"Dr. Trott has changed my life! I found her by getting recommendations from about 4 girlfriends who had the same procedure I was going in for. All were happy with their results, so I knew she was definitely someone I wanted to meet with. As soon as I met her for my initial consultation, I knew she was the surgeon for me. She is beyond friendly and warm and I knew I would be in good hands. She really took her time with me, showing me additional photos, thoroughly explaining the procedure to me. Aside from me really liking her work, I was happy with the fact that she only performs one surgery a day so she can take her time. I had met with another surgeon who would have slotted me as his 4th surgery for the day. Her surgical team is amazing, I didn't have one complication. She came to visit me at the aftercare facility and makes herself available to her patients by cellphone. Addy, her office manager, is so friendly and helpful. I am still healing but am already so happy with the results! Everyone I know tells me how amazing I look and that the work looks so natural. I literally cannot say enough good things about Dr. Trott. She is THE BEST!!!"
"Dr. Trott is incredible! She came highly recommended from my OBGYN. If you have any questions about a procedure, book a consultation, she and her team will go over EVERYTHING and answer every single question you have (and I had a lot). I felt very confident about my surgery, what to expect before and after, and what the recovery would be like. I am so happy with my results and have never..."
"I cannot thank you and your staff enough for everything, you're truly "the best of the best". Every aspect, from the initial consultation to seeing the final results has far exceeded my expectations. You've changed my life in so many ways! I was so impressed with your kind and approachable nature. You answered every question and made me feel so comfortable throughout the process. I had complete confidence in my decision from my first conversation with you. And now that I can see the results of your hard work and talent I am completely in awe and couldn't have dreamed of it being any better. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!"

"I recently had a "mommy makeover" with Dr. Trott. I've always worked out hard and eaten healthy food, but as a mom of two boys, working full time, I was not happy with how my body looked. Dr. Trott performed a breast reduction with a lift as well as some liposuction around my abdominal area and back. Dr. Trott had been recommended to me by a friend who also happens to be a surgical nurse, and I trusted her recommendation and I'm so glad I did. This procedure literally changed my whole attitude and increased my confidence tremendously. I used to hide my breasts with baggy shirts and minimizer bras. I had neck and shoulder pain constantly. Those issues have completely disappeared. My husband always said he loved me and looked great all the time, but now, he says I look like I did before I had our children and he's thrilled. The only thing I'm disappointed with is that it took me so long to make this decision."
