5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

i LOVE my birthday boobies!!!!! 49 years old and feel so great! 485cc Natrelle - Dr. Lim and her team are amazing!

So far the doctor has been amazing. The office is clean and pleasant and well decorated and I appreciate the fact that Dr. Lim has been trained at Stanford. She is also honest down to earth and takes the time to have conversation with her patients. I wrote another review but wasn't able to fill in the five stars and Dr Lim and her team absolutely deserve the five star rating so if you want to see all my pictures you'll have to go elsewhere in real self. Suffice it to say these people are amazing and you will not be disappointed! Dr Lim answered my email questions right away, she called me on a Saturday to check in with me post op and see how I was doing; not to mention that the anesthesiologist is a medical director at Stanford!

Dr. Lim really has a nice way of making you feel comfortable. She is also very honest and if she does not think you need something she will tell you so you don't come out looking like a blow fish or something worse! She also makes sure that you are comfortable during the procedure so you feel the least amount of pain and I have to say I felt no pain. I have gone to Dr. Lim now for 3 years and I am so glad that I found her and Duet Plastic Surgery.

I was just too excited to finally rid my wet and smelly armpits once and for good. I used to have...
