5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Reconstruction After Cancer Surgery - Reno, NV

Dr. Virden was recommended to me by my OBGYN and the cancer surgeon. Together the three of them worked together to restore me to health. It has been over a year since the diagnosis and the prognosis is for full recovery.

The first couple of days were difficult, but within a week I felt ready to hit the gym (which I...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Truly the Best - Reno, NV

I have wanted my nose fixed since I was a kid... I love many things about being Greek, just not my nose! Dr. Virden made my nose more feminine without drastically changing my appearance. Even though my nose is still very swollen (it has only been 4 wks since surgery) I'm very happy with it.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Highly Recommend - Reno, NV

The advice I could give to others is be comfortable with yourself before you have your procedure dont expect it to make you a different person it enhances the the person you already are. :)
