I’ve been wanting implants for 15 years and during that time, I’ve heard rave reviews about Dr. Bauer. I’ve actually seen his work and his natural results, so when it was time to finally get rid of these baby A cup breast, there was no doubt in my mind who I would call to perform my surgery. I’m 12 days post breast augmentation surgery with Dr. Bauer and I couldn’t be happier with my recovery thus far. From the initial consultation to the post op appointment my experience has been nothing less than stellar. The Swan Centers Private Surgical Center is 5 star as well as the front desk staff, surgery coordinator, and nurses. Dr. Bauer has awesome bedside manner and a positive attitude which makes it even easier to feel at ease and put your trust in him. I’m 5 foot 3 inches and 123 pounds. We decided on 325 cc silicone smooth round moderate profile implants placed submuscular with an inframammary incision. This approach took me from a 32 A to a 32 C, exactly what I wanted. Although I’m still in the recovery process my breast are the perfect size for me look like I was born with them. My friends have already been complimenting me on my boobs and they haven’t even dropped and fluffed yet. 🙂 Having breast augmentation is a huge decision and it’s important that you choose the right plastic surgeon. I’m so glad I chose Dr. Bauer and the fabulous staff at the Swan Center.

I had the greatest experience with the swan center! My surgeon was Dr Bauer. He was awesome!! He answered all of my questions and his nurse was the best. I had my surgery back in 2009 and I still love the work that he did!

Dr. Bauer and his staff at The Swan Center of Plastic Surgery were top notch, amazing professionals. I was confident from the beginning that I was in great hands. His nurses were exceptionally knowledgeable and friendly, they made me feel like a close friend, that I could trust with my real concerns and feelings of myself and my body. Dr. Bauer was very delicate and polite always showed great disposition and energy. I perceived that he really enjoys what he does and he trusts his skills and experience, which reassured me of my right choice of surgeon. I am only about 2 and a half weeks post op and I feel phenomenal! When I expressed my satisfaction to the nurses they keep telling me it will only get better after they settle in a couple of months from now! I can’t wait to see my final results!

The Swan Center is a beautiful facility and it came highly recommended by several people I knew.  From start to finish I was very impressed by the staff, especially, the nurses.  They are all very warm and friendly and make you feel very comfortable.  I also emailed them frequently post op with questions and received responses within the same day.  Also, as a working mom of 2 (who is always running late for something), I found that it was incredibly helpful how there was very little to no downtime when you arrived for your appointment.  They will try their absolute best to respect the time you were given for your appointment.  All my pre-op and post-op appointments were handled the same way, efficiently and thoroughly.   Before picking the Swan Center I went to 2 other consultations and I knew Dr. Bauer would be my doctor because there was just too big of a gap between Dr. Bauer and the other 2 doctors who are also well known in the industry and respected.  It has only been 6 weeks but I already get comments on how natural and wonderful my breast aug. looks.  Dr. Bauer is definitely a perfectionist and puts safety first, which is exactly what you want when someone is performing surgery on you.   Highly recommend Swan Center and Dr. Bauer if you’re considering breast augmentation.

Great so far!

So far my experience with D. Bauer has been great. I liked his staff from my first phone call. They took the time to speak to me and shared personal experiences, I felt very welcomed. I made my appointment for 9:30 am, filled out the demographics in less than 10min , but still had to wait for a bit over 30 min. The nurse was very nice, explained a lot to me, when finally Dr. Bauer came to see me, I found him to be a very polite and sweet person. He explained my options and later came to look at me at take my measurements. I felt very comfortable overall. I have scheduled my breast augmentation and cant wait to see my final results!

Being a guy I want sure of the whole cosmetic…

Being a guy I want sure of the whole cosmetic surgery thing, but it certainly peaked my interest as at 47 years old I wasn’t getting any younger looking. I had bags under my eyes as a result of heredity that made me look much older, so I went in for a consultation with Dr. Fardo and his staff. From the moment I opened my mouth to speak to the receptionist I was treated like royalty….really. Everyone was so nice and professional and not once did I ever feel I was being scrutinized or made to fee vane (understood…. that is what they do for a living). After hearing about the procedure from Dr. Fardo, he probably spend an additional 30 minutes answering my questions and making me feel at ease regarding my concerns. So after reviewing the cost I gave them my deposit right then as I knew I did not have to seek another opinion or estimate….I felt just too comfortable there. I returned in three days to have the procedure done and though I was very nervous the staff did everything to calm my nerves. The pre-op nurse was great…the anesthesiologist was great, and of course Dr. Fardo was great too. My results are fantastic and definitely exceeded my expectations. I am so glad I chose Dr. Fardo and his staff to perform my procedure. I highly recommend this Doctor and the entire staff at the Swann center for anyone considering having cosmetic surgery.
