So Much More Than a Breast Lift - San Antonio, TX

Dr. Lawton Leads his staff with such precision, professionalism and most of all care. The care for his patients are clearly showed in his medical knowledge and in his work.he gives your body key nutrients to support the body's natural healing processes to help balance even the inflammatory responses your body will naturally have because of the soft tissue injury your body goes through with any surgery. he and his staff cares for each patient genuinely and gives them the tools and instructions they need to heal. And while there are risks with any surgery they explain to you very clearly all you need to know. The nurses and the anesthesiologists guide you every step of the way. Dr Gary P Lawton and his staff are truly blessed in what they do for their patients. I will be posting pictures and more of my story as I see the doctor

3 Kids Later This Body Needed Help! - San Antonio, TX

Doctor Lawton was referred to me by my mother. I had many consultations lined up with other doctors but Doctor Lawton was the most professional and most importantly concerned about the health and outcome of his patients. One thing I noticed he did that other doctors didn't and that was supplying you with vitamins weeks before your surgery. He is all about health and wellness! I felt that the other doctors I had consultations with were trying very hard to get me to add on more services. This was not the fact with Dr Lawton, he was very honest and truthfully advised me on which procedures he thought I neeeded and didn't need done. He and his staff are always dressed very professionally and treat you with respect. They take their jobs very seriously and I would 100% advise all my friends and family to use Dr Lawton. He has a great personality and I'm always excited to chat with him!

Dear Breast Book, This is my journey from 'A' cup to 'D' cup

Okay-- finally my one month updates! I have been through a Rollercoaster of emotions-- Back tracking to week one and two of my Breast augmentation, the implant sits very high, about 2 inches or less below my collar bone, so at first glance, I was emotionally distraught and upset, because in the early stages of the Breast augmentation procedure like in wks one and two, they look high and FLAT! Almost hiding... I was told numerous times to be patient. My doctor asked for patience. His nurse asked for patience. And each time I went home crying because I did not listen to them- I was so convinced this was the final result!! So devastated and confused and these are all normal feelings because i have read others stories and I did not feel alone, but you know it's just that initial shock of seeing them for the first time in the mirror and trying to figure out by yourself where the hell are the implants!!! HAHAHAHA :) When week 3 and 4 arrived....WELL was I WRONG!!! and my doctor and his nurse were so RIGHT!!! It was like I woke up about I would say the 20th day after the procedure and my babies were here!!! It is the most odd experience to go through this procedure, at least in my opinions! I can't describe the feelings-over the last several weeks-- even though the most amazing doctor held my hands and asked for patience I still can't figure out why I refused! I guess because what I was looking at in the mirror was hard for me to understand how they would, as he (my doctor) said 'drop/fluff' etc!! That morning I woke up and they were here!! They appeared at first round, red and sore-- and perfect size !! They do not compare to the size that they are now as to weeks 1 and 2. They are exactly the size I asked for and look exactly like the pictures I brought to my doctor as well!! With them sore and red I immediately started the massage advice my doctor gave me, I suppose each doctor will have their own preference, but with my doctor its a fairly simple excercise and just do it a few times a day, 2-3 min and the red, raw soreness diminishes! Each day that passes, I kick myself for feeling distraught, stressed and disappointed in weeks 1 and 2. I put myself through unnecessary stress-- And I should have supported my doctor and his advice %100!! Even though my doctor stood by my side and I read and reviewed hundreds of Breast augmentations stories on here- the weeks 1 & 2 were super scary, but just wanted to share this update so that when you're in early stages after the procedure, the results produce slowly and of course now I'm PATIENT!! Every day they are changing, they are softening and in my next update i would like to add some cool things I've found useful to use during the pain aspect and of course for massage, but everyone is different of course so I will share what worked for me and of course sizes in next update-- I would like to give a sincere apology to Dr.Lawton for not trusting his judgement in wks 1 and 2- he is so compassionate and even held my hands and asked for 'patience' as its a process, and I ignored him- I have never had such a procedure like this ever in my life & he still put up with my 'crybaby' face every visit !! He still stood by my side %100, assuring me, comforting me and knew the outcome, It was just such a confusing thing to see them in those first 2 weeks, that I regret not staying calm and patient- I felt almost like I was suppose to see immediate results, in which again, repeating, it's a process takes time to 'drop/fluff' So now, weeks 3 & 4, and every promise Dr.Lawton made to me are here :) all of his advice and his asking of patience is so true! And that is why I am sharing this moment as well, because it's very endearing to expect perfection on day one, and that's just not how it works - Dr.Lawton is wonderful- on end of week 4 when I went to see him, I made sure to apologize and give cookies and card and of course cried like a baby!! And I wish I could have hugged him for eternity because my results are perfect! He is perfection! He is passionate about his work, he is very precise and you will know that through consultation, he will share his knowledge on each type of implant and he is honest what is best for you!! Which I love!! He has never rushed me or made feel like 'just another patient', but he has such a sense of humor that he is so forgiving and compassionate too-- he made me feel like I was #1 every appointment! He is doctor of the universe in my book! Read my story and if you are feeling scared or unsure or are in early stages after Breast augmentation, rest assured your results will follow as long as Dr.Lawton was your doctor! Even if you are searching for a doctor, go to him ask questions.. He is patient! And this is the lesson he has taught me, that through a procedure, it's a process and to be....... Patient :) I highly recommend Dr.Lawton and his staff for breast augmentation procedure- when you venture in to his office you will see his many credentials and endless awards!! I want to thank him a million times over and his terrific nurses who work endlessly to assure your comforted through the entire process- the anesthesiologist he works with is also amazing and I want to thank him is well as I was terrified prior to going 'under'- and just for kicks, when Dr.Lawton was making his final marks on my chest, and reviewing my request of size I desired, and I was about to go to the operating room, he said 'are you ready for perfection?' And then gave me a high-five! :) and of course, I didn't reply but cried and cried until eventually I was asleep- I love Dr. Lawton! Thank you for reading my experience I hope this helps some one who me be fearful or going through the same mixed rollercoaster feelings I went through too!!! Thank you!! They are perfect! I feel like a completely different woman! SHOW LESS

Professional Single No Kids with Stubborn Fat - San Antonio, TX

As stated in some of the reviews, Dr. Lawton is a man of very few words. He lets his actions and results speak for themselves. You don't get a warm and fuzzy feeling from him at first. His mind is occupied with the data, details and assessment. His passion for being the best is his inner drive. His bedside manner finally came out after he hugged me at the end of our last consult a few days ago. He and his entire staff care about the the individual. If he should tell you that he 'can make you skinny', I think you can believe him. My hope and belief is in him. Will post again in a few weeks.
