5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Smashed into a 36FF, down to a D. - San Jose, CA

I was referred to Dr. Fazilat by the founder of my dermatological clinic. This practice offers services from cosmetic surgery to routine dermatology to cancer treatment and reconstruction. The doctors are reputable and the doctors I've chosen are liked by their patients. Initially, I sought out a different doctor to discuss liposuction options. Through out discussion, I asked about breast reduction and the staff enthusiastically referred me to Dr. Fazilat. In fact, rather than suggesting I book another consult to speak with him, he graciously joined my appointment as he was in between surgical procedures at that time. When Dr. Fazilat entered the room, I felt an instant sense of ease. He was professional, but not too clinical. When I told him I was interested in a BR, he looked at me and at first glance, as if to relate to the burden and discomfort my breasts had caused and said, "Ohhh, you'd feel A LOT better." From there, I asked him several questions about the procedure, what technique he'd recommend, whether or not he thought I'd be a good candidate, etc. When I got home later that night, I started researching Dr. Fazilat and found nothing but positive reviews from patients (and not one review by anyone angry or dissatisfied) along with pretty realistic-yet-good looking before and after photos. His medical training was of very high standards and in the current phase of his career, he's considered a breast procedure expert. Dr. Fazilat is easy to talk to and easy to understand. He is confident, not arrogant, and gave me a sense of comfort that I was in good hands. He's friendly, has a good sense of humor, is respectful, and showed respect for my modesty during exams and during the BR preparation on the morning of surgery. His bedside manner has been superb in the exam room and throughout my recovery so far. And, his support staff is also responsive, ultra helpful, and easy to work with. On the fourth day of my BR recovery, I was feeling very itchy. I was not having an emergency nor was I in distress. I had emailed his staff asking if there was something I could do to help alleviate the itching. Instead of receiving an email response, I received a phone call from the doctor! I missed the call because I was putting my daughter to bed. So, I expected to reach a phone service when I called the number back, but I didn't. Dr. Fazilat answered the phone directly! I was so appreciative (and surprised!) that he made himself available, especially for such a "silly" question. I would recommend Dr. Fazilat to anyone looking to have a breast procedure done. I've felt very comfortable with him and with my decision throughout the whole process. I'm now on day 10 of recovery and am eager to see him at my next post-op in a few days so he can guide me onto the next stage of recovery.

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Extremely Satisfied with my Results. Mountain View, CA

When you are choosing a cosmetic surgeon, there are so many factors to consider. Cosmetic surgery is not just healthcare, it's an art. Dr. Fazilat was not only extremely professional, he has an excellent bedside manner and really makes you feel comfortable. It's really important to be able to open up with someone who will be operating on you. He should be nicknamed the "patient whisperer", because he has a calming way about him that is so important for this type of procedure. Dr SF is a true artist, and I'm extremely satisfied with the results. Safety was also very important for me, and you could tell he took extra measures to make sure that nothing went wrong. He also chooses his staff well, and the surgical center and anaestesiologist were all wonderful. The procedure honestly couldn't have been any smoother, and I couldn't be happier. He went above and beyond, and my results are far above expectations. I highly recommend.

Life Changing! Best Decision I Ever Made! - Sunnyvale, CA

I was referred to Dr. Fazilat by a personal friend and I am so happy he did! I had a consultation which was very informative and he recommended all of the things I wanted and had researched prior to meeting with him. I had a full Mommy Makeover which included a breast lift, tummy tuck and liposuction. The day of the surgery was stress free and enjoyable. I remember Adele playing in the...

3 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Mom of 1 Had Lots of Extra Skin After Pregnancy. No Amount of Working out Helped It - Mountain View, CA

Dr. Fazilat made me feel very comfortable at my first appointment. I had seen other doctors and chose to go with him. Unfortunately the 'results' he said were achievable, were not. It wasn't until the day of while prepping for surgery he informed me of the results I would actually get and it led to me making a rash decision that I now regret. Nobody should ever have to be put in a place to make a decision without properly thinking over the pros & cons. I found that to be unprofessional. A good doctor should be upfront and realistic about the results in the consultations before surgery. He had multiple opportunities to tell me these things with follow-ups before surgery. I was happy with the way he sculpted my belly button though. That was one of my concerns and he listened and made it the shape I asked for (his previous work showed round belly buttons that did not look realistic), so props to the realistic belly button and the tightened abdominal muscles.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Finally with my New Boobs! - Mountain View, CA

Dr. Shahin and his office may not talk to you much just enough to cover ????????however sounds funny you do not need to worry about your procedure! I felt "fund a Dr. I want to go with!" He did not tell me what CC and such. He let me try a few implants to see which I liked that's it. He knew then what he would do! If you are thikning of BA in the San Francisco bay area, well worth to meet him???

I highly recommend my surgeon and his office staff! The best of the best!

41 Years Old, 2 Kids, 5'3", 141 Lbs - Ready for a Mommy Makeover! - Mountain View, CA

Dr. Fazilat is really friendly and straightforward which I like. When I met him for the first time, he made me feel really comfortable as we discussed what I want and need. After I met him, I still had questions and some reservations about result and risk factors which I shared with his office manager. He called me after he heard from his office manager my concerns and spent a good amount of time answering all my questions and making me feel confident with my decision.
