5 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting

Optimistic About CoolSculpting - Newport Beach, CA

For any procedure, I always make sure to find the best in that particular field (board-certified, with high reviews) and get the opinions of the top two doctors to find out who has a better strategy to tackle my problem, and ultimately who I "click" with better. Dr. Liu was my second consultation for CoolSculpting and scar removal, and about halfway through, I made up my mind that I was going to use her services. She was incredibly knowledgeable and thorough in her explanation of the procedures, went through all the potential side effects (as minimal as they are), and made sure to answer all my questions. I was comfortable speaking with her, and didn't feel rushed. As I showed her the problem areas, she was the one who let me explain what I needed, and never once tried to upsell me into getting more areas done. For the CoolSculpting, she measured what size applicator would work best to get my desired results, as she had all three: small, medium, and large. I liked her so much, I arranged to have my CoolScuplting procedure done the same day! Before the procedure, she had an assistant (who was equally as nice) make sure that I was comfortable and taken care of, but Dr. Liu was the one who placed and secured the equipment on me. During the procedure they set me up with a library of movies to watch, snacks and water, and her staff was a click of the button away. They sent me home with gifts, and instructions on my aftercare that was helpful to refresh what was explained in the office. I have never felt more compelled to write a review, until after my experience with Dr. Liu. Everyone in her office exhibits such high levels of professionalism and willingness to help. I highly recommend her, and am looking forward to my future procedures.

Better Than a Face Lift! - Newport Beach, CA

This was better than a face lift! Even after all my facial procedures to look better I was left with unwanted fat pockets that still showed the signs of aging. Now my clothes fit better, I feel better, and I look better! I had no down time, and was able to go back to work right after lunch after doing the procedure in the morning. I highly recommend this procedure to anyone who stands in front of the mirror and wishes the bulge they see was gone. Good luck and go for it! As well as being a real professional, she is so well informed that she takes the fear our on every procedure and the result is an A++ I have had the doctor help me with many of my skin problems and I have always been so happy that I am completely confident in any procedure she performs. She is the best!

5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Repair

absolutely worth it - California

Dr. and her staff have had extensive experience with these procedures. In addition she has had the procedures done herself several times and knows first hand what it is all about. Lastly, Dr. L handles a "high profile" clientele in NPB and she comes very recommended from some of the pickiest in the area !

5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Repair

Very Happy with my Fraxel Repair! - Newport Beach

I was unhappy with the way my face was starting to look after 50 and years of sun. I went to see my Dr. after a lot of research on Repair and after having consultations at other offices. She spent half an hour personally reviewing extensive before and after care and showing me patient photos. The procedure itself was a little painful but not after. She called me the night of the procedure herself to make sure I was doing ok and saw me for several days after. I am so happy I did this procedure because I have received so many compliments on how I look now!

I highly recommend Dr. L and CoolSculpting!
