2 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Mommy Make Over - Fountain Valley, CA

When you see my picture, you'll know why. I am 5ft weight 110 lbs. When I came to the office, my skin was hanging over my C-section scar. All doctor did was just remove the skin. I still look like 5 month pregnant because of the bulging tummy. Plus, the areas that were supposed to be lipo'd on appear to be the same and no lipo entry wounds. The doctor gave me a very weak explanation of my gaining weight and loose skin due to my age,etc. NOne of these is true. I lost 2 lbs and I'm only 40 years old. I'm very disappointed with the way he handled this. Also, the only girl who I can talk to in his office, got fired or quit so no one in there really cares about me. The doctor even told me that I need another operation to correct the ugly belly button that he created and it would cost me another $ 3k. I'm willing to pay another doc $ 10k to correct it but am not trusting him any more.

5 out of 5 stars Brazilian Butt Lift

Best Doctor in Fountain Valley!

I got a Brazilian Butt Lift by Dr. Nguyen. Even though I have a small frame, he did his best to not try to sell me that he can give me outrageous results like other doctors did. He said I may not have enough fat to do the Brazilian Butt Lift, but we can always try. And try he did! I am very impressed and shocked with what he was able to do! My waist is now tiny and he injected the fat to my...

1 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Young and Dumb - Boob Job Gone Wrong - Fountain Valley, CA

It was 10 years ago when Dr. Nguyen performed my Breast Augmentation procedure. I was young and naive. My boobs were not the same size, one was bigger than the other, higher than the other, and my areola were not the same size - and sat higher than the other. I was completely flat chested and although I was happy that I had boobs, it was evident that it was a bad job. The incisions around...

1 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

Left Completely Deformed. - Orange County, CA

This was the worst surgical experience I have ever had. Dr Nguyen promises one thing and gives you another. I went in 3 months ago for a breast lift with implant and Flank removal. Dr. Nguyen was very aware of my left breast being 2 cup sizes larger than my right. I have always been very self consious about that and explained to him that i wasn't looking for perfection. I wanted them to look...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

you're never to old to feel sexy - Fountain Valley, CA

Being 51, I thought it was too late in the game to care about looking and feeling sexy. Since 2012 I've lost over 100 lbs. and had quite a bit of excessive skin. From start to finish Dr. Thomas Nguyen, located in the city of Fullerton cared about me and my procedure, it wasn't just about the money but making you feel beautiful, and he did just that. Jennifer the front office executive was...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

My Experience - Fountain Valley, CA

I went in to see Dr. Nguyen for a Brest augmentation. Before I saw Dr. Nguyen I went to 2 other doctors. The first doctor in Newport Beach didn't see me his nurse did. And didn't take measurements or talk about the kind of implant I wanted. She was rushing me to schedule an appointment to get my Brest augmentation done. Even though I never saw a doctor.. The second doctor I went to only sat...

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Magnificient - Fountain Valley, CA

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are absolutely wonderful. This is the second surgery he has performed on me. The first one was a tummy tuck in 2006 and on Nov 1, 2013 a facelift. He delivers every time what he promises: the best a plastic surgery can offer: he is such an "artist", he gives you back the youth you desire, and in both surgeries, I bounced back so quickly and with very minimal pain. His...
