Tim Sayed, MD, MBA, FACS ReviewsLEAVE REVIEW FOR BUSINESS
I first found Dr. Sayed through an online Breast Implant Illness network. He was one of just a few surgeons recommended for breast explant surgery, and I was so lucky that he had an office in my area (San Diego), as many plastic surgeons do not regularly perform explant surgeries. I had been suffering with horrible symptoms ranging from dizziness, rashes, severe breast pain and heart palpitations in the years after having breast implant surgery, and it was likely the implants were to blame.
From the start, Dr. Sayed and his staff were incredibly responsive and accommodating. His coordinator Christine got back to me within one day of requesting a consultation and I was able to be seen the next week. Dr. Sayed was attentive, and validated many of my concerns with my implants. He was very knowledgeable and gave me a very detailed explanation of my options for explant, and the pros/cons of each option. He walked me through each step of the surgery in detail, as well as what to expect in the post operative period. Never at any time did I feel pressured to make a hasty decision and I felt that I was given ample time to ask as many questions as needed to. Ultimately, I chose to do the implant removal with a breast lift, as well as a fat transfer to the breast. The fat transfer was done by using fat from my lower abdomen. I was pleased that this was an option as I was initially concerned about losing all of the volume of the breast after explant.
Now that I am fully healed, I can say that I am 100% happy with my results and I am so thankful to Dr. Sayed and his team. I no longer am suffering from anymore BII symptoms which is a huge relief and my breasts look great, if not better than they did with implants. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone else who is looking to get their implants removed!
I also wanted to mention that Dr. Sayed and his team have great post-operative care and follow-ups. I felt that they went the extra mile after I developed some keloid scarring on part of one of my breasts, and was able to get a series of Kennalog steroid injections to flatten and smooth the scars. Dr. Sayed and his team were also very accommodating when it came to my very busy/hectic work schedule, which was much appreciated!
After stumbling on the group on Facebook about breast implant illness, I definitely related to the symptoms that were listed. Having breast implants for over 14 years and just feeling terrible and I knew it was time for me to take them out. I did a lot of research and I knew I wanted a surgeon who knew what they were doing!! I found Dr. Sayed on the recommended list of doctors who knew about breast implant illness and how to do the removal surgery.
I met with Dr. Sayed at the beginning of this year at his La Jolla office. After spending about 1 1/2 - 2 hours with Dr. Sayed he answered all my questions and he gave me tons of information that I didn't even think to ask! I had a gut feeling that this is where I needed to be and he was the right surgeon for me! I put my deposit down that day and received my surgery date.
My surgery date was in late March and the day of my surgery I was nervous since my husband couldn't be there with me. As soon as I walked back, Dr. Sayed surgery center staff were truly amazing!! They all made me feel very comfortable!! Dr. Sayed was truly amazing too, he was very patient and kind with me before surgery!! I knew I was in great hands with him
My surgery went very well! Dr. Sayed did a follow up with me later that afternoon which was nice. He takes photos and videos during surgery which is amazing!! I had many follow ups in person with Dr. Sayed to check on my scars and healing! I am 8 months PO and feeling fantastic and healing great!!
If you're looking for a great surgeon who knows what he's doing and what he's talking about Dr. Sayed is your guy!! I highly recommend him!! Thank Dr. Sayed for everything and a long with your fabulous staff!!
I'm a 44 Y/O Male, and naturally I'm losing my hair. I had read that hair restoration technology had leapt and bounded (Neograft) and Dr. Tim Sayed is not only an exceptional surgeon - he's an artist. For those reasons alone, I elected a Neograft procedure with Dr. Sayed and my experience has been tremendous.
- The entire front room staff engaged me patiently (pardon the pun) extensively for weeks leading up to the procedure. Although the procedure is under local anesthetic and you're back to business within a matter of days (I took work calls during my procedure, not kidding), like you'd expect I wanted to align my expectations accordingly. The service leading up to the procedure was stellar.
- their La Jolla location (they are in Newport Beach too) is pristine. A beautiful plaza and the second you walk into their clinic, it felt more like I had arrived at a resort. The hospitality and sheer commitment to my comfort was palpable. Every single clinician followed COVID protocols for my sake (this procedure takes much of the day).
- I became best friends with the entire staff who waited on me hand-and-foot all day. You even get a lunch break and let me tell you - one of the best sandwiches I've ever had!
- you can watch countless YouTube clips on Neograft/Hair transplants (I recommend you book a consult with Dr. Tim Sayed) so I will tell you what I learned - it's all under local anesthetic so you're up the whole time and it might look invasive but you are just fine. They harvest the hair from what I call the Peter side of your head, and cultivate them like experts to feed the Paul side (in my case, I wanted to explore a more resolute hairline and fill in my waning temples).
- a hair transplant involves so many factors, but the one element that requires someone at the top of their trade is the COSMETIC angle. What kind of hairline would look natural and non-contrived? Dr. Tim Sayed was involved in the entire process (from design to bidding me farewell) and I'm very pleased.
- You get plenty of meds (anti-bio, pain for swelling, saline spray to help with the itchiness) for your post op care.
- Dr. Sayed's staff continue to check up on me and my welfare.
- Hair transplants take time to bear fruit (few months of growth and shedding), and research indicates that months 9-12 are where you see your bang for your follicles.
HEARTFELT APPEAL TO ALL:
- Life's too short. Get a touch up and trust Dr. Sayed with yours, like I did.
I was so impressed with the care I received from Dr. Sayed and his staff. I was 2 weeks off chemo and Dr Sayed worked closely with my oncologist to make sure I could safely undergo the surgery. The whole staff was beyond kind to me. I would highly recommend him.
I am currently 6 weeks post op from a breast augmentation and could not be happier! I am a transgender women and Dr. Sayed and his employees made me feel welcome through every step of the process. I was always greeted by name when I walked in and truly felt like I was cared for. Dr. Sayed was extremely knowledgeable and helped me understand the sizing of the implants and the process making it very understanding. I would 100% recommend him to anyone else.
I went to Dr Sayed after seeing him listed as one of the explant surgeons recommended on the Breast Implant Illness Facebook group. I was extremely nervous as I typically get panic attacks when dealing with surgeries etc but after meeting with Dr Sayed i instantly knew he was the right choice. He is so patient, understanding, and really helps walk you through everything so that you feel confident. I never felt rushed and the entire staff there is great. I am also extremely pleased with my results. I was worried after my explant I'd be insecure but I honestly think I look better then before. If you are considering getting an En Bloc Explant i would 100% recommend Dr Seyed.

Dr Sayed is truly the best in the business. I had my implants removed (that I had for over 30 years). He takes the time to really get you the optimal results. It was a big decision and every single step of the process he and his staff were amazing. I'm so happy with the results of the explant and lift. There is NO better plastic surgeon in San Diego. Thanks Dr Sayed and team!! You're amazing.
I went to Dr. Sayed for Enbloc breast implant removal, as he was highly recommended by the Breast Implant Illness Facebook group. I am thrilled with my results, and so grateful for him and his team. This is a much more complex surgery than implantation, and I wanted to go to a trusted surgeon. I'm so happy I did! I'm happily surprised by how aesthetically pleasing my results are given the surgery is not necessarily oriented towards that - I absolutely love the way I look now and I know it'll only continue to get better! Plus one of my implants was stuck to my ribs, and he carefully removed it along with the whole capsule. I'm so grateful that my body can now truly heal. From the consultation, to the pre-op, to the surgery, and follow up appointments, I've never had such a thorough and caring surgery experience. Dr. Sayed is very skilled at what he does, and also thoughtful and caring towards his patients. He is very responsive in answering all questions before and after surgery, so I was never worried. I felt prepared for my surgery and there were no surprises. The surgery center, nurse, and anesthesiologist were also wonderful. I was quite anxious going into surgery (of course), and they really took care of me and put me at ease. Even the operating room and bed were so comfortable and calming (they have an awesome system to keep your legs and body warm during surgery) - something I've never experienced. Another wonderful touch - The anesthesiologist called me the night before to answer questions and calm me down, and was available afterwards for questions and concerns. I couldn't have asked for a better experience! I highly recommend Dr. Sayed and staff!!
I can't thank Dr. Sayed and his staff enough for the amazing care I received! I felt like I was being treated like family and the results are perfect! He listened to what I was try to achieve and accomplished it! Thank you so much and I am happy to refer all that are interested and may even have additional work done as well! I couldn't imagine going to anyone other than him! I had breast augmentation replacing old implants and went larger. Next for a tummy tuck and I will be all set. Thank you again to Dr. Sayed and staff you made my dream come true.
I came to Dr Sayed for a gynecomastia surgery. I found that his demeanor was both relaxing and confident which is exactly what I was looking for in a surgeon. He was friendly which allowed me to be very comfortable and invited my questions and concerns that I had about my procedure, his staff emulated this and I was always greeted with a friendly face and honest happiness that I was there. The procedure went on without any issues at all, and the post-surgery care was exceptional, Dr Sayed and his team were there to answer any of my question no matter how small and in a very timely manner. I would recommend Dr Sayed and his team for any procedure in his field.
