"I was very nervous when I arrived to my first consultation with Dr. Lao. I had never had plastic surgery before and didn't know what to expect. I explained to him that I wasn't interested in changing my appearance, but only in getting a "fresher" look. Dr Lao was very sweet and patient. He answered all of my questions in great detail, both during the consultation, as well as to the numerous emails I had sent him. After my surgery, Dr. Lao kept in touch with me daily- checking in to see how I was feeling and answering questions about post-op care. I am very happy with my results and am wholeheartedly recommending Dr. Lao to any prospective clients."
