[patient name]

Breast Augmentation

The surgeon and his staff make you feel comfortable, they are friendly and personable, and very informative about the procedure.

Tummy Tuck

I feel amazing I have always wanted to have a tummy tuck and after I lost the 50 pounds and got rid of extra skin has been a dream. Dr Carney is the great surgeon and his staff is wonderful. Everybody there just makes you feel so at ease.


Dr. Carney gave me fillers for my frown lines between my eyebrows, and he gave me fillers for my marionette lines below the ends of my lips. These lines are now at skin level, not indented, and I love the look. Thank you very much. The procedure result is that I no longer look mad, and the marionette lines are gone. Thank you very much.

Breast Augmentation

From the moment I called to every appointment I've had the staff has been wonderful. Ive worked in customer service for over 20 years and in the last 5 years have seen so many doctors. Dr Carney and his staff are exceptional they make you feel like you are the most important person, I've laughed and smiled with everyone ive been in contact with. I believe that this is the second most important thing to a practice the first being the quality of medical services provided which are excellent as well. I want to thank Dr. Carney and all his staff for this.

Tummy Tuck

Personal review of what procedure was best for my body type and age. One on one with Dr. Carney. Overall staff very helpful

ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant

The ENTIRE staff was more than accommodating, professional and personable and made what was a tedious and uncomfortable day long procedure as pleasant as possible. I was impressed that the entire day was devoted to my procedure, even bringing in several specialists. Everyone kept my wife in the loop and informed. I could not have asked for better care, before, during and after. I was well aware of Dr. Carney's sterling reputation being a long time Virginia Beach resident. When I was aware that he uses the Artas system for hair restoration, there was no need for additional Dr.'s consultations. This surgery could not have been handled any better. Again, many thanks to all who were involved.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

I was highly satisfied with Dr Carney and his ENTIRE staff. But, I was expecting better results.


The staff was friendly and welcoming. Nice, clean atmosphere which is highly important for a first impression.


The women I spoke to on the phone, as well as the woman who responded to my initial email request for a consult, were very friendly. It is when I arrived for the consult that I had a different experience. The nurse who first met with me was polite, but I didn’t feel she expressed any real “warmth” when she spoke with me. I was surprised and a little humiliated by the “exam.” I was simply asked to raise my shirt while she pinched my fat rolls. The nurse then proceeded to talk about the benefits of liposuction vs cool sculpting, the non-surgical procedure I was more interested in. She did share her own personal experiences with liposuction and provided answers about my questions regarding down time and restrictions following that surgery. When Dr. Carney came to the room, he performed the same physical “exam” as the nurse. Again, humiliating to me, but especially so since the doctor didn’t smile or express any warmth at all. He also implied that liposuction would be the better option for me. He left, and the nurse provided me with a written estimate for the cool sculpting procedure which included a discount. She said the estimate was good for six months, and that if I was interested in liposuction, i could come back for more info on that. If I choose to do any procedure, I would come here for Carney’s reputation. However, because I did not appear to be a possible client—that is not fully made up or dressed in designer clothes—I don’t think I was taken seriously. Despite the high cost, I could afford the work.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Carney and his staff were very professional and helpful with the information they provided for me. I am planning to have my breast augmentation done with their practice in the near future. At this time I am saving money to get the procedure done hopefully soon.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

forehead is smooth. The staff is very friendly

Eyelid Surgery

Dr Carney is amazing!

Hair Transplant

I found your office to be a first class operation and your staff was so very nice and that helps a person to fell relax. I will certainly return to your office in the near future. I thank each of you for being so very nice to me.


I felt comfortable with all of the staff. They explained everything very well and answered any questions. They were always willing to work around my schedule.

Breast Augmentation

From the front office to the consultation to the pre op to the surgery and after was amazing. The entire staff made me and my husband feel very welcome and confident that I would be happy with my surgery and they were right! Being 51 I thought I would also need a lift with my breast augmentation and told the doctor this. Dr. Carney could have made another 4 or 5 thousand by doing a lift also but he was honest with me and said I did not need one. I am EXTREMELY HAPPY and will and have recommended people to The Carney Center!!!!! I can wear anything and feel beautiful!

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Wrinkles are almost gone. Very professional environment, very nice attitude to the patient, excellent procedure done.


The removal of my frown lines. I was extremely satisfied with the professionalism of the staff and the esatics of the facility.


Treat you like family, like they really care. I was never worried I always felt safe there. Any questions I have the answer at anytime of day or night. Always had a way to communicate with my doctor. This is more than just a business. I moved away and would travel back to have a procedure. Great work and great people.

Breast Augmentation

Kind and knowledgeable staff and surgeon, with no significant waiting when office visited for consultation
