Are you a patient of Abraham Marcadis, MD?
5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision
Show More He has done other work for me. Everything I have ever asked he has been able to accomplish. He and his staff do not promise miracles. They provide you with honest possibilities. There is never any pressure...only support and knowledgeable expertise.

I'm not really ready to recommend him or not. We'll see how it turns out.

Dr. Marcadis did an excellent job on my tummy tuck and implants. I had a very easy recovery, no complications, no drains and my scars are minimal. But he doesn't really talk that much to you. He has his idea of what to do and goes with that, not very good at explaining or listening. Example- I wanted my tummy scar very low as I have a short waist. And I even said to him to see where my underwear goes and if he needed to do a small vertical scar to get the incision lower, that was ok. But he didn't feel it was needed. My scar is visible in low rise jeans and most bikinis. Also, after a breast biopsy, I had hardening in one implant and felt that the other one fell too much. But when I went to see him, he didn't see the problem. I'm going to be having a breast revision in a few months and I won't go back to Dr. Marcadis simply because I want a doctor who listens more to what I want, not just what he thinks is best.

Show More Dr Abe was recommended by friends and other doctors. He was knowledgeable and he and staff treated me like family. Very happy and will post pics next week. Can't wait for 4 and 8 weeks post to see more results. I felt less stomach immediately first time I sat down! Even before I could see anything. I had no drains due to a "quilting" type of stitching. Dr Abe prescribes antibiotics and NSAID pain reliever. NSAIDs are better than narcotics so you have less nausea first couple days. Must haves for recovery: 24 hour care first day to get to bathroom and for food, etc, recliner, pillows, gatorade and water on table within reach, crackers for nausea, remotes, phones, tablets within reach, care for small children for one to two weeks, blanket to line recliner for seepage, lots of big comfy clothes for sensitive stomach - elastic hurts. Can't say enough how great Dr Abe was and I was not worried at all about the procedure. I worried about pain after but slept it off. After a couple days it was easier to get around on my own. First shower was amazing. Had tons of bruising from lipo and I'm fair skinned. Almost 3 weeks later, I still have some bruising. Worst part is it's hard to stand up straight for 10 days. You want to, but you just can't physically.

Show More dr. marcadis was amazing. i've never had any type of surgery done before and he made me feel at ease. he talked to me thoroughly about the procedure and what to expect before and after surgery. he educated me on my procudeure up until the day of. i was very unsure of the size i wanted, but he knew what would look natural and not too big for my frame. i think the most important part was that the doctor was there by your side and when you had an appointment you always saw him. to me this was key on how he cares and respect you as a patient

Show More I lovvvvve my results with Dr. Marcadis. I went in for a breast reduction and lift , and a full tummy tuck with lipo to flanks and arms (where that fat hangs out of your tank too). I was worried based on other reviews that said he was arrogant but I find him to be absolutely nothing but caring, concerned, knowledgeable and sweet. There is a fine line between cocky and confident. He is just very confident and knows his stuff. He will tell you the truth, even if you don't like it. When I called him post surgery bc I was scared of an issue he returned my weekend called promptly, followed up a second time via email on a Sunday and then saw me without delay the next day. He does expect a lot from his patient as far as bucking up and getting back on the saddle... Which I think everyone heals different. But he does it in a caring dad way.... Too bad I don't listen to my dad! Haha. My tummy is beautiful now , I think! It's better than it was even before babies! And what he did to minimize my K cup breasts into beautiful DD cup breasts is amazing. I love my new size and shape. I highly recommend him. He is not big on pain meds and doesn't seem big on holistic either... He says the body needs none of these and will heal itself. So if pain meds are a top priority for you, i would look else where. But if you want a beautiful shape and talent, caring doctor , Dr. Marcadis is wonderful in my opinion. I interviewed 6 doctors total and felt best with him.
