Dr. Gerstle exceeded my expectations from start to finish with my recent rhinoplasty. His staff was very accommodating during the entire process and has went above and beyond since my consultation. I would highly recommend his services to anyone considering having any type of procedure.

My wife has gone to Dr. Gerstle for a few different procedure/concerns and has always been taken care of with the highest quality care possible. Her latest procedure was a breast augmentation. She looked good before but wow her breasts look amazing now. He answered all of my health concerns and made us feel at ease. He made sure we understood the right size for her body frame was important. They look very natural too! From the first appointment through her surgery and post op appointments we have felt like family every time we walk through the door. Her first procedure had to do with a pressing medical infection concern in her arm that needed addressed right away and Dr. Gerstle took the situation very seriously and acted quickly. Through both procedures, you cannot tell she has any scars at all! We could not be more pleased by her results and would highly recommend anyone interested in addressing any concerns to give his office a call. Your experience with them will do the rest!

Dr. Gerstle and everyone in his office is wonderful. He done a scar correction from a poorly done surgery elsewhere. Before surgery he asked if there was a particular kind of music I listen to which he played to relax me during surgery. I thought that was very thoughtful. He done a remarkable job and I am well pleased!

I recently underwent plasma pen therapy for scars on my temple. Dr. Gerstle was very thorough, kind, and reassuring in describing the procedure. It only took a couple of minutes and was virtually painless. Now, I can barely notice where the scares were.

I recently had a tummy tuck and breast lift with augmentation. I needed a lot of work due to weight loss of 100lbs. Dr. Gerstle has been amazing and he has been there for me every step of the way before and after surgery. I am very pleased with my results. Office visits pre and post op are very quick. I’ve been taken straight back to a room each appointment. Not only is Dr. Gerstle great, but he also has a wonderful staff. He has addressed any question or concern I have had and made this a very pleasant experience. If you are hesitant, I encourage you to schedule a consult at Lexington Plastic Surgery. I seen 3 plastic surgeons before meeting with Dr. Gerstle and ended up scheduling my surgery with him the same day as my consult. I would recommend him for any plastic surgery needs!

I went to Dr. Gerstle's office for a consultation for labiaplasty and the surgery at the end of 2019. It is now early 2020. I'm healed up, and so satisfied with the experience and most importantly, the results. Dr. Gerstle and his staff are skilled, informed, kind, and comforting. His office provides a great atmosphere from waiting room to operating room. He is very down to earth and concisely walked me through the entire process. Don't hold back on any questions and take his advice. The labiaplasty surgery was a huge decision in my life. I was so nervous about it. I did it for comfort, not aesthetics. I emerged with both in the end. I am thankful for everything that Dr. Gerstle and his staff provided for me.

I am so impressed! Very highly recommended! Dr. Gerstle and his team at Lexington Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery are amazing! I live in Cincinnati, OH and am so happy Dr. Gerstle was recommended to me. Definitely worth the drive to Lexington, KY! I was suffering debilitating migraines and planned to get botox injections to combat the pain, nausea, vision disturbances and everything else that comes with a migraine. Dr. Gerstle discussed migraine surgery with me and explained everything about the procedure and shared success rates. It's also a much better deal, botox only last a few months but the procedure for migraines is a permanent solution.Now that I have had the procedure for migraines, I want to tell everyone how much better I feel. No more migraines!! Thank you! Thank you Dr. Gerstle! You are a life saver, I can now have my life back. Thank you for not only the migraine relief, but also for my eye lift, my lip enhancement and my smile line filler 😊 I am extremely happy with my experience at Lexington Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery! If you suffer from migraines, you really should get a consult.

I would 100% recommend Dr. Gerstle and his staff to anyone! Picking a plastic surgeon is overwhelming due to the large amount of them in Lexington! After thorough research I found Dr. Gerstle and called for a consultation for a breast augmentation. During my consultation Dr. Gerstle and his staff made me feel very comfortable. They were professional yet personable, which we all need a doctor with a good sense of humor. Dr. Gerstle made himself available to answer any of my questions or concerns throughout my breast argumentation. Dr. Gerstle did an AMAZING job with my breast augmentation, I love them, and not only that but they look natural which was important to me! I couldn’t of asked for a better experience. If you are looking to have anything done, Dr. Gerstle and his staff are the people to go to!During my consultation, Dr. Gerstle has noticed my boyfriend’s foot. My boyfriend had dropped a 45lb weight on his foot hours prior and Dr. Gerstle took the time to ultrasound his foot right then and there! Dr. Gerstle also instructed him on what to expect and how to assist with the pain and swelling.

My husband had been in pain for over a year after the end of his thumb was smashed off. We had been to several doctors and through pain management, with no success.Dr. Gerstle took care of the pain and reconstructed his thumb so he can use it.We are so happy we found him. We travel 4 hrs each way to see him. It is well worth the travel. He is an excellent surgeon and he makes you feel comfortable.

I didn't have a major procedure done, just a few vials of sclerotherapy treatment. It is too soon to tell how my end result will be, as I have to wait for my legs to heal up. I had several areas on my legs where spider veins were quite noticeable; I just wanted to improve the appearance of my 50-year-old legs. Dr. Gerstle and Amber couldn't have been any nicer. Both super friendly. We made small talk through the entire procedure. I would definitely return to this office in the future if I have more spider veins appear. I would definitely recommend Lexington Plastic Surgery to anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their legs due to spider veins!

I’m so impressed with Lexington Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Dr. Gerstle. The entire staff is professional and friendly, delivering superior medical care. Each step of my treatment was approached in a conservative manner. My results are beyond my expectations. Every one of my nervous questions, calls in with worries, and discussions about expectations were taken seriously, with compassion, and patience.When I visited several other physicians to consult about correcting my issue, I was dragged through hardcore marketing presentations. PowerPoints, add-on services, and very little face-time with the physician felt more like I was being pressured into a time-share than receiving medical advice. If all my questions had to go through the sales staff—I was left wondering who would deliver the bulk of my care. Thank goodness I found Dr. Gerstle. Amber, and the entire staff to truly take care of me.

Dr. Gerstle and his staff are exceptionally kind, professional, and welcoming. This was my first plastic surgery experience and I was very nervous prior to my initial consultation. When I arrived, they immediately made me feel comfortable and welcomed. During my consultation and actual day of surgery, Dr. Gerstle and his assistant Amber made me feel very informed/involved and I felt so confident and taken care of. I am now almost two weeks post op and they have followed up with me multiple times to make sure recovery has been going well, and I have had two follow up appointments. I couldn’t imagine having had a better experience and I am so so happy with the results. I highly recommend Dr. Gerstle.

I had trouble with keloids in my ears. I’ve had trouble with other doctors not wanting to do much with them. They kept growing until I saw Dr. Gerstle. He took them out completely and now my ears look great. Great service and an even greater doctor.

Dr. Gerstle and his team have been fantastic throughout my whole process! They truly provide a level of customer service that you usually don't experience in the medical community. Dr. Gerstle made himself available for emergency follow-ups if needed and he always answered calls about an issue or promptly called back. He also made calls to check on recovery following the procedure. Definitely a concierge level of medical service. I would highly recommend!

I had a GREAT experience with GREAT results from my procedure! I would 100% recommend Dr. Gerstle to anyone! Dr. Gerstle was the most personable doctor that I have ever known. He said to me, “I treat my patients the way I would want someone to treat my family”. His secretary, Amber and his assistant, Grenda were so welcoming and down to earth. Grenda made my procedure so much more enjoyable because she was by my side the whole time, making jokes, and getting me anything I needed. It would be a mistake to not chose Dr. Gerstle!

Dr. Gerstle is an outstanding doctor. I love the fact that he is a perfectionist and it shows in his work! I recently went to my NP for medication refills. I had not seen her since before my first treatment. (3 treatments, 1 month apart) Just a few minutes into the conversation she said, “Have you had something done...to your face I mean. You’ve done something. You look younger. Have you had under your eyes done or a face lift?” Then I remembered... ohhhhh yessss... I did ... micro-needling!! She said, “I knew you’d done something! Omg you look younger. It worked! Her comments were all the proof I needed!Amber in the office is pretty amazing, too! She is always so helpful and full of knowledge about any procedure.

I have met with different surgeons and have had one previous cosmetic surgery. For this time I very much appreciated the staff and Dr. Gerstle not just focusing on what I wanted done but they also kept in mind the concerns around my child. Dr. Gerstle also had no issue pausing and taking a step back if I seemed hesitant in any way. While I am still healing, I could not be happier.

What is Cosmetic Plastic Surgery?

Cosmetic plastic surgery is designed to alter certain personal features or characteristics you’d like to see enhanced. For many of our Lexington Plastic Surgery clients, it can result in redesigning their body’s contour and shape, smoothing wrinkles, or eliminating balding areas. There are dozens of cosmetic surgery procedures that men and women can choose from to sculpt an image which allows them feel more confident and comfortable with their self image. Despite health insurance companies typically not covering the cost of cosmetic surgery procedures, the amount of men and women opting to have cosmetic plastic surgery continues to rise. The top cosmetic plastic surgeries are breast augmentation, liposuction, nose reshaping, eyelid surgery, tummy tuck, and facelift. If you’re looking for trusted Lexington surgeons, Dr. Theo Gerstle and his staff will make you feel right at come.

What is Reconstructive Plastic Surgery?

Reconstructive plastic surgery is used to correct facial and body abnormalities resulting from birth defects, injury, disease, or aging. Typically, the focus of reconstructive plastic surgery is to drastically help body function. However, reconstructive plastic surgery is also done to create a more normal appearance and improve self-esteem (this may also be called cosmetic surgery). Abnormal structures of the body may result from:

  • Injury
  • Infection
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Birth defects
  • Disease
  • Tumors

Our Lexington plastic surgeons focus on clearly identifying your needs and walking you through your procedure clearly.

Plastic Surgery Benefits

Better Self-Confidence

When you look awesome, you feel awesome. Improvements to how you look and feel naturally translate to increased self-confidence for many patients, which results in a greater desire and drive to try new things or feel more comfortable in social situations. Patients may also feel more comfortable wearing specific types of clothing or take part in activities they avoided before having plastic surgery, due to feeling uncomfortable with their appearance before. Our plastic surgeons are here to help you find the confidence you deserve.

Better Physical Health

Some plastic surgery procedures can improve your physical well beings along with your looks. For instance, rhinoplasty or nose reshaping surgery may improve breathing while at the same time can lift the the aesthetics of the nose. Breast reduction surgery improves the body shape, however, it can also relieve physical discomfort such as neck and back pain and skin irritation from abnormally large breasts.

Better Mental Health

Mental health benefits can be achieved from plastic surgery along with aesthetics and physical health improvements. Some patients see a reduction in social anxiety after their Lexington plastic surgery procedure, as a result of increased feelings of self-confidence their new look inspires. It is not abnormal to feel more control over your life, become more enthusiastic in trying new challenges, or take charge of your live in ways you could not before. Our Lexington plastic surgeons understand that above all physical needs, a patient’s mental health is the most important.

More Opportunities

Many studies mention that patients who are more attractive often enjoy more professional and personal opportunities. A 2017 study published in Economics Today discovered that better looking real estate agents were able to sell properties at a higher price than agents that were not thought of as attractive. More studies have shown that attractive people often make higher salaries and are awarded larger promotions more often. Our Lexington plastic surgeons will help you transform your body and mind so that you can access more opportunities that are within your reach.

Keep The Weight Off

Patients seeking body contouring, such as liposuction or a tummy tuck, often find it is less difficult to keep the weight off after their plastic surgery. The positive results of the procedure often motivates the patient to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen to keep their weight under control. A healthy weight may also lead to a healthier system and reduced chance for various types of diseases.

There are many reasons why our Lexington Plastic Surgery patients consider plastic surgery today. After a successful operation or consultation, you can also discover benefits from your surgery which you never realized were possible.
