The BEST Place to Go for Botox! - Bellevue, WA

Dr. David Santos and his assistant Nastasha, are very professional, attentive and knowledgeable. I did my homework prior to choosing Dr. Santos and I chose him initially because his credentials are so impressive. Dr. Santos seems to be conservative in his approach and I don't feel at all pressured to commit to treatment. They take the extra time to talk with me and answer all of my questions. I do feel more informed about my options to maintain and improve upon my appearance. I am very impressed all around.

I had a cosmetic procedure with Dr. Santos and I'm very impressed and happy with my results. The staff was very kind and attentive and met all my needs before and after my procedure. They ordered lunch for my husband while he waited for my procedure and put on a DVD to keep him occupied. I'm so happy I had this procedure, I look and feel 20 years younger and highly recommend Lifestyle Lift and Dr. Santos. ~ Heidi K Bellevue, WA

Much Needed Laser - Bellevue, WA

Dr. Santos performed a laser treatment on my full face to help with all my lines and wrinkles. I'm so happy with my face,my skin and my texture feels amazing. Dr. Santos also put some filler in my lips to help them up a bit and gave me a lot of information on maintenance to keep my skin looking young. The staff was so kind but the office was very busy, i guess that's a good thing. I will...

Face Covered in Clogged Pores in Desperate Need of a Hydra Facial! - Seattle, WA

Bellevue Lifestyle Lift My esthetician was Nastasha. She was so friendly and great to talk to. She did a very thorough job. I felt like she really listened to what my concerns were and was great at explaining what she was doing.

Revision Rhinoplasty, Scar Tissue and Retin-a

I spent around $4,000 for the first procedure The doctor at the time told me that revision surgery would only cost me the price of the facility and anesthesia, and he does not charge for revision surgery. He knew I was not satisfied with the results it left my nose looking worse, I decided to wait and see if after some time and healing would appear later, when I decided I wanted revision...

15yrs. Younger with Lifestyle Lift - Bellevue, WA

Dr. Santos was very gentle towards me. He helped me feel very comfortable during the procedure. If I ever decide to do anything additional I will definitely go to Dr. Santos. My results are very natural and I am thrilled. Most people, if I don't say anything, think I have a new hairstyle or just got back from vacation because I look so well rested!

49 Year Old Female - Bellevue, WA

I'm motivated to write this because I read the other reviews and wondered if these people were talking about the same staff and physician??? As the staff went about their business I was extremely impressed with how kind, coordinated and professional they all were. Also, I could care less about bedside manner in a surgeon...that's an oxymoron anyway. I want someone skilled in hundreds of...
