What People Say About Dr. Paul Vanek Jr, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
I knew several friends that went to Dr. Vanek for different procedures, so I decided to consult him on a tummy tuck. I could not have had a better experience. I ended up having the tummy tuck and a inner thigh lift. I am 110% satisfied with the outcome. Love, love, love him! If you are in need or thinking about having a plastic surgery procedure, go see Dr. Vanek.

I heard great things about Dr. Vanek from a friend who went to his office, but when I called for a health issue was told I was to pay $100+ for the appointment even though my insurance has no co-pay. The person who answered the phone said that this was the policy for all appointments even for the insurances they accept. I recently had bariatric surgery and was planning on using the plastic surgeon who was able to help me with this health issue for reconstruction later on, will now look elsewhere

Dr. Vanek performed a breast augmentation on me in August, 2017. I had assymetry due to rapid weight loss, and my main goal was to not even appear that I had anything done. He did a fantastic job. They look so natural, and are just perfect. I couldnt have asked for a better result. The staff was also so supportive and engaging. It really made me feel like I was part of their family, and are always there to answer my questions.

Dr. Vanek is a highly skilled and compassionate surgeon. I received a replacement of my 20+ years ruptured silicone breast implants with memory gel implants and a breast lift. Followup treatment of Aspen Rehabilitation Ultrasound Therapy administered by Massage Therapist Jeni Mathis helped substantially with excessive scar tissue buildup. Vanek Plastic Surgery's friendly staff members were very professional and knowledgeable...I am very pleased with the results of my experience.

When I am making a decision about my health, there are three things that are very important to me: knowledge, skill and kindness. After being diagnosed with breast cancer, I needed to find a surgeon with these characteristics and I found them in Dr. Vanek and his staff. In Dr. Vanek, you will find a compassionate, knowledgeable doctor and skillful surgeon who cares deeply about your fight against breast cancer and will help you rebuild what may be lost because of this disease.

500 characters is not enough to express how astounding my results are. I met with five other surgeons. After deciding on Dr. Vanek, I knew I made the right choice. He took care of my deviated septum and my cosmetic problems all at once. I went to him for fixing my nose and also a chin implant. Very professional, it looks amazing, the staff is amazing, and I would recommend him to anyone searching for advice or surgery.
