Breast Obsession 5'2, 137 Lbs (Should Be 125 Lbs)

Beware of his office manager booking you for surgery the very next week, but have you come in a few days later to sign papers. Beware of her reassuring you to let her know by the weekend if you change your mind. I freaked out because they told me it was safe, but read more horror stories of health issues which I called them to cancelled because I was not assured. Point of the story I lost $750 because the office manager was shady and the doctor did not want to return the money. Glad I lost the money instead of being under the knife or care of shady people. Ladies beware. Leave my original post below: Met Dr. Gorman for consult back in 2006, 10 years later, I can't stop remember how beautiful his BA that I saw in person (3 women). I tried reading reviews about him on RS but do not see a lot. So I'm going on: my gf is still happy with her BA from him, beautiful results that I actually got to see from many angles lol. I've moved back to Austin, therefore, aftercare is also a deciding factor. Love my TT doctor (Dr. Newall), but he's in Houston.

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

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!

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.

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!

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.)

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

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!

Mini Lift with Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty - Austin, TX

I have been a patient of Dr. Gorman's for 12 yrs. and have had several procedures performed by him during this time. I would not trust my body to any other plastic surgeon. Dr. Gorman has always been very caring and spends as much time as needed to be sure I'm comfortable with and understand the surgery and expected outcome. He is a true artist and perfectionist. His work is exceptional and always looks very natural.

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...
