We Love
Our Patients

“Dr. Melanie Aya-ay you inspire me. You gave me my femininity and self-esteem when I had none. You gave me courage when I felt weak. You are truly more than a Dr. I will forever be grateful to you. I will remember when I was lashing out and told you I had changed my mind about the mastectomy and having reconstruction. You gave me back my power by simply stating “Do what you want”. You gave me permission to choose with that choice I felt strength. Thank you will never be enough for you.”

After finding out, I had stage one breast cancer, and knowing that I had implants that I wanted removed the same year anyway, I was referred to go to Dr. Aya-Ay… from many friends, and also my oncologist surgeon, who spoke extremely highly of her professionalism and work that she does in plastic surgery. I couldn’t be more than ecstatic to leave this incredible review for her, because not only is she a top professional, and knowledgeable doctor, but as a person, she is loving and caring, and takes incredible pride in the results. One of the best in Tampa Bay!!
