Testimonials from the patients of Dr. James D. McMahan

Testimonial for Procedure: Breast Augmentation

After nursing three children, my ‘girls’ were pointing south. I saw four plastic surgeons but didn’t like what I heard from any of them until I met with Dr. McMahan. He was the only doctor that really listened to me and gave me the answers that I was looking for. I had almost no pain with my surgery and I was back to work in three days! My ‘girls’ are happy again and so am I. Thank you, Dr. McMahan!”
~ Denise, Columbus

Testimonial for Procedure: Facelift (Rhytidectomy)

Being in the medical field, I wasn’t going to just anyone for my facelift. Dr McMahan’s credentials and reputation are outstanding compared to other plastic surgeons I was considering. I was so relaxed going into surgery because I knew that I had made the right choice. I look at least twenty years younger and no one can see my scars. When I go out with my daughter, people think that I’m her sister and I love it! No one but Dr. McMahan will ever touch my face.

Testimonial for Procedure: Breast Augmentation

I spent forever trying to find the right doctor to perform my breast implant surgery. Dr. McMahan came very highly recommended by my doctor and two of my nurse friends. I knew I made the right choice during my consultation. No other doctor spent nearly as much time with me as Dr. McMahan did. He answered all my questions and helped me pick the perfect size of implants. My surgery was a breeze and now I’m HOT again. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
– Angela, Dublin

Testimonial for Procedure: Liposuction

I had ‘Smart-lipo’ on my stomach by another doctor in Columbus and it was a disaster! Later I found out the doctor wasn’t a real plastic surgeon. I wasn’t going to fall for any more gimmicks. I really did my homework this time to find the right plastic surgeon to help me and Dr. McMahan was the only one that passed all my tests. His liposuction procedure was so much easier and he magically cured my tummy. Dr. McMahan is the only plastic surgeon I will ever trust.
– Susan, Grove City

Testimonial for Procedure: Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

After three pregnancies and two C-sections, no amount of exercise could get rid of my excess skin and tummy bulge. I chose Dr. McMahan after seeing many other doctors because my consultation with him was by far the most thorough. My recovery was much easier than I expected and I’ve lost two dress sizes. I can actually wear a bikini again. Thank you Dr. McMahan!
– Laura, Columbus

Testimonial for Procedure: Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)

Dr. McMahan, thank you for my new eyelids. I can’t believe how easy it was! My hoods and bags have miraculously disappeared. At my high school reunion I looked 20 years younger than everyone else. (OK, the Fraxel laser helped as well) My only regret is that I didn’t have it done years ago.
– Mary, Columbus

Testimonial for Procedure: Breast Augmentation

I highly recommend Dr. McMahan. His consultation for my Breast Augmentation and mini-tummy tuck was very thorough and considerate of my concerns. My end result is better than I thought it would be. He did more to make sure it was done right. My recovery for both procedures was fantastic and timely. I would recommend Dr. McMahan to anyone!
– Wendy

Testimonial for Procedure: Otoplasty (Ear Surgery)

Dr. McMahan changed my life! I had no idea how self-conscious I was about my ears sticking out. He did the surgery in his office with just a local anesthetic and the recovery was only a few days. My results look completely natural with no visible scars. It is amazing how much better I feel about myself.
– Tom

Testimonial for Procedure: Breast Augmentation

I was very pleased with the outcome of my breast implants and liposuction that Dr. McMahan performed on me. I wanted to get rid of unwanted bulges in my thighs that would not go away with exercise and he did that. I am also much happier with my breast size, I went from a 36A to a 36C, not too big but just good enough to wear things I could not wear before and to make things look nicer on me.
– Angie

Testimonial for Procedure: Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

I had a mini-tummy tuck done by another plastic surgeon in Columbus and was unhappy that I still had a large bulge below my belly button. I got a referral to see Dr. McMahan and after looking at me, he felt that my muscles had not been tightened as much as they needed to be. He did another mini-tummy tuck on me (for less money than it cost me the first time!) and my stomach is perfectly flat now with hardly any scarring. I am thrilled with my results and only wish that I had seen Dr. McMahan first!
– Tammy

Testimonial for Procedure: Facelift (Rhytidectomy)

Dr. McMahan did my facelift, forehead lift and eyes. The results were great! I traveled two and half hours to see him and I was not disappointed. The incisions were done so well they were invisible. I have always felt if you look good, you feel good, and if you feel good, you do good. Thank you Dr. McMahan.
– JoAnn

Testimonial for Procedure: Cosmetic Surgery

What an honest, caring, wonderful physician. Thank you Dr. McMahan.
– Valerie

Testimonial for Procedure: Breast Augmentation

I was what they call a ‘Doctor shopper.’ I wanted breast augmentation and wanted the best surgeon that I could find. I saw several surgeons that were recommended to me by friends but didn’t feel comfortable with most of them and was not very happy with the consultations. Once I saw Dr. McMahan, I knew I had the right doctor. He spent so much more time with me than any of the other doctors and answered all of my questions. He allowed me to help make the decision about the type and size of implants which some of the other doctors wouldn’t allow. My surgery went great and I was off of pain medication in less than two days even though they were put under the muscle. I strongly recommend that anyone interested in plastic surgery, especially breast augmentation, see Dr. McMahan.
– Karen

Testimonial for Procedure: Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

I had liposuction of my stomach by a doctor in Columbus that I thought was a plastic surgeon. Unfortunately, I didn’t do my homework. It turns out he wasn’t even a real surgeon but I was fooled by all of the diplomas and certificates. I think a lot of them were fake. What I really needed was a tummy tuck because of the extra skin after having three kids but that wasn’t even offered to me. Dr. McMahan did my tummy tuck and now I look soooooooooo much better! I won’t make that mistake again.
– Rachel

Testimonial for Procedure: Breast Augmentation

Dr. McMahan took a lot of fat off my body and made me sexy again with a tummy tuck and breast augmentation. I love this doctor and I never knew any other doctor to take out as much fat as this one. Highly recommended!
– Dawn

Testimonial for Procedure: Cosmetic Surgery

– Jennifer

Testimonial for Procedure: Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

I had gastric bypass surgery and lost 135 pounds. I had a TON of extra skin. Dr. McMahan did a tummy tuck combined with a lower body lift on me and I look great! It was so much easier than I had expected. Now I’m going back to get ‘the girls’ lifted.
– Jan

Testimonial for Procedure: Cosmetic Surgery

I cannot give a higher recommendation to Dr. McMahan and his staff. Cathy and Grace are absolutely terrific! The atmosphere in his office is comfortable, relaxed and very enjoyable. I can’t imagine going anywhere else.
– Betty

Testimonial for Procedure: Breast Augmentation

I had breast augmentation by another surgeon in Columbus and have had nothing but problems. I got Dr. McMahan’s name from a friend who made the same mistake that I did. He took care of her first and then I got in to see him as fast as I could. WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!! Both of us now look terrific but could have saved thousands if we had seen Dr. McMahan first.
– Tina

Testimonial for Procedure: Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)

I got fed up with everyone telling me how tired I looked. I went to Dr. McMahan and had my eyelids done in the office. It was quick and easy with hardly any pain after surgery. What a great experience!
– Mary

Testimonial for Procedure: Breast Augmentation

I’m lucky. I had ‘inside information’ on who to see for my tummy tuck and breast implants because of my friends who work at the surgery center. They all said that Dr. McMahan was their first choice and now I know why. I couldn’t be happier with my results and it wasn’t nearly as painful as I had expected. I strongly suggest that anyone interested in plastic surgery in central Ohio see Dr. McMahan.
– Patty
