FYI, this occured about 2 years ago, but I decided to write this after I saw a HUGE ad from Dr. Shane Sheibani basically saying "I've fixed so many cosmetic surgery errors" and "Come to me to get your cosmetic surgery done right the first time"

Please please please do NOT go to this guy!!! Avoid him at all costs! Here's the story:

So I got approved to have a cosmetic surgery loan about 3 years ago..

After researching several physicians, I came across an ad in L.A. Weekly for the "New Me Institute" with 2 office locations in both L.A. and Beverly Hills. I didn't know anything or anybody who had cosmetic surgery before so I called Dr. Shane Sheibani's office (the New Me Institute) for a consultation. When I went in, Dr. Sheibani told me that he could do liposuction in 6 areas for only about 4 grand! I was impressed. He also outlined the areas that he would do. So we went to his office and he drew up the contract. I thought there might have been something fishy about it when he practically tried to force me to sign a contact saying that I would come back for a tummy tuck and that he would be my only cosmetic surgery physician for the next 3 years. I didn't think anything of it at the time. I ended up signing about 10 pages worth of agreements and waivers.

The day of my surgery, I went in and had the procedure done in 3 hours. The Anesthesiologist must have lost track of the "knock out" medicine he gave me because I woke up in the middle of the procedure! They had to increase the anesthesia. By the time I woke up, I was in the recovery room. Dr. Sheibani was no where to be found. About 2 minutes later, some woman came into the room and asked me to sit in a wheelchair, who then wheeled me outside onto Wilshire Blvd. where my boyfriend's car was waiting. Dr. Sheibani never bothered to check in and see how I was doing, or give me instructions on this "shaping garment" that I was supposed to wear for the next couple of weeks. I noticed that my garment was the wrong size. I asked him for a large and he gave me an extra-large, so I went back to his office and he refused to give me a new one so I had to go out and buy one.

I tried to schedule a follow-up appointment with him about 3 or 4 times over the next 3 weeks. It appeared that the swelling around my left hip was not going away. I finally got an appointment with him, where he said "wait another 3 weeks and we'll see if the swelling goes down. If it doesn't then I'll do a touch up". The garment stretched out, so I had to buy another new one.

After 3 more weeks (6 weeks since the surgery). I took the garment off and noticed that my left hip wasn't swollen...it was lopsided. He took out too much fat in the right hip and didn't touch my left hip at all. I became really upset so I called his office and demanded an appointment. The entire office staff gave me the run around for about a week, so I finally just showed up as a walk-in. I went into Dr. Sheibani's office in tears asking him to fix my hips. I also noticed from the puncture scars that he only liposuctioned 5 areas instead of 6 (like I paid for). He insisted that the missing 6th incision was used when he had to "re-do" another area twice. He looked at me in the exam room and said, verbatim, "we're going to have to do a touch up, but that will cost you an additional 1,000 dollars". I disagreed with him and said "I paid for 6 areas and you only did 5. Plus you made me uneven. I think you should do it for free"....This was his exact response "Well, I don't see anything wrong with your hips. If anything you can use buttock implants. Would that interest you?" After I screamed at him for a while, he actually had the nerve to say this (and I will NEVER forget this word-for-word): "I wouldn't worry about your hips. You look better with your clothes on anyway"

Since then, I have seen 3 different board-certified cosmetic surgeons who all told me that Dr. Sheibani first began his practice as a dermatologist. I also found out that he isn't exactly the most respected "cosmetic surgeon" in the medical community. Luckily, I found a new physician who is sympathetic to my situation (and who has actually seen SEVERAL of Dr. Sheibani's "mistake" patients over the past 5 years) and he is willing to try to corrext Dr. Sheibani's mistakes.

Did I mention that I'm still paying for the loan? Please do not go see this guy! You will regret it for the rest of your life (unless you have several thousand dollars to get it fixed) So in response to this a-hole wanna-be doctor's ad campaign, I say this:

If you want your cosmetic surgery done right the first time, go see someone else!

Dr Shane Sheibani

AUTHOR: Caroleflower - ()

I just have to say I'm in shock! Dr Sheibani did my breast aug almost 10 years ago, along with my friend! My breasts still look amazing & everybody thinks they are real! I have my mamogram every year, & I have had the techs ask me where did I have them done cause they look so good! Dr Shane was very compassionate & kind, & I could only afford over theuscle procedure, when I arrived bright & early..he began marking my chest & said "lets do this right, I want you to be a good example of my work so he did the implants under the muscle! Im so happy & proud of my breasts! I would have gone back to him again! I trusted him & sent another friend to him that was happy with her results too!!

All RESOLVED AND ALL GOOD- LET's MOVE ON WITH LIFE !

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (USA)

Listen CAT; I agree. I am sorry that I sounded disrespectful towards you. I apologize. But I am a healthcare administrator and as a mother and full-time working person in healthcare, I deal with all kinds of patients.
I love my patients who are mostly decent but some are really unrealistic, demanding and down-right malicious.

Even if we are healthcare providers, doctors, nurses, administrators, or  technologists; we are first human-beings. We are not perfect. We get upset; we get tired, we get frustrated and yes we do some times make mistakes. For the most part, almost all of us who are seasoned and have chosen to be in healthcare are committed to doing our absolute best and helping people. Who wants to work hard all day and not be successful!

What makes me upset is that Doctors are getting pounded; abused and accused all the times. I see it every day. They work ten times harder than any normal human-being is supposed to work; they walk into the operating room to help patients who have HIV or Hepatitis or all kinds of life threatening blood borne diseases to help them and they still are scapegoated by the medical board, insurance companies, Medicare, MediCal, hospitals, lawyers, and yes patients.  They get disrespected,
they get taken advantage of; they get sued all for personal gain of the people who have no appreciation for what these doctors mean.

Dr. Sheibani is also a human. He is no exception. He has spent his whole life wanting to be the best he can be and help people. He is also made of flesh and blood. He also gets tired, upset; happy and feels all the normal human feelings.

He may have not been sensitive enough to your feelings when you saw him last; but I promise you it must have not been intentional. I witnessed his work from very early in the morning till late at night; every day; watching every little detail and every little issue; because he cared. He really cared. I have worked with a huge number of doctors in my career; Dr. Sheibani is truly a great, kind person and he is a fantastic cosmetic surgeon and an artist. I personally witnessed his thousands of work on patients and their results. He is by far one of the most gifted cosmetic surgeons I have ever
seen; but yes, he would offer touchups if needed and rarely they were. Patients would only need to pay for the supplies or something which is usually a few hundred dollars.

Every surgery has risks and complications. There are absolutely no surgeries that dont. Additionally there are imperfections or slight irregularities and most of them are really due to how the peoples bodies heal.
There are no surgeons out there who dont have the same issues; I promise you. I have seen it. I was even involved in a trial of a prominent doctor who is on television all the time who was being sued for the some imperfection in the
results. Many plastic surgeons came and testified and they all unanimously stated that they have had the same issues in their practices. The doctor won as almost 95% or more of doctors do anyways. License issues are the same way; a whole
lot of allegations are usually brought by people for various secondary gains and at the end, almost none can be proven and the issue is resolved. Alleging and claiming is easy; the standard is proof.

Anyhow, I hope I helped clarify some of your concerns and issues. I was not in the office when you had your issues otherwise I would have helped you. I am sure the staff did offer you a touchup for a few hundred
dollars for the cost of the supplies and stuff (less than a thousand dollars). I wish you well and lets just close this issue as many many years have passed anyways. Good luck and god bless.

Medical Board of California obtains Interim Suspension Order temporarily
suspending the medical license of Beverly Hills physician

SACRAMENTO The medical license of Daniel Shane Davidson, also known as Shane Sheibani, Shahram Shane
Sheibani-Rad, Shahram Shahram Shebani-Rad, and Shane Shebanirad has been temporarily suspended by an Administrative Law Judge of the Office of  Administrative Hearings at the request of the Medical Board of California. "The mission of the Medical Board is public protection, and this action reflects the Board's ongoing commitment to that mission,"
said Linda Whitney, executive director of the Medical Board.

A Stipulated Settlement and Disciplinary Order was adopted by the Medical Board, effective September 10, 2009, for previous misconduct by Dr. Davidson. Among other terms and conditions, Dr. Davidson was placed on five years probation. In May of 2012, Dr. Davidson was ordered to submit to a psychiatric examination. The examination was scheduled for
June 27, 2012. During the examination, Dr. Davidson exhibited uncontrollable behavior and had to be escorted out of the physicians office. The medical examiner issued a report, expressing his opinion that Dr. Davidson suffers from a mental disorder, which substantially impairs his ability to practice medicine safely, and he would be a danger to the public if allowed to continue to practice medicine.

The Medical Board filed a Petition for an Ex Parte Interim Suspension Order, and the matter was heard by an Administrative Law Judge. The Judge ruled to suspend Dr. Davidsons medical license and ordered Dr. Davidson to immediately cease practicing medicine until a regularly noticed hearing could take place. This hearing is scheduled for August
6, 2012, in the Office of Administrative Hearings in San Diego.

The public record documents in this case can be accessed on our Web site at www.mbc.ca.gov under the heading Enforcement Public Documents.

Mr. Anonymous is a moron

AUTHOR: Barty - (United States of America)

For starters, you spelled her name wrong. It's "Cat" not "Kat". Secondly, why attack the name she used when you submitted your response anonymously? Third, I personally know Cat and she is not a large person so your comment, as well as Dr. Sheibani's comments about her being a "large person" are ridiculous and grounded in nothing more than childish name-calling. Fourth, Dr. Sheibani very well may have done many surgeries with excellent results; however, that does not dismiss the sheer fact that he self-proclaimed to stand "100% by his work" and then leaves the ones he drastically screws up out in the wind and then spends his time simply trying to down-play the reality of his own mistakes. This is precisely why he is NOT respect among REAL physicians who put the patient's first and money second. In fact, I'm willing to bet you're probably Dr. Sheibani himself submitting an anonymous complaint. Otherwise, why would you *assume* that Dr. Sheibani's incorrect comment about Cat being a "large person" without even heeding any bit of Cat's story.

Lastly, nothing you said, Mr. Anonymous, makes any sense whatsoever. You're probably just a pissed off little brown-noser with nothing better to do than act like a 13 year old online in the safety of your own home (probably alot like Dr. Sheibani himself). So, here's a piece of advice: grow a brain and go back to school. Or, better yet, take your head out of you own a** and join the Sheibani family and find some nice police officers to beat up!  

:)

To everyone else reading this: do you homework before signing a plastic surgery agreement on a napkin with a shady doctor operating a shady practice like New Me. There are MANY others out there who are not afraid to speak up against this fake doctor.

Go To H**l KAT

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (USA)

After reading this Kat or Cat or what ever your stupid name is; I got sick to my stomach. So many fat slobs come to cosmetic surgeons with over one hundred pounds of excess weight and instead of taking responsibility for their fat ugly bodies and exercising before to prevent the need for surgery or at least after to prevent the fat from coming back; they blame the doctors for being fat, ugly slobs. 

You were fat. The doctor told you that you need to exercise and lose weight and then you got upset because he told you the truth and decided to go on line and destroy his name and reputation. How dare you fat b**ch?!?

I bet you are still a fat slob and I don't think it ever occurred to you to get mad at yourself and take responsibility instead of blaming others people for your own fat lazy a**.

I was there in the practice for several years and Dr. Sheibani and his staff had done thousands of great surgeries. Face, breast and body. Dr. Sheibani is a great surgeon and a great artist and whatever these jealous idiots say out there is none-sense because they are unhappy with their own life. Cosmetic surgery is a very tough business. You get all kinds of crazy, psycho people who come in and expect miracles. even after you tell them all the risks and tell them what to do to avoid it, they go out there and act like morons and get upset when they cause themselves trouble. Of course that is not to say this is true for everyone, but no surgery is one hundred percent risk free and if someone does not accept the risks, then she/he has no business having surgery.

Correct, he is not well respected among his own peers. Regretfully, patients do not do their homework prior to paying these quacks.

AUTHOR: BEInformed - (U.S.A.)

as an ex-employee, i can tell you that you are one of many patients that have the same complaint. the only way to get this handled with integrity and with credibility is to file a complaint with the medical board of california. shane sheibani is not foreign to this process for he has had a few investigations take place that the boards have been doing. this is the only way to push towards him being placed into the right jurisdiction of the law.

often times, his problem with being honest with patients is the issue. he does not do confrontation well and therefore, ignoring his patients is problematic for the patient and causes the problem to be worsened. he cuts many corners in his practice and is deceitful to his many patients that especially have liposuction. you see with liposuction you can only have a certain amount removed at one time with surgery. the american boards of plastic surgery only allow up to 1500(?) litres be removed at one surgical setting time. often times, shane tells his patients he can do the number of areas they want and then post-operatively the patients complain why did you not do the number of areas i paid for? his response then is well either he did one area twice or he maxed out the number of cubic centimeters that could be done. then for the patient to get the number of areas, then they must pay again and go through another surgery. this is not the practice of a board certified plastic surgeon. shane sheibani is not a board certified cosmetic surgeon for there is NO SUCH THING! do your homework and file a complaint with the medical board to get your justice that you are due you once and for all.

A happy patient!!!

AUTHOR: Jessica - (U.S.A.)

I couldn't even begin to explain how happy I am after my surgery on November 13th! I had such a great experience and would do it again in a heartbeat. My surgeon was Dr. Shane Sheibani in Los Angeles California. He did an amazing job. It has been three weeks and my incisions are almost invisible. I have been told by a friend that I have the best boob job that she has ever seen. His office staff has also been extremely helpful since I live in Florida but went to California for surgery.

I will backtrack back to the day of surgery. I know that I have blogged here and there, but now I have had a chance to get my thoughts together. Day 1 Surgery day, I was scared thinking that the pain was going to be horrible. I went to the doctor's office bright and early and was greeted by the friendly staff. I changed into the garments they gave me for surgery and then they started the IV. I don't like needles at all, so that was the worst part of everything! I then remember going into the surgery room and talking with the anesthesiologist. She was a very sweet woman who soothed my fears. She told me that she was going to give me some happy drugs and the next thing I know, I hear people in the room asking about my job etc. Surgery was over! I couldn't believe it. I felt a little pressure on my chest but NO PAIN! I was wheeled into the recovery room and monitored for an hour. I felt great! My friend came to get me and took me back to the house and I slept. I was told to drink lots of fluids and I did. I had a water and Gatorade right by the bed and took my meds as prescribed. I never felt pain the whole time after surgery. I felt soreness, and it was hard to move my arms, but I was expecting the worst. I am pleased to tell you that this was not a painful experience at all!

I did sleep a lot my first week after surgery, but flew home 6 days later. The plane ride home was a little uncomfortable since I didn't bring my travel pillow, but all is well! When I arrived home I checked my voicemail and saw that I had a missed call from Dr. Sheibani's office. They are the most caring and wonderful staff ever. I am so happy with my experience. Thank you! Jessica

Here is My Comment...New Me Rocks!

AUTHOR: A Patient - (U.S.A.)

Dear CAT or what ever your real name is:

First off; I am an eternally grateful patient of Dr. Sheibani and New Me. I have been a patient for years. I had my Breasts done by Dr. Sheibani, I had liposuction of my whole body by Dr. Sheibani and I had a mini-Abdominoplasty by him as well. I had a nose job a few years ago by Dr. Sheibani and I will always continue to see him for any of my needs.

Let me add to say that I feel and look fantastic and I have just been transformed. I really look great. When I see my own before and after pictures and when I see others on his website; I know that his work is fantastic. My whole life has improved as a result of my surgeries. I took my mother to him as well. My mother had her two face lifts; neck lift; liposuction of the neck; upper and lower eyelid; cheek surgery and liposuction of her whole body. Matter of fact my mother had several facial surgeries by Dr. Sheibani.

I have taken numerous friends to Dr. Sheibani who is truly an incredible Doctor and a great Surgeon and more importantly a great guy. He is extremely professional; conscientious; competent; and caring. A lot of people that I speak with have heard of Dr. Sheibani and New Me. Dr. Sheibani is one of the most sought after surgeons in Los Angeles. The fact that he agreed to do your work for less money than he should have charged you should be something you should thank him for. He does that sometimes to help people. He cares. We all know that. No body can make everyone happy.

But what is great is that, I have on numerous occasions talked to his other patients in the waiting room; clinic or even accidentally bumped into them in the stores and malls when we talked about cosmetic surgery and they all rave about him as I do. He is an all around nice guy, but he is by far one of the absolute best surgeons in L.A.

The New Me and the staff are amazing too. The girls in the front are always smiling and make us welcome when we go in to see the doctor. The girls on the phone are wonderful. They take care of us as soon as we call. Dr. Sheibani is extremely busy, but the girls put the calls through or take a message; make an appointment for us as efficiently as possible. Although the building they are in is not the newest building in Beverly Hills or Los Angeles, the office is always spotless, clean and serine.

I have referred many friends to Dr. Sheibani and New Me and my friends have referred other friends. By now; I am sure whoever has looked up Dr. Sheibani and New Me has already come to my conclusion, which is that Dr. Sheibani and New Me are in fact a must for anyone who is interested in cosmetic surgery to at least have a consultation at. Meeting him will do the rest.

But here is the reason I chose to comment on your blog to begin with. Dr. Sheibani and his staff may have been very nice to you in responding to your stuff; and held back; but that is just because that is the type of people they really are; they are genuinely nice people.

Frankly, as Dr. Sheibani has stated even on his website; you should choose your surgeon according to his capabilities and merits and not the cheapest on the block. You did choose to go to Dr. Sheibani, so kudos on that; you should be happy that you paid for one of the best. I would not complain about that if I were you.

I don't believe a word you have said here and I am sure you are full of it; and then at the end you have the audacity to call my doctor a name, using a profanity that only goes further to discredit you. How Dare You!

You say you were upset that Doctor Sheibani did not see you while you were in the recovery room. In every surgical center in the world, there are recovery room nurses that are paid to take care of patients. Surgeons don't do that. He probably was in the operating room, operating on another patient while you were in the recovery room. That is what surgeons do. What did you expect; for him to come sit next to your bed, hold your hand? New Me's several great nurses have taken care of my mother and I; and if you look on their site, in the testimonials, you can see that their nurses have gotten praised for the great service they provide to patients.

You claim you got the wrong size of liposuction garment and you had to buy a new one. Well; you are supposed to try on garments before you buy them. You seem to take no responsibility and expect others to pay for you. You expected to get another liposuction garment free? And even after you shrank in size, after your surgery; you wanted to get another liposuction garment free?

Surgery has risks. Even in the best of surgeon's hands; and Dr. Sheiibani is in fact one of the best. That is a given. That is why you are given the information and asked to sign an agreement that you understand the risks. You are lucky you had no complications. Just a bit less fat removed than you wanted. And now you are upset you had to pay to have more fat removed after he liposuction the maximum he could remove in one surgery?

I am sorry but that is how I feel.

AUTHOR: Unknown - (U.S.A.)

I have known Dr. Sheibani for a number of years. I know many patients who have had procedures done by him who are extremely happy with his work. He recently did a rhinoplasty on my nose. My nose was very long and hooked and some of my cartilage was missing. Dr. Shiebani did an amazing job and for the first time in my life I feel confident about my appearance. The care I received was first class not only from Dr. Shiebani but also from his post surgical team.

Dr. Sheibani did NOT begin his career as a dermatologist. He attended medical school on the east coast and did his surgical training there. He is by qualification a surgeon and fellow of the academy of cosmetic surgery. He is one of the most patient, caring and compassionate human beings.

I know people who have gone to top plastic surgeons in BH and NY who were not happy with the work done by their doctor and they paid a fortune for their surgery/

Dr. Shiebanis new surgery center is state of the art and his current staff are
the best. He has a post-op RN by the name of Chris, who sat by my bed in the recovery room and monitored me until I was ready to go home.

Dr. Shiebani has many photos of actual proceedures on his website at www.newmeinstitute.com. and numerous patients that are eternally grateful to him for the life changing surgery that he performed.

It really upsets me to hear about other doctors saying bad things about Dr. Sheibani especially when it isn't true. The patient quoting "He said-she said" can cause unnecessary pain to a good man and a wonderful surgeon. Maybe these other guys don't like the fact that he offers the same procedures at less cost!!!
Regardless, it is unprofessional and unethical to discuss another doctors work with a patient.

This patient may have been unhappy---why not speak to the many who are thrilled with their cosmetic surgery

You Must Read This:

AUTHOR: New Me - (U.S.A.)

YOU MUST READ THIS SECTION IN ITS ENTIRETY. WE GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL LEARN SOME DISTINCTIONS THAT WILL LEAVE YOU ASTONISHED. This is not meant to be just another ad on the internet; it can literally save you lots of headache and grief. Why we strongly urge you to choose Doctor Sheibani for your Cosmetic Surgery?

There are many good Cosmetic Surgeons out there. But here is why we feel Dr. Sheibani is the Cosmetic Surgeon to see.

Dr. Shane Sheibani is a Diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery and a Fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery; he has been in practice as a Cosmetic Surgeon for many years and during this time he has performed thousands of Advanced; Revisional, Corrective and Reconstructive Cosmetic Surgeries of face, nose, breasts and body. He loves revisional corrective cosmetic surgery because by nature, these types of surgeries are more exciting, challenging and rewarding. He loves to receive referrals of Revision cases from all his colleagues and feels that his job is to serve the community by serving them with his God-given gifts as a Corrective, Reconstructive Cosmetic Surgeon. Dr. Sheibani has received a Best plastic Surgeon award which is demonstrated on our website DrNewMe.com.

YOU MUST KNOW THAT: According to the American Medical Association, Cosmetic Surgery is a distinct and separate specialty to Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

There are many good Cosmetic Surgeons out there, some are Aesthetically trained Plastic Surgeons some of whom have learned through trial and error, and some are Fellowship trained Cosmetic Surgeons. You must be careful to select a Cosmetic Surgeon with the right type and extent of experience for your intended surgery that you have in mind.

What I am about to tell you is going to probably save you a whole lot of grief and heart ache; and perhaps several revision surgeries.... Unlike what most media try to lead you to believe and make you think, most Plastic Surgeons immediately after they complete their Plastic Surgery residency hardly have had enough experience in Cosmetic Surgery to be qualified to do Cosmetic Surgery independently. Being a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon by itself alone is most likely not enough qualification to do Cosmetic Surgery. It takes surgeons years of experience of performing and managing hundreds of a particular type of Cosmetic Surgery cases to become proficient in Cosmetic Surgery of that type. Plastic Surgery residency includes a large range of diverse training, mostly non-cosmetic surgery training such as training in the treatment of injuries and complications associated with burn, accidents, cancer, skin ulcers or functional problems such as hand injuries.

Most Plastic Surgeons after finishing their residency are lucky if they have done a hand full of Cosmetic Surgeries (such as Nose Jobs; Breast Lifts; Face lifts, liposuction and etc.) on their own as independent surgeons. That is why; they usually need more experience in Cosmetic Surgery. Most of them are not interested in obtaining official training in Cosmetic Surgery so they choose to learn Cosmetic Surgery over the course of years of practice, generally by trial and error.
But now (for the last several years), there is a better option for them. Only a selected few however can succeed at obtaining a position in and attend official fellowship training in Cosmetic Surgery where they can learn the true skills of Cosmetic Surgery from an expert preceptor that has been pre-qualified. Only after the completion of this Fellowship training eventually the young doctors are allowed to sit for the Board examination of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.

The American Board of Cosmetic Surgery is the ONLY board that represents Qualified and Fellowship trained Cosmetic Surgeons (in contrast to Plastic Surgeons) who have had the experience of participating in specifically hundreds of Cosmetic Surgery cases during their training. If a surgeon is in fact a Plastic Surgeon or another Board Certified Surgeon and then completes a one or two year full fellowship training in Cosmetic Surgery and he proceeds to apply to sit for the examination of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, only then he may be qualified to take that examination. It is a very difficult examination and only 60% or so of the doctors pass it the first time; and it includes both a written and an oral examination. Check out the Required Qualifications of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery for yourself and you will truly be amazed.

Most Cosmetic or Plastic Surgeons are not interested to obtain the additional required training that qualifies them to take this examination. Some organizations are fighting to take the public's attention away from the importance of this examination. www.AmericanBoardCosmeticSurgery.org is the website where you can learn more about the importance of adequate training in Cosmetic Surgery. If you are looking to have cosmetic surgery, I suggest you select a highly skilled Cosmetic Surgeon preferably one who is a Diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.

You know what else you MUST KNOW? After a surgeon is in fact qualified as a Diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, then and only then can he be qualified to apply to achieve the level and status of a Fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery. AACS is an amazing organization with thousands of members and is the largest organization representing the specialists in the field of Cosmetic Surgery. Only a hand full of surgeons each year who are Diplomates of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery and have completed hundreds of Cosmetic Surgeries and have successfully met the many stringent qualifications of the AACS are deemed qualified to be considered highly qualified in Cosmetic Surgery and are Bestowed the title of FELLOW of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery.

Again; I suggest you select a Cosmetic Surgeon who not only is a Diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery but also, he has been Qualified as a Fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS).

YOU MUST READ THIS SECTION IN ITS ENTIRETY. WE GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL LEARN SOME DISTINCTIONS THAT WILL LEAVE YOU ASTONISHED. This is not meant to be just another ad on the internet; it can literally save you lots of headache and grief. Why we strongly urge you to choose Doctor Sheibani for your Cosmetic Surgery?

There are many good Cosmetic Surgeons out there. But here is why we feel Dr. Sheibani is the Cosmetic Surgeon to see.

Dr. Shane Sheibani is a Diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery and a Fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery; he has been in practice as a Cosmetic Surgeon for many years and during this time he has performed thousands of Advanced; Revisional, Corrective and Reconstructive Cosmetic Surgeries of face, nose, breasts and body. He loves revisional corrective cosmetic surgery because by nature, these types of surgeries are more exciting, challenging and rewarding. He loves to receive referrals of Revision cases from all his colleagues and feels that his job is to serve the community by serving them with his God-given gifts as a Corrective, Reconstructive Cosmetic Surgeon. Dr. Sheibani has received a Best plastic Surgeon award which is demonstrated on our website DrNewMe.com.

YOU MUST KNOW THAT: According to the American Medical Association, Cosmetic Surgery is a distinct and separate specialty to Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

There are many good Cosmetic Surgeons out there, some are Aesthetically trained Plastic Surgeons some of whom have learned through trial and error, and some are Fellowship trained Cosmetic Surgeons. You must be careful to select a Cosmetic Surgeon with the right type and extent of experience for your intended surgery that you have in mind.

What I am about to tell you is going to probably save you a whole lot of grief and heart ache; and perhaps several revision surgeries.... Unlike what most media try to lead you to believe and make you think, most Plastic Surgeons immediately after they complete their Plastic Surgery residency hardly have had enough experience in Cosmetic Surgery to be qualified to do Cosmetic Surgery independently. Being a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon by itself alone is most likely not enough qualification to do Cosmetic Surgery. It takes surgeons years of experience of performing and managing hundreds of a particular type of Cosmetic Surgery cases to become proficient in Cosmetic Surgery of that type. Plastic Surgery residency includes a large range of diverse training, mostly non-cosmetic surgery training such as training in the treatment of injuries and complications associated with burn, accidents, cancer, skin ulcers or functional problems such as hand injuries.

Most Plastic Surgeons after finishing their residency are lucky if they have done a hand full of Cosmetic Surgeries (such as Nose Jobs; Breast Lifts; Face lifts, liposuction and etc.) on their own as independent surgeons. That is why; they usually need more experience in Cosmetic Surgery. Most of them are not interested in obtaining official training in Cosmetic Surgery so they choose to learn Cosmetic Surgery over the course of years of practice, generally by trial and error.
But now (for the last several years), there is a better option for them. Only a selected few however can succeed at obtaining a position in and attend official fellowship training in Cosmetic Surgery where they can learn the true skills of Cosmetic Surgery from an expert preceptor that has been pre-qualified. Only after the completion of this Fellowship training eventually the young doctors are allowed to sit for the Board examination of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.

The American Board of Cosmetic Surgery is the ONLY board that represents Qualified and Fellowship trained Cosmetic Surgeons (in contrast to Plastic Surgeons) who have had the experience of participating in specifically hundreds of Cosmetic Surgery cases during their training. If a surgeon is in fact a Plastic Surgeon or another Board Certified Surgeon and then completes a one or two year full fellowship training in Cosmetic Surgery and he proceeds to apply to sit for the examination of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, only then he may be qualified to take that examination. It is a very difficult examination and only 60% or so of the doctors pass it the first time; and it includes both a written and an oral examination. Check out the Required Qualifications of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery for yourself and you will truly be amazed.

Dr. Sheibani,
After wearing braces from two different Orthodontists for four and a half years, I still did not feel comfortable with my own personal appearance. I stil wanted to improve my appearance a little more. I identified the problemafter several years of close evauation and study and I realized the problem that I was caused by my upper lip's unusual abnormality and deformity. To resolve this deformity, I visisted as least twelve different doctors, including Oral-Maxilofacial Surgeons and a plastic surgeon at UCLA. The oral surgeons I saw told me I would need surgery on my upper lip but they did not know a procedure or a way to do it. the plastic surgeons I saw told me that the only way I could change my image was by moving my upper jaw. I even saw a few other plastic surgeons, including a Havard graduated Plastic Surgeon. He said that he could do nothing for me and matter of fact returned my consultation fee. These plastic surgeons told me to accept the way I look and just live with it. Emotionally this was devastating. After countless months of all this frustration, I heard about you Dr. Sheibani. When I originally met with you and asked you for help, I was ecstatic to find out that you siad you would probably be able to help me. I appreciated all of the time you took to learn what the problem was that was bothering me. You met with me on three different occasions and finally against your other colleagues' recommendations just for the sake of helping another person, you devised an incredible new laser and plastic reconstructive technique to correct my upper lip deformity. Dr Sheibani, I love what you have done for me. I will forever be greatful for what you have done!!!

Dr. Sheibani,
Thank you very much for the excellent job you did with my augmentation. I was nervous at first as I knew it would be a huge change. But finally I was able to fulfill my life long dream because of the excellent prices you offered.

I find you and your staff to be most helpful and understanding, and the staff at the surgery rooms were very gentle, thoughtful, and caring which made a big difference too.

I appreciate everything that "NewMe" has done for me and wont hesitate to recommend your services to friends. ~ Many Thanks Angela

Dear Medical Director of New Me,

I am a perfectionist and for years I wanted my lips augmented but no place was good enough. Finally, after my consultation at your facility I felt at home. I tell you, you have a good thing. From the receptionist to the Front/Back Office to the Staff at the surgical center, my experience was nothing short of excellent. Above all, the expertise and mannerism of your surgeon, Dr. Sheibani, has been a pleasure. Thank you a whole lot for the new me. ~ I love you Sharon

Dr. Dr. Sheibani,

It has been seven months since my face lift and I writing to express my heartfelt gratitude; your operation has restored my confidence in my appearance, and with hardly any real pain at all.

I want you to know that people have had a really spectacular response to your work. I stayed inside for 2 weeks after the operation, but on the 15 th day I went back out into the world having told only one person about the procedure. Absolutely everyone told me how good I looked in a beard! You should have grown a beard years ago they said, It suits your face so well they told me. They saw a huge change, but thought it was my beard! Of course, it was the contour that you had created that they perceived through the beard that they were really responding to, without knowing it. Later, when I shaved the beard, people who knew me commented on how much good it had done my face to give it a rest from shaving! And strangers at the dog park, in the supermarket, at the gym asked me over and over if I was a movie star'. One day, a guy in the sauna swore he knew me from television but couldn't remember which show I was on. And then everyone else in the sauna started to name shows and asked me if I was an actor! Now, at the seven month mark, swelling has subsided, tissues have healed, the work has had time to relax. I now no longer get the movie star remarks; but people still feel compelled to comment all the time on how well I am looking, how healthy. Of course, what they are really admiring is not my beard, my face or my healthy look, but your artistic eye, and surgical skill.

It is a very, very nice feeling indeed to have confidence restored at age 55, and the gratitude I have for you cannot be deeper or more genuine. I will always with you well, Dr. Sheibani.
________________________________________
Dear Dr Sheibani,

I just wanted to write a short note to thank you for being my surgeon and to let you know that I feel you are an asset to the medical community of Cosmetic Surgery.

As a woman it is easy to lose sight of what are considered healthy changes when wanting to delve into cosmetic makeovers. We are constantly bombarded with pictures of perfection and many of us are striving to get as close to that as possible without necessarily taking the time and common sense to look at things from a medical perspective. I believe that many women, including myself included forget that although it is cosmetic, it is still surgery and that makes it serious business.

As a registered nurse, I know how important it is to be informative and honest with patients. My hat is off to you for not sacrificing patient safety, ethics, and integrity to give us what we think we want without looking at all of the ramifications of the glamorous but serious surgery.

Thank you for taking the time to explain to me the small intricate dynamics of liposuction and all of the things to consider when having that procedures performed and re-performed. I know that you gave me the best professional information and I am grateful to you for doing so. Overall, I am very pleased with the results of my procedures. I believe that I have made an excellent selection having you as my surgeon. Bravo Dr. Sheibani. Keep up the fine work.

Sincerely,
Denise

I feel like a teenager again. It's only been a little over two weeks and I almost have the figure I had in my early 20's late teens. I can't wait until all the swelling goes down. I am so happy with your work. I can't thank you enough.

When people say looks don't matter, they're lying. I'm even getting treated better at work.

Thank you so very much for making me feel good about myself again.

Dear Dr. Sheibani,

Thank you for your time and attention on Wednesday, March 19 th. I have really enjoyed the new me and the increased fun I a, experiencing when I go dancing . I believe true beauty comes from within, but as a doctor in holistic health I know that the optimal feeling of well-being that we all want in life includes an outer beauty which reflects our inner hopes and dreams.

As a single woman in Los Angeles approaching 60 years of age I had found myself becoming somewhat invisible to the opposite sex. That has all changed thanks to your help and ability. I especially appreciate the naturalness of the look you have given me. I didn't want to look like I was wearing a mask, and lets face it, I have fair thin skin which tends to sag easily. You have given me a lift that looks believable.

Because I believe in the gift you give women, I believe my holistic skills would compliment your work with special needs women who are motivated to look good but need help with diet, exercise and/or smoking in order to be good candidates for your surgical skills. On Wednesday, I spoke to you about self-hypnosis, and upon reflection. I would like to propose a unique personalized package you could offer special needs clients.

I propose a package plan which would include a holistic diet and/or smoking evaluation and consultation, self-hypnosis training, prescription aids as indicated (for example: Wellbutrin or a mild diet pill), exercise recommendations, and help with hairstyle and make-up which gives a post surgery finishing touch. I would provide these services, giving you a written evaluation and recommendation which you could approve. I would also provide telephone follow up to keep the client on track, reporting to you if there were any problems. We need to determine a fair price for this package, both for you and me, which would be included as part of the surgical price estimate.

I am uniquely qualified to help provide these services not only because of my doctorate and extensive training in Holistic Health and Healing (which includes diet and lifestyle), but also because I am certified personal trainer and a licensed award winning Cosmetologist (Sak's Fifth Avenue of Beverly Hills: 1 st place, Total Look 1992).

In experiencing you as my doctor I was struck by your attention to detail and warmth of feeling. Helping people to look, feel, and act their best is a wonderful mission in life. I hope I can join you in creating a program that helps special-needs clients move past outdated and hurtful habits and the feeling they are missing the joy of being all they can be.

Thank you for your time and attention,

Dr. Louise Camille

Dear Dr. Sheibani and your staff,

I'm taking this time to let you know how much I really appreciate you work I didn't really know or understand how much work it takes for the type of surgery (Breast Augmentation) you did on Renee. All I can say is thanks and that I'm very pleased with your work, and what you did for us (you know what you did) we can't even thank you enough.

I'll tell you I was very skeptical about most of the surgeons that do cosmetic surgery, with all the rumors you hear and things I was very afraid. But after we talked to you and heard your story, we realized how you work I was very calmed. Very professional and very caring. I know that's why you love your work and you're very good at it. We are very, very pleased.

As for the men out there that are skeptical don't be this man does great work, I'm a witness and I have seen cosmetic surgery and you should be at ease with Dr. Sheibani he's great, he has turned me into a boob man which really wasn't my favorite part of the woman's body but I tell you now, it has made my life a lot more exciting, don't worry you are in good hands with him, if you do as you're told, everything will come out great.

Thanks Dr. we really appreciate you as a person and as a Dr. God bless you and your practice.

I am in my early 30s and I found that the weight was not coming off like it use to, so I wanted to get liposuction. I went to one doctor to get more information. Then I saw an ad for the New Me Surgical Institute, a Medical Corporation and decided to check it out. When I came in, Dr. Sheibani was so nice, I thought something was wrong. He answered all my questions, gave me his background, then when he pulled out his marker and begin to sculpture my body. I had consulted with another doctor previously, and Dr. Sheibani was far more detail, the thing that impressed me was that he wanted me to look good.

I am one of those people who grew up in the south and we do not so things like this. I changed my mind twice, but one day I ran into a patient of Dr. Sheibani and she shared the total experience. I even asked the staff questions and they always had the right answers. When something is right it is right. After my surgery, I woke up and Steven was sitting there with a smile. I appreciated that.

I pray to God to continue to bless the hands of Dr. Sheibani, and his staff and their families. Los Angeles, is so full of phonies and people who try to get over, well that is not the case with New Me Surgical Institute, a Medical Corporation. They make you feel like a good home cooked Sunday meal at Mamma's house!!!

Dear Dr. Sheibani,

First of all I want to take an opportunity and truly thank you for the great work you have done on my breast augmentation. I can't tell you how much I like and enjoy me new look, and to be honest with you, thank your wonderful work, sometimes I even get confused if I had ever done surgery., it feels like I've always had beautiful looking breast. I'm very glad that after my on going research for plastic surgery doctor, I had finally found you, and the only reason I did that because I saw pictures of your work that were not even close to what I had seen in other doctors offices. At first I was really nervous about all surgery things, but after coming to your office for consultation, I was really sure and secure of my decision. And now that I know you I will definitely have my Abdominoplasty surgery done by you, no doubt about that. I also wanted to tell you that besides being a great doctor, you are also a wonderful and caring person. Also special thanks to your wonderful staff; Janice, Steve, Diana, they are all amazing people. In conclusion, I wish you all Happy New Year, joyful life, success in everything you do and I'm really looking forward to seeing you again.

Thank you very much again your patient,

There is a wonderful sense of calm and confidence that radiates from every person. My surgery was successful, no complications, no infections and I was not sick immediately after the surgery. Dr. Lebowitz was phenomenal. I look so beautiful and for the first time in my life I have a flat stomach. I look like a sculpture of Venus, but with arms. My Liposuction was a dream come true and I feel beautiful, sexy, and more confident. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, bottom, back and stomach. You are truly an artist.

Thank you,

New Me Five-Star Standard of Quality Guarantee

AUTHOR: New Me - (U.S.A.)

Dear CAT:


As the thousands of our patients can attest to, we are committed to the highest standard of care and service in cosmetic surgery. Below we will have posted some of our patients' testimonials from multitude of satisfied patients who continue to refer their friends and family to us. Our success is owed to our wonderful patients. We love them and they love us.

Unlike most other cosmetic surgery practices we have two guarantees. Although no one; including the patient can guarantee as to how the nature of a patient's body will heal; we still do our best to keep our patients satisfied. Our TOUCH-UP guarantee as well as our service guarantee is mentioned on our website. This TOUCH-UP Guarantee where you would need to only pay for operating room and anesthesia in case of a need for more surgery related to the first procedure is mentioned in the documents that you had signed before your surgery and is word by word from our website www.DrNewMe.com.


Unlike any other Cosmetic Surgery Practice we have 2 GUARANTEES!

New Me Five-Star Standard of Quality Guarantee

New Me Five-Star Standard of Customer Service Guarantee



#1 - The New Me Five-Star Standard of Quality Guarantee
(TOUCH UP SURGERY - POST OPERATIVE YEAR)

At the New Me Surgical Institute is committed to providing the highest standard of quality care in Cosmetic Surgery. We go out of our way to provide the best results possible because we strongly believe that "the better our patients look the better we look".

The surgeons at the New Me Surgical Institute are some of the best surgeons in the profession of cosmetic surgery. Even for the best and most skilled surgeons in the world, only approximately 50% of the outcome and result is contributed to the surgeon's work. The other 50% depends primarily on the complex nature of each individual patient's body and the unpredictable and different healing capacity of each individual.

Hence the most ethical, honest, most proficient and experienced cosmetic Surgeons in the world under no circumstances can guarantee perfect or even good results.

Sometimes a procedure has to be repeated. Approximately less than 2% of the patients undergoing cosmetic surgery may need a touch-up procedure to improve the results. In the event a patient should need a touch up surgery within a one year period following the surgery there will be no surgical professional fees (surgeons' fees) charged to the patient; except for a minimum operating room fee of $950.00 for use of the O.R., Surgical tray and anesthesia.

If you have any concerns about your results, you can always contact our Medical Director, Dr. Shane Sheibani, who will gladly address your concerns

As you know; you had the maximum safe limit of one session of liposuction during your surgery with us in 2004, and by law WE HAD TO STOP. You are a relatively large person and it is obvious that you most likely need more liposuction than one session.

So, the fact that you were asked to pay for the operating room and anesthesia only (about $950) and no surgical fee for the surgeon is not a surprise. However; we are always here to serve our patients the best way possible. We LOVE our patients, so we continue to encourage our patients to always communicate with us.

If we have to somehow modify a policy to accommodate or help our patients out; we always consider it. The better our patients look and the happier they are; the better we look and the happier we are. That is our Fundamental Policy. The reason for our existence is to be of service to our patients. That's all.

EVERY INDIVIDUAL PATIENBT IS EQUALLY IMPORTANT TO US. Every one truly matters. Again; we are sorry that you feel that your experience may have not been as glorious as thousands of our other patients' experiences have been.

Dear Cat

AUTHOR: New Me - (U.S.A.)

Dear Cat:

Let me start by saying that we are an advocate of our patients and we love caring for them. That is exactly the secret to our success as a Cosmetic Surgery practice and to Doctor Sheibani's success as a Cosmetic Surgeon.

First off; we don't know who you are and if in fact you are a patient of our practice at all. You fail to give your name here and we seriously suspect that this note was generated or instigated by a competitor who has stooped low enough to do this.

It is not a professional conduct for one professional to speak negatively of another colleague to try to enhance themselves, so we do not believe this type of behavior could have occurred in our profession. A professional does not need to state negative about others in order to compete but simply he or she can share his or her own positive attributes.

If you have been in fact a patient of our practice, we invite you to share your actual name and your own before and after pictures on this site. We will then be able to demonstrate the amazing level of improvement you have received after the surgeries obtained at our facility. Judging from what our thousands of patients have shared with us over the years, and the award we have received for our quality of cosmetic surgery performed by Dr. Sheibani, we are absolutely sure that you have gotten a great deal of improvement in your appearance after the surgery you received with us. We have received an award, testimonials and before and after pictures to help demonstrate our quality of work. Check out our website for yourself www.DrNewMe.com.

We care about every one of our patients and we want each and every one of them to be very happy. What I am about to share with you here is meant to help educate you and the public. Your complaint above is based on false and insufficient and/or misleading information; some of which most likely has been generated by our competitors who due to professional rivalry, jealousy or competition have the intention of damaging the excellent reputation that our practice has developed in the Cosmetic Surgery industry over the years.

Any unprofessional, irresponsible, unethical and selfish individual can slander others carelessly, especially if it benefits them. They can simply claim others said those things. If in fact you have heard any negative remarks from other doctors regarding Dr. Sheibani or New Me Institute, you must mention their names; otherwise, lack of a name is a clear sign that your statements are baseless allegations.

Let me take the time to educate you and the other potential patients who read this so that we accomplish at least two things: 1) We help educate you and 2) We prove to the public that in fact www.NewMeInstitute.com and www.DrNewMe.com is one of the highest quality leading cosmetic surgery practices in Southern California that they can trust to have their cosmetic surgery by.

On behalf of our organization and Dr. Sheibani, our excellent medical director I will gladly respond to your allegations that:

1) You did not have enough liposuction for the money you paid.
2) Dr. Sheibani was a dermatologist in the past
3) You did not receive an excellent service


We at the www.NewMeInstitute.com are always available to serve our patients and we would like you to be happy as thousands of our other patients have been over the years. Dr. Sheibani, our Medical Director is a recognized Cosmetic Surgeon who does most of the surgeries in our practice, with the experience of performing thousands of advanced, revisional, corrective, reconstructive cosmetic surgeries of face, nose, breasts and body. He is constantly and never-endingly stressing the importance of service to all our patients; he truly and whole heartedly cares about people.

He constantly tells every one of the staff in the practice, in our weekly meetings and daily, to be sensitive to the other (delete the word other) patients and their needs, he stresses the importance of maintenance of our five-Star FIVE-STAR standard of care. He is absolutely and wholeheartedly committed to the highest standard of care in Cosmetic Surgery and to FIVE-STAR customer service.

That is why he was selected to receive an award of excellence in cosmetic surgery as demonstrated on our website www.drnewme.com and has had hundreds of testimonials from our satisfied patients, some of which are demonstrated on our website www.drnewme.com. Although; almost all of our patients are extremely happy and appreciative of the improvement they have gotten after having surgery with us; we also understand that one can't make everyone happy all of the time; and in some cases; what the patients may expect are not necessarily what is realistically possible.

Put a line of space here.

Dr. Sheibani is a Diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery (www.AmericanBoardCosmeticSurgery.org) which is the only Board board that recognizes true cosmetic surgeons who have taken and passed an oral and written exam in Cosmetic Surgery. He is also a Fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (www.cosmeticsurgery.org). Please read some of the articles on our website www.drNewme.com to learn as to how important those designations are and how difficult they are to obtain.

Never the less, Dr. Sheibani loves people as well as his colleagues and he is an advocate of caring for all individuals on earth. He loves helping and supporting others. Even though he does corrective cosmetic surgery, he is very careful not to ever state anything negative about another colleague or person.

Dr. Sheibani is in fact one of the excellent cosmetic surgeons in town here in Beverly Hills/Los Angeles. He is highly trained and qualified to perform all gametes of general cosmetic surgery and perhaps more so than most doctors you claim to have said the slanderous false statements that you placed on this complaint. The reason Dr. Sheibani loves Revisional Cosmetic surgery is that he loves to be challenged and utilize his God given gifts to the maximum benefit of others.

Although there are numerous Dermatologists that are excellent Cosmetic Surgeons, and that is nothing to apologize for, Dr. Sheibani matter of fact started his training in surgery at one of the Affiliated Programs of Prestigious Yale University School of Medicine) as most doctors practicing Cosmetic or Plastic Surgery do. You stated in your complaint that: I have seen 3 different board-certified cosmetic surgeons who all told me that Dr. Sheibani first began his practice as a dermatologist. I also found out that he isn't exactly the most respected 'cosmetic surgeon' in the medical community.

Luckily, I found a new physician who is sympathetic to my situation (and who has actually seen SEVERAL of Dr. Sheibani's 'mistake' patients over the past 5 years) and he is willing to try to correct Dr. Sheibani's mistakes.! Again, your statement here is not supported by any facts or proof and no names. It is plainly unfounded. Anyone can claim these baseless, slanderous remarks in order to defame and destroy or damage a competitor's reputation. That is illegal and at least immoral.

What you have said here just goes further to discredit you and your statement in its entirety. Again; we are truly here to serve all our patients and we feel that you are most likely either not a patient of our practice or that this information was constructed by our competitors for secondary gain.

Never the less, again for the benefit of the public and our future patients let's continue to educate you. After years of successfully practicing in the field of cosmetic surgery, we also realize that cosmetic surgery is a subjective specialty and even after the patient has received an excellent improvement; he or she may still like to have more improvement. After all; there is no end to cosmetic surgery, it is an elective surgery, and as long as the patient wants, and almost always, more can be considered. That is why, especially in the case of liposuction where people may wish to have more liposuction even after they have obtained a great result, merely because they contoured to gain weight after liposuction; we may have to charge a minimal fee to cover the cost of anesthesia and operating room to prevent the abuse of our great policies by certain individuals.

Dr. Sheibani loves to perform revisional cosmetic surgery, just because he loves doing it and he is good at it. He tries hard to not let his ego be involved. We have provided an excellent description of this phenomenon on our website in one of the articles talking about our focus of interest in the field of cosmetic surgery namely revisional corrective cosmetic surgery; please make sure you read it. www.DrNewMe.com. We have an excellent referral rate in our practice and we feel that the reason for our success is that in our practice we truly care about our patients and their total satisfaction and experience. For that reason; we always welcome our patients back to the office to discuss their future needs with us. If in fact you are a real patient of our practice, you would know that you are always welcome to come back as well to discuss what we can do for you further. We are always here to serve and we stand behind our work. We are always committed to our patients and to their total satisfaction.

If you are in fact a patient of ours, we do not take your comments personally or lightly. We are always here to serve. Like Dr. Sheibani, there are many excellent cosmetic surgeons out there and each adheres to their own personal philosophies and techniques that they have learned and developed in years of experience. I feel that the creator has been kind to Dr. Sheibani, He has granted Dr. Sheibani some gifts and Dr. Sheibani feels it is his job and his privilege to share his gifts as a cosmetic surgeon with others.

As you know, and you can see on our site www.DrNewMe.com, Dr. Sheibani loves seeking education and he also loves educating others. Dr. Sheibani feels that there is an immense value in educating patients before, during and after surgery. As he mentions in our video series at the www.DrNewMe.com on numerous occasions, Dr. Sheibani insists on educating patients because he believes that an educated patient will have a higher chance of ultimate satisfaction and less complications. We consider your letter on this site an invitation to educate you and other future potential patients as well, regarding cosmetic surgery while helping you by offering you a chance to resolve your concerns.

Here is what Dr. Sheibani has shared with us:

As a team, in Cosmetic Surgery, the doctor and the patient would join together to contribute to the outcome equally. The surgeon does the surgery and the patient has to follow the instructions of the doctor carefully and completely, in order for the team to get the best possible results. However; what is important to realize is that, even when the patient/doctor team do their level best; that only accounts for fifty percent of the ultimate results. The other fifty percent is dependant on the nature of the patient, their healing capacity, genetic predisposition to scar formation and etc.

I have done hundreds of cosmetic surgeries in my career and I continue to be humbled realizing how as Cosmetic Surgeons, in order to finally be honored with happy patients, we are dependant on numerous factors outside of our control including the patients' healing capacity, their medical and psychiatric history; level of obesity or their amount of skin laxity, their history of pregnancy and the number of pregnancy; their life style and job demands as well as hundreds of other factors. After all, a construction expert; builds a wall and the wall has no part in the outcome. The final result is dependant on the work of the construction person; however; surgery is not like that. Even if we do a perfect surgery; and you as a patient do one hundred percent of your best to follow my instructions; that only adds up to fifty percent of the results. We are still dependant on your healing capacity and the nature for the other fifty percent (which is unpredictable and not-controllable by neither the patient nor the surgeon).

To have a happy patient, a surgeon, must not only do his best to perform a great surgery; but also the patient has to do his or her best to do everything that is necessary; and then the patient and the doctor have to hope that the nature will also cooperate. For example in case of liposuction; after we do liposuction of the body/hips and flanks; there is a good percentage of the molding of the tissues that is dependant on the liposuction garment that the patient wears.

If a patient wears a liposuction garment that has a zipper on the sides, this can result in some asymmetry of the sides and hips where one side of the hips may be pushed in more on one side than the other by the garment's zipper resulting in some asymmetry after the molding process. There is a chance that there are some floating fat cells after liposuction that get trapped and molded in a certain area and then grow as transplants.

Additionally, there is a possibility that since the maximum fat that can be removed from an individual is five liters, if you are a large person; the surgeon could not remove more than five liters from the patient's body. It is not safe in certain cases to remove too much fat from any individual in a single session. A surgeon must always consider the safety of his patients first. Cosmetic surgeons should always do their best to get the best results and have their patients happy, as their patient's satisfaction is any great surgeons' utmost reward. However; patients must also understand that due to unpredictability of the nature, the healing is unpredictable. In addition, there are many other reasons for these types of unpredictable occurrences. That is why no surgeon can ever guarantee results in cosmetic surgery.


Again, we always inform our patients and do our best to supersede their expectations but every so often, no matter what profession one is in, one does come across individuals with unrealistic expectations who are NEVER SATSIFIED no matter what an excellent level of care and service they receive.


As a team in our office, we tried to identify You, CAT; and after we located pictures of a patient from your home town of Whittier that had your type of liposuction surgery about two years ago and located what seems to be your possible pictures, my team members and I reviewed your before and after photos. You are a large person and have several factors that affect your cosmetic appearance. We truly felt that you have gotten an excellent improvement, considering the large excess amount of body fat in your abdominal flap hanging over your hair bearing pubis and the hanging flap of fat and skin in the area of your flanks and hips before surgery. Matter of fact, the improvement is remarkable, especially the improved flat abdomen and improved flanks and hips after surgery; we feel you should be very happy. The maximum fat that can be suctioned in any singles procedure is less than 5000CC's; but you need at least to have about 10,000Cc's removed (two full sessions of liposuction).

I am sure we told you that. We did very close to the maximum safe amount that we could do in one surgery for you and we did let you know that you need to have another liposuction surgery and Abdominoplasty procedure later. Again pelase make sure you watch our DVD video consultation at www.DrNewme.com to learn more about this. We mention this in both Liposuction and Tummy Tuck section. Patients with excessively large abdomens with excessively loose skin do need to lose weight and also they need to have several liposuction procedures and an Abdominoplasty procedure before they look the way they were meant to look.

A single liposuction procedure is less than half the actual list of procedures and interventions that need to take place. Is a half-built house or car ready to be judged? In patients like yourself with the extremely high amount of excess skin laxity and body fat; after a liposuction procedure, it is possible that there would be some irregularity of skin and soft tissue. Patients like you with excess skin laxity after liposuction of the abdomen will have hanging skin and must have a Tummy Tuck.

You stated that I didn't think anything of it at the time. I ended up signing about 10 pages worth of agreements and waivers.

That is why we encourage patients to sign an agreement indicating that they understand that they will need a Tummy Tuck later. That is most likely why we made sure you understand the need for an Abdominoplasty after your liposuction surgery. Every patient must also sign consents that are part of the requirements of allowing a patient to have surgery. It is a law, we have to do that. That is why we asked you to sign those agreements. Additionally; you do need to stay under the care of your treating physician for a while, so that he is able to watch you throughout your postoperative care period. We care about all our patients; that is why we insist on it with our patients.


You claim: The Anesthesiologist must have lost track of the 'knock out' medicine he gave me because I woke up in the middle of the procedure! They had to increase the anesthesia.

As explained in our website www.drnewme.com; liposuction is commonly performed under local anesthesia with mild sedation. It is possible to feel briefly awake during the procedure, but you do not feel any pain as the areas to be liposuction are already numb.


You Claim: The garment stretched out, so I had to buy another new one.

You sound surprised and upset that after your surgery, you had to purchase a new liposuction garment. After removing almost 10 pounds/ almost 5 liters of fat from a patient it is common that an individual needs to purchase new liposuction garments. The individual shrinks in size after such amount of fat suction, and an XL liposuction garment is no longer their correct fit. That we consider a good and desired thing, don't we?


We are truly sorry that you are not absolutely excited and happy about your experience with our practice like hundreds of other patients who have been.

Dr. Sheibani,
After wearing braces from two different Orthodontists for four and a half years, I still did not feel comfortable with my own personal appearance. I stil wanted to improve my appearance a little more. I identified the problemafter several years of close evauation and study and I realized the problem that I was caused by my upper lip's unusual abnormality and deformity. To resolve this deformity, I visisted as least twelve different doctors, including Oral-Maxilofacial Surgeons and a plastic surgeon at UCLA. The oral surgeons I saw told me I would need surgery on my upper lip but they did not know a procedure or a way to do it. the plastic surgeons I saw told me that the only way I could change my image was by moving my upper jaw. I even saw a few other plastic surgeons, including a Havard graduated Plastic Surgeon. He said that he could do nothing for me and matter of fact returned my consultation fee. These plastic surgeons told me to accept the way I look and just live with it. Emotionally this was devastating. After countless months of all this frustration, I heard about you Dr. Sheibani. When I originally met with you and asked you for help, I was ecstatic to find out that you siad you would probably be able to help me. I appreciated all of the time you took to learn what the problem was that was bothering me. You met with me on three different occasions and finally against your other colleagues' recommendations just for the sake of helping another person, you devised an incredible new laser and plastic reconstructive technique to correct my upper lip deformity. Dr Sheibani, I love what you have done for me. I will forever be greatful for what you have done!!!

Thank you very much for the excellent job you did with my augmentation. I was nervous at first as I knew it would be a huge change. But finally I was able to fulfill my life long dream because of the excellent prices you offered.

I find you and your staff to be most helpful and understanding, and the staff at the surgery rooms were very gentle, thoughtful, and caring which made a big difference too.

I appreciate everything that "NewMe" has done for me and wont hesitate to recommend your services to friends. ~ Many Thanks Angela

Dear Medical Director of New Me Surgical Institute, a Medical Corporation,

The experience that I had at your institute was wonderful. I am totally happy with my results from my breast augmentation. I am very happy with my choice in picking your institute. I have no complaints, just compliments to your staff. Thank you for making my decision a success. The results were better than I expected. ~ Tracey

To Medical Director of New Me Surgical Institute, a Medical Corporation,

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I just can't thank you enough for my new appearance. I look and feel years younger after my recent face lift. The staff was so caring. The medical facility was great! You deserve an A+ rating. I couldn't have done it without you. ~ Sincerely, Jane

Dr. Sheibani,

Just wanted to say Thank You for such a wonderful job that you did on my breast. I am so much more happier with myself and my body.

Thank you Dr. Sheibani and your whole team for making this a pleasant procedure. Sometimes you go to these types of places where they make you feel uncomfortable, but you treated me like part of your family. Thank you so much for everything. I even recommended a friend! ~ Love, Sabrina

Dear Medical Director of New Me,

I am a perfectionist and for years I wanted my lips augmented but no place was good enough. Finally, after my consultation at your facility I felt at home. I tell you, you have a good thing. From the receptionist to the Front/Back Office to the Staff at the surgical center, my experience was nothing short of excellent. Above all, the expertise and mannerism of your surgeon, Dr. Sheibani, has been a pleasure. Thank you a whole lot for the new me. ~ I love you Sharon

Dr. Dr. Sheibani,

It has been seven months since my face lift and I writing to express my heartfelt gratitude; your operation has restored my confidence in my appearance, and with hardly any real pain at all.

I want you to know that people have had a really spectacular response to your work. I stayed inside for 2 weeks after the operation, but on the 15 th day I went back out into the world having told only one person about the procedure. Absolutely everyone told me how good I looked in a beard! You should have grown a beard years ago they said, It suits your face so well they told me. They saw a huge change, but thought it was my beard! Of course, it was the contour that you had created that they perceived through the beard that they were really responding to, without knowing it. Later, when I shaved the beard, people who knew me commented on how much good it had done my face to give it a rest from shaving! And strangers at the dog park, in the supermarket, at the gym asked me over and over if I was a movie star'. One day, a guy in the sauna swore he knew me from television but couldn't remember which show I was on. And then everyone else in the sauna started to name shows and asked me if I was an actor! Now, at the seven month mark, swelling has subsided, tissues have healed, the work has had time to relax. I now no longer get the movie star remarks; but people still feel compelled to comment all the time on how well I am looking, how healthy. Of course, what they are really admiring is not my beard, my face or my healthy look, but your artistic eye, and surgical skill.

It is a very, very nice feeling indeed to have confidence restored at age 55, and the gratitude I have for you cannot be deeper or more genuine. I will always with you well, Dr. Sheibani.

Dear Dr Sheibani,

I just wanted to write a short note to thank you for being my surgeon and to let you know that I feel you are an asset to the medical community of Cosmetic Surgery.

As a woman it is easy to lose sight of what are considered healthy changes when wanting to delve into cosmetic makeovers. We are constantly bombarded with pictures of perfection and many of us are striving to get as close to that as possible without necessarily taking the time and common sense to look at things from a medical perspective. I believe that many women, including myself included forget that although it is cosmetic, it is still surgery and that makes it serious business.

As a registered nurse, I know how important it is to be informative and honest with patients. My hat is off to you for not sacrificing patient safety, ethics, and integrity to give us what we think we want without looking at all of the ramifications of the glamorous but serious surgery.

Thank you for taking the time to explain to me the small intricate dynamics of liposuction and all of the things to consider when having that procedures performed and re-performed. I know that you gave me the best professional information and I am grateful to you for doing so. Overall, I am very pleased with the results of my procedures. I believe that I have made an excellent selection having you as my surgeon. Bravo Dr. Sheibani. Keep up the fine work.

Sincerely,
Denise

I feel like a teenager again. It's only been a little over two weeks and I almost have the figure I had in my early 20's late teens. I can't wait until all the swelling goes down. I am so happy with your work. I can't thank you enough.

When people say looks don't matter, they're lying. I'm even getting treated better at work.

Thank you so very much for making me feel good about myself again.

Dear Dr. Sheibani,

Thank you for your time and attention on Wednesday, March 19 th. I have really enjoyed the new me and the increased fun I a, experiencing when I go dancing . I believe true beauty comes from within, but as a doctor in holistic health I know that the optimal feeling of well-being that we all want in life includes an outer beauty which reflects our inner hopes and dreams.

As a single woman in Los Angeles approaching 60 years of age I had found myself becoming somewhat invisible to the opposite sex. That has all changed thanks to your help and ability. I especially appreciate the naturalness of the look you have given me. I didn't want to look like I was wearing a mask, and lets face it, I have fair thin skin which tends to sag easily. You have given me a lift that looks believable.

Because I believe in the gift you give women, I believe my holistic skills would compliment your work with special needs women who are motivated to look good but need help with diet, exercise and/or smoking in order to be good candidates for your surgical skills. On Wednesday, I spoke to you about self-hypnosis, and upon reflection. I would like to propose a unique personalized package you could offer special needs clients.

I propose a package plan which would include a holistic diet and/or smoking evaluation and consultation, self-hypnosis training, prescription aids as indicated (for example: Wellbutrin or a mild diet pill), exercise recommendations, and help with hairstyle and make-up which gives a post surgery finishing touch. I would provide these services, giving you a written evaluation and recommendation which you could approve. I would also provide telephone follow up to keep the client on track, reporting to you if there were any problems. We need to determine a fair price for this package, both for you and me, which would be included as part of the surgical price estimate.

I am uniquely qualified to help provide these services not only because of my doctorate and extensive training in Holistic Health and Healing (which includes diet and lifestyle), but also because I am certified personal trainer and a licensed award winning Cosmetologist (Sak's Fifth Avenue of Beverly Hills: 1 st place, Total Look 1992).

In experiencing you as my doctor I was struck by your attention to detail and warmth of feeling. Helping people to look, feel, and act their best is a wonderful mission in life. I hope I can join you in creating a program that helps special-needs clients move past outdated and hurtful habits and the feeling they are missing the joy of being all they can be.

Thank you for your time and attention,

Dr. Louise Camille

Dear Dr. Sheibani and your staff,

I'm taking this time to let you know how much I really appreciate you work I didn't really know or understand how much work it takes for the type of surgery (Breast Augmentation) you did on Renee. All I can say is thanks and that I'm very pleased with your work, and what you did for us (you know what you did) we can't even thank you enough.

I'll tell you I was very skeptical about most of the surgeons that do cosmetic surgery, with all the rumors you hear and things I was very afraid. But after we talked to you and heard your story, we realized how you work I was very calmed. Very professional and very caring. I know that's why you love your work and you're very good at it. We are very, very pleased.

As for the men out there that are skeptical don't be this man does great work, I'm a witness and I have seen cosmetic surgery and you should be at ease with Dr. Sheibani he's great, he has turned me into a boob man which really wasn't my favorite part of the woman's body but I tell you now, it has made my life a lot more exciting, don't worry you are in good hands with him, if you do as you're told, everything will come out great.

Thanks Dr. we really appreciate you as a person and as a Dr. God bless you and your practice.

I am in my early 30s and I found that the weight was not coming off like it use to, so I wanted to get liposuction. I went to one doctor to get more information. Then I saw an ad for the New Me Surgical Institute, a Medical Corporation and decided to check it out. When I came in, Dr. Sheibani was so nice, I thought something was wrong. He answered all my questions, gave me his background, then when he pulled out his marker and begin to sculpture my body. I had consulted with another doctor previously, and Dr. Sheibani was far more detail, the thing that impressed me was that he wanted me to look good.

I am one of those people who grew up in the south and we do not so things like this. I changed my mind twice, but one day I ran into a patient of Dr. Sheibani and she shared the total experience. I even asked the staff questions and they always had the right answers. When something is right it is right. After my surgery, I woke up and Steven was sitting there with a smile. I appreciated that.

I pray to God to continue to bless the hands of Dr. Sheibani, and his staff and their families. Los Angeles, is so full of phonies and people who try to get over, well that is not the case with New Me Surgical Institute, a Medical Corporation. They make you feel like a good home cooked Sunday meal at Mamma's house!!!
________________________________________
Dear Dr. Sheibani,

First of all I want to take an opportunity and truly thank you for the great work you have done on my breast augmentation. I can't tell you how much I like and enjoy me new look, and to be honest with you, thank your wonderful work, sometimes I even get confused if I had ever done surgery., it feels like I've always had beautiful looking breast. I'm very glad that after my on going research for plastic surgery doctor, I had finally found you, and the only reason I did that because I saw pictures of your work that were not even close to what I had seen in other doctors offices. At first I was really nervous about all surgery things, but after coming to your office for consultation, I was really sure and secure of my decision. And now that I know you I will definitely have my Abdominoplasty surgery done by you, no doubt about that. I also wanted to tell you that besides being a great doctor, you are also a wonderful and caring person. Also special thanks to your wonderful staff; Janice, Steve, Diana, they are all amazing people. In conclusion, I wish you all Happy New Year, joyful life, success in everything you do and I'm really looking forward to seeing you again.

Thank you very much again your patient,

Irina Arutinova

There is a wonderful sense of calm and confidence that radiates from every person. My surgery was successful, no complications, no infections and I was not sick immediately after the surgery. Dr. Lebowitz was phenomenal. I look so beautiful and for the first time in my life I have a flat stomach. I look like a sculpture of Venus, but with arms. My Liposuction was a dream come true and I feel beautiful, sexy, and more confident. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, bottom, back and stomach. You are truly an artist.

Five-Star Guarantee

AUTHOR: New Me - (U.S.A.)

Dear CAT:


As the thousands of our patients can attest to, we are committed to the highest standard of care and service in cosmetic surgery. Below we will have posted some of our patients' testimonials from multitude of satisfied patients who continue to refer their friends and family to us. Our success is owed to our wonderful patients. We love them and they love us.

Unlike most other cosmetic surgery practices we have two guarantees. Although no one; including the patient can guarantee as to how the nature of a patient's body will heal; we still do our best to keep our patients satisfied. Our TOUCH-UP guarantee as well as our service guarantee is mentioned on our website. This TOUCH-UP Guarantee where you would need to only pay for operating room and anesthesia in case of a need for more surgery related to the first procedure is mentioned in the documents that you had signed before your surgery and is word by word from our website www.DrNewMe.com.


Unlike any other Cosmetic Surgery Practice we have 2 GUARANTEES!

New Me Five-Star Standard of Quality Guarantee

New Me Five-Star Standard of Customer Service Guarantee



#1 - The New Me Five-Star Standard of Quality Guarantee
(TOUCH UP SURGERY - POST OPERATIVE YEAR)

At the New Me Surgical Institute is committed to providing the highest standard of quality care in Cosmetic Surgery. We go out of our way to provide the best results possible because we strongly believe that "the better our patients look the better we look". The surgeons at the New Me Surgical Institute are some of the best surgeons in the profession of cosmetic surgery. Even for the best and most skilled surgeons in the world, only approximately 50% of the outcome and result is contributed to the surgeon's work. The other 50% depends primarily on the complex nature of each individual patient's body and the unpredictable and different healing capacity of each individual. Hence the most ethical, honest, most proficient and experienced cosmetic Surgeons in the world under no circumstances can guarantee perfect or even good results.

Sometimes a procedure has to be repeated. Approximately less than 2% of the patients undergoing cosmetic surgery may need a touch-up procedure to improve the results. In the event a patient should need a touch up surgery within a one year period following the surgery there will be no surgical professional fees (surgeons' fees) charged to the patient; except for a minimum operating room fee of $950.00 for use of the O.R., Surgical tray and anesthesia.

If you have any concerns about your results, you can always contact our Medical Director, Dr. Shane Sheibani, who will gladly address your concerns

As you know; you had the maximum safe limit of one session of liposuction during your surgery with us in 2004, and by law WE HAD TO STOP. You are a relatively large person and it is obvious that you most likely need more liposuction than one session. So, the fact that you were asked to pay for the operating room and anesthesia only (about $950) and no surgical fee for the surgeon is not a surprise. However; we are always here to serve our patients the best way possible. We LOVE our patients, so we continue to encourage our patients to always communicate with us. If we have to somehow modify a policy to accommodate or help our patients out; we always consider it. The better our patients look and the happier they are; the better we look and the happier we are. That is our Fundamental Policy. The reason for our existence is to be of service to our patients. That's all.

EVERY INDIVIDUAL PATIENBT IS EQUALLY IMPORTANT TO US. Every one truly matters. Again; we are sorry that you feel that your experience may have not been as glorious as thousands of our other patients' experiences have been.

Dear Cat

AUTHOR: New Me - (U.S.A.)

Dear Cat:

Let me start by saying that we are an advocate of our patients and we love caring for them. That is exactly the secret to our success as a Cosmetic Surgery practice and to Doctor Sheibani's success as a Cosmetic Surgeon. First off; we don't know who you are and if in fact you are a patient of our practice at all. You fail to give your name here and we seriously suspect that this note was generated or instigated by a competitor who has stooped low enough to do this. It is not a professional conduct for one professional to speak negatively of another colleague to try to enhance themselves, so we do not believe this type of behavior could have occurred in our profession. A professional does not need to state negative about others in order to compete but simply he or she can share his or her own positive attributes.

If you have been in fact a patient of our practice, we invite you to share your actual name and your own before and after pictures on this site. We will then be able to demonstrate the amazing level of improvement you have received after the surgeries obtained at our facility. Judging from what our thousands of patients have shared with us over the years, and the award we have received for our quality of cosmetic surgery performed by Dr. Sheibani, we are absolutely sure that you have gotten a great deal of improvement in your appearance after the surgery you received with us. We have received an award, testimonials and before and after pictures to help demonstrate our quality of work. Check out our website for yourself www.DrNewMe.com.

We care about every one of our patients and we want each and every one of them to be very happy. What I am about to share with you here is meant to help educate you and the public. Your complaint above is based on false and insufficient and/or misleading information; some of which most likely has been generated by our competitors who due to professional rivalry, jealousy or competition have the intention of damaging the excellent reputation that our practice has developed in the Cosmetic Surgery industry over the years. Any unprofessional, irresponsible, unethical and selfish individual can slander others carelessly, especially if it benefits them. They can simply claim others said those things. If in fact you have heard any negative remarks from other doctors regarding Dr. Sheibani or New Me Institute, you must mention their names; otherwise, lack of a name is a clear sign that your statements are baseless allegations. Let me take the time to educate you and the other potential patients who read this so that we accomplish at least two things: 1) We help educate you and 2) We prove to the public that in fact www.NewMeInstitute.com and www.DrNewMe.com is one of the highest quality leading cosmetic surgery practices in Southern California that they can trust to have their cosmetic surgery by. On behalf of our organization and Dr. Sheibani, our excellent medical director I will gladly respond to your allegations that:

1) You did not have enough liposuction for the money you paid.
2) Dr. Sheibani was a dermatologist in the past
3) You did not receive an excellent service


We at the www.NewMeInstitute.com are always available to serve our patients and we would like you to be happy as thousands of our other patients have been over the years. Dr. Sheibani, our Medical Director is a recognized Cosmetic Surgeon who does most of the surgeries in our practice, with the experience of performing thousands of advanced, revisional, corrective, reconstructive cosmetic surgeries of face, nose, breasts and body. He is constantly and never ending less stressing the importance of service to all our patients; he truly and whole heartedly care about people. He constantly tells every one of the staff in the practice, in our weekly meetings and daily, to be sensitive to the other patients and their needs, he stresses the importance of maintenance of our five-Star standard of care. He is absolutely and wholeheartedly committed to the highest standard of care in Cosmetic Surgery and to customer service. That is why he was selected to receive an award of excellence in cosmetic surgery as demonstrated on our website www.drnewme.com and has had hundreds of testimonials from our satisfied patients, some of which are demonstrated on our website www.drnewme.com. Although; almost all of our patients are extremely happy and appreciative of the improvement they have gotten after having surgery with us; we also understand that one can't make everyone happy all of the time; and in some cases; what the patients may expect are not necessarily what is realistically possible. Dr. Sheibani is a Diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery (www.AmericanBoardCosmeticSurgery.org) which is the only board that recognizes true cosmetic surgeons who have taken and passed an oral and written exam in Cosmetic Surgery as well as a Fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (www.cosmeticsurgery.org). Please read some of the articles on our website www.drNewme.com to learn as to how important those designations are and how difficult they are to obtain. Never the less, Dr. Sheibani loves people; his colleagues and he is an advocate of caring for all individuals and helping and supporting others. Even though he does corrective cosmetic surgery, he is very careful not to ever state anything negative about another colleague or person. Dr. Sheibani is in fact one of the excellent cosmetic surgeons in town here in Beverly Hills/Los Angeles. He is highly trained and qualified to perform all gametes of general cosmetic surgery and perhaps more so than most doctors you claim to have said the slanderous false statements that you placed on this complaint. The reason Dr. Sheibani loves Revisional Cosmetic surgery is that he loves to be challenged and utilize his God given gifts to the maximum benefit of others.

Although there are numerous Dermatologists that are excellent Cosmetic Surgeons, and that is nothing to apologize for, Dr. Sheibani matter of fact started his training in surgery at one of the Affiliated Programs of Prestigious Yale University School of Medicine) as most doctors practicing Cosmetic or Plastic Surgery do. You stated in your complaint that: I have seen 3 different board-certified cosmetic surgeons who all told me that Dr. Sheibani first began his practice as a dermatologist. I also found out that he isn't exactly the most respected 'cosmetic surgeon' in the medical community. Luckily, I found a new physician who is sympathetic to my situation (and who has actually seen SEVERAL of Dr. Sheibani's 'mistake' patients over the past 5 years) and he is willing to try to correct Dr. Sheibani's mistakes.! Again, your statement here is not supported by any facts or proof and no names. It is plainly unfounded. Anyone can claim these baseless, slanderous remarks in order to defame and destroy or damage a competitor's reputation. That is illegal and at least immoral. What you have said here just goes further to discredit you and your statement in its entirety. Again; we are truly here to serve all our patients and we feel that you are most likely either not a patient of our practice or that this information was constructed by our competitors for secondary gain.

Never the less, again for the benefit of the public and our future patients let's continue to educate you. After years of successfully practicing in the field of cosmetic surgery, we also realize that cosmetic surgery is a subjective specialty and even after the patient has received an excellent improvement; he or she may still like to have more improvement. After all; there is no end to cosmetic surgery, it is an elective surgery, and as long as the patient wants, and almost always, more can be considered. That is why, especially in the case of liposuction where people may wish to have more liposuction even after they have obtained a great result, merely because they contoured to gain weight after liposuction; we may have to charge a minimal fee to cover the cost of anesthesia and operating room to prevent the abuse of our great policies by certain individuals.

Dr. Sheibani loves to perform revisional cosmetic surgery, just because he loves doing it and he is good at it. He tries hard to not let his ego be involved. We have provided an excellent description of this phenomenon on our website in one of the articles talking about our focus of interest in the field of cosmetic surgery namely revisional corrective cosmetic surgery; please make sure you read it. www.DrNewMe.com. We have an excellent referral rate in our practice and we feel that the reason for our success is that in our practice we truly care about our patients and their total satisfaction and experience. For that reason; we always welcome our patients back to the office to discuss their future needs with us. If in fact you are a real patient of our practice, you would know that you are always welcome to come back as well to discuss what we can do for you further. We are always here to serve and we stand behind our work. We are always committed to our patients and to their total satisfaction.

If you are in fact a patient of ours, we do not take your comments personally or lightly. We are always here to serve. Like Dr. Sheibani, there are many excellent cosmetic surgeons out there and each adheres to their own personal philosophies and techniques that they have learned and developed in years of experience. I feel that the creator has been kind to Dr. Sheibani, He has granted Dr. Sheibani some gifts and Dr. Sheibani feels it is his job and his privilege to share his gifts as a cosmetic surgeon with others. As you know, and you can see on our site www.DrNewMe.com, Dr. Sheibani loves seeking education and he also loves educating others. Dr. Sheibani feels that there is an immense value in educating patients before, during and after surgery. As he mentions in our video series at the www.DrNewMe.com on numerous occasions, Dr. Sheibani insists on educating patients because he believes that an educated patient will have a higher chance of ultimate satisfaction and less complications. We consider your letter on this site an invitation to educate you and other future potential patients as well, regarding cosmetic surgery while helping you by offering you a chance to resolve your concerns.

Here is what Dr. Sheibani has shared with us:

As a team, in Cosmetic Surgery, the doctor and the patient would join together to contribute to the outcome equally. The surgeon does the surgery and the patient has to follow the instructions of the doctor carefully and completely, in order for the team to get the best possible results. However; what is important to realize is that, even when the patient/doctor team do their level best; that only accounts for fifty percent of the ultimate results. The other fifty percent is dependant on the nature of the patient, their healing capacity, genetic predisposition to scar formation and etc.

I have done hundreds of cosmetic surgeries in my career and I continue to be humbled realizing how as Cosmetic Surgeons, in order to finally be honored with happy patients, we are dependant on numerous factors outside of our control including the patients' healing capacity, their medical and psychiatric history; level of obesity or their amount of skin laxity, their history of pregnancy and the number of pregnancy; their life style and job demands as well as hundreds of other factors. After all, a construction expert; builds a wall and the wall has no part in the outcome. The final result is dependant on the work of the construction person; however; surgery is not like that. Even if we do a perfect surgery; and you as a patient do one hundred percent of your best to follow my instructions; that only adds up to fifty percent of the results. We are still dependant on your healing capacity and the nature for the other fifty percent (which is unpredictable and not-controllable by neither the patient nor the surgeon).

To have a happy patient, a surgeon, must not only do his best to perform a great surgery; but also the patient has to do his or her best to do everything that is necessary; and then the patient and the doctor have to hope that the nature will also cooperate. For example in case of liposuction; after we do liposuction of the body/hips and flanks; there is a good percentage of the molding of the tissues that is dependant on the liposuction garment that the patient wears. If a patient wears a liposuction garment that has a zipper on the sides, this can result in some asymmetry of the sides and hips where one side of the hips may be pushed in more on one side than the other by the garment's zipper resulting in some asymmetry after the molding process. There is a chance that there are some floating fat cells after liposuction that get trapped and molded in a certain area and then grow as transplants. Additionally, there is a possibility that since the maximum fat that can be removed from an individual is five liters, if you are a large person; the surgeon could not remove more than five liters from the patient's body. It is not safe in certain cases to remove too much fat from any individual in a single session. A surgeon must always consider the safety of his patients first. Cosmetic surgeons should always do their best to get the best results and have their patients happy, as their patient's satisfaction is any great surgeons' utmost reward. However; patients must also understand that due to unpredictability of the nature, the healing is unpredictable. In addition, there are many other reasons for these types of unpredictable occurrences. That is why no surgeon can ever guarantee results in cosmetic surgery.


Again, we always inform our patients and do our best to supersede their expectations but every so often, no matter what profession one is in, one does come across individuals with unrealistic expectations who are NEVER SATSIFIED no matter what an excellent level of care and service they receive.


As a team in our office, we tried to identify You, CAT; and after we located pictures of a patient from your home town of Whittier that had your type of liposuction surgery about two years ago and located what seems to be your possible pictures, my team members and I reviewed your before and after photos. You are a large person and have several factors that affect your cosmetic appearance. We truly felt that you have gotten an excellent improvement, considering the large excess amount of body fat in your abdominal flap hanging over your hair bearing pubis and the hanging flap of fat and skin in the area of your flanks and hips before surgery. Matter of fact, the improvement is remarkable, especially the improved flat abdomen and improved flanks and hips after surgery; we feel you should be very happy. The maximum fat that can be suctioned in any singles procedure is less than 5000CC's; but you need at least to have about 10,000Cc's removed (two full sessions of liposuction). I am sure we told you that. We did very close to the maximum safe amount that we could do in one surgery for you and we did let you know that you need to have another liposuction surgery and Abdominoplasty procedure later. Again pelase make sure you watch our DVD video consultation at www.DrNewme.com to learn more about this. We mention this in both Liposuction and Tummy Tuck section. Patients with excessively large abdomens with excessively loose skin do need to lose weight and also they need to have several liposuction procedures and an Abdominoplasty procedure before they look the way they were meant to look. A single liposuction procedure is less than half the actual list of procedures and interventions that need to take place. Is a half-built house or car ready to be judged? In patients like yourself with the extremely high amount of excess skin laxity and body fat; after a liposuction procedure, it is possible that there would be some irregularity of skin and soft tissue. Patients like you with excess skin laxity after liposuction of the abdomen will have hanging skin and must have a Tummy Tuck.

You stated that I didn't think anything of it at the time. I ended up signing about 10 pages worth of agreements and waivers.

That is why we encourage patients to sign an agreement indicating that they understand that they will need a Tummy Tuck later. That is most likely why we made sure you understand the need for an Abdominoplasty after your liposuction surgery. Every patient must also sign consents that are part of the requirements of allowing a patient to have surgery. It is a law, we have to do that. That is why we asked you to sign those agreements. Additionally; you do need to stay under the care of your treating physician for a while, so that he is able to watch you throughout your postoperative care period. We care about all our patients; that is why we insist on it with our patients.


You claim: The Anesthesiologist must have lost track of the 'knock out' medicine he gave me because I woke up in the middle of the procedure! They had to increase the anesthesia.

As explained in our website www.drnewme.com; liposuction is commonly performed under local anesthesia with mild sedation. It is possible to feel briefly awake during the procedure, but you do not feel any pain as the areas to be liposuction are already numb.


You Claim: The garment stretched out, so I had to buy another new one.

You sound surprised and upset that after your surgery, you had to purchase a new liposuction garment. After removing almost 10 pounds/ almost 5 liters of fat from a patient it is common that an individual needs to purchase new liposuction garments. The individual shrinks in size after such amount of fat suction, and an XL liposuction garment is no longer their correct fit. That we consider a good and desired thing, don't we?


We are truly sorry that you are not absolutely excited and happy about your experience with our practice like hundreds of other patients who have been.
