look so natural - Best Plastic Surgeon Ever - Newport Beach, CA

Dr. Elam had been referred to me by a friend who had procedures also performed by him. Dr. Elam and his staff were just amazing and very professional throughout the whole process. I have been going to Dr. Elam for fifteen years. Dr. Elam did my rhinoplasty, liposuction and breast augmentation many years ago and then I had a facelift by Dr. Elam about four years ago. All of my surgeries look so natural and I get compliments on my nose all the time. Dr. Elam and his staff are so friendly and I had the utmost respect for his reputation. From what I heard from word of mouth everyone was right Dr. Elam is the BEST! My facelift looks so natural and it took ten years off of my appearance. Dr. Elam has the best bedside manner and the whole experience from pre-op to post-op could not have been easier. His staff is amazing and I have referred several friends to him who have all thanked me because they are so happy. I highly recommend Dr. Elam to anyone who is seeking an expert in the field.

I Maybe a Daddy's Girl, but It Doesn't Mean I Need my Daddy's Nose - Newport Beach, CA

So far a great consultation. Will add more when I go for pre - op and surgery! Pre- Op was great. Got all the information I needed and a cooler of recovery goodies. Was clear with Dr. Elam. He's the real deal. Got a big hug from the staff. 2 weeks to go! Will add more after surgery. Got to surgery early. Nurses and staff again were awesome. Dr. Elam was excited to work on my nose!! As was I to go through with it. Surgery went smoothly and came back the following day to take the packing out. Dr Elam really cares about your well being. He asked that I come back for another day before he removes the cast so he can clean it up for me. Overall, feel very supported and comfortable knowing I will get the best result. 3 months since my surgery and I have a great natural result. Best decision I made was going with Dr. Elam. He gave me the nose I should have been born with!

44 Year Old Not Ready for Jowls or Bags! - Newport Beach, CA

A 5 Star Rating Isn't high enough for Dr. Elam and his staff! Before I started the interviewing process, I did my research and resigned myself to needing a lower face lift to stop the jowls forming around my lower face. It seemed like this was the only option despite the fact that I am only in my 40's. Dr. Elam was the first doc I interviewed (out of six!) He told me I had good skin and didn't need a face lift yet but could accomplish the same results with facial liposuction, buccal far removal, and a chin implant. He also said a brow lift and lower blepharoplasty would also restore youthfulness to my upper face so everything could look harmoniously youthful. I was thrilled to hear I didn't need a face lift but also a little scared about the other procedures recommended. For example, I thought my baby fat helped me look youthful. Was the buccal fat removal really a good idea? And what about the brow lift? The thing is Dr. Elam is an artist as well as a perfectionist and wanted to maximize my potential. How can I make her look like the very best version of herself and never look like she's had work done? The bottom line is I interviewed five other docs and all of them said I would need a face lift to get the results I wanted as well as some skin resurfacing. Really? That was a lie! What I really needed was Dr. Elam! I am BEYOND THRILLED WITH MY RESULTS! I hope the photos I've included do Dr. Elam's work justice! Also, Dr. Elam's entire staff is AWESOME! I believe they treat each patient like a VIP! Superbly kind, compassionate, patient, AND professional. Every time I was anxious or nervous Lupe, Jody, and Kari were there to do whatever necessary to make me comfortable. Seriously- don't waste your time or money with anyone else! I already told Dr. Elam he is forbidden to retire!

Terrified in Tennessee - Newport Beach, CA

I have no complaints at all! Dr. Elam washed away all my fears by listening and taking his time to explain the procedure and to hear what I wanted and why.
