"I am excited to be able to feel my hands again, turn my neck without pain, hold me babies without numbness in my arms, and to get back to all the activities I enjoyed!..." "One week before my surgery, insurance declined the surgery saying they wanted me within 20% of my ideal weight though I qualified in every other way."

38H to a 38D Pain Free and Mommy Can Play More - Texas

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Love My New Look! - Tyler, TX

On the internet. If anyone out there is worried or have concerns about this procedure I am confident in the staff and doctor at Tyler Plastic Surgery!! They were so welcoming and informative and the results have been amazing!!

Excellent Surgeon

He is amazing - he has a very positive attitude and caring nature. He will at least try to fix the damage done by others I haver been to two other plastic surgeons and Dr. Motlagh is by far the best. He is the most caring and strives for patient comfort. He even gives in to my quirks, which I appreciate. The last plastic surgeon caused several problems and I am having Dr. Motlagh repair the damage. I trust him immensely. He already fixed one problem caused by another surgeon and did a superb job. I also plan on having Dr. Motlagh fix my legs and repair the tummy tuck damage from the last surgeon.

5 out of 5 stars Scars Treatment

Fixing my Back Butt - Tyler, TX

Thankfully, I found Dr. Motlagh in Tyler who is so phenomenal and unbelievable. He repaired the double butt or back butt by carefully removing the bulging tissue. He also did the liposuction which gave my back a very pleasing look. He is absolutely amazing and I am thrilled by the results.

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Scheduled my Juvederm Tear Trough Fill and Want to Chronicle It - Tyler, TX

Ive always had bags under my eyes and very pronounced cheek bones. Due to a divorce and all that it entails, this last year has taken a toll on me. Not being vain at all, but im not a bad looking guy. I just dont feel comfortable going out anywhere without a cap or cowboy hat due to overhead lighting making me look like i got into a fight. Ive enjoyed some of the chronicles here that follow...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

A Great Life-fulfilling Experience - Tyler, TX

Dr. Matlogh at Tyler Plastic surgery was a great decision when I decided to get a breast reduction. His office especially his resciptionist Adrienna were great and there attention to detail was impeccable. I am more than satisfied with my results and the care afterward helped drastically. I appreciate everything Dr. Matlogh and his team did for me.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Removal

Nomoreplastic - Tyler, TX

I visited several in the Tyler area and in Dallas. Doctor Motlagh had such an amazing bedside manner and took the time to listen to my needs not letting ego get in the way. His staff has been great in answering my questions however silly they may seem. He wasn't the cheapest by any means but I have piece of mind. I will share pictures of the masterpiece he creates. In the OR yesterday Dr. Motlagh held my hand until I went under which was only the blink of an eye but what a comfort that was. Thank you Doc
