"Perky and perfect!"
5 50Reviewed 29 May 2015 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Breast Implants,Breast Reconstruction
First, I want to thank Dr. Merten and all the staff for being so great and making the experience of my breast augmentation way less scary than it had to be. Overall, it was an awesome experience and I would do it all again tomorrow and wouldn't change a thing, from the first appointment to going under and waking up. It is the best thing I have ever done for myself. Seeing Dr. Merten, I knew he was the one. Dr. Merten has a dry sense of humour and is straight to the point. No up-talking anything and he says it how it is, which I really appreciated. He was very honest in his appointments and I knew going into it my risks. He is also awesome at sizing you up. From my measurements, he picked the ideal size and from my pictures, together we achieved the perfect size (my biggest fear was waking up with boobs way too big). My incisions are almost invisible after 5 weeks and were almost invisible from the start. The biggest thing for me is the actual surgery. Something I was so scared about and the whole process was actually enjoyable. And I put that down to the amazing surgeon I chose. He was gentle and so precise when drawing on me. I didn't have a thousand rules I had to follow afterwards. It was simple. If it hurts, don't do it. 5 weeks into it and I am already sleeping comfortably on my tummy. I had no bruising. Barely any pain at all. Nothing like I had heard of or was expecting. A pain of about 2/10. My poor deflated boobs (from the kids sucking the life outta them) are now perky and perfect! I still cannot believe I actually went through with it all sometimes, but I do not regret a thing and recommend Dr. Merten to absolutely everyone I speak to. My husband and I cannot speak more highly of him. I also have to mention Renee - she has been a gem! She is always willing and available to talk. She makes you feel comfortable to ask any questions - dumb or not - and is a great asset to the team. I loved having her email and being able to contact her about anything pre and post op. I cannot thank you all enough. THANK YOU!

From my very first enquiry, Laura was the most helpful from all of the places I spoke to. I thoroughly did my research first online. I spent hours and hours reading about all the most talked about doctors in Sydney, going through forums and websites. I made my decision to see Dr. Merten first from my research but Laura sealed the deal on the phone. She was helpful and answered all of my questions and made me feel comfortable and gave me her time.

Treatment Received: Areola Reduction,Breast Reconstruction
Dr. Steve Merten had a careful and considerate approach to my problem regarding my breast deformity and I have every confidence in his abilities. His technical prowess has allowed me to get on with my life. I would have no hesitation in recommending him as a competent surgeon.

I was very well cared for by both the doctor and the nursing staff pre and post operation. Could not be happier with the result. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dr. Merten and his staff for any cosmetic procedure.

Treatment Received: Breast Implants
Breast augmentation.

I visited Dr. Merten in August last year for a breast augmentation consultation. From the very beginning, I was made to feel comfortable by both his friendly staff and from Dr. Merten himself. The whole process was seamless and very easy. I was extremely happy with my results (and they only continue to get better each day as it settles completely). I highly recommend Dr. Merten to anyone considering cosmetic surgery. His experience and knowledge is second to none!

"Highly recommend."
4.8 50Reviewed 23 Feb 2015 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Full Abdominoplasty,Breast Lift
Full abdominoplasty, breast lift reduction.

I was finally certain I wanted plastic surgery, but knew I had to find the right surgeon to do it. I did quite a bit of research and was impressed by Dr. Merten's website, specifically the quality of information posted, including his medical qualifications, and most importantly, the published proof of the quality of his work (his gallery of before and after shots). At the conclusion of my initial consultation with Dr. Merten, I was very pleased with his professionalism, his manner, attention to detail, and objective opinion on the type of results I could achieve. I booked my surgery date then and there! Needless to say, six months later, I am absolutely thrilled with the results. I now have my pre-pregnancy body back! I would do it again in a heartbeat. I can highly recommend Dr. Merten and his wonderful team.

"Would definitely recommend"
4.6 50Reviewed 28 Mar 2013 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Open Rhinoplasty
I saw Dr Merten earlier this year for an open rhinoplasty, after searching for a few months for the right surgeon. I was impressed with his gallery online, so decided to go with him. He has a beautiful clinic, and I found him to be very friendly and easy to talk to, and he really listened to what I wanted/hoped to achieve. He was very thorough with explaining to me the process and what he was going to do, what it would look like afterwards, post op care etc, and it put me at ease as I felt in the loop. After the surgery I didn't even need any pain medication, there wasn't too much swelling, and the pre and post-op care by the nurses was great. I got my cast off earlier this week and I am absolutely thrilled with the results- they're better than what I was expecting, very natural looking and subtle, I'm so happy. Would definitely recommend him as rhinoplasty surgeon.
