Dreams Do Come True! - San Diego, CA

Dreams do come true at 52! Thank you Dr. Diana Briester Ghosh for changing my life. No words can express the gratitude I have with my new self.

My breast hung badly and my nipples (areolas) were so big. I was very self-conscious. Your...

46 Year Old Mother of 2 Adult Children Getting Her Life Back - San Diego, CA

Hi I chose to get a TT because I have two adult children and I wanted to get my life and body back. It was my life's dream to just look normal again after giving birth to two large babies ( 9.8 and 9.10) 23 and 24 years ago. I dreamed of having a stronger core to workout and support my back, and to stop being ashamed of my body and to discover me again. I was referred to Dr. Diana Breister...

Dijon's makeover: TT, lipo thighs/flanks and breast lift/enlargement

I am scheduled for a Tummy Tuck, Breast Lift/Enlargement, Lipo of flanks and upper thighs. I've done tons of research and picked Dr. Breister Ghosh. Just wondering if anyone has heard anything about her. OF course, I'm very nervous about going into surgery. I've only had my tonsils removed when I was 5. LOL. I'm looking for anyone who she has worked her magic on! Would love to read...

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

sooooo worth it!!!! San Diego, CA

I had to post bc if I had let all the negative posts on recovery/pain I read on here influence me, I would have cancelled. However, I had previously had an Upper Eyelid Lift and Breast Reduction in which the recovery was so no big deal, so I was hoping my Lipo recovery would be the same. I want to share, so others may not get scared away. Background on me: I'm 46. 125 lbs. Crazy workouts...

58 Year Old Single Male! San Diego, CA

I was not happy with the way I looked in the mirror. I lost weight, had sagging skin & fat under my neck. I also had bags under my eyes! I cannot say enough about Dr. Breister Ghosh. She did a fantastic transformation for me. And she is a very down-to-earth and a very nice person. Uncommon for Drs.

48 Year Old Mom of 2 C-section 9 Lb Boys... Wants Her Sexy Body Back - San Diego, CA

Dr. Diana Breister Ghosh will be performing my Mommy Makeover (TT w/ BL) on December 18. I'm a month out and not really thinking much about it. I've recently been laid off and I'm not sure if it's a good thing or bad that it happened just before the surgery. My Ex-SOB left me because I was overweight and didn't want anything to do with me after 2 kids and 23 years of marriage. I have...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

41 yr

I was originally a size A and had 520 cc saline implants placed in. I just had them removed and replaced with 220 cc saline implants with a breast lift. The current breast implants were far to big with my frame; 5'2 and 110 pounds. My neck/back always hurt/soar and I felt tired most of the time. When I would run on my days off; I would have to wear 2 tight sport bras and the massive size...

Excellent Surgeon, Highly Satisfied with Results! - San Diego, CA

Dr. Breister carried out an earlobe reduction surgery on me a month ago. Her work was superb and was beyond any of my expectations.
