in Pearl City, HI |
Well started out good. When I first went there for consult the nurse I spoke to was great. I came to find out that this was like fishing, i fell hook, line ,and sinker and booked my surgery by them saying all the right things. my implants almost immediately after surgery started bottoming out, so the dr.blamed it on me and can fix it with another surgery(alot more money). I'm very unhappy. Day 14 -8 months post op now, but looks like I'm 80 with a job that looks like it was do e 35yrs ago.

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! ??
