When I walked into your office a few months back, I had no idea at the time just how much that one visit to a perfect stranger was going to change my life forever. I was scared and nervous, and had not completely made up my mind that I was going to go through with any type of procedure. I came to you, after losing a fair bit of weight, but I was unhappy with my end result. After all the training (rain, hail or shine) I went through, my change of diet. I felt that I was cheated of all my hard work, which led me to your office. After meeting with you for the first time, I knew that you could help me, I felt comfortable with you, and loved how honest and up-front you were about everything and I knew I would end up with the body that I deserved :) It was a matter of weeks and I was in hospital, again nervous and scared, but so damn excited :) I knew it was going to be hard, but with your words I was ready for anything. The first couple of days in hospital were the hardest, but I couldn't stop thinking about how much I wanted to get out of bed and show off my new body... Everyday got a little easier, and now 4 months down the track after my Abdominoplasty and Liposuction, I have dropped a couple of dress sizes (Im running, I cycle, and I Zumba), I'm wearing a size 12 suit, and I have an amazing (beautiful scar) along with my amazing new body - This I thank you for... A new lease on life :) In my 30 years I have not smiled this much ever :) I would recommend you to anybody!! Thank you so much again.

To whom it may concern,
Before I had my breast augmentation with Dr. Edinburg, I was always frustrated with padded bras and purchasing clothing that I actually never felt comfortable in due to the fact that I had no breasts. The fact is that in terms of normal female development I had progressed quite well into a healthy woman, but unfortunately my breasts grew slightly when I was 11 years old and that was it. And now I was going on 20 years old and finding bras that once fitted me when I was 12 were now gaping in the cup!
My mother had told me that she was in the exact same situation at my age, but getting breast implants was a life changing experience for her, and she has never looked back since!
I made an appointment with Dr. Edinburg to find out information regarding pricing, operation procedures and recovery time, and by the end of the appointment I wanted to book a date.
Three days after the operation, I was concerned that the size of my new breasts were not that different in comparison to the size they were preoperative, and I was upset that I felt uncomfortable for nothing. But when I was permitted to shower and remove the prescribed tight-fitting bra I was modeling in front of the mirror for a good 10 minutes admiring the vast improvement and almost forgot to shower!
Kind regards, Laura
In July 2007 I had abdominoplasty to reduce the overhang that had resulted from my weight loss. I also had liposuction performed on my hips.
These procedures are not without potential complications (like all surgery) but mine went very, very well. After my recuperation period (6-8 weeks) I fully appreciated what I had done.
No belly! Hello feet! I can do my shoes up without cutting off my breathing and with no difficulty. My "trunk" has not much "junk" anymore and I am delirious! I do not get tired during the day anymore. You can actually see where my breasts stop and my abdomen begins!
I have gone down at least 1 dress and pant size. I have more energy, more confidence and NO reason to over indulge ever again.
Truly, honestly, I can say that this surgery literally changed my life. I am about to undertake my PADDI diving certificate over the Xmas period. I have taken up Tap Dancing and am planning to travel because I am fitter and healthier than I have been in a long time.

I'm not sure if you remember me. I had your amazing hands do some work on my nose about 3 years ago. I am writing to you just to say thank you so much for doing a brilliant job and for helping make me a more confidant person and change my life!
When I look in the mirror I think about how conscious I used to be and how I don't need to be like that now as I love the shape and look of my nose. People are always commenting on how "cute" my nose is and that's them not knowing I had a little work done on it! That is the biggest compliment of all - how natural it looks and how great it makes me feel.
I am always giving people your name and location if they do have any issued with themselves not only because I trust you but because you were so patient and understanding during my decision making process.
Again, than you so much Dr Mark for making me a happier person with the way I look and for the great work of Art on my nose.

This is just a short note to thank you for the excellent work you did on removing 2 moles, one on my face and the other below my right ear. After 2 weeks of surgery, there was hardly a scar. I have already recommended you to two work colleagues.
All in a day's work for you but the results will remain with me forever . You have made such a difference to the way I feel about myself. Thank you so much until the next time we meet!!
To Debbie and Team,
A note to thank you for your kindness. We were so impressed with the care and support offered to us during my preparation, surgery and recovery. Thank you. Such a small word but it's filled with gratitude.

Dear Dr Edinburg,
You performed a Dupuytren's operation on my right ring finger in June 2005 and I am writing to say how pleased I am with the results. I have not forgotten your warning that the disease can recur. However I have almost normal use of my right hand, even typing after a lapse of several years. I inherited this condition from my father, who was a fine musician until Dupuytren's affected his dexterity. In the early 1960s little could be done to relive his condition. I am grateful for the progress in medical science and so fortunate to have a physician with your knowledge and surgical skill.
Yours in appreciation, Michael C
Dearest Dr Mark,
I think I should begin this letter by saying the one thing I've wanted to say since you first agreed to help me. THANK YOU!! Thank you SO incredibly much from the bottom of my heart... thank you. Thank you for completely changing my life and enhancing my happiness to its highest possible level. Believe me, I'm not saying any of this lightly, you have given me the best gift of all, self confidence and the ability to walk into a room and greet everyone with the biggest smile ever!
Yours sincerely, Chantelle H
I feel like I have been on a mission for 12 years. After consulting two other cosmetic surgeons regarding a breast reduction, I found Dr Mark Edinburg. I took a few months to decide to go ahead with a breast reduction and abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). Never at any time have I felt uncomfortable with any information or communication with Dr Edinburg. At all times his staff (Debbie, Eva and Wanda) have been very friendly and approachable. Even the anesthetist Dr Jean Marie Fricot was excellent (very little pain). I am extremely happy with the end result. I now have a wardrobe of clothes that fit, at no extra expense or shopping. The follow-up visits have been as friendly and professional as the first day I had my consultation. I cannot speak highly enough about everything from beginning to end.
Yours faithfully, Pauline B
