I can’t recommend Dr. Watumull enough!!! I was nervous to have my Breast augmentation and liposuction done, but he was AMAZING! I couldn’t not be happier with my results! They look amazing and natural and my hips look phenomenal!!! Dr. Watumull and his staff are very professional and are amazing at what they do! I will for sure be coming back to Dr Watumull for any future needs! -Kassie S.

Dr. Watumull and his staff were absolutely incredible. He went above and beyond at explaining every detail for my augmentation and put my mind at ease so I was ready for surgery. Nakai is also amazing, she answered all of my questions and neither her nor Dr. Watumull made me feel rushed in any way. It was a very great experience. -Courtni A.

My goal in visiting with Dr. Watumull was Breast Augmentation and a Tummy Tuck. During my consultation he recommended a Breast Lift due to the condition of my breast at the age of 49. Dr. Watumull took the time to explain why he recommended the Breast Lift along with me waiting 6 months after the Breast Lift procedure to get my implants done. Most doctors would have completed the implants and the Breast Lift at the same time. I am so glad I followed his recommendation. Six months later I had my Breast Augmentation and Tummy Tuck procedures completed at the same time. I had many stretch marks prior to surgery, which are all gone. The recovery time for these two procedures were minimal for me. My Breast and Tummy look absolutely AMAZING! I highly recommend Dr. Watumull for his professionalism, bedside manner and ability to transform a body into an unbelievable beautiful shape.

I highly recommend Dr. Watumull. He listened to my concerns and gave me his expert opinion on the best size for my body. My breasts came out better than I could have imagined. I started out very small and had significant tissue loss after breastfeeding. I was a little unsure on how big I wanted to go. Their office has a machine that takes 3D photos of your body and you can see what different sizes look like on YOUR body. This was very helpful in helping him get an idea of the look I was going for. I then allowed him to make the final decision based his expertise. He is incredible and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to have their breasts done. -Taylor H.

I have been seeing Dr. Watumull for many years now and everything that he does for me is fantastic. He listens to your concerns and his bedside manner is the best I’ve ever seen. I highly recommend Dr. Watumull. I have had several procedures done by him and all my friends have been in awe.

My experience with Dr. Watumull and his staff was top notch. He is a down to earth humble man who listened to my desires and needs and then turned them into exactly what I wanted. I had a tummy tuck and he nailed it!!! I had lots of concerns about my belly button looking fake and my scar being lumpy and weird. He is the best in the business! I have the perfect natural looking belly button and my scar is amazing!!! He also has compassion for what you are going through and is always there to answer questions. Very educated and knowledgeable in the field of plastic surgery and how to execute your needs for a better you. I’m overwhelmed with satisfaction!!!!! -Lacy V.

Had a Cosmetic Procudure done and I must say I am highly impressed with his expetise! Due to my circumstances they were able to take me in and make the suggested recommendation for my situation. I have fully recovered and I am truly happy with my results. I definitely recommend Dr. Watumall and his assistant Nakai! They are very down to earth and provide the best costumer service! You are more than a patient you become family! Thanks again. -Gilda L.

Extremely satisfied with my procedure and Dr. Watumull! Was very apprehensive regarding surgery, and Dr. Watumull and the entire staff were extremely kind, supportive, and understanding. Best of all I am SO HAPPY with my results!!!! Thank you Dr. Watumull and the entire staff!! I feel like a new person!!! -Cynthia H.

I had previously went to two other doctors before visiting Dr. Watumull and I was blown away by his staff and his bedside manner! His staff were super friendly and Dr. Watumull answered every question I had about my surgery (trust me, I had alot). The staff walked me through every step and really helped me when I was unsure about anything. I highly recommend Dr. Watumull!

Dr. Watumull has been my plastic surgeon for the past 5 years. He performed a breast reduction on me on 2012, and, not only was I pleased with the result, I was also very impressed with the efficiency and professionalism of his medical and office staff. So impressed, I’ve recently had a return visit and scheduled surgical improvements to my face. I trust Dr. Watumull 100%, and would recommend him and his staff for any plastic surgery you may be considering! – Lynn L.

Dr. Watumull changed my life! I recently had a septoplasty done and three weeks out I was a new person. I can breathe again , sleep again , smell again. I’m so glad I have finally found a physician who truly cares about his patients! Thank you Dr. Watumull! Sincerely, Lindsay G.

Dr. Watumull is by far the BEST Dr for Cosmetic Surgery!! The office staff was very kind called me throughout the whole process & even after to see how I was doing. Was respected more than a client and more like family. I would recommend him to anyone! I can guarantee he services exceeded my expectations. If your looking for a doctor you can trust, he is your go to! No situation is to big or small, he has what it takes to makes your dreams come true!

Dr Watumull is amazing. He was very honest about the procedure I wanted done and about the outcome. He is very professional and has a great bedside manner.

A true professional that is a master at his gift. His patience and compassion for excellence is only superseded by his skills and abilities that makes that goal of excellence a reality. He has true gift of vision and ability.

Excellent doctor. Excellent staff. All very friendly and helpful. The best doctor in Texas.”

Dr. Watumull has worked on our family several times in past several years. He literally saved by husband’s hand when he got an infection so bad he had to have surgery and therapy to be able to use it again. Had it not been for Dr. Watumull he would have lost his hand and his lively hood. Since then I have gone to him for trigger finger and carpal tunnel surgery. Both time I have been amazed at the efficiency and accuracy the whole office uses. I never have felt worried about the care either of us have received and will recommend him and Regional Plastic Surgery Center to any who ask. He and his team are AMAZING!”
– V.S.

Regional Plastic Surgery has been my go to place. I had my breast reconstruction, after breast cancer and mastectomy, by Dr. Watumull. After all the healing, my oncologist couldn’t tell which side was reconstructed, because they matched so well. All of the doctors there, are so real and down to earth, but more importantly, they really care and take the time to explain exactly what to expect after any surgical procedure. I have also had hand surgery for osteo/arthritis last August, 2013 and attended hand therapy there. They were wonderful. The spa estheticians are very astute and professional. They are very good at what they do. So many options for the skin are available. I have had a few of these treatments and have been 100% happy with the outcome. I just can’t imagine going anyplace other than RPS for any of their services offered. Everyone from Doctors to staff, really care about your well-being and they listen to your expectations and needs.”
– Linda

I felt special and at ease. No time was I worried. I was well informed of the procedure. I was comfortable in every way. The staff was helpful and professional. I will and do recommend Dr. Watumull to other people.”
– Marian

Dr. Watumull performed my primary breast augmentation, and he did a beautiful job. He listened attentively to what the outcome I desired was, and recommended sizes that matched my description. I had no complications and I am completely satisfied with my results.”
– Mora

Dr. Watumull is wonderful. He is very caring and so professional. I highly recommend him. I love my results.

I LOVE Dr. Watumull!”

I have seen Dr. Watumull for surgical procedures and cosmetic treatments and can honestly say that I have been extremely happy with the results. He is truly a remarkable plastic surgeon who is very knowledgeable and very good at educating patients so the desired results meet their expectations. I would definitely recommend him!!”

Dr. Watumull came highly recommended from friends and co-workers. 1 year since my breast augmentation, I am very pleased with the recovery time, results and the entire process. He and his staff were very professional, patient and thorough in responding to my many questions and with follow up. I am now recommending him to my friends!”

Dr. Watumull is an excellent, courteous and caring doctor. He has done a tremendous, beautiful job on me after my double mastectomy. He cares about his work and especially about the patient. Thank you Dr. Watumull for keeping me beautiful!”

Dr. Watamull is an outstanding surgeon and really cares about his patients! I’ve seen him for several cosmetic procedures plus a few emergencies involving my skin. I’m scheduled for my 3rd reconstructive surgery in March and plan on the fourth one in June. I would highly recommend him!! I saw 3 other surgeons prior to choosing him and am very happy with my choice. He is absolutely the BEST! – Tracie B.

As a healthcare provider myself, I can truly say that Dr. Watumull is an excellent physician and plastic surgeon. He has decades of experience and keeps himself up-to-date with new techniques and procedures. In my opinion, the best plastic surgeon should not make you look like a different person, just a better version of yourself. I haven’t met many plastic surgeons that I would trust my face to, but Dr. Watumull is a rare find!”

Dr. Watumull and his team gave me my life back! I am so happy with my results and my overall feeling about myself. His staff is extremely friendly (and always on time) and he genuinely cares for his patients. He takes the time to listen to concerns and provides thorough input about the surgery he will perform. He doesn’t just try to sell a surgery; he gives honest recommendation and outcomes (no surprises). Finding a cosmetic surgeon is an extremely difficult task but this doctor and his team deserve all the praise! I will always recommend them to my friends and family.

Excellent surgeon. Everything was done meticulously and precise. I had lipo and a mini-tummy tuck. I look great. Very happy with the results. Staff was professional and courteous and always answered any questions I had. I highly recommend Dr. Watumull for any plastic surgery procedures.

Dr. Watumull exceeded my expectations. What a beautiful job on my face, eyes and neck. The 2 hour drives for each visit is worth it. Recovery has been better than expected. I appreciate the passion that Dr. Watumull and his entire staff have for his patients/clients. Definitely will return for more work!

I had an amazing experience with Dr. Watumull! I recently had breast augmentation and couldn’t be happier! My results are fantastic, and I know they will get even better with time and healing. Dr. Watumull, along with his coordinator and nurses, were all so friendly and caring. I will not hesitate to recommend Dr. Watumull any chance I get!!!

Dr Watumull, thank you for changing lives and making a difference. Before my mommy makeover I spent years debating on whether or not this was the best option for me. After several consults I am so happy I chose Dr Watumull. I had excess skin from my c-sections and my breast were in need of life ! I am 14 weeks post surgery and extremely happy with the work Dr Watumull performed. Not a single regret only that I wish I had gone to Dr W sooner. I am finally wearing 2-piece with confidence! Thank you thank thank you to Dr Watumull and his amazing staff!!

Wow! Where do I begin? I am a hypochondriac. Additionally, I was terrified of surgery. I visited a few plastic surgeons. When I met Dr. Watumull, I knew he was the choice for me. Not only did he put me at ease with having surgery, his results were AMAZING. My regret is that I hadn’t had surgery with him sooner! The experience improved my quality of life. I had a breast reduction. The work not only greatly exceeded my aesthetic expectations, but almost immediately relieved my neck, back and shoulder pain. I also had rhinoplasty. I LOVE my new nose. Had I had this nose in my 20s, I probably would have never worked on my personality 🙂 I can’t believe I have this new nose! Not only is Dr. Watumull brilliant, his team is amazing. Everyone on his team is friendly and professional. Everyone listens, responds, and genuinely cares. I am not an easy person to please, and they left me without sufficient words to describe their skill, kindness, and commitment to excellence. THE BEST.

All I can say is WOW! I moved from out of town and finding the right doctor for my special needs was pertinent in such a big city. I received one referral from a neighbor and she was undeniably happy with her results. I had a flawless surgery with outstanding results. Great bedside manner and an artist in making women look great. You won’t regret seeing Dr. Watumull.
