The choice to have plastic surgery was made very easy after my consult with Dr. Fryer. He was very professional and informative toward myself AND my husband. He made him feel like we were both part of the decision. I would do it again in a heartbeat!

If I could rate him 10 stars I would. I had several friends use him and [they all] love his work, but I still made a couple of other consultations to help me make my decision. After visiting with Dr. Fryer, I knew my decision was made. He was thorough and patient as he explained what I needed, why I needed it, and what exactly he was going to do to fix it. The surgery went smoothly and has been a breeze. I couldn’t have dreamed for better results. I am so grateful for Dr. Fryer!! You can TRUST him!!

Certified Plastic Surgeon
Dr. Fryer is Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. This is the only board certification recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties for cosmetic and plastic surgery. He graduated from the University of Utah with high honors and then completed his medical school training at the same institution. He is a fully trained general surgeon through the University of Arizona. He returned to the University of Utah for a plastic surgery residency and was trained in all aspects of cosmetic and plastic surgery. He was recruited to remain at the University of Utah as an Assistant Professor of Plastic Surgery to help train and instruct cosmetic and plastic surgery residents.
During his tenure at the University of Utah he cared for some of the most difficult and challenging plastic surgery cases in the intermountain west. Plastic surgeons from the surrounding area frequently transferred patients to Dr. Fryer for his expert surgical skills and clinical care. He was recognized each year by the hospital administration as one of the University’s best physicians based on patient satisfaction surveys. In 2008 he transitioned to a private plastic surgery clinic and still maintains an association with the University of Utah as an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Plastic Surgery.
Dr. Fryer lives with his family in Cottonwood Heights, Utah, near the mountains and resorts of Alta and Brighton that he knows and loves. He loves spending time outdoors. Whether it be in the mountains of the Salt Lake Valley or Park City, the west desert between Toole and Wendover, the cliffs and crags near Salt Lake City and Sandy, or the wild and beautiful canyons of the national parks near St. George, Moab, Blanding, or Cedar City, Dr. Fryer enjoys exploring the hidden treasures that Utah’s best destinations have to offer. Backpacking, hiking, rock climbing, canyoneering, fly fishing, skiing, and exploring are just a few of the outdoor activities that he enjoys.
The most critical decision that a patient makes is selecting the cosmetic and plastic surgeon to perform their surgery and care for them. This can be a very confusing process because millions of advertising dollars are spent trying to catch your attention and may not always provide correct or full information. In order to help patients negotiate this confusing, and potentially risky process, Dr. Fryer has written planners filled with helpful information and tips for women who are specifically researching breast augmentation, lifts, and tummy tuck (when combined together this procedure is sometimes called a mommy makeover).
These planners will help you research the qualifications of doctors to ensure that you select a surgeon that is a board certified plastic surgeon and not just a doctor with a lot of titles that sound legitimate but are not recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties.
Dr. Fryer’s breast augmentation planner was by far the most helpful resource I found on the internet. It covered information that I never would have thought to ask and never saw anywhere else. This is a ‘must read’ for anyone thinking about augmentation!

Being a physician myself, I knew a lot about what to expect and what are the reasonable expectations that I could have. Dr. Fryer …. took the time to explain everything to me. I was very pleased with his manner and knowledge. Also all the staff and nurses in the office are extremely professional and helpful. My day of surgery went very smooth and I was surprised to get a result equivalent to a lift and augmentation despite only having a lift. He is a true artist, and I am extremely happy with the result and I believe it is the best result I have ever seen compared to all my friends or any pictures I have seen online. I would highly recommend Dr. Fryer!

Doctor Fryer has been recognized throughout his career as a plastic surgeon for excellence in patient care and for the best service. He has been awarded both the “patients’ choice award” and “compassionate doctor recognition” almost ten years in a row by a national organization. He has been awarded “top 10 doctor” for Utah based on patients’ ratings and feedback. RealSelf recognized Dr. Fryer as a “top doctor” & “top contributor” almost ten years in a row and he is the only plastic surgeon in Utah that has been presented the RealSelf 100, RealSelf 500, and RealSelf Hall of Fame awards for his extensive contributions toward patient education and for excellent patient outcomes and patient satisfaction.
It is satisfied patients and not the many awards and honors that he has received that are the mainstay of Dr. Fryer’s popularity and have helped him create one of the busiest cosmetic surgery practices in Utah. The best indications of his skill and expertise are the hundreds of patient testimonials online regarding their cosmetic surgery experience. These patient reviews and stories resulted in RateMDs ranking Dr. Fryer as the most highly and best rated plastic surgeon in Utah. Trust the awards and honors, trust the patient reviews, but more than anything else, trust your instincts and feelings that you want to have the best plastic surgeon in Utah to be your doctor. There are some things in life when compromise is unwise, and your only option should be the best option; plastic surgery is one of those choices when only the best option should be considered.
Dr. Fryer was amazing! He was so much more knowledgeable and meticulous about his work than any of the other doctors I visited for consultations. There were so many small pieces of information that he was able to provide that made me feel comfortable and completely taken care of. The process before, during and after the procedure was amazing and totally painless thanks to Dr. Fryer and his amazing team!
