Comments from our Dallas plastic surgeon, Dr. Harlan Pollock:
“In over forty years of surgical practice, I have continuously enjoyed a specialty that demands technical precision, surgical judgment, and an understanding of psychology while rewarding a sense of creativity.”
At North Dallas Plastic Surgery, our practice has always been scientifically based and has added new technology and techniques only after these methods have been proven to be both safe and effective for our patients.

It is both Dr. Harlan Pollock and Dr. Todd A. Pollock’s wishes to educate their current and perspective patients. For example, unlike almost all other plastic surgery websites here you will not find “Before & After Photographs” online. (Learn more about this, here: Before and After Pictures: Seeing is believing… or is it? »)
Together, they have created a series of online information they call Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery: Promise and Pitfalls – Consumer Information ». Take a look at it – you might be surprised at their opinions on some popular plastic surgery treatments!
Although a flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us strive for by exercising and weight control, sometimes these methods alone cannot achieve our goals. At North Dallas Plastic Surgery, patients are evaluated and a variety of procedures are considered to meet an individual’s needs.
Our abdominoplasty approach is unique. Our doctors created the Progressive Tension Suture (PTS) technique to allow for secure healing and prevent fluid accumulation without the use of drains. It also allows for a faster return to both an upright posture and to normal activities.

It describes how, when considering a patient for body contouring, we assess three aspects: Skin, Fat and Muscle. There are also more links for more specific information concerning -

The position of the eye brows affects the appearance of the entire face, but most importantly it changes the appearance of the eyes. The brow lift is a surgical method to elevate the eyebrows so they are in an attractive and youthful position. This reduces forehead wrinkles, eliminates excessive upper eyelid skin, and brightens the appearance of the eyes.

Pregnancy changes in the abdomen and breasts are natural changes, that are common to many women. Though there are many and varied suggestions for prevention of stretch marks, loose skin, and such, none of these preventative measures are effective.
Therefore, the most common combination of procedures characterized as “Mommy Makeover” are breast surgery and abdominoplasty (tummy tuck).
At North Dallas Plastic Surgery, Dr. Harlan Pollock and Dr. Todd A. Pollock believe patients should consider many factors in the decision about surgery, but in reality surgery is usually the only means of reversing these changes.

Dr. Harlan Pollock and Dr. Todd A. Pollock originated a technique that allows a plastic surgeon to accurately shape and securely fix the brows, eliminate frown lines, and minimize forehead wrinkles. This brow lift (or forehead lift as it’s sometimes called) technique has provided a more consistent, natural and long-lasting result for our patients here in the Dallas and Allen, TX, area.
This is an example of our progressive tension suture (PTS) technique to anchor and advance the skin of the forehead. The PTS technique minimizes recovery, eliminates the need for drains, and yet it also enhances the final result.

Dallas abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) benefits both the patient and the surgeon when using Progressive Tension Sutures (PTS) technique
We are pleased to announce the publication of one of the largest, single practice series of abdominoplasties (tummy tucks) with the use of Progressive Tension Sutures (PTS). PTS was originated by Drs. Pollock and first described and published in 2000. This new article proves the ease, safety and effectiveness of this procedure which eliminates postoperative drains, bent posture, and complications. PTS procedure benefits patients and surgeons:
- Marked reduction in the incidence of complications – fluid collections, wound healing problems, blood clots, etc.
- Improved cosmetic results, quality of scars, natural appearance of the navel, etc.
- Much easier recovery for the patient: NO drains to deal with: early resumption of upright posture – immediately; elimination of complications, etc.
The article is titled: “Progressive Tension Sutures in Abdominoplasty: A Review of 597 Consecutive Cases” and is written by Drs. Todd A. Pollock and Harlan Pollock. It was published in Aesthetic Surgery Journal on 29 June 2012. Read the abstract to this article.
Today, and recently, our thoughts continue to turn toward the armed service members. Today is the 70th anniversary of the attack at Pearl Harbor. This day comes a few weeks after Veteran’s Day and Thanksgiving Day and just weeks before the holidays come, too.
North Dallas Plastic Surgery is very proud of our own Doctor Harlan Pollock who served during the Vietnam War. An article was published about the plastic surgery services then Major Pollock provided over 30 years ago during that war: you can read it on our website. Dr. Pollock was in the Vietnam War from 1967-1971 and retired as a Lieutenant Colonel, US Army, with a Bronze Star.
We encourage you to remember our armed service members who are away from their families during the holidays. As the end of the year approaches, many people are considering to which charities they will donate. We hope that you will join us: make a donation to the USO (the United Service Organizations, Inc.) as they continue to support the troops and their families.
