I initially came to Dr. Ambe to have my eyelids lifted. Dr. Ambe and his staff made me feel so comfortable not only did I have blepharoplasty but the following month I had breast augmentation. My results are absolutely amazing! Dr. Ambe is incredible. As a former operating room nurse, I have seen and worked with many surgeons. You will not find a more skilled surgeon than Dr. Ambe!

Dr. Ambe and his staff made me feel comfortable from the time I first walked in the office. The professionalism and caring were apparent right from the beginning. The entire experience was wonderful, and I can not thank Dr. Ambe enough for the wonderful results I was able to achieve.

I had seen many surgeons over the last several years. It is an important decision when it comes to having someone operate on your face. I kept hearing Dr. Ambe’s name keep coming up, and I finally made the decision to see him in consultation. I could immediately sense that he was incredibly meticulous, everything from the feel of the office to the way in which he evaluated and explained everything to me. As soon as I reviewed his before and after portfolio for facial procedures, everything I had heard was confirmed. His results are incredible, and, most importantly, very natural. I had a facelift, browlift, and eyelift. I can honestly say that it was the best decision that I ever made to see him. Not only was his technical expertise unbelievable, but he also handled every aspect of the care with such attention to detail. Most importantly, his bedside manner was amazing. Everything I heard about him was true.

I had been referred to Dr. Ambe for a breast augmentation by 4 friends, each having had great results. What I found so refreshing about him was his warm and caring demeanor. He spends so much time with you, and I have no idea how he does it, because he is extremely busy. Going in for a consultation for breast surgery can be quite uncomfortable, and he has the ability to immediately make you feel comfortable. I can not say enough about the experience. I tell my friends not to think of seeing any one else.

If you are “shopping” for a Plastic Surgeon for a breast augmentation, I can honestly tell you that you should go straight to Dr. Ambe’s office. He knows every aspect of the procedure down to the very last detail. I have had friends that were dissatisfied with their results from other surgeons… they went to him and were taken care of appropriately, with incredible care and results. His prices are not inexpensive, but you get quality of care and results that are worth it.

Dr. Ambe’s office is first class all the way. I had a great experience. Not only is he very warm and caring, but everyone in his office is as well. They are professional in every sense of the word.

I came from Northern California to see Dr. Ambe. I was told by several people up in the Bay Area that he was the guy to see. It was well worth travelling the distance. He was incredible and his staff was incredible. If I can give advice to other people that are looking for a Plastic Surgeon, do not save a couple of hundred dollars here or there. Go see him. His bedside manner and meticulous nature are worth every penny.

I had an abdominoplasty performed by Dr. Ambe. All I can say is that it changed my life. He and his staff were so warm and caring, every step of the way. I cannot tell you what a phenomenal change there is in the shape of my abdomen. He is a true artist.

I am pretty thin, but I had a couple of areas on my outer thighs and hips that I needed liposuction on. I saw a whole slew of doctors, and then I saw Dr. Ambe. His demeanor is very genuine and he immediately instills confidence. Most importantly, he cares so much about the little details. I had an absolutely great result. I would recommend him to anyone without reservation. Don’t waste your time seeing a lot of surgeons. You see him, and you will realize why he gets great results.

Dr. Ambe is first class all the way. I had a great experience. He really knows breast surgery. I had known from my research that a breast lift combined with an augmentation was a technically difficult procedure, but I knew that is what was needed. He achieved the best shape that I could have ever imagined. He is so detailed, right down to the post-operative protocols for scar prevention. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised how smoothly everything went. It is because Dr. Ambe and his staff attend to every detail the way it should be.

I can guarantee that you will never find a surgeon or office staff that will take care of you like Dr. Ambe’s. They were absolutely incredible. . .I could have never imagined that having a breast augmentation could be so smooth and easy. Dr. Ambe and his staff truly do a great job of preparing their patients as to what to expect.

I had been thinking about a breast augmentation for several years, and I can honestly say that I saw at least 10 surgeons before I saw Dr. Ambe. After seeing him, interacting with the office staff, and actually having the opportunity to speak to some of his patients, there was no doubt in my mind that he was the right surgeon. My choice was correct, as I have had a fabulous result. I already have referred at least 7 friends of mine to see him.

You may want to see several surgeons regarding a procedure you are interested in, but I can guarantee that no surgeon or office will treat you with the professionalism and skill that Dr. Ambe’s office does.

I had been looking for a surgeon to perform a facelift on me. I did as much research as one possibly could, and I actually flew across the country to have Dr. Ambe operate on me. His reputation is incredible, and as soon as I met him and his staff, I could understand why. Everything about the experience was as it should have been. Dr. Ambe spent a tremendous amount of time explaining every aspect of the procedure. I was able to see wonderful examples of his work, and I was able to talk to some of his patients regarding their experience. The surgery center was top notch, and Dr. Ambe’s care after the procedure was meticulous and caring.

I saw over 20 surgeons spanning 3 years to find one that I could entrust to operate on my face. I had a browlift, eyelift, and facelift. The result has been unbelievable. Dr. Ambe is a true artist, and he will not settle for anything less than perfection.

I was very anxious about seeing anyone regarding a breast augmentation consultation. My friends had referred me to Dr. Ambe, and I immediately was made to feel comfortable. He definitely has a way about him that puts you at ease and instills this sense of confidence. He also is the consummate perfectionist.
