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

Dr. Shamoun and his team made a difference in my life, they treated me remarkably as a patient as well as a human being. I have gained the confidence that was missing from a long-life complex about my nose and I will always be grateful for that.

25 Years Old - 5'6" - 110 Lb - 400 Cc - Silicone - Mod+ - Newport Beach, CA

An incredible surgeon who has all the most important qualities I was hoping for in a doctor - raw technical skill, an good eye for balance and aesthetic, candor, and a deep, intimate passion for his patients and his work.

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

From the first consultation till the end I'm satisfied with Dr Shamoun and everyone in his office (Yvonne is extremely helpful and kind). He is very talented, skilled, listens to what you want, and explains everything thoroughly then gives you the best option to get the look you want. The day I met him in my first consultation I knew I'm in the best hands. I am a very picky person and pay attention to details in general, so you can only imagine how I would be when it comes to choosing a surgeon that will operate on my body. I was scared of the whole procedure but he was very sweet and assured me that everything will be fine. I flew from the other side of the world to have the surgery with him (16 hours flight) and I would do it again in a heartbeat. He is a bit on the pricey side but that doesn't bother me at all, I got what I paid for and more. Results far exceeded my expectations as they look perfect and super natural just like what I asked for, I didn't have a single bruise, I didn't need to wear a strap or any of the weird things I saw people wearing post operation, scars are fading perfectly (2 months post op) and the recovery was WAY better than I expected and not even close to what my friends had to deal with after having the same surgery with other plastic surgeons. He is extremely caring, he called me after surgery at night to make sure I'm doing well, and I texted him at 2 am asking him a question about my antibiotic and he replied asap. I still can't believe I flew to NYC a few days after my surgery and enjoyed my time! If I decide to have any other surgery, or any of my family members, I will never choose any other surgeon when I already know the BEST. I trust his judgment, skill and expertise. I highly highly recommend him. Please feel free to message me if you have any questions or want to see pictures.

Going for It! - Newport Beach, CA

After almost 15 yrs of considering plastic surgery & looking for doctors I have finally come upon Dr. Shamoun. I just like the guy. He is honest & very frank. He might not tell you exactly what you want to hear, but that's a very important thing when going into anything that can permantly change you. Everything he says is logical, and he takes the time to talk with you about every detail. He is also pricey. I have been saving for a LONG time.. But I have a feeling he will be worth every penny. From what I've seen plastic surgery wise in general.. the saying "you get what you pay for" definitely rings true. When it comes to your body, why risk it. Go to the best, save the money. Dr. Shamoun's staff (Yvonne) has also been spectacular. She helps explain anything else you might be unsure of. I have never gotten such a good feeling from any medical office as I have with Dr. Shamouns office. He seems like a true cross between Skilled surgeon of medical science & Artist. Excited about this quest:)

Dr. Shamoun and Yvonne are wonderful. Very confident, pricey, but I believe worth every penny!

Old Augmentation in Need of Replacement and Lift!! - Newport Beach, CA

I chose Dr Shamoun after hearing & reading about his excellent reputation. When I met with Dr. Shamoun I instantly knew he was the one I wanted to perform my breast augmentation, lift and fat grafting procedure. I can’t say enough about Dr. Shamoun, he is an extremely knowledgeable, skilled and gifted surgeon!! He was so kind and caring to my personal needs and spent time with me...

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

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

Dr. Shamoun is a very frank, honest and confident person and I felt completely comfortable with my choice of him for the surgery. My impression is that he is so confident of his skills he doesn't bother with selling himself or going into minute details with you. I did feel my pre-op was somewhat rushed but I don't have anything to compare it to. At the initial consultation I asked how many eyelid surgery's he had done and he simply said "tons". He isn't into self promotion and I actually like that, my feeling is that is due to a certain humility and his being a highly confident person. My friend who worked at the referral service said to beware (or at least be somewhat cautious) of super fancy websites and that high profile appearances by doctors don't mean a thing. They can get themselves on tv talk shows and the like but it doesn't necessarily follow that they are good at their craft. If you need a lot of reassurance that he is the Doctor for you and he is amazing and so forth, you might not get it directly from him, I knew in my gut and from his photos that he was right for me. I like a straightforward person because I feel that is an indication of honesty and respect for others. It was completely evident that he cared extremely about doing a great job on me, he is a true professional and I think sets a very high standard for himself. He is totally invested and takes pride in his work and is ultimately very caring. My research on him was very positive, he gets great feedback. His website is outdated and has very few photos but his book at the office is good. His staff is awesome from Yvonne, the receptionist, who is so knowledgable and answered all my questions without fail, to my nurse, Lisa, and my anesthesiologist, Jim. They were all wonderful, I can't imagine experiencing better support and care than I did from these three people. I highly recommend Dr. Shamoun, I think he is a great talent and is a man of utmost integrity. So far, I couldn't be happier. UPDATE: Almost two months post surgery and I couldn't be happier with my results. I highly recommend Dr. Shamoun and if I ever have another procedure, without question he will be my Dr. of choice.

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

I had my procedure done by Dr. Shamoun, and my review of him is long over-due. I could not have asked for a better plastic surgeon. I was really impressed with his professionalism and directness. I initially went to see him for just a nipple reduction. He recommended that I get a breast augmentation along with the nipple reduction. I was hesitant to do so because of all the negative side effects I read about breast implants; however, Dr. Shamoun thoroughly and intelligently addressed all of my questions and concerns. I did proceed with the breast augmentation, along with the nipple reduction. I am so glad I went through with it, as I am still utterly thrilled with my new breasts. Dr. Shamoun is a master at what he does, not to mention kind and sweet.

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...
