5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

400cc Silicone

Before the surgery, I was a 34A cup and now I'm wearing 34D. I'm so happy with my results, they look and feel very natural. They are the perfect size for my body. I went with a 400cc silicon gel, which ended up being the perfect implant size for my body. My body looks more proportional now then it did before the surgery. I am so glad that I didn't pick a smaller cc size. Dr. Desai was the one...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

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

Well, like many, many others, I've also been lurking on this site for several months. I had my consultation visit with my PS on 12/22/2015. After determining that I was indeed a very good candidate for BR, the documentation collection began. To complicate matters, effective January 1, 2016, my insurance coverage was changing from FL Blue Medicare to AARP United Healthcare. So, actually,...

5 out of 5 stars Thigh Lift

50yr Old Female Who Lost 150lbs and Was in Desperate Need of a Thigh Lift - Jacksonville, FL

Let me first begin by stating that anyone in Jacksonville, FL or within a 200 mile radius should not think twice about selecting Dr. Ankit Desai as their choice of Plastic Surgeon! After having bariatric surgery and loosing 150 lbs I was referred to Dr. Desai by the physician who performed by surgery. It just so happened that my cousin had a total mastectomy and tummy tuck by Dr. Desai and...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

63 Year Old Breast Cancer Reconstruction - Jacksonville, FL

I was nervous concerning the procedure and the healing time. I was a candidate for the DEIP procedure, although it is a long procedure it was well worth it. It seems I had two surgeries that greatly benefited me. This procedure took my own fat from my stomach and used it to form the breast mounds. I now have nice breast and a flat stomach to boot. This is a long procedure but don't let that...

Bilatetal Mastectomy Feel Complete After Surgery - Jacksonville. FL

After having breast cancer twice, I had a bilateral mastectomy. Dr Desai and his staff showed so much compassion and I felt like I was their only patient. After my reconstruction I was immediately pleased and a year later had my3D nipple tattoos. All I can say is WOW! I recommend Dr Desai as a wonderful plastic surgeon.

65 Year Old, 7'year Survivor Od Breast Cancer - Jacksonville, FL

Dr. Desai and his staff ROCK. I was treated with such professionalism and kindness they felt like family. Breast cancer is no fun, but after a bilateral mastectomy done by a different doctor with many, many surgeries following I decided to try Dr. Desai of whom was recommended very highly to me. Dr. Desai consults with you while you are still dressed (a major plus). Listening to you and...

5 out of 5 stars Arm Lift

Arm Lift - Jacksonville, FL

I have both an arm lift and a thigh lift procedure scheduled for the same day with the same doctor, however there are not a ton of reviews for either of these, particularly in my age range, so for the sake of everyone like me who reads through all of these reviews before selecting a provider and deciding on a surgery, I have posted each one individually so the search filters correctly pick up...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

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

I'm taking the plunge! My surgery is scheduled for August 27th. I have been wanting to do this for my entire adult life. I've always been a small 34A at 5'6" weighing about 125. It's never been a good time. I wanted to wait until after we had children and now after breastfeeding my three girls for a year each (oldest is 5 now and our twins are 2) it's my time! I went to three...

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Mom of 2 and Recent Weight Loss of 130 Pounds - Jacksonville, FL

I had gastric bypass in 2012 and lost 130 pounds. I was at the perfect weight but had a heavy apron and saggy small breast. Dr. Desai has changed everything for me! I have a flat stomach and 2 beautiful D cup breast. His office staff has been wonderful from my initial meeting to my ongoing care. I would do it again in a heart beat and highly recommend Dr. Desai to friends and family!
