What Our Past Cosmetic Surgery Patients Have to Say


I can’t say enough good things about Eko Plastic Surgery. I had 2 lumpectomies within 3 years after breast cancer in 2011 with many problems due to radiation. It caused not only massive painful scar tissue to form but actually shrunk my breast from the original DD size to a size B at best. The difference in sizes was causing pain and nerve damage on the opposite side due to the weight difference, not to mention the feelings of insecurity due to the look. I was referred to Dr. Eko by the Cancer Center of Desert Regional Hospital in Palm Springs when I moved here in May of 2017 because of a new suspicion mass. After the biopsy, which was negative, I continued to be followed up and because of the continued pain, I was advised to have a complete mastectomy with immediate reconstruction. I met Dr. Eko later that year and had surgery in January of 2018. Since the first meeting, I found him to be one of the nicest, most professional doctors I’ve ever met. He immediately put my husband and me at ease. He explained every step in layman’s terms that my husband could understand. I am a retired nurse but still this is an area of little experience to me. He made me part of the process by never forcing his preferences, but offered me options. He never rushes a visit and makes me feel like I’m the most important patient he has. His surgical technique is superior and his goal is for complete satisfaction With as as little pain as possible. We are half way through the reconstrive process and I couldn’t be happier with the results so far. I’ve had to mentally face the facts that I’ll be smaller than before but the plan is to do a reduction on the opposite side and for the first time in 7 years I’ll at last be symmetrical. Not only is Dr. Eko an incredible doctor, his staff are so kind and accommodating. Eko Plastic Surgery deserves triple the 5 star rating.

I came to Dr. Eko after several failed breast reconstruction operations by three other plastic surgeons. I was in pain, my reconstruction results were horrid and I had been let down so many times it was hard for me to trust anyone. I am relieved and grateful to be able to say Dr. Eko has not only managed to redo my reconstruction, but he also fixed the problem causing me so much pain. I am still a work in progress, with a few more adjustments to be done, but I finally feel like there is hope. Dr. Eko’s surgical skills and his precise attention to detail are beyond this 5 star rating. He genuinely cares about his patients and I will always be grateful for the kindness and patience he has shown me.

Everyone was very professional and friendly. I am having reconstructive surgery after a double mastectomy. I had a lot of questions and concerns. Dr. Frederick discussed every thingng in detail and even showed me picture of what I can expect after surgery. He called my surgeon to consult with her about the surgery and the feasibility of doing a skin sparing mastectomy, which is what I had done 2 weeks ago. I couldn’t be happier with Dr.Frederick and the Eko staff.

Dr Eko and his staff are wonderful. I have seen several Plastic surgeons in the past, but feel that Dr Eko is one that goes above and beyond. Dr Eko’s surgical skills are amazing. He truly cares about his patients and their outcomes. He is caring, and communicates his ideas and concerns in a manner that is very thoughtful and knowledgeable. Dr Eko’s staff, while young and still growing, is professional, knowledgable, delightful and as concerned about their patients as their Physician is. They do their very best to help you in any way possible and it makes them shine. I would highly recommend Dr Eko for your Plastic Surgery needs, whether it be surgical or cosmetic.
Thank you Dr Eko and staff for all of your help.

I spent some time researching for a Plastic Surgeon in the area for a Breast Augmentation and a lift. Since, after breast feeding my two children, I became very insecure about the way my breast looked. Dr. Eko explained the procedure step by step and that instantly made me feel at ease. He is very Knowledgeable and has excellent bed side manners, he truly cares about his patients. I love my breast and i can’t wait to wear my new bikini this summer. Thank you Dr. Eko for returning my confidence.



I got Coolsculpting done about two months ago on my flanks and I’m so happy with my results! My waist definitely got smaller. Can’t wait to move forward with my abdomen. Liz was honest with me, on what I could treat and what I couldn’t treat with coolsculpting, which I appreciated. The consult was free, which was also a plus!

Dr. Eko suggested solutions to fine tune areas of a reconstruction I had after bilateral mastectomy with another doctor in LA. He listened to me, he gave me his input, we collaborated and planned my surgery. At the hospital, he again confirmed what we had discussed and skillfully put the plan into action. After surgery, he listened to me, we collaborated on a plan, and I will see him in six months so he can confirm I am still happy with the results. Excellent Doctor!

Dr Eko has a very gentle and professional demeanor combined with his detailed and precise explanation and execution. His skill set is not only of brilliant technical precision he also has the most calm and comforting way about him to put you at ease. I had the DIEP flap procedure and subsequent fat transfers. I had complete confidence in Dr Eko and was not disappointed. I highly recommend him

Josi Boelzner in Palm Desert, CA


After consulting several other doctors for a surgical procedure I choose Dr Eko for his knowledge and professionalism. I needed a doctor that not only was compassionate, yet patient in answering all of my questions. I found Dr Eko to be up to date in his skills and current procedures. For all of these reasons and more I would highly recommend Dr Eko.

Professional, highly knowledgable, kind and very detail oriented. Using all of the up to date procedures, my recovery went smoothly with limited Discomfort. Although I have one more procedure to go, I didn’t want to wait to let everyone know what a wonderfully gifted surgeon Dr. Eko is.
