5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Best Experience of my Life! - Beverly Hills, CA

I had a breast reduction in January of 2012 and now one year later I am still delighted with the procedure. My clothes fit better, my back pain is almost gone (also was in a car accident) and now my scars are pretty minimal so I'm posting to let people know how satisfied I am with the experience. I started with 32F breasts, which I did not need, want or enjoy. I now have 32C-D breasts...

Absolutely Great Result! - Los Angeles, CA

I tried a fat transfer into the lips but it didn't stay. First I have to point out that I have had an awful experiences at multiple plastic surgeons offices in Beverly Hills. It's not only that I've been going through a failed procedures over and over because I've seen dishonesty as well. Hollywood is a jungle so I've been wondering where I can find honest, down to earth...

Fantastic Experience with the Plasma Skin Resurfacing - West Hollywood, CA

To get rid of fine lines around the eyes, to tighten skin, to get rid of age spots and freckles and darkening of skin under eyes and on upper lids. To give my complexion a brightened refreshed new look. I was asked about why I did it (which you can read above) but also asked about healing time. I looked AWFUL for the first 3 1/2 days and was really glad my husband was out of town...

Otoplasty Artistry & Ear Surgery ~ Best Gift Ever! Thank You Dr. Steven Svehlak! - Los Angeles, CA

At 37 years old, all I can say is, "Better late than never" but I also know just how difficult it was to try and find the best plastic surgeon. My journey took time, hopefully you can read my recommendation and save yourself any additional and unnecessary agony. I'm also very cautious about any type of operation and live by the motto: "Better safe than sorry" for as asymmetrical and prominent...

Devastating Results By LA Doctor

I am a young college student. Before getting the procedure, I had just been signed with a top modeling agency here in LA and was looking for a boost in my appearance. I somehow got talked into a lip lift, which is normally reserved for 40+ women, or women with long upper lips. I am/had neither. The whole experience has been really devastating, since I was not a candidate for this procedure...
