5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

37 Year Old with Pancakes for Breasts After 3 Kids and Weightlifting - Metairie, LA

Dr Sands performed a breast augmentation, liposuction of flanks and scar revision with removal of dog ears from a previous adominoplasty 5 years ago . He has excellent bedside manners. He's very thorough when explaining and also patient when answering questions. I'm also a healthcare provider and because of that can be overly anxious and needy with requests and questions. He's always been very understanding accomadating. It's been 8 weeks since my surgery and most of the time, I forget I've had it done because my breasts look and feel so natural. I'm using scar cream that he ordered from a pharmacy so my scar is still healing but I'm already impressed with the location of it and I'm happy with how much it's fading in color and thickness already. I have no more dog ears and my waist is contoured perfectly. Everything went very smooth from start to finish . I like the fact that he's young. His office staff is excellent and very friendly. I've never had a long wait time and his staff makes everyone feel like there special. My surgery was done at Houma outpatient and the staff there did a phenomenal job as well. My surgery was done the day before thanksgiving and he actually met me at his office thanksgiving morning because he believes in doing next day follow ups no matter the date. He anticipated every post op need by providing me within a ample amount of postop medicine to ensure my recovery was tolerable. I'm very happy with my results. Dr Sands makes you feel very comfortable, safe and at ease.
