Tummy Tuck - Orange, CA

My wife referred me to Dr. Taleisnik after he replaced her Breast Implants. She was so happy with her care and results, that a few years later when I talked about a Tummy Tuck for the 100th time she insisted that I go see Dr. Taleisnik. I did have the surgery at the end of October and now 3 months later I could not be happier with the results. Dr. Taleisnik and his team make you feel at home and comfortable right from the beginning. The office has a casual, yet professional atmosphere where they explained the procedure and what results I could expect. The really listen and answer all your questions and concerns. I would highly recommend Dr. Taleisnik if you are considering any type of Plastic Surgery as I think he is the best!!

Dr. Taleisnik made my whole breast augmentation a wonderful experience! His expertise, years of experience, and honesty gave me the assurance that he was the right doctor for me.

Male Liposuction of the Chest, Abs, Flanks, and Back - Orange, CA

I had liposuction done several years ago and the results were not so good. Not only did I have terrible scarring, but there was very uneven contouring which was noticeable and quite embarrassing.

I was pleased when I met Dr. Taleisnik as he provided me with better service than any other doctor I...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Great Results! - Orange, CA

I am so happy and proud to say that I have a wonderful new set of breasts since having my breast augmentation done by Dr. Andres Taleisnik in April 2013. Over the past six months, I have been doing research online and had two consultations from surgeons recommended by some friends. Neither of those surgeons gave me the reassurance I needed to go forward with surgery. They were either too high-priced or the doctor-patient relationship was lacking. Even though each of them was highly skilled, I did more research and came upon Dr. Taleisnik – my 3rd consultation. His consultation was different than my prior two. He was thorough, professional, down to earth, explained WHY he was recommending one approach over the other options, and took the time to get to know ME as a patient to ensure I got the result I was looking for. My boyfriend and I left the consultation knowing he was the surgeon for me, as he had my best interest and goals in mind. He was genuinely caring, and his pricing very affordable!! My surgery results are awesome and much better than I ever expected. My boyfriend says my breasts are PERFECT and he wouldn’t change a thing – nor would I! They are perfectly shaped, symmetrical, scars healing well and hidden (I went inframammary/silicone), and I’m having a smooth recovery. I tell everyone I know (and you readers) what a fabulous job he did from beginning to end. I highly recommend Dr. Taleisnik, and if you select him as your surgeon, you will be glad you did. I'm sure you will love the results as I do! Thank you, Dr. Taleisnik, for my beautiful breasts!!!
