I will be forever grateful to Dr. Shafer! I turned to him for a breast reconstructive surgery, which included a breast augmentation and mastopexy two years ago after being introduced to him by Beauty Broker, Melinda Farina.
Prior to meeting Dr. Shafer, I had a severe case of asymmetric breasts and had traveled to Colombia for corrective plastic surgery, performed by another surgeon. The results were no less than gruesome. After two months of being back in the states, it was more than evident I was left with mutilated my breasts.
The implant in my left breast began sliding down, out of place towards my rib cage. My left nipple was repositioned at an abnormal height. My breast also began to hardened into a square mold and caused indentations/air pockets down my cleavage. I lost sensitivity in the outer/lower region of my left breast and often felt pain surrounding the muscle region. On the right side, my breast had settled into an unnatural balloon like form, while my nipple was left off-centered. After consulting Dr. Shafer, I discovered furthermore damage had been done including incorrect positioning and sizing of implants to the botching of my chest muscle. I was physically and emotionally shattered.
Dr. Shafer accomplished what I thought to be the impossible. I now have close to proportional breasts/nipples that not only look amazing, but also feel as natural as could be! I have regained some sensitivity back in my left breast and general scarring has faded away nicely over time. I have shared the results with those whom are close to me and have gotten very positive feedback!
Dr. Shafer is truly a brilliant plastic surgeon. He is a doctor with a heart of gold, who genuinely cares and listens to your concerns. Additionally, I commend Dr. Shafer’s amicable staff. Elaine, his assistant, was especially kindhearted and made sure to follow up with me every step of the way.
Most importantly, Dr. Shafer produces positive results and is fully equip with the latest innovative technology to meet your goals.
Please excuse the lengthiness of my review. I hope that this is of help to anyone who regrettably finds themselves in a similar position or is looking for a talented plastic surgeon – you can trust you are in good hands with Dr. Shafer!
I was turning 60 and was looking for a more refreshed look.....gravity was taking its course....I was referred to doctor shafer by another m.d. and was immediately impressed with his honesty and forthrightness in discussing what I could realistically expect from certain procedures.....I decided on a face, neck and eye lift....there were no questions I couldn't ask and felt confident going in to the surgery in a non hospital environment which added to the positive experience that was to come....after the surgery I went home and believe it or not...dr shafer came to check on me the following day. and the aftercare continued for months....dr shafer is an amazingly skilled surgeon and in my opinion a great person. I am so thrilled with my results and people are shocked when I tell them my age.....I truly believe dr. shafer will be very famous in the near future.
I had been considering breast reduction surgery for about 5 years before finally deciding to go in for a consultation. I read all sorts of reviews online, some good, some scary, some bad. I chose Shafer Plastic Surgery and Dr. Shafer because they had nothing but positive reviews, and after looking through their website and speaking to Stacy at the office I had a good feeling about them.
I was very apprehensive about the whole thing to begin with because I had seen this go badly- breasts too small for body size, long recovery time, etc. But I had also always struggled with my self-image because as a bigger girl to begin with, my F/FF cup breasts always made me feel bigger than I was. I did not want a Doctor who would make me feel uncomfortable with myself or suggest other procedures when all I wanted was a breast reduction.
The first day I walked into Dr Shafer's office and met Stacy and Elaine, I knew this was where I should have gone. They were so open and friendly, and made me feel like I was their favorite client when they didn't even know me yet. Then I had the consultation with Dr Shafer and he took care to explain every single detail of every step of the process from that day through recovery (and I had lots of questions coupled with some serious anxiety about the anesthesia and recovery). Then Elaine came into the room and walked me through the financials and the rest of the details and she was the definition of professional/expert.
Fast forward to the days leading up to the surgery and then the surgery itself. The staff at the office took all of my (many) calls and patiently answered my questions, calmed my fears and made sure I was comfortable with how everything was going to happen. Then the day of the surgery, Dr Shafer was there to walk me through everything again, re-discuss my goals, and even to calm me down in the operating room when I was anxious for things to start.
Two weeks out of surgery, I can say for one of the first times in my life that I am happy with breasts. I can also say that this has changed the way I look at myself and that the results could not be any more perfect- literally. Dr Shafer gave me the most beautiful, perky, wonderfully shaped breasts I could have asked for. The scars are already nearly invisible, the swelling has gone down almost completely, and minus some minor leftover bruising and residual pain, I'm back in action.
I would recommend using Dr Shafer and his staff for any procedure you're thinking of, because they are genuinely good people who are incredible in their field.
Thank you guys!
I recently had laser lipo on my neck/chin/jawline and am extremely pleased with the results. No matter how thin I was, I always had a double chin and it's finally gone! The procedure was short, relatively pain free, the bruising was minimal AND the results were immediate! Dr. Shafer was very easy to talk and provided me with the most minimally invasive procedure to address my concerns and achieve my personal goals. His office is impeccable and his staff very friendly and accommodating. Dr. Shafer was also very attentive and after the surgery called to check in and answer any questions/concerns. I had the procedure on friday and was out shopping on sunday! I am less than three weeks out and continue to see more improvements in my appearance as the swelling goes down and the scar tissue softens. Overall great experience and would definitely recommend Dr. Shafer!
I was interested in getting both upper and lower lid work done because my eyes were looking very tired, saggy and puffy and made me look sad. I visited 3 doctors before choosing Dr. Shafer so you know I put much research into the procedure. First of all his demeanor is flawless. He is a friendly, personable, surgeon who speaks in a down to earth manner. He went over all the aspects of the surgery in detail, he was honest about what he though I did and did not need and what to expect. He asked me a lot of questions …rare these days! He didn't rush me and was genuinely interested in my concerns and achieving the results I was looking for.
Second he is a gifted surgeon. Nothing odd or over exaggerated was done to my eyes, none of that “surprised look” surgery with literally no visible scarring. Just a smooth, refreshed and bright eyed appearance. I get complements all the time on how well the surgery turned out and how I don't look my age. Now I look as happy and bright on the outside as I feel on the inside and believe me it does change your outlook. I am very happy with the results. He called me after my procedure to make sure I was ok and to see if I needed anything. His staff is an awesome bunch of professionals who keep things running like a well oiled machine. Eileen his coordinator is AWESOME! There is no wait time ever and they are friendly, courteous and go out of their way to make you feel like a celebrity. His office is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean, which helps calm the jitters.
I would definitely recommend him and as a matter of fact he made the procedure so hassle free I am going to have my tummy tuck done next – Thank you Dr Dave!
I hit 50 and began to see my mother's face. Got a mini lift (also called chin lift) and could not be happier! Dr Shafer is amazing. Talented, honest, good bedside manner, always available for follow up calls and questions (sometimes he even answers his own phone!), and never once tried to upsell me on any other procedures, which I find to be very rare. Loved his office staff too!
He is going to be famous one day! – I am no stranger when it comes to work of Plastic Surgery and the world of Anesthesia. I started getting work done at a very young age and I am 31 now and finally feel like more like myself than I have felt in years. I am also a perfectionist so I would go to Dr's that people looked up to as some of Americas Top Plastic Surgeons and for some reason things always went wrong for me. I was over injected with fat in areas of my face that made me look like I had hollow eyes and the biggest cheeks in the world. I would run from cameras because I couldn't recognize myself anymore. I also had no luck in the breast implant department either; I had some rippling in one implant and one breast was higher than the other. I would have given anything to turn back time but lets face it that was not going to happen so instead I called in for a new line of credit and set out to regain my confidence.
I met Dr. Shafer after numerous other consults and I immediately felt incredibly comfortable with him. He saw what others said I should just leave alone or said that they couldn't fix because it would make it worse. We did some facial liposuction to areas of my face that made me look like a chipmunk and he filled in some hollow areas of my face with some new fat grafts to smooth out the irregularities and contours; and for my breasts he used a material called strattice to help with the rippling and we put in some new implants and they are perfect.
Everything that he did came out great and I am really lucky to have found him. This is my first time ever writing a review but I felt compelled to let the world know what a wonderful Dr. he is.
Great Botox – I recently had Botox with Dr. Shafer. It was my first time for any cosmetic procedure. I think he did a very nice job. My results look very natural.
Great Plastic Surgeon – I had a breast lift with Dr. David Shafer about a month ago. He did a great job. I consulted with many board certified plastic surgeons before choosing Dr. Shafer. He was the nicest, most informative and most skillful of the surgeons. I could not be happier with my results.
Wow my arms look great! – Last fall, my coworker revealed to me that she had arm liposuction with Dr. Shafer. I was wondering if she had had a procedure since she looked as if she had been working out and adding definition to her arms, but I know she does not work out very much. I went in for the same procedure and I am so happy! The procedure took about 2 hours and I went home the same day. I had the liposuction about three weeks ago and I can already see great results. I brought my other friend in with me to my follow up appointment and she really wants to have arm liposuction and her muffin top done at the same time. I really could not be happier.
