Heather Furnas, MD Reviews (266)

Tummy Tuck

I was so impressed with the professionalism of staff, the graciousness and warmth of Dr. Furnas, and the overall results. The entire experience was wonderful. I am so happy with my results.

Vaginal Rejuvenation

Dr. Furness was so very professional, easy to talk to, and really put me at ease. The staff was thorough, kind, attentive, and prompt. Plus, I was able to do my pre-op at my consultation visit and was scheduled for surgery right away. Yay!

Face Lift

Professional and authentically nice people in this office. I met with a few other highly rated practices in Beverly Hills, San Francisco and Sacramento. They were all very polished and ultimately all recommended the exact procedures for the results I wanted. The surgeon in Sacramento personally recommended Dr Furness to me if I decided to have the surgery done in Santa Rosa which I ultimately did decide to do. She indicated that she was an truly excellent surgeon and I absolutely agree with her. Am very happy with the process and my results. People have noticed that my skin looks so great and even strangers have complimented me.

Breast Augmentation

This procedure has given me so much confidence and I’ve actually learned how to love myself. It was a life changing experience. My clothes fit so much better, and everyone in the office made me feel like family. My questions were always answered and I will be recommending potential patients to this office. . I am highly satisfied with my experience due to the staff and Dr. Furnas making me feel so comfortable and not embarrassed about my body before my breast augmentation. My life has completely changed since my surgery, you accommodated my needs and went above and beyond, and I couldn’t thank you more! I am extremely happy with my amazing results, it is such a great feeling to look at yourself in the mirror and not be disappointed in what you see or embarrassed and Dr. Furnas and staff changed that for me. I see myself now and have confidence and just love my body. Thank you so much for everything!

Rhinoplasty

Dr. Furnas was very confidence inspiring. This is undoubtedly influenced by her impeccable credentials.

Breast Augmentation

I came in after breastfeeding 2 babes missing the big fullness of breastfeeding boobs. When I walked in my boobs were deflated and saggy. I said I would love to have nice, big, natural looking boobs and that is EXACTLY what I received. I’m beyond happy! I literally feel like they have always been mine and the care I received from the entire staff was outstanding! I’m one very happy momma! Dr Furnas made this entire procedure feel as though it was so natural and easy! She is the absolute sweetest and made me feel very comfortable through the entire journey.

Breast Augmentation

I had more question of the surgeon and of the clinical coordinator. I was told to just trust the doctor who had given me 20 minutes time. I would need another appointment with the surgeon to get questions answered to feed satisfied. Her experience was reassuring, but the emphasis on how I will pay and signing arbitration forms as the first point of contact was off putting, as was the lack of time to get questions answered.

Breast Implant Removal

Dr. Furnas took on a procedure that another Plastic Surgeon (not affiliated with Plastic Surgeons Associates) could not complete. Not only was she available on short notice to correct this problem, but did it with a smile and, PERFECT outcome surgery. I felt extremely happy and satisfied with the over all experience. Dr. Furnas's whole team were definitely extremely professional and at the pinnacle of their specific jobs/profession. My surgery was completed with perfection as the outcome. I cannot thank Dr. Furnas and her team enough for making this experience so positive.

Eyelid Surgery

Professional service, excellent results.

Breast Reduction

I'm only 18 and the thought of doctors office, needles, and surgery frightens me. I was extremely nervous for my surgery (also excited) but I was always comforted and supported by the staff. On the day of my surgery, I was noticeably nervous and everyone was so kind and patient with me which I appreciated more than anything. While the anesthesiologist was putting in the needle, I began to stress out and panic. The staff immediately came over me and began to rub my arms and comfort me while I was anxious. They talked to me and allowed me to be distracted while I was facing my worst fear. Dr. Furnace was amazing and answered every question I had. I really went into the surgery with all my questions asked and knowing I was in good hands. I have already recommeneded Plastic Surgery Associates to many people and have talked about my positive experience to many. I am super satisfied with the surgery results and my overall experience! (:

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Furnas has wonderful beside manners and a gentle, caring heart. She and her staff are sincere and attentive. I was apprehensive to have this procedure, but am now beyond thrilled with the results. Reduction from 500cc to 295cc. I was concerned how my breasts would look by going smaller, if they would be saggy. I gave Dr. Furnas the go-ahead to make the decision during surgery between 275cc and 295cc. She made the right choice. I look natural!

Breast Reduction

The people there are very friendly, and most importantly, knowledgeable of the service I need. They made me feel very welcome and confident in my decision.

Breast Implant Removal

the staff is awesome. even though i decided to take my implants out, i would still absolutely recommend this practice to anyone. they are super professional, very caring, and great at what they do. the level of professionalism, safety and care.

Breast Augmentation

The people who work at Dr. Furnas office are OUTSTANDING! From receptionists, to nurses, to the consultation, to the payment... pre op and surgery... Everyone was incredible! I almost wish I wanted more cosmetic procedures just to visit the office again. I have already recommended several friends who were on the fence because they hadn't found a good match for a surgeon yet. I absolutely love Dr. Furnas!

Breast Reduction

Upon my first visit to Plastic Surgery Associates I was provided with all the info that I needed to make my decision about having breast reduction surgery. Dr. Furnas was very caring and patient answering any questions and concerns that I had. The pre-surgery booklet was extremely helpful in preparing me for what to expect as well as the post-op section. My surgery went very smoothly and I am very happy with the results. I would definitely recommend Dr. Furnas and Dr. Canales to anyone considering plastic surgery. I also use the Allegro Med Spa and am also very satisfied with their services. I was experiencing back and neck pain as well as deep strap marks on my shoulders. Since surgery I no longer have back and neck pain. Strap marks are not as deep or severe.

Breast Augmentation

I enjoyed talking to everyone that worked with me along the way from reception to the physician. Everyone was super friendly and knowledgeable . My surgery was on-time and everyone that I met with the morning of was very friendly and informative. I am beyond satisfied with the entire process from start to finish

Eyelid Surgery

Everything was well explained and organized. I always knew what to expect My eyes look great and I am getting so many compliments that I look so good but Most people don’t even know that I had the procedure

Breast Reduction

DR FURNAS IS A WARM AND CARING PHYSCIAN WHO IS EAGER TO HELP HER PATIENTS ACHIEVE THEIR GOALS AND AT THE SAME TIME INFORM US TO BE REALISTIC ABOUT THE RESULTS OF THE PROCEDURE. SHE MADE ME FEEL RELAXED AND AT EASE.
