ProFractional Laser Resurfacing

Dr. Shah is very talented at what he does, I'm always satisfied with him and his staff. I'm taken care of and feel like customer satisfaction is their number one priority.

I love the staff there! Not having to shave as often

Bivik Shah, MD Columbus , OH

Breast Augmentation

Overall experience was amazing and the outcome was perfect!..Very friendly atmosphere! The outcome was perfect!

Breast Augmentation

The expertise, the communication, the availability to answer any and all questions, the frequent checkups in office.

Bivik Shah, MD Columbus , OH

Body Lift

The doctor was very attentive and listened to everything I said. He gave me realistic expectations and provided outstanding service My clothes fit better. I now buy the right size instead of large to hide my “rolls”. I am now more confident and willing to participate in activities with the grandchildren, even went wall climbing

Arm Lift

Scars on my arms are just as bad as the hanging skin. Still don’t ware short sleeve shirts and when I do people comment. What happen to your arms. Still to much skin under my arms. One breast is larger than the other. I notice, not other people. Would not do the surgery again. Dr. and staff could not have been any better. They were great.

Laser Resurfacing

Staff was very friendly and professional. Dr. Centeno offered me options for treatment and listened to my concerns and ideas. The ability to give others hope that there are treatment options for many conditions that you may have given up on.

Thigh Lift

DR. Centeno is a people person who genuinely cares about his patients, and is always available. I highly recommend him to everyone for any procedure they maybe considering. I have had multiple procedures with him, and would never consider seeing anyone else. He's the kind of doctor that you can trust blindly with your health, and will always give his paitients priority.

Bivik Shah, MD Columbus , OH

Tummy Tuck

Rude staff, disorganized, and unprofessional.

Bivik Shah, MD Columbus , OH

Breast Implant Revision

More self confidence, more comfortable with my body. I knew what to expect, before and after and I love the surgery results!

Bivik Shah, MD Columbus , OH

Breast Reduction

The results!! As someone who never had surgery prior to my breast reduction, liposuction and breast lift, I can't say anything bad about the experience. I wasn't in pain because Dr. Shaw told me exactly how to proceed with medication, cleaning and due diligence in order to heal correctly. I appreciate the time and effort and care I had with my procedure as well.

Breast Implant Revision

I really liked his bedside manner, made me feel very comfortable. His staff is very accommodating as well. Worked well around my busy schedule.

Bivik Shah, MD Columbus , OH

Liposuction

Information given at initial appt was different than the next preop appt. outcome of my procedure is not what I was told or expected as a possibility. I got a second opinion afterwards and this surgeon asked if the person who did this was an actual plastic surgeon. Still have to wait and see if it improves. Will likely have to spend a lot more money to fix.

Bivik Shah, MD Columbus , OH

Breast Augmentation

Everyone was very positive and excited for me. Helped the process greatly I have a positive attitude

Bivik Shah, MD Columbus , OH

Breast Implant Removal

The staff at CIPS are always polite and respectful. They always treat you like the number one patient, regardless of what you are having done and why you are there. The office offers plenty of small touches that add up to a fantastic experience. Things that I do not see offered at other plastic surgery offices. Always a delight to visit CIPS I am able to run long distances and improve my running time. While I loved my implants, they no longer fit my lifestyle. I am so glad I was able to get them and have them removed in such a wonderful atmosphere.

Bivik Shah, MD Columbus , OH

Tummy Tuck

My surgeon, as well as all of the staff, were very pleasant, understanding and made me feel comfortable. Also, they were very fast and efficient, I had no wait time, I was in and out very quickly and effectively. They made the entire experience as easy and simple as it could've possibly been. I will definitely return for any future procedures. My everyday life is simple and delightful ever since my procedure. I look in the mirror everyday and smile, because I know that I am happy and deeply satisfied with myself and now my body as well. All of my clothes fit perfectly now, I no longer feel self conscious and I am completely in love with my body. No more trying on 10 outfits and still not loving the way I look. I can even wear belly shirts and bikinis and feel beautiful! I am beyond happy with my decision, and I am so thankful to myself for making this decision for me and only me, and of course to my surgeon for doing such an amazing job!

Breast Augmentation

I had breast augmentation performed by Dr. Shah after researching this and surgeons for years. I feel more confident within my body and more feminine. I wish I had done it years ago. Dr. Shah and his staff were very supportive and thorough. The whole experience was beyond what I was expecting. I would recommend Dr. Shah to everyone.
