I am only 5 days into my recovery and I couldn't be happier with Dr. Shamoun. I had my implants done with him 18 years ago and had to have them removed and replaced because of encapsulation that started occurring about 15 years ago but wasn't able to have the surgery done due to a heart attack and being on Plavix and aspirin. After finally getting cleared with my cardiologist, the surgery was a go. I am so happy. There is no other surgeon that I would have even considered going to. Dr. Shamoun is absolutely the BEST. Yvonne, his right-hand gal, makes everything go as smoothly as possible before the surgery. She will calm you down and assure you that everything is going to be just fine, which it was. She is prompt in returning phone calls and does everything in her power to accommodate you. I am now considering a face and necklift. Dr. Shamoun is simply THE BEST out there. He will not steer you in the wrong direction and listens to everything you have to say. Thank you, Dr. Shamoun.
Had initial breast augmentation surgery with Dr. John Shamoun, and it resulted in capsular contracture (according to him) and it was consistent with what I myself could see after the BA augmentation, as well rippling which was especially bad on the left side - you could definitely feel it and see it (if I put my arms above my head). When I would lay down, my breasts would fall to the sides leaving a huge wide gap in between the breasts - very unnatural looking. Came back in and met with Dr. Shamoun and scheduled a revisional surgery, Had to pay another pretty hefty fee to go into surgery again (a little bit cheaper than the first time around.) Double the costs/price of a breast augmentation procedure, and double the pain and ouchy-ness + recovery time, my breasts look fantastic and perfect. Just wish he could've done this correctly the first time. I was lucky I had extra money saved in case a complication would occur, or it would've been a tough time. Luckily the my new breasts after the revision surgery look almost... (no joke) PERFECT... very natural which is the look I generally like going for for myself and what initially drew me to Dr. Shamoun... his post-BA pictures of his clients online were very natural/ beautiful looking. I understand capsular contracture happens, just part of the risk of undergoing something like breast augmentation and everyone's bodies are different.. Still... if given the option to go back and do it the second time around, i probably would.. sigh vanity.
I chose Dr Shamoun after hearing & reading about his excellent reputation. When I met with Dr. Shamoun I instantly knew he was the one I wanted to perform my breast augmentation, lift and fat grafting procedure. I canât say enough about Dr. Shamoun, he is an extremely knowledgeable, skilled and gifted surgeon!! He was so kind and caring to my personal needs and spent time with me explaining all my options. I felt very comfortable and in safe hands with Dr. Shamoun! I had severe capsulation from an augmentation I had done by another doctor 30 yrs ago after breastfeeding. Now my new breasts and lift look incredible, natural and feel so real. Dr Shamoun is also correcting with fat grafting procedure a botched lipo suction on my thigh that another doctor did. For many years I have been so upset and self-conscious about it. I goes with saying how important it is to find a good reputable doctor. Iâm so grateful I was referred to Dr. Shamoun, I couldnât be happier with the results!! Thank you Dr. Shamoun for your amazing surgical gift and making my experience with you so comfortable. You have given me back my self-confidence! And thank you to your wonderful staff, Yvonne helped to make the process go so smoothly.
