5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision
July 2016 Dr. Hallak is simply AMAZING! I had a breast lift and augmentation back in July 2013 with a surgeon in La Jolla, very expensive surgery, but I had believed that expensive meant the best. I was so wrong! I was never totally pleased with the results but I had no other option than accept the look of my breasts. In January 2015 I had my first mammogram and it was a total...
5 out of 5 stars Acne Scars Treatment
I was turned to Dr Hallak by a friend who had nothing but excellent things to say about him, and I can certainly affirm she was absolutely correct. From introduction and the plethora of questions I had, through the actual undertaking of my procedures, all the way to the follow-ups during the post operational process. Every step of the way was met with reassurance, complete support, and professional genuine care for my well-being and satisfaction. Needless to say, I will be giving Dr Hallak a 5-star rating, and gladly will refer all my friends for their future PS needs to him.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
Dr Hallak has a great bedside manner and little to no waiting time for pre or post op visits. I am very happ with my results and will be referring all my friends to Dr Hallak for any of their reconstructive or cosmetic surgery needs.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
I would highly recommend Dr. Hallak and was impressed with his professionalism. He wasn't in a rush when discussing my procedure, and spent plenty of time making sure I would be happy with my results. Overall, the process of consultation and surgery was convenient and friendly, and the environment he provides is one I would definitely return to.
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
The dr was very informative and explained everything in great detail to where I did not have any questions or doubts when leaving my consultation. Day of surgery was nerve racking as it is for many people, the staff at the surgery center were very professional and courteous. I woke up after having my breast and tummy done with no nausea or pains of any kind. My follow up was perfect, and informative about what to expect. I had two drains in and had the first removed after 7 days and the second removed after 11 days. This is because I am prone to having fluid collection. After the first week I hasd a lot of questions about swelling etc and he was always responding within an hour or so with satisfying answers.
