"He did an inadequate job by making one side of my face higher than the other and not being willing to re-do the surgery on my right side to even it up with the left side...." "It was very convenient and accessible to make an appointment and the staff was very courteous." "I have 3 friends who have also gone to him and are very happy with their results."

66 Year Young & Delighted with my Chin Lipo - Ontario, CA

Dr. Brain K. Machida was very nice, explained the procedure and answered all questions. He did not try to take advantage of me by offering more procedures. Instead of trying, he talked me out of a face lift I thought I needed. He is honest and ethical and I would recommend him to anyone needing or wanting plastic surgery.
