Philosophy

Stanford-trained with more than 20 years of surgical experience, Dr. Sanjay Grover treats patients from throughout the U.S. and abroad. “Patients are extremely happy to find a plastic surgeon who is well-trained and comfortable addressing all of their aesthetic needs in one place,” he says. His practice offers a full array of surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic solutions and an exclusive medspa membership program, The Laser Lounge, designed to give patients affordable access to devices that deliver dramatic results. This state-of-the-art technology, combined with Dr. Grover’s expert application of injectables and fillers, enables him to provide a wide range of customizable treatment options.

About My Practice:

What is the right age to undergo eyelid rejuvenation?

Periorbital aging or aging of the eyes and brow is usually one of the first areas to reveal signs of premature aging. This can occur for many in their late 30s and early 40s. Aging around the eyes may manifest itself by a droopy brow or hooding, excess skin on the upper and lower lids and even protruding fat. Many patients will benefit from an endoscopic browlift and an upper and lower blepharoplasty. However, each patient presents with an individual set of circumstances and may only require one of these components by itself.

Should you wait until you are in your 60s to undergo a facelift?

Facial aging may present itself in one’s early 40s with signs of minimal skin laxity, jowling and deepening of the nasolabial folds. This may be exaggerated when one leans forward. Minimal facial aging can sometimes be addressed with nonsurgical options including devices such as Ultherapy, Exilis and ReFirmeTM, or with injectables including fillers and biostimulants. As aging progresses, a short-scar facelift with limited incisions may be indicated. If greater laxity of the neck skin appears, a full facelift and platysmaplasty (necklift) may be indicated. The desired goal is to achieve a beautiful, natural-looking, rejuvenated appearance with inconspicuous scars.

What is a useful beauty tip for our readers?

A warm smile can instantly enhance your appearance and bring out your natural beauty.

What percentage of your breast augmentation patients select silicone gel implants over saline implants?

Over 95 percent of my breast augmentation patients select silicone gel implants over saline implants. The FDA approved the return of silicone gel breast implants, clearing them for augmentation and reconstruction procedures eight years ago. Most patients select silicone gel implants because they offer a more natural feel. Some patients prefer the newly FDA-approved cohesive silicone gel “Gummy Bear” implants for a more natural look.

About Me:

What alternative occupation would you choose?

A rock star.

Why did you become a plastic surgeon?

Because I appreciate beauty and it suits my obsessive and meticulous nature.

What is your favorite part of your job?

I enjoy helping patients achieve their dreams.

What recent accolades mean the most to you?

I am honored to have been included in the “Top Doc” section of US News & World Report, Castle Connolly and Orange Coast Magazine, as well as the “SuperDoctors” section of Los Angeles Magazine. I have also been selected as one of the “Best of OC” in the Orange County Register newspaper.

The Right Decision

N.R. - Abdominoplasty Patient

“Just a little token of my appreciation for working wonders on my tummy and for your patience… I made the right decision in choosing you.”

The Perfect Shape

S.M. - Breast Augmentation and Abdominoplasty Patient

“I could never thank Dr. Grover enough for what he has done for me and given me. He has given me the perfect shape that I have always wanted and a beautiful, hard, flat, stomach that so many people dream of having… I have had two children, and I thought that after pregnancy my breasts and stomach would never look the same. I was right. Thanks to Dr. Grover my breasts and stomach look better than they have ever looked before. Dr. Grover has given me a type of self confidence that I had never had before. I have never met such a kind, caring, respectful physician/surgeon who is not only a perfectionist, he believes in the natural look. Thanks Dr. Grover!”

From the bottom of my heart...

Anonymous Patient

“I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your amazing work. Although it has only been 2 weeks, I know that I am FINALLY happy and couldn’t look or feel any better. You and all of your staff are so great, I couldn’t have asked for a better experience or result. From the first day that I met you I knew that you would change my life. After 2 surgeries I had lost hope of ever loving my body again and felt as though I should have never had surgery to begin with. I can now say that I can look in the mirror and not cry, I absolutely love my new breasts! Thank you for your kindness and for taking the time that you did to reassure me that you could fix what my previous Doctor couldn’t. I am forever grateful to you – thank you, thank you, thank you, you are truly a one of a kind Doctor.”

The Best Investment

L.R. - Breast Augmentation Patient

“My entire experience with Dr. Grover was impeccable. The post-surgery care was by far the best I have ever received… My augmentation was the best investment that I’ve ever made!!!”

I knew from the moment I had my first visit that I was in good hands.

L.S. - Breast Augmentation Patient

“Words could never express my feelings and gratitude for the ‘miracle’ that you have performed on me. I knew from the moment I had my first visit that I was in good hands… You are a master in your profession, a miracle worker and a wonderful man! Thank you very much.”

A Positive Impact

N.Z. - Liposculpture Patient

“My experience with liposuction by Dr. Grover was an extremely positive one. My thighs were nicely shaped and I had a flat stomach for the first time in my life! After a week or so of slight bruising, there were no scars or marks left over from the surgery… Dr. Grover himself is so caring and gentle… I would not recommend anyone other than Dr. Grover for plastic surgery. I have received so many compliments and have a great body because of him! I encourage anyone who is considering liposuction to do it because it truly has a positive impact on not just your body but also boosts your self confidence and makes you feel really good about yourself!”

My first meeting with Dr. Grover

S.K. - Face Lift Patient

“I interviewed many doctors over a 2-year period about a facelift… My first meeting with Dr. Grover made me feel very confident. I liked his approach, his suggestions and his candor about what to expect…He cared that I felt confident, comfortable and clear with him and what he was going to do. More importantly, my facelift was a huge success. I look exactly as I hoped to and my recovery was quick and trouble-free. I would go to Dr. Grover again in a heartbeat.”

Nothing but Amazed

E.C. - Breast Augmentation Patient

“I have nothing but great things to say about Dr. Grover and his staff. I feel I received excellent care and the entire staff is outstanding!… I am nothing but amazed and very satisfied with my results. I would highly recommend the practice to others and look forward to coming back to you in the future.”

45-year-old Mother of 2

S.F. - Breast Lift Patient

“I am a 45-year-old mother of two teenagers… Over the course of ten years, I consulted with approximately fifteen different plastic surgeons, all of whom were highly recommended with years of experience; many of them very well known… After meeting Dr. Grover, I knew that I had finally found the right surgeon, and I scheduled my surgery after a ten-year wait!… The surgery and recovery were a breeze; easy and relatively painless… Most important of all, my results were absolutely amazing! Dr. Grover had told me that I would be very happy; however, my fantastic results far exceeded my expectations! Two weeks post-surgery, when my dressing, tape and stitches were removed, my husband took his first thorough glimpse. He told me that I now had the breasts of an 18-year-old! I was, and I continue to be astounded by the dramatic and improved difference this surgery has made. I am also thrilled to say that I have barely a hint of any scarring. I accredit these outstanding results to the precision and skill of Dr. Grover. His before, during and after care procedures are thorough and unsurpassed. I just smile and thank myself everyday for making the decision to have this surgery and for selecting Dr. Grover.”

FAQ's

Q. Can I have a baby after tummy tuck or breast implant or breast lift?

What our experts say:

You can have a baby after a breast augmentation or abdominoplasty. We have patients who had breast augmentation earlier in life and then have a baby following that. Sometimes they don't need to have anything further done but sometimes they might need to change the implants to a slightly larger size. Sometimes they might require a mastopexy or breast lift. As far as an abdominoplasty is concerned, in general we don't recommend someone getting an abdominoplasty if they know they're going to have additional children, especially in the upcoming few years because it doesn't inhibit you from having a child but getting pregnant again will dramatically affect the appearance of your abdomen.

Q. Can I have my saline breast implants removed and then replaced with new silicone ones through the armpit incision (which is how they were put in 11 years ago)?

What our experts say:

Yes, that is possible depending on somebody who feels comfortable with the trans-axillary approach, and as long as you don't have capsular contractures or require a lift.

Q. How can I tell if I need a breast lift, a breast lift and breast implants or just breast implants? Is there an easy formula?

What our experts say:

You can simulate a lift by elevating your breasts or nipple areola and see if it feels like it's the appropriate amount of volume that you want to have. And once you see if that's an appropriate decision, if you don't feel it's enough volume, then an implant will be required. In some patients who may be deflated but don't need a lift all they need is an implant to help give them the shape and perk up their breasts. Other patients may have been deflated but also the nipple and areola are too low relative to the fold in the crease then they need a lift in conjunction with the implant.

Q. How do you decide whether to use silicone or saline breast implants? Is that the doctor's choice or the patient's?

What our experts say:

It's a decision that we make together. More than 95 percent select a silicone implant these days because it's a much more natural feeling implant. A saline implant may feel more like a bag of water and is more prone to issues with rippling than the silicone implant which has a much softer feel.

Q. Is it true that all women can achieve a flat tummy following pregnancy if they just exercise?

What our experts say:

No. This is a common misconception among husbands and trainers. There are certain physical changes, following pregnancy, that a woman may not be able to correct on her own, without surgery. An abdominoplasty may benefit many women following pregnancy if they suffer from excess fatty tissue, loose abdominal skin, stretch marks and a loose abdominal wall.

Q. Should you wait until you are in your 60s to undergo a facelift?

What our experts say:

Facial aging may present itself in one’s early 40s with signs of minimal skin laxity, jowling and deepening of the nasolabial folds. This may be exaggerated when one leans forward. Minimal facial aging can sometimes be addressed with nonsurgical options including devices such as Ultherapy, Exilis and ReFirmeTM, or with injectables including fillers and biostimulants. As aging progresses, a short-scar facelift with limited incisions may be indicated. If greater laxity of the neck skin appears, a full facelift and platysmaplasty (necklift) may be indicated. The desired goal is to achieve a beautiful, natural-looking, rejuvenated appearance with inconspicuous scars.

Q. Is there a certain amount of fat I need to get liposuction?

What our experts say:

Liposuction is for contouring. It's not ideal for weight loss. It's for contouring the stubborn areas that are resistant to exercise and diet. You don't want to remove every single fat cell. Instead you want to keep a nice thin layer of subcutaneous fat there so there isn't any dimpling and there aren't any irregularities visible.

Q. Is there more than one way to do a butt augmentation?

What our experts say:

Generally speaking, a butt augmentation is either done with a patient's own fatty tissue with fat grafting or with buttock implants which are silicone based implants. Brazilian butt diffuser refers to fat transfers to the buttocks. The fat is from your own body and combined with liposuction so the issue is you have to make sure you have enough extra fatty tissue that you can make a difference to the buttocks. So the issue becomes difficult because many of the patients we see in Southern California who desire a butt augmentation don't have much fatty tissue so if they don't have enough fatty tissue then the only option is a butt implant.

Q. What is the swelling and recovery like on butt augmentation surgery?

What our experts say:

It depends, it's a moderate amount of swelling, not necessarily too much discomfort. The important thing is to be off of the buttocks for several weeks following the procedure to allow for the healing, and if it was done with fat grafting you want the incorporation of the fatty tissues for the transfer fat cells to develop a new blood supply and be incorporated into the body. With an implant you'll want to be off of your buttocks so you allow for healing so the area doesn't develop any seromas or blood collections around the implant.

Q. When you do an eye lid lift is it part of a facelift or in conjunction with a facelift?

What our experts say:

It depends on what needs and concerns there are for each patient. There are some patients who only have periorbital aging because that's usually the first area to show signs of aging, even in the mid-30s, late 30s or early 40s. So these are patients who don't need facelift procedures but they need eye lid rejuvenation. And then there are other patients who may be in their 50s or 60s and they need a full facelift, which involves an endoscopic browlift, upper and lower blepharoplasty, and a facelift and necklift.

Q. When you do an eyelid lift or a browlift is it only surgical or does it include injectables?

What our experts say:

I use Botox as well to do a chemical browlift for periorbital aging. There are times when I may use a filler like Restylane in the lower lid tear trough area, sometimes alone and sometimes in combination with surgery. I think surgery is the best option for the periorbital area in most patients.

Q. Who is a mini facelift appropriate for?

What our experts say:

A mini facelift is usually more appropriate for somebody with early signs of aging just on the lower face with minimal aging in the neck.

Q. Will getting breast implants interfere with my mammography?

What our experts say:

Implants can obscure with mammograms. There's better visualization with implants under the muscle as opposed to on top of the muscle. It's important to relay that information to your mammographer when you go in for the mammogram so they take additional views to try and visualize as much of the breast as possible.

Q. What is a Botox browlift?

What our experts say:

You can do shaping of the eyebrows or a chemical brow lift using neurotoxins such as Botox or Dysport and that involves injecting the toxin in the appropriate places to relax the muscles in certain ways to allow for the shift in the way the muscles pull and allow the brow to elevate.

Q. Should you wait until you are in your 60s to undergo a facelift?

What our experts say:

Facial aging may present itself in one’s early 40s with signs of minimal skin laxity, jowling and deepening of the nasolabial folds. This may be exaggerated when one leans forward. Minimal facial aging can sometimes be addressed with nonsurgical options including devices such as Ultherapy, Exilis and ReFirmeTM, or with injectables including fillers and biostimulants. As aging progresses, a short-scar facelift with limited incisions may be indicated. If greater laxity of the neck skin appears, a full facelift and platysmaplasty (necklift) may be indicated. The desired goal is to achieve a beautiful, natural-looking, rejuvenated appearance with inconspicuous scars.

Q. What is the right age to undergo eyelid rejuvenation?

What our experts say:

Periorbital aging or aging of the eyes and brow is usually one of the first areas to reveal signs of premature aging. This can occur for many in their late 30s and early 40s. Aging around the eyes may manifest itself by a droopy brow or hooding, excess skin on the upper and lower lids and even protruding fat. Many patients will benefit from an endoscopic browlift and an upper and lower blepharoplasty. However, each patient presents with an individual set of circumstances and may only require one of these components by itself.

Q. What can I do when the weight just won’t come off despite my best efforts?

What our experts say:

It is reasonable to consider body contouring/liposuction/CoolSculpting if you are unable to achieve the shape you desire with diet and exercise.

Q. Is the fat transfer for butt enhancement permanent?

What our experts say:

Fat transfers to any part of the body, including the buttocks, may or may not be permanent.  This depends on whether the fat cells that are transferred to a particular area develop an adequate blood supply and the cells survive.  Some surgeons may say they get 50-100% survival; however, there are patients out there that will say none of their fat survived.

Q. How long should I wait to get pregnant after undergoing liposuction and breast lift surgery?

What our experts say:

One should generally wait at least three months following cosmetic surgery to attempt to get pregnant in order to give your body the time it needs to heal and prepare itself for pregnancy.  Scars may potentially worsen if one becomes pregnant soon after surgery as the increased estrogen can worsen scars.

Q. For how long can I wait to get pregnant after liposuction and breast lift surgery?

What our experts say:

One should generally wait at least three months following cosmetic surgery to attempt to get pregnant in order to give your body the time it needs to heal and prepare itself for pregnancy.  Scars may potentially worsen if one becomes pregnant soon after surgery as the increased estrogen can worsen scars.

Q. How long do the results from skin tightener devices last?

What our experts say:

For radiofrequency devices we use Refirme, which is done on a monthly basis for a period of three to five months initially and then some sort of maintenance. And then we have Ulthera, which is an ultrasound technology that delivers more aggressively with much more energy than Refirme does and affects a fibro fatty layer that we then tighten with a facelift. Those results can be more long lasting because of the amount of energy that's being delivered. But again with all these treatments it's not like you are going to reverse the aging process, it's just going to set back the clock.

Q. If I gain weight after a tummy tuck where will it show up and will it affect my tummy tuck?

What our experts say:

Well, you still have subcutaneous fatty tissues everywhere so if you gain weight you can gain weight everywhere because each fat cell that remains can get larger. There are certain areas of the body that are more prone and predisposed to gaining weight than others. If you're prone to gaining it in your abdomen you're still going to be prone to gaining it in your abdomen.

Q. Is a facelift only for wrinkles? What else does it correct and where are the scars

What our experts say:

No I wouldn't say a facelift is for wrinkles. A facelift is for re-draping of looser, lax tissues involving the skin and the underlying fatty muscle layer called the SMAS.

Q. Is a mommy makeover traditionally comprised of breast implants or a breast lift, a tummy tuck and liposuction?

What our experts say:

The stereotype of a mommy makeover is usually a breast procedure, usually a breast augmentation in conjunction with abdominoplasty and liposuction on the waist. A mommy makeover in reality can be anything that is done to correct the untoward effects of pregnancy. It can be breast augmentation, a breast lift, a breast reduction, nipple reduction, liposuction of the abdomen, abdominoplasty, liposuction of the waist, liposuction of the thighs, labiaplasty or vaginoplasty. There are a number of things that are affected from pregnancy.

Q. Is it possible if you have a C-section to have a tummy tuck at the same time?

What our experts say:

Although it's possible it's not recommended. There are some surgeons who do it but it's not something I would recommend. There are too many overall issues that are affecting a person during pregnancy as far as their overall health and blood volume and their tissues and so it's best to wait at least three to six months after a C-section to allow for normalization of blood volume and tissues and also make sure that the mom's not nursing. If she requires medication she would be transmitting it to the baby.

Q. Is it possible to just do a necklift?

What our experts say:

I know people who just have neck laxity and don't have lower facial issues and so they may have extra fatty tissue in the lower neck. They may have diastasis or separation of the platysma muscles that can be improved so you can do contouring of the neck, sometimes with liposuction alone and other times with an open neck lift with a platysmaplasty. This is more likely for a man than a woman.

Q. Should I have a browlift or an upper eyelift? What will give me a more rejuvenated look?

What our experts say:

That varies with every patient. Some patients may only need a browlift, others may only need an upper blepharoplasty and others may need a combination of both depending on where their aging is.

A warm smile can instantly enhance your appearance and bring out your natural beauty.

What percentage of your breast augmentation patients select silicone gel implants over saline implants?

Over 95 percent of my breast augmentation patients select silicone gel implants over saline implants. The FDA approved the return of silicone gel breast implants, clearing them for augmentation and reconstruction procedures eight years ago. Most patients select silicone gel implants because they offer a more natural feel. Some patients prefer the newly FDA-approved cohesive silicone gel “Gummy Bear” implants for a more natural look.

FAQ

Q. Can I have a baby after tummy tuck or breast implant or breast lift?

What our experts say:

You can have a baby after a breast augmentation or abdominoplasty. We have patients who had breast augmentation earlier in life and then have a baby following that. Sometimes they don't need to have anything further done but sometimes they might need to change the implants to a slightly larger size. Sometimes they might require a mastopexy or breast lift. As far as an abdominoplasty is concerned, in general we don't recommend someone getting an abdominoplasty if they know they're going to have additional children, especially in the upcoming few years because it doesn't inhibit you from having a child but getting pregnant again will dramatically affect the appearance of your abdomen.

Q. Can I have my saline breast implants removed and then replaced with new silicone ones through the armpit incision (which is how they were put in 11 years ago)?

What our experts say:

Yes, that is possible depending on somebody who feels comfortable with the trans-axillary approach, and as long as you don't have capsular contractures or require a lift.

Q. How can I tell if I need a breast lift, a breast lift and breast implants or just breast implants? Is there an easy formula?

What our experts say:

You can simulate a lift by elevating your breasts or nipple areola and see if it feels like it's the appropriate amount of volume that you want to have. And once you see if that's an appropriate decision, if you don't feel it's enough volume, then an implant will be required. In some patients who may be deflated but don't need a lift all they need is an implant to help give them the shape and perk up their breasts. Other patients may have been deflated but also the nipple and areola are too low relative to the fold in the crease then they need a lift in conjunction with the implant.

Q. How do you decide whether to use silicone or saline breast implants? Is that the doctor's choice or the patient's?

What our experts say:

It's a decision that we make together. More than 95 percent select a silicone implant these days because it's a much more natural feeling implant. A saline implant may feel more like a bag of water and is more prone to issues with rippling than the silicone implant which has a much softer feel.

Q. Is it true that all women can achieve a flat tummy following pregnancy if they just exercise?

What our experts say:

No. This is a common misconception among husbands and trainers. There are certain physical changes, following pregnancy, that a woman may not be able to correct on her own, without surgery. An abdominoplasty may benefit many women following pregnancy if they suffer from excess fatty tissue, loose abdominal skin, stretch marks and a loose abdominal wall.

Q. Should you wait until you are in your 60s to undergo a facelift?

What our experts say:

Facial aging may present itself in one’s early 40s with signs of minimal skin laxity, jowling and deepening of the nasolabial folds. This may be exaggerated when one leans forward. Minimal facial aging can sometimes be addressed with nonsurgical options including devices such as Ultherapy, Exilis and ReFirmeTM, or with injectables including fillers and biostimulants. As aging progresses, a short-scar facelift with limited incisions may be indicated. If greater laxity of the neck skin appears, a full facelift and platysmaplasty (necklift) may be indicated. The desired goal is to achieve a beautiful, natural-looking, rejuvenated appearance with inconspicuous scars.

Q. Is there a certain amount of fat I need to get liposuction?

What our experts say:

Liposuction is for contouring. It's not ideal for weight loss. It's for contouring the stubborn areas that are resistant to exercise and diet. You don't want to remove every single fat cell. Instead you want to keep a nice thin layer of subcutaneous fat there so there isn't any dimpling and there aren't any irregularities visible.

Testimonials

Breast Augmentation Patient

M. U.

“I am enjoying being a woman every day. You are a great doctor. Thank you. You changed my life… ”

The Right Decision

N.R. - Abdominoplasty Patient

“Just a little token of my appreciation for working wonders on my tummy and for your patience… I made the right decision in choosing you.”

The Perfect Shape

S.M. - Breast Augmentation and Abdominoplasty Patient

“I could never thank Dr. Grover enough for what he has done for me and given me. He has given me the perfect shape that I have always wanted and a beautiful, hard, flat, stomach that so many people dream of having… I have had two children, and I thought that after pregnancy my breasts and stomach would never look the same. I was right. Thanks to Dr. Grover my breasts and stomach look better than they have ever looked before. Dr. Grover has given me a type of self confidence that I had never had before. I have never met such a kind, caring, respectful physician/surgeon who is not only a perfectionist, he believes in the natural look. Thanks Dr. Grover!”

From the bottom of my heart...

Anonymous Patient

“I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your amazing work. Although it has only been 2 weeks, I know that I am FINALLY happy and couldn’t look or feel any better. You and all of your staff are so great, I couldn’t have asked for a better experience or result. From the first day that I met you I knew that you would change my life. After 2 surgeries I had lost hope of ever loving my body again and felt as though I should have never had surgery to begin with. I can now say that I can look in the mirror and not cry, I absolutely love my new breasts! Thank you for your kindness and for taking the time that you did to reassure me that you could fix what my previous Doctor couldn’t. I am forever grateful to you – thank you, thank you, thank you, you are truly a one of a kind Doctor.”

The Best Investment

L.R. - Breast Augmentation Patient

“My entire experience with Dr. Grover was impeccable. The post-surgery care was by far the best I have ever received… My augmentation was the best investment that I’ve ever made!!!”

I knew from the moment I had my first visit that I was in good hands.

L.S. - Breast Augmentation Patient

“Words could never express my feelings and gratitude for the ‘miracle’ that you have performed on me. I knew from the moment I had my first visit that I was in good hands… You are a master in your profession, a miracle worker and a wonderful man! Thank you very much.”

A Positive Impact

N.Z. - Liposculpture Patient

“My experience with liposuction by Dr. Grover was an extremely positive one. My thighs were nicely shaped and I had a flat stomach for the first time in my life! After a week or so of slight bruising, there were no scars or marks left over from the surgery… Dr. Grover himself is so caring and gentle… I would not recommend anyone other than Dr. Grover for plastic surgery. I have received so many compliments and have a great body because of him! I encourage anyone who is considering liposuction to do it because it truly has a positive impact on not just your body but also boosts your self confidence and makes you feel really good about yourself!”

My first meeting with Dr. Grover

S.K. - Face Lift Patient

“I interviewed many doctors over a 2-year period about a facelift… My first meeting with Dr. Grover made me feel very confident. I liked his approach, his suggestions and his candor about what to expect…He cared that I felt confident, comfortable and clear with him and what he was going to do. More importantly, my facelift was a huge success. I look exactly as I hoped to and my recovery was quick and trouble-free. I would go to Dr. Grover again in a heartbeat.”

Nothing but Amazed

E.C. - Breast Augmentation Patient

“I have nothing but great things to say about Dr. Grover and his staff. I feel I received excellent care and the entire staff is outstanding!… I am nothing but amazed and very satisfied with my results. I would highly recommend the practice to others and look forward to coming back to you in the future.”

45-year-old Mother of 2

S.F. - Breast Lift Patient

“I am a 45-year-old mother of two teenagers… Over the course of ten years, I consulted with approximately fifteen different plastic surgeons, all of whom were highly recommended with years of experience; many of them very well known… After meeting Dr. Grover, I knew that I had finally found the right surgeon, and I scheduled my surgery after a ten-year wait!… The surgery and recovery were a breeze; easy and relatively painless… Most important of all, my results were absolutely amazing! Dr. Grover had told me that I would be very happy; however, my fantastic results far exceeded my expectations! Two weeks post-surgery, when my dressing, tape and stitches were removed, my husband took his first thorough glimpse. He told me that I now had the breasts of an 18-year-old! I was, and I continue to be astounded by the dramatic and improved difference this surgery has made. I am also thrilled to say that I have barely a hint of any scarring. I accredit these outstanding results to the precision and skill of Dr. Grover. His before, during and after care procedures are thorough and unsurpassed. I just smile and thank myself everyday for making the decision to have this surgery and for selecting Dr. Grover.”
