It’s only been 5 days since my surgery and WOW the results. Dr Gupta is excellent . Even the girls who assisted him made me very comfortable and relaxed. I would recommend Dr Gupta to all I know that would benefit from his expertise.
Dr. Gupta is the best! His staff is awesome too! They are always cheerful & take the time to answer your questions.
I was refer to Dr Gupta by a good friend of mine and I am so glad that she refer me to him. Dr Gupta is a very talented surgeon. I recently had my surgery done by him and I am so HAPPY with my result! I would highly recommend him.
Kelly, San Diego
I would highly recommend Dr. Gupta to a friend or colleague. I had breast cancer last year with a double mastectomy. When I saw Dr. Gupta a couple of months after my mastectomy, he was very professional and recommended that I wait until I am further healed and feel more comfortable for reconstruction surgery to be done. I sincerely respect Dr. Gupta for his honesty and caring for his patients. Dr. Gupta is honest, sincere, precise.

Dr Gupta and his staff are always patient and answer all the questions you may have. I highly recommend Dr Gupta to anyone looking for a great doctor.
To the future patients of Dr. Gupta and his AMAZING staff,
I am a nurse and I am very particular about patient care and result. I deeply researched and then met with multiple surgeons before meeting Dr. Gupta and his staff. I was immediately impressed with how comfortable I felt with Dr. Gupta and his staff. The environment was therapeutic and Dr. Guptas bedside manner was impeccable. When Dr. Gupta entered the room, his smile was bright and authentic, I immediately felt comfortable and at ease. We then discussed what I was coming in for and the reasons for the request of my surgery. I spoke with him about previous appointments that I had with other doctors and my concerns of their notes. Dr. Gupta understood my concerns and went over what he had planned for me. He also laid a lot of my concerns to rest and worked with me on what I wanted. He had also recommended another procure that would not be covered by insurance but that he feels makes a difference after the surgery and told me why. He never once made me feel pressured to adding it in but with his experience and explanation about why he wanted to do it, I agree to it right away. Dr. Gupta went over everything I needed to know and his staff worked with me on scheduling and insurance concerns on multiple different occasions.
On the day of my surgery I went into the Rancho Bernardo Surgery Center and was welcomed with friendly faces. They went over what to expect and how recovery will go. Dr. Gupta came in and spoke with me before my surgery and went over size and marked me for surgery. I never once felt uncomfortable and even though I was nervous, he eased my concerns with reassuring words. Then I meet my anesthesiologist Dr. Zhang before going back. We spoke about different types of airways (what he puts in to keep you breathing) and he understood my concerns and agree to intubate me as I requested. The nurses were also amazing and allowed my father back with me after getting all the formalities out of the way. When I woke up, I saw Dr. Gupta for a moment before medications took effect again and when I awoke again Dr. Zhang was at my bedside monitoring me and making sure I was recovering well. After a few hours and few different medications I was able to be taken home.
It has been four weeks since my surgery and I feel amazing. I have been cleared to start working out and the outcome of what Dr. Gupta did is phenomenal. I am extremely happy with the outcome. I have seen Dr. Gupta three times since my surgery and each time he addresses any concerns I had and always had the same smile and warming demeanor. I cannot thank Dr. Gupta enough for helping change my life and still allowing me to feel beautiful. It is had to change something about your body, but his work allows me to still feel sexy and attractive while allowing me to preform daily activities without pain. To his wonderful staff who always made me feel welcomed and work with me every time I called, Thank you.

From the waiting area to the great receptionist to Dr Gupta it’s all good….had to patch up a hole in my head left from cancer surgery and I am very happy with the results!
Greggory, San Diego, CA
Briana, Kayla and of course Dr. Gupta, thank you for your special attention to me! Always positive with wonderful smiles and attentive care, I appreciate that you make me feel like I’m the only one in your care! See you soon, Karen
Karen, Bonsall, CA
Dr Gupta and his staff are the most professional and yet friendly organization that I have ever associated with. You never have to wait in the office, you are seen by Dr Gupta immediately, you are given a thorough explanation of what you are asking to have done and then you walk out knowing the total amount you will be required to spend. Everything is very nicely operated. This will be my second surgery with Dr Gupta and I couldn’t be in better hands.
Dear Dr. Gupta,
Thank you so much for making a lifetime dream into reality for me. You are an amazing surgeon and did an amazing job with my breast surgery. I am extremely happy with the results. I feel like a new person thanks to you.
Dear Dr. Gupta,
I have searched for months trying to find a Thank You card to express my appreciation to you to no avail. So I thank you and God for creating you and wish you and your family and all those dear to you a Merry Christmas and continued success in the future years to come. Most sincerely, forever grateful.
I had basal cell skin cancer on the end of my nose. I feel so blessed to meet a Doctor with such patience and honesty. He sent me to a great MOHs surgeon who was patient and took his time. The next morning I was scheduled for Dr. Gupta and reconstructive surgery. At 6:30 am I was dressed and ready to start with my wife by my side. Dr Gupta walks in to examine the wound and consult me on the procedure. He calmly examines my wound from the MOHs surgery. To our surprise he says I have two options for you. Have the surgery or follow my wound care instructions and your nose will heal by itself. I asked him what would he do? ” He said if I were you I would go home and start wearing that Band-aid and bacitracin 24 hours a day for the next month.” Thanks to Dr. Gupta’s honesty my nose is almost healed three months later without the plastic surgery. He has truly exceeded my expectations as a Doctor and a person I truly trust.

You won’t see better as a surgeon:
Dr. Gupta was my surgeon after investigating and almost going thru surgery with another general surgeon for hernia repair. When I realized with insurance benefits and willingness of Dr. Gupta and staff to accomdate a separate financial plan for me to combine cosmetic surgery (tummy tuck) with my need for mulitiple hernia repair plus coverage from my insurance I was thrilled. Dr. Gupta’s excellence as a plastic surgeon did not disappoint. Most of all his maticulousness gave me results my friends still keep commenting on how great I look, and they can not believe my confidence. Dr. Gupta was there thru everything, I had minor complications and he was there from beginning to end of my surgery, ensured that my pain was managed, that I was informed of every detail and best of all personally answers emails and calls me on my cell phone with any questions I might have. My before and after photos tell the story…after gastric bypass I had the droopy stomach and unbearable site. I do jazzercise for four years after gastric bypass….lost all my weight but not the sag. Dr. Gupta makes me look like a model. More importantly is his perfection and his true spirituality and care. You feel it the first time you meet him. I am glad I consulted two other doctors. Dr. Gupta exceeded my expectations.
I had seen about 4 plastic surgeons for consults in the past, always leaving with an uneasy feeling. Therefore, for 6 years, I wanted to get cosmetic surgery on an area of my body but never had the confidence in anyone to actually go through with it. Luckily, I met Dr. Gupta when I moved to California and knew after leaving his office from the consult that I was in good hands. He was comforting, professional, thorough, and really made me understand what was going to happen and how I would recover realistically.
I am so thrilled with the results from my surgery and the bedside manner of Dr. Gupta throughout my whole process. He was patient with all my questions, made sure I was comfortable the entire time and was excellent with follow up. I have referred many of my friends to him, which is the highest compliment I can give to him. If I ever decided to get anything else done in the future, he would be the person I would go to – no question.
Laura, San Diego
Dear Dr. Gupta,
I wanted to send you something to show you how much I appreciate what you have done for me. I hope you know how I grateful I am to you and your staff. You have changed my life. Please don’t change the way you practice medicine. It is so comforting to meet a surgeon who is so honest and caring and explains everything as well as you. I saw other surgeons before you, but none of them spent the time you did just talking to me and my husband about our options. Everything was really a blur after I got diagnosed with cancer, but you were a real shining light for me during my nightmare. Now I look and feel whole again thanks to you. May God bless you and your family.
Kathy, La Jolla
I’ve had large breasts since i was 11 years old .. Which obviously was creating some major back problems, and huge discomfort! It was always really hard to exercise and work out- due to the pain i would get – from all the weight on my shoulders… My primary Dr. referred me to Dr. Gupta for a breast reduction consultation. I had planned to consult with several plastic surgeons to see my options. But as soon as i met with Dr. Gupta, I knew i didn’t have to waste my time to see someone else! Aside from the very impressive photos/portfolio on his website he put my mind at ease. I was barely 20 years old when i had my surgery done, so you can imagine how nervous and worried i was. But i have to say, it was the best decision of my life! I am so happy with the results, and feel amazing! I was very satisfied with the care and catering from himself and his office staff. I will refer everyone to Dr. Gupta!
Dr. Gupta is an awesome surgeon. He has great staff, especially Paulette and Tanette. Very soothing bedside manner and he answered all my questions. Dr. Gupta did my tummy tuck and breast lift and it was the best surgery I have ever had. If you want to get plastic surgery, go see Dr. Gupta – he’s the best.
Dr. Gupta is one of the best plastic surgeons in San Diego. I had bad breast surgery by another surgeon who refused to listen to any of my complaints. I was referred to Dr. Gupta by a friend and was very impressed immediately. He put me at ease right away and answered all my questions. Excellent bedside manner. He fixed my breasts with one operation and now they look great. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Cindy, San Diego
Dr. Gupta is everything his reputation says he is. He has the BEST bedside manner of any doctor I have ever seen. He explains EVERYTHING to you about the surgery and answers EVERY question. He is so calm and relaxing from the very first consultation to every follow up appointment. His staff is wonderful. The office is beautiful, I love the waterfall in the reception lobby. My surgery went perfect and I healed great. I can barely even see the scars. Thanks Dr. Gupta, I’m definitely coming back to you for my next surgery.
Cynthia, Del Mar
Dr Gupta is amazing! He did my breast implants and tummy tuck. He took the time to explain everything to me. And then the operation was a huge success! I’ll never go to anyone else. Dr Gupta is the best.
Laura, Scripps Ranch
I had breast reduction from Dr. Gupta in Feb. 2007. I am so pleased with his bedside manner, his staff and the incredible job he did on my surgery. I would HIGHLY recommend him!!!
I had a breast reduction done by Dr Gupta two months ago and he did a perfect job. I have no more back pain and can actually see my feet again. My breasts look amazing. Thanks Dr Gupta for the awesome job you did.
Lisa, San Marcos
Dr. Gupta was the 2nd plastic surgeon that I consulted for my tummy tuck and breast lift/augmentation. I lost over 100 lbs., the old fashioned way and the 1st surgeon I met with treated me awful! He found out I was a long time smoker and saw the amount of skin from the weight loss that needed to be dealt with, and he just lost it! That Dr. made me feel horrible about my body. I finally went to see Dr. Gupta and was terrified I would get the same reaction. I did NOT!! Dr. Gupta was so wonderful and professional. He worked with me to help me quit smoking and assured me that we would have great results. I am 40 yrs old and a mother of 3 and I look fabulous!! Dr. Gupta is amazing! I need to give a huge compliment to his staff and especially the Encinitas Surgery Center! I was treated like a princess at every visit.
Went to three other surgeons before finding Dr. Gupta, and this is the most profesional office I have found. I am so excited, I had financial issues, and the office worked with me to find the necessary financing. Paulette and the staff are wonderful. Upon checking the website, I found that Dr. Gupta’s credentials were outstanding in surgery–both general and cosmetic. I am scheduled in January.
I had multiple abdomen hernias due to previous surgeries. I was supposed to have them fixed by a general surgeon during a laparoscopic procedure by my Ob-gyn. The doctor showed up but never did the surgery because he said the hernias – I think three or four – were too extensive to repair. After seeing three other plastic surgeons, I finally found Dr. Gupta—what a God Send. I looked at www.guptaplasticsurgery.com and knew I had finally found the right doctor. I was glad to see how well qualified he is for reconstructive surgery and hernia repair. He is the best. His team is fantastic. They did all the insurance paperwork and surgical bookings with the hospital and always kept me updated. Dr. Gupta did my surgery and now I feel great. No more hernias. Thanks Dr. Gupta and Paulette.
I absolutely love the results of my breast augmentation and liposuction. I was referred to Dr. Gupta’s ex-partner by a friend and consulted with him prior to Dr. Gupta. I wasn’t impressed at all with the other doctor. I felt like I was being rushed between patients and he didn’t spend enough time discussing the procedure. Not to mention his scheduler, she didn’t have a warm personality at all. I was amazed by the difference in Dr. Gupta’s bed-side manner, professionalism and honesty. I know I would have regretted having surgery with the other doctor , especially after reading his reviews on this same site. I’m extremely happy with my decision to have surgery with Dr. Gupta and would recommend him to any one.
Dr. Gupta is amazing – professional, caring, skilled considerate. Answers ALL of my questions and I never felt
rushed with them. Every physician in San Diego should take lessons from him.
Danielle, San Diego
I had a breast reduction by Dr. Gupta a few months ago. I was initially referred to a different plastic surgeon by my doctor. That surgeon was terrible. He was only interested in charging me a lot of money for a breast lift and liposuction. He told me insurance wouldn’t cover the procedure and that I had to pay for it myself. A friend told me about Dr. Gupta so I asked my doctor to refer me to him. Thank God I did. I can’t believe how nice Dr. Gupta is. He spent a lot of time with me to answer all my questions and he worked with me to get my insurance to cover the surgery. I didn’t have to pay anything extra. Now I have great looking breasts and almost invisible scars. Ask your doctor to refer you to Dr. Gupta – he is the BEST.
Mary, Del Mar
Dr. Gupta and the team he has behind him are the best! I feel fortunate to be a patient of Dr. Gupta. Due to breast cancer I have been going to Dr. Gupta since this past December. He and his staff help to make you comfortable and relaxed during a stressfull period. He is easy to get a hold of if necessary. Appointments pass quickly with little time in the waiting room.Dr. Gupta is excellent and always appears to look forward to seeing you as you look forward to seeing him and his nice smile.
Dr. Gupta is a wonderful doctor. He is compassionate, caring and extremely skilled. I have nothing but praise for Dr. Gupta. He has always been accessible and responsive to my needs. He has provided excellent care during my post breast cancer reconstruction. I highly recommend him as a surgeon.
Dr. Gupta is the best. He did my breast implants and liposuction a few months ago and I love my results. He always had a smile on his face and he always had the time to answer my questions. It was very comforting to know that if I ever needed to talk to him, he was always available on his cell phone, even at night. His office staff are really nice. I’m glad I found such a great plastic surgeon, and I’m not going to go anywhere else.
I was referred to Dr. Gupta by my dermatologist, to repair my nose following mohs surgery for skin cancer. Dr. Gupta rebuilt my nose, and I am very pleased and relieved with the result. I found Dr. Gupta to be very kind and capable, and he instilled confidence. From the initial consultation, through surgery and post-surgery checkups, he was always prompt, courteous, and most of all highly skilled and professional. I would highly recommend him.
Ellen, San Diego
Dr. Gupta did my breast reconstruction after my double mastectomy. He is a delightful person, with a professional manner which instills confidence. He provides a lengthy print-out explaining what would be involved and what to expect, etc., and is totally open to answering any and all questions. His staff, by the way, is super, knowledgeable, and helpful. AND, the results are fantastic. I couldn’t be more pleased with the reconstruction. I highly recommend Dr. Abhay Gupta.
I had a tummy tuck and breast implants done by Dr. Gupta and am super satisfied with my results. I wish I had gone a bit bigger but am happy with my new breast size. Staff was nice, talkative and welcoming. Dr. Gupta is approachable and has great bedside manner. I’m very thankful and I am a patient for life.
Lynne, San Diego
I was quite scared about getting breast reconstruction done, since having a mastectomy 11 yrs before. Dr. Gupta made me feel at ease and he was extremely caring and compassionate also. My husband and I had many questions to ask and Dr. Gupta answered them all in a way we could understand, and most importantly, he did not seem to be in a hurry. He was always pleasant to talk to and even when I had the injections to fill the expander, he would reassure me each time that all was going well. At nearly 60, this was very important to me. For the first part of the reconstruction surgery, Dr. Gupta actually wheeled me into the surgery area… what other doctor would do that?? Dr. Gupta’s staff was also the greatest, working around my busy schedule with the foster kids. I would refer anyone to Dr. Gupta. He is the BEST!
Dr. Gupta is an excellent doctor. He has always been attentive, responsive and supportive throughout my breast cancer reconstruction. He is available at all times to answer questions and is thorough in providing me with all the information I need to feel secure in my decisions. I highly recommend Dr. Gupta to anyone who would like a caring, kind and knowledgeable physician.
I am a nurse at a hospital in San Diego and I also work at a busy surgery center. Over the past few years I have worked with about 25 different plastic surgeons in the operating room. I have to say that Dr. Gupta is the best that I have ever seen in my career. His results are amazing and his hands are truly gifted. He is delightful to work with and is very kind to his patients and all of the staff in the operating room. We all look forward to the days when Dr. Gupta is coming to work in our operating room. When I decide to have plastic surgery, he is definitely the one I am going to.

Dr Gupta is a great doctor and surgeon. I had a LOT of sagging after breast feeding my three kids and I really needed a breast lift. I saw two other doctors before I finally met Dr Gupta. Those other two doctors didn’t want to spend any time with me to discuss my questions. They just said hello, examined my breasts and sent me to their office manager to collect payment. Dr Gupta was totally different. He explained EVERYTHING. He answered ALL of my questions. He made me feel so calm and reassured. My surgery was perfect. His staff are amazing. All my postop apointments were so wonderful. I love my results. Thanks Dr Gupta. I am sending all of my friends to Dr Gupta.

I was referred to Dr. Gupta for an evaluation for abdominal reconstructive surgery and cosmetic repair as a result of multiple surgeries resulting from a ruptured appendix, subsequent surgical procedures, and multiple hernias. I could not be happier with the result. Dr. Gupta is the consummate medical professional, obtaining the very best result from these procedures. He and his office staff always respected my time, and I was seen at the appointed time. I am not planning on any future procedures with Dr. Gupta, but recognize that future needs may occur, and I would call upon Dr. Gupta’ professional services as needed. I have the utmost faith in his expertise, and would offer any level of recommendation to others seeking his level of expertise.
Scott, San Diego
Dr. Gupta is the third plastic surgeon I have used in the San Diego area and I will NEVER look for another. He is caring, skilled, patient… He completed reconstructive breast surgery begun by another doctor earlier this year, as well as some abdominal work. He made really great recommendations for a small amount of additional work he felt would be beneficial, then gave me time to decide. Pre-op explanations were clear and relevant and my entire experience was positive from first visit to all post-ops had to date. My post-surgical pain was well maintained. My results are better than I could have imagined. His office staff is also great to work with. Unfortunately, I have been one of those patients who remembers “one more question” as soon as my appointment is over. They have been unfailingly pleasant and gotten me an answer within moments. Dr. Gupta himself has never hesitated to return to the office or the phone to answer my questions. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND DR GUPTA AND HIS STAFF.
Shirlee, San Marcos
I am very thankful that Dr. Gupta was part of my A-Team during my breast cancer ordeal. At 37, I was diagnosed this spring (2009) and meeting him during the initial consultation, I was assured of my original decision for initial reconstruction with a double mastectomy. He was consistently professional, understanding, accessible and gracious. My second reconstructive phase 2 months later went smoothly and I am quite happy with the results. And equally important, his calm, assuring approach was well-needed in an emotionally-fraught circumstance.
Ellen, San Diego
Dr. Gupta is a very kind, caring, patient and honest doctor. I absolutely love him and his staff. I was referred to him by a friend when I was looking to get a tummy tuck and breast lift. I was pretty nervous during my consultation, but Dr. Gupta made me feel really relaxed with his relaxed demeanor and incredible bedside manner. Dr. Gupta did my surgery a few weeks ago and everything went just like he said it would. It was especially reassuring to be able to reach him on his cell phone if I ever needed to (I didn’t). I healed great and my scars are already disappearing. Thanks Dr. Gupta. I’m telling all my friends about you.
Helen, San Diego
Dr. Gupta, since I met you, I have been on quite a journey. Of all the doctors that have cared for me, you have played the largest part. I liked you immediately. You put me at ease at the first visit. I think you are gifted in many ways. A skilled surgeon, an artist – recreating and giving back what was lost. But my favorite gift you have shared with me is your calm strength, quiet confidence and sense of humor. I am a person who struggles with anxiety with anything related to the medical field. It was your sense of calm and confidence that helped quiet my fears. My anxiety has never daunted you a second since the beginning. When I look back now I see it has been a long road. But I also see that I have grown and your role in my journey has helped me immensely. I thank God for you. I know He brought me to just the right doctor for this time in my life. Thank you for your excellent care. And God bless your journey.
Luanne, San Diego
After the damage that was done by having four children, including a set of twins, I finally decided to have an abdominoplasty in order to return to my pre-pregnancy condition. I could not be happier with the results. It has been a year, and I feel wonderful and even now, when I run into people I haven’t seen in a while, they are shocked and amazed. Thank You Dr. Gupta!
Dr. Gupta is extremely knowledgeable on the subject of plastic surgery. I saw him for repairs due to breast cancer treatment. He was kind, well versed and answered all of my questions. In many cases he answered the question before I even asked. He was understanding, patient and made my decision easy. He was honest about all the possible outcomes of my surgery, quickly returned calls during my recovery time as well. His staff is very helpful too. I would refer close friends and family to him!
Rose, San Diego
Referred to Dr. Gupta by my dermatologist to repair my nose from cancer surgery. I’m very happy with results and everyone thinks my nose looks great.
Dear Dr. Gupta, God bless you and your family. Thank you for your kindness and expertise during my surgeries and difficult reconstructions. You are wonderful and are my hero.
Dr. Gupta is an excellent doctor, I would recommend him to anyone and everyone! I am very happy with the results of my reconstructive surgery. During a very difficult time in my life, Dr. Gupta was always kind, compassionate, patient, and knowledgeable! He always took time to address any questions and/or concerns that I had. Thank you Dr. Gupta!
Dr. Gupta, I would just like to say thank you for all you have done for me. You have no idea the impact you have had with my life and future with my family. From the day I first met you, your positive attitude and concern had a great deal to do with my recovery. Because of you I quit smoking and after 40 years I never thought it would hapen. It’s been over 2 years now and I’m still happy to be a non-smoker. So thank you from the bottom of my heart. I wish you all the best. You are a terrific doctor. Keep that great smile! God bless you and your family.
LOVE Dr. Gupta and his staff! I will always be a loyal patient to Dr. Gupta! I have been to a big plastic surgery office in La Jolla and I didn’t feel any one on one attention while I was there. After going to Dr. Gupta’s my experience and my opinion of Plastic surgery offices has completely changed for the better! No other Doc has made me feel so comfortable and welcome. He is extremely professional and the office is so relaxing and beautiful!
Casey, San Diego
Dr. Abhay Gupta and his top-notch staff have my highest recommendation. Dr. Gupta removed cancerous basal cells on my face; the procedure required ten stitches and after two weeks people were making comments like: “You can’t even tell,” “He did an amazing job.” and “What is his name? I’m looking for a plastic surgeon.” My daughter, who always says it like it is, thought he did a phenomonal job. And, to show my confidence in him: I would refer her to him. Dr. Gupta’s educational background is excellent. (I always read the degrees hanging on the wall), and I am impressed that he supports causes like breast cancer by getting involved himself. Dr. Gupta is soft-spoken, calm and quietly self-confident; he instills confidence in his patients. He answers all questions and answers them directly; I appreciate that. I like his personality and “bedside manner” and his staff nicely complements his dry sense of humor with their compassionate, cheerful and outgoing personalities.
