Mommy Makeover. San Francisco, CA

Well this was one of the best decsions of my life. I was super nervous about having surgery, especially one that would alter my appearance permantly. Dr Horton was amazing and answered ally husband and my questions before we even asked. Post op she even gave us her cell # to text her questions and even pictures when needed. It was like having a friend do my surgery! The best part. I look amazing. Just exactly how I wanted to and exactly how she and I had talked about me looking.

Removal of my "Funny Tummy" After Twins + One - San Francisco, CA

Dr. Horton and her staff are all wonderful and supportive. Dr. Horton even provides you with her cell number so you can reach her at any time with pre- or post-surgical questions or concerns. I've known other women who have had this procedure with other physicians and, although they've been mostly happy with the results, they were less than thrilled with the bedside care and support provided by the doctor. Dr. Horton is a true expert and artist who will shepherd you through the process is a caring and loving manner. The decision to have plastic surgery is an important one. Choosing the right doctor is key. In a word, Dr. Horton is amazing.
