I really enjoyed my visit, might of fact I referred my cousin. I felt very comfortable with meeting the doctor. He gave me detailed information about the procedures. I also received detailed information about financing. I must say I'm very excited and can't wait to book my surgery! Thank you!
Talk about a group of supportive professionals! I was completely hesitant when it came to even scheduling a breast augmentation appointment, but knew this is something I had wanted for a while now. Every single person I encountered in their office was compassionate and made me feel comfortable. The consultation, along with every question about the procedure was answered. I left with a feeling of comfortable, calm confidence.
Went in for a consultation for a Brazilian lift and was given all of the information and had all of my questions answered to my thorough understanding. I can honestly say that I feel 100% comfortable about this upcoming procedure and will update my review post-surgery. Thank you so much for this peace of mind.
I had my surgery 3 months ago with Dr. Smaili and I cannot thank him enough. My results are awesome. Dr. Smaili did an incredible job and his staff was great answering all of my questions before and after surgery. I felt very comfortable the whole time. I would recommend Dr. Smaili to everyone. You will get the attention you deserve and the results you want.
I chose California Surgical Institute to have my surgery done. I chose Dr. Smaili. He is wonderful at what he does. As I researched for a really good surgeon, I compared Dr. Smaili with others and by far, Dr. Smaili was the best. What drawn me to him, were his before and after photos. He is a very good surgeon, and he is really good at what he does. I would recommend him a thousand times. I am very content and satisfied with my results. I couldn't be any happier! I am so thankful I found a very good surgeon. He is truly the best. Thank you Dr. Smaili!
TERRIBLE!! PLEASE DONT GO HERE! – I went to CSI in Brea for my first breast surgery. The reason i say first, is because i had major rippling within the first couple months and cried myself to sleep everynight. i'm 22, so this was extremely hard for me to accept, being young and in a bathing suit often. i was more confident before the surgery. Going back to the first surgery, i waited in the waiting room for an hour and fifteen minutes past my surgery appointment before i even went back. when i finally got back there and into my gown and had pictures taken, they said i would be going back shortly, put my IV in and left again. Luckly, my mom was in there waiting with me before i offically went in for the actual surgery because after she put the IV inm, i fainted and my mom ran out to get help. they finally came in and then i proceeded to wait another hour. i thought everything was okay until i started noticing some ripples and dents in my breast within the first couple months. i called numerous times and never got a call back. i finally made another appointment so i could talk to him about the situation and what we could do to fix it. he told me this is super "rare" and has happened to about 3 people in his whole career (which from reading an above review, thats clearly a lie). he told me i would need to pay another 2,500 dollars for him to try and fix it. he told me it happens because i have "thin skin". you don't think that should have been something you should have told me when i went in for consultation and you examine me? he clearly just wanted my money. he didnt answer all the questions i had in a way that i felt comfortable so i literally called another plastic surgeons office in the area to get some answers. the receptionist was great and more than happy to talk to me. the second surgery was much like the first, i waited and hour + to get taken back, warned them i faint when i get an IV and they left me anyways, told me 3 different times, "10 more minutes" and i waited in the back in a gown for more than 2 hours. the day after surgery i took a peak down my shirt and it looked TERRIBLE. the dent was worse. i freaked and asked him about it the next day when i went to get my bandages taken off then next morning. he said it would go away after i was done healing...it did get better, BUT the problems from before have happened again. he had told me that if it happened after the 2nd surgery there was nothing he could do and the next resort would be for him to take them out, but that would cost ANOTHER 2,500 bucks. i have had many friends ask me how i felt about this place and if i would recommend it and i always say ABSOLUTELY NOT! i wouldnt tell me worst enemy! for anyone reading this, PLEASE DON'T GO HERE! do your research before choosing a place. if you check the reviews, if theres more than a couple bad ones, that should speak volumes. RUN! its funny too because i always wait more than an hour when i have an apointment and the second i start talking about my surgery and my complications to other people, they take me right in. i just end up waiting in the back. but im actually givin my phone number out to a mother and her daughter who ended up calling me and decided not to go there after i told them my story. if i can save one person from going there, then my time spending writing this review was worth it.
Couldn't Be Happier! – Dr. Smaili and his staff were wonderful. They made me feel very comfortable. Choosing a doctor isn't always easy, I has desired breast augmentation for quite some time, but had not found the right doctor. I had seen other doctors in the past, but had not been able to make a decision. Dr. Smaili truly made me feel at ease with my decision of getting breast augmentation. He was very informative regarding the procedure. The staff was very friendly and helpful before and after my surgery. I love my results. I feel like a new person. I highly recommend Dr. Smaili.
Thank you Dr. Smaili & Staff – I just wanted to drop you guys a line and let you know how thankful I am for the attention to every detail you demonstrated. I felt extremely safe and well informed going into this and it made all the difference in the world. I appreciate the consideration my doctor and all the staff there had for my apprehensiveness, turning a very scary situation for me into a memorable one. Your facility is remarkable. The operating recovery room resembled and felt like a hospital setting as well as the care I received from your nurses and staff. A very sincere thank you to all!
So happy after my breast lift and augmentation! – It's been 5 days since by breast lift and augmentation and I feel great! I don't have words to explain how happy I am with Dr. Smaili his staff and overall with everything. I went into surgery calm and relaxed, the nurses were great! Dr. Smaili and his whole team are definitely the best!
Can't Wait for My Surgery!!! – I really enjoyed my visit, might of fact I referred my cousin. I felt very comfortable with meeting the doctor. He gave me detailed information about the procedures. I also received detailed information about financing. I must say I am very excited and can't wait to book my surgery! Thank you!
