5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

dr.lepore is the best. Los Gatos, CA

Hello there everyone, I would like to let you all know how my experience went with getting my breast augmentation, I had been wanting to do this procedure for 5 years and I was referred to DR.LEPORE who is located in Los Gatos at Good Samaritan Hospital. The first time meeting with Dr. Lepore I instantly knew he'd be my Doctor. He was not only very professional but gave me his HONEST opinion...

Couldn't be happier!

Before deciding to get my procedure done by Dr. Lepore, I went to get a couple other consultations, but only Dr. Lepore made me comfortable. He went into every options possible and their pros and cons, instead of asking me "what do I want to know?" The deal breaker for me is Dr. Lepore doing the consultation and letting me know that he is going to be the one doing the procedure, instead of...

Amazing! - San Jose, CA

I had thought about getting breast augmentation for a long time and when I was finally ready to pull the trigger, I went in to see Dr Lepore. I walked in to his beautiful office, and was immediately greeted by the warm and loving staff there. After meeting the nurses and Doctor, I knew that he was the right surgeon. I had visited other surgeons in the past and either got a cold sterile feeling...

I Am a Super Happy Customer... - Los Gatos, CA

I love my new body and my husband is the happiest. I had my thighs (outer) done and a hole in my outer thigh filled with fat and it change my entire look. I love it now. I had my lower eyelids done and the results are so natural. Nobody knew I did it. Wonderful doctor. Honest and a true artist. He did an awesome job and the scars are almost invisible. The healing was smooth and very little...

Totally Worth It! Should Have Done It Sooner! San Jose, CA

My breasts used to be a 34C and they were a nice shape, but I always thought it would be nice to have bigger breasts. Certain clothes could look better on me and swimsuits as well. I am pear shaped, so having a breast augmentation would help to balance things out. I'm also in my mid-40's and I thought it's time to do a reshaping going into the next phase of my life. I did research on...

Love my New Look! - Los Gatos, CA

As a fairly small breasted woman (and in my late 50’s), I began the journey of finding the right doctor for breast augmentation. After meeting with several doctors for the consultations, I left the appointments feeling that more time was spent discussing costs, rather than with the doctor that would be performing the procedure. A co-worker who had a similar procedure (and looks fantastic), r...

5 out of 5 stars Brazilian Butt Lift

32, 2 Kids - San Jose, CA

Have been in the gym working aggressively for 2 years and felt fit but my body shape didn't leave me confident. I worked on my but but laterally, the muscle wasn't full. I made sure I waited a long period of time before taking the step in searching for a doctor. I was nervous and very conscious of my choice. It's been 4 days and I can already see the body changes he's improved. I'm sore and...

Great Doctor, Great Results, Great Staff

I had always talked about wanting to get a BA. After years of thought and making sure I was in a good financial position, I made the decision to go for it. Once I knew it was something I was definitely going to follow through with, I did all the research I could. I read a lot, watched probably every YT video out there, read other people's experiences, etc. When it came to choosing a surgeon,...

33 Years Old. Two Kids. Droopy Breasts and Extra Tummy Fat+skin - San Jose, CA

I've always dreamed of getting breast implants since I had no boobs my whole life, but after my two pregnancies they became "deformed" so I decided it was time. I wanted to look "natural" so I went for 400cc and I'm thrilled with my results so far two months post-op. I still use my sports bra and gonna continue probably until after three months or so. So I still don't know my cup size. Now...

I had a great experience with Dr.Lepore.

I highly recommend Dr. Lepore. I had my surgery Jan 26 and I am loving my new girls. I was a (padded and push up) 36A and now I'm a 36C . Dr.Lepore made my experience comforting and easy. You cant go wrong with him;he knows what his doing! I'm glad I got my breast agumentation but also glad I chose him.

The Facelift is Back - by: Vincent Lepore MD

Why is the Facelift 'back'? and Where did it go? Let's rewind a little bit. The Facelift, always one of the signature procedures in the field of Plastic Surgery, has had some shifts in popularity in recent years. New, mimimally-invasive technologies explain some of the shift away from surgery. And, changing public perception and attitude account for other reasons. THE BOTTOM LINE: According the statistics collected by the American Society of Plastic...

MILLENNIAL PLASTIC SURGERY-What? and Why? by Vincent Lepore MD

Why would the youngest ‘labeled’ generation, the Millennials, embrace Plastic Surgery and cosmetic treatments? To a lot of people it comes as a surprise. It may not seem logical. Or, maybe it’s just ironic. But, it is happening. Millennials are generally defined as the 18 to 34-year olds. Except for a small percentage in the upper age limit in the group- people may wonder “Where are the wrinkles?” and “What’s sagging?” CHOICE, CONTROL, and IMAGE Younger patients are co...

YOUR SKIN- Protect and Preserve! by: Vincent Lepore MD

Your skin. It’s your body’s single largest organ; amazing in so many ways. It holds, protects, shows you as the individual you are, and even regenerates- all through life. As surgeons, we spend a great deal of time training to work with and within the skin and tissue. And as Plastic Surgeons, we spend years becoming expert at making and closing incisions, and understanding the science and art of maintaining and preserving living tissue. Remember, the word ‘Plastic’ in plastic surgery...


This question comes up all the time, and in different ways:  Do breast implants have an ‘expiration date’? Recently, our office hosted a beauty and wellness event. People were able to circulate through a number of booths showcasing makeup, skincare, relaxation, and medical products and devices, including breast implants. One person began a Q & A with the implant representative from Allergan:  “Is it true that I need to have my implants replaced after 10 years?”  And, it literally ...
