After interviewing 4 plastic surgeons for a breast lift, Dr. Canoun was, without question, the most in-tune with the patient. He listened attentively, examined carefully and gave a thorough explanation of what to expect. The receptionist, Kathy, will make your experience comfortable too. She’s responsive to the patient and efficient. You won’t be dismissed or left unattended.

I was particularly impressed with Dr. Canoun the day of surgery as I watched him precisely determine the outline of the incision. Along with his confidence and caring bedside manner, I knew I was in the best of hands.

It’s only been a month, but I’m thrilled with my results. I had thought about a breast lift for ten years; and now I’m so pleased that I waited to have Dr. Canoun do the surgery.
