Jade Toy, November 2019
More than 2 years after my rhinoplasty, I am so delighted with the results. Dr. Pfulg has changed my life in such a positive way and I left this clinic with an unbelievable experience. You get what you pay for! The service is impeccable and I felt very reassured and comfortable throughout the entire experience. The food, rooms and staff made the surgery all the more comfortable, I felt like I was on holiday! I understood that my particular rhinoplasty would be complicated and Dr. Pfulg didn't make any promises he couldn't guarantee, which I appreciated. I was also treated by Dr. Léger for prominent veins under my eyes, he is also a lovely Dr. who is attentive and extremely friendly. The procedure was very effective. Lastly I want to thank Isabelle, the hospitality manager, for being so kind to my family and I! I can only recommend this clinic based on my positive experience. Thank you!

I experienced aesthetic treatments in several clinics, Laclinic is by far the best! The doctors are competent and really know what they do. I feel that I can fully trust their advice. The results are satisfying each time
The facial care in their Helena Rubinstein institut is just as good as the view. Irène is not of the beauticians that you can't miss! Highly recommended!
