5 out of 5 stars Smart Lipo

Good-Bye Saddle Bags - Ponchatoula, LA

I scheduled a consultation with Dr. Benson and his staff to discuss the potential results following a smartlipo procedure to the neck, saddlebags and inner thighs. They were very upfront about what I could realistically expect. I am in my early 40's with decent skin elasticity. I am also fairly active. My inner and outer thighs have always been a problem area for me, even when I have been...

Excellent Care and Fantastic Results! -Hammond, LA

I have always struggled with my pear shape. I am so pleased with the laser liposuction procedures on thighs, stomach and natural fat transfer to breasts Dr. Benson performed on me. I would highly recommend Dr. Benson and I am so thankful for the results achieved. ( size 8 down to size 2 ) My clothes fit better and I am able to wear styles that I could never consider wearing before the...

LOVE my Smartlipo Results!!!!! - Ponchatoula, LA

I've had several different procedures at QnA Cosmetic Surgery and I've always been more than pleased with my results. I value Dr. Benson’s honesty and the fact that he is able to achieve a more natural result. I had Smartlipo to my abdomen and love handles 3 years ago and I couldn't be happier with the outcome.? Before my Smartlipo I had the typical post baby bulge to my abdomen and didn't...

Love my Smart Lipo Results - Ponchatoula, LA

I saw Dr. Benson for smart lipo on my hips. I have an hourglass/curvy figure which is fine but I have always had odd fat pockets on my hips. They got considerably worst after I had a baby. I even found myself feeling uncomfortable in clothes because it was noticeable. My experience with Dr. Benson and his staff was wonderful and pleasant. He and his nurses took great care of me and we even had...

SmartLipo on Inner Thighs, Outer Thighs, and Banana Fold - Ponchatoula, LA

I am a fairly petite female at only 5'2" and 135lbs. I have always been pretty fit and have always had a flat stomach. The one area I could never get how I wanted it was my legs, particularly my thighs. I have had SmartLipo in the back of my mind since high school (I am 22, still rather young) because it was considered an "easy" procedure and wouldn't make me put my life on hold with a long...

5 out of 5 stars CO2 Laser

Wrinkle Free!!! Love my CO2 Laser Results -Hammond, LA

I am so happy I decided to have the CO2 laser procedure! It's unbelievable what can be done now, to fight off aging! I am in my early 50's and was tired of looking older than I felt. I decided to do CO2 laser under my eyes, after seeing the results of one of my friends. I'm totally thrilled!!! Thank you Dr. Benson. You and your staff were awesome!

Good So Far After Losing 30 Pounds - Ponchatoula, LA

I dropped 30 lbs. over the last year, but most of it in the first 6 months. I'm 51 years old, 5' 11" and weighed 201. today at the surgeon's office. I decided to have my abdomen and love handles reduced. Even when I was seriously into running and weighed 165 lbs., I had the love handles. I gained weight over the years lifting weights. I'm nor really concerned about my weight, I just wanted the...

Glad I Went Through with Smart Lipo - Ponchatoula, LA

I was a good candidate for a tummy tuck, but I could not afford to be off work for several weeks to recover, nor did I want to go through surgery. During my initial consult with Dr. Benson, he was realistic about what I should expect from smartlipo on my abdomen and flanks areas. I was very please with the results - my stretch marks are less visible and my clothes fit a lot better. In...

27 Years Old, 3 Kids Want my Tight Body Back - Ponchatoula, LA

So I have made the first step, I scheduled my consultation with Dr. Benson in Ponchatoula for smart lipo on December 17, 2015. I am excited and nervous These pictures were...

Tired of Being Too Thin - Ponchatoula, LA

Neograft Hair Restoration is a life changer! The procedure was performed in just a few hours with minimum discomfort. I had no problem concealing the donor or graft areas until there was a full recovery. I could see new hair growth within a few months. My hairdresser cannot believe the difference. I would highly recommend this procedure. Thinning hair has long been acceptable for men,...
