Lorri Cobbins, M.D. Testimonials

"Dr. Cobbins - I forgot to say an extra thank you. I went wedding dress shopping last month and thanks to your amazing work, I was actually able to enjoy it and found my dress! My bridal consultant made a comment about having some options being 'more blessed up top' and I couldn't help but smile at knowing I was simply blessed with an amazing surgeon who gave me natural-looking results! Thank you again!" -K.L.

Choosing you as my surgeon was one of my best decisions. I knew you would understand and try your best.

“I have nothing but great things to say about Dr. Cobbins, Gordana, and all of the nurses who assisted in my surgery. I was initially referred to Dr. Cobbins by my friend. I inquired about her doctor after seeing her result. My friend had nothing but great things to say about her amazing experience. A breast augmentation was something that I have considered for years but I am very picky with how I would want my results to look (natural and not fake). After researching the website for Dr. Cobbins, I knew she would be the one performing my surgery. Dr. Cobbins took her time with me, answered all of my questions and knew I did my research. Dr. Cobbins, you are a miracle worker and have the skills to achieve amazing results with your patients! I will never be able to say enough about you and tell you how grateful I am! Again, thank you so much and I will definitely pass your name on.” -H.Z.

“The eye of an artist, the technical ability of an engineer, and the understanding of a woman, Dr. Cobbins has skillfully incorporated these three gifts and the results are magical. The self esteem and confidence boost I’ve received is a bonus! Most importantly, my husband loves my youthful look and encouraged me every step of the way. He is even considering a little maintenance work himself! From her personable office staff, to the OR and hospital employees, but especially to Dr. Cobbins’ professional, patient demeanor, I felt comfortable and confident that I was in excellent hands. It is not often that we find a person that is lovely and friendly, yet humble and kind. To find that in a surgeon is truly rare. Thank you for not only meeting, but exceeding, my expectations.” -J.V.H.

“The list of wonderful things I have to say about Dr. Lorri Cobbins and her staff is endless. Her staff was organized, pleasant, helpful and very caring. Dr. Cobbins gave me the time I needed from her to answer my questions and make me feel at ease. Her style is easy going and calming. She is very compassionate and makes you feel comfortable from the moment she walks through the door. Regarding her skill as a surgeon, she is remarkable. My results were better than I imagined. She takes her time, she listens and she has changed my life. I highly recommend her. Thank you, Dr. Cobbins!” -V.V.

“I went to Dr. Cobbins after years of losing weight and pounds of loose skin. She actually sculpted and removed skin and gave me a waistline that I haven’t had in over 20 years. She is a very talented surgeon but I also consider her to have artistic surgical abilities. I have already recommended Dr. Cobbins to family and friends. I wouldn’t hesitate to contact her should I need her services in the future.” -R.G.

“Having a breast reduction was a scary thought. Having Dr. Cobbins as the doctor who did the procedure took all that fear away the moment we met. She treated me so good and makes me feel very comfortable. The surgery went better than well and her care for me was the best. I feel better than ever and owe it all to Dr. Cobbins.” -A.M.

“Dr. Cobbins is one of the most personable, professional surgeons I have met. From the very first appointment to the follow up I’ve trusted her skill and abilities, and felt comfortable in her care!! She’s the best!! :)” -M.F.

“I have been undergoing laser treatments with Dr. Cobbins. After several treatments I have noticed quite a difference and am pleased with the results. Most importantly, I find Dr. Cobbins to be informative and personable. Any doubts I may have had, she put at ease. I would and will highly recommend her.” -V.S.

“I became a patient of Dr. Cobbins to complete my weight loss journey. It started by losing 130 lbs after having weight loss surgery. However I was not happy with my appearance. I came to see Dr. Cobbins and she was kind and professional. I am very happy with my outcome, that I have referred many people to see her.” -D.M.H.

“Provides patient with realistic expectations of plastic surgery. Trusting and comforting from the first visit to my pre-op to my final appointment.” -J.R.B.

"In life it is very rare to meet someone whose beauty on the outside matches his or her beauty on the inside. The same can be said about the medical profession. A doctor’s skill set rarely matches their bedside manner. I can honestly say all of the above apply to Dr. Cobbins. Not only is she a joy to be around, she is above all else an excellent surgeon. I had a breast augmentation done recently with a lift. I breastfed my twin girls for a year, and after the milk had dried up I was left with a B cup in a FFF sack. Dr. Cobbins did a fantastic job!! She said she’d take care of me like I was her sister and she did. I wanted to be sexy but not look like a bimbo. I have daughters and bouncing around with gigantic breast was not the look I wanted. Dr. Cobbins helped me select the perfect size, and approach. If you want larger breast but to still look natural this is your surgeon. I never felt handed off to an assistant or nurse she was by my side the entire way. Every concern or question I had she validated and handled with tact. My husband is also thrilled, I feel sexy again. I adore Dr. Cobbins not only as a person but also, as an excellent surgeon." -H.Y.

“My experience was amazing from start to finish. Dr. Cobbins was informative and nice at all turns. My pre & post op nurse was perfect and made me feel so welcome. The front desk clerk was friendly and welcoming. The anesthesiologist was very professional and did a wonderful job. It is my first night home and I feel like a million bucks! I am already SO pleased with how my breasts look. Thank you Dr. Cobbins and staff!” - J.H.

“I truly appreciate what you did for me and how the reconstruction and implant turned out for me. I appreciate your concern as a doctor and attention to detail…You may recall I “work” in a bathing suit teaching Water Fitness classes and ladies are always exclaiming, “Wow, you can’t tell,” which is truly a testimony to your excellent work.”

“Thank you for being a perfectionist and allowing God to bless you…All of your patients are truly blessed to have you as their doctor.”
