I had a tummy tuck with some Liposuction on my flanks with Dr. Patel. I was given Dr. Patel’s information by my bariatric surgeon who states he does a lot of post-weight loss patients. I had Gastric Sleeve Surgery 2 years ago and have since lost 130 pounds.
I had residual skin on my tummy that was bothering me. I was given his information to consult with Dr. Patel, and my entire experience with his office has been amazing. I will start by saying that I am a nurse, and I was extremely impressed by all the staff members in the office. Everyone is knowledgeable, and extremely helpful. The consultation was amazing, Dr. Patel was very easy going, not pushy and not trying to push additional procedures on me, like other plastic surgeons who had previously consulted with. He was very interested in my well-being and what I was most concerned with. He answered my questions honestly, and he made me feel very comfortable. Scheduling the surgery date was easy, and again the staff answered all the questions I had. Fast-forward to the day of surgery, at the surgery center. The nurses and anesthesiologist was absolutely incredible. I had an amazing pre-op and post-op experience. I made sure to discuss with them my fear of being nauseous when waking up from surgery, and she took great care of me. I was not groggy after surgery and, most importantly, not nauseous. The entire staff was friendly and took amazing care of me. Dr. Patel was so pleasant and nice and took any fear I had away. I have since been going for my check-ups in the office and I am healing wonderfully. My scar is tiny and healing beautifully. The scar is low, which is amazing for swimsuit season. Dr. Patel did an outstanding job with my incision, and my follow-up care. Dr. Patel’s Physician assistant is amazing, she is always so knowledgeable and friendly. I can honestly say I had the most amazing experience and never once have doubted the procedure. My pain was well-managed and the care I have received throughout my experience has been unforgettable. If and when I do decide if I want additional changes, I would only go to Dr. Patel and his staff! Thank you for everything and thank you for helping me continue to love my body.
