5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
I went in for my consult in December 2016, Dr. Vanik is by far one of the best Dr.s I have come across, I went to 5 different Dr's for breast augmentation, before meeting him. This Dr. has a wonderful bedside manner, very honest opinion. I went in with one idea and look and him being the Dr. gave me his opinion and perspective, After all he is the surgeon and he's been doing plastic surgery...

5 out of 5 stars Male Breast Reduction
I went to Elite Body Sculpture in Houston, Tx, and got my procedure done by Dr. Vanik. He was awesome. Very thorough. They give a free consultation, and he is the one who gave it to me. During procedure he allowed me to listen to what I wanted. Expected time was 1.5 hours, but took longer because he kept trying to get everything out. Would recommend to everyone! He even gave me his cell number for any questions I needed. I text him three times, and all three times were answered immediately.

Dr. Vanik is very professional and extremely sensitive to his patients feelings. He explains the procedure so the patient can understand what will happen. He spends as much time with you as you need and his staff is the friendliest and caring you will meet. There is no waiting time in his office, they actually schedule correctly so you get right in.

Monday morning is the big day! I've though about having an augmentation for years. The big day is fast approaching. The Doctor and I have decided on Textured round siiicone; haven't decided on cc's yet but looking at the range if 500cc to 600cc.
