Dr. Koo is Amazing and Very Professional and Carin - St. Louis, MO

Everytime I think about how I used to feel before my surgery I am so happy I found Dr. Koo. I look so good people take a double take.

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Excellent Experience - St. Louis, MO

I had a liposuction on my inner and outer thighs. I was of normal weight for my height. Every straight a line skirt and every pair of pants made me look like I had really big legs. Dr. Koo told me I had 'saddle bags' and that I was a good candidate for the procedure. I went back to work in 5 days. I am so glad I did it. I look much better in my clothes and feel very comfortable in my Yoga...

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Awesome Doc - St. Louis, MO

I have had several procedures done by Dr. Koo over the years. Most recently, I had my eyes done. I looked so tired and my eyes and forehead all looked like it needed to be moved up. My husband said I always looked like I was mad and scowling. I just did my upper eyelids and a brow lift. It looks great.

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Great Doctor - Saint Louis, MO

When I called the office for my first appointment I told them I wanted the Fraxel Laser. The front desk staff made me an appointment for an evaluation with Dr. Koo personally. My face looks amazing. Dr. Koo said that I didnt need the laser but that I needed skin care a little Botox and some filler Juvederm. I look great.--Liz H.
