5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

25 Year Old Fitness Competitor - Raleigh, NC

I absolutely love lifting and competing in figure competitions, but I've always been a little on the smaller side even before my body fat started to drop. Once I got serious about weight lifting, my chest was the first thing to go. I didn't want to give up my love for lifting, but I did want that feminine side to it back. I didn't want huge DD, just a full C that would help to narrow out my...

Active 22 Yr Old, in Need of Being Comfortable "Down There" - Chapel Hill, NC

Didn't start my review in time, I don't even have a before picture ! Maybe my doctor has one. With all that being said it is day number 2 post op for me. The only time I have had any discomfort was mid of the night, but I just took a pain killer and I was fine! To this 2nd day the most uncomfortable thing is wearing a pad, I can't remember the last time I've worn one. I'd say.. if that's the...

27, Two Little Girls, 116, 5'2 Team COAN!!!! - Durham, NC

So I have been on this site since 2013 reading everyone's great journeys and waiting for the day I could share mine! So after a ton of consultations and research I thought I had found my Dr. (Dr.fisher) and schedule my surgery for January 2016, as it got closer to my surgery day my husband came across some bad reviews on yelp and I found a link to nbc miami investigation with vanity cosmetic...

A Master of His Trade -- Great Experience - Santa Monica, CA

I was referred to Dr. Coan from two people -- my gynecologist recommended him, and later a good friend whose husband is a surgeon also recommended him highly. I liked that two separate doctors recommended. From beginning to end my experience was nothing short of picture perfect. He answered all my questions. I really looked to Dr. Coan for advice and guidance and he exceeded all my expectations along with staff. I felt comfortable instantly and he really guided me throughout the entire process. From consultation to post-op Dr. Coan and his staff made sure I was taken care in all aspects. I simply could not have asked for a better experience for my breast augmentation and full tummy tuck.

64 Yrs, Corset Tummy Tuck - Durham, NC

I had a great experience at my consultation with Dr. Coan, who will perform a "corset" tummy tuck on me April 12. I'll have an overnight hospital stay because of my age and medical history. He inspired confidence in me and my husband, who enjoyed comparing notes on their shared alma mater, MIT. Now if I could only sleep for 7 weeks and wake up to surgery day, all would be perfect. Posting a...

Needing a Pick Me Up After Nursing for 4yrs! - Durham, NC

Worth every penny!! Dr Coan and his staff are the best out. My consultation was so great, my surgery was easy, my recovery was super quick, and follow up meetings felt like I was back to being a sexy mom/women in no time! I would recommend Dr Coan to any of my friends and family. I still continue to go back for other services... I love it there!

Renewed AND Refreshed!! - Durham, NC

I had my surgery (brow and eyes) done on my birthday, as a gift from me - to me! I was turning 65 and was in a panic, in dismay. Over the previous 6 months, it seemed like my face just started to sag and hang - and it's the first thing people see. I knew it wasn't going to get better and that it would get increasingly worse as each day passed. When I went to see Dr. Coan, I told him I...

I Love Dr. Coan! - Durham, NC

Dr. Coan is a truly gifted plastic surgeon who’s changed my and my daughter’s lives. I rarely write reviews, but had to share about both my and my daughter’s exceptional results. First I went to see him because my daughter works in the medical field and had researched on who to see. Of course we both liked that he is double board certified and all his awards. I immediately felt right at ho...

I Am 1 Day Post Op Draining my Implants - Durham, NC

Hi, I have had 300cc saline implants under the muscle for 12 years. I have never been truly happy with them. I asked for a full B cup and ended up with full C cups. I am very petite and the breasts were way two big for my frame. A few weeks ago I started having terrible breast pain. I went to the PS yesterday and he said I had CC in both breasts and the only way to relieve the pain was to...

Great Experience - World Class Doctor - Durham, NC

My motivation? Looking in a mirror after having had my children. So no surprise that the tummy tuck I had done was excellent. I am now recuping from breast lift - wonderful experience.
