Tummy Tuck and Lipo. Fredericksburg, VA

I had a full tummy tuck with muscle repair done 2/2016. I have wanted this procedure for so long. My tummy was a disaster after having carried four huge babies. Dr. Palmer has an incredible eye for aesthetics. He did an amazing job on my tummy tuck and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone. I already have other appointments to address further issues I'd like to deal with. He is a two hour drive from me but completely worth it!

31 Yrs Old, 3 Kids - Fredericksburg, VA

Today was my consultation. Dr. Palmer had a great attitude, and made me feel calm about everything. He made sure to answer all my questions and concerns. I paid to hold my surgery date a deposit of 500.00 which also goes towards the surgery.

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

No longer a KNOTT head! - Fredericksburg, VA

Great experience with Surgical Arts of Va. I had a fatty tumor that has risen on my forehead, Dr. Palmer was very thorough about my procedure-suggested liposuction to remove the fatty tissue instead of having a two inch incision on my forehead. Tumor gone and NO scar! Couldn't be happier!

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

The good, the bad and the ugly.

Dr Palmer is pleasant and very aware of the patient's need. I had a tummy tuck, torso & flanks liposuction. I did not feel any pain, rather very tight core muscles, soreness and swelling post op. I am just in my second week and will post pictures soon once I can get through some of the swelling. I arrived at the surgery center at 8:30 and was met shortly after to take my vitals. I was...
