Dr. Thornton was my first and only consultation. After years of up-and-down weight gain-and-loss AND two pregnancies with breastfeeding, my breasts were . . . well . . . saggy. I had been self-conscious about them since high school, and after a co-worker’s wife had breast augmentation, he recommended I go see Dr. Thornton. From the first meeting, my husband and I were very impressed by Dr. Thornton’s genuineness and professionalism. I decided on a breast lift rather than augmentation, for personal reasons, and had full support during the whole process (no pun intended). I also maintained my original breast size, which was of utter importance (again, no pun intended). Dr. Thornton is a perfectionist, which is key when dealing with any type of body issue. My recovery time was minimal, and I knew I had a great team with me every step of the way. If you are considering any type of cosmetic surgery, go see Dr. T and the Women. I promise you won’t be disappointed . . . better yet, it will be one of the best decisions of your life.


Dr. Thornton changed my life. I am a single mother of 3 and worked out very hard to lose weight. Little did I know my breast would be the first to go. I met with Dr. Thornton for a breast augmentation and he made me brand new! He knew which procedure would be best for my body and my lifestyle. His suggestions were exactly what I needed done and I am beyond satisfied! I constantly get compliments and love looking at my body in the mirror again! Dr. Thornton made this possible for me, he’s the best!


Thanks to Dr.Thornton and Staff.. I am really happy with the decision that I made to enhance my look. They all made me feel very comfortable. Dr. Thornton was very open and honest about the sizes to choose from. I love my results and have already told friends about his service. I will recommend him to anyone!


After decades of up/down weight gain/loss and prior surgeries, Dr. T was presented with my mess that included my front/back and both sides. We had 3 pre-op appointments to decide on options. My fault. I thought I would do surgeries in stages, but by the third appointment I was confident enough to give him the go ahead to get it all done at once. During pre-op at the surgical center, he spent at least 20 minutes concentrating on marking me, sometimes erasing to try another option. He was focused on getting the best outcome. I didn’t expect such a (dramatically) positive outcome. I wanted my old body back, and he gave me an improved version. Rather than loose tops I now look for form-fitting clothes that show off my new curves. I’m still in shock that this level of “fix” was possible. I can’t recommend him highly enough.


To Dr. Thornton, Tina, and Staff:  Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate how well I’ve been taken care of!  You’ve all been so helpful, understanding, and compassionate!  And I love the results of my surgeries!!!


Dr. Thornton, Thank you for being such a blessing to me.  I am so glad I made the best choice concerning plastic surgeons.  You and your staff exceeded my expectations beyond my imagination.  I can’t stop looking at myself and sometimes it’s hard to believe the reflection in the mirror!!  I can’t stop smiling.”


After years of dreaming of getting a breast augmentation my dreams were put into reality after meeting Dr. Thornton. I met Dr. Thornton when my sister had a brazilian butt lift. My sister met with numerous doctors but only felt comfortable with Dr. Thornton. After seeing how he and his staff handled my sisters surgery I knew that I wanted to have my surgery done with him. The whole process was incredibly easy. From beginning to end. Dr. Thornton made me feel extremely comfortable and answered every question I had. His staff is amazing! Nervous about my surgery, I came out smiling. I would not change a thing!!! I do not hesitate when I am asked who did my surgery! I would recommend Dr. T to anybody considering plastic surgery.


After loosing 100 lb and giving birth to 5 children; my body didn’t exactly look like the image that was in my mind. So my husband suggested to me that I see a specialist about removing the excess skin that was left lying around. I found Dr. Thornton through the internet. I had my initial consultation the beginning of May 2011. Michael Thornton was up front, and professional about the entire process. I could tell that he really enjoys the medical field that he chose to make his living. He takes his work seriously and puts every effort possible to give clients exactly what they are hoping for. I had my first of possible three surgical procedures done at the end of May 2011. I had a thigh lift & brest lift. My brest went from the size of a “DD” to the size of a “B”. My thighs now look like normal, everyday legs. Six weeks after being happy with the results of my first surgery. I proceeded to have an invasive tummy tuck along with removing the bra fat. It is has been only three weeks since my last procedure and I wouldn’t change a thing. Dr. Thornton has done an amazing job nip tucking my body into the image that I have had in my head. When I look into the mirror now…I no longer frown, but smile that is bigger then Texas! To top everything off his staff is extremely friendly, compassionate about their job & clients (just as he is). I have already recommended Dr. Thornton to friends and I would recommend him to you as well.


Kind, talented, professional, passionate. I can go on about Dr. Thornton and the staff at Mansfield Cosmetic! It’s been almost two years since my procedure and I am still as happy as the day I had it done. Thank you again, Dr. Thornton!


Dr. Thorton is the BEST!!! I went to him as I was turning 48 and trying to figure out how to maintain some of my youth. He did a free consultation and advise me of some of my choices. I decided on breast augmentation. The office staff was amazing. The surgery center staff was awesome. From IV’s to follow up, I cannot find anything but positive to say about my experience. Since then, I went back for fat transfer to my face. The experience on that was just as great…AND I WILL BE BACK…I will go back to him later this year for a C2 Laser treatment as I trust Dr. Thorton! He is knowledgeable and professional. He gives an honest answer and not the answer to just sale you on a surgery. I even ask him about a face lift and he told me I did not have enough to do. I trust him and his expertise in this field!!! I refer all my friends to him. I highly recommend Dr. Thorton.


I had a photo shoot the other day and when I saw this picture it became very obvious to me that the laser treatment  you had performed had taken at least 10 years off my eyes. I wanted to thank you for your part in making that happen. You are a gifted and compassionate surgeon and I appreciate all you have done for me.  Thank you again for all that you are and what you bring to this world.


When looking for a doctor to perform my breast augmentation I went searching high and low. I actually went to 7 consultations. I was ready to give up when I found Dr. Thornton and Mansfield cosmetic surgery center. From the moment I walked in the door I knew I had found my doctor. His office staff is amazing and my procedure went smoothly. Now almost a year later I am elated with the results. He gave me the look that I wanted but didn’t know how to ask for. he has recently started doing injectables (botox) on me and the results are equally flawless. I have recommended him to many friends and clients. He is an exceptional physician with an amazing support staff.


Couldn’t have asked for a more perfect experience! Dr. Thornton and his staff are just simply amazing! It’s been 6 months and I’m still amazed that I now have breasts that fit my body type! Not enough words in the world to praise Mansfield Cosmetic a Surgery Center! Thank you thank you!


After experienced a bad procedure that changed my life in the worst possible way with another doctor I realized it’s not always as simple as I thought. That’s what happened to me. Scared and confused, I went to see Dr. Michael Thornton to help me find out how I could fix the other doctor mistake. That was the greatest thing that could have ever happened to me! Dr. Michael Thornton and his staff became a very special part of my life. They were there for me through every step of my journey. I have always felt that I could call anytime of the day and ask any questions I had. Nurse Tina was always so friendly and Jamie always was able to get me an appointment, working around my schedule. They are amazing and always so helpful with the financial end of the process. Dr. Thornton words cannot express how grateful I am for everything that you and your staff have done for me, and most importantly for making me love myself again. The happiness I now feel far surpasses any pain or struggle I had to endure. I have highly recommended them to many people I know. You are not alone. Know that you are in the best hands and hearts possible to help you make your dreams come true. Hope is the one thing you do have when you are in this situation. Never give up hope. “I believe in miracles and I believe in Dr. Michael Thornton and his wonderful staff.” Tracy Burton


BEST cosmetic surgeon in DFW area!! After spending 10 years thinking about cosmetic surgery when I decided it was time to actually have the surgery, I spent several months researching the available surgeons. Living in the DFW Metroplex area afforded me a large number of choices so I decided that I would not settle for a good cosmetic surgeon – I wanted to have THE BEST cosmetic surgeon. My research led me to Dr. Thornton and I am thrilled about my results! I would absolutely recommend Dr. Thornton as THE BEST cosmetic surgeon to anyone considering surgery. His facility is absolutely beautiful and he and his staff are true professionals. As expected, they provided excellent care from the very first phone call, to the consultation and each step of the way. They made me feel very comfortable in what could have been an uncomfortable setting and they always made me feel welcome They took the time to answer all my questions so that I was fully informed about what to expect before, during and after my procedure. Dr. Thornton also took the time to truly “listen” to me about what I wanted and my expectations. My results are even better than I imagined! He is an artist and I am so thankful that I took the time to research and find THE BEST cosmetic surgeon. Thank you Dr.Thornton & staff – thank you!


To Dr. Michael Thornton and the fabulous ladies who run the Mansfield Cosmetic Surgery Center:  “With warm appreciation for all you’ve given of your time, your energy, and yourself.”  Thank you for working very hard to make my surgery a reality.


I would recommend Dr. Thornton and his staff to anyone. His care before and after surgery was phenomenal. Both Dr. Thornton’s office and the affiliated hospital called me the day of and the day after my surgery to check on me. Dr. Thornton is not only a perfectionist and meticulous, but he has excellent bedside manners. Do not let his age fool you; he is young, but extremely qualified.
