Everyone in the Office Was So Curteous and Anxious to Make Me Feel Comfortable -Richmond, VA

I am 72 years old and I had this fat in my midsection that I wanted gone. I have noticed results after one treatment and I plan to have one more.

Aging but Wanting ALL the Help I Can Get !! Richmond, VA

Because of increasing age I needed assistance to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and various pigmentation issues. The entire team at VIPS work closely to provide the most cost effective procedure and the maximum positive outcome. I have been a patient in several other Plastic practices. This by far has been the one with which I have been most pleased!

3 month post op, feeling great - Richmond, VA

I had a tummy tuck with lipo (panniculectomy) took off about 25 pounds. I feel great now, I can move and walk better. My clothes fit and look better. I had one little set back, I ended up with an infection on Thanksgiving spent 3 days in the hospital. Had to open my incision up and pack it with guaze. It has heeled now after 3 months. This was the best decision I have made for myself. Now...

21 Years Old, Finally Having Breast Lift and Saline Augmentation. Richmond, VA

A couple of months ago, I posted some pictures to this forum seeking advice. At first, I thought I could get away with just an augmentation (to even the girls out) but upon a consultation, Dr. Sundin informed me that I couldn't get the augment without a lift so I'm doing both! After much back-and-forth on the procedure date, I am very excited for Wednesday 9/24!! I'm not really nervous at...

Extremely Happy with Results - Richmond, VA

I had 3 sites on my abdomen treated about 4 months ago and I am extrememly pleased with my results! After about a month, I started to notice a difference in the way my clothes fit and it just continued to get better and better. The doctor was very informative of all my options both surgical and non-surgical. The office was clean and the staff was exceptional. I shopped prices and this doctor...

I am very active and regularly exercise - Coolsculpting - Richmond, VA

I decided to try Coolsculpting to get rid of an area of fat in my lower abdomen. I am very active and regularly exercise and neither my diet nor countless sit-ups would help me lose that lower belly bulge. I had heard about Coolsculpting from a friend and decided to try the procedure for myself. My experience was great. I felt that I knew what to expect the day of treatment from my...

An Awesome CoolSculpting Experience - Richmond, VA

It has only been two weeks but I have already noticed a change. It will only get more and more noticeable as the weeks go on. I am excited to go back for another treatment. I am treating my love handle area and look forward to the results in time for the bikini weather we will be having soon!

5 out of 5 stars Liposonix

Very Painful Extremely Supportive Staff - Richmond, VA

I had this treatment yesterday. First, I'll say I have a very high tolerance to pain meds and a lower pain threshold. It was very painful. I think it should occur under some type of anesthesia for comfort purposes but understand that defeats the point of the product's marketing. Can you make it through it? Yes, but not with out some tears. I had 18 spots total on abdomen upper and lower. That...

Miracle Worker! - Richmond, VA

I recently had a breast lift and augmentation done after breastfeeding 4 babes. The results are phenominal! I had assymetrical, small, saggy breasts and they are literally picture perfect now and the exact size I wanted.
