Real Patient Stories

I'm into 1 year after having my saline breast augmentation and I can't be happier. The results are exactly what I wanted; they look and feel super natural. The staffs are helpful in making you feel comfortable and answering any questions you may have. The doctor is very pleasant and informative. I would highly recommend him to any one of my friends and/or family!

The lady at the front was wonderful. They were able to break down all the post op instructions for my recovery time and did a really good job. So far everything looks really good and scarring was minimal to none.

I went to Dr. Mo over a year ago for a breast augmentation. I was absolutely blown away by him and his team. Their caring bedside manner made me feel so comfortable and so welcome. I am beyond happy with my choice and highly recommend Cosmetic Surgery Institute of Palm Desert to anyone looking to enhance themselves.

We restore, repair, and make whole those parts which fortune has taken away, not so much that they delight the eyes but they buoy up the spirit and help the mind of the beset.
