He was extremely knowledgable and he answered every question I had before I even asked it. He did a fabulous job. Of course, I love the results and wouldn't change a thing. Dr. Lawton is the best. I would considering going back to him if I wanted anything else done. His office staff is just as awesome.

Dr. Lawton has been my go to plastic surgeon for a while now, I've done a couple of procedures with him and my latest one was a Lipo, Yes, I'm not afraid to say it. I first did my nose, and a little after that I did breast augmentation, all have been great, he is a very good professional doctor and his staff is also really nice. If I'm ever in need of a tummy tuck, after kids and everything, I for sure will go to him.

I just wanted to put out there that I have been a patient of Dr. Lawtons for over 10 years now and refer people to him all the time. I started with breast augmentation and went back about 6 years later for a tummy tuck, which, he said I would be back for because I chickened out getting them at the same time because of the scar it leaves. ( I was still pretty young and not 100% sure i wasnt going to have another child) Sure enough, I was back at his door getting one! He said lipo would not work for me as it would not be the result that he or I wanted. I read a previous review and hope that people reading these reviews remember that not everyone is a perfect fit for every doctor. I have ran into plenty of doctors that I dont care for, but that doesnt mean they dont know what they are doing! I have referred probably 20 patients to Lawton and everyone one of them thank me and love the results. They have in turn referred patients to him as well! I've always liked Lawton's 'vision' of the body and after seeing the alterations he does on my friends, can only say great things about his surgical and 'engineering' skills he has to get his patients the end result they are trying to accomplish. In a previous review a person that saw him complained because he wanted to do lipo instead of a tummy tuck that she wanted. If a doctor told me that he would do lipo instead of a tummy tuck, I would be more comfortable with him because he wasnt trying to make more money off of me by doing the tuck! But that's just it, Lawton does what it takes to get the end results that you are trying to acheive, even if he doesnt make as much money off of you. Each doctor knows what he is capable of accomplishing through their training and experience. Check his out! They are pretty impressive! As a patient, your personalities may not mesh or you may not have a laughing great time in the examining room, but I think what matters is the end results which he gets for his clients. After 10 years I still strongly recommend my friends to Lawton for cosmetic procedures and will continue to do so. I'm sorry that someone had a bad initial visit with him but it's great that she found a doctor that she meshed with and is happy with the end result. Afterall, that is what matters!. And for her, remember, tummy tuck pain is like birthing pain, you quickly forget it! 🙂

I received a referral for Dr. Lawton after expressing my nervousness about the whole concept of cosmetic surgery and my desire to have a confidential and personalized experience for my investment. When I walked into the office, I was immediately welcomed by the staff and given instructions on the paperwork to complete. Included in the folder was a biography of Dr. Lawton that summarized his background, experience, education, and highlighted prestigious medical recognitions he has received in his life. This was especially important and one of the things that I noted right from the beginning. My appointment was kept on schedule and again one of the things that I felt was important in this consultative experience. In the consultation, I went through every single one of my concerns, fears, and asked a lot of questions regarding the procedure I had. Dr. Lawton was very kind, listened attentively, and then gave me a portfolio of pictures to review so that I could really allow him to visualize what I had in my mind. He was very professional and was able to show me the differences in some before and after pictures to allow me to see then that it was my option to continue with the services that he could provide. He explained the procedures thoroughly as well as the process leading up to the surgery. He addressed his services in a manner that was helpful for me to understand and then explained his recommendation. He did a visual evaluation and requested that I take the time to think about what option I preferred, I scheduled my surgery for a couple of weeks later for the mastopexy and reduction. The surgery began early as it takes 2- 21/2 hours to complete. I was welcomed by the staff and made comfortable in a pre-op room where they again asked me if I wanted to address any concerns, fears, or questions before the procedure. I had one of the ladies with me the entire time in pre-op that was very helpful and comforting. I was assured during the process that my feelings were validated and completely normal. 🙂 After surgery, my husband was notified immediatly and as I woke up from the anesthesia, I felt very drowsy. I was bound with a compression bandage and my husband was given all of my after care instructions. I was wheeled in a wheelchair to my car by another doctor and taken home by my husband. The next morning I had to return to make sure that I was feeling ok and didn't have any other concerns. This is when the compression bandadges were taken off and I was given instructions on the healing process again. I had 2 drains in and given pain killers that helped me to get through the first week post op. My pain at that point was normal considering I had major surgery. About 7 days later I returned to get the drains and stitches out and was amazed at that point how minimal the pain was and how awesome I felt with the results. The photo that I took to Dr. Lawton as "inspriation" was taken into account and I was given exactly what I had hoped for. I followed his instructions of taking my antibiotics, vitamin regimen and not lifing anything over 5 lbs. The lines that will be scars later were very thin at that point, and you couldn't even tell the nipples had been moved up. After just about 9 days or so, I didn't realize I would see the results that quickly. Now, I am about 1 month post op, drains out, pain gone, scabbing gone, and feeling super sexy again! I am able to wear soft bras now and am so excited about the results. Lastly, if you are in search of a cosmetic surgeon that is ethical, honest, kind, and professional, do yourself a favor and schedule your consult with Dr. Lawton. There are not enough words to say how much I have appreciated this experience and him and his welcoming staff taking the time to make sure that I had everything that I needed throughout the process.

Hello, I am a female woman of age 24 turning 25 this year and I got my breasts augmentation exactly two years ago on May 26th, 2013. I had been interested in getting breast augmentation since I was 18 years old. Within a matter of 3 months I visit with a total of 4 different breast augmentation doctors and when I met Dr. Gary Lawton, I knew right away he was the one I'd go to. Keep in mind that I was and still am a college student who saved up to pay for this procedure therefore, I was as picky as it gets. I wanted a job well done, and today I can certainly say he exceeded my expectations. I have had a wonderful experience with Dr. Gary Lawton, I must admit that meeting him for the first time during my consultation he isn't a very approachable/warm person. However, I soon realized that his experience is what lead him to be so straight forward. He was straight to the point though and answered ALL my questions thoroughly and was extremely knowledgeable. He helped me decide on what size to go with and explained the exact procedure. All of his staff is very friendly and the day of my procedure flashed before my eyes. The nurses who assist him were wonderful and took great care of me. Everyone's pain tolerance is different, for myself, the pain only lasted about 3-4 days. Thereafter, I was back to work within a week. I have had several follow ups with him since my surgery 2 years ago and it has lowered to only seeing him once a year. I can't THANK Dr. Lawton enough for making my breasts absolutely BEAUTIFUL! You know you have a good doctor when people don't even realize your breasts are fake.

I have had two procedures done by Dr. Lawton . 7/10/2006 - a Breast Augmentation , where he along with my husband helped me choose a size that went with my body and looked natural . and today almost 7 yrs later , looks great ! 3/19/2013 - a full Abdominoplasty , I am now 6 wks out and doing well. all went great as Dr. Lawton explained what to expect . I had had two c-sections (lg vertical cut) , so this incision would not be that bad and it wasn't . He did say what would hurt the most was the tightening of the muscles in the upper stomach area . and this was so true . If I were to have any other enhancements done in the future , I will definately go back to Dr. Lawton !!!

I had my breast augmentation done two years ago by Dr. Lawton and I'm very pleased with his work! He took the time to explain every detail of the surgery to me , answered any concerns or questions I had. He also has good bedside manner and is very professional, sincere, and takes pride in his work. I was so satisfied with his work that i referred my own mother and my sister is planning a future surgery with him. I highly recommend him with all his expertise and experience. The office personnel and nursing staff were also pleasant. I was in and out of my appointments and the nurses always let me know if i still had any questions to call the office.

I had a breast augmentation with Dr. Lawton four years ago and I can tell you that I am EXTREMELY pleased with the results. I went in initially for a consult and was nervous about the procedure. Dr. Lawton was extremely professional. Dr. Lawton along with his nurses and staff were very friendly which immediately put my mind at ease. He thoroughly explained the process, took my measurements and we worked together to obtain the goal of finding the perfect size! I have since referred friends, co-workers and family. I wouldn't hesitate to send someone his way because of my own personal experience. I loved that the consultation, surgery and all follow-ups are all done on site at one location rather than having to drive to different centers. The procedure itself was minimally invasive and it was a seamless recovery. A+++ to Dr. Lawton and his staff!

I saw Dr. Lawton in January of this year, after consulting with a couple of surgeons after the holidays, he was my choice the moment we had our first meeting. He told me everything I needed to know regarding my procedure and was very clear answering all of my concerns, what to expect for the post-surgery days and recovery. I am very pleased with the results I had with this procedure, I felt really taken care of. The nurses and staff were always very nice, very professional and very understanding of my nervousness the day of the procedure. I'd say you'd be in very good hands with Dr. Lawton and his team if you ever in need of a plastic surgeon.

Dr. Lawton is an skilled plastic surgeon. I cannot say enough positive about the work he does. It is near miraculous the results I had with my 2 procedures with him. I'm in my 30's and had never had any surgery, more or less plastic surgery. However, I had become very concerned and unhappy with my body after two babies and way to many cheese enchiladas. I decided I'd consider lipo and something to make my breast look like they once did. I had 3 consultations with plastic surgeons that my friends had used, including Dr. Lawton. I opted for Dr. Lawton not because of how nice or friendly he seemed. I decided to put my trust in him to operate on me because he was and is the most knowledgeable and prudent. I am focused on results and so is he. I am SO HAPPY with my results! Lipo--By far and large a game changer in my life. Amazing results. Dr. Lawton is a sculptor of women. He made me my best looking me. Know this though, lipo recovery is painful. Plan on 2 weeks of wowser pain and 2 more of mild pain. After that, life is even more beautiful. Breast lift-I was droopy at best---I wasn't looking to look like a pole dancer, just a perky me. He did a great job and now I am high an tight. Who knew! Thank you, thank you, thank you to Dr. Lawton and his really nice staff. They treated me with respect and kindness.

It has been 10 years since I had my first surgery with Dr Gary Lawton and I am just as happy now as I was then. Dr Lawton is a highly skilled surgeon who practices in his own fully accredited operating room and amongst a very friendly and professional staff. I was very pleased with my results and so comfortable with Dr Lawton and staff that I had a different procedure subsequently to that. I am extremely pleased with those results as well. Since then, I have referred multiple family members and friends to Dr Lawton. Many of them have had procedures with him and are just as pleased. Dr Lawton has continued to follow me and my progress for 10 years now (I visit the office annually for follow up exams at no cost!) In addition, his nurses and staff have always been available to me whenever I've had any questions. If you are in need of any sort of cosmetic enhancements, without a doubt, visit Dr Lawton.
