Cosmetic Surgery reviews in Emeryville

    Eshima, Dr. Issa
    This is a letter that I sent to Dr. Eshima which serves as my review: Dear Dr. Eshima, I want to thank you for what you have given me. It’s important to me that you know how deeply you have affected my life. Thank you for being the surgeon and artist that you are. I can’t begin to imagine the time and dedication that it takes for someone to perfect their craft to the degree that you have. It is obvious that you are passionate about what you do. You leave no stone unturned in your efforts to achieve the absolute best outcome for your patients. Your attention to detail, from the first consultation through the surgery and the aftercare, is beyond impressive. I wish every physician had your standard of excellence. If that were the case I would never have an issue with going to a doctor. Just as you predicted, I am beyond thrilled with my results. But you have given me so much more than “a beautiful face.” You opened a door for me that has allowed me to change my world. I have always had insecurities that I struggled to overcome. It was rare for me to feel that I measured up to whatever it was that I saw in others. I was very tough on myself and worked continuously to improve myself, including physically, emotionally and spiritually. I know that I made tremendous strides in my emotional growth and spiritual understanding; however, the way that I saw myself physically aging undermined my ability to enjoy life with abandon. So, as I got older, instead of feeling free to be who I have come to be, I became more self-conscious and more intimidated, which had a huge impact on how I saw and experienced my world. I can’t thank you enough for what you have given me. What you did for me gave me the opportunity to remove a huge emotional barrier that had held me back from experiencing my best life. I am still emerging from this physical and emotional transformation and I feel wonderful! I love the way I look and feel. I no longer feel self-conscious or intimidated. I appreciate myself, where I have been, and how far I have come. I have a renewed sense of my own self-worth and I want, more than ever, to take good care of myself and enjoy as many years on this earth as I possibly can. I now look forward to going out and being around people, and I have become a little more outgoing! I’m not sure my words can actually relay to you my deep appreciation for your extremely important part in my transformation. So, again, thank you Dr. Eshima. Thank you for what you do and for what you give. Thank you for what you did for me and for giving me the opportunity to appreciate my whole self. You just can’t imagine what a difference your gifts have made in my life. P.S. Thank you so much for spending so much time with my daughter. We both appreciate your honesty and your concern for what is best for her at this time. I have no doubt that you will be seeing her in the future!

    Eshima, Dr. Issa
    Dr. Eshima is an exceptional, very talented cosmetic surgeon and physician whose sense of aesthetics is instinctive. I had phenomenal results with 3 procedures: a ptosis repair, face lift and lip augmentation (I am in my 60s!). For me, the very positive results of all three procedures have made a HUGE difference in my appearance and are immeasurable in terms of my sense of self and self confidence. When you feel good about how you look, I'm convinced that you can contribute that much more to the world and those around you. Dr. Eshima made that happen for me. I'd like to comment specifically on my Ptosis Repair as it is a highly specialized, exacting surgery and you need a cosmetic surgeon who has that special expertise, experience and aesthetic sense to achieve the best results. There is no question that Dr. Eshima is that physician. Before my surgery, my left eyelid drooped considerably and the problem was quite noticeable. My eyelid is now perfectly placed (no more drooping) and it is aligned with my right eyelid which has no issue and is normal. I can't tell you how excited I am about the results - the difference is truly amazing! It is perfection! I also want to comment on Dr. Eshima's staff, Magaly and Cathy, who are true professionals. They are genuinely caring, extremely attentive and ALWAYS responsive. The support that they provided, every step of the way, from the initial consultation to pre and post op was amazing and more than reassuring. I can say that their care made a huge difference in my steady and positive recovery. In closing, Dr Eshima is a cosmetic surgeon beyond compare and, in addition, a very caring human being who makes a difference in his patients' lives. I feel so fortunate to have been his patient.

    Eshima, Dr. Issa
    Making the decision to have plastic surgery is not for everyone, but if you’re contemplating taking this step in self- investment, then you owe it to yourself to consult Dr. Eshima. My dermatologist referred me to Dr. Eshima, saying that his work is the best she has ever seen. Prior to meeting Dr. Eshima, I did my homework and had consultations with three other surgeons. But after my first consultation with Dr. Eshima I knew my decision was made. Dr. Eshima’s ethics and standards of practice are impressive. He does only facial plastic surgery. That’s right--no liposuction, no tummy tucks, and no breast augmentation—just faces! He does not advertise nor does he have a website. His practice is built strictly by professional referrals and patient-to-patient testimonials. That’s a true specialist! I was in the best possible hands. My surgery was scheduled a couple months later. Although many of Dr. Eshima’s patients are top fashion models and Hollywood stars, all his patients receive first-class treatment. The first night after surgery all of Dr. Eshima’s patients stay in a private suite at St Francis hospital with a private nurse. My nurse, Grace--otherwise known as an absolute angel—stayed by my side every moment and made sure I had no discomfort. I was ready to go home the next morning. Thereafter, Dr. Eshima’s nurse and office manager, Magaly, called me every single morning—even on weekends—to see how I was doing and to answer any questions. (And she continued to call until I politely told her that she could stop.) Magaly, who I later learned holds a Ph.D., is incredibly competent. She knows everything there is to know. I was so well prepared before my surgery that I didn’t have many questions, but it was reassuring to talk to Magaly those first few days. all but gone nine days post-op. I had some light discoloration, but no dark bruising. I took three weeks off work, just to be safe; but I could have returned to work after two weeks. The best part—the result is nothing short of FABULOUS! I look incredibly good thanks to Dr. Eshima! He turned back the hands of time and no one would ever guess my age—or that I’ve had surgery. I probably look 15 years younger than my 59 years. I was very concerned with looking overly “done”—that stretched and surprised look, like I had plastic surgery. But no one would ever guess! My closest friends and family have commented about how good I look, and that my new hairstyle is the best ever. Now my facial contours are smooth and youthful without looking pulled or ‘done.’ My neck is as firm as it was when I was 20 years old. I can pull my hair up into a ponytail without worrying about my crepey neck. And it all looks so natural! I am thrilled—and eternally indebted to Dr. Eshima! I have worked in the medical field for over 25 years and I know there are many doctors with superb training and credentials like Dr. Eshima’s. But Dr. Eshima is more than a highly competent physician—he’s a gifted artist with a scalpel. This was singly the best decision I have ever made and I would do it again in a heartbeat!!!

    He was great. His manner was great. There is nothing hidden and very straight forward. He didn't force me into the facelift, as I was only there for eye lift. But, gave me options and decided to do a full face lift.

    PEARL PLASTIC SURGERY CENTER-Samuel N. Pearl MD
    Dr Pearl was one of several doctors I interviewed to remove breast implants that I had put in over 30 years ago. He spent a great deal of time with me going over my options. He met with me more than once. He made intelligent recommendations and worked with me to make sure that my requirements were met. He was unfailingly kind and very informative. His staff was also warm and welcoming. They all made me feel comfortable with my decisions. On the day of the procedure, the nurse, the surgical tech and the anesthesiologist worked together to make me feel relaxed and secure. The surgery went perfectly, I am happy with the outcome, but more importantly, Dr. Pearl and his staff gave me the kindest, most caring follow up care possible. I recommend Dr. Pearl if you are thinking of having cosmetic surgery. As a side note, he has an on-site skin care specialist named Carol who is as kind and as funny as the rest of the staff. She is also very very good at what she does.

    Jeunederm cosmetic surgery center
    The office location is tucked away nicely in Fremont, so budget for time getting there in rush hour situations. I couldn't be more pleased with the results thusfar. After only 2 weeks, most of my pain, swelling, and bruising has subsided and my wife can tell a huge difference. If I had to do it all over again, I would respond with a resounding "Yes!"

    Eshima, Dr. Issa
    I have visited his office in person for a consultation, and my experience has been great. He is very knowledgeable, thoughtful, and considerate. He specializes in the face and we went through a huge look book with me. He definitely does not take everybody that comes to him; he is very careful about whether he thinks he can accomplish the patient’s goals and also what he thinks is the right thing to do. His assistant gave me a detailed and itemized list of the different procedures that we had discussed, so I could decide which ones I wanted and which ones I didn’t. It was just full disclosure, which I really appreciated. I really liked them. In fact, when I get the surgery, I plan to use them. I was actually surprised how quickly I could get in. The office environment is very professional. I didn’t get a bill, but the administrative aspect was good.

    Karanas, Dr. Yvonne L
    Everything was really good. Anything I had to do with her was outstanding. She was punctual and explained everything. She gave me options and explained what she thought might be best for me. She was very positive and assisted me throughout the entire process as well as post operation. Her bedside manner and communication skills were above and beyond. She would be a great role model to any doctor in training.

    Dr. Vivek Bansal
    There were consults started for possible surgeons. I visited two other doctors, but was not feeling either was a good fit. I also checked into "lifestyle lift." I read reviews of peoples experiences and then checked "Angies." What was appealing here, was the attention given to reviews as well as academic backgrounds. Because of all that, I chose to consult with Dr Vivek Bansal (not Banzel as listed). I mention this because I wanted to feel that I had the best chance for a good outcome. If I go for "bargain" then I would necessarily expect less. Thus, I entered surgery confident in my surgeon. Also he teaches plastic surgery at various medical schools. He and the support staff of the clinic are very knowledgable, friendly and helpful, and available for telephone support. They let me know what to expect, and how to prepare, both before my surgery and after. He and a trusted assistant doctor, also MD, both worked on me at the same time. I had local anesthesia, so felt tugging but no pain. After being sewn up, had minor, expected bleeding in succeeding hours. I used one tylenol dose for pain. For the laser procedure, I had no anesthetic, but had pre procedure meds. The laser felt like individual little pin p*****, so there was slightly more pain, but I was thinking of the outcome. After this, I had the assistance of a friend, who had a recliner I slept in to keep my head up. My second night, I was at home, on a tilted bed, with pillows. However, I was not able to stay with my head up, so had some swelling at my eyes. After I healed, my skin looked wonderful. Three months after the second procedure, I went to my hair stylist. (I had also asked her for surgical suggestions, because she works around the ears where most of the facial surgery attachments are made.) When she looked at my hair and ears, she said "he did a PHENOMENAL JOB." She then described others who have had noticeable problems. I am very happy with my results. People I haven't seen for awhile comment that "you lost weight," "you look so rested and relaxed." It is true. I may not be a swan, but I am no longer a pelican.
