40 Years Old Upper Lid Blepharoplasty - Oakland, CA

I have always had a hooded upper lid that I disliked and as I got older it bothered me more. I had been getting Botox for a few years to elevate my brow and using Japanese double eyelid tape, but was growing tired of having to rely on these costly methods. I decided that for my 40th birthday I was ready to take the plunge and invest in an upper lid blepharoplasty. I am currently three days...

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Loved Results with Juvederm - Oakland, CA

He is an artist with juvederm and does not recommend anything not needed. Great staff too.

5 out of 5 stars Smart Lipo

41 Yo Mom of Two Smart Lipo...still Recovering - Oakland, CA

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Photos Added! TT and MR - Oakland, CA

Dr Cedars and his office have been so wonderful and supportive. He communicates in a respectful manner not condescending like many doctors. He took lots of time to explain everything and answer all my questions. He has been consistently calling me post op to check in.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

20 days PO getting better. New pictures- before and after- San Francisco, CA

He was recommended by a friend who did her breast reduction like 20 years ago. I did get a consultation w/one other PS, but chose this guy because I read somewhere that he was a real "artist" about his work. Yeah, I know that's a lame reason, but to be honest, I really trust my friend's opinion and I'm just too busy with work and kids and "life" to spend a lot of time doing consults, which, by the way run around $150-$200 in the Northern California area! UPDATE 9/27/12 While I'm still not 100% where I want to be, I'm seeing more of what I like everday and have to give Dr. Cedars props. He is very knowledgeable and I've had no complications. He is very attentive and his staff is very responsive. I would definitely recommend him to anyone thinking about getting a tummy tuck in the San Francisco Bay area.

5 out of 5 stars Cellulaze

Cellulaze on 5/15/12 in San Francisco Bay Area - Oakland, CA

So far, so good with Dr. Cedars and his office. What I love about him most is he's conservative, not at ALL one of those sales-type plastic surgeons or cosmetic dermatologists. He's not promised the moon -- but reiterates that we "should see some very nice improvement." I appreciate that. He doesn't sell or oversell and has called me every day since the procedure to check in. Also, his private plastic surgery practice is not all he does -- he's quite involved clinically with the Children's Hospital in our area helping infants and children with Cranio-Facial disorders and is very respected as a surgeon. An MIT engineering grad, he's got the background to suggest he's not going to attempt procedures that don't have solid data/science behind them, so this was comforting to me as Cellulaze is new and I'm one of his first handful of Cellulaze patients. So far, so good. I'll post a final review when I'm three months out from procedure.


Four weeks after getting the first of two planned treatments I look worse than when I started. My face is bloated, saggy and the area under my eyes is baggy, discolored, red and puffy. On day two I developed a staph infection. I only hope my face returns to the way it looked before treatment but have grave doubts as I enter the fifth week. Many of the sun spots are already returning. I...

My daughter is 18 & is now wearing a size 38B bra which is now getting too small. Is it safe for her to get a breast reduction?

You raise several issues. In terms of safety, age 18 for surgery is not at any higher risk than another age. In fact, age 18 is typically associated... READ MORE

What is the usual time line, from when the insurance company approves breast reduction surgery to the actual surgery date?
