I visited Dr Lakshman's office to have stitches removed from my chin, and he instead recommended what I am certain was unnecessary and over-the-top surgery. I got 7 stitches from the ER and thought a plastic surgeon would be the best place to go to have them removed. My dentist had seen my chin and said that I was healing nicely. Dr Lakshman, the next day, said that the ER did a "terrible job" and that my wound would "fall apart" if he took the stitches out. He said he needed to put me under anesthesia and and "clean it up" and scheduled a surgery at a surgical center. (The surgery center called me in advance-not to warn me about surgery with a concussion but to aggressively ask for my credit card.) Instead, I went to my primary care doctors office and had my stitches removed without incident. They were impressed at how well I had healed and actually commented on what a nice job the ER had done with the stitches. Nothing "fell apart" and there's hardly any scaring.

I am a client of Dr Lakshman's for injectibles. He has a soft, artistic hand and impeccable bedside manner. I absolutely love my results! He listens to my requests and understands the artistry of injectibles! His staff is always kind and cordial. I highly recommend Dr L for botox or for any injectibles! I love Pasadena Surgeons!

I was referred to Dr. Lakshman by another doctor at Glendale Adventist Medical Center who said that Dr. Lakshman is the doctor she would go to if she ever needed a procedure done on her face. I like to fact that Dr. Lakshman worked with me as a cash patient and did a great job removing a wart on my face and the scar is almost undetectable. I recommend Pasadena Surgeons to anyone needing plastic or cosmetic surgery.
