I don’t think you could find a more professional kind group/staff – they are always smiling friendly, they answered me my questions, were very respectful of my expectations. Dr Sturm O’Brien is simply awesome! I will return again to “spruce up” my face as I age, knowing she will provide the best technology for my needs at a fair price.

I highly recommend Ultherapy. I’ve had other treatments such as fraxel and thermage and feel that Ultherapy offers more dramatic results. The staff at Facial Plastic Surgery associates have always been friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.

Very professional! All the staff have been so helpful and I’m liking the results so far. I’m still swollen, but I’m positive my final results are going to be even better. Quality was awesome, very organized, very informative and I had all the info on how to take care of my nose. I always looked forward to these visits and if there’s any other procedure I need to get done and it’s within their specialty I’ll be more than happy to go to this practice to do them.

48 year old female, Rhinoplasty

For many years, I had considered having my nose reshaped, but very nervous about the procedure.  After several consultations (2) with/@ Dr. Kridel’s office, the second with Dr. Sturm I made the decision to go through with the procedure.  Dr. Sturm and her awesome staff explained the entire process, which made me very comfortable, the surgery center was exceptionally great as well.  After the procedure in the beginning I was a bit worried of the results (under stress).  Once the bandages came off I was so relieved and couldn’t be happier with my results which has given me more confidence than ever.

34 year old female, Rhinoplasty, reduction of nasal bone fracture

I broke my nose and Dr. Sturm was wonderful with her bedside manner and really took the time to understand my needs and desires I wanted to achieve with the surgery.  Being a busy mom of 3 the staff was very accommodating with my scheduling and patience of having 3 kids in their office.  I also loved all of the educational material they provide you with.  It really helped me to understand every piece of the process.  After going to other consults, I felt the level of professionalism and the passion for what she does was my ultimate deciding factor and I couldn’t be happier with my choice.

65 year old female, Fraxel, Sculptra, Ultherapy

It is always a pleasure to be treated by Dr. Sturm and FPSA staff.  They are enthusiastic, yet realistic, about treatments.  My results have been at least as good, if not more so than expected.

One of the nicest things is that Dr. Sturm and staff make every effort to assure the emotional and physical comfort of patients for any procedure.

24 year old female, Rhinoplasty, septoplasty and tonsillectomy

Always struggled breathing and snoring.  Decided that getting my tonsils out and deviated septum fixed would fix the problem.  Went to and ENT and was told they would fix the problem but not touch my nose cosmetically.  I felt if I was going under sugically I might as well do some cosmetic!  That’s when I ended up in Dr. Sturm’s hands.  I have had an amazing experience and could not be happier with the results.  I felt the recovery was simple and almost painfree!  I would recommend rhinoplasty to everyone!  Easy recovery and amazing results!

26 year old female, Septoplasty, functional nasal surgery

Dr. Sturm and staff were extremely helpful and friendsly.  They always patiently answered all my questions.  I always felt like I was in good hands.  I’ve already recommended Dr. Sturm to friends and will continue to do so.  This was overall a positive and life-changing experience.

Can breath much better than ever.

20 year old female, Rhinoplasty, reduction of nasal bone fracture, septoplasty

In 2011 I first broke my nose during cheer practice but the septum was not deviated.  Then as I kept cheering in 2012-2013 I was hit again in cheer and unknowingly went a year with a deviated septum.  But of course I keep cheering and didn’t stop to go to a doctor when I found out because I knew the only option would be surgery.  Until Feb 2014 I got clocked once again in the nose and after that I had major trouble breathing and once the season ended went to the doctor’s.  Now I can breath 10x better than I ever remember being able to.

18 year old female, Rhinoplasty

When I was young, I was in a very traumatic bike accident that completely scarred my face and ruined my nose.  My dad made me get steroid injections to break down the scar tissue as much as possible, but the bone was still messed up and the cartilage @the tip of my nose was uneven.  Through out my childhood, after the scar got too thin for more injections, my nose was always a topic of conversation.  I was so insecure about it, we always knew I would get a rhinoplasty when I was old enough.  I never imagined it would be @ such a wonderful place with such an amazing surgeon.  My entire time w/Facial Plastic Surgery, from consultation to post-op, has been nothing short of amazing.  I am so thankful for the way I have been cared for here, not to mention the fabulous results.  Dr. Sturm is the best by far.
