36yrsokd,126lbs, 32 Small A, Pear Shape, Have Always Wanted Boobs but It Wasn't in my Genes... - Newport Beach, CA

I got a pretty nice ass and thighs from my mom, but unfortunately my tits never managed to arrive like I was hoping. For our first anniversary, my husband is buying me the boobs I've always wanted!!! I am very excited, but also nervous! I originally thought I wanted to go up to a small C, but realized that's actually pretty small. I have my pre-op on Thursday and am hoping to see how a D...

Rhinoplasty and Chin Implant - Newport Beach, CA

I have felt really comfortable from the very first I met Dr. Shamoun at my initial consultation for a rhinoplasty. The way that he examined and talked through the flaws on my nose and its effects on the rest of my face made me immediately want to proceed with his high performance surgical job. He provided me with an honest and realistic explanation of the procedures to be done that could...

Breast Augmentation with the Most Natural Results I've Seen - Newport Beach, CA

Going for It! - Newport Beach, CA

Ever since I was 15..16 I have longed for more fuller supple breasts. Being one of the first to develop in my age group, & going through so many weight fluxuations, I have never had full or perky breasts. Started wearing bras in 4th grade, full Ds by 16yrs old, small Bs by 18.. everything in between since. Now, I have small sad saggy Cs :( some Drs thought I had breastfed. I am not necessarily...

33 Year Old Momma Bear.Newport Beach, CA

I have had the best experience with Dr. Shamoun, so far. I am so excited and couldn't be happier to have this chapter of my life started. I met with Dr. Shamoun on Tues the 11th and he has been the only doctor to seriously go over this procedure so in depth, answer questions before I can ask them and he showed me many before and after pictures that pertain to me and my procedure. I am having a...

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

50 Year Old with Droopy Eyelids. Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty and 3 moles removed. Newport Beach, CA

Droopy lids run on my mother's side of the family and mine had gotten dramatically worse in the last year alone. Although it was elective surgery, I feel it would have graduated to a required surgery in a few more years due to impaired vision. I could feel the weight of my lids on my lashes, particularly on my right eye to where it was a daily nuisance. Although this is just the first day...

Breastfed 2 Kids for 16 Months Each. My Boobies Showed It! - Newport Beach, CA

Let me just say that I always had small breasts, size A to be exact. Before having children, I was content having my small perky breasts with normal sized nipples; however, after breastfeeding two babies for 16 months each, my nipples looked like those of a matronly gorilla on the Discovery Channel. I could not tolerate looking at them any longer, so I went to a few consultations with...

5 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty

if you're looking for an excellent surgeon and an honest human being, look no further!!! Newport Beach, CA

Dr. Shamoun is really the best out there in every regard. First of all, my mom and I went to see him about different procedures and each time, he spent at least an hour with us and answered all our questions thoroughly and kindly. He is one of the most honest doctors out there and will tell you exactly what he thinks, regardless of him making any money off your procedure. In fact, for my...
