I had the Best Possible Experience in Every Way | Minnesota

We often receive the feedback and testimonials from our cosmetic patients. This is one of them we received yesterday. We are proud that we provided high quality cosmetic care.

“I believe that I had the best possible experience in every way from the initial consultation, the procedure, the preparation, and after visits.

When I came for the consultation it had taken a year to get the courage to do so, and I wasn’t set on any decision, but Dr. Shu was very kind, engaging, and explained simply what he recommended, and why.

Emily was very pleasant, kind, reassuring: the preparation was explained and all the instructions well written.

The procedure itself was very impressive, and interesting. It was then when I realized all that was involved, and all the skill involved to do this!

It was then also I probably realized the discount he so kindly gave me especially when I got off the table and saw all the equipment used on me! Wow! And also how personable both Dr. Shu and Emily were, and the sense of humor! And Emily also writing down the name of the classical music we listened to by Yo-Yo Ma, so I could purchase on i-tunes~ Such warmth and kindness all around, which I’ll always remember and appreciate”. – Dan H

Dr. Shu Performs Liposuction on Himself (DIY Liposuction) | Minnsota

In an ambitious feat, Dr. Shu performed a liposuction procedure on himself on April 30th. Dr. Shu took the role of both the patient and the surgeon, removing his own fat from his abdomen without the assistance of nurses or another surgeon.

However, the main purpose of performing a liposuction on himself was, first and foremost, to experience the liposuction procedure from the patient’s perspective. In doing so, Dr. Shu gained a better understanding of what a patient undergoing liposuction may experience, allowing him to provide better care for his patients. This is not the first time Dr. Shu has performed one of his procedures on himself. In the past, he has also performed a gastroscopy (EGD) on himself – one in 2006.
