The reason that I first reached out to Dr. Colen was for her great reviews... I am happy to say I was not disappointed. I had my surgery scheduled on July 8th and I have to say...the outcome is great! I have family and friends who have seen the results and are asking for Dr. Colen’s contact info. Book your first appointment, you won’t be disappointed.

Dr. Colen’s work is great. I’m 20 years old and 2 weeks out of my surgery and I’m so happy with my results. I never thought my boobs could look like this but thanks to Dr. Colen they look amazing. The nursing staff is just as wonderful and always makes me feel comfortable in the office. Overall my experience with Dr. Colen and her staff was wonderful and I am so excited with my results.
