Never will I be able to put into words my gratitude for Dr. Coan and his work. As a 21 year old with size H "lobular" breasts, Dr. Coan was able to not only change my size, but also give me a more appealing shape. As you can imagine, I was nervous about the procedure, but I knew that it was exactly what I wanted to do. Dr. Coan and his nurse April were awesome and made me feel so comfortable! He did a phenomenal job and I will always be grateful for Dr. Coan and his team!
8 months post-op from breast reduction and lift.....couldn't be happier with my results. Perfection thank you to your wonderful team.

Dr. Coan is the BEST! Care Plastic Surgery has the best patient care, bar none! From the minute I called Care to schedule my consultation to my 3 month post-op appointment, every single member of the Care team has treated me with respect, kindness, positivity, and warmth. The whole team has been with me through this entire journey and made it feel like a seamless transition. My expectations were exceeded in every aspect. If you have been thinking about plastic surgery, make the consultation!!

My experience with Dr. Coan couldn't have been more wonderful from the kind office staff to Dr. Coans honest and attentive approach. After meeting with Dr. Coan for a consultation, I knew he was the one to perform my breast augmentation surgery. He was knowledgable and honest in his feedback and recommendations for me personally. He really took the time to explain all my options and I went into the surgery feeling confident and relaxed. The surgery itself was a pleasant experience (and actually

Words can not express my gratitude, excitement, and satisfaction I have for Dr. Coan with Care Plastic Surgery in Durham and his staff. After a year long weight loss journey and losing 100lbs Dr. Coan helped me transform my body and say goodbye to the old me and hello to the person I knew I always was under the extra skin. From my first phone call to his office until today the whole team has made me feel as if I am the only patient and my questions, and concerns are their number 1 priority!
