51 Years Old 2 Kids Weight Loss of About 100 Lbs - Lexington, KY

Dr. Wells is the Very Best Surgeon I would highly recommend him if you are considering any cosmetic surgery to go for a consultation. His nurse Sandy is wonderful I felt totally comfortable they both went over all the risks I seen a video and Dr. Wells explained everything in terms that I understood. I am so happy with my new look, I cant believe what a great job even my scars are very small. I have one place on the back of my hip that he will take care of after I am healed. I have never felt so confident. I have another consultation with Dr. Wells in January, I would like to discuss him removing the skin on my upper legs and if I can afford it I would love to have a face lift. I will never go anywhere else if you are considering any cosmetic surgery I highly recommend Dr. Wells. Everyone in his office is so friendly and very professional they are all willing to help with any thing you need.

1 out of 5 stars Botox

36 Old - Lexington, KY

I went there to maintain my Botox. They had me waiting around 2 hrs. It was $10. 50 per unit. I did 20. Susan Wells try to push Voluma on me. I was interested but didn't like they price. I syringe was 800. Second one 700. She also pushed a retinol cream on me I ended up buying. She made me feel uncomfortable. She acted she was too busy just to do my Botox I should buy more of their services....

5 out of 5 stars Arm Lift

Showing off my arms at 54 years of age

Simply AMAZING!!! My arms have bothered me since having children! I've always had unwanted fatty pockets by my arm pits. I've not worn sleeveless tops in years. Dr. Wells has literally given me a new lease on life! I had a Brachioplasty (Arm Lift & Liposuction) August 2016. I proudly went out to dinner last Saturday (July 2017) with a sleeveless dress on! I'm ecstatic with my new look....

A New Me!!! Mommy Makeover!!!

After 2 kids and a lot of weight loss I am ready for a new me. I decided on a mommy makeover with Dr. wells. Surgery is scheduled for April 26th. I have a pre op appointment in a couple of weeks and I'm excited and nervous. In the initial consult Dr Wells explained the process and showed me some of his work. I am beyond excited to have this procedure done.

Personal Statement

Everyone needs to be validated. In my case it is a good result and a happy patient. Cosmetic surgery is a journey, and it is my job to guide patients safely and successfully to the outcome they are seeking. What could be more rewarding than making people happy? I get to do that every day.

When a Tummy Tuck Is Not Enough

While the tummy tuck – or abdominoplasty – is our most frequent abdominal procedure, there are times when it's not appropriate. After extreme weight loss, some patients have excess skin that extends to the back, so we usually recommend a lower body lift in this case. This procedure will not only tighten the abdomen but will also lift the lateral thigh and buttocks. Patients who benefit from this have usually lost more than 100 pounds and have often had bariatric surgery...

The Big Trend in Breast Augmentations: Smaller Implants Making a Big Comeback

Over the years, I have seen a significant change in the size of breast implants that my patients request for their surgery. In the early ‘90’s it was unusual to use breast implants over 350cc, and then it trended to a larger implant size, from an average of 250-300cc to 350-400cc. Because trends are trends, and they tend to swing back and forth, we now see a lot of women requesting B-cup or small C-cup size implants. Patients frequently have jobs that are physically demanding...

Choosing a Plastic Surgeon: Doing Your Homework

We all know that choosing a plastic surgeon is more than surfing the Internet until you find some pictures you like. Doing a little homework to make sure you know the questions to ask to qualify your doctor is key. About Website Photographs Pictures are important and we have a lot of them on our website, where all of our photos are of our surgeries and even the models have been our patients. Be aware that on some plastic surgery websites that pictures are sometimes stock photos...

Facial Rejuvenation for Men – A Means of Staying Competitive in the Workplace

Today, over 90% of plastic surgery patients are women, but that number is steadily decreasing as men are realizing the important benefits – both personally and financially – of facial rejuvenation services to keep them looking young and vital. In business, the old adage of ‘image is everything’ applies when you are working with younger and sometimes more tech savvy competition. The larger number of female patients is understandable since they have to deal with the after...

Choosing the Right Facelift

A facelift is a deceptively complex and technique-dependent procedure that is often misunderstood. When we stand in front of a mirror with our hands lifting our neck and cheeks, it all looks pretty simple. However, the face is a multi-layered structure with skin, fat, muscle, connective tissue and glandular tissue. These collectively affect your appearance and consequently the results of your surgery. For many years, surgeons performed facelifts by simply undermining...
