5 out of 5 stars Neck Lift

Better Than I Expected!

After years of watching my neck get more and more crepey and spending hundreds of dollars on various creams that never made a difference I decided to finally get it fixed. When I first visited the office for my free consultation I was greeted with a very friendly staff. The doctor that met with me, Dr. Carlos L. Farias, was very informative and knowledgeable. He answered all of my questions...

32 Years Old 1 Child Had a C- Section and Excessive Belly Fat. Illinois, IL

My motivation was myself I was tired of the stubborn belly fat around my midsection. I love my results I feel like a new women. I was very nervous about getting the procedure done. I had very little down time! I was back at work within the first week. The aftercare medication was very good it helped me manage the slight pain

5 out of 5 stars Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL)

50 Years Old, 1 Child

I have to say I was a nervous reck, but Dr.Farias made me feel so comfortable, so attentive to my needs or any pain I may have experienced. Very little at that. I wanted this or so long, heard about sonobello and I am excited to say I made the right and safest choice with laser-lipo. Thank you so much Dr.Farias!

Living my Life Like It's Golden

I was tired of wearing elastic banded clothing to camouflage that I had 'no waistline' but actually a kangaroo pooch. Spanx offered no remedy, I decided to do something about it and went for a consultation and the before pictures convinced me. I have no regrets the staff and Dr Farias are the epitome of professionalism.

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

My experience was fantastic. I had gastric bypass surgery 6+ years ago and felt that I had more pronounced jowls than I should have had at my age. I had been interested in the procedure several years ago and decided to take the plunge. I'm thrilled with the results and feel they have exceeded expectations.Today I go for my final follow-up appointment. I can't wait to see the before and after...

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

I'm really just hoping to eliminate my problem areas so I can finally compete next year in my first bodybuilding competition. I eat very healthy and lift 5-6x a week but seem to have impossibly stubborn fat since its been there since I was a child. Always a chunky kid I lost 50lbs on my own but having issues with these last few areas. This is my first time having a surgery of any kind, I am...

What a Wonderful Difference - St Louis, MO

Pros - I look so much better, and people consistently ask if I have "lost weight" or if I've "changed my hairstyle." They don't know what is different, but they can tell that SOMETHING is different. The results are dramatic, and yet still natural looking. The outcome is exactly what I had envisioned - the procedure gave me back about 10 years, and now my few...

2 Years Later, Scars Getting MORE Visible As Time Goes by - Clayton, MI

First of all my sister and I traveled 4 hrs. to Clayton, Mo. for the procedure in Oct. of 2007. We were told we could return to Kansas City the next day, I asked if I could drive, and I was informed I could, no big deal. We were not informed YOU NEED someone taking care of you, because you are so drug up the first 48 to 72 HRS. Thank God we decided to travel by train, the next day...
