"Dr. Mesbahi and Staff Are Amazing!! - Dr. Mesbahi and his entire staff are amazing. Dr. Mesbahi did not cut any corners. He made my well being and my health his first priority. My post op results are amazing!! I was a little worried about scaring because I suffer from hyperpigmentation. Only weeks after surgery I can honestly say I can barely see the incisions. I was also afraid of pain from the surgery, but there was minimal. I’m not sure how Dr. Mesbahi did it but he did. I felt like I could get right back at it the next day. He and his staff are down to earth, kind, caring, and on top of their game. From the time I went in for my consult to post surgery I have been in good hands. You will not be disappointed!!"
