I had multiple procedures from my breasts down to my thighs and I couldn't be happier with the results! Dr. Michaels was able to help me pick the implant size that I envisioned for myself and would feel comfortable with in my lifestyle. He also seemed to be able to grasp my idea of beautiful because we don't all aspire to be rail thin. Dr. Michaels is a true artist, look no further! Thank you Dr. Michaels and team!

Dr Michaels always listens to what I would like done and then tells me how he will accomplish it! He never pushes extra treatments. He suggests that maybe next visit his suggestion would b something that I would like to try. He seems genuinely interested in my well being as well as my appearance!

What a great find, 2 of my friends referred me, and all 3 of us have gone with Dr. Michaels. My scar is not visible and it is well hidden. The amount of time staff spends with you is beyond exceptional. I will refer any one who asks! TOP DOC!

This practice is amazing. Leah is very helpful, personable and very responsive! Dr. Michaels is down to earth, easy to talk to and is genuinely interested in meeting his patient's needs. His bedside manner is amazing, and he is brilliant at what he does. I saw him for a revision and I'm in love with his work. Thanks, Dr. Michael!

My experience with Dr. Michaels has been wonderful. I've had two very different procedures with him and am so happy with the results! Not only was he kind and compassionate to me but his skill as a surgeon is excellent. His staff was very professional and kind as well. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone in need of his services. He exceeded my expectations and I will be forever grateful for the care I received. Thank you, Dr. Michaels and staff, for making my experience a positive on
