I am ecstatic with my mommy makeover results!!! I have had the best experience with Dr. Mehta. He has been wonderful throughout my entire process. He took as much time as I needed explaining everything and answering all of my question. He is very professional and has a great bedside manner. I felt very comfortable with him from our first meeting. His staff is amazing as well. I without a doubt. -Jenni
I urgently needed my eye lids done and chose Dr. Mehta (warm, friendly and meticulous), whom I immensely trusted to do the surgery on my eyes making them look their best. I had minimal recovery with hardly no swelling at all. I could not believe my eyes (no pun intended) They were absolutely the most natural and beautiful work that I could not have imagined. I feel extremely lucky to have chosen Dr. Mehta, who obviously loves what he does, as my surgeon. Even my eye doctor was very impressed and said what a beautiful job he did and how natural looking they were. Now that it has been 9 months, many people think I am 15 years younger looking than my age. If I could give him 5+ stars, I would. – Susan S.
Dr. Mehta was recommended to me for nose reconstruction after Mohs surgery for basal cell carcinoma. To say I was nervous prior to my first appointment with him would be an understatement, but shortly into my initial visit, my family and I had complete peace about his surgical recommendation (forehead flap). He is a wise, expert surgeon who cares tremendously for his patients, and who takes all the time necessary to explain procedures and answer questions. And his staff is kind, encouraging, and efficient (I will always especially appreciate Christie, who was right there with me every step of the way.) Just three-and-a-half months post my initial surgery, the results are already amazing. Many people are not even aware I’ve had two surgeries until I tell them, at which time they look more closely at me and then, nearly without exception, ask who my surgeon is. But honestly, for me, the incredible cosmetic result is just the icing on an already great cake. My family and I will never take for granted having been blessed to have Dr. Mehta as my very gifted, skilled, compassionate surgeon during a difficult time. I recommend Dr. Mehta without reservation.

Dr. Mehta is an amazing doctor. He takes his time to make sure he understands your needs/wants and explains the whole process to you until you are comfortable. Very happy with him! You never have to wait too long in the waiting room and every visit is pleasant. -Jamie M.
I can’t say ENOUGH positive things about Dr. Mehta and his nurse Tracy!!!! I was diagnosed with breast cancer and have been to MANY doctors so far..with a long journey ahead of me. The other doctors/surgeons/specialists are considered to be “best in the business” but have NOT exercised the caring, compassion or willingness to explain, take extra time, elaborate or just let me cry like Dr. Mehta has on EVERY single appointment. I cannot sing his praises loud enough or express my gratitude for having HIM as that ONE physician who cares and is compassionate to ANYTHING I need. I don’t think I could get thru this journey without HIM. -Wendy J.
Dr. Mehta is so caring. I knew my results would be wonderful because he takes his time and does his job right. Although he is busy he always had time to answer my questions so I went into my surgery knowing everything in needed to know. -ghawx
I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. An emotional and scary experience to say the least. Along this journey I have met with and been operated on by multiple surgeons as well as having interactions with other physicians regarding options and treatments. I have been disappointed with the bedside manner and general communications with all EXCEPT Dr. Mehta..in fact I can honestly say he has made my journey bearable , provided hope while being honest, as well as being compassionate and professional in every way. I can’t sing enough praises to this man and the quality of care I continue to receive by both himself and his nurse Tracy. He always answers questions fully..never rushes me thru..and generally just provides “the human factor” which is desperately needed by all in the medical field and especially those who treat patients battling cancer. I wouldn’t hesitate to refer him and know any new patient would come away satisfied and feeling cared for and important as a person..not just a name.
Dr. Mehta is truly a remarkable person who sincerely cares about the people he is treating. I was very fortunate to be referred to him by Dr. Creed Stewart of Texoma Dermatology for the closure procedure after facial surgery for cancer removal. Dr. Mehta did an exceptional job with my highest satisfaction. I would truly recommend him to anyone in need of this procedure. William Plummer, Paris, Texas -William P.
I recently had a hand injury and was referred to Dr. Mehta. From my first visit to my last visit I could not have had a better experience. He took the time to show and explain what was going on with my injury and what my xrays showed. My therapist both Leigh and Mallory were great, did not try to push to hard just hard enough to get results. So from everyone I came in contact with from the ladies that make the appointments to xray tech to the doctor and the therapist I can’t say enough good things. Thank you for everything you did and for a great experience dealing with my injury.
I am truly pleased with my experience with Regional Plastic Surgery. Dr. Mehta is very professional and thorough. I left with a life changing cosmetic procedure. After our first initial consultation I was confident that I found the right surgeon for my rhinoplasty. I am truly greatful to have met him and his team. – Alysa C.
