5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
38 Years Old-mother of 20 Year Old, 60Lb Weight Loss. Tummy Tuck, Lipo of Flanks, Lateral Chest and Upper Back - Saint Louis, MO
Dr. McGuire did a breast reduction on me in 2006 and I was very happy with the results. Since then, I have wanted to go back for a TT. I'm so tired of having to purchase clothes that will hide my stomach and feeling so badly about my appearance. I am very nervous about doing this and the recovery process but just keep telling myself that it will be so worth it in the end. For the procedure, I...

42 Years Old, Nursed 2 Kids, Want my Natural Fullness Back Got Mentor 425 cc cohesive gel - Saint Louis, MO
In my teens and twenties, my breasts were nice and full and proportionate to my body type (tall, slender). Then when I had my two kids, I got a lot bigger and loved it! Unfortunately, after nursing my breasts disappeared and all I had left was what I call skin sacks. Two years ago I was talking to my dermatologist about getting my breasts done and she recommended Dr. Patricia McGuire. She...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction
Dr. McGuire is one of few Angels left in our current medical society. I was despondent, after several male plastic surgeons refused to do reconstruction because of radiation damage to my chest. Her name and Parkcrest Plastic Surgery were mentioned in a cancer self-help group I had joined. Thank goodness I was in attendance that evening, I had been looking for help over five years. After...
Couple Celebrates Wedding Anniversary with a Tummy Tuck for Two! 40 Yo Male / 41 Yo. Female--St. Louis, MO
Before we got married, I (husband) was 300-320 pounds, very sedentary and unhealthy. I had been an athlete, but wasn't too motivated to stay in shape after high school glory faded. My wife, on the other hand, was in great shape when we married. She exercised regularly, watched her diet and weighed around 145. Somewhere, in our decade-plus together, we met in the middle, weight-wise. I...

I chose Dr.Mcguire by a referral from a friend how had work done by her. I would recommend this doctor to anyone! She is a genius! 100% satisfied with my surgery. She picked the perfect size and perfect implant. 1 day out of surgery and I couldn't believe how great and natural my breast look! The surgery was so quick and the nurses helped me with every bit of pain and constantly were by my side in recovery. I am so please with everything!
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
I have always been large chested (34FF) which created a whole host of issues that had me in physical therapy and a chiropractor for years. I had always wanted a breast reduction. Finally, a friend had lipo and recommended her plastic surgeon. After doing some research, the institution she went to was one of the top in the country. So I go for the consult for the breast reduction and get...
1 out of 5 stars Liposuction
Not qualified. Loud. does not return phone calls. not respected by surgical nurses who believe she is too fast, always in a hurry and misses some aspects of her procedures. Dr. McGuire performed several procedures that she was either not competent to perform or performed in such haste they went drastically wrong. I was much worse off after the procedures than before and had to spend additional...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants
I went back and forth and back and forth and back and forth again a million times on whether to do this procedure. In the end, I cannot tell you how happy I am. It gave me so much more confidence and made me feel so much better about my body. I always had large breasts, but after nursing they were so depleted. I have also gotten back in shape after my pregnancies. The more weight I lost,...
