Breast Cancer Survivor, Reconstruction ?? Dr G - Dr Gabriel, aka "The Boob Whisperer", is amazing on every level. I had a bilateral mastectomy and reconstruction, and he gave me faith and confidence from the first moment I met him. I consulted with 3 other surgeons before choosing Dr Gabriel, although he was furthest from my home, it was a hands down choice. He gave me options the other surgeons didn't. He is extremely caring and passionate... More

Thank You is Not Enough... - I am forever grateful to Dr. Gabriel and his team. My decision to have skin removal surgery after losing almost 100 pounds was not an easy one. I felt ugly and embarrassed, but from the very first visit his entire staff made me feel beautiful and worthy of such a surgery. Dr. Gabriel and every person that I have come into contact with along the way have been absolutely amazing. Yes, Dr. Gabriel is a wonderful surgeon, but more than that he is a caring and gracious man with a genuine commitment to women and women's health. I am 3 weeks post-op and when I reflect on my experience with Dr. Gabriel and his entire staff am a brought to tears. I can never thank them ALL enough. More

Excellent physician who provides outstanding results - I have postponed a review for 1 1/2 years after surgery to offer my thoughts on long term results. Dr. Champaneria is not only a kind and caring doctor, he is extremely competent in plastic surgery. His methods adhere to strict guidelines to prevent infection and provide excellent results. Not only did I have surgery without complication, my results were exactly what he said they would be. He accomplished realignment and symmetry with ease. He shows concern and empathy while displaying both a confidence and humility that are excellent qualities in a physician. I can say that after this much time has passed, I would not hesitate to return to Dr. Champaneria with any and all surgical questions or procedures. He is not only well-educated and experienced in plastic surgery, he is highly successful and regarded. I offer my full recommendation. More

Extremly satisfied - Dr. Champaneria is absolutely amazing. I have always hated how thin my lips were. I finally decided to go talk to him about lip fillers and I am so glad I did. He was great through the whole process. I now love my lips. They look natural but I can definitely tell a difference. I will definitely be visiting him again soon. Thank you thank you thank you.

My journey with breast cancer - I was diagnosed with breast cancer in November 2015. Decision was made to do bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction. I chose to do over the muscle with gummy bear implants. I also have under the breast incisions, which allows them not to be seen. Recovery with this procedure over this past year has gone really well. They look and feel so natural, and no scars showing. Being a nurse has been a blessing in this journey. Being able to weigh my options, and discuss with my medical team and fellow co-workers made this choice the best one. I finished my look with 3D nipple tattoos. I love my results! With Dr. Gabriel's expertise and care, this has made a negative experience into a positive one. Can't thank you enough for making me look his amazing! More

Breast Reduction - GREAT experience! - As always, when considering surgery, it is important to do your research and find a provider with whom you are comfortable with. My experience with Dr. Champaneria has been exemplary. I found that he listened to me when I told him what led to my decision and my concerns, and answered them in a knowledgeable and compassionate manner.I waited 10 months to give this review, so that I could give a better review of the outcome. I am so exceedingly happy with the results! I can honestly say that they look beautiful, my headaches / neckaches / shoulderaches / backaches have disappeared and my confidence has soared! The only question that I have is why I didn't do this sooner! I was a H cup originally, and am now at a full B cup! The best part, is that I can now run again without pain! I took advantage of the laser scar treatment that was offered, and while I was initially skeptical, it really makes a difference, and I cannot believe how faint they are already. I haven't hesitated to recommend Dr. Champaneria to others considering this surgery, and if I decide on any other future surgeries in this field, I will be going back to his office. More

Dt. Gabriel is one of a kind. He is caring and very professional. When I first meet him I was a bit unease but after meeting with him I was very comfortable with myself and was very informed. His office staff are very friendly and well prepared. Dr. Gabriel explains exactly what he was going to do as well as demonstrated.

A 76 Year Old's Experience with Peace Health Plastic Surgery Group - Vancouver, WA - I went online to find a plastic surgeon and happily found Peace Health Plastic Surgery Grp. My consultation appointment was with Dr. Champaneria. I knew from this meeting he was who I wanted to perform my procedure. In June, 2016 had a Face & Neck Lift. It went so well and looks great. I was to have another procedure to follow later once I was healed, a CO2 Laser treatment to my mouth and cheek areas. In the mean time he performed eyelid surgery on Oct. 17, 2016. This surgery was covered by my insurance as a medical necessity. Again, it turned out wonderful. Recently I underwent the CO2 Laser treatment, Feb. 7, 2017 and at this time am still healing from it. What I love about Dr. Champaneria is, not only he is a great guy, but he is conservative and certainly has great expertise when it comes to performing plastic surgery. Nothing drastic to alter the natural look. For me that is the art of plastic surgery. I look and feel good and would recommend this Doctor to anyone seeking the need or desire to enhance one’s self image. The staff in the office are all so nice and helpful making you feel very relaxed and welcomed. I stayed one night at Peace Health Medical Center, in Vancouver, WA, following the face-neck lift. The hospital care was excellent. More

Breast Cancer Reconstruction - Vancouver, WA - I would and have trusted Dr, Gabriel with my life. He is one of the most compassionate and gifted people I have ever known. He is an expert in his field and feels strongly about healing all women. With women who have had a breast cancer diagnosis, Dr. Gabriel is as concerned with the psychological wounds from a cancer diagnosis, as he is with the medical procedure necessary to survive breast cancer.

Seri mesh 480cc gummy bear implants. - To say Dr. Allen Gabriel is amazing would be an understatement!!! I ended up getting 480cc gummy bear implants with Seri mesh. Dr.Gabriel had suggested Seri mesh and after doing my own research I decided to get it. Seri mesh works as an internal bra so keeps your breast perky longer! Also my breast were extremely small before and I had to create a new breast fold( seri mesh helps with this by keeping the implant from falling down your chest wall) along with breast augmentation I got a bunch of free gifts such as laser hair removal, face cleansing products and I got to choose between latisse eye lash serum or Botox! I'm 100% satisfied with my results and it was worth every penny! (The photo posted both of us got our breast done by him) More

Explant Local - Dr. Gabriel is an amazing Doctor. From the moment I met him I knew he was the surgeon for me. He is kind and caring and a top notch doctor. He made me feel so incredibly comfortable with my decision to remove my implants. Not once did he make me feel like I would be deformed or that I should replace my implants. As I drudged through the rollercaoster of emotions of removing my breast implants Dr Gabriel was with me every step of the way. He was willing to accommodate every request I made and did not make me feel any hesitations when I changed my mind about the type of removal surgery I was having (en bloc under general or simple local removal) he called me several times to answer all of my questions and at all times I felt he had my best interest at heart. After my implants were removed he still treated me with kindness and respect at my follow up appointment. I feel he is a truly caring Doctor. Also I Found his entire staff to be very professional and kind. More

Mastectomy with Breast Reconstruction - 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!!!! More

Breast Reconstructed Revision - Portland, OR - I had gone into so many surgery from removal of my Breasts to reconstruction. I thought I had the best doctor in town and I were so happy with him. He is one of the most talentest and kindnest Doctor I ever known, Dr. Louis at UW medicine in Seattle, Washington. Later, I had to moved to Vancouver WA, can't see my favorite doctor anymore. I were referred to Peace Health at Vacounver clinic, there I met doctor Champeraria. At first I was a little shy because I heard this doctor just graduate a few years ago, so I was afraid he is lack of experience. However, after I had known Dr. Champ. was one of Dr. Louis fellow student at UW, my fear went away because I knew I am in good hands. Dr. Champ was very patient and try hard to work with my busy schedule and was able to get me in in such a short notice. I never had any doctor called me on my cell to check on me to make sure I am okay with the procedure and to reschedule the next procedure. Any ways , many words can't explain how happy I am with the result and how appreciate Dr. Champ with his work on me. I am so very please to Dr. Patient care service which make me feel I am special. I guess he will treat on of his client like he treated me. I truly recommend this talented and professional doctor, Dr. Champeraria. More

07/19/2016 - Vancouver, WA - Dr. Champaneria has been wonderful. He is extremely caring and supportive. He has taken time to listen to me and answer all my questions. I have always felt he was genuinely interested in me and what I have to say, how I am feeling, and my decisions. I have always felt like he had time to hear me and never rushed my appointments. He is very respectful to me always. He has been very supportive in dealing with my anxiety. He has understood my need to feel "normal" again and how important that has been to me. I strongly recommend Dr Champaneria and know you will feel very satisfied with him as your doctor. More

Manesh is Nothing Short of Amazing - Vancouver, WA - I visited Manesh in WA while I was visiting my sister. He knew it was my first time with the procedure, and he was so comforting and informative. I could speak volumes about my results and the pleasure I have with the outcome and working with Manesh, but my my review is to attest to his character and his personable energy. He made me feel very comfortable in my own skin, talked me through it, and made the entire process as smooth as my forehead :) More

He and everyone in his office are very kind and all seem to truly care about each and every one of his patients. I have been a patient of Dr. Gabriel for almost 3 yrs now, he has seen me thru multiple surgeries for breast reconstruction after bi-lateral mastectomies, a tummy tuck, Botox and now Juvederm for my lips. From the hardest of procedures to the simplest, his caring bedside manner has never changed.

Shopping for bras, bathing suits or strapless tops/gowns were always a very emotional thing for me to do since nothing would ever fit properly. I found that I had to insert breast forms in my right bra just to be able to ??even things out??? so that no one be able to see the difference in the size of my breasts. I went to a plastic surgeon about 15 years ago but his bedside manner was less than desirable and I walked away from the appointment feeling more ashamed of my body than I had when I walked in. At that point, I had resounded myself to the fact that I would just have to live with the way my breasts looked forever. Fast forward to the present: I thought I would give it one more shot so I asked my primary physician for a referral to a doctor who I could talk to about breast augmentation. He referred me to Dr. Gabriel and I???m so happy he did! I went into my initial consultation with Dr. Gabriel thinking that I was going to have to have my smaller right breast implanted so that it would match the size of my left breast. Dr. Gabriel talked with me about all of my alternatives and he felt that reducing the size of my larger breast would be better for me and then I could decide if I wanted to have breast implants. He even worked with my insurance company to have the procedure completely paid for because I was born with this deformity. What a surprise that was to me because I thought I would have to pay for all of it out of pocket. Everyone that I have come in contact with during this time has had nothing but glowing praises for Dr. Gabriel. The nurses in the hospital said that I was lucky to have him as my doctor. He is such a kind and compassionate person that genuinely cares for his patients. I am now 6 weeks post-operative and still can???t believe how I look each time I stare into a mirror. My breasts are even and in direct proportion with my body. I am no longer self conscious of my breasts and it feels liberating!

Breast Implant Removal & New Implants - Vancouver, WA - I can't say enough good things about Dr. Gabriel. What a knowledgeable, caring professional! He has never dismissed my fears or concerns. He treats me as an intelligent woman who knows herself and her own body. When I wanted new implants, he listened to my reasons and presented several options. He will not do things he knows from years of experience won't work. For example, I initially wanted a fat transfer. He said it would not resolve my concern about upper breast fullness over time. I have built trust with him through my experiences! - - In 1986 I got McGhan Double Lumin implants (inner silicone pocket/outer saline pocket). This wasprior to when the FDA took silicone implants off the market & the Dow Corning class action law suit. Over the 27 years I had numerous health issues that I suspected were related to the implants, including migraines, joint pain, muscle pain, chronic allergies & bronchitis. I visited my initial surgeon in Southern California within weeks of the surgery after landing in the emergency room with my first migraine. I was told that the symptoms I had were part if aging (I was 31). Over the 27 years, I went to approximately 15 doctors in 3 states trying to get help. Towards the end I visited several plastic surgeons asking them to remove the old implants. I was told, "If they aren't broke, don't fix them."I had these implants in my body until April of 2013 when Dr. Gabriel removed them. During my first visit with Dr. Gabriel, he had already researched my implant type. He explained that they were recalled for failure 2 years after I had them in. He recommended immediate removal with no replacement to give my body time to recover and my health to improve. It would give me to decide if I would like my breasts without an implant. I actually enjoyed the freedom of having MY small breasts. I waited 2 years before I got another implant & I selected the gummy bear. The upper pole of each of my breasts were concave after having an implant for so long. I felt self conscience when I met my fiance. I love the newer implants that have a much more natural curve and softer feel. I am a 36 B to C, a very natural size for me. More

Gummy Bear Anatomical Implants 320cc - Vancouver, WA - Dr Gabriel has done an amazing job with my BA. My procedure was a little complex because I needed a mesh anchoring system (that's not the medical terminology ! ) to keep my implants safe and secure under my pectoral muscle. His knowledge in reconstructive breast surgery was extremely beneficial in my case and was another reason I chose him. He took great care of my body and listened carefully to my needs and expectations from the procedure. I was a 34 barely A cup. I wanted a very natural yet feminine look. I didn't want the world to notice because I regularly am in front of groups of people in fitness gear. However, I also wanted to feel sexier, and look a little more proportioned-somehow he made both happen. I'm not sure exactly what my size is, either 34 C or D moderate projection. I love my results and I'm healing very quickly. Dr Gabriel patiently answers my many questions at every visit. He's very confident - that was a selling point for me too as deciding on size, projection, etc can be very stressful. Dr Gabriel is fantastic and clearly an expert in the industry. His staff is gorgeous, kind, and informative as well! More

Natrelle 410 Anatomical Cohesive Gel Implants (320cc [L] and 370cc [R]) (5'7" & 115lbs) Vancouver, WA - In January of 2015 I began to fully research breast augmentation. Working in the medical community provided many avenues for research, while word of mouth recommendations was by far the most important to me. By September of 2015 I had decided that breast augmentation was something I was indeed serious about and I knew who I wanted to perform the operation. I called PeaceHealth Medical Group Plastic Surgery to schedule a consult with Dr. Allen Gabriel. Dr. Gabriel is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Southwest Washington. (On a side note, he is also considered “the guy” when it comes to breasts.) My consult was scheduled for November of 2015. I then met Dr. Gabriel. My initial impression was positive. His overall confident nature, while not having an ounce of (noticeable) ego, was reassuring. We initially discussed my overall goals for the procedure, along with various options. Dr. Gabriel very graciously assessed just what he had (or did not have) to work with. Measurements were taken and questions were answered. Professionalism was maintained throughout the consult. My procedure was scheduled for February 18 of 2016. I am so thankful for the end result! I am 5 week’s post-operative and I feel AMAZING! The symmetry of my breasts is nearly perfect! (I don’t know how he did it!) My incisions are tiny, which is crazy for cohesive gel’s which require a larger incision. All told I am completely grateful and truly appreciate the attention to detail from Dr. Gabriel. His perfectionism is much appreciated and I am so thankful that I don’t have to be the only one to advocate for myself as he is advocating for me! If you are considering breast augmentation in Oregon or Washington, you really need to look no further than Dr. Gabriel. He will listen to you and use his knowledge and skill to help you look and feel your best! He is truly an exceptional physician and surgeon. More

33 Years Old, Mom Who Breastfed, 375 MF - Vancouver, WA - Dr Gabriel is a magician. I'm so glad I chose him, and trusted him to make the final decision with what size implants I got. For the first time in my life, my breasts are perfectly symmetrical, from the side, from the top view, looking at my under boob cleavage. They're the same size. And my nipples are perfectly lined up. And my nipple to breast ratio is finally perfect. I spent the past two decades insecure about having big puffy nipples and small boobs. Best of all, my new boobs match my frame. It really feels like they're mine, like they're the boobs I was always supposed to have. And I'm not even done healing, so they look better every day. It has done wonders for my self esteem.I've had the easiest recovery ever, it was not painful at all even without pain pills. And that's not me having a high tolerance - I found the first weeks of breastfeeding to be the worst pain of my life, and other people deal with it fine. It was just having such a skilled doctor. On top of all that, he is super nice and puts you at ease. I was not nervous at all the day of my surgery. I knew I was in good hands! More

I have already recommended Dr. Champaneria to several friends! He is honest, helpful, professional, and takes his job seriously! I had a bit of a special circumstance, in that I have a gall bladder scar that was in the way. So Dr. said he could do one of two ways, I totally trusted him, and he told me of any complications that could arise. Well I am happy to say, NONE of the complications happened, and I am TOTALLY satisfied with the two procedures I had done!! WONDERFUL experience!! More

29 Year Old with Assemerty. Vancouver, WA - Dr. Gabriel is a fantastic surgeon with an awesome team. He is personable and highly knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him to anyone getting breast work done. He makes his patients feel comfortable and takes excellent care of them. He even personally did follow up phone calls to make sure I was doing okay the day after each of my surgeries. He is a fairly conservative surgeon and will help you find implants that are nicely proportioned to your body. If you are looking for a surgeon to give you huge fake boobs, he might not be the surgeon for you. I love the fact that all his surgeries are done at the hospital and not in a clinic. Yes it is more expensive at a hospital, but surgeries are risky and if anything happens in a clinic a patient would probably die. Find a surgeon who does his work in a hospital. So happy I chose Dr. Gabriel for my procedures. More

29 Yr Old BA 445cc Natrelle Gummy Bears - Vancouver, WA - Dr Gabriel is truly amazing. He did two surgeries on me. Both breast augmentation but the second one was a revision/implant switch. My first surgery went well, but I was one of the few whose implant was rotating (anatomical implant). I saw him about my concern and he had me on the schedule right away for a revision. He changed my implants with round ones this time, he said they were the newest and latest model they just got, the inspira. Boy I felt spoiled already! He did my revision at absolutely no cost to me. He really cared about my concern and made it right. Great guy! Has a sense of humor too! I am absolutely loving my new breast! I went way bigger but they still look natural. And the new ones feel much softer! - - Got my breast augmentation under the muscle, 445 cc natrelle style 410 gummy bears October 2015. I have breast fed two kids. My nipples actually point down and my surgeon said I have underdeveloped breast muscles. While I loved the first month, when it when it dropped it was a little too small for me. When I was fitted I asked for 575cc, but my surgeon said I would be better with 445 cc. I'm a bigger girl, 180 lbs. so this actually looks tiny on me. He said I need a lift too, but I'm still young and can wait. He also thought about moving my nipples but we both agreed that it wasn't necessary and I didn't want the scars or loose nipple sensation.

52 Breast Cancer- Reconstruction W/ Natrelle 410 MX445 Exchanged to MX550 (Gummy Bear) SO HAPPY! Vancouver, WA - Dr. Gabriel is an amazing surgeon. After each surgery he personally called my husband to let him know how everything went and would visit me before I went home. Would follow up with a phone call to me at home as well. He the time to answer any questions and usually made me feel comfortable. Just look at my photos compared to others on the internet! I don't even look like I had breast cancer. Other doctors who have seen me always say wow you look great and Dr. Gabriel should be very proud of his work. I sure am! During one of my surgeries the IV blew in my hand as the anesthesiologist said I should be feeling sleepy, all I felt was my hand on fire! Jami and the anesthesiologist quickly took out the IV and had to find another good vein. During that time Dr. Gabriel held my hand and talked about his daughter and a trip to to Disneyland to keep my mind off the pain I was in. He is so kind hearted and truly cares about his patients. His PA Jami is amazing too. She always has a smile on her face and really takes the time to listen to anything you need to talk about. They both put up with me complaining about my size at first. Afterall I am 52, why should I care about that, but I did and wanted to look great for my husband of 33 years! I never feld judged or uncomfortable talking with Jami. I highly recommend Dr. Gabriel and his staff. You could not find a more caring group of professionals in our area. - - My journey started just after my 51st birthday. I was diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma- stage 2. Within 3 weeks I was having a double mastectomy. I wasn't too scared as my friend had the same surgeons and loved them. Dr. Gabriel and Dr. Storm-Dickerson. I felt very comfortable with them as well and trusted the choices I had made to have both breast removed. First surgery went well, spent 2 nights in the hospital. The nurses at Peacehealth were awesome! I had two sets of drains for a few weeks, then one for a couple weeks more. Not long after the drains were removed Dr. Gabriel said I was ready for the nipple sharing surgery. This was a fascinating procedure. He actually cut my healthy left nipple in half to share with the right breast which had the cancer and the nipple needed to be removed. They look amazing and healed pretty fast. The worst part of that surgery was I had not had any expansion fills yet. During surgery he expanded me to 300 cc, which is all the expanders would hold. This was quite painful for over a month! I was really sad to see how small they were too but Dr. Gabriel said this is not the finished size, we would decide that later. Another month went by and the muscles relaxed a bit and filled out a little more. I could hardly wait till my exchange surgery. We had decided on the Natrelle gummy bear implants. Dr. Gabriel said they were the best available. I let him know what size I wanted to be , about 525-550 cc's (a full C cup). My exchange was scheduled for March 10, 4 months after my initial surgery. After the exchange Dr. Gabriel came to visit me first thing the next morning as I had spent the night at the hospital. He is so caring and has the best bedside manner of any doctor I have met. I had expected my breast to look and feel much larger but they didn't. He assured me they will expand as the muscles relax and to be patient. That is something I am not :) I found out later the size I had expected is not what I had. These were smaller but he felt for my frame they would look the best and give it time. I am 5'5" 145 lbs at that time, now 128 lbs.4 months past and I still didn't feel like they were the size I wanted. My C cup bra was a loose so Dr. Gabriel suggested a fat transfer or if I really insisted he would exchange the gummy bears for round implants but he didn't recommend them for me. I trusted his judgement and had the fat transfer. He took fat from my thighs, I had a lot of bruising, it took over a month for the bruising to go away. My thighs have not looked this good for awhile though so I was quite happy with that! My breast looked much fuller and I was very pleased with the outcome.....till I lost 20+lbs! Most of the fat transfer was gone. 4 months later I spoke with Dr. Gabriel & I asked why my left breast felt/looked smaller than the right. He reviewed my photos, it was really noticeable from the side view, and suggested a lift on the left breast. So another surgery was scheduled for Dec 31st. He also said the larger MX550 were FDA approved now and he could exchange the MX445 out for them since I had been concerned about my size. I already looked pretty good and was getting use to the MX445 so I wasn't sure I wanted a exchange. Up to the surgery day I thought do I really want to go through this again?, more drains and pain. I went through with it and no drains this time! Recovery has been pretty easy. I had been taking the pain meds and only off work a few days. No one even knew I had another surgery. I have to admit I love the MX550 size for me. I am so thankful Dr. Gabriel suggested the larger size. I have not looked this good for years! I nursed 3 kids for 1 year each and believe me not much was left. Having breast cancer is something I would never wish anyone to go through. If you have a choice I would highly recommend Dr. Gabriel. He is an amazing surgeon. I didn't know this site Real Self was out there till months after I was diagnosed. After seeing others photos online I feel so lucky to have such a gifted Doctor. Breast cancer takes at least a year out of you life, I feel blessed I am alive and finally feel pretty again. More

Breast Cancer Survivor - Vancouver, WA - Dr. Gabriel helped me recover from a very tough time in my life. I chose to have double mastectomy and reconstruction. My husband and I interviewed 7 doctors in Portland and Vancouver. Dr. Gabriel was the only one who listened, explained and provided all the answers to every question we asked. He made me feel like I was his only patient, I never had to wait too long in the waiting room or for him to return my calls. It's been more than a year since the surgery and I am so happy with the job he did. The incision are under my breasts so when I look in the mirror I see me and not the battle wounds from a darker period of my life. I will be forever grateful for everything he's done for me. Everyone that I have met on his staff have been extremely gracious. They are always up to date with all my information and they ask follow up questions and I feel that they have studied my chart. I couldn't of had a better experience anywhere else. More

After my first surgery, I had complications with being sick and having a hard time keeping food down, it was a weekend, he personally called to check up on me and made an emergency call to my pharmacy to get me the right meds. That alone, to me, just shows how much he truly takes his job seriously and how much he cares and takes care of his patients and their well being. I couldn't ask for a better Doctor/surgeon. More

Twice as grateful. - Dr. Gabriel and his team brought the fact of being a breast cancer survivor to a whole different level. Without a doubt, I was beyond grateful and happy to have survived cancer after chemotherapy and a double mastectomy. At that point, I considered myself a winner already. Who cared about appearances if I was alive? I wasnâ??t even sure that I wanted to have the reconstruction at all. I am 60 years old and frankly that was the least of my concerns. I only did it because it was offered to me as part of cancer care and the insurance covered it. That was the best decision I made! I had the reconstruction done a year ago and I am very happy with the results. Doctor Gabriel is very professional and caring. He has done a very good job of following up with me. After the experience of surviving breast cancer I didnâ??t think that appearances mattered but they actually do. Thanks to Doctor Gabriel my breast looks better than it did before the cancer experience. Now, besides being grateful for having survived the monster my confidence in my appearance is great. I am twice as grateful now: one for being a survivor and two for having new and very nice breasts. More

At the follow-up appointments he goes out of his way to be sure all your questions are answered and that you are happy with the final results. I will definitely use him for any future necessary or elective procedures I have done. More

Breast Reconstruction After Double Mastectomy Due to Breast Cancer - Vancouver, WA - Dr. Gabriel was recommended to me by my breast cancer surgeon and by other chemo/cancer patients I met during treatment. From the very first visit he has been caring and willing to listen to my questions and concerns. He has helped guide both myself and my husband through this process of breast reconstruction. At each visit he has shown concern for both my emotional and physical health. He is professional and yet probably the most personable doctor I have met through this process. I have already and will continue to recommend Dr. Gabriel to friends and families. More

Breast Explant - 55 and Wanted Them Gone! Vancouver, WA - Dr Gabriel was confident. He was not overly talkative, but I like that. He advised me on what could be done, what I shouldnt do at all such as lipo. He talked with me throughout procedure, constantly checking if I was experiencing any pain. He let me know when I would feel pressure or squeezing. First side was very easy, 2nd side was harder so he added more pain reliever. Quick followup in 3 days, answered any questions I had, but not many since I had had a great result and experience. I would highly recommend him to other seeking breast explant, or reconstruction.

34 Years Old, Mother of 1 - Vancouver, WA - I wanted implants ever since I was suppose to have breasts around 14. The women in our family just never had abundance in that area. Never having the extra funds and working as a firefighter I did not want the extra weight or possible back strain. Once I got my new job that didn't require as much strenuous work, I made the call to Peace Health for a consultation with Dr. Gabriel. I had also went to 2 other consultations, both in Oregon. I selected Dr. Gabriel for three reasons. First, he came highly recommended from family and good friends who had either gone to him or knew someone who had for the same procedure and were more than pleased. Secondly, they are local to me as I live in the Vancouver Washington area; So I knew all of my after care appointments would be a convenient. Finally I chose him because I like him and his staff. They were ready with all of my questions from start to finish (and I had some silly ones). The staff even informed me about the Care Credit Program that allowed me to afford-ably secure funds for the procedure, as I had come up short in cash. The ratings that I would give Dr. Gabriel are pretty high because he is a great Doctor who cares and concerns himself with his patients concerns. The staff took pictures and had personalized state of the art software to give me an idea of what different sizes would look like on me. That processes helped me get a better idea of what I was looking for. For a few weeks before my appointment I utilized the free rental implants to wear around in my day-to-day to gain perspective. They were great about letting me just pop into the office and change them out for different sizes (weighed by units and oz's, not cup size). The procedure went flawlessly. His staff did all of the foot work for me so all I had to do was walk in and they handled everything else; from appointments, pictures, trying different sizes so I was sure about what I wanted, getting me in quickly, mapping out the "what to do next" to after care and beyond. I can not think of a way to fully express how happy I am with the results, not to mention the extreme boost in self confidence. I am so completely happy with the full spectrum of my procedure, my only regret is not doing this sooner. The after surgery perks are amazing as they pass out some generous freebie's. I trust Dr. Gabriel and his staff, and that goes a long way with me. I would recommend them to family or anyone who is even remotely curious about getting this procedure done for at least a consultation. I have them on speed-dial now and will work with only them in the future, given I decide to have any other procedures done. More

Father Time Catches Up to a 38 Yo Male Professional - Seattle, WA - "Ha! I'd never get Botox. I'll be fine as long as I use sunblock." Well, the time came last year in 2014 when I noticed that my face was not looking a fresh as it did in my mind's eye. I guess you can't look 25 forever! I noticed a lot of wrinkles in my forehead area, and a sharp crease/furrow between my eyebrows from too much scowling (or thinking) at work. I tried to relax my face in the mirror and the furrow and lines were still apparent. As a man, I had reservations about getting botox. I always viewed it as something Beverly Hills housewives get with their girlfriends. Needless to say, I got over my preconceived notions and saw Dr. Champaneria upon recommendation from a friend. My first impression - he has got to be one of the most POLITE doctors that I have ever seen! His demeanor was gentle and he answered all of my questions and fears in regards to the process and expected results with a lot of care and detail. Dr. C put me at ease and I went forward with the procedure with minimal anxiety and worry.After the botox, the furrow between my eyebrows completely disappeared within a few days! My forehead looked smoother as well. Most importantly, I am still able to make expressions with my face - which was the main concern that I had about the procedure. In short - I highly recommend Dr. C based upon my interactions with him, his friendly office staff, and (ultimately) my results. I will definitely go back for follow-up treatments. More

Excellent doctor - Every girl has that story, times they were made fun of, just looking in the mirror wishing things would disappear or change, even just rearrange.When I asked this Doctor why he does what he does it wasnâ??t for the paycheck or the glory he had a different story. â??I want to make you feel as beautiful as I see youâ?, to choose to use his skill to my confidence help rebuild. I really thought I'd need a girl, what could a man understand? But in his kind and gentle way he was able to convey, that he truly cared and would in every way do his very best, he set my mind at rest.Not only his manner set him apart, not even just his kind heart. His knowledge won me over from the very beginning, he knew exactly what to do, never faltered, never without a clue. To say that I am satisfied with the work he performed would be an understatement for he'll never understand how my life he has transformed.For those out there looking for a physician who will really listen, make sure your end result is utterly without fault and whose care doesnâ??t end poorly or prematurelyâ?¦I recommend Manish Champaneria, MDThank you Doctor for what you did for me!

39 Year Old Man Who Felt He Didn't Look Like Himself. Riverside, CA - Dr. Champaneria was referred to me by a friend. I felt like I was starting to not look like myself anymore. But I didn't know why or if I could -- or even watched to fix it. Terribly nervous, I made the consult. Dr. Champ -- as I call him -- was professorial, yet casual and got to the root of what I didn't like about my changing face structure. Then got right to providing reasonable options & pros/cons for each. My apprehension was calmed and said 'Lets do it!' The procedure was simple & painless. I felt like my face enlivened immediately -- but best of all, my attitude did too! More

36 Yrs Old, 4 Children, Small Sagging Breasts - Vancouver, WA - After having 4 children my boobs left little to be desired after having the life sucked out of them lol. I decided that it was finally time for me to love the way I looked again and that is where miracle worker Dr. Manish Champaneria stepped in! I wanted to go over the muscle with saline implants...Dr. C took the time to explain in detail all the reasons that I should go with silicone and not saline. I was a 32B and I wanted to be a D...he explained that since I am such a petite build with very little breast tissue to cover the implant going over the muscle, that the saline would look a like a disaster of sorts on my frame and that he, as well as I, would not enjoy the end result. I am sooo glad that I took his advice because let me tell you I AM IN LOVE with them! He has a great sense of humor and comforting bedside manner...I can't seem to say "thank you" enough times! :) More

In the last year I have had four and each time my skin improved. Jauna, the esthetician at Allen Garbriel's office, did them in conjunction with starting me on a skin care line called Skin Medica.

In the Competitive Field of Plastic Surgery – Dr Gabriel Stands out As the Leader in the Industry. Vancouver, WA - My procedures/products: Gummy Bear breast Implants – above the muscleJuvederm Voluma – cheeks and lipsLatisse – eye lashesSkin Medica Products: TNS Essential Serum, Lytera, Retinol Complex, Daily Physical Defense Sunscreen.Skin peelsLaser treatmentsThe above list sounds really long, time consuming and expensive but what really was shocking to me was how quick and easy everything was.Choosing to have elective plastic surgery was a huge decision for me to make and I knew the key to success of the surgery would be in the hands of the surgeon that I entrusted my body to. I work in the healthcare field and my job places me in contact with literally hundreds of physician’s offices. It is amazing what you can tell about an office the minute you walk into the waiting room. The best words to describe my initial impression of Dr. Gabriel’s office are caring, professional, technologically advanced and classy. I felt that was a great start. At my first meeting with Dr. Gabriel I was amazed not only at his expertise but his sincere compassion, interest and kindness that he directed at me as his patient. He took the time to really listen to what I wanted and he came up with a plan that turned out INCREDIBLE! I call it my “Mid-life Makeover” this is what happened next:Skin Products:I started seeing Dr. Gabriel’s esthetician Jauna, for skin peels, laser treatments and facial products. She is a very knowledgeable professional who changed what I will use on my skin FOREVER by introducing me to a line of products by SkinMedica. What amazing products! I had no reaction to any of the products or the chemical peel. With my history of severe allergic reaction to anything I use on my skin (including anaphylaxis after a facial) I must say I was in total awe! On day one, I waited for the red irritated feeling that I usually get and nothing happened. On day two I really expected to see signs of a rash, still nothing. On day three I literally looked at the products sitting on my counter and said out loud, "Where have you been all my life?”. On day seven, I gathered up hundreds of dollars worth of prescription creams and expensive facial products that I had purchased and I threw them all away. 3 Dermatologists and one Allergist could not figure out what was happening with my skin and the best explanation they could come up with was Roscea combined with skin changes during menopause. After one week using the SkinMedica products I could feel the difference and after one month I could really see the difference. No more irritation and the fine lines are gone! The products are a little pricey but after using them, quite honestly they are worth every single penny in results. Latisse:About 2 years ago, I noticed that my eyelashes were getting pretty thin and definitely were much shorter. I started using Latisse every night before I went to bed and within about a month my eyelashes were noticeably thicker and definitely longer. After two months I had nice full and long looking lashes. Laser Treatment/ Skin Peels: Next came some quick and easy laser zaps that took care of the little spider veins on my face. In literally minutes the annoying spider veins that had been on my face for years were completely gone. Crazy fast treatment with huge results! Also, equally quick face peels which sound a little intimidating but they are really easy. Basically the product is wiped on and within about 3 days my face began to peel like after a sunburn. I just made sure I had moisturizer on hand to apply throughout my workday. After a couple of days the peeling was gone, as were some of the fine lines in my face, and my skin felt so smooth. The only word of caution I found with face peels is to avoid having one done at least a week before a big event so all the peeling is completely gone.Juvederm Voluma – cheeks and lips:I had the Juvederm Voluma done at the same time as my breast implants. Ladies, waking up after surgery and having perfect breasts AND a face that looks years younger is a feeling like no other! I will be hooked on Juvederm Voluma for life! I had some slight swelling on my cheeks and lips and a light bruise on one cheek. The light bruise was easy to cover with make-up and was gone in about 5 days. The swelling in my cheeks went down really fast and was gone in less than 48 hours. My lips took about two weeks for the swelling to go completely away. I took 10 days off work and went back looking very well rested. That is the great thing about having Juviderm done correctly, people notice that you look really good, well rested, more youthful but it doesn’t look like you have had “work” done on your face.Gummy Bear Implants (above the muscle):As I discussed above, my first appointment was a consultation with Dr. Gabriel to discuss my plan. The next appointment his office staff coordinated for me to go from one specialized member of his staff to another – with basically no waiting in between. First, I worked with his Surgical Nurse, who educated me on the different types of implants and answered all my questions on the actual procedure. I was even able to feel all of the actual implants so I could choose the product that was right for me. Next, I saw his awesome nurse Ashlie, who gave me different sizes of implants to try on until I narrowed my choice down to two sizes. Then the real fun began. She took pictures of my breasts and put those pictures into the computer where she then added the breast implant sizes that I picked out. I was able to see myself with the “new body” in 3 D. It was truly amazing and super helpful in choosing the right size. I was then sent home with the size implant I chose to try out. Trying on clothes and experimenting with the look of the implants was very helpful in determining what size I truly was comfortable with. While I was getting to know my implants, Dr. Gabriel was busy studying my 3D pictures. At my next appointment we went over size and positioning. Dr. Gabriel had determined that due to an irregular shaped rib cage I would need mesh to keep my breasts pointing forward (one tended to wander off to the right). I also told him that I felt the implant that I had chosen was slightly too large. He was totally in tune to what I was saying and the look that I was going for and we decided on a slightly smaller size. Dr. Gabriel sent me home with all my pre-op instructions, which included a vitamin regiment, what to expect the day of surgery and post op instructions. Every detail was covered.On the day of surgery, surprisingly I was not afraid. Dr. Gabriel and his staff had answered all my questions so I just felt excitement. I had the Gummy Bear implants placed above the muscle with mesh. Since I had mesh placed, I also needed to have drains for about a week. Waking up from surgery and getting my first look at my new breasts was pretty cool. Dr. Gabriel nailed the size spot on and the shape of the Gummy Bears looked absolutely natural. For the first time in my life, I looked at my breasts and thought they were absolutely perfect.Dr. Gabriel’s post op care was incomparable. He called to check on me the evening after surgery as well as the following day. At my in office post-op he checked me over carefully to make sure I was on track and happy with my results. I could not have been happier! I drove 200 miles from where I live to have Dr. Gabriel do my “Midlife Makeover” so he made sure that I was in good shape to drive home. I had the surgery done on a Friday and I drove the 200 miles home after my post-op appointment on Tuesday. It has now been 4 months since my “Mid-life Makeover” and I am so grateful for the experience. At that inevitable time in a woman’s life when you have to work twice as hard to keep everything from heading South, it was wonderful to get a “lift”. The makeover started a chain reaction in me which caused me to start workin More

The swelling in my cheeks went down really fast and was gone in less than 48 hours. My lips took about two weeks for the swelling to go completely away. I took 10 days off work and went back looking very well rested. That is the great thing about having Juviderm done correctly, people notice that you look really good, well rested, more youthful but it doesn’t look like you have had “work” done on your face. Dr. Gabriel did such a terrific job, I could not be happier! More

Laser Treatment for Spider Veins - Amazing! Vancouver, WA - I had some little spider veins around my nose, chin and cheek area that I wanted removed. Jauna, the Esthetician at Dr. Gabriel's office, carefully explained that the laser would feel like a little light rubber band snap and would last just a few seconds. It was really easy and in literally minutes the annoying spider veins that had been on my face for years were completely gone. Crazy fast treatment with huge results! More

44 Breast Lift with Implants - Vancouver, WA - Dr. Gabriel is one of the most amazing doctors that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I recently had to have a breast mass removed and decided that since I was going under, I might as well have some improvements. I did not want to be larger in size, I just wanted perky fuller breasts. I never specified any specific implant sizes, but clearly discussed my expectations with Dr. Gabriel. He worked closely with my oncologist to come up with the right strategy to meet my expectations. I can not tell you how happy I am with the results. I was slightly nervous about not being specific about implant size and leaving it up to his discretion, but he did not disappoint. He called me the evening of my surgery to check on me, and told me that he tried 4 different sizes before settling on the final one. This man is a perfectionist and I would recommend him to anyone. He will be straightforward and honest about what he can and can not do for you, and he will honestly tell you if you don't need anything done either. He and his staff are 100% professional, caring, and wonderful to interact with. I am one happy patient More

I managed to stay calm because he is so easy going and kind. His staff at the hospital were amazing as well! I had better treatment with breast augmentation than I did when I had my c-sections. I got a little emotional once I was on the table in the operating room but Dr. Gabriel was right there. He asked my favorite pandora station, turned it up, and the nurses and anesthesiologist literally stroked my face and talked to me until I fell asleep. Very impressed and grateful for Dr. Gabriel and his team! I highly recommend him! More

Circumferential Body Lift - Peace Health Plastic Surgery Dr. Manish Champerina - I'm a busy wife and mamma to 5 kiddos and over 8 years have lost well over 100lbs, leaving me with unsightly loose skin. Over the Fall I was able to take off the last 20lbs, and my husband and I made the decision to begin the plastic surgery process to finish my journey. I had several consults with local surgeons, but when I met Dr. Champaneria I knew he was the one I wanted to fix me up. ;) Dr. C gave me a new hope that I could be that girl I felt like I was. He offered several procedure ideas and was patient with me as I went back and forth in my decision making process. He saw me in his office as much as I needed to help honestly and truthfully guide me to the right decision. What sealed the deal for me was when he shared that he has ocd in the OR, striving for the very best results he can get I connected to that lol! My surgery went beautifully, and recovery was uncomplicated and my pain was managed very well, yet it was still incredibly hard. This is a BIG surgery and when people warn you of the intensity of recovery, believe them. Dr. C and his whole team held my hand every step of the way and see me as often as I need. The support I was given is very comforting and has helped tremendously. Nurse Ashley is amazing, and has been a great resource for me and is a pro at pulling drains pain free. ;) My tummy looks beautiful. I never knew I could look and feel so good. At 5 weeks out my insision scar looks incredible already and I have such a hope for my future now. Dr. C is a true artist, while being very conservative to minimize my pain during recovery. I can't glow enough over him and his whole team. 5 stars all the way. More

39 YR Old - 375 Cc Gummy Bear Natural Shaped Implant - Vancouver, WA - 3 weeks post op I am overall happy with the outcome. I will need a lift eventually due to nursing two kids, but my first step was to get the implants and let them settle a bit until I do a lift. I gave the final decision to Dr Gabriel on Size - he made a perfect decision. I liked the sizing of the 305cc in the round silicone which I tested at home - He went with a 375 CC Gummy Bear Natural Shaped implant and I just measured at D-DD sizing which is exactly what I was looking for. The staff were all very personable and great to work with. Dr Gabriel personally called me a day after to see how I was doing. At the very end of 2 weeks I felt significant decrease in pain and feel like I'm getting my life back and am able to sleep on my side again plus lift heavier weight than 5 lbs as of today. More

Almost 40, and Time to Undo What Breastfeeding Three Children Can Do to a Person! Vancouver, WA - I agree with the other reviews here. What I especially like about Dr. Gabriel, though, is his attention to what is "worth it" vs. what is over the top. I came in with questions about several procedures, and an initial consultation with him really grounded me. Breast augmentation was all that I really wanted in the end; I just didn't know that at first. My point is that this office could have made a lot more money off of me. Instead, the created a lifetime customer. If there are to be other cosmetic procedures in my future, I will definitely consult Dr. Gabriel's office first.One last comment about the procedure itself: This doctor is a very skilled surgeon. If you've had surgery before, a swift and sure scalpel usually means a speedy recovery. I have been amazed at how quickly and how well the healing process has been for me. I'm told by friends in the medical community that this is probably because of Dr. Gabriel's skill in the operating room more than any other factor. More

Breast Implants with Gummy Bears. - Vancouver, WA - I can't say enough about Dr. Gabriel. He is a kind and considerate man. My mother was a patient of his. She recently passed away from cancer. His caring about my mom was so sweet and genuine. His bedside manor is wonderful. He does excellent work! I was an A cup and couldn't not even fill it. I'm 5 weeks post op and am extremely happy with the "new" me! He's great about fitting the implants to your body type. I feel the size was a perfect fit. His staff is always so welcoming and friendly. Highly, highly recommend Dr. Gabriel! More

47-year Old Breast Cancer Survivor - Reconstruction, Nipple-grafting & Gummy Bear Implants - Vancouver, WA - I had a double-mastectomy after chemo for breast cancer. I was terrified of having surgery when I had my first consultation with Dr. Gabriel in May. He and his staff were very confident and reassuring. Since my surgery in June, I've come to look forward to my visits to Dr. Gabriel's office. Everyone is caring and attentive. I'm also very pleased with my results. My scars are minimal, the nipple-grafting procedure was simple and my implants are better than the originals! Although I never would have asked for a breast cancer diagnosis, I'm grateful to have met, and been under the care of, Dr. Gabriel. More

I have never met a doctor that is so personal and caring for each one of his patients. I come from a small town, with a population of 1700, however, he treats me just just like one of his upper class, more prestigious patients. He is down to earth and very funny. His knowledge of his profession has impressed me to no end. He is generous with his time and his staff must be hand selected by him because they are all wonderful people. Thank you Dr. Gabriel for all that you have done for me. More

Implants removed after 22 years!! Couldn't be happier. - I really need the collective support of realself to get through my explant scheduled on 9/24/14. Here's my story:I was a late bloomer, slim, and had an athletic build as a teen. My dad teased me quite often about my lack of breasts and then would follow up by saying that I could always get a "boob job." We'll, at the age of 19, that's exactly what I did. It makes me sick to my stomach now to think back on his comments. Who the heck says that to their daughter? I have a daughter and would never dream of telling her anything other than she is beautiful the way she is. I can't remember the implant size, but I told the surgeon to make me proportional. I was a small b cup. I look back at pictures before the BA and I had lovely breasts. There was nothing wrong my size. When I came out of the surgery, I was quite large and the surgeon told me not to worry. The implants would drop and the swelling would go away and I would love my size. I had gone from a B to a double DD. The size didn't look natural and I looked out of proportion. The surgery was very painful. I woke up from anesthesia and immediately couldn't breathe, which I was told was normal and the chest muscles would eventually loosen. About 2 days after surgery, I started having issues with lactation. I had never been pregnant, but I started leaking breast milk. When I called the surgeon, he told me that my prolactin level must have elevated because of the surgery. Such a weird complication! I now know that prolactin levels can elevate in response to chest wall injuries. It's a problem that I've had to deal with off and on for the last 22 years. About 2 months after the surgery, one of the implants started to slip. It was very noticeable in clothing. I went back to the surgeon and he replaced the slipped implant. I should have just had them both removed. The surgeon was still insistent that I was still not healed from the surgery and I would get my desired size. This never happened, unfortunately. And over time, the implants have shifted causing a wide presentation and uneven nipples. After my second surgery, my sister was diagnosed with malignant hyperthermia. This causes a very serious reaction to anesthesia that is genetically passed. I grew to hate my implants, but felt that my now 50% odds of having MH made a 3rd elective surgery too risky. If I knew the implants could be removed under local anesthesia, I would have removed them years ago. I've had 2 consults and feel confident with my PS. I'm very concerned about having an anxiety attack during the procedure. The dr prescribes a sedative, but said I won't need an IV. I think that rules out conscious sedation. I really really want the implants removed and I'm hopeful that will motivate me to face my fear about being awake during the procedure (such a better word than surgery!). The procedure is set for 9/24/14. My breasts are soft and the dr doesn't recommend capsule removal or drains. I was told it would be a simple "skin surgery" with little risk of complication. I should be back to work in a week. I'm not worried about how I'll look after the explant or the recovery period, my only concern is for the procedure itself. I could really use some support. More

Breast Cancer/Double Mastectomy Surgery with Immediate Expanders/delayed Reconstruction Due to Radiation - Vancouver, WA - AMAZING, Caring, Not just a doctor/surgeon.. I can't pick one word to describe him.When I found out I had breast cancer and my surgeon Dr. Storm-Dickerson (who he and she work MARVELOUSLY together) mentioned his name (cause I had no surgeon names just laying around in my head) I knew he was the one who would help take care of me. From the first day I met him he has always made me feel like I am important to him. Not just me as a patient, but as a person, an individual, a woman. When we received the news that I had to have radiation and the expanding would have to stop (only one so far) and the saline had to be taken out. After he had received the call from the Radiation Dr., the first thing he asked them, how is she doing? did anyone call her this weekend. He was the only one who remembered that when I was diagnoised with breast cancer I stated very STRONGLY that I didn't and wouldn't want to have radiation due to many personal reasons, one being what bad effects it still has on my Aunt. But the "big" test on the largest tumor showed chemo wouldn't help, but that we had to start radiation. I was devastated to say the least.But the moment he walked into the room and asked me how I was doing I just started to cry, and he just stood there and gave me the most reassuring hug ever, that as soon as the radiation was done, I was his again, and that he promised he would make it all okay. That was his job, to help me and be there for me. So I knew as they emptied the expanders it would be okay, still hurt inside but I knew. So last radiation treatment was a few weeks ago. And we didn't let any grass grow under my feet, the expansion began just like he said it would, immediately. Not that he can do anything about the pain from the expanders except offer me some suggestions to relieve the pain. I know I am in great hands. His staff ALL of them are awesome!!! More

Im 5'3 125lbs and have three kids. My bra size is a 34 D with cleavage. I love the way they look they are symmetrical and the size is perfect. The silicone feels much better then the saline it feels softer. Dr Gabriel and his staff were very friendly and helpful and I will definitely use him in the future! More

Dr. Gabriel is a very skilled and compassionate surgeon. I had a breast lift and augmentation after 3 kids in June 2013. My breast tissue fluctuated 3 sizes after twins and a singleton pregnancy. I was nervous about the results being unnatural. The results far exceeded my expectations. I have a very natural look and scarring is minimal. I was also pleased with the staff in his office. I always felt like my care was a priority from the consultation to my one year follow up. I would highly recommend Dr. Gabriel to any friend or family member. You will not find a better bed-side manner. More

Breast Reduction, Lipo of the Flanks, Inner/outter Thighs and Fat Transfer to Glutes - Vancouver, WA - I can’t say enough wonderful thing about Dr. Allen Gabriel. He is not only one of the very best in field, but he is also the most down to earth and compassionate doctor I’ve met. He is a perfectionist, making sure that you get the best results possible and takes that extra time to go the extra mile to ensure that you are ok both mentally and physically. I felt so comfortable and confident from the day I met him in the consultation. He was very honest with me and advised me on areas I should do and areas I should leave alone and I appreciated that so much. My after surgery care was amazing. Dr. Gabriel keeps close tabs on his patients and truly cares about them and how they are doing. He has this way of making you feel like you are his only patient and you never feel like just another name in a chart. His whole staff is so warm and welcoming. The ladies at the front desk are always sweet and have a smile on their face. His nurse, Ashley, was so helpful every time I came to the clinic or called. Melissa, the surgery scheduler, worked so hard and pulled off a miracle getting the insurance auth that was supposed to take 6-8 weeks in only 3.5 weeks so I could keep the dates I needed for the surgery and recovery time! Everyone went above and beyond for me and I can’t thank them all enough. I am so happy with my outcome. I received a breast reduction, liposuction of the flanks and the inner/out thigh and a last minute decision to do fat transfer to my gluts. I’m so impressed with the outcome and so happy that I trusted Dr. Gabriel on what areas to do and which ones to leave alone. I left a lot of it to his digression and knew I was in good hands. I truly wish there were more doctors out there like him. He is hands down the most caring, compassionate, down to earth, intelligent, generous, funny, passionate doctors I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. It’s so refreshing to have a doctor active and present every step of the way from start to finish. You are one in a million Dr. Gabriel. Thank you again! More

To say Dr Gabriel is great is an understatement. I wish I had a better word to describe him. His staff are the BEST! They have the same wonderful qualities just like him.He is compassionate, caring and most importantly very knowledgeable about his job. I am a breast cancer reconstruction patient and if you see my body you won't be able to tell that I had a mastectomy done. He did an AMAZING job!

Bilateral Breast Reconstruction Following Mastectomy - Vancouver, WA - Dr. Gabriel is an amazing combination of brilliance, incredible medical expertise and skill, artistic perfectionism, strong integrity, tremendous compassion, and an unparelleled depth of understanding of the overall impacts of a breast cancer diagnosis for a woman and her husband. Dr. Gabriel's "whole body" approach to easing the anguish of a woman who has just received a cancer diagnosis is a very rare trait that sets him so far apart from other surgeons in the industry who may have great skill but lack the depth of compassion and understanding of how life has changed for a woman in this circumstance. I have so appreciated how incredibly caring, understanding, and compassionate Dr. Gabriel has been to both me and my husband as we have struggled with life's changes following my cancer diagnosis. His drive to ensure that "all of me" is doing well -- not just the reconstructed part -- is a trait that I cherish because I know just how real his passion is that I be made whole, in every sense of the word. He is dedicated completely to doing whatever he can to help my life return to normal. Dr. Gabriel remembered the date of the consultation I had with my oncologist when I was to receive my oncotype score that would determine whether or not I would have to have chemotherapy; he called me before I was even out of that consultation because he cared about this result and the impact it would have on me and my reconstruction, and quite simply just because he wanted to let me know that he was thinking about me . . . . and then we both celebrated when the results showed that I would not need any chemotherapy. Dr. Gabriel calls me immediately to let me know the results of any new suspicious growths he removes, because he doesn't want me to worry a minute longer than I have to about the results. He asks how my husband is doing if we're not both present at a follow-up appointment, and he always talks to my husband during each appointment so that my husband feels completely included in my care and the decisions we're making together. Dr. Gabriel seeks to ensure that I'm absolutely satisfied with the results and always talks about the options we have for making any needed changes. He looks me in the eye with such focus and concentration that I know I'm the only patient he has right at that moment and my entire health and welfare are his only concern. His reassurances throughout this difficult journey have kept me from panic more times than I can count, and the results I've received are nothing short of amazing when I look in the mirror. To be enhanced rather than deformed, to look normal rather than butchered or even compromised is a GIFT that Dr. Gabriel gave to me with the incredible skill of his hands, the sharp intelligence of his mind, and the genuine compassion in his heart that no woman should go through the rest of her life with devasting daily reminders in the mirror that cancer invaded her life.I have also been the grateful recipient of Dr. Gabriel's innovative and highly-successful surgical techniques and advances in silicone implants. Dr. Gabriel remains on the cutting edge (no pun intended) of new reconstruction techniques and implant innovations that will reduce the intense pain and enhance the natural appearance for women undergoing breast reconstruction, and I'm a walking testament to his commitment to continue to improve the reconstruction process for women. My results are amazing, and I walk with my posture erect and my head held high because I am proud that I survived well and blessed that I had an amazing doctor on my side to help make this happen for me.

7 months post op- still super happy! - I don't live in the Portland/Vancouver area but was searching for the best Dr near family and that would work with an out of area patient. I also wanted a Doctor that performed the surgery in a top hospital. The moment I met with Dr Gabriel I knew he was it! His care has been fantastic from my consult through the after care, and I love his staff. He truly is an outstanding surgeon, a caring and compassionate person, a master of his skill, and a real artist! He gave me "me" back, I wouldn't go with any other Doctor! More

Dr.Gabriel performed my breast reconstruction in 2011 after my mastectomy. He had to make a nipple for me because mine had to be removed due to the cancer. He did this using an innovative method. He worked with my insurance company to insure my insurance company paid for the entire reconstruction. He made sure I got the best care I could possibly receive. My reconstruction is beautiful. He has made me whole again. I have been seeing him for two years. I feel so lucky to have him on my team. He has been supportive and has kept me informed of my rights and choices throughout my journey. He has made the difference between my surviving and thriving this ordeal. I highly recommend him to anyone needing a 5 star surgeon. More

Dr. Gabriel and his staff are kind, compassionate and thorough in treating patients. Each person is treated with kindness and respect. You are more than a chart number, but a person with family, friends and feelings. They go out of their way to protect your privacy and ensure the comfort of their patients. Dr. Gabriel is a trailblazer in the treatment of reconstruction after a breast cancer diagnosis, and you can be assured that he will be treating you with the best equipment, in the safest, environment and will communicate all your rights and best practices that are applicable to your treatment. Dr. Gabriel is highly respected and well regarded in the surgeon community and is often teaching other surgeons new and exciting practices that will make treating women afflicted with cancer, less invasive and full of dignity. Dr. Gabriel believes in treating the body and the mind of his patients. Sometimes the mental scars are deeper than the physical ones. More

Breast Cancer Survivor - Dr. Gabriel keeps closes taps on his patients after surgery.

Extremely happy client!!! - After giving birth to my daughter almost a year ago I wanted to look into having a Breast Augmentation. I literally searched for over six months, made at least fifty phone calls and made about seven consultations with some of the local surgeons in our area. After not feeling comfortable or confident with any of the Doctors I had met with, I went onto Dr. Gabriel's website. I made an appointment and was able to get in fairly quickly. All of my questions were answered by their staff and when I met Dr. Gabriel I knew right away that he was "the one". After the Doctor answered even more of my questions one of their nurses took photos of me so I could see the befores and afters on their 3D photo screen which was awesome and not available anywhere else I had been. Before I left that day my surgery date was scheduled and I was very confident that I was in good hands. The surgery went awesome!!! Way better then what I expected and I couldn't be happier. Nothing but great things to say about their team!!! More

I found him to be compasssionate and caring and understanding. His staff and Nurses to be warm, friendly, inviting, understanding and encouraging. And of course without judgement. After having 2 sets of Twins and an abdominal Hystorectomy my tummy and hips were a mess! I did not like the way I looked. I came to Dr.Gabriel for help. I waited 12 long years to have this procedure done and I'm so very pleased to have had Dr. Gabriel fix me up! And boy did he ever do an Amazing job!! 3 months out and I still get choked up when I look at my reflection,and feel no rolls around my belly! I have so much more confidence in how I look and feel that I have just recently decided to follow one of my passions and entered myself into a course to become a Certified Yoga instuctor!

New pics! 1yr postop / 400cc saline overs after 12+ years - Superb board certified Plastic Surgeon right here in the Portland/Vancouver metro area. - - I did a lengthy review under Breast Implants, so anyone interested in why an implanted woman like me would HateMyImplants, you can check out my other review. Here I am going to try to keep it to a review of Explantation.A little info: I'm 35, had implants 12 years. They are smooth, round, mentor saline implants. I believe they are 360cc 'overfilled' to 400cc. My incisions were inframammary. I was a cute 36A before surgery. Post surgery a bulging 36C, and after 2 kids settled at small 36D. Capsular Contracture in my Left. It's developed along over the past 4 years, and now is really noticeable and intolerable. I'll be looking to get these implants removed through my existing under-breast scars and capsulectomy. I am currently planning no lift. My goal is to have (relatively) symmetrical breasts again. Capsular contracture has really made the Left distort and move, and I'd just love to have a small matched set again.I'll update when as I go through consultations and each step of the explant process. TTYS, girls. More

Registered Nurse - Seven months ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer....it is tremendously overwhelming and truly life changing for a woman and her family. However, with the great strides in breast cancer treatment, surgery and especially reconstruction, the outcome is positive! After a consultation visit with Dr. Gabriel, there was no question that I would have reconstruction along with my scheduled double mastectomies. All through the process, Dr. Gabriel has been so professional, caring and listens...not to mention his surgical expertise! His staff are equally caring, they are the best. His concerns are not only for his patient but also their family, my husband was very struck by this. My surgeries have been uneventful with minimal discomfort. I couldn't be happier with my results, I now feel like a whole normal woman and am not reminded every day that I had breast cancer. Dr. Gabriel has helped me to move forward. I will never be able to thank Dr. G and his wonderful staff enough! More

Kristin Demars - I was overwhelmed when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was handed a folder filled with Dr. Appointments. I thought to myself...who are these Dr's??? Well I can tell you now that I was truly blessed to be handed these Dr's. I can't say enough things about Dr.Gabriel and his staff. They explained everything so clearly and cared about my wants and needs. They made it clear that everything, I mean everything was about me! From day one until today (over a year later) there compassion, concern and professionalism has never changed! Dr. Gabriel is a perfectionist with an unbelievable work ethic. He holds his staff to the same standard. Even the 8th floor hospital nurses were kind and caring. They took such great care of me.

I have been blessed to be led to your office where all my decisions were clearly laid out for me with a path that you and your team have compassionately walked me through over these past 3 months. Women need to know about your clinic and that there is a better way to have a mastectomy done leaving the woman still feeling beautiful. I will forever be indebted to you, your amazing staff, and Dr. Storm. Together you have gotten all my cancer, reconstructed me so I am still beautiful to myself and my husband and did it with such a positive attitude filled with compassion. Thank you! More

46 Yrs Old, Bi-lateral Mastectomy w/ Immediate Reconstruction, Vancouver, WA - I had the most wonderful team of doctors. Dr. Allen Gabriel in Vancouver, WA is my plastic surgeon. He is the most normal down to earth, kind and caring human being that I have ever met. He truly cares about each and every one of his patients. Dealing with breast cancer, surgeries and all that goes with it, certainly takes its toll on a person, Dr Gabriel helped me in so many ways just by always being there, always willing to spend extra time with you if you maybe were having a bad day. If you were to meet him, you would agree with everything I've said. - - July 2013 I underwent a bi-lateral mastectomy with immediate reconstruction starting with expanders. Multiple surgeries followed but I am very happy with the final results. If any of you are facing this and you have questions, I don't mind sharing my experience at all, it's a difficult road and it's all about support so I'm here if you need me. More

55 Years Old, Had 3 Kids Pretty Young, and Have Wanted This for Quite Some Time - Vancouver, WA - I have enjoyed going in to talk with Dr. Champaneria, and he seems concerned, and very kind. The ladies of the office also are fantastic, and I'm looking forward to wonderful results! - - I had my first child at 19, and gained 40 lbs, seems like I never quite lost all the weight with each child, and always seemed to gain about 40 each time. I have not liked my boobs for quite some time, but now with menopause, they seem to have grown in leaps and bounds. I use to be a 34C, and have been all over the board but recently in my Wacoal bra, I am a 34G !! UGH. The shoulder grooves have been there forever it seems, and the weight of my girls have lately taken it's toll on my back, with annoying pain between my shoulder blades. Sometimes the grooves in my shoulders ached so bad, I would have to move my straps one way or the other to actually get some relief.I got the courage to talk to my husband about getting a reduction, and he's all for it. We have great insurance, and he said if that was covered "go for it". Then I was concerned about being out of proportion, so I will add a tummy tuck, which isn't covered, but he's fine with that now too. I have stalked this site since I have googled my questions, and this site came up. It's been one of the BEST things I've found, and yes, I'm quite obsessed with all the stories.I am hoping to end up with a C cup, I've been in to see the PS twice now, once for just the reduction, and the last time was to consult about a TT, and to see if I can do both at the same time. NO implants will be put in, as I do NOT want those for me. The first consult (July 30th) the PS talked about the anchor procedure, and I saw pictures or their patients. I also had my pictures taken, which is just horrendous, but needed for insurance purposes. The second consult (Oct 22) was for the tummy tuck questions, and more pictures were taken UGH.I also have a gall bladder scar that has to be taken into consideration as the PS has to work around that, so he said my scar might start a bit higher than the real low kinds, which is fine, since I won't wear a bikini at my age anyway. Dr. then talked about the lollipop procedure, and I've been stalking that procedure now. LOL I can't seem to upload my pictures, and I'm not sure why, so I'll continue working on that. I'm very active, and have a physical job, so I'm planning on taking the month of Feb. off, which seems so far away, but will probably get here quicker than I realize.When I first went in to see the PS I was 160 lbs, (I'm 5'4"), and now I'm at 155, hoping to get to 150 by surgery time. I'm extremely nervous, and am starting to have dreams of a botched surgery, but I guess that's just normal. I'm also hoping I'm mentally prepared for the change in my future body, as for years I've covered up my body, and IF I wear something slightly tight, I usually have a sweater, or a vest to help cover me up. I also feel extremely guilty for doing this, and will have to work through that too. Otherwise THANK YOU Ladies for all of your pictures, and suggestions and stories, to help all of us futures get through this!! More

55 Years Old, 3 Kids, and Have Wanted This for Quite Some Time - Portland Area - If anyone is looking for THAT PS in the Vancouver Area, Dr. Manish Champaneria is THE One! From the first time I stepped into their office, to start the process, it has been wonderful. The pre-op help, and answered questions put me right at ease. Now through post op, and the after care, it's just amazing. YES!! you will be scared, but in the hands of this skilled doctor, and his team, the results will be SO worth it, and the aftercare will be just as amazing. Give them a call, you will NOT be sorry that you chose Dr. Champaneria as your Plastic Surgeon. More

36 Years Old 5'3" 125 Lbs. Vancouver, WA - Breast fed two children, breast looked basically the same before and after. Maybe a little lower! I currently wear a 32-34 a-b depending on the bra and padding. Looking for full breast that don't look super fake! I have had a consultation, going on Friday to pay and make a few changes. I originally thought 287 cc was large enough, but have decided to go for 325cc. I'm afraid of being un happy with the smaller size since the whole idea of this process is to walk away with larger breast. I'm going to post some pics. A little nervous!! More

34 Years Old, in for Fuller Lips and Advice on Past Procedure Results - Vancouver, WA - I initially visited Dr. Gabriel as I wanted a fuller appearance in my lips, and to even out a 'fat lip' that I have had since I was a child, as a result of a nasty fall onto a hardwood floor. I expressed that I wanted an overall fuller appearance, and that I would also like both sides of my upper lip to appear more symmetrical. He was not only kind, but so knowledgable and attentive. He was quick to offer advice on what he felt my best treatment options were, and we proceeded with Juvaderm. I cannot tell you how impressed I was with my result. While we were talking, he did offer the treatment option of removing a small piece of tissue to make a more symmetrical lip, and I kept it in the back of my mind. My next appointment with him was to discuss that option further. Much to my surprise, when I thought I was going in simply for a consult, he offered to do the procedure right then and there. I gladly took him up on his offer, and I will tell you, my life is forever changed. Something so small, and so simple has made such a dramatic difference in my life. He was incredibly comforting on my frazzled nerves, checking constantly that I was doing well, and describing what he was doing so I didn't panic. He was fast and meticulous, and my result has been amazing. He also took the time to look at what I felt like was abnormal or excessive scarring from a past breast augmentation, and he again offered options, thoughts, and reassurance. He then set me up with a series of laser treatments on the scarred area and a topical cream to help fade scarring, and did not charge me a thing. I was obviously floored. The professionalism, kindness, generosity, and talent of this man are unsurpassed. He has incredible bedside manner, and literally makes you feel like you are a part of the family. I truly wish that I would've ventured out to find him prior to my breast surgery, as I know that I would've been so much more pleased with the result. You had better believe that I will be trusting him with my next surgery. I have since returned to his office for several other small procedures, only to be treated with kindness, respect, enthusiasm from all. I honestly could not think of anyone else I could recommend so highly and wholeheartedly to anyone. You will receive the best care available, and leave feeling fantastic. Dr. Gabriel is TRULY the best of the best. More

So Ready to Do This!!! Want to Be Free, Light and Natural! - Portland, Oregon - A HUGE thank you to all of the brave women who have shared their stories on this site. Your reviews have helped me to actively move forward with getting my implants removed, even though I've been thinking about it for years. I got my 350cc implants (under the muscle) 6 years ago right after I had my second child. I had my kids right in a row, so I went from being pregnant to nursing, to being pregnant again, to nursing again. I was an A cup, but with pregnancy/nursing, I grew to a beautiful B. I loved my breasts this size. Once I weaned my second son, for the first time in 2 years, I saw my little breasts again, and was unhappy. I thought breast implants were the answer and had the procedure done despite everyone around me telling me not to and that I didn't need it (sister, friends, husband). I thought I knew better. I asked for a "big B" and said I wanted to look as natural as possible. I ended up with 350 High Profile Saline implants and the change was dramatic. I am tall and thin, but had these perky and quite large (big C) breasts. I was embarrassed by them almost immediately, but thought I'd get used to it with time.I am a fitness instructor and discovered right away, the awful feeling (and appearance) of when I would flex my pec muscles (in a push-up for example). My breasts would pull apart and distort. I absolutely hated the way this felt and was embarrassed by how it looked. The other thing that bothered me was, because I had high profile implants, they were spaced wider on my chest and I did not have much cleavage. It looked unnatural! Fake, like two baseballs under my shirt.After about two years I did some research on ways to fix the problems, and I thought about explanting, but, at the time, I believed my results would be horrible, so I ended up having an implant exchange. My new doctor swapped saline for silicone and told me with a wider implant, I would have cleavage. He also cleaned up scar tissue saying my breasts would no longer distort with exercise. I now have 350cc (still under the muscle) moderate profile implants. Long story short, I still hate them. Yes, I have cleavage, but they look so WRONG on my body. They still distort, too!I feel like a fool for thinking (not just once but TWICE!) that implants would be the answer. They are most certainly NOT. I am a healthy and active person and I have realized that these implants do not mesh with who I am. I want to be free of these weights that I have been carrying around on my chest. I want to be able to hug my children and not feel like there is something between us. I want to have the lean and sleek body that I was born with, and that my husband loved so much. But most of all, I want to move into the next chapter in my life...implant FREE!!!I had my first consult today and it almost made me upset to the point of crying when both the nurse and the doctor spoke to me about exchanging the implants for a smaller size, or to go above the muscle instead. It took so much courage for me to get there and say (with all my heart), "I want these out, they are not for me" and to have the response be anything but supportive. It was disappointing. I have another consult (different PS) scheduled for next week. My goal is to have the procedure done in late November or December... I am so ready for this!!! Looking forward to being on the other side!!! More

Ruptured 24 Year Old Silicone Implants to Be Explanted with No Replacement or Lift - Vancouver, WA - I wrote letters to three doctors since I am traveling out-of-state for the surgery. Dr. Gabriel telephoned me after receiving my letter and spoke to me for nearly an hour. He explained what needed to be done for my health and how to start the process with my family doctor documenting my health problems and obtaining an MRI for insurance purposes. The other PS did not contact me after receiving my letter however, I did meet with each one to make an informed decision. I was very pleased with the consult and I am hopeful that I will have a successful outcome. More

5' 100lbs A cup+286ccs (Silicone, Allergan, Style 15) - Words can't describe how AMAZING Dr. Gabriel is. They say when u find the right surgeon you'll know it and I KNEW Dr. Gabriel was the one. He is so confident in what he does and makes you feel so comfortable and is there for you every small or big step before, during and well beyond surgery. He cares so much about his patients, he goes out of his way 24/7 and looks out for our best interests Iike were family, I love him and his sweet staff. I'm SO glad I picked HIM, I would never pick any other Dr. Really, you have to meet him to understand..and i have to say just meeting him makes me feel like a lucky person. I wish I could see him and his office staff more often! He deserves way way way more than 5 stars. I don't know if it's possible to thank or reward a doctor and person this incredible. More
