"Doctor McKay McKinnon has been working on me since I was 18 months old. I have had cosmetic and tumor removal surgery done by McKinnon annually. His insistence on perfection and medical expertise are out of this world.
He is the best Neurofibromatosis specialist we have found. His precision and planning as well as his knowledge of his work makes me feel very comfortable. I refuse to allow another doctor to operate on my face, as he does. He is professional and world-renowned. Simply the best doctor there is for reconstructive surgery."

"Dr. McKinnon is a dedicated professional who is calm, caring and thorough. He has performed surgery on my husband multiple times for a very large AVM and saved his life by doing so. No other doctor would touch my husband as his health issue was so significant. Dr. is dedicated to assuring people's lives are as normal as possible and as other reviews have stated does a significant amount of charity work to help severely disfigured people throughout the world. Look at the press releases and videos online to understand the brilliance and compassion of his work."

"Dr. McKinnon is amazing. He is calm, professional, makes you relax and is a true "southern gentlemen". He donates his spare time to performing hundreds of free surgeries for the poorest people in the world. He and his lovely wife travel to Honduras, Vietnam and many other poor countries and help those in need. Most surgeons go to Florida or perhaps to Hawaii, but not Dr. McKinnon, he goes to 3rd world countries and handles surgeries that many surgeons would walk away from."

"Dr. McKinnon is the best...period. Calm, confident, and professional. He takes his time to talk with you and understand what you are looking to have done. I have had liposuction, a nose job, and a breast augmentation and am pleased with all my outcomes. I had interviewed several cosmetic surgeons prior to finding Dr. McKinnon and found him the most straightforward and unpretentious. The office is nice, small, and quiet so you don't feel like your just a number. Great post op care... you will feel well cared for. So, if your considering cosmetic/reconstructive surgery, go see him...you'll be glad you did!"

"Nice doctor. I came in for some cosmetic surgery and was very happy with the whole experience. He was patient and thorough during the consultation and the results were what I had hoped for. I would definitely recommend him."

Body Procedures Patient Care

 

After Abdominoplasty, the patient will usually stay overnight in the hospital and return home the next day with the help of a friend or family. They may shower the day after surgery and will wear a stretchy wraparound “girdle” to protect the area for several weeks. Drains are removed in 5-14 days, if in place. Heavy exertion and exercise should be avoided for 6-8 weeks if the abdominal muscles have been tightened during the surgery. They may return to light work in 10-14 days.

After liposuction, the patient requires a family member or friend to take them home and spend the evening with them. They need to wear a girdle for 24 hours a day for 7-10 days and then 12 hours a day for a month thereafter. They can remove the girdle and shower anytime. They can return to work in 2-4 days but must avoid heavy exertion for 2-3 weeks. Oozing is expected from the areas of liposuction for approximately 24 hours after surgery. Swelling and black-and-blue is quite obvious for approximately 7-10 days. Sun exposure should be avoided in the areas of liposuction for 2-3 months to avoid the risk of hyperpigmentation (blotchy color to the skin). The final result may not be evident for 6 months.
