5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

I had the best experience, highly recommended!

Beginning with the consultation, Dr. Chasan was more than friendly, confident, and professional. He listened to exactly what I wanted to achieve out of my breast augmentation and delivered the perfect results. My pre and post operation experience was incredible. Dr. Chasan and his nurses Mary and Wilma were by my side every step of the way. They went above and beyond! I felt I had established...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Amazing doctor!!!

Dr. Chasan and his staff are amazing! I cannot say enough wonderful things about my experience with them. I had a breast augmentation and could not be happier with the results. Dr. Chasan is professional and attentive and truly an expert plastic surgeon. After nursing two boys, I knew my breasts needed some help, but was nervous about an augmentation resulting in "fake" looking breasts. Dr....

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

34 Yrs Old, Breast Implants After Breastfeeding!

Dr Chasan is so knowledgeable in everything he does. He's kind and patient. He sits with me and answers all of my questions. I had some concerns a few days after my surgery (which turned out to be nothing and totally normal) but he got back to me as soon as I called the office. And I texted him pics and he responded right away. This made me feel so much better knowing everything was normal and going great. And just to know that I have a caring, competent doctor who is on top of things helped put my mind at ease. I absolutely love Dr Chasan and what he has done for me and my self confidence and my appearance!

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Best Doctor there is

I had my mommy makeover 3 weeks ago and I am so happy I chose Dr. Chasan. I had a total of 4 consults with different doctors, and Dr. Chasan was the only realistic consult. He was honest, surgically agressive and confident and made me feel good about my decision. He was the only doctor that offered a recovery on site for me to stay the night in with one of the best nurses. That meant a...

Feeling Young on Insides but Not on the Outsides - Del Mar CA

Dr. Chasan made me feel comfortable right from the very start explaining The procedure. He was thorough and made it very clear the risks being a smoke that I was. I rate him five stars for everything! I love going for follow ups just to see everyone ! All so friendly and genuine! Great staff working for Dr. Chasan. i did my homework and checked out other plastic surgeons but none came close to the feeling of confidence I got in this doctor after I had my second consult.

5 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty

Revision Rhinoplasty and Breast Lift - Del Mar, CA

Doctor chasan is amazing! I've had my nose done twice by a different doctor and he did not give me any structure. I was left looking like miss piggy. I literally thought it would be impossible to have a thin nose with structure. Doctor chasan completely reshaped it and it looks beautiful. I couldn't be happier. I've also had my breasts done twice and they kept sagging and became way too big...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Reductive Augmentation (Breast Reduction, Breast Lift, and Implants ) with Dr Paul Chasan. Del Mar, CA

He did an outstanding job! I love my newly remodeled breasts!!!! I did TONS of research before choosing Dr Chasan as my surgeon, I also read reviews on Yelp & Real Self about him and many other reputable surgeons. I'm not the type of person to just trust anyone, especially when it comes to cosmetic surgery. I have three friends who have had their breasts done by Dr Chasan and they all look amazing! I did go for consults with other surgeons and I was unimpressed with their work. Before and After pics are a very good indicator of the surgeons level of expertise. Dr Chasan's pictures spoke volumes: his suturing technique is meticulous and that makes for better healing and less visible scarring. That was very important to me. He was very thorough when explaining my options, and helped me select what was best for me, based on what I was looking to achieve. He answered my many questions, and he really listened to all of my concerns and took them to heart. The staff was always friendly and helpful. They kept in contact with me before and after my surgery. Dr. Chasan even called me the in the evening after I had surgery just to make sure I wasn't having any pain or nausea. I've recommended him to many already and will continue to do so!

Obsessed with Tension

After genetics, the most important factor for achieving a perfect scar is avoiding tension on the skin closure; this is established at the time of the operation. The skin as an organ is designed to keep out the environment, and therefore has an enormous amount of immunologic and inflammatory cells. When the skin is injured with a surgical procedure or if there is significant tension placed on the skin, there is an increased recruitment of these cells leading to more inflammation. This can...

No Trauma, No Drama

The skin as an organ is designed to keep out the environment, and therefore has an enormous amount of immunologic cells. When the skin is injured with a surgical procedure or if there is significant tension placed on the skin, there is an increased recruitment of these cells leading to more inflammation which could result in a thick, red scar. As a revisionary specialist, who focuses on ways to minimize scars, I utilize several techniques to prevent trauma to the skin. A very common cause...

Make a Good Decision When Selecting a Surgeon

“Lo Barato es mas carro” is a Spanish term that translates to “the cheaper it is the more expensive it becomes”. This is very appropriate in the field of cosmetic surgery. I often see patients who are willing to consider going to Tijuana or a surgeon with no formal training to get breast surgery. They would make this vital decision just to save a few dollars which I find wrong on so many levels. No one would dare go to a cheap neurosurgeon or think about buying a bargain parachute,...

Can a Plastic Surgeon Be Good at Both Facial and Body Cosmetic Surgery?

This is a question that I get asked often and the short answer is yes. It is possible not only to be competent at each of these surgeries, but to excel at them. As an experienced plastic surgeon, I do the following procedures on a regular basis: browlift, eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty, facelift, breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, tummy tuck, liposuction, and laser surgery. Each procedure has a learning curve and a degree of mastery over time. That is why you want a surgeon...

Breast capsulorrhaphy revisited

Capsulorrhaphy for Revisionary Breast SurgeryPaul E. Chasan, MD; and Cameron S. Francis, BSBackground Despite more than 3 million breast implant surgeries performed to date, the common sequela of implant malposition is a problem to which little attention has been paid in the literature. It can be treated predictably and relatively simply with capsulorrhaphy and mirror-image capsulotomy. Additionally, capsulorrhaphy can be used to reduce the size of the...
