5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

A Breath of Fresh Air - Walnut Creek, CA

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

Mini Facelift, an Excellent Choice for Me. -Walnut Creek, CA

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.

Breast Implants - Walnut Creek, CA

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!

2 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Removal

Removed implants that were bigger than told! Feel betrayed, but couldn't be happier to be free :)

I researched online, and found him through the 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.
