There is not just ONE word to describe how Dr. Hodnett has made me feel since doing my surgery....there are many!!!! I feel way more confident in myself and I have always struggled with low self esteem but I can honestly say that dr.hodnett has cured that for me! He did a rhinoplasty as well as a breast augmentation and I can now wear bathing suit tops that I never could wear before and it feels great! I love my nose and you can't even tell it was done! Everyone says it looks so natural! That's the best about dr.hodnett...he makes everything look natural so you don't have to worry about anyone asking if you have every had plastic surgery. I wish I would have done this earlier but I am so blessed and happy that I finally did! Thank you so much Dr.Hodnett!!! You are amazing at what you do!!
Best surgery ever.. No pain.. Dr. Hodnett Rocks!!!!
Very happy with my new breasts. Made them smaller and Dr. Hodnett made them beautiful and I Am very happy with my results. I would recommend him 100%.
Fantastic bedside manner, very informative. I was worried about my breast and he followed up multiple times to ensure everything was ok. Even after having a breast ultrasound, he had me come in to ease my nerves and diminish my worries! Nothing was wrong with my breast! I'm just over reactive. Best surgeon in the area. 100% recommended!
After 8 years, I am still super happy with Dr. Hodnett's job. The feelings in my boob remain the same they have always been. They feel totally natural. I was recommended through a friend and many friends have used him as well. He is the only doc I would ever go to. Hoping he doesn't retire anytime soon! I love my breasts!!
I chose Dr Hodnett for my lift and augmentation because at my consultation he was quick and straight to the point. He didn't try to sell me up. I had an idea of what I needed and he confirmed. Dr Hodnett and his staff made me feel like family from the minute I came in. On the day of surgery I was terrified and him and my nurse could not have made me any more comfortable. I am 6 weeks post op and love the new improved me. I get lots of compliments and feel very good. My breasts look great, they are healing amazing. I have anxiety and the dr and his staff have been incredible and patient with me. Answering every question and seeing me anytime i feel the need to come in. I'm so glad I trusted my gut and chose Dr Hodnett for my surgery. Referring him to any and everybody!!
Excellent , he has been doing many different procedures to at least 8 people from my family like Brest Augmentation, my mother had a Co2 Laser and looks 10 years younger, my sister had a tummy tuck and looks amazing. Dr. Hodnett has a lot of experience and that's one of the reasons we choose him and trusted him.
I am so happy that I finally decided to do this! I have always been self conscious of my nose. No pain, no bruising, the recovery was quick, I am so happy! Thank you Dr. Hodnett!
I have had several previous surgeries by other doctors. Dr. Hodnett by far is superior in my results!! I would highly recommend him!!!
Great experience! Super content with my breast!
Unbelievable results!! My husband and I both came in and got Facetite and bodytite. We are 3 weeks post-op and we already see the amazing results. I look 10 years younger and I finally have a flat stomach!! My husband went back into work and all his coworkers said he keeps looking younger. They have no idea he had Facetite. His stomach is at least half its original size. Everyone here at this office is kind and professional. We've had an excellent experience. I highly recommend Dr. Hodnett. He is very patient and takes the time to explain everything thoroughly.
I had my tummy tuck in 2012 with Dr. Hodnett my experience with that surgery was simply amazing I truly recommend him and his team. I recently had breast reduction and lift I had bra line removed and the skin under arm removed best choice ever again Dr. Hodnett is the best his team also are very caring I once again recommend Dr. Hodnett his expertise and experience in plastic surgery is astounding.

Dr. Hodnett was great at addressing all my concerns. I was getting my breast augmentation redone after 10 years, upgrading from saline to silicone. He was extremely knowledgable and made me feel very comfortable during the process. My scars are not noticeable and the final result came out great. Thanks!
i have had two procedures done with Dr Hodnett and I am very happy with the results I would highly recommend Dr Hodnett to my friends and family.
I waited many many years to get otoplasty done. After much research over the years, I decided to go with Dr. Hodnett. He knows what he is doing and I am satisfied with my results. One of my ears started to come out again and he quickly revised it. I love his staff. They are very warm and welcoming. They even looked for my earring I dropped in the bathroom and kept it safe for me until my next appointment. I am glad I went with Dr. Hodnett for my procedure.
Dr. hodnett is the best plastic surgon. Why, he made me look like a swim suit model when I was imbaress to take my shirt off even in a doctor's office. I highly recommend dr. hodnett for his expertise, bed side manner, and post surgery care. I give him 12 out of 10!! He is simply The best....

He is a magical worker! He is absolutleyawsome. I highly recommend Dr. hodnett to anyone considering any plastic surgery. He is a super surgen!
Fue una buena experiencia al principio un poco neviosa ahora estoy tranquila y contenta como mejoro mi apariencia gracias Dr Hodnett y a su personal
Got my boobs done by dr Hodnett and I love them you can't see the scars they look so natural 5 star job
I went to see three different plastic surgeons to discuss removing my large breast implants I had for over twelve years and discuss a lift. Two of those surgeons insisted I would need to replace the implants with a smaller implant. I came to see Dr. Hodnett who was honest, and professional. He evaluated me and said he was confident he could remove the implants and do a lift without needing to replace the implants. He was the only surgeon who was honest and wasn't trying to up sell me. I had the breast reduction and lift done without replacing implants and my breasts look amazing. He was able to achieve exactly what I was looking for. He's truly an expert and I highly recommend him. I'm so happy I'm coming back to see him next month to do both the face tight and body tight procedure.
By far best experience I've ever had. This man is pure gold!! He's brought back my self confidence. Such a caring and supportive staff.

Couldn't be happier with the Staff at BHP!! For as insecure an unsure as I was initially , the staff really made sure my decision to get my BA & lift was what i really wanted!! From start to finish, I was able to ask Any and all questions I could think of and Dr Hodnett was very honest with every concern I had. He chose the Breast size that fit my body, I was totally fine with that! Martha in Finance made "the hardest part" painless. Explained all my options clearly. I would highly recommend BHP & Dr Hodnett to anyone who is seriously ready to make that life changing decsion!! I'm so glad I did!!
Dr. Hodnett helped me every step of the way through my surgery. He really cared about my concerns and he spend a lot of time with me working out a plan and the best options. He is so kind and I felt like he really did his best on everything.

Contra con el trato tan to de doctor y personal
Dr. Hodnett did my augmentation 11 years ago, today I came in for a consultation/follow up as recommended. He did such a great job, I remember when the procedure was over I was excited to see myself with breasts! The incision wasn't noticeable and it's still not 11 years later. Well here I am happy to share, they're perfect, no need to get them redone. I highly recommend this Dr. I left a happy customer and 11 years later I walk area just as happy! Thank you Dr Hodnett, you're the BEST!!! Carol C

Thank you so much for my new girls, surgery was fast and I felt no pain. Amazing Doctor, always there to answer my questions. I love his work. I love my new girls.
I had a breast lift with silicone implants, Dr Hodnett and his staff are amazing. They always made me feel comfortable and took great care of me. I am 6weeks post op, and so far very happy with my results!
I recently had a breast reduction and lift with nipple reduction and implants. Dr. Hodnett was extremely knowledgeable about what he was doing. He took his time with me and explained all my options in detail. I literally left my surgery in his hands and to his best abilities and they came out wonderful. I couldn't be more happy. The staff was wonderful too!
Dr. Hodnett was highly recommended to me my aunt and also by a friend. They both had work done by him and were very happy with his work. With that said I was sure he would be the right doctor for my Breast Lift and Augmentation. Dr. Hodnett is very professional and honest. He answered any questions and concerns I had. He has years of experience and knew what would fit my body best. Both the office and OR team were very sweet and helpful as well. I also had Juvaderm lip injections done by Dr. Hodnett-- it was quick and painless. I highly recommend Dr Hodnett!
I am satisfied with my results and the doctor always listened to my concerns and answered my questions. The staff are extremely nice, caring, and helpful. Dr. Hodnett knows his stuff and I trust him, but he is not always the most welcoming. Overall, I had a good experience and would recommend him if you can look past him not being the most cheerful doctor.
I am so satisfied with my breast augmentation and love the overall outcome of my breast and lips. Dr Hodnett is an amazing doctor and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to get a procedure.
Dr. Hodnett was amazing, he looked at my surgery through my eyes and made it personal to me. He looked at the entire process from start to finish and made recommendations for me to consider without feeling as if he was the beneficiary but I was. The staff was extremely supportive and friendly, never felt rushed and always willing to answer additional questions. Results are still early but I am super pleased so far with results. Thank you!!!
Very happy with Dr. Hodnetts work. I feel like a new person! Would recommend him to anyone!
