What Our Patients Say About Us
for 10 years, every single day, i asked God to send me an angle to save my soul and he sent Dr. John Shamoun. Such a beautiful angle.
I know several girls that have had breast augmentations from Doc shamoun and he’s by far the best plastic surgeon around would highly recommend him! He’s very particular and confident with his work.
Dr. Shamoun is a great surgeon, very busy but takes him to care about people. Another surgeon referred me to him for a breast revision and Shamoun did a great job back in 2019! Thanks for having an impact in my life!
Did a beautiful breast augmentation for me in 2001 and it still looks great! They look so natural. They look so great that people wonder if they are implants but aren’t sure. Money well spent!
