I had a breast reduction six months ago and recently had my follow up appointment. I am so impressed with Dr. Vagotis, as she is determined that her patients are happy with the results. I am extremely happy!! I have also had CoolSculpting done in her office with great results. Dr. Vagotis's team are incredible, helpful and understanding. I highly recommend Dr. Vagotis and her team!!

Scheduling was easy cause the place was empty. Tried to up sell the kitchen sink. Was not relaxing. I wanted a facial- not a boob job. It sucked and was expensive... will not be back.

BAD Bottox. I was bruised for days after in my forehead and it hurt when I got it put in. I had not had this experience the one time I had it before. I also think I was overcharged.

Would never go back here again. Major surgical complications. Infections and open wounds around incisions. The implant literally started to show through the hole under my breast. Had to go back to surgery 2 weeks after to reclose the area under my breast- which I had to pay an ADDITIONAL $2900 for. She was rude and made it sound like it was my fault, but her nurse admitted later that they had used suture on me that is normally not used. Horrific experience. Missed 3 weeks of work.

I've had 2 separate plastic surgeries performed by Dr. Vagotis (5 years apart). They both involved my neck and face. Results were just what I wanted, and not too obvious. I'm extremely satisfied. Dr. Vagotis is on the conservative side as far as surgeons go, and I trust her completely. She also has a great surgical team, many of whom have been with her a long time. So it's not just patients who are loyal to her, but the people who work for her, too. I think that says a lot.
