Doctor Romo is brilliant surgeon and wonderful person. He is very passionate about this work, very experienced and professional.I had to fix my eye bags which made me look tired and old no matter what I did. I was referred to Dr. Romo through my friend. The surgery went very well (had lower lid blepharoplasty) and recovery was fast (about one week). I am very happy with my result! If you are looking for professional plastic surgeon!
