5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Dr.L and his team are the greatest

Dr.LoMonaco has been the absolute best! His bedside manner is definitely one of the greatest I've seen and he truly shows he cares for his patients. He wants his patients to be completely comfortable and reassures you if you have any concerns. From my first consult to my follow ups I've never had an issue or complaints about him or his staff. The nurses Shayla and Destiny call you every day...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

No one compares to Dr. LoMonaco!

This wasn't my first rodeo with plastic surgeons. I have had two previous surgeons in the past and I feel qualified in saying Dr. LoMonaco is the cream of the crop! Aside from his gifted work, he's by far the best bedside manner I've ever experienced with ANY doctor and it's apparent how deeply he cares about his patients! My consultation was 2 hours long and I walked out feeling like an...

Extremely Satisfying Breast Augmentation

He is truly amazing. I received a breast augmentation. Dr L is truly vested in his patients health, happiness and is so thorough. I had a lot of different options for surgeons but traveled an hours time because his care and expertise was above the rest. His staff are so personable and definitely are attentive. Destiny and Shay made the whole experience enjoyable and I definitely will be back...

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Thanks to Dr. LoMonaco, I have my confidence back!

I LOVE Dr. LoMonaco and his lovely staff! I was so nervous about getting surgery before meeting them for the first time. When I left his office from my initial consultation, he definitely put my mind at ease and I booked my surgery the same day. I knew I was making the right choice by choosing Dr. LoMonaco as my surgeon. During your consultation he takes his time about explaining what you want...

Great experience, even better results! - Houston, TX

I set up a consultation with Dr. LoMonaco after a disappointing consultation with another doctor in my area. When I called, Vicki answered and set up the consultation. She was super friendly and helpful. At the consultation, I met with Destiny and Dr. LoMonaco. They were amazing -- put me at ease and answered all of my questions. I had a breast augmentation 10 years ago (by another doctor) and...

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

30 Yrs Old Mother of 4. - Houston, TX

One word. Exceptional. Dr Lomonaco is hands down the best plastic surgeon in Houston. From my first consultation to my surgery and thereafter has been a wonderful experience. He takes his time to explain to you what to expect and tells you what he thinks you need or dont need. Initially i wanted to get lipo on my back because i have a roll on my back that i did not like bit he told me it was not worth paying extra for that because after the tummy tuck the and even a 5 lbs weight loss the roll will be gone. He takes the time to listen and know exactly what you are expecting. For a very busy surgeon he tries to be as accessible to his patients as possible. On the day of surgery he gave my husband his cell phone number to call if he had any concerns. He is not about getting your money. He is very involved in aspect of your care. His team especially the nurses are awesome. Destiny and Chela called me everyday for two weeks after surgery. There are days when i had questions and i will call them late at night and they were always there for. It feels good to know that you have people on your side because that is major surgery and it can be scary but they made so easy. I will do it again in a heartbeat.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

I Had my Tummy Tuck Revised–-Houston, TX

Dr. is a very patient and informative doctor. He is very good with responding to any e-mail that is sent directly to him and he is the one that actually respondes back to you not his assistant. This doctor take the time to listen to what you have to say and takes everything into consideration and doesn't just ignore the issue. The staff is very friendly and are very promt with returning any phone calls. Not to mention after surgery his nurse will call you everyday to check up and just to make sure you do not need anything.

5 out of 5 stars Body Lift

I finally chose Dr LoMonaco, he was the 2nd Dr I consulted with...

Dr John LoMonaco is an EXPERT in his field. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about him and his team. His patience, bedside manners, personality and his desire to help others, along with his wonderful team makes the whole journey, a very positive and satisfactory one. When you are going to go through a complicated procedure like a body lift, you have to very careful, do your homework and pick THE BEST, and the best is Dr LoMonaco.
