5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
Dr Place and staff were outstanding. The original consult was great. Dr Place made me feel comfortable and confident in her abilities. The recovery was challenging but worth it. The staff was very attentive to my needs. This was a life changing event for me and I couldn't be more happy with the results.
1 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants
I was so excited to finally have the procedure done. After having my daughter, my breasts needed it. My results were HORRIBLE if you can even call them results. After all of the healing was said and done, they were EXACTLY the same as before, only now I have the most horrendous scars. I confronted Dr.Place about this issue and she completely brushed me off. I left in tears. Paying for this...
5 out of 5 stars miraDry
MiraDry works! I had the miraDry procedure on my armpits a few months ago at Dr. Place office in San Ramon. I am a very active person and I sweat a lot! From sweating, I have ruined tshirts, my confidence level was down. During interviews and meetings I actually pushed sweat through a sport coat on multiple occasions. Pre: I went into the San Ramon office in the morning, (I recommend an...
5 out of 5 stars Lower Face Lift
I am 50 years old and suddenly my neck was sagging and so was my face. Everything about the procedure was explained to me clearly and I went into surgery with a positive attitude and complete confidence. I got exactly what I wanted and couldn't be happier with the results. I have recommended Michelle to several people already !
5 out of 5 stars Mini Lift
I had a face lift 20 years ago out of state and needed to freshen up! I wanted to look my age but was concerned another procedure would have me looking like I'd been through a wind tunnel! Dr. Place reassured me that I would have a natural look and sure enough, only seven weeks after the surgery I couldn't be happier! My recovery was much faster than I imagined and the results were even...
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
I workout regularly and could not get rid of my tummy. I felt a TT would just give me that final bit of fitness I lacked. I had a TT four months ago and couldn't be more pleased. I had it four months ago and so thrilled with the results. I have already noticed the amazing difference in clothes and the look of my stomach. I was so nervous about the procedure and there were times it was...
5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
My face was disfigured, because of my nose. The tip of my nose was leaning on my skin and I looked terrible. I am older and trying to get a job, but people would always see my nose problem. My nose had a prior Rhinoplasty from another surgeon and Dr. Place fixed this. This surgery has given me my life.
5 out of 5 stars miraDry
Same story as usual, always had horrible sweating issues, going on about 10 years now. Couldn't wear anything but tank tops and black. Went to get miraDry and couldn't have had a better experience. Loved the doctor, the office, and the entire staff! Made it as comfortable as getting tons of shots in your pits can be. After the shots I couldn't feel anything and it was done and over with in...
4 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting
I am petite - 5" 110 lbs. so this may not help others but here is my story. I work out 5 - 6 days a week for an hour and burn 700+ calories a day. I eat well and I am 50. I have had a stomach for the last 10 years (2 kids). I did liposuction 6 years ago but it did not correct all of the fat on my stomach. I just really hated the extra roll. I did cool sculpt in October of this year and I...
5 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting
I had the procedure done at the beginning of May. The procedure was more painful than I had anticipated, as was the downtime. I was very nervous for the first four weeks. My stomach was swollen and tender. My clothes didn't fit, and I was discouraged. However, all of that changed once I hit the six week mark! I literally woke up one morning with the flattest tummy that I have since...
