5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

I would recommend them very highly

I saw Rep Sundin for lipo and cool sculpting. I continue to do some work with him. He is great and, like other reviewers, I feel confident that he would never recommend something that he did not think I needed or he thought would not work well for me. In addition, he has been very honest about what to expect and has not promised results that were not realistic. I have not had any nurse...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Great surgeon!!!!!

I had a tummy tuck may 10th and I'm only 4 days post op as of now. My experience with dr. Sundin was 50/50. He was nice and professional, however he did not really take his time answering my questions. When I first walked into his office, I had so many questions to ask him and the consultation seemed to be rushed. He told me he would like to answer my questions but he had other clients to...

3 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting

One CoolSculpting Treatment- Recommend More.

Dr. Sundin is great, I found him to be honest and does not recommend anything he does not think you need or would benefit from. The staff were friendly and the ones who actually did the procedure. There was never an appt for after photos though. The only "issue" I had was with the onsite Esthetician. Experienced, yes, but extremely insulting and condescending. She made referenced people in the skincare industry putting them down, since these were people I happened to have prior working relationships with, I found it very rude. Her behavior and words were extremely unprofessional and made me very uncomfortable. Unfortunately, though Dr. Sundin is a great surgeon, I have found other practices in the Richmond area and will not be returning to that office due to that experience.

5 out of 5 stars PRP for Hair Loss


I've been a patient of Dr. Sundin for about a year and I can't express strongly enough what a great doctor he is and what a wonderful staff he has. I was losing my hair for about 5 years and after much research decided to try PRP therapy. Dr. Sundin met with me prior to the procedure and thoroughly explained all that it entailed and answered all my questions. All my fears and anxieties were...

5 out of 5 stars Infini RF

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

Dr. Sundin provides utmost comfort and reassurance during procedures. Because I am a Nurse Practitioner myself, I tend to be extremely selective regarding my care givers. Dr. Sundin has exceeded my expectations for exceptional care. I had not had previous professional contact with this practice regarding my own patient referrals.
