An Appreciative Patient

I learned about Dr. Babovic from a friend. I wanted to first see him about my arms. I met with him and Donna and we decided to do liposuction. That went really well. Donna was by my side the entire time. It was a little painful, but the end results were awesome! After that I decided to have liposuction for my love handles. I thought it was going to be really painful. They numbed my sides, and Donna made it really comfortable for me. I got to listen to my own music for the hour-long procedure. It’s those little things that mean a lot. He had me come back to do a touch up because he wanted to make sure it was perfect. He did great follow through and he really stands behind his work.

I've also had other cosmetic things done in the past. Everyone is so friendly and helpful with everything. It makes the whole experience that much better. I’ll definitely continue to come back. I know it’s a little more expensive, but I have a doctor and a great team I can trust to do the best work. Their machines are state-of-the-art and I feel like I get better results here than anywhere else. I also really appreciate that Dr. Babovic and Donna are really honest with me and what needs to be done and what doesn’t. I really appreciate the professional feedback that I receive when I am with them. I have nothing but good things to say about the team.
