So Much Better Than I Imagined - Woodbury, MN

Dr. Thao is professional, willing, and skilled. Everything about my procedure was somewhat unusual, and Dr. Thao did a most successful job. I wish I'd consulted with Dr. Thao years ago to remedy my butt issue. I cannot say enough good things about this experience.

Upper Eyelid and Eyebag Surgery with Dr Thao, Woodbury Plastic Surgery,Minnesota

I`d suffered from hereditary eyebags and droopy upper lids for years. They made me look older and I always looked tired. After lots of research, I traveled from the UK to Minnesota, where I met some former patients of Dr Thao`s to see what his work looked like in real life. I was very impressed with their results. I then went for a consultation and booked myself in for surgery. The operation...

Getting Older Made Easier - Woodbury, MN

I enjoy the staff very much and they all have a good sense of humor as well as being respectful. Dr. Thao is so sweet,kind and a true gentleman. I've enjoyed them all and their help. Now I can grow old gracefully because of their skill and his skin line. Looking forward to Dr. Thao doing my eyes soon!

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

I Always Feel Like I Get my Money's Worth - Woodbury, MN

I just turned 52 years old and look like I am in my late 30's. I attribute this great fortune to my plastic surgeon, Dr. David Thao. I have been seeing Doctor Thao for almost a decade. Rather than taking lots of trips, I would rather invest my money into myself. I started with Liposuction and a Tummy tuck and had amazing results. Dr. Thao is always careful about perfect results. If he doesn't...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

WOW my New Body. Saint Paul, MN

Dr. Thao is responsible for giving me a new outlook on life in my 50's. For the last 25 years I have taken care of my children and not myself. At 50 I figured it was time to take care of me from the inside out. I have had two children, one by C-section, and gained a lot of weight. I decided with a little reluctance to look into a tummy tuck. I found Dr. Thao and went forward with the...

The Best Mommy Makeover Surgeon! Woodbury, MN

Dr. Thao was very detail oriented and answered all my questions so I wouldn't be so first time doing a major surgery. His staff was also super friendly and helpful. Thanks to the whole team for holding my hand throughout this process and being patient with me. I love my results!!!

5 out of 5 stars Asian Eyelid Surgery

First Day Post Op - Minnesota

Dr. David Thao has a keen eye for beauty! He knew what I wanted and was very confident in what he was doing. His assurance of my outcome was a lot better than the consult I had with a prior doctor. After the consult, I was able to schedule my appt in right away within the next two weeks since my procedure didn't require an outpatient stay. During the procedure, Dr. Thao and his assistant talked to me throughout. Time went by such a breeze that it was already over before I realized it. I experienced no pain whatsoever. Even the anesthesia wasn't painful. I experienced very little bruising and the swelling went down after a week. When I went back to remove my stitches, I was very pleased with my eyes. Dr. Thao was very pleasant as well as his staff. They showed professionalism, but was also informal enough to give me their experiences & advices in regards to a good recovery.

Upper Eyelid Surgery

He was a perfectionist, wanted to make sure my eyes were even and what I wanted. Talked to me during the procedure to calm me, made sure I was comfortable.
