"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."
