Dr. Mehta is absolutely amazing. He made me feel so comfortable and I knew I was in very capable hands. He was phenomenal. How I chose Dr. Mehta: I set up consultations with multiple plastic surgeons that I found on RealSelf, Yelp, etc. I scheduled free consults before any paid consults. That way, if I found a surgeon I was happy with early on, I wouldn't have to pay any fees. After meeting with a few options, I was stuck between Dr. Mehta and Duet Plastic Surgery. Both were extremely kind and well educated. I was so stuck between the two that I decided the tie breaker would be price. Dr. Mehta ended up being less expensive, and he was willing to get me in for surgery in a very tight time frame. I made the decision and never looked back. He was absolutely fabulous and I have no regrets.

I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Dr. Mehta is polite, easy-going and conveys his expertise and credentials in a friendly and not at all patronizing way. He quickly got back to me via email or phone whenever I needed it and helped me through an easy post-op. He even allowed me to "bend the rules" when it comes to resting: about a week after surgery I ran a half marathon with zero pain, no discomfort and breathing through my nose for the first time in my life. What a great job!

I had a rhinoplasty when I was 20 and it looked OK when the surgeon took off the splint but over the next few weeks it started getting more and more pinched and twisted. I couldn't breathe and was always kinda self-conscious about it. I'm in my 30's now and am planning to get married this summer. I wanted my nose to look good in my wedding photos so I decided it was time to get it fixed! I consulted with 3 different surgeons and really clicked with Dr. Mehta. He showed me what my new nose would look like on his computer and made me feel really comfortable about the whole process.

I couldn't be happier with the treatment I've received from Dr. Mehta (Dysport & filler)! I've had mixed results in the past with these treatments -- Nothing bad per se, but the outcomes usually fell short of my expectations and weren't always "quite right". I’ve seen Dr. Mehta twice now and am thrilled with his approach and technique! His aesthetic sensibility, appreciation for natural subtlety, and expert precision is exactly what I was hoping to find in a new physician. I thought my lips needed a little help, and I have to say that I’ve never seen more natural looking enhanced lips. He did a beautiful job!

My experience with Juvederm XC was great. It has been 8 months after my injection in my lips, and they still look great. I have looked at many online at before and after pictures, and have never seen results like mine. I am VERY satisfied with the results. Overall the procedure was painless and fast. I saw immediate results, but after a few 3-4 days the filler settled, and looked GORGEOUS and most importantly NATURAL .

I narrowed down my search to Dr. Sam Most and Dr. Mehta. I had two consults with Dr. Mehta and while I really, really liked him as well as Jill, his scheduler/office manager, they seemed too good to be true. Seriously. The office is spa-like and Jill is so on the ball, friendly and super competent. Dr. Mehta makes you feel like the only patient in the world. He was personable, available for my endless questions (I ended up going for two consults because I had so many questions!) and from the beginning, listened to my story, never talked down to me and was confident he could fix my issues. I saw Dr. Most for a second opinion which sealed the deal. I was going with Dr. Mehta. Let me also mention that Dr. Mehta partners with Waverly Surgical Center and they were completely amazing as well paying attention to my past issues with MRSA and took into consideration my asthma and allergies. Dr. Coe who did my anesthesia was super fantastic esp. considering I've had complications with anesthesia in the past.

I chose Dr. Mehta based on the fact that he was both covered by insurance and had several glowing Yelp reviews. He answered my many questions, showed concern and care during our initial meeting and clearly was a talented plastic surgeon. I am glad I made the decision to go with him! He really knew what he was doing during my surgery and my post-op pain has been minimal.

I 100% recommend Dr. Mehta! I had my rhinoplasty procedure a few weeks back. From the beginning he made me feel comfortable and knew the outcome would be great. His availability to answer questions: Phone calls or emails are great. He quickly responded to ALL my questions. His staff is also great, in particular Jill. She also helped w/ any questions or concerns i had. Her warm, welcoming and friendly attitude put me at ease. I would definitely recommend Dr. Mehta to anyone!

I sought out Dr. Mehta, who is a Bay Area plastic surgeon in Atherton. His attitude and manner from initial consultation is extremely comforting and accommodating. He is 100% dedicated to exactly the result you are after in the manner you are most comfortable. He offers important information and knowledge about products and procedures and their respective pros and cons. After speaking with him, I trusted him to inject Restylane under my eyes, which every single review will tell you, should only be done by highly skilled, and experienced doctors. I cannot recommend Dr. Mehta highly enough as a skilled, experienced doctor who you can trust for excellent work.
