65 and It's Really Going to Happen!! Jacksonville, FL

Well, like many, many others, I've also been...

Well, like many, many others, I've also been lurking on this site for several months. I had my consultation visit with my PS on 12/22/2015. After determining that I was indeed a very good candidate for BR, the documentation collection began. To complicate matters, effective January 1, 2016, my insurance coverage was changing from FL Blue Medicare to AARP United Healthcare. So, actually, documentation began then. The insurance coordinator at my PS office, Kristi, went above and beyond to gather the information required. She submitted my paperwork this past Tuesday and we received approval for the surgery TODAY!!!! Cost to me, $0.00... yippee!! The hospital may have a co-pay, not sure about that yet. I am in shock that it happened so quickly. I expected at least a couple of months to fret over the whole thing. The surgery scheduler will call me in the morning to finalize where Dr. Desai will do my procedure. I plan to do pictures of before and after and long the way as well. So I'm glad to be part of this group of compassionate ladies.

My doctor, Dr. Ankit Desai is a miracle worker. That is all I can say, that and I wish I had done this 35 years ago.. If you've been thinking about it,you should do it!!

Mimi is almost seven months out!!! ????????????????????

It's been almost seven months since my surgery. I am so happy with my decision to have this done and also extremely grateful that fate put me in Dr. Desai's oh so capable hands. His staff was beyond extraordinary. Kristi, who worked so very hard to help me get everything submitted to my insurance, is a miracle worker!! She submitted my paperwork on Tuesday and received the approval on Thursday of the SAME WEEK!! Yes, only three days!! Many thanks to the staff there, they all go out of their way to assist in any possible way. I'm telling everyone I talk to that is even mildly interested to go see Dr. Desai, he is truly an artist!! Even the pre-op admitting nurse told me that she wanted her daughter to see Dr. Desai for her BR. How's that for a recommendation?? Thank you again, so very much. ????
Jacksonville Plastic Surgeon

Ladies, let me tell you something!! I had my breast reduction surgery on March 21st of this year (2016). My surgeon was Dr. Ankit Desai. My primary doctor gave me a referral to see him. Being the thorough person that I am, I made a list of other plastic surgeons because "everyone" said one should get at least three opinions before making a decision. So, I went to see Dr. Desai at Florida Plastic Surgery. First, the staff was the kindest, most helpful and thoughtful of any medical office I've dealt with in my 65 years. I met with Dr. Desai, he assessed my situation, answered all of my questions, explained EVERYTHING he would do, all while putting me at ease with none of the embarrassment I expected. I didn't even bother with the other doctors on my list. I knew right away that if I was going to have this surgery, he would be the one to do it!!the staff helped me with assembling the required paperwork to submit for approval from my insurance. They were great at that, too. Submitted on Tuesday and approved on Thursday of the same week!! My surgery went great; no drains, no stitches and minimal discomfort for 3-4 weeks!! I'm now seven months out and feel amazingly better than I have in years!! Ladies, if you've thought about this surgery, you've done it more than once. Don't wait, go for it!! I just wish I'd done it 30 years ago!!
