I had a mommy makeover with Dr. Bruneteau in May. It was the absolute worst experience. I was at a point of desperation with my weight and body and 100% regret making the rash decision to go through with this surgery without vetting out my options, including the surgeon. My stomach looks even worst than it did before. It's the same size, but now has lumps and flab that it never had before. Plus, the scar looks like he may as well have cut me in half. The breast lift is another regret. I chose not to get implants, so opted for the lift and asked that the size of my breasts be reduced. They were not reduced at all and the "key hole" scars it left are unsightly. I am so disappointed in myself for making this decision and with the doctor for doing such a horrible job with my body. I spent a week in the hospital after the surgery. First, because I was having difficulty coming out of the anesthesia, then a few days later because I came down with an infection. I was supposed to return to the doctor a couple of months after the surgery and chose not to. I have nothing good or positive to say about this experience. Even if the doctor offered to "fix" my issues, I wouldn't. I would never let him near me again. Worst decision of my life. Think very carefully before going through with this MAJOR surgery. Though they say you can go back to work in a couple of weeks, trust me, you won't feel up to it. It took me months to fully recover and now I have to live with a body that looks far worse than it did to begin with.
Mommy makeover with Dr Bruneteau has changed my life. I look great and feel great. MY husband loves my result and are relationship is better then ever. Dr Bruneteau was caring and knowledgable. His staff was wonderful I would strongly recommend this practice.
This physician performed a breast reconstruction surgery following a double mastectomy. The results were unacceptable and I had to have the surgery revised by a different plastic surgeon. Surgery with Dr. Bruneteau resulted in uneven breast size with a lot of excess skin. Unfortunately, when you are dealing with breast cancer, this type of setback can be emotionally devastating. Dr. Bruneteau also allowed his Physician Assistants to do most of the actual preparation work leading up to the surgery. Barely saw him until the day of surgery. No matter which plastic surgeon you use, always request to see before and after pictures of the surgery that you are requesting to have done. Would NOT recommend Dr. Bruneteau.
I have been a patient of Dr. Bruneteau's since 2007. I have had two cosmetic surgeries and multiple visits for skin care and maintenance. I have only good things to say about the staff, the nurses and Dr. Bruneteau. I have always received the very best of care and felt my needs as a patient were always the priority. Scheduling appointments has always been easy and the staff is understanding of my schedule and has always tried to accomodate me. I was impressed that I could come in for a consult in the evening after work and not have to make it fit into my work day. I have referred my friends and even family members to Dr. Bruneteau because I have been so pleased with my results.
Dr. Bruneteau was absolutely outstanding; as was all staff involved in the operation and the follow-up nurses and PA. The young women at the desk could be a little less plastic and act more warm and inviting to patients - they do not give the best impression of how great the rest of the staff and the doctor really is.
I had an INCREDIBLE experience overall at ASI! It was a very private and intimate experience from day 1. All the receptionists and nurses always knew who I was when I called in or came in for an appointment and were so hospitable to me. I had liposuction of my abdomen and thighs last winter and was 24 at the time so it was a very scary surgery to go through but I never once was worried at ASI because of how comforting and HONEST they were with me throughout the whole experience. Dr. Bruneteau performed my liposuction surgery and I could not ask for a better experience with a surgeon. He invested a lot of time and feedback in ensuring that I felt comfortable with going through this procedure and that all my questoins were answered. About 9 months have passed and I cannot explain how happy I am with my results and how much more confident I am with my body. Thank you ASI for a wonderful experience!!!
The staff is not nice, if fact I would say they were rude. Dr. Bruneteau himself does not have a good bedside manner. He said a few off putting comments to me but he does do a good job when it comes to face surgery. I will be researching a few other doctors before coming back to him for any other procedure.
Dr. Bruneteau is excellent and he is a very friendly guy. I had to have surgery on my forehead and the scar is invisible! I understand that he also does amazing work with children.
