Dr. Deborah Pan: Patient Testimonials
Dr. Pan is amazing!!! The care and services provided at Esana are the great. The entire staff are very professional and courteous at both the New Haven and Guilford locations. I can’t sing the praises of Dr Pan enough she listens to your concerns and requests and provides the best individualized care for each patient. Truly the best. ❤❤❤❤
Dr. Pan and her staff are wonderful!! She was the most welcoming doctor I’ve ever met!!! I was extremely nervous going into my breast augmentation procedure, but she told me exactly what she was going to do and listened to exactly what I wanted! I am beyond thrilled with my results, they look supernatural and beautiful – I’ve received so many compliments and the recovery process was very smooth! I can’t recommend this place enough!!! Thank you, Dr. Pan and the entire Esana staff!
I finally decided to have boobs : ) always wanted them, but was scared of: 1. Surgery, 2. Possible Side effects, 3. Complications.
But… I decided to take the risk. I’ve had two kids, breastfed them both total of 3,5 years (but I was always flat chested)
My height 5’2″
Breast size 30/32 AA – A
Breast width: 11,5-12
I’m choosing mentor moderate profile plus 225 or 250cc will make final decision of the day of surgery which is tomorrow!
I chose Dr Deborah Pan. She’s amazing, warm, easygoing, knowledgeable. I felt like I could talk to her about everything. She introduced me to subfascial breast argumentation, I did my research on it (read medical journals, not a lot of doctors in the US perform them) and it is the best way to go for someone like me- personal trainer, who loves active lifestyle and weight lifting.

I was so nervous!!! But an entire team was amazing. Everyone put me at ease. I told dr Pan to pick size on the operating table either 225c or 250cc whatever will look best and most natural on me 🙂
She did 225cc!!! I literally just got back home 🙂 I will see them for the first time in two days. Post op is on Thursday

Feeling great. Resting. Dr Pan did subfascial augmentation. Which means I’m not in crazy amount of pain. I’m only taking Tylenol for pain managment. The most challenging thing is sleeping on my back 🙂

Bandages are off. Feeling so much better! 225cc everything looks good

This is what they look like when I’m flexing my chest muscles (under fascia placement) and how firm they still are at week 3. But they are getting softer every single day and I feel the difference.

I’m really happy with my results. They feel comfy, soft, I like the way they look. I’m working out a little, stretching my chest muscles daily. I love my progress
Dr. Pan is kind and nonjudgmental. She did an amazing job on my surgery. I am so pleased with the results.
My surgical experience was great, and I think Dr. Pan did a really good work. To be clear my recommendation is NOT a complaint but a suggestion.
I saw Dr. Pan in her office once and it was 5 months prior to my surgery. I’m very surprised leading up to the surgery there was no other conversations with Dr. Pan or the nurses. However, they did contact me for my lab works. Most information I received was on YouTube because I did not feel I had enough details on my surgery. There definitely should have been a meeting with Dr. Pan leading up to the surgery or her nurses.
In any case, I have no complaints about the staff, my encounter with them were always pleasant, especially after my surgery. Dr. Pan is a very talented surgeon. I think it’s the patient’s responsibility to be informed, but the office could have been a bit more involved in that educational process. I am extremely happy with my results. I would highly recommend them.
I have hereditary dark circles under my eyes, but as I’ve gotten older, they’re getting much more pronounced. I haven’t always had the hollows, but they’ve seemed to come with aging too. I’ve had doctors assume I had allergies (which can cause dark circles), kids ask why it’s so dark under my eyes, people think I’m tired… all of it. After looking up dermal fillers on Real Self, it seemed worth a shot!
Dr. Pan made me feel very comfortable from start to finish her skills are amazing. I am so happy with my results. I highly recommend Esana Spa to all.
After completing a great deal of research, I chose Dr. Deborah Pan at Esana Plastic Surgery Center to perform brachioplasty and reduction mammapasty surgery. Dr. Pan came highly recommended by several residents and surgical friends. Breast reduction was a surgery I had contemplated having done for 20 years. My only regret was not doing it sooner. Dr. Pan was amazing from the time of my initial consult (which was done virtually during Covid) to my final post-surgical appointment. Dr. Pan is absolutely lovely. She always made me feel comfortable during our visits. Her knowledge, expertise and patient care are unsurpassed. I could not recommend a more skilled physician with the utmost attention to detail. Thank You Dr. Pan!
