5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Always Been Interested in a Juverderm

My lips weren't too small but I was always curious how my lips would look if they was alil more fuller but as natural as possible. The lady who did my lips was real nice. Explained everything well. Her name was Tiffany. The pain was tolerable and trust me I hate pain. I'm happy with the results but it is still early. My lips are swollen and she told to wait 2 wks that will determine my final...

Best Gift I Have Ever GivenMyself! - Houston, TX

From the moment I walked into Dr. Basu's office, I knew in my heart I was it the right place. I had had consults with several other plastic surgeons,but I just couldn't pull the trigger....until I came to Dr. Basu's office. Dr. Basu is an incredibly talented surgeon, and in addition to that his staff is AMAZING! Every single person I had contact with was kind and patient, answered all my questions (and I had a lot) with confidence and really made me feel like family. If you want to have a great experience from beginning to end, choose Dr. Basu!

Love My Results!!

Absolutely great experience!! The staff is amazing and Dr. Basu really took the time to talk with me and decide the best way to give me the results I was looking for!! I ended up going with a tummy tuck and lipo. I truly respected his honesty about what procedures I actually needed versus what I wanted. Every visit is very personal.. I never feel like just another patient!!

I Love the Results - Houston, TX

Excellent Doctor! Dr. Basu took the time to thoroughly explain the procedure. I was really concerned about the location of my scar, he asked me to bring my lowest underwear and he left my scar at that location. Believe it or not by procedure was just about pain free and I am healing up really well. Thank you Doctor Basu and Staff Alba M.

Best Plastic Surgeon in Houston! - Houston, TX

Dr. B is one of the best doctors I have ever encountered in my life. I went on several consultations with board certified plastic surgeons. He made me feel comfortable and answered all of my questions. This doc is very thorough. And he listened to my goals to achieve the natural look I wanted. His before and after pictures were simply the best. I ended up booking surgery for breast augmentation and tummy tuck and I am soooo happy with my results! Dora and his staff are genuinely caring and made me feel at home with every visit. I would highly recommend Dr. B to anyone considering cosmetic surgery! He is truly the mommy makeover expert.

Breast Lift, Swap out Saline Implants for Silicone, and SERI - Texas

I recently moved to Houston, and did a ton of research on the best plastic surgeons, and decided to go see Dr. Basu. I was extremely impressed with his staff from my very first phone call to the office. When I met Dr. Basu I was blown away. He is very knowledgeable, and works with your body size, frame etc... and finds an implant size that will best suit your body. He took a ton of time to discuss various options with me. On the day of surgery, he again went over all of his plans for the surgery with both my mom and I. My mom was also very impressed with how thorough, knowable and patience with us. During the surgery, his nurse would go out and update my mom, and Dr. Basu himself went to speak with my mom while I went to recovery. Like I said, I am no stranger to plastic surgery, and Dr. Basu is by far the BEST surgeoun I have ever come across. He is a perfectionist, he takes his time, and is more concerned with doing a perfect job on each of his patients. Unlike other surgeons who rush through and try to get as many people into the OR as possible. Dr. Basu is nothing like that, he is 100% quality over quantity.

DR BASU IS AMAZING! Much Needed Tummy Tuck After 2 Kids. Houston, TX

Dr Basu and his team are amazing! From the minute I walked in for a consult, it was super relaxing and they were very honest and upfront with me. Tiffany was my primary nurse and she is simply the BEST. She is smart, honest and makes you feel very comfortable. She is available for any questions you have in between visits which was SUPER HELPFUL!!!! Dr. Basu is great too. He is a very talented individual who can make you feel like your old self prior to having kids! It was hands down the best decision I made! I HIGHLY recommend Dr Basu for a tummy tuck, breast aug and breast lift procedure!!
