Dr. Meade is a awesome!!! He is very personal, friendly, and honest about what he can do to enhance your body and make it better for you. He explains everything he envisions will take place with your body before surgery. All of the above made it easier for me to allow him to perfrom sugery on me and want to refer him to you.

Dr. M was amazing! He personally responded to my emails prior to even seeing me or knowing whether I was serious about the procedure or not and that says a lot. He explained everything in detail was able to answer any ?'s or concerns I had. He was very honest and didn't set unrealistic goals. His office staff is incredibly sweet, supportive and helpful!

He was very caring, explained everything to me in detail. Took the time to answer all my questions. After surgery was over he went to my husband and showed him pictures after he had finished with one buttock to show him the difference from the one he had not done yet and showed him pics of all the cannulas he had used and his office staff is also very nice and friendly.

Dr. Meade is an exceptional surgeon. Dr. Meade is as compassionate as he is professionally meticulous. He is kind yet thorough, prompt, precise, and completely focused on the BEST RESULT for his patient/client. I cannot convey enough positive attributes regarding Dr. Meade's abilities as a plastic surgeon. There are bad, mediocre, good and then GREAT Plastic Surgeons like Dr. Meade. I was literally recommended to Dr. Meade from other Doctors. Not to mention that his entire office staff is courteous, caring, professional...completely go out of there way to help and make you feel as comfortable as possible. Great result. Great experience. Highly recommend.

Looking for high quality care and artistic ability led me to Dr. Meade. There are so many doctors to choose from in the Dallas area and being a nurse, I have to say that I believe Dr. Meade is the best. He has an uncanny ability to make everything look so natural. I trusted him so much that I told him, “I don’t care what you do, as long as you make it look right.” His staff is absolutely wonderful. Janie, in the front office, is so personable and always a joy to speak with. Becky, who handles OR scheduling and paperwork, covered every detail and worked a miracle with the OR schedule so that I could return to work by a certain date. Chris, his nurse, was always readily available for any question and very knowledgeable. The OR staff, anesthesiologist, and the facility itself was great and I can’t thank them enough. Dr. Meade’s ability to do great work and his awesome support staff exceeded my highest expectations!

Dr M & staff are totally amazing!!! He will give you exactly what you want and tell you his true opinions. I am so pleased to choose him as my doctor and have faith that everything will be the way I want them to be. I would recommend Dr M to anyone because he is one of the few doctors that I have experienced that is very honest and will not make you feel comfortable on your decisions.

By getting rid of my "Mommy Tummy" I continue to walk tall and proud. I go to the gym now and blend right in even when working out next to girls half my age :). Although, not wanting to be a teenager again I have a new motto in life, "be the best I can at my age" and since my surgery I am so very dedicated to keeping that good!

Wow, where do I start…. I guess first thing is “Thank you” for giving me my self confidence back. It’s been three years since my tummy tuck & breast lift and I still wake up every morning amazed at how pleased I am with your work. So… Moving forward three years later, I knew that the surgery you performed has given me the boost I needed to realized that I can still have an overall younger, healthy looking body even at 43 years old.

After the shock of finding out I had breast cancer, I started praying that God would help me find the right doctor to help me thru a difficult time. I know without a doubt that He put Dr. Meade and his staff in my life. I knew the first day I met with him, that he would be the doctor I chose. I can never say enough about him. His wisdom helped me make choices that were very hard and he was so patient and understanding with me.

At the age of 46, I was not happy with a lot of changes my body was going through. I had a friend who had just had a tummy tuck and breast lift who was very pleased with her results and highly recommended her surgeon, Dr. Ricardo Meade. I called and set up a consult with Dr. Meade and he not only made me feel comfortable, he made me fell like his goal was not to please himself, but to make sure the outcome pleased me. I must also say I did go for a second opinion only to find there was no comparison. I did call to set up a surgery appointment with Dr. Meade and still today have no regrets. One of my first experiences after surgery I will never forget is my husband and I were at a high school football game one Friday night and my husband put his arm around me. I noticed he was rubbing my ribs below my breasts and commented, "It's been a long time since I felt ribs there, I generally use to hit your breast instead". My request to Dr. Meade was to put my breasts back on my chest where they belong and get them off my stomach and that he did. It has been 6 months now since my surgery and i can't tell you the difference I see when I look in the mirror. I have no regrets at all. The last thing I would want to tell anyone this is looking for a surgeon, "You will not be disappointed if you make your appointment with Dr. Ricardo Meade".

The tummy tuck was the best thing I have done for myself in years. My only regret is that I did not do it earlier. After losing my weight, I tried everything to get rid of the unwanted fat(skin). If only I had a penny for all the sit ups that I did for the last year, I would be a rich lady. I had no idea you could remove 14 pounds from my stomach. Thank you so much!!

Dr. Meade is a miracle worker! My scars and overall look of my breasts from a previous Dr. are so much better. The day of surgery was 100% more professional. He and his staff are the best! They always made me feel special and informed me about my procedures in detail. I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Meade.

Dr. Meade did an amazing job! I couldn't be more pleased with my reduction. Not only has the pain in my neck disappeared, my clothes fit better, my appearance is so much more pleasing to myself. I've received so many compliments! Thank you so much for your continued personal, invested care of your patients. It's so refreshing to receive a new standard of care in a very traditional field such as medicine.

My life has changed since my face lift. I look years and years younger and feel great! It is amazing how it's changed my face. I no longer look tired. Nothing is sagging either. :) I thought about waiting to have the surgery since I am only in my 50's but I wanted to look great today and for the next 10 years or so. Why wait?! Today is NOW!!

I had been wanting to do a tummy tuck for a long time but didn't know which doctor to go to. A friend recommended Dr Meade and I felt very comfortable when I met with him. He spent a lot of time explaining the procedure to me and his staff was so nice...it was a very pleasant experience from the first consult to my post-op visits. I am so happy and couldn't ask for better results....his work is AWESOME! I have other procedures that I want him to do and have referred many of my friends to him.

I just wanted everyone to know how pleased I am with my "fillers". I had very little swelling and bruising and my face looks fabulous! I sincerely appreciate Dr Meade's thinking of me and allowing me to benefit from this procedure. He and his staff are absolutely THE BEST and I am so grateful for our relationships. I wish you all the very best!
