Dr. Desai is extremely professional, helpful, attentive, kind, and talented! He truly is the best surgeon and I highly recommend him to anyone considering cosmetic surgery. I felt very comfortable with him as my surgeon. I will definitely be returning to him in the future whenever my implants need to be replaced.

65 and It's Really Going to Happen!! Jacksonville, FL

Ladies, let me tell you something!! I had my breast reduction surgery on March 21st of this year (2016). My surgeon was Dr. Ankit Desai. My primary doctor gave me a referral to see him. Being the thorough person that I am, I made a list of other plastic surgeons because "everyone" said one should get at least three opinions before making a decision. So, I went to see Dr. Desai at Florida Plastic Surgery. First, the staff was the kindest, most helpful and thoughtful of any medical office I've dealt with in my 65 years. I met with Dr. Desai, he assessed my situation, answered all of my questions, explained EVERYTHING he would do, all while putting me at ease with none of the embarrassment I expected. I didn't even bother with the other doctors on my list. I knew right away that if I was going to have this surgery, he would be the one to do it!!the staff helped me with assembling the required paperwork to submit for approval from my insurance. They were great at that, too. Submitted on Tuesday and approved on Thursday of the same week!! My surgery went great; no drains, no stitches and minimal discomfort for 3-4 weeks!! I'm now seven months out and feel amazingly better than I have in years!! Ladies, if you've thought about this surgery, you've done it more than once. Don't wait, go for it!! I just wish I'd done it 30 years ago!!

5 out of 5 stars Arm Lift

Arm Lift - Jacksonville, FL

This was my second set of procedures with Dr. Desai and I am just as thrilled with my results as I was the first time. Dr. Desai is not only an exceptionally talented surgeon, but extremely patient-centered with excellent bedside manner. I was very specific about where I wanted the placement of my brachioplasty scar, which was not in the traditional location. I drew a line on my arm with a sharpie, sent multiple pictures, and reiterated a few dozen times the importance of getting the scar in exactly the right position so that it can’t be seen from the front or from the back. The scar had to be perfect- a few millimeters in the wrong direction and it would have been more visible than I wanted. I woke up from surgery and my arms were not only beautifully contoured but the scar is exactly where I asked it to be placed with a very thin, quickly fading scar line, that I imagine will be barely visible in a year or so. As was the case with the first surgery I had, there was virtually no pain involved in the recovery process and follow-up care was fantastic. Outside of being an awesome surgeon, Dr. Desai also has a truly wonderful staff that have been consistently professional, polite, and helpful beyond expectations. I highly recommend this surgeon and office not just because the results are phenomenal, but because I could not ask for a more respectful, more attentive, or more competent group of people to work with during this process.

33 Years Old, 3 Beautiful Children, and Finally Getting my BA! Jacksonville, FL

I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Desai and his staff. Every step of the procedure (consultation, anxiety over choosing a size, a plethora of questions emailed to his patient coordinator, the surgery and staff at the surgical center, and the recovery) my expectations for Dr. Desai have been exceeded. I have been impressed with every step! I went to two other consultations and even though I am sure they are wonderful doctors also, I feel so confident I chose the right Dr. for me.
