The "Real Deal" - Minneapolis, MN

This was a very personal and spiritual decision...

This was a very personal and spiritual decision for me, one that took 26 yrs to make. I have been an athlete my whole life and I never developed like the other girls. I love to dress up, wear 5in heels and go out on the town. I have never felt sexy in any of my clothes. My struggle was why would I alter my God given body and the guilt of spending that kind of money on myself. How selfish I must be, but after many years, my husband telling me it was my decision and that he supported me either way (and that when we are 70 we wouldn't miss the $$) I decided to have the procedure done.

I researched several different doctors for about a period of 3 years. I was given a recommendation for Dr Tholen and after reading his profile felt like he was a family man, a humanitarian and he had so much educational experience to offer and seemed like the right fit for me. Dr T made me feel comfortable, he listened to me, he did not try to pressure or sway my decision and I totally gelled with his personality. He is kind, funny, professional and my end results also prove him to be a master as what he does:) I am very happy in my decision making process and would highly recommend Dr T and his staff.

My decision was for the silicone and sub-muscular. I still want to run and lift and decided for my lifestyle, that would be the best choice for me.

When you meet Dr Tholen and his staff, you know you are in the right place. The professionalism, knowledge and ability to communicate to you as a patient is awesome. But what makes him so special is he is so genuine in his approach, respectful and sensitive to your situation and has a great since of humor. He just makes you feel comfortable and in good hands. He has surrounded himself with an amazing staff that makes you feel welcomed and special as soon as you walk through their doors.
