5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

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

I saw 3 surgeons prior to deciding on Dr. Layton. I knew right away he was the one! He and his staff made me feel so comfortable, even in uncomfortable situations. I felt he was the most competent surgeon I was going to find. 19 years of experience! I looked through books and books of pre and post op photos and his scars are beautiful, and even spoke with ladies who had the same procedure with him. He has always answered every question I have had, and his nurse has gone above and beyond to make sure I'm confident in my decision! His nurse gave me her cell phone number and told me to call her with any questions. A few days after surgery I was having anxiety about a few things, wasn't sure if what I was experiencing was normal. I messages the nurse she called me right back and set my mind at ease! It is rare to find that level of care these days! I couldn't be happier with my results. Dr. Layton have given me back my self esteem! Best doctor ever!!!

1 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

Went in for Breast Lift Ended Up Getting Breast Augmentation - Pasadena, TX

The nurses are great but the doctor has made it clear to me over five years he is only concerned with money not his patients or any pain or suffering they go through.

5 out of 5 stars BodyTite

Body Tite on Breasts and Abdomen - Kerrville, TX

10 months after having a baby and diet and excercise I was unable to get rid of my baby weight gained in my abdomen area! My breast had also lost shape and were saggy! After visiting Dr. Laytons office in Kerrville, Tx for a consultation, he suggested body tite as the way to go! After a bit of research I decided to go with the procedure. It has been almost 2 months and my results have been...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

Complete Lift with 600cc Saline - Kerrville, TX

The best! 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 Laser Resurfacing

Dr. Layton is a excellent plastic surgeon he is very professional and takes the extra time to make you look the best you possibly can.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Amazing experience before, during, and after procedures - Houston, TX

Always professional, yet personable. I've had replacement breast augmentation, and my child has had otoplasty. If I let my child undergo surgery, you know he has to be the best! We are both very pleased with our results, as well as with the care and attention we received before and after surgery. Dr. Layton is our plastic surgeon for life.

5 out of 5 stars FaceTite

Facelift without surgery! Thank you Dr Layton!

When I heard about an injection that could eliminate the fat in my neck, I scheduled an appointment with Dr Layton to find out more. After Dr Layton examined my neck he was able to explain that the injection would dissolve fat, but would not address the bigger issue which was loose skin. I had no idea that was even the problem. He went on to explain the facetight procedure and the benefits....

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. However, if you ask his opinion, he gives it to you straight. And his nurses..... ARE FABULOUS!!!!!!! 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....
