5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

20 Year Old Breast Reduction - Pleasanton, CA

I am 20 years old and really hated the idea of going under the knife so young. I had a bi-lateral breast reduction that took me from a large 34E to a 34 C/D cup. Since puberty I have had back problems, frequent headaches and a lot of trouble with sports. I just had my surgery 2 months ago with Dr. Bachelor and I am wearing bathing suits from target and victoria secret like I have always...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Breast Mx and Subseqent Reconstuction Surgeries - Pleasanton, CA

My experience with Dr. Bachelor (and his staff) has spanned over 2 years from the time he co-performing my left breast Mx (due to cancer- 8/2012) to surgery on my right breast (5/2014) to match my left reconstruction. During a very scary and traumatic diagnosis, Dr. Bachelor remained calm and flexible. Nothing is too difficult for him to manage. He is professional, knowledgeable, and compassionate, and he is an artist. He worked very hard to get me into an implant study so that I didn't have to go down in breast size (something that was traumatic in itself to me). I am so grateful of all the work he and his staff did to allow me to participate in the study. He fully informed me of all the various options for my reconstruction. Dr. Bachelor makes me feel comfortable and he encouraged me to complete all my cancer treatments before tackling reconstruction. He is never rushed and always supportive of whatever timing I need whether it was for cancer treatment, or more importantly my emotional readiness. I was able to put on my first bikini this past weekend with confidence. I am a cancer survivor that he helped make me whole again.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

38, Mother of Three. Tummy Tuck + Lipo

I had my first child at 19 and as a result had numerous stretch marks. My body type has always in the past been flat tummy, narrow torso, big hips and thighs. At 25 I found out after gaining 60 pounds in 6 months that I have hypothyroidism. It took me 3 years but I lost the 60 but was left now with stretch marks and a lovely apron of skin from the weight gain. At 33 I had my second child. I...

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Smooth Process, Wonderful Recovery, Delightful Result - California

I had seen several of Dr. B's surgical results. I liked the way his facelift looked natural and fresh. My choice of him as a surgeon was based on his training and his skill and passion for his specialty. He has a certified surgical facility where I felt like my safety and comfort were paramount. I also felt his surgery suite was based on his needs to perform at his best level. My care from beginning to end was wonderful.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

Female 26 - Pleasanton, CA

I have so much to say about my experience with Dr. Eric P. Bachelor, Eastbay Aesthetic Surgery.

Dr. Bachelor was fantastic, explained the procedures that were necessary for me to have my breasts the same. My left breast was a size B, and my right was a size C, I...
