5 out of 5 stars Arm Lift
This was my second set of procedures with Dr. Desai and I am just as thrilled with my results as I was the first time. Dr. Desai is not only an exceptionally talented surgeon, but extremely patient-centered with excellent bedside manner. I was very specific about where I wanted the placement of my brachioplasty scar, which was not in the traditional location. I drew a line on my arm with a sharpie, sent multiple pictures, and reiterated a few dozen times the importance of getting the scar in exactly the right position so that it can’t be seen from the front or from the back. The scar had to be perfect- a few millimeters in the wrong direction and it would have been more visible than I wanted. I woke up from surgery and my arms were not only beautifully contoured but the scar is exactly where I asked it to be placed with a very thin, quickly fading scar line, that I imagine will be barely visible in a year or so. As was the case with the first surgery I had, there was virtually no pain involved in the recovery process and follow-up care was fantastic. Outside of being an awesome surgeon, Dr. Desai also has a truly wonderful staff that have been consistently professional, polite, and helpful beyond expectations. I highly recommend this surgeon and office not just because the results are phenomenal, but because I could not ask for a more respectful, more attentive, or more competent group of people to work with during this process.

I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Desai and his staff. Every step of the procedure (consultation, anxiety over choosing a size, a plethora of questions emailed to his patient coordinator, the surgery and staff at the surgical center, and the recovery) my expectations for Dr. Desai have been exceeded. I have been impressed with every step! I went to two other consultations and even though I am sure they are wonderful doctors also, I feel so confident I chose the right Dr. for me.

Dr. Desai is an excellent surgeon who produces beautiful results. As of writing this review, I am one week post-op from a tummy tuck, breast lift and augmentation, and lipo in multiple areas, and I spent my entire day doing almost everything I would do on a normal day. The surgery itself seems to have been flawless and the recovery process thus far has been amazing. Dr. Desai was very patient with me during the decision-making process, extremely knowledgeable about every question I asked, and is above and beyond anything I could have hoped for in a plastic surgeon. I never once felt rushed, all of my emails and other inquiries prior to and after surgery were addressed very quickly, and for the first time in my life I can look in a mirror, wearing a bikini, and smile…because I look awesome. I would absolutely recommend his practice to anyone who is looking for a physician who not only has an impressive educational background and an excellent surgical skill set, but also happens to be, by all accounts, a sincerely nice person who is genuinely interested in the care and well-being of his patients.

Dr. Desai and his office staff are very friendly and professional. I would recommend Dr. Desai to anyone looking for plastic surgery. He makes you feel comfortable, at ease and confident in his skills. Always ready to answer any questions you may have. Listening to patients in his waiting room, it is a pleasure to hear how he has helped so many women overcome the effects of breast cancer and get their lives back. Very caring and empathetic human being. I feel he is truly gifted in his surgical skills and has found his calling.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction
Dr. Desai was the last doctor in my year and a half search for someone who could repair a bilateral reconstructioin that I had 8 years ago due to breast cancer. I feel very fortunate to have found him (actually was referred by another PS, Dr. Sternberg, who I was also referred to by my first PS Dr. Glasser), who a month before my TRAM procedure with him; we both decided it just wasn't the best procedure for me. I've been told I was not a good candidate for any of these types of procedures due to a 10 year old vertical incision on my abdomin from another procedure. Dr. Sternberg (TruYou "also Awesome") referred me to Dr. Desai when I mentioned what I really wanted was DIEP but wasn't aware of any surgeons in the area that performed it. Dr. Desai saw me within the hour and spent loads of time with me answering my questions and allowing me to direct the route in which I wanted to go with this whole thing. I am 4 months DIEP post op and 7 days nipple recontruction/fat transfer/lipo post op and am tickled with the whole experience. Terrific bedside manner, easy to talk to and awesome staff. I couldn't have asked for a better ending to my search... well worth the 8+ years of patiently waiting for someone to fix my capsule contracture and give me a body that I can feel good about. I know many women who have traveled to NOLA in to have this procedure done. Dr. Ankit Desai is the real deal.
