"I'm surprised that there are not more reviews for Dr. Ereso! He's a partner of Dr. Pearl at Pearl Plastic Surgery Center. I had a lip enhancement (Restylane) done by Dr. Ereso and only need one word to describe my experience: IMPRESSIVE! It wasn't my first time reaching to a plastic surgeon for an upgrade and Dr. Ereso definitely beats them all. He listens to what you want, makes sure that everything is going according to your expectations, and double-checks the final result. Also, he's a perfectionist, which is a trait you want in your plastic surgeon. My lips look exactly the way I wanted. I work in the fashion industry and my look is very important to me, so if I trust Dr. Ereso to make me prettier, you can too!;)"

"Dr. Ereso performed my male gynecomastia correction surgery, and I could not be happier with the results.

I had been very nervous about this procedure, and had put it off for more than a decade. However at the very first consultation, Dr. Ereso and his staff made me feel very welcome, helped eased my anxiety with their experience and knowledge, and provided detailed answers to questions that I didn't even know I had or hadn't thought to ask. I left the consultation with complete confidence in Dr. Ereso's ability to perform the operation and it did not take long for me to schedule the follow up appointment.

The process to book the surgery was smooth, expedient, and completely hassle free.

The support from Dr. Ereso and his staff in the days leading up to surgery and during the recovery was incredible. They were always available to answer my questions, and frequently followed up to see how I was doing. The day of the operation itself was a breeze.

I just had my 3 month post-op appointment where we took the "after" photos for comparison. As I mentioned before, I could not be happier with the results. For the first time in 12 years, I am actually looking forward to going to the beach this summer!"

"I cannot thank you enough on the amazing work you've done. I love my new breasts and cannot begin to explain the relief in my back. Thank you so much for everything."

Your entire office made me feel as though I was your most important patient. Thank you!

Dr. Pearl is not only the best surgeon in his field - He is one of the most ethical men I have known (known him for 30 years). His staff - each and everyone is also exceptional - They help you keep everything as smooth as it is.

"Just a quick note to say thank you to Dr. Pearl the new needles are amazing! As I have now entered my midlife I bruise really easily, the last several times I had a "treatment" resulted in questions about my marriage (just kidding) . I had fillers yesterday with the new needles and NO bruising what so ever kudos to Dr. Pearl for providing his patients the ability to Discreetly battle the aging process."

"I was very impressed with Dr. Pearl and his staff." "He's my plastic surgeon for life."

"I am very happy with my procedure. Everyone at Pearl Plastic Surgery Center was nice, calming, and so helpful. I felt like I was in great hands. Shelley was excellent and really made me feel comfortable and calm before and after surgery. Dr. Pearl is so friendly and patient. I had so many questions afterwards, and he answered them and didn't make me feel bad about having all my questions. Thank you to everyone at Pearl Plastic Surgery for you friendliness and great care!"

"I am extremely happy with my results and my entire experience. Dr. Pearl is truly not only an exceptional Plastic Surgeon but a well-rounded doctor as well. His extra support and involvement in my surgery made a huge difference in my outcome. He took extra initiative, had that added creativity and was always there for me. His staff is equally caring and committed to insuring the best outcome possible. Thank you sooo much."

"Dear Dr. Pearl and Staff,
On the drive home from my procedure today, I was reminded again why I value and appreciate the services of you and your staff. Your enthusiasm for what you do and your concern for the well being of the patient (me) is obvious. I see those same qualities in your staff as well. Of course, I also value your tremendous skill and dedication to your specialty. It is a strong tribute that the admirable qualities exhibited by you and your staff are the model for what I seek in other medical professionals."

"Dr. Pearl, your center, staff, colleagues, and yourself are exemplary on your professional demeanor, warmth, and kindness. This attitude by everyone in your office have made this experience not only satisfying, but downright pleasurable.

Thank you! You are the best!"

"I was thoroughly was pleased with the entire staff. Shelley and Judy provided exceptional service and made me feel completely at ease, as well as Dr. Block the Anesthesiologist. Vicki and Peggy were always very pleasant and helpful as well. Thank you for everything Dr. Pearl. You were wonderful! I love the staff!"

"The complete experience absolutely cannot be improved upon. Vicki and her engaging way guided me through the decision process. Peggy was always at the other end of the phone patiently listening, and encouraging me. At the point of no return Shelley so lovingly and competently took me under her wing, and handed me over to Cathy and Judy. Kathy expertly found a 55 year old vein and began my I.V. When I met Judy post op she came up to me with her warm, welcoming way. It all begins and ends with Dr. Pearl: a true artist in whom I have the utmost trust!"

"Dear Dr. Pearl,
I am amazed at the results that came from my surgery! I can't find even one negative thing about my experience with your office or procedure. You did such a great job which I know couldn't have been easy considering I am bigger than the patients you are used to seeing in your office. Although I had lots of work to be done you were able to select with such skill which areas and amounts would give me the best results. I went from a size 14 down to a size 10! Trying on clothes is so much fun now!
Thanks for making me feel so comfortable and not judging me too. You're the best ! Thank you!"

"To the Fabulous Folks at Pearl Plastic Surgery Center -
Thank you for all your support, encouragement and professionalism. You are the greatest!"
