Doctors >Ditesheim Jeffrey A MD
Hands Down Best Plastic Surgeon In NC. This was definitely the best experience I've ever had with a doctor. From the start of my consultation, to all of my post-op appointments, the entire staff at Ditesheim Cosmetic was very friendly and helpful. Dr. Ditesheim was very knowledgeable about the procedure and explained it in a way that was easy for me to understand. The recovery was very easy, and I am ecstatic with the results of my surgery. Dr. Ditesheim was the only doctor I had a consultation with before my surgery, and I could not be happier that I chose him. Thank you Dr. Ditesheim and thank you to his staff!
Can't pay them enough compliments. Staff is outstanding! They always have a welcoming smile, an upbeat attitude, sympathetic to concerns, had patience in addressing questions. I can't pay them enough compliments. I was also completely impressed at my consultation with Dr. Ditesheim. His knowledge and explanation of the procedure, the recovery involved, what results to expect were outstanding. It is obvious that he has a genuine concern for his patients and their recovery. I knew immediately that he would be my doctor of choice. An outstanding experience. Thank you!
Exceptional Patient Care & Awesome Staff. Patient care is exceptional. I never feel rushed when meeting with Dr. "D" and I always feel that he offers the best solution for what concerns me. The entire staff is awesome.
I had rhinoplasty and septoplasty last January and was told that it would take a year for all the swelling to go down. So, to be fair it has been a year since my surgery and I am VERY disappointed. My nostrils are uneven, with my left coming farther down. I also have a bump in the bridge of the right side of my nose. Actually I have a small bump at the top of both sides of my nose that can be felt, it’s just the right side is visible. I did not have unrealistic expectations nor bring in a picture of a nose I could never have. I simply wanted my nose, but “tweaked.” I also needed my airway in one nostril fixed for breathing issues.
As far a bedside manner I really have nothing bad to say. While he is a little cold, I don’t care because the important thing is a doctor does his job correct, not that he is really warm and fuzzy. However, one of the nurses that worked there was horrible. I do not think she is actually there anymore though. She called a few times to check on me but didn’t really act like she cared too much. I also called the office two or three times a few months in with some concerns about inside my nose. I felt like I had a large hard knot inside my left nostril and wanted to know if it could be scar tissue building and if I needed any injections in it. She brushed it off as if it was nothing, told me I was overreacting and that it was most likely a large scab. Well, a year later and it is still there. My dermatologist confirmed it was scar tissue; however, I have no intention of going back to Ditesheim to fix it.
My plans are when money allows and my schedule works to have my nose redone. Maybe I’m mistaken but I thought rhinoplasty was normally to take away bumps in the bridge of the nose, not create them. I feel like I should have spent my $10,000 elsewhere. Take my warning and find a different plastic surgeon before you’re looking to have something redone like I am. On a side note, the other "awesome" reviews look like infomercials.
I am happy again. I am a 28 year old mother with one child; before my child I wore a 32A bra and after had even less breast tissue. I am 5'5", 115 lbs. My greatest fear before surgery was that I did not want to like like I had fake breasts. When I went to the gym I had to wear a padded bra under my sports bra. This made exercising uncomfortable. I just wanted to look like a woman. At the gym, guys and even other women are checking you out. When you don't have breasts you feel like your are missing something. Now (1 year later) I look very natural, even my relatives couldn't tell (I had breast augmentation). Now getting dressed is fun. I stand tall and straighter, I am not embarrassed. I am feeling great. I love it. I feel more normal now (after surgery). I needed breasts, I had none, I dreaded going to the swimming pool. I felt pretty embarresed. I always like my body but did not want to look like a boy from the waiste up. I wanted to look like a woman. Now I feel like a woman.
The Best. I had obsessed for so long about how my body looked after having children! I hated the way my clothes fit and the way I looked in a bathing suit. My consultation with Dr. Ditesheim was sooooo informative. He really understood my frustration and told me how he could help me. The staff in the office were incredible and I always felt that they treated me as their most important patient. I could not have asked for a better experience. My body looks great!
Superb plastic surgeon. For my 40th birthday, I mustered the courage to do something that I'd wanted since my 20's. At the time that I seriously began considering reconstruction, I wasn't familiar with the term "augmentation." My research process began with reading internet articles and advanced to peer reviewed journals from the Johns Hopkins Library. As I educated myself, I questioned my gynecologist and nurse practitioner at the gynecologist's office. I was very timid and felt some degree of guilt for even considering reconstruction. I felt like I was abandoning the values that my family taught me. When asked about reconstruction, my practitioner responded in this way, "Now I have seen a lot of breasts and a lot of augmentations...and DR. JEFFREY DITESHEIM does wonderful work..." At a separate appointment the following year, I asked my gynecologist to name a reputable surgeon. She quickly responded that although she would not have plastic surgery, that she would only recommend Dr. Jeffrey Ditesheim because of the high quality of his work. After visiting with one other local surgeon, I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Ditesheim. Fast forward to today (2008). I must be one of Dr. Ditesheim's most satisfied patients. He is an extraordinary doctor with superb bedside manners. After the procedure, he and the nurses routinely checked on me at home. They were all very professional and a pleasure to work with. My implants are saline, beneath the breast bone. The incisions were done beneath the breasts. My scars disappeared rather quickly. My breasts have just enough sag to command attention. They are sooooooo awesome in a bikini - but because of the sag, they look super natural. There have been no problems with my annual mammograms. My husband did not support my reconstruction ideas. He said that he loved me the way that I was. So -- I paid for it myself. I did this for me - not for him. To conclude, I am more satisfied that I ever imagined and by the way, my husband is too.

Think Twice..... Dr. Ditesheim is arrogant and glib when it comes to patient care. Results and care are far inferior than promised, and his attitude is both rude and condescending. I would never recommend this doctor to anyone when there appear to be so many well-reviewd plastic surgeons in the area.
