5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

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

After losing almost 25 lbs & still not seeing a flat stomach is what inspired me to get this procedure done.. My results are amazing! I feel great and very sexy. It boost my confidence.

I had a bilateral breast reduction with liposuction and Dr. Linville was amazing throughout the entire process. From the first consultation appointment to the last post op appointment he was awesome. Answered my questions and never made me feel ashamed. Always made me feel very comfortable at all times. Even checked on me after the surgery. I never had an issue with pain or sensitivity...

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 wanted to restore my skin and appearance to a more youthful look. Since my skin still had good elasticity and not many wrinkles I decided this would be a good time to have the procedures done rather than waiting another 5-6 yrs. The best decision was that I chose Dr. Cain Linville to do the surgery. The procedure, I feel made me look 15-20 yrs younger. Choosing to do the surgery at 63 was...

5 out of 5 stars Cellfina

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

Excited when I saw this procedure on tv. Terrified due to some reviews that the numbing process was very painful. I finally went in and Dr. Linville and the ladies were AWESOME! ! Pain level for me was maybe a 2 out of 10. I was even able to video Dr. Linville numbing one side and then was able to video the actual procedure. I was so comfortable, I am almost worried it may not have done much...

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...

33 Yrs Old, 1 Kid, 2 Yrs Post Gastric Sleeve - Houston, TX

My motivation for this procedure was to better myself for me to increase my self confidence and feel comfortable in my own skin after having the gastric sleeve and going from 235lbs to 155lbs my stomach was flabby I was ashamed to even look at myself in the mirror. Now I am 5 wks post op and so thankful I had the Mini Tummy Tuck all the saggy skin is gone.

Don't wait its worth it!

Wonderful experience , so glad I chose Dr. Linville to do this Cellfina procedure. The results are amazing and it has only been a few weeks out. I enjoyed the consultation, he really tries to find out what your wanting accomplished. Love the staff, they have followed up to see if I was comfortable and happy throughout the recovery. You need about two full days to recover after the procedure....
