5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Swelling at 4wks 3 Days Postop? - Santa Rosa, CA

I had my Fleur De Lis Tummy Tuck done May 2, 2014. I had a ton of extra sking from having twins and being over weight. I have noticed as time goes on my lower pubis area seems to be getting more laxed and seems fat and puffy. I know there is the swelling for many months, but it seems like this is just soft hanging tissue and I think I may need a revision. My PS is 5 hours away, so I am trying...

51 and Look 41- Santa Rosa, CA

I have been wanting a facelift/neck-lift for a couple years. I went to another " well advertised" PS for consult. Then one night while washing my face I remembered Dr. McAvoy.

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

I know that it takes 6-12 months to see the final results but already I'm happy. I'm always...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Removal

Ready to explant!

Hello ladies! I've been reading your stories for a very long time, and am ready to share mine. I had implants put in 05/2003. I was 18 years old, and had the mindset of just making them bigger. My Mom had implants, my Aunt has implants, so I thought I knew what I was getting myself into. Worst decision I've ever made for myself. Less than a year later I was diagnosed with Chronic Fibroadenoma...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Fantastic Surgeon - Santa Rosa, CA

Twelve years later, when an infection, unrelated to my past surgery arose, that could have severely affected not only the site of my prior surgery but my health and life in general... I called my surgeon, Dr. Mac as I refer to him, confident he would know how to take care of me and not miss something. I love my initial results still all these years later. I am astounded at the incredible...
