. The next morn he got me up and helped me take a shower. My first view of the new girls!! There were still tape across my incisions and some bruising. They were still high but wow I was a D cup for sure.The shower felt great and back on with the sports bra. The recliner was my home for the day because I was sore and stiff but not too much pain. No more pain pills all day. The next morning I had a family reunion to go to that people had flown in from all over, so I didn't want to miss, so I went and no one even noticed except my mom said you are moving a little funny. I told her I had slept funny and had a stiff back. (sry mom.) I told no one about the surgery except my daughters and husband.In the days to follow I got my strength back in my arms and it wasn't too long that the girls started to drop. I has been 13 months now since my surgery and I have no regrets. It has been everything I imagined and I can now wear all the cute clothes that I have always wanted to wear.So expect 3 days to really feel good and a couple of weeks before you can sleep on your side. But all in all I would recommend it to anyone longing for it like I was.And the staff and Dr. Hedden will make you feel so comfortable while you are there.

I have read all of the reviews on Dr Hedden and had heard about him from several friends. I saw him in consultation for a facelift. The day started off as a busy clinic for his office. I asked the nurse if he is always so busy. She stated he has a policy of never turning anyone down for a consultation and that the demand has just grown significantly for his procedures. The wait was about 20 minutes. He then came in went over everything with me and made me feel very comfortable. I had my facelift about 2 months ago and he is incredible. I never thought I would ever look so good. He is trully worth any wait. I did not experience any wait but from some of the responses I assumed some people did. I just believe his is a great plastic surgeon under high demnad and some things are truly worth the wait. Thank you Dr Hedden

I had lost my breast after having my children and we had heard great things about Dr Hedden. We went for our consultation and from the moment we entered the office we were treated wonderful. His staff were very caring. He appears to be in high demand as his waiting room was packed. I did enjoy the slight wait as I was able to talk with several other woman there for the same thing and one was back for her post surgery visit. She was a godsend she made me feel very good about my choice. Dr Hedden examined me and told me which choices I had for fixing what my children had taken away. I was so nervous and he was so nice and made me feel very comfortable. His nurses were very helpful and I scheduled my surgery. I scheduled the surgery and just recently had it done. He did a wonderful job! It almost makes me want to cry...my breast are back again, they are even more beautiful then what they started out as. I can't thank Dr Hedden and his staff enought. The wait was worth it. Thank You Dr Hedden

I had such a good experience that I have been back for botox. I also had laser services which took years off of my face and the facial i had was wonderful.
