5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

The Best Thing I've Ever Done for Myself!

Find a Dr. that is board certified & that is also an MD. It is also very important that you are comfortable & confident with the Dr that you choose. Shop around for the right one. Dr. P has a very professional & all around great "bedside manner!" He has answered all my questions & just a very comfortable Dr to talk to. He is confident, professional & personable all at the same time. I highly recommend Dr. P! Great staff as well!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

26yrs. 5'2. 160lb. 34J down to hopefully 34C/D!!

So ever since I was in high school I've had larger than average breasts for my age. This was tolerable (albeit annoying when it came to gym class or buying bras) until I hit 21 and my breasts grew again, and with vigor. I never thought about having surgery until one day I put on one of my well fitting bras and it didn't fit. My breasts overflowed from their containers and it made me so upset...

Reconstruction - Athens, GA

Parker Plastic Surgery Center offered me much more than a visual cosmetic solution, when I had reconstruction surgery, due to a bi-lateral mastectomy. My General Surgeon prepared me for the visual transformation of my body, by offering me a list of cosmetic surgeons in the area. Regretfully, the Alphabet dose not start with the letter P for Parker! Dr. Parker was much more than a visual...

Please Find a Different Physicisan - Watkinsville, GA

Dr. Parker is quite possibly the worst physician that I have ever had the misfortune of meeting.. If you have a desire for plastic surgery, I beg you to please use another plastic surgeon. If the surgery doesn't go as planned or if there are ANY complications afterwards, you may as well start seeking out a true physician. Dr. Parker is incompetent. I honestly believe that without God and the...

36 Wanted Fuller Lips - Athens, GA

I have ALWAYS wanted lip injections so I finally decided to go for it. I saw Dr. Parker in Athens, GA. After a quick consultation, we went back to the procedure room and got started. I wasn't given numbing cream, (didn't think to ask for it), and OUCH! It HURT! It only took about 10 minutes total. I LOVE the results and am going back again for more. I only got 1 syringe to be sure it wasn't...

30 Years Old 3 Kids. Athens, GA

I'm officially six days away from surgery! This site has helped me in terms of what to expect before and after even though I'm experiencing so many different emotions right now. I can't help but think of the risks involved, the money spent and final results not being what I expected. My husband has been super supportive and is the reason why I'm posting on here instead of stalking like I've...

Brachioplasty Gone Wrong - Athens, GA

Terrible mistake picking this physician. I have had nothing but problems from day one. Terrible scaring, uneven liposuction, extensive nerve damage to left arm, "dog ear" scarring. I suffer from pain every single day. My liposuction is completely uneven and looks terrible. A lot of sagging toward my underarms (some sagging naturally occurs but not this much). Money wasted and botched!

Surgery Gave Back What C-section Surgery Had Taken Away! - Watkinsville, GA

Dr. Parker is very down-to-earth. He has a friendly, easy-going bedside manner. He was very discreet and offered me the utmost respect. At a time when I was feeling nervous & embarrassed to show my trouble areas, Dr. Parker was very discreet, made me feel comfortable, and not exposed in the least. I left my consultation knowing I had come to the right place!

430cc Ultra High Profile, No Kids, 20 Years Old, 120lbs, and 5'7" - Athens, GA

I have been wanting a BA for years now but wanted to wait till I was older and didn't need a cosigner. I finally made a consultation for fun really but ended actually going through with it and I couldn't have been happier! I started out with wanting 400cc and two days before surgery changed it to 430cc cause I would rather spend that kind of money and them be too big than wish I would have...

49 Years Old, Three Kids, Time for Me - Athens, Ga

I don't know how I have been researching having a TT for two years and haven't stumbled on this site. I am having mine done on this Thurday, April 27th. Both excited and nervous. I've never been under anesthesia before so that is really freaking me out. I have three wonderful children...26, 23 and 22. I have given them my whole life and love them more than life but now I feel it is time...
