I had a procedure about 2 years ago and I am on the schedule again for another procedure. The office staff was very pleasant and took a lot of time to talk to me about my options. When I arrived for my consult I did not have to wait very long and I was glad to not walk into a full waiting room. I loved how private my consultation felt and Dr. Vagotis answered all of my question and she seemed very passionate about the work she was going to do for me. I highly recommend Dr. Vagotis.

Dr. Vagotis and her staff are amazing! She is a very honest surgeon and never once tried to upsell me like the others I had met. He staff is extremely caring and willing to help in any way. The level of privacy the practice offers was exactly what I was looking for and I could not be happier with my results.

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!!

Thank you for the kind words Tami! It is our goal to provide every patient with the level of privacy and superior customer service they deserve. I'm pleased to hear that you are so happy with your results!

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.
We value the time and privacy of our patients. We make every attempt to schedule in a manner that not only allows our patients one-on-one time with the doctor or esthetician, but also respects their privacy by not having to walk past a waiting room filled with people. I am so sorry you did not see the value in this and that you felt you were pushed into receiving a consult for something you did not want.

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.
Mild bruising after an injection is common, it may last 4-7 days and can vary with each patient. To minimize bruising prior to treatment, our practice recommends avoiding anti inflammatories and alcohol a few days before the injection. All of this information is disclosed in our consent forms which every patient signs prior to receiving an injection. If you feel you were overcharged, we would be more than happy to look into the matter for you. Please call our office at 616-285-6400.

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.
We are so happy for you! Dr. Vagotis differs in her technique by providing a more natural rejuvenation instead of the wind blown look that we see all too often in magazines. We all love working with Dr. Vagotis! She has a wonderful personality and genuinely cares.
