33 Year Old With Tummy Tuck and Muscle Repair... Best Thing I Ever Did!! - Houston, TX

A little about me! I'm a 33 year old mother of one...tried for another just never happened. Not to mention my one was 10lbs 22inches. He ruined my body.

Dr Layton and his staff are amazing! The best experience I've had with a doctor. His nurses, anesthesiologist, and his surgical assistant Renée are awesome! I wasn't an easy case and look forward to getting more things done!

5 out of 5 stars Body Lift

35 Year Old with 2 Kids - Kerrville, TX

I could not have asked for a better surgeon than Dr. Layton! We has an eye for detail and doesn't try to sell you on more than you come in for.

He is indeed the best plastic surgeon you could ask for, as I had my tummy tuck and breast implants done elsewhere. I wish I had known about Dr....
