Excellent outcome after abdominoplasty, brachioplasty and liposuction. Two weeks out healing well and Dr. Lou’s team has given me a plan for the rest of my recovery.

It has been a week now since my procedure and I am healing nicely. Very happy I decided to go with Dr. Lou. He answered all my questions and put me at ease. Pretty much went just as I expected. I have referred several friends that are having procures as well since mine went so well. I would definitely recommend Dr. Lou and his amazing staff.

Dr. Lou was great! He completely put me at ease. I had something done that I thought would be more complicated. He explained the procedure and said it could be done in his office in a 30 minute time span. So easy! Now I regret waiting so long.

I recently had an umbilical hernia repaired by Dr. Lou. It has been a week since my surgery and I could not be more pleased with the results. Dr. Lou and his staff were great at every step in the process. I am healing nicely and have had no issues with the surgery. I would highly recommend Dr. Lou to anyone who wants an experienced, compassionate and highly competent surgeon. I could not have asked for a better experience.

This was my first experience with a plastic surgeon, and I was nervous. The staff was friendly and put me at ease from the minute I entered the office. Dr. Lou was professional and addressed all my concerns. My options were clearly covered and I will be continuing with the surgery.

I had heard great things about Dr. Lou through my friends at Thrive and I had to go to the open house to check them out. They are the nicest and attentive people. They heard all my concerns and I feel confident in choosing him as my plastic surgeon. I already have referred him to friends and family. Thank y'all so much, it was such a fun informative experience.
