“Dr. Pietraszek is amazing, I am so happy I chose him! He is an absolute perfectionist, and he cares about his patients. He is an artist and you are his canvas, and he would never put his signature on something that he was not absolutely satisfied with. Its not about the money, its about the art and science of his skill that sets him apart from other Board Certified Plastic Surgeons. He is a cut above, and truly understands the aesthetics of plastic surgery and is a master at what he does. Love, love, love Dr Pietraszek and will recommend him to close friends and family, he IS the best!!! The aftercare that you receive from this doctor is unbelievable, he sees you often, and believes that aftercare plays a huge part in a successful long lasting result! In one word, REMARKABLE!!!” -  TS


"I have just received your patient questionnaire, my mail was only now sent on to be in Sri Lanka.
I have been meaning to write and tell you how delighted I am with the fantastic work you did for me. Everyone involved with my surgery was extremely professional & helpful, my decision was made quickly, although I did seek two other opinions, your practice was by far the one I was most comfortable with. I was very confident that I had make the correct decision in selecting your practice, proven particularly by my post surgery recovery being even easier than I imagined and the results amazing. I love my new breasts, even 6 months later, I can't believe I waited so long to have the surgery!
I have & will continue to recommend you to my friends and would return to you from where ever I am living if I should decide to have any further plastic surgery. Once again thank you for making my surgery so painless in every regard! Oh, yes, I recognise myself in your before & after pictures, my breasts look even better now!  
Best wishes" - BY
