Dr. Johnston, is just amazing and he walked me through everything. Staff is equally amazing. Top doctor in his field. Love love love him.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift

55 Year Old Female. Lift Needed After Implants Had Been Removed a Year Earlier - Lake Mary, FL

Not only is he an excellent physician, he is just a nice guy. He has the patience of a saint. He really will take the time to listen to your concerns & address them. His wife who is a nurse & his assistant, is amazing too. She is a very gentle & caring person. I am so happy that I found this practice. God is good.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty Review - Lake Mary, FL

I feel that he is a person that I trust and I can call a friend.

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

TOTALLY Satisfied With Doctor, Staff, and Procedure - Lake Mary, FL

No problems at all. Dr. Johnston displays the high level of integrity that we USED to see in doctors - but seldom see any longer. From the first visit - through the Surgery - I was treated professionally. Dr. Johnston and his staff totally exceeded my expectations. I sustained a several traumatic brain injury years ago - and as a result need things explained thoroughly to me. I ask a lot of questions and can be overwhelming. Dr. Johnston handled me in just the manner I required.

5 out of 5 stars Male Breast Reduction

Best Dr Ever! - Orlando, FL

One of the nicest people I have ever met. The staff is wonderful and office is remarkably clean and gorgeous. Dr. Johnston honestly changed my life, my surgery went great and I couldn't be happier with my results. The Dr. is sincere, direct, and honest. He was very direct and explained everything to me about my surgery and encouraged me to ask any questions whenever. The hospital is a little...

5 out of 5 stars Neck Lift

I'm Glad I Did It - Lake Mary, FL

Dr. Johnston and staff provided a great experience from beginning to end. Everyone in the office was gracious, professional, and willing to go above and beyond to make me feel comfortable, answer my questions, and all in all help me to feel extremely happy that I made the decision to have this surgery.

5 out of 5 stars Fractional Laser

Fractional Laser - Lake Mary, FL

I've never wanted a face lift. I never wanted to go through pain, the weeks of recovery, the worry about if I would look inappropriate for my age. But I didn't like the person I was seeing in the mirror. The lines, folds, my neck... Then I saw my friend at the store. I hadn't seen her in some time and she looked fabulous. I wanted that look too. And I got it from Dr. Johnston. The Fractional Laser Facial Rejuvenation is the absolute best thing! I look just like me, only easily 10 years younger.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

TT & Hysterectomy; Preop labs tomorrow. Wish me luck the last time we had to cxl surgery!!!!

I'm a 42 y/o mother of 3 who has been wanting a TT for quite some time. After the decision to undergo a hysterectomy last month, I discussed the desire to also have a TT since I was going under the knife. My GYN recommended a PS and I researched a few on my own. I decided on Dr. Johnston due to his credentials, experience, references, friendliness, honesty, mannerism, and office staff....

Mommy Makeover - Orlando, FL

The clock is ticking... I have been unhappy with my body for the past 16years. I finally decided it was time to go in and have a tummy tuck done along with some lipo of my thighs and back area. Although I visited a few surgeons years ago I didnt actually take the plunge till now and my BIG day is coming up Monday, 9th. I am terrified and a nervous wreck!!! So many things going through my head...

5 out of 5 stars ThermiVa

Totally Rejuvenated Lady Parts ! - Lake Mary, FL

I have seen Dr. Dean Johnston for ThermiVa and a number of other procedures over the years. His office staff are the utmost in professionalism, and Dr. Johnston quickly becomes more of a trusted friend and confidante than a doctor. I have met a lot of plastic surgeons over the years, and Dr. Johnston stands out as THE most caring, truthful, understanding and accomplished of them all. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Johnston with an A++ rating and have done so to my closest friends who have had him perform their procedures, and they agree. It's such a wonderful feeling to know you have trusted your health and hopes in the hands of such a gifted and talented surgeon. Dr. Johnston answers all of my questions (and I always have a LOT), has a phenomenal bedside manner (rare in the world of plastic surgeons), has impeccable after-care and follow-up and a first-class, caring office staff. Really the best of the best, hands down.
