Dr. Looby put an expander in for me when I had breast cancer. He also removed it for my 2nd surgery, took out a port, put in an implant and did a back flap reconstruction under my armpit. It was a rather complicated surgery that involved connecting many muscles, etc. Overall, I think he did a great job. My shoulder and back muscles all work great. I have had to do some P/T which is normal. He is very caring, and answers any questions you may have but you have to ask!

Dr. Looby did a tummy tuck after loosing over 200 lbs. It is horrible! He made my belly button about an inch off center to the right. He did not lift the pubic skin with the tuck so I look like I have a sock stuffed in my pants. I am a woman, this is very embarrassing! I had a TSA pat down and she asked what this bulge was in my pants. When I questioned post surgery, he said it would have cost more, but didn't tell me prior, Couldn't afford to correct it. More embarrassing than loose skin!

Yes, his office staff can be terrible and some people are a little put off by his bedside manner at first but he is an excellent surgeon and a very caring person. I ended up having a butt flap surgery on a stage four pressure sore and he did an excellent job. I was in the hospital for two months and he was very caring and very professional. He knows what he is doing and will make sure it is done right. I would recommend him to anybody and I would go back to him if I ever needed anything..

Dr. Looby did an excellent job performing surgery. I was very pleased with my results. In addition, Dr. Looby took the time to answer my questions. He genuinely cared about my happiness with the results. I would recommend Dr. Looby!
