5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Fantastic breast reduction! - Warwick, RI

Dr. Walek was a complete professional, my only regret was not having surgery sooner. He was honest and realistic on what to expect. I woke up to lovely proportionally appropriate breast. I can't wait to see them in the months to come as my swelling subsides. He went above and beyond, and it was obvious that he took his time to make me look an feel my best . My sincerest thank you!

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

39 Years Old, 2 Children and No Time for Me!! - Warwick, RI

Surgery day, 7/2/14. Everything went great!! All professionals involved in my care conducted themselves accordingly. 7/16/14, I see a dramatic difference and I am loving it. According to what I'm seeing in the mirror, Dr, Walek put some work in!!! Rightfully, my stomach needed a full tummy tuck and I just got liposuction. My stomach almost looks like I had a tummy tuck. And he went beyond the basics. He even contoured my buttocks. This leads me to believe he love his job and very much takes pride in his work. Well, after doing some research, I came to understand that, by law, there's a maximum amount of fat that can be removed in one session, and he knew that most of that amount would be removed from my tummy area. This clarified that he wasn't ignoring my requests. I was in his best interest!!! Thanks.

5 out of 5 stars Laser Liposuction

Sono Bello - Woburn, MA

Hi, had the procedure done yesterday at 2pm. I showed up at 1pm as instructed. I got a friendly greeting and was asked if I wanted anything to drink and declined because I was already water logged due to all the water I have been drinking to make sure I was adequately hydrated. I got my upper and lower abdomen as well as my waist (love handles) done. I will admit I was nervous about the...

5 out of 5 stars Liposculpture

Dr Walek's Professionalism is Impressive and He is Definitely a Skilled Surgeon - Woburn, MA

I got lipo on my legs, performed by Dr. Walek, and I am very pleased. It has only been 1 week, and the results are great! I must say that I was already at the weight I want to be. I just was getting rid of saddlebags that would not leave by diet and exercise alone. Have realistic expectations. Surgery doesn't cure a lifetime of insecurity. I highly recommend him.

Laser Lipo @ Sono Bello - Woburn, MA

I have a consultation today @ Sono Bello in Woburn, MA. I'm interested to hear what they have to say. I think it's interesting that I'm not meeting with a surgeon, but with a sales-type person. I have struggled with weight all of my life, but even more after puberty. I have PCOS, which causes hormonal imbalance. I eat well just to stay at the weight I am at, which is considered obese by...

5 out of 5 stars Smart Lipo

My Journey to Smart Lipo - Abs, Waist & Back bra roll... My gift to me!

I didn't choose my provider, he was designated to me. But the clinic gave me a bio sheet on him & I googled him to find out more info about him. So far the reviews I read was positive. I had a positive interaction with him at my pre-op, so I'm feeling confident about the surgery.
