Welcome to Lexington Plastic Surgery and our family!
What our patients are saying…
Had concerns with my sagging skin under neck area-lower eyelids-shallow face. The before/after image program that dr. Gerstle used, sealed the deal in going with my procedure.
Dr. Gerstle and his nurse “susan” made my procedure so comfortable for me! Helped me meet transportation concerns, met me in the office after hours…The list truly does go on and on. These are things that I think the medical field has got away from. Thanks dr. Gerstle for putting the patient first. Big thumbs up!!! – 50 year old male. Lexington, KY
I saw Dr. Gerstle at Lexington Plastic Surgery and am so happy that I did. He gave me some options about what he thought would look good and asked for my opinion and we hashed out a plan.
So happy I did this for myself. Dr. Gerstle did such a nice job. Next year I’m going back for a tummy tuck & telling all of my friends they need to do the same. Oh, and he always gives you his cell phone # and email so you can always ask him questions! How awesome is that?! – So So So Happy I Did This for Myself! – Lexington, KY
I have had nothing but a positive experience with Dr. Gerstle and the office staff. His demeanor and bed-side manor is positive, thorough, attentive, flexible, and personal.
When I had my consultation with Dr. Gerstle for facial asymmetry due to my neurofibromatosis I was so pleased with how it went, for the first time I felt confident that the results I had always wanted could be achieved. I was overjoyed with the results after my surgery and will continue to see him for anything I need in the future. – 29 Years Old with Facial Asymmetry
After finding Dr. Gerstle, I have to admit that I was a little skeptical because he was so new but after I met him and his staff for the first time, I knew that I was in the right hands. Not only is he very intelligent and dedicated to his practice, but he has a sincere appreciation for his patients. He made me feel welcomed and confident that I would receive the results I was looking for. He took a genuine interest in what I wanted and I am very pleased with the results so far. He’s not done with me yet though so I know more fantastic results are to come. – 25 Year Old Lipo Patient – Lexington, KY
