    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.

    I highly recommend Dr. Vagotis. I had bilateral breast reduction, 5 days post op and my results are FABULOUS! Dr. Vagotis took time to explain the procedure, answer my questions and gave very personalized care. I never felt rushed. Her office and nursing staff were very professional and friendly. I am planning to go back for another procedure, Coolsculpting, can't wait! TF

    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.
