I had a Brazilian Butt Lift at Downey Plastic Surgery, and I?m glad I did. Dr. Cara Downey genuinely cares about his patient?s well-being. I was accommodated from the start to finish, and she answered all the questions I had about the procedure. She was very friendly and at the same time, her expertise in providing butt lift really shows ? as proven by my smooth-sailing recovery and the most beautiful results! Today, I still enjoy my perkier and more youthful backside, all thanks to Dr. Cara!
