Patient Comments (1)
San Diego, CA |
In April 2016, had a consultation w/Dr. Handler to unquire about breast implant removal. Had my implants for 13 yrs & wanted them gone! Consultation fee was $100 and is applied towards procedure, should you choose to proceed w him. I was ecstatic when he said he could perform a simple removal in his office under local anesthesia for $1,000. This was EXACTLY what I was looking for! Now I'm 1 year out! Dr. Handler & staff are professional yet very easy going &unpretentious. PERFECT for Me!
Thank you for your kind words. We were happy we could be of service!
