5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

27yr Old, 2 Children, Deflated and Small Tubular Breast Deformity - Santa Rosa, CA

Dr. Furnas was very warm and very informative and caring about my situation. She is very well educated and knows what she is doing. She explained to me that tubular breasts were actually a challenge and enjoyed cases like mine. I had many concerns and even after our surgery date had been set and pre-op done. I started to freak out (Google isn't a good idea sometimes) so I set another appointment so I can talk to her about my concerns and things I read and to explain exactly what it is that I wanted. She completely understood and she was also very honest and real and explained that due to my breasts, I wasn't able to have those "Super Star" breasts everyone wants but she would try her best to do what she could with my situation. I wanted to go bigger but she was honest with me and said it was not a good idea to go bigger as they would not look good and the implant would stick out of the sides. She did amazing and she exceeded my expectations. She took her time with me and I never felt rushed. I asked a million questions and she answered them all with a smile on her face. I trust her recommendations and know that she will do what is best for the patient. A week after my surgery, I went in for my post op appointment. She asked me what I thought. I think she was a bit nervous as she knew how meticulous I was. When I told her, I LOVED them and was thrilled. She was so happy that she lit up completely and even gave me a big hug. I honestly love Dr. Furnas and I recommend her to anyone! She is such a great doctor and has amazing bedside manner and a connection wit her patients. I worked for many doctors in my life and career and Dr. Furnas has one of the best bedside manner and professionalism that I have seen!

"22 Year Old, Unhappy with Breast Shape and Size…looking to Enhance and Upgrade!" - Santa Rosa, CA

Dr. Heather Furnas is by far the sweetest, most caring doctor you could ever hope to find in the medical industry-her care and concern for her patients far surpasses any I have found yet in this field. I am honored to have worked with her and I have seen she has an eye for the 'natural look' and excellence. She is an artist in her work and such goes hand in hand with her professionalism.

36 Years, Breast Fed 3 - Santa Rosa, CA

I decided when I was done breast feeding my last child I would get breast augmentation to get to looking a bit better than I did before kids. My breasts had shrunk dramatically while my weight was pre - baby size. The size difference between breasts had also become more dramatic. I feel that what I wanted from the rice test was perfect. Wearing the rice for hours was great practice. Dr.Furnas...

6 WEEKS PO- Doing well and LOVING my new bubbies!! TT healing well. - Santa Rosa, CA

I chose my doctor as Ive had a procedure done previously (eyes). My daughter also had a procedure from same Drs. The Drs are a husband- wife team and Stanford and Harvard U trained. Beautiful facilities, great staff and very impressive and personable all around. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about them.I had complete confidence in them. They work together and so you have 2 impressive Drs working on you at once which makes the surgery go much faster with less time under anaesthesia. This also gave me added piece of mind. An update at 6 weeks PO- I had a complication with my tummy tuck as I developed a large seroma. Dr Furnas was proactive and scheduled me for surgery 4 days later. I am so impressed with her integrity and the way she took care of the problem immediately. I am now healing well and on the road to recovery. Also my breast augmentation is healing well and they are looking amazing! I am very happy with the care that I recieved. They care about the ultimate results of the work that they do. Wonderful doctors!

Everyone is wonderful. I was a bit nervous and they were with me the whole time before and right after the surgery. Dr Furnas also saw me many times after the surgery to make sure everything was going well. If I ever have another surgery I will definitely go through them.
