5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

Beautiful work and wonderful Dr. and Staff

My procedure was a breast augmentation (415cc gummy bear) with a donut lift. I'm a petite and fit gal that was always stuffing my AA cup bra with whatever I could find to look more even and woman like. I finally decided to talk to a good Dr. about my options and found Dr. Lepore online with rave reviews about his professionalism, humbleness, and expertise. By the end of the consult I knew he...

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

I could not be happier!

Let me start by saying I could not be happier with my results! Dr Lepore is extremely talented. I had visited several doctors before making my decision. After meeting Dr Lepore and having a consultation, there was no question in my mind he was the right choice. He knew exactly what needed to be done to achieve the look I wanted. And his price point was most reasonable. I got Lipo on my entire...

dr.lepore is the best. Los Gatos, CA

DR. LEPORE really knows what he is doing and I cant express it enough on how pleased I am. He was so professional and helpful. He made me feel like I was making the right choice and gave me his honest opinion and I am so happy my bosses wife referred him to me. After seeing her outcome I knew he'd be the right Doctor for me as well. He deserves award of the year or something because he truly is an amazing Doctor, I would definitely recommend anyone to him!! I mentioned in my review how I had no bruising , no vomiting , and was ready to return back to work in a week. HE ROCKS :)))

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

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

Dr Lepore is amazing, He's very, very sweet and caring. His staff are the same, very friendly. Unlike most medical offices, where you can tell the nurses and staff and annoyed and don't want to be bothered, his staff checks on you and tries their hardest to make it the best experience. They even didn't mind me bringing in my kids, who were very behave by the way, but I have been to offices where they did not allow children. This was another aspect that won me over. I felt extremely welcome! He is very skilled and precise, and he did an amazing job, they look great! Like i said, whenever I had a pain or discomfort he was only a phone call away!

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

I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Lepore. He educates you and is a very pleasant doctor. He has extensive and impressive credentials. My mother died of breast cancer, so it was a very sensitive issue for me to even do this procedure, since I do mammograms every year. His knowledge, expertise, experience, his care and honest opinions (how big I should go, what would look good, natural, etc), convinced me that he is the doctor who I want to do my surgery. I felt very comfortable and confident with him.

Love my New Look! - Los Gatos, CA

Dr. Lepore is amazing and his office staff is absolutely the best to be found! I truly can’t say enough positives about my experience. Without any hesitation, I would (and have) recommended him to several people that are interested in having cosmetic surgery.

5 out of 5 stars Brazilian Butt Lift

32, 2 Kids - San Jose, CA

Great to meet, professional and very comforting in his knowledge. He listened to what I wanted done but was also very appreciative of my body and its natural form. He was very informative and willing to answer any questions and ease any uncertainty I had.

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,...

DO JOWLS MAKE YOU HOWL? by: Vincent Lepore MD

For humans, jowls are probably leaders among the ‘least-wanted’ facial features. On your favorite pooch, they’re cute, endearing, and biologically useful. On most of us? Not cute and not useful. WHAT ARE JOWLS? Jowls are those extra areas of skin and fat that start appearing in the lower face, as we age. When is that? Well, it varies, but usually starts to become noticeable in middle age; 40s for some, and 50s for others. Where do jowls come from? They’re parts of your face that re...

FAT TRANSFER-Where Can My Fat Go? by: Vincent Lepore MD

“Natural Filler”- “Liquid Gold”- “Personal Recycling” are a few of the phrases you’ll hear used to describe Fat, and the practice of Fat Transfer. Medical people will also use the term Fat Grafting for the procedure which takes fat from one or more areas of your body where there is excess, and transfers it to another area. It’s a technique that’s been used for years, so by now, almost everyone is aware of cosmetic and reconstructive procedures that use fat to create new loo...

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...
