I wanted to get my arms & breast... more
Well where should one start when they talk about an artist. To me Dr.Agha is an
artist in the plastic surgery world. He truly is one of a kind. His results
speak for themselves.
Dr.Agha made me feel so comfortable with him on our Skype session. We also
talked many times on the phone leading up to my surgery date. You can tell that
he knows what he is doing; plus his bed side manners are... more

I am 61 yrs. young; I've been reading TT reviews on this website for the last 2 yrs., trying to get my courage up to do this, even though I've wanted it for a decade. I kept hearing/reading about how horribly painful it is, all the things that can go wrong and all the hard times in recovery. I finally decided, the time is now, I'm not getting any younger!! So...I did my research, typed out... more

I'm doing tummy tuck with NO DRAINS, new... more
I used to drive the 91 a lot for work the past few years. I would always see Dr Chungs billboard. I would always tell myself " I need to add him to the list of surgeons to review once I'm ready to start planning. After researching a lot of surgeons in the area I finally decided to go with them. When I first called I spoke with Kimberly the patient coordinator. In the first phone call alone... more
I had a face lift and tummy tuck. I had lost 50 pounds and wanted my flat tummy back and my face looked old and sagging and I wanted it pulled up and tight along with my upper and lower eyes. I felt as if I look closer to 63 than 53 and simply wanted to look closer to my age. Now my husband says I look 20 years younger. I agree, I think Dr. Smaili took at least 10 years off my face. more
