I am 3 weeks post breast augmentation. I am so happy with my results. Dr.Paulson and his staff are so professional and knew exactly what I was looking for. I would highly recommend Dr. Paulson.

Although Dr Paulson has a bad bed side manner he is an excellent surgeon. His work is amazing. I almost did not use him because he is rather cocky and not too friendly, but I decided I would rather have excellent breasts rather than a nice surgeon. I am so happy I went with him, they turned out wonderful. Ask him about using the medication for 3 months he can prescribe to make your breasts softer and more realistic looking. (I think it's an allergy medicine). I recommend him to everybody I know.
Very Happy with my results. Dr. Paulson and his staff were professional and kind. He is honest and will answer all your questions. Follow- up post- op by staff was great. I would recommend Dr. Paulson to anyone wanting a tummy tuck and lipo.
