"Dr. Marisa Lawrence is very knowledgeable. Unlike many plastic surgeons that they are more concern of making money. But with Dr. Lawrence, she explained my option and she didn't push me to do more than I need. Her pricing is very reasonable. She was so calm and not in a hurry at all when I went to see her for consultation. Looking forward for the day of my surgery and to see the result of her work. I wish I found her 12 years ago and I could have made a better decision and avoided to have another surgery 12 years later. If you are looking to have a cosmetic surgery or to remove your implant, please do yourself a favor and make an appointment for consultation and you will know it yourself what I wrote here. "
