Are you a patient of Matthew J. Trovato, MD?
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
52 Year Old, 200 Lb. Weight Loss, Mother of 2 Large Babies, AbdomneoplastyTT, Hernia Repair, Arm & Thigh Lift. Dallas, TX
Dr. Trovato is literally a life changing doctor. Over the last few years I have lost 200 lbs. following weight loss surgery. I had an excessive amount of stomach flab than hung below my pubic area. My legs had curtains hanging down them from my groin to below my knees. I had ugly skin hanging from my arms. At age 52, Dr. Trovato gave me my life back, actually a life I have never known. Now I am scheduled to have a breast lift and augmentation completed on 06/18/15. Dr. Trovato and his staff are very caring. They always take whatever time I need, to listen to me and answer any questions I may have. I had completed 3 earlier consultations with other surgeons for the tummy tuck. None of the other surgeons would even listed to me when I asked about the arm and thigh lift. I knew as big as my stomach and thighs were that if I did not take care of both at the same time, clothes still would not fit right. Why have a small waist when your legs are huge and you still can't get into smaller sizes???? When I called Dr. Trovato's office to ask about a consultation I spoke to Sandy. She was so very sweet and informative. She had an answer to every question, did not rush through the conversation and made me feel welcomed from the start. I was fairly certain that I would be using Dr. Trovato based solely on my conversation with Sandy. Once I met Dr. Trovato, I was HOOKED! This man is younger than I expected but wiser than his years. He is so VERY kind, knowledgeable, and sincere. He took the necessary time with me on that first consult to answer ALL my questions, provided suggestions on why I did or did not need a particular procedure and made me feel VERY confident in his abilities, knowledge, and skills. He never made me feel silly about any question I asked, and believe me, I had a few whoppers. We started the insurance process immediately. There was no doubt in my mind that I wanted Dr. Trovato to take care of me. Sandy handled all of the insurance paperwork and let me know immediately when everything was approved. Surgery was scheduled for Nov. 19, 2014. On the day of my surgery, Dr. Trovato came in and we discussed what he was going to do. It was to be a very long surgery, 8 hours. Dr. Trovato did the tummy tuck, arm and thigh lift and was assisted by Dr. Thomas Roshek (with the Nicholson Clinic) who also repaired a hernia that I've had for 26 years (that's another story). Dr. Trovato did the "mark up" on me and set my nerves at ease. He checked on me the first thing the next morning in the hospital as I stayed there for 3 days. I received excellent care while in the hospital and Dr. Trovato checked on me both days. I returned to his office for my post op visit at one week. Throughout the next several months I saw Dr. Trovato and his office staff several times. Each time was as pleasant as the first. Amy and Sarah are his nurses/medical assistants. They were always helpful, answered my questions, held my hand when I had an emotional crisis, and really saw me through the entire recovery. I did have some medical setbacks which required additional care and eventually 2 more surgeries. This was due to my own body's healing problems and my nutrition issues. Dr. Trovato tried his best to resolve the problems without further surgeries but eventually we had to go back into the OR. Each time, Dr. Trovato would talk with me, explain everything, and ease any fears or doubts that I was having. I am very happy to say that the complications have resolved and I'm healing beautifully. I appreciate the time, care, and attention he spent on me. I am now about to have my breast lifted and implants inserted. I am so excited. I met with Sarah yesterday. She explained all the breast procedure to me and helped me with deciding on what size I want to have implanted. Dr. Trovato takes what God gave to me, corrects the damages I have done with a life time of obesity and 2 children, and is sculpting me a body that I've only dreamed of. I'm not a Victoria Secret's model but I never planned to be one. I LOVE the changes, I have more confidence in myself and I just feel better all over. Throughout all of this, Dr. Trovato and his staff have been here for me. I can't think of any other time I have had this much support and care from any physician. Dr. Trovato is a caring and humble man. He loves what he does and is a bit OCD about it because he wants the best possible outcome for his patients. He takes great pride in his work and his treatment of his patients. I can never thank him enough. At 52, I've finally got a body that I am not ashamed of. I don't hide when the cameras come out and I don't try to stand behind others when in front of a group of people. I am no longer ashamed to be seen by people. I work with the public and this has made a huge difference in my attitude all the way around. When I started this journey of trying to fix my saggy and hanging skin, I prayed that God would direct me to the right surgeon who had the skills and the knowledge to take excellent care of me. God did exactly that. He BLESSED me and directed me to Dr. Trovato, who made all of this possible. I am FOREVER grateful for Dr. Trovato and his staff. If you are even considering having any kind of plastic or reconstructive surgery, please meet with Dr. Trovato. He will change your life - forever
The doctor and staff are awesome!!! They have been very helpful in answering any questions I might have. They are doing their best to ensure I have a fabulous body after surgery.

I did a lot of research on Dr. Trovato since he does not have many photos on his website. I found that he has several specialties that cross over into reconstructive to implantations of adults and pediatrics. When I saw all of his trainings, multiple surgical areas, and teaching/college affiliations I knew he would be the OCD PS for me. I private messaged several of his prior patients on this website and looked at his portfolio in his office and was very impressed. My husband with with me to my first consultation and Dr. Trovato listened to what I wanted and gave me a list of real expectations. He did measurements, looked at the quality of my skin, and had his office staff give me several procedure options with prices included. He gave me information to research on my own so I could make informed decisions before my pre-op exam. My pre-op visit was the most informative….Amy is part of Trovato's PS team…she gave me several options while sizing for my AU and helped me make a decisions on 450cc up to 525 cc on day of surgery. We looked at breast augmentations with and without lifts so I could determine if I wanted a lift at this time or later. We went over all post -op information and realistic expectations and results. Amy is still helping me during recovery by answering my questions by email and phone. After and during my surgery Dr. Trovato and his medical staff contacted my husband by cell several times to let him know where they were during procedure and my status. Dr. Trovato has a great bed side manner and chooses great facilities for his surgeries. Just like all other MD's, PS's etc…you don't get to know the person as well as you want due to time, etc…but you just know when your PS is talented when he/she marks on you before surgery like a canvas looking for body asymmetry and is aggressive during the lipo process. I am so impressed and can't believe I am healing so quickly. I was psyching myself out for the same kind of pain I had with my VSG but I was pleasantly surprised. After my first 7 day post-op, my husband and I went shopping at IKEA…..and did I mention I am 41…..Great Experience …I will post more photos soon.

He was so funny! He asked me what I was concerned about and took care of it and then some! He had me and my friend cracking up the whole time too! Not too shabby looking either ;)
Dr Trovato was amazing. I met with him and immediately knew he was the one to perform my surgery. The morning of the surgery I prayed and when Dr. Trovato came in he talked with me and as he marked the areas, I felt as if I was a blank canvas and he was skillfully drawing the new me. I am almost 3 weeks post surgery and I feel great. I still have swelling but I know that will take time. I have already made referrals. I must include his office staff is "AMAZING!"

Professional, intelligent, comical. He knows his stuff has a bit of OCD about him...which if you ask me, would you want a plastic surgeon that isnt OCD. Not this Girl!
