Words are inadequate to express my...

A friend recommended Dr. Gallaher to me. Also breast implants. I noticed that one of my breasts didnt look right. I went to Dr. G and he said I had capsular of left breast. Both had gotten a lot smaller in the 30 yrs. I opted for slightly larger ones . He found while removing they had both ruptured.My breast had always been uneven. Now they look wonderful! My only regret is that I didnt choose...

Dr. Gallaher was referred to me by my general surgeon. What a lucky find! The staff is so amazingly warm and friendly! Those girls always make you feel loved and I am so happy for that.

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...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
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...
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
I have a question, I am 41, 189 lbs. and 17 days post op. I do still have swelling but my concern is I am not flat above my incision. I understand that the thickness will be there but I really imagined that I would be flat above my pubic bone? Please tell me there is still hope? I know that this takes time...just worried. Here are some pictures of what I'm talking about with swelling. Those...
5 out of 5 stars SMAS Facelift
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,...
5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery
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,...
I am 28 years old. Since high school I have had very large breasts. it was something I have dealt with but not been happy with for many years. Finally I have gotten my insurance to cover a reduction. I have also been very embarrassed and unhappy with the way my stomach looks. Ever since I had my son 5 years ago it has been big and saggy. I am uncomfortable in anything except big floppy t...
