My Preop pictures today After reading another RS journey that is very...

Excellent Doctor!!! Cares Highly About the Quality of His Work! - Austin, TX

Personal confidence I decided to get a breast augmentation for self confidence reasons. I was barely an A cup and never had kids before. He wasn't sure how much my skin around my breasts would stretch because of this. I gave Dr. Gorman instructions to go as big as he could without it looking out of proportion and too fake. He was able to get 425cc pouches in each of my breasts under the...

Major Challenge - Austin, TX

Control cyst outbreak. Imagine an outbreak of sebacious cysts underneath the chin. Very difficult to control and it took multiple surgeries to stop the growth.

I am pleased with every aspect of my procedure.

Mini Lift with Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty - Austin, TX

I had a mini lift with SMAS and a upper and lower blepharoplasty 3 months ago. At 49 yrs. old I was already getting a turkey waddle neck and droopy facial skin. I did not want to turn 50 already looking and feeling old. I have had several other procedures in the past including tummy tuck and breast augmentation, so I wasn't at all reluctant to have my face improved also. Recovery has been more...

From the Neck Up - Plastic Surgery for Men

While it is true that in the past most cosmetic surgery patients have been women and this is certainly been the case in my practice of over 30 years, the number of men seeking cosmetic surgery is on the rise. In the past, most men would never consider skincare or cosmetic surgery. They also would not consider health-food drinks, going to the gym or spending $300 for jogging shoes. In this new era, men are recognized by news media, marketers and manufacturing as a potentially very...

Abdominoplasty - Tummy tuck

Abdominoplasty – “Tummy-tuck” Patients frequently ask what they can do to tighten or restore the shape of their abdomen. This may be following the birth of children or after significant weight loss. But whatever the cause of the problem, it seems that exercise and diet will often not be enough to reverse the damage. An abdominoplasty may be the answer. It is necessary to first identify the extent of the problem and whether it involves skin only, skin and fat, or deeper structures...
