5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Lost 175lbs and Wanted to Get Rid of All the Excess Skin

This is the second surgery I have had with Dr. Wages (he did a breast reduction for me almost 12 years ago). I was very pleased with the level of care he showed, as well as the result he got. I had spoken to other surgeons, and while Dr. Wages as slightly more expensive, I did not need to stay in the hospital overnight and I did not come home with a pain pump or drains. The result I got was beautiful. I am so glad I did this, and I am glad I chose Dr Wages to do the surgery. I highly recommend him.

30 Year Old Athletic Mom of 3 Regains Breast Volume Loss

Dr. Wages and his team were a delight and pleasure to work with from beginning to end. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and reassuring. I was very nervous going into my first appointment, never having imagined that I would be consulting with a plastic surgeon, but I left feeling excited and confident in moving forward. I scheduled the surgery with his office shortly after. Dr. Wages is an expert in his field and has a pleasant and personable demeanor. His work has incredible results. Minutes after waking up from surgery I became overcome with emotion; until that point I had realized just how much I needed this for own happiness. I cried tears of joy next to the nurse and then again when I saw my husband. My husband told me that moment made it all worth it.

Cant say enough ......

After 3 kids and a couple of cysts removals my breasts were a complete hot mess. I visited Dr. Wagers and new immediately I was not leaving that office without a scheduled surgery date for a breast lift with implants. He was Amazing!! EXTREMELY patient with all my questions. Helped me decide exactly what I wanted with some input on what he thought would be right or not so right for me. ...

Always exemplary on every single level.... I have had 3 different procedures and have been more than overjoyed with each... I highly recommend Dr. Wages. The Intima Laser vaginal treatment is something that I wish was an opportunity for every single woman world wide.... it has added so incredibly much to my life. Please ask about this. Make your consultation appointment!

53 Year Old Petite Mom of 3

Dr Wages was great during the entire process, making sure I understood the procedure, options for my implants and the recovery phase. He and his team spent time with me to understand my goals and recommend options that best fit my desired outcome! I was amazed at how smoothly things went on surgery day and how easy the recovery was! I would definitely recommend Dr Wages and will consider other procedures in the future.

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!

Just Do It! - Peabody, MA

I was shocked to see that Dr. Wages didn't have hundreds of fabulous reviews so I felt compelled to share my experience. I cannot say enough about how happy I am with my result! He was very confident that he could give me what I was looking for and he delivered.

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..
