22 Years Old, 5,3, 120 Lbs, Breast Augmentation - Los Alamitos, CA

Dr. Esmailian and his staff made me so comfortable from the moment i walked into his office. I came to him for a breast augmentation.

Professional, kind, and skilled

What can I say except for that Dr. E is fantastic! From the beginning to the end, the whole experience was great. I was looking to get a breast augmentation because i am into fitness and had nothing left up top from all the exercise. I have also previously had a breast reduction. I wanted boobs, just not huge boobs and not flat boobs ( from fitness). Just something proportionate. Prior to...
