5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Great experience!!

Dr. Allen is a great surgeon. Before surgery he answered all my questions and he discussed the surgery thoroughly. He and his staff are very friendly and made me feel comfortable. After surgery, he called and checked on my healing process, as well as gave me multiple numbers where he could be reached. Low and behold, I called him on Christmas day with a question and he picked up and...

Took the leap, didn't quite fly.... San Leandro, CA

Easy energy, weird combination of professional but also kinda was the poster-guy for "that plastic surgeon" - not in a bad way, but just felt like I was in a funky office that belonged on strip mall in Palm Springs rather than the Bay Area. But hey, he's got 20+ years experience, works at Highland Hospital, board certified and seems to have happy customers. Plus I didn't find any flags. In fact I appreciated that he took the time to ask the questions that were pertinent not just to the reduction, but to the emotional/psychosocial aspect of the update, less than thrilled with the final result so it's harder to be as objective as I should be. He's been good about responding to me if I have concerns, but I also feel like unless I push those concerns he's quick to brush them off (like my DVT). So I don't know. Hard to say until it's all over how I feel.

Excellent experience. Staff was very professional and Dr Allen spends as much time as you need to discuss questions and concerns.

**** RESEARCH ON HIS LICENSE, CREDITIALS,AND EXPERIENCE. LOOKING FOR SOMEONE CLOSE TO HOME. I was disappointed that Dr Allen did not call to check on my after surgery. He gave me his personal cell number and office number on my at home instructions. He did not come see me in recovery either.So his rating for bedside manner and after care gets him low rating, but i plan to tell him about this. I looked for a Board certified plastic surgeon closer to home. I had a breast aug in 2005 by a very good surgeon but it was about 20 miles from home. Dr Zandi was listed as Bay Area best doctor in the top 25. My friend who is a surgical assistant worked with him before and they were right he did an excellent job. I qualified for silicone implants at the time as my tublular breasts were considered deformed. My Ps said he did alot of work on me, creating a pocket. By law i was to be seen every year. By the third year the PS took pictures and asked if he could use them when he teaches since he was impressed on how well they came out. I decided that since my PS was older and should have retired like he said 3 years earlier, I Needed a fresher younger surgeon. I discovered Dr Daniel B Allen. He learned a technique by swedens that requires no drains! He is also a Dr who associates at a local trauma emergency hospital. I got my consult in his office just to interview him as i spoke got two other consults. The second consult I took my husband and he was very patient and explained wound care and other questions, including costs if we werent happy.
