Patient Testimonial on Injectables

Stephanie shares her experience receiving Injectables from Dr. Cho at Straub Cosmetic Surgery.

"I had my breast implants almost two years ago now with Dr. David Cho. My breasts came out beautiful! I am glad I did it because after surgery, I felt good about myself. Dr. Cho is truly my hero because he did such a good job with me. Before the surgery, Dr. Cho explained everything carefully, and after the surgery, Dr. Cho was great with his follow-up appointments. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is thinking of getting breast implants."
