Patient Testimonials

Dr. Maurice is amazing. I was in my mid 30's when I was diagnosed with breast cancer; I chose bilateral mastectomy after neoadjuvant chemotherapy. I was pretty worn down after chemo, so the fact that he gave me the option to have immediate reconstruction (one surgery instead of several) was a blessing. I honestly could not be any happier with the results. It's only been a month and all of my doctors have told me it's hard to believe (when looking at my new breasts) that I just had a mastectomy. When you are amidst the cancer fight, cosmetic outcomes are the least of your concern; however, after treatment has ended it's nice to retain that piece of my femininity. I'm glad that he stayed focus on good cosmetic outcomes even when that wasn't on my radar. Likewise, my recovery was speedy and honestly pretty easy. My family and I are so incredibly thankful for the surgical team of Dr. Maurice and Dr. Beck at Mercy. One more thing, the staff at his office is amazing, always helpful, and timely. Again, I could not ask for anything more.
Best plastic surgeon around!!! He is so nice, genuine, and caring. It is always a leap of faith trusting a surgeon to operate on you. I am lucky to have known other people who had surgeries done by Dr Maurice and were extremely happy with his care and their outcome. That is why I choose him. He is very meticulous and so very amazing at what he does. I am so happy with my outcome. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon.
I highly recommend Dr Maurice. He came highly recommended to me, and I agree that he is one of the best cosmetic surgeons in Iowa. I am so so happy with my results. He took time explaining everything to me and took time answering my questions. He promised to take good care of me and he did!!! I couldn't be happier.

Dr. Samuel Maurice participates in the ASPS Ask A Surgeon service. View responses to public questions below.

Gynecomastia

Breast Reduction

Member Response:

Thank you for your question. When I evaluate a patient with gynecomastia, there are many things I look at. It would be important to know if there are any medical conditions, medications, and /or drugs that could cause your gynecomastia. A physical exam to look for any other potential causes would also be important and also to feel for any lumps. In cases where no other causes are identified, surgery can be a very good option. The type of surgery really depends on each patient’s unique anatomy. From your question, it appears that your excess breast tissue is mainly under the areolas. Surgery can be very successful for you, but an in-person consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon is important. I hope this helps! Take care, Dr M.

Tummy Tuck

Member Response:

Thank you for your question. In my practice, I often combine surgeries such as a tummy tuck and arm lift in healthy patients. I find that combing procedures is often more convenient for patients, but it does lengthen the procedure, and you would have post-operative restrictions for both recovering areas . A careful review of your medical history would be important to make sure you are a good candidate. I hope this helps!

inverted nipple

Breast Augmentation

Member Response:

Thank you for your question. An inverted nipple can be successfully treated in the office under local anesthesia. Before undergoing this surgery, it would be important to make sure there are no underlying breast lumps that could also cause inversion of the nipple. I would recommend an in-person consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon. I hope this answers your question. Take care, Dr M

Above and beyond my expectations - both Doctor Maurice and his staff. From initial visit all the way through post surgery, my experience has been exceptionally positive. I highly recommend Doctor Maurice and would choose him as my PS again.
I would recommend Dr. Maurice and his staff to anyone! They are very professional, great bedside manor, and great post op! Very caring all around. His staff is fantastic as well! I was recommended to him by a family member and would do the same.
Dr. Maurice and his entire staff were super amazing! I had skin in all the wrong places after massive weight loss and he was so kind and respectful. He was incredibly professional with just the sweetest bedside manner. His staff was phenomenal to work with during the entire process as well. I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon. His work and minimal scarring was so well done I'll be seeing him again to get the rest of this body taken care of.
Wonderful experience. Great bedside manner. Very professional. Excellent results. Would definitely recommend.
I cannot say enough good things about Dr Maurice and his staff. My prior pregnancies wrecked by tummy. My tummy was poochy and I had lots of stretched and droopy skin. It would not get better even after lots of exercise. I was embarrassed to be in a swimsuit. After Dr Maurice did my tummy tuck, I have been able to wear my swimsuit all summer long! I can't be happier. I now have the tight trim tummy that I had before kids. Great bedside manner and wonderful results! I would recommend Dr Maurice to anyone looking to have plastic surgery.
Very friendly dr. and office staff. Dr. Maurice answered each of my questions thoroughly and was very informative. Thank you for loving what you do! It shows!
I had a wonderful experience with Dr Maurice and his staff. On my first visit, he took a lot of time with me. He seemed to really care. I have heard from others how meticulous he is. I am very happy with how everything looks and turned out. His care after surgery has been wonderful. He and his staff are warm, professional, and friendly. I highly recommend him.
Fantastic staff and great experience! Extremely good bedside manor, very professional, and great post op as well. I would recommend him to anyone!
