Office is very busy. Was pleased that they worked me in to see Dr. Lester and were able to schedule surgery on a day that was convenient for me. Loved the staff, dr. and anesthetist. Plan to have additional procedures in the future.

Dr. Lester's medical knowledge and surgical skills are complimented by his innate artistic view of the human form. The results are natural and fluid versus artificial and forced. His affable personality was an added bonus. Dr. Lester, his office and surgical team, work in tandem to help provide excellent pre- to post operative care.

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover
I am four weeks post op of my Mommy Makeover including Breast Augmentation with silicone implants, Tummy Tuck with MR and Liposuction of the flanks. I love my results so far and can't wait to see the final result! I found Dr. Lester here on Real Self. I decided to schedule a consultation based upon his credentials, experience, reviews and before and after photos on both his website and Real Self. From our very first conversation, his staff has been welcoming and accommodating. In fact, as I got closer to surgery, I pretty much called or emailed every day and B was always polite, helpful and professional. As soon as I met Dr. Lester, I was immediately comfortable and at ease. He is laid back, personable and has a great sense of humor. He is very knowledgable and told me what I could realistically expect as result of each procedure. He listened to what I wanted and didn't try to push me into other procedures or larger implants. He sat and went through photos with me to get an idea of what I was looking for regarding my breast size. I booked my surgery that day! I immediately knew he was the right doctor for me. Going forward with a surgery of this magnitude is a huge, life altering decision. It was important to me that I connected with my surgeon, in addition to the fact that he was Board Certified in Plastic Surgery and was also a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. The day of surgery, surprisingly, I wasn't nervous at all. I felt so comfortable and at peace with my decision and Dr. Lester. I wanted this for so long! Anyway, the surgery center staff were simply fabulous! As was the anesthesiologist. They were all kind and caring ensuring I was comfortable every step of the way. I spent the night at the surgery center. I had gone back and forth on this decision because I thought I would feel more comfortable at home but I can honestly say that staying overnight was the best decision outside of choosing Dr. Lester. The nurses were beyond attentive. They kept my pain at a minimum. I had a nurse and a nurse aide. They came in together and made certain I was comfortable and that everything was fine. I had an IV and catheter which I feel helped in my healing process as I didn't have to get up to use the restroom which allowed my wounds to settle. The next morning, they went over necessary instructions with my husband. I cannot speak highly enough of this staff. I really feel they went above and beyond for me. The recovery itself is better than I anticipated. Don't get me wrong, it's painful the first week but especially my first day home. My husband got me up every two hours and had me walk for a few minutes. I took pain pills every four hours and had Valium every eight hours. I really feel that my quick recovery is due to the skill of Dr. Lester. I still have swelling in my lower stomach and flanks which can be expected but it's nothing extreme. I had literally no bruising despite having flank liposuction. My scars look amazing including my belly button. My belly button doesn't give away the fact that I had a tummy tuck like others I have seen. Right now, I could easily wear a bikini in public and I am only a month out. I viewed many before and after pictures and sometimes am quite shocked by the bruising and scabbing. It looks so painful! That wasn't the case for me which again, of course, is due to the expert skill of Dr. Lester. The bottom line.... Dr. Lester has charm, charisma, an expert eye and surgical skills that are second to none! His staff is welcoming, patient and caring and have been there for me every step of the way! The surgical center he utilizes also employs a staff of caring individuals, which to me, speaks volumes about his ethics and beliefs! I cannot recommend him enough! If you are considering Plastic Surgery in the Dallas area, at the very least, schedule a consultation with him! You won't regret it!

After doing 3 consultations with doctors known for doing the procedure in my area, I selected my doctor based on the fact that (i) he is a board certified plastic surgeon; and (ii) I felt like he was very honest about what areas would likely see the most improvement versus those where we were hoping for only around 50% improvement. Also, he was one of only 2 of the doctors I visited who identifed that some of the issues I had were more contouring or skin elasticity versus true cellulite. And one of the other doctors I visited happened to speak very highly of him as well. That doctor (who I also REALLY liked) did not feel like my case was "serious" enough for him to take, but said he highly recommended my doctor. So, all in all, I appreciated my doc's candor and experience and decided that he was my best choice.
