Dr. Kays has done my breast expander fills for the past two months. He has been awesome as well as his entire staff. Wilmington Plastic Surgery is a very professional office and I highly recommend it to anyone.
I thought he spent good time with me but wanted to do more work than I truly needed with the price being almost 12,000$ witch is more than the famous Dr. Debrow on botched who I saw last year. In all if he came down on price I would have chose him
Dr. Kays is just the best! He removed a Stage One melanoma from my chest area. Although he told me there would be scarring, I am super happy with the results, everything is looking very good and I am bathing suit ready. Many thanks to him and his assistant, Kristin, for a patient-centered approach to my issue and a wonderful caring atmosphere!
I went to Dr. Kays for a second opinion on my breast reconstruction that was done by another plastic surgeon. He was recommended by a couple of women on breastcamcer.org He is incredible! I love what he did for me. I highly recommend him to women that are looking to have reconstruction after a mastectomy. He really listened to what I wanted as an outcome. Driving 6 hours to see him was well worth it!
Dr. Kays did my breast augmentation a little over a year ago. I am extremely pleased! The staff and Dr. Kays were really pleasant to work with. The only thing I regret is that I did not do this 20 years ago!
I would love to thank Kari and Dr. Kays for making me feel so loved and comfortable. Dr. Kays did a fabulous job with my breast reconstruction! He is very compassionate and makes you feel as if your are his only patient! Thank you again for the wonderful experience Dr. Kays and Kari!!
