Are you a patient of Joseph Mele, MD?
5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision
Show More I rate Dr. Mele and his office 5 stars because they deserve it. I researched many Doctors in the Bay Area and L.A., i had consultations with 5 differenent Doctors and got 5 different answers. I was confused to say the least. My knew my revision was not a walk in the park. I found Dr. Mele to be very kind and he took the time to explain things to me. I did not feel like a number. He gave me suggestions ( not just one), and never said , This is how its going to be done, or not at all. Like some of the others did. I feel like he really gave some thought to my situation. I am very happy with the outcome and i think he did a spectacular job. The pros of my experience with Dr. Mele and his office is positive. He is very nice and caring. A really good man. Also, his office staff is superb.
5 out of 5 stars Mini Lift
Show More Recommended by a friend. I interviewed several surgeons, but found Dr. Mele to be the best for several reasons. Dr. Mele listens, really listens. He pays careful attention to what you say as well as what you don't say. He discusses the procedure's pros and cons with you, taking whatever time needed to make sure there is clarity in the decision one makes. He does not use a general one size fits all approach, rather he celebrates our uniqueness and strives to satisfy individual goals. Dr. Mele pays careful attention to detail and above all, he is an excellent surgeon. I have had several post operation checks as a part of a year long follow up. Dr. Mele's staff is caring, compassionate and understanding. My mini facelift is such a boost to my self-esteem. When I look in the mirror, I recognize myself. I highly recommend Dr. Mele.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
Show More Dr. Mele was referred to me by another patient of his. I am so thankful! After my consultation I knew he was the right surgeon for me! This is my second surgery with Dr. Mele. I love the results that I have seen so far after surgery. It is exactly what I wanted and couldn’t ask for more. Dr. Mele and his staff rise beyond professionalism. They are courteous, attentive and thorough in the explanation and details needed to allow me to make the proper decisions. I highly recommend Dr. Mele!
5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants
32 Years Old, 5'2, and 170 Lbs. Getting a Breast Lift with Silicone Implants, and Lipo to my Armpit and Back. Walnut Creek, CA
Show More From the moment Dr. Mele walked into his waiting room to greet me for my consultation I was put at ease by his wonderful personality. I was rather surprised at how easy it was to talk to him. He was a great listener, and addressed all of my questions and concerns thoroughly. I never felt rushed as he let me take my time. By the end of my consultation we were sharing stories and some good humor. Dr. Mele is the 9th plastic surgeon I have met with and I am confident to have him work on me. He is professional, realistic, accredited, and experienced with difficult cases like mine. I booked my surgery appointment as soon as I got home. However a week or so after I started to panic a bit over my implant size (I had boob greed and wanted to go really large) and called his office. His staff catered to my concerns and told me they would leave a message for Dr. Mele since he was in surgery. I thanked them and had planned to send him an email. Within a couple hours I received a phone call from Dr. Mele and he was just so pleasant. He scheduled another appointment for me to come to his office so we could talk again face to face to make sure I was comfortable with proceeding. I met with him on June 1 and I am so excited to get my work done. I will post before photos soon. My pre op is on June 8th.

Show More I researched online, and found him through the justbreastimplants.com and admired that he took the time to answer peoples' questions on the forum. He does truly care, and I felt very comfortable with him doing the surgery and again am so grateful he fit me in. The only reason why I've given him the rating I have is because I know we had agreed to do it under local, and I signed a paper about it earlier and he forgot. When I asked him about it, he asked me why I hadn't said anything- because I trusted it would've been done the way we agreed, and he put me entirely under without my consent so I wasn't even conscious to have said anything? It felt hurt to be blamed for this, however he was nice enough to call me that next day after surgery. I really think it was just a very unfortunate mistake, but I know that I had definitely communicated to him and signed a form for it to be done under local. I'm not looking to take anything up with him as I'm just glad they're out, I would just like an apology and not to be told that I was responsible for not speaking up when I was physically unable to. **And now because I was put under against my will, they chipped my teeth in the process.
