Ratings for Dr. Michael M. Papalian
I have been to a number of plastic surgeons over the years but none were so meticulous or perfectionist as Dr Papalian. He performed 2 procedures and I couldn't be happier with the results. Definitely would recommend and be back again. I travelled over 2500 miles to see him, FYI :)
I had bilateral breast reconstructive surgery. He was fine until I ran into problems. After surgery I saw him to remove the drains. I fainted after the removal. He came into the room shortly after, while his nurse was still attending to me, commented, "Oh, she's still here," turned and walked out of the room. Two days later I was in the hospital with a staph infection and a fever of over 103. End result was I had to have the implants removed as my oncologist didn't feel it was safe to wait to begin treatment. He left a stitch in and when I told him about it, he just turned and walked out of the room. I will not be seeing him again for any further treatment. I would not recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Papalian is an amazing person and doctor. Not only did he help me become more comfortable with myself, but he encouraged me to do it the right way. He is very realistic and will tell you the truth which is a wonderful quality in a plastic surgeon. I could go on and on about how great I think he is. Even though I have since moved to Southern California, I would not go to any other doctor for future surgeries. I would make the trip to Atherton just to see him!
Dr. Papalian is attentive, understanding yet direct and honest. He gave me a total body and face makeover but only after I lost weight and took on a healthier life style. What can I say? His approach of dealing with the whole person rather than strictly the physical has changed my life. I love, love, love the results - I feel regenerated, brand new - inside and out! Highly Recommended.
