5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

46 Yrs Old Post Pregnancy Loose Skin - Abilene, TX

Dr. Tobin was not only kind and friendly, he was very informative. He took his time to make sure I was aware of ALL of the risks and benefits of the procedure and even told me about other options available. I chose to go back for a second consultation (no charge) a little over month later and he spent time just going over everything again. I was 100% confident he was the man for the job and...

Breast Revision - Abilene, TX

My breast revision was needed due to what was diagnosed as capsular contracture on the right breast and excessive breast tissue on the left causing the implant to remain high. the plan was to replace silicone with saline and a slightly larger size and release the scar tissue. the result was a double bubble on the left breast the day of surgery requiring an additional surgery 2 weeks later...

2 Weeks Post Op TY with Muscle Repair and Lipo - Abeline, TX

I'm just at my 2 week mark of TY with muscle repair, breast reduction and lipo, it's really a Rollar coaster ride, I can literally feel my nerves waking up, and sometimes my abdominal muscle contract so tight, like I'm stuck in a sit up or a abdominal crunch that won't let go, I'm just a little frustrated because yesterday I didn't take any pain medication, and today I refused to feel pain,...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

29 Yr Old Mom of 2 - Abilene, TX

Dr Tobin and his staff have been excellent from consultation to my many questions to my post op care. Dena and Dr Tobin have answered my many questions via email, phone, and in person. During my first post op visit I was very emotional and Dena and Dr Tobin made me feel so much better about my slower than average recovery. My results so far (1 month post) are fantastic and Dr Tobin really knows what he's doing!

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Wonderful experience

Doctor Tobin and his staff are wonderful! I have been to a couple of other plastic surgeons in Houston and I haven't found anybody better than doctor Tobin. He did a great job with my surgery I have no complaints. He also has a very cozy place for out of town patients to stay for the night which was very convenient. I feel so at home and welcome at his office.

5 out of 5 stars Facelift Revision

Sixty-eight and now looking GREAT!!

Undoubtedly, Dr. Tobin is the most talented, knowledgeable, compassionate cosmetic surgeon in Southwestern USA. He performed facelift, full laser resurfacing, and lower eyelid surgery 2/14/2017. I am 68 yrs. old, and Dr. Tobin performed 1st facelift 1997. (with awesome results as well) No surprise that numerous surgeons train under Dr. Tobin to learn up-to-date cosmetic surgical techniques. ...
