Body Lift Reviews (259)

Everything went so smoothly. Things were explained so well before proceedure and follow up appts went smoothly also. Dr. Was very kind and thorough as well as rest of staff. I am SO happy with results. Would do it all over again. I feel beautiful again and not so fat. Heath wise helps also. Not so out of breath. I have back issues and removing that excess skin helps relieve some of that pain.


All of the staff were prompt professional and friendly. Questions were answered quickly, and my results from my procedures are excellent and what was promised.


This has been life changing. Dr Hunt was the last surgeon with whom I discussed my options. He provided comprehensive information then answered several questions to help me understand what was involved. His professional approach was considered and sensitive. Even though I felt overwhelmed with what appeared necessary to be done, I did not feel pressured or even encouraged to make any decisions. He gave conservative, candid and objective advice about appropriate treatment options, then left me to consider them. His conservative approach and information about elements of some procedures designed to reduce their invasiveness, gave me confidence to proceed with surgeries. Following my detailed written feedback and preference to go with Dr Hunt, my GP's advice was, "I concur". While in hospital following surgeries, Dr Hunt listened to any concerns I had, considered from my perspective as a layperson, then addressed them in a way that allayed any anxieties I felt. This is comforting when you are dealing with strong, extended pain and feel vulnerable and powerless, relying on the care of strangers for most of your needs. Ciara (CNS) was positive and encouraging on her daily visits post operatively. Her professional advice and support while in hospital and at clinic visits in the following weeks, provided necessary information to progress my recovery. Pre and post operatively, she was always available to answer any questions and welcomed any requests. My GP, who teaches and supervises new graduates, told me prior to the second series of procedures that she was "very impressed" with Dr Hunt and his professional care in my circumstances. She followed me out as I left her rooms and repeated this.


It's been fantastic!! I can finally wear pants at my waist instead of my hips, I can buy normal shirts at the store in a L or XL instead of needing a *Tall* size because of my height and where I had to wear my pants - it's just overall life-changing. I've got so much more confidence in running or exercising that I'd never have without it. Dr. Gingrass will do absolutely everything in her power to make you as prepared and satisfied with your procedure as possible. She warned me about every little thing and when the dilemma with the infection occurred, she helped manage the issue with me being 2 hours away (in Chattanooga).


Overall experience was very nice. The staff was very attentive and thorough.


I am extremely satisfied with Dr. Gonce, his staff and the outcome of my lower body lift. Dr. Gonce spent time marking me up to make sure he could get every ounce of loose skin he could safely. I'm so happy and glad I made the decision to go with the lower body lift instead of the tummy tuck. Dr. Gonce said I would not be happy with the results of a tummy tuck as I had too much loose skin. As a result, my clothes fit great and have even gone down one size in pants. I feel like I can wear anything now with confidence.


Dr. Henry is the best! Wonderful staff from start to finish! Dr. Henry is perfect & does the best job!


Dr. Clayton and his staff were professional and made me feel at ease. They were immensely thorough in preparing me for my procedures, and kept me well informed throughout the entire process. They were always available to answer questions and address concerns. Every person in the office was warm and helpful. Also, the experience at the surgical center was excellent throughout the check in, anesthesia and post op. The nurses were very attentive and caring.I know that selecting Dr. Clayton & his staff to perform my procedures and care for me was the right decision. I am not yet fully recovered, but I already feel better about myself. I am excited for my clothes to fit normally and to be able to see the benefits of my diet and exercise choices.


I felt like Dr Roth really listened to what I wanted out of this surgery & took great care during surgery to deliver that. How slim my hips/lower tummy area is!


Extremely professional in every aspect.I will be returning for an arm lift in 2019. I feel and look better overall.


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


It was an embarrassing surgery and I was very comfortable and it changed my life for the better , in multiple ways, I was always made to feel good and appropriate and at ease. I wish I was able to do this a long time ago.


This is the most professional and kind staff that I have worked with in the medical industry.


The staff explained everything very well up front so I knew what to expect. The patient coordinator, nurse, physician, and front office staff are all very welcoming and personable. The results from my surgery are just what I expected and I’m very happy with it. The best thing about my procedure has been the results. I couldn’t be happier with how it has turned out so far.


I have waited for 8 years to finally get the body lift procedure. The entire experience from the phone call to schedule consultation to being 5 days post op has left me 100% confident that I chose the right Dr to change my life. I could not be happier with the entire staff and facilities. “Nothing just happens.” I never felt so comfortable and at ease in my decision after meeting Dr Hall and staff. I would assume that no one on staff has ever had a body lift such as mine performed, yet there is a empathetic commonality that is felt with everyone. The understanding that every patients story is different. The self reflective attitude that every patients journey has value.


The surgeon and staff are well informed and knowledgeable. They make sure that you are comfortable with procedure and expectations. I have always felt I was in good hands. Very friendly and efficient staff. A total transformation in my life style. Able to live life without worrying about rashes, etc.


Dr Lundeby and the staff at Shape were friendly, informative, and timely when I had questions. I will ( and already have) recommend Dr Lundeby to anyone considering plastic surgery.


Dr. Maxwell is an amazing artist and a fantastic woman. Her staff is kind, caring, and helpful as well. I’m very satisfied with my results and care.


Having to show your horrible, naked body to anyone other than your spouse is intimidating. However, Dr. Vitenas was very clinical in his evaluations and never said anything uncomfortable about my appearance other than how he could improve it. He was very straight forward about what he could do, but never blunt. I appreciated that. Post op, he took another set of photos and compared them to my pre op photos. I could cry again thinking about how Dr. V changed my life. I thought I was stuck with that pre op body. What he did for my appearance and self confidence I had thought was impossible in my lifetime. All the nurses were incredible, talking to me on the phone, making sure I was comfortable and were very compassionate. Everyone at the facility was extremely professional.


Loved Dr Stoker. He truly loves what he does and it shows. I will be going back for all my procedures to be performed by Dr Stoker!!
