Personal Goal Met! 100% Satisfied! - Atherton, CA

Dr. Mehta is absolutely amazing. He made me feel so comfortable and I knew I was in very capable hands. He was phenomenal. How I chose Dr. Mehta: I set up consultations with multiple plastic surgeons that I found on RealSelf, Yelp, etc. I scheduled free consults before any paid consults. That way, if I found a surgeon I was happy with early on, I wouldn't have to pay any fees. After meeting with a few options, I was stuck between Dr. Mehta and Duet Plastic Surgery. Both were extremely kind and well educated. I was so stuck between the two that I decided the tie breaker would be price. Dr. Mehta ended up being less expensive, and he was willing to get me in for surgery in a very tight time frame. I made the decision and never looked back. He was absolutely fabulous and I have no regrets.

Love my New Nose!! - San Francisco, CA

I had a rhinoplasty when I was 20 and it looked OK when the surgeon took off the splint but over the next few weeks it started getting more and more pinched and twisted. I couldn't breathe and was always kinda self-conscious about it. I'm in my 30's now and am planning to get married this summer. I wanted my nose to look good in my wedding photos so I decided it was time to get it fixed! I consulted with 3 different surgeons and really clicked with Dr. Mehta. He showed me what my new nose would look like on his computer and made me feel really comfortable about the whole process.

5 out of 5 stars Chin Implant

Expectations Exceeded - Bay Area, CA

Pro: The results I desired were exceeded Fairly easy recovery Con: Takes a few months for the implant to feel natural Results take several weeks Motivation: I have a naturally small jaw and chin (the latter of which is slightly crooked). This wasn't so much of a problem when I was younger, but my neck fattened up quite a bit over the past few years, consuming the little bit...

I Can Breathe Again! - Atherton, CA

Excellent - Dr Mehta was professional and experienced with a very comforting bedside manner

5 out of 5 stars Septoplasty

For the First Time in 34 Years, a Fully Functioning Nose - Atherton, CA

I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Dr. Mehta is polite, easy-going and conveys his expertise and credentials in a friendly and not at all patronizing way. He quickly got back to me via email or phone whenever I needed it and helped me through an easy post-op. He even allowed me to "bend the rules" when it comes to resting: about a week after surgery I ran a half marathon with zero pain, no discomfort and breathing through my nose for the first time in my life. What a great job!

Botox and Fillers - Atherton, CA

Dr. Mehta Rocks! - Bay Area, CA

My face looks fantastic thanks to Dr. Mehta- I would definently recommend going to him as he is very experienced and understands the results you want to achieve. His receptionist Jill is always friendly and very helpful as well. Overall, I have always had a amazing results with Dr. Mehta!

5 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty

Coudn't Be Happier! - Bay Area, CA

I narrowed down my search to Dr. Sam Most and Dr. Mehta. I had two consults with Dr. Mehta and while I really, really liked him as well as Jill, his scheduler/office manager, they seemed too good to be true. Seriously. The office is spa-like and Jill is so on the ball, friendly and super competent. Dr. Mehta makes you feel like the only patient in the world. He was personable, available for my endless questions (I ended up going for two consults because I had so many questions!) and from the beginning, listened to my story, never talked down to me and was confident he could fix my issues. I saw Dr. Most for a second opinion which sealed the deal. I was going with Dr. Mehta. Let me also mention that Dr. Mehta partners with Waverly Surgical Center and they were completely amazing as well paying attention to my past issues with MRSA and took into consideration my asthma and allergies. Dr. Coe who did my anesthesia was super fantastic esp. considering I've had complications with anesthesia in the past.

Had my Consultation and I Think I'm Ready for a Change

Dr. Mehta is truly amazing. It's hard for me to trust people, but he is so experienced, and a true expert in his field that it was almost impossible for me not to trust him. He was there with me right before the surgery and came to see me after. He also answers all the questions I have thrown his way right away. I can't wait to take this cast off and see my results.
