Patient Testimonials

The Best Choice!!! -- No Vertical Scar Breast Lift From the very beginning, I knew Dr. V was the choice for me. I can't thank him and the team enough. I loved the website, and preferred it over all of the others that I saw. I had already heard about this Doctor from other people, and have recommended him to my friends. I made a call for a consultation, and I knew from the moment I finished the call that I made the right choice! Everyone in the office and Dr. V were incredible. They made me feel so comfortable in the decision that I was making. They are models of professionalism. They made a surgical plan that was “just for me”, showed me photos, listened to my concerns and took as much time as they needed to answer my questions. The surgery and recovery were smooth, and went just like they said it would. And the results are PERFECT! After the surgery, Dr. V called that night, and his office called the next day. I could not be happier with either the service, or my results. This is one of the best decisions I have ever made for myself… and my partner is happy too!!! I have totally regained my confidence. This is not about vanity, it is about feeling good in my own body. An excellent physician should get excellent reviews. Thank you Dr. Ver Halen!
love my lipo!!!! Wow!!! I lovelovelove!!! that Ideal lipo with Dr. Ver Halen! My first visit at Dr. Ver Halen's office was absolutely amazing. The customer service level is perfect, and the team members will welcome you with open arms. Dr. Vis a very nice man with an open-mind. One of the best things about Dr. Ver Halen is that he will give you the Lord's honest truth about your body, and what he CAN and CANNOT do for you. If you have concerns about your health before your surgery, he will get to the bottom of it. But the kindest woman in the world is Kristin, their patient coordinator! They made the procedure fit on my schedule, and on my budget on a payment plan. It is the best money I have ever spent, I swear. One of my favorite things about their office is that the team is the best. They are optimistic, smiling, and helpful 100% of the time. They are normal people that you can relate to. I am 100% satisfied with my surgery, and can't wait to show off my new body!
Bellesoma Dr. Ver Halen === Instant Awesome!!! I had me procedure with VA about a month ago. I had done a lot of research before-hand, and had heard all of the hype about how new and improved this procedures was, compared to a regular breast lift. Let me tell you---- It is TRUE!!!! At about 2 weeks ago, the dressings started to come off.... and I could not be happier with the new me!!!! Thank you to everyone who helped to get me my pre-mommy body back!!!

Dear AHerman23, Hello and thank you for your excellent question. To get an average cost in your area, you should contact a number of local surgeons to obtain a quote, as costs vary by geography. It is best to answer your question during a face-to-face evaluation, when you can discuss your goals and expectations for the procedure, and you can have a physical examination to evaluate for that procedure. I recommend that you find a board-certified, or board-eligible plastic surgeon with whom you are comfortable.
