5 out of 5 stars Botox

Extremely Pleased with Botox Around Eyes, Above Brows, and in Between Eyes

Tried Botox for the first time a week ago. I couldn't be happier. My doctor used it around my eyes, above brows, and in between eyes. It was a total refresher for me.The key is finding the right doctor. There are several places in town where "the nurse" administers the injections. I was against that. I went to a talented cosmetic surgeon who trains other doctors in administering...

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Amazing life changing experience!

E looked into cosmetic surgery for many years before I made a conscience decision to schedule a consultation. I decided to put my trust in Dr. J Kevin Duplechain and I must say this has been the best experience and decision I could have gone with. I initially went in for just a full abdominoplasty, however, I ended up with a breast lift with fat transfer and implants, and liposuction on...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Absolutely Worth It!

In my search for a local surgeon to perform my tummy tuck, I spent a good bit of time going through before and after photos. I was very impressed with Dr. Duplechain's results and decided to schedule a consult with him. Everyone in his office has been a pleasure to deal with. Scheduling my consult was easy and they made sure to cover every aspect of the procedure and answer all of my questions. Dr. Duplechain took the time to listen to my expectations and desired outcome. I left my appointment confident that he could achieve the results that I was hoping for. Not only did he give me back my figure, but the results are better than I imagined! The post op care has been top notch also. I would highly recommend Dr. Duplechain for any cosmetic procedures and plastic surgery.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

29 Years Young, Twin Girls Age 2, Breast Augmentation - Lafayette, LA

I would like to start out by saying, I would have never imagined out of my 29 years of life that I would have considered a Breast Augmentation. I was always very satisfied with my natural breast. With that being said, I had beautiful twin girls that were born prematurely. I did everything to assure they were undoing great health so I chose to breast feed not only because it's the healthiest...
