Dr Watumull is amazing. He was very honest about the procedure I wanted done and about the outcome. He is very professional and has a great bedside manner.

Dr. Watamul fixed a real bad tummy tuck done by another surgeon. Having surgery and worrying about the results is pretty stressful enough and having to do it again because of a bad experience almost puts you over the edge. He knew exactly what he needed to do and I'm very happy with my results. He doesn't just see you one or two times after surgery, follow ups makes you feel like he really cares how the results look long term.

Great surgeon! LOVE my results. Only recommendation is if there can b more information provided in the pre-op package. Dr Watumull and his team did a great job answering all of my questions in terms of getting me ready for the surgery and what to expect after the surgery. i wonder if it would save some of their time if there were more details provided in their standard package. I have seen some other offices provide pre-op and post op videos. Just a thought. overall great experience!
He was very caring and listened to my concerns regarding breast augmentation. He recommended a certain implant size and type in relation to what would be a natural look for my body/frame. After my surgery, I was convinced that Dr. Watumull was right on target with his recommendations because my augmentation turned out really well and I am very pleased with the outcome. I am still healing at just 9 days after surgery and feeling great. Thank you Dr. Watumull!
