5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Best in the Bay Area - Bay Area, CA

I can't say enough good things about dr beck. Literally the most easiest and painless experience ever! Didn't feel a thing after surgery just some minor discomfort which is expected. Didn't need to take any of the harsh meds to ease pain, I was good with Tylenol! I love how I am healing and love the results. He knew which size would fit my body best to not make me look so exaggerated and have...

Amazing Experience and Results - Bay Area, CA

Like most men or people who are happy with a service I never write a review. I take this one more serious because these reviews are how I found Dr. Beck. I think plastic surgery reviews are sometimes hard to translate especially the negative ones and I can say ignore them because they must be people who cant be pleased. I Think my experience was amazing for many reasons but best on was he...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Incredible Expirence

Dr. Beck & Staff was absolutely amazing. I am 26 years old, I recently had a breast augmentation. I had a different case as most, my boob shape was a little different than most. I was worried before and after the procedure. They came out wonderful. It has now been two weeks since surgery and I wouldn't have done it with any other doctor. All my questions and concern were answered in a...

Personalized plan for success - Bay Area, CA

What can I say other than excited to share! I had my procedure ~ 6 months ago and I am writing now to share the compliments and improvements I have noticed since my surgery with Dr. Beck. I had a full body lipo that included upper arms, abs, flanks, and inner thighs. This included general anesthesia and one night in the hospital, but I feel that was critical to a quick and smooth recovery...

So glad I went to him!

I I am self conscious about my body especially after having 3 kids so I wanted to do something about it by getting a Brazilian Buttlift so I went on real self, saw Dr. Beck's review, went to see him, and the reviews about him were true. Dr. Beck is AWESOME, he was very respectful, informative about the procedure, and explained what to expect before and after the procedure. Dr. Beck is a true...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

I had an amazing experience!! After four kids, I'm glad I did it!!

Dr Beck is the best!! From the time of consultation to post op visits him and his staff made me feel comfortable. They addressed all my issues and the day of surgery went fantastic. I'm 2weeks post op and healing well. Dr. Beck takes his time and makes me feel like I can call anytime I have any concerns. After talking to three other surgeons, I know I chose the right one!

5 out of 5 stars Brazilian Butt Lift

Life changing.

I' am so happy I did the BBL! I consulted with a few surgeons, but Dr. Beck stood out the most to me. For one reason, he includes a mandatory overnight stay at the hospital for post op care, which at first I didn't see the importance of... I've never had surgery before. But, honestly I don't know what I would've done if I had to go home right after the surgery. I was in pain and could...

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

The PERFECT experience!

Look no further, Dr. Joel Beck is the epitome of plastic surgeons you will find on the west coast. The moment I walked into his offices, I was treated so incredibly well by Dr. Beck and his staff. They listened, treated me with respect and dignity throughout the entire process - pre and post op. Not only was I extremely happy with my results but I came out better than I could have ever imagined.

Price shopping for surgery. Does it really save you money in the long run?

This is an article generated out of the numerous patients seen for revision surgery. Whether it's revision breast surgery, body contouring, or facial surgery, the fact is there are more consultations with patient's who are dissatisfied from their original operations. Why is there an increase incidence with this patient population? I can only speculate, but there are increasing pressures for physicians to attempt to generate more revenue in their practices and this is due to...

Safety with combining Brazilian Butt Lift with Tummy Tuck and Breast Procedures.

I developed this article to help educate potential patients thinking about combining procedures with a Brazilian Butt Lift. The stimulus for this article was to address patient safety as I have had a few potential patients inquire about performing a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, and fat transfer to the butt all at the same time!! They were given this potential surgery option seeing other surgeons in the Northern California community. As you probably already know, there...
