5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck Revision

Best Cosmetic Surgeon...EVER! - Golden, CO

Dr. Vath is compassionate, honest, and a top-notch clinician. If surgery isn't in your best interest he will be 100% honest w/ you. If you do choose him he will give you his best...I don't think he could do anything but that!

Loose Skin No More! - Golden, CO

There are not enough positive adjectives to describe the experience I had at the Center for Cosmetic Surgery. Dr. Vath is fantastic! I knew the minute I sat down with him, that I had found my surgeon. He is professional, personable, caring, very knowledgeable, and skilled. It was about my goals and desired outcomes. I am a 51 year old woman (though small in frame) that had excess skin from...

Finally; Jeans and I Can Renew Our Friendship - Golden, CO

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.

Tummy Tuck - Golden, CO

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.

No Drain Tummy Tuck is Way to Go! Plus Breast Lift W/ Implants

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, and the American Board of Surgery (ABS, 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!

My Tummy Tuck Was So Worth It! - Colorado

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.

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Juviderm - Colorado

Fantastic! I was treated with injections around my mouth and above my cheek bones. I used a qualified and experienced nurse at a plastic surgeon's office. She didn't overfill and the treatment brought fullness back to face.

5 out of 5 stars Pearl Laser

Pearl Laser - youthful glow is back!

Here's my story: I was ill for a very long time, gained 80 lbs and the skin on my face was blotchy, dull, and just looked unhealthy. By 2010, I had recovered from my illness, lost over 60 lbs, but still the skin on my face wasn't bouncing back like the rest of me. I decided to have the Pearl Laser done in August 2010 by a practioner that I researched and trusted. The treatment...
