He is convenient to Walla Walla area for consult, pre-op, and post-op visits. He is skilled and everything his patients say. I researched him for both skill level and bedside manners and selected him when he gave me a personal response to an email plastic surgery question prior to consult.

Dr. S is nothing less than professional, trustworthy, and personal. When I first went to Dr. S's office, I immediatley felt comfortable. His staff was very friendly and made me feel welcome. Dr. S listened to all of my concerns. He treated me like an individual and with a great amount of respect. I feel confident reccomending Dr. S to anyone!

Dr. S made a huge life changing experience wonderful for me. Connected with my beautiful new breast, inner and outer thigh liposculpture and a brazilian butt lift I will forever have a peaceful memory of the experience. He and his entire staff are very respectful and treat each person as an individual. (My mom has had a consult with him too). He puts value on making sure that he understands the persons concerns and wishes, and is then honest about what he recommends be done to get the best results. Like magic, he and his skillful team create a better looking you. I am a 46 year old mother of 3. I am 5'6" 127lbs and I have never looked better! Follow the resting advice. I created the environment that got me away from my everyday work load which made it easier. Consider it a part of the investment, Dr. S does his part and you do yours! Have fun, relax and enjoy, your search can stop with Dr. Salemy. I look forward to seeing him when he does work for my parents, and I would love to have him work on my eyes someday. Bucket List? maybe so. Oh, btw I live in Alaska and did a lot of research online. Dr. Salemy stood out for me. He communicated with me in an exceptional manner via phone and internet. I just knew he was the right one and once I met him and his staff (2 days prior to surgery) any left over worries were completely gone!

Dr. S performed a mommy-makeover (tummy tuck, liposuction, breast lift and slight reduction) for me in January 2011, and the transformation from "before" to "after" is nothing less than amazing. My once saggy, baggy abdomen is now wonderfully flat and tight and my uneven heavy breasts are now perfectly lifted and symmetrical. In fact, they haven’t looked this good since I was a teenager. I am so very pleased with the results, I would highly recommend Dr. S to anyone searching for that “perfect” (skilled, talented, competent, knowledgeable, excellent credentials, terrific bedside manner, etc.) plastic surgeon; you won’t be disappointed.

This is a long review – but I think it’s worth it. What I’m going to tell you about Dr. S is not unlike all the other reviews you’ve read of him here and elsewhere online. What I can guarantee you is that he is all that and more. His dedication to his patients and ability to connect and truly listen is unrivaled, and something so rare in the medical field. I am less than two weeks post-op from my Mommy Makeover and absolutely cannot believe the results I already see and how great I feel. After thinking about it for five years and over a year of actual research on the procedure and the many doctors that perform it, I traveled from Montana to have Dr. S perform my Mommy Makeover - abdominoplasty, breast lift and augmentation. I am a 35-year-old mother of two amazing little girls. Like so many women I know and have read about in my ongoing research to get to this point, my body changed dramatically after having my girls. I met with other doctors in Seattle, Salt Lake City, Denver and Los Angeles and not once felt as comfortable and confident as I did in the first five minutes of meeting Dr. S. After meeting with him in September and deciding on a late January surgery date (to get through the holidays), I had plenty of time to think about the procedures I was having and ask he and his staff a multitude of questions. Dr. S always returned my calls and emails personally. This fact just added to the confidence I felt in him from moment one. My husband and I arrived in Seattle the evening before my surgery, and while walking to baggage claim received the message that Dr. S’s wife was in labor! Even with this huge event in his family’s life, Dr. S did not want to cancel my surgery – he got his team together and had my surgery bright and early on a Saturday morning, after the safe arrival of he and his wife’s new baby. Even after my husband and I insisted that it was no problem what so ever to come back another time, Dr. S’s dedication to his patients and his practice shown through. I think it speaks volumes about this doctor that he was able to even assemble his team to come in on a Saturday. And speaking of his team - from the staff in the front office to the nurses and anesthesiologist, I truly felt like I was priority one every time we met. They all went above and beyond to make comfortable every step of the way. I am sure there are many skilled doctors that can provide tremendous transformations and results. It is the “human” connection that I believe is missing in today’s medical practice. Have you ever walked into a doctor’s office and felt like “patient X”? We, in fact, trust all that is sacred to perfect strangers. Our entire humanity including our dignity, vulnerability, and life is in their hands. Wouldn’t it be nice to connect to a doctor that cares for you as he would his own? Well I am thrilled to say that true humanity exists in Dr Salemy. He is so passionate about his patients well being that it is not unusual for him to call you in between surgeries, on his way home from work, or headed out to the grocery store to answer your questions or just check in. I have never had a doctor treat me more like family and less like “the patient”. Do not hesitate to book your procedure with Dr. S. I cannot recommend him enough.

Compared to other before and after photos, his showed significantly better results. He personally responded to my email. Easy to get an appointment and his staff was flexible. Dr. S is the genuine article, very easy to talk to, sincere, straightforward, positive, kind, humble but confident. Of significance for me was his focus on providing me with results that looked natural. I love the results and am going back for body work in a couple of months. I compared him to another surgeon for price and technique when I accompanied a friend through the process with another Seattle doctor and found that techniques can vary with some doctors clinging to older techniqes and others continuing to learn new ones. Dr. S used techniques that provided less down time, no negative outcomes long term, and were less invasive but just and sometimes more effective. His prices are competitive for the Seattle area but lower than expected considering the quality of his work.

After seeing Dr. S's Web site and photo gallery, I was sold. The photo gallery showcased women (some of whom looked like me in the before pics) who had breast lifts, but they also looked like they had implants. Amazing! Just the look I wanted but with less recovery time and less expense. As soon as I met Dr. S, I knew I was doing the right thing - he is kind, friendly, and current on new surgical techniques. I felt comfortable right away, and I did not walk away disappointed. I am beyond thrilled with the results and I would highly recommend this doctor.

Dr. S made me feel comfortable from the moment I met him. He listened to my thoughts and concerns, then addressed them in terms that I could understand. He is very professional and my outcome was more than satisfactory. I would highly recommend him.

Dr. S is a Miracle Worker! He is the complete package as a surgeon: brilliant, well educated, skillful, kind, concerned, professional and has the sweetest bedside manner! He is an artist as a surgeon and really listened to me and my concerns about my body while always making me feel good about myself. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. S to anyone considering plastic surgery. He has helped me reclaim my sexy, womanly figure and I feel terrific! Thank you Dr. S!

From the start he was patient, impressivly knowledgable, realistic, very clean! and most of all kind. He answered all my quetions even the dumb obivious ones. He explained all that would happen step by step and so did all his staff. I was at ease with all my decision making because of the staff and Doc.

Dr. is truly a gifted and highly competent plastic surgeon. My husband and I are thrilled with the results of these surgeries. I would highly recommend both Dr. Salemy and his staff to perform the surgeries that I myself experienced, based on the positive outcome of everything that I had done.
Posted by Kelly D.
At my initial consult he made me feel very comfortable. He understood what I was experiencing. He presented me with a lot of information which allowed me to make an informed decision. For my body size he recommended the best procedure and amount to remove to give me the most natural looking breasts for my body. He explained all the risks and I what I would experience post-surgery. There were NO surprises!

I live in Texas and went to Seattle Washington to have my facelift and eyelid surgery! Dr. is such a genuine doctor. From the moment I met him, I felt reassured and confident that he would do an excellent job and I would ultimately end up with the results I was looking for. Well, I am more than pleased. I am thrilled beyond words. He is the BEST! His care for his patients is wonderful and his staff is so warm and friendly. They make you feel completely at ease. Dr. explains everything in a way that makes you know you have made the right decision! He post surgery care is just as great. Once I returned home to Texas he continued his care with calling me every couple of days and having me email pictures each week so he could see the progress I was making! Does that tell you what a wonderful doctor he is!!! I would highly recommend Dr.!

I am very thankful that I had my rhinoplasty performed by Dr. S. It was an easy experience and the results were better than I expected. I knew during my consultation that his vision of what needed to be changed would give me the natural results I wanted. I credit Dr. S for the easy recovery and small amount of bruising. He is very easy to talk to explained the procedure thoroughly. I will definitely return for any other procedures I will have in the future.

Breast Implant Revision
Dr. is very attentive. He makes his patients feel comfortable and well taken care of. He even called me the day after my surgery from his personal cell phone to see how I was doing and to let me know that he could be reached at any time if I had any questions.

I am so very happy that I chose Dr. S for my procedure. He is an excellent Doctor and I felt comfortable in my decision the first time I spoke with him. His staff was extremely friendly and helpful and made my experience better than I ever thought it could be. I already have a couple of friends who are so impressed with my procedure that they will be getting theirs done by Dr. S also. I will recommend Dr. S to anyone looking for a great plastic surgeon since he is such an amazing Doctor!

Brazilian Butt Lift
I am happy with the results of my liposuction(upper and lower abdomen) with fat transfer to buttocks. I wanted a rounder, fuller buttocks. There is a noticeable improvement of shape and fullness. I still have swelling and some bruising, but much less than I anticipated. The first 8 hours the most painful. After that, stiffness and soreness are the best description of my discomfort. Dr. Salemy prepared me for what I would likely feel and see during recovery. So I was not alarmed with anything. His staff is nice and Reyne is a wonderful recovery nurse!

When I walked into Dr. Salemy's office, I felt like Rosie O'Donnell's character on Nip/Tuck. Here were all of these beautiful girls in the office and I was dumpy and had a bunch of sloppy skin I wanted removed. Something I'd dreamed about for 27 years. I told myself, if they make me feel bad in the least, I am leaving and I'm never coming back. But it wasn't like that at all. I could not BELIEVE how wonderful everyone was to me. Not once did any of them make me feel "less than" for the way I'd let my body get. Dr. Salemy and his staff were positive, warm, kind, truly caring and supportive. And believe me, making that consultation appointment was the hardest part for me.I had known for 27 years what I wanted. After a bad car accident and then having a child, I had very loose and ugly skin. Clothes didn't fit me right and no matter how much weight I lost, I never felt like I could tuck my shirt in or look good in my clothes. So, I did the research to find a Board Certified physician from an excellent medical school who had great references. And then I went to see Dr. Salemy. The friendliness and warmth got me in for a consultation, but it was Dr. Salemy's knowledge, confidence and frankness that made me sure I was doing the right thing for me. He answered my questions thoroughly and in detail so that I was comfortable and I knew what to expect. He answered questions I didn't even know to have yet. When I wanted more done than I needed, he also told me what I DIDN'T need to have done - and explained why I didn't need it - saving me money on a procedure that wasn't necessary to get the results I wanted. The aftercare has been amazing. I have a real problem with anesthesia usually and I let Dr. Salemy know that. When I woke up from surgery, I had NO nausea. I was stunned by that. Every step of the way through recovery, I have felt supported and confident. I have felt in really good hands throughout. I'm only 3 weeks beyond surgery right now but the healing has been exceptional. I so love the results. I've been shopping for new clothes and wearing things I wouldn't have worn in the last 27 years and it feels so liberating. So good. And every time I go see Dr. Salemy, it feels like he's celebrating with me. I really, really like him and appreciate him and if you were my daughter or my best friend, I'd tell you - go to him. You will be so glad you did.

I recommend Dr. S because the entire experience (results, pre-op info, follow up) has been better than I could have imagined. My consultation was a little nerve racking at first, but Dr. S sensed immediately my nervousness and quickly made me feel at ease. He not only educates and explains the process, risks, and procedure but listens! Dr. S's sincerity extends beyond being honest; he reminds me of doctors I've had my whole life, who remember the personal details that distinguish you from the other patients. The surgery itself went well - the nurses and anesthesiologist were incredibly friendly (and funny!) Any time I've had any questions I have been offered a next day appointment to quell my concerns and if I don't accept the offer then I immediately receive a phone call from Dr. S to address my questions or concerns. It's clear that the after care isn't just the standard appointment system but Dr. Salemy leaves an open door for any future concerns. My results are amazing and actually look even better than my before/after photos. Incredibly natural, proportionate, well placed and soft! I still recognize my cleavage line but now it's the size I dreamed of. The only people I wouldn't recommend to Dr. S are people who want showy, unnatural "plastic" surgery. If you want detail-oriented, compassionate, professional care with a beautiful results then I strongly recommend Dr. S.

Dr. Salemy has performed another Masterpiece on me with a medial thigh lift. He is so skilled, kind, and caring. No words can adequately describe the joy and wonder I feel when I look at how he has sculpted and fixed me. I'm beautiful and it is Dr. S who has made feel this way. His staff are easy going and really put you at ease, making anxiety disappear. The anethesiologist was wonderful & I woke up in great spirits in recovery. At just 3 days post-op, discomfort is minimal and healing is right on schedule. I highly recommend Dr. Salemy and will go to him for all my plastic surgery requirements.

If Dr S had a fan club, I would be President. It was after ‘interviewing’ with many surgeons and getting many opinions that really made it obvious to me how different Surgeons can be, I know now more than ever how important it is to get 2nd, 3rd and in my case several opinions. Some very prestigious surgeons in the Puget Sound area (not naming names) were scary, they wanted to do things that I hadn’t even came to talk about…. break my jaw, add implants where none were needed etc. But I knew as soon as I met Dr S that I found the right Doctor. My exhausting search was finally over. Aside from his phenomenal credentials and experience, I was so surprised and refreshed by his amazing honesty. It was apparent that he takes his role seriously and always strives to do what’s in the best interest of his clients, even if it means less business for him. On top of it all, he has the nicest bedside manner. I highly recommend Dr S for anyone looking for an outstanding cosmetic surgeon. I have more on my list that I would like to do in the future, so I plan to have a long term relationship with him. Oh yeah and his staff are fantastic too!

Dr. S did a wonderful job on my lollipop breast lift w/ under the muscle silicone implants! My scarring is very minimal after only 6 weeks. He's a great doctor who I've already recommended to my family and plan to use for any other work I'd need in the future

I went into the experience not knowing what to expect. The doctor and his staff made the whole process, from the consultation to the final post-op appt. 6 weeks later, very comfortable and trouble free. The doctor was honest about how different size implants would look on my body type, but left it up to me to decide what I wanted. The results are exactly what I was expecting and I am extremely happy with them. Dr. Salemy and his staff made it great experience. GM.

I highly recomend Dr. Salemy. I had plans on meeting a few different doctors to see which one I felt most comfortable with. My first appointment was with Dr. Salemy. I told him what I wanted to accomplish. He explained to me what he could do to accomplish this. He asked If i had any questions, which I did. He took his time answering all the questions I had. So i decided I did not need to meet other doctors. I felt Dr Salemy was the perfect choice. I am very happy with my results. Also Dr Salemy is a really nice person! Thank you Dr Salemy, Vicki

I chose him online because his website had the best selection of pictures posted and also because of the information posted about Dr. Salemy as being rated first class as well. Dr. Salemy and his staff treated me with the upmost kindness and respect throughout my experience of having a breast augmentation pocedure. I chose to drive all the way from Port Angeles to get the best care. If I were to have something else done in the future I would go back to Dr. Salemy again.Thanks Dr. Salemy and staff for your service!-VS

I went on friend recommendation as her husband had researched the NW surgeons. I truly have not one single complaint. I even did an initial phone consultation since I wasn't able to drive over & meet Dr. Salemy before scheduling my surgery. My experience was absolutely wonderful & my results are fabulous!!! I saw Dr. Salemy in Seattle for breast augmentation. His staff were warm & friendly, very caring. Dr. Salemy was amazing!! He didn't pressure me to go larger than what my body frame should have. He's warm, caring and didn't make me feel like I was just another "procedure." He even called me @ home a few weeks after surgery just to check in. I never felt embarassed or awkward & I'm overjoyed with my results. Anyone considering breast augmentation should see Dr. Salemy. He is definitely worth the drive if you live out of area. I have no regrets!!

I looked at a lot of doctors websites and chose Dr. Salemy because the before and after pic's matched. Everyone was warm, kind and understanding. They were willing to answer my questions, no matter how silly! I explained this carefully to Dr. Salemy and he.. is magic!!! He has a quiet, calm confidence to him that made everything not scarey! His staff were helpful, kind and supportive through everything! There aren't enough words to say thank you! Dr. Salemy is an artist!

I recently did a breast augmentation with Dr. Salemy. Dr. Salemy is great! His staff are also wonderful! They are all professional, knowledgeable and friendly. Dr. Salemy listened to my expectations and my concerns. He addressed all of my concerns and eased my mind about the surgery. When I left his office after my initial consultation, my surgery was scheduled and I was certain that he knew exactly what I wanted. He is just amazing! I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Salemy and his staff! The review says it all. I couldn't possibly be happier with my experience and my results!

My experience with Dr. Salemy was positively wonderful. He performed a breast augmentation on me and I couldn't be happier. The whole process was very comfortable and pleasant. I did an extensive amount of research to determine the very best surgeon in the Pacific Northwest. Upon reviewing several websites and Dr. S's credentials - I felt confident that he was perhaps the most viable candidate...Yale grad, 'Best Plastic Surgeon in Seattle'...the list goes on. After our initial consultation I knew that he was the perfect choice. He put me at ease with his warmth and professionalism. I highly recommend Dr. Salemy - he is the best!!

After research and speaking with other Doctors, there was no doubt that I felt the most confident with Dr. Salemy. Of all the Doctors I had spoken to and met with, there was no doubt that Dr. Salemy was the Doctor I felt most confident with by far. Dr. Salemy and his team are incredible. I can completely understand why Dr. Salemy would be voted as Seattle's Best, because he is. Everyone on his team are equally as helpful and make you feel very comfortable. I am extremely happy with my surgery, and it just makes my life so much easier.

I chose him because out of every review site online from google to yahoo etc he had the most reviews and they were all 5 stars. He beyond surpassed everyone I read about then when I met him he was professional and his staff is awesome. It was just perfect! His pictures were awesome and the scaring was so minimal compared to other providers and that was a huge issue for me. He's kind, smart, honest, and never sells you anything you don't need. I wanted a bit larger and he explained in such great detail why that a size down would be more beneficial. He was RIGHT!!!! I would recommend him to every person I speak to! Thank you for changing my life!! You truly have a gift like no other!

Everything regarding my experience with Dr. Salemy was excellent. I am so grateful that someone as highly recommended and recognized was available to me in my small town of Walla Walla. From my first contact with his office I was impressed with how warm and efficient his staff were. Dr. Salemy himself did a wonderful job of educating me on my procedure, choices, and expectations. I felt he was professional yet personable and genuinely interested in helping me. They did an excellent job in all stages of my procedure, and were always quickly responsive to my emails or calls. I particularly appreciated the ability to handle much of this via email, as opposed to waiting on hold for 20 + minutes like I have to do to speak w/ my primary care physician's nursing staff. But most of all I am thrilled with the results. My breasts are beautiful; perfect! I couldn't be happier.

Choosing Dr. Salemy as my surgeon was the best decision I could have made. He answered all my questions, was very professional and he talked to me like I was a person. Not like he was listing off questions and interviewing me. He didn't judge me about my age and he was very honest with me about everything. He made me feel so comfortable and was happy to answer any questions my boyfriend, my mom and I had. I would recommend him to anyone looking into cosmetic surgery.

Dr. Salemy is not only a great doctor but an artist as well. I went in with the purpose of reclaiming my pre-baby tummy. Having already implemented a healthy lifestyle with exercise and good nutrition, I was still having trouble losing some of the fat around my tummy. As a 28 year old, I decided I needed to reverse this trend while my skin is still in prime shape with good elasticity. Dr. Salemy looked at my skin and said that yes, indeed I do have some really good skin and that the results should be favorable. They turned out amazing. My skin is well on its way to being super smooth and my abdominal muscles are definitely starting to show through. As an African woman of mixed origin, I was hesitant to going with a tummy tuck due to my fears of scaring (and my faith in my skin that it will bounce back beautifully) and so I put my trust in Dr. Salemy and decided to take the chance and hoped that my body handled the procedure well. Dr. Salemy did an amazing job especially on the contouring of not only my abdomen but also at that pretty small spot on both sides where the lower abdomen joins the hips. My friend recently said," You look beautiful...he had a vision."

I am SO pleased with the results of my lower facelift, browlift and blepharoplasty performed by Dr. Salemy! He is the real thing. Genuinely kind, honest, extremely intelligent, down-to-earth and, I must say, an artist! I could go on and on. Once you meet him, you will know. I had met 3 other surgeons before him. Once I left Dr. Salemy's office, I said to my mom (who came with me): "he's the one." I travelled from the east side of the state to have my surgery performed by Dr. Salemy.

The Doctor and staff at the facility showed great proffesionalism, answered all my questions, always very helpful if I had to call for anything and made me feel very comfortable and made me feel that they truly cared about me and how I felt about the whole procedure. Best experience ever with medical staff.

I think my results speak for themselves. I think my breasts look extremely natural and proportionate to my body. I would highly recommend Dr. Salemy. He explained the whole process to me and answered all of my questions. The nurses and anestesiologist were great as well- they definitely helped me not be so nervous the day of the surgery. I also appreciate that Dr. S didn't try to convince me to do Silicone. Overall, great experience!

Every member of the practice is as devoted to making the patient as comfortable and at ease as the doctor. I was always made to feel like I was a priority, any question or concern I had was addressed in a patient and professional manner, and it was a truly fabulous experience.

I came to Dr. Salemy after doing a bit of research online. His credentials and patient testimonials convinced me to make an appointment and after I met with him and his staff I knew he was the right doctor for me. I highly recommend Dr. Salemy and his very capable staff; in fact, I am now considering having a brow and eyelid lift in the future because I know that I will be in such capable hands. He is simply the best!

I had another procedure with Dr. Salemy, so I was comfortable with him and his staff. This is a procedure I have wanted for a decade, but was too nervous to discuss with anyone. I finally got the guts to discuss with Dr. Salemy and he answered all of my questions without making me feel awkward. I think this procedure and recovery went as smoothly as it could have. I felt fully informed, no surprises.

Dr. Salemy is awesome. I researched several doctors in the Seattle and Bellevue area and spoke to their offices. I had a lot of apprehension because this is a big personal decision. Some were very pushy or less approachable. I researched Dr. Salemy and contacted his website. He contacted me directly and responded to my questions. This was a big difference from the other surgeons I contacted. When I had my initial appointment, Dr. Salemy was excellent answering my concerns. He was approachable and authentic. Dr. Salemy listened to my concerns and gave honest feedback. It’s a bit intimidating to have a conversation about your body and problem areas but he made me feel at ease. Dr. Salemy also didn’t try to over sell me on things I wasn’t quite ready for. I trust his judgment. My husband was really concerned with scaring from breast lift. I was afraid of scars, as well. My husband was happy with how everything looked before, and didn’t want to me scar after we researched some photos of breast lifts. We got cold feet and both panicked and almost backed out altogether. I was concerned and my husband was worried about me and the risks (looking at other doctor's photos online). I reached out to the Dr. Salemy office and he contacted me directly (via email). He recommended if I’m not comfortable with the incisions of a full lift and are instead just looking for a bit more fullness just have the augmentation and hold off on the lift for now - and I can always come back and have a lift in the future. I felt more at ease with that information. I trusted Dr. Salemy and wanted to move forward with the lipo (outer thighs and flanks and augmentation). Dr. Salemy’s office staff was very helpful with my crazy schedule. I had international travel in the middle of all of this so finding a pre-op meeting was challenging. At the pre-op meeting, Dr.Salemy discussed the lift again in person. He told me the augmentation would give me the fullness but won’t give the lift, but I would probably want a lift later, which I could do. I went home and discussed with my husband. I decided on the lift with augmentation and liposuction in two areas (outer thighs and flanks). I am so impressed with Dr. Salemy. I trust him. I had my surgery on 12/27/2011. I can see a difference with the lipo and can't wait to see the the results of lift and augmentation after I heal. Dr. Salemy's been very responsive and supportive throughout my recovery. Dr. Salemy called and checked on me the next day and has been extremely responsive to questions throughout my recovery. He is very personable and I trust him. I am such a fan of Dr. Salemy. I think he is stellar and I am very happy with my choice. I highly recommend him as a surgeon.

I CANT SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS ABOUT DR. SALEMY AND HIS TEAM. NOT ONLY DOES HE EMAIL YOU PERSONALLY WHEN YOU CONTACT HIS OFFICE WITH QUESTIONS, BUT HE EXPLAINS EVERYTHING TO YOU WITH YOUR INTEREST IN MIND. HE TELLS YOU LIKE IT IS AND DOESNT TRY TO JUST TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOU FOR THE MONEY. ITS BEEN 3 WEEKS SENSE THE PROCEDURE AND I COULDNT BE HAPPIER WITH THE RESULTS.

Dr. Salemy has a great balance of professionalism and bedside manner. My body is very proportioned and my tummy is VERY flat. He didn't try to sell me any procedures that he felt I didn't need. I was actually advised by another doctor to have lipo with my tummy tuck and he said I didn't need it. I felt that he had great recommendations and he definitely proved himself with the results. He is a true artist.

After hours of researching breast augmentation online, I found Dr. Salemy in Seattle, WA. His reviews, background, and post-op pictures are superb. Once my husband & I met him, we felt very comfortable. He is a very knowledgeable doctor who really listened to my goals to help guide me to the right decisions. I can’t begin to express how great our experience was having the surgery done by Dr. Salemy. Any questions I ever had, I could just e-mail him & he would answer right back. As an out-of-town patient, I found both he and his staff to be very accommodating and friendly. After surgery, I stayed at the recommended hotel across the street & his nurses were so helpful that they actually rolled me in my wheelchair to my hotel room and helped my husband get me into bed comfortably. Due to us traveling from out-of-town, Dr. Salemy met us the next morning for my post-op on a Saturday, his day off. I had such a great experience & results that my sister-in-law has already traveled to see Dr. Salemy and scheduled a surgery. I would strongly recommend Dr. Salemy for anyone who is considering plastic surgery & looking for a great doctor!

Last year I got a breast lift and outer thigh and flank liposuction. Dr. Salemy was my doctor and he was amazing. I was happy with the results and his work so I decided to get a tummy tuck and do the inner thighs this year. Dr. Salemy was excellent and I had no hesitation going to him again. I absolutely trust him and know that I am in good hands. He's awesome!
