MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

I've had a few body procedures with Dr. L and I still go to him for botox and juvederm.

He is excellent for body contouring and the prices aren't too bad. The major complaint is his bedside manner. He's not very easy to talk to or warm, or at least not in the beginning. Now that I'm an established patient he's a lot easier to talk to and he's a lot warmer which is nice.

I had lipo with him and let me tell you, he does a great job. There are so many things that can go wrong in lipo, and I've read and seen many horror stories but he does a great job. I went for a minor tweak once after and that was it.

He did very difficult areas with great success and they don't look unnatural. Believe me, some areas like inner thighs or upper abs are difficult to do right without leaving an irregular bumpy appearance. I can't say it's flawlessly perfect but you can never expect that. It's pretty close to it though.

The only other downside to him that I can think of is that he doesn't entertain my unusual requests. He's not very flexible in technique and does the basic golden standard. I guess it's not such a bad thing because he doesn't fall prey to new gimmicks in cosmetic surgery, but sometimes I wish he'd be more experimental. He's conservative which can be a good thing since it avoids unpredictable results.

As for the botox and fillers: I love his work there too. He did my tear troughs which are also very difficult to achieve a natural appearance but he did a great job. No lumps, bumps or anything like that and the filler has been lasting for close to a year now!
I've started "preventative" botox on my forhead brow area about a year ago and he does a good job each time.

Overall I'd highly recommend him but to those who aren't intimidated or annoying and ask the right amount of questions.
