Breast Reduction

Dr. Cabbabe was great and came highly recommended. He knows his practice and takes the time to answer any questions and made me feel comfortable. His staff is so nice, too.

Tummy Tuck

From the very first phone call to my final visit after surgery, every staff member was courteous and professional. Dr. Cababbe was exceptional at every level of care and I couldn't be happier with my surgical results. I will be a repeat patient and have very highly recommended him to others who are looking to have surgery done themselves. I have gained self confidence that I hadn't had for over twenty years. I am so grateful. My marriage also got quite a boost.

Breast Reconstruction

I had breast reconstruction after prophylactic bilateral mastectomies. I also chose to have liposuction of my thighs at the same time. I could not be happier with both procedures. My breasts are a perfect shape and size and look so much better than my real ones- this made a bad situation of needing the mastectomies turn out to be positive (both in saving my life and in providing an awesome cosmetic result!) Fat grafting was done from my arms, and I LOVE my new arms (total bonus!!!) I have hated my thighs my whole life, and for the first time ever, I like wearing jeans and being in a bathing suit. Thank you Dr. Samer Cabbabe, for saving my life and for giving me a new body that I love and am proud of! You are an amazing artist and surgeon! I have already referred my family members to him, and one aunt is scheduled for prophylactic bilateral mastectomies and reconstruction with him this year. He will be the doctor for our family from here on out. He is kind, thorough, and super smart and his surgical skills are outstanding. If you need a medical or cosmetic procedure, HE IS YOUR GUY.

Breast Reconstruction

Staff and Dr. C were GREAT. I do plan to have further cosmetic surgery performed by Dr. C.

Breast Reconstruction

Dr Cabbabe fully assessed my needs and explained thoroughly. My husband and I felt very comfortable the day of the surgery with Dr Cabbabe performing the surgery. He spent time with us before and after the surgery. I am very relieved and happy with my results.

Breast Reduction

I have never had a more pleasant experience for an operation than I had with Dr Cabbabe and his team! He is personable, down to earth and extremely good at what he does! If you are on the fence- do not pass up an opportunity to have him work on you. He is a blessing to the STL area and is talented beyond belief! I've never felt more comfortable in my own skin!

Breast Reconstruction

In going through cancer treatment and reconstruction, Dr Cabbabe's knowledge and bedside manner helped me to feel very comfortable. I took his recommendations, lead and knowledge to heart and let him lead me through this process. I would never want to go through this again, but am sure to send my new cancer friends his information. The treatment, pain, recovery, etc details was NOT sugar coated. Dr Cabbabe was honest and real about the feelings and procedures and I was prepared for what was to come.

Breast Implant Removal

Couldn’t be more please with my surgery results. Dr C. was the only doctor who listened to me. My implants ruptured 3 times before and none of these previous doctors would remove, only replace. I am finally myself again. I was not sure what I would look like after implants removed. Dr C. Gave me back small breasts. All the staff were professional and friendly. From start to finish I would recommend Dr C. and staff highly. Happy now. Thanks to all.

Breast Reconstruction

Everyone is very caring and always willing to listen and answer questions. I am also very happy with my results so far. I was scared to death to hear I had breast cancer at the age of 38 but they have been very supportive through everything and giving me the beat of the best. I am very thankful for all of it.

Breast Reconstruction

Dr. Cabbabe was very throrough on explaining everything that I would be going through and facing during the surgery and reconstruction. He was also very honest about my outcome and what I should expect. He always lets me know during each visit how I will feel, what to keep an eye on and never rushes thru my appointment. The entire staff are always friendly & smiling!


In August, Dr. Cabbabe performed a panniculectomy and liposuction. He and his staff are extremely knowledgeable, supportive, and great to work with. I had all my questions answered and felt at ease having the surgery done. Recovery was smooth with Dr. Cabbabe coming in to check on me and make sure I was alright and had no additional questions or concerns. Follow-up was a breeze. In fact, I am so very happy with Dr. Cabbabe's work that I am having a breast reduction, lift, and reverse tummy tuck done on December 18th. He is amazing and I can't wait to see the results of this upcoming surgery. I will definitely share pictures when I'm all healed.

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Cabbabe and his staff were kind, compassionate and talented health care professionals. My experience was excellent. Dr. Cabbabe has amazing bedside manner. He is kind and compassionate. I felt confident that I was being taken care of and my experience was terrific.

Cyst Removal

It was a really great experience because everyone was friendly efficient & enjoyable even though I was nervous about having the surgury. Nurses were really great & room was clean & calm.

Breast Reconstruction

Before I came to Dr. Cabbabe I had another surgeon who in my opinion botched me! Things were done that should not have been done and I am starting all over. Having a double Mastectomy and Breast Cancer is very emotional. Having to have my implants removed started the entire process all over for me and again has been very emotional! Dr. Cabbabe and his staff have taken the time to listen to me through my many tears and help me start the journey to feel whole again. I am excited for the next step in this journey with Dr. Cabbabe and his staff.

Breast Reconstruction

I have had a wonderful experience. I believe that Dr. Samer Cabbabe and his staff are amazing. The best thing is that he asks me questions and answers any questions i have.

Breast Reconstruction

I had prophylactic bilateral mastectomies with reconstruction. Dr. Samir Cabbabe is OUTSTANDING! He was genuinely concerned about my care and is an expert in breast reconstruction. He turned an unfortunate circumstance for me into a positive experience. Not only did this surgery potentially save my life, but my new breasts look natural and make me feel confident and proud of my decision. I could have gone back to work at week 2 after my mastectomies and I did go back 1 week after my reconstruction! Minimal pain, no complications. If you are looking for an excellent caring surgeon who is an expert in breast reconstruction (and other procedures), HE IS YOUR GUY! [Single best thing is...] The genuine care and concern, in addition to the technical expertise, of my surgeon (Dr. Samir Cabbabe)

Breast Reconstruction

[Single best thing is...] My breast are symmetrical looking under my clothes. . To try and make a previous procedure look better and to make the size of both breast look symmetrical was what I was hoping for. It is what I got.


Dr. Cabbabe was extremely nice and informative. He explained everything with great detail and in terms that I could understand. He made sure I was comfortable during and after the procedure. His entire staff made everything very comfortable and welcoming. I would definitely see Dr. Cabbabe if I have any future appointments needed for plastic surgery. Even the nurse practitioner that works along side Dr. Cabbabe is so knowledgeable and kind. She answered any and all questions that I had and helped me throughout the procedures of my hematoma/scarring. I appreciate the staff in Dr. Cabbabe’s office. Thank you all.

All were very friendly,professional,educational and very down to earth.Dr. Cabbabe has the most wonderful bedside manner, he actually cares about what is going on with you and speaks to you in layman's terms that you can understand.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

I never feel rushed. They take the time to talk to me and listen to all my questions and concerns. Dr. Cabbabe is also a perfectionist and I trust him completely. My result was awesome. Very natural looking, not fake or overdone.
