Finally a chance to warn potential patients about this doctor without losing my job. Please read this, if you are thinking about going to Dr. Shane Sheibani for any kind of surgical procedure. First things first my experience with Dr. Sheibani the "cosmetic" surgeon. Ladies and gentleman I have been in the beauty industry for many years and let me tell you the most important bit of information.....DO YOUR HOMEWORK! Dr. Sheibani is a "cosmetic" surgeon..what does that mean? It means that he is not only NOT a board certified surgeon he is not even a plastic surgeon. There is a big difference between the two, please do your research! This does not always matter too much for more simple procedures like a breast augmentation, but for anything more complicated like a breast lift or tummy tuck this is the difference between a good surgery and a botched surgery. At least this is true for Dr. Sheibani.
I will never forget how appaled I was to have a very nice patient come in after her surgery was completed to tell me that there did not seem to be any difference at all! This patient spent 8k for a breast lift and was not happy about the results. As usual Dr. Sheibani told her to wait it out for six months. After six months she came back in and to my horror her before and after pictures showed absolutely NO difference at all!! This was hard for me as I grew very fond of the patient. I found the doctors response to be even more apalling he pretended like there was a big difference and that he would do a "touch up", at the patients expense, in a couple years if she still felt like she needed it. This happened several times with different patients, it always surprised me how nice Dr. sheibani could be when a new patient came in and how easy it was for him to dismiss a patients concerns after they had a surgery. He is unethical to say the very least.
There were a couple of times when he would change his mind about what procedures he wanted to perform on a patient THE DAY OF THE SURGERY, like if he did not quite feel like doing a breast lift he would convince a patient that a breast lift was not needed and a breast augmentation would be fine. Before he would perform the procedure he would have the patients sign one of his infamous last minute contracts to make sure the patient was okay with this, if the patient refused he would not perform the procedure. Please anyone interested in having any type of surgical procedure do not allow cost to be the only reason you go to one surgeon over another, you could end up spending more for results you aren't even happy with. Take my advice DO NOT HAVE ANY WORK DONE BY DR. SHEIBANI EVER!
