5 out of 5 stars Radiesse

Natural Looking Results... - Pasadena, CA

Very personable always. Friendly staff.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

61 Years Old, 34DD, 5'3", 132, Shoulder and Back Pain for Many Years. Pasadena, CA

My experience with Dr. Taylor has been completely positive and life-changing. I am only 2 weeks post op, but already my back and shoulder pain is gone. My breasts are still swollen and healing, but I am very pleased with the size....much reduced but I still look like a curvy woman. I told him I hoped for a modest size C, and I'm on track for that. Painful the first couple of days, but thereafter I would describe it more as discomfort and tender. I did not lose nipple sensitivity. Dr. Taylor has been completely professional and caring throughout. He treats me with honesty and respect. Beyond his skill as a surgeon, it is clear that he has the eye of an artist, as evidenced by the beautiful photos he has taken that are displayed in the office. The office is well-run, organized and friendly. Gina and Sue are obviously happy working with him and are a pleasure.

The Good, Bad and Truth of Lip Lift..Pasadena, CA

First appointment , he was polite, he took his time to explain me the healing process, he assure me that this was a simple procedure, I felt very comfortable with him. Besides his prices were really good! I had three small lipo areas, and crescent arm lift.. procedures maybe that's why he gave me a great deal though :),,after surgery he called me to see how I was feeling ( felt the

Lipo to tummy and hips. Trying to avoid tummy tuck

Well, after debating for months, I've decided to get lipo and not a tummy tuck. Sure, a tummy tuck would be great, but it seems like way too much recovery for me. I'm having aggressive lipo on Dec 4th. Here's hoping it goes well. I'll post pics later. I'm 40 and have one child. I feel pretty good about my decision as if it's not enough, I can always get a tummy tuck later. Well, my...

Superb Implant Removal, Lift and Areola Reduction - Pasadena, CA

10 STARS! - I can't say enough about Dr. Taylor and his staff. Dr. Taylor is AMAZING. Dr. Taylor performed my implant surgery in 2003 and also my removal just this week which included a lift and areola reduction. I'm only 4 days post surgery but I can already tell that my boobies will be more beautiful than they were when I was young! Comparing him to another, very well known plastic surgeon...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Scar Revision After Breast Augmentation - Pasadena, CA

I feel I'm so lucky to find Dr. Taylor that I have to write a review to share my experience. I had breast implant surgery done by another so called famous plastic surgeon, I was not happy with the result, my scars formed ugly, dark and wide, I've tried bleach cream, tape and even laser, nothing worked. A friend referred me to Dr. Taylor, he spent almost one hour for consultation, answered all...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

40 Years Old Mother That Breastfed Both Children for over a Year Each Child...... - Pasadena, CA

Dr. Taylor is one of the BEST doctors I have ever encountered to make my experience not only a good one but a special one! He and his staff spent a lot of time with me and answered any possible questions I had to make sure everything would be more than fine! They all were extremely polite, generous and most of all still professional! I have never had my doctors follow up with me like Dr. Taylor and my anesthesiologist to make sure my recovery was an amazing one!

55 Year Old Needing a Lift! - Pasadena, CA

Dr Taylor is an incredibly talented surgeon. I've had 3 surgeries with him and the results have been A++ on each surgery. He is super kind and genuine and his prices are extremely reasonable! I would recommend Dr Taylor to all of my friends and family!

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

All That I'm Shooting for at 43, As a Mom of 3, is Simply a Naturally Beautiful Look - Pasadena, CA

Dr Taylor was referred to me by my friend who was referred to him by another friend of ours. He has definitely met all of our expectations. I am thrilled with his surgical knowledge, his skills I believe will equal his knowledge (i'm just 2 days post op), and his bed side manners and overall demeanor are second to none!
