"I wanted to have faith that while I was under, should the requested implants be too large or too small, I could trust my doctor to make the appropriate resizing decision for me...."

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

I couldn't have asked for better!

I went in last year for a consultation for implants. The dr and staff were very friendly from the start. It took me some time to convince my husband that it was something worth me doing. So fast forward to this year in march I went back to have a new consultation. The dr stated that I really needed a lift, which I knew but I was hoping it wasn't necessary. I have 3 kids and breastfed all of...

Tummy Tuck - Finally Did It! So Worth It! - Los Alamitos, CA

Dr. Esmailian has the BEST bedside manner! He explained everything to me and answered all of my questions patiently and probably more than once if I needed it. The day of the procedure, I WAS nervous, but the nurses at the surgery center were so nice and talked me through everything; then when I saw Dr.E I felt even more at ease as I knew I was in good hands. Dr. E's staff is amazing and I feel extremely comfortable when I come in for my post op visits. If you are unsure about this procedure, you should see Dr. E for a consult. Whether you choose him or not, I'm sure you will feel more educated about this procedure and have the best info to make the best decision for you. Good luck!! :)

Amazing doctor and team!

I had my breast augmentation surgery from Dr. Esmailian in Dec 2016. I wanted to wait a while to see my recovery and result before writing a review so that I can have a more thorough review. I have wanted to have this surgery for as long as I can remember, but finally decided to make the jump. I did a lot a research to find the best doctor for me. As a nurse, I have seen first hand the many...
