The Best Surgeon in Southern California! Newport Beach, CA

I am a 39 year old woman who used to hate my lower face. Through an unfortunate combination of genetics, I inherited my mother's cheeks and father's strong jawline.

I've been lurking for months, learning so much that I felt compelled to write my own story. Why facial work? A bad picture.
