I am so happy with my experience at Lexington Plastic Surgery. So fortunate that I found Dr. Gerstle and his staff. They were all so nice and made me feel comfortable at even my first visit with him. I felt that I was in safe hands the entire experience. I would not hesitate to go see Dr. Gerstle and his great staff for anything else in the future.

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.
Leslie Whaley

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.
Kara Ferguson

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 is great! 2 years ago I got bit in the face by a dog and he made time to fix my lip. He did an awesome job and can barely tell there is a scar on my lip. Always going to be grateful for that.

Doctor Gerstle came highly recommended to me. His perfection to detail, and talent as a surgeon is exceptional.

Karen Hamilton
Karen H.
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!

Jeffrey Shafer

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!
Lauren Dean
Lauren D.
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.

I would Highly suggest Dr. Gerstle for all your plastic surgery needs. He is very professional, knowledgeable and caring. Your more than just a number in his office. He gets to know his patients on a personal level and meets your needs and works with what you want or are looking for. Personally his education and work speaks for itself. I would recommend him any day of the week over anyone in the Kentucky and surrounding areas. I am still a work in progress but i am highly pleased.
I have nothing but praises for this gifted surgeon. When he works with you, he is both empathetic and compassionate.I presented him with quite a task. My breast implants from years prior were both encapsulated. The right breast surrounded by scar tissue due to radiation after a lumpectomy. The left breast had started to droop.The results of his artistry and skill is that I have back a beautiful bustline that I am very proud of.In addition his staff is delightful. From the moment you enter his office, the experience is top notch.I highly recommend this surgeon and remain so grateful to both he and his staff.

Had a injury at work that happened from falling off a ladder that broke my nose and cut my lip. Had it stitched late from er that left it looking bad. Found Dr Gerstle and he said he would make it look better and he did what he said. Looks totally different after seeing him. Would highly recommend him to anyone and if I ever need something like this done again he will be my first call. Will highly recommend him to anyone that needs something done.

If you are looking for a Plastic Surgeon who has an eye for detail, actually listens to you and doesn't make you feel rushed during an appointment and has a track record of happy and satisfied patients, Dr. Gerstle is who you need to see! I saw Dr. Gerstle for an alopecia (fancy way of saying I am balding) consult and with his technology available at his office, he was able to show me what I would look like with hair on my head where I haven't seen it in years. Being able to see the end result of treatment is a huge bonus when being treated by Dr. Gerstle.

I had a bbl/fat transfer/mini tummy tuck with Dr Gerstle. I was very apprehensive and nervous because of getting work done once prior with a different Dr that turned out not so great but couldn’t be happier I made the right choice this time. Not only did he do an amazing job but a Drs bedside manner couldn’t have been better. It has been almost 3 yrs and I am still always getting asked who did this work... I will always recommend him to anyone for anything. It was an amazing experience to be treated like a real person throughout the entire process and not like a dollar sign. I can’t thank him and his staff enough.

If I sit here to tell you exactly how I feel about the doctor and his staff, I will be here for awhile and possibly write a book. Dr. Gerstle is the best doctor ever! He makes sure that you are okay at all times. He will even talk with you after hours if you need him. I feel like I’m a friend and not just another patient. I’ve had a horrible life threatening medical history in the past, but Dr. Gerstle has taken away all my insecurities with what he’s done so far. There’s still a few more steps for completion, but I’m confident enough to know that the outcome will be amazing. Let me also add that Amber, his office staff, is so sweet as well. Thank you guys for making this experience as smooth and comfortable as it can be. I have already recommended my friends and family to him. All my future imperfections will definitely be taken care of with Dr. Gerstle. I wouldn’t think of having it any other way. Love you guys. 😘❤️😘❤️

Dr.Gerstle and his staff are professional and friendly. Dr. Gerstle removed some pre cancerous lesions from my skin and after I inquired about fat grafting, he educated me about the process. After viewing enhanced photos of what the results should be, I had the fat grafting done by. Dr.Gerstle, as well as reconstruction of my left ear lobe. The results are LOVELY. Dr. Gerstle called me personally at home the day following surgery to see how I was doing. I have never had a doctor do that before. I am very pleased with Dr.Gerstle. I recommend him to my family and friends.

I've been seeing Dr. Gerstle and his staff over the past several months for some in-office procedures, as well as one surgical procedure, and other surgeries scheduled to follow. I couldn't be more pleased with the results I'm seeing! Also, the treatment I've recieved as a patient makes me feel like I'm the number one priority of the office whenever I am there. Dr. Gerstle is far more personable and thorough about communicating with me, than I've come to a expect from a highly skilled surgeon! I feel that he is passionate about his profession, and it shows! The results are AMAZING! I highly recommend Dr. Theo Gerstle and his very friendly, professional and accommodating staff for all your cosmetic surgery needs!

Dr. Gertsle performed my tummy tuck procedure and I am so happy! He is easy to talk to and gave me the high quality attention and level of care that I thought only famous people get. He checked on me often during my recovery and really cared about details during my healing process. I have had other doctors look at my stomach and they all are amazed at his work. It’s perfection. My results turned out way better than my friends who had same procedure by other providers. #harvard

I had a nice vertigo tumble and gashed my head open. Didn’t want to deal with an ER “ surgeon” Called Dr Theo and he and his staff waited for me and took care of it ASAP. I am so greatful for them. Steve and I both are more confident that my scar will heal nicely due to his attention to detail. 2nd emergency he has come to my family’s rescue. Gracie had smithereens for a nose and he rebuilt perfectly. She’s a scuba diver and hasn’t had one issue. Perfection !

Dr Gerstle was amazing I first saw him about 3 yrs ago to get botox but I also had a dry patch on my face it was growing. He took patch of right next to my nose about the size of a nickel had it biopsied for skin cancer. No cancer No scare either. I would recommend Dr. Gerstle not only for saving me a large scar but for his knowledge on Cranial Facial Birth Defects. Which was unbelievable because most physians do not have any education on. In 1989 my daughter Ran was born with FRONTAL NASUAL DYSPLASIA .CLEFT FACE . We lived in Maryland in 1990 back then and even today there are so so many doctor's her and I had to educate on her condition which is so hard reliving over her 20 surgeries. So you can just imagine that a doctor here in Kentucky know about immediately .Finally and he also gave us even more information he educated us .Thank God. Besides her Amazing doctors back east Dr. Carson and Dr Dufresne he has been the only doctor that understood what a hard journey Ran and and I have had.....To this day I can call him or Amber with help in new problems that Ran incurres. So like I said he's Amazing.

Dr. Gerstle is fantastic! He really explains the process and goes over options really well. His staff is very kind as well. I scheduled my appointment and needed to change the time. I called the day before my scheduled appointment to have it moved to my lunch hour and they were very flexible. When I arrived the office was very nicely decorated, clean, and comfortable. The staff was welcoming as soon as I walked in! When Dr. Gerstle sit down with me, he was very patient and informative about any procedures I had questions about. I will be a returning patient of his from now on!!

Dr. Gerstle and staff are amazing. I have been going to see him since he removed a cancerous spot above my lip 4 years ago (which you can't see at all). He has helped me with a breast reduction all the way to botox and chemicals peels. I wouldn't go anywhere else, he makes you feel comfortable and takes the time to explain everything you need to know about the procedure your interested in.

I am so delighted with the result from Dr. Theo Gerstle removal of a precancerous growth on my cheek. It was a sunken dark spot and now it is gone. My cheeks are the same now. This was an eyesore to me. I always turned my head for pictures. At the age of 72. Iwas concerned about the results and having plastic surgery but Dr. Gerstle’s explained everything very well and did a fine job. I thank him and his office staff for being so helpful.

Dr. Gerstle is truly an amazing doctor. From his education, bedside manner, expertise, and comfortable office. He made me feel right at home and saved my arm from not only the ugly scar but from preventing a frightening medical emergency. He acted fast on my situation from the moment I reached out to him and he took the time to contact me after his normal hours due to his genuine concern of my health. You don’t find that very often and I could not think of going to anything else for my wellness and my reconstructive needs. I highly recommend him and his team to everyone in need. His team represents him well and invites you in as family. I personally work in a specialized dental office who takes patient care as first priority and find my standards to be higher than most, he exceeds all areas when it comes from the moment you call his office to every follow up visit. Thanks for all you do & I look forward to seeing you in a few months.

I just had the following procedures done by Dr. Gerstle, a face & neck lift with fat transfer and also a slight chin reduction. His staff is wonderful, CJ and Amber are easy to get to know and are kind and willing to help you in anyway they can. Dr. Gerstle is there to take good care of you and it doesn't matter if it's after hours or not. I felt like he put 100% effort in getting me the results that I wanted. I LOVE the results. He is an amazing surgeon as I think he took at least 15 years off of my appearance. He is the only plastic surgeon I will ever go to again.
Dr. Gerstle's artistic approach performing fat transfer to my face was phenomenal. It took 8 years off & looks so natural. He listened to all my concerns and took them into consideration while I was under his care. His approachable and kind personality made my experience enjoyable. I would highly recommend him to others considering fat transfer.

I have had several procedures performed by Dr Gerstle and each time it has been an excellent experience and result. I have never had any doctor spend more time with me to explain things and be certain that I was comfortable with the planned treatment. He and his team communicated with me as much and as often as I needed before and after my procedures. An excellent experience!

One year ago today, Dr. Gerstle performed surgery on me. He was the only one that could target the problem, and was able to immediately give me relief that I hadnt had in months. He is an amazing doctor, suregeon and i would go back to him without any hestitation and would refer him to any family and friends, which I have.

I reached out to Dr. Gerstle for a breast augmentation complicated by tuberous breast constriction. I wasn't an easy case for him yet he did a phenomenal job. His attention to detail and follow up care are remarkable. My surgery was nine months ago so I have had ample experience communicating with both him and his staff. All are friendly, professional, and prompt. I wouldn't hesitate to go back to Dr. Gerstle for any future needs and have recommended him to a few friends for various reasons. Schedule your consultation today!

This man did an amazing job on me. I had previously had surgery from another plastic surgeon and he TRULY BOTCHED my chest up. Not only did dr gerstle fix my chest he also made me feel better about myself. I was truly depressed when I seen dr gerstle because of what the other surgeon had done to me. So if anyone needs plastic surgery please go see him and let him do the surgery.

Dr. Gerstle and his staff are all amazing, genuine people to work with and the most respectful staff I've ever personally dealt with. The most exciting time of my weeks post op are my follow up appointments because they treat every patient like family. I've heard of other top surgeons just chopping and leaving, but Gerstle is true to his word and even offers to fix anything that may have gone wrong so you're getting what you're paying for. As a trans guy, I can say I wouldn't go to any other surgeon nearby. Cheap in price, amazing results, and so dedicated to you that he even replies out of business hours (which almost no one ever does, not even general family doctors.) What more could you ask for?

Dr. Gerstle has done all of my surgical tattoo removals. He is an amazing doctor filled with passion and care for his patients. He will answer any questions or concerns you may have and give you comfort. Even though I had pulled my stitches multiple times Dr. Gerstle still takes time to stitch me back up and never blames the patient. I have recommended multiple friends to his practice and will continue to do so. Staff is amazing always. No matter what your surgery recommend Dr. Gerstle.

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.
