5 out of 5 stars Chin Surgery
I had lipo on my chin area done about 1.5 years ago at American Lipo Center. It was a horrible experience. The table broke so they had my hang my head off the table instead of calling off the procedure. To top it off I had zero results it actually looked worst and I was getting married in about 6 weeks from the procedure. Thanks to a recommendation from a friend I found Dr Thesiger. He told me at the consultation a little of the muscle would have to be removed for me to get the results I desired. I was nervous initially due to my prior experience at the other Dr. But went ahead since I heard such great things about him. I also felt very comfortable. He was easy to talk to and explained everything well. I'm so glad I took the recommendation, it's only been a few days. I don't have swelling and itching like I did before. My chin area looks amazing. I don't think I could have been more satisfied. He's my new go to guy for tweaks

Dr. Thesiger is phenomenal! This is my second procedure I've had with him and I would recommend him to anyone. He has years of experience, is extremely professional and does great work. His staff is also the best. Bellaesthetics is a med spa component to his practice which provides his patients with post-operative care. While some may consider his prices higher than others you have to factor in all of the additional services and treatments that are included in the cost. My cost included lymphatic drainage massages twice a week for four weeks following my procedure.

Dr. T is a great person. He's easy to talk to. He responds to you within seconds of concern, you have numerous of ways to contact him.He let's you know he does "conservative"butts.

Dr. Thesiger was very patient with me and I couldn't have asked for a better doctor. He really is the best I wish I had done this sooner.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
1 year+ post op, 34DDD, wish I went bigger w/ higher profile, totally natural feeling .. still worth Every Penny! :o)
After stalking MANY websites and having in person consults with 2 other surgeons, I liked every breast aug on Dr. T's website and decided to go with him! (Plus he had a surgery date open on Dec. 26th which in my mind was the ultimate date to take a vacation, work would be slow etc.) All of the BAs on Dr. T.'s website had the look that I was going for and during my pre-op appointment I actually brought in my iPad and showed him what I wanted. I will point out that I had an opportunity to use a much cheaper PS and decided not to use him. The results on his website were not the look I was aiming for. This is your body, health and life - don't bargain shop like you are buying a new pair of shoes. ;) The boobs that I am aiming for: http://www.thesigerplasticsurgery.com/PhotoGallery_50.aspx?gid=232621#Content I told Dr. T. I wanted to be a D cup (I started at a deflated, barely B cup). Initially he recommended 425 ccs silicone mid-range profiles, under the muscle. I ended up going with the 457's and boy I'm glad I just went bigger from the get go! Most doctors are very conservative and #1 complaint of BA patients is that they wish they went bigger. We are going through this process, discomfort, etc. I surely was not doing it just to be 1 size bigger. Just sayin' .. He also recommended Arnica & Bromelain pills and the cream and used drains which I think helped SOOO much. My recovery was SO much better than what I expected!! I was massaging the day after my surgery with NO PAIN! *** MY ONLY ADVICE TO EVERY WOMAN CONSIDERING A BA IS TO GO BIGGER! ALMOST EVERYONE I KNOW WISHES THEY WENT BIGGER FROM THE GET GO .. SO WHATEVER CCS YOU AND YOUR PS ARRIVE AT - ADD 25 OR 50CCS TO THAT #. CANNOT STRESS THAT ENOUGH .. THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 425 AND 457 (as in my case) IS NOT THAT MUCH! :) *** I also have to say if I had to do it all over I would in a heartbeat. If I had to do this once a year, I would do it! (If it didn't cost what it did, of course.) Best money I have ever spent on myself. xoxo
