5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Wonderful experience!

Dr. Meade is personable, friendly and takes his time with you to make sure that you know exactly what you want and therefore he knows what you want. He made the process so easy and comfortable for me. He did a remarkable job and somehow managed to give me a cleavage that I didn't have before. Dr. Meade went out of his way to explain everything to my husband after surgery. His...

I could not be happier with my results!

I had an amazing experience with Dr. Meade and his team. He has a great bedside manner and really worked with me to make sure I would be satisfied with the size and type of implant I chose. I wanted to feel full and feminine without looking top heavy, and he listened to all of my concerns and helped me choose the perfect size. My only regret is not having this done sooner! My recovery was...

My Best Decision! Explant After 35 Years - 63 Yrs Old – 300CC Silicone - Subglandular – No Lift – Dallas, TX

I would not hesitate for a minute on recommending Dr. Meade to anyone contemplating plastic surgery. My initial intuition told me that he was the best plastic surgeon in Dallas for me, and I couldn't be happier with the results of my surgery explant surgery and scar revision. Dr. Meade listens to your concerns and does not try to talk you into something you do not want. I would do it all over again! Thank you Dr. Meade, Trish, Lisa, Becky and Angela

My recovery was phenomenal and I am so happy with my results!! His staff is wonderful...

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Enjoying my new shape!

Looking for high quality care and artistic ability led me to Dr. Meade. There are so many doctors to choose from in the Dallas area and being a nurse, I have to say that I believe Dr. Meade is the best. He has an uncanny ability to make everything look so natural. I trusted him so much that I told him, “I don’t care what you do, as long as you make it look right.” His staff is absolutely wonderful. Janie, in the front office, is so personable and always a joy to speak with. Becky, who handles OR scheduling and paperwork, covered every detail and worked a miracle with the OR schedule so that I could return to work by a certain date. Chris, his nurse, was always readily available for any question and very knowledgeable. The OR staff, anesthesiologist, and the facility itself was great and I can’t thank them enough. Dr. Meade’s ability to do great work and his awesome support staff exceeded my highest expectations!

He's, Hands Down, THE BEST! -Dallas, TX

This guy rocks. I've had a lot of Doctors in and out of my life. By far, he surpassed all if them. He's so nice, personable, and really appears to care. On the other side, he will spend a lot of time talking to you about what you really want, so he understands and knows what to do for you. Here is a song reference, my apologies for those that never heard this artist. If I was gonna go pop some tags, I would want to take Dr. MEADE with me because he is EFF'N AWESOME!! Seriously, pick him. HE'S THE BEST!!!!!!! Ignore my crazy song reference, if that helps.

Dr. M was amazing! He personally responded to my emails prior to even seeing me or knowing whether I was serious about the procedure or not and that says a lot. He explained everything in detail was able to answer any ?'s or concerns I had. He was very honest and didn't set unrealistic goals. His office staff is incredibly sweet, supportive and helpful!
