Dr. Gabriel is an excellent, caring, knowledgeable and uses cutting edge techniques!! I have Dr. Gabriel doing my reconstruction process and it's been nothing but perfection with minimal pain. My recovery after my double mastectomy went so smooth due to the technique Dr. Gabriel uses by putting the expanders, covered in alloderm, over the pec muscle and filling the expanders with air. There is botox injected into the pec muscle to prevent spasms for up to 3 months. My recovery was very very comfortable. I would recommend him to friends and family, he is the BEST!!!!
Double Mastectomy with Reconstruction - Vancouver, WA - Excellence!!! - - Dr. Gabriel is my Plastic Surgeon who assisted with my Oncology Surgeon Dr. Storm-Dickerson during my double mastectomy. Dr. Gabriel began working on me as soon as Dr. Storm-Dickerson was done with her part of my surgery which is so nice not to have to wait so my total surgery time was 4 1/2 hours, start to finish. Dr. Gabriel used his newest technique on me. First off he injected Botox into my pec muscle which keeps the painful spasms from occurring for up to 3 months. This was a blessing! Dr. Gabriel also put my tissue expanders , which were completely covered with Alloderm, "over" the pec muscle using my existing breast skin which was a blessing that the pec muscle did not have to "stretch" or "spasm" and the tissue expanders were filled with air rather than saline so that the weight wouldn't have an affect on the healing process. EVERYTHING that was done for my surgery by Dr. Gabriel was "perfection" with minimal pain. My breasts were given a "lift" and my incision lines were "perfection". Within days I was off pain medication and was able to heal very comfortably. Visits to Dr. Gabriel's office were always so friendly, caring and the staff are wonderful!!! I've had my exchange surgery on Sept. 13th and that was a breeze. Everything that was done during my mastectomy surgery made me ready for implants and there was no pain and I was able to get my own food and move about as if nothing had been done to me (I still made sure to abide by the rules to heal properly). My next surgery is now scheduled for Oct. 25th which will be a fat transfer to use liposuction technique Tumescent "super wet". Fat will be taken from my stomach area, harvested and injected around my implants and any places that have divots. I know this surgery will also be nothing but "perfection" with pain control always top priority. Again, Dr. Gabriel and his assistant, Jami are the BEST!!!!
Breast Cancer Survivor - Dr Gabriel explained every process of the procedure in layman's terms. He verified I understood the procedures. He listened to my concerns and answered my questions intelligently and accurately. He is one of the most caring doctors I have ever met. He is gifted and talented, and it was my honor and privilege to say to my friends, "Made in the USA by Dr. Gabriel" - - Hearing the diagnosis, "you have breast cancer" is frightening. Suddenly my very existence started smothering me. I couldn't breathe, I couldn't react, I couldn't think, I couldn't respond. I was numb.After experiencing a bi-later mastectomy, the long road to survivor was chemo and radiation. 1 year later I began the process of breast reconstruction. It was then, I met Dr. Gabriel. He treated me as though I was his only patient. His caring and compassion gave me hope my life would have balance once again. Dr Gabriel saved my life.
Best Decision I've Ever Made! - Vancouver, WA - The absolute best and most genuine doctor I have ever met in my entire life. he made me feel like I was family from the first day I met him . Words cannot express how grateful I am to him ! - - After losing about 150 pounds and having a large amount of leftover skin which caused me to be so insecure with my body and just absolutely not enjoy the fact that I had lost so much weight I went to Dr. Champ to see about having a panniculectomy. From the first day and through all the back-and-forth with the insurance company him and his team were so amazing they treated me like family. I've never felt more respected in a doctors office in my life. Every single person on his team made me feel so welcome, answered every single question you could ever imagine for me and just made me feel at home. The surgery itself was a lot easier than I thought including the recovery. I had to have one tube for four weeks but other than that was the easiest recovery you could hope for! Do you results are absolutely amazing I feel so good about myself he gave me The body that I truly worked for. He fought with my insurance company until they paid it in full! ALL OF IT!!!!! Thank you so much Doctor champ you'll never understand how amazing you are to me ??
