Dr. Gary Talbert Patient Testimonals

Was impressed with Dr. Talbert and his staff from the consultation all the way through each follow up apt after surgery. Very caring, thoughtful, and took the time needed to answer any questions I had. Would recommend Dr. Talbert to anyone looking for breast augmentation!!!” - Kristi

“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!” - Jasmine

“I had gone for a consultation at another well known M.D. before going to Dr. Talbert and the experience was day and night different. I remember leaving my first consultation from the other Dr in tears and had written off even having my procedure done. Afterward, a friend of mine suggested I try Dr. Talbert and raved about how good he was. I went for the consultation and he was very attentive and cared about what "I" wanted. He listened to me and took the things i was looking for into consideration before giving professional advice on what i needed. I am so thankful that I used him over the first M.D. that I had a consultation with, and so glad that I sought a second opinion through him before I decided to forego doing the procedure. I could not be more happy with my results and I would not change ANYTHING. Everything turned out PERFECT! I really believe that there is no one better to see for a breast augmentation. I was looking for a modest, natural looking change and that is exactly what I got. We discussed sizes and i trusted his judgement on what size I needed to accomplish the look i wanted. Again, I could not be happier. I would HIGHLY recommend him.” - Anonymous

“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.” - Lauren

“When I looked for reviews for Dr. Talbert, there were many for breast augmentation, but none for breast reduction. I wanted to make sure that those seeking a reduction have some information on Dr. Talbert. I had my reduction 3 weeks ago, and I could not be more pleased with the result already. At my consultation, I felt that Dr. Talbert was a little gruffer in manner than necessary, but this is probably a result of dealing with people who have very unrealistic expectations. By the end of the consult, he had softened a bit, addressed my concerns, and I felt confident in his hands. He estimated that he would remove 400 g from one breast and 800 from the other, and his estimate was dead on (final report was 372 from one and 724 from the other). I was in a 30J, and although it is too soon to determine my new size, i am currently fitting into about a D cup. Because I was used to seeing myself so big, this felt tiny at first, but now that I have lived with them a few weeks, I think they are perfect. He is a very skilled surgeon, and this is evident from my result so far. I have had very little bruising or pain. My incisions are healing beautifully. I have spent a lot of time on realself.com and compared to photos I have seen, my new breasts look just spectacular! They are very even and symmetrical. It looks like my scars will be minimal. Follow up appointments with Dr. Talbert have been great. He is very supportive, and both he and his nurse practitioner, Monica, are very reassuring and good at what they do. I would definitely do this surgery with Dr. Talbert again if I had the chance.”  - Anonymous

“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!!!” - Ann

“After having lost significant weight and dealing with extreme asymmetry all of my life (one breast a A cup the other a B), I decided at 40 I was ready to speak with a plastic surgeon about making a change. I couldn't be happier with results. Dr . Talbert made my hopes a reality. I am now a beautiful D cup and am able to wear any bra and have both cups fit and look proportionate. I have more confidence than ever before. I love that Dr Talbert gave me multiple options for implant styles and companies and I couldn't be happier with my choice. His nurses were with me every step of the way and were always there to offer encouragement and answer all my questions. I am glad I had the procedure and couldn't think of doing it without him or his nurses again!” - Dawn

“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 breastfeeding, 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.” - Nicole

“I felt confident from beginning to end that Dr. Talbert and his nurses understood my wants and expectations and exceeded all of those. They listened, helped me make informed decisions over implant style, companies, and sizes.” - Anonymous

“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 swimsuit 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.” - Taylor

“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.” - Ava

“I went to Dr. Talbert after being diagnosed with breast cancer and needing a bilateral mastectomy. He did the reconstruction process. It was a very stressful time for me and he was very patient and understanding. He always addressed all my concerns and made sure I knew what to expect. I was very pleased.” - Anonymous

“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.” - Sophia

“Dr. Talbert did my tummy tuck. He took plenty of time with the consultation and explained everything well. He kept my expectations realistic. Just before the surgery I felt I had his full attention (He marks what he's going to do on your stomach with a pen.) and felt confident in his hands. After surgery I was well taken care of and had no complications. The first week is ROUGH, but you get through. Now, (7 months later) everything looks great. I have more of an hourglass figure than I have EVER had. The scar is very thin and pale. My belly button is just as I wanted it. I still have some numbness and a bit of fluid retention in my lower abdomen, but expect that to become less and less with time. I am super happy with how my tummy looks now. Dr. Talbert is very good at what he does, and I would recommend him to anyone.” -  Roxanne

“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.” - Chandler

“After my hysterectomy more that twenty years ago, my breast size begun to increase dramatically. I went from a B cup to more than a DD(which I spilled out of). I had a lot of discomfort and pain from this, and well as a very bad self image. It was very hard to find clothes to fit. Wear a 9-10 pants and skirts...I was extremely top heavy. I had debated about having breast reduction surgery because I thought I would have too much down time time from work...This would have NOT been the problem with the surgery and care I received from Dr. Talbert and his very qualified staff. I had minimal pain(comparatively)...so wish I had done this sooner! Dr. Talbert more than met my expectations..not only did he get me back to 'my size', but her put my breasts back where they had come from! I am almost giddy with the new me! My husband is VERY pleased as well. My scar tissue is getting better quickly, and the sensitivity in my breast and tissues is back to being normal! I have already recommend Dr. Talbert to several people! I know I could not be more pleased and happy with the results! Thank you, Dr. Talbert and staff.  PS. I'm a 70 year old lady.... “ - Margaret E.

“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!” - Timie

I had a breast reduction, taking me from a 40H to a 40C. I cannot say enough amazing things about Dr. Talbert and his staff.
