“I personally know what a leap of faith it can be to place your trust in a surgeon, and I am truly humbled when patients place that trust in me. I strive to use my education, experience, and passion to give my patients the results they have hoped for: to help you be your natural, confident and beautiful self.”
Dr. Hannan's Results:
I saw Dr. Hannan for a mastopexy and had the best experience from start to finish. She is an expert in this field and her attention to detail shows for it. She was transparent about what I could expect results wise and I truly feel like I was in the best hands possible. She has been super responsive during the recovery phase which isn't always the case for most doctors. I can not recommend her ENOUGH! I will be a patient for life. I am thrilled with my results and the recovery process was incredibly smooth. The procedure and her work have brought a new level of confidence to my life and that is truly priceless. If you are thinking about making a big change through a surgical procedure Dr. Hannan is the best to see. My only regret is not seeing her sooner! - Ana C.
Dr. Hannan and her surgical team are BEYOND AWESOME! Dr. Hannan, Amanda (my patient coordinator who dealt with all my changes and questions), Sheena, Sam, Sharonda, Anesthesiologist and even the male nurse (didn't get his name as I was coming out of surgery) made me feel comfortable, cared for and like I was family. I had PAH after a session of Cool Sculpting. Dr. Hannan fixed me right up and gave me my old self-confidence back. I've told several people about West End. Another thing that made me feel really good - Dr. Hannan gave me a big hug and a smile right before they put me under. She made sure I was okay afterwards and I believe she fixed my PAH issue. YAY!! Dr. H is so sweet and personable. Just who she is and It meant the world. Surgery can be scary, but I felt at ease with this team. West End does EVERYTHING. You can't go wrong. I traveled from NJ to DC to and my new saying is West End is the Best End. Check them out and no, I'm not being paid for this review. 🙂 - Rae B.
