"After many consults around town, I was referred to Dr. Sessions. I knew it was the right place for me when I arrived. I love his staff and Dr. Sessions is a professional and caring doctor. I am completely happy with my procedure and I have referred him many times."



"I had my breast implant surgery done by Dr. Sessions on a recommendation. I am so happy I listened. The very first time I walked in the door, I knew this was the doctor for me. He was friendly, candid and forthright. His staff, especially Cynthia, made me feel at home and at ease. My operation was in March and every follow appointment up has been fantastic. By the way, they look FABULOUS!! I and my husband couldn't be more pleased. I highly, highly recommend Dr. Sessions, so much that my husband and mother will be getting a procedure done with him very soon. Picking your plastic surgeon is a big decision. If you have any questions about him, ask the staff to forward your information to Diana or Sandy. They will know who we are and we would love to answer any questions!"



"I had slits in my earlobes from wearing too heavy of earrings and also from wearing my earrings too tight when I was little. When I was in high school I decided to stretch my ears a little and those made the slits even worse. Since taking the gauges out I haven't been able to wear regular stud earrings and I was really self conscious about my ears when people would ask me what happened to them. I finally decided to get them fixed. After talking with a few other offices I decided I wanted to get my ears stitched here and I couldn't be happier with my choice. I just got my stitches out and my ears look perfect!! I am so happy! I also have to add that every single person I talked to in the office was great. The lady I had my consultation with, the nurse, the doctor, and the receptionist were all professional, kind and funny. Would definitely come here again if I wanted to get more work done."



"I have been going to Dr Sessions for 20 years. Had a breast augmentation done first. I did have some complications with my surgery.. I had a capsule in my right breast. I had 5 surgeries to try and correct the problem .. My right breast would get hard as a rock and hurt. After 2 years of this nightmare and multiple surgeries he suggested we just completely remove the right breast so it could completely heal.  I went 5 months with only one implant and would place a implant on in inside if my right bra so it would appear they were the same size. I was a ddd on one side and a b on the other ... After one final surgery my body didn't reject it completely. I had a little capsule but it was livable.  About 8 years later I started getting Botox from him. I then went back  because it was time to replace my breast it had been about 15 years. As always he's as nice as can be. I asked him about a tummy tuck he gave me great advice and 2 weeks later I looked like a new person  I had beautiful smaller breast no capsule this time. (I wanted them smaller) and a beautiful tummy. Now let me say I have seen a lot of tummy tucks and it's been about 8 years since my surgery. But I never have seen one that looks as natural and beautiful as mine.  I also sent 2 co workers to him last year one got a tummy tuck and both got their Brest done.. They loved him. I will be going in the next few months for my eyes..  Thanks you for being awesome Dr Sessions and your entire wonderful staff."
