He takes a highly curated, personal approach, unlike most other surgeons, who may leave patients feeling rushed, unheard, and uncomfortable. The practice is inclusive and welcomes patients from all backgrounds and walks of life. He works closely with vivacious moms ready to feel pleased with their bodies by restoring breasts and body after pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. Dr. Sands' trans patients love him for his empathy and expertise as they go through the journey of their transition. And for those patients who have accomplished massive weight loss, he is there cheering them on to be their new best versions of themselves. No matter the background or goal, Dr. Sands treats every patient with digity, respect and care. 

This has been an amazing experience overall. I am extremely happy with how everything has been done. From the first meeting until now, I have been blown away. When I first started reading about getting a breast reduction, I was so nervous. I had so many different ideas of how the procedure would be done, the healing and recovery process and scars. Scars were my biggest concern. Dr. Sands and his staff put my mind at extreme ease at our first introduction. After surgery I thought I would be in a lot of pain, but to my surprise, it was actually a walk in the park. As far as recovery it has been such an easy process. And best of all...I have no scars!
