50 Yr Old Female, Used SonoBello to Remove Belly Fat Waist, Upper/lower Abs, and Hips - Bellaire, TX
Dr. Stapenhorst is a very matter of fact type surgeon. He's great at what he does, but is a man of few words. There was a slight disconnect, I felt. During the procedure there were a couple times that the pain was very sharp (you're awake, mind you) and I jerked a little out of reflex. He told me to "stop moving", and that was that. I felt a little overwhelmed, but not comfortable enough to say anything. I'm happy I have great results because I don't think I'd want to have to do it again any time soon.

Dr. David was so professional and informative. He's has years of experience and was very caring and personable. He made my experience wonderful. My results are phenomenal and it's only 1 week! I can't wait to see my 3 month stomach!
So far he seems a little dry, but I don't need him to have a great personality. I just need him to do a great job! The office is not as glitzy as the two others I visited, it seems a bit more humble.

It's two weeks out, I am so thrilled. Recovery was easy. I don't plan to have the FDA recommended MRIs to check for breakage until 10 or more years out unless I have or hear of a great reason. My doctor used the "pastry...
