Hands down the best physician experience that I have ever had. Not only does Dr. Stanwix come with the highest degree of training and credentials, he also has a bedside manner that is unmatched. He is empathetic, kind, highly skilled, and he truly cares about the work that he is doing and the patients that he cares for. You will certainly feel like his only patient, despite him being highly sought after by many. My results have truly blown me away. He created an aesthetic that I thought was not possible with my very difficult case, undoubtedly he is an artist and was able to conceptualize and surgically accomplish the perfect design for me. His unique philosophy and approach to practicing medicine provides an environment of trust and puts you at ease. It is obvious that he has hand picked each and every one of his staff, because they all perfectly reflect his style. They have all gone out of their way to make this the best experience for me showing me kindness, attentiveness, and professionalism. I am truly grateful.

PD, Raleigh, North Carolina

As a first-timer to the world of plastic surgery, I was nervous to say the least. My worries were all for naught in the comfort, care, and attention I received by Dr. Stanwix and his staff. His office is the most beautiful, calming, and immaculate medical office I've ever stepped into. His willingness to take whatever time is needed to answer questions and address concerns is unlike most of my previous experiences with the medical community. I was extremely satisfied with my results, and know that was a direct result of my choice of Dr. Stanwix for my procedure. In any future procedures I might have down the road, my choice will always be Dr. Stanwix.


After 3 pregnancies with 65+ pounds gained for each one my abs were tore apart and my skin was left to just hang there. I was so lucky to find Dr. Stanwix and his team! He answered all my questions, even my most trivial ones and never once not returned an email or call promptly. My scar is tiny, like a pen mark and so low I can wear a low bikini bottom! I look amazing for 44! So I’ve been told. Thanks again Dr. Stanwix for giving me my body back!!!


Very professional and knowledgeable. I felt at ease leaving decisions in his hands. He did a fine job, I’m very pleased and I would recommend him to anyone needing plastic surgery.


Excellent experience all around, with excellent results! My Mommy Makeover could not have gone better. Dr. Stanwix is a perfect combination of skill, listening, responsiveness, and meticulous practice. I am so impressed with the results of my Mommy Makeover, I am returning to Dr. Stanwix in a few weeks for a face lift, brow lift, neck lift and fat transfer to face- something I would have never, ever considered prior to my Mommy Makeover experience with him. Dr. Stanwix has assembled an excellent staff. Their happy rapport and teamwork deliver a seamless, streamlined, enjoyable experience to patients. I am looking forward to the results of my next procedures with Dr. Stanwix!

"Dr. Stanwix is absolutely the best person that could of performed my surgery, he went above and beyond my expectations. His level of compassion is almost non existant with doctors today. If he had a life threatening disease and needed a lung I would not hesitate to forfeit one of mine that's how strongly I feel about the level of service I received from Dr. Stanwix. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about him or his character. He changed my life!!!"

My before and after pictures are the last 8 pictures under neck lift. Dr. Stanwix did an amazing job and I am so happy with the results! I will be 60 in 2 weeks and the neck lift that Dr. Stanwix did has taken 15 years off of my looks. People can't believe that I am soon to be 60! I would recommend him to anyone! Besides the fact that he does good work, he is very kind and truly cares about his patients!

BK, Richmond, VA

"Dr Stanwix performed a very complicated microsurgery procedure on me called a "free flap" I developed a very bad staph infection after compound fracturing my fibula and dislocating my ankle. The free flap procedure was the only option to save my foot. If not for Dr Stanwix, I would have lost my foot to amputation. I will always be thankfull to him for saving my foot. He is the nicest most caring doctor I have ever known."

JD, Richmond, VA

"Dr Stanwix is a gem. He helped me through the most horrific experience of my life. In Aug of 2012, I slipped and fell in a hallway. I had no time to break my fall, so I hit the wall head-on with my forehead. The momentum spun me around to the other side of my face where I broke several cheek bones. With the swelling and discoloration I was almost unrecognizable. Fortunately, I was referred to Dr Stanwix. Within 12 hrs of seeing him, he performed surgery on my face. With his facial trauma experience and latest medical techniques, he was able to repair my cheek bones without cutting into my face. I have since completed a follow-up surgery to repair the damage to my forehead. I now look like myself again, even better. I have never felt such confidence in anyone, as I do with him. I like the fact that he is up on recent medical breakthroughs and that I can trust him to be honest and forthwith with me. His compassion equals that of a family member. I recommend him to anyone."


"Awesome Doctor! Dr. Stanwix is a patient and caring doctor. He made the procedure as comfortable as I could have imagined. He truly cares for his patients and their needs."


I am over the moon ecstatic with my Mommy Makeover results from surgery with Dr. Stanwix. I am 23 weeks out from surgery and my results keep getting better and better.

Dr. Stanwix is the perfect combination of experienced, meticulous and responsive. He takes ample time to listen to the patient's concerns and desires, applies his considerable experience, and communicates his knowledge and expertise to the patient in terms of potential outcomes. Dr. Stanwix listened carefully to my concerns and the results to which I aspired, gave me feedback in terms of what was realistic and could be expected in terms of outcomes, and explained to me what was possible.

In both the initial consultation in which we mapped out a surgical plan, and again on the morning of the surgery when we went over the plan again, Dr. Stanwix asked specific questions, made specific recommendations, and asked me for my input in terms of his recommendations. Together we formulated and finalized a surgical plan, which Dr. Stanwix and his team executed meticulously and flawlessly.

Because of his meticulous practice, his careful listening and his expert guidance, my results have met my expectations and exceeded them. This surgery changed my life in the best of ways.

Bonus round, Dr. Stanwix delivers this entire experience with a happy, positive attitude and bedside manner. This man obviously loves his job!

I would also like to recognize the wonderful staff that Dr. Stanwix has assembled. He values his employees and it shows. The office radiates with a happy, positive vibe, which is so important. The team works well together. Their efficient operation gives a smooth, seamless patient experience.

I am so impressed and pleased with my Mommy Makeover experience with Dr. Stanwix and his team that I am returning in a few weeks for additional surgery on my face, forehead and neck. I am so excited and grateful to have access to this wonderful surgeon!

Dr. Stanwix,
We are very fortunate the day you were introduced into our lives. We feel very lucky and blessed to have had you as our doctor.

TP, Richmond, VA

Rhinoplasty----I give Dr. Stanwix my highest recommendation. He's caring, passionate and not assuming. I had a rhinoplasty procedure done by him and so happy with the over all result. He lived up to the expectations we discussed together in the pre-operative work up and things are getting even better. His staff were friendly and professional. In short, it was a very pleasant experience. Eman Abdul-Nabi

Best I ever dealt with! Excellent knowledge and care. Thank You!


I am very pleased with the result of my surgery performed by Dr. Stanwix and would highly recommend him.

I had been dealing with a skin issue for over 6 months and no surgeon could fix it. Dr. Stanwix performed my surgery and it was solved in 2 weeks. He was the best! Thank you so much for making my life better!

AB, Chesterfield, VA

I would highly recommend Dr Stanwix to family and friends. He quickly put me at ease when discussing my breast reduction and the expected outcome. He is professional, kind and caring. He made me feel like I was his most important patient of the day and that all of my concerns were justified. I was thrilled with the final results and would never use a different surgeon in the future.


Dr. Stanwix, We cannot begin to find the words to express how much your loving care has meant to us. This journey continues to be both physically and mentally draining. Thank you for always being within our reach. You humble us. Thank you!!!

I had multiple procedures, both surgical and non-surgical performed by Dr. Stanwix with excellent results! I am so happy I found him! He is a caring and compassionate cosmetic surgeon and person. If you are considering ANY cosmetic procedures, consult him first. You will be glad you did!!!

Richmond, VA

Dr Matthew Stanwix is a compassionate and dedicated individual whose client/Md relationship is beyond reproach. I feel so fortunate that I chose Dr Stanwix , my experience from beginning to end was very positive.I highly recommend him to any one who is considering plastic surgery. I look and feel like a new person,my self esteem improved thanks to Dr. Stanwix.

Richmond, VA

Today I celebrated the first anniversary of my bilateral mastectomy and the beginning of my breast reconstruction. From the time of my initial consultation and throughout the reconstruction process, I have felt blessed to have Dr. Matthew Stanwix as my plastic surgeon. First, I know that I have had a physician with excellent credentials and surgical skills. Second, Dr. Stanwix treats his patients with the utmost compassion, courtesy, and respect while providing meticulous, personable care throughout the process. He strives to connect with his patients, providing valuable information and answering their questions. I recommend him, without reservation, to anyone in need of reconstruction, and I will certainly consult Dr. Stanwix if I need any plastic surgery in the future.

TW, Richmond VA

Dr Stanwix was awesome! I had booked my consult with him out of curiosity after he replied to a question I posted here and I'm so glad I did. I felt like he listened to me and what my expectations were. I had been told I needed a lift but I just didn't see it and Dr Stanwix felt I had a good probability of not needing one either. The best part in my opinion was he assured me that if I do need a lift, it was no big deal to schedule it at a later time... This way my body will be the deciding factor and I'm not automatically going to be subjected to the extra scars that come with the lift. I really can't say enough nice things and I'm super psyched!

Richmond, VA

Thank you for your time and conversation. Your open pride and sharing are extremely refreshing. After many years and plastic surgery experiences I have never been so at ease and happy with my results as I was with you. No other surgeon had even compared. I wish you well and my extended deep thanks to you!

CL, Sussex, VA

Excellent !! Caring and compassionate! Talented! Expert in the field of plastic surgery! Outstanding professionalism !

JK, Richmond, VA

Dr. Stanwix is second to none when it comes to caring for his patients during their cosmetic procedures and/or surgery.
I have had several procedures performed by Dr. Stanwix. When I first met Dr. Stanwix, fall of 2012, our consultation was so comfortable. He took a genuine interest in me and what I was looking for. From that point on, pre-surgical workup, peri-surgery, and post surgery follow up, I always felt he was only a phone call away should I run into any problems, or have any questions.
I have had 2 major cosmetic procedures/surgeries by Dr. Stanwix and also other enhancements, for example juvaderm and botox.
I strongly recommend Dr. Stanwix if you are considering any cosmetic procedure.

SS, Richmond, VA

We know a guy whose name is Dr. Stanwix
He's a surgeon you know and we like him for that
He cuts and he shaves little pieces of us
He's good at it so we don't make a fuss

We hope he cuts in the right places
Surely Someone helps him get in all the spaces
He will get it out and make us all new
Its a bet we will take all his slices are true

So go ahead Dr. Stanwix and get it all away
Make sure when you finish I can still strike a ball
This whole thing is not something that I would chose
It's a game that I hope you want let me lose

JA, Richmond, VA

Be assured that, if the situation arose, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dr. Stanwix to a friend or family member.

ES, Mechanicsville, VA

Naples, FL

The absolute best medical experience I've ever had. Everyone was incredibly friendly and attentive and it really helped rid my anxiety through the whole process. I've never been happier with my body.

Love this man! Would highly recommend him. His work is Impeccable. He gives great advice, and I’m glad I listened to his Recommendations. I couldn’t be more happy with my outcome

Dr. Stanwix is an AMAZING Surgeon! Great bedside manner and he has unmmatched skills and knowledge in his field. He performed my BBL, and the results could not have been better! His staff are also warm and welcoming. Highly Recommend !! I will definitely work with him in the future.

After over a year of unexplained health issues and multiple emergency surgeries, I decided to have my implants removed in hopes it would help improve my health. This decision took me quite some time because I was extremely concerned with the possibility of looking deformed. I am currently a little over two weeks out from Enbloc explant, doughnut lift, and fat transfer and I couldn’t be more pleased with my results! I will forever be grateful for Dr Stanwix helping me get my health and life back as well as helping me retain my confidence.

Dr. Stanwix is a model plastic surgeon: extremely knowledgeable, highly skilled, and easily accessible to his patients. He surrounds himself with equally skilled and professional staff who reflect his philosophy of medicine. My consultation, surgery and subsequent recovery have been excellent - better than expected. Thank you, Dr. Stanwix for offering such an exemplary cosmetic surgery practice to the area.


Dr Stanwix did an awesome job!! I could not be more pleased. He was well worth the 3 hour drive each way for his caring expertise. I have doctors see my breast and remark at the quality workmanship he did.


Dr. Stanwix is top notch. Not only does he do an amazing job, but he listens and cares for his patients. He takes time out to listen to concerns and answers any questions that I have. Absolutely amazing doctor and surgeon.


A fine plastic surgeon, a fine thinker, overall class act. Would recommend him to friends and family without hesitation.
