What Patients Say about Dr. McBride
“I wanted to look refreshed and natural—like me, only better. My goal wasn’t to try to look like a 20-year-old. I was lucky to find Dr. McBride. He’s a very good listener and such a sincere, kind person. He wanted to know what was bothering me and what my expectations were. He recommended a solution that I felt comfortable with, unlike the first surgeon I talked to. My husband was impressed with Dr. McBride too.”
“The night before my surgery Dr. McBride called to make sure I was fine and ready, which was such a wonderful personal touch. I was confident and slept so well through the night!” “I feel great about the way I look now. My husband is always happy to see me and agrees that it’s the best investment I could have made. I feel more self-assured, happy and confident, and it shows! People tell me I look fantastic. When I visited my family they said, “Wow, you look younger and so rested. Texas must really suit you!” I look so natural they didn’t realize I had something done.”
Linda maintains her skin by using Dr. McBride’s AmazingFaces skin care products. “The quality of my skin has changed substantially since I started using AmazingFaces products.” “If you’re thinking about refreshing your look, I would recommend seeing Dr. McBride before anyone else. He’s not only good at what he does, he’s a kind and caring person and this is reflected in his staff as well. They are all just wonderful people.”
“I enjoy riding my motorcycle, but after I turned 50, I could feel my jowls flapping in the breeze! I go to the gym and take care of myself, so I decided to look into cosmetic surgery. I had never talked to a cosmetic surgeon before and didn’t know what to expect, but Dr. McBride was very re-assuring and made me feel comfortable. I trusted him.”
“I’ve been in business all my life and I know good service. I don’t just expect it, I demand it, and I found it with Dr. McBride and his staff. There was no wait time when I visited his office and everyone is friendly. They make you feel special and welcome. They are very good people.”
“This is elective surgery and it’s not just chicken and gravy, there was some recovery required, but I am delighted with the results. People I haven’t seen for a while are amazed at how great I look!”
Dwight had always used skin care products and switched to AmazingFaces. “The products Celia recommended keep my skin looking great.”
“I’m in sales and it’s important to put my best foot forward and feel confident. In our society, people judge you by their first impression. I didn’t want to look aged and tired or sad. I wanted to make a subtle change with a natural appearance.”
“Dr. McBride was highly recommended to me by a friend. During the consultation I could tell Dr. McBride knows what he’s doing and that gave me confidence. He’s professional, but has a warm personality. He talked to me about what I wanted, then we explored different options. I decided to go with the fat transfer and brow lift.”
“I’m very pleased with the results. It’s made a big difference. I look brighter and more rested. If what you see in the mirror bothers you, go ahead and get something done. I’m so glad I did. It’s an investment in your overall well-being.”
“My aging neck bothered me more than anything else. I wanted to get something done and to find someone reputable—someone I could innately trust. My son, an orthodontist, recommended him for IPL treatments. I didn’t hesitate to talk to Dr. McBride about doing more.”
“His office is very calming, and his staff is wonderful. Dr. McBride has a great demeanor and gentle bedside manner. He’s very attentive and explains things well. He tells you what to expect right after surgery and over time.”
“I feel great now! I celebrated my 60th birthday last month and look young for my age. There’s real intrinsic value in this. When you look good, you’re more self-confident. I work with people who are under 40 and I feel good about the way I look. It was an excellent investment and I would do it again. It’s not like a car or something else that immediately starts to depreciate. If you’re thinking about getting something done, do it. You won’t regret it!”
“My jowls and neck bothered me terribly. I liked that fact that he only does facial cosmetic work. After my consultation I called a reference who told me she had seen around 20 surgeons before selecting Dr. McBride. After the consultation and hearing her remarks, I knew Dr. McBride was the one!”
“I felt very comfortable with Dr. McBride. He lets you tell him what’s bothering you and never makes you feel rushed. He even sketched out what he wanted to do and showed it to me. He’s just a delight! After my procedure, Dr. McBride himself called to see how I was doing. His staff is also very nice and professional.”
“My husband has been very complimentary and thinks I look great. After the EasyLift I saw a friend who said, “I know you must have done something, but I don’t know what! Whatever it is, you look fabulous!” That really impressed me and speaks to Dr. McBride’s work because the results look so natural.”
“I’m very pleased. The results look even better than I had expected. I would recommend Dr. McBride to anyone!”
“I wanted to get my nose done for a while. The first surgeon I saw didn’t listen to me, and I noticed that all of the women in his office had the same nose. I wanted a nose that fit my face and someone who would listen.”
“Everyone in his office was so nice and friendly. When I met with Dr. McBride he really got involved. He talked with me about what I wanted, then took pictures and used a computer program to show me what my new nose could look like. I had no doubt that he would do the best job possible and that I’d be happy with the results.”
“What really impressed me was that Dr. McBride called me both before and after my surgery. He’s very caring and considerate.”
“I love my nose! I’m so happy with the results. It looks very natural. People that know me don’t say, “Good nose job.” Instead, they say, “You look great. I don’t know what you’ve done, but you look awesome.” It’s just what I wanted…a subtle change and improvement, but not such a dramatic change that everyone would know what I did.
“I’ve had laser hair removal at Dr. McBride’s office and I use his AmazingFaces skin care products. I have so much more confidence about the way I look now.”
Discover the Secret of Amazing Skin
Clear, smooth, luminous skin has incredible allure and sex appeal. Equally appealing on men and women, it represents youth, beauty, personal care and health. Thanks to Dr. McBride’s AmazingFaces therapeutic skin care line, you can have radiant, smooth, blemish-free skin with a relatively simple, customized skin-care program. Working together, certified aesthetician Celia Le Mestre, and Dr. McBride evaluate your skin and design a comprehensive treatment plan to give you the most beautiful skin possible.
Celia has over 20 years of experience in skincare, including five years each in dermatology and maxillofacial surgery. After years of experience with hundreds of skin care products, Dr. McBride and Celia identified the very best qualities of each product, then incorporated them into their own AmazingFaces therapeutic skin care line.
AmazingFaces products are formulated to minimize the number of products each patient needs. As a result, skin care costs less and takes less time. “We selected the ideal ingredients for each product to deliver the best therapeutic effect. Patients say they enjoy the sensual feel of the products and notice rapid improvements in their skin,” Dr. McBride said.
Celia added, “Our products are formulated with natural ingredients. They are gentle, never harsh. Patients love them and rave about their results.”
EasyLift—Perfect for Most People
How many good face lifts have you noticed? You’re right, this is a trick question! Good face lifts, like Dr. McBride’s EasyLift face lift, which addresses moderate aging, look so natural you won’t realize the person you are looking at had anything done. They just look naturally youthful. The EasyLift delivers impressive results with less surgery and less downtime than a traditional facelift, and at a fraction of the cost! Q: What is done with an EasyLift? Dr. McBride: “I tighten the skin, and the muscle layer under the skin, using a multi-layer technique. This smoothes the neck, eliminates jowls, and lifts the cheeks to yield natural, athletic, youthful contours. I often combine an EasyLift with other procedures, such as fat transfer, an endoscopic brow lift or eyelid surgery, to rejuvenate the whole face and keep features in balance.” Q: Why do you call this procedure an EasyLift? Dr. McBride: “It’s simpler than other techniques in many aspects, but extremely effective because of the meticulous surgical detail observed throughout the procedure. The “easy” part of the procedure is the simplified recovery and reduced down time experienced by the patient. An EasyLift takes about three hours and is performed under light general anesthesia in our surgical office suite. You recover quickly and will be ready to go home in about one hour.”
Dr. McBride offers a comprehensive set of innovative services for the face that include non- and minimally invasive procedures, as well as surgery. Procedures can be performed in combination to rejuvenate all areas of the face simultaneously, producing exquisite balance and harmony.
“My goal is to provide natural-looking results with minimal risks and complications, and as little downtime as possible. I encourage patients to do the simplest procedures that will meet their cosmetic and financial goals. There is never any pressure to make a decision or to have more surgery than someone wants or needs.
I want patients to feel comfortable with me, know that their safety is a priority for me and my staff, trust that I will always use my best judgment, and know that I will not leave the operating room until the result is as good as it can be.”
Dr. McBride’s beautifully appointed, fully-equipped in-office surgical suite and recovery facility adhere to the latest surgical and monitoring standards. Patients enjoy maximum privacy and convenience while saving on the expense of a hospital admission. Dr. McBride noted, “We have created a lovely, relaxing environment where we control every detail and provide the best experience for our patients”.
