My experience with Dr. Joel Beck has been very good. He has explained everything to ome in a manner that I could understand with condescension. His professionalism is first rate. Follow up visits have been very pleasant. The staff has always been pleasant and very helpful. Dr. Becks offices are now in Foster City.

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Tummy Tuck/Lift and Augmentation - California, CA

All I can say about Dr. Beck is that he is excellent! My husband agrees. When my husband came with me to my pre-op he walked out saying that he could tell that Dr. Beck was very intelligent and knew what he was doing. What I really respected about Dr. Beck is that he really didnt feel that I needed an augmentation and a lift would be just fine; however, in the end I decided to go with a very small implant for volume and he respected that. I really like his conservative nature and the fact he isnt going to "sell" you what you dont need. Now 2 weeks pre-op it has been proven that Dr. Beck is very knowledgeable and an excellent surgeon with a wonderful bedside manner. Even when I kept asking him the same questions over and over he never once appeared frustrated. I even asked him silly questions that I knew that answer to because I just needed reassurance and still, he was always patient and kind. Also, the entire office staff is warm and welcoming. There is always someone available to answer a question. Jasmine the patient care coordinator is a sweetheart! I was so nervous prior to the surgery; however, once it was all said and done I wasn't as bad as anticipated. The nurses in the surgery center were amazing, non-judgmental, and so accommodating. During the wee hours of the night the nurse and I were alone and I had her all to myself. Having the procedure in the surgery center is great because it is discreet and you don't have to worry about a rush of people coming and going. Two weeks out and my TT and BA/Lift look great and I know that it will just get better and better as the days/weeks go by. Although, it has been mentally and physically challenging depending on others for help and not being able to workout, the reward is amazing. I know that 6 weeks are going to fly by and I will look behind and say wow that went quick! I highly recommend a mommy makeover for anyone that is thinking about it. After 3 pregnancies and a diasits recti all the sit ups in the world couldn't help anymore. I feel that all of the decades of hard work of eating healthy and working out have finally paid off and now I am more inspired to continue to work hard to be healthy and strong I do have to say be prepared to be "down" for at least two weeks and make sure that you have plenty of help.

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...
