“Exceptional” “Outstanding Results”
Every day is a “good face day”
It was a photo that was the last straw – I saw myself and winced, thinking that if I looked like that in a photo, others probably saw me that way, too. The search was on – I knew I needed some “rejuvenation” and started to research procedures and practices. I started with Fraxel and saw results immediately, but decided that my eyes and chin and neck needed something that would give me a bigger overall benefit. Having colleagues (physicians, nurses and medical device manufacturers) in dermatology and aesthetics was a help, but found some opinions that varied drastically. One doctor wanted to treat upper and lower eyes; another told me I was not a good candidate for lower lids, so my eye doctor referred me to an ocular plastic surgeon that was my tie-breaker – no to lower lid surgery. Along the way I asked my esthetician about all the “faces” she sees from Concord to Pleasanton and she recommended Dr. Stompro. My primary care physician also referred me, and others I met along the way who had positive experiences with his practice. When I saw him for my consult, he showed me what could be done from various perspectives and approaches from conservative to more detailed procedures. His concern, care, honesty and ability to be genuine and authentic with me was very comforting and my trust was already building after one visit. He had some very innovative solutions for my lower lids, and I did not feel pressured or rushed or like I was being “sold”. After comparing seven highly recommended plastic surgeons, I made a decision! My “gut” feeling about the level of trust and confidence combined with all the referrals really helped me decide.
My surgery was March 25th, 2010 – my lower lid area was treated with a chemical peel, upper eyes were surgically treated, a fat transfer added volume to my upper cheek/lower eye area and a mini-lift rid my neck and chin of the saggy baggy look. The pre and post-op care, level of support and care from the nurses and staff was amazing and the overall experience was truly exceptional.
The Results: I lost many years off my face and neck and the results are wonderful – and natural looking! The most surprising part of the experience is the level of confidence that I now have going into a new meeting and facing new clients. It has given me the ability to focus on the work, not worrying if I look too old or tired. I met with a CEO last week and he was so impressed with my level of experience but I wasn’t feeling like I looked “too old”. In today’s workplace for a woman aging it can be very difficult, but now I have the self-esteem and realization that I can do my job and be accepted for my abilities without judgment of appearance. I am so happy I can put my “best face forward”!
Thank you, Dr. Stompro!

I have been a patient of Dr. Stompro and his office for years! It is tough to know who the right Plastic Surgeon, Nurse and staff to trust with your skin, body or face. I was lucky enough to find this office and have always had excellent results and first class service! I have sent so many friends and family to them. All if whom had different needs with natural results and no complications! They do non invasive lasers and injectables in their Medical Spa. Dr. Stompro and Dr. Chang make miracles happen! They are so artistic and seem to know just what you need! I am a new mom in need of a Mommie makeover and I know just where I’m going to have it done! I would give this office and their staff a 100 star rating if it was possible!

In February 2003 I had gastric bypass surgery. I lost a total of 177 pounds and needless to say I had LOTS of excess and sagging skin. I asked around for a good plastic surgeon, I even went to a couple appts with other doctors but never felt comfortable and got the impression they did not want to be bothered. BUT, lucky for me, Dr. Stompro and his staff were there. My first meeting with him was wonderful. I had always been very ashamed and embarrassed about showing my body but when I met with him and showed him all I needed done, he made me feel very at ease and not uncomfortable at all. Decided that the first things I wanted to do was my bi-lateral tummy tuck and my sagging arms. That was done in October 2003 and yes I had to spend the night in their surgery center. I was treated with total respect and all the nurses were very attentive to my needs. I had heard so many horror stories about tummy tucks, being on pain meds for weeks, etc. I was off of them in less than a week and that night after surgery the nurses had to keep telling me to stoop and not stand up straight. That was how little pain I had. About 10 days later I got all the staples out, there were lots, but the nurses and staff were right there with me and made me as comfortable as possible while they were removing them.
The next month I had my breasts put back where they should be with implants. Really no bigger than I had been just where they were supposed to be. Again, absolutely no problems with that. The next March I had a full face lift with laser resurfacing. My only complaints with that had nothing to do with Dr. Stompro’s office, it had to do with the person I hired to help me at home. Once all that healed I took a break and the next March I had my upper legs done to remove as much excess skin as he could. It is not an easy surgery due to where they have to cut and to keep it as dry as you can. You don’t realize how much you use your legs for till they are stitched. Dr. Stompro, Dr. Cheng and all the girls were wonderful to me through all of it. I was made to feel like a queen every time I had my appts and their followup was amazing. They became and still are almost like my second family. They have always watched over me and taken me under their wing. I would recommend them to anyone and believe me I trust every one of them with my life, I truly do.
People have to remember, any MD can do plastic surgery, but you want to make sure they are credited, schooled and have actual degrees in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. These days you have every dermatologist and others saying they are plastic surgeons when they have actually never had the correct training to be a true professional in the area. Dr. Stompro and Dr. Cheng have and they deserve all the business and good wishes that can come their way. The staff goes WAY out of their way to help you out and make you feel comfortable and that we are treated as special as everyone should be expected to be treated when we are going through those kinds of procedures. If anyone who reads this is even thinking about having any kind of work done, you owe it to yourself to make an appt with Dr. Stompro’s office, I don’t think you will be disappointed.

I love Dr. Stompro. I have personally had liposuction, as well as, I brought my daughter (adult) to him for a breast augmentation. Both of our procedures had wonderful outcomes! I love Dr. Stompro, because you can tell that he truly cares about his patients. I appreciate that he listens to what you want to have done, as well as advises and makes recommendations based on his expertise. Although I live in the Sacramento area, when friends ask about getting work done, I encourage them to get a consultation from Dr, Stompro and that I totally trust him and would make the trip to get work done in Danville.

I just had the neck lipo surgery yesterday. Everything happened just as Dr. Stompro explained it would. Dr. Stompro and his staff are very professional and caring. They explained everything and took time to make sure I was very comfortable. Everyone was genuinely interested in me and my procedure concerns, comfort and nervousness. All of the staff is exceptional, but Dr. Stompro made the difference. I met his wife at his office, who is a down to earth lovely lady. Delighted they had been married for 24 years and they have 3 kids together. He makes time to coach at is daughter high school. I liked the way everyone got along and the communication was upbeat and polite. I am definitely going back for the other procedures I was planning. The whole office has a genuine love of their job and the patients that come in. Thank you Dr. Stompro and Staff!

Dr. Stompro performed an eyebrow lift, upper and lower eyelid surgery to reduce the drooping of age, liposuction to my neck and a full face TCA peel. The result? Absolute perfection!! I couldn’t be happier with my results. I thought about having this surgery for years, but was very apprehensive about surgery on my face. Dr. Stompro is a true artist. From start to finish I was very comfortable with my decision. He listened to my concerns, explained the procedure and recovery in great detail so I was completely prepared and calm when my surgery date arrived. At my pre-op appointment Morghan answered all of my NEW questions and even filled all my prescriptions so I didn’t need to make a trip to the pharmacy. Convenient!! During the prepping part of my surgery I remember Morghan rubbing my arm in such a comforting and loving way. Dr. Stompro called me that evening, the next day and the day after that to check on me! Needless to say, I had a wonderful experience. I look 10 years younger according to my husband and friends. My only regret is that I waited so long to do it!

Dr. Stompro performed a tummy tuck and liposuction and I couldn’t be happier with the results. Dr. Stompro and his staff were professional and caring. As a person who had never had any type of surgery, I was extremely nervous about the procedure. Dr. Stompro answered all my questions and walked me through the procedure so i would know exactly what would be happening and what I would be feeling. His professional and caring manner instantly put me at ease. The procedure went very well and I am very satisfied with the results. I would highly recommend Dr. Stompro and his staff if you are looking for the best in the biz!
-Shanta F. – Review
Dr. Stompro and staff are amazing! I’m extremely happy with my tummy tuck and liposuction results! Once I decided to undergo these procedures, I went to several recommended plastic surgeons for consultations. When I met with Dr. Stompro, I knew he would be the surgeon I would select to perform my surgeries. During my consultation, he addressed every issue I had regarding the procedures as well as the safety of the procedures, which was one of my main concerns. Dr. Stompro conducted himself in a very professional and knowledgeable manner. He was very patient and spent time explaining and answering my questions. After my procedures, Dr. Stompro and his staff provided me with excellent care. I am extremely happy with my results and have minimal lipo scarring! I strongly recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Stompro, if you are looking for one of the most professionally, skilled plastic surgeon and caring staff!

Everyone at Dr. Stompro’s office is fabulous. From the first office staff members I worked with, Lisa, Kristi, and Peggy to pre and post op with Morghan and of course Dr. Stompro, everyone is always so welcoming, informative, thorough, and helpful. The nurses and anesthesiologist at the surgery center were amazing as they worked overtime to make sure I was recovering well. Stacey’s thoughtful kindness was so appreciated in taking care of financial matters. Everyone went above and beyond with helping coordinate my care throughout my experience and I am confident that the whole team working with Dr. Stompro has my best interest in mind. Thank goodness I chose the surgeon I did. The whole practice is one I will be able to rely on for years to come.

Dr. Cheng performed my breast augmentation surgery for me in April. I decided to have him do the surgery on the recommendation of two of my friends. I met with him for my first consultation and was impressed with how he took the time to answer my questions. I went in thinking I would get saline but after speaking with Dr. Cheng about the differences between saline and silicone, I decided to go with silicone. He made me feel very comfortable. The day of the surgery was very relaxing and I didn’t feel nervous. Dr. Cheng’s surgery staff were very attentive and friendly. They kept me very comfortable after surgery. After surgery I did not have any complications. I only needed to take the pain medication for about about 3-4 days.
Of course I was sore for a week or so after surgery but I was surprised how quickly I was able to get back into my routine. I healed great and I love the outcome!!!
Dr. Cheng’s office staff is always very nice and professional. Dr. Cheng did a fabulous job and I would recommend him to anyone!
-Lisa Z. – Review
I couldn’t be happier with the service and the results I received from the procedure performed by Dr. Cheng. He is a true professional, as well as a very kind man. I never felt rushed. Dr. Cheng always takes time to sit and talk with me, and the excellent office staff accommodated my request for a last-minute appointment when my schedule changed. Parking is free and plentiful, and it’s nice to be able to also see him at their Hayward Office, which is closer to my home. The cost for the procedure is all inclusive for follow-up appointments, which is nice because insurance did not pay for this procedure. I would highly recommend Dr. Cheng to anyone and have recommended him to several of my friends.

I love Dr. Cheng. I was very afraid of plastic surgery but I walked into this place and everybody made me feel so comfortable. I went there for a chin implant and a eck liposuction. I was sooo happy with the results, and most important, with the recovery!!! I was off pain killers the second day. I went back for a full body liposuction, brazilian butt lift and the recovery was faster than I expected. I love my new body. He just has this taste for beauty! I love my new body and everybody asks me what I did. I fit on clothes I ever thought I would fit on. Eventually I came back for a boob job. I can proudly say that I was made in Danville. Ever since I got all these surgeries all I wear is small tops that show my belly, and low rise pants. The scars are minimal. For the liposuction and brazilian butt lift, he made a minimal number of incisions and did not leave scars really. For the breast augmentation, he made the incision in the under arm, and they feel and look sooo natural. For the chin implant, and neck lipo the incision is so tiny and in such a hidden place that nobody would ever know =) =). What else could I ask for? not much scars, beautiful recovery, and amazing results!! I would never consider getting plastic surgery with any other doctor and I strongly recommend it to anybody who wants to go under the knife. And he answers aaaalll your questions. I never felt rushed by him. His staff are as friendly and amazing as they can get =).
-Monica D. – Review
About 4 years ago I got saline implants with Dr Cheng. I am beyond ecstatic with my results. He took the time to listen and deliver exactly what I wad looking for. They look and feel natural. Since then I have been in to see Pam for juverderm and Botox and of course was happy with the results. When it comes to looking fabulous and getting quality service, this is the place to go. Staff is friendly and attentive, I wont go anywhere else.
