Ratings for Dr. Richard H. Fryer
I totally lucked out with Dr. Fryer. He happened to be doing shifts in the ER when I went in. I prob would have opted to not have the emergency surgery if it wasn’t for him. He spent so much time reviewing my case and was genuinely concerned for my recovery. I came out of a facial reconstruction with zero scars, and no way of even knowing. This man is a perfectionist and it shows. Thank you so so much, Dr. Fryer.
After extensive research I decided to use Dr. Fryer as my plastic surgeon. Being from out of state, I was initially worried about traveling for a surgery. Once we arrived for our first consultation all my worries disappeared. The entire process was very easy and stress free. All my questions were answered and I felt comfortable and cared for the entire time. I had a breast enlargement surgery and I could not be happier with the results. The recovery was very easy and I experienced minimal downtime. I am sincerely convinced that this was due to the precision and excellent care of Dr. Fryer and the surgical team. I will be recommending Dr. Fryer and his team to any who ask!
The entire time I was at Premier Plast Surgery Center I felt welcomed and cared for. All of the staff from the front desk receptionist to Dr. Fryer himself were professional, caring, extremely knowledgeable and helpful. This was my first surgery and first experience with plastic surgery in general. I met the anesthesiologist and nurse in the surgery room and I didn't feel nervous at all. They were so sweet and made me feel right at home. I didn't feel nervous at all! That afternoon after the surgery Dr. Fryer called and made sure I was doing okay. He put a great deal of effort into making sure I was feeling good which is very important to me. I am extremely happy with the results of the surgery and I would recomment Dr. Fryer to all my friends and family.
I had a breast lift and augmentation, along with a hernia repair done by doctor Fryer, and I can only say good things about his office and the work he does. When I went in for my consultation and he gave me so much information that I walked out of that office feeling fully educated and completely confident about the surgery and different options I had. I decided to go with Dr. Fryer after talking to a few friends that have gone through him and reading all his reviews and I cannot tell you how happy I am that I chose him. The entire process was such an awesome experience from his office to him personally. I went in the day of surgery feeling very nervous about waking up and being in a lot of pain. However, I woke up a few hours later and really it was no where near as painful as I thought it was going to be. I was up walking around a few hours after surgery with minimal pain and only a bit of "tightness" in my chest, the procedure was not painful at all in my experience, it was completely tolerable, and I was off pain medications within just a few days! As far as my hernia repair I was advised by a hernia specialist that I would be in bed in a lot of pain for the first 7-11 days and that I wouldn't be leaving the bed. That wasn't the case thanks to Doctor Fryer. My tummy was obviously sore but by day 3 or 4 I barely even noticed any pain or uncomfortableness. I have multiple friends that have had breast augmentations and they all told me it was extremely painful for them and I experienced minimal pain. I am 3 weeks post op and I feel AMAZING! The tightness has pretty much gone away, I have almost all my range of motion back, my scars are barely noticeable and they look incredible. I am so happy I went to him. I cannot recommend him enough!
Dr. Fryer was very personable and professional. Everyone else that I met was also very friendly and professional, both the office personnel and the medical staff. Everyone that I encountered was a joy to work with. I traveled from out of town for the surgery and they were very accommodating. Dr. Fryer was very realistic and upfront in a very positive way. He thoroughly explained his reasoning for his decisions and I felt completely confident in his plan. The results are beautiful. It’s only been a week but I already look better than I could have imagined, thanks to his technique, attention to detail and vast knowledge. This had been a dream of mine for many years that Dr. Fryer and his staff helped bring to life.
Dr. Fryer recently removed my breast implants, and it is the best medical investment I have ever made. I had been experiencing pain and discomfort for years, and finally found a doctor who had the ability and wisdom to remove them for me. Dr. Fryer is wise, compassionate, and a perfectionist. I feel like I have had two sandbags removed from my chest! Minimal pain and discomfort, and I look fabulous. Highly recommend the procedure - especially with Dr. Fryer - to anyone contemplating this procedure. Worth ever penny spent.
Since I was a teenager, I wanted to be able to fill out swimsuits and bras nicely, and am so glad I finally decided to take the plunge and get a breast augmentation. I wanted to still look modest, and being 12 days post op, I am happy with my results. After hearing about the Natrelle Inspira SRF silicone implants, I was excited by the idea of getting more volume up top, having a natural look & feel, and with minimal rippling because of the optimal gel fill. My chest/breast width was measured at only 8.5cm (probably one of the smallest in existence), so when choosing an implant size, I was nervous that the selection of implants that I could choose from would be very small. I decided to go with the smallest size that this implant came in, which is 180cc, diameter 9.5cm, and projection of 4cm. With my breast width measurement of 8.5cm, the implant's diameter of 9.5cm is the largest that Dr. Fryer recommended in order to achieve a natural-looking outcome and good result. Even though I was concerned that this implant might look wide on my petite figure, I felt it was the best choice given what was available and what I was looking for. Pre-op size: 32AA or 30A barely Implant: Natrelle silicone Inspira SRF 180cc Incision: Under the muscle Post op size: Around 32B Day 1 post op: Surgery was in the morning. Not much pain, only heavy, tight, sore feeling in the chest. Took 1 percocet pain reliever pill in the afternoon and 1 at night and 600mg ibuprofen 2 times that day. I did not take any naps and had enough energy to walk around my apartment complex for about 15 minutes to get some fresh air. I experienced swelling in the chest and upper abdomen, and felt really bloated. As a side/stomach sleeper, the hardest part was sleeping on my back at an angle with tape placed under my breasts, and a surgical bra on at all times. Day 2-3 post op: Saw the doctor for my post-op and everything was OK and breasts look symmetrical. Still heavy feeling in the chest, took 1 pain reliever pill during the day, and 600mg ibuprofen 3 times a day. Still really swollen and bloated. Day 4 post op: Still a lot of tightness in the chest, did not take any more pain reliever pills, only ibuprofen 3 times a day for the rest of the first week. 1 week post op: Saw the doctor for my 1-week post op, and tape was removed! Recovery is going well, only a little swelling and tightness in the chest. Cleared to wear any bra that's comfortable, but still advised to sleep on back until end of week 3. Started breast massages 3 times a day with slight discomfort, and started scar gel application twice daily. Went to the gym for the first time in a week, and walked on the treadmill for a half hour, then stationary bike for half hour, and a little abductor and adductor machines. Felt good to start doing some exercising again. At 1.5 weeks post op now, I'm really looking forward to my breasts dropping more and becoming softer. I don't think there's anymore swelling or bloating. I tried on some of my old 32A bras which had some space and gaping before, and some of them still fit, but my breasts look really full in them now. Probably best to start buying some new bras because I think I'm a 32B now. Thrilled for the upcoming summer and to try on bikinis soon! Dr. Fryer was the only plastic surgeon I had a consultation with before the procedure, but I felt completely comfortable and confident with him (especially from reading all the positive reviews online). My biggest worry for the procedure were that the implants would look fake, and not fit my really petite frame. Dr. Fryer really listened to concerns, and shared his extensive experience and in-depth knowledge on implants for thin/petite/small figures like mine, and that made me feel that I was in the right hands.
Just wanted to reinflate what I lost through nursing. Wanted to stay within previous cup size. Dr Fryer was great at helping me understand what the procedure would entail, other doc said I needed a lift as well. Dr Fryer said I didn't and showed me where the nipple placement would be and said if I wanted it later he would go on again and just charge the cost for the procedure, nor any other fees. He also noticed by the angle of my ribcage that I would need to wear a particular bra for 3 months to keep the placement. He's discovered that just simply warring a bra day and night for 3 months severely decreases the need for reoperation in bodies like mine. Overall very thorough. My only regret was not asking more qustions about cup size to the nurses afterword. I wish I'd asked them tv's very smallest size insert they had and stated there. Or with my measurements what amount of ccs would get me to a c cup, etc. I'm really glad I brought a baggy shirt to try on so I could see how top heavy I'd look in baggy clothes. I was so scared of going too big and think I did still go a little bigger than I wanted because I thought the size I got was the lowest one they had. But I didn't ask what their lowest size was. So, my fault. All in all, super nap with tv's shape, feel, procedure was a lot less painful than anticipated and recovery was super quick.
I waited to write this review until I was three months in. That way, I could know exactly how well I recovered. My motivation to have this procedure was purely for my own self confidence. I didn't want it to be a noticeable change to anyone (except maybe my husband). After nursing my two babies, my breast tissue was practically gone. What remained was loose and unattractive (to me). I went to consultations with several plastic surgeons, some charging $50 for a consultation. I ended up going to Dr. Fryer for many reasons. The most important ones being that he listened to what I wanted, and gave me realistic expectations. I didn't feel like I was in a sales pitch and didn't feel pressured to go bigger than I wanted. I was hoping for a Large B/Small C cup and that's EXACTLY what I got. Recovery the first 6-8 weeks was rough (since I have two young kids), but it wasn't worse than Dr Fryer prepared me for. My confidence has greatly improved now that I feel feminine again. If I could to do anything differently, I wouldn't. I can't recommend Dr. Fryer and his staff enough.
I have always been self-conscious of being very flat-chested. Nursing 5 babies didn't help either! I was curious about breast augmentation and if it would be right for me, but it was also a scary idea! I didn't think I was "the type" to get plastic surgery. I didn't want a breast augmentation that would be blatantly obvious or that would scream "boob job!" I just wanted to look good and feel good about my chest. Enter Dr. Fryer. Dr. Fryer and his entire staff were incredible to work with. I felt zero pressure from them. I felt like Dr. Fryer's biggest concern was helping me get the outcome I wanted. He explained the procedure so clearly and took time to answer my many questions. I am honestly amazed at how comfortable I have felt throughout the entire process--the consultation, the pre-op, and now the post-op visits.I went to a different doctor before deciding on Dr. Fryer. I should have saved myself the trouble. I highly recommend Dr. Fryer. I couldn't be more pleased by my results. I have a very natural look--a look that fits my body frame and is exactly what I was hoping for. I couldn't be happier with my decision to go with Dr. Fryer.
