5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

A Miracle Worker - Phoenix, AZ

Dr B is amazing I got my boobs done a year ago I had checked several doctors out and when I went to his office I knew I had finally found the doctor for me! His assistant had called me the night before my appointment to get to know me when I went in his office it was beautiful I told him I wanted my boobs to look natural and fit my body. When I got out of surgery they were everything I had hoped for and more there was little scaring and DR B called to check on me not to metion if I had any problems I could call him directly! I also had him fix my c-section scar he gave me a great price when all the other doctors had quoted me four times as much as he charged me! I love my new body and my husband and I tell everyone we know to go to him!

Amazing Breast Transformation- Mastopexy & Augmentation - Phoenix, AZ

Dr. Bass is an amazing plastic surgeon. He not only transformed my breasts but his bedside manner is impeccable. I went in to Dr. Bass's office after having lost a significant amount of weight to see what could be done about my sagging breasts. Needless to say I was nervous about a stranger staring at my breasts. Dr. Bass made me feel so comfortable and Norma is amazing as well. They put you right at ease. After that first meeting I knew I had found the right place. They answered all of my questions (and there were many)and helped me to decided which size would be best with my body type/figure. I scheduled my surgery for mastopexy and augmentation within 2 weeks of my initial visit. I have recommended him to all of my friends.

1 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Nothing About It Went Right

I had liposuction in 1997 on butt, knees and thighs. I really only wanted to get rid of the saddlebags but trusted the doctor (do NOT go to J.B. in Arizona!!!) when he said he'd have to balance it out by doing the whole area. The results were terrible - incredibly uneven, indentations and dents all over, saggy, saggy skin, saggy looking butt now because he took too much from the sides....

5 out of 5 stars Drainless Tummy Tuck

6 week update for reals this time!

Through Avanti Skin care

1 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Thought surgery was wonderful...until now I'm fighting to survive.

This was SO much easier than I could have hoped. Truly, I wouldn't change a thing. I will be returning to get the rest of my "skin bag" (butt/leg lift and arm lift) within the next nine months. Usually I tell people to avoid reviews that have nothing constructive criticism. But really, this was so fabulous. I ONLY wish I'd lost the weight and got my youthful body back years ago.
