5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Life-changing Experience - Del Mar, CA

Going to Dr. Batra is by far the best thing I've ever done for myself! My entire life I had a huge indentation in my abdomen surrounded by loose skin; ever since childhood it has bothered me a great deal. Over the years others had talked me into multiple other procedures to address it and none of them fixed it; in some cases they made it worse. I was lucky enough to find Dr. Batra, and he...

Tummy Tuck After Two Kids - Del Mar, CA

I had my tummy tuck on April 25 and so far, it's been worth it. I've always had the "double tummy" even at my skinniest. It's hereditary! But, after having my two beautiful children (4 and 19 months) via c section, it just got worse. I work out 5-6 days a week and run about 30 miles each week along with Pilates and boot camps. I feel very fit and happy with my body, aside from my tummy. ...

6 weeks post op and feeling good!

I had two C-sections two years apart which resulted in a big loose tummy, diastasis recti and an umbilical hernia. My primary doctor encouraged me to have the hernia repaired so I didn't end up having emergency surgery. When I visited the general surgeon, I asked if he could fix the muscles and I didn't like his options. He told me about a new procedure but didn't know much about...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Bump on my Nose That I Have Hated for 9 Years - San Diego, CA

I love everything about this surgery, it was easy going, my eye did swell but that was the only pain I had. When you take the stuffing out of your nose, it HURTS, probably the worst pain I have ever felt, yet I would do it again if I needed. It was worth every penny, and all the pain! I breath better and love everything about my new nose.

Dr Batra is an Amazing Doctor - Del Mar, CA

I had a breast lift with implants with Dr Munish Batra on 12/23/14 I am still healing but so far I am so happy with my results. I can’t thank Dr Batra enough he has given me my confidence back. He has a wonderful bed side manner and is very caring. He answered all my questions and was honest about what I would experience during and after surgery. I wouldn’t recommend any other surgeon.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

26 Yr Old 5'1 120 Lbs with Tuberous A Cups to 425cc HP Mentor Silicone- San Diego, CA

I have always been self-conscious of my breasts and dreamed about breast augmentation ever since I discovered I was stuck with an A cup. I hated that they were small, far apart, cone shaped, and lacked upper fullness. I did a lot of research and there are a lot of surgeons (not all board certified) that can do a BA at various prices ranges. I met with three different doctors in La Jolla but I...
