Is Dr. Gary Horndeski for real

Hi, I am new to this forum and this is my first post. I have a breast lift with silicone implants and a tummy tuck scheduled for late in March but I don't like the anchor scar that my Surgeon says is needed. I am very saggy after having lost nearly 100 lbs.  I talked on the phone with Dr. Gary Horndeski in Houston TX. He tells me that he can do the procedure without leaving any scars other than around the nipple (and of course the tummy tuck scar). His work seems great and he has very high reviews on this site (56 five star reviews) but he almost seems too good to be true.  So I would really like to know if anyone has any real recent experience with him and if you would be willing to email me or talk to me about it.   Thanks, K

Check out my pics. NO other PS does this technique. Horndeski invented it, is triple board certified, and also was an engineer before medical school. That wowed me having been a physican recruiter in my past and not unfamiliar with plastic surgery. Horndeski either uses breast tissue or your skin (He showed me the photos and I thought he said skin but I read tissue) so he creates a living internal push up bra that is never absorbed but also relocates the migrated breast tissue that looks like "arm fat" etc back to your breast so you can go up a size or two with no implant (or three sizes with a 185cc implant and be more sculpted). I'm proof. It actually lasts far longer than a regular breast lift, He guaranteed it for me. I ask a bazillion questions by nature. I cant tell you how happy I am!! ( I have NO affiliation with him, his staff, etc...I am however now a raving fan. He changed my life via how I feel about myself. So worth what my hubby paid as a gift!)

A local PS also debunked the idea of internal suturing, saying he's seen patients who have had it done and doesn't think it offers any benefit for the cost. Maybe so. But logically it makes sense to me to stitch up that internal tissue as well as correct the external skin. The alternative is having loose internal tissue, which would exert pressure on the tightened skin. It seems like it would make it fail more quickly. I could be wrong but that's what logic told me and so I went with Horndeski. I'm pretty pleased with my results.

The PS is wrong about his assumption and I'm glad you chose to go for it with Dr H. Other surgeons do not know the technique used only the idea. You're breast is no longer being supported by vulnerable skin, which will stretch over time again. This technique won't allow that. My breasts are 4 weeks post op and although i was hoping for an inch higher after the swelling went down I continue to look at my before pictures and realize that extra inch is silly! GNVBIKER, not sure when you're scheduled but you will love the results!

Do not listen to what newnose33 is saying. Dr H has been doing this procedure for 12 years. No where can you find any negative information. Don't you think if what she is saying is the truth you would find it. He certainly wouldn't be one of the 10% of doctors invited to be on this site. Dr. H's procedure is not available for other doctors to do yet ecause he has chosen not to train other doctors yet. He is waiting on a patten as well. I just had my surgery 3 days ago. Albeit a little sore, I feel great. I have no scarring whatsoever. If there is documentation out there that proves what you are saying then show us. He said/she said is by no means an accurate review. Please don't let a comment so far out of the box effect your decision. He has these reviews for the past 12 years for a reason!

Feel free to check out my review. Best decision I made for my boobs ever!

I just had my procedure and the truth is they really do seem to go that extra mile to make sure you are comfortable with the procedure pre-op & post-op. My issues with post-op have to do with my body retaining fluids and drainage. As for how my beast look...too soon to really say at this time. I did post pics under my review. I know there is swelling and bruising at this moment in the breast and areolas, I just had my drains removed @ 3 pm today. This is my 6th day post-op, I will continue to post updates.

March is knockin at your door, have you done a skype consultation with Dr. Horndeski? This may give you some insight as to your expectations and his ideas of what can work for you. I sent pics then they arranged for us to do a live video call. I was able to show him my issue and move my breast around for him to see them. Just be comfortable with whomever you choose.

Yes, I did a skype consltation but my internet connection kept having problem so it would up being a phone conversation. Dr. Horndeski seemed so nice and like he had all the time in the world to talk to me. I am so close to going for it, just this nagging fear in the back of my mind about why everyone doesn't do what Dr. H does. It seems like great surgical procedures get quickly copied by everyone in the business. I wonder why this one hasn't been.

Asked my doc about him during my consult yesterday. There's a reason why his technique hasn't caught on. If it was really that great, don't you think every surgeon would do it? My doc said the breast falls apart after the years and he has corrected work done by him.

Really? Can you please inbox me? I don't want to have to deal with two breast surgeries. Can I speak to your doctor? I have my surgery on 5/30 and I love his results but scared to death.

ColoredRain - please trust all of the posts you are reading about the success of this surgery by Dr. H I have seen NO negative reviews except for the one above. You will love the results and you will love NOT having those ugly scars. He has not been successfully doing these surgeries for 12 years if what she says is true. Those who's "breasts are falling apart" as she states above would be on this site in a second posting that information. Go with Dr. H, you will not regret it.

Newnose, as a former physician recruiter I worked with a heart doctor who developed a stint technique no one else was doing; they weren't trained how. i have seen other docs (one in FL) try to copy Hornedeski but they don't know how to do the inner straps. He is a triple board certified doc who also has an engineering degree. I don't know of any other doc with that qualification. It's good marketing for other docs to say "wouldn't everyone be doing it?" but if you saw Dr. H's packed waiting room you'd know they would if they could. He does not teach the technique to other doctors. During my surgery he allowed a doc in training to view part of the procedure but not all of it. If he is smart, he won't teach everyone else what he developed: that would be like Coca Cola and Kentucky Fried Chicken giving out their secret recipes because people said "If it's so good, wouldn't everyone else be making it taste like that?" LOL

the other doctors put down his procedure because they know when word gets around, no one will want the old procedure done anymore, and they don't know how to perform the procedure so they act like it doesn't work. Dont trust what doctors say to you, trust what their patients and their photos say to you. This guys postop photos are phenomenal. Very exciting and innovative new medical procedures! YAY!
