Dr. Vitenas is so nice and he knows what he is doing! Lindsey was so sweet and amazing working with me and helping me decide on the size I want! update to after the surgery (at 6 weeks) I love my results so much! Dr. Vitenas did such a great job and when I would go back for him to see how they're doing it was quick but I didn't mind it was just a check up to see how they're doing. But he is honestly magical. He is very good at what he does! I would recommend him to everybody! My mom was even thinking about getting something done with the facility. I love my results so much from 32A to now a good full C cup, so natural looking... Just what I was wanting!

30s W/Kids, Needed the Flat Tummy Back. Houston, TX

I am petite, size 0, exercise daily, eat healthy, generally toned in most areas except that pooch in the lower abdomen from having kids. I decided to do Coolsculpting after consulting with two cosmetic surgeons. I was told I am a great candidate for CS though a mini tummy tuck would give me the best results for a washboard look abs. I am fine with a bit of excess skin, I just need the...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

32 Years Old - Breastfed 2 Kids - Breast Augmentation - Houston, TX

Wonderful from start to finish. Cheryl was my patient coordinator and made me feel comfortable from the second I met her. I appreciated how she answered many of my questions over the phone even before I went in for the consultation, including giving me prices for the different surgeries I may need (augmentation or mastopexy with augmentation). I felt the attention Cheryl and Dr. Vitenas gave me during my consultation was exceptional. It was a comfortable environment and I really felt listened too. Dr. Vitenas even participated when I tried on different sized implants. After the consultation Cheryl and I had a pretty long chat with her about everything and she patiently answered more of my questions. Dr. Vitenas and his team were the perfect fit for me and I couldn't be happier with my results.
