Dr Eshima is the best surgeon!! I did blepharoplasty with him in May. I decided to have it done because I always looked so tired. My upper lids were so heavy. I am so happy with my results, very natural, no pain or bruising, easy recovery. I LOVE my eyes, I look much younger. His office staff, Cathy and Magali are so amazing, helpful and always reachable. I live in Sacramento, I was recommended few places by another physician, after visiting few and seeing before and after I have decided to drive few hours to SF and it was worth it.” – M M

I am so grateful I found Dr. Eshima and his wonderful team members- Magaly and Kathy. Last December I had a rhinoplasty with Dr Eshima. I am so thrilled with the results and wish I had done the surgery sooner. The rhinoplasty changed my life- I was a happy person to begin with- but because of my rhinoplasty I feel more confident in social interactions and overall just happier.

I consulted with Dr. Eshima 6 months prior to my surgery. I knew instantly he was the one who would be my surgeon-he is the best. He is thorough, extremely detailed and clearly on top of his game. He is a perfectionist. He loves what he does and it shows. I was so impressed by his before/after photos and the caring demeanor of Magaly and Cathy. Everything was streamlined and organized from the consultation to booking the surgery date to scheduling the pre-op appointment.

After your surgery, Magaly and Cathy call you everyday for 1-2 weeks or until you politely let them know they no longer need to call and check in on you. The entire office treats you like family. My mom was so impressed by how well Dr. Eshima/Magaly/Cathy took care of me that she scheduled herself for a surgery later this year with their office. My step dad also plans on going to Dr Eshima for a consultation. Look no further-they are the best ☺” – A M
