Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.

Dr. Fix has a double personality. As long as everything is going well he has the most caring bedside manner you could ever expect; however, if you have complications it's everyone's fault but his. I have serious complications from my reconstruction. He refuses to accept responsibility, laying blame everywhere but the outdated procedure he used for my reconstruction. Women, be informed. Dig deep for research into CURRENT best practices for reconstruction. A nice cosmetic result is not worth compromising the rest of your body.
As a breast cancer survivor who had failed attempts at reconstruction over the last 5 years, I had almost given up hope for reconstruction following bilateral mastectomy. Mine was a complicated case, and I was actually referred to him by my 2nd plastic surgeon in 5 years. Dr. Fix and his staff are amazing! I am a health care provider myself, and after the prior failed attempts was quite anxious. I had so many questions, but they never treated me with anything but respect. They were patient and understanding with me, and he did what 2 other surgeons had told me was impossible. I feel great now - thanks to him and Dee. I would refer anyone to him. My only regret is that I didn't know anything about him from the beginning of my journey - I would have gone to him 1st, and probably would never have had the multitude of complications that I had. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Fix and his staff.
Dr. Fix is a perfectionist. I needed to undergo reconstruction. It happened to be a bit more of a complex procedure. He is indeed a master in the field. He artfully resculpted the breasts that really look great and restored my self-esteem. He is so compassionate--The morning after my surgery he came to see me and he was so sad and dissappointed to tell me he needed to take me back to OR for excessive bleeding (we knew there was a risk of that happening since I had excessive scar tissue from previous surgery). After that all healing process has been very smooth. I had a concern 3 weeks after surgery. His office said to come in at 1:30p that day. He saw me within a matter of minutes and assured me all was just fine. I highly recommend Dr. Fix with your breast reconstruction surgical needs. He is a "gem"!!
