Great experience!! Awesome Doctor

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.

5 out of 5 stars Male Breast Reduction

26 Year Old Male. Breast Reduction - Houston, TX

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.

34 Yo Mother of 1 - Houston, TX

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. If the 600cc is attractive and will be long lasting plus gives me my desired the look I wish to have, then hopefully that's what I end up with. I...
