For my 49th birthday present to myself I've decided to get a breast reduction. It was the best decision/present that I've ever bought for myself. The surgery went without a hitch, Dr. Burton hands were blessed by God. I'm constantly looking at them and admiring them. I'm 2 weeks post-op and more than 100% satisfied with the results.
always professional,scheduled appointments are on time,tells you up front exactly what the treatment will entail.
I had a tummy tuck performed in February 2015. Since this surgery, I've had several follow up appointments with Dr. Burton and he's been an excellent doctor; I'd recommend Dr. Burton to anyone considering plastic surgery.
My overall experience was amazing. Dr. Burton was very understanding as far as what i needed for my body. I received lipo, and fat transfer and after two weeks i look amazing. I thank him and his staff for a wonderful bed side manner. Signed very happy customer.
Back for a second procedure, everything went smoothly as the first. Dr. Burton is the Best
