“My surgery with Dr. Bortnick has changed my life for the better! The decision to have elective surgery was not an easy one for me. I was very scared and nervous, but also excited about the possible results. I have not been disappointed! For years I struggled with poor self image. Since my surgery, I feel so much more confident, happy, and healthy, and have a renewed passion for life! Prior to surgery, I did my homework and shopped around. I couldn’t be more pleased with my choice. The care I have received before, during, and after my procedures has always been excellent. From my original consultation through follow up visits, Dr. Bortnick, his nursing and office staffs have always been so supportive, helpful, and made me feel at ease. I completely trust Dr. Bortnick’s abilities and highly recommend him for any procedure someone might be considering.”

“Thank you for taking a chance on me. For 26 years doctors were too nervous to give me a diagnosis, a treatment, a cure, or a second look. Your talent and determination is unmatched. I can’t explain how refreshing it is to buy shirts which are the proper size and feel comfortable on both arms equally. You are an answer to prayer.”

“I am a 56 year-old woman who consulted with Dr. Bortnick about facial cosmetic surgery. Up until nearly 4 years ago, I would not have considered elective surgery such as this, but in January, 2010, I had an acoustic neuroma (tumor in my skull, pressing on my brain) removed and as a result, the nerves and muscles on the left side of my face did not return to normal, leaving my face sagging a great deal on that side. Because my job requires me to meet frequently with people in the community, sometimes giving presentations on behalf of my agency, I decided to get a consultation with Dr. Bortnick in order to explore my options. Dr. Bortnick spent a great deal of time consulting with me and was extremely thorough in his explanation of the surgical process, healing time and potential side-effects. He was especially careful regarding his recommendations because I have a number of medical issues and take a variety of medications that could have compromised my overall health.”

“I met with Dr. Bortnick for breast augmentation after a friend’s referral, and visited a few other doctors in KC before making my decision. Dr. Bortnick was very impressive and I’m happy I chose him. He was very patient and met with me on several occasions, as I was very nervous about the procedure, and every time he took time to listen to my concerns and make me comfortable. Dr. Bortnick does an excellent job and gives a very natural look. I would suggest to anyone seeking plastic surgery to trust his recommendation, he listens to what you are wanting and is right on judgement. I am so grateful for his care and his staff as they were all very understanding, caring and patient throughout the entire process.”

“Dr. Bortnick consulted with all of my medical specialists to make sure that the surgery and his care of me would be of the highest quality and have the greatest chance for success with the fewest risks. I had the surgery in October 2013; it included: face-lift, brow lift, upper eyelid lift and neck-lift. Yes, I was swollen and a bit bruised, but I could see the difference soon after surgery. In fact, I was out in public shopping and eating out for lunch two days later! I went back to work less than 1 ½ weeks afterward and felt great. Dr. Bortnick and his staff have provided thorough follow-up with me; and, by the way, the nurses and staff are terrific too.

“I am very pleased with the results and am so happy that I decided to have this surgery. Let’s be clear, I do not look like a “young girl”; but that was not the goal for me. I am still a 56 year-old woman, but now I look like a healthier 56 year-old woman – who sometimes, still has to look in the mirror to make sure that her new and healthier reflection there is real – and always – it is!”

“Many qualities led me to choose Dr. Dan Bortnick as my plastic surgeon. Not only does he have excellent credentials with an outstanding reputation, Dr. Bortnick was genuinely concerned with my personal goals and helping me to achieve them. Dr. Bortnick and his staff were with me every step of the process, patiently and thoroughly guiding me, and I am extremely satisfied with the outcome of my surgery.”

Every middle-aged woman who has previously had children should invest in body sculpting. Dr. Bortnick managed to return my waistline to its pre-pregnancy state. My belly button looks like it did pre-children! Dr. Bortnick is a genius and I highly recommend him. I can wear a bikini again!”

“I am a female that has wanted to have breast reduction for many years, due to ongoing back pain despite regular chiropractic appointments, rashes under the breasts, inability to be fitted properly for a bra, my inability to find properly fitting clothing and my unhappiness with my personal appearance. I finally pursued these thoughts and came to Dr. Bortnick for a consult.

“What an awesome doctor with awesome bedside manner. During my initial consult, Dr. Bortnick sat down with me and explained all the risks and benefits of this operation and answered all my questions/concerns. I knew after consulting with Dr. Bortnick that I would move forward with this decision to have this surgery if my health insurance would cover most of the expense. The office help did an awesome job. Kudos to Christina and Dawn for doing awesome through my entire care from beginning to end. Having this surgery was the best decision I made! I have never been happier about my physical appearance, now wearing shirts and tops I wouldn’t have worn prior to surgery, and the “art” work of Dr. Bortnick is magnificent! If I were to recommend a plastic surgeon, Dr. Dan Bortnick would be the name I would give anyone that asks that question. I have had so many compliments on my physical appearance since I had my surgery. Thank you Dr. Bortnick and all the staff involved!”

K., age 38


“I went to Dr. Bortnick after several referrals from my friends who had gone to him before. I, however wanted to do my due diligence and I scheduled two other consults around Kansas City with other surgeons. After meeting with Dr. Bortnick, there was no question who I would choose. Dr. Bortnick made an immediate impression on me. He listened to what I wanted as well as my concerns. He tailored exactly what I needed for my body type. His attention to detail, and striving for the overall best results are unparalleled here in Kansas City. His nurse Dawn was equally involved and important throughout my consult and the time up to my surgery, as well as many weeks and months post op. Any time i had questions she was always available. I am extremely happy with my results and would recommend Dr. Bortnick to anyone who wants superior cosmetic results! He is the best!”

“Thank you for the wonderful care you’ve given me this past year. I really appreciated your kindness and generosity with your services. You put me at ease at each procedure with your calm and caring manner. In my eyes, you are an extraordinary and amazing surgeon. I’m grateful to look in the mirror each morning and see a fresh, younger version of me. If you every need a referral, please use my name. I would be happy to tout your praises. I feel blessed to be your patient!”

“I would like to express my gratitude to Dr. Bortnick and staff for the wonderful care I received during my almost year long treatment. Having Dr. Bortnick as a surgeon was the best decision I could have made. He was able to give me complete confidence with my decisions that were sometimes not easy. Doing a double mastectomy was difficult, but armed with the extensive knowledge given me during each step of my treatment, I had complete confidence in my outcome. I have fully recovered and my surgery looks amazing. Went back to my cancer doctor and also my primary doctor and they were very impressed with my results. Words just cannot express my gratitude. Anyone considering having cosmetic surgery or any reconstruction should definitely have a consultation with Dr. Bortnick before making any decision. Sorry I can’t send pictures because I look FANTASTIC.”
