Dr. Togba and his staff have been very pleasant, helpful, and easy to communicate with. Everything is explained well up front and there are no hidden costs or worries. Some surgeries can even be performed right out of his medical building to save large amounts on hospital fees! If you ask questions, they will be answered fully and truthfully by this very experienced surgeon. He has been in this business for over 25 years and he remains youthful and steady. So far, I've had 3 completely different surgeries performed by him and I've been happy with them all. I believe he is about the best you will find in this area, and I will continue to see him and refer others to him in the future. Thanks for your beautifying work!

There was a time when bigger was always better and that was certainly true with breast augmentation. It was not uncommon for patients to ask for implants that would make them significantly larger than a “D” cup even if the proportion did not match their physique. Going beyond the recommended range or size of implants could in fact cause the skin to stretch too soon as well as the appearance of unsightly visible blood vessels. In our consultations, I assist...
Q: How much fat can you add to each buttock? A: The answer to this popular question is 600cc – 1 liter. Think of a 1 liter bottle of Aquafina or soda. The concern of injecting more than 1 liter into each buttock is that the excess fat may not have enough of a blood supply to survive. Those that have great skin tone are likely to have the best results. Also, to bring out those curves, liposuction around the buttock area; to the waistline and upper...
