    Dr Shankar was very professional and understood my concerns, and left me confident he would be able to help me find the results i was looking for with surgery. He was also very accommodating with my schedule and desire to have my procedure done quickly. His team was wonderful to work with and the plastic surgeon he teamed me up with was equally competent. His nurse Mariana was there for me every step of the way. I could not recommend Dr Shankar and his team enough.
