Revision Policy

Every plastic surgeon will have a few patients who require revisionary surgery, or have a complication requiring additional surgery. Unfortunately, Dr. Steele cannot guarantee a perfect result. As a courtesy to our patients, it is our policy not to charge a surgical fee for complications or revisions within 6 months of the original surgery date. The patient, however, is expected to pay for any necessary facility and anesthesia fees. You will be provided a full copy of our revisionary policy when you schedule surgery.

Our Testimonials

Dear Dr. Steele,I am writing in an attempt to describe my incredible experience so that other patients will realize that you can change the way you look and see yourself permanently, easily and relatively painlessly.I’m very glad that you and your staff did everything to help me with my brachioplasty.This was actually my first transaction with UF Plastic surgery center and I must say that my satisfaction with my surgery results is immeasurable.

Mrs. E.B-H

Dear Dr. Steele:Thank you for the outstanding job you did on my upper and lower eyelid surgery last May. It has been the best thing I have ever done for myself. The transformation has been amazing. Due to family genetics, I had significant “bags” under my eyes. No amount of make up or weight loss helped. When I went for passport photos, I was told I needed to do something because it looked like my eyes were closed in the pictures.

Ms. P.R.

I am a mother of two children who is petite in size and have a very active lifestyle. I have always been a A and got deflated and smaller after children. After a couple of decades of insecurity and difficulty finding clothes I finally decided to embark into getting cosmetic breast implants at the age of 35. Finding Dr.Steele was not only easy but I had heard through the community of his excellent outcomes. Once I meet him I knew right away he was going to do my surgery.He spent time counseling me about implants but also educated me about where to place the implants and the size that would work best for me. Postop Dr.Steele personally called me to see how I was doing and feeling. His staff was accommodating, personal and made he made me feel very comfortable about me decision. I personally felt I had a spectacular outcome and would not hesitate one second to recommend him.

Mrs. M.H.

Dear Dr. Steele,I just wanted to express how much I appreciate the wonderful care and surgical expertise I received with the two surgeries you have performed on me. I am a nurse and I have worked with many surgeons-good and bad. Dr. Steele is one of the best surgeons I know personally and professionally.After having 3 children (especially having the last two only 13 months apart) it did not do my body good! I always had very large breasts and it was even worse after I had children. They were still large, but a lot of volume was lost resulting in sagging. I decided to have a breast reduction in the summer of 2007 and had excellent results. The recovery time was short and Dr. Steele checked on me after surgery a few times.

K.S.

I had a great consultation with Dr. Steele today. He was caring and listened to my concerns. I would highly recommend this doctor! The reason for my treatment was to see my Esthetician, Jenn. A part of my first-time client visit with this physician was a meeting, as a parAfter two pregnancies, I was left with excess abdominal skin that made me really unhappy & self conscious. The skin was slack and crepey; it lopped over my c-section scar and was even visible under my clothes. I’m a registered nurse in a city with a nationally recognized, major teaching hospital, so I am fortunate to have access to some of the best physicians and surgeons available. Dr. Steele was my first choice, as I work at Shands at the University of Florida and I am familiar with his outstanding work in plastic and reconstructive surgery. When I researched tummy tucks online, I looked at all the before & after pictures I could find, and some were clearly better than others.
