5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Highly recommended!! Look 20 again!!

Full body make over, breast lift and tummy tuck after weight loss surgery. I lost 95 pounds with my weight loss surgery, leaving me with some extra skin and a much needed breast lift. I can not believe my results, flat stomach and my chest looks like I am 20 again. Dr. Linville is very professional, best bedside manner and the most caring doctor I have met. Highly recommend!!!!

Look No Further; You've Found the Best!

If you are in need of a fantastic plastic surgeon, then look no further! Dr. Linville is the cream of the crop! I was recently diagnosed with Breast Cancer and had to undergo a mastectomy and would need breast reconstruction. I was scared and afraid and didn't know what to expect. However, Dr. Linville changed all of that. He assured me that all would be well and that he would make me good as...

40 Years Old, Much Needed Tummy Tuck - Houston, TX

Since my first visit to Dr. Linville's office, his entire staff made me feel super comfortable. He explained in detail the procedure and what he expected the outcome to be. He knows exactly what he's doing, he answered all my concerns. I am very impressed in his professionalism. The entire office staff is very friendly and courteous. I had the best experience ever before and after recovery. He took the time to visit me after procedure. Shows he really cares. My results are amazing. My husband and I are extremely happy with my new look. Wouldn't go anywhere else. Highly recommended! :) THANK YOU. Great Team Work.

5 out of 5 stars Lower Face Lift

"63 Y/o Wanting a Neck and Lower Face Lift to Restore a Youthfulness to my Skin and Overall Appearance. - Ohio State University

I would highly recommend Dr. Cain Linville to anyone who wants plastic surgery. Artistic is the word that describes Dr. Linville's ability as a surgeon. I am truly amazed at the end results. Not only is he artistic in turning back the "hands of time", he's eye for detail is impeccable. From the beginning, Dr. Linville included me in all decisions concerning my surgery. We had many meetings discussing what was involved. He used drawings and videos to show me exactly what was going to happen from start to finish ( he was " On Call" 24/7 to answer any and all questions I had). His professional and "bedside manner" places him at the top of his field. He impressed me with his concerns about what I was expecting from this surgery. His knowledge and foresight made it so easy to trust him to ensure that I was happy with the results. And he exceeded my expectations. Dr. Linville has since moved to Houston, Texas, but when I decide to have any other plastic surgeries, I will go to Houston to have them done. I am so impressed with his talent and "Doctor/Patient" interaction that he is the only doctor I would trust to do any plastic surgery that I elect to have done. I am so happy with the outcome that I can truly say he is the only plastic surgeon I would recommend. He is a "Five Star" physician and surgeon.

5 out of 5 stars Cellfina

45 Years Old, Have Tried Celluzase and Still Have Huge Dimples. I Am Praying Cellfina Works - Houston, TX

Dr. Linville was very professional. Made me feel at ease while he marked all the areas that had cellulite, which appeared like my whole butt. He explained the process before and during since I was awake. I was glad he did not mind me videotaping the procedure

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Love my result!

This was one of the best decisions I made for myself. I have always wanted to have a breast augmentation but talked myself out of it time and time again. After having 2 kids and turning 50 this year, I did it! I love my result! Dr Linville and his staff helped me choose the appropriate size and type of implant to fit my active lifestyle. They actually listen to you and want to help you...
