I have been coming to Ageless in San Francisco for years and I have never had a bad experience. The prices for their treatments are some of the best in San Francisco, and they have a lot of specials.

The nurse Madalene (who does the injections and lasers) is the only person I let touch my face, her hands are like magic! No bruising or bleeding, I always get the result I want. I won't go any where else because she is so nice and takes time to consult with me, I feel like a friend not a patient.

I've read the other two reviews and just wanted to let others know that I have consistently been happy with this practice. His "girls" are awesome and I always come back to see them.

I would recommend this place to anyone who wants quality care at a great price.

Pros: best nurse, esthetician great, low costs

Cons: luzmagica

I have gone to Dr. Zingaro since way back when (the mid-1990's). He has performed some facial surgery on me, and I have gone to him for filler, Botox, laser treatments and facials. My sense is that over the years he has moved from performing plastic surgery to a more "Boutique" money-making model of providing Botox, Titan treatments and so forth that his "girls" can do, but he can make lots of profit on. I do not feel the same level of care and commitment that I felt years ago with his practice. When confronted with any problems, lack of satisfaction and so on, he and his staff seem very defensive and not particularly concerned with doing the "right" thing. I say this with regret, because I have gone to Dr. Z for so long, since I was in my early 30's, but I really have noticed a transformation in attitude. I still think he is a skilled surgeon, but maybe a little rusty since he seems to perform less surgery these days. I also have to say that their billing and account practices in the office seem to be pretty vague. The staff has trouble being clear about what costs what, and more disturbingly, when I did have surgery with Dr. Z, the surgery actually performed was not what I paid for, but a "partial" of what I paid for. I only discovered this a couple years later, and when I complained, they said they did not have the records available, didn't know exactly what happened, and so on. I don't feel entirely comfortable in this office because of all this, but I still go there for more minor things (facials, botox). I would not advise anyone to seek involved, major surgical procedures out of this office.

Pros: Quick appts available, some great services

Cons: Billing practices, taking responsibility for problems/errors

I underwent breast augmentation by Dr. Zingaro via T.U.B.A. The procedure uses the method of going through the belly button to produce a scar less breast augmentation procedure. What I was not aware of was his bad plastic surgery skills and unethical conduct which left me with lopsided breasts. I was also not aware of just how difficult it is for any skilled doctor to create symmetrical breast pockets from a tube inserted very far away through the belly button. Any mistake a doctor makes in creating a breast pocket is irreversible which will DEFINATELY require at least one but OFTEN MORE revisional surgeries adding to more money out of your pocket (At least another $8,000-19,000) depending on how complicated it is...AND because your saline impants need to come out to revise the pockets, that will require a regular incision. Saline implants cannot come out through the belly button. While all doctors I've seen will do a revision for free, meaning you only have to pay for hospital and anesthesia fees, NOT Dr. Zingaro. I THOUGHT that he would keep his word and revise the aweful, grotesque results of his breast augmentation on me but he refused to do it.

As a Model, I didn't want to go too large in breast size and opted to go from a natural B-cup to a C-cup. After the operation, about three months later, I noticed that one breast has dropped considerably than the other. In fact, my nipples were so far apart that it was obvious when I wore a top without a bra. The left nipple was a whole inch lower than the right one. I was so humiliated by the way I looked that it became too obvious. I had to stop my entire modeling career. I could not wear any tops that showed my cleavage because it was so obvious that my left breast and my right breasts looked different in size, shape and location. I went back to Dr. Zingaro and expressed my distress. I showed him what I was talking about and I was shocked that his response was that they looked fine and that he was not going to do anything about it. His Patient Coordinator agreed with him and added that I should wait because maybe the other breast will also drop to match the other. Then, he basically brushed me away.

Time passed, my breasts only changed to look worst. I tried for months to talk to Dr. Zingaro but not once did his Staff allow me to see him or talk to him. I was really frustrated. Instead, a woman from his insurance company contacted me and told me that she is my main point of contact from that on so that I would stop trying to contact Dr. Zingaro.

Since that time, I went to more than 20 more consultations with top plastic surgeons in California. I paid for another breast augmentation revision with another doctor since Dr. Zingaro refused to further help me in anyway. I did however get a call from the same woman from his insurance company telling me that I should stop contacting Dr. Zingaro and file a claim instead. If you don't know, if you file a claim with an insurance company about a bad breast job, you will loose because it is considered an elective surgery.

It is aweful and traumatizing experience that no one should go through. I would like to mention that during one of my consultations with a plastic surgeon in, another woman came in with an aweful breast results from Dr. Zingaro looking for a good plastic surgeon to revise her appearance. I was shocked to know I was not the only one and that she was not the only one that came to him with a similar traumatizing experience worst than mine.

I hope that by voicing my experience, patients would be encouraged to be very cautious.
