Not everybody knows about this procedure yet but I’m pretty sure in the near future he’s going be well known and a lot of People will consider having the same procedure that I received. Not having to stay in the hospital for days is a huge thing and also not having left over scars is an amazing thing. Thank you Dr. Nguyen and the whole team for making my very first surgery a breeze.
