Return Trip Requested for my Saggy Boobs and Tummy!!! - Powell, TN

I have been doing some serious research over the past 3 months on "mommy makeovers". I had joked about it before but had never even looked in to the ideal until I went on vacation and there were signs every where and posters with all kinds of information about plastic surgery. So needless to say after a long day out the husband and I were relaxing and I brought it up. Never expected him to be...

49 Years Old Tired of Lugging Around 42f Breasts Decided to Have Breast Reduction - Knoxville, TN

Was tired of the heaviness of my breast, sweating underneath, moving around them for sleep and how I looked in my clothes. Also one was bigger than the other. Now they are near perfect! I love them! Asked my gyno who she recommends. I had consultation with DR. TOM GALLAHER. I didn't need to shop around as my husband and I felt completely comfortable and confident with him. He does not take...

66 Yr Old Lower Face/Neck Lift on May 21, 2015. Knoxville, TN

At 66 years of age, I decided it was the right time for a facelift. I had the upper/lower blepharoplasty (eyelid) in December 2013, and was pleased with the results. My PS followed up with me from that surgery for a full year, and I began discussing the possibility of a facelift at some point. After losing about 15 lbs over the past year - I decided the weight loss looks great on your body,...

Upper and Lower Eyelid Surgery - Knoxville, TN

I am 65 yrs old, and inherited my dad's eyes. I have always wished I had more open upper eyelids, and had been thinking of surgery since I was in my 40s. But now that I am retired and have more time for such things, I decided to go for it. I decided to do lower and upper. I was put to sleep, as my doctor said he routinely uses general anesthesia if lower lids are involved. I had no pain,...
