Are you a patient of James Shaw, MD?
I went to two plastic surgeons. The first one did not explain things and was rushed. After meeting Dr. Shaw I felt comfortable immediately and knew he was the PS for me.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
I chose Dr Shaw based on location and recommendations from several women in my area. He has a very good reputation and a clean record. He also used the most technical method in determining the appropriate size. First consult- the doctor just eyeballed me and gave a recommendation. Second consult- size recommendation based on base width alone. Dr Shaw uses several measurements to determine a maximum size including your BMI and distance from clavicle to nipple, etc.

Dr. Shaw made me feel comfortable right off the bat. He explained the procedure and answered every question I had. I never felt rushed--he was very patient and professional. I wanted them to look natural so Dr. Shaw took several measurements before helping me pick out what size implant would be best. He said that due to my body proportions my max size for now would be 350cc. We decided to go with 325 cc and I am so happy with them. I had 2 consultations with him before scheduling the surgery. His staff were all extremely kind and helpful. I was extremely nervous the day of surgery, but his nurses made me feel more at ease. I am very satisfied with the staff, the surgery center, and the overall process. I'm elated with my new figure! I would highly recommend Dr. Shaw to anybody looking into breast augmentation.

Still unsure on some aspects

Dr. Shaw did a great job. He made breast reduction as quick and comfortable as possible. He left very minimal scarring.

Dr. Shaw did a full consultation and discussed the probable outcomes that I could expect with my body type etc. And his office was running a discount of 25% off. I felt it was too expensive but my significant other surprised me and said to go for it! And I made an appointment the next day! I met with Lindsay and Jillian to go over my 'areas' and my goals and came up with a game plan including where and how many procedures and size of unit to use. On my abdomen, I had 2 large (1 hr.) and 4 small (30 min) units of treatment. Then 4 small units on my side/back. I did it in 2 sittings. All of the front on one day and then the back about a week later. THEN I repeated it all again about 1 month later for the 2nd round for the best results. Lindsay was the main person administering my treatments and she couldn't have been more accommodating, kind, and gentle!!

Dr Shaw was amazing. He answered every question, even some I didn't think about. I was so nervous the day of until he walked in. His confidence and professionalism are outstanding and you can't help but feel comfortable having a plastic surgeon like that. He was also very friendly and honest. I highly recommend him.
1 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
Dr. Shaw performed a rhinoplasty on me in my late teens. I and am now recovering from my second revision rhinoplasty as a result of his VERY POOR work. My septum became a significant issue (becoming curved) and both of my nostrils were so misshapen that they were angled between 3 and 7 o'clock. This is not an exaggeration. The photos of my nose from the view underneath were angled in the worst possible way. And of course, I still had a rather "prominent" nose, despite the surgery. As a result of Dr. Shaw's work I required 2 revisions to fix the issues. I have now been seen by one of the most recognized facial surgeons in the country to fix the problems. My first surgery to begin correcting the problems took nearly 4 hours- with part of my septum having to be removed, rebuilt and then returned to my nose. In addition, the tip of my nose had to be re-built so as to recreate vertical nostrils. If a doctor's specialty is breast augmentation, he should not, in my opinion, be conducting facial surgery as it requires a different set of skills and level of expertise. I have endured significant pain and financial loss due to my original surgery. As a result, I do not reccomend Dr. Shaw for a rhinoplasty.

I feel like he really listened to me and what I wanted. He answered all questions and I never felt that he was trying to rush the appointment. He has a very laid back and calm presence.
