What People Say About Dr. Hatem Ahmed Abou-Sayed, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
I went in to get my 10 year augmentation replacement with lift. I was clear with what I was expecting in terms of perkiness, shape and size. I brought pictures. He assured me it was 100% doable. I was concerned with scar size, lifts can leave large scars. He assured me they would be minimal, even if we did the anchor lift. I also wanted my nose done to reduce the width and brought in a picture of Madison Beer. Again, assured me no problem. My breasts have massive scars over 50% of the breast, they were not lifted nearly to the height we talked about and a different implant then discussed was used. My nose looks like he barely went in to fix the width and just reshaped the tip. SO disappointed to have wasted 17k on someone who assured me he was capable of my expectations. My next day follow up appointment he was late and forgot the office keys, i was pain and dizzy waiting over an hour outside the office in the hall. All without pain meds due to a reaction. Neat

I was very fortunate to have Dr. Sayed recommended to me for my procedure. He was so professional and explained the surgery in great detail. I felt extremely confident and comfortable with Dr. Sayed and I am very satisfied with the results. I had breast reconstruction many years ago and had to have it redone. Amazing and caring doctor!
