When you see my picture, you'll know why. I am 5ft weight 110 lbs. When I came to the office, my skin was hanging over my C-section scar. All doctor did was just remove the skin. I still look like 5 month pregnant because of the bulging tummy. Plus, the areas that were supposed to be lipo'd on appear to be the same and no lipo entry wounds. The doctor gave me a very weak explanation of my gaining weight and loose skin due to my age,etc. NOne of these is true. I lost 2 lbs and I'm only 40 years old. I'm very disappointed with the way he handled this. Also, the only girl who I can talk to in his office, got fired or quit so no one in there really cares about me. The doctor even told me that I need another operation to correct the ugly belly button that he created and it would cost me another $ 3k. I'm willing to pay another doc $ 10k to correct it but am not trusting him any more.

I thought it would be awkward having to show someone my breasts.. Especially a male doctor. But my worries were put to rest immediately. Dr, Nguyen is very professional and informative. He was very attentive to my wants and helped walk me through the entire process and what to expect on the day of the procedure. He also answered every question I had and when I walked out of the consultation I felt more than prepared and informed. I couldn't be happier with my results!!!! I will definitely return to him when I need any type of procedure!

Dr. Nguyen was very calm and collected (which helped ease my apprehension a great deal) and helped me decide what size would fit best for my body (breast augmentation). Great team, overall. Price wise is about mid-range compare to all the local plastic surgeon.

After having a baby, my breasts looked like deflated balloons. Referred by a friend who's had good results, I consulted with Dr. Nguyen. He was very thorough in explaining the risks associated (this was my main area of concern) and options re implants. I decided to go with silicone implants. The results are better than I could have ever imagined. I now have full, natural-looking, natural-feeling perfect C cups. Best yet, The scars are non-visible! I couldn't be happier. My only regret is not doing it sooner!

I researched on Dr. Nguyen's bio and was impressed with his credentials (he taught at USC and does reconstructive surgeries for breast cancer and skin cancer patients). I was a little hesitant with some of the internet reviews that I came across but figured most people that are happy forget to spend the time to write reviews, besides, seeing the result on my friend, I decided to go with Dr. Nguyen. Almost a year later, I couldn't be happier with the result. The staff just called me to remind of the one year follow up appointment I have and I decided to let you guys know how greatful I am of Dr. Nguyen and his staff. It was a wonderful experience and I would recommend my friends and family in a heart beat. In fact, my aunt just had her tummy tuck done by Dr. Nguyen and she is as happy as I am about my breast :)
