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!!

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 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 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 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 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.

Dr. Kay's did my breast augmentation about 2 months ago. He is the kindest, most trusting doctor I hve ever met. His whole staff made me feel so loved and beautiful. My self esteem was nonexistent before I met him, and now, he has brought the sparkle back in my eyes. I would highly recommend him and his team at Wilmington Plastic Surgery to every woman on the planet!!! He is the best around, and I will be forever grateful to him and his staff!!!

I would like to thank Dr. Kays and his nurse, Morgan, for being so very wonderful. Due to the complexity of my case, Dr. Kays referred me to a micro surgeon for reconstruction. While awaiting my big day, my breast cancer came back. As I was awaiting my surgical biopsy with my general surgeon at the NHRMC Atlantic Surgi Center, Dr. Kays and Morgan came by to visit me before surgery and checked on me during post op. This was very considerate being that I was not his patient for the day. He is so kind and caring and Morgan, who used to work with my general surgeon, has been with me since before my bi-lateral mastectomies. She is awesome. I think very highly of these two and recommend Dr. Kays to anyone who is considering plastic surgery. I don't think you will find a kinder doctor anywhere.
