Patient Comments (45)

The surgery was actually easier than I thought. I had some hesitations with the fact that the surgery was elective. I was nervous about the procedure and the outcome but am very happy with my outcome. I would recommend Dr. Koo and have sent several friends to her. .

After my breast reduction I feel so much better. I was so over having my breasts always in my way and preventing me from doing all of the things I used to enjoy before they got so big. I am so appreciative of all of Dr. Koo's help and her kindness.

Really excited about all of the new possibilities Dr. Koo has opened up to me. My tummy tuck has given confidence to get back to the gym and really start my healthy lifestyle.
