Reviews for DuraSorb® Breast Augmentation Procedures Near Newport Beach, CA

5.0 Review from R.N. Source: Yelp Aug 28 2023

"I recently had a breast revision/augmentation with a lift by Dr Kelishadi and I couldn’t have asked for a better surgeon! He is known as the King of Cleavage and definitely lives up to the name. His staff is friendly, professional, and prompt to answer calls and respond to emails. It was also super nice and convenient having Dr Sherry as part of the team helping with all the medications ordered. On my pre op visit, I was given a bag with all the medications I would need for my surgery and recovery. Dr Sherry would text and make sure I didn’t have any questions which was so appreciated. After my surgery, Dr Kelishadi would call and check in to make sure I was doing well. If I had a questions or concerns, Dr Kelishadi would promptly call and answer all the questions I had. He is genuinely a great person and an amazing Surgeon that I would highly recommend."

"I am nearly 6 months post op and I can truthfully say I am 100% happy with my results. I had previously had a traumatic experience with a revision where I had more complications coming out of the revision than I did prior... I had lumps of leftover scar tissue the previous surgeon disregarded, uneven keloid scars, and to top it all off, the surgeon had dropped something on my stomach during surgery that left a nasty burn mark. I was unhappy with the results and as time went on, the complications just became more and more visible. I was self conscious and honestly furious that I essentially paid to feel self conscious. Jaded, it took me a while to muster up the courage to find a surgeon that I could trust to fix my breasts. I found Dr. Kelishadi after months and months of research, this time specifically looking for someone who had a history of success in complicated breast revisions as opposed to just seeing before and afters from "virgin breasts." Dr K and his wonderful staff are all consummate professionals. He talked through what he believed was best for me after I gave my concerns, told me alternative hypotheticals since there was no certainty without actually opening me up, and provided me examples of previous patients that had similar complications. My surgery was indeed complicated and took about 4 hours. I immediately knew from my recovery process that Dr K did way more work than my previous revision I mean it was night and day. I felt a little like an alien the first few weeks, but Dr K gave me so much confidence in trusting the process. Slowly but surely, my implants have settled. He took out all my scar tissue, revised my scars (even the nasty burn I had on my stomach from my previous surgeon), and placed an internal bra to help give me more support while I heal. I could not be happier with my results and I am so incredibly thankful that I found Dr Kelishadi. It’s kind of daunting to write out my journey with implants, but I know I can’t be the only one that had crazy complications from implants. If you have "virgin breasts" or complications from your current implants, give Dr Kelishadi a call. I am positive you will have a wonderful experience as I did.Thank you Dr Kelishadi and staff"

"As far as I can remember I was hesitant to get a breast lift/ implant because of the fear that I was going to go to a surgeon who didn’t do a seamless job. I was fortunate enough to meet Dr. Kelishadi and he made me feel comfortable about the procedure, process, and his quality of work. I took a leap of faith and he did a PHENOMINAL job. One of my fears was the aftermath of the incision and stitching and I was amazed by how polished it looked. I chose a more conservative route with my implants and he made sure it was proportionate to my body and frame. I have reached out to Dr. Kelishadi a few times after my procedure and he displayed kindness, promptly responded back, and reassurance. I’ve referred friends to him because he’s definitely great as his work!"

"I had the best experience here!! I have  wanted a breast augmentation for over 10 years and during that time I went to consultations but those doctors never made me feel confident enough to go ahead with them, or they did not understand what I was looking for. Once I found Dr. Kelishadi and I knew right away this was where I wanted to get my augmentation. Dr. Kelishadi understood exactly what I wanted, showed me before and afters, and also eased my mind so I felt confident about finally doing this. It’s only been a month out since surgery and I am already so obsessed with them. They look so natural and exactly what I wanted. Can’t wait for the 3 month mark!!"

"Let me start off by saying I am not one for writing reviews but because this surgery was such an important decision of mine and an elective one, I thought it was absolutely necessary. As an ICU Nurse deciding on my first surgery let alone a cosmetic one, my anxiety about choosing the right surgeon was extremely high until I met Dr. K! Searching for surgeons was tough but when I first met Dr K he was personable, professional, realistic, and without a doubt truly loves what he does. By the time I left my hour consultation, I knew my decision was made. I got breast aug with Dr K about 2 months ago. Valerie at the front desk has been supportive, kind, organized, and reliable this entire process. Dr. Sherry (the pharmacist and Dr Ks wife!) also was amazing; she reached out to me & we went over all of my medications prior to surgery & of course eased my nerves closer to my surgery date. The surgery center was beautiful and clean. I even let Dr K decide which implants and size he thought during surgery would best fit my athletic body with the vision of my dream boobs! (talk about trusting your surgeon!)  He knew exactly what I wanted but was also very realistic on what would look most natural and flattering. The anesthesiologist was fantastic (he even called me the day before my surgery which as a nurse I was already very impressed!), my preop, intraop, and recovery nurse Alaina was so kind and caring to me! Thank you! After surgery Dr K gave me his personal number (which Drs rarely do!) and even called me the next day to see how I was feeling and followed up with me the next couple of days after that. Even if I had any questions he responded so quickly! I was on pain meds for only a few days and the recovery was not as bad as I thought it would be and I truly thank Dr K and his team for that! I have not one bad thing to say about Dr K and his team. I can go on and on how great my experience has been. I am only 2 months post op, I feel more confident than ever before! Like I said, as a nurse I have seen it all and because this is your body and an elective surgery trust your surgeon & pick the best there is which is Dr K! Dr K and SSK thank you so so much!"

"I wish I had come across Dr. Kelshadi and his awesome staff from the get go, then I wouldn’t have to waste 6 months of research on a surgeon for my wife. If I can give Dr. K 10 stars I would he is so awesome. The procedure went great and my wife loves her new breasts. Dr K is not just only professional at what he does but also is super honest and advises his patients what really looks good and what should be done. IF YOUR LOOKING FOR A GREAT DR STOP AND GO WITH DR. K you will be nothing but pleased with the results and outcome. Valerie is also amazing along with dr Sherrie they are all helpful and caring I will recommend everyone here. Literally flawless from results to professionalism. Thank you Dr K and staff for everything"

"I found Dr Kelishadi through Yelp and 10000% do NOT regret my decision at all!  He listened to all my concerns and was realistic in what would look best on me.  Leading up to my surgery, I admit I was extremely nervous, but the day before I received phone calls from his team checking in on me which was so thoughtful and sweet.  The surgery was very quick and I was walking and resuming normal life by the 4th day post op.  Dr Kelishadi is an amazing surgeon who actually cares about you with an amazing team behind him!  I’m currently 1 month post op and have never felt more confident in my daily life with the new girls :)"

"I am 56 yrs old and needless to say my breasts looked my age. I had 3 other very bad surgeries through the years and would have left them as they were. However, I am also a runner and couldn’t stand having such massive breasts (never what I wanted!) I recognized I asked ALOT of Dr. Kelishadi. I wanted them small, perky, and ok... like they did when I was 16. (don’t judge : ) ). He was honest, managed my hopes and expectations warmly, and made me feel heard. After the surgery, he was honest and very sweet about how hard he had worked to meet my expectations/hopes. I have to tell you... HE DID! I never take the time to write these reviews, but this one is SO DESERVED! Yes, his staff was amazing and helped every step of the way, but when the rubber meets the road, we want our surgeries to be worth the pain and money. So if you are "on the fence" about who to choose or wonder if he is the right surgeon for you... GET OFF  the fence! He will underpromise but over-deliver without question! I am super happy with my breasts. Thank you Dr. Kelishadi for hearing how important it was to me and understanding that I only have one body to live in. THX for making this one feel so much more like me!!!"

"SSK is such a great practice. They are small enough to actually remember your name, and big enough to have a treatment for anything you could possibly want. When it comes to my body, I’m pretty particular with who I get treatments from. I had gotten saline implants sixteen years and three babies ago and wanted my boobs back where they belong. I didn’t take choosing a surgeon lightly. I had three consultations from friend referrals and chose Dr. Kelishadi for a few reasons. 1- his reputation and experience with breast work. 2- his honesty about outcome and expectations. 3- he never tries to upsell or encourage other areas to change. If anything, he encouraged me to be confident with my body as it is. From booking the surgery to even now, they make you feel cared for and listened to. Dr. Sean text me after surgery and for the next couple days to see how I was feeling and answer any questions. The office called as well to make sure I was being taken care of. It’s such a one stop shop I didn’t even have to go to the pharmacy to pickup all my meds and vitamins because Dr Sherry is a pharmacist. They really care about their patients and it shows. I had a lift and implant upgrade. I wanted bigger, but not tacky, sized boobs. Dr. Sean heard my desires and picked the perfect size to fit my body. He really is a master of his craft and I feel confident in every member of the staff being amazing at what they do. When I got Botox , PA Aida numbed me so I felt nothing, and really took her time to place the product perfectly. You’ll be in amazing hands and get award winning results."

"Dr. Kelishadi and his wonderful team are beyond words- seriously incredible! I scheduled a consult with him, went and immediately knew he was the one for me. Valerie at the front desk loves her job, and you can tell just by speaking with her over the phone. When I went in for my consult, I was greeted warmly by Dr. Kelishadi, Sherry, Aida and every other member of his team. They all stopped to say "Hello" and "Welcome!" After spending an hour-long consult with Dr. Kelishadi I felt validated, heard, and confident. I went ahead and booked the surgery at the end of my consult and never looked back. I did not schedule a consultation with an other surgeons because I knew he would get it right! Back story: I was unsatisfied with my previous lift and implants. My previous surgeon had even completed a revision, yet still didn’t get it right. Turns out I had the wrong profile implants and the wrong type of lift from the beginning. Insert Dr. Kelishadi and I am over the moon with my results!He completed a revision with a lift (lollipop) and placed Ultra High Profile implants to give me the exact look I wanted. Seriously, look no further. He is the one for you!"

"Dr. KELISHADI and his staff are amazing. My wife had a lift and breast augmentation. From the initial consultation we knew we had found the right plastic surgeon. He explained everything in detail and went over the entire process with us. His attention to detail is impeccable. After the surgery he and his staff called several times to check on my wife and make sure she was healing correctly. We could not be happier with our choice of Dr. KELISHADI. We highly recommend him and his staff."

"I had Breast Augmentation with SSK March 2021 and it has been the best decision I’ve made by far. After several consultations, Dr. Kelishadi stood out to me the most because of his knowledge, very high standards & his amazing personality. During my consult he dedicated plenty of time for me, answered all my questions & explained much more of the surgery than I ever imagined to know -which was great I felt highly educated. Post-Op was when he really surpassed my expectations as a surgeon. He provided me his personal number & Dr. K himself called to check up on me several times. Recovery was smooth I have not had any issues. I am in love with the results - my breast fit my petite body, they are soft, fluffy & very sexy! I trust him with my life & would recommend him to anyone wanting a breast augmentation. I am 23yrs 5’0 130lb & got 505CC. I got the surgery done March 2021, so writing this review a bit over a year later :)"

"Couldn’t be any happier - my results look so natural - First off let me say, Dr. K is an amazing surgeon and person all around! The attention to detail and thorough consultation is what made me realize he was the perfect surgeon for me- aside from his amazing before and after breast augmentation photos which initally roped me in. This was my first experience getting any kind of cosmetic surgery and wanted to make sure I found someone who not only had natural results with patients, but also had great bedside manner so I could feel 100% comfortable. If you are looking for the same qualities in a surgeon, look no further! Dr. K and his staff make sure you have everything you could possibly need for recovery before your scheduled surgery which is a huge plus!As far as recovery, I had the best experience I think I could have possibly had. He always gives out his personal phone number to make sure there are no hiccups, he even called my boyfriend (who was taking care of me during recovery) to check in on me the day of/after to make sure I was doing well. As of now I am a year out from my surgery and most people don’t even know I had a breast augmentation because they look so natural. Let me just say my boyfriend and I RAVE about Dr. K to everyone I know and recommend him to anyone looking to get their breasts done. All in all, he is the absolute best!Thank you for boosting my self confidence, Dr. K!"

"I never write reviews because its very hard to impress me, but this time i had to. I had breast lift + implant exchange with Dr. Kelishadi less than 3 weeks ago and I can already tell he has done an excellent job, i absolutely love my results. However I want to dedicate this review mostly to the actual clinic and stuff, because I am very impressed, especially when comparing to other plastic surgeon practices. First of all, Dr. Kelishadi is very welcoming and takes his time (exactly 1 hour) during the consultation to explain everything and answer all the questions to the last detail. I could immediately tell he knows what is he doing and when I left his clinic I canceled all my other consultations I had scheduled because I knew I will choose Dr. Kelishadi 100%. All the other stuff is also very friendly, from the receptionist Valerie to all the nurses and also his wife, who is a pharmacist there and will be explaining all the medication. NOW - the most important thing that made a difference for me was the fact that they will provide you with a huge bag full of necessary items, as well as all the medication you will need, WITHOUT ANY ADDITIONAL CHARGES!!! Yes, i know its most likely included in the total price I paid for the surgery, but trust me it feels nice when you know that you dont need to worry about other expenses and you are just ready to go. I am saying this because I actually just booked rhinoplasty with a different doctor, paying 22k and they still made me pay extra for the medication and tried to sell me a scar gel for additional 65$, which Dr. Kelishadi also already includes in his package. The rhinoplasty practice is also making me do 2 covid pcr tests which needs to be done at their dedicated lab ($150each). I didnt have to deal with any of this at SSK surgery, and I just want to say that this is not about the money but about the overall experience and small details like this that make you feel like they actually value you and they are not just trying to sell you things. Dr. Kelishadi and his stuff made me feel safe and I can tell they really value their patients. I live almost 2 hours away from Newport Beach but it was definitely worth the drive and I will definitely choose Dr. Kelishadi again for more procedures if I need to. Also, the price is direct equivalent of his work (and I would even say he could charge more) so dont be cheap because then you will have to go redo your surgery anyway and pay more for reconstruction."

"I had the best experience with Dr. Kelishadi. He was attentive and answered all my questions. I am 10 months post op and I love love love my breasts! He did such a great job. My breasts look amazing, they feel natural and my scar is barely visible. When I was nervous about how big to go he reassured me and I am so glad I listened to him. I highly recommend this plastic surgeon."

"Breast augmentation revision, lift & lower eyelid lift with fat transfer - Such an amazing experience with Dr K and everyone at SSK plastic surgery from the consultation to the surgery to even the post op care - top notch - I had a breast augmentation revision , lift & lower eye lid lift with fat transfer - I work as a recovery room nurse - so I pay attention to details the information provided before surgery had all my questions answered and I knew what to expect in my recovery process. Dr K was kind enough to check in on me the night of surgery to see how I was feeling ! The kindness , the care - this has been a wonderful experience- I am one week post op and I can’t wait to be fully healed !Anyone considering any cosmetic procedure- I highly recommend ssk !!"

"Breast Augmentation 25 Year Old - Day of surgery went so smooth - SSK plastic surgery has made my experience extremely well! Once I met Dr. Kelishadi, I felt very safe in his hands. He is very patient surgeon. I felt comfortable in trusting him. Days leading up to the survey, I felt many emotions! Happy, excited, and nervous. From my consultation and to my pre-op I felt very well cared for. I had the opportunity to try on sizers, and had a 3D example of my size. Valerie was extremely kind in the way she spoke to me, as I was getting nervous. She took the time on the phone with me and provided comfort. I am so thankful for that! All of the staff is very kind. Day of surgery went so smooth. The nurse talked me through everything, the anesthesiologist introduced himself and also gave me the rundown of what to expect. Dr. Kelishadi came in with such a positive vibe! He’s so professional and genuine. I couldn’t have asked for a better surgeon. I can’t wait to see how they came out! I'll sharing pics soon! Again, Thank you Dr. Kelishadi!!"

"Dr. K is a life saver! From the minute I called his office for a consultation I felt comfortable. His staff is so warm and welcoming! I called in for a breast revision since Dr. Casper left me completely bottomed out with awful scarring. The consultation was great. Dr. k was amazing, gave me tons of info and was honest with me about the complication of my revision. He was booked out a month but his staff assured me since I was a revision I would be on a list to fill a cancellation. I couldn’t believe they actually called and I had surgery within a week of my consult. Surgery is such a scary thing but I was very comfortable in Dr. K’s surgery center. The anesthesiologist spoke to me before surgery and so did he. Even after a very difficult surgery my recovery process was a breeze! I was ready to get back to the office the next day! Which I don’t recommend haha but I was ready! I was off my meds within days. My first surgery I took a full 2 weeks to recover and felt awful the entire time.  I could go on and on but my results are amazing and I couldn’t recommend this entire office enough."

"Dr. Kelishadi is without a doubt the kindest, most sincere doctor - I am 2 weeks and 2 days post op from my Mommy Makeover with Dr. Kelishadi. I had a breast implant replacement from saline to gummy silicone and a breast lift. Dr. Kelishadi recommended a tummy tuck for an ultimate waistline and flat tummy but I felt it was too intense and chickened out lol! So I did a BBL instead which is lipo and fat transfer to my butt. I wanted a very natural shaping vs a huge butt. During the consultation Dr.Kelishadi paid very close attention to what I wanted and spent the time with me to explain each procedure and possible outcome. PreOp everything was online to review prior to surgery and Dr. Kelishadi answered all my questions during our preop appointment. Surgery day I was super nervous this was my 4th time going under anesthesia and my biggest surgery out of those. The staff made me comfortable and once Dr.Kelishadi arrived I was as comfortable as I could be. After surgery I stayed at the Laguna Recovery center for 3 nights which Dr.Kelishadi referred me to. Looking at my immediate results I was beyond impressed. It was better that what he explained and better that the pictures he showed me. I am still swollen and recovering however I'm super excited about how everything is healing and can't wait to see how everything goes in the next couple months. Dr. Kelishadi was very nice and concerned about my health and healing during my recovery and he checked in with me on his personal cell frequently. I've had plastic surgery twice before and Dr.Kelishadi is without a doubt the kindest, most sincere doctor I have had. I highly recommend him and may even bite the bullet and do the tummy tuck in the future. After seeing how well he taped me up after surgery and how well I'm healing I think he would do an incredible job with a tummy tuck!"
