"He is up front with you on what to expect out of the implants with our body shape too." "I wanted a breast augmentation and the size she and Dr. thought would look best, (that I worried would be too big for me) ended up being spot-on PERFECT." "Since meeting the staff and having my breast reduction surgery, I have become impressed even more."

Getting Implants Removed After 25 Years! - Santa Barbara, CA

I found him on the Real Self website. My post op with a nurse was a little disappointing. I'm going back in two days for follow up so I'll report again after that. The nurse was late and then seemed flustered and unprepared. She taped me up very sloppily, didn't even have scissors to cut the tape so the tape was extra long and went way above and below where it needed to go. Hopefully things will be better Wednesday. Dr. MacKenzie was fantastic, and so is Lisa Glenny, his coordinator. My second post op with same PA was much better this time. I think the fact that I didn't almost pass out this time, made things better for her too. She removed the tape, cleaned the site and retaped very neatly. Good experience!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

A Good Experience :) - Santa Barbara, CA

how i chose him? i saw a couple surgeons online and made a couple consults with diff surgeons and i ended up liking dr mackenzie the best so i went with him and i don't regret it ! The whole office staff is very nice and welcoming, the only con for me was not seeing him as much as i wanted too post op, but i understand he's a busy surgeon and all. But other than that i would definitely recommend dr mackenzie :)

Made my Procedures Incredibly Comfortable - Santa Barbara, CA

I searched four years for the right doctor to do two things that i always dreamt about, but after seeing horrible or less than perfect result on friends and celebrities and what not I can definately say I was cautious to say the least. I found out about him through many friends who he did work on which is the best why to find a surgeon. He was caring and didn't hesitate to answer all my questions no matter how rediculous they were.We discussed what I wanted and what would be reasonable expectations, generally what would be best for me health wise and cosmetically wise....He preformed my brest aug and more important to me my rhinoplasty. I could not be happier with my results. Dr. M is a very intelligent meticulous surgeon nd thank god he is young because I expect to be returning to him for anything and everything else in the future because I'm a perfectionist and Dr. M is the only doctor I trust.

My experience was great! - Santa Barbara, CA

Dr. Mackenzie is a fantastic surgeon. I have been his patient since 2006. I returned to him to discuss my options for a ruptured implant and other things I had in mind, but wasn't 100% sure if I could afford or would follow thru with. He and his staff have always been so helpful and trustworthy. I am 3 weeks post-op with brand new Sientra breast implants which I find to really like more than...
