"I lost over 100 pounds more than a decade ago, and spent many years frustrated with persistent loose skin and stubborn areas of fat that would not respond to any nutritional or exercise regimen I tried, despite maintaining a very disciplined, healthy, and active lifestyle. I finally decided to do something about it and conducted extensive research on the plastic surgeons in Oklahoma City. I was immediately impressed by Dr. Sawan’s credentials (F.A.C.S., Chief of Plastic Surgery at the University of Oklahoma for several years, surgical residency at Johns Hopkins, and trained at the Royal College of Surgeons Ireland). He also came highly recommended by a friend who had recently undergone a full body lift procedure with him and sang nothing but praise for his skill and care. I first visited Dr. Sawan prepared to invest the expense and significant recovery time of a circumferential body lift, and he surprised me by recommending a (slightly) less invasive and less costly tummy tuck with liposuction and strategically placed fat transfer. I was impressed with Dr. Sawan and his staff, and respected the fact that he actually talked me out of a more expensive procedure (good integrity vibes, right from the start). He took the time to answer my many questions in depth, and took great care to set realistic expectations about recovery and results. Thoroughly impressed (if a bit nervous about the procedure), I decided to go ahead and book the surgery. The pre- and post-operative care were first rate. While I noticed a significant improvement in my body shape after about three months of recovery, there were still some areas I wasn’t satisfied with (Dr. Sawan could not target them aggressively during the initial procedure for safety reasons). To my great satisfaction and respect, Dr. Sawan offered to conduct a follow up procedure to fine tune the results at no additional cost (I only had to pay the facility and anesthesiologist fees). After two rounds of surgery under Dr. Sawan’s care, the final results are incredible. I still can’t believe my before and after photos. For the first time in my life, I feel good about my body. It’s hard to quantify how valuable and transformative that is. I enthusiastically recommend Sawan Surgical Aesthetics for these reasons: - Dr. Sawan’s high level of skill, experience, and impeccable credentials. - Fantastic, life-changing results. - Honest and straightforward communication. He sets realistic expectations and delivers on his promises. - Transparent pricing with no hidden fees. - Reasonable cost given the complexity of the procedures and high level of post-operative care, and relative to national averages for similar procedures as reported by RealSelf and other sources. While certainly not cheap, it was worth every penny. - Outstanding pre- and post-operative care, with diligent follow up and communication. - Professional, courteous, and extremely helpful staff. I must have called and emailed them at least a dozen times with questions, and they were always prompt, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful. Thank you Ana and Anna!- Dr. Sawan is, in my experience, a man of very high integrity, and stands by the quality of his work. The follow up revision procedure he conducted at no cost vastly improved my results and satisfaction. He could have gouged me here, but didn’t, and was more concerned with my longterm results and happiness. - For bonus points, he has a great bedside manner, and treats his patients with dignity, compassion, and respect. I can attest that Sawan Surgical Aesthetics is an ethical, highly skilled, quality practice that treats its customers well, and cares deeply about patient satisfaction and outcomes; I highly recommend Dr. Sawan for anyone considering aesthetic enhancement."
