Wow! Where do I even begin? Dr. LoMonaco is, in every way, a first class surgeon! But it wouldn't do him any justice unless I can support my opinion! I'm a mother of 2 and through the pregnancies and breast feeding, my breast had sagged to a point of no return! Not to mention that all the weight gain from the pregnancies, my abdomen muscle had separated with unbearable stretch marks! I did extensive research on surgeons and had gotten consultations from other surgeons before I saw Dr. LoMonaco. Because of the exceptional ratings and reviews on him, I decided that I would leave the best for last. Boy, was I glad! All the other surgeons had recommended that to correct my breast without doing a full lift, they would either have to put larger implants or do a "wedge" resection which would leave long visible scars on my breast. I wasn't fond with either suggestions! I was already a large "C" borderline "D" and only 5'4" at 115 lbs so going larger was never what I wanted to do and who the heck wants long visible scars? So, after hearing this, I wasn't really hopeful that Dr. LoMonaco would be able to do anything different for me. Regardless, I decided to call his office to schedule a consultation but he was so booked that his next available appointment was 1 month away! So, I made a bold move and found his email address and emailed him directly! And to my astonishment, he responded in a couple of hours and was able to squeeze me in that same week! I was already impressed but that was an understatement! When I actually met Dr. Lomonaco, he was such a pleasant person with incredible demeanor that would make anyone feel at ease! He was so thorough in his explanation of what he had recommended for me and took his time to answer all my questions! Unlike the other surgeons, I never felt rushed at all! After I told him what the other surgeons had suggested for my breasts, he just shook his head and told me what he would do. He would actually create new pockets internally for the new implants and I wouldn't have to go any bigger or have any long scars. The scars would be the same length as a regular breast augmentation procedure! As for the tummy tuck, he showed me pictures of his past work and they all looked amazing! The scar was so low and smooth that you can hide it with any bikini! After my consultation, I knew that going with anyone else would be settling and if I'm getting these critical procedures done that I will have to get them from the best of the best! So, I scheduled my surgery with him! Before I forget to mention that all his staff, from nurse to front desk, were all very professional and accommodating! He has this one amazing nurse, Destiny, that would be your point of contact from the time of your consultation and throughout your surgery day as well as post op. Did I mention that she's AMAZING? Destiny was always, always available to answer any questions or concerns you have, pre-op or post-op! My surgery went well without any complications. Because of the the tummy tuck, I was required to stay overnight at the Houston Hospital for Specialized Surgery which historically had pretty bad reviews on customer service. But fortunately for me, I have nothing but good things to say about them as well! From the nutrition personnel to operating nurse and post-op nurses to the anesthesiologist! They were all exceptional! They were a great compliment to Dr. LoMonaco's team! So, here's where the true colors really showed...post-op results and post-op care. Immediately, 1 day post-op, I can see drastic improvement on my abdomen! Even with all the swelling, my skin was tight and I have my waistline back! When I was released from the hospital, I was so concern with pain because I have such low tolerance for it! But Dr. LoMonaco thought of everything! I had a pain pump that was on auto-dispensed over a couple of days! This was great pain management! For the 1st week and up to my 1st post-op follow-up appointment with Dr. LoMonaco, Destiny called me each day to make sure I'm doing well and to answer any questions. I naturally have a lot of questions but she took her time to make sure that I was comfortable and was always patient with me. She made me felt so genuinely cared for and that I wasn't just a number on her list that once the surgery is over that her responsibility was done! I'm at 6 weeks post-op and I can't be any happier with the results! I still have a little swelling on my lower abdomen but my waistline is about 2 inches smaller and have minimal stretchmarks but they are all tight and light. My breasts are perfectly sized and perky without any long visible scars! And Dr. LoMonaco and his staff, specifically Destiny, still give me the same first class service and care that I got when I first met them during my consultation! Thank you Dr. L and Destiny! You always know how to over deliver!! :-)

Dr. Lomonaco is an amazing doctor. I had a wonderful experience with him and his awesome team! I was really nervous about going in for my consultation, but the office was inviting and the atmosphere was friendly. After a few minutes and chatting with his staff, I felt very comfortable and welcomed. I had a ton of extra skin around my stomach due to rapid weight loss, and I went to Dr. Lomonaco to have it removed. I didn't have any issues post surgery, and my scars are healing very nicely! They called everyday for the couple weeks I was home to check on me and see how I was feeling. I felt like I was taken care of very well by him and his team! I have seen Dr. Lomonaco's work on some other acquaintances and their scars are hardly there. I really had to look for them to see them! I cant wait until my scars finish healing and look the same way!! I would definitely recommend him and his staff to anyone who is looking to have any type of reconstructive surgery done. I just want to publicly thank him for all that he has done for me and all the support he has given me. I feel strong and confident and I am just so so happy with everything!!

He is the most amazing plastic surgeon! Not just for his work, but also the way he goes above and beyond for his patients. It has been 8 years since my breast augmentation, but I still feel so strongly about my experience with Dr. J. Lo I wanted to review. Originally I had a consultation with another Dr. That left me feeling so uneasy about the procedure that I didn't even want the procedure anymore. He was going to cut me up everywhere , move this and that around, he treated me like I was dumb for asking questions and made me feel like I was wasting his time! I did more research and contacted 2 more surgeons- 1 is very well known for breast augmentation in Houston and the other was Dr. Lomanaco, I emailed both and they both e-mailed back. The first Dr. Sent me a generic "Whatever your issue is we can help" but Dr. Lomanaco specifically addressed my questions and concerns in his e-mail( I later found out HE e-mailed me himself! Obviously I made an appt. with Dr. Lomanaco and not the other guy. His waiting room was full when I arrived, but during my consultation he took me into his actual office and must have talked to me for over an hour like I was the only patient he had. I immediately trusted him like an old friend. On surgery day I just layers in pre op with my hands behind my head without a nervous bone in my body because I knew he was going to an amazing job and he did! Trust is the greatest gift a surgeon can give a first time patient. Don't go to anyone else- he is more certified, more experienced, and kinder than any other surgeon you're thinking of using.

I was referred to Dr LoMonoco by a friend. At which point my husband and I did full research on the doctor himself and the procedures I would need to get done. When we met w/ the doctor he was fantastic. He made us feel at home and answered w/ patience all 100 questions we put on the table. I was very intimidated to have this surgery for I feel it is a very vain thing to do but had no choice after losing 154lb over the past year and a half, I have so much hanging skin there was no other options. The doctor seemed at ease w/ what he does and in turn made me feel this was the right thing to do. I am currently in the 3rd week of my recovery after having a lower tummy lift and a breast lift done. I am excited to see what I will look like when recovered at 100%. Right now I still have quite a bit of swelling in the abdomen area and some healing in the butt area to go away. I already have my 2nd surgery booked for Jan to complete my journey to have my arms and thighs done. Dr LoMonoco has truly made me feel like part of the family and caters to my needs per I know I am a high maintenance client per my mind gets the best of me. But he has never made me feel like I am a bother and is always there for me when I need him.

Dr. John Lomonaco is everything I ever wanted in a plastic surgeon. Not only is he a gifted artistic surgeon, I was ecstatic with my results but he had other important qualities usually overlooked in the industry. His bedside manner was impeccable. He and his staff were always so welcoming and gentle. They made me feel relaxed and comfortable during the entire process. Dr. Lomonaco was extremely down to Earth. All of my questions were thoroughly answered and I was never made to feel rushed. He has a terrific sense of humor and constantly followed up to manage the post-op discomfort. I would highly recommend Dr. Lomonaco. He performed a mini mommy make-over (tummy tuck & lipo). Kate– Houston, TX

Dr. Lomonaco was amazing! I first met him 7 years ago, after my weight loss. I had lost so much weight that my breast had become deflated balloons. I was super self conscious about them. Dr. L was able to give me back my self confidence. He was a great listener, very attentive and knowledgeable. He is a perfectionist and has an amazing attention to detail (no-one knew I had implants!) His staff is amazing and makes you feel like a family member not a patient. Stacy and Destiny have always been super attentive to my needs. I highly recommend his practice to anyone. Seven years later, I will be returning to him for a mommy makeover! VM

I understand you will read numerous positive reviews about Dr. LoMonaco and wonder if you are genuinely getting honest feedback – the answer is YES! Dr. LoMonaco is truly amazing. He is a brilliant surgeon; but even more than that, he is an incredibly wonderful doctor who really cares for his patients. The first time I met with Dr. L for my consultation I was incredibly nervous, but he put me right at ease. Although I had done extensive research on my procedure, I naturally still had a number of questions -- he answered all in great detail. Once I decided I would have him perform my procedure, I booked my surgery and was able to have it done within a month. I am very happy with the outcome. We had several consultations and conversations and I was clear about what I was looking for -- and Dr. L delivered. My augmentation is modest and his work reflected what was best for my body type/size. He is a professional and will make the appropriate judgments necessary to give you the best results, while honoring your wishes. His staff, Stacey and Destiny are amazing! They are his right-hand people and another reason I encourage you to see Dr. LoMonaco. Destiny called me everyday for several days after my surgery and Stacey is incredible about answering my questions via email. An area to be aware of: It is not uncommon to wait 30 minutes to an hour after your scheduled appointment time to see Dr. L. It’s not ideal, but because he is incredibly busy and often short staffed, this has happened to me several times. You may want to plan accordingly. There was also a hick-up regarding my scheduled surgery time. Dr. L personally came to see me to apologize and made sure his team did whatever necessary to make me feel comfortable. I truly appreciated the gesture, especially given how nervous and anxious I was the day of surgery. I trust Dr. LoMonaco and will go to him again if and when necessary.
