5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Highly recommend!

Dr. Gorman did a great job removing the bags and dark circles under my eyes. HUGE difference and definitely worth it! The procedure was simple and not much down time at all. Bruising was pretty bad, bad I bruise very easily. My right eye incision had a tiny bump of scar tissue which he quickly set up an appointment to correct it.

Getting 4mm Permalip - Austin, TX

I don't normally write reviews, but I just can't understand why this dr doesn't have more positive reviews. Dr. Gorman and his staff are absolutely amazing. They are just genuinely nice people. There is not one person I have met at his office that I didn't love. Dr. Gorman takes so much time during your consultation and makes sure he answers all of your questions, and Margaret, his office manager, is just awesome. She too talked to me like she had all the time in the world. She was so sweet and I really valued her opinion. I found her to be so helpful. She is just a great person. I am extremely happy with my decision to get lip implants with Dr. Gorman. He did a wonderful job and I am completely happy with my results. After my surgery, I went back and got Dysport with the P.A., Lauren. I am new to the Austin area, but I have been getting Dysport for 6 years now and was a little hesitant to try someone new, but Lauren is also amazing. She was thorough and asked me exactly what I wanted. The results are perfect. I couldn't be happier. She is so sweet, caring and gentle. I love her so much. I am so glad with my decision to use this office. Everyone at Dr Gorman's office is so nice. I in no way felt they were just about getting my money. They genuinely just seemed like they wanted me to be happy. Thank you so much Dr Gorman and staff! I have had the best and most positive experience with y'all and I am so glad I found y'all!

Thank You - Austin, TX

I remember hearing Dr Gorman's voice outside the door and thinking this is the guy I want to be my surgeon. I had interviewed a few other doctors and wasn’t ready to commit to having a breast augmentation until I shook his hand and felt completely safe. He did a fabulous job of course, and I am very happy I went through with it! Since then you have treated my biking scars, removed a small lump in my breast, and always taken the time out of your hectic day to chat for a few minutes about my little world. I thank you Dr. Gorman, from the bottom of my heart. Anne Shackelford

Major Challenge - Austin, TX

I would not consider another plastic surgeon because his outstanding work. Dr. Gorman strives for the most natural look that can be achieved and possesses an old fashioned warmth you seldom find among medical doctors. Dr. Gorman is very honest, sharing what he feels is in your best interest with your procedure. He listens to what your vision is. In addition to my surgical procedures, Austin Plastic Surgery Institute’s Skin Clinic works with Dr. Gorman in providing the safest restorative cosmetic care. (Lots of compliments on my complexion.)

Excellent Experience - Austin, TX

I consider Dr.Gorman as one of the best doctor in the town. He made me feel so comfortable before and after my surgery. He took care of me just like his own family member. He and his staff kept checking with me until I felt fine. They answered all my question and helped me when ever I needed help.

Dr. Gorman took all the time in the world with me to answer all of my questions no matter how small or insignificant they were, to the very big ones. His bedside manner was thorough and very calming. He explained all different types of procedures and all types of implants and gave me all the options and let me make the decision on what to go with. I highly recommend Dr. Gorman!

Great Experience Every Time - Austin, TX

I had a great experience with Dr. Gorman and his staff. They made me feel comfortable and they made every appointment personal... not just another patient! I've been going to Dr. Gorman for 7 years, and the fact that he still has the same staff and remember me every time I'm there speaks volumes about their patient care. I would highly recommend Dr. Gorman's office!

Fantastic Breast Augmentation - Austin, TX

I had a breast augmentation in 2010 by Dr. G. It took me several years to decide to have the procedure. Dr. G spent over an hour explaining the procedure to me and my husband. He was kind and listened to our questions. The surgery went great and my results are beautiful. I would recommend him to everyone!

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...
