i had a tummy tuck in june2013. i am 4mos post op. i love the results!!!! Dr White did an amazing job. I had lost in the past year over 120lbs and with the birth of my children did not have the stomach that i wanted. Dr White is so amazing as a surgeon. We had a four hour consultation which was informative. Dr white took the time to go over the procedure and answer any question that my husband or i had. Surgery is a big risk and he is of the mind set know what you are getting into and be prepared. He does just that. i had so many of them and he is very patient and kind with all of my concerns. The scaring was what i was most concerned with in the beginning, now the scarline you can barely see it. The scar creme is working wonders. The thing that surprised me the most was the shape of my new body. I feel so much better after a run and knowing i do not have an extra stomach of skin to carry around. i felt like the surgery was the icing on the cake. I could not be any happier with the results. Some of the benefits that i did not expect was additional 20lb weight loss. Also i now have definition and a waistline! That is what i liked the most. Everyday is a new day! I highly recommend Dr White and his staff. They are on call 24/7 and will answer any question you have. i highly recommend Dr White and his staff!! More

There came a point in my life when my children were grown and I was able to think about myself first. I still felt young but my body didn?t match the way I felt. Going through multiple pregnancies had left the skin on my stomach loose and scarred with stretch marks. Also, no amount of exercise could tighten my damaged abs. I never wanted anyone to see my stomach. When I decided to have a tummy tuck, I started researching doctors. I poured over the before and after pictures in my area but was not overly excited about their results. So I broadened my search to Dallas. After interviewing several doctors there, I felt most comfortable entrusting my body to Dr. Steven White. He is a perfectionist and has the aesthetic of an artist. He is very experienced and double board certified. He and his staff spend as much time as you need explaining the procedure and recovery. They have videos for you to watch and literature to read. Abdominoplasty is serious surgery. Recovery takes time, but you will be up and leading a normal life in just a few weeks. I was fortunate to have a husband who was willing to take time off from work to care for me after my surgery. I stayed in Dallas just over a week and then returned periodically for check-ups. Dr. White is a perfectionist and it is important to follow his instructions but he is there for you every step of the way. He came to my hospital room the evening of my surgery and got me up for my first walk. He was on one side of me and my husband on the other and they made sure that I completed the circuit. He leaves nothing to chance and is very concerned about every patient. It has been almost a year now and I am so glad that I did it. I wish I had done it sooner. My tummy is flat and my skin smooth. The scar is thin, flat and in the process of fading. It is slightly pink now but will be a white line in few months. I also have a new and cute belly button. My body finally matches the way I feel. I even wore a bikini last summer. I am no longer embarrassed about my body. More

Absolutely love Dr. White and the whole team!!! I had been morbidly obese most of my life. Found a trainer, went through all the hard work of diet and exercise for about 4 years and at the end I was super happy with being smaller and wearing smaller sizes, being able to move and being athletic. HOWEVER... I had a LOT of extra skin. Every time I saw it it made me feel fat. It looked gross and considering all the work I had put in... it still looked like I didn't work out. Fact is, there is a point where you cannot diet / exercise certain things away, and that's where I was. I also had decided during this process that I wanted to compete in fitness and all that pudgy looking extra skin would have to go. So I did lots of research, talked to lots of surgeons' offices/docs and read about choosing a surgeon, looked at before & after pics and started to notice that results were not the same some looked kinda bad even though they were promoting their results. I worked really hard to have abs, I wanted them to show! I wanted a well placed incision so I could wear a bikini, and it was getting kinda scary... then I found Dr White's website. As a side note: If you are going to a Plastic Surgeon, you are spending a good deal of money for a voluntary procedure. You should be treated a certain amount of special, not primadona special but special. Some Dallas docs treat you slightly or not even better than a free clinic. Pretty sure Dr. White ends up fixing their work ;-) Okay, so here's why I love the whole Dr White practice: Every person is a professional and is caring and concerned about your mental and physical well being. Jennifer painstakingly lays out all the prep work before your surgery so you know what to do, have on hand and expect! Never seen this before, ever! Whenever you call Jasmine, Jennifer, everyone... all super helpful and knowledgeable. Even the surgical team who you really only consciously spend a few minutes with are awesome and memorable! How does one man pull such an amazing team together? Okay about Dr. White: he is a perfectionist, and who doesn't want that in a plastic surgeon?!?!?! He is brilliant, witty, enthusiastic and so caring. I was scared about having this surgery but I knew I would lose motivation to workout everyday and eat the way I needed to if I didn't get rid of the icky extra skin and lax tone of my midsection. When I visited Dr. White they were honest and clear about where my head needed to be and that I should be able to maintain my weight to follow through. I had checked the after pics and he was the ONLY surgeon who had tummy tuck patients with contour on their abs and midsection... the ONLY one! I was shocked! I had worked too hard to develop strong abs for them to never show! BTW, every step of the way, my husband was looking over my shoulder to make sure that I was not taking chances or being reckless in any way with my health. So when we met Dr. White and both felt he was the Doc for me, that was a HUGE hurdle! I was scared to have any surgery and Dr White and the ladies there made me realize that was kinda silly, the worrying was on them, the prep and healing parts were my part, with their assistance. The perfectionist in Dr White is amazing and consistent, in your visits in the office, the OR and hospital. The hospital staff is even aware of his perfectionism, great results and detail to every single procedure including getting you out of bed with this procedure. The incision is perfectly placed, my stomach has never looked better, there were some extra bonuses to my procedure that make me super tickled with the results. I am so very happy with my midsection that I recently went back to Dr White to have my eyes and brow lifted. If you are considering a tummy tuck at whatever age (did I mention I'm 56?) be sure to check out Dr White and his team. More

Dr. Steven J. White, Doc of Ageless (mine) I scheduled a tummy tuck July 2010, in Tyler, Texas. Thank goodness, my THEN husband and family threw a SHOE, and I cancelled. 210 lbs later (divorced husband), I did some thorough research and 'discovered' Dr. White. As demanding on himself and he is on me, Dr. White is not an easy task master. However, I am sooo thankful my former husband and family were so completely against the surgery in 2010. Tummy Tuck? No, not really. I believe that Dr. White should rename his procedure...maybe Total Torso Transformation. (come on, he IS an artist, after all). This surgery is not for everyone. Only the dedicated should venture here. However, I am so glad that I did. The office staff is attentive, and responsive to all gripping, complaining, and grumbling. They are also GREAT encouragers. My surgery was May 21 - it is June 7th... and I still have a few months to go to appreciate the final results. But today... Thank you Dr. White, Jennifer, Jasmine, ALL office staff, and the hospital staff at the Texas Institute of Surgery. You KNOW how I talk.... D'Laine Shipp More

I was completely afraid to have plastic surgery because of any complication that could occur. Dr. White was most informative about what could go wrong and what he does to predict and prevent those things. This put me at ease. I knew three people who had successful surgeries with Dr. White and highly recommended him. I had a tummy tuck and am thrilled with the results. I have 5 children and had gotten into good shape, but couldn't change some of the problems with my body. The loose skin I had is gone and my stomach is flat. I feel great! Additional weight loss has been an added bonus to this surgery. I would completely recommend Dr. White and this surgery. More

Abdominoplasty procedure- I must confess that you get what you pay for! Dr. White and his staff, as well as, the hospital staff were superb! The biggest obstacle for me prior to having this surgery was the cost and whether the cost was going to yield the results that I was expecting. Yes, the before and after pictures of others were definitely helpful, the factor of the "unknown" lingered out there in space. Now post 3 weeks from surgery, I find myself tortured by the "minimizing movement" component when I feel perfectly fine. I understand the necessity of such requirements, but it is hard to remember. I am mesmerized by the dramatic body change noticeable immediately after surgery and am happily content with the results. I found Dr. White while browsing through an airline magazine announcing the "Top 10 Plastic Surgeons". I took note of his website and immediately began researching his technique. I was amazed that every surgeon that I had researched had a different approach than Dr. White. I knew the risks and challenges that I would face but felt confident of his thoroughness and consideration for my well-being. It goes without saying that Dr. White grows on you.....for first impressions are misleading but in a good way. One could assume he is an arrogant and obnoxious surgeon, yet during that consultation visit, you realize that he is "this" way because he is so proud and caring of his work and patients. Would I recommend Dr. White and this procedure to others? Most definitely!!! BUT, I would include in the pictorial display at the initial consultation that the black bikini panties are not included in the price (hence they are cropped in). Now, I feel obligated to admit that if you think you will get by with something or try to make deals with him....you will be sorely mistaken for he takes his work and patients' health seriously. There is nothing negative to say regarding the procedure or doctor. The procedure itself was what I expected but the results on myself, were far better than I expected! Thanks for the transformation and support! More

After a failed tummy tuck, I was very reluctant to have a revision to correct the horrible job that another physician had done. My husband had been listening to Dr. White's radio program for approximately a year and seeing his colleagues vote him the number one plastic surgeon in Texas. I now know WHY he has such high regard by his fellow colleagues. He is absolutely awesome!! I come from the medical field so that speaks volumes for Dr. White! He not only corrected the past mistake but made my tummy look better than it has in 28 years and after two kids!! I feel proud to be able to wear those tights that others are able to wear. And I have never met a more professional, caring and confident staff and physician. They are everything that other medical offices and all physicians should aspire to be. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. White to my colleagues, patients, friends, family or any one else who asks. I can't thank you, Dr. White and staff, enough! More

Before I had my abdominoplasty, I did a great deal of research on the subject matter. The primary thing I was focused on was having the best outcome possible, from a highly skilled surgeon. The more research I did, the more Dr. White's name came up. I was fortunate to have known another one of his patients who had the same procedure. She provided me with details about her experience, which just reinforced what I had already read. It was comforting to know that he is an extremely skilled surgeon, but we quickly came to realize that he is more than just a "perfectionist" in his work, he is also compassionate, and truly caring about his patients. Dr. White always made my husband and me feel like we were supported (clinically and emotionally) throughout the entire process - we were well educated (before and after), he was always available for questions, and his bedside manner is beyond expectations - sincere, caring, and always looking for what is best for YOU. I am SO pleased with my results. I have had several children, with the last child being 10lb/9oz - emergency C-section, and a lot of abdominal damage that no exercise routine could ever take away (I tried). I had lived with this for 25 years and always longed to have my body back and to be able to wear the clothes I liked. I would have been absolutely thrilled to be in a size 10 at the end of all this...I would have been over the moon to be a size 8... I never would have imagined in my wildest dreams that I would end up a slim size 6 - happy, healthy, and confident! Shopping is now fun again - no more trying to find things to camouflage my stomach....I even bought two bikini's. I look fantastic! I cannot adequately express in words the feeling I have everyday. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. White. If you are thinking about having any procedure done, don't risk just any surgeon - this is your body, and you want to get it right the first time! .....just have a consultation and see for yourself that the reviews are all true - you will be glad you did.

I'd been considering a tummy tuck for years. As the years passed, I started thinking I was too old to worry with it anymore. At 45, I made the decision to have my bikini body back and I'm thrilled. I have a flat contoured tummy and the cutest belly button that looks better than it ever did! I was leery of the surgery because of the long recovery and of course the drains. The recovery is long but goes much faster and easier when Dr. Whites directions are followed. The drains are absolutely NO BIG DEAL! I feel silly having worried so much about them. I'm very glad I had the tummy tuck and wish I'd done it sooner. More

I am 55 and have wanted a tummy tuck for years. I had scheduled an appointment with a plastic surgeon years before but just couldn't make the decision to follow thru. I was very concerned about possible complications from surgery and being under anesthesia for a long period of time. A friend of mine recently used Dr. White and loved him. She couldn't say enough about how thrilled she was with Dr. White and his office staff. She calmed my fears and I knew it was now or never so I decided to schedule an appointment for a consultation. Dr. White and his staff answer all your questions and more. I knew after meeting with him I would be in good hands. Dr. White has a proven process that minimizes the discomfort during recovery and virtually assures a good outcome. He is especially strong on follow up after surgery. Both in the hospital and afterwards. I don't believe you will find many doctors that will come to the hospital at 11:00 pm to be the first one to get you out of bed after surgery and walk with you up and down the halls like Dr. White. He truly cares about his patients. I am 11 weeks post op and extremely pleased with my results. If you are considering plastic surgery of any kind give Dr. W a visit and you will leave knowing you have found your doctor. More

I had an appendectomy and a hysterectomy when I was much younger and over the years as I aged the tone of my abdomen in conjunction with these scars left me very self-conscious. No matter how thin I was or how much exercise I did - my abdomen looked awful. Having had two abdominal surgeries left me hesitant to have another surgery due to the painful recovery period. I was your typical window shopper for surgeons looking in all the magazines for just the right one! I came across Dr. White and made an appointment for a consultation. I loved his thorough approach, meticulous attention to details and his overall anal retentive??? attitude. If you are going to have this type of surgery you don???t want anything else! There were concerns regarding viability of skin around the prior surgical scars but Dr. White performed a beautiful abdominoplasty and I never had any issues. Today, now 3 months out, I have a beautifully tight and sculpted abdomen. I no longer hide behind big tops or focus on a negative but rather look at my tight and ribbed stomach with awe! It is a beautiful outcome! Make no mistake abdominal surgery is rough but the results are worth it! You can???t find a better surgeon - and he is as excited as you are at the outcome! More

What a wonderful life changing experience. I worked so hard to get healthy and Dr. White made every second worthwhile. I was afraid that the result would not live up to my expectations, but it has and more. The decision to undergo surgery was not undertaken lightly, but after a lot of research I went for it. My abdominoplasty while a bit scary, was perfect. There are so many great benefits. I continue to increase my fitness in the gym doing more and more fun activities I couldn?t have done otherwise. I went on vacation and took a half dozen bikinis and wore them all. Something I haven?t done in many years. I can?t wait to work with Dr. White again for some additional procedures. I would never see another surgeon and would recommend anyone thinking of undergoing plastic surgery to use Dr. White. His office staff is the best and I just love him to pieces! More

Dr. White is a perfectionist in every way! Here's why he should be the ONLY plastic surgeon you should ever see... He makes you feel comfortable and at ease in every phase of care. He will answer questions and explain his methods of precision surgery. He sees every patient as an individual and will sculpt your body and transform it into the best version of you. I've had a tummy tuck and liposuction procedures with Dr. White and my results are better than I could've imagined. With these procedures, he transformed my entire torso and thighs and they look better now than in my twenties. Fun fact: I had over twenty pairs of jeans in my closet and now I can only wear three of them. Those three pairs were way in the back that I never thought I'd get back into. Let's just say I've enjoyed shopping for new things, including bikinis! Most importantly, he does all of this with a smile and a big hug! He is genuinely as excited about your results as you are.

Dr. While expertly performed my tummy tuck and thigh liposuction 6 weeks ago. The results amazing! I decided to have a tummy tuck and thigh liposuction because after having my child a year ago, I lost every single pregnancy pound, was back down to a size 4/6, and still my body simply didn?t look like it did before I got pregnant. I lost my waist line, the skin on my tummy was loose and unattractive, and I had a pooch? below my belly button that wasn?t going to go away with diet and exercise. I did a lot of research before selecting Dr. White as my surgeon, and I am so glad I did. Dr. White?s academic and professional credentials speak volumes for themselves, and his results do the same. His love of art and his huge passion for what he does show in his surgical results. I have never seen more beautiful hour-glass before and after results photos from any surgeon anywhere. Now, I too have a lovely hour-glass shape, a very flat tummy, and perfectly tight skin -- and my surgery was only 6 weeks ago. I can already tell that my tummy tuck scar is going to be an ultra-thin white line when it is finished healing. As unbelievable as it may sound, I did not have any bruising on my thighs after my liposuction thanks to his precise tools and expert skill. In a word Dr. White is a perfectionist. He not only cares about how great your results look, but he also really cares about your health as well. His post-surgery and follow-up care have been very thorough, and he takes eve More

I had a breast augmentation and tummy tuck two years ago and could not be happier with the results. After having two kids I was resigned to the fact that fitted clothing, and especially bikinis, were a thing of the past. (I nursed my children for a long time. It was the right thing to do although it turned my breasts into deflated balloons.) I just felt that pushup bras and the loose-around-the-waist attire were what I had to accept and that was simply a part of growing older. I almost didn't pursue plastic surgery because I was scared of pain and a big scar. I was also scared about looking fake; I appreciate a very natural elegance and want to appear as if I just exercise and have good genes. Everyone has heard the scary stories about the sub-optimal results some people have to live with. I would not have moved forward with the procedures, which were both performed in one surgery, if I had not felt 100% comfortable with Dr. White. After my extremely thorough consultation, I realized that he had thought through every aspect of the surgery and recovery, and all the things I should do to have the best possible outcome. This man is artistic and meticulous and that's an understatement. When I met with Dr. White and saw all his before/after pictures, heard his approach, and knew he was thoroughly committed to the best result, I signed up for my procedures. Before the surgery, some family members and friends were very worried when they heard "tummy tuck". But I was back at work in More

I?m four weeks post-op from a tummy tuck and the feeling I get when I look into the mirror can?t adequately be described with words?but I?ll try. Eight years ago, I lost my husband in an accident while seven months pregnant. After I had my son, I dealt with my grief by overeating, and before I knew it, I was 100 pounds overweight. Once I was able to regain my focus and commitment to bettering myself; I lost the weight, found love again, married, and had another child. Fast-forward to the present, and the weight loss coupled with the effects of two pregnancies left a notable impression on my mid-section. With lots of extra skin and a tummy? that wasn?t going away on its own, I started researching tummy tucks. I met with several doctors and felt they could do a good job, but something still didn?t feel 'right'. Once I met Dr. White, not only did it feel 'right' to have him perform my surgery, it felt as if he had been placed in my life for a reason. At my initial consultation, he spent over an hour with me answering questions, squelching concerns and describing at great length exactly what I could expect with the operation. He never over-promised, but I knew after our conversation that he was the right doctor for me and I felt very confident that I would get fantastic results. This isn?t the same procedure you get with other doctors. He took painstaking, meticulous steps to ensure the outcome was as flawless as humanly possible. Dr. White has a gift; he weaves artistry an More

I have been on a weight loss "journey" for YEARS! I was just about to finally reach my goals when my husband and I were surprised with a pregnancy and double surprised with TWINS! I had an amazingly healthy pregnancy and the twins couldn't be healthier, but my body . . .not so much. To say the least it was devastated by the weight loss and by carrying the twins full term. I had researched Doctors for over two years and kept coming back to Dr. Steven White; his qualifications and results were untouchable. I was still very apprehensive about all the details, such as pain, recovery period and results. I truly did not know if anyone could really make a difference in regards to the visual damage my body had seen. Let me just say from start to end my experience was PHENOMENAL! I initially thought I would require liposuction and a tummy tuck. However, after my consultation and meeting with Dr. White, he determined I would only need a tummy tuck. Dr. White's tummy tuck's are not like any others! He performs extensive re-contouring of your entire abdomen, which eliminates the need for additional liposuction! Dr. White, his staff and my stay at the hospital was amazing! The details and information they provided before hand literally took all fears and apprehensions away! The pain . . well, being a baby about pain, I can honestly say I left the hospital just taking Tylenol! My Gaul bladder surgery was a much more painful recovery; and let me tell you, Dr. White performs miracles! It's only been a little over a month and when I look in the mirror I cry! I can not believe my results! I don't even look like the same person and I'm still a little swollen! As far as being able to get back to my busy life with 3 kiddos, I'm back to my regular self! Did I mention it's only been about 5 weeks! Dr. White has given me a new lease on life and that to me is PRICELESS! To anyone considering any type of cosmetic procedure, Dr. White is the ONLY person to go to, bar none! More

Since 2006 I've been wanting to get a breast augmentation but never really knew where to begin to look. After several years of looking around for a doctor I finally ran into Dr. White. In 2009 I found him online, read his reviews and looked at several of his before and after pictures. I decided to make an appointment with him, upon arrival the entire staff made me feel welcomed. I thought I knew what size I wanted but Dr. White recommended a size for me, so I went along with it. After the surgery was over, I was pleased to see that Dr. White would still check up on me to make sure everything was moving smoothly. Finally the day came when I was able to take off the bandages/bra. WOW WOW WOW, that's all I could think, I was completely astonished with the results. 3 years later in 2012 I went back to get a tummy tuck and liposuction under my chin; again the results were incredible. I didn't have any doubts going in because I knew he was going to do a great job. My family was impressed with results, so much that my fiance got a rhinoplasty and liposuction, my nephew had liposuction done, as well. All with excellent results. I would not doubt returning to him for anything in the future. I would greatly recommend anyone to go with him for anything they need done. I still go back with him to get botox!!! More

Recently, at my son's wedding, I received so many compliments on my appearance, and I have Dr. White to thank for that. After much deliberation and poring over plastic surgeon websites and reviews, I made an appointment to see Dr. White about a tummy tuck. He spent a long time with me discussing the procedure and the results I could expect as well as answering all the questions I had. In addition, he explained why his sculpted tummy tuck procedure is different from other tummy tuck procedures and why it results in a sculpted waist as well as a flat tummy. The before and after photos of patients were impressive, but it was his attention to detail and his concern for his patients that persuaded me that he was the doctor I wanted to perform my surgery. The sculpted tummy tuck is a long and difficult surgery, but the results are amazing. I am 61 years old, and I feel prettier and sexier than I have since my twenties. My only regret is that I waited so long to have the surgery. More

When I decided to start my own company, I thought about what I needed to do to be the public figure representing it. Addressing my body that had changed significantly after 2 kids, was one of the main things on the list. Out of everything I've done to "re brand" myself -nothing has had such an immediate impact on my self worth and confidence as the tummy tuck Dr White performed. I carefully considered the obstacles - the cost, the recuperation time, the risks involved. After speaking with Dr White I was less concerned about the risks and I felt the cost was fair for the care and outcome Dr White achieves. The recovery was hard- more difficult than after a C-section. For me it took 2 full weeks to feel like I could resume work for a few hours a day but everyone recovers at different speeds. Having said that, I would do it again. The results are life changing. I still can't believe that this is my new body. I chose Dr White because of his advanced techniques and his passion for achieving the absolute best results for each patient. I have to say- he exceeded my high expectations. My stomach, that use to resemble a big semi deflated balloon, is now flat and sculpted. I've lost 12 lbs since the surgery, in addition to the 12 I lost pre-opp to get my BMI to a range acceptable to dr white. I'm down 3 dress sizes. Dr White has been incredible through out- he showed up at my bedside to check in on me at 10 pm while in the hospital, returning at 6 am the following morning. He's incredibly dedicated to his patients and the outcome of his work. I also appreciate that he keeps evolving his techniques to stay ahead of the curve. This is not a surgery that's easy to go through but it's a huge investment in yourself. Well worth the time, pain and the cost. More

The hardest part about the surgery was not being able to pick up my younger daughter for a while. My elder daughter told her teacher that her mommy was having her extra tummy skin cut off, but I moved past that embarrassment and here I am today....not only wearing clothes that showoff my figure, but I love vacationing somewhere with a beach so I can get into my bikini! The best compliment is when someone looks at me and is surprised when they hear that I have children, because I have a body that's even better than before kids. Anyway, I hope this helps someone realize how lucky they are to have found Dr. White, congratulations! I know deciding to move forward with an elective surgery is not an easy one, but Dr. White is truly outstanding. More

For close to thirty years, I have haunted the offices of the best plastic surgeons in Dallas hoping to find one who could restore my stomach to some semblance of how it looked before I had children. I never could find one whose results were good enough for me to want to have a tummy tuck until I met Dr. White. Dr. White was the only surgeon to suggest an extended abdominoplasty, which would remove loose skin all the way around to my back and, along with some liposuction on my legs, might actually give me a shape better than I had before any of my pregnancies. He was the only one to offer me the possibility of a scar so fine and undisruptive of the surrounding skin that I wouldn't mind its extra length, a scar well-placed enough to be covered by almost any bikini. And he was the only one to give me hope for an attractive, completely normal-looking belly button. Dr. White is the most conscientious surgeon I have ever encountered ... the most hands on, and the most dedicated to the welfare of his patients. But most importantly, he gives extraordinary tummy tucks. He accomplished everything he told me he could and basically erased thirty years on my torso along with the effects of four C-sections and one appendectomy. I am thrilled with my new look! More

From the beginning, I found Dr. White to be very caring and responsive to my questions. As is normal, I was apprehensive about having elective surgery; however, Dr. White reassured me with a very thorough description of all the procedures and his medical background. A few days after surgery, my jaw dropped when I saw the results of the surgery! A month after surgery, I could not believe that I looked even better --- especially after I viewed my before pictures, and compared them to the body I now love. It is now two months after my surgery and I couldn't be happier with the results. I am several sizes smaller and everywhere I go I get so many compliments. I am looking forward to wearing a bikini for the first time this summer. Thanks Dr. White for being so good at what you do, for the awesome results I am enjoying, and most of all for the great care and attention you have given me. You have been blessed with wonderful gifts! More

Having had two beautiful children didn't come without a price. My body took a heavy hit from the physical stress caused by my pregnancies. Having researched a lot of plastic surgeons in the area, I chose Dr. White for my procedures (Tummy Tuck and Liposuction) --- and I'm sure glad I did. After all, whether you came out a defective model from the assembly line or whether wear and tear of daily living took its toll, there's nothing wrong with going back in for some repairs!!! Bad results from cosmetic surgeries are more common that one would think. Having personally seen horribly rippled skin from some overzealous liposuction, I had flags set in my head on the criteria for choosing a plastic surgeon for my procedure. I believe plastic surgery is a subtle field and the intricacies can take many years to master. It is precisely these intricacies and attention to detail (that translates to quality results for his patients) that impresses me the most about Dr. White. This is one case where you DO get what you pay for. I'm glad I didn't go for any deals and chose smart. Also important to me was that I choose a surgeon who cares for my health and well-being as much as he cares about the results. Anybody who sends in a nurse to check on me post op wasn't going to make the cut. I could not have asked for a better doctor here than Dr. White. Both pre and post op surgical care was excellent to the nth degree. Dr. White personally checked on me several times over the course of my hospital stay (though it was a weekend) and was always promptly available to answer any and all questions. I personally clocked it once that the time from when I called his after-hours line to when he returned my call was less than a minute! Such commitment to patients is rare and makes the difference between a good surgeon and an exceptional one. It also made me very comfortable to know that Dr. White would never compromise health and safety for looks. Talking about the results themselves --- they could not have been any better! Eyes pop when I tell people that I have children. While I never obsessed about my looks, the admiring glances are enough to know that I look the best I ever have. But even more important to me is the happiness and much needed confidence it gives me. After all, there is no cosmetic for beauty like happiness. Thank you, Dr. White!

I needed to have a hysterectomy because of fibroids, but I have really wanted to have a tummy tuck for years. I decided to see Dr. White to find out what would be involved in doing both operations at the same time. I discovered that I could take a negative (needing to have a hysterectomy) and turn it into a positive (getting a flat new tummy with a tummy tuck). That is exactly what I did. What a difference! I now have a barely visible scar, a belly button that looks like all the famous fashion models and a waistline for the first time in my life. Needless to say, my clothes fit better and I feel so much better about myself. Dr. White also reconstructed my husband's nose over a year ago. He previously had two rhinoplasties by another plastic surgeon and was still unable to breathe well. Dr. White not only made his nose look great, he also fixed his breathing problem. My husband is now able to breathe better than ever and doesn't snore anymore. The good night's sleep is priceless! We are proud to say Dr. White is our family plastic surgeon. Believe me, there is a difference. I have worked for several plastic surgeons in the past and my husband and I both chose Dr. White because he is the very best. More

I can't believe how happy I've been with the results of my surgery. To think I was hesitant in the beginning to ever have any. When I finally had my abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and breast augmentation done at the same time, the results were fantastic! I feel confident again out of my clothing --- like the feeling I had before having three children and before breast-feeding all three. To have a wonderful and very capable surgeon makes all the difference in the world. Dr. White is mild-mannered and his voice is very comforting and reassuring. He made me feel calm before and after surgery. His meticulous attention to detail is outstanding! I would definitely recommend Dr. White ten thousand times over to all my patients as well. Thanks again Dr. White! More

Words can't even come close to describe how thrilled I am! Who would have thought a 62 year old woman could look this good? I feel like I have a whole new lease on life. Every time I see my new reflection in the mirror, I just smile all over. What a difference! I had forgotten how much fun shopping could be. I actually enjoy getting dressed again. I went from a size 14 to a size 10. It seems almost every day, someone I haven't see in a while comes up to me and says My goodness... Is that you? You look fantastic. I haven't looked this good in over 30 years! Thank you Dr. White! More

I write for a living. Every day I seem to be able to find unique sentiments to describe how various firms serve their customers in meaningful ways. Rarely am I at a loss for words. When it comes to you, Dr. White, however --- as I think back over my doctor/patient relationship over the last four years or so --- I find myself filled with emotion. How do I sufficiently thank someone who has so positively impacted my life?When I initially came to you, it was with a simple requirement. Since that time, I've had several elective procedures completed. Then I was filled with doubt. Now I believe. You've shown me that perfect plastic surgery requires the skill and patience of a sculptor. You've demonstrated that for you, both fine craftsmanship and the safety of your patients far outweigh any monetary gain you might derive from a procedure. You've helped me understand that having MD after your name isn't a title or a rank that makes you better than your patients. For you, it means nights, weekends, tirelessly reassuring those who fear, cheering someone who hurts, checking in when most would merely take off, and perfecting what others might think is fine. I've found that your dedication is never-ending. What leaves me without the right words, though, isn't any of these things. It's the contradiction in terms. You operate on the outside. You make better what nature has let go astray. But somehow you also transform what's beneath the surface. You routinely show your patients how much you care. You give of yourself 24 hours a day. You make each and every one of us feel like better people on the inside simply by association with you. The gift you give can't be assigned a value. And so, though I searched for something more meaningful, I'm back at two words that seem dismally inept. Thank you.... More

My tummy tuck experience couldn't have gone any smoother. From the moment I met Dr. White, I felt like I was his number one priority. He explained in detail numerous times with me and my husband about what to expect from day one of the procedure to recovery. It all happened just like he said it would. I am more than pleased with my results. Honestly, I wouldn't change a thing about the whole process. I still find myself staring in the mirror in disbelief at what a transformation my mid-section has gone through --- and I'm almost 3 months post op! Dr. White told me in the very beginning that I'd be in a bikini in no time. I just laughed and thought, Yeah right, never again. Well, I now own three bikinis and I hadn't worn one in about 4 years! The comments from friends and family have been overwhelmingly positive. I even got hit on at the gym once and again at Target while shopping with my three year old. I don't remember things like THAT happening ever! This is so much fun! Thank you for everything --- I only wish I had done it sooner!!! More

Thank you so much for making me look as good on the outside, as I feel on the inside. You did an amazing job with my facelift and tummy tuck. It looks so natural that I forget I even had plastic surgery. I have been so pleased with my results --- it is better than I could have ever expected! I looked for three years for a plastic surgeon and wasn't pleased with what I heard or saw --- until I researched further and found you. You are the absolute best in your field. My family and friends are still looking for scars that have faded away, which in my case, disappeared a lot sooner than I ever expected. They all say I look younger and better than ever. The before and after care you and your staff provided was wonderful. You made sure all my questions were answered. I felt very comfortable throughout the whole process, beginning to end. Several people have asked me my opinion about plastic surgery, and if I would do it again. My answer, of course, is yes, yes, yes. It's been terrific! I tell them if they choose to have 'any' plastic surgery done at all, Dr. White is the only plastic surgeon in the country to go to. They won't have to worry at all --- everything will be done to perfection. The only regret I have is that I didn't find you sooner, after going through so many other doctors, and wasting a lot of time. YOU ARE THE BEST! My husband and I both want to thank you for all you've done for me. We appreciate you very much. I have been very blessed to have found such an amazing doctor as you. God Bless You! More

If you are buying a car you have options. Do you want the very best (leather seats, air conditioner) or would you be happy to lower the windows in the hot sun and hope for a cool breeze?When looking for a plastic surgeon, you also have choices. There are many options you can choose. To me these decisions are important in finding THE Plastic Surgeon that I would trust with my life. Cost may be an issue for some, but since each person and their needs are different, it is a personalized surgical decision. No one wants to have a cookie cutter (one size fits all) surgery. Yes, I probably could have shopped around and found a bargain. But what I wanted was a personalized plan that would fit my needs, my body, and provide the best outcome for me. Safety was also a major concern for me. I did not want to worry about the surgical procedure or the results. I researched many physicians before I decided to have Dr. White perform my surgery. They all had credentials, they all had experience --- but once you meet Dr. White, you will see why he was my choice. It is as if you are the only person in the world during that time. My first encounter was with his office staff. I found that the professional staff was friendly, efficient, and very knowledgeable. They have the kind of personalities that make you feel comfortable. Also, I saw that they took an interest in me. I was not just another patient. They are a delight to talk with and can provide you with information should you need to ask questions. When I visited Dr. White, my expectations were not very high. I wanted to have the excess fat ...waddle as I called it ... removed from my abdomen. During our consultation he showed me the possible results that I could achieve. It was far more than I had expected. I was amazed. I have a friend in a different city that had the same operation. We compared notes. Her surgery was acceptable, but mine was excellent. Dr. White takes the time and patience with each person to make them comfortable. His explanations were very detailed. However, his one-on-one did not stop at that point. During my hospital stay he continued to be an ever present force ...checking and double checking on me. Once I returned to his office for follow-up visits, his wonderful care continued. He provided excellent care. His skills and techniques provided me with very little discomfort and very easy recovery. Dr. White is a very special surgeon. He has a vision. His talent to turn a waddle into a beautiful tummy is just the greatest! His ability to perform surgery and be the very best is and has been very important to me. Patient ...Knowledgeable ... Concerned ... Dedicated ... Experienced. These are only a few of the words that I could use to describe Dr. White. Dr. White is not just a good surgeon --- he is an excellent surgeon. His personality and professional manner far exceeds any physician that I ever met. During my time at Southwestern Medical School, I had the opportunity to know lots of great physicians. I must say Dr. White is the most artistic and smartest person I have ever met. I would like to say, once more, that Dr. White and his staff are very professional and the Best of the Best. I will always remember them and the wonderful change that was made to my body and my life. And if you are wondering, I am not a young patient --- I am a 59 year old woman with the tummy of a 25 year old!! It is beautiful! (Not to mention my abs) More

When I was looking into having a tummy tuck, I remembered an associate had a tummy tuck several years ago. I asked her about it and she told me of Dr. White. She said: I have the best plastic surgeon --- he is very good and thorough! I didn't waste anytime calling and getting an appointment. Dr. White spends as much time as needed to answer all your questions --- and questions you probably didn't know to ask. He makes you feel like you are his only patient. He NEVER rushes you in or out! He listens to you --- your wants and your desires for yourself. Then he goes and makes it happen --- better than you ever imagined! The thing about Dr. White is that he is not just a plastic surgeon --- he is an ARTIST! He is a perfectionist, but isn't that what you want in a plastic surgeon?Not only did I get the body I was looking for, he also got me and my husband to quit smoking! The $200 a month my husband and I spent on cigarettes, I now spend on clothes! Thank you just doesn't express how you have changed my life, Dr. White --- and added years to it as well! My whole family thanks you for that! More

Being a breast cancer survivor with several breast reconstructions by other plastic surgeons, I have found that Dr. White's talent and caring are unparalleled. I recently had a tummy tuck and now have the best figure in my life at age 58! I went from a size a size 10 regular to either a size 4 regular or 6 petite! I can even fit into my daughter's junior size 5/6 skirts! Prior to my surgery, I had a large vertical C-section scar. That scar is now gone --- unbelievable! Dr. White also demonstrates his expertise by anticipating and thus avoiding possible surgical complications. He does excellent pre-op teaching and explains what the surgery will involve as well as the post-op course. As a result, I had a very smooth recovery. While I was in the hospital, he came in every day. He even came in the night of my surgery and helped me get out of bed the first time post-op. Dr. White is the best and I would not want any other plastic surgeon in the future. ... It sure is fun to be able to wear anything without worrying that my tummy shows! More

There are only two words that can describe my experience with Dr. White: Life changing.Before I found him, I had gone to three other plastic surgeons. They were all very nice, but nothing compared to my first consultation with Dr. White. From the minute I walked in the door, he and his staff made me feel very comfortable and at ease. He answered any questions that I had, which were few, because he was very thorough in explaining how the procedure was going to happen and how he was different from other surgeons. He is very passionate and committed to what he does and it shows. He provides personal attention to every patient and is always available to me anytime if I have any concerns or questions. In fact, from the moment I made my decision, he has been with me every step of the way. I never felt like just another number to him. He even called me at home after my surgery to see how I was doing. What other doctor would do that? In fact, what other doctor would provide such excellent follow-up care? He did not just do my surgery and then disappear. I see him every time I have a follow-up appointment. I look better than I ever have in years --- and I owe it all to him. I get compliments everywhere I go about how great I look. Shopping for clothes has never been more fun. I used to dread going to the mall because I hated what I saw in the mirror. Now shopping has become my favorite thing to do! I went from a size 12 to a size 4 --- and I am ecstatic!! I have new found confidence and self-esteem and I am thrilled with my new body. Choosing Dr. White is the best decision I ever made! I highly recommend him to anyone considering cosmetic surgery. It will be the best decision you ever made too! Thank you so much Dr. White! More

True patient care has become quite a cliche' in today's society ... but when it comes to Dr. White, it couldn't be more genuine. I am a 26 year old male who needed a tummy tuck. The problem was there are few to no 26 year old MEN who have had one. Herein lies the problem: I found thousands of women who have gone through the procedure, but not men. Obviously, this made me very apprehensive. So I performed as much research as I could on my own and studied everything I could get my hands on ... but still could not find any research about Tummy Tucks on Men. So, I decided to go on several consultations with several publicly recognized Cosmetic and Plastic Surgeons. Each appointment I went on was the same: Talk to a receptionist in the consult room for 15 minutes about the surgery, anesthesia, recovery, etc... the doctor comes in and looks at me for a minute or two, asks me if I have questions, and I'm done. In and out in about 20 minutes. I thought this was the norm. I heard about Dr. White through a relative, and went on a consultation. Dr. White spent an hour and a half with me explaining not just about how the surgery is performed, but why it's performed the way it is. He walked me through step by step every point during the surgery. He told me that his full tummy tucks are done in a hospital and not in an outpatient center. He told me that he uses real anesthesiologists only. He made me feel like his only patient. This was so inconsistent with the other doctors. Dr. White told me that male tummy tucks are uncommon, but he showed me the differences between this procedure on a man and a woman. He showed me the attention to detail that he has during surgery ... that my surgery would take as long as it should to get the best possible results the safest way possible. He told me about all of the preventative measures he takes to ensure my safety during the procedure ... something that the other doctors didn't do. He told me that the follow-up visits are crucial, that I needed to see him as often as twice per week in the first two or three weeks following surgery to ensure that my body was handling the surgery OK. The other doctors told me that I would need to come one time three weeks after surgery, but to call if I had any problems. Do you think this is where the true patient care cliche' was born? I think so. Aside from a perfect surgery with a phenomenal result, is my self-esteem. I wanted this procedure done for so many different reasons. Dr. White TRULY understood me and shares in my elation. The best part of all is that I have made a new friend ... Someone who I believe truly cares. Not just someone who says so in a brochure. Thanks Dr. White ! More

While I knew I wanted to have plastic surgery, I was extremely apprehensive to have it done...that was until I met Dr. White. After my initial consultation, I knew I found the doctor who was going to do my surgery. I had had numerous consultations with other doctors, but none compared to Dr. White --- with his eye for detail, artistic ability to make things look natural, and enthusiasm that is contagious. At times I think Dr. White and his office staff were as excited about what the procedure could do for my body as I was! From the initial consultation through the pre-op visit, Dr. White made sure he answered any questions I had (as well as those I did not know to ask). I left his office excited at the prospect of the new me and confident that I was in the best hands possible. Dr. White is first and foremost an amazing surgeon --- but he is also a compassionate human being. His follow up care is second to none. He even called me over the weekend at home after my surgery to make sure everything was all right and that I did not have any questions. I did not at the time, but it meant a lot to me that he took that time to check on me. Dr. White and his staff are like having your own personal cheering section in your corner. They have been as excited with my results as I have and their excitement makes me even more excited. Dr. White does amazing work and he makes sure that the results are the best they can be. My stomach is his art piece and I couldn't ask for a better artist! I never knew just how much having this procedure would change my life. I want to thank you Dr. White and your staff for helping me in my journey to be the person I have worked so hard to become. More

As a candidate for a hysterectomy, I was compelled to question my gynecologist about the possibility of a simultaneous tummy tuck. She quickly responded with a suggestion to consult with Dr. White. Excellent and superb are not strong enough words to describe my experience with Dr. White. He is very intelligent, skilled, detailed and informative. I knew what to expect and what was expected of me every step of the way. Dr. White's warm, caring and personable approach enhanced my level of confidence and comfort. My husband and I were extremely impressed with the time that Dr. White spent with me prior to surgery, in the hospital and for months following. Dr. White has a wonderful team. It's actually fun to visit their office. I am 100% satisfied with the results of my surgery. I will continue to recommend Dr. White to all of my friends, colleagues and acquaintances. More

For 19 years, I planned the demise of my marsupial pouch that hung on my abdomen after pregnancy. That event occurred on July 18th, 2006! From the first day I walked into Dr. White's office, met his office staff, and then him, I knew that I had made an excellent choice. I left there feeling confident of his skills and cancelled my other consultations. Now, if you would ask any of my family, friends, or co-workers, they would tell you I am very cautious and never go into anything without covering all the angles first. Being a nurse and working in a large hospital, I was very aware of all the things that can go wrong. I felt very guilty and fearful of having elective surgery. Surgery day went off just as described and I felt like a Queen. Dr. White was there for me before, during, and after my surgery. His attention to the littlest details, from pre-surgery, surgery, and post -surgery, was impressive and shows in the final results! When I speak with other plastic surgery patients, I find that this attention is not the norm. At times you find that you are anxious to just get the whole recovery period over with, but it is worth the extra attention to detail in the end results. Dr. White surrounds himself with professionals that hold his same philosophy. At the hospital, you find attentive and compassionate care. His office staff are friendly and care about you as a person; sharing in your excitement as your body changes. Last but not least...PAIN...they say that the recovery period from an abdominoplasty or tummy tuck is the hardest and most painful procedure of any plastic surgery. One friend that had the same procedure six months before me, but not by the same doctor, compared her pain to worse than her cesarean section! It can be, but Dr. White makes sure that his patients don't experience that pain. I sing praises about Dr. White and his pain pump. The day after my surgery, I was taking Tylenol for discomfort. I might have taken a Lortab at night to help me sleep, but certainly not for the pain! I love my new tummy! My family and friends can't believe how tiny I look. Thanks a million! More

Thank you so much for making me feel alive and beautiful again Dr. White! My husband says You're the Man! He is also quite pleased with your work ... to say the least. After having two children, the baby process is not nice to the body and somehow strips your self image and self confidence. I knew I wanted a Mommy Makeover to feel like the old me again. You not only made that happen --- but I feel like a teenager! Wow! It is a lot of fun looking in the mirror and getting dressed every day. What a huge impact you have made on my life! I was very impressed with how friendly and knowledgeable your staff is. Your nurse has just been there for me in every way to answer all my questions and make me feel at home! These are all definitely a great indicator of how great a doctor you are and how you run your business. During my initial consult, I instantly knew that you were the doctor for me. I had many fears about doing a tummy tuck and breast augmentation, but you always put my mind at ease with your confidence in the results to expect. It is so clear how much you love what you do and how much you love improving the lives of your patients. Shortly after scheduling my surgery, my mom decided to have you do her tummy tuck as well. What a great experience we could share in together. You have made this journey special for us ... and fun along the way through our transformations. We now go shopping together and are always comparing our AMAZING results! You have been there with us every step of the way: before, during and after and with such excitement! You really care and that means so much. You have always gone above and beyond the expectations and what a great gift that has been. You are not only my doctor, but someone whom I will always consider a friend. I will be forever grateful for the way that you have changed my life. A new journey in my life is just beginning and I thank you for renewing my spirit as well as my body! Wishing you continued success! With much love to everyone... More

I just wanted to thank you again for everything you have done for me. You helped me fulfill a dream that I thought would never become a reality. After my first child was born by C-section, I wanted that ugly scar and stretch marks removed. Then came the second child. That scar got really big and thick after he was born. That was 17 years ago. After some weight gain, my abdomen looked just like I had a big buttock crease in the front. It really bothered me and I longed for it to be smooth again. I didn't wear anything flattering any longer, because I didn't feel attractive. I hated myself. I hated summer. Swimsuits were not even a part of my summer attire. I like going to the pool --- but we just didn't go anymore because I always made up some excuse so I wouldn't have to be in a swimsuit or anything 'clingy.'Finally, I had just become fed up with feeling bad about myself all the time and I decided to start investigating cosmetic surgery. After checking out the local surgeons and not getting the satisfaction I wanted, I looked on the internet and came across your web site. Your before and after pictures were fabulous! I was amazed at your work. When I came in for my first appointment, you spent time with me going over what you thought would be best for me and how those procedures would be performed. I was completely at ease and confident in you. You gave me advice that I trusted. Putting it all in your hands, the outcome was better than I had expected. I'm so happy with the results! I went from a size 12 to size 6. My stomach is so flat that people think I've had breast enlargement! No more ugly scar, a flat stomach, and really great-looking legs have made me start hitting the malls again --- shopping for things I would never have worn before! I'm proud of how I look. I'm not one bit ashamed to tell people I've had cosmetic surgery. I'm proud of it! One thing, in particular, I'd like to thank you for is your commitment to me and my health --- the calls you made to me just to check up on my progress and treating me with real care. I truly knew that you cared. I've had many, many doctors in my life, my children's lives, etc. and no one ever showed me the compassion and care like you have. You are truly the best. I'm having more cosmetic surgery in the near future and it's not even a question where I'll be going. You have won me over for life! More

I am a single man, age 48. I've worked-out for years. My chest, arms and legs showed the results of hours spend in the gym. But no matter what I did, the abs only got worse. I visited several doctors prior to selecting Dr. White to do my tummy tuck. I own two companies and it's my nature to be demanding. I selected Dr. White for one primary reason: Trust. I had Trust that he could produce the results he proposed. (And in actuality the results exceeded what I hoped for.)I had Trust that my recovery would be quick and complete, based on his attention to patient care. (I returned to work six days after surgery. The other doctors I spoke to said 10-14 days.)I had Trust that the risk of post-surgery complications would be minimized. (There were none.)I had Trust that I could believe everything he said. (And I still do.)I had Trust that when it comes to his patients, the words Good Enough are never said. And, most important to me, I had trust that Dr. White is a good Christian Man. Everything I have is a gift from the Lord and I believe Dr. White feels this way too. To whom much is given, much is expected; I'll attest that Dr. White uses his talents well. I'm proud that I made this decision. It was a reward for years of hard work. I feel better; the procedure eliminated back pain, leg numbness, and, acid reflux. I also look dang good --- wearing skin-tight 32 jeans is a thrill I never thought I'd again experience! I can't believe the number of women that have complimented me on my appearance. I have only compliments for Dr. White. I've no doubt my quality of life will be better, for the next 20 years. More

As a healthcare professional, I have learned the importance of a physician who pays attention to detail and provides good follow-up care. I researched plastic surgeons extensively and wanted a physician who would go the extra mile to provide better outcomes not only with surgical technique but also with prevention of complications and patient education. I found this in Dr. White. I noticed his attention to detail immediately with my consultation and pre-op visits. The post surgical and follow-up care was also excellent. I appreciated Dr. White's hospital visits and phone calls after I went home. My result has been amazing and I could not be more pleased! The extra time spent on my surgical procedure kept the scarring minimal, gave me an amazing belly button, and an hourglass figure. Thank you Dr. White --- for your excellent work and commitment to excellence! I will definitely refer Dr. White to anyone considering plastic surgery and I will be back in the future! More

I can't begin to tell you how much you have exceeded my expectations Dr. White. As a mother of two, I adore my children, but hate what two pregnancies had done to my mid-section. I was left with stretch marks that resembled a roadmap and so much loose skin that it formed an unsightly pouch. I came to realize that no amount of exercise would flatten my sagging stomach, and that a tummy tuck was the only solution. So, I read everything I could about the procedure, and then began my search for a plastic surgeon. After considering a dozen or so, I decided to choose you. Why? Because in addition to impeccable credentials, you made me feel right at home the first time we met. Your laid back demeanor put me at ease as if I was chatting with a friend. And the icing on the cake was that your way of performing a tummy tuck is completely different from other plastic surgeons. You spend more time in surgery, your methods are more intricate (perfected through extensive experience) and in my mind, this puts you head & shoulders above the rest. The care I received has been phenomenal, from start to finish, starting with your office staff, who feels like extended family. You're such a perfectionist, that you even instructed the nurses at the hospital on how to position me on the bed, and precisely how to get me into and out of bed. And NO ONE was more surprised than I was when you came to the hospital to check on me at 11 o'clock at night! This alone, reassured me that not only are you the best, but you truly care about your patients! And what about my results? Well, as an African-American, I was nervous about how the scar would turn out since we tend to have keloid scars. However, this fear was unfounded because I have the tiniest, thinnest line of a scar! Oh, and the absolute best part ... my belly button looks like it did before my kids were born. I am now shopping for a bikini!! Needless to say, I am 1,000% satisfied with my result. THANK YOU, Dr. White for rewinding the clock and giving me back my youthful tummy. What you did for me is nothing short of AMAZING!!! More

I had just come through a divorce and was not feeling great about my body. I came to Dallas on a visit and started looking into the idea of a tummy tuck. I did some research and Dr. White kept coming up. I begged for an appointment (as he was very booked) before going back home. Dr. White and his staff were wonderful. He was very friendly and it felt like I'd known him forever. He explained everything in detail and I did not feel like he was rushing me to see the next patient. I went back home and thought about it. Living in the New York area, I had great doctors but I did not feel comfortable. They would send me home immediately after surgery. Dr. White insisted on at least 1 night in the hospital. After coming back to Dallas, I scheduled my surgery. I felt very confident and trusted Dr. White. He came to see me every day in the hospital. I opted to stay extra days in the hospital because I didn't have a full-time caregiver. Dr. White was mine for that time. He even showed up on a Saturday night. Who would do that just to check up on you?My follow-up visits were continuous. Not just see you in 1-2 weeks! I felt very well taken care of. I told him before surgery that I would never wear a bikini --- but I did! It gave me a lot of confidence back. I can't thank Dr. White enough. I also think that the girls in the office went out of their way to accommodate me. I'm so glad I came to Dallas. What a souvenir – a new body! Thank You! More

Since the birth of my two children (ages 7 and 5), I have spent countless hours in the gym or pounding the pavement. I have run three marathons and am very fit. But, no matter how hard I have exercised, how well I eat or how many lotions and skin firming creams I have tried ...there was no getting rid of the excess skin on my abdomen. The stretch marks that my handsome son created, and my beautiful daughter perpetuated, had left me with no elasticity in the skin on my abdomen. Every year I would tell myself that I had worked hard and that I deserved to have the abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) I desired. However, I never felt comfortable with any of the numerous doctors I researched and met, and I thus I would talk myself out of it, telling myself that it wasn't my lack of comfort with the doctors, but that it just wasn't the time to finally indulge myself. So, I would spend another bikini season in one-piece suits, artfully hiding the part of my body I hated the most. I spend too much time in front of the mirror pulling and tugging the skin this way and that until my tummy looked like it did when I got it just right. The minute I let the skin down I would be crestfallen again, dressing as quickly as possible, hoping out of sight would make it out of mind for a while. My best friend has a body part she has wanted to fix for a while as well, so one Sunday we decided to head down to the Cosmetic Surgery Expo at Market Center. We arrived just in time to listen to a lecture by one of D Magazine's Top Doc's and after the lecture we migrated with the crowd to listen to him speak further about his techniques, attention to detail, and high level of perfectionism. We asked questions and spoke with him for more than an hour and what impressed us most is that he loved answering the questions, speaking in length and detail about various procedures. That day I met Dr. Steven J. White, and I knew then I had met the doctor who would do my coveted tummy tuck. Soon after that fateful day I received the diagnosis that at the young age of 30, I would have to have a hysterectomy. Years of putting the tummy tuck off came to an end when I learned that the opportune time to have the tummy tuck would be at the same time as the hysterectomy. I figured that I was going to turn something that was sad for me (the hysterectomy) in to something that would make me happy, the tummy tuck I had always wanted. From there your staff and my gynecologist's office arranged the details and I just showed up. Everything just fell in to place. As for the results ... PHENOMENAL!!! I couldn't be happier with my beautiful new tummy, contoured hips, cinched waist and choice of doctor. The results are truly better than I could have ever imagined. Dr. White spent hours perfecting my abdomen exceeding my expectations by leaps and bounds, but his care and attention to detail didn't stop there. He came and saw me at the hospital every night after full days of seeing other patients and performing surgeries. After I went home he even came in on a Sunday to remove a drain. Each time I though his level of patient care couldn't get better I would be flabbergasted yet again. I truly don't know how he does it! My thanks and praises can never be fully expressed but I know that I truly am a walking advertisement for the best cosmetic surgeon around, Dr. Steven J. White! Thank you! More

When I decided to explore the possibility to do tummy tuck surgery, I researched on more than one doctor. Dr. White impressed me immensely on his way of explaining the steps involved in the procedure, as detailed as I needed to hear, and even included the type of stitching he was going to do. By listening to him and reading his documentation, I knew what I was getting into and the benefits and risks involved. He clearly communicated to me the timeline of surgery to recovery. Moreover, he volunteered reminders of where we were at in the process. After surgery, Dr. White personally took special attention and care to my recovery and monitored the progress like a hawk. He even called my house to check how I was doing. This is what I call a good service and ownership of work well done. I am very pleased with his professionalism and attention to detail mixed with his positive attitude. He has reached a level of expertise in his work which shows outstanding results. My stomach looks like when I was 17 --- Perfect job!! Dr. White managed to erase the results of two pregnancies of super healthy and BIG kids. I am glad to be finally back to normal. I am very glad I finally did it and with the right doctor. I also experienced a great deal of attention and support from all the nurses I met in the recovery phase. To top it all, his supporting staff has been very knowledgeable, helpful and accommodating every time I had a question or setting up appointments. More

I am very pleased to have decided to use Dr. White. A girlfriend of mine had her thighs liposuctioned 2 weeks before my procedure. She unfortunately used a different surgeon. We compared our thighs and hips a few days ago and she, besides having an operated look, has lumps. My thighs are smooth and natural looking. Her procedure cost less and took less time, but it also had a poor result! I have already lost 12 inches in my waist and I'm only 2 weeks post surgery. I'm so pleased. Thank you Dr. White, I'll recommend you to all my friends! More

I came to Dr. White because I was going to have a hysterectomy and wanted abdominoplasty performed on the same day. The only regret I have is not doing this sooner! The results are wonderful! I am a fitness instructor who teaches at least twelve classes a week, but could not work off my saggy skin on my stomach. I have three children and the elasticity of my skin was just shot. No amount of exercise could have helped me with this problem. I am so thankful to Dr. White for the skill, details, and true artistry of his work. He is the best! More

After gaining 50% of my body weight with both pregnancies, and having two C-Sections (two separate incisions --- one vertical and one horizontal) my stomach was a mess. When my daughter went off to college, I started a vigorous exercise program to get my stomach back into shape. I exercised three to four times a week for 3 years. I felt better, but my stomach looked the same --- ugly! I finally got the names of several plastic surgeons from friends. I went to several consults and made the decision to go with Dr. White. Dr. White was confident, experienced, and the best in his field. Talk about being picky! His attention to detail is amazing. Dr. White took the time to explain the surgery and the recovery. He didn't leave anything out. His bedside manner is amazing. Dr. White truly loves what he does and it shows. Four weeks after the surgery, my beautiful, 21 year old daughter came home from college to check on me. She wanted to see Dr. White's masterpiece. We were standing in front of a mirror looking at my beautiful, flat and perfectly-shaped stomach when she pulled up her shirt to compare tummies. (52 year old mother and 21 year old daughter comparing tummies --- PRICELESS!) A couple of weeks later she was babysitting for one of her professors. His wife asked how I was doing and what my stomach looked like. My daughter said, My Mom's stomach looks like mine!I want to thank Dr. White for all his care and attention to detail. My husband and I have not been able to get over the care he gives after surgery. Dr. White is an extremely gifted surgeon and caring person. He truly cares for his patients and their well-being. There is one thing I would do different: I wouldn't have waited so long to find the perfect doctor --- Dr. White! More

How do I thank you Dr. White without sounding corny? My friends thought I was crazy to have my tummy tuck in Dallas because I live in California, but you were so worth it! The care you and your staff gave me before and after surgery was off the charts. I am 60 years old and was very nervous of having this procedure at this stage of my life. Now my only regret is I didn't do it years ago! To be able to walk into a department store and to once again be able to wear almost anything I choose and have it look good, is truly a wonder to me. When I look in the mirror I still can't believe it's me. It's been 40 years since I have felt this good! Dr. White, I felt so safe and well cared for. God has given you a gift and you have not wasted it. You are truly an artist. You may add me to your long list of grateful patients and I will be singing your praises for years to come. Thank you!

I spent many months --- actually years --- considering getting a tummy tuck and liposuction on my hips and thighs but just wasn't so sure about it... Well, I am 100% happy that I chose to have these procedures done by Dr. Steven White. As a physician myself, it is clear to me that Dr. White is extremely knowledgeable and keeps up with the latest advances in techniques. Dr. White genuinely cares about achieving the very best outcome for each and every patient. He graciously accommodated my need to have the elective surgery when I had time off from my own practice, which happened to be over the Thanksgiving Holidays. He is very meticulous in his surgical techniques, taking great care to customize the chosen procedure to each patient's body type and to achieve the very best outcome. The hospital nurses who also cared for me after my surgery commented to me that he has a reputation in the hospital for being an exceptional surgeon. Because he spends so much time to customize his surgery they usually take longer. He is willing to spend the extra time ...which pays off greatly for his fortunate patient. I was amazed at how taunt and flat my abdomen was after surgery. He stated he would tighten my abdominal muscles --- however the outcome was far better than I had hoped for. Another thing I've been very happy with is how he got rid of my saddle bags that I have been embarrassed about all my life --- even in high school. I love how the outcome looks so natural; it looks as though I just never had them. I will trust Dr. White for any cosmetic procedure I may elect to do in the future! More

Dr. White, I am truly your # 1 fan. I can say this because you have changed the direction I was headed in and helped me open a door that I had closed over 5 years ago. That door was the door to my future outside of kids and work. Before I met you, I thought at age 38 my life was no longer for me to be happy --- but just to exist in making everyone around me happy and successful. You allowed me to open the door to myself, my spirit, my love for me. You helped me unblock the outer shell that opened the door to my inner self to allow me to love me and know that I was an important part of making me happy. I am a beautiful person inside and outside. You helped me to see that again. Now I'm rolling in happiness. I love shopping --- no more depression --- no more size 16/18 --- no more feeling embarrassed to remove my clothes! I am happy and excited to have that feeling and the confidence of one day meeting a new man and not being afraid or embarrassed about what he might think of my body. I know that beauty is on the inside --- but let's face it, it's what helps you get in the door! I am thankful that my friend gave me your card. I felt very safe with you. I could feel that you loved what you do. I could see it in how you handled every session, every conversation --- keeping me comforted that all would be okay. Your sensitivity and honesty throughout (before, during, and after) made me feel good and I knew what to expect even when I was scared! My only fear was this being something new. Not many minorities, especially black people, feel comfortable going to doctors, let alone surgery and especially a surgery not critical to life. The feeling that you gave me was as if I were family. It was critical for me and I want to say again Thank you! You helped me see me again! I will continue to be an advertisement for you and the beautiful work you do! More

Dr. White, you are my hero. You have made my tummy go from looking pregnant to hot, hot, hot! I lost 50 lbs before my tummy tuck. I was in bad need of this surgery. Although I lost so much weight, my tummy was still big. You did a super job. Dr. White, you helped my go from a size 20 (pre-diet) to a perfect size 9. And my new belly button couldn't be cuter! Before surgery I was mostly concerned with pain and recovery --- but it was a snap. I convinced a friend to come take care of me the week after surgery because I was afraid I would be in bed in pain. I was not. I had little pain after surgery. The magic pain pump is truly magic. After my hospital stay, I spent a few days in a recliner, but I was completely able to take care of myself. Your bedside manner is amazing. You honestly care for each of your patients. I loved that you came to help me walk after surgery and the fact that you took time out of your busy day to call and check on me after surgery. It is 4 ¬O months after surgery and I am completely healed. I feel great physically and emotionally. And I look great too ... if I may say. I just spent a week on the Mayan Riviera. For the first time in my life, I wore a bikini. And I didn't just wear it --- I spent the week in my bikini! I loved every minute of it. For the first time in10 years, I feel confident in a swimsuit! I am so glad I found you! Thank you so much! More

I am a busy finance executive of a Fortune 500 company with a CPA and MBA. I have worked in the business world for 23 years. I have mostly relied on my intelligence to navigate life on the planet, but have been blessed also with feeling fine about my looks --- except for a strong dislike for the skin on my tummy. For over 15 years, since the birth of my last child, I have regularly thought about having a tummy tuck to correct what I felt were very unsightly marks. At the same time, I was ambivalent because I equated having plastic surgery with a lack of depth of character or even shallowness, and I wrestled with overcoming that bias. Over the past five years, I began visiting plastic surgeons and aestheticians and dermatologists about my case, but never came away with a feeling of hope or partnership from anyone. One doctor even made jokes about what little he could do to help me, unless I first gained 300 pounds! That was a low point for me. After all, this investigation was not just about beauty; it was more about confidence, and since this was about my body and my life, it was certainly no laughing matter to me! I wanted and needed a competent doctor who understood that. My brother is a doctor and I also have a good friend who is a doctor. After visiting with my friend, I was referred to Dr. White, and after having decided to have surgery performed by Dr. White, I was elated to find out Dr. White is a highly respected friend and colleague of my brother's! I am blessed with fine children, and my daughter actually encouraged me to get the surgery after watching plastic surgery shows on TV. Once I told my sister I was having the surgery, she commented to me her encouragement, even noting, You have the worst stomach I've ever seen...you need to get this done! The comments and sometimes painful encouragement of these people made a huge difference for me in overcoming the bias I had been feeling about plastic surgery. When I first met Dr. White, I was extremely impressed with his patience and kindness, as well as his skill and the perfectionist tendencies he exhibited in his work! I was also impressed with the professionalism and knowledge of his staff. On the first visit, he spent over 2 hours with me, just answering my questions and talking about expectations with MY case! I have to say that after the surgery, I am very impressed by the results. As I exercised regularly before, I was not a large person to start with, so not many people can really tell I had the procedure ... but they can tell that I look wonderful, and I am regularly greeted by their compliments (I did lose about 5 pounds) which I like! My stomach is now tight enough to bounce a quarter on, and the marks on my skin are diminished, fewer, and also lower on my abdomen. This is definitely helping me with my confidence. I do like the way I look, and I feel like Dr. White helped me to restore myself to a certain degree to the person I rightly am and was before children! It's amazing and wonderful to have been given the opportunity, and important too, especially as I have been divorced for the past two years. I feel now that having the surgery is giving me a welcome boost of confidence to greet what comes next in life! More

Dr. White is the most professional, conscientious, and amazing doctor. My first visit with him was wonderful. He made me feel very comfortable and confident. His staff was very welcoming and made me feel important. I truly felt as if I was Dr. White's only patient. I have never been to a doctor that takes such an interest in getting to know his patients as well as educating and preparing them for surgery. I was ready for each of my surgeries, and was very calm because I was prepared. I am thrilled with my results! After my tummy tuck --- I went down four sizes!!! My husband is thrilled and has been very pleased with the care and attention we have both received. I want you to know that I have already referred three different friends to you.

The office atmosphere is professional and at the same time relaxed and comfortable. The care I received at the hospital (Texas Institute for Surgery) was exceptional. I am a Registered Nurse and was extremely impressed with the level of care. Dr. White was completely available after surgery and I was most impressed.

Dr. White has to be the most caring doctor there is. I was very skeptical about getting a tummy tuck, but after the first consultation with Dr. White, I felt more comfortable with everything. With Dr. White and his staff I did not feel like a patient, I felt like I was part of their family. After my tummy tuck, I was wrapped for a few days before I actually saw myself. Once Dr. White unwrapped me to take a peek, I was stunned to see myself. I could not get over it. Dr. White left me looking so amazing --- I never thought I would look this good and feel this good!

Having surgery has been a life-changing event. Two years after my pregnancy, I still appeared pregnant. Some people even asked, So when are you due? Getting dressed each day had become a battle. What could I wear to hide my unusually large stomach? Very often my days began in tears. Unhappiness about my appearance was beginning to affect all aspects of my life. After my first consultation, I felt so comfortable with Dr. White and his staff that I started to seriously consider surgically correcting my problem. All aspects of the procedure were discussed with me and my spouse. There were absolutely no surprises. Every precaution was taken to ensure my health and safety. Dr. White continues to be available to me 24 hours a day if I should have any questions or concerns. Three weeks after my procedure, I went from a size 16 to a size 12. I feel great about my appearance and it shows! Not just on the outside — but on the inside as well! More

Wow! What can I say ... except that Dr. White did everything he could to make me feel comfortable as well as well-informed?I have wanted to have a tummy tuck for 19 years, after my first son was born, but always felt like it was too extreme of a surgery to have chosen to go through. But after so many years of being unhappy with the way I looked and felt about myself, I decided to do some research. I did not want just any doctor, I wanted the best. Even after surgery, I still feel like I had the best with Dr. White. His attention to detail is amazing. The way he goes above and beyond what most doctors would do, I would not hesitate to do it again. It is so wonderful to actually want to look at yourself in the mirror --- instead of avoiding them. Words cannot describe how that makes you feel inside. To not be scared to death if anyone sees your tummy anymore is sure a sense of freedom. Thank you, Dr. White! More

Dr. White, it has taken me awhile to put in words what is in my heart. Your TEAM succeeds in life altering surgeries and decisions every day. The physical and emotional aspect of those surgeries is easily identifiable and an immediate result from the surgery. However, do you realize that you make spiritual changes as well? My physical appearance, my emotional boost of self esteem and self confidence is apparent to old friends and acquaintances. The real change goes so much deeper than that and for those people that live an emotional life like I do, it is an actual spiritual change. My outside finally matches my inside. I am one of those people that wear her heart on her sleeve. It's who I am, and it has taken me almost 40 years to accept that every emotion I feel displays instantly on my face. Since my incredibly successful procedure, my underlying constant emotion is one of acceptance of myself and that I am finally ME on the outside as well as the inside. It is a wonderful feeling ... and not only do my friends see it, but I see it in the mirror, every day and it makes me smile on the inside. The most astounding comment I have about my unbelievable successful surgery, is that you covered every little detail. I know that my speedy recovery was due to your excruciating attention to detail. I am a perfectionist and it is easy to spot one. Thank you...for your attention to detailfor doing research and successfully developing procedures that are for the WHOLE person not just the specific surgery you are performingfor looking into the future and realizing what you do today, will have affect not only on your patient --- but their family as well --- for the rest of their lives for making a list of all the details and what to expect and even organizing them for me for telling me the truthfor making the smiley face charts AND the sad ones as well (it confirmed that others had been through the same emotions and I wasn't alone)for telling me specifically and in great detail how to get in and out of bed ... and even drawing a picturefor telling me to take the medications exactly how you prescribed and not to be a martyr, I did heal faster and the little pain that I did have subsided quicklyfor caring about ME and my emotional well-being not just my physical well-beingfor insisting someone stay with me through the night and teaching them how to help me for caring about my mom and making sure she was okay while she stayed with mefor being proud of me and recognizing that it was difficult for me to do everything you told me to, exactly how you told me to do itfor allowing me to whine a little (okay, maybe a lot!)for supporting me and encouraging me every single step of the wayfor having a TEAM that cares, not staff members that get paidWhen I showed my cousin how great I looked and told her about my awesome recovery, the look on her face was devastating. She lifted her shirt and showed me how her surgeon had treated her. I was in shock. A prominent surgeon with excellent referrals butchered her. There is no other term for it. She knew it wasn't normal but couldn't find anyone to support her and show her proof that her surgery was not a success. He told her... To wear her girdle / binder for a couple of days (I wore mine for weeks)That her red, oblong belly button and the quarter sized red blotch around it was normal (mine is round with a very thin, light tan ring from the scar that is still healing and is already unnoticeable)That the knots around her incision are normal – her entire belly is swollen as if she has a hard basketball in it, IT HAS BEEN THREE YEARS Thank you Dr. White.

I have always believed that if a person focuses 100% of their attention and talent to any one task they can be phenomenal at it. In my experience with Dr. White, I have found this statement to be accurate. Dr. White's ability --- by virtue of skill, talent, and imagination to create aesthetic beauty by using the human body as his canvas --- makes him one of the most phenomenal artists I've ever known. The abdominoplasty Dr. White performed on me transformed my awkward physique to an awesome physique! My body, spirit, and life have forever been changed and I have only one man to thank.

It's been one year since my tummy tuck. I'm still pleased as punch. The results are better than I imagined. The care I received both before and after my surgery was and still is better than I expected. What I mean is --- of course --- you expect professional care in a professional setting. But Dr. White goes above and beyond that. You feel he truly cares about each of his patients individually. One year later and he is still keeping track of me. I would recommend Dr. White to anyone and I will definitely go back to him to do any more plastic surgery. As a matter of fact, I would not want to go anywhere else. It would be hard for anyone else to live up to his standards. More

It's been 5 months since my surgery, Dr. White. How time flies! Just wanted to say thank you for the awesome care I received from day one. You and your staff are in a league of their own! I began my personal journey 4 years ago. I did not want to turn 50 and be out of shape and overweight. I begin to eat right and exercise regularly. I truly had to change my outlook and life choices. During the past 4 years I dropped over 80 pounds. Went from size 18 to size 4 ... I never imagined. I had 2 c-sections in the early 80's and even with all the exercise and yoga the skin on my stomach just hung. I began to look into plastic surgeons. I visited 3 surgeons' offices, sometimes never meeting the doctor only his nurses. When I called your office, your staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and a step above. My first appointment was amazing --- every question answered. I actually met the doctor! There was no pressure to make a decision that day. Just a thank you for considering Dr. White!! I walked out of the office and told my husband I don't know when I will have this surgery --- but this will be the man. I could sense his passion and confidence in his practice. This was so reassuring, even though the cost was more than other surgeons, that was a secondary thought. I knew I deserved the best for all my personal accomplishments. And I found him. One month later, I was undergoing my extended tummy tuck. I still remember that morning on the way getting nervous. When I got to the hospital, the staff asked what surgery I was having, when I told them extended tummy tuck...next question...who is your doctor? When I said Dr. White, they said he is the best --- you are so lucky. I was still nervous but when Dr. White showed up with his enthusiasm for the day ahead of us I knew everything would be okay. That evening around midnight Dr. White showed up in my hospital room. He said I am here to help you get up for the first time. I was delightfully surprised. He also showed me my new belly and belly button. Wow! ... was I shocked. I looked amazing!! He then said you're still swollen. After spending 2 nights at the hospital I was sent home to heal. I had a few concerns with my meds. We had to call Dr. White in the late evening. Each time he returned our calls in just minutes, listening to every concern and informed us how to handle each situation. He then thanked me for calling saying that's what I'm here for.I actually wear a bikini!! I kept saying I would never wear one! Shopping is a new world!! I only wish I had cameras running for the past 4 years so the whole world could see this transformation with their own eyes. Friends and family cannot believe the new me. If I had to do it all over again, I would not change a thing. The timing, my attitude and outlook was for right now!! Thank you Dr. White for the outward masterpiece you created. I feel like a piece of art that the artist has sculpted. One word of advice I can give to someone considering this surgery is take the advice of the doctor. Follow everything he says to do. Do your best for Dr. White is doing his very best for you. You will not be disappointed!!!*If anyone ever wanted to talk to someone who has had this surgery or about Dr. White and staff they can call me!! More

After several years of dieting and exercising and no luck in getting rid of my stomach, I knew that I would eventually have to have a tummy tuck. I also knew that it was a big operation and not one to be taken lightly. After consultations with several prestigious plastic surgeons, it was obvious to my husband and me that Dr. White was the only one we would consider. From my first encounter with Dr. White and his staff, all of our questions – even those we didn't think to ask – were answered thoroughly and patiently. We knew exactly what to expect throughout the surgery and healing process. What we didn't expect was how truly conscientious Dr. White would be from pre-op through follow-up. His midnight visits to the hospital the first night after surgery, his personally helping me get up and walk the hall for the first time following surgery, his phone call to our home to ensure I was doing OK, his treating my husband and I as valued patients rather than just another case file – these were just a few of so many large and small things that Dr. White did that made this a truly remarkable experience. Dr. White is extremely talented, personable, conscientious, detail-oriented, and totally dedicated to the welfare of his patients. He is a true artist and perfectionist and it shows in the pride he takes in his work and follow-up care. All these attributes along with his sense of humor helped make this a phenomenal experience. The only regret I have following tummy tuck surgery is that I waited so long to decide to have it done. And best of all, my stomach at age 62 is now flatter than it's ever been in my life! Dr. White is a truly gifted physician. More

I struggled with this because I knew in my heart what I wanted to say, but I couldn't think of the words I wanted to use that hadn't already been said or sounded cliche-ish. I started thinking about the difference between what Dr. White accomplishes and what other plastic surgeons do and it brought to mind the difference between a cook and a chef. A cook is someone who can prepare food that will supply the nourishment that a body needs. But a chef is someone who prepares food not just for nourishment, but for pleasure. Chefs use basic food items to create a masterpiece that is not only pleasing to the taste, but to the eye. Chefs create from their heart and, if you've ever watched them in action, really enjoy the process of producing something special. That is exactly how Dr. White performs – he puts his heart into what he is doing for people and obviously enjoys what he does. He is not just a doctor and a surgeon – he is an artist. What he is able to accomplish is more than can be learned in any classroom or from any textbook. His talent comes from God. I was referred to Dr. White by a friend who had used him for two different procedures and had nothing but good things to say. The first time I met Dr. White, I immediately understood what my friend was talking about. Dr. White is friendly – instantly treating you as if he has known you all his life (that's that Texas upbringing!) – and professional in his dress and mannerisms. He spends as much time with you as necessary – even if it causes his schedule to back up – explaining everything he is doing in easy-to-understand terms and descriptions. He answers questions thoroughly – although not always giving you the answer you want! – and explains the reason for his answers. He involves all your family members and support people in the entire procedure. He's like a coach of a team – explaining the plays, the expectations, and the desired outcomes. Dr. White made me feel comfortable about my decision to proceed with the surgery from the first time we met. Dr. White's main focus is his patients. This was evident not only during my pre-op visits, but after surgery, too. He visited me every day in the hospital, always smiling and encouraging me along the way. He even put up with a few after hours panic calls once I got home and my family had to do everything without the wonderful hospital staff. Dr. White's excitement and encouragement has continued throughout all the post-op office visits weeks after surgery. I am pleased beyond words with the result of my surgery and the support of Dr. White, his incredible office staff, and my family. The decision to have a plastic surgery procedure was out of character for me, but I am glad I did it. And if I ever decide to have another procedure, Dr. White will be the first person I will call!

I had a tummy tuck and after surgery I immediately noticed a big difference in my appearance --- I looked great! I would truly recommend Dr. White to anyone who would like to have any cosmetic surgery. He is a very caring doctor. Your concerns are his concerns. No question is a silly question to him. I have a lot or respect for him. He has given me a new attitude. Thanks Dr. White. More

Dr. White gives you confidence as soon as you meet him. He explains in detail the complete procedure. He is a perfectionist and caring doctor that is interested in his patients. One that delivers what ever he promises. I had such a wonderful experience with no pain at all. That magical pain pump is worth every penny. What I love about Dr. White is that he guides you and supports you all the way, not only through surgery but also through your recovery. Thank you Dr. White, I will definitely recommend you to all my friends! More

This experience has been life changing. I was apprehensive in the beginning, but after meeting Dr. White and visiting with him, I was completely at ease. He explains in detail what you can expect --- and he delivers. Having everything explained from the procedure to the recovery along with the support of the office staff and their true professionalism is comforting. The surgical and nursing staffs are just as professional and caring. I was never nervous and felt I was always in excellent hands. Dr. White has changed my life!! I have the self-confidence I lost years ago, and I feel much better than I ever expected. Dr. White's expertise is visible in his work --- and I'm living proof. Thank you!! More

Dr. White is the most thorough physician I know. I came for a consult for an abdominoplasty and an umbilical hernia that needed to be repaired. I am very pleased with the prophylactic measures taken, the actual surgery, the pain control I received afterwards, and the frequent follow-up visits. I look great and feel better about my body. I even have a good-looking belly button... which was a main concern of Dr. White's. Dr. White, you aren't just a great surgeon, you have a terrific bedside manner. I appreciate your care and encouragement. More

I had 3 doctors on my list to consult before having a tummy tuck and liposuction of my outer thighs. Dr. White was the first doctor I consulted. He was very thorough and explained everything so I could understand it. He answered all my questions and was very informative about the procedures I inquired about. He was honest and up front with me about everything. Needless to say I had no need to consult any other doctors after consulting with Dr. White. The other 2 doctors were scratched from my list, and my decision was made when I left his office that first day that Dr. White would be my surgeon. From the consultation, to the surgery, to the recuperation, everything was exactly as it was explained to me. Dr. White and his expectations are well known at Presbyterian Hospital of Plano. I can't count the times I heard nurses, techs, and other staff state that I was Dr. White's patient, and how things should be done a certain way because he is so particular. I can't tell you how comforting it was to hear those comments just before being put to sleep. I was a little skeptical when Dr. White wanted to stop the pain pills after the first day. He said I would feel a little rough the first evening, and the next day I would feel better, and would feel better with each day. It was exactly as he said it would be. I am extremely pleased with the results of my surgery so far. Dr. White tells me it will only get better because I am still swollen (It has only been 19 days since my surgery). Dr. White went above and beyond my expectations and told me he even surprised himself a little on what he could achieve on my particular procedure. Dr. White and his staff have made me feel as if I am his only patient every time I have come in. I have never felt rushed, or like he has other patients to see (and I know he does). Dr. White won the confidence of my family, and made them feel confident before, during, and after my surgery. That in itself is a major accomplishment, with my family. My satisfaction with Dr. White, his staff, and my surgery is off the charts. I now feel like part of the family, and will definitely be back for future procedures I am interested in having done. I just can't say enough about my experience with Dr. White. PS - I quit a 44 year smoking habit of a pack a day for this surgery! I credit Dr. White for this, since he will not do a tummy tuck on smokers. More

This may very well be one of the hardest things I have every put to paper. I have started this note, in my head, over and over, yet always coming to the same conclusion; Words just don't seem adequate to express my feelings about my tummy tuck. When I got the news that I would have to have a hysterectomy and there would be another cut to my child-bearing ravaged abdomen, I knew that I had been given the opportunity to have the tummy tuck I had dreamed about for years. I asked my gynecologist for some references and began the process. We narrowed the search to two names, given the credentials we had checked and the information we had. I scheduled my first consultation with another Plastic Surgeon, had my meeting, and left not feeling very confident about the time we had spent together. Then on to my first meeting with you and your staff. From the first minutes in your office, I was welcomed and put at such ease with the process. When you introduced yourself and began telling me your philosophy on work ethic and diligence, I was immediately confident that I had met someone with my same standard of dedication to detail. As we talked about how you would follow my gynecologist in the operating room and the great concern you had for setting a surrounding that would insure the best outcome for me, I was put further at ease. You allowed me to ask all the questions I could think of, and then you filled in with all the expertise you had amassed over the years. When I left that first visit, I was sure you would be my choice of surgeons for my much anticipated tummy tuck. The day of pictures, you and your staff were so careful to keep me comfortable with the process. As scheduling time for the surgery approached, your wonderful staff even took care of that for me. Dealing with a doctor outside of the Presbyterian Hospital, your staff made all the calls to coordinate the schedules between both doctors, found the most reasonable surgical unit, and set the schedule for the surgery. I simply waited for the phone call telling me that it had all been arranged and what I would need to do next. Two days before surgery, you met with my husband and me, making sure that he was as comfortable with the process as I had become. You allowed him to ask all the questions he could think of, and then again, you filled in all that he would need to know as to what to expect and how he would care for me after surgery. I left that day telling you that you had my complete confidence. Morning of surgery: You met me at the hospital to make sure you had done all the pre-surgical marking you needed to do to ensure the best outcome for me. Then you sat and waited until my gynecologist had finished and you moved in to do your work. And that is where my words fall short. I knew my tummy would look better and you would do the very best that could be done, but I had no idea that it would turn out as well as it has. Best expressed by my husband It's as if you were a canvas waiting for an artist to do a magnificent work, and Dr. White was the artist, and he has done beautiful work. I could not be happier with the choice that I made both to do the tummy tuck and with you as my surgeon. The post surgical care has been given with the same attention to detail and concern for the best outcome for me. I have been checked on often, had follow up visits, and have been cared for when I had questions. Everything that you told me would happen has happened. My appetite has diminished, allowing me to loose extra weight since the surgery. Friends and family can't get over the change in me, and I have recommended you to all that ask. In fact, I am so pleased with the outcome, that as I write this note, I am about 5 days out from having a breast lift to complete the project! I am grateful for your artistry. Can't wait to see the outcome! More

I want to convey a special heartfelt thanks and my gratitude to Dr. Steven White, his nursing, and office staff for their warmness to make me feel like a real person who really does matter --- and not just another patient number. Dr. White is such a genuine treasure as a person who really cares about his patients prior to, during, and after surgery has been performed with weekly and monthly follow-ups. He takes a great deal of his time to insure that each one of his patients are educated regarding their procedures and expectations (without hurrying) and always pays special attention to every detail to ensure the best results possible. He amazes and astounds me. While most doctors are spending their off-time playing golf or doing some other activities, Dr. White is visiting his patients in the hospital, calling them at home to check on them, or still working when not operating on weekends to attend seminars that will further his education and improve those heavenly skills for which he is so noted today --- being double board certified and listed as one of the best doctors in Dallas and Texas by the media. It's no wonder that his patients come from all over the U. S. and out of the country. Initially, I accompanied my daughter for her pre-op breast and tummy tuck appointment. At that time, I never dreamed that at the age of 62 there was also hope for me to shed unwanted years of massive abdominal protruding and overhanging skin. I never hesitated and scheduled my surgery for one month ahead ... and today without regrets. The surgery was performed successfully and my results have been more that I had ever hoped. He has given me back the tummy of my teenage years --- comparable to my daughter's well-contoured tummy. After only 3 months, I have lost 20 lbs --- dropped from a size 16 to a size 10-12 (and still dropping weight) --- and getting lots of compliments. I lost all the ugly, unsightly, aged skin --- including the scar from a previous appendectomy! I have already given your name to my friends and would recommend you in a heartbeat minute to anyone else. If I decide to have any other cosmetic surgery performed, it would be a no-brainer --- you are my first and only choice. Thanks so much for giving me my life back! More

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, what more can I say! I am thrilled with the results of my surgery. I've worn a bikini for the first time in my life ---other than when I was 5! I feel great in my clothes – thanks to no longer having to deal with my muffin top. My stomach is so flat that I've had friends ask if I've had my breasts done, (which I haven't). Your care and attention to detail before and after the surgery were amazing. I called you a few days post-op on Thanksgiving day, during the middle of your Thanksgiving meal (I'm pretty sure), in a panic and you were so caring and reassuring – it was nothing, just crazy fears. Your bedside manner is second to none! Thank you again! More

I love the results! Dr. White did an amazing job! I have a tight, flat tummy...the kind you see on the runways of New York. At a follow-up appointment, I jokingly told Dr. White that I wasn't going to wear anything more than dental floss. While I might not take it that far, it's nice to know I could! Thanks for the time and patience you took in sculpting my new, amazing tummy. I'll be back for another enhancement (breast implants) in the near future Dr. White! You truly are THE BEST!! More

Where do I begin? I truly believe Dr. White is the best at what he does. His nurse and the rest of his staff are top notch as well. During our first consultation, I could tell that Dr. White's warm-side of cocky nature was not just talk. He has the skills to back up his confidence! That's exactly what I wanted in my surgeon. And I got it with Dr. White. He takes longer than other surgeons to do a tummy tuck, but that's because he does everything himself. And he will not stop until it's done exactly to his stringent standards. His hourly fees may seem high, but they are actually right on par with the other surgeons that I interviewed. He just takes longer to achieve a superior result, so the total comes out higher. But it is WELL worth it. There are some things in life that you can afford to skimp on. For me, my tummy tuck was NOT one of them! I'd had twins 4 years prior to finally taking the steps toward getting my surgery. As a fitness instructor, I had gone as far as I could with diet and exercise. I was as close to my pre-pregnancy body as I was going to get without surgery. Realizing the extra flab and skin in my abdomen was never going to go away, I launched into my quest to find the best surgeon for the job. As an engineer (by day), this meant methodically approaching the search with the level of detail required to be SURE that I chose the very best! I first used several issues of D Magazine to narrow down my list of possible doctors. I then settled on three surgeons with whom to consult. Dr. White was one of them. Dr. White spent quite a long time with me during our first consultation—explaining the surgery step by step, telling me why and how his procedure is superior to that of other surgeons, drawing pictures to illustrate everything, and making sure to answer any questions I had along the way. He even offered to do a follow-up consultation at no charge so that I could bring my husband and address any concerns he had. But I didn't need that follow-up visit. I had already decided to go with Dr. White. Once the date of my surgery arrived, I felt like I had an excellent idea of what was about to happen. And his attention to detail continued throughout the pre-op and course of my surgery. It's been 8 months since I got my tummy tuck. Dr. White is still seeing me for follow-up visits (as he does with all of his patients) just to make sure that everything is perfect. I won't lie, it was a rough 10 days or so right after surgery, but Dr. White was there every step of the way toward recovery. He came to the hospital at night the day of my surgery to get me up and walking for the first time, and he monitored me closely in the following weeks—giving me a longer leash between visits only as he was absolutely certain that I was ready. I can't help but tease him about the mere 8 weeks of wearing the compression garment. But I wouldn't have had it any other way. I knew his rules were there to make sure we achieved the best result possible. It's summer time now, and every time I put on my bikini with confidence, I think about how just 8 months ago, I couldn't stand to see myself naked---much less bare my midriff where anyone else could see! But I would do it ALL again in a heart beat. And without a doubt, I'd choose Dr. White. More

I would fist like to give a BIG THANK YOU to Dr. White and his staff for making me feel like his only patient. Dr. White did an excellent job explaining what to expect and always answering my questions --- no matter if they were two months after surgery. Since surgery, clothes are fitting better and for the first-time ever I can actually feel more confident about myself (and don't feel like other people are looking at my extra skin). People at work have noticed the change and wonder what kind of diet I am on. The next question is When did I get a boob job? I was wearing a 12 (now an 8) --- when I can start buying new clothes?!!

I am totally happy with the results of my surgery. I have really enjoyed trying on clothes and having extra room! This was my first time to have any surgery --- much less something so dramatic. Per Dr. White's instructions/request - I feel it is a necessity to have friends/family with you before, during, and after the surgery. That kind of support is crucial. Dr. White, as well as his team, are the best! I was so grateful that there were no shocks...I mean shocks in the way of unforeseen things. The procedure Dr. White did was dead on. Everything he said he was going to do...everything he said I would be dealing with through recovery... EVERYTHING was set in stone. He even knew of, or should I say, prepared me for any strange emotional roller coasters. If ---- I mean, when ---- I have any more surgery (cosmetic), I will look no further than Dr. White. Thanks for a great experience and a tight tummy! More

RECOMMENDATION FROM A HUSBAND'S PERSPECTIVEAfter exhaustive testing and multiple doctor visits, my wife Robin presented me the option of tummy tuck surgery as a viable solution for her stomach discomfort. Although she wasn't 100% certain this would resolve her issues, she felt very strongly that it would have a strong chance of effectiveness. Additionally, I learned through her that this was also going to resolve a major self-image concern that she was not able to completely move past after having our children. My initial reaction when looking at the major cost outlay was what other alternatives we could explore and more importantly, the risk of surgery and potential it would not be an effective solution. After meeting with you at your practice Dr. White, your expertise, thoroughness and commitment to a successful resolution for my wife became clear and I was convinced we needed to move forward. During the procedure, and immediately after the procedure my belief in you and your approach was elevated even further. Not only did you explain each step of the procedure to ensure my understanding and that of Robin's, you involved me in the process with your thoroughness. Thanks to your patience and coaching, I was able to participate with confidence in helping my wife during this important time and support your efforts for the ultimate outcome. My recommendation to any husband/partner of a potential patient is to recognize there is a price for perfection; and you will do all you can with the resources available to reach that level for your patients. Thanks for your patience and commitment to excellence as we are back on our way to the quality of life we had years ago thanks to your successful solution. My only regret is that we didn't move forward with your services sooner! More

I would like to thank Dr. White for the results of my surgery, as well as, my fiance's. He exceeded our expectations and made sure we were comfortable at all times. The entire staff was and always is extremely kind. Before my operation BI was afraid of the results but like I said before my expectations were exceeded and my self-esteem also received a boost! I feel a lot better about myself and since my surgery the attention I receive has changed for the good! I'm glad I was able to find Dr. White (a wonderful, talented and extremely professional surgeon). After our results, both my nephews are now considering going with Dr. White and getting some procedures done and I may be considering a few more things myself!!! More

After researching doctors for a couple of years you become very familiar and disappointed with the steady lack of attention the doctors and their offices deliver. In fact, you become very in tune to what it is you ARE looking for. So after my first visit with Dr. White, I was shocked that I had found my doctor. In fact, my husband didn't understand why I was so hyper about the initial visit with Dr. White, having seen my reaction to the others. What a well-oiled operation (no pun intended...)! Dr. White and his entire team are amazing. Human nature tells us to look for the holes in things, there are no holes in this team. And I say team because it was very clear that Dr. White trusts his staff completely. People want service, care, and most importantly TIME because the details are discovered in the time given. Did I ever get time!! And I am still getting it from the entire staff with every post-surgery appointment. One of Dr. Whites jewels in his practice is his nurse, Jennifer. I ask a thousand questions, notepad in tow, and she always pre and post-surgery had answers, tips (amazing tips) and suggestions that endeared me to her. She is exactly the type of person needed in this environment, what a caveat he has in her. One of the things I truly appreciated with Dr. White was his understanding of why I wanted to improve my body. He didn't have this planned speech or suggest additional procedures; he simply listened to my wishes. The nurses that cared for me at the Texas Institute for Surgery were amazing as well and a couple of them had been in this field for years. I asked them about Dr. White and each of them said I had the best they had ever seen. My results are incredible. The posture I had been working hard to maintain just happens, my clothes fit the way I had always wanted them to, and my husband loves the renewed spark I have. At 45 years of age, it was exactly what I had hoped for to motivate me to stay fit, boost my ego, and make me feel great! More

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! It's hard to find the words to describe my gratitude. You are an amazing doctor, Dr. White. The first time I met you I knew you would be the one to perform my surgery (and I had met several doctors in the DFW area). What did I like about you? 1. You are a good listener. You gave me the time to share my story, my challenges and my reasons for choosing plastic surgery2. You are VERY competent surgeon: You described the procedure in detail, spoke about the risks involved as well as the extra measures you take to minimize them. No doctor had done that so far in so much detail!!! You go the extra mile3. You LOVE what you do: It was very clear from the beginning that you LOVE your profession. Your passion clearly came through and I admire that4. You have the personal touch: From the first appointment, to my surgery, to all the follow-ups you took the time to be there personally. I never felt that I was not a priority. THANK YOU!!! 5. You are the BEST: Not only was my surgery a great success so was my recovery; All thanks to you. I was off pain killers completely in 4 days and my tummy tuck was a 7 hour surgery. It was the attention to detail that made my recovery so great. 6. Your staff is AMAZING: Everyone on the staff is welcoming and accommodating. Not only are you the best but you surround yourself with the BEST. Once again I would like to thank you and your staff. Had it not been for you I am not sure I would have had my surgery so please keep doing what you do!!! More

Having a tummy tuck was a dream I had for many years after giving birth to three children. After giving birth to my children, I was left with loose, overstretched tummy skin. Weight loss and exercise did not make the loose, stretched skin on my tummy go away. Now that my youngest is twenty-one - I felt it was time to make the effort to change my appearance. I began the search in earnest a little over two years ago for a surgeon. I met with two surgeons before finding Dr. White. Neither gave me the confidence or encouragement to put myself through a challenging physical change and not be satisfied with the outcome. However, Dr. White immediately gave me a high level of comfort and understood my body image goals. Even though I had a fear of going through the surgery, Dr. White explained all these wonderful changes I would experience as a result of the surgery. He was even able to make me excited about having the surgery. The changes were immediately apparent following the surgery, but the real changes really only started to sink in now that I am resuming a more normal, active schedule. My posture has greatly improved – a positive consequence of the surgery and something I had not placed a high premium. However, this speaks volumes of the look I now have. It is more than a look – it is me! I actually have curves now, a cinched waist, a beautiful belly button, and nice trim hips. I look at myself in almost disbelief that the results of my tummy tuck were extraordinary; even go as far to say magnificent. I highly recommend Dr. White. He truly is the best plastic surgeon. He is an artist in sculpting and understanding the beauty of human anatomy. Thank you Dr. White! More

Beautiful, sexy, confident; this is how I feel after Dr. White worked his magic on ! I can now fit in my clothes without belly hang-over and I look amazing. I greatly appreciate the person care and the numerous efforts by Dr. White and his staff to make me feel comfortable, safe, and knowledgeable about the procedure. I also appreciate not having to wait in the waiting room for long periods of time before seeing the doctor. Thank you for your care and restoring my confidence and body. Dr. White is a genius! More

For nearly three years I was hesitant to undergo tummy tuck surgery for three major reasons: First, fear of a bad experience (as I had in my first cesarean). Second, fear that it wouldn't come out as nice as seen in magazines (which appear retouched photos!). Third, fear that, after finishing the surgery, I would never again see the doctor who performed it. My mother-in-law had undergone rhinoplasty many years ago, and she encouraged me by saying that she had a good experience and that it helped her self- image. But most of importantly, she encouraged me to seek out the best doctor I could find. Well I found him. All those fears were ghosts that Dr. White scared away with his knowledge and personality. I am 1000% satisfied with all the professionalism of Dr. White. From the moment my husband and I entered the first consultation, we obtained the accurate information that we wanted. Our questions were answered without even asking! Jennifer, Meagan, and Shannon were always friendly and aware of everything. We were given detailed instructions in the manual, explaining all phases of surgery, before and after...which even described the roller coaster of emotions! Everything was there and very well explained, without forgetting any details. My pains were with me only in my stay in the hospital, and were well-controlled. For the other days I used just Tylenol and the other medicines as recommended in the instructions. In the hospital we felt very good when my husband and I got to see Dr. White later on the same day of the operation, and he showed us the immediate result of surgery. We could not believe my curves! That night Dr. White got me out of the hospital bed and helped me walk in the hall—I never expected that! The nurses were following all the instructions, but it was he who made me walk. Actually, I felt that everything was in perfect control. I do not think any nurse would have the patience and charisma to make me laugh at that critical moment --- he spoke to me in my walk and said, It's fun! Now I laugh again heartily and say I'd do it again, and I recommend it without any fear... if they say He is expensive I say No. Expensive is if they do badly and you have to do it again!!Not only do I have an excellent appearance but I also have a great motivation to live a better lifestyle. I love knowing that I can wear my skirts tight around my waist, like I was 20 years old. After the surgery I now use size 8 in pants and blouses in S, when before I wore 12-14 and L or XL, and all this in just 4 months – without yet starting a daily workout regimen! I just started again at the gym with walking and dancing, Zumba... and I'm super happy to wear the workout clothes to the gym that are always so tight. I feel very sexy, like I've actually done many abdominals! Thanks Dr. Steven White, I wish that God continues to enlighten him in his knowledge and his great work to make others happy!! More

I need to start off by apologizing. You performed by procedures over 10 months ago, so this letter is long overdue! I want you to know that I am STILL giddy!! However, I must confess, I do miss your beautiful office staff and all YOUR energy and awesome sense of humor. The professionalism and exquisite level of care given to me from you and your team from the initial consult, to surgery, and through my recovery went above and beyond my expectations!! It gave me the peace and excitement that I needed. There are not enough words to express my gratitude! I am in love with the new me, and the confidence that comes with it. My husband would also like to relay tons of thanks...he REALLY loves the new me too (wink, wink). Thank you again Dr. White. My heart overflows and I am forever grateful. I FEEL BEAUTIFUL!! :) More

I had been looking into getting a tummy tuck almost immediately after my second son was born. Aftercountless hours looking at photos online, I just couldn't bring myself to trading a little bit of skin for thehigh, rigid scars that were starring back at me. Fast forward 10 years — enter Dr. White. I was not a big person and still wore form-fitting clothes and bikini's. I had become a master at hiding mytrouble spots: compression suits, pulling panties up a little higher to cover that little pooch, wore clotheswith a little more rouching in the midsection, etc. While I felt good IN clothes, I longed to feel even better OUT of clothes! I have found that when you're not completely comfortable in your own skin, your personal and intimate life may be neglected. The decision to have a tummy tuck by Dr. White was easy, especially since he had already performedmine and my sister's breast augmentation. I was astounded at how low and symmetrical the tummytuck scars were. I had seen other tummy results by him and was blown away by the contouring in thebelly. Once I made up my mind to have the procedure I was ecstatic! I wasn't nervous about therecovery or pain, just concerned that I might have nausea after the anesthesia. The morning of surgery I was met with smiling faces at the hospital from the nursing staff stating howgreat Dr. White was. Surprisingly enough, the pre-op education that I was given was extremely thoroughso I wasn't nervous at all; in fact, I, and my husband, felt well-prepared going in for the procedure. I wasalso very impressed that I had the opportunity to not only visit at length with Dr. White beforehand, butalso with the anesthesiologist (a doctor, not a nurse), the operating room nurse as well as other staffthat I may come in contact with during my surgery. To see their faces before I was put under was a reliefin itself. Awaking with blurry eyes, I remember wondering if they had to stop my surgery because I literally feltNO PAIN, but more importantly there was NO NAUSEA!! As a blue, blurry mass approached, I quicklyacknowledged that it was Dr. White. He announced that the surgery went great & that he was able toget above my belly button and remove a hideous tattoo I had branded upon my skin years earlier. YES!! I spent 2 grateful nights in the hospital and was discharged on a Thursday evening. I was anxious aboutreturning home to my children and routine. I spent the next day at home alone, bored to tears, wandering the house. By Saturday, I was itching to get out and into the world of the living! Pain wasn't even an issue! I took Tylenol for a few days following surgery (I was off pain pills completelyby the time I was discharged). My biggest complaint was that I was bored! I got caught up onancestry. com- that's another story! By day 7 I was back at work! Sure I was slower than usual, but I felt fine. For me, the second week was a little more emotionally difficult than the first week. By this time, my kids and husband were ready tocontinue their routines and while I was feeling a ton better, my body kept reminding me that I just hadsurgery! I think most of it was that I felt guilty for going through the surgery, thus leaving my family tofend for themselves — looking back, they were completely fine and stated they enjoyed ordering outevery night! That's a mom's guilt for ya! We are always putting others before ourselves. It has now approaching 2 years since my tummy tuck and I couldn't be more thrilled! It has taken me along time to write a review because I've been out enjoying my new confidence at the lake and otheractivities with my family — activities that I would have otherwise avoided. There is not a day that goes by that I don't stop and admire my new stomach. I finally have my curves back! I have women ask me how much I work out and I smile and relay to them that I don't — it's Dr. White! People are always curious what the scar looks like; I gleefully show them the almost nonexistent scar that hides beneath my low-rise bikini bottoms! My husband is equally as proud to tell the tale of the tummy tuck as I am! Looking back, I'm so thankful that I chose Dr. White. His poise and dedication to each patient is evidentupon first contact at the consultation and continues throughout the recovery. If you are looking for acheap surgery —this isn't the place, but remember, you get what you pay for! I would gladly pay doublefor the results I see in the mirror every day! More

After loosing weight, the stomach is still stretched and it defianly makes my self confidence diminish.Hubby and I are finished having children and I work full-time, so we do have busy lives, but we are excited that I can do this for myself.

Smaller Than I Have EVER Been! - Dallas, TX - Dr. White is such a rare breed. He has the rare combination of being SO brilliant and SO personable. I have met with multiple surgeons and most of them have a very difficult time interacting with the patients. They are clearly intelligent and skilled, but don't have much tolerance for talking or even smiling for that matter. :-) Dr. White smiles, listens, talks, tells relevant stories, hugs, compliments, cares, encourages, and so much more! The only rating where I did not give him 5 stars was "wait times", but I probably wouldn't change that about him, b/c he gives his patients his time and that is so rare these days with doctors! Ironically I was actually scheduled with another surgeon and about 2 mos before someone I trust told me about Dr. White. I was intrigued with all the things they had to say about him so I spent the rest of the weekend scouring his website and reading people's testimonies. I called his office first thing the following Monday and scheduled a consultation with him even though he charges a fee (which had turned me off about another doctor that I had written off my list - ha ha!). Thank God I did! I knew when I met him that he was who I wanted to do my surgery and I am SO GLAD I found him!! More

11 mo PO New scar pics - I choose Dr Steven J. White after lots of research. He is consistently in the Top 100 Doctors in Dallas report. He uses advanced techniques that prevent bruising and encourage optimal healing. His results pictures are amazing, and I was able to read an entire booklet of positive reviews from previous patients. He spent so much time with us, and also has some amazing videos you can watch. He makes you feel really informed and confident in his skills. His nurse Jennifer was a wealth of information, and Jazmin was so helpful too. Also, at the hospital, all of the nurses went on and on about Dr White's precision and caring. He actually came at 6;45 am after surgery (which ended at 9pm), because he wanted to be the one to get me out of Bed correctly the first time. He checked on me 3 times in the 2 days I was there. I felt safe and well cared for. More

Getting Scared - Dallas, TX - Dr. White and his team are amazing. He is the most well prepared plastic surgeon I've ever heard of. He has you fully prepared for everything from before surgery (getting the right pillows and meds) to after surgery (knowing what position and angles to sit and lay in for less swelling) It's been a hard recovery and will be a long recovery but I'm sure I will look amazing. He even repaired my hernia that he found when he was in there. Looking forward to this amazing body to come. More

I have never seen another doctor, can't imagine another doctor, who has thought through every aspect about his work in this detail.

53 Years Old This Year - Dallas, GA - I'd had and reared 3 children. I was getting a divorce. I needed to feel comfortable and empowered.Doc of Ageless - 1 year later. Very difficult surgery. Very happy with him and myself one year later. I can challenge any 20something to hold a "plank" longer that I!At 53, I have not starved myself, and I'm NOT going to get into a bikini. And, that OK with me. I am strong; my bmi is fabulous; my core strength is outstanding; my personal life is amazing, and I am happy. I am happy with my body.I don't know where he gets the time (and I'm sure his wife becomes a little angry at times), but Doc of Ageless is extremely thorough. I wrote a review approximately 9 months ago. The recovery SUCKS.... but I would do it again, IF Dr. Steven White preformed the procedure. Period. I have attached a photo of this "old" 53 year young female.I hope I have helped you with this review. More

The Best Plastic/cosmetic Surgeon - Dallas, TX - You just cant go wrong with any procedure you have done with Dr. White. He is amazing. He is such a perfectionist with everything he does. To be able to get a Dr. that is a perfectionist and has a great bedside manor. Unheard of!! Just the nicest kindest and most qualified Dr I have ever used.Dr White did my tummy tuck revision which is not an easy procedure to do. My former Dr really botched up my tummy area also leaving "dog ears" on the ends of the incision. Big No No!! I flew in from Jacksonville Beach Florida to have Dr White do my revision on the tummy tuck and then 1 year latter a revision on the lipo. I was so worried that I was going to have to live with this botched work. But Dr White did an amazing job on both procedures. I just can't say enough about his bedside manor. It doesn't matter what day of the week or hour of the day it is he is there in the hospital checking on you making sure your off your pain meds and making sure your up walking around.I absolutely love my results and I'm so glad I used Dr White.

I Love my New Flat Tummy!! - Dallas, TX - In October of 2014 I made a life changing decision to have cosmetic surgery, namely an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). I had spent the last two years losing in excess of 100 lbs and now I wanted to try and get my stomach back to some resemblance of what it was before I had my daughter years ago. I had battled with my weight for many years, and as a result my stomach was distorted and very ugly. I worked so hard to lose my weight, but still I was not truly able to wear the sizes I should be, and what I did wear ended up with a nice double roll muffin top over the top of it. I hated how I looked but thought I had to deal with it and just be happy that I had lost the weight. That is until I visited USA Plastic Surgery in Dallas and spent some time talking with Dr. White. He did a consultation with me and showed me photos of his work and then showed me what he could do for me, which I had such difficulty comprehending because it sounded more like magic than surgery. He assured me that he could get me where I wanted to be physically, all I had to do was trust him. I set my surgery date for 8 months out so I could get through the summer without restrictions, but all summer I was so torn about the surgery and several times I actually backed out. My husband told me that I should go through with the surgery because it would be a morale boost for me, and would in his opinion “give me a better quality of life.” So I agreed and dove head first into preparing for the surgery. The obstacle that had caused the hesitation was the self-doubt of the end results for me and would they be worth it. I met with Dr. White and his staff and did all the preparations for the surgery and every time I was there, the staff made me feel as if I was the only patient they had and that any questions or needs I had, were their ultimate goal to resolve and answer. I had my surgery on October 7th and when I woke up, I already had photos of how the end result had looked afterwards. Dr. White had been able to remove much more excess skin than originally thought and we ended up with 7.6 lbs of skin total removed. I was up walking within 14 hours after my surgery, with Dr. White at my side encouraging me and pushing me through it. I listened to everything he told me and did exactly as he had instructed. I took only one pain pill that evening after surgery, and never took another pain pill or even Tylenol from that point forward. Dr. White came by the hospital every day to check on me and get me up and walking, even showing up at 11pm at night to check on me. Every single visit to the office after surgery for follow up has been amazing, the staff is so supportive and Dr. White is so encouraging and honest with you. The staff spends time with you and explains where you are in progress and what to expect as you move forward, it is more like a visit to see a friend than a follow up surgery visit. I am now 7 weeks out from surgery and am down from a size 24 (before I lost my weight) to a medium off the rack in clothes, have lost another 13 lbs so far, and am still losing and shrinking. So this is another great benefit that I didn’t expect but gladly accept. I think the best thing that has happened to me as a direct result of this surgery is the one compliment I get every day from people that I see either at work or places I frequent, and that compliment is “you look so happy”. I am still shocked when I hear this because I didn’t realize just how much this had changed my outlook on life and how apparent the change had been. I think the thing I have found that I like the most so far, is the boost to my self-confidence and the fact of knowing that I look good. You may ask if I checked into other surgeons and the answer is yes. I did not like their work, the scars they left were very wide and ugly which made it a tradeoff of one ugly tummy for another ugly scar. I would most definitely recommend Dr. White as the surgeon to use, he is beyond caring, beyond amazing and I call him an artist as opposed to a doctor. He has changed my life forever and I can never begin to repay him for what he has given me back. More

At the age of 61, I wanted a tummy tuck. Not only did Dr. Steven J. White come highly recommended to me but my fiance did his homework, and coincidentally, he only wanted me to see Dr. White. Why? Because he is known as "The Best" !! Dr. White and his staff explained, in great detail (and with a take home booklet), every step of the surgery from pre-op to post-op. Was I nervous and scared? Not one bit. I had the utmost confidence going in and now I am on my 10th day of recovery. Every step happened exactly the way Dr. White and his staff described it would.

At age 64, my 28 year old breast implants decided they?d been around long enough, and one started leaking. After my annual mammogram, my initial instincts were confirmed, and I needed to have them remove. I hadn?t a clue where to go, since the doctor who had done the original surgery had retired six months prior to my issue. I spoke with my dermatologist, and asked if she could give me any recommendations. Her immediate answer was Dr. Steven White. She?d seen quite a bit of his work, and put him at the top of her list. The following day, I called Dr. White?s office and within a few days, had my initial consultation. My implants needed to be removed, and I chose to do nothing else at that time? perhaps a lift in the future. I also discussed the possibility of a tummy tuck? just a thought. I have exercised several days (4 or 5) a week for the past six years, and I can?t seem to make a difference in my shape or my size (I?d like to blame gravity, but I?m sure age has something to do with it!) I have always been reasonably fit, watched my diet, and watched my waist get thicker and my belly softer!!! So, five weeks after my breast surgery?which was uncomfortable for a couple of weeks, but not unbearable, my husband and I decided I should proceed with an abdominoplasty. I mean, if you don?t have any boobs left, why would you want a belly! After surgery, I must say, the discomfort was pretty significant for the first two weeks, but the results are terrific. I may not have much of a chest but I actually have a great (OK, smaller) waist and the flattest tummy EVER! I can?t say enough about Dr. White and his incredible staff! They all act as if you are the only patient they are dealing with. They call regularly to be sure you?re doing all right. There are numerous follow-up appointments to check progress, and if I have a question that may seem ridiculous to them, they will patiently explain everything. Dr. White has a great bedside manner? the night of my procedure; he was at the hospital late in the evening checking on me. The next day, he was back to show my husband how to get me out of bed and help with the drains. I really should have done all of this earlier in my life? why wait, but then I just kept thinking I could get my shape back with HARD work! Well, I was wrong. So, thanks, Dr. White and staff? trust me, I?m passing your name along. Oh, in case you?re wondering if I?d ever have another procedure?maybe, but would I go anywhere else?NOT A CHANCE! More

Dr White put together a "Dream" team of doctors to perform both hysterectomy and tummy tuck at same time. Dual procedures require the best to minimize risk and complications. The attention to the details shown by Dr. White is second to none I have seen. This included personally came to walk me twice a day and on weekend; performing comprehensive blood baseline tests (to compare pre vs post operative results); use of anticoagulants to prevent blood clots; use of personal techniques to prevent dog ears and healing issues; and detailed videos which explain ever aspect of entire procedure and recovery. After only 6 weeks, my scar is about the width of a side of paper and my sides are beginning to have that sculptured look. Even my a valley is beginning to form on my abdomen like a six pack without any exercise on my part. Dr White is a true master surgeon who not only creates a natural and sculptured look but minimizes the risks of surgery. More

I could not be more pleased with Dr. White's work! I would recommend him to absolutely anyone. After my pregnancies, my belly was never going to return to it's pre-pregnancy shape. After my abdominoplasty with Dr. White, not only do I have a flat stomach and an amazing, sculpted waistline, but my abdomen looks so much better than it ever has in my entire life! I never thought looking like this would be possible for me, and I'm so grateful to Dr. White for his careful and detailed work. While I know he has many other patients, every time I see him he makes me feel like I am his only patient. He is so caring and dedicated to his work and he truly wants to get the best results possible for his patients. His attention to detail is unbelievable. The first step he takes is to understand your personal body type, where the asymmetries are, and how he will perform the procedure with absolute precision. From that moment on, he's with you every step of the way to make sure you're progressing nicely and that there are no problems. His staff is amazing as well. They are professional, well trained, and easy to reach and talk with. I am so, so happy. He's simply the best! Thank you, Dr. White! Happy Mommy! More

I highly recommend Dr. White to anyone who is considering a plastic surgery procedure. I am certain that you will be totally amazed with the results.Sandra More

My name is Tami and I am 49 years old. I had a sculpted Tummy Tuck by Dr. White. I had previously had liposuction of the abdominal area. They did extreme liposuction of the lower abdominal area which left pockets and ripples and did not do any or much liposuction of the upper area and I had a little flap which hung over even in a standing position. I was unhappy for many years and was very nervous to try and fit it. I had my first consultation with Dr. White and knew I could trust him to fix my abdominal area with his sculpting Tummy Tuck. Dr White is very meticulous in your preparation for surgery, immediately after surgery and during your recovery time to achieve your best results. I am 2 months post surgery and I am so excited with the results and how I look. My cloths fit so much better and the hour glass shape I now have I am in love with. I would highly recommend Dr. White , he not only is the best Plastic Surgeon, he truly cares about his patients and takes time to talk with you and make you feel comfortable in the decisions you are making. The staff at Dr. Whites office are amazing too, they are very knowledgeable and were always helpful in asking questions before and after my surgery and during my appointments in the office. More

Being a nurse I was very critical in my choice of who I wanted to do my tummy tuck. I have been waiting to do this for the past 3 years after having lost over 70 lbs since high school. From the initial consultation, follow up appointments and end result of the procedure I cannot even begin to express how happy I am I chose Dr. White and his staff. His bedside manner is top notch and he understands that the procedures people choose to get are yes, to look better-but mostly to feel better about yourself. I am only 6 days post op and up and moving around and anxious to show off my results this summer! More

My name is Andy and last year, through diet and exercise, I lost 150 pounds. I was happy with the weight loss, but there was still a reminder of the "old" me. I had excess skin around my abdomen. My mom and I began to discuss the possibility of abdominoplasty . I was only 20 at the time, so my parents had a very active role in my decision to have the surgery. My mom spent countless hours researching the procedure and looking for a doctor to perform the surgery. Because of my age, the surgery being an elective procedure, and insurance not covering the cost, my mom insisted on literally having the best doctor do the surgery. After weeks of research, she found Dr. Steven J. White, in Dallas. We called and made an appointment for a consultation. We knew immediately after consulting with Dr. White and interacting with his staff, this was the doctor for me. We did not even go for a second consult. From the moment I met Dr. White I knew he was my doctor and could not wait to have the surgery done. From pre-op to post-op, there was not a single question he did not address. His attention to detail is unreal. He truly lives the motto, "If you're going to do something, do it right!" Because this was my first surgery I was worried about "going under", but Dr. White was so enthusiastic the day of my surgery, I felt at ease. Because he will not stop until he determines he has done the best your body will allow him to do, my surgery lasted almost 10 hours. But, the results speak for themselves!! Today, I am 2 !/2 months post-op. I have lost another 20 pounds, I am back to working out at the gym, and getting ready for the summer. The surgery has been life changing. Dr. White helped me complete my weight loss journey. I could go on forever about him and his staff, but it comes down to this....if you are considering having any type of cosmetic surgery, you have to go see Dr. White!! He is an incredibly gifted surgeon. More

After my 20 year old son lost over 150 pounds last year, through diet and exercise, we had to address the issue of excess skin. The search was on to find a surgeon who could help him complete his weight-loss journey. We found that surgeon in Dr. White!! He is an incredibly gifted surgeon who takes great pride in his work. If you are considering cosmetic surgery, you must visit Dr. White and his staff. I cannot say enough about him, his staff, and the results we have seen with my son. More

Amazing Results and Recovery from Complicated Tummy Tuck - Dallas, TX - Dr Steven White and his staff are absolutely the best! Dr White is an amazing surgeon who performed a difficult and time consuming tummy tuck with hernia complications surgery on me. He showed amazing attention to detail (precision surgery in his words) and tremendous focus on the best and least painful outcome for me (eliminating preventable issues in his words). I was under his knife 8 hours, but off narcotics 12 hours after surgery. My "simple" hernia repairs were far more difficult on me! I had lost 50+ lbs of weight but the skin would just not shrink back. And 30 years of hernia problems and shoddy repair work left me with significant scars and scar tissue in my lower abdomen. Just 6 weeks after surgery, I feel like a new man. The difference is indescribable. If Dr White was a brain surgeon, he'd be my brain surgeon (God forbid I need one). He takes his work so seriously that at times I think he was more concerned about the whole process than I was. He is worth what he cost. He indulges you with his and his staff's time to make sure everything goes as well as possible. I really feel like finding someone else in an effort to save some money would have been a mistake for me. I'd rather have the attention I received and quality of life it gave me; save money somewhere else. I'm sure other doctors might be good, but I couldn't imagine anyone being better than Dr White.

At first I was worried about having a tummy tuck because of the cost and the overall recovery time. With two small kids running around at home, I wasn't sure if I could do it. After finding Dr. White in the American Way magazine and checking reviews online I decided to meet with him and his amazing staff. They made me feel so at ease and they were all so knowledgeable I knew I was in the right place. Even though the first few days were awful, now being two months out I wouldn't change it for anything! I look absolutely amazing and I know that Dr. White's precision and expertise are the reason. All I have to say is - you get what you pay for and I got the best! Thank you Dr. White!! More

Dr. Steven White is by far one of the most amazing doctors I have ever had. He was meticulous beyond measure in performing my procedure. I sought Dr White expertise because I had received a botched tummy tuck about 5 years ago from a surgeon in Louisiana. At that time I was attempting to hide a vertical scar from a surgery performed to correct a colon blockage. Unfortunately that surgery left me worse than I was before. I was left with a high uneven scar just under what was supposed to be my belly button. I looked hideous but I just assumed that the doctor did the best that could be done and accepted the fact that I would never wear a two piece again. Dr White changed my life forever. After the first consultation I knew anyone who provides that much information and attention to detail in educating you about your procedure was a "Man among boys" in the world of cosmetic and reconstructive surgeons. He and his staff were warm and receptive to me and made me feel very comfortable about my decision to move forward with my procedure and what I was to expect every step of the way. I have never experienced such professionalism and thoroughness for a surgeon before. My stomach presented many difficult challenges due to scar tissue and a lack of a actual belly button. I was in surgery about 8 hours. Dr White provides precision surgery so that one receives the best possible outcomes with the least amount of complications. Dr. White is extremely conservative when it comes to narcotics which was difficult but his method works if you follow it. My results are unbelievable, I look and feel amazing! Six weeks post op, I am 15 lbs lighter and look better in a bikini than I did before I had my three children all thanks to Dr. White's impeccable skill and attention to detail. I thank God that I didn't try to find someone that was was a little more cost effective for budget. He was worth every cent! I spent countless hours doing my research on surgeons and I can honestly say that it paid off. Dr. White and his staff exceeded my expectations far beyond anything I could have ever imagined! More

I am a 59 year old woman, Dr White performed an extended tummy tuck/tummy sculpt for me and the results are beyond amazing! Years of stretch marks from pregnancies and vertical c-section scars are all gone! He is the ultimate professional. He used a Dr of Anesthesia in a hospital setting, both of which were very reassuring for me and my husband. He PERSONALLY assisted me getting out of the hospital bed 3 times a day for 2 days following surgery and walked me down the hall. No bruising after surgery and I only required Tylenol for pain management. Follow up care has been exceptional. Look no further than Dr. Steven J. White. More

Dr. White Best plastic surgeon in the world and is the only plastic surgeon I trust; he is a perfectionist. Both him and his staff are amazing. Tummy Tuck, Lip fillers, arm liposuction, breast implant removal, breast lift and reduction Tummy Tuck I am 33 years old and when I was in high school weighed 320+ pounds, it took many years to lose a little over 100 pounds which led to a huge insecurity of mine (flabby skin all over my body) When I was 23 in college I went to a plastic surgeon who said he could do my breast lift and implants in one surgery and the price was good, that was a big mistake (you get what you pay for). The outcome was not what I expected at all which didn?t help my insecurities. When I was 27 I decided it was time to get my botched boobs fixed. I did a lot research on the web, and set up over 10 consultants with plastic surgeons. The second I walked into Dr. White?s office I felt comfortable the staff was very helpful and had an immediate connection with everyone. Dr. White suggested I should have a tummy tuck first (my stomach had so much hanging skin I could pitch it and it would stay in place). I took his advice and we booked my surgery (This was the best decision I made and it was a positive start into my journey to come) I never saw my belly button before, never wore a bikini or crop top. Surgery went better than I ever expected, the best part is Dr. White personally came to check up on me and personally helped me get up and walk. When Dr. White took my bandages off for the first time to see my stomach I cried, I couldn?t believe I had a flat stomach and a belly button (the scar is so fine and low no one even notices it) Dr. White made me look better than I imagined, I wore bikini?s all summer with crop tops! Breast Implant Removal and breast lift/reduction- 2 different surgeries After a few years I was ready to come back and get everything fixed. It was time to get my botched boobs fixed. We had one surgery to get the implants removed. As ironic as this sounds my boobs already looked a lot better after Dr. White did the breast implant removal. With the other doctor I had lost some sensation in my nipples. After the breast implant removal, I started getting that sensation back I couldn?t believe it. The breast lift and reduction was a tricky one but like I said I trust Dr. White with my life. Since this would be my second breast lift there were some scares regarding my nipple and the blood circulation. The best part about Dr. White is he is a perfectionist so the surgery took longer but the outcome was amazing! Again better than I expected it to be. The shape is perfect the scar is so small you can barely see it. I was speechless on how perfect they look. Arm Liposuction Due to the amount of weight loss I had a lot of saggy skin. I hated button up shirt or jacket it was always so hard to find some that fit right. Everything was always tight on my arms. Also summers I wanted to wear sleeveless dresses and shirts but my arm made my entire body look so much bigger. Again Dr. White took out more than I thought. My arms have never looked so good in my entire life. I wore a sleeveless dress out for the first time! Even when my mom saw a picture of me with a sleeveless dress she didn?t recognize me. It has helped my convinced so much and I cannot thank Dr. White and his team enough for every they have done for me. Lip Fillers I always had small lips it was like a line for the top lip and a line for the bottom. I didn?t want to go too extreme I wanted the beautiful nature look- I didn?t want where your lips pout out. Dr. White did the fillers perfectly. I have my natural lip shape it came out perfectly! I still have a 360 liposuction planned and a breast augmentation. #bodybydrwhite More

In the last 15 years, I have had mostly terrible experiences with doctors (of all kinds). That all changed when I met Dr. White. He was the first doctor to take his time with me and actually listen to my concerns. I was recommended to him by an accomplished ENT in the Dallas area; his reputation preceded him, and he did not disappoint. Every visit was a pleasure: the staff was friendly and helpful, I rarely waited more than 5 minutes, the office is spectacularly clean and beautiful (not clinical feeling), and checkout was always a breeze. As for Dr. White himself, he must be the friendliest man I've ever met. He truly cares about what he's doing. I believe he is known for his perfectionism...which is exactly what you want in a Plastic Surgeon. I couldn't recommend him highly enough. In fact, the level of care and service I received from him and his staff made me demand more from my primary care physician - to the point that I spent a year finding one who could live up to Dr. White's standards. I had an emergency abdominal surgery in my early 20s due to a horse accident which left me with a disgusting looking "kangaroo pouch". Almost every woman has less than desirable feelings about her belly, but the effects of that surgery just put everything over the top. I was so self-conscious every time I was in the buff, which can wreak havoc on intimate relationships. After lifting weights and working out to the point that I was almost anorexic looking and realizing that my "pouch" was never going away, I finally (almost 10 years later) decided to do something about it. Dr. White gave me back the body I wish I'd had in my 20s! I had so much confidence afterwards and my body was so healthy that my biggest wish finally came true: within 3 months after the surgery, I found out I was pregnant! Now, 8 months later, I can already tell that getting back to my pre-baby/post-surgery body shouldn't be a problem. Thank you Dr. White...you changed my whole life! More

After having my first child at a young age i have always been uncomfortable with the way my tummy looked. i was left with so many stretch marks and loose skin. Of course I was young and knew i wanted to have more children,. Finally after having my second child I decided I needed to do something about my tummy. I was extremely nervous about even going to a consultation since i have seen and heard so many horror stories about botched results. After meeting Dr. White I was so impressed with his wonderful bedside manner and i felt confident that he would do his very best to give me the results I wanted. To no surprise to me, I was more than happy with my results. i am so glad i chose Dr. White to do my surgery, I feel that he takes so much pride in his work and will not stop until he is happy with the outcome. Now, i feel better than ever about myself. No regrets for me! More

I had always wanted a tummy tuck after having a baby over twenty years ago. I had Dr. White on my list of surgeons to contact and finally decided to go ahead with surgery in 2013. I met with Dr. White and his staff regarding the procedure and I was thoroughly impressed. The level of detail and care that he puts into his work is amazing. He is a perfectionist and that is what you should have when you are considering any kind of plastic surgery. His motto is that if you are going to do something, then do it right. The results of my surgery are amazing. I have a sculpted stomach now that looks just as good as it did before the baby. I have definition and a waist again. None of my clothes fit, so I will have to go shopping. I can't say enough about Dr. White, Julie and Jasmine. What a wonderful team. More

A few years ago I wanted to get healthy. I started running and eating a clean lifestyle. After a half-marathon Feb 2012 and a full marathon Feb 2013. I thought by doing all the dieting and exercise that my body would magically be put back into shape. Not so much the case. So my husband and I started to research tummy tuck doctors. When my husband and I went for the consult we were sold. The consult lasted four hours. He is very informative, and was genuinely concerned and compassionate about all of my questions. His work and staff are simply amazing! I was very impressed of all of the precautions and procedures they have in place. I'm 4mos post surgery. I love it! I am back in training for 3 more half marathons I will do in December and February. I'm so thankful to Dr. White and his staff! More

For years after child birth, I had considered abdominoplasty, (tummy tuck) to remove the extra skin which diet and exercise just would not get rid of. Never having any type of surgery which required me to be fully under anesthesia, I was concerned with the risks and recovery. After being diagnosed with multiple uterine fibroids that required a hysterectomy, I decided to look into preforming both a hysterectomy and abdominoplasty at the same time. After consulting with Dr. Steven White, he put together a team of doctors which consisted of the best doctors around to undergo this double procedure. Although my hysterectomy was a simple routine one, rather than an Ob-Gyn, two of the most senior and respected gynecological oncologists were on hand to perform it. This was to prevent another procedure should any complications arise during the hysterectomy and verify that the ovaries and tubes were normal. Dr. White also arranged to have one of the best anesthesiologists to put me under. As testimony to his ability, (even after a longer double procedure), I awoke without any difficulty and was cognizant with a few minutes. No headache, nauseousness, or dizziness it was amazing. The attention to the details shown by Dr. White is second to none I have seen. From minimizing the risks associated with surgery, to techniques on sculpturing the body for optimal results, to physically and mentally preparing the patient for surgery and helping them recover; I have not seen a more caring or committed surgeon before. How many surgeons actually have their patients watch videos so that they know what to expect in the recovery room, (even how to get in and out of the bed). This was a tremendous benefit mentally since I was already familiar with the setup in recovery. Furthermore, how many surgeons actually personally walk you each day and on weekends? That is dedication. In preparation for surgery, Dr. White even had me perform a baseline exam not only with a doctor of Internal Medicine but also a doctor of Hematology Oncology for my blood clotting factor so that I may be administered anticoagulants to prevent blood clots while in surgery and recovering in bed. It was reassuring that Dr. White had a pre-op baseline that he could compare post-op results to. As for some of his personal surgical techniques uses, there was no dog ears or healing issues. In fact, the scar was so small, about the width of an edge of paper. The post-op regiment Dr. White developed not only helps the patient recover but optimizes the results. From the steps for the patient to follow in order to minimize the scar’s width and height to the density of foam used to ensure a perfectly round belly button is defined by Dr. White. My whole experience at the hands of these true master surgeons was incredible. The coordination and caliber of these surgeons to trust each other’s work without complications speaks volumes. The results were even more amazing than I thought possible. After only a few weeks, I not only saw sculpturing of my sides but the formation of a valley on my upper abdomen like a six pack ab. Wow, what can I say, just compare the results to other’s work. You get what you pay for. When it comes to your health and beauty, do not go for bargain rate. The complications are not worth it. Dr. White is the best. More

I am 52 years old and wished I had found Dr. White 20 years ago for my tummy tuck. I had three very large babies and gaining 35 lbs plus with each pregnancy which was a lot for a small frame person. Well, you can read between the lines to imaging how I looked afterwards and how many stretch marks and untoned belly flab I was left with from the pregnancies. I was always so embarrassed, even with my husband to see me through the years. After our third child had graduated from college the topic came up again about my desire to rid my baby flab embarrassment and my husband said, "Find a doctor you feel comfortable with and let's get this taken care of." He didn't have to say it twice! I immediately started my research. I googled as many of us do, and read about many plastic surgeons. Dr. White stood out with all his acclimates year after year, so I took the chance and called to make an appointment. His staff was very professional, honest and courteous, so I made my first appointment. I was afraid with all his accomplishments he would be arrogant and egotistical at minimal. But it was worth the trip to start the search. I was totally wrong! I was totally surprised and very pleased with his down-to-earth personal approach and professionalism. My husband was with me and was very impressed with his thoroughness and attention to details to the well being and outcome of my surgery. He made both of us feel very comfortable and we felt assured I would be in the best hands with no corners cut. My surgery went very well. His attention to detail is phenomenal and I smile each time I look at myself in the mirror. I work in the healthcare field and it is sad to say that there are many physicians that only care about the money and status. Dr. White is one of the few that truly demonstrates how much he cares about his patients well being and outcomes. He once told me that looking good is the initial motivator and vehicle to get to what is really important. How you feel about yourself and the self confidence you build from accomplishing your goals is what it is really all about. Thank you Dr. White! What an amazing experience! More

I was thinking about a tummy tuck for a while. I had a 4-inch thick, vertical scar from an operation 20 years ago. After having two children, I had a lot of loose skin in the front, and a “muffin-top”. They won’t go away no matter how much I exercise. I had a bulge in the upper tummy as well. I stayed away from any tight-fitting clothing so to hide. My waist won’t slim down. I consulted another surgeon for just liposuction options, but she told me it won’t solve my problems. I had a few worries about tummy tuck and postponed the surgery for almost a year. I worried about recovery time being too long and I would not be able to travel. I also didn’t want my friends to find out. People posted bad experience with their tummy tuck, like pain, bumpy scars, and scars too high. Some went to oversees for cheaper prices and had no post-operative care. Dr. White operated on me twice so I don’t have any concerns about post-op care – he was great and took care of me before. If I was going to have a tummy tuck, I would only choose Dr. White. He did a breast augmentation, which was perfect. So after a year, I thought enough is enough – I just had to do it. Surgery was on December, 2012. I stayed an extra day because of an unexpected high blood pressure, for a total of 3 days. Dr. White visited me every day. One day he came late at night. He taught nurses how to move me out of bed. His video was very helpful to have a perfect recover. He personally changed dressing and checked on me. He walked me every day. My husband works many surgeons and he was impressed by Dr. White’s dedication. He treated nurses very well. It was no pain at all for the whole recovery. It is now near five months after the surgery. My waist line dropped 4 inches – from 30 to 26! The result is amazing - I thought my curve is better than I ever had. I never had the confidence to wear bikini. I haven’t bought one yet but I don’t see reasons why not. The ugly scar is gone – Dr. White was able to cut that out. The tummy is tight, and the slim waist is just what I dreamed of. No more loose skin and I feel very confident. Shopping for clothing is very fun. I didn’t tell my friends but they commented several times – even I tried to not show off at all. Dr. White is great – he asked me to trust him for his judgment on approaches, and with the three major surgeries, he definitely earned my trust. He truly has my best interest in mind, and spared no efforts to make sure the outcome is the best. He asked me to wear compression garment – I did everything he asked. More

After having children, I was ready to have a tummy tuck and lipo on my legs. I came across Dr. Steven J. White in the D magazine while on a flight. After having my consultation with him, it only confirmed that I made the right choice. He made me feel completely at ease about the procedure. After the procedure, "I was 100% completely satisfied". He is very precise and takes pride in his work. It definitely shows! My body started to look like when I was in High School and I'm 42. I was so thrilled and pleased with the results, that I had him redo my breast implants a couple of months later. He does amazing work. The anesthesiologist even mentioned that he had his wife go to Dr. Steven White because in his words "he is the best" in Dallas and he's been in surgery with a lot of surgeons. I have to 100% agree with him. He is very passionate and puts a lot of care in his work. I will only go to Dr. Steven White for future procedures. His staff is very knowledgeable, friendly, and absolutely beautiful. Dr. White and his staff are a true class act! More

I had a tummy tuck 15 weeks ago. May I just say that Dr. White is amazing! I went on many consultations and wanted to do this surgery for 12 years. It wasn't until I met Dr. White that it just felt right. Dr. White spent so much time with me prior to surgery, and truly educated me on what it entailed. His skill as a surgeon is incredible, and to top it off, he is just the nicest person. So caring and attentive! My tummy is fabulous -- it looks like it did when I was a teenager :) I wish I found Dr. White 12 years ago... but am thankful to know him now! I highly recommend him! His attention to detail, interest in his patients, and wonderful aftercare is unbelievable. I cannot thank him enough. He has really changed my life! At 46, I feel like I have the tummy I have worked so hard for since I had my children. You owe it to yourself to meet him and hear what he can do for you! More

Dr. Steven White is one of the best plastic surgeons. My decision in electing Dr. White to perform my abdominoplasty, (tummy tuck), was not without due diligence. Having several friends who are either surgeons or anesthesiologists, they witnessed first-hand in the operating room, the work of most Plastic Surgeons in the DFW area. In asking them who they would entrust their family member with in performing the procedure, Dr. Steven White was highly recommended. Inquiring into the details as why they recommend Dr. White, each gave me specifics that nurses or general practitioners outside the operating room would not see. From the way Dr. White prepped the patient; to how he make the incision; to the time he spends on each patient in achieving the optimal results; to the techniques he employs to sculpture the body; to methods he uses in closing to minimize the scars, (especially the ends of the incisions); to the dedication of the patients well bring; and in handpicked the best operating team: Dr. White was unsurpassed. In fact, I was told of instances where some surgeons rely on others to close for them or those who rush through procedures to work more patients in. I was even told to avoid using a nurse anesthetist in order to save money because you never know when a complication may arise and even the surgeon must yield to an Anesthesiologist to revive a patient. I would never want to risk my health or my familys to save a few dollars. Now having gone through my abdominoplasty with Dr. White, I can honestly say he was amazing. Not only is he skillful in achieving the most beautiful form for a patient but was there for them emotionally as well. It was priceless how he put my mind at ease by basically taking my hand and guiding me through the entire procedure. In comparing my experience and results with others who had undergone the same procedure, the differences are apparent. Unlike Dr. White not all Plastic Surgeons established a baseline of blood works prior to compare pre and post-surgery. Not all will administer blood thinners to prevent blood clots that may result in an embolism. Using the best Anesthesiologist, I awoke calmly and was coherent without a headache or being nauseous, (I heard of cases where the patient jerks awake or thrashes around as they awake). Dr. White uses multiple drains to ensure proper draining from all sides and to provide back-up should one fail, (others usually used only one). All the extra care he takes to not only prevent infections but minimize the scars width and height. He personally visited the patients at least twice a day and on weekends to walk the patient around the floor when other doctors would have relied on the nurses. I made significantly more follow up visits to his office to monitor my progress. Dr. White has his own garment and techniques to ensure proper shaping and compression, which I came to rely on in my recovery. All this was not only to ensure I had the best sculptured look possible but minimize any risk to my well-being. Dr. White even made a series of videos so that your patients know what to expect after arriving at the hospital. This not only helped put me more at ease but guided me in my recovery. As for the results, it was not even close. My scar was about the width of a papers edge. In comparing with others it was significantly smaller and usually less than one third the size of others. The photos Dr. White took of me were untouched. His results are that good. After only a few weeks, my sides are beginning to have that sculptured look. Even my a valley is beginning to form on my abdomen like a six pack without any exercise on my part, (it is still too early for me). I do not have any dog ears on my scars and my new belly button is perfectly round and cute. By tightening my muscles, I am eating less and it has help lower my blood pressure. The skin on my tummy is very smooth and yes you could bounce a quarter on it. The horizontal scar is well below bikini line. (Worst one I saw was a lady with a huge vertical scar). The old saying, you get what you paid for is especially true for plastic surgery. Trying to save a few dollars when it comes to your health or appearance is simply not worth the risks. After taking all this into account, I know Dr. Steve White is the best. It is not every day that a Plastic Surgeon of his caliber takes on just any client. For this I am both honored and thankful you took me as a patient Oh did I mention his great staff. Not only were they friendly but genuinely helpful toward the patient. Great Surgeon, Great Team, and Great Job!!! More

I never thought I would be a person who would go for a plastic surgery. I am surrounded by doctors between family and friends, includes my own father. These people are all for good health and doing it the right way eat well and exercise. I myself am all about natural way of doing things and do not mess with nature kind of person. I followed that principle and had a trainer for 3 years trying to loose all the belly fat. It did not seem like I was getting close to my goals any time in this life. There was a point I just had this bucket list wish to see my self slim and fit into nice cloths. This triggered for me to peruse to get tummy tuck and lipo. Finding the right doctor was very important to me. I hear stories from some close doctor friends on some doctors and the techniques or methods they use for diagnosis and treatments. I was fortunate to have my husband being Dr White's patient prior to me and had successful results. There was no doubt in my mind to go with Dr. White for what I needed. Some of the techniques he uses in surgery are very innovative that will lead to minimum bleeding and scaring, with good results for the purpose itself. One concern my doctor friends had was the duration of anesthesia. Dr. White chooses the best anesthetist to work on his patients. Me and my husband can stand by this statement. It has been 5 months since I had my surgery and my recovery is excellent so far. The personal care I was given at the hospital by Dr White was amazing. I do not understand where he gets this energy that he would come to make his rounds and walk with me to see how I was doing. After surgery he is particular you get up and walk around, and I had few walks with Dr. White himself. I was under anesthesia for about 10 hours. I had low oxygen levels in my lungs after surgery, so he had to ordered a CT scan for lungs. The point here is he is very particular on how to handle the patient after surgery. So instead of just putting the order, he made sure he was present in the radiology room with me as I was moved onto the scanning table. That was the time I had further confirmation, he is just not a plastic surgeon but a surgeon who is very detail oriented and precise from before to after surgery. Even the nurses and caregivers care for you in a specific way if you are Dr. White's patient. For best results follow all the little things Dr. White and his staff tell you, it does make a difference in the results. I like the position of the scars from tummy tuck and the way they have healed so far. As for the lipo the results look great the skin looks smooth and uniform. All this is truly the result of the long hours Dr. White take to do the procedure in very precise way with innovative techniques. If my daughter becomes a doctor I would like to get her trained by a doctor like Dr. White. I continue to eat healthy and exercise. I am more than before encouraged to lead a healthy life style and conscious about taking care of my health and soul. More

Amazing Tummy Tuck - I wanted a tummy tuck for 12 years. I went to several different plastic surgeons. I actually saw an ad for Dr. White in American Way magazine on a flight and was really impressed. I set up a consultation with him. My husband and I met with Dr. White and discussed the surgery. He is extremely detailed and explained every aspect of the surgery to us. We felt like he was enabling us to make the most informed decision! He performed my tummy tuck 16 weeks ago. My results are nothing short of amazing! The amount of after care he gives his patients is unmatched. He even came to the hospital the morning after surgery, because he wants to be the one to teach you how to get out of bed correctly. He promised me the recovery would get better at the 24 hour mark and it did :) My incision is so low... it can be covered by a string bikini. The best part is I can now proudly wear a bikini if I want. I look awesome in clothes, and I feel like my body looks like it should given all of my working out and running. I completed a half marathon 10 weeks post surgery and another at 14 weeks. So even though the recovery is long, you are able to resume your sports and activities fairly soon. Dr. White is amazing, and I highly recommend him. I will be trusting him with any further surgeries I decide to have. More

Lynn Foster - The obstacle that made me reluctant to have surgery was monetary, Since having the surgery, i'm wondering why I didn't have this done 10 years ago! I had seen advertisements in both D Magazine and Texas Monthly rating him #1 in the nation and in Dallas. I had a tummy tuck or an abdominoploasty Complex Ext. The one thing I liked most about my surgery is that there are no puckers or "dog ears" in the final result. Other benefits of my surgery include an increase in self-esteem, I don't have to shop in the plus size department anymore and I am the new me, thanks to Dr White. I would recomend Dr. White and this procedure because he is so meticulous, and caring about you and the outcome of your surgery.Dr. White is the first surgeon that I've ever had that personally was involved with my care in the hospital, as well as, my aftercare. He is an artist at best. He is my "rock star"!!3 More

Tremendous results! - I underwent an extended abdominoplasty nearly 3 months ago with Dr. White. After researching the internet, visiting another doctor, and interviewing friends with similar procedures I was nervous about chosing the right surgeon. Dr. White's approach to patient care EXCEEDS all expectations. His emphasis on patient education and problem prevention demonstrate his committment to excellent results. I have been so pleased with the results of my procedure!! The cosmetic and physical improvements have been tremendous. Who knew I could ever get my body back...and it be even better than it was before my 4 children! As someone who works in health care, I am proud to find someone so passionate and dedicated to their work. I highly recommend Dr. White! More

Wish I could wrap up all my feelings and experiences with a just a few paragraphs, but since I can??t I will do the best I can. My surgery was an Adonminalplasty and Breast lift. It was one of the most extraordinary experiences of my life. Being a long awaited and a scary journey, Dr. White quickly eased my mind. A friend had recommended him. She basically had the same surgery and is very happy (even after three years) and could not say enough good things about her experiences with Dr. White and staff. After doing some research, I did not feel confident going with a doctor who I knew nothing about. Dr. White went way beyond making me feel like I was of the upmost priority and really cares about me and how I am feeling. I never felt at any point that I was just a patient or a number. That kind of care is reflected all throughout his staff, and can only be possible because of Dr. White??s integrity and pursuit of excellence in his practice. Sitting here (4 months post-op) very happy and content with my body, I am very fortunate to have found Dr. White. Having waited over 20 years to have this done, it is difficult to put in words how I feel. I??m just relieved and happy now that Dr. White fixed my stomach. He exceeded my expectations. Since I knew this surgery would be long and the recovery not easy, it was important for me to have a doctor that I could trust completely through it all. That trust was never compromised at any time. He and staff prepared us for what was going to happen at every step of the process. Never felt confused or afraid to ask questions or rushed in any way, I was comfortable at every one of my visits. Thank you Dr. White and staff, it is a privilege to be your patient. More

I have been wishing for a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) for 5 years. I had 3 pregnancies within 4 years and had gained and lost over 100 lbs. I got down to my goal weight but I simply could not repair the baby damage. My stomach was, to me, unsightly and did not seem proportionate to the rest of my body. After interviewing several doctors, searching the internet, and speaking with friends who had already experienced the procedure I chose Dr. Steven J White. I feel so blessed to have found him and the results are absolutely amazing. I look better than I have in 25 years. My body "matches" and is proportionate!!! Dr. White is a perfectionist and it shows. He is kind, compassionate, confident, and enjoys teaching patients about the procedures he performs. Not every surgeon performs the same surgery although they may call it the same name. The time and care Dr. White and his staff take with you is above and beyond what I could have expected. I cannot thank him enough. His staff is also exceptional and I have nothing but praise for all of them. I show my before and after pictures to friends and family and they are absolutely speechless! It was also much less painful than I had expected. I was off of pain medications within 24 hours (except for Tylenol). I urge you to look at Dr. White's website. You will be blown away by the before and after pictures. Then, you simply must go and meet him. You will be so thankful that you did. :) More

I had been looking into getting a tummy tuck almost immediately after my second son was born. After countless hours looking at photos online, I just couldnt bring myself to trading a little bit of skin for the high, rigid scars that were starring back at me. Fast forward 10 years enter Dr. White. I was not a big person and still wore form-fitting clothes and bikinis; I had become a master at hiding my trouble spots: compression suits, pulling panties up a little higher to cover that little pooch, wore clothes with a little more rouching in the midsection, etc. While I felt good IN clothes, I longed to feel even better OUT of clothes! I have found that when youre not completely comfortable in your own skin, your personal and intimate life may be neglected. The decision to have a tummy tuck by Dr. White was easy, especially since he had already performed mine and my sisters breast augmentation. I was astounded at how low and symmetrical the tummy tuck scars were. I had seen other tummy results by him and was blown away by the contouring in the belly. Once I made up my mind to have the procedure I was ecstatic! I wasnt nervous about the recovery or pain, just concerned that I might have nausea after the anesthesia. The morning of surgery I was met with smiling faces at the hospital from the nursing staff stating how great Dr. White was. Surprisingly enough, the pre-op education that I was given was extremely thorough so I wasnt nervous at all; in fact, I, and my husband, felt well-prepared going in for the procedure. I was also very impressed that I had the opportunity to not only visit at length with Dr. White beforehand, but also with the anesthesiologist (a doctor, not a nurse), the operating room nurse as well as other staff that I may come in contact with during my surgery. To see their faces before I was put under was a relief in itself. Awaking with blurry eyes, I remember wondering if they had to stop my surgery because I literally felt NO PAIN, but more importantly there was NO NAUSEA!! As a blue, blurry mass approached, I quickly acknowledged that it was Dr. White. He announced that the surgery went great & that he was able to get above my belly button and remove a hideous tattoo I had branded upon my skin years earlier. YES!! I spent 2 grateful nights in the hospital and was discharged on a Thursday evening. I was anxious about returning home to my children and routine. Upon arriving home, the first thing I did was wash my hair over the kitchen sink! I spent the next day at home alone, bored to tears, wandering the house. By Saturday, I was itching to get out and into the world of the living! Pain wasnt even an issue! I took Tylenol for a few days following surgery (I was off pain pills completely by the time I was discharged). My biggest complaint was that I was bored! I got caught up on ancestry.com- thats another story! By day 7 I was back at work! Sure I was slower than usual, but I felt fine. For me, the second week was a little more emotionally difficult than the first week. By this time, my kids and husband were ready to continue their routines and while I was feeling a ton better, my body kept reminding me that I just had surgery! I think most of it was that I felt guilty for going through the surgery, thus leaving my family to fend for themselves looking back, they were completely fine and stated they enjoyed ordering out every night! Thats a moms guilt for ya! We are always putting others before ourselves. It has now approaching 2 years since my tummy tuck and I couldnt be more thrilled! It has taken me a long time to write a review because Ive been out enjoying my new confidence at the lake and other activities with my family activities that I would have otherwise avoided. There is not a day that goes by that I dont stop and admire my new stomach. I finally have my curves back! I have women ask me how much I work out and I smile and relay to them that I dont its Dr. White! People are always curious what the scar looks like; I gleefully show them the almost nonexistent scar that hides beneath my low-rise bikini bottoms! My husband is equally as proud to tell the tale of the tummy tuck as I am! Looking back, Im so thankful that I chose Dr. White. His poise and dedication to each patient is evident upon first contact at the consultation and continues throughout the recovery. If you are looking for a cheap surgery this isnt the place, but remember, you get what you pay for! I would gladly pay double for the results I see in the mirror every day! More

I have been a RN for 24 years and I am very particular about who I choose to operate on me. Once I had decided to have my abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), I drew up my own question sheet and researched multiple cosmetic surgeons. I was flying home and while perusing the American Way magazine, I saw Dr. White?s information as the best plastic surgeon?, so I had to call to find out more information. My first phone call lasted approximately 10-20 minutes with Penny and she pretty much explained the entire procedure. She answered questions that I had and provided information that I had not even thought about. She also explained Dr. White?s philosophies regarding the procedure, pre- op care, and post- op care. When I got off the phone, I was 98% sure that I was going with Dr. White. I scheduled my consultation within the same week. My consult with Dr White was very informative and long (approx 2 hours). Upon leaving my consult, I was 100% sure that I had found my cosmetic surgeon. I had 2 previous liposuction procedures that I was not content with and I wanted a better look to my abdomen. I knew that I wanted to have my tummy tuck, so my biggest obstacle was making sure that I was choosing the right person for the best outcome. Dr. White showed me multiple pictures of his work and they all looked great. I loved his philosophy of thinking of all things that could go wrong and doing the things necessary to prevent them. Dr White performed my tummy tuck approx 4 months ago and I am feeling fabulous. I was inpatient for a couple of nights and my care was great. Through the whole post op process, I experience minimal pain. I had on pain pill through the whole process and I had no complications because Dr. White had a pre-op and post-op routine in place and it works. My results are awesome. I love the flat tummy! I can now wear clothes that accent my waist and not worry about the rolls around my middle. I had such a great experience with Dr. White, that I consider him to be my personal plastic surgeon. I plan on going back for another step to my mommy makeover and I would not consider anyone else. I highly recommend Dr. White for any cosmetic procedures. Dr. White and the ladies in his office are AWESOME!!! They are very knowledgeable and very helpful. I would not go to anyone else for my cosmetic procedures. More

Though I rarely write reviews, it is on my heart to share my story with the life-changing experience that I've received from an amazing person - Dr. White. I wanted a tummy tuck for many years so that I could be comfortable again in my own skin. After having three boys in my twenties, I'd spent the last thirty years wearing one piece swimsuits and loose clothes that would hide my waist. The reason that I waited so long to have a tummy tuck is due to being terrified. I personally saw my daughter-in-law and sister-in-law get a tummy tuck from "well respected" plastic surgeons and they both had horrible experiences. Not only did they have big scars and enormous pain, but they both had to go back to get the "rabbit ears" removed. This made me very skeptical to move forward. As I approached 60, I knew that if I was going to have a tummy tuck, then I should do it before it was too late. I started doing research and came across Dr. White and read the countless reviews of people singing Dr. White's praises. I was very impressed with his reputation and hopeful to move forward. Though I was fearful to even pick up the phone and schedule an appointment, my nerves were immediately calm when I talked to Jasmine for the first time. I had my first appointment the following week and Dr. White spent two hours answering all of my questions while explaining everything very clearly. After the first visit, my nerves were extinguished and I knew in my heart that everything was going to be fine. The long awaited day arrived and my husband and I sat in the Pre-Op room as Dr. White drew on my stomach like an artist. My husband and I watched with amazement! I had never viewed a plastic surgeon as an artist, but that is exactly what Dr. White is to me. The surgery went as exactly as Dr. White had described in the first consultation. Once in recovery, he personally gave specific instructions to the nurses that would be looking after me. The nurses were amazing and knew exactly how to take care of me. Dr. White checked on me a few times a day and would even walk with me down the hospital hallways. After a couple days, I was able to go home without having to take a single pain pill. Simply amazing! It's been almost a year and my outlook on life has totally changed! For the first time in my life, I love my body and I have confidence in myself! I'm 60 years old, but I feel like I have a new lease on life. I'm able to wear younger looking clothes without feeling insecure or self-conscious. I love Dr. White! I'm also so thankful for his amazing staff: Jasmine, Penny and Kimberly (just to name a few). There isn't a value that can be put on someone who changes your life, so the only thing I know to do is to share my story so that others can benefit from Dr. White, the artist and the surgeon. More

I am writing this review in hopes that others would have the privilege to have the best doctor in the world make your body into a master piece. I had gastric bypass 2.5 years ago and needless to say after losing 110lbs my body was just deflected. I thought after losing all this weight I would feel fabulous but I didn't. I actually felt worse. So began my hunt for a plastic surgeon to help me regain my confidence. My search went through 10 plus surgeons until I found Dr. White I normally wouldn't have paid for a consultation but I had read so many positive reviews and set through so many dreaded consultations I thought what the heck lets give it a try. So I called and scheduled my appointment. I walked into the office it was so different, then the moment came when Dr. White walked into the room and I have to say all of my fears and worries just disappeared. He spent over two hours talking with me and my husband answering all of our questions he wasn't like the rest he genuinely cared about me and hearing all of my needs, wants, and desires. So the time came when we talked about cost YES the dreaded part. I will say this he is not cheap by any means but the ole saying is so very true "you get what you pay for". And believe me he is worth every penny he charges! So now your thinking how would I know this? Well I also had several Weightloss friends that were having tummy tucks at the same time as I was so we walked this journey together and my journey compared to theirs was worth the money I paid extra for. My poor girlfriends that had their surgery is now having to come see Dr. White to fix all the horrible work their surgeons did. Dr. White spent 10 hours on my body yes 10 hours he took his time he made me perfect and to think I never even needed 1 pain pill and not even 1 bruise was caused on my body. Dr. White has completely changed my life he truely cares about people and takes pride in his work. I can not begin to thank him enough for the new me! More

I had contaplated on selective surgery for a while, finding the correct Dr and facility is hard work. I had seen one other doctor but there was nothing to think about after meeting with Dr White. I do not regret having my surgery, I love my results. I chose Dr White because he was very thorough in explaining everything in detail. Every question was answered every concern was put to ease. I had extended abdominoplasty, after my children my abdomen was never going to be the same. I am loving my results, I am ecstatic that my clothes look and feel great. Dr White and his staff exceeded in patient care. My post op went great he and his staff always make me feel comfortable. Every detail was explained before my surgery to the what will happen and what could happen. In my opinion Dr White and staff went above and beyond. I love the fact that our initial appointment was a coupler hours long. I never felt rushed, never felt as if this was just money coming in. I felt like he was there for me. I love the fact that he is a perfectionist and does not cut corners I am loving my body more and more. More

I went to see Dr White for an abdominoplasty 8 years after an augmentation. I knew from the beginning what to expect because he took his time explaining. He is exceptionally thorough and patient as his staff. The day of surgery, he completely put my mind at ease and walked me through each step. After surgery he stayed with me in recovery for hours. Once i saw the results, I couldn't be happier. I look and feel better than I have in years. The work is exceptional and scarring minimal considering. More

I had used Dr White in 2008 for another procedure so when I started talking about a tummy tuck, it was a no brainer. I'd had two c sections and felt very self conscious about the constant bulge I had. I had seen other friends go through a tummy tuck and knew Dr White would be my only choice. His attention to detail cannot be met by another surgeon. He is exceptionally thorough and patient. His staff answered my thousand questions as did he. I never worried about the pain and recovery post surgery because he explained everything so well. His expectations are doctor's orders so choosing whether to follow them is not an option. Thankfully by doing so, I didn't have any horror stories or problems other people describe. I can honestly say I would have the surgery again. I didn't expect to lose as much weight as I did; I was hoping for 10 lbs. In the end I lost more than that plus 2 dress sizes and 2 shirt sizes. I contemplated doing a breast lift as well but after losing so much weight, I didn't feel it was necessary; at least not anytime soon. For the first time in my life, I have curves because of Dr White. I look and feel better than I ever have. More

I'm 5 weeks post op of having a tummy tuck performed by Dr. White and could not be more pleased with my results! I have been debating on whether to have a tummy tuck or not due to a few concerns such as the scar and the belly button (never seems to look normal after having a tummy tuck) but the moment I went in for a consultation all of my concerns were put to rest. Dr. White spent a great deal of time going into detail about the procedure and what I should expect without over promising. After my consultation, I just had an overwhelming feeling that Dr. White was the right doctor to perform my surgery! Clearly my intuition was right because the results are incredible and I'm not even done healing! My scar is extremely thin and very low and my belly button looks better than it did before (no alien belly button.. YAY)! Dr. White pays great attention to every detail and is a perfectionist to the extreme, which is what you want from a plastic surgeon. Thank you Dr. White! More

I'm a dentist (though now a pastor) and my wife was looking for an exceptional surgeon to do a mommy makeover after having 2 kids. You're probably reading this because you're doing research, so I'd like to offer the reasons why we choose Dr. White to help you make your decision. The short version is YES WE ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND DR. WHITE, WOULD CHOOSE HIM AGAIN, and THE PROCEDURE (TUMMY TUCK) HAS MADE A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE IN QUALITY OF LIFE FOR BOTH OF US. Please feel free to continue reading for the long version. Besides many other questions, there were 3 things we needed to know before we decided to go with Dr. White: 1) How satisfied are patients after their surgeries? 2) What makes Dr. White different from other surgeons? 3) How does his staff feel about him? 1) How satisfied are patients after their surgeries? You can read the numerous reviews online about Dr. White to see how satisfied his patients are afterwards. My wife and I are both very satisfied with the results as well as the care provided by Dr. White AND his staff. His staff is great. They deserve bonuses. We have no regrets or concerns about the procedure at this point. 2) What makes Dr. White different from other surgeons? To me, this is a very important question. But I will not provide this answer for you. Instead, you need to ask Dr. White the following question yourself: "Why do you think other surgeons don't use the same techniques as you to provide better results for their patients?" Being in the health profession myself, I found his answer to be true and accurate, and at the same time was able to understand his personal level of commitment to the pursuit of perfection for his patients and his willingness to be his absolute best. 3) How does his staff feel about him? I really wanted to know how Dr. White's staff feels about him because it tells me a lot about who he is as a person. Is he just a great surgeon but a complete jerk? His staff describes their office as a "family" and several of them have had procedures done by Dr. White and/or plan to in the future. They love Dr. White and speak highly of him as both a surgeon and as a boss. This should tell you A LOT about his skill, integrity, and caring nature. Is cosmetic surgery right for you? Could be yes, could be no. I can't answer that for you because there are so many things to consider and I'm not trying to answer that here. One of Dr. White's mantras is "Do the right thing at the right time for the right reason." Those are wise words. But if you are asking, "Is Dr. White the right surgeon for me?" There's no question.

A decision of a lifetime that will change your life. - Let’s agree that you want a tummy tuck. What results are you expecting? Is Dr. White the surgeon for you? What sets Dr. White apart from other options available to you? Before making a decision, you need to be clear on your objectives and your expected key results. From there, you can measure each surgeon’s process against your criteria.For me, I had long wanted a tummy tuck due to having had multiple children that left me with excess skin that no amount of dieting or exercise was able to counter. Add to that a 100-lb. weight loss in the last year and I was a prime candidate for abdominoplasty.My objectives were (1) to attain a flat stomach and (2) to no longer have to hide the excess skin by using shapewear. The key results would be confidence in exposing my midriff, being able to wear form-fitting clothing with no bulges, and showing off a waist that I used to have in my twenties.How to obtain my OKRs (objectives and key results)? I needed a partner, a surgeon with whom to connect surgical, artistic, and personal objectives to measurable results, ensuring that we moved together in the right direction.I became familiar with Dr. White years ago, when my 26-year-old son was in grade school and broke his nose during a basketball game. He was an aggressive defender! At the hospital, the attending physician was going to send us home with no treatment. Dr. White asked to take a look at our son’s nose, declared it broken, and recommended immediate surgery. We followed his advice. Our son’s nose is perfectly straight between adorable dimples that get him much attention. Suffice it to say, I have never forgotten the extra care that Dr. White took to improve my son’s outcome.When I told my husband of 30 years that I was considering a tummy tuck and that I wanted Dr. White to be my surgeon, he was totally supportive based on our past experience with Dr. White. I am the researcher in the family and sent my husband to Dr. White’s website to expose him to the reality of what was to come. Further, I shared with him stories from other friends of mine that had abdominoplasty. Their stories always came up short when comparing the process and procedures described by Dr. White and his expert staff. Yes, Dr. White’s services carry a heavier price tag. This type of procedure is too critical to count pennies. The results justify the expense.Let’s get back to OKRs.? Obtained flat stomach? No longer have to hide the excess skin by using shapewear? Reduced saddle bag effect on outer hips? Received partial hip/butt lift? Hip bones are now protruding? Am able to wear form-fitting clothes without bulges? Have a defined waist with hour glass shape? Where did my hips go? I thought this was only going to improve my abdomen!? I can wear anything!? Compliments galore (sorry, Dr. White, only my husband knows the truth)You might notice that my list of objectives and results exceed my expectations. That is what Dr. White accomplished for me. We are a team. It comes with hard work from both of us. I have no doubt that my results exceed those I would have achieved with a different partner. I know my satisfaction is through the roof! Is this really me?!?Select Dr. White and his team at USA Plastic Surgery for your surgery. It is a decision of a lifetime that will change your life. More

If your looking for the BEST, look no further!!! - From my very first meeting I knew Dr. White was the Surgeon for me!After losing 30 lbs in 2015 I had A LOT of loose skin. Although I was happy about my weight loss I was completely miserable within my own skin. I was so nervous about what doctor to choose and had so many questions. At my consultation all those questions were answered and all fears were put to ease. Dr.White performed a Breast Aug and Tummy Tuck on me in Jan 2016 and Lipo in Feb 2017. I could not be happier with my results!!! He has truly changed my life. He is an artist, perfectionist, wonderful person and a truly gifted surgeon. More

After having my tummy tuck done by Dr. White in September 2016 I was excited about my results but there was some other areas that needed some shape to bring out the curves of my body to get it ready for bathing suit season. I had Such a wonderful experience with Dr. White and his office staff that there was never a question that he would be the one to complete the master piece he started. Dr. White always makes sure you are knowledgeable about you procedure and always preps your body to under go surgery. He believes in paying attention to detail and everyone's body is different so he specializes your treatment to you and your body. He truly cares about you and your results he takes the time to get to know you. You are not just another number. I will tell you this Dr. White is not going to be the cheapest by any means but you know the old saying you get what you pay for it is true. I will gladly pay double in order to get Dr. White because I know #1 I am safe and #2 my results are going to be Amazing. Dr. Whites #1 Fan Christie S Luhring More

Wonderful doctor, wonderful results! I was very hesitant to get any plastic surgery for two big reasons: 1) any surgery that is optional should be avoided - why take the risk, 2) it seemed kind of fake. But after abdominal surgery for medical reasons and then a c-section delivery, I really wanted to investigate getting a tummy tuck. After both those surgeries, things just didn't get back together the same and no amount of exercise was doing the trick. My husband was very supportive and wanted me to have the very best. Dr. White has an outstanding reputation. We went to his website and viewed before/after photos, and read all the patient testimonials, before we visited with Dr. White. Dr. White was very supportive, answered all my questions and then some, but most of all he listened to what I wanted, he did not tell me what I needed but offered what he could do to provide me with the desired results. I ended up scheduling both breast augmentation followed one month later by a tummy tuck (Mommy makeover). I had my surgery at the Texas Institute for Surgery (vs. Presbyterian) - definitely do it there. Dr. White takes every precaution under the sun, the staff is already incredible but he trains them just the way he wants and he has posted his personal rules, protocols and notes all over the hospital room. The staff there is absolutely fabulous. They are at your beck and call and are so knowledgeable and caring and genuinely supportive. The breast augmentation was a d More

The WOW Factor! After childbirth and nursing two children, my weight and body shape fluctuated for 15 years. At the age of 45, I finally lost and maintained a 60 pound loss. However, when I looked in the mirror, I did not like what I saw; flabby tummy, stretch marks, loose skin, and flat breasts that I poured into a bra. No amount of excercise could get rid of my mommy muffin top and my saggy breasts. I was in constant pain from the pressure of loose skin in my mid section, back pain, sores and indentions from under-wire bras. I was tired of wearing spanx and yummy tummy tanks to get rid of the bulges. I was over-due for a mommy makeover! Initially, I only wanted a breast lift. I have God-given, beautiful breasts, and felt I had enough breast mass to not need implants. But to get the best results for the breast enhancement, I needed an extensive tummy tuck. I have NEVER had surgery, and I was intimidated by the whole idea of elective procedures and my pain threshold. I interviewed several highly recommended DFW surgeons, but was turned off by those doctors that encourage an unnecessary augmentation, performed both surgeries, in one day, in their office instead of a hospital. The minute I walked into Dr. White's office, I felt at ease. His office staff were gentle, encouraging and respectful. Dr. White went about explaining his recommendations and techniques with great attention to details. He addressed my concerns with the breast size and shape, contouring my tummy and abdominal muscles to make the breasts look bigger. He understood I wanted the most natural results that were appropriate for my body size and age. He insisted doing the procedures separately, to achieve the best recovery and results, both performed in a hospital setting. He was genuinely excited about how he could help me. And I made the right decision! He did the tummy tuck first, and I was AMAZED at the results; no dog ears on the sides, LOW incision, tight abs, beautifully hooded belly button, and no more stretch marks on my tummy. Because of his perfecting nature, he gave me an added bonus, taking the incision around the hip, lifting the buttock and hip. I now can rock a pair of low rise, skinny jeans! But the breast lift/reduction was the WOW factor. When he unwrapped me in his office, Dr. White did a little Snoopy dance! The results were stunning. The breasts were full, high and symmetrical. He magically removed the loose skin in the axilla area and moved my nipple up 5 inches. The surgery was virtually PAINLESS, with no sensitivity loss. After weight loss and surgeries, I went from a size 18 to size 6/8. My body looks like it did in my college days! Thank you, Dr. White, for holding my hubby's hand during this process. I am grateful you made me quit smoking, adding years to my life. You checked on me morning and night during my hospital stays. And I appreciate your excitement for what you do, and your obsession over the details. Hats off to your highly trained staff and nurses, who encouraged and answered my silly and personal questions! I look forward to the final touches with liposuction. Sic 'em BEARS! More

Dr. White's motto is "YOU, only BETTER!!" And he's right! I've had a tummy tuck with lipo and breast augmentation. After both procedures I felt so comfortable in my body, I wished I had done it sooner! I recently had nose surgery... But this time it was a necessity. This time, I would truly look different on the outside for everyone to see. The only Dr. I trust is Dr.White. I was used to my thin, crooked nose! I didn't want to change it. However, my nose was collapsing and breathing became more difficult. Dr. White knew the right words to soothe me. How many doctors do you know that have such a caring and professional demeanor? He assured me that it would be ME, only better!! Recovery was a snap! My own brother forgot I had surgery until I reminded him. And do you know what he said?? "It's awesome, it's YOU only BETTER!" I consider Dr. White part of my family and I am forever grateful!!!! More

I?m four weeks post-op from a tummy tuck and the feeling I get when I look into the mirror can?t adequately be described with words?but I?ll try. Eight years ago, I lost my husband in an accident while seven months pregnant. After I had my son, I dealt with my grief by overeating, and before I knew it, I was 100 pounds overweight. Once I was able to regain my focus and commitment to bettering myself; I lost the weight, found love again, married, and had another child. Fast-forward to the present, and the weight loss coupled with the effects of two pregnancies left a notable impression on my mid-section. With lots of extra skin and a tummy? that wasn?t going away on its own, I started researching tummy tucks. I met with several doctors and felt they could do a good job, but something still didn?t feel 'right'. Once I met Dr. White, not only did it feel 'right' to have him perform my surgery, it felt as if he had been placed in my life for a reason. At my initial consultation, he spent over an hour with me answering questions, squelching concerns and describing at great length exactly what I could expect with the operation. He never over-promised, but I knew after our conversation that he was the right doctor for me and I felt very confident that I would get fantastic results. This isn?t the same procedure you get with other doctors. He took painstaking, meticulous steps to ensure the outcome was as flawless as humanly possible. Dr. White has a gift; he weaves artistry and technical precision to create results that I could never have dreamed possible. Dr. White transformed my body in a miraculous way. Now the rolls of skin and fat that I?d tried to hide for years have been replaced with a flat, taut, sculpted stomach. And the results carried through to my hips, upper thighs and butt. I can already wear jeans two sizes smaller than before the surgery and the swelling hasn?t completely subsided. He?s an artist. And I trust him implicitly. As a matter of fact, I?ve scheduled my second procedure with him a breast lift! With Dr. White?s help, I feel like I?m in the process of taking the last steps in resurrecting a life that was in shambles not too terribly long ago. The package doesn?t dictate what?s inside, but the image I now project to the world is much more in line with the way I feel on the inside. And I have Dr. White to thank for this. I?d recommend Dr. White to anyone! As a matter of fact, I?ve already recommended him to several colleagues! More

Well, where should I begin? I have so much to say! I looked fine before my two plastic surgeries, however, now I look totally awesome! I could never thank you enough, Dr. White. It has been 3 months and 12 days since my last surgery and I have lost 3 inches in my waist and 1 1/2 inches in each thigh and my stomach is completely flat! Last month I went to Colorado to see my oldest brother and his family. He couldn't believe it when he saw me. He went on and on about my appearance. He is a sports medicine physician and a perfectionist just like you Dr. White. He told me I looked perfect! He said my stomach looked like I was a 15 year old teenager. Wow! That's great considering I'm 36 years old. When my fiancee and I were in Las Vegas, we went with another couple to see 'Showgirls' (topless show) at the Rio. About 5 minutes into the show, my fiancee leaned over to me and said, I'm going to play blackjack, I can see big gorgeous breasts anytime --- I'm out of here. I could go on and on about my stories, however I believe my point has gotten across. I didn't get both of my surgeries because I had low self-esteem and didn't like my body. I got the surgery to make myself look better than I already looked. I could not be more pleased with the outcome. You are a genuine craftsman in every respect. Thank you Dr. White. From the first time I met you, I felt so comfortable. You asked me about me and my family and you actually talked to me, unlike most doctors. These surgeries are very intimate and personal and you have the perfect demeanor. I wouldn't have done all these procedures with anyone else. I cannot express enough how meticulous and caring of a doctor I feel you are. You did a magnificent job of sculpting my body. I have nothing but praise for your outstanding work. In my opinion, you are the very best! More

Dr. White made me feel very comfortable and confident from my first appointment. He is not only very professional, but also very personable. He was very direct and open about what I should expect before and after the procedure. I appreciate the fact that he devotes so much time to each individual patient. I am ecstatic with my results and what Dr. White has done to change my life! I went shopping today and after only 5 weeks, I am into a size 4... from the size 8 that I was wearing the day of my surgery! Every time I look into the mirror I say a special thank you to the man that has given me the hourglass figure that I have always dreamed of --- but never thought possible. There isn't enough paper or words to let this man know what he has done for me. I look better at 50 than I did at 25 and believe me, Dr. White, I am strutting my stuff ! I love it, thank you! More

Dr. White is the only person I would use — his skills are unparalleled. He truly cares about delivering the best outcome and making his patients' comfort and care the number one priority. At age 42, for the first time in my life I went braless in a strapless top to a party. By the end of the evening, my husband was grinning from ear to ear because he was getting all the compliments about his fine date! I was throwing away belts until my mother-in-law told me where I could have them shortened. They had to take 4 inches from them to get them to fit! A girlfriend had to insist I try on flat-front pants (instead of the pleated ones I've worn for years) and you guessed it — it's all I wear now. What a thrill it is! Honestly, I did not look this good when I was sixteen. A year later, I don't remember any other body except this svelte one I've got now — but what I do remember is his care and concern, and complete professionalism. Dr. White will be my doctor for years to come! More

I have battled a weight problem for most of my life. I had gastric bypass surgery and then lost 100 pounds, leaving me feeling better than ever, but with excess skin around the belly and with droopy breasts. I had known Dr. White at my heaviest, and I knew I only wanted him to do my tummy tuck and breast lift long before I ever had it done. As an ER physician, I often called Dr. White in to fix a laceration of the face or a badly damaged hand. He always gave his patients extra time and attention and I watched as he took added steps I didn't see other doctors do to insure the best results. I know a lot of plastic surgeons, but knew I wanted the expertise of Dr. White for my surgery. He is a man of details and he believes in doing the job right --- the first time. He and his staff always made me feel comfortable and never rushed. Sometimes doctors have a hard time letting someone else be in charge, but I had complete confidence in Dr. White. I did these procedures to feel better about myself and it has changed my life. I am now engaged to be married and am thrilled with my results! I know Dr. White has changed my life and I am grateful to him and his staff. Thanks again Dr. White! More

Dr. White, I just want to thank you for making me feel 'complete.' You did an excellent job on my Breast Implants, Tummy Tuck, and Liposuction. I am so happy with the results. When I look in the mirror, I cannot believe that it's me, especially my breasts ... they are so beautiful ... I can't stop looking at them. I love them! I definitely have heads turning now! Dr. White you are a perfectionist and you care about your patients. You made me feel comfortable, like I was your only patient. Not only are you a perfectionist, but you also have a great personality, and you are friendly, outgoing, smart, and witty. If it wasn't for Dr. Frye referring me to you Dr. White, no telling what damage another surgeon would have done to my body. I hear lots of horrid stories from other people on how their surgery went wrong. I am so lucky to have found you! More

Before coming to see Dr. White, my mom and I went to see about 8 other doctors. After walking in to Dr White's office, we just knew he was the best! His office was beautiful and very clean. Dr. White really seemed interested in everything I had to say. He was so professional and kind and made us both very comfortable. We could tell that Dr. White loved his job and really cared about making us happy with the results. He spent so much time making sure everything was perfect --- before, during and after surgery. He called me several times at home after surgery to check on me. I was so happy with my breast augmentation. I'm really glad I chose Dr. White. I think he did a fabulous job! More

I am writing to thank you. I recently underwent an abdominoplasty, breast lift, and revision liposuction. I was very cautious in choosing my cosmetic surgeon. Several years prior to my recent procedures, I had liposuction by another cosmetic surgeon. Being a nurse myself, I thought I had done well by choosing a board certified doctor. This was not the case. My results were less than satisfactory --- to say the least. Although a physician may be proficient enough in their technical skills to receive board certification, the artistry which cosmetic surgery requires cannot be taught. I believe that Dr. White has the rare combination of these two. He was not only able to correct the previous defects, but did an excellent job on the procedures which we had originally discussed. Dr White's attention to detail definitely shows in his work --- both in the operating room and in his bedside manner. I have been thrilled with my work and have sent several friends to see him. I'm sure I will continue to enjoy my new body as well as continue to send my friends your way. Just a note to thank you and congratulate you on a job well done! More

After my last 2 surgeries – first one in September 2007 – Upper Blepharoplasty and Brow Lift, and the second one in January 2008 – Face Lift and Lower Blepharoplasty, I have a much more positive self-image. The surgeries have boosted my self-confidence as well as making me feel younger. I don't even think of myself as being the age I actually am. With both these recent facial surgeries as well as the Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) that was done 3 years ago, I am also inspired to take better care of myself. This includes watching my diet as well as exercise – my goal is to enjoy the maximum benefit of these surgeries. I wouldn't have trusted any other plastic surgeon to do these surgeries – I have full confidence in you, Dr. White, and your skills/expertise. You pay close attention to detail to have the best outcomes and prevent any complications. You show concern for all your patients and treat them as individuals. Your talent and skills are awesome! I also want to add that I am still thrilled with the outcome from the nose surgeries following my facial injuries several years ago. I'm still in awe not only of the surgical outcome but of your excellent repair of the nose and lip lacerations --- the scars are barely visible. Thank you again, Dr. White, for all you have done for me --- I feel blessed that I found you as a surgeon! PS - Your staff is great too. They are always very friendly and pleasant. More

I can't begin to thank you for the great care you had given me for my Breast Lift and Tummy Tuck. I knew that you are very detailed and meticulous in everything that you do, but you have exceeded my expectations in every way! You made me feel very comfortable from my first appointment, and you were very professional and personable going over every detail on what to expect before and after surgery. I really appreciate that you devote so much time to each and every patient. I had not realized that not all plastic surgeons were this personable and professional as you had been with me until I accompanied a friend of mine who had a Tummy Tuck done by one of the surgeons in Austin. This was the first appointment in 3 months since her surgery, and he barely had time to answer some of her questions. We could tell that he couldn't wait to leave the room to go on to the next appointment. Then, I realized how fortunate I had been to have you as my surgeon!!! I am very happy with the results of my surgery and will trust my life in your hands any time. Thank you again for all you had done for me. I wish there were more or better words to express my gratitude for the excellent care you provide. More

Excellent results! This is the second time Dr. White has worked with me. The first time was abdominoplasty six years ago (I was greatly obese as a young adult) and the results were remarkable. This time I had liposuction, to rid myself of love-handles and back fat. I work-out six days a week and no matter how thin I got or how hard I pushed myself, these problem areas would not get better. The work done by Dr. White didn't truly alter my weight, but, it made my clothes fit a lot better and greatly improved my appearance. I recommend Dr. White without hesitation, and, I recommend elective surgery like mine for those who want to look and feel better! More

My tummy tuck was my second surgery with Dr. White, who did my breast augmentation 7 years before. Once again, I have been amazed with my results and have always felt like I was in the best possible hands with Dr. White. He and his team made sure I was thoroughly prepared for the tummy tuck process, and he went out of his way to be there for me during my hospital stay and reassure me that I was doing great. Another remarkable part of my experience was the recovery - I was driving again within a week and back at work 10 days later. And, I decided to do it all without any narcotics, which personally I preferred and found do-able. It's been about 4 months post-surgery and I've dropped about 3" inches from my waist and just bought 3 new bikinis to wear on a trip to Mexico (I thought those days were long gone!). Another bonus benefit I hadn't expected is the feeling of "super stomach muscles" - I'm standing taller and running faster than before with less effort - it's given me a very noticeable boost in core strength and energy that I didn't anticipate, which feels great! No doubt it's a big decision to have an elective procedure like this, but I would do it again with Dr. White as my surgeon. In fact, he'll be doing my facelift in a few more years . . . he told me it's "not time yet!". :) More

Best Plastic Surgeon You'll Find! - I have had a prior surgery done by Dr. White at USA Plastic Surgery and was ecstatically happy with the results. I had a tummy tuck done in 2012 after losing over 100 pounds and he removed over 8 pounds of skin for me. To say that made me happy is certainly an understatement, so of course when I thought about another surgery there was no doubt who I would go to for the job. I am told I am OCD and a perfectionist by my friends, so I choose the best to do anything for me regardless of what it is. If you do your research, you’ll find Dr. White listed in that group everywhere you look as one of the top 10 plastic surgeons!The obstacles I had for my surgery (breast lift) were not ones that everyone will encounter. I wanted to get the breast lift done a few years ago and my husband was against it, mainly because he didn’t want to see any scars on my breasts. Even though photos of Dr. White’s work proved minimal and almost non-visible scars, he was still against the surgery saying I was perfect as I was. I settled and decided not to have the surgery…….until years later after my husband was unexpectedly killed in an accident. I had agreed with him on not having the surgery because of his wishes, but with him gone I felt that I should do what was best for me. I wanted to be able to feel good about myself again and when I saw my breasts hanging as low as they did, I had no doubt what I wanted to do. I needed my breasts done for me, and it also made me feel better about moving on romantically because my husband had always said no one would ever touch my breasts again but him. Having the surgery seemed like it changed them to be “my breasts” so I didn’t feel as if I were betraying him as his widow. I warned you that you probably won’t share the same hurdles or obstacles I did in this path. I too was worried about some scarring, but having had prior work done by Dr. White, I was confident in his word that he gave me.After the surgery, I felt good about the results of Dr. White’s work, although I did push the limits a bit and left for a 30-day radio tour on a motorcycle within two weeks of the surgery. As a result, my scarring is a tiny bit more noticeable than it probably would’ve been had I been home and not on the road for 30 days. The thing I like the most about my results is that bathing suit tops now fit better because they aren’t having to try and hold up sagging breasts, that weigh a ton and are nothing but excess skin. I feel better about myself after the surgery because I no longer have the marks in my shoulders where the weight of the former breasts caused the bra straps to dig into my shoulders all day long. The only thing I wish is that we could have incorporated a breast implant/augmentation into the lift, but I do realize why Dr. White does not do that. The purpose is to lift and adding the implant at the same time, would be unnecessary weight to help pull back down during the healing and defeat our original purpose. I love the fact that the ladies in Dr. Whites office are so personable and so amazing every single time I visit, call or ask anything. They are always willing to go out of their way to accommodate me in schedule changes, questions or follow up appointments. They are very knowledgeable and able to quickly answer questions, reassure any doubts and make referrals to someone else who has had the same procedure, to calm your nerves if you are worried about the procedure. It’s like an extended family anytime you deal with Dr. White’s staff!! More

I have had many procedures with Dr. White. NO OTHER SURGEON WILL EVER TOUCH ME. I currently underwent a brow lift w/ lower blepharoplasty (lower eyelids). After a photo shoot I noticed my eyes looked "hidden," if you will. After the brow/blephs, my eyes literally pop! I feel better & cannot wait for another photo shoot so I may highlight my face! It wasn't painful and I was back in the public in about a week. The minimal bruising I had, I was able to cover with make up if I needed to. As always, I will continue to send friends, clients and strangers to Dr. White. Jazmin is a wealth of information. If you have questions, she is your gal! Actually my mother saw me two weeks after the surgery & she kept looking at me, but couldn't figure out what was different. That is what I was going for - subtle. Friends and family tell me I look more awake and happy. More importantly than that, I feel more awake & happy! The bags under my eyes were starting to bother me but now they have packed up & moved on! Whatever you do, do not hesitate to see Dr. White. He will not compromise your health or physical appearance just to get you to operate. If there is a reason NOT to operate, he will find it! Your overall well-being is his highest priority. He is very caring, open & honest. He has the best bedside manner of any physician you will ever meet. The office has my permission to tell about my surgeries, experiences, etc. Should you need someone to speak with, patient-wise, about this surgery, the tummy tuck, liposuction or breast augmentation, let the gals know & they will connect us!
