I recently has some cosmetic work done by Dr Bhargava (cosmetic injectables) and I honestly couldn't be happier. He is very much for the natural look which is exactly what I wanted and I feel great. Couldn't be happier with the results. I also had some skin tags removed after pregnancy and again happy with the results.
