42 Year Old Mother of 3 with over 100 Pound Weight Loss-Breast Lift with Augment & Drainless TT with Exparel. Virginia Beach, VA

Surgery is next week and I am so excited. At my highest weight I was over 250, I now weigh in at 142 and I am 5'5" tall. I had weight loss surgery over a year ago and I am having this surgery to remove the loose skin and lift and fill my breasts back up to what they should look like. I chose Dr. Alspaugh in Va Beach. He uses the quilting procedure for TT and it is drainless. He also uses...

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

30 Years Old, 3 Children, Needing Mommy Makeover - Virginia Beach, VA

Dr. Alspaugh was very thorough during my consultation. He spent a lot of time explaining the procedure and answered all my questions. I felt as though my recovery was easy because Dr. Alspaugh was so detailed. I highly recommend Dr. Alspaugh to anyone considering cosmetic surgery. He will far exceed your expectations as he did mine!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

53 Year Old with Back Breaking Breasts! Virginia Beach, VA

I had gone to surgeons in Richmond, Va trying to get a breast reduction covered by my insurance. They were awful! I left in tears. No one wanted to bother with someone trying to get a breast reduction thru insurance! A friend recommended Dr. Alspaugh. Thank God! What a life saver he has been for me! Dr. Alspaugh and his staff always made me feel so comfortable with every aspect of my procedure! They acted like none of my questions were stupid! And believe me, I had plenty of stupid questions! For a doctor to be so caring and concerned and actually take the time to get to know his patients is rare these days. Most doctors now make me feel like a number. Get them in, get them out. I cant say enough wonderful things about Dr Alspaugh and his whole staff. They literally changed my life!

I did it with Atkins and weight watchers and it took about 2 years. After the kids and losing weight i am left w/...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

32 Years Old - Barely A Cup, Breastfed 2 Babies, 375cc Gel Submuscular - Great Experience - Virginia Beach, VA

Dr. Alspaugh was my first and only choice and the only doctor I consulted with. He is matter-of-fact and honest. His staff puts you at ease and I never felt uncomfortable or out of place. I also greatly appreciate that I was encouraged to stay proportional to my body and stay within my comfort zone. My surgery was smooth and easy. I have two girlfriends who have seen the same doctor within two months of my surgery. We are all incredibly happy with our experience. I highly recommend Dr. Alspaugh and his practice.

5 out of 5 stars Mentor Breast Implants

36 Years Old, 150 Lbs, 5'8" - 34 AA (That's Generous) to 34 D (I Think) - Virginia Beach, VA
