5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

25 Yrs Old Twin Mom - Westerville, OH

Had too much extra skin. I'm about 125lbs and 5'2. My kids are 2.5 years old and it wasn't getting better. Ive gained about 10 lbs trying to get it to look less wrinkly, which did help a tiny bit, but then I just had a little pouch of fat too. I'm 2 weeks post op now and I loooove looking at myself in the mirror now. Each day the swelling goes down alittle more and the cut heals up better, and...

Office review - Office Staff is Very Unprofessional. Westerville, OH

I went to Dr. Houser's office for a consult and quote for a tummy tuck with lipo, Dr. Robert Houser was very nice and easy to talk to but the office staff is unprofessional. When I sat down to discuss the cost for the procedure I was told that I would get a email to get the quote since the office manager had to figure out the prices( this was the second time) the first time I got a quote was...

5 out of 5 stars Lip Implants

Hoping for "Old Hollywood Glamour Lips" - 4mm Top and Bottom- No More Vanishing Top Lip. - Westerville, Ohio

Two years ago I went for Juvederm to fill in my parenthesis lines. The doctor had a little more left (half of one syringe) and suggested a large impact could be made if we put it in my upper lip. I never had obsessed about my small upper lip before that, but once I saw it bigger I realized I LOVED the look. I never wanted a small upper lip again. It made me look so much prettier to have a lip...

5 out of 5 stars Microneedling

42 Year Old with Sun Damage & Wrinkles - Westerville, OH

I went to see Rani in the medspa, she was amazing! She took the time to analyze my skin, listen to my concerns and help devise a plan to achieve the goals I so desperately wanted. After my consultation I decided to schedule an appointment for microneedeling. I'm so happy I did, my skin is recovering so quickly and I can already see fabulous results. I have to wait 4 weeks to have another one...

Reconstructive Surgery on Face and Legs - Westerville, OH

My family will always be grateful to Dr.Houser and his entire office. I have had years of reconstructive surgery on my face and legs, Dr.Houser is by far the best plastic surgeon I have been to. Well, other than his dad who was my surgeon when I was little. As a child, I had extensive damage to my face and body from bacterial meningitis. After years of avoiding hospitals as an adult, I finally...

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Feeling great after Tummy Tuck, Lift and Implants - Columbus, OH no regrets!

I had been thinking about doing this for about 8 months. I read a lot of reviews but since I didn't know very many people in the area I decided to get 5 consultations. I'm glad I did, the first doctor I saw was Dr. Donaldson in Columbus. I felt comfortable with him but the cost was over $17000 for all three procedures which was out of my budget. Next I went to Dr, Sullivan her cost was around...

33 Year Old Mother of 3 Breast lift with 275 and hybrid Tummy tuck - Columbus, OH

I am 33 years old, and fitness wise, in the best shape of my life. I do CrossFit 4-5 days a week, and love it. After 3 kids though, my diastasis just won't come back together, and my boobs look sad and pathetic. I'm 5'5", 125#.
