5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

32 Years Old - Breast Aug with Implants - Newport Beach, CA

He initially told me how he would like to perform the procedure after examining me and taking measurements, based on the shape and makeup of my own body. All of my questions were answered in detail (and there were A LOT), which eliminated most of my concerns. Surgery and pre-op were a breeze and recovery was as described. I've seen him for more follow-up visits than most of my friends who have gotten implants saw their surgeons afterwards, and that works perfectly for me since I'm a total hypochondriac and always worry something is wrong. I'd rather see him more often and hear that everything looks great than wonder!! Overall, the process has been wonderful and I'm extremely happy with the results.

41 Years Old, 3 Kids, Full Tommy Tuck and Breast Augmentation, 5'4'', 126 Pounds - Newport Beach, CA

After more than 6 years of debating with myself if I would get a mommy makeover done, I decided to go ahead. I've got my surgery done a week ago, and I can say that it is totally worth it! I was surprised how my body reacted very well to the procedures, my recovery had been very easy so fat, with very less pain ( no more than the soreness of a big work out). I am trill with my results!!! I...
