3 out of 5 stars SculpSure

SculpSure Vs. Tradiotional Liposuction... Made the Wrong Choice

Before I start my review I must emphasize that this review is for the SculpSure laser ONLY not the physician. Dr. Boudreaultt and his wife Molly are amazing and I will go back to them for other procedures. I decided to get my flanks and abs treated only 1 time because that's all I could afford. All I can say is that after spending $3,400 for the treatment, I basically got no results. I look...

5 out of 5 stars Brazilian Butt Lift

The Absolute Best.

From the initial consultation to my multiple post op appointments, Dr. B has been absolutely fantastic. I knew as soon as he walked in for my consult that he was going to be my doctor. His personality matched mine, and that was most important to me. He was very excited and made me feel very comfortable. He's prompt and always has a smile on his face. My results are more than what I expected....

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Upgrades for this Mom Bod!

Where to begin? Start to finish Dr B has made this the most seamless and amazing experience I could ever have imagined. His clinic is inviting and modern, his staff are warm and kind, he is obviously a professional and extremely qualified, but he's also very nice and approachable. I felt instantly comfortable with him, like a part of the fam! Plus, the man is just a really great surgeon! My gut instincts told me to go for it! After 2 kids, and an 80+ lbs weight loss, all it took was a custom-designed Mommy Makeover and I feel like I look better now than I did in college. I would recommend him to my best friends, my colleagues, even my sweet mother. If you're on the fence, DO IT! The only negative aspect is that I didn't do it sooner (and to be fair, that's totally not his fault). Call him. You'll love the whole experience.

Botox for Correction of Masseter Muscles Enlargement Caused By Teeth Clenching

I have been clenching my teeth at night for years but recently it's getting worse and worse. My jaws would be sore and swelling everyday and it is making my heart shaped face to develop edges where the masseter muscles reside. And it just so happened that I heard about Botox for treatment of teeth clenching as well as masseter muscles enlargement during my consultation for Ultheraphy so I...

Finally Got my Mommy Makeover! So Happy! - Palo Alto, CA

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

Slender 34A with a Chest Impression to 400CC Implants - Palo Alto, CA

Doctor Boudreault was absolutely the best doctor I could have asked for! I actually didn't even look at any other surgeons Boudreault made me instantly feel comfortable and professional with my wants and goals his Wife Molly as well is extremely sweet she always made sure I was in a great mood and which kept me happy with decisions if I had been remotely unsure. By far my experience was perfect! Even the day after I got a FaceTime to check in on me!!! If you live in the Bay Area I could not stress enough how happy you will be going with Doctor Boudreault! My surgery wouldn't be the same!

5 out of 5 stars SculpSure

53 Year Old with a Stubborn Belly Area. - Palo Alto, CA

Fabulous treatment from both Dr.Boudreault and Molly Boudreault. A great husband and wife team who work well together to give you the best treatment they can offer.
