"I had a breast reduction and an upper arm lift, and I am beyond happy with the results from both procedures - I will be eternally grateful to Dr. Brantley and his staff. The entire experience, from my first consultation to my recovery checkups, was wonderful. I had a breast reduction and an upper arm lift, and I am beyond happy with the results from both procedures. My only regret has been not going for a consultation sooner! Dr. Brantley is top notch, and his nurse Macala was extremely helpful throughout the process. So glad I chose Dr. Brantley and The Face & Body Center."

"I’m Amazed! - After 3 c-sections I couldn’t stand to look at my stomach, I hated everything about it. I started looking for surgeons out of state and after 3 consultations with 3 different surgeons I wasn’t feeling confident or satisfied with who I saw, so I decided to look a little closer to home. After my 1st consultation with Dr Brantley I knew I had found the one!! His before and after pictures speak for themselves and his belly buttons are the most natural ones I’ve seen. Dr Brantley was so easy to talk to, explained everything in depth, I never felt as though he was trying to rush through my consultations. I could go on and on but to sum it all up, Dr. Brantley will be my go to surgeon for any other procedure I need/want in the future."
