Dr. R did a PERFECT job on my breast augmentation! I am so happy with how they turned out. The whole process was better than I could have ever hoped for. Before the surgery, I was barely an A cup. Now, I wear a C cup and my breasts look natural, full, perky, etc. I get compliments all the time about how great they look in a swim suit. I would recommend him to anyone remotely interested in getting plastic surgery. The whole staff is so welcoming and sweet!

If you want a doctor who is enthusiastic about what he does, performs many breast augmentations, and shows you realistic outcomes of a variety of breast shapes, go to him. He's not a hand-holder - you have few post-op visits though quick answers to questions via email/phone - I think adding one post-op the day after would be handy and may reduce the number of tears! - but the results are fabulous.

Dr. R has given me one of the best gifts I've ever received. A true appreciation and love for my body. My research paid off and after meeting Dr. R, I knew he was the right surgeon. I felt truly comfortable with him. He's knowledgeable, funny, enthusiastic, patient, and really good at what he does. He has a very keen eye for balance and beauty and it shows. His work is truly remarkable. I would recommend Dr. R to any of my closest friends, which is why I'm recommending him to you on this public forum. He is a true talent, he's professional and he and his staff are worth every penny. I've never been able to say this before in my life, but I truly LOVE my body now and I have Dr. R to thank.

Dr. R and his staff are kind people, the facilities are very nice (including surgery center), and his prices are very reasonable considering the quality. Overall, I would say that if you want a tasteful breast augmentation experience, this is the doctor you want.

From the very first consultation, Dr. R and his staff put my husband and I at ease. Dr. R was never too busy for us -- he was always punctual, answered all of our questions, explained the results I could expect and gave input into my different options. I could not ask for more from a physician -- from the pre-op appointment all the way through our post surgery meetings, the experience has been top notch. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend Dr. R to anyone considering this surgery. I don't think I could have found a more skilled, qualified, or caring doctor. (Once you schedule your first consultation, you'll see what I'm talking about.) Thank you again Dr. R for getting me back where I want to be!

Dr. R is absolutely awesome. I went to him hating my chest. My breasts were (in my mind) severely deformed. He performed a lift and implants. I can tell enough people about my experience. I am 11 days post op and my results are absolutely amazing!!!

I met Dr. R when my almost 6-year-old son was injured in a bicycle accident. Dr. R was the plastic surgeon on-call that was called to repair his face. I was so impressed with Dr. R’s meticulous work and bedside manner that I knew he had to be my plastic surgeon as soon as I was finished having children. Two years later, I was finished nursing my third child and was ready for my “mommy makeover” from Dr. Reid; anyone who I knew I could trust with my child, I could trust to be my plastic surgeon. I had been a little nervous when considering the surgery and recovery time, but Dr. R’s wonderful staff talked in depth about the procedures and recovery with me over the phone before even coming in. They helped me feel completely comfortable. Dr. Reid has an impeccable bedside manner, which will put you further at ease. I couldn’t have been more comfortable with my decision to have surgery with him. I was kept very comfortable during my short recovery period, which was better than expected, and my results are phenomenal! I have been equally happy with all of my procedures! Dr. R is truly an artist, he takes his time with you, and wants you to be completely comfortable and happy with your results. I could not be happier in my choice for a plastic surgeon.

Dr. R was everything I was looking for in a surgeon. He made me feel completely comfortable with the procedure. I was also looking for a very specific shape and size after the surgery and he was able to match it perfectly! I could not be happier with my entire experience at Restora Austin.

He is sencere and knowledgable. I find it very easy to talk to him and not rushed what so ever when I have an appointment with him. His staff is also very friendly and personable.

It took me several years to come to a decision to get my breast augmentation. I met with several doctors, but once I met Dr. R, I was hooked. Dr. R had all 3 attributes I find important in a cosmetic surgeon – he is professional, meticulous, and a perfectionist. In addition, his skill of turning his work into an art was another reason I chose him. Just simply looking at the before and after photos, one can see that Dr. R is a true artist in the cosmetic surgery field. I was so pleased with his professionalism and that of his staff as well, that I recommended him to a few of my friends who have since gone to him for their cosmetic surgery needs. You are in great hands if you choose Dr. R for your cosmetic needs. Just upon meeting him, you’re not going to want anyone else.

Dr. R and his staff went beyond my expectations! They are all extremely friendly and caring. I am incredibly pleased with my results and I would absolutely return or recommend him to anyone!

When I first started this breast augmentation journey I was unsure and had anxiety issues. Which doctor to choose? Is this the right move? After extensive research all things pointed me to Dr. R. After visiting with Dr. R and his staff, I felt so relieved about the care I would be in. He & his staff explained everything about breast augmentation, I no longer had the anxiety and worry. Dr. R tells you straight up if you are a good candidate for this procedure. He tells you his thoughts on what would be good for your body frame, type. He is also a perfectionist in every way. During appointments before your surgery you get to try on the types of implants and take pictures to see realistic proportions. The before experience made me feel so much better about my decision. I'm 1 1/2 months after surgery and you wouldn't believe what a difference this has made in my life already! Self-confidence (check) No more slouching (check) Proud (check) Any questions you ever have you can email Dr. R or call the office at anytime. He and his staff are happy to answer them! I enjoyed this experience so much, I recommend him to anyone that wants or is curious about breast augmentation.

Dr. Reid and his staff are more than I could of asked for!! The whole experience from start to finish was amazing! His staff are warm and welcoming and make you feel very comfortable, and once you meet Dr. Reid you will realize why so many people trust him to deliver great results. I have been considering breast aug for several years now and researched several other doctors. Dr. Reid is very professional but easy going and from the moment I met him I knew he was the doctor for me. He is interested in YOUR goals for yourself not pushing a size or style. If you want a doctor that you can trust and receive excellent results then you absolutely need to schedule a consult with Dr. Reid!!

I couldn’t be happier with my experience with Dr. Reid and his team. I had done quite a bit a research on many plastic surgeons, including Dr. Reid, by the time I met him, but it only took minutes from meeting him to decide that he was the right surgeon for me. He is professional, yet very approachable. I felt comfortable with him instantly, and trusted him very quickly. He took the time to answer all my questions thoroughly. Perhaps most importantly, he listened intently when I expressed my expectations for the outcome. I didn’t want to go “too small” but at the same time, I wanted to get relief from my back and neck pain. Dr. Reid repeated my expectations on several occasions, including right before surgery. After the surgery, I was thrilled to see that my results were exactly what I had envisioned. In addition to my wonderful experience with Dr. Reid, I found his staff to be very attentive and friendly. During my initial research, I spoke with Mary, who was positive and encouraging, yet never pressured me in any way. At my pre-op visit, I had the pleasure of meeting Leslie, a nurse who went over the instructions for pre-op and post-op with me in detail. Her patience and reassurance helped me feel comfortable moving forward with the surgery. On the day of the surgery, the team treated me like I was their most important patient. I met several of the people who would be in the operating room, all of whom were positive and friendly. Dr. Reid came into my room with a big smile. We discussed my expectations once more and I felt very confident in both Dr. Reid and my decision to have the surgery. I would recommend Dr. Reid to anyone and everyone, including my closest friends and family.

I had visited other doctors before Dr. Reid but as soon as i went in for my initial consultation with him, I felt comfortable moving forward; I wasted no time scheduling my breast augmentation. I was extremely impressed with the care and sensitivity i was treated with by Dr. Reid throughout the entire process. Dr. Reid took the time to make sure I was completely comfortable, including allowing me to change my implant size and type THE DAY BEFORE my operation. The results are phenomenal and he has truly changed my life. I feel so incredibly confident and happy with my results. Also Dr. Reid and his nurses were able to give me helpful advice any time I needed it; I could always call Restora with my questions. I would highly recommend Dr. Reid for anyone considering having an operation!

The whole experience I had was great. The staff was very knowledgeable, and it is clear to me that Dr. Reid is a perfectionist from the initial impression. Everyone in the office made me feel comfortable with my decision to have a breast augmentation. I live in Houston and had already had a consult with several other doctors who said that I would have to have a breast lift and an augmentation to get the results I wanted. However, Dr. Reid completely explained that I had options and the advantages and disadvantages of having the breast lift or just the augmentation. He really listened to my goals. By the time I went for my pre-op appointment, I felt comfortable and confident with Dr. Reid and the plan we had determined. Long-story, short.. He did an amazing job. I love my result. Because of Dr. Reid, I am so happy when I look at my body. I am so thankful that I have the confidence back that I had lost after having two children. I truly believe that I would not have had the comfort to do this before I met Dr. Reid. BTW my husband couldn't be more thankful!

I can't say enough about Dr. Reid and the staff at Restora Austin. From the moment I walked into the office, until my visit 6 weeks post op, every encounter was positive and I was made to feel like I was the only patient in their care. The level of attentiveness and the time they spent to make sure all of my concerns were heard and my questions were answered was a huge factor in helping me make the decision to move forward with breast augmentation. Dr. Reid's friendly bedside manner made him very approachable and easy to entrust him with the task of improving my body. I was very worried about the surgery because I didn't want to look huge afterwards, but wanted a normal and natural breast size. I am beyond thrilled with my new look and feel like Dr. Reid has given me the breasts I dreamed of. He listened to my desires and made them my new reality. Every person who has seen me since the surgery is blown away by the natural look and size of my new breasts. That is exactly what I told Dr. Reid I wanted and that is what he gave me! It is SO important to go to a Dr. that listens and cares about why you want a certain look. I have heard too many times from friends that have had breast augmentation with other surgeons in Austin that they hate their end result because they feel the Dr. made them bigger than they desired and now they are self conscious for the opposite reason. Did I mention that I had NO bruising after the surgery? Dr. Reid is amazing! Go meet him and your search for a plastic surgeon will be over.

I fly in from NYC to see Dr. Reid! His skill and bedside manner are unparalleled. I've been going to him for Botox treatments for years and each visit begins with a thorough, personal consultation. His concern for my safety and satisfaction are top priority. He is professional yet completely approachable, it's a delight to visit his office. From scheduling an appointment to post treatment follow up - he and his staff leave no stone unturned. I've recommended Restora Austin to everyone I know - near and far!

My experience with Dr. Reid exceeded my expectation. They take care you, you are not just a patient your a person. It doesn't get any better than this.

I was in search of a great surgeon to do my breast lift and augmentation, so after doing tons of research I came across Dr. Reid in Austin and heard soo many great things. From the beginning everyone was really nice and incredibly informative and helpful. Dr. Reid has an awesome personality and I felt very comfortable with choosing him since he has an extensive medical background. If you want peace of mind contact Dr. Reid!!!

Dr. Dustin Reid is a skilled plastic surgeon who is worth spending the money to go with for breast augmentation. As I said earlier, I discovered his extensive background in trauma which reassured me that he not only knows how to perform breast surgery, but confident in knowing what to do if anything comes up along the way. He listens to what the patient wants and is very genuine about making them happy. I never felt like he was trying to push me in to anything, nor did I feel like he was faking his opinion to please my needs. I think he is very professional but very attentive with his bedside manner, which you don't always get with doctors. He answered all my emails as well, which were pretty lengthy with questions and concerns, and took the time to make me feel comfortable about going through with my surgery. I think my breast augmentation went perfect, involved zero complications thus far, minus being slightly allergic to either the pain meds or anesthesia, which was not a result of him at all, and reflects how good a surgeon he is with my entire healing process. The nurses were very quick to help me change my pain meds once I started realizing I was having an allergy, and I live out of town so they made a smooth transition with the pharmacy as well. They also were very helpful in explaining the post healing process. Everyone in the office is very positive and made me feel good about my choice with Restora.

I was super apprehensive at the first consultation with Dr. Reid. I was immediately made comfortable by his wonderful staff (Mary, Jamie and Brandy, specifically) and then even more so after meeting Dr. Reid. He has a very calming presence and I felt immediately safe in his hands. Best of all, he did a great job - I love my shape and size. He did not steer me wrong and I would absolutely recommend him.

I had my breasts done by Dr. Reid and he did an AMAZING job. The office and staff are all so helpful and always available to answer questions (which I didn't have many thanks to my skilled surgeon!). Surgery was so smooth, I had no bruising and looked great from day one. I'm thrilled with my results and am excited to see them as they progress. I absolutely recommend Dr. Reid!

Well so far he has been great! I am happy with my results even if I can't see them fully yet.

Dr.Reid is a wonderful surgeon! He is very professional, charismatic and generous. I chose him as my surgeon because he made me feel completely comfortable during my consultation. He tried his best to please me with the size and the outcome of what I desire in a very safe way. During my operation, he brought different sizes of silicones with him to make sure that I can get the biggest size I want without any complications :) He knows exactly what he's doing and thats what you want!!

Dr. Reid is AMAZING. From my first consultation to the day of my surgery I knew he was outstanding. His confidence is great, and just by that you can tell that he knows what he is doing. Him and his staff are warm, welcoming and extremely helpful.

Dr. Reid is fantastic. He has a highly trained staff and they put you at ease right away. They are caring and real. If you are like me and have visited numerous Plastic Surgeons, you know what I'm talking about. I felt, at many, that I had walked into a reality show with the puffed up lips and face faces. Nobody at Restora looks this way or acts this way. They are real, talented and caring. But, the real artist here is Dr. Reid. He immediately put me at ease and made me feel like he cared about what my concerns and wishes were. He was always up front and realistic with me but here is the thing that really sold me - he was excited about his work. He reminded me of an artist that cannot wait to start on a new project. Also as a side note - I came from out of town to have my surgery so I made sure I had good family and friends to help me for that first week. If you are unsure - just go visit Dr. Reid and the girls at Restora, they will put your mind at ease.

A friend of mine recommended him after she had her surgery, nothing but thumbs up. Dr Reid is the best, not to mention he has an awesome personality, he is funny , candid and HONEST! so exactly what I was looking for. I had my tummy tuck April 19th 2013, and I can say is the best decision ever and I am so glad I found him, he did an awesome job my stomach is to tight I cant even laugh but I don't care its perfect just like I wanted it to be, worth every penny! If you choose him you will not be disappointed. I can vouch for him bc he did my stomach and its great, I feel happy and glowing thanks to him and his wonderful staff, my RN was Rebecca and she is also great, very knowledgeable and with an awesome personality they took care of me every time I had a question or concern.

I began my breast augmentation research about 4 years ago, and spent hours pouring over before and after photos for every plastic surgeon in Austin. I have family members who have used other surgeons in town, but I was very specific about the look I wanted. Dr. Reid's patients seemed to have volume, but also the natural aesthetic, shape, and fall that I wanted. I went in for a consultation on Monday and had surgery the Thursday of the same week. His staff was very professional and made the process streamlined, seamless, and expedient. Walking into the office I felt as if I was stepping in to Z Gallerie, the plush surroundings really help to put you at ease and give the impression of a top notch, modern practice, that puts patients first. I had some debate about the size I wanted, and they were wonderful in listening to what end result I was looking for, guiding me in the right direction, and managing my expectations about the outcome along the way. I went from a 32B to 32DD; and LOVE the results. My boobs are a work of art; Dr. Reid is a genius! I am truly grateful to him and his staff and would recommend him to anyone in Texas who was contemplating a breast augmentation.

I can't say enough great things about Dr. Reid and his incredible staff. Throughout the entire process, Dr. Reid took time to listen to my questions, concerns, and goals for the procedure. And I couldn't be happier with the results. Dr. Reid helped me achieve exactly what I was looking for! Also, I would feel remiss without mentioning the caring and attentive nature of all of Dr. Reid's staff. They were so kind and encouraging during the entire process. I know it sounds cheesy, but I really looked forward to calling the office if I had a question or coming in for my pre/post-op appointments because Dr. Reid and his whole staff are so welcoming and accommodating. I highly recommend Dr. Reid!
