After breast feeding my two boys for 2 full years 10 years ago, my breast size shrunk from 34C to 34B with less upper volume. I was not happy the way I looked and I want to go back to who I used to be. I am a person with lots of research before I proceed any cosmetic surgery so I interviewed 7 plastic surgeons who are famous in breast implant in Southern California. I went from Beverly Hill to Long beach but couldn’t decided who to go because even though famous breast implant doctors didn’t give me confidence to make up my mine. I know I am picky but I had to because without confidence I couldn’t commit myself for this risk which could cause many problems later on. Even Dr. Ho, I interviewed her twice and when I finally decided to do with her, she had to leave for her pregnancy. What a timing!! So I had to wait almost 3 month and got a surgery after she got back from her leave. She was amazing!! She is a true doctor who really cares a patient. My surgery went well and it’s been a month now and I love my new 34D breast. I love the shape and recovery time was really short! Everything was perfect and I am so thankful now!! Strongly recommend to anyone for Breast implant!
I’ve had my lip injected a few times in the past by different doctors/ nurses and my experience with Dr. Ho is by far the best! With other clinicians, I felt like I experienced a lot more pain and bruising and the lip is either overfilled or underfilled or the shape was somehow a bit off. Dr. Ho took her time to listen to my concerns and gave me her professional opinion which I really appreciated. She has great aesthetic sense and most of all she is super skillful! She gave me just enough local anesthetic to make me comfortable without being too swollen. And then she used a blunt needle / “cannula?” to inject the filler into my lip. I had very minimal bruising and zero lumpiness. I highly recommend her for any filler injection. She’s super talented!
Just had my second procedure with Dr. Goretti this Tuesday. Always have a great experience with her. Warm personality, superb artistry, and always can suggest what would be better for you (which is very important for me, because I often do not know what exactly I want in terms of aesthetics). I have no reservations in recommending Dr. Ho!
Had my breast augmentation with Dr. Ho and couldn’t be happier. She was always patient and made sure my concerns were addressed. Even post operatively, I always felt taken care of. Would recommend 100%!! Thank you Dr. Ho!!
If you are in Southern California and are overwhelmed by the sea of plastic surgeons, let me save you the trouble…Dr. Ho is the best there is. I’ve had multiple disastrous surgeries with other plastic surgeons and I wouldn’t put anyone else through that heartache. I feel extremely lucky to have found Dr. Ho. What’s different about her is that she really takes the time to understand your motivation for surgery and provide her artistic as well as professional recommendation. Plastic surgery is an art as well as a science. Any surgeon can sell you on procedures, but the good ones will know what procedures will actually bring harmony to your features. I was very nervous to undergo more procedures to try to repair the bad work, but she really put me at ease by taking the time to understand my history and discuss solutions. This was way different than all my other consultations with surgeons that could’ve moonlighted as car salesmen. I was surprised at how quickly I healed after surgery. I expected to look like I had been hit by a truck since that was how I looked after my previous surgeries. However, after surgery with Dr. Ho, I just looked like I ate a bunch of cupcakes. I went to dinner later that day and forgot I had surgery a few hours prior. A previous surgeon told me I must have some healing disorder but now I know this was untrue. The real difference was the skill of the surgeon. My mom now says I look like myself again, which is the best thing to hear following years of looking like I had been in an accident. She’s even interested in getting some work done as she ages! I will let no other surgeon touch her – even if Dr. Ho moves to Antarctica. If you’re still unsure, take a look at her before and after photos. The woman is a miracle worker.
Excellent doctor. I did my lower eye lids with Dr. Ho last year in November, and I had a very amazing experience. Dr. Ho and the staffs did a very good care for me. I had no pain at all during and after the procedure, and I’m very satisfied with the result.
I have had several treatments with Dr Goretti Ho Taghva. Mostly filler injections such as Juvederm and Voluma but I have to say I had wonderful experiences and resurface and every time. I am a 51 year old white male and had lost serious volume in my cheeks. Wasn’t sure about any kind of plastic surgery or fillers and was very sceptical about getting anything done. After my consultation with her I went ahead with the procedure because she made me feel comfortable and assured me I that I had nothing to worry about. My results have been amazing each time and I will never use another doctor for any kind of cosmetic procedures other than Dr Ho. She is amazing and I highly recommend her!
Jane As the Wave Plastic Surgery Consult, she made sure to be present to check in with me during every transition of my process including both pre op consultations, the day of surgery, and my last day in LA. She went over all the legalities, what to expect for treatment and care, and upfront with the pricing breakdown. She provided her contact info if I had any questions at any point through the process. She was great! Dr.Ho Taghva Having a complicated health history, I the better part of a year searching for a plastic surgeon that I could trust. I researched on doctors who not only had an artistic eye, but who would also take the time to monitor my health throughout the process – Dr. Ho Taghva was that doctor. As an out of town patient, she was very thorough and concise during both my consultations (one via Skype and another in-person the day before surgery); it was blatantly obvious she had done the procedure numerous times and had lots of experience. I trusted her judgment without hesitation. Both Dr.Ho Taghva and Jane notified me on what to expect in the following weeks post op and included a packet with a write up of all the information pertaining to the procedure. They made it clear not to hesitate to contact them if I had any further questions during my recuperation time, which I greatly appreciated. The day of surgery, Dr.Ho Taghva took the time to make sure I was comfortable and relaxed all throughout the process – I felt nothing other than a subtle tug once around my eyelid. My post ops went smoothly, wherein Dr. Ho Taghva inspected my eyes and notified me of any expected symptoms during the healing process. I made sure to follow the post op instructions to a T. The last day in LA I had my stitches removed and Dr.Ho made sure to explain in detail the steps for proper care, instructing me on post op treatments (Kenalog shots + massage). She even provided me with her email for a 1, 2, and 3 month follow up for photos, questions, and updates; which I truly appreciated. My eyes have healed just as Dr.Ho said they would. A couple of months post op, they look wonderful!
I had an upper blepharoplasty for sagging skin on my upper eyelids. I am 47 and feel that I’ve aged pretty well except for my eyes making me look tired — and yes, probably older as well. When I first started thinking about this procedure I looked on RealSelf to get an idea about the procedure and how people felt about the results after getting it done. I sifted through dozens of reviews and photos of the procedure. Watched plenty of youtube videos of people who had the procedure. I was ready to get it done but knew that the most important thing for me was to make sure I felt confident in the physician I chose since this was my eyes (or eyelids) that would be operated on. What caught my eye about Dr. Ho was that it appeared from all the reviews that she had quite a lot of experience doing blepharoplasties — both Asian and Caucasian patients. I wanted a doctor with experience. I also was looking for plastic surgeons who worked on the face and not specifically oculoplastics. Since my procedure was fairly straight forward, I wanted someone who would be able to view my facial features as a whole and make recommendations. When I had my consultation I met with Dr. Ho. I liked how she came off straight forward and down to earth and skilled at what she did. I also liked that she had an excellent educational background and training. At the end of the day it was the fact that she had so much experience with upper blephs and what I felt was an “eye” for how to do the procedure and make it look good and natural. Fast foward 6 weeks, and I am very happy with the results. I look refreshed and like myself only more awake and yes, probably younger as a result. I would definitely recommend Dr. Ho. I believe she is honest and ethical. You don’t have to fear that you will are going to get additional procedures you don’t need. She is good at what she does which is the most important thing. I would trust her with other procedures as well if I needed or wanted to get something done because I have confidence in her ability and intellect that she knows what she’s doing. It’s very important that you trust your doctor, and this is what I felt and thought when I met and spoke with Dr. Ho.
