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.

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 losing a lot of weight and feeling desperate to get my life back, I was unsure what path to go down. I tired Smart Lipo, believing it could tighten my skin, and be non-invasive and produce quick results. It didn't do anything! It was a horrible disappointment and a waste of money. It actually created major trust issues for me. But, because I was determined, I reluctantly set out to interview PS, all who offered suggestions, but none who said that I would likely get the results that I really wanted - until I met Dr. Anthony. He was calm, genuine, nurturing and most of all, confidant. He WOULD get me back into a swimsuit and WOULD get me back into my life again. He listened to my story, appreciated my concerns and fears, validated my experiences, and then told me that he felt that he could do what the others said that they could not do. I knew right away, he was the Dr. for me. Dr. Anthony's staff was over-the-top amazing and friendly and caring, texting me during off-hours to ensure that I was okay- making me feel important. And Dr. Anthony himself was a calming presence throughout the process, making me feel like anything I was going through was going to be okay, and that I had so much to look forward to and be excited about. My surgery was easily and quickly scheduled and all of the accommodations surrounding the surgery were flawless, including the staff at the surgery center - who were amazing- seriously, amazing. I cannot say enough about this Doctor, his staff and the experience itself. I would not go anywhere else EVER again, and would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Anthony to anyone who would ask.

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

Dr. Anthony has always displayed a desire to achieve the desired results. I am amazed by his surgical skills--more like unto a craft. I cannot say I had many pre-surgical questions since I went into his consultation with the decision pretty-much made. This was reaffirmed by the explanations & encouragement I received from Dr. Anthony & his staff, as well as support from my family. Post operative I have found the doctor available & happy to answer questions as well as offering to make slight corrections, were these to be required, which they have not. I am thoroughly satisfied by my experience.

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...

When all is said and done, I was left underwhelmed

My experience with Dr Anthony really felt like "A Tale of Two Doctors." When we met for my initial consultation he seemed very competent and professional and I felt that I was in good hands. He came highly recommended by my dermatologist and all seemed fine. I did liposuction and Thermi on my abdomen, hips, thighs (inner and outer) and my upper arms. I was fairly certain that we had...

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...
