50 Years Old, 1 Child

Dr. Fariaswas so very attentive to my concerns and helped me relaxed. He also called the same day as surgery and the next day to check on me. Needless to say that goes a long way with bedside manners, couldn't ask for anyone better. Dr. Farias even left his number if I have any questions or concerns, now that's an awesome doctor!

Two weeks and significant change in body already!! - Downers Grove, IL

After searching and searching for a PS I went to insidelookmd for a consult with Dr. Paresi and I knew he was the one to make me over. He and his staff are wonderful. Its only been two weeks since my procedure and the look of my body has already made a significant change. Can't wait until all the swelling is completely gone. Glad I choose insidelookmd to make me over.

Results Exceeded My Expectations / Back To Work One Week Later! - Saint Louis, MO

I chose this provider primarily because of the location. I was fortunate enough to have a gifted surgeon along with the convenient location. Pre-Surgery, Dr. Farias was extremely patient with answering my questions and those of my husband too. My experience from beginning to end has been fabulous!

26 Yr Old, Very Athletic with Problem Areas (Bra Pad, Flank, Lower Abs) - Schaumburg, IL

5 days Post Op so I cant give a 100% rating on aftercare follow-up but so far they have been great. The day after surgery I got a phone call checking in on me and 2nd day post op I had a question and they were very attentive and helpful. Dr. Farias and I met for the first time on the day of the procedure and he was very detailed in how it would work and that safety is NUMBER ONE. He was able to get all 3 areas done in one session and stayed at the max amount of local anesthesia. When I emphasized where I wanted to see the greatest change he was very certain that we could achieve that. I'm vey excited to see myself in 5/6 weeks. I am also interested in Breast Augmentation and will def. be consulting at Lift Body Center when the time comes.

What a Wonderful Difference - St Louis, MO

I explained to the doctor exactly the goals I wanted to achieve and the changes I wanted to see, and my doctor not only listened, but also did precisely what I wanted done. The results are dramatic. When compared with the "before" pictures, the "after" pictures - which are untouched and were taken in precisely the same location and in the same positions as the "before" pictures - show me the way I looked 10 years ago. I look much more like I feel now. I don't look like my grandmother anymore. What a relief!
