Finally Something for my 50th Birthday! - Kansas City, KS

I have wanted this surgery since I gave birth to my twins 21 years ago. They were big babies and I got so big. I was 5'1 and about 125lbs when I got pregnant. On delivery date I weighed about 200lbs.... Since then I have lost the weight and I started running and would be considered pretty healthy but my stomach was always something that bothered me. I could NEVER tuck in my shirts or buy...

2 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction


About a year and a half ago I had a breast reduction. I waited this long to do this review hoping maybe some thing would change. I feel like my surgery was botched. My nipples are weird shapes and they look sewn on. You can see the stitching scars. My breast are different shapes, and the scaring is hideous. On the sides the scars are literally an inch wide, and you can see all the marks from...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

Breast lift with 225 cc implants and umbilical hernia repair

I'm getting ready for my lift and absolutely obsessing. Doc says I need an implant. Everyone says listen to the doc. I've been huuuuge my whole life. Now I'm all shrunken from babies and I like my size. He says do a 250 cc and if I really want to be the same size, he can take out tissue but just get shape. I want to listen to him but I keep thinking if I like my size do I really need an...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Dr. Cannova is Amazing. Overland Park, KS

I am almost 6 weeks post op on my breast augmentation done by Dr. Cannova. I am 100% satisfied with my results. I showed Dr. Cannova pictures of what I wanted and emphasized that I wanted a natural result. He met and exceeded all of my expectations. When you have a surgery like this you want to use the very best and lucky for me that is what I got when I chose Dr. Cannova!

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

40 Year Old Female-liposuction and Breast Reduction - Leawood, KS

I traveled to come see Dr Cannova and couldn't be happier. He is truly an expert in his field--he knew every answer to my questions, presented options and easily inspired all my confidence in him. He is an amazing surgeon and everyone who works with him reiterated that as well. Sometimes plastic surgeons come off as arrogant or aloof and Dr Cannova is the furthest thing from...

35 y/o with TT, BL/BA, lipo to flanks and back, and fat transfer to butt

I have met with and selected my surgeon, Dr. Joseph Cannova. He was professional and knowledgeable, but very kind and respectful. I lost over 100 pounds and feel amazing! I would like my body to match my spirit, energy and happiness so I am pursuing cosmetic surgery. Who knew the asymmetry in my breasts would become so prominent with weight loss? It wasn't that noticeable 100 pounds ago...

Body Lift After 285lb Weight Loss - Kansas City, KS

I am a 26 y/o male who had a Lap RNY in April of 2013, after which I dropped from my highest weight of 455 lbs to 170 lbs. While I was very happy with my results from the bypass, the weight loss left me looking very "deflated" and the extra skin was really depressing me. I had met with a few plastic surgeons in the KC area and I decided upon Dr Cannova after being referred to him by my...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

35th Birthday PRESENT - Overland Park

The pictures show the pros. The results are amazing 5 days in. Anyone looking for a PS in Overland Park, talk to Dr. Cannova. He was amazing and I could not be happier with my results so far. I am only 5 days yin but I hope my results get even better. CONS: HYMROIDS - and BAD. I think that is really the worst part and I didn't even have a pain pump. I have them so bad I am going to have to...

31 Year Old Mother of 4 - Leawood, KS

I have wanted a ba for over 8 years. I have a 9 yr old boy, 5 yr old boy, 3 yr old boy and a 1 1/2 yr old girl. I breastfed a total of 4 1/2 years and my boobs were destroyed. So I finally decided to do it! I went to several consultations and decided that Dr Cannova was right for me. Gosh, I think the hardest part is sizing. I know I wanted to be a full C but there is a broad range for...
