I went for a consult with Dr. Kao after seeing his name on a message board. I'd heard of him several years earlier referred by the surgeon father-in-law of a friend. The BR pictures on his website (ckplasticsurgery.com) were the best that I'd seen online (he does very round, natural looking breasts). I called the office and found out he was a Blue Cross provider, so went for a consult (I live in Santa Monica so it was especially easy). And his quiet, completely attentive manner just won me over immediately (esp compared to other well known BR specialists I'd seen). I could not be happier with my results. I'm 61 and have the perky breasts of a teenager. He's expensive (if insurance doesn't cover) but very worth it IMO.
