5 out of 5 stars Mini Tummy Tuck

Two months post surgery

I'm really happy with my results! Dr.Burns did a wonderful job and now I do not have a big pouch whenever I'm wearing dresses or tight clothes. Everything went super smooth and I was not nervous about any of the process.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

An amazing experience

I highly recommend Dr. Burns to everyone seeking quality care. He is gentle and listens to you. I didn't feel rushed and the staff is welcoming and friendly. After surgery my results are amazing!!! I love the new "me" I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I feel great! Pain free. Small incision. Definitely 5 star rating. I'm even considering a tummy tuck next. Cosmetic surgery is...

Great

I recently had a breast augmentation done with Dr. Burns. I have had a couple in the past with a different doctor but did not get the results I wanted. Dr. Burns did a wonderful job and I finally have the look I've been looking for. His staff was just as GREAT! They were very nice and answered all of my questions. I HIGHLY recommend him!

5 out of 5 stars Non Surgical Nose Job

Great Experience with Non-Surgical Nose Job by Dr. John Burns

I’ve never liked the slight bump on the bridge of my nose, but it’s never been serious enough for me to go through with a nose job. I’ve heard a lot about non-surgical nose jobs, which is injecting fillers into the nose to give the illusion of a straighter nose. Even though injecting a filler into the bridge of the nose is adding volume, it’s not obvious because the eye just sees a straigh...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Perfectionist and Professional - Dr Burns is exceptional

My experience with Dr. Burns has been exceptional from start to finish. He and his team - from the office staff to the surgical staff - are genuinely kind, warm and always make me feel welcome. I had a tummy tuck and liposuction of the flanks. I didn’t consider myself a simple case, as I had extra skin from a significant amount of weight loss, but Dr. Burns put me at ease about my concerns. ...

43 Years Old and No Longer Deflated!

I'm 43 years old and I felt like I just needed a little "pick me up" . After my consult with Dr Burns and his staff, I had made my mind up that I was going to move on with my breast augmentation. Dr Burns and his staff were amazing! I drove 400 miles to get to them but I knew that I was in good hands with a professional staff. I am now one week post op and I love the results. I have...

Excellent Experience - Dallas, TX

Dr. Burns has been excellent. He performed a breast augmentation two weeks ago. I went from completely flat-chested and asymmetrical, to 295cc and, what looks like will be a much more symmetrical and natural chest. I have only positive things to say about Dr. Burns. The initial consultation was helpful and informative, he even made extra time to see me and answer additional questions after a pre-op appointment. The procedure went smoothly thanks to his wonderful staff and expert work. My recovery has been as expected and his staff has been gracious each time I've called to ask a question. I love the results and feel as if he couldn't have done a better job. In addition, as an active person, he helped me mentally prepare for taking time off physical activity, but also offered sound recommendations for alternative exercises. I am so grateful for Dr. Burns and would recommend him to anyone! Thank you!

54 Yr Old with 5yrs Old Saline Implants Submuscular

Dr Burns was very understanding about my reservations about more surgery since I contracted MRSA during the first proceedure under a different doctors care. During the consultation he listened to my concerns and addressed them. On the 4th day post op my left nipple looked a bit purple so Dr Burns got me in right away to check me and put my mind at ease. His quick action really meant alot to me and it is clear that he has compassion for his patients. I would highly recomend Dr Burns for any surgical procedure.

5 out of 5 stars Inspira Breast Implants

5'6. 131lbs, Athletic; 3 Kids, 545cc Textured Inspira Cohesive Gel UHP, Under the Muscle, Plus Cheek Fillers - Dallas, TX

So far so good. All my pre-op experiences have been A+; this includes everything from the facility, staff, professionalism and comfort level I feel choosing Dr. Burns. I'll update as soon as I finish my BA. I'm also getting cheek fillers which is reflected in the price I posted. :)

No Implant Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer

For years, breast augmentation has remained one of the most popular plastic surgical procedures.  Breast augmentation has a very high patient satisfaction rating and safety profile.  However, many women want to avoid using an implant when considering breast augmentation.  The reasons for not wanting an implant are numerous:  capsular contracture, need for replacement procedures, or concerns about having a foreign body.  For these women, fat transfer breast augmentation is a viable opti...

Drain Free Tummy Tuck: Recover Faster and Better

One of the most popular plastic surgery procedures is a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty. This procedure is designed to remove lower abdominal excess skin, fat, and stretch marks from weight gain or pregnancy. A low bikini incision is used to hide the tummy tuck scar below a panty or swimsuit line. The abdominal muscles are tightened to narrow the waist and give an hourglass shape. The procedure requires undermining or dissection up to the rib cage area to pull the skin tight (see above...

Platelets are isolated from the blood s...

How Long Does a Facelift Last

In my busy facelift practice, one of the most common questions my patients ask is: "How long will my facelift last?" The standard answer is usually 10 years. My answer is never simple. I usually say, "as long as you take care of your face." Your face is like any other part of your body that requires maintenance and work. We live in a world where gravity rules supreme and decay is the defining principle. For example, you have to maintain your body in order to stay fit. You can't, for...
