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 Breast Augmentation and Tummy tuck in 2011 and 2013 by Dr.White. I wanted do face and neck lift for a long time. But I worried about down time. After I talked to Dr. white, I made a decision.It is now six months after the surgery. The result is amazing. Sagging is almost gone. No more loose skin and I feel very good. Down time is minimal, I had four surgeries. Every time was perfect. I high recommend Dr. White. More

The Best! - Being a 62 woman I felt reluctant to get a tummy tuck. However, after discussing with my husband, I did extensive research to find the most reputable surgeon-- after all, this is my body! There are gobs of board certified plastic surgeons to choose from, but just like any profession, some are better than others. Doctor White exceeded all expectations and I (not to mention my husband) couldn't be happier with the results! I now LOVE skinny jeans!! I'm so glad I chose one of the most acclaimed and nationally recognized doctors-- and you will too! More

I had a tummy tuck and I am so pleased with my results and Dr. White. I wish I would have done it sooner. I feel like a new woman. Dr. White is a perfectionist and makes you feel like his only patient. He is very passionate about his work making sure you look the best you can. More

I have been a nurse for over 20 years and have worked with many excellent and poor physicians. I first became aware of Dr. White's talents in 2009 when two fellow nurse friends of mine had tummy tucks. I was amazed at how beautiful both of their bodies looked. They kept a very feminine shape and their results were simply gorgeous. I had several other friends who went with other physicians because they were less expensive and not as structured with post op requirements as Dr. White and I was not impressed at all with their results. Several of my friends who went the cheaper route ended up back in the OR for revisions and to this day are not happy with their results. So, after seeing his results I knew he would be the only one that I would let operate on me. I went for a consult in 2011 and finally had the nerve to have my surgery in 2018. My biggest obstacle was coming up with the funds for an elective procedure. I had a large amount of weight loss and multiple cesarean sections and I really wanted to look like my old self again so finally I decided I was going to do it. I am very active person and always felt uncomfortable in my clothing, bathing suit etc... I wanted this for myself and nobody else.Let me just start by saying Dr. White is like a passionate artist. When he does surgery on you he is very particular about how you care for his artwork and has spent many years perfecting his trade. He demands a level of perfectionism from himself and everyone he works with; nurses, staff and fellow doctors. I don't feel like he considers his work a job at all, it is a passion and he knows that his patients represent his artwork. I listened and followed all advice and orders he gave me and I can't tell you how happy I am with my results.The follow up care has been amazing he never rushes and is the most thorough Doctor I have ever used. He is so proactive and anticipates problems before they become problems thus making his pre-op and post-op care very meticulous as well. My results are amazing I feel truly like a new person and my only regrets are not doing this sooner. I have no regrets or guilt for having my life changing surgery. My confidence in my clothing is off the charts and I cannot sing enough praises for Dr. White and everyone that I came in contact with during this abdominoplasty. More

Review from I.R.  |  Source: Google  |  Jul 13, 2018

So before I say anything, I’ve got to atone for a heinous crime that I committed when we last spoke. In my previous review I raved about how amazing Dr. White and his team is and basically did an Oscar acceptance speech thanking them; however, I forgot about one extremely important group of people that make this whole process possible. Dr. Zipper, Dr. White’s go to anesthesiologist, and his team (Carol and the gang) were nothing short of fantastic. It must have slipped my mind in the last review because I was unconscious for 97.3% of our entire interaction, but I honestly think that’s how you measure the quality of an anesthesiologist…if you aren’t unconscious, they’re definitely doing something wrong. Main idea is that my past statement applies to everyone that Dr. White sends his patients to because he knows that the quality of his work is not only based off of what he does but also the people that he trusts to support him.Now on to the reason I’m here: I know some of you may be saying to yourself, “Why is this guy posting another review? I thought Dr. White already took care of him and I can’t take another long winded review, Netflix shows don’t binge watch themselves after all.” Which is fair…hurtful, but fair. Now if you’re one of the people who truly wants to find out about how getting surgery with Dr. White will impact you, then you’ve come to the right place. Spreading the word about him is so important to me that I created another Gmail account just so I can post a different review about this second surgery. #DedicationWhen I first decided I was going to do something about the extra skin I had from being overweight I knew I would most likely need two procedures done, one for my chest and one for my stomach. Because of this, I decided to reach out to 3 surgeons to see who would fit best with my goals. The first one never even got back to me to schedule an appointment (easy elimination) and the second one looked at my chest and told me that he couldn’t really do anything about it without giving me scars which would “basically be malpractice” because it would be worse than before. Now don’t get me wrong, I definitely appreciated the honesty but that didn’t leave me feeling very confident in…well anything. Then I went to Dr. White and the difference was like comparing apples to Canadian bacon. He walked me through everything and when I mentioned the chest procedure (which is what this review is about if you were wondering), he told me exactly what he was going to do to make it better without hesitation. Not only that, but he had plenty of pictures of successes to show me which gave me all the confidence I needed to make my decision. What I want to stress from this is that I actually encourage you to talk to other doctors about any procedure you’re considering before going to Dr. White because the difference you’ll see will make you appreciate him that much more.Now I’m going to wrap this up because even I’m starting to fall asleep here (I told you Dr. Zipper was good). These two surgeries have changed my life forever, and I will never find the words to express my gratitude to Dr. White and his team for making that possible. I was able to take my shirt off to swim for the first time in over a decade and I’m actually able to see the fruits of my labor in the gym. People have asked me why I did this at such a young age and it’s simply because I lived with crippling insecurities for over 10 years before making the decision to do something about it, and I want to get to the point where all of that is just a faint memory. When it comes to learning how to love yourself and feeling comfortable in the skin you’re in, the journey can be long; however, I know this was the first step towards having a healthier view of myself and in my opinion, sooner was truly the better.

I had an extended tummy tuck performed by Dr. White and I could not be happier with my results. From the very beginning to the very end, I was well taken care of by him and his staff. I’ve never had a dr spend so much time with his patients. He is a perfectionist which is important when it comes to surgery. He came to check on me in the hospital multiple times. He is very down to earth and caring. My recovery was much quicker and smoother than my friend’s who had gone to someone else. More

A year ago, my husband and I decided to start looking into Abdominalplasty surgery after talking about it for a few years. I had two girls via c-section and was left with a lot of extra skin. I’ve never had surgery where I was put under with anesthesia and I was super nervous. We interviewed a few doctors and I always walked out still feeling uneasy about going through with the procedure. When I met Dr White, I instantly knew this was my doctor! Dr White not only got me super excited about my results with the sculpting techniques he does but he put my worries at ease. I went into surgery stress free which made a world of difference for me and my family. The whole experience was better than I expected. No bruising, very little to no pain meds, hardly any pain and my results, are amazing! Better than I ever expected. Within 9 months post op I was down 17 lbs and down two sizes! I LOVE my tummy! I can workout now and see results when before I couldn’t. Another concern of mine was what my belly button would look like. I’m not gonna lie, that part was a little strange. But the final result was perfect! Dr White and his team were amazing! Always there for me and any questions or concerns I had. I would highly recommend him! He truly is a miracle worker! More

Results beyond my wildest dreams! - After having 2 children and losing 80 lbs, I knew a tummy tuck was the only way I could get the tummy of my dreams. From recommendations, I knew Dr. White was the best of the best, but pricey and I didn't know if I should spend the money on myself. However, I scheduled a consult to see what his vision was and I knew I had met my doctor during that consult. Yes, he is friendly and engaging, but... More

“Look at that, you’ve lost 12 pounds since the surgery! Isn’t that wild?!” Dr. White smiled as he gave me the good news. I smiled back and nodded in agreement, it was amazing that the pounds seemed to be coming off without me even trying, but I realized something in that moment. It wasn’t the weight that I lost that meant anything and it wasn’t even the skin that was removed…it was the 12 years of insecurity and embarrassment that I had shed that meant more than the world to me. All the times I would look in the mirror and feel a sense of dread fill me because of what I saw. All the times I would refuse to take my shirt off while swimming (which would confuse everyone because I was “so fit”) because I was too scared of what other people would think. All the times I would panic simply because my shirt got lifted too high which would expose my stomach for just a brief second. I was living my life as a 23 year old with the self-confidence of my 12 year old self. But all that was changed thanks to Dr. White.I could write a book about how confident and safe I felt in trusting Dr. White with my surgery, but I know most people (including myself) have the attention span of a goldfish so I’ll keep it brief. He’s a compassionate and kind hearted man who truly does care about every single patient that walks through his doors. Changing people’s lives through plastic surgery is his passion, and you can tell that just by listening to him talk. He constantly strives to improve his technique in order to make sure the patients get the best results which is something that’s rare to find in any profession these days. He makes sure you’re prepared for every single potential outcome so that there are no surprises and if there’s something that he didn’t talk about, he has enough experience that he can handle it without missing a beat. Going into this whole process, I had my reservations about the surgery itself and also the cost if we’re being honest. All of those went away pretty much instantly after having my initial consultation with him. I couldn’t be happier with the results even if they threw in a free pony with the surgery, and it was worth every penny.Speaking of Penny, both of his front desk workers (Penny and Jazmin) are fantastic people. I think it speaks volumes to the quality of a business if the employees are amazing as well. Dr. White has truly created an experience that leaves you feeling whole and happy every time you leave. I’ve recommended his office to every single person I talk to whether it’s my family, my friends, or the random guy that asks me if I want guac in my bowl at Chipotle. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to thank him enough for what he’s done for me, but I figure this is a good start.P.S. I know that it seems out of place for a guy to get something like a tummy tuck but keep in mind that being confident in yourself and happy with your body isn’t something that’s gender specific…it’s universal. That being said, I do find it strange to say I got a tummy tuck, so I’ve opted in to calling it an “Ab Sculpt”. You can use that too, but I do charge a royalty fee. More

Dr. White is an AMAZING doctor and an incredibly talented surgeon. I had a tummy tuck at the end of June and the results are getting better with each day. The biggest obstacle preventing me from getting plastic surgery had been just not believing that my tummy could be made attractive, but after looking at all the before and after pictures on Dr. White's web site, I believed if anyone could transform me, it was him. And he has! From day one I have had absolutely NO bruising whatsoever!! I've gone from a big belly to bikini ready--something I NEVER thought would happen. The incision is turning into a very thin white line. Dr. White and his entire team have made the entire process so enjoyable. I feel like they're a group of friends I get to visit instead of just going to a doctor for follow ups. The thing I like most about my results is the sculpted look of my stomach. It already looks like I have the beginning of a six pack!! I highly recommend Dr. White to anyone considering plastic surgery. Dr. White is a REAL DOCTOR and consummate professional. He is patient and will explain the entire process to you in a way you can understand. His bedside manner is second to none. You'll be in great hands with him and his whole team. 5 stars!!! More

I was skeptical about getting a tummy tuck because I really didn't think my stomach could ever be made to look attractive. Dr. White set me at ease right away with his fantastic bedside manner and obvious super-knowledge. He let me know I was a great candidate and then he did the impossible (in my mind): he gave me a beautiful, sculpted tummy with super cute belly button! Getting plastic surgery has changed my life. I've always been self conscious about my tummy and now I want to show it off. Dr. White is the consummate professional and his entire team is phenomenal! They've been so great to walk through this journey with me. I can't imagine a more positive experience. I highly recommend Dr. White to anyone considering plastic surgery. He is a REAL DOCTOR that truly cares about each of his patients. He explains each step of the process in a way that is easy to understand and explains all the reasoning behind it. I think the best benefit from my surgery is the added self confidence I have. Not just because my stomach looks better, but because Dr White has helped me in the way I see myself. I strongly recommend Dr. White for ANYONE considering plastic surgery. Take a look at the before/after photos on his web site and see for yourself the caliber of his handiwork. He is amazing! More

Top notch care and results. I received a tummy tuck in 09/2016 due to massive weight loss and the results and care were nothing but amazing. I would recommend Dr. White to anyone looking to get this type of surgery done. Everyone at Dr. Whites office are super nice and helpful. He or his staff came and visited me every day while in the hospital and helped me more than they should have. I honestly do not have anything bad to say about my care or results from Dr. White and his services. I feel this was one of the best choices I have made! More

After setting an appointment with another surgeon, for a tummy tuck and breast explant, I was told I needed to go see Dr. White and talk to him about the procedure. After meeting with him, I knew he was the surgeon for me, especially with his sculpted stomach technique, and I wouldn't work with anyone else. I felt secure and well informed with him. He and the girls in his office were incredible throughout the process and answered all of my questions no matter how small. I was very nervous to have my surgery, but he made me feel at ease, and took great care of me from the consultation through all of the follow-up visits. He even showed my husband how to lift me and take care of me through my recovery. I am now 6 months post - op and I LOVE my results! My stomach is beautifully sculpted, which is something only Dr. White can do with his meticulous artistry and impeccable eye for details. He didn't just make my stomach flat, he made it gorgeous and toned!!! I was very worried about what my scar would look like since a tummy tuck inevitably leaves a large scar. Dr. White took so much time making sure that the line was low and thin, thin, thin! It is getting lighter every day and it is paper thin! My explant went very well and I will be seeing him for a lift in the near future. I would absolutely recommend him for the tummy tuck and explant procedures. I feel so confident and good in my clothes! 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

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

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

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.

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 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 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 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

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

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

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

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

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. 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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

After 5 years of looking at my "kangaroo pouch" which neither diet or excercise would cure, I decided to go to Dr. White after seeing him in Dallas's Top Doctors Magazine. He did an awesome job and make waist looks nicely sculpted. I would certainly recommend him to family and friends! More

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

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. I never had any pain, never had any depression and I am thrilled with the treatment and results I have received thus far. Would I have another procedure by Dr. White? Absolutely! 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.

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

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

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 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.

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

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'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

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 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!

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

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.

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 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

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

I was always envious of women with bigger breasts than mine and had secretly always wanted them. I knew surgery was expensive and from what I had seen on friends and co-workers sometimes the results can look fake and unattractive. I then became friends with a women who had breast implants and hers looked amazing. I had to keep reminding myself everytime I saw her because they looked so perfect and natural. After further discussion with her I decided to schedule an appointment with Dr.White. After meeting him and his staff I knew this was the right decision for me. Dr. White is an amazing surgeon, his attention to detail and perfection is outstanding. His staff is absolutely wonderful. I was anxious about the procedure but I knew I was in good hands with Dr. White. The procedure went beautifully, my pain level was none, no bruising or discomfort of any kind, I was home by 4:00pm the day of the surgery. I was out running errands with my husband the next day. As my breasts have settled and are looking more natural, I love them. I feel so confident and happy about my new breasts, this was one of the best decisions I made for myself. I have family and friends that want breast augmentations, tummy tucks, lipo, I tell all of them Dr.White is the only doctor you need to visit. This has been a wonderful and very easy expereince for me. I am extremely happy with my results. 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

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

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 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 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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Dr. White is AMAZING! I have wanted breast augmentation for 20 years and have always "chickened out" when it came down to actually doing it. My sister in law went to Dr. White 5 years ago to have the procedure done and had nothing but great things to say about him. I scheduled my consultation and knew right away I was going through with it finally. His staff makes you feel so comfortable and they answered every question I had before I even asked! He is very professional yet it feels like I've known him forever. I had my surgery done 6 weeks ago and am very pleased with my results. The little things I was scared of turned out to be nothing at all. The pain wasn't bad, I had it done on a Friday and was back at work Monday. I am considering getting a tummy tuck next and will definitely be using Dr. White. He didn't make me feel like I was just a number, he is genuinely sincere and cares about his work. 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...

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 Journey - Dallas, TX - I am a 33 yo mother of two beautiful girls. I had large babies and a very streched out stomach full of stretch marks. 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. I saw three different doctors in my area and made my choice. 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 9 days and no one could tell that I was so fresh from surgery. 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

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

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

Breast Aug and Tummy Tuck - Big Success! - Dallas, TX - Dr. White was incredibly OCD about his work. I have never seen another doctor, can't imagine another doctor, who has thought through every aspect about his work in this detail. Even with the after care, he rounded on me sometimes twice a day, himself, to make sure that I was healing properly, was in the right position (to avoid pain), and seemed to truly care about the results.

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

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

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
