Are you a patient of Shahram Salemy, MD?
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.
