45 Year Old Single Mom and Recent Gla-Ma!! - San Francisco, CA

I've waited 20 years to have this procedure. I'm a single mom. I live an active life and think I just needed that extra little something to get me where I've always wanted to be. I've gone from a size 14 an fitting into a size 10. I'm extremely happy. I now have something to work harder for!! So happy.

Wonderful Results - San Francisco, CA

From beginning-to-end the entire process was extremely smooth and comfortable. It was an absolute pleasure to work with this doctor. I felt like he listened to me, provided guidance on how to get the results I was looking for, and was both thoughtful and kind all the way through. The entire staff at this facility is so friendly and they really took care of me. I have to say, I am also REALLY...

41 Year Old Mom of 2, Needed to Feel Like Her Old Self Again - San Francisco, CA

After having had two pregnancies during which I had gained 80+ pounds each, I had lost a lot of weight and stretched my skin quite a bit. No amount of exercise was helpful and I simply wasn't comfortable getting into a swimsuit. I had gotten down to a size 4 and yet, couldn't enjoy it because ultimately, outside of my clothes, I felt terrible about the way I looked. I knew that I didn't want...

Getting Rid of a Double-chin + Other Benefits! San Francisco, CA

Dr. Anthony came highly recommended to me by my dermatologist, so I had positive expectations from the outset. I found Dr. Anthony to be an enthusiastic & empathetic professional who encouraged me to undertake this project as a form of self-renewal. The surgery itself was entirely stress-free & painless, and Dr. Anthony has been available to me for consultation during the post-operative period...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Breast Enhancement. San Francisco, CA

After seeing my many friends that had breast augmentation with Dr. Anthony, I had to have the look. I went for it, and I must say, "I look amazing" I love watching the men's head turn when I'm walking down the beach. Better yet, I love the way I look in clothes now it makes me feel so much more confident and I am stunning. I am so happy:)

1 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Botched Breast Surgeries by Dr. James Anthony - San Francisco, CA

When I met Dr. James P. Anthony who advertises as being voted the Top in the Nation, I felt that I was finally in good hands of a trustworthy doctor. I told him my story of a previous breast augmentation that left me with symmastia. I pleaded that if there is no hope of fixing my symmastia, I want the implants removed so that I can go back to living a normal life again. He told me that he...

I'm ecstatic, my knees and arms were done today with ThermiTight, I'm very confident I'll finally look terrific and not like a prune and my arms that jiggles and wiggles back and forth like jello, will be gone. My outlook and self confidence will soar and I'll be the best me I can be all due to Doctor Anthony, what a God send. The ThermiTight procedure, produces fantastic results, and the...

Bad Lipo and uneven breast implants:(

I had breast implant surgery, and lipo with Anthony several years ago. My breast implants were placed over/under the muscle. They are uneven, and there is much more fullness on top of one of the breast. The Lipo was a bust. Uneven and rippling. He did one revision, and it still sucks. My self esteem has suffered greatly. He is very nice and smooth, I wish he stood behind his work. Do...

5 out of 5 stars Skin Tightening

Thermi-Va and Lipo-Sculpting. - San Francisco, CA

I had a skin tightening of my abdominal area by DR James Anthony as we all know when we get older our skin relaxes. He pulled the skin tighter and also did some stellar lipo-sculpting in the stomach area , around my thighs and bra line. Since I am a 61 year old female, I decided to have him perform the Thermi-Va on me. This procedure is amazing as I saw the difference immediately with...

60 Yr Old Needing Some Sculpting That the Gym Can't Fix - San Francisco, CA

I am very happy with the results from the best doctor I have found after doing much research for lipo-sculpting. I have tried healthy eating,, working out 4-5 days a week and swimming 3-4 times a week. There are some places on a woman's body, esp after hitting the fabulous age of 60, that needs some sculpting. I even tried "cool-sculpting" from another office, but it did not work on me. I had...
