51 Yrs Old, 3 Boys and I Want Me Back - Burnsville, MN

He and his staff seem to be attentive.

Upcoming Work: Lipo360 and Slight BBL

I opted for an in-person consultation with Dr. B (required a flight!). He was well worth the visit. I need to see a doctor, eyeball-to-eyeball, to ensure we're a good match. He is awesome! Very kind, listens well, and made me feel totally comfortable. I am extremely happy with my choice and excited about the procedures.

Dr. Balgobin is the best! You will not find a more sincere, engaged, professional, and committed plastic surgeon. His work ethic and knowledge speak for themselves with his results and his patients comments. Dr. B and staff, you're the greatest! Wish I could clone you guys. Thank you and my husband thanks you, too.

28 Years Old.. Much Needed BBL - Minneapolis, MN

My surgery was scheduled for March 21, 2017. Dr. Balgobin called me today & told me that my hemoglobin was too low.. Liposuction patients need a minimum hemo level of 12 & mine was a 10.1 All of my other test were good. I'm so disappointed. He.

My question is has anyone had their BBL done with Dr. Balgobin and if so, how did you like your results? Also, would you recommend staying at a recovery house or having family come and just staying at a hotel? This is my first...
