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!
