5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

So Happy when the Cast Came off

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction Revision

Highly Skilled Plastic Surgeon

I am so excited to say that I finally have success after 6 Breast revisions for Capsular contraction. Dr. Chaffoo is a highly skilled surgeon and he recommended using Strattice for my revision. I have had many plastic surgeons but I have never met a more skilled, detailed oriented and kind and caring surgeon. He has skilled nurses and staff that makes you feel like your family.

Very smooth

I had a nose job in mud oct 2016. I am very happy with the whole process from the beginning to the end and most importantly the results. I also really liked that after the surgery I had dr personal phone number to call in case of emergency. I had sort of emergency, I started bleeding too much and my packing came out. So I called and he gave me some tips and was willing to meet me and check...

Lovely Results, Difficult Recovery! - La Jolla, CA

I really like Dr. Chaffoo. He's triple board certified, if that matters to you, and he's got a great bedside manner. He's also always just a text or a phone call away and I loved that because I can be high maintenance ;) His office staff are all really great as well. I've even made friend with the valet at the medical building, lol! I honestly don't have one major complaint. It's been a great experience!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Breast Lift W/ 485cc Inspira Implants for athletic 5'5" 150lbs 34C to 34DDD - La Jolla, CA

Dr. Chaffoo' educational background and triple board certification is impressive, but beyond that, he has the best bed side manner of any doctor I have ever met. He's so calm and reassuring. His staff is excellent as well. The entire process has been so positive I will be back for more procedures as needed. The only slight negative has been a few long wait times for my appointments because Dr. Chaffoo was in surgery longer than his staff had anticipated or caught in the terrible SoCal traffic. However, that's my only complaint and it's no big deal. Do yourself a favor and schedule a consultation with this fantastic doctor!

4 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

300cc and Possible Capsular Contracture Yikes! - San Diego, CA

During my first visit everything was excellent. Went with my gut feeling and decided that same day to go with Dr. Chaffoo. Now my follow ups are very short and quick. I guess since I am having issues with one of my implants (CC) I am freaking out and they are very calm about this whole process. I would like more reassurance or time from them thoroughly explaining the whole process and what the game plan is, if there is one.

There is no recent activity.
