I had my procedure done the day after Christmas. I have always hated certain parts of my body and I finally decided to get them done. I decided to research Sonobello and give them a call to schedule a consult. I was scheduled to see Crystal in the Scottsdale office who by the way is beautiful inside and out. I absolutely love her. She explained everything in detail of what I should expect. Even though I was terrified of being awake during the procedure she still made me feel safe and reassured me I would be fine. My next appointment was to meet Dr Bevins who was also awesome. I love his sense of humor and his honesty. I love when a physicians can be honest and tell you that we as people should take better care of ourselves. Most people would be offended, but I was truly motivated. I can't wait to see him in 3 months to show him what his talk did to help me change my life. The day of my procedure I was greated by an awesome nurse who made me feel totally comfortable. I was given my meds and the procedure was done. All I remember was singing the songs on the radio with the doctor. During my post op days at home I received calls from Rachel (who is also awesome) and Dr Bevins to see how I was recovering. Sono bello has definitely changed my life and has given me back my confidence I was looking for. If you are looking for your life to be changed and to have awesome people help you do it. Sonobello is definitely the place you want to go.
I had a good experience with Sono Bello
in Scottsdale. When I scheduled my liposuction procedure which included my upper and lower abdomen and my waist - I was very nervous.
The results I came away with are very good results. It took a few months for my slimmer figure to expose itself but it was worth the wait.
Working out at the gym and eating a sensible diet helped me to stay motivated to reclaim the figure I had in my youth.
I lost a total of five inches in my waist and three inches through my abdomen. I feel wonderful and no longer hide under baggy clothes.
If you're searching for a group of physicians to perform a liposuction procedure -- look no further than Sono Bello.
You will meet the best staff in Arizona! You feel like you are part of the family the second you walk in the door. Dr. Desvigne had the best personality and made me feel at ease through this procedure! I just want to hug him every time I see him! All the staff members treat you like you are family and take the best care of you! I even received phone calls, one from Dr. Desvigne and then one from my nurse, Christina to check on how I was doing! Talk about customer service! Even at my one week follow up, the staff still treated me like family and truly cared about my recovery and always asked me to call if I need anything! I love Scottsdale’s Sono Bello! I would recommend anyone to this location!!
I had my procedure on my belly and love
handles the end of May 2012. Was somewhat nervous, but after going in that morning my mind was put to ease. Dr. Bivens was Great! Very personable, as well as the entire team at Sono Bello. Everyone made me feel comfortable and were so nice. I was never in any discomfort while having the procedure. A little pushing sensation was about all that I felt.
Upon completion and over the next week or two, I had minor complications with swelling and hardness. Nothing to be too concerned with at this point. I was concerned at first, but once I realized this sort of thing can happen it was fine. I noticed a difference around my middle immediately, despite the hardness and sensitivity. I most definitely had swelling and was lumpy from the scar tissue, but only I felt this as it was not apparent to anyone seeing my while I was dressed . After having this sort of procedure, is definitely something which must be worked at. Do not expect to have a flat stomach instantly. Simply just does not disappear without some work. Scar tissue forms around the area's after lipo. One has to be committed in trying to break this up as quickly as possible. Hardness occurred in my stomach, but also a lot of belly fat was removed. Much of the hardness has lasted several months, but is to be expected. I wish I had been more prepared and had prior knowledge of this. It would have made me feel better knowing this in advance. It was my first time ever having liposuction. Knowing what I know now, I would go through it all again, without hesitation. It's scary not knowing what to expect. I would also recommend Dr. Bivens and Sono Bello to everyone.
Had to have a second minor procedure which was complimentary and lasted about 15 minutes. It has now been five months and I am doing GREAT! Every day I look and feel better. I no longer have that roll around my middle and can actually see my abs again! In my early 50's and fat tends to build up around the middle. No matter how hard I worked out at the gym it simply would not go away. Most is gone now and I have lost over 4" around my middle. WOW!!! I was not heavy to begin with, but just didn't like the belly. Had that roll around my stomach which carried over to the sides. I feel and look so much better. People notice something different about me! And, it feels great to have my college physique back again. I still have some scar tissue along with some hardness, but now just confined to my belly. I anticipate it to be completely gone within another month or two.
Again, I cannot emphasize one has to be committed in doing something about it after having this kind of procedure. It will not just go away without effort and commitment on your part.
Thank you to Dr. Bivens and the entire staff for everything! You have all been so great to work with! I look forward to seeing you on my next visit. My last few visits I have worked with Aggie. She has been really Great to work with!
Had a great initial experience. A few months after I had my procedure I noticed my thighs were uneven and was scheduled for a revision. Service at this point was terrible. It was clear they did not want to deal with you if you we're happy with your first visit. I was made to wait excessively long times for the new doctor as my original doctor was no longer available (**a major red flag). And asked to re-schedule my appointments the day of. To me this was completely unacceptable. Between the time of my first appointment and my 6 month check up Sono Bello in Scottsdale had moved into a much larger office. Something I think affects their service. It seemed tone all about the money and not the client. Anyway I had my revision and it seemed fine. Though sonobello seemed not to care much about following up with me. I have since regained the "fat" that was removed. Which from my research only happened when the procedure is not done correctly. While I do not regret my decisions I would not reccommend Sono Bello to anyone!!!!!
I am so happy I did the surgery at Sono Bello :))) Best thing I did for myself in years. I almost backed out at the last minute because I was scared but the surgery seemed to go by pretty fast and almost painless. Dr Bivens was comforting to me and talked me through everything he did. I had my outer thighs and Banana roll done, they were my tough spots to lose even though I work out regularly. I bruised a bit more then usual but that's normal for me. It went away by week 3 and I started seeing results right away. I'm now down almost 10lbs and seriously loving my new wardrobe! Thank you Dr Bivens and thank you for all the healthy eating tips you gave me.
I'm 42 and in good health. In my 20
and 30 I never had to work out for I had an amazing metabolism. But after I had my daughter at 35 it just seemed that I could not get rid of that last 15 pounds of baby weight.
I had my procedure done on June12th (lower abdomen and waist). I can't put into words my excitement from the results in just 1 week.
Dr. Gellis is a true artist! The staff at Sono Bello were so friendly and caring. They made me feel so comfortable, which in turn took away any anxiety I might have had.
I have already recommended Sono Bello to my friends who were thinking about lipo. If you are needing a little or a lot of help with problem areas. Then Sono Bello is the place for you.
I went to sono bello because I needed
help with my belly, it was large and sort of hung over my belt. I was extremely nervous to have Dr. Bivens look at my ugly body and do the laser lipo.
Dr. Bivens was so amazing. I did not feel a thing, a little nudging and pulling but that was it. In fact Dr. Bivens continued to ask me through out the procedure what I was feeling, how I was feeling. The doctor was very thorough. I was so nervous at the beginning but he made me feel so comfortable and by the time it was over he had me feeling as if we had been friends forever.
My belly is beautiful now, it's gone. I love myself now and I owe it all to the wonderful, kind and compassionate Dr. Bivens @ sono bello. I never thought I would look so nice and slim again but I do now!
Thank you Dr.Bivens, you are the best!
At Sonobello not only did i get great results, they have a great friendly staff, they were also able to make accommodations with my busy schedule. I would definitely recommend them. Thanks for everything Aggie!
I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with your surgical skills! As I read the followup emails being provided I feel that I am experiencing all the positive effects of the procedure and nearly none of the negative effects. I am not experiencing any channeling, bruising was minimal, and the nerve tingling sensation is limited to only the obliques. As I ramp up my exercise routine I feel confident the results of the procedure will be even more apparent. Its exciting to see that I no longer have that "muffin top" look that bothered me for years regardless of the amount of exercise I did. Thank you again for providing me that sculpted look I have been trying to achieve for so long! Also, I truly enjoyed my consultation with Anne Sawyer. She was hilarious and made me very comfortable and excited about going forward with the procedure. Thanks ladies!
