TESTIMONIALS

I could not be happier with the results of my surgery. For years I had been wanting to get breast augmentation, but was always afraid of the risks. When I was recommended to Dr. Koo, she put my mind to ease. She gave me the personal attention I needed and really understood what I was wanting/not wanting. I love the approach she takes to each of her clients, both before, during, and after surgery.

Dr Koo’s skin care line is like no other product I have ever tried. Her products are simple, and it’s such an easy routine—each time I use the products I feel like I am really treating myself. My results have been fantastic—taken years off my look. This has been such a great investment in myself! The longer I use Dr Koo’s products, the less make-up I need.

Mary Ann C

Dr Koo is an excellent surgeon who will take care of you, make the right choice and if she feels she cannot give you what you want, she will send you elsewhere. She is very honest and will help you make the right choices.

S.J, St. Louis, MO

I couldn’t have been more pleased with Dr. Koo and her staff. I sought her out after doing significant research regarding breast augmentation procedures. Her artistic talents, phenomenal staff and complete understanding of my needs ultimately contributed to my decision to select her as my surgeon. My results are exactly what I wanted!

R.N, St. Louis, MO

When I called the office for my first appointment I told them I wanted the Fraxel Laser. The front desk staff made me an appointment for an evaluation with Dr. Koo personally. My face looks amazing. Dr. Koo said that I didn’t need the laser but that I needed skin care a little Botox and some filler Juvederm. I look great.
