Plastic Surgery Reviews in Charlotte

Thank you so much for your humor and sensitivity today.

I highly recommend Dr. Criswell and can’t say enough about him

I’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.

Dr. Criswell was so nice

I am thrilled with the changes in myself and feel like she changed my life

Dr. 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!

Thank you so much for your humor and sensitivity

Dear Jen, Thank you so much for your humor and sensitivity today. You were able to turn a rather embarrassing office visit into a time of giggles and smiles. I would like to schedule my eye lid surgery for the last Monday in June 2011. Please let me know when I should contact the office; I would like to get the schedule set so I can better plan the rest of my summer vacation. Be sure to thank Dr. Criswell for me and ask if He’ll throw in one of the “waffle” robes when I have my tummy tuck in 2012!

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.

by Leah

Definitely changed my life for the better!

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.

by Katrina

What a great decision!

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!

He and his staff are caring and compassionate

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.

by MH

I have received many compliments on my new look

I had consultations for my procedure with more than 1 other doctor in Charlotte, and Dr. Kara was the clear choice from the beginning. No other plastic surgeons could even compare to Dr. Criswell. She is extremely talented and I am overjoyed with my results. She is the kind of doctor who listens to the results you are looking for and actually works to achieve those results. I did not feel like my desires were overlooked and never felt mis-led about what results were realistic. The customer service is outstanding. Throughout my planning stages, I never felt uncomfortable asking a question and never felt overwhelmed. The staff members are true professionals who really know how to please a client. Also, their facilities are literally second to none. The environment is lovely and extremely comforting. They even sent me gorgeous flowers during my recovery! Since my surgery, I have received many compliments on my new look. I feel so lucky to have Dr. Kara as my surgeon and I can’t thank their entire staff enough.

by Valerie

Excellent staff

I have used Dr Criswell for botox and fillers and she always does an excellent job. She will discourage a procedure she feels will not give good results and is excellent in explaining pros and cons of options. Excellent staff.

I am very happy with my results!

I had a wonderful experience from the moment I walked through the door. I was greeted with a smile. The entire staff is very friendly and welcoming. All my questions were answered and I never felt pressured or rushed. During my pre-op appointment, all my post-op instructions were given. I felt confident with knowing what to expect on the day of surgery and how to care for myself once I got home. On surgery day, I was a little bit nervous but I was reassured that it was normal and immediately felt at ease. During my recovery at home, flowers were delivered to me from Criswell and Criswell which made my day. I am now 1 week after surgery and couldn’t be any happier. I felt comfortable every step of the way. It’s a very clean and soothing office. The entire staff is so compassionate and professional. I would highly recommend Dr. Bryan Criswell and his staff to anyone considering plastic surgery.Dr. Bryan Criswell is very knowledgeable, caring, and easy to talk with. I am very happy with my results!

My whole experience with Criswell and Criswell was wonderful

My whole experience with Criswell and Criswell was wonderful. I was a little apprehensive about having my procedure done, but it has been a breeze from start to finish. The staff is wonderful and top notch. They answered my questions and really took their time with me. I know how wonderful Dr. Brian Criswell is and I know that he is an exceptional surgeon. I was not at all disappointed with this current procedure he did for me. It is something that I have wanted to do for a long, long time and I couldn’t be happier. It has been a wonderful experience. I highly recommend this practice for any of the surgical procedures that they do. I am even contemplation having another procedure done soon. Good luck with your procedure…you won’t be disappointed!

by Susan

I love my results

My experience with Dr. Criswell was amazing! He and his staff are professional, warm and friendly. From the consultation to my post- op appointments they have made this process as smooth and comfortable as possible. My procedure was a complete success and I am truly thankful for their help throughout my healing period. I love my results and I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

by Tenisha

Kara Criswell is phenomenal

After many years of dreaming about having a tummy tuck I made an appointment with Kara Criswell to discuss if my vision was even possible. She was very warm and made me very comfortable. After meeting with her I was able to see photos of other patients with the same problem. I made the decision to move forward with the surgery and am so happy that I did. I have to say that Kara Criswell is phenomenal. I am now almost four months post op and am so thrilled with my results so far. I wore a bikini for the first time in 20+ years!! I would absolutely recommend her to anyone (and have). Her staff is awesome and very attentive to the patients needs. If you are looking for a plastic surgeon then please take the time to meet with Kara Criswell and discuss your vision.

by Melissa

The staff, nurses and surgeons are without question THE BEST!

Due to significant weight loss, endless exercise and a C-section I decided to research various surgeons for a tummy tuck and thigh lift. From the moment I walked into the office of Criswell and Criswell for my first consult I felt a sense of ease. Seeing their support of Susan G Komen touched my heart for personal reasons, so I was anxious to meet Kara. She is professional and warming. She didn’t rush me out of her office, listened tentatively to my every need, made recommendations, took pictures, showed me pictures of different surgeries and was just as excited as I was. When we met she greeted me with a smile and a hand shake and when I left we exchanged hugs. I knew I found the perfect surgeon! Day of surgery was a bit overwhelming, with many emotions. The nurses made me so comfortable and at that point I was ready for surgery. I was excited to see Kara again, this time at my 6 week post op. I am elated with the results, beyond what words can explain. My scars are minimal and I know Kara is just as happy as I am. I cried a lot and did not feel foolish one little bit. You changed my life Kara and I have never been happier or felt better. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! If you are considering cosmetic surgery, trust when I say your search is over. The staff, nurses and surgeons are without question THE BEST! PS. I bought my first bikini at the age of 50, crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!

by Lisa

Thank you so much for giving me the self confidence boost

Dr. Bryan Criswell and his staff were amazing. I went in for the initial consult and immediately felt welcome and comfortable. I had the best experience! They made me feel comfortable with my decision and I did not feel like “just another patient”. I am four weeks post op and any question that I have Dr. Criswell takes his time to answer them no matter how absurd they may seem. My incisions are very clean and in some places it does not look like there was anything even done! I am very satisfied with my results and will come back for anything else that I need done! Thank you so much for giving me the self confidence boost that I needed! It has truly changed my life :)

by Adrienne

I see my body with pride and joy!

The original surgeon who performed my first cosmetic surgery had retired, leaving me with high hopes of finding another skilled surgeon. I was recommended a few but didn’t feel the special warm in care and reception like I did after meeting Dr. Kara Criswell. Her ability to listen, understand and carefully explain every detail absolutely convinced me that I would receive the results I was looking for. To my surprise on my pre-op I received a personalized packaged I faithfully believe did wonders for my healing/bruising. Dr. Kara has an amazing way of showing her expertise in choosing what is right for each individual. The care I received from Dr. Kara, and the personalized attention her staff offers is outstanding. My recovery and my results have surpassed my expectations. I am without a doubt totally convinced Dr. Kara is a “Highly Gifted” surgeon who has re-invented the wheel in cosmetic surgery. I indeed have an everlasting smile when I see my body with pride and joy!

Dr. Bryan Criswell & all of his staff are the best!

Dr. Bryan Criswell & all of his staff are the best! He made sure I was 100% informed on my options and the results. I never waited more than 10 minutes in the lobby, and they all do their best to make you feel comfortable. My incisions are very clean cut and the results are better than I imagined. Dr. Criswell and staff genuinely care about you individually and never make you feel rushed or unimportant. He was patient and answered all of my questions and really listened to what I wanted. If I ever need anything else done I will definitely be coming here!

by Corinne

She was incredible as were the results

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.

by KT9812

I am thrilled with my results

I was referred to Dr. Criswell by a friend that had breast reconstructive surgery several years ago and had excellent results. After my initial consultation I knew this was the place for me. Not only is Dr. Criswell an excellent surgeon and my results were amazing, but the entire office staff is top notch. The nurses are very responsive if you call with a question or concern and it was very comforting to know that someone was always there for me. I am thrilled with my results and I can’t say enough praise for Criswell and Criswell.

by Kelly

So happy with my results

So happy with my result so far. Looking forward to final result to come. Wore a bikini for the first time in 20+ years. Dr. Kara Criswell in Charlotte NC is truly a phenomenal surgeon.

I chose this physician after doing extensive research online on doctors in my area. I then made appointments with her and was impressed with her professionalism. Had plenty of before and after photos of similar cases to share with me.

by Melissa

I would 100% recommend her to anyone wanting to get the procedure done

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.

by clt1986

He and his staff are all outstanding

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.

Very capable of delivering beautilful results

On February 29, 2012 Dr. Kara Criswell performed a face lift on me. I am completely happy with the results and with the experience. I wanted to look like myself and not look stretched. We talked about all of this and I have exactly the results I wanted. I look younger, look just like myself and yet there is not stretched look. I recently spent time with old girlfriends and they did not know I had the “procedure” they just thought that I looked really, really good! Working with Dr. Criswell was such a positive experience. She really listens to her patients. I was anxious about the procedure and went to her with lots of questions. She did not mind my questions and I discovered the confidence she posesses about her abilities. Not all doctors are gracious about patients asking questions, most especially about their experience. Later when I told her that I had decided to go with her, she took my right hand in both of her very strong hands, looked me directly in the eyes and said, “Kathleen, you are going to look like yourself and you will look natural.” What a comfort those words were to me and, of course, she delivered those results. I had interviewed five other plastic surgeons in this area then chose Dr. Criswell and am very happy that I went with her. She truly understands what a woman wants and is so very capable of delivering beautilful results.

Absolutely the best experience I could have ever imagined

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.

Great experience

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.

by bmiller4404

Very pleased with my breast implants

I love my PS. He is a very kind man and he made sure that we had covered everything. I would definitely recommend him to anybody. Very pleased with breast implants

I can’t say enough praise for Criswell and Criswell

My friend had breast reconstructive surgery performed by Dr Criswell several years ago and had excellent results. I am very glad I chose Dr. Criswell for my surgery. Not only is he an excellent surgeon but the entire office staff is top notch. The nurses are very responsive if you call with a question ( which i did a lot!) and will see you in the office you have any questions whatsoever. I felt like someone was always there for me and this helped with my recovery process tremendously. I can’t say enough praise for Criswell and Criswell.

Amazing Job!

Becoming a mother was the most wonderful and life changing event of my life. Unfortunately it also dramatically changed my body. Dr. Criswell and his staff were kind and compassionate during my consultation. They listened to my needs and spent the time with me that I needed to make a decision about having my surgery. There are no words to express how pleased I am with my post-surgical results. I feel beautiful and look natural. I would highly recommend Dr. Criswell and his staff to anyone considering cosmetic surgery. Amazing Job!

by vamcgann

I am so happy with the decision I made

Dr. Criswell and his staff were Awesome! Definetly recommend! Being a former patient of Dr. Peter Tucker and learning that he had retired I began doing a lot of research on area Doctors. Once I learned that Dr. Criswell was taking care of Dr. Tuckers former patients I was excited to meet Dr. Criswell and found that not only did he make me feel comfortable and confident that he would do an excellent job but that some of Dr. Tuckers former employees were now working for Dr. Criswell. It was such a relief to see familiar faces and it also made my decision to have Dr. Criswell do my precedure an easier one. I have no complaints. Not only was Dr. Criswell professional and spent a lot of time answering my questions and concerns, but his staff is so sweet and caring and courteous. I am so happy with the decision I made to use Dr. Criswell.
