5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Top Notch

I had a closed rhinoplasty one year ago. I waited an entire year to write my review to share my end results online in this review. I have to say that I LOVE my nose. I've gained a new confidence in my appearance not to mention a renewed self-esteem. Dr. Bashioum is patient and kind, even when I walked him through numerous photos of wish noses. The office staff is friendly and always remembers...

Rhinoplasty and Septoplasty...Extremly disappointed with the results

For many years I had wanted to get a nose job and when I finally decided to get it done I was so disappointed with my results. He performed an closed rhinoplasty which was never discussed. After he took off the cast my nose was very wide. I went to my 6 month post op and told him I thought my nostrils were very wide after he had lifted the tip of my nose. He told me it was fine but if i wanted...

2 out of 5 stars Fat Transfer

To with Fat Transfer to Breasts

I was excited about this procedure. After a year, I still have a fat pouch on my lower abdomen that they didn't get and my breasts are now saggy and fat didn't stay. I feel miserable and disappointed in the results. When I went for my one year post op, they offered a lipo revision of the fat left over for $1000. I cried going home. I still have extra skin as well as love handles that were...

36 Year Old, 2 Kids - Post Gastric Bypasss 5'10 and 139 Lbs - Not So Proud Member of the Itty Bitty Titty Committee. Wayzata, MN

After a couple of consults I have finally picked a surgeon. My surgery date is Feb. 17th. I'm so nervous, excited, and yes... still apprehensive. I had gastric bypass 4 years ago and lost more than my today's total weight. And of course the boobs were first to go. I want to feel sexy and not be embarrassed when I'm intimate with my husband. I know he loves me for me, but I don't feel...

31 Years Old, 3 Kids, Previous Breast Lift. Now Wanting to Restore Lost Volume - Wayzata, MN

Had previous breast lift after my second child 5 years ago under IV sedation and local anesthetic. Since then I've had a third child (he's 2 now). My surgeon said he would perform breast augmentation under dame anesthetic. For some reason I'm very afraid of general anesthesia so any way to avoid it I will. Tried on 400 and 425 ccs and pretty sure I'll go with the 425. Going back in on Nov...

Tummy Tuck and Fat Transfer to Breast - Minneapolis, MN

I expect a dramatic and positive change in my stomach and confidence as I am still very young and hope to be able to wear crop tops and not be worried about my stomach showing!its been 8 years since my first child was born and since then it left stretch marks and excess skin. I have been debating a tummy tuck though because the scar really size really had me on the fence but I looked at many...

3 out of 5 stars Fat Transfer

Just Thought I'd Add a Little Fat to my Lower Eye Area.....BIG MISTAKE - Minneapolis, MN

After deciding to have my breast implants removed after 22 years, I opted to do a fat transfer (fat liposuctioned from my back waist area) to fill in the area which had been previously fill with an implant. As an after thought, I asked my surgeon if he could just put a little around my eyes since the sockets tended to hollow out. I had had filler in the area two previous times with perfect...

ayzata, MN

I had my breast augmentation completed by the same dr so I know that he does an excellent job. The surgery date is scheduled for May 21st. The only thing I am super anxious about is that I won't like the results. Will my stomach be flat???!!?? with this kind of money I sure hope so. And once all the swelling and pain is gone...will i like the results. Those are some major concerns that I...

5 out of 5 stars Nose Surgery

great doctor! - Wayzata, MN

Dr Bashioum and his staff, especially Sandy (coordinator) and Jennifer (scrub nurse) are great. Seeing a plastic surgeon about a cosmetic procedure can be very uncomfortable and embarrassing, but they made me feel at ease. They also check up on you after your procedure and are always available. Everyone is professional and genuine! I love my results. I have had 3 procedures by Dr Bashioum...

Welcoming Staff and Amazing Surgeon! - Edina, MN

I was one of those women who could not make up their mind on what size to get - I went in three times to try on bras but the friendly staff always made you feel welcomed and they didn't mind. I decided on 375cc ( I was a 34 B pre surgery) I could tell when I met Dr. Bashioum he was for me- he was honest and wasn't trying to sell me the procedure. I went from a B cup to D cup and I am in my 5th...
