  • Breast Augmentation: Amazing Surgeon & Team

    Dr. Dean truly is an expert in his field. I had a breast reduction and from the consultation through all my post op appointments, I never once doubted their abilities. Him and his team were available anytime I needed and were more than happy to answer any questions or concerns I had. I’m about 3 months post op and the results are amazing.

  • DIEP Flap Reconstruction: First Mastectomy Surgery

    I was diagnosed with Stage 3A Breast Cancer on March 30, 2015. Dr. Dean and his staff were brought in as my reconstructive surgeon and it was a wonderful choice. He was there for my very first mastectomy surgery. He installed a tissue expander and preformed a breast reduction so I would not be lopsided while undergoing chemo and radiation. He and his staff are very compassionate and caring.
