5 out of 5 stars Vanquish

Needed to Get Rid of a Few Extra Inches - Santa Barbara, CA

Dr. Handel was friendly and informative. He explained all my options in detail and gave me a great amount of his time. Please see my experience below. I'm 30 years old exercise regularly and eat mostly healthy. I had a few extra inches I couldn't get rid of so I began my research, thank you Realself for all the info! I was looking for something that I didn't need to go under anesthesia for and found Coolsculpt and Vanquish. I considered Coolsculpt but liked the idea of warmth so I chose Vanquish. Dr. Handels office offered I free consult so I met with him and his staff, I was given the details and told I would see my full results 6-8 weeks after I completed all 4 treatments. You always wonder if something so easy and painless will really work, but I booked my 4 treatments and received their special. Each session was painless, I experienced a warm sensation similar to a tanning bed and noticed what they called "hot spots." There was a girl in the room to make sure I was comfortable and a fan is available if you get too warm. Thru my 4 treatments I was measured and weighed each time, I did lose several cm during my 4 weeks but had to remind myself to be patient! About 6 weeks after I noticed my jeans fitting better and my belt buckle had to be tightened! I'm so excited I feel great! I would highly recommend Vanquish to anyone who needs to rid a few inches and does not want to go under.

"57 Year Old Mom Who Breast Feed Baby 20 Years Ago. Breast Look Tired and Tissue Had Changed over Time.

From my first phone call to Dr. Handel, the staff treated me with respect and they made me feel so comfortable. Communication between Dr. Handel and his staff were amazing. I went into my procedure feeling confident and so excited to see results. Dr. Handel and his staff spent so much time with me and we went over everything.

35 Years Old from 14 Years with Saline to Brand New Silicone with Dr. Neal Handel...and Sientra - Santa Barbara, CA

I had a couple of visits with two doctors in Santa Barbara, CA. One of them was Dr. Neal Handel. My choice after meeting both was instantly Dr. Handel. HIs "bedside manner" is remarkable. And unlike the other doctor, he actually sat and talked with me one on one, like I was a long time patient. He made me feel so comfortable and assured that all would be well, and it definitely was. I highly recommend Dr. Handel for his comfort, reliability, and knowledge in this line of work.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Amazing Surgeon, Amazing Results - Sherman Oaks, CA

I highly recommend Dr. Handel to anyone who is considering having plastic surgery. Dr. Handel did my breast augmentation. During my initial consult Dr. Handel and his lovely office staff were WONDERFUL about answering all of my questions and helping me to select the size and type of implant that I wanted. They spent a lot of time with me and I greatly appreciate not being rushed through the process (this is, after all, my boobs we are talking about!!) All of my follow up visits were easy to schedule and I NEVER had to wait more than 5 minutes to see the doctor. I loathe waiting in doctors’ offices past my appointment time; it is one of my biggest pet peeves. So it really means a lot to me that Dr. Handel and his staff have never wasted my time or made me wait. Dr. Handel did such a careful job closing the incision that I will barely have a scar. Dr. Handel gave me my dream breasts!!
