5 out of 5 stars Body Lift


He aligns with a boutique style hospital for surgery outside the area that is customer services focused and helps ensure discretion and privacy. (It's about 1.5 hours from Des Moines). Dr. Franks has a very friendly, professional and timely team and I can not say enough good things about his bedside manner. I felt like I was their only patient. They never rushed through any of our appointments, answered ALL my questions and did house calls after surgery where he answered all of my families concerns. I ABSOLUTELY know you get what you pay for and from the moment I stepped inside Dr. Franks office, (who had come highly recommended from a very picky hard to please and affluent friend) he's the doctor for me. I believe if I am trusting a doctor with my life and to do work on my body price is NOT the first concern. Initially I wanted a lower body lift AND a breast lift and Dr. Franks explained while many doctors perform both surgeries - he has found because it requires pulling in opposite directions, it's best to choose one and let you body heal and do the other at a later time. He was the ONLY doctor who took the time to explain why this is so important and showed me the long term benefits of waiting. I also enjoyed feeling he took genuine concern and care (so did every person on his team) about making sure I was educated and well informed of the process. SIDE NOTE I learned they was help low income breast cancer survivors, children with cleft lips and cranial reconstruction. If I am aligning myself, trusting my life and care, I truly appreciate that we have similar values. Dr. Franks is the best so his schedule fills up months in advance, I had the ability to schedule my surgery (with a very minimal deposit) to secure the date of MY choice knowing I could easily change or cancel at any time. I didn't hesitate to schedule my surgery 3 months out. From pre-op to the post op visit (in my home no less) THIS DOCTOR and his team of professionals are the best - nothing less than a miracle maker if you get to see my before and afters! I have nothing but wonderful good things to say about his work, his dedication and I personally noted the long hours he commits once you're committed to him. The transformation he made possible on my body has been nothing short of miraculous! Please take a peek at my photos and follow my journey - I have more surgeries planned and I won't be going anywhere else!

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Simply the Best

Doctor Franks and his staff are simply the best. I had met with other surgeons over the past few years about abdominal liposuction but did not feel comfortable i felt like just a number. The minute i waked into his office i was immediately greeted by Dr Franks......i knew at the moment he was the right surgeon. The liposuction i had done changed everything i continued to loose weight in all...

5 out of 5 stars Abdominal Etching

Couldn't be more pleased

After losing a substantial amount of weight, I wanted to tighten up my abdomen. I went to consults with a couple local plastic surgeons before deciding to meet with Dr. Franks. The way Dr. Franks took his time during the consult and listened to every question I had (unlike the others who tried to rush through the consult), I immediately booked my surgery with Dr. Franks. I have a nice flat...

1 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Consultation: I wish I could give him 0 stars

I really wanted to like Dr. Franks, however, when I went in for my consult, he extremely rude and undermining. He was EXTREMELY forceful, trying to get me to choose right then and there, that he would be my PS, when I told him he was the first doctor and I wanted to meet with others. He charging Hollywood pricing in Iowa. When I asked another client of his who is a friend of mine, she was...
