5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Amazing experience!

I chose to go to Dr. Burns for a breast augmentation and couldn't have been happier with my decision. My whole experience was amazing. From the first day I called the office for information, Dr. Burns personally called me within a few hours to talk about a consult, what I was looking for, and to answer questions. I live in Maine and traveled to Dallas for this. Dr. Burns, the nurses, and...

Very pleased with Dr. John Burns

Dr. John Burns and his staff were terrific. They are genuinely kind, and confident in what they do. They are excellent at explaining the procedure/product, both when I first inquired about fillers, and during the procedure. If you're looking for a subtle plump and erasing wrinkles this is a fabulous product. Im 52 and didn't want an exaggerated look, just an enhancement of my natural...

Dr. John Burns-Best of the Best

We moved to Dallas 2 years ago and I selected Dr. Burns based on his reviews. I met with him for a consultation and he and his staff impressed me as being both knowledgable and genuinely caring. My instincts proved right. I had an abdominoplasty January 2016 and couldn't be more pleased with my results. After the surgery, even though I am an RN, I had concerns and questions. They always...

He is very kind and caring and actually listened to my concerns. He answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable. I could not be happier with my results and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to have...

5 out of 5 stars Butt Augmentation

Great doc

I really enjoyed having Dr. Burns as my surgeon. I initially chose him because he did my aunt's surgery and she looked good. Then I chose him because I had went to another surgeon first and he wanted me to lose 30 lbs before he would do the surgery. I'm 200lbs and 5'2. I like that Dr. Burns did not require me to lose weight. I like being plus size and I feel it's looks so natural because I...

An Amazing Experience!! - Dallas, TX

Upon my very first doctor visit I was nervous, but it went away when Dr. Burns staff and himself made feel at ease. Dr. Burns explain the procedures thoroughly. I was excited seeing 3D pictures of myself of options on breast size, I knew at that moment of my decision.

Breast Augmentation - Dallas, TX

Dr. Burns was very kind, and always greeted me with a smile and hand shake. Dr. Burns was the only doctor that had replied to me on the Zwivel website and had his office staff call me at home to make a consultation appointment within a few days of me talking to him. I would recommend Dr. Burns to anyone!

Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty (Nose Job)

The use of facial fillers can be very effective in certain cases where reshaping the nose is desired:  nonsurgical rhinoplasty.  The advantage is that this procedure is quick, relatively painless, and requires no downtime or recovery.  For obvious reasons, it is also much less expensive than traditional rhinoplasty.  Another advantage is that the procedure is temporary and reversible if hyaluronic acid fillers are used.  This allows the patient the opportunity to live with their new nose...

Bra Fat: An Excellent Solution to a Common Problem

One of the most common requests I receive in my very busy breast augmentation practice is how to treat bra fat.  This fat pocket is located immediately in front and behind the armpit area just above the bra strap and goes by many different names:  turkey neck, side cheeks, armpit fat, poochy/pudgy waddle thing, sleavage, armpit cleavage, and bra fat.Solutions for removing this fat have ranged from surgery in the form of liposuction to Cool Sculpting cryolipolysis.  However, this fat has p...

Upper Pole Fullness in Breast Augmentation: The Role of Cohesive Round Implants

One very common request from breast augmentation patients is for more cleavage and upper pole fullness. This look is characterized by fullness/roundness in the upper chest, cleavage, and an implant which appears to sit higher on the chest. Achieving this look requires careful attention to detail and choosing the correct size and type of breast implant. Surgical Considerations: Surgeons should be very careful and meticulous in dissecting the "pocket" or space where the...
