5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
I don't even know where to start. This site has was my saving grace from the time i first seriously considered getting an abdominoplasty until-- well now. I still like to check back here and see how other people feel and look at the same post op marks that i am at. I am 29 years old and i am 5' 1'. I started gaining weight around high school and reached my highest weight (not counting...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction
FABULOUS!! WONDERFUL!! KNOWLEDGABLE!! AMAZING!!! Dr Dean has been awesome from the day I met him at my consultation appointment!! He made me feel very comfortable, answered all my questions without rushing me and explained throughly and made sure I understood everything before leaving. I had expanders put in by him after having a double mastectomy because I'm positive for BRCA1 cancer gene....
1 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery
I wanted some minor improvements to the wrinkles under my eyes, I had a hump on my nose and it was crooked from being broken, and I wanted a reduction from a DD to a C. I had a horrible experience and I look much worse than before. My breasts were not reduced at all, just minorly lifted so all I really got was scars. He told my family members after that I did not have any fat to remove so he...
1 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction
I went to Dr. Dean for a double mastectomy and immediate reconstruction. He did not complete the operation and I was left with only the mastectomy. Months later, he performed reconstruction. My breasts were uneven and as hard as rocks. I was in constant severe pain. He told me I would have to wait a year for the final result which another surgeon told me was untrue, that they don't get...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction with Latissimus Flap
I was diagnosed with Stage 3A Breast Cancer on March 30, 2015. Dr. Dean and his staff were brought in as my reconstructive surgeon and it was a wonderful choice. He was there for my very first mastectomy surgery. He installed a tissue expander and preformed a breast reduction so I would not be lopsided while undergoing chemo and radiation. He and his staff are very compassionate and caring. ...
5 out of 5 stars Liposuction
Dr. Dean and his staff of Angels are exactly like eating potato chips, so good you have to go back for more!!
Hi I just wrote a 2 year update but since somehow I have missed this review page I will try to sum it up.I will begin by saying I have ZERO idea why I put "unsure"after my procedure in 2014...I was NOT!! To back that up, I have had 2 more surguries done by Dr.Dean and now fillers. You can click on my name and see the long update I gave about this VERY SPECIAL SURGEON and his WONDERFUL STAFF! I...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
I liked Dr.Dean from the beginning. He was realistic and confident at my consult. He is an experienced surgeon with a great bedside manner. I am very happy with my outcome at only 2 weeks post op. I know the appearance will continue to improve even more. I am very grateful for a subtle but confidence boosting procedure done by a great surgeon!
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
Dr. Dean came highly recommended. He is very kind and informative. I found him to spend more than an adequate amount of time answering questions and explaining the pros and cons of the different options available to me. His nurse was also very kind and informative. I would recommend Dr. Dean to anyone.
5 out of 5 stars Body Lift
28 Year Old Male -- Body Lift, brachioplasty, gynecomastia, abdominoplasty. 479lbs -- 230lbs -- 215lbs. Baton Rouge, LA
Weighing in at 479lbs, I had gastric bypass in June of '09. After losing over 250lbs, I had an abdominoplasty, brachioplasty, gynecomastia and body lift, in Dec '15. It has been a tough, worthwhile journey that I've been videoing https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLzTXH4d6mJ83bTxEO-SpsVFK0d4u6XrDV
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
After I had my children I was left with very little breast tissue and did not feel very feminine in my clothes. I went to see Dr Dean to inquire about a breast augmentation. I am extremely pleased with my results. My experience from preop to postop couldn't have gone smoother. I now feel confident in my clothes and so glad that I had this surgery.
I am in my 25th year of practice in Baton Rouge. I continue to offer the latest and most advanced techniques in both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. I speak directly about the risks and benefits of surgery, so that patients' expectations are met with both safety and excellence.
