5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Reconstruction After Cancer Surgery - Reno, NV

When I was diagnosed with breast cancer I was given the option of having reconstruction done at the same time as the mastectomy. Dealing with the cancer aspect of this whole situation was a lot easier knowing that I had such a good doctor caring for me after the cancer treatment. I would joke that I was so happy to wake up from the mastectomy "still looking like a girl," and he would always say, "You'll better than ever when we're finished!" Dr. Virden and his staff always made me feel like they had all the time in the world for me. Honestly, I wasn't afraid to undergo the surgeries after his consultations. He listened to my wishes and concerns and gave me viable solutions to a seemingly dreadful situation. I would highly recommend Dr. Virden and have the utmost respect for him as a physician.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift

Wow - Reno, NV

Dr. Virden exceeded my expectations! I had a fat transfer and breast lift. I never thought having a plastic surgery would make me feel so good. Dr. Virden is very kind, realistic, listens to the patient and is a artful surgeon. My breasts look very natural and I couldn't be happier! His staff is amazing, very knowledgable and discreet. I just can't say enough about Dr. Virden and his staff.

5 out of 5 stars Nose Surgery

His Wife/Nurse Lindsey and His Staff Are Caring, Professional and So Positive

I was originally set to have my nose repaired by an ENT dr. but felt uncomfortable with the procedure that dr. was going to do to fix the hole in my septum. I sought a second opinion with Dr. Virden. He suggested a different procedure for my nose, and made my husband and me feel at ease with my decision for surgery beyond the medical necessity. He is a very talented dr. and there is no doubt in my mind of his abilities. I am soooo glad I went to Dr. Virden instead of an ENT.

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Very Good - Reno, NV

My Experience Was Fabulous from Start to Finish. It Was Textbook! - Reno, NV

Both Dr. Virden and his staff are intersted in the best possible outcome for their patients. Dr. Virden has a way of making one feel safe and secure. His work is outstanding-success is the only option.

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Truly the Best - Reno, NV

Dr. Virden answered all my questions, calmed my fears & truly is the "Best in Reno"! My rhinoplasty experience has been excellent...from consultation to after-care, and Dr. Virden was available & returned my phone calls even on a Saturday & on a holiday! His staff was so friendly, professional, accommodating & knowledgeable; I am 100% happy with my new nose & Dr. Virden. I was scared about getting medically unnecessary surgery....would it be worth it, etc...? YES!! My operation was a breeze, virtually pain free recovery, & my black eyes were really the only thing that gave away the fact that I had surgery.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Highly Recommend - Reno, NV

Dr Virden and his staff are very personnel and caring. This was my second procedure with Dr Virden and both experiences were professional and the work was awsome. He is very easy to talk to and he cares. There is lots of follow up included with your surgery so you have no worries.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Outstanding Medical Care and Support - Reno, NV

Completely professional yet personal. I knew that I could call on Dr. Virden as well as his staff 24/7 should the need arise. The written info provided helped me understand the process and what to expect as well.

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Knowledgeable, Respectful, Experienced and Personable - Reno, NV

I was originally intimidated about seeing a plastic surgeon but immediately felt comfortable in Dr Virden's office. He is very personable, readily available to answer any questions and actually listens to the patient's desires. He gives you 100% of his attention. Dr Virden has excellent credentials as well as an artistic eye. Currently 10 days post op (facelift), I now understand how well informed I was not only about the proceedure but especially what to expect during recovery. I especially appreciated Dr Virden and his staff's candid answers to my many inquires. Also covered was a lymphatic massage (in the spa side of his practice) to help with swelling as well as make-up tips to cover any transient reddness. Thank you!
