Reviews

"I had a breast lift with augmentation and a tummy tuck, minus the muscle repair, with Dr. Poindexter and it was honestly one of the very best decisions of my life. I was left with extra skin after weight loss, was tired of seeing the loose skin and exercising was uncomfortable. I went to multiple consultations before going to Austin-Weston and meeting Dr. Poindexter. During my consult I knew without a doubt he was the one to perform my surgery. Other Dr’s hadn’t made the surgical plan sound unique to my needs and he did! Also, I’m mildly OCD and particular about how things look so, if I think my results are unbelievable then you know he’s stellar. Also, every single staff member there has been nothing but a delight on all occasions."

"I went for a consult for TT and lipo with Dr. Poindexter late last year. I was scheduled for surgery mid March 2021 and I must say while I was nervous about the surgery, all said and done it is something that I wished I would’ve done sooner. The results are phenomenal and the whole care team from start to finish has been nothing but wonderful. Only great things to say. If your thinking about any type of plastic surgery, stop thinking and give them a call to schedule your consult today!"

"Had an absolute fantastic experience at Austin. Had services done a decade ago and still getting feedback on how good I look. So happy with the services provided by Dr. Poindexter and the rest of the staff that I returned for more services this year. Again ecstatic with results. Can’t say enough except I was/am so pleased that I returned for additional services and referred two family members for services as well. Lots of trust in the team."
