I had been to three other surgeons for a breast augmentation and none seemed to really 'feel' right. That is, they seemed like great doctors (all men), but I was not confident with going through with surgery. Until I mete Dr. Elias. She was so informative at the consultation I almost wish I had went there first just to gain all of the info that she taught (mind you I had researched augmentation for 5 years!).I am now 2 weeks post op and I am so incredibly happy with my breasts and the level of care and understanding Dr. Elias has for me. You dont feel like a 'patient' you feel loved, nurtured and she really does have 'your mind in mind'. No other doctor I had met has ever done this. She does not show before and after pics and I actually respect that she doesnt feel the need to do that. It is, in a way, exploitaitive. Dr. Elias does not have to have pics to gain profit and business, people come to her, and keep coming! Let me tell you, two weeks post op, my breasts look beautiful! I am so glad I following my intuition, didnt have to see a hundred pics of her 'work' because I feel this doctor is incredible! I am so grateful for this wonderful doctor and the staff!!! 10 STARS!
