5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

The Most Amazing Plastic Surgeon and Person! - Tampa, FL

Dr. Raj Ambay is an amazing plastic surgeon, doctor and person. He has been working with me closely since my bilateral mastectomy two years ago and I can sincerely say he truly cares about his patients. From our first meeting, he has been very upfront and honest with me, not only about what to expect, but what not to expect. He spent the time to explain every procedure, answer all of my...

My Honest Experience with Dr. Ambay! - Tampa, FL

I was diagnosed with breast cancer and felt totally devastated! I was a very private and modest person and my "femininity" was very important to me. The thought of having a bil. mastectomy crushed me! Dr. Ambay was absolutely wonderful answering all of my and my husbands questions, drawing pictures,etc. It's been over a year now since my reconstruction with Dr. Ambay and I couldn't...

5 out of 5 stars Scars Treatment

Impeccable Care and Expertise - Tampa, FL

I didn't name the procedure above because I'm either not familiar with the medical terminology, or it wasn't available in this site's pull-down menu. The procedure included flap surgery as well as skin grafts to repair a massive, open wound from a previous injury. This surgery was complicated even further due to damaged blood vessels restricting blood flow to the injured area.

31 Yrs Old, Two Kids and Some Wrinkles! - Wesley Chapel, FL

I've been self conscious for nine years!! Today, only one week after my breast augmentation and mini tummy tuck I am full of confidence!! When I went in for my consult I was there for three hours because Dr. Ambay answered EVERY question I had! I could have left sooner but he took his time and explained everything, he did not rush me:) I did not even go for a second opinion! I didn't want to...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Professional Yet Personal Experience - Wesley Chapel, FL

My experience with the staff and with the doctor was one of comfort and relaxed in the decision that I had made from the very beginning. The procedure was exactly what was explained to me and myself and my husband felt immediately comfortable voicing any questions or concerns. Dr. Ambay makes you feel like you are his only patient and your happiness is his. I would recommend him to everyone if...

The Best Plastic Surgeon - Not to Mention Extremely Humble - Tampa, FL

I gained 40lbs from cortisone shots given to me, it was also given to me orally (I had two spine surgeries). I was a little nervous about getting liposuction done but I knew I would be depressed if I did not get the fat off fast. I went online and found Dr. Ambay. We met for a consultation. I have NEVER met such an amazingly humble doctor. He talked to me about the procedure step by step....

I Do Not Know What It Cost Totally Covered by my VA Insurance - Tampa, FL

After 18 years of not having an implant I met Dr Amby at the Tampa VA Center. Due to waiting so long after my mastectomy, it was a big and nervy decision as it would take 3 surgeries. Dr. Amby was the most clamming and reassuring person I have ever met. We had several meetings and set up what was needed to reconstruct my breast. Dr. Amby did a trans flap taking skin and muscle from my back...

Prophylactic Double Mastectomy with Diep Flap Reconstruction - Wesley Chapel, FL

I am so beyond pleased with my whole experience with Dr Ambay and his staff. I am a 25 yo brca neg and breast cancer free patient. I would not have trusted my health or body with anyone else. I knew once I met him that he was the perfect doctor for me. He talked to me honestly, money is not his motive.. making you whole again is! He will spend as much time as you need explaining, showing...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Truly Amazing Surgeon! - Wesley Chapel, FL

I can not express enough how highly of an amazing surgeon Dr. Ambay is! He was the fifth Plastic Surgeon I consulted with regarding having my Saline Implants revised. I had undergone a Breast implant surgery that I was very unsatisfied with due to a number of reasons, the main ones being the size of my implants and position of how they sat. I consulted with multiple surgeons in the Tampa bay...

DIEP Flap Reconstruction After Implant Failure - Wesley Chapel, FL

Dr. Ambay is, without any doubt at all, a superhero. He is kind and compassionate, from the moment he shakes your hand. The office and the staff are exquisite. But Dr. Ambay is a superstar. I am a complicated patient - I was a higher-risk breast reconstruction patient. I had had the traditional implant route fail, and I went to Dr. Ambay as a last resort to try to feel like myself one...
