15/05/13 5 5 5 5 I went to Dr. Bauer on a referral from a friend and I could not be more pleased with the results. The staff is courteous, punctual and knowledgeable. Dr. Bauer took his time with me during my consultation, listened and answered all of my questions. I would highly recommend The Swan Center if you are interested in cosmetic surgery.  Respond

02/02/13 5 4 5 5 I heard about Dr. Bauer from a few friends who had used him for their own breast augmentation. I was very hesitant as this is not an inexpensive procedure plus the addition worry of health risks afterwords.I was put at ease from the moment I walked into the office and met his staff.The waiting rooms are so warm and inviting it almost makes it seem as though it is not real or that surely it is a false image of the work; this is not true at all.He was wonderful from the consultation all the way through my surgery and after! His nurses are amazing and have answered numerous phone calls and emails with silly questions and concerns I may have had.When I went into my surgery I was so nervous words cannot explain and it was unbelievable how at ease everyone made me feel.I cannot express how highly I think of this practice & Dr. Bauer,It was life changing which sounds very cliche but it was!I am six weeks out and I cannot thank them enough for making me love myself for the first time.

16/12/12 5 5 5 5 I have been very happy with the results of my breast augmentation. Dr Bauer and all the nursing staff were very helpful in the decision making process and made me feel very comfortable. They provided me with their professional opinions and advice, but put my own personal preferences first and foremost. I would definitely recommend Dr Bauer and The Swan Center for breast augmentation.

22/10/12 3 2 3 5 Well I see that the reviews that we looked at before hiring Dr. Joesph Bauer were removed. I guess a lot of other patients were dissatisfied. My wife's breast were perfect. The only problem was her right nipple area became very sensitive to touch, so based on a 97% assurance that he would be able to resolve the issue, we moved forward. With no insurance my wife worked hard to raise $6,500.00. The surgery left my wife so self conscious that her own husband doesn't even get to see her breasts. I will spare you with all the details, but I would highly recommend you not trusting Dr. Joesph Bauer with any surgery. You have a 50/50 chance of not getting what you thought you paid for. If you want to go under the knife you will have to dig back into your wallet. VERY IMPORTANT WARNING: After 10 years you will have to go through the surgery to replace the implants. The reason after 10 years they expire and may leak.  Respond

06/02/12 5 4 5 5 I am a mere 6 weeks out from surgery and already 100% happy about my choice in surgeon. I went on two different plastic surgeon consultations - both highly recommended by friends, and once I met with Dr. Bauer, my decision was made. Not only was the entire staff wonderful, Dr. Bauer's results spoke volumes. He knew his numbers in terms of complications (or lack thereof, really), revision surgeries, etc. and totally put my mind at ease. He is truly an artist and has perfected the art of breast augmentation, in my opinion. My incisions are unbelievable tiny already, but he said they will fade even more. I've seen other friend's results and their incisions are nearly twice as big--again, speaking volumes on behalf of Dr. Bauer's skill as a surgeon. Search no more, he is your guy!

09/10/08 4 2 4 3 The staff was very nice, but I was not very happy with my procedure. I got an infection/ blood around my implant and had to actually pay to have it fixed. The wait time was too long as well to see doctor.
