5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Lovely Office, Doctor and Overall Experience!

Dr. Vega is world class. She is friendly, fun and professional. I did not have a referral, but the moment she promptly responded to my inquiry with a depth of information I knew she was the one! And I could not be happier with the results! If you're interested in this type of treatment or any other services a New Life New Look offers, I highly recommend Dr. Vega.

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Vega and her staff! Dr. Vega and Braulio have amazing bedside manner. They make you feel comfortable the second you walk in. Throughout the entire process they make themselves available at any time. I had Lipo on my arms and couldn't be happier with the results. Completely natural result and nearly pain free procedure! You are in great hands with Dr. Vega

Dr. Vega has an incredibly light hand and took her time with each injection. She's a true artist and I'm relieved my search...

(While all those factors are important so is the artistry of...
