Woman with Calves Now!!

I had calf implant surgery almost 3 weeks ago and am sooo happy! The surgery recovery was not too painful- even in hospital I only needed basic pain relief. I was advised to wear flat shoes and was able to walk out of hospital. For the first week I rested up as much as possible- walking was kept to a minimum and I elevated my legs. I removed the tapes after 1 week and was pleased with the...

34 Years Old Scheduled 5 Years Ago... Had to Reaschedule Due to Life..but Now It Finally Happened - Fresno, CA

Dr. Askren has been awesome since first surgery 10 yrs ago with breast implants. Went to him 6 yrs ago for tummy tuck consult, scheduled surgery but postponed after meeting my now husband. 2 children later I am ready. Got my tummy tuck, replaced saline implants for silicone and got liposuction of iliacs. He is awesome in every way. He spent plenty of time with me at consultation and pre op visit as well as the morning of surgery. He is punctual. I Saw him day after surgery and following day for dressing changes which were in and out visits didnt have to wait in waiting room long at all as staff knows how uncomfortable we feel post op. Able to call and ask any question at any time without ever getting a negative attitude or impression from staff. was provided with adequate necessary supplies. His staff is also awesome, friendly and professional. They always are smiling and make me feel comfortable. I don't see many posts from Fresno, Ca on this site but wanted to help anyone in the area thinking of going to him.

54 Yrs 2 Boys Now 18 & 23 Yrs - Fresno, CA

I had talk with 2 doctors in the same facility and I was comfortable with the 2nd Doctor. He explained the whole procedure on the pamphlet and paperwork on the procedure he is up against. I love how he took his time with the explanation and the post surgery recovery. The procedure itself in my situation of a mastopexy is the cut of an anchor o-) that will be of the scar. Wrapped tightly in the...

43 Yrs Old, First Child at 37 Followed by 100lbs Weight Loss - Dr. Askren, Fresno, CA

Dr. Askren is great. He'll tell you and draw in detail for you what he'll do to you. I think he tries to scare you out of it or at least make you really think hard about moving forward. He is a perfectionist and will encourage you to do what will give you the best possible outcome he can deliver. He is in high demand! It took 2.5 months to get a consult appointment. I probably wouldn't have gotten a surgery appointment for another 2.5-3 months without begging, pleading and getting super lucky with a cancellation. One thing they don't necessarily tell you is that he records his notes and then sends them for transcription. The transcribed notes have to be back in your file and you will wait 2 weeks from your consult before anyone can talk to you about scheduling. His office manager, Lorena is fantastic. The surgery center at their facility was wonderful as well. Do expect to wait when you see him, especially if it's a Tuesday or Thursday which are surgery days. All I can say is he's worth it!
