5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Bilateral Breast Augmentation- Great Experience

I thought that my 32Bs were perfect until I turned 43 years old and saw a picture of myself in a bikini. I am fit and love working out, but my chest, the one thing I could not really change with exercise, looked very unbalanced relative to the rest of my body. I never thought I would have a breast augmentation, but that picture changed my position. I did a lot of research before making the...

30 Years Old, No Kids Small Breast Augmentation, Long and Detailedreview - Indianapolis, IN

195cc/215cc Silicone gel Dr. VanNatta, Indiana So I spent A LOT of time lurking on this site so it only seems right that I write a review of my experience. I so greatly appreciated the detailed reviews that were similar to what I was hoping for. To start I have wanted boobs since I was old enough to know what boobs were. My breasts stopped growing sometime in middle school and I ended up...

Sweat Bothered - Carmel, IN

Dr Van Natta is great. He is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. He even shared thT he has tried the procedure as well so he knew what I would experience. My technician was Lisa, and she was fantastic. Great bedside keeping my mind off of any possible pain, and I barely felt a thing. I highly recommend this procedure Nd Dr Van Natta and his staff for any cosmetic experience.

I've been a Real Self reader for a few months. I couldn't bring myself to share until after my procedure. This site has been very helpful in my preparation for surgery and now post. I am 5'2, 145lbs and very active and healthy. I've had three babies (4, 6 & 8) and couldn't manage to reduce the projection of my abs. I had a huge diastasis and an umbilical hernia. I went for my first consult...

4 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

I'm 32 yo and had 2 c sections. My tummy is ugly and I'm ready for a TT - Indianapolis, IN

I had a TT with MR and lip on outer & inner thighs, flanks and abdomen on 10/15/14. I absolutely love Dr. Van Natta. When I met with him for consultation he made me feel completely comfortable. He is candid and let me know what area he thought needed attention without being pushy or making me feel badly. He suggested some lipo on out thighs because once my stomach was smaller this area would be more noticeable.. He was right! His office demeanor is fun, friendly and genuinely caring. I know his OR manner is the same! I have very little bruising and its obvious that he took his time to make sure I was in the best condition post operatively. During my follow-up he assured me once again that if I was not happy with some areas that he will fix them by doing some lipo to get rid of any extra fat deposits left behind. I have to pay for the surgery room which is $1,000 and doesn't make me happy but overall it's a good outcome. I would recommend him to anyone especially those who are having cosmetic surgery for the first time. He made me feel like I've known him for years! The only negative I have is that I felt like I didn't get a lot of aftercare instruction ... I'm sure this is because he is very confident that his patients will recover quickly and easily. Dr. Van Natta uses Exparel which made my recovery a breeze compared to some other women I know who have had this surgery. Again, just another way he goes above and beyond to make sure his patients are comfortable, and are able to get back to life as quickly as possible with fantastic results.

Fabulous Mommy Makeover! -Indianapolis, IN

Bruce Van Natta is fabulous and it takes a lot to impress me. He is superb at his skill, a true artist! He is a brilliant and progressive physician and his bed side manner is better than any physician I have encountered. All of the staff who cared for me pre op and post op were fantastic! I have recommended anyone having body work to not look beyond Dr. Van Natta and his phenomenal skills!

Amazing! - Indianapolis, IN

I had silicone implants put in by Dr. Van Natta and he's amazing! It only took him about 30 minutes to do the procedure and it wasn't that painful. I was out that night with friends, taking only ibuprofen, and was back to work the next day. It was so worth the money. Love this doctor and will certainly use him again in the future.
