5 stars

“My experience with Dr. Taylor has been nothing less than amazing and I am so happy I made the trip from Germany to Pasadena to see him. Unfortunately here in Germany it is commonplace to find previous liposuction patients living with disfigurations from doctors that do not know what they are doing. Following my procedure I returned home and met with an endermologist (highly suggested by Dr. Taylor) who told me that in her professional career she has never seen such extraordinary work by a cosmetic surgeon. I cannot thank Dr. Taylor enough, he has completely changed my life for the better. I would recommend him to anyone. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!“ – K.W.
