Patient Testimonials:

“Dr. Talbert was originally recommended to me by a friend who had a breast augmentation from Dr. Talbert 7 years ago and has had no complications. I was very impressed with his record and the faith his staff had in him. Dr. Talbert’s honest and no-nonsense approach made me feel comfortable and confident in his ability to create the natural look and shape that I wanted. The staff at Arkansas Plastic Surgery and The Surgical Pavilion were very welcoming and made every effort to ensure that I was comfortable. I never had any problems with nausea, pain, or bruising, and I am shocked by how quick and easy the recovery process has been! I was given plenty of informative literature pre-op and the Arkansas Plastic Surgery staff are always willing to answer any questions I have. Arkansas Plastic Surgery has various implant sizes on hand, so you don’t have to wait for them to order your implants or worry about sizing. Dr. Talbert understood and created exactly what I wanted. I am so happy with my results and would gladly recommend Dr. Talbert and Arkansas Plastic Surgery in a heartbeat!”

“I am in my late twenties and have a 5-year-old child. Since my daughter was born, I wasn’t ever happy with my breasts because of how small they were and the way clothes didn’t seem to fit or look right. I never felt they were proportionate to my build and height. I finally decided it was time to do something about it and made an appointment with Dr. Talbert. I trusted him completely because of his education combined with his years of experience. I felt confident that he would be able to achieve the look I was wanting. I brought in some pictures and described what was important to me. I didn’t request a certain size, but instead I just explained the look I was going for and told Dr. Talbert to do whatever was needed to achieve my goals. It has now been 3 months since my surgery and I absolutely love my new look. Perfect size, perfect feel and perfect fit! I am extremely happy with the results and would absolutely recommend Dr. Talbert to anyone who is considering plastic surgery.”

“I am 54 years old and have always tried to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I eat right and exercise daily! But after I turned 50, it became harder to keep fat from accumulating in all the wrong places, no matter how much I exercised! I became very frustrated with the way my body was changing. I decided to make an appointment with Dr. Talbert to discuss body contouring. I chose Dr. Talbert because of his impeccable reputation as a plastic surgeon, and his years of experience, training and education. When I told him I was tired of having fat accumulate on my hips, thighs and stomach, he suggested that I have liposuction and a tummy tuck. I had always wished that my breasts were larger, so I decided to have a breast augmentation at the same time as the other surgery. I completely trusted Dr. Talbert to make my breasts, stomach, hips and thighs proportionate and natural looking. I am completely thrilled with my new body! Dr. Talbert’s surgical skills are amazing! I have very little scarring from the tummy tuck and breast aug, and the fat bulges are all gone! I look and feel like a new woman!
Thank you so much, Dr. Talbert!!!”

“I just wanted to say thank you for everything! You have no idea what you and your staff have done for me. After two pregnancies and breast feeding, I never thought that my body would be the same again. Now, thanks to you, it is even better! I never knew what a difference a breast augmentation and tummy tuck could make in my appearance. I have a confidence about me that I didn’t have before. Your professionalism, expertise, and caring nature made it all so easy.”

“Words cannot express how much I appreciate everything that you have done for me. I have been an A cup my entire life. I never felt good in a swim suit or even in the clothes I wore. Now I am a full D and could not be happier. From the initial consultation to the final post op appointment, you and your staff always made me feel so comfortable and were always available to answer all of my questions.”

“You have changed my life! After being diagnosed with breast cancer and having double mastectomies, I never thought I would be comfortable with my appearance again. You were with me every step of the way! Not only did you take care of my breast reconstruction, but you cared about me. Thank you for everything you have done. Hopefully, my cancer nightmare is over but I will never forget you. I am forever grateful.”

“THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! I never knew I could look and feel so good about myself! You are amazing. What a gifted and talented surgeon you are.”

“I was so nervous and scared, especially about being put to sleep. But everyone made me feel so comfortable from my first consult through my final follow-up appointment. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the professionalism of Dr. Talbert and his staff of registered nurses. Knowing that my surgery was performed in a hospital certified environment with board certified anesthesiologists made me feel so much better.”

“After researching several local doctors, I chose to undergo breast augmentation with Dr. Gary Talbert in April 2004. He was extremely thorough, professional and the results I received were even better than I could have ever imagined. I experienced little to no bruising and my breasts are still perky and natural-looking nearly 10 years later (and after two breast-fed children!) Perhaps the best compliment I have received, however, was when my OBGYN’s nurse asked me who had done my augmentation because she wanted to pass his name along to her own daughter who was hoping to have the surgery. I have recommended Dr. Talbert numerous times and will continue to recommend him to ANYONE considering ANY procedure. He is truly the best out there on both a personal and professional level! I am truly blessed to have chosen him as a physician!”
