Choosing to have plastic surgery is an important decision. We are dedicated to making this step, to a permanent lifestyle enhancement, a pleasant experience. Combined with Dr. Togba's artistry, our aim is to provide our patients with exceptional surgical care in achieving a realistically desired result. Further, our goal is to make the process rewarding, safe, and as comfortable as possible.
This site will introduce you to the services that are provided, however, the most effective way to have all of your questions answered is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Togba. At this time, you will be evaluated to determine the appropriate enhancement procedure specific to your needs. For clarity, Dr. Togba will explain each phase of your surgery. He will utilize an array of visuals consisting of "before" and "after" photos taken from prior patients having similar procedures. And, he will also use Photo Imaging to give you an idea of the desired effect that you are seeking. Dr. Togba has a very realistic approach in all his procedures and wants to help you make the most informed decision possible.
To allay any anxieties you may be experiencing, you will have an opportunity to ask questions or even consult with other patients who have already taken their first step to life enhancement. Our skilled staff and registered nurse, of twenty-three years, are also at your disposal to assist you in the process.
A majority of cosmetic procedures are performed on an out-patient basis. For those necessitating an overnight stay, our affiliates are The Surgery Center of Alta Bates Summit Medical Center and The San Leandro Surgery Center. For those patients, special arrangements are made by our staff. Most procedures, not requiring a general anesthetic, are performed in our state-of -the-art surgical suite featuring the most modern equipment available. Our surgical facility meets the uppermost standards and is AAAASF certified to ensure the highest level of safety. Our focus is on you, the patient. From the moment you enter our tastefully decorated offices you will be put at ease with the sound of soft music and beautiful panoramic mountain views. Melody Marigny, our patient counselor, will be on hand to guide you through many of the preliminary phases of the process.

The care and results I received from Dr. Togba and his staff were nothing less than amazing. I had a breast reduction and a tummy tuck. I have no more aches and pains from carrying large breasts around, and my breasts and tummy look fantastic! My recovery was very fast because of the great care and walking that was prescribed. Dr. Togba is an artist, a revered surgeon, a perfectionist and a kind, kind man. He listens carefully to your wishes and gives you a clear and honest picture of what your outcomes will be. Bonnie, Melody and Karen were also kind, positive and professional. I phoned the day my primary care physician referred me, and when I stated that I was calling about a breast reduction, Melody asked, â€œAre you excited?â€ And I was. I am even more excited and thrilled now, 6 months after my surgery. Bathing suit: here I come!! Dana S.
Dr. Togba has been doing what he does since before I was even born. Iâ€™m 28! I went in for a breast augmentation in 2006. 5 years later and Iâ€™m still a happy camper. People always compliment his work which tells me I look great! Great service, great work. Thanks for making me hot! Considering going in for rhinoplasty. Lou A.
Two weeks post-opâ€¦I continue to be very very happy with the wonderful job my surgeon Dr Togba did, and the great care that I recâ€™d all around. I canâ€™t believe how well I am healing, and how good I look. Dr T is responsive to my needs and questions, sees me regularly to check on my progress and returns phone calls within minutes (I hated to be â€œthat patientâ€ but did call on a Sunday when I was worried I was running out of pain meds). He is an artist, a scholar and a gentleman!Stay tuned for next update one month post-op! Leslie C.
