5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover
37 Years Old, Mommy of 2. Had Tummy Tuck with Lipo 360, Breast Lift with 405cc MP Implants, Lipo on Inner Thighs and Knees.
I had 3 consultations with 2 different doctors before I met with dr. Reid. Third time is the charm and my third doctor was my angel! He was one of 5 doctors I originally picked from the beginning of doing research on RealSelf. He was also recommended by my friend. The staff and nurses at "Restora" were so nice! I felt welcomed right away! After meeting with my nurse Lindsay I felt great right away. My husband and I really liked the explanation about surgeries I was interested in. And then we met with the doctor! Super nice man with wonderful bedside manners. He was so confident in what he was offering! He said that in his practice they combine a few surgeries at once all the time so the patients wouldn't need extra time to recover. I don't know why, but I trusted him right away! I just felt so comfortable and really confident in his ability to make my dream come true. Dr. Reid is such a nice person I just wanted to give him a hug! When I have this feeling about people I know that I can trust them! Originally I was planning to have my surgery in August 2017z Right after my very first consultation with Dr. Reid I decided to do it faster. My consultation was on April 10th. We scheduled my surgery for May 2nd. A week later I had my two week preop and then May 2nd I had my huge surgery that lasted 9 hours. From my first consultation to the day of surgery I didn't sleep at all. I was nervous. Surgery went well. My results are so dramatic! I can't believe it's my body! I'm still in a lot of pain but it was so worth it! I can't wait to wear my first bikini in probably 20 years! Dr. Reid I love you and all your staff! Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart!

I want to thank Dr Dustin Reid, Kacie and Roxy. I called Restora inquiring about a breast augmentation and consultation. Roxy was wonderful and polite in explaining the details and estimated cost. At my appointment I met with Kacie first and then Dr Reid. He made me feel comfortable and listened to my request and Kacie was so supportive when trying on the sizers, without her I do not think...
I. Am. So. Excited. I'm the mother of one child--a teenager--and since he was born, I've wanted this! Just to feel sexy and not have to always hide my tummy and overall sagginess will be such an amazing feeling. I hate that "OH NO!" moment when you think your shirt may have come up a little too high and your tummy might have made an appearance. I'm saying goodbye to...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
I couldn’t be happier with my experience with Dr. Reid and his team. I had done quite a bit a research on many plastic surgeons, including Dr. Reid, by the time I met him, but it only took minutes from meeting him to decide that he was the right surgeon for me. He is professional, yet very approachable. I felt comfortable with him instantly, and trusted him very quickly. He took the time to answer all my questions thoroughly. Perhaps most importantly, he listened intently when I expressed my expectations for the outcome. I didn’t want to go “too small” but at the same time, I wanted to get relief from my back and neck pain. Dr. Reid repeated my expectations on several occasions, including right before surgery. After the surgery, I was thrilled to see that my results were exactly what I had envisioned. In addition to my wonderful experience with Dr. Reid, I found his staff to be very attentive and friendly. During my initial research, I spoke with Mary, who was positive and encouraging, yet never pressured me in any way. At my pre-op visit, I had the pleasure of meeting Leslie, a nurse who went over the instructions for pre-op and post-op with me in detail. Her patience and reassurance helped me feel comfortable moving forward with the surgery. On the day of the surgery, the team treated me like I was their most important patient. I met several of the people who would be in the operating room, all of whom were positive and friendly. Dr. Reid came into my room with a big smile. We discussed my expectations once more and I felt very confident in both Dr. Reid and my decision to have the surgery. I would recommend Dr. Reid to anyone and everyone, including my closest friends and family.

I chose breast augmentation for myself. I did not like looking at myself naked in the mirror. I would quickly put a shirt on when I got out of the shower. I was an A before I had kids and after breast feeding both, I was left with loose skin and a nearly A. I am athletic build and enjoy working out. I did not want anything extreme but enough to make me feel more feminine. I read reviews on the...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
I had visited other doctors before Dr. Reid but as soon as i went in for my initial consultation with him, I felt comfortable moving forward; I wasted no time scheduling my breast augmentation. I was extremely impressed with the care and sensitivity i was treated with by Dr. Reid throughout the entire process. Dr. Reid took the time to make sure I was completely comfortable, including allowing me to change my implant size and type THE DAY BEFORE my operation. The results are phenomenal and he has truly changed my life. I feel so incredibly confident and happy with my results. Also Dr. Reid and his nurses were able to give me helpful advice any time I needed it; I could always call Restora with my questions. I would highly recommend Dr. Reid for anyone considering having an operation!
5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift
Dr. R is absolutely awesome. I went to him hating my chest. My breasts were (in my mind) severely deformed. He performed a lift and implants. I can tell enough people about my experience. I am 11 days post op and my results are absolutely amazing!!!
5 out of 5 stars Liposuction
Dr. Reid is understanding, patient and very informative. He will put you at ease if you are a nervous patient!
5 out of 5 stars Sientra Breast Implants
From his professionalism to his easy going but obvious perfectionist personality, I could not say nicer things about Dr. Reid. From day one I felt comfortable and he just struck me as someone I could trust- which coming from me says a lot! He truly understood my concerns and desires, and thoroughly assessed and took into consideration my feelings and lifestyle regarding how I wanted my breasts to look/ behave. He also responded promptly to emails and I trusted him so much I allowed him to choose my size in the OR! I will update this as my breasts change but for now I couldn't be more pleased.
