Dr. Virden did an implant reduction and lift about 8 years ago for me and did an amazing job. About 6 years later I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (actually had first MS episode in 1994). It took me a while with research before I decided to have the implants removed. I saw Dr. Virden and he was so supportive about my chose. I am over 3 months post breast explantation and I couldn't be happier. Dr. Virden and his staff are excellent and so easy to work with. Both surgeries with Dr. Virden were great successes! :)

Breast explantation due to MS diagnosis – Jun 02, 2021

Dr. Virden did my breast augmentation over 14 years ago and he did a phenomenal job! I got so many complements on the placement and size. A few months ago, I determined it was time to get them out. He is the ONLY surgeon in Northern Nevada that will remove implants via the En Bloc removal method (it takes the most skilled and dedicated surgeon to do this method). I am so happy that I choose him to remove them. He assured me that I didn't need a lift, and he was correct. I couldn't be happier with my results and his whole team. They all treated me like family through the whole process. I would never go anywhere else!

In October of 2018 I had a neck lift and brow lift with Dr. Virden. I am now 71 years old. I look fabulous, maybe 50! He & his staff & surgery center staff are all knowledgeable, considerate and caring. Dr. Virden also gave me a breast augmentation. My breasts are large and look natural.

I had my surgery scheduled paid for it and I over heard him call me a derogatory name and I canceled. He refused to give me back my payment.

I had an explant performed by Dr. Virden! From the first visit to post op the care was top notch. Friendly staff, great surgical center, and most important and caring and skilled surgeon! My explant was done en bloc and Dr. Virden provided a video of explants with the capsule still on and showed the removal. I was so surprised at how quickly I started healing. Dr. Virden has a technique that makes this process the most comfortable it can be! His office gave me Arnica which helped reduce bruising and muscle trauma a lot! I recommend Dr. Virden to anyone looking for a skilled surgeon with a friendly and confident bed side manner. Dr. Virden takes plenty of time to explain the procedure and answer questions!

Breast reduction - love it! Amazing craftsmanship . Great bedside manner. Excellent staff that truly cares. Prompt, no waiting around for appointments. Easy follow up visits. Not nearly as painful as expected and Dr. Virden set me at ease every step of the way. Thanks for making such a positive impact on my life :).

Let me begin by saying, from start to finish, this office is the BEST experience I have ever had in a medical environment. Dr. Virden and his staff are truly a cut above the rest - you'd be hard pressed to get better treatment. I feel that I could not have been in better hands or had better results or care and follow up anywhere else. I have had so many people who have had cosmetic surgery themselves, compliment me on mine and say they wish their results were as perfect. I so highly recommend!

Dr. Virden is the absolute best there is! He did my upper and lower eye surgery and the outcome is far more than I ever expected! He’s an amazing doctor and truly cares about you. You are treated and feel like family whenever you go into his office. I would give him a ?? % recommendation as a doctor who truly changed my life! I am forever grateful for what you did for me. I put my ultimate trust in you and you went above and beyond. Thank you Dr. Virden, you are truly the best??

My first experience with Dr. Virden was November of 2001. He performed an augmentation with saline implants. His ability to inform his patients of what to expect and guidance as to what will work the best for you personally is certainly on his list of talents, at the top of that list of talents however, is the finished product of course! My first experience led me back 17 years later to have slightly larger silicone implants replace the original saline implants, & I couldn't be happier.

I just saw Dr. Virden for gynecomastia surgery to remove 2 large lumps in below the nipple. I couldn't be happier with the results. The pain is very minimal and, already on day 2, my chest looks way better without sticking out in my shirts and being self-conscience. I can only attribute this to his expertise. I came from out of town and I'm so glad I did! He and his staff were attentive; answered all my questions, and helped me feel more comfortable with something I was extremely nervous about.

I had a great experience with Dr. Virden. I chose him to perform breast augmentation after consulting with five other surgeons. He took a lot of time of time with me over the course of several visits, and never seemed in a hurry, he was patient with my many questions and concerns. The day of surgery went well, he personally called me the evening after surgery to ensure I was ok. My results are amazing! I am so much more confident with my new look and so glad I chose Dr. Virden!

I have been a patient of Dr. Virden for over ten years now. I have had breast implants removed, a facial scar removed and most recently a face lift with a chin reduction, which turned out perfect. I have never ever had a better Doctor, or medical staff. From the surgery center to his office you will be treated like family. He listens and is truly genuine every time. He is conservative. He had me wait until I was 60 to do my lift and I'm glad I did. Don't wait call for a consultation today!
