5 out of 5 stars Botox
Dr. Somenek is a highly skilled medical professional. I was immediately put at ease in my initial meeting by his warm, genuine personality. Few people like aging and even fewer like wearing the experience of life upon their face. During our first session Dr. Somenek asked if I was a runner. I had been a short and medium distance runner for years and was curious why he would ask that...

Amazing! He is so sweet. I had a non-surgical rhinoplasty. He made me feel really comfortable, answered all of my questions, and did a great job. I would definitely come back to get any other procedures in the future.

5 out of 5 stars Scar Removal
Dr. Somenek is absolutely wonderful. He does not try to do anything more than is necessary for your situation. He explains the procedures well, is knowledgeable and makes you feel very comfortable. I had a facial scar from a traumatic event 7 years ago and Dr. Somenek performed a scar revision to minimize the look of the scar. I put the procedure off for a number of reasons, but mainly because...
5 out of 5 stars Restylane Silk
I recently had my tear troughs, which were deep and dark, injected by Dr. Somenek. He alleviated any fears that I had prior to the treatment, and had a very calm, unrushed bedside manner. He was gentle and did not cause any bruising or swelling...remarkably!! I had done a lot of research, and understood that this area is very tricky to inject, and should only be done by someone with...
5 out of 5 stars Juvederm
Dr Somenek is awesome. As you can see I had a very thin upper lip. My result looks natural but it still improved my overall look tremendously. He took the time to explain all my options and was very gentle with the injections. I also had Botox injected into the muscle on both sides of my mouth to help with my down turned smile. I plan to see him again for all my facial cosmetic needs...

I see Dr. Somenek for Botox injections between my eyebrows (11's as they call them) and I cannot say enough about his skill and talent. I absolutely love my results every time! I highly recommend him.
5 out of 5 stars Mohs Surgery
Dr. Somenek removed a benign skin growth on my face a few weeks ago. Naturally I was a bit anxious about a potential scar on my cheek but Dr. Somenek made me feel very much at ease with his compassionate and professional manner. All went very well and his post procedure instructions were clear. I appreciated his conscientious effort, and found the rest of the staff, namely Mary, Sharonda...
5 out of 5 stars Kybella
I recommend Dr. Somenek and West End Plastic Surgery. From check in to check out, everyone who works there is friendly and professional. Dr. Somenek took his time to explain the procedure to me and gave me realistic expectations about the pain and the recovery time. At each follow up visit, he was interested in hearing about my recovery. I would not hesitate to come here again.
