Coastal Cosmetic Center’s Testimonials

Dear Future Patients of Coastal Cosmetic Center,

I would like to take a moment to share my experience with the amazing staff at Coastal Cosmetic Center. From January through September 2009, I worked very closely with the team to have several procedures following massive weight loss. During this time I had five major surgeries for excess skin removal, liposuction and body recontouring covering the entire body from arms to calves.

I’m sure it goes without saying that undertaking such an extensive physical transformation presents both enthusiasm and concern. Understanding this, the team gave a considerable amount of time and attention consulting with me to fully understand my priorities and desires, and to ensure that I was completely comfortable with and knowledgeable of the recommended procedures. I found them to be very open, honest and realistic about the anticipated results, as well as what to expect during recovery.

My results and recovery have been consistent with the expectations set for me during our many consultations. While it is still early to see the full effects of my surgeries, my overall physical transformation and results have been incredible. As pleased as I am with the results, I am even more impressed with the care and attention from this fantastic team.

The care received from the Coastal team during the surgeries and follow-up has far exceeded my expectations. The entire team has been tremendously compassionate and understanding throughout this process, making time to answer my endless questions and willingly scheduling appointments to meet with me any time I felt it necessary. I have truly felt like a member of the “Coastal family”, and that they have my best interests and overall health as their foremost concern.

While there may be other surgeons who can perform similar types of procedures, I truly believe the care given by the Coastal staff is unmatched. Individually and collectively, this team goes above and beyond what is required to ensure their patients receive supreme care and attention. It is apparent they take pride in their work and in helping their patients achieve their desired results.

I have been privileged to partner with the Coastal team for my cosmetic surgery needs. I am very thankful for the care I have received, and wanted to share my positive experience with others who may be considering this team for their own needs.

Best Regards,
Adrienne G.

Dr. Fee’s Testimonials

I am currently healing from surgery at the skilled and tender hands of the incomparable Dr. Timothy Fee. He has been extremely professional and yet I found his conversations warm as he spoke in relatable terms I could understand. He never discounted my concerns or anxieties- he honored and recognized them and followed with certitude and grace. The canvas I provided him was flawed yet with his time, talent and artistry he created a beautiful masterpiece. I am proud to recommend him and would encourage those gathering info to just sit before him. You will want to endorse him too! His staff parallels his excellence. They were especially warm and attentive. I made The Best decision in my selection of Dr. Timothy E. Fee and Coastal Cosmetics.

“Dr. Fee is knowledgeable, caring, thorough, professional and patient. I also highly recommend the On-Q pain pump. It was wonderful! I was up and moving the same day of my tummy tuck surgery.”

- Tekecia

I found my plastic surgeon on Implant Info by Nicole! Dr Fee is a wonderful doctor. I never felt rushed in his office. He did a terrific job on my plastic surgery and will use him again in the future if I need any work done. His staff is also top notch!

- Trish

I found Dr. Fee on Implant Info by Nicole and recently had a breast augmentation. Dr. Fee and his staff are top notch all the way. Very honest, caring, kind and a lot more. I couldn’t say enough.

- Amy W.

After the first time liposuction was performed the feeling was painful. I could not move at all and the recovery was much longer. This time, with the Vaser, the results were not only better but I truly felt that nothing major was performed. Plus, I was up and moving around in 24 hours. Vaser is amazing!

- Robert P.

Dr. Fee changed my life. I no longer cry when I look in the mirror – now I smile. This is how life should be.

- Thank you! V.Z

Dr. Wallace’s Testimonials

Hi Dr. Wallace,

It’s been 7 months since my tummy tuck, and I’m still thrilled with the results! I just thought you would like to know that I’ve had 2 different people tell me my belly looks like a high school cheerleaders stomach! I guess because it looks so flat and toned……(and I’m gonna be 40 next month ) Yay!

Thanks again Dr. Wallace = ))

Dr. Wallace,
Words can’t explain how grateful I am. I was very pleased with your personality and professionalism. I felt very comfortable and am very pleased with my results. When I tried working out and running people yelled nasty things out the window about my weight which is when I knew I wanted to consider plastic surgery. Your surgery helped me to fill an insecurity I had about my body. I can’t thank you enough and want to let you know you have helped change my life. Thank you so much and God Bless.


- A.M. (abdominoplasty)

Dr. Wallace,

Now that my surgery and healing are complete I want to sincerely thank you. I appreciate the time and effort you put into my care. I am so happy and grateful for my breast reduction surgery! Now that my neck and shoulders are pain free I see new horizons and rainbows in my future. If you ever wonder about or doubt doing what you do, DON’T. You are right where you belong and people need doctors like you!

I know you must receive many letters of thanks and accolades. I am so thankful for your knowledge and ability. I appreciate your thoroughness and concern. You and your staff were kind and thoughtful and caring. At the hospital they were patient and answered all my questions.

When I first went to Dr. C for a hysterectomy I had no idea how much of a change I would endure. I am so happy. You have no idea how wonderful I feel. I have more confidence. I can buy clothes I could not ever wear before. I even buy belts now!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Dr. Wallace. You are a tremendous physician and a wonderful person.
Best regards,

- J.R. (body contouring after removal of 120# ovarian tumor)

I would like to just say that my service from the entire staff including Dr. Wallace was excellent. From the time I scheduled my consult visit and from the time I completed my scheduled procedure, I was treated with such great service. Dr. Wallace explained everything so well during my consult that I left with no questions to ask him. Once my procedure was underway, he then took his time to walk me through everything that was going to happen from beginning to end. The staff took great care of me and I am grateful to have selected the Costal Cosmetic center for my procedure. I am pleased with my results and could not have asked/wished/prayed for a better outcome.

Dr. Basile’s Testimonials

I can’t thank Dr. Basile enough for his amazing work. He was incredibly patient centered and he took the time to explain the process, the recovery and the realities of the surgeries. After having twins I never thought I would be able to enjoy a bikini again but after a six week recovery my body was refreshed, the scars were skillfully hidden, and my self-confidence was back. I have and will continue to highly recommend Dr. Basile to all that I meet.

- J.B. (breast augmentation and tummy tuck)

I am extremely happy with the results of my surgery performed by Dr Basile. He is extremely skilled and knowledgeable as well as being very personable. I don’t have any reservations in recommending Dr. Basile, I know you will be pleased to have him as your surgeon also.

- M.R. (breast augmentation)

Dear Dr. Basile, I want to let you know that I am most grateful for your pre and post-operative care and moreover, feel very blessed to have had you and your team perform the plastic surgery that achieved such remarkable results. I’m told I look 10+ years younger than I am. It’s wow!

Your professional, technical and special skill in bringing the best aesthetic results has enhanced my level of self-confidence and transformed my approach to my interpersonal and professional business relationships. I do not have all the words to fully express my feelings of humble appreciation and gratitude for this wonderful transformation – you have a special gift.

I wish you continued success as you transition into your new practice. I am sure your future patients will enjoy the same results.

To Whom It May Concern,

I would like to recommend Dr. Patrick Basile to anyone looking for an excellent plastic surgeon.
I’ve been a nurse and nurse practitioner for many years. I’ve met and worked with a lot of surgeons. I’ve experienced many with terrible ‘bedside manners’ and those who are terrible at communicating with their patients. I’m pleased to say that Dr. Basile is extraordinary in his communication skills and he’s extremely compassionate!

Last year, Dec 2013, Dr. Basile performed my facelift and bilateral eye lid lift. He also removed a ring of fat from my neck. Over the last three years, I had lost a total of about 60 pounds. That, coupled with being almost 60 years old, had created a lot of lose skin on my face and neck. I also had an annoying ring of fat on my neck that caused me to be self-conscious and I avoided wearing necklaces that might draw more attention to my neck.

Dr. Patrick Basile was recommended to me by another surgeon (she had done surgery on my deviated septum months earlier). When I asked her about doing a facelift for me, she said she could do a basic facelift for me, but she felt the issue of the neck fat was out of her realm. She believed Dr. Basile would do a great job for me.

When I met Dr. Basile, I was immediately put at ease by his gentle demeanor. He was not only kind and compassionate, but he was extremely knowledgeable. He took time with me. He actually sat down and listened to all my concerns. After examining my face, he explained what he could do to help me. One of my biggest concerns was that I NOT look like I’d had a facelift! Over the years, I’d seen several women with BAD facelifts – facial skin looking taut, and eyes looking pulled back. I told Dr. Basile “I don’t want to look like I’ve had a facelift.” He assured me that he would do a great job.

I saw him again a few weeks later, and he answered even more questions. At that point, I said “Let’s schedule it! I want you to do my surgery.” On the day of my surgery, I felt totally confident. All went well! Two days after the surgery, when Dr. Basile removed the first bandages, even though I was bruised, I immediately saw an improvement in my jawline! I was absolutely thrilled!

Now, 7 months later, each time I look in the mirror I can’t help but smile. I feel so happy to have a great jawline, bright eyes, and a normal neck!!! Friends keep telling me “you look great!” They say “I love your new hair style” or “Wow, you sure have lost a lot of weight!” I haven’t told them about the surgery. ;-)

I’m thrilled that I do not look like someone who’s had a bad facelift with taut tight pulled skin. I definitely look younger and healthier! Now I proudly wear necklaces since I’m happy to show off my beautiful neck!

I recently saw the first surgeon, for f/u on my nose. She told me she thought my facelift, eye lifts and neck fat removal look great! She asked me if I’d do it again. I said “Absolutely!” She was a bit surprised and told me that most patients would not do it again. (Those must not have been Dr. Basile’s patients.)

Thank you, Dr. Basile, for doing such an excellent job!!

- W. W. N. (facelift and blepharoplasty)

Being diagnosed with breast cancer at age 41 turned my life and body into something completely unrecognizable to my own eyes. I was fortunate enough to meet Dr. Basile within a week of being diagnosed. I was about to undergo a mastectomy of my left breast and would need reconstructive surgery. Dr. Basile educated me as to my options, answered every question and made me feel at ease. We made a plan for my reconstructive surgery, it was a team effort not just someone telling me this is what I am going to do. The results of my surgery were amazing, more than I expected, more than I dreamt it could be. After having a mastectomy and being bald from chemo I was not feeling much like a woman but for the first time in months I felt whole again and looked “normal”. I am forever grateful to Dr. Basile as he not only transformed my body by being such a skilled surgeon, but he helped restore my well- being with encouragement and care.

- R.S. (breast reconstruction)

Dr. Basile is by far one of the best surgeons I have ever met. My reconstruction process went flawlessly thanks to him. None of my concerns were too small for him to address. On the day of my surgery I was at peace knowing I was in his hands.
