I recently had a breast augmentation done by Dr. Ching and it's only been one week since surgery. I love them already and can't wait to see the final drop/shape of them! Pain was very least and also my incisions look amazing. I've never seen anyone's incision look as good as mine does, only after 1 week! Dr. Ching was very patient with me considering that I am very skeptical about every little thing and it has to be perfect to me. I felt only he was up to my standards! Thank you Dr. Ching! ??
