I am a client of Dr Lakshman's for injectibles. He has a soft, artistic hand and impeccable bedside manner. I absolutely love my results! He listens to my requests and understands the artistry of injectibles! His staff is always kind and cordial. I highly recommend Dr L for botox or for any injectibles! I love Pasadena Surgeons!

I was referred to Dr. Lakshman by another doctor at Glendale Adventist Medical Center who said that Dr. Lakshman is the doctor she would go to if she ever needed a procedure done on her face. I like to fact that Dr. Lakshman worked with me as a cash patient and did a great job removing a wart on my face and the scar is almost undetectable. I recommend Pasadena Surgeons to anyone needing plastic or cosmetic surgery.
