Are you a patient of Craig W. Colville, MD, FACS?
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
Dr. Colville was professional and courteous every time I saw him. He always took his time with me and never made me feel rushed during my visits. He discussed my options and gave recommendation on implant type and size. My husband was extremely comfortable in what could have been a very awkward experience! His office staff and nurses were amazing. My recovery was much better than I expected. The benefits of the surgery exceeded my expectations. My husband new I would be happy but he even said, "I had no idea how much this surgery would change our relationship for the better." I have become more confident with him seeing my body and I didn't even realize it was something I struggled with. I would absolutely recommended Dr. Colville to anyone considering having any kind of surgery!
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
Both my family physician and my gyno recommended Dr. Colville. He is very professional and took all the time I needed to explain everything to me. The only reason I gave him 4 stars is because he is not a "warm & fuzzy" kind of dr. but he definately knows his stuff. His knowledge and professionalism would rate him a 5 though. My only complaint is I didn't get a "how are you doing" phone call the next day. Granted, my tt was on a Friday and I had an appt on the following Monday, but I am used to the next day phone calls for anything major. Other than that, I highly recommend him.

5 out of 5 stars Body Lift
I was impressed with Dr. Colville's bedside manner. He never suggested I "needed" to fix something on my body. He listened to what I wanted and from there suggested how he could change something and what the end result would look like. I enjoyed watching the reaction of friends and family seeing the "after results"! He is truly and artist with the patient's best intentions in mind. Managed my pain better than I expected as well!

Dr Colville was very helpful and honest. Procedures I requested were practically denied for common sense reasons. Glad I took his advice.
5 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting
I have always worked hard to stay fit, but even with all of the diet and exercise, there are always "those spots" that seem to be a problem! My inner thighs were my nemesis, but since the introduction to CoolSculpting, I am no longer at war with them! The procedure takes one hour per leg, you can bring your laptop and work right through the painless procedure! I feel it is a great tool for a...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants
I WAS embarrassingly flat chested! I wore padded bras my whole life to give the appearance of breasts, and went through the awkward stages with friends in dressing rooms, intimacy issues with boyfriends and now my husband and the in between of never feeling truly like a woman. Once finally landing the man of my dreams and getting past my small chest, we started a family. My chest size never...
