5 out of 5 stars Laser Liposuction
I had my consultation with Dr. Hagstrom. From the moment I met him his confidence put me at ease . The staff and Dr. Hagstrom made me feel very comfortable, answered all the questions I had. Dr. Hagstrom went over my expectations and explained after having two kids I would have some loose skin which I thought would be way worse.

Dr. Hagstrom made me feel so comfortable and relaxed, I was a nervous wreck to begin with but after meeting with Dr. Hagstrom and his staff it put my mind at ease. He answered all my questions, he made suggestions and recommendations, which I fully agreed with. After meeting with Dr. Hagstrom after my pre-op appointment I had full confidence in him. My surgery experience from beginning to end...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Fat Transfer
My overall experience with Dr. Hagstrom has been excellent. I've met with a few doctors and he's the one I felt had the most experience and I just had to trust my instincts. He is extremely knowledgeable and very responsive to all my questions. The experience of the surgery itself was great, right down to the care in the hospital and the anesthesiologist. His staff is also wonderful, Michael and Darren, who have been very helpful with the whole process. The office setting is lovely too, on top of it all. Overall, I would recommend him to my family and friends. He is a top notch Plastic Surgeon with a great sense of beauty with all the skill to back it up. Much respect and admiration for Dr. Hagstrom.
5 out of 5 stars Chin Liposuction
I am very impressed with the amount of expertise Dr. Hagstrom has! He is very friendly and I feel like he genuinely cares about me. He seems like the type of Doctor who would tell you truthfully if you were good candidate or not and I feel like I can trust him. He was the first Doctor I had a consultation with and after hearing about his impressive educational background and all the years he has been a top surgeon in San Francisco, I knew he was the best choice. During surgery he was professional and worked quickly but also made sure I was comfortable and talked to me like a friend. Michael has been there every step of the way with me and I don't know what I would've done without him during the procedure. He is an incredible asset to the office! He has made me feel so welcome and he is such a good listener and held my hand through the whole surgery. He is reassuring and so helpful and knowledgable and I am so happy that he has been there during this process! Darren is such a sweetheart, as well. He's such a pleasure to see when you walk in the office. Overall, this whole office creates a feeling of warmth and welcoming. If I ever needed another procedure done, this would be my first choice.

Dr. Hagstrom performed liposuction under my eyes, my jaw and chin. The results were way, WAY better than I had dared to hope for. The shape of my face is now EXACTLY the way it was when I was young. He re-sculpted my jawline and gave me back my beauty. Since then, I have been told numerous times that I look like I am in my forties. They cannot believe my age. The work is so subtle and so good that no one knows that I have had work done on my face. Dr. Hagstrom has genius hands. No one will ever touch my face or body but him. I will owe him a profound debt of gratitude forever. I am beautiful again.
5 out of 5 stars Vein Treatment
I met Dr. Hagstrom a couple years ago via a Botox referral. Since then, I've also had lip fillers (Juvaderm) and a capillary treatment on my nose. This review, while touching on the procedures, is equally about the service, professionalism, and unparallelled expertise of Dr. Hagstrom and his staff. First, he's a GREAT guy and has the best bedside manner I've experienced with a doctor, regardless of practice or specialty. His patients are individuals and Dr. Hagstrom shines in this regard. He is thorough, honest, ethical, and well-trained/educated in a wide spectrum of procedures and products. He also gets the psychology of cosmetic enhancements. The first thing he'll do when he meets you is ask questions about you, your lifestyle, and directly, what your thoughts are about changes you want to make. He will respond with your options, pros and cons of each, and even photos of work he's done. He is realistic about the limitations of cosmetic enhancements and shares that information with his patients. Dr. Hagstrom's support in his practice is fantastic. Michael is astounding. His knowledge, assistance, and calm demeanor are awesome when you're laying there getting stuck with needles. I'm convinced he can make any situation comfortable and entertaining! These two together are a dream team, no exaggeration. And Dr. Hagstrom is very, very funny. I can't give enough accolades for this practice.

Great service! Understanding, smiling. He takes the time to very thoroughly show us what's going to be done and how it's going to be done. I felt very comfortable about the surgery, no worries, and felt well prepared for it. Michael was there for me as well. I could call him at any time, day and night! I wish I would have done it 10 years ago! I very highly recommend Dr. Hagstrom!
5 out of 5 stars Facial Reconstructive Surgery
Dr. Hagström is very thorough and listens carefully to the patient, and he made me feel that he cares very much about me as an individual. It really meant a lot to me that he visited me before the surgery in the pre-operation room before surgery.
5 out of 5 stars Botox
Dr. Mats Hagstrom is extremely caring, professional and an expert at what he does. I started seeing Dr. Hagstrom as a botox patient, but confidently considered him as the doctor I would choose once I decided on a face lift...easiest decision I ever made. As a botox patient (I had had several procedures in the past, from different doctors) I was extremely delighted with the results. Pre, during and post procedure he took the time to explain what he was doing and why, what to expect, and always made sure my comfort was addressed. Dr. Hagstrom takes whatever time is necessary to assure your questions are answered. Results were always natural, but effective. Once I decided to proceed with a face lift, it was Dr. Hagstrom whom I chose. The results were incredibly natural, but beautiful. I will be writing a review specifically to that procedure. I feel so lucky to have found Dr. Hagstrom and his staff. Trusting someone with you face, no matter how 'minor' the procedure is a major commitment, and a relief when you feel you have found the best. I have confidentially referred several people here, and would continue to do so.

My 1st visit with Dr. Hangstrom was AWESOME. My experience with staff was excellent, his office location is beautiful and cozy. Prior to visiting Dr. Hangstom, I had no idea who he was; I'm very happy I chose him to perform my surgery. I would recommend him to ALL my family and friends; including you if you're reading this message. I promise; you'll be very happy with your results. I feel more...

I have a few thoughts on the weight loss.Having done thousands of these procedures in the last five years, we feel that we can speak with some authority on the subject.While liposuction is generally not prescribed as a treatment for obesity, most patients who get liposuction are somewhat overweight.From having met thousands of people interested in liposuction, I have had ample opportunity to talk to many people about their struggle with weight, and a few repeating patterns seemed to...
