I went to 4 different consultations and I knew when I sat down with Dr Hardesty that he was my surgeon! He wasn't the cheapest but he also wasn't the most expensive either.... He was definitely the most thorough and genuinely cared about giving me the results I wanted and not just a "boob job"! He spent over an hour and a half with me on my initial consultation (which was free) answering all my questions being a thorough as he could possibly be, I did not get this attention from any of the other doctors that I had consultations with. Most of the other consultations I was in and out of the office in less than 15-20 minutes (I spent more time with their financial coordinators than I did with the actual doctor)! The before and after care, herbal remedies, and personal attention that were included in my procedure were amazing! Dr Hardesty even have me a personal cell number I could reach him at should I have had any complications (which due to the amazing staff, before and after care I did not have any! Which was my biggest fears). I would definitely recommend and have recommended Dr Hardesty to any person I know who's thinking about getting plastic surgery. Dr Hardesty is known as one of the best plastic surgeons in Southern California and for good reason!
Had Voluma fill in cheek bones. Debra is EXCELLENT. I am extremely pleased with my INSTANT results. Highly recommend the treatment and the technician.
