I am originally from Southeast Texas, attended college in Houston, moved to the East Coast where I attended Harvard Medical School, met my wife, and then moved to Los Angeles where I completed a surgery and then plastic surgery residency at UCLA. I then began to practice plastic surgery in Encino and have never looked back! Although I attended top-rated schools and graduated with highest honors, I realize that my reputation is only as good as the result I achieve for the last patient I operated upon. I keep that fact in mind with every patient I treat. I make it a point to listen carefully to each patient's concerns and create a treatment plan that will try to achieve their goals in the simplest and most cost-effective way possible. Furthermore, I am not hesitant to discourage surgery if I do not think that it's the best option. Total honesty! After the patient has completely healed, I want them to say that the experience in my office exceeded their expectations in every way. I invite you, the reader, to be a part of that kind of experience!

"Dr. Sanders, Nurse Karen and Danielle are amazing! After speaking to a few top rated surgeons, I chose Dr. Sanders for my breast reduction. They take the time to thoroughly explain the procedure, and give you realistic expectations about the result. Even the anesthesiologist was amazing! I typically get sick, but not this time! If you have any concerns, they are very responsive and return calls quickly. I highly recommend Dr. Sanders and his team!"

"I am so happy with my procedure. I got a breast reduction with Dr. Sanders. Besides the fact that my results are fantastic, I no longer have back pain and can get back to working out. Dr. Sanders and Nurse Karen have the best bedside manner. The office staff is so nice. I would highly recommend."

"I did a lot of research before my procedure since I was a bit nervous but I seriously have to say that I had absolutely no discomfort, so needless to say I was extremely happy. If I knew this before I would have had this procedure much sooner. Dr Sanders is very soft spoken and makes you feel completely comfortable as well as the staff. Plus Nurse Karen is always a text away from answering all your concerns after the procedure"

"I am beyond thrilled with my experience with Dr Sanders and his staff. My results are even better than I had hoped. He has taken 15 years off of my face and neck, and yet I look completely natural. I am getting compliments right and left - both from people that know and people that do not know. Dr Sanders and Nurse Karen and the entire staff are wonderful and patient and considerate. They would always give me their full attention and I as much time as I needed for questions and concerns. Nurse Karen was always accessible and held my hand through the whole process. I felt ZERO pain with any of the procedures - which is shocking. I was sure I would feel pain at some point, but I never did. The most discomfort I ever had was a tension headache in week 2 from the brow lift but it was just like having a normal headache and was taken care of by some Tylenol. I cannot recommend Dr Sanders enough. His prices are reasonable, his work and aesthetic are superb and his staff is wonderful."

"I am very happy with my results. The whole process from the phone call to make the consultation to 3 month post surgery date has been so easy and 'painless.' Makes me want to do it again."

"Dr. Sanders performed a neck lift on me. Throughout every step of the process he and his office staff were informative, open to questions, and able to anticipate and address my questions and concerns."

"My results exceeded my expectations. From the consultation to the final follow up appointment, staff has been exceptional. Everyone is attentive to your needs and makes sure that you are comfortable cared for. I cannot recommend Dr. Sanders and Nurse Karen enough!"

"I had such a wonderful journey having my procedure with Dr.Sanders and his amazing staff! Dr.Sanders is very professional and extremely knowledgeable in the field of cosmetic surgery. He has such incredible bedside manners, he is so caring and takes his time explaining all of the steps and making sure that all your concerns and questions are answered. When you leave his office you feel comfortable about your decision and are very excited about your future procedure! I love my results!!! I look natural without having the ' you have had work done ' face. No one can tell that I have had a procedure on my face, they just say that I look so good and fresh! They say that I look younger! Lol! Dr. Sanders did exactly what I wanted and I am looking forward to my next procedure! Thank you!"

"I am extremely pleased with the results of my breast implant replacements. The old ones (over 30 years old) had become ill shaped and slightly leaky. I was a little nervous about doing the surgery again, but the staff was very professional and helpful. Any question I had was quickly answered. Dr. Sanders explained what he would do and helped me achieve the look I was going for, more natural, and his expertise completely put me at ease. Everyone I dealt with, from start to finish, made my experience wonderful."

"Dr. Sander and his staff are professional and friendly. This is my second time having a procedure done by Dr. Sanders and I have been endlessly pleased with the results of both procedures. Post-procedure care and follow-up appointments were easy to schedule and I always felt that my concerns or questions were addressed immediately. I would recommend Dr. Sanders and his staff. To anyone looking to have a cosmetic procedure."
