5 out of 5 stars Gender Reassignment Surgery

We call him the Wizard for a reason!

I travelled all of the way from Wisconsin just to see Dr. Sassani! He is more than brilliant and amazing! I owe him so much! From our very first interaction to now being over 1 week post-op he has been there to answer all of my questions. He is extremely attentive and is the kindest man and surgeon! This was my first surgery so I was nervous. He and his staff made me feel so safe and secure...

Breast Reduction with Lift from 38G to 38C/D - Plantation, FL

Dr. Sassani was clear that he could not give me a definitive cup size because each bra manufacturer has different standards i.e.) In a Warners bra I could be a C cup and in a Maidenform bra I could be a D cup. He left me with a beautiful shape and lovely lift. He's gifted in his craft and is very caring. He has attended to me at every visit and even took my call over the holiday weekend. I would recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Sassani Changed my Life - Plantation, FL

I had a breast reduction on August 10 and I feel and look amazing already. I've had back pain for years because of my oversized G breast. I was so scared and sceptical about under going surgery so I put it off for years. After visiting my gynecologist one day he refered me to Doctor Sassani. Making the decision to do the surgery was so nerve wrecking, I was so scared. But after meeting Dr....

FTM Double Mastectomy with Liposuction - Plantation, FL

I chose Dr. Sassani becuase I wanted someone that actually cared about the Trans* community and that is exactly what I got. His bedside manner is incredible and although he may seem quiet at times, he really listens to what you have to say and is very professional. He a straight forward doctor which is also what I wanted and has a very steady hand which is shown through the symmetry of my incisions. Being postoperative, he has continued to keep up with me and make sure all is well which is deeply appreciated and he really is the wizard!
