Testimonials

I am a patient of Dr. Ashinoff.

For years I needed a breast reduction, raw itchy skin, neck, back and shoulder pain, couldn’t even find bras to fit me. I was at the point where I could no longer take the rashes and pain. With the encouragement from my husband I looked at surgeons from Monmouth and Ocean county. I read reviews of doctors from so many patients for months. I finally decided to make this embarrassing appointment. I chose Dr. Ashinoff. I showed up for my appointment so upset and mortified. I couldn’t believe I was going to show anyone my breasts. I was given a coverup to put on before the doctor entered the room, and yes I wanted to die. Now I hear that knock on the door, omg the doctor is coming in. Within a minute I no longer was embarrassed, I actually felt at ease. As he examined me I thought finally, someone is going to help me. He was so very nice and compassionate, I think to myself, yes you found the right doctor.

Surgery day comes and yes I am nervous. The staff at the surgery center was just great and kept me at ease. Surgery took place and 8lbs of breast tissue was removed, I was a new woman. I went for a ultrasound about two weeks after my surgery. The ultrasound technician asked me what doctor did my breast reduction. I ask her why? Does something look wrong? She tells me no, the doctor did a beautiful job and she sees reductions a lot. She also couldn’t believe 8lbs were taken off and how great I looked. Even the doctor that read the ultrasound came in to talk with me and he also said the same thing. I am all healed and couldn’t be happier. I am older and heavy I know I’m not a super model but Dr. Ashinoff has made me feel like one!

My story is probably no different than that of many women who are faced with the medical challenges associated with large heavy breasts. For many years, I had thought about the possibility of breast reduction but feared the process and perceived embarrassment associated with the process. After a series of medical complications, I found the courage to proceed and investigate the procedure and find a surgeon. Through insurance and my own research, I found Dr. Wimmers.

It was with a great deal of trepidation that I made my first appointment. Dr. Wimmers was so positive I felt reassured and had great hope. Julie was outstanding, helping me navigate through the non- medical component. The process was positive and smooth.
The surgery went very well and was uneventful. Dr. Wimmers and Marianne were both attentive with follow up and were available, even through the July 4 holiday to address my concerns.

I could not be happier with the results. To date my symptoms are gone, my body confidence up. Dr. Wimmers is an excellent surgeon. His staff is outstanding and very professional. I have and will continue to recommend Dr Wimmers especially for this type of procedure.

I was diagnosed at age 38 with Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer on 7/14/14. I went from a scary place in my life to feeling blessed & feeling like this was meant to be. I was referred to Dr. Eric Wimmers by my other Breast Surgeon Dr. Enrique Alvarez. The day that I walked in for my first consult with Dr. Wimmers I was calm, felt confident. We discussed the options for Breast Reconstruction. MD took his time explaining each option, he was thorough and answered any question or concerns.

I opted to do B/L DIEP Flap Surgery; recovery was long but it was worth it; if I had to go through DIEP flap surgery again I would do it all over!! I couldn’t be happier with the way I look I’m overjoyed!! When a physician treats you like a team member & embraces the shared decision making process, you have not only trust but friendships & respect for your medical team. I applaud each & every doctor who traveled this journey with me. I’m a patient advocate for other women who are seeking information about breast reconstruction, surgery, healing & recovery. I would not be doing this outreach had I not had a good experience with my breast cancer team. My experience with Dr. Eric Wimmers has been wonderful, he’s fabulous, he has been another angel!! I’m delighted with the way I look & loving my second chance at life! Dr. Eric Wimmers provides Compassionate Care Before, During & After Your Breast Reconstruction Surgery. Thank You Dr. Wimmers I’m so happy with results & that I was referred to you!!

After having breast cancer and a mastectomy I choose Dr. Elkwood to do the reconstruction and a breast lift on the other side. The results are amazing, very balanced and symmetrical. Dr. Elkwood carefully explained each process that would take place and the choices I had. He was caring, patient and talented. The care I received at The Plastic Surgery Center was excellent. There was always someone there to help with any concerns I had. They always warmly welcomed me every time I went for my visits and made me feel special and important.

I am so happy with the outcome of my laser hair removal. I am 60 years old and have had this problem since my teens. There were times I had to treat my facial hair 3 times a day. Since having these treatments I am a different person. I no longer worry if my 5 o’clock shadow is showing. To all who are considering attention, I cant encourage you enough to have Dr. Saad work his magic. I wish I did this years ago. I’m sure you will enjoy the new you as much as I do.
