5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

I wanted my breasts to have the volume - Breast Augmentation - Dallas, TX

I wanted my breasts to have the volume that they had prior to having my two children. It was the first time that I had considered having elective surgery and was a bit nervous that I may come out of the surgery with breasts larger than I wanted. I explained that I wanted them "natural" looking and feeling. I awoke from surgery and was ecstatic about my new breasts. I was given...

You'll Want to Come Back for More! - Dallas, TX

Dr T is a star in Dallas plastic surgery. Personalized preoperative care and long term follow up. Two years out from breast augmentation and body contouring and the results are still better than I would have ever dreamt. I have sent many friends!

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Secondary Rhinoplasty - Dallas, TX

My experience with Dr T for my secondary rhinoplasty was excellent. I saw him as for a second opinion for the procedure I was wanting to have and ended up choosing him as my surgeon based on the comfort level I had with his confidence in performing the procedure and my results were far greater than any expectations I had. I have recommended him to several friends all of which have been...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

reconstruction after mastectomy - Dallas

Having had bilateral breast cancer I opted for double mastectomy with reconstruction. My biggest pro to this decision was not having to worry about cysts and tumors which I have dealt with since I was 16 years old. I am now 54 years old and it was the best decision I could have made for my health and emotional well being. I was fortunate to be able to opt for immediate reconstruction with...

Dr. Trussler is the Kind of Surgeon You Would Build in Your Dreams. - Dallas, TX

First, I'd like to say that the cost is what I paid out of pocket. My nose was totally messed up due to a birth defect and then additional trauma so my insurance company paid for most of it. I don't know how much it was. Second, his credentials are infallible: chief resident of his surgical class; graduated everything with honors; studied with the renowned Dr. Gunter; and is a...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

Breast Lift with Saline Implant Was a Slow Healer but It Turned out Great - Dallas, TX

I did it bc I am 31 and had my kids young and lost a lot of weight and my breast were sagging. I looked good in a bra but that was not good enough for me. I realized that when I was naked in the bathroom that I never looked in the mirror and when I started to look I realized that my breast made me sad and I had probobly tried to avoid looking.

Best Decision I've Made! - Dallas, TX

I was very nervous about getting a breast augmentation but had been wanting one for years. After hearing about Dr. T I decided to make an appt. His office was extremely nice and the staff was exceptional. During my consultation, we decided on my breat implant size as well as type of implant. I went for 370 cc, silicone implants, under the muscle. Dr. T was so helpful with my decision and was...

Great Doctor - Dallas, TX

After 2 kids and many abdominal surgeries I needed skin and muscles fixed.

5 out of 5 stars Panniculectomy

Helping Me To Move Back To Being Pain-Free - Dallas, TX

I have a barriage of medical problems. Every body movement was painful and my doctors told me this would also eliminate reoccurring rashes and sores. It has truly stopped my rashes and pains. I thank GOD for this dr. and his staff being so caring . I consider them to be a niche above the rest.

49 Year Old Twins and Another Child - Austin, TX

I was referred to Dr. Trussler by someone that had previous surgery with him. The moment that I walked in the door, I knew that I was at the right place. I had my oldest daughter in 1986, and then twins in 1988. Ever since then, the skin in my tummy area was damaged. It has always been an insecurity for me. No matter how hard i worked out, it wouldn't go away. After meeting with Dr....
