Great Doctor, I would recommend him to anyone considering a tummy tuck. He has an excellent staff and they all made me feel more than comfortable, up until the last second. Even the phone calls they made to check up on me and changing my precriptions to get rid of the nausea. ***Great Staff**** . I didn't feel as if I were just another patient. He didn't seem to mind my questions :) He uses no drains and I gotta say this is a blessing. I was able to shower the next day and get around fairly well. The pain is not that bad. I take the medicine more so I can get comfortable to sleep. I am 2 days post op and can almost stand straight.

Dr. V has an awesome bedside manner, spent lots of time discussing recovery with me. He uses no drains, so I was walking my kids to school three days after. My stomach looks amazing, and he was just plain kind and attentive when I called post-procedure with questions. This seems like it came and went soo fast, in large part due to how wonderful his work was, and how accessible his staff was. Couldn't recommend him more highly. Last thing - he never pressured me to get more procedures, even though I could certainly benefit from Lipo, I didn't want it and he never indicated that my choice was wrong.

Dr. V is one of the few plastic surgeons who does the no drain tummy tuck. This requires stitching the interface of the skin along the incision line (something like that) and my incision looks so much better than many of pictures I've seen on the web. Dr. V is double board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS, www.abplsurg.org) and the American Board of Surgery (ABS, www.absurgery.org). This is a must to have a surgeon who is board certified! I interviewed one guy who insisted he was board eligible but just didn't have time to get certified--huge red flag for such a major surgery as an abdominoplasty. Also, Dr. V's staff is fantastic!

Dr Vath and his staff were all so very helpful and nice. I never felt like any question was a stupid one even if I asked it over and over. Dr Vath and his staff are the best! Nice, patient, kind. Everyone from the front desk to the back nurses to the anesthesiologist are so kind and helpful and nothing but professional.

Dr. Vath is one of the few surgeons that does the TT without drains. He is wonderful and has a great personality. He answers your questions thoroughly and has a great sense of humor. He makes you feel comfortable and gives you real expectations and listens very well to know what your goals are with the procedures you are having.

I did a lot of research online and found Dr. Vath in Golden, CO. After reading his bio and seeing his perfect reviews, I had a feeling this was the guy for me. I went to his office and discussed my goals. He was very friendly and confident. I absolutely LOVE the staff at Center for Cosmetic Surgery! They were so nice and helpful and *professional*!!! I am a very intuitive person and everything has to feel really good for me to go through with something so major. I never had a moment of doubt after leaving their office.

I did extensive research on surgeons in Colorado with advanced facial surgery training and certifications. I was very impressed by this medical group (The Center for Cosmetic Surgery).

I chose Dr. Vath because he does the "no drain" tummy tuck procedure and his patients seemed to heal much faster. I'm a mom, so I need to be up and running (figuratively speaking) as quickly as possible. I also found him through reviews on this website and I really appreciated that extra help.

I have four friends that have had Mommy Makeovers done by him. They all look amazing. You can barely see their scars! Very thin line, you have to look for! He's very nice, no pressure at all. I expected him to tell me all that he could do to "fix" me. He didn't at all. He is a Dad, and just a normal guy. I feel very comfortable with him!

Lots of on-line research both about the procedure and Dr. Vath. I found nothing but positive reviews about him and his clinic. I also see where a whopping 90+% of people who have had the mini-lift would do it again and recommend it to the family and friends.

I started out by looking on the Internet and I was so impressed with Dr. Vath's post-op photos I just knew he would be great. In addition, I was impressed with his credentials, which are as good as they get. There were enough photos of so many surgeries, I was sure he was consistent in his results. Sometimes doctors only post the top 10 of 1000 surgeries and it's hard to tell if the patients are likely to get similar results. Do a ton of research before you decide. Chose a highly qualified surgeon with the right training.
