5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

I Love the Results of my Blepharoplasty and Browlift

He was courteous and very conscientous about the outcome. I never once questioned his integrity nor his same desire as I for the best results possible. He is always very professional.

5 out of 5 stars Male Tummy Tuck

Male Tummy Tuck W/ Gynecomastia - Austin, TX

I underwent a tummy tuck and gynecomastia on 10/4. So far everything has been just as I've read here. I've been reading this site pretty much 24/7 since about two weeks before my surgery. The one thing I did not read about and wanted to bring to light is an issue I had that I did not expect. So far, it has not been the pain that has kept me down, I've been off the pain mess since day 3 po...

Tummy Tuck with Lipo of Flanks and Upper Thighs - In 2 Days! - Austin, TX

Highly recommended (from another surgeon). Very professional and took their time to make sure I was comfortable and had all of my questions answered. Did an AWESOME job.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Removal and Replacement of my Implants - Austin, TX

I decided to have surgery with Dr. Tjelmeland after many of my friends/family had had procedures with him and I saw the results first hand. He removed my old implants and put new silicone ones in and I cant believe the improvement in shape. He seems to be a perfectionist and I really like that about him. The office staff was great and highly recommend him!

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Flat Stomach After Liposuction - Austin, TX

I did a lot of research before choosing Dr. Tjelmeland. After interviewing 3 different plastic surgeons, I chose Dr. Tjelmeland based on his experience and professionalism. He and his assistant were kind and caring. I felt so relaxed and confident as I went into surgery. After the surgery .... wow! I finally have a flat stomach! Everything went fine and I look great! Dr. Tjelmeland is the only...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

Best Thing I've Done for Myself - Austin, TX

I chose him based on the recommendation of a friend who had used him and was happy. He exceeded all my expectations and so did my results. Dr. Tjelmeland did my breast augmentation and did an amazing job. He was completely thorough and his staff was also great. The surgery center is in the same building as his office and the nurses were beyond fabulous. After consulting with a few other docs in the area I'm really glad I chose him. I was worried about the size coming out right but he has a really good eye and listened to what I wanted. I'm very happy.

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Wish I Would Have Done It Sooner! - Austin, TX

A friend of mine had eyelid surgery with him a year ago and was very happy and could not say enough about him.

5 out of 5 stars Mohs Surgery

Excision of a Basal Cell Carcinoma - Austin, TX

Skillful and uber pleasant

5 out of 5 stars Eye Bags Treatment

Looking Tired All the Time - Austin, TX

Professional and caring. Artistry in plastic surgery is not something that can be taught. He definitely has a superior skill set.

5 out of 5 stars Sientra Breast Implants

Breast Augmentation Sientra 405 Hp and Hernia Repair :) - Austin, TX

Honestly, I can't say enough good things about Dr. T. His staff (especially Cythia) are so caring and really do reassure you when you have any questions. He is a perfectionist and knows what he is doing. It took me MONTHS of research to finally take the plunge. I am so happy with my results so far. I was scared of being too big, and he knew what shape I was wanting but also knew I wanted them to be proportionate to my shape. Would definitely recommend! :)
