5 out of 5 stars Belly Button Surgery

Belly Button Piercing Scar Completely Removed

The entire office team with Dr. Wages was absolutely fantastic from my very first phone call to inquire. They were knowledgeable, informative, pleasant and completely professional during my entire course of treatment. Prior to seeing Dr. Wages, 2 years prior, I had gone to a surgeon at Lahey Clinic to discuss my situation. I never felt comfortable with that surgeon as he didn't really seem to understand what I wanted. He planned to remove the scar and use a vertical incision which would have been super noticeable and obvious. Dr Wages was absolutely wonderful and professional in every way. You can tell he is a master of his craft and he completely took the time to understand what my concerns were and what I had envisioned for the end product. He completely delivered and my scar now is very well hidden and I only wish I had it done sooner by Dr. Wages!

59 Almost 60 Declaring War on Aging! - Peabody, MA

Dr. David Wages, MD at North Shore Plastic Surgery is definitely "The Man" when it comes to knowing what needs to be done to achieve my goals. I have been to see him only twice, counting today and I can assure everyone that I will never go anywhere else. My journey started two years ago with multiple Spa's and my first visit last month with Dr Wages was amazing. (I am not certain of the products used, (I leave that to him) I had some fillers and my lips enhanced. Beautiful results=very natual. Everyone only commented how great I am looking and even my own daughters have not asked "have you had work done?" lol. Amazing, just went back today for two week follow-up and asked him if I could do a little botox. Needed minimal at 480.00. I will never go anywhere else and the reward of feeling beautiful is amazing.

5 out of 5 stars Neck Lift

77 Year Old, Mother of Two. Realtor - Peabody, MA

I have been very self conscious of my neck for many years. I work with the public, and always was worried what other people thought about me.i was so happy when I found Dr Wages, he was so kind, and I felt very conftable with him. He explained every thing to me about the procedure, the recovery process, everything that I needed, that made me very relieved. I was very nervous about having plastic surgery. This is the first time for me. He assured me that he would be there for me through the whole process. He definitely was there for me through it all. He has an open door policy. When I was concerned about the littlest thing, he told me to come right in. I took advantage of it. He was always there with a smile. I was so comfortable with him, that in October, I will be having a breast lift by him as well. I would be honored to recommend him to anyone who is considering having any procedure, or surgery, by Dr Wages. All my friends and family are so amazed of the final result. It has taken 15 years off my age..

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

No regrets for this 50 year old

I chose to do this only after seeing his work. Everything was beyond my expectations & hopes. Dr. Wages & staff are top notch with care & attention to details. I was so nervous until hospital nurses raved of his capabilities; giving me extra assurance. I felt good enough that I was out shopping the next day!

"22 Years Old and Needed a Breast Reduction - Results Were Amazing!"

Dr. Wages is a phenomenal physician in terms of patient care and bedside manner. He explained the procedure and care-taking process clearly, and I felt that I was in great hands. I am extremely happy with my results and would recommend Dr. Wages to any woman looking to have a breast reduction. He is a comforting and intelligent presence.

Upkeep, Getting Older - Peabody, MA

Very happy with the outcome and with all interactions, with the doctor and his office staff, everybody.

5 out of 5 stars Body Lift

Forever Thankful...

Hi my name is Jeremiah and I am psyched to write this review. On my first appointment I was nervous to say the least. My consult with Dr. Wages was in regards to the surgery that I needed due to rapid weight gain and subsequent weight loss. The latter due to an adverse reaction to a medication when I was 16. This body trauma severely compromised my confidence and self-esteem for over a decade....

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Abdominal and Flank Liposuction - Peabody, MA

I believe that Dr. Wages defines what a true clinician should be. His results in my case are a testament of his years of experience and exceptional knowledge of the human body. I feel he performed my surgery with little trauma hence resulting in a quicker recovery. Dr. Wages's experience along with his thorough and kind staff creates the most ideal conditions to meet any patients' needs.

Dr. Wages and his staff are all amazing! He is the first and only consultation I went to.

My surgery went amazing and my recovery time was minimal- I was out and about the second day after surgery!
