Dear Dr. Burden,
I want to thank you so much for a wonderful job that you did for me. My lower eyes, lids and the lipo. My daughter is very happy with her lipo too. You will never be replaced! You are the best.
I.C., Fort Walton Beach, FL.
Dr. Burden gave me my life back after a scary bout with breast cancer. That was way back in '99 & here I am, 16 years later, still enjoying a quality of life I never thought possible. Not everyone my age (senior citizen) would dare wear a 2 piece on the beach!! But, the doc had a sense of humor -- and after being a 34B all my life, made me a 36DD!! Gotta love that guy!*
I would just like to let Dr. Burden know that he and his staff are excellent and I appreciate everything you have done for me... and Joan is the best person that we as patients can ask for..she is an excellent nurse as well as a perfect person..thx alot for great care.*
T.C., Pace, FL
This was my first surgery - ever. The whole experience was very positive. The staff is so pleasant and competent. I wasn't nervous for even one second.
K.F., Fort Walton Beach, FL
I could not have asked for a better experience! The entire staff was fantastic. This was my first ever surgery of any kind. I must say as scared as I was, you all made me very comfortable. Thank you so much for all that was done. If ever I choose elective surgery again, it will no doubt be at Destin Plastic Surgery. Thanks again! My breasts are beautiful!
S.S., Santa Rosa Beach, FL
Thanks to all for making my surgery a happy experience.*
Dr. Burden, Joan and Staff-
WOW! I am so happy! Dr. Burden you have a true gift which combines professionalism, great skill and caring about your patients. Joan and staff, your dedication, knowledge and friendliness made me feel comfortable and confident about my decision from the start and throughout recovery. How can I thank you for my spectacular results!? The person I am on the inside now matches my outside. For the first time in my life I am EXCITED to put on a swimsuit as I am no longer self-conscious about certain parts of my body which used to preoccupy my thoughts. I recommend all of you very highly. Thank you!

I wanted you to know I'm very happy we did a 1/2 syringe in my lips. And, so glad I did my lower lip! It's been four days and they look great and exactly what I envisioned!

Thank you so much for doing my surgery. It had made a real difference. I really appreciate everything you have done for me.*
I couldn't be any happier with my results. I was nervous before surgery but, everyone's attentiveness helped keep my mind off of it. I never had to ask a question because everything was explained in such great detail!
A.B., Pensacola, FL
Dear Dr Burden,
Thank you so much for my beautiful nose! You and your staff made the process so easy and stress free. You truly have an amazing bedside manner-if only all doctors could be like that! I'm starting to see the new shape of my nose and I'm loving it so far. I already feel so much more confident and ready to take on a new chapter of my life. Thanks again!
K.D. Georgetown, TX
WOWZA! I am truly amazed at my results! Your work is incomparable!! You are truly a “body architect.” You have changed my life inside and out and I could not be more grateful for your skills!

Bill [Edelman] –
Just a note to say THANK YOU for doing such outstanding work! You have plenty of awards and recognitions, so I know you know how good you are (!) but I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate you. My face looks phenomenal and no bruises - I walked out and no one could tell I went 'under the needle' this morning. Kudos on blending an artistic eye with a skilled hand. You ROCK!
T.G., Destin, FL

I just wanted to give Dr. Burden a compliment on the face lift he did. I went into Dr. Welch's office and his nurse could not see where the incisions were. Needless to say, very happy!*
You really make me feel appreciated and that means so much to me. Your gift was more than generous and I thank you so much. You are enjoyable to work with, also your staff.*
Dear Dr. Burden and Staff,
Thank you so much! Your staff of the surgery center was awesome and I felt I had the very best of care! I am so happy with my result and feeling great just 24 hours after surgery. Thank you all again! May God richly bless each one of you!*
Thank you Dr. Burden for excellent communication skills. I was so impressed with the amount of time you spent with me during the consultation. All of my questions were answered without making me feel rushed through the office. I see now why Destin Plastic Surgery has an excellent reputation.*

Dearest Dr. Burden,
You are the world’s best plastic surgeon! Always and forever will I be so thankful that you changed my life!
"Dr. Burden and his hair transplantation staff made the procedure comfortable and efficient. I was in that morning — and out by noon. The instructions were straightforward and explained to me and my wife. I was back at work in a few days. The thicker hair on my forehead looks and feels so much better. I like that I don't have a scar on the back of my head."
Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary."
Thanks so much to you all for your part in relieving me of three liters of fat! You all did a fantastic job and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Destin Plastic Surgery for liposuction to others. Everyone was so friendly - so much so I actually enjoyed my day out having surgery! I'll definitely keep in touch. Thanks for everything.
R.J., London, England
Dear Dr. Burden and Staff,
Thank you so much for the wonderful care you provided me whenever I had my surgery. You have a very caring staff.
S.W., Bristol, FL
I wanted to take the time to thank you and your staff for an excellent experience. From my initial consultation to follow-up visits, I have always felt that I was in the very best of hands. Everyone has been extremely professional, caring and attentive to all of my needs and concerns. Thank you so much for huge positive change you've made in my life.
K.C. Pensacola, FL
Absolutely the BEST investment I ever made! Dr. Burden and his staff are top notch. Any questions or concerns I may have had were dissolved quickly. I had a full tummy tuck/flank liposuction, I feel emotionally/physically better at 41 years of age then I did at 20. The recovery time was minimal and the results exceeded all expectations. I highly recommend Dr. Burden for any procedures that you may be considering. Thank you so much!!*
God bless you all, you're all beautiful inside and out…I will continue to praise your entire practice to all my friends and family interested in enhancing their features.*
AB, Pensacola, FL
Thank you so much!!! I love my new look after my breast augmentation surgery this past summer. I am amazed at how natural they look and feel. I had a wonderful experience, surgery went great and it was nothing. I was expecting the worst and it was a piece of cake! All your staff were so kind, helpful and professional. Thank you, thank you!!! I am so happy, it's a NEW ME!
K.E., Memphis, TN
Hello Dr. Burden,
My wife recently had breast augmentation at your facility about a week or so ago, and I just wanted to thank you for such a wonderful job that you did for my wife. Her expectations were exceeded by your expert work and knowledge. Your entire staff there is absolutely first class, and each and every member there was very kind and administered the kindest and most utmost care that you don't usually receive at the medical facilities here in Atlanta.
Once again thank you, and we hope to be back soon to see you for some more consultations in the future.
C.C., Atlanta, GA
Dr. Burden and Staff,
Thank you so much for the beautiful flowers and for taking such good care of me. We really appreciate all that you have done for us. You and your staff have made us feel like family during my procedures.
M & A, Niceville, FL
Thank you is not just two words - it's a million thanks for everything. For being so good, so thorough and so kind. May God bless you and your family.*
R.A, Lynn Haven, FL
In 1999, I was referred to and met Dr. Burden to do a breast reconstruction after a mastectomy. I had been diagnosed with breast cancer. At the time, my mother was receiving chemo and radiation for lung and brain cancer. It was one of the most challenging times of my life. My mother died 9 months after she was diagnosed, the very morning of my mother in laws funeral 600 miles away.
When I met Dr. Burden and his staff I had a sense of "I'm going to be alright-a return to normalcy" to my life again. Little did I know how much! Dr. Burden and his staff assured me I was going to be fine. They were concerned about my physical, emotional and peace of mind issues each time I went in for treatment. Dr. Burden and his staff have a true passion for all of their patients. I always looked forward to seeing everyone at all of my appointments.
I recently had another procedure this year. Yes, the same staff and passion I experienced in 1999 is still there today.
PA FWB, FL
Dear Dr. Burden,
In November of 2007, you performed this procedure (breast augmentation) on me. They are beautiful. I recently had my gyn. check up with my doctor and I had to tell him of my surgery. He could not believe there were NO incision marks anywhere. Even after I showed him where they were he was amazed because they had healed up so well that you cannot tell I ever had surgery! I took that as a great compliment because he has been in practice for many, many years and he has seen many breast procedures. It actually appears that mine are perfectly grown that way! WOW! Thank you so much. I was 45 years old and married for 25 years before I had it done and it has been such a catalyst for me wanting to take really good care of myself. I walk several miles a day and pay attention to the kinds of food I put into my body. I actually make ME a priority which I always had a hard time doing. Many thanks again to you and your wonderful staff!
Sincerely, L.B. Ozark, AL
You made this a great year for me and I look forward to you working more magic on me!
D.W., Panama City Beach, FL
We want to thank you for all you have done for us...and we hope all your patients feel as special as we do. Wishing you Health, Wealth, Happiness, and Longevity.*
Dear Dr. Burden and Staff,
I can tell already what a beautiful job you have done. It is the first time since my cancer surgery five years ago that I like my face. You are an incredible man Dr. Burden. You will never know what this means to me. Many thanks and God bless you.*
Dr. Burden and Staff,
Thanks so much for helping me to get this all together so quickly. I'm so happy and I LOVE the results.*
Thanks again, D.
- I met with a "counselor", instead of a health professional.
- Inconvenient, too far to Atlanta.
- The deadening process was very painful.
With Destin Plastic Surgery...
- The process was 50% quicker (time in surgery) than Bosley.
- The radio ad is excellent.
- I felt like everyone "cared" about me as a patient.
- The 2 technicians planting my hair were very professional-all business and no small talk among themselves.
- Pre care and after care was explained in detail.
- Price was less.
Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.
Thank you all for making me so comfortable and taking such good care of me during my surgery. You all were wonderful and made my experience as pleasant as possible.
E.M., Tallahassee, FL
Dr Burden, Joan, & Staff,
I wanted to say that my experience with each of you from start to finish was nothing short of outstanding. You are truly a First Class, World Class operation and you treat your patients the same. Every question--no matter how small--was addressed quickly and kindly. And, every step of the process was so well laid out and processed seamlessly through the operation on to after-care. I could not praise you both enough for your amazing gifts and abilities you shared with me along with the others who assisted from start to finish. Proud to say I had the pleasure first hand of changing my life in your amazing care. Thank you!
D.S. Jackson, TN
Thank you so much for finding the time to see me during this busy season. Your generosity is appreciated. God bless you and your family.
K.M., Shelby, NC
Bill is wonderful, he needs someone else office staff wise to help his patients as sara is extremely rude and couldn't be bothered to help me as she was gossiping with the nurse that was there.
I recommend the business to everyone! They were excellent and extremely professional!
Just wonderful !!! Thanks Joan !!!!!
I am very happy with my results and I will recommend to all my friends and anybody that ask me where I had my surgery done at and I have some other surgery I want Dr. Burden to do so I will be back soon.
The staff at Destin Plastic Surgery made me feel like their top priority. They all made me comfortable and welcome at the facility. Thank you, Dr Burden, for giving me my self confidence back!
It seems like many of the staff have had too much work done. Fillers, puffy,lips. Just scared me from wanting to get any real "work" done. I used to do regular facials but don't any longer. I had Botox once w bill and he see,s very knowledgeable.
I just had my breast augmentation yesterday and I am already feeling great. Everyone there was so nice and caring. Lisa has already called me this morning to check on me. I can't remember everyone's names, but they all laughed and talked with me. Wow I was really impressed. I will always go to this place for anything I need in the future! Thank you so much, this was life changing and I already feel more like a woman!
Dr. Burden and his staff were all very friendly and professional, particularly his nurse Joan. They put me at ease and answered all my questions. He has performed a few of my procedures, including the most recent breast augmentation, over the span of about two tears and I would never think of going anywhere else. I'm completely satisfied and thrilled with my results.
Everyone was great. I did another consult in pensacola. Your office was better/the consult was easier/dr burden was more thorough. I can't wait to look and feel better. He has the reputation for being the best in our area and I now see why.
The staff was outstanding, very sweet and kind. I had never experience such awesome people. . The doctor was nice and was excited that he knew I wanted to look my best. Even when I was about to go, in to surgery they made me feel comfortable and I was nerves as can be. I think I had a few tears coming down my face. But overall I love my outlook so far its only been 12 days since I had Surgery
I would like to thank all the staff at Destin Plastic surgery for being so great. Especially Joan. She has been so helpful to me: Scheduling appointments, returning calls and email, making sure I understood all the aspects of after care, helping to get me any prescriptions and paperwork I needed.
The recovery has been a little more difficult than I expected, but not because I wasn't told, just me not being prepared for the healing process. Joan has been so patient and has been there to answer every question and allow me to come see her when I wasn't sure all was okay. Thanks Joan
Joan handled many of my questions and concerns. I never felt like I was bothering her. She was always engaging and polite. Her concern for me was very evident. She made my experience a positive one. Dr. Burden was the best.so glad I had the surgery.
Don't know what to tell you.......I think you should treat everybody with the utmost respect and get them tro come to your facility to get treatment.....you did not.
I could not have asked for a better job and better experience. I recommend DPS to everyone. Wonderful place.
I had a face lift and I have had so many compliments.
Live part time in the Northeast (Phila.) and part time in Destin. Always wait to have procedures done by Bill Edleman, He is the best !
The OR staff were great! made me feel very comfortable
I love Destin Plastic Surgery.
Dr Burden took a situation that I did not want to go through again and made it very easy.
I did feel that both of my appointments were rushed but I am very satisfied otherwise.
The best experience I've had and my results are amazing. I love them all!
The very nice and professional young woman who checked me in was great. I'm sorry I do not remember her name. And Bill Edelman was awesome! I was so nervous and he put me immediately at ease and I felt that I was in expert hands - He is so knowledgeable and so caring! Thank you for a wonderful experience.
Thank you Dr. Burden & Staff. Love my new look!
Thank you Destin Plastic Surgery!
I love coming to my appointments knowing that I'll leave feeling better about myself than I did when I arrived. My appointments have all been on schedule with little to no wait time at all, and that's a big deal to me. Staff are always friendly and welcoming. Couldn't ask for anything better!
Dr. Burden did a wonderful job. I love my new look. He took the time to explain all of the options and made me feel safe proceeding with my surgeries. The aftercare was wonderful and I never had to wait for my appointment. Ashley was always waiting in the hallway to escort me into the exam room. Thanks for all the effort. You all are great.!!!
I had a Fully Tummy Tuck and Lipo done with Dr. Burden. I am amazed at my results! Everything was exactly the way Dr. Burden and Joan explained things to be. From my first consultation to my last follow up appointment, Joan never once made me feel uncomfortable. I was comfortable asking any questions, weather they may have been stupid or repetitive. Dr. Burden did not "over exaggerate" what my results were going to be, therefore once I fully healed I was/am more than pleased! I would recommend anyone interested in this procedure to contact Dr. Burden and his staff. Thanks for everything you all have done for me!
Dr. Burden, Joan and Ashley y'all were absolutely amazing! Thank you for doing such a beautiful job and always being there for me and helpful! Thank you again, ...
Dr. Ennius and the surgery staff are wonderful. I never had surgery before and was extremely nervous. They me feel so secure in the process. Thank you for making me feel GREAT!!!!
Great Job ... I am so happy with the results!
Sally is very helpful and knowledge about women's aging skin. I enjoy visiting Sally.
I've also been numerous times to see Bill for Botox. very happy with him as well! Thank you!
I traveled from North Carolina to come here. The best staff and experience. I am planning to come back for more. Trip well worth it and helped me every step of the way. The go above and beyond your needs.
Destin Plastic Surgery staff were exceptional from pre-consultation through surgery and follow-up. I'll be back for more procedures and would not hesitate to refer my family and friends.
Joan Cleat was amazing, there for me 100percent to ask questions and assist me with everything. Dr Burden made me feel comfortable and at ease and he did an amazing job. I would recommend them and their amazing staff to anyone.
Dr. Burden, Joan and staff are so caring and compassionate, I had an amazing experience! thank you both so much!
Treated you like family, professional & informative Everything dr burden told me , happened My recovery was great
Paige and Sarah at the front desk, Sarah Powers, and Bill are the people I see on a regular basis. I always enjoy talking with them-- they are always friendly and very efficient.
