Feeling better than ever about myself

I had my breast augmentation in October of 2013 by Dr. Kara Criswell. I searched for quite a while to find the right Plastic Surgeon to complete my augmentation, and I knew that Criswell & Criswell was the right fit almost immediately after walking in their doors. Prior to the operation, I was made aware of all the details, made comfortable with the staff and Dr. Kara Criswell. The day of my operation, I could hardly hold in my excitement. The operation was an absolute success, and I felt very comfortable and relaxed throughout. My husband was there to take me out of the operating room. Dr. Kara Criswell had told me what to expect directly after the operation, but I truly felt far better than what I had anticipated in the days following my breast augmentation. Just under two months post opp, I am working out just as hard as ever, feeling better than ever about myself, and looking forward to my future check ups at Criswell & Criswell.

card-lizDr. Kara Criswell is a superior plastic surgeon. I’m a nurse, and I had heard that people I work with in the operating room, and after my surgery I know it for myself. I was nervous and unsure about plastic surgery, but knew I didn’t want to go through life with my body the way it was. From my first appointment with Dr. Criswell she was warm and caring and listened attentively to what I said. Her professionalism and confidence erased any concerns. She never tried to “sell” me on surgery, but talked with me about what I wanted to change. I looked at lots of before and after pictures which helped me understand the surgeries and outcomes better. Both she and her staff were always courteous, making me feel special and at ease each time I was in the office.

After my first appointment I was very happy I had consulted her and knew I wanted her to do my breast lift and tummy tuck. I had read about her online and knew she had majored in art in college, so I wasn’t surprised that she did amazing work. At my first post-op appointment I was so excited to see her and she seemed to be as happy as I was! I am thrilled with the changes in myself and feel like she changed my life. My husband and I couldn’t be happier!

Now I know why she is so highly recommended by others. I urge anyone considering any plastic surgery to go to her. She is absolutely the best!

card-janeneI’m so glad I chose Dr. Bryan Criswell to do my “Mommy Make-Over”. He was AWSOME! I couldn’t have asked for better results. He performed a breast augmentation on my best friend two years ago and she told me he was an excellent surgeon. She was right! He spent lots of time with me, listening to what I wanted and making sure I understood exactly how the surgery would go. I asked him a ton of questions that I had written down, and he sat with me and answered every one. I knew he was the right one to do my surgery. The results of my procedures were everything I could have hoped for. I couldn’t be happier with my incredible new body!

Dr. Criswell has a beautiful office and an amazing staff. They always made me feel special and at ease. After my surgery, the nurses were responsive and helpful every time I called. Carol, his nurse, was especially helpful, and pretty funny too! One morning I noticed a lot of drainage and it really scared me. I called Carol and she reassured me helped me understand what to do. She even offered to meet me at the office. All was well though, and the draining was normal. Because of their caring concern, I felt someone was always there for me. I’m sure that helped my recovery process.

I highly recommend Dr. Criswell and can’t say enough about him. I would gladly recommend him to anyone considering plastic surgery.

I am 6 weeks post op from a breast reduction and lift. I am a Nurse Practitioner and am very familiar with the medical field and made sure I did plenty of research before choosing a surgeon. The very first appointment I had with Dr. Bryan Criswell, I was impressed. From the office décor, friendliness of the receptionist, the nurse and most of all Dr. Criswell. I walked in there with a list of questions and he patiently answered them all. As medical professionals, we sometimes are not the best patients. His sense of expertise and compassion were apparent from the beginning. I knew then, I made the right decision. Post operatively, my 12 year daughter met me in recovery and had a chance to speak with the Dr. Criswell. She was very concerned and protective over her mom, of course, and had a few questions herself to ask. He sat there next to my daughter and made her feel as if she was truly important and told her she had great questions, and answered them all to her satisfaction. 6 weeks out and I feel great, my incisions are healing beautifully and I have never been so happy with a physician/staff: I wish I would’ve had the procedure sooner, it has definitely changed my life for the better! Thank you Dr. B. Criswell.

I was referred to Dr. Bryan Criswell after radiation and a lumpectomy for breast cancer. The first plastic surgeon I saw would not consider anything but a mastectomy and radical surgery. Dr. Criswell listened to my concerns and was honest about the pros and cons of surgery on skin that has been radiated. He was able to use a small implant to restore volume to the lumpectomy site and excise the existing scar. The results are great. He and his staff are caring, compassionate and make you feel comfortable and at ease. His commitment to women that have experienced breast cancer and need reconstruction is admirable.

Dr. Bryan Criswell is professional and I really felt like he understood my goal of what I wanted to look like post-op. He was very friendly and I always felt like he willing to spend however much time I needed answering questions. I am very impressed by his skill and his portfolio speaks for itself.

After nursing my two daughters for a year each, my breasts were unattractive and had lost any size they had (went from a D nursing to an A afterward). I knew I wanted to have an augmentation and after doing extensive research and having consultations at two places in Charlotte, going with Dr. Bryan Criswell was an easy choice. Not only did he understand my goals (to look as natural as possible, among other things), his staff was courteous, professional, and I trusted them. They were able to accommodate my schedule, answered the many questions I had, and the follow-up appointments to check on my progress were a great benefit. I am SO incredibly happy with my choice and have recommended his practice to so many people. Very impressed and so happy to have my confidence back. What a great decision!

I am 61 years old and had breast implants for 23 years. For medical reasons, both implants needed to be removed and I was very concerned with what the outcome would be if I decided not to do replacements. It has only been 1 week and I am extremely happy. I know I did what was right for me, and I am thrilled that I chose Dr. Bryan Criswell in Charlotte N.C. He is definitely the best.

This is the first surgery I have had not relating to cancer and for me! I have my 20 year old stomach and chin back again! So happy!

I originally came to Dr. Kara Criswell for a “redo” of my breast reconstruction after a double mastectomy. My original plastic surgeon did a “botched job”. Following Dr. Criswell’s reconstruction I have never been happier. I then came for chin and abdomen lipo. Again, she was incredible as were the results.

Dr. Kara Criswell did a fantastic job! I could not be happier with the results of my breast augmentation. Very easy recovery with minimal pain as well. I wanted a fuller chest that still looked as natural as possible and that was proportionate with my body and she did just that. I would 100% recommend her to anyone wanting to get the procedure done.

She really listens to the result you are looking for and does what she thinks you will be the most happy with. A friend of mine went to her for a breast augmentation she looked fantastic after the procedure as well.

Absolutely the best experience I could have ever imagined. When searching for a surgeon to perform my breast augmentation I was recommended to Criswell and Criswell. I came home from my consultation and told my husband that this was the team that would perform my surgery. Dr. Bryan Criswell and his staff are simply wonderful. On my first visit I met Kristin and Victor and instantly felt at ease and taken care of. On the morning of my consultation I got some life altering medical news and was still shaken up when I walked in for my appointment. When I told Kristin what was going on she was amazing and even sent me a note later inquiring how I was coping with the news I had shared with her. I just knew right away that I would get the procedure done, and get it done at Criswell. Dr. Criswell also listened to exactly the look I was going for and made sure to advise me correctly on size. I have since had the surgery and am very pleased with the results. All of my follow up appointments have been great and I will absolutely go back for any other work I want to have performed. And, a shout out to the staff at the surgery center that was absolutely terrific. I nearly changed my mind right before going back for the surgery and the nurse calmed me down and made me feel great about my decision to have the procedure. Simply a fantastic experience from start to finish. I will sing the praises of Criswell and Criswell to all that will listen!! (Oh, and the flowers they sent the day after my surgery was the icing on the cake!) Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

From the moment I walked into their office I was treated with nothing but kindness and care. After having two kids my breast were a little saggy and Dr. Bryan Criswell gave me a breast lift. And I absolutely LOVE my results. He took the time to answer all of my questions and made the entire experience as painless as possible. Even after the surgery they called to make sure I was adjusting ok and even sent flowers to my home..how great is that! And I must also give praise to Kristen who works in their office. She has to be the nicest person I have ever met. She actually takes the time to get to know you and does everything possible to make sure all of your needs are met. Any type of cosmetic surgery I may have in the future will only be done by Dr. Criswell!! He and his staff are all outstanding.

I had been thinking about getting implants for a long time and finally got up the nerve to do it and saved enough to pay for it. Even though I had been planning on it for a long time, I was really nervous about it. I chose Dr. Criswell because she is a woman, and I thought that would be easier for me, and because I had read great reviews about her and her practice. It’s kinda silly, but when I got to my appointment, I was actually almost shaking I was so nervous. Dr. Criswell’s nurse was great, and Dr. Criswell was wonderful. She immediately put me at ease and made me feel OK and answered all of my questions. She spent a lot of time with me, even though her office seemed really busy.

She let me know I could see her as much as I needed and literally told me that I could call 24 hours a day with any questions or problems. Surgery went well, although I did get a bit nauseated from the anesthesia medicine. Right after surgery, I felt like someone was sitting on my chest! I called Dr. Criswell and she said that this was normal and that it would go away. It did, thank goodness. I don’t know if my experience was normal or not, but I saw Dr. Criswell about 6 times after surgery. My implants have now settled (for me it took about 2 months) and I am thrilled. If there was anything I could have known beforehand it would be how quickly I could return to normal activity (I was afraid of not being about to shower or lift my arms right after surgery. Not true. I was doing this the day after surgery). All in all, I wish I had done it sooner, but I am glad I went with Dr. Criswell.

Great experience. I chose Dr. Criswell because she is a female plastic surgeon and because of her great reviews.

There are no words to express how pleased I am with my post-surgical results. I feel beautiful and look natural.
