Featured Testimonials

Here’s what our clients have to say

"I loved everything about Dr.Pautler!! She has a fantastic bedside manner making you feel very comfortable around her. Her results speak for themself. She is truly one of the most talented in her profession and we’re lucky to have her in our area! I myself am a nurse and work around other doctors and healthcare professionals so the bar is set high. Dr. Pautler made it a point to call me personally days before my procedure to make sure I didn’t have any questions and is available to you after your procedure any time you need her.  A big part of having a successful and positive experience with any procedure includes the entire medical team. Her nurse, physician assistant, and every person in her office shares the same pleasant, friendly attitude. They truly made every appointment stress free and always greeted me with a smile. My husband had even made the comment that he had never seen me so calm and NOT nervous right before a procedure. It’s because Dr.Pautler and her team had put me at complete ease and I was so incredibly trusting of her and her expertise. I went to her by word of mouth from past patients of hers after consulting other area plastic surgeons. Trust word of mouth and not your social media feeds! She is phenomenal and gave me back the confidence I had prior to having kids! I never write reviews but if this helps anyone in making a decision I’m happy to help because I’m grateful that I was referred to her. To find any office staffed with such amazing people nowadays is truly hard to find:)"

"I have had four procedures with Dr Pautler and each time she has used her foresight, meticulous attention to detail and individual application to achieve the best possible outcome for me. She is honest , conservative and thoughtful in her evaluations. Dr Pautler makes you feel like her favorite and most important patient but her gift is that she makes  all of her patients feel that way ! Her staff is also very welcoming and supportive. I highly recommend Dr Pautler.

I had a revisional breast augmentation done by Dr. Pautler 6 weeks ago, and I couldn’t be happier! I was a very complicated case: 22 year old implants, grade 4 capsular contracture, right implant ruptured…basically I was a mess. Besides the pain, I was embarrassed as it was impossible to put on a swimsuit or anything other than a sweatshirt without adding pads or inserts.

I went for a consultation with another Dr. first and left their office in tears. I had no confidence he would be able to help me. A trusted friend had an augmentation by Dr. Pautler last year and recommended her highly, so I gave it a shot. So glad I did! I knew I was in the right place at that first consultation. Not only is she very personable, but she is knowledgeable about all the issues I was dealing with. Especially the capsular contracture. She spent a lot of time with me, multiple pre-op and follow up appointments. I am 100% sure I went to the right place. Nobody could’ve done a better job, I’m so happy with my results!

"Thank you Dr. Pautler, you are amazing and we are lucky to have someone like you in the Pittsburgh area!

Thank you Nicole for all your help in making sure we had everything ready to go for my surgery (and putting up with all my calls and questions after 🤣)!

Thank you Cara for getting me in the office for my consultation so quickly. I had a feeling this was the place for me after that first phone call!

Thank you Darlene for always being so welcoming and accommodating!

If you are considering breast implants, or like me are having issues with your current implants please go see Dr. Pautler and all the wonderful ladies there, you’ll be glad you did!"


Dr. Pautler was my first choice for rhinoplasty after seeing results she created on 2 patients that were also past clients of mine. What I admired about those results were how natural they looked. I would not have guessed these were “nose jobs,” but the patients spoke openly and highly of how happy they were with both Dr. Pautler’s work and her bedside manner. I couldn’t agree more after my first consultation with her.

"Dr. Pautler spent an hour with me discussing my concerns about the appearance and structure of my nose. She was upfront about what surgery would entail based on the result we were looking for. She was also very honest about recovery time and what I should expect as a patient. She shared an extensive collection of her rhinoplasty work, before and after. I knew she was the right doctor for me.

The surgery went amazing and recovery was quick and much more comfortable than I expected. The result Dr. Pautler and her surgical team gave me is even better than I could have imagined. Instead of making my nose tiny and unsuited to my face, she produced a natural, corrected appearance of my “real” nose. I feel like the best version of myself, after being conscious of my nose for my entire life. Thank you Dr. Pautler, the surgical team, and your wonderful office staff for making me feel valid in my concerns and creating the best nose for me!"

"I was on the fence with going through a Breast Augmentation for a few years. There were obvious reasons on why I wanted one, but I knew that going through with this surgery would need to be done at the best time with the best doctor. After visiting a few doctors that I was uncomfortable with, someone I knew personally suggested trying her doctor, Dr. Pautler. I immediately called the office...”

"I recently went to Dr. Pautler to have my first breast augmentation back in May 2017. Dr. Pautler is such an amazing women and surgeon. From the moment I walked into her office for my consultation to my last follow up appointment, every one in her office was so welcoming, professional, and made my experience so much better. She took a lot of time with me during our initial consultation to...”

Frequently Asked Questions

Have a specific question? Contact us!

The difference between a cosmetic surgeon and a plastic surgeon comes down to the surgeon’s training and qualifications to perform surgical procedures. 

A plastic surgeon completes anywhere from six to eight years of residency after medical school that focuses on providing training in plastic and reconstructive surgery. A plastic surgeon’s training includes cosmetic surgery and a full range of reconstructive options. In addition to completing residency, plastic surgeons must pass both oral and written exams certifying their proficiency in plastic and reconstructive surgery. 

A cosmetic surgeon, on the other hand, does not have to be board-certified in plastic surgery. Instead, they are certified by the Board of Cosmetic Surgery, which is not recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties. This can be obtained by any surgeon (i.e., general surgeon, OB/GYN surgeon) or dentist that performs a 1-2 year fellowship in cosmetic surgery. 

With this information in mind, it is clear that cosmetic surgeons may not be fully qualified to perform extensive surgeries to the same degree as plastic surgeons.  

There is no one age that is best for plastic surgery. Every individual ages differently, and the decision to undergo plastic surgery should consider a variety of different factors, including age, personal preferences, and treatment goals. Plastic surgery can be performed at any age, as long as you are physically and mentally healthy.

With that being said, there are some common age ranges in which some cosmetic procedures are commonly performed. Generally, all plastic surgery should be delayed until the body is fully grown (typically 18 years of age). 

  • In patients under 30, rhinoplasty (nose jobs) and breast augmentation are the most commonly performed procedures. 
  • Between the ages of 35–50, many people begin to experience signs of aging, and thus many turn to rejuvenating procedures such as liposuction, eye lifts, mommy makeovers, and facelifts. 
  • Over 50 patients, commonly undergo facelifts and various non-surgical procedures such as Botox and dermal fillers.

If you have questions regarding whether you are too old or young for a procedure, call Simona Pautler, M.D., F.A.C.S., to set up an appointment and get all your questions answered today.

The most common cosmetic surgery procedures performed by board-certified plastic surgeons are: 

  • Nose reshaping procedures. Rhinoplasty (nose reshaping) is performed to increase the aesthetic appearance of the nose, which is the most defining feature of the face.
  • Eyelid surgeries. Upper and lower blepharoplasties (eyelid surgeries) are performed to rejuvenate the eyes and take years off one's appearance. These surgeries can remove the bags commonly seen under the eye and excess skin along the eyelids.
  • Facelifts. A facelift involves tightening the muscles and tissues under the skin and removing excess skin to improve signs of aging. There are many different types of facelifts, and having a discussion with your surgeon can help identify the best procedure for you.
  • Liposuction procedures. Liposuction can help target problematic areas of fat accumulation, such as the hips, thighs, arms, and abdomen. These procedures can help improve the contour of the body.
  • Breast augmentation procedures. Enhancing the shape and size of the breast with or without implants is one of the most common procedures performed. These procedures include breast implants, breast lifts, and breast reductions.

The mommy makeover is currently one of the most commonly performed combination plastic surgery procedures. It consists of a combination of body contouring procedures targeted at improving the physical changes caused by pregnancy and breastfeeding. This can include breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, liposuction, circumferential abdominoplasty, tummy tuck, and a thigh or arm lift. 

There is no set component to the mommy makeover, and each procedure is customized to the patient's individual needs. This allows women to target multiple areas in a single procedure to maximize results with only one recovery period.

If you are considering a mommy makeover in Pittsburgh, consult with Dr. Simona Pautler to develop a customized plan to meet your needs.

Cosmetic breast surgeries are one of the most common procedures performed by plastic surgeons. Of these, breast augmentation with the use of implants or less commonly, fat transfers, is the most common procedure followed by breast lifts. The most common implants are saline-filled implants because if they were to rupture, the body can naturally reabsorb the saline. 

Breast augmentations are performed to increase the size of the breasts as well as improve the contour and shape.

Some common reasons women undergo breast augmentation are to: 

  • Change the appearance or asymmetry of their breasts
  • Account for a decrease in breast size after weight loss or pregnancy
  • Correct unevenness or issues after other breast surgeries
  • Improve confidence and self-esteem

Having a female plastic surgeon has distinct advantages and can provide an overall experience that is more comfortable. Female plastic surgeons have a firsthand understanding of the issues many female patients are experiencing and may be more compassionate and sensitive to the insecurities their patients experience.

If you’re looking for a talented board-certified female plastic surgeon in Pittsburgh, Dr. Simona Pautler is the perfect choice. She is a mother of four who understands the effects aging and pregnancy can have on a woman’s body. Dr. Pautler uses her expertise in surgery and love for visual art to provide custom treatment plans to provide results that are beautiful and natural-looking.

Choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon ensures that you are being cared for by a surgeon that has undergone extensive training in performing cosmetic procedures. In addition, they receive training on how to prevent and handle emergencies should they arise. During training, board-certified plastic surgeons develop their technical skills and aesthetic judgment that prepares them to perform successful and high-quality procedures for their patients.

Entrust your care to a board-certified plastic surgeon, and sleep easy knowing you are in great hands. If you are considering a cosmetic procedure, call the office at Simona Pautler, M.D., F.A.C.S. to set up an appointment and experience a higher level of care.
