Several years ago I visited Dr. Asaad Samra for a consultation on a tummy tuck. It wasn’t the right time and mentally/physically I wasn’t ready for it. At the beginning of this year, I revisited the idea and went back to discuss the procedure/options, etc. Driving there I remember thinking there is no way I’m gonna follow through with this but let’s take it step by step. From the minute I walked in their office my anxiety about doing it lessened and lessened. From the moment I met with the MA, Jessie, and then ultimately Dr. Asaad Samra, I knew I was in the right place. It felt very relaxed, comfortable and they put all my fears/concerns at ease. When I walked out that day I knew I was pumped and ready to do it. Every step of the way from beginning to end was “enjoyable”. Who says that about surgery? lol! The staff at the office was amazing, professional, and comforting. The day of the surgery each and every person who helped me along the way was 100%. They were all so lovely, friendly and made me feel calm and at ease. Then of course there was Dr. Asaad Samra, he has the best bedside manner I have ever seen. You feel like he is family, he really genuinely cares about you. Always listening to what you have to say, and talking you through any doubt or questions. The part that sticks in my mind is laying on the OR table and feeling that he was holding my hand assuring me it was all going to be ok, right before my anesthesia kicked in. The post-op staff was great and helped me through recovery, etc. As for the actual recovery from the procedure, it was very “pleasant” for what I thought was gonna be horrible. I did not have an ounce of pain, and I did not rely on the pain meds. It was very manageable and easy. It’s important to follow instructions and follow the protocol for recovery. I cannot recommend Dr. Asaad Samra enough. No matter what procedure you may be thinking of doing electively or not, you are in the BEST of hands with him and his staff.
