Breast Implant Revision

Surgery was easy and recovery was painless.Dr. Canales is wonderful. Results exceed expectations. Highly recommend.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Canales is the only plastic surgeon I will ever go to. Not only am I 100% satisfied with how I look and feel, but the surgery was like nothing and the recovery was a breeze & staff at Plastic Surgery Associates of Santa Rosa are very nice and helpful. Someone was always available to answer any questions or concerns I had, making the entire process itself as stress free as possible I knew I was in good hands. Since my breast augmentation I love the way I look in clothes & I feel so much better about myself. Thank you.

Breast Augmentation

The Plastic Surgery Associates practice was highly recommended to me by several friends. Dr. Candles was very helpful by listening & assisting me in making a decision, based on the aesthetic I wanted to achieve. Although I didn’t get to personally meet Dr. Furnas, I know she was also one of my surgeons, so my appreciation also extends to her. I could not be happier with my results; they are skilled professionals!

Breast Augmentation

The staff was amazing. I was thoroughly informed, and Dr. C did an amazing job.

Face Lift

Warm, caring bedside manner with surgical team, doctor, and nurses..Dr. Canales was concerned that I was able to get just what I wanted the most in his procedures, in fact verifying this just before going under for surgery. The follow up care is thoughtful, friendly and so very professional.

Breast Augmentation

Patient care from consultantation to post care. My breast lift, augmentation and liposuction look incredible. I would absolutely be a returning customer.

Tummy Tuck

After 5 kids it is hard to get your body back so that really help me.

Breast Augmentation

The results are exactly what I wanted them to be. The staff was amazing and answered any questions I had, and I had a ton. I always felt 100% comfortable and never pressured in anyway. I had a labiaplasty and breast aug. I do love my breast but I have to say that the labiaplasty changed my life! I feel more confident.

Treatment / Procedure

Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The pre and post op materials are excellent and helped me prepare for the surgery and know what to expect. Scheduling was easy as well.

Breast Augmentation

The level of care I received with Dr. Canales and all of his staff was unparalleled. Being in this industry myself, I am more in tune than most to what type of care is required for aesthetic medicine. Everyone was emotionally supportive and provided the most professional care that I could have asked for. This practice is a jewel and I will see them for all of my surgical experiences in the future. You can’t help but fall in love with everyone you meet there. My outcome was exactly what I wished for and I got the exact after effect that I was looking for.

Breast Augmentation

Everything about my experience with Dr. Canales and his staff was top notch. They listened to everything I asked and were extremely caring and professional. Wonderful experience! The single best thing were the amazing results! I believe this is because Dr. Canales truly listened to me and understood what I wanted to accomplish.

Breast Implant Revision

I had a revision of a breast aug done by another surgeon. I felt the previous surgeon recommended implants that were too wide for my body and left me with a big gap in between the implants. I told Dr Canales that I would like a narrower implant that sat a little higher up and a smaller gap in between if possible. He also recommended an implant that had more fullness on top, which was also important to me. I was extremely pleased with the entire process, it was so fluid and easy. Dr Canales is as pleasant and down to earth as he is skilled and talented. He listened to exactly what i wanted and made appropriate recommendations. All staff encountered throughout the process were very kind, helpful, and professional. My results are fabulous! I know I have high expectations, but the new implants are about as close to perfect as you can get. The recovery was a breeze, which was also unexpected. I cannot say enough great things about Dr Canales and the entire process! I've already had a friend have her surgery done by him based on my recommendations and she is just as thrilled.

Face Lift

Each and every person cares about you and your experiences and you feel it! It's very caring and reassuring. I was comfortable and felt safe the entire time.

Eyelid Surgery
