5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Fabulous surgeon

Dr.McDonough is fabulous and so good at what he does. I was terrified to get a BA, but I couldn't be happier. He held my hand as I went to sleep and was available around the clock to address all of my concerns post-op. I highly recommend Dr.McDonough!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Lifting the weight of the world

Marvelous! Breast reduction has lifted the weight of the world from my back and shoulders. No more curved over at the end of the day, I can hike all day without difficulty. Great experience, don't wait!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

Great Experience

I had a breast lift with augmentation. I am very athletic and after losing 50 lbs and nursing 2 kids, the girls were looking pretty ancient. I was terrified to get this surgery but the dr and staff made me feel very comfortable. They answered all my questions promptly. They allowed me to go through my process and let me come in a couple extra times because I was unsure of a couple things. Dr...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Great Experience

Dr. McDonough and his staff are awesome! I had all my questions answered before surgery and after surgery I received the same experience as before surgery. He was available after hours if I had any questions or issues. Which I had no issues at all! His staff was great. Always greeted with a smile. I would recommend Dr. McDonough!

3 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

45, 34f - Asheville, NC

He and his assistant are great for the initial consult, but from there communication goes down hill. Now, first, I chose this doctor, based on nipple placement in his after pictures. I did not pay attention to size of after pictures. That was my mistake. Double check the after pictures, and make sure that is the breast you want, because that is the one you are going to get. This is MAJOR surgery, and I think as far as that goes, Doctor McDonough is a good surgeon. I think the aftercare leaves much to be desired; but regarding the surgery, he did a good job. If you want the breasts like in his pictures (and they are very pretty youthful looking breasts) Just set up a different aftercare team.
