5 out of 5 stars Facelift
Dr. McClellan is a well-educated, experienced plastic surgeon. He's also very personable and just a darn nice guy. He told me up front that he would be conservative with the surgery. He said he wanted me to look like me, just better. That's exactly what I wanted. That's exactly what I got.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants
While I was researching this procedure I did a lot of googling and came across this site. I have read a bit of everything, even some very sad and scary ex-plant stories as well as some sad implant stories. Not going to lie, it definitely turned me off wanting to get implants for a while that's for sure. Through all my googling and research I was able to come up with some great questions for my...
5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
Dr. McClellan did a wonderful job genuinely listening to my concerns and it shows because he couldn’t have done a better job at delivering exactly what I wanted. I wanted to make sure that I wouldn’t have that “overdone” plastic surgery look and that I would still look like "me"... just better. Even my closest friends haven’t even picked up on the fact I’ve had rhinoplasty done...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
Awful "deflated" boobs. Starting a new life, wedding next year & need a boost in my self-esteem. Always hated my tiny flat boobs... Seems like such an extreme move but wearing "adds 2 sizes" bras is not only "weird" looking, it's kind of cheating. I also would like to wear a shirt with a low back or a lace back & no tacky bra straps showing! To me, "sexy" is a woman with curves and that...
He seems great spent alot of time answering all my questions and discussing options and opinions risks ect. I really enjoyed the visit today. Excited to have this performed by him.
5 out of 5 stars Sientra Breast Implants
I recently had my breast augmentation and I couldn't be happier with the results. I went with the Sientra textured round implants and the end result is exactly what I was hoping for. I had some swelling and slight brusinig after surgery but post op swelling was gone by 3 weeks. I've posted a couple pics a few hours after surgery and at 18 days. I've gotten a few requests for updated pics on...

Caveat Emptor = Latin for, "Let the buyer beware". Unfortunately cosmetic surgery is essentially the wild west, Plastic Surgery: The Wild West of Medicine , with very few if any restrictions or oversight as to who may operate on you. Many patients are surprised to learn that any medical doctor, regardless of training, can legally perform "plastic surgery" and call her or himself a "plastic surgeon". Although their name may be listed under Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in the Yellow...
By W. Thomas McClellan MD FACS I often get stopped in the hospital, on the street, or even in StarBucks to look at moles. Patients want to know if a mole is dangerous and what they should do about it. Can I remove the mole? Should they see their dermatologist? What is the best option? I will address the skin cancer as a whole in another blog post but wanted to talk specifics about Moh's Surgery, reconstruction of the resultant defect, and the importance of a close knit team in order...
