5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Breast Augmentation. Rochester, NY

I recently had a breast augmentation, but they were barely a D and I wanted them larger. My other plastic surgeon was unwilling to comply with the implant size I wanted so I began to surgeon shop and fortunately found Dr. Vega! He took time with me, looked at pictures, and talked about different implant styles in order to make sure he could achieve my desired result. I felt completely...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

34 Years Old, Two Children Ages 3 and 1 - Rochester, NY

I met with Dr Vega three times prior to surgery. He made me feel at ease throughout the entire process. Dr. Vega and his team are amazing!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

Almost 30, AA Cup, Two Kids, Finally Able to Get the Aug I've Been Waiting For! - Pittsford, NY

I chose Dr. Vega. First for his results, and second for his bedside manner and staff courtesy. I have been more than pleased with the entire process. I drove the distance to see him as he made me much more comfortable than doctors closer to me. He went over any questions I had with patience, I never once felt rushed. As a nervous person, He made me feel very comfortable with my choices. I wasn't sure what I needed so we went over my lifestyle, and what I thought I might like. I felt very comfortable. Dr. Vega and his staff are a dream to work with. So polite, and flexible. I will recommend him to anyone!!

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

53 Year Old with Saggy Eyelids No More! - Pittsford, NY

Dr. Vega and his staff are very kind and knowledgable. He genuinely cares about his patients and is always available to answer questions and return calls. The outpatient facility was modern, clean, and very organized. I would use Dr. Vega again, as well as the surgery center.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Delayed Reconstruction After Mastectomy - Rochester, NY

Very professional, yet kind and caring. Terrific bedside manner. Very highly regarded by other MDs involved with my care. Most of all, my new breast looks great and feels much more like normal. Dr Vega has done a fantastic job for me.

40th Birthday Present To Myself - Rochester, NY

Wonderful bedside manner and absolutely beautiful results!!!

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

34 Years Old, 4 Kids, 150lb Weight Loss (No WLS) with Large Pannus and Muscle Separation. Pittsford, NY

Dr. Vega is an artist! He is the absolute best and I wish I had a million dollars (or another 10k) so he could finish the work on my body I need (excess skin on the flanks and mons lift). He freed me from my extra skin and let me see the person I've been working on for so many years with losing weight. He has gone above and beyond as a doctor, and I interviewed a lot of them. I wasn't an easy case, but he never made me feel like he was anything but happy and willing to support me and work his magic on me. I wish I could give him a endless stars.

24, No Kids, 5'6, 123 Lbs - Rochester, NY

I had my consultation last week and it went well! I did a lot of research beforehand so i didn't have very many questions. My doctor seems like a very busy man but I still felt like he was there for me, my questions and to explain everything. He took measurements and suggested sizes. He explained that to the human eye, 25 cc can't really be seen to make a difference but i still feel i want 325...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

Shopping for a Bra Was a Nightmare! - Pittsford, NY

Phenomenal! Professional! Perfectionist. Innovative. Passionate about his career. Very knowledgeable about new procedures! Talented. Confident. One of the best in his field!!! If you are considering any type of cosmetic procedure, I highly recommend Dr. Vega! I'm VERY picky and I trust him explicitly! Looking forward to additional procedures in the very near future! Thank you Dr. Vega!

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

60 Yrs Old - Everything Starting to Sag - Rochester, NY

Working in the financial world, unfortunately people are judged by their looks. Looking your age or older due to many factors - genetics, environment, stress is not a plus. I was in a position in my life that I was able to afford cosmetic surgery and had been contemplating it for several years. A friend of mine was a patient of Dr Vega's for breast reconstruction and I acted as her...
