“I just wanted to be able to sit down and not see my rolls !
I am so pleased with my results! I actually have a shape again!
But an unexpected result sureprised me....
I can breathe better! Maybe because my diaphragm can move again...?
The experience was totally worth it and everyone from the moment i arrive for my consultation was so positive.
There was absolutely no pressure to make a decision right away, but im so glad i did!
Shout out to my nurse Elizabeth! She was
Great!”

“This was a great experience! The results have been amazing. It was so easy and the down time was only 3-4 days! Everyone was so nice and professional. I would highly recommend them! I drove 2 hours for this. And would do it again in a heart beat!”

“From the receptionist Charlotte to the consultant... they were so warm and welcoming and as much as i was nervous...i found myself smiling. The consultation was great. Darcy is just great!! Very warm, friendly and genuinely kind. On my day of surgery....i gotta say it was a great experience. My nurse Danielle was cool...they even asked me what my favorite artist was....soon i got lost in the sultry tunes of John Legend and I was so relaxed that i fell asleep. I could hear Danielle's beautiful voice singing along....and her gentle reassurances...I am so glad i made this decision. The only uncomfortable part for me was the pictures...but they made it bearable.”

“Although I was terrified, the staff assured me it would be ok. From the front desk, to the nurses, they are all so pleasant. Both appointments thus far were a breeze and they were on time. Most importantly, I received a phone call from my nurse, Darcy and my Doctor just to check on me. Now how special is that”

“Was. We push for my consultation but as soon as I walked in Charlotte greeted me with a smile and had such a wonderful presence that it made me feel comfortable and happy. Then going back to meet and talk to my consultant Darcy, she answered every question I could think of, was fun and sweet and made me feel confident in making this decision for myself. Her being so knowledgeable as well as all the research I’ve already done I was extremely happy to finally make myself happy and do something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. From the front desk staff and Charlotte, Darcy and my wonderful nurse and doctor, this was such incredible place to get it done. Plus I’m so thrilled with my results so far and I haven’t even completely healed yet. It’s also great to know they are always available to answer any questions post surgery in case I have any.”

“I have loved my experience with Sono Bello! All of the staff has been amazing to work with. Darcy Blasing has been such a great representative of Sono Bello! She made me feel very comfortable with the process and has been such a great communicator. She really made me feel at home and was one of the main decision factors that I choose to go with Sono Bello for my procedures. She even talked me into doing more areas than I originally planned. She is awesome and I highly recommend her! Thanks for all your help Darcy!”

“Sono Bello lives up to their words. I have no regrets about having this procedure done but. I wish I was told in the beginning on how long it would take to see my results. It's been almost 2 months and I see a DRASTIC CHANGE. I cannot wait for my FULL RESULTS which will probably be another 4-6 Months. I would DEFINITELY RECOMMEND Sono Bello to anyone who want to look and feel better. Patience is needed also. Sono you ROCK!!!!”

Called me the same evening to see how I was doing and stated I could call him with any issues. Now that's stellar customer service.”

“Darcey was amazing!! She made me so comfortable having to show my “belly” fat to her and never pasted judgement. She also took it upon herself to get some type one diabetic information, trying to help me get my labs in order. Because of her I am very motivated to get my labs level so I can return in August and have my procedure!!”

“The staff was great. I was disappointed that my 1st appointment I waited an hour. Then on the day of my procedure I received a call at 6:30 am asking me to come in right away as they had a cancellation. My original time was 9:00. I told them I would take a shower and get on the road. I was just about to leave and received another call saying the 1st appointment just came late and asked that I now not come until 9:30. That 2nd call should have never been made to me. It is nerve wrecking enough going through some thing like this that I have never done only to be jerked around the day of. Also I did not feel like I was given the true information in regards to recovery. I was made to feel like it would be fine to go back to work on Monday when my procedure was Thursday. I was not in any shape to return to work that soon. I would not recommend anyone returning that soon after lipo on your upper and lower stomach along with your waist. I wasn't even off my pain medicine until the following Friday. I am only 12 days post op and still very swollen and uncomfortable so I cannot give a review on my final result yet. At this point I cannot honestly say I would do it again. I felt like I did a lot of research but I was not prepared for the amount of swelling that came along with this. I look and feel 9 months pregnant and I was told my swelling would not make me any bigger than I was before the procedure. That obviously is not true. I was 125lbs with a BMI of 25 at 4'11 the day of my procedure.”

“I was skeptical and nervous about having a procedure done, so much so that I cancelled my first surgery. Then after more in depth conversations with my consultant, Julie, I decided to go through with my procedure. It has been 6 weeks since my surgery and I am sooooo excited to see my final results. I already look amazing and feel so much better about myself than I did before and I still have some minimal swelling.

Everyone at Sonobello, from my consultant, my three nurses, Dr. Volk and the rest of the team, are so professional and helpful. They were always there to answer any and all my questions (and I had a lot) both before and after my procedure. Thank you for making my Sonobello procedure such a pleasant experience and for being so personable.”

“I’m very happy with the kind & courteous staff at the practice. From beginning to end, starting with my consultant, to the nurses, to Dr Volk and the followup care I received, everyone provided outstanding service.

I’m currently at my 1-week post stage of recovery. I’m eager to see my final results in 3 months and am hopeful that they will align with my expectations prior to surgery. I’ll be sure to post an update then. If it’s in line with the great service I’ve had so far, I’m sure I’ll be pleased with the results!

If you’re considering body sculpting, I recommend Sono Bello. Less invasive procedures and at 1-week post-op, I can tell you there is very little downtime. Excited to see my final results!

XOXOXO Everyone at the Practice!”

“The staff and medical team were great! Every step of the process was thoroughly explained and smooth. I was able to talk directly to my doctor when I had questions late at night after the procedure. The results were fantastic and still seeing positive changes. I highly recommend Sono Bello.”
Elisheva on Birdeye

“The overall experience was quite an adventure. I did not do my due diligence in reviewing the process beforehand and was not prepared with the right questions at the pre-op appointment. I had 7 areas done. That may have contributed to the excruciating pain towards the end of the procedure. I am assuming the local anesthetic was wearing off as the doctor got to my last areas. Also, I have side effects to the anxiety pills they offered prior to the surgery and they did not have the drug I preferred. I was given 2 Xanax, which I'd never had before. Shortly after leaving the facility I had a serious reaction and I ended up in the hospital the next night for observation in case it was a TIA. There was no evidence of a TIA so we are putting the blame on the Xanax. I suggest the facility, at the pre-op appointment, discuss the anxiety drugs to be offered so workarounds can be provided. I am rating my overall experience as a "3" at this time because I am only 2 weeks into recovery. I am seeing positive results but the following months will tell.”

“I booked my consultation just thinking I would get information not thinking I could ever actually be able to do it. Casi was so sweet kind and helpful. Made me feel okay that I wanted this done without judgement. I literally booked that day and surgery within that week. Their customer service/check in’s are amazing. They really care and readily available/call backs/emails etc. Now to my results omg I never thought I could have a flat tummy and I do. My Dr and the nursing staff were just as amazing with check in’s/questions as well. I highly recommend Sono Bello to anybody who is wanting to improve that stubborn area you need a little help with.”

“I saw an ad for Sono Bella on television and called them. I called and talked to them and set up a appointment. I was totally impressed with the consultation appointment as was my fiancee. He was totally supportive of my decision and has been with me every step of the way. I was never made to feel ashamed or embarrassed about the way I had let my body get so out of shape. Even taking the before pictures ! We set up the surgery appointment and talked to the doctor. I was very impressed with him.Very through with what he would do and how he would do it.
Surgery day came and everything went as I was told it would. No complications. We stayed at a hotel that night and the next. I was totally shocked with the calls I received to see how I was doing!! Even calls from dr. giving me his home number if I had any problems. So far my recovery has been by the book. My appointments are great.I am to have my month check-up in a couple of days and I am soooo impressed with the way I feel and look....I have lost over 70 lbs. And went from size 20 women's to a misses 12.
Also I have enjoyed the text's telling me how I should be feeling and they hit it on the nose every time!!!
I am anxiously waiting to see the end results . I cannot say enough GOOD things and Sono Bello

“I still have a lot of what I hope is swelling which I didn't anticipate. The description of the recovery and results was no where near accurate. It sounded like with the laser assistance that in a week or 10 days I'd be 90% done with recovery. Although I didn't use any pain medications this has been pretty painful and has been a very negative affect on my body. Very difficult to do much of anything for 18 days with all the pressure, swelling, discomfort/pain and numbness in the areas treated. Seems like a lot of specifics of the recovery were left out to make the sale. I Hope the end results are positive.”

I made the decision for ME and ONLY me to not only get a jump start on a new figure, but more importantly to regain the confidence I had lost. I was so very excited that Sono Bello also offered skin removal!!! No matter how much weight I have lost in the past I could never get rid of the loose "pouch" from carrying 5 children. I have nothing but kudos for the entire team. From my initial consult with the wonderful and accommodating Casi, to the genius expertise of Dr. Volk who performed my procedure. I truly never thought my abdomen would look this good. I would absolutely recommend Sono Bello to my all of my friends and family. Thank you to the entire staff, I am forever grateful.”

“I am still only 3 weeks post op for my second procedure, so time will tell with my total results. However, as of now I am extremely please with my experience! I had a Tri-Sculpt EX, upper and lower abs, inner thighs, hips and knees done. I am on a journey to lose 150 pounds and had lost 75 pounds when I had my procedures. It was just the boost that I needed to keep going on my journey of whole life health! Post procedures, I am down 85 pounds and still have quite a bit of swelling in my legs. I now have an hour glass shape and am able to fit into clothes that I haven't been able to wear for over 15 years! Plus, it seems to have kicked off my metabolism which makes it easier to keep working towards my overall weight loss goals.
The staff is super helpful and friendly. I loved how they customized the procedures to my overall needs! The weekly emails, calls and tips helped me to navigate all of the symptoms that popped up post procedure, which put me at ease. I would HIGHLY recommend this team for your contouring needs! I would definitely go back, after I lose the rest of my weight, if needed!
The only thing that wasn't ideal was the sales process, but I HATE to be sold. I came in having done my homework (and having compared other options), so I knew what I wanted and how much I was willing to invest in this process. Because I have high BMI the price was way higher than what was advertised online. Also, they said my weight was higher and my height was shorter than when I had gone to my MD earlier in the week. So, I felt that wasn't accurate and was pushing me into a higher BMI category. However, when I said I would probably wait since I have been losing 10 pounds per month, they told me I would miss out on the sale so it would end up being more. In the end, we were able to work out a price that got me to my target investment range (1/2 of what the price started at) and I was able to get scheduled for a procedure the following week. I would have rated this experience a 5 if the sales process didn't feel so ""used car sales"" like.
Thank you for helping make a HUGE difference in my life, Sono Bello!”

“Had the EX procedure done to remove fat and excess skin. I can see my stomach muscles again, still taking time for the incision to heal but all is looking good so far. Everyone one is different, but didn't have unreasonable amount of pain during or after. Staff is nice, especially Julie who set me up, and the doctor was precise as how much he could do per each procedure, and wasn't going to do a half job on one, so all could get done at one time. ”

“I had the TriSculpt E/X procedure. It has been about 2 1/2 weeks since my procedure and I am about 75% healed in my recovery process. The surgeon did an amazing job, I will say! Once I am 100% healed, I know that I will love my new look even more. To be completely honest, the recovery process is painful! However, if I would have been able to tolerate the pain meds, I probably wouldn't have experienced so much pain and discomfort, but I was unable to take the pain meds that the surgeon prescribed, so the surgeon had to put me on a less potent pain med and that pain med really only took the edge off. So with that being said, I do not want to discourage anyone from getting this procedure done, because it definitely has amazing results, but I just want to be up front and honest with the recovery process. Just keep in mind, if you can tolerate the pain meds, then you will most likely have a better, more tolerable recovery, than I did. Thank you Sono Bello for the amazing results that I couldn't achieve on my own :-) ”

“Had the EX procedure done to remove fat and excess skin. I can see my stomach muscles again, still taking time for the incision to heal but all is looking good so far. Everyone one is different, but didn't have unreasonable amount of pain during or after. Staff is nice, especially Julie who set me up, and the doctor was precise as how much he could do per each procedure, and wasn't going to do a half job on one, so all could get done at one time.”

“I had the TriSculpt E/X procedure. It has been about 2 1/2 weeks since my procedure and I am about 75% healed in my recovery process. The surgeon did an amazing job, I will say! Once I am 100% healed, I know that I will love my new look even more. To be completely honest, the recovery process is painful! However, if I would have been able to tolerate the pain meds, I probably wouldn't have experienced so much pain and discomfort, but I was unable to take the pain meds that the surgeon prescribed, so the surgeon had to put me on a less potent pain med and that pain med really only took the edge off. So with that being said, I do not want to discourage anyone from getting this procedure done, because it definitely has amazing results, but I just want to be up front and honest with the recovery process. Just keep in mind, if you can tolerate the pain meds, then you will most likely have a better, more tolerable recovery, than I did. Thank you Sono Bello for the amazing results that I couldn't achieve on my own :-)”

“I am still only 3 weeks post op for my second procedure, so time will tell with my total results. However, as of now I am extremely please with my experience! I had a Tri-Sculpt EX, upper and lower abs, inner thighs, hips and knees done. I am on a journey to lose 150 pounds and had lost 75 pounds when I had my procedures. It was just the boost that I needed to keep going on my journey of whole life health! Post procedures, I am down 85 pounds and still have quite a bit of swelling in my legs. I now have an hour glass shape and am able to fit into clothes that I haven't been able to wear for over 15 years! Plus, it seems to have kicked off my metabolism which makes it easier to keep working towards my overall weight loss goals.

The staff is super helpful and friendly. I loved how they customized the procedures to my overall needs! The weekly emails, calls and tips helped me to navigate all of the symptoms that popped up post procedure, which put me at ease. I would HIGHLY recommend this team for your contouring needs! I would definitely go back, after I lose the rest of my weight, if needed!

The only thing that wasn't ideal was the sales process, but I HATE to be sold. I came in having done my homework (and having compared other options), so I knew what I wanted and how much I was willing to invest in this process. Because I have high BMI the price was way higher than what was advertised online. Also, they said my weight was higher and my height was shorter than when I had gone to my MD earlier in the week. So, I felt that wasn't accurate and was pushing me into a higher BMI category. However, when I said I would probably wait since I have been losing 10 pounds per month, they told me I would miss out on the sale so it would end up being more. In the end, we were able to work out a price that got me to my target investment range (1/2 of what the price started at) and I was able to get scheduled for a procedure the following week. I would have rated this experience a 5 if the sales process didn't feel so "used car sales" like.

Thank you for helping make a HUGE difference in my life, Sono Bello!”

“I can only speak on the facility, customer service and pricing aspect on this business.

I had a 12:00 pm scheduled. This business is in a big building with multiple businesses inside so I would give yourself extra time to park and find the suite. I entered the office at about 12:05 pm and waited until 12:25 pm to be seen. Normally, this wouldn't be a big deal except I was on my lunch. The front staff are friendly and the office is very clean. The office looks small in the front but once you enter the back, there's a lot of different offices.

The lady who did my initial consultation was very bubbly and very friendly. I enjoyed hearing about the one day fat removal procedure, how it works, the results etc. She was really personable, friendly, and took time to hear what I've tried to get to where I am now. I really appreciated how genuine she was.

The part that surprised me was the pricing. On the website, they advertise 1395/area. If you are looking to get your whole abdomen done, you are probably looking at your upper (one area), lower (second area), and waist (third area) performed. I'm giving this business a 3 star because I don't like the misinformation - the 1395 is based on your BMI (lowest range). The BMI (which is just your height and weight) determines the price range of an area - from 1395 - 2900+. I feel this information should be accessed prior to the appointment. I initially thought I was looking around a 3k price range but walked out with a quote for 10k+. There's a 2k surgeon fee on top of the areas you'd like treated.”

“I went in for a consult merely to get an idea of what a cost would be like to rid myself of the problem areas. From the first appointment, I was greeted by a friendly staff and consultant, Casi. She was patient with me and answered all of my very skeptical questions. I am 40 years old and suffered with hashimotos thyroid disease for many years and struggled with my weight since I was a young adult. I decided to move forward with the procedure. I had Lipo with sculpting. I met the surgeon who was also extremely informative and I also spent time researching his clinical history because well... it's important. My surgery date came and again the staff was amazing, kept me informed and made sure all things were done per protocol. My surgery was not painful. I felt very well taken of through the procedure. The surgeon called me a few hours later to be sure all was ok and asked if there were any questions. I got another call a couple of days later again with alot of time for questions which was needed. My 1 week follow up was also great and again the staff was spectacular! I now have a few months for total recovery and quite honestly I was absolutely taken away with the results I got from this experience this far. I would do this again and recommend them to family and friends looking for a good experience start to finish!”

“My experience with Sono bello has been great. As a treat to myself, I decided to have the lipo procedure done and finally get rid of my love handles. For as long as I can remember I’ve always had to cover up my midsection using girdles, waist trainers, body shapers, waist-high pants and even plastic wrap! Everytime I got dressed my eyes automatically laser-focused on my waist and midsection area and I was ALWAYS discouraged…I thought about Sono bello back in 2012 but found a company that offered zerona treatments for cheaper so I went with that. BAD IDEA. Not only was it a WASTE of money but it was a waste of time, gas (12 treatments over the course of 3 months!), and hope. I saw no difference and was back discouraged and wrapping my midsection with plastic…After more years and more discouraging “quick fixes” I finally did it and went to Sono bello. Long story short, I don’t have to worry about plastic wrap or girdles again! After getting my waist and bra rolls done, at not even a week post-op, I finally had a waist! I did have one complaint, though: how am I supposed to go from years of no waist (shape) to having one darn near overnight?? I’m glad I made the decision to get this procedure, and the staff is genuine at this location. My nurse was the best. She made me very comfortable during the procedure. I can’t wait to see the final results. I’ve been eating healthier and will continue to make the best of my results. Finally!!”

Rebecca was the first person I met with and she is very knowledgeable and personable! Answered all my questions and concerns. Very warm, welcoming- she gave you honest answers and was efficient with my time.The surgical team Dr. Strand, Jill and Debbie were equally enjoyable to work with. I felt like they took the time to listen to my worries/ issues and were very helpful in their responses. Everyone was notably positive friendly and upbeat throughout all encounters! One encounter worth noting: I was running late to a post op appointment- the time was already late on a work day, I was unsure if they would be able to see me and was willing to reschedule- receptionist transferred me to nurse Debbie to see if I could still be seen. Knowing what it's like to a never ending workday as a nurse, I was so impressed with her comments- she listened to my explanation and stated it was no problem, she was more concerned that I might have to wait a bit, and she just wanted me to travel safely and she would see me when I got there! I immediately was impressed with her attitude and care for her patients! :) p.s Dr. Strand is a genuine caring surgeon and a pretty funny guy! Refreshing after working with many surgeons!”

The before, during and after care was excellent! I truly appreciated the coaching on the front end of the procedure and the aftercare follow-up was wonderful. Each week I received an email that stated what I should be experiencing at that stage of the recovery process. It was extremely accurate! My boyfriend and my daughters were not exactly supportive of my decision at first. After I received the procedure, my boyfriend said, "I am glad that you made an investment in your future health! You look HOT! "Well, "HOT" wasn't what I was aiming for. I just wanted to be able to bend over with ease. My daughters both said, "Mom, you look awesome. I can't believe how much energy you have!" Thank you Dr. Hatfield and her Care Team. They did a great job and I am telling anyone that inquires! Why would you keep a secret about feeling the best I have felt in over 5 year?”

“Sonobello has far exceeded my expectations
From the moment I explored the idea of body sculpting, Sonobello has far exceeded my expectations in more than one area. I started with Sonobellos web-site, which was easy to maneuver and answered all my preliminary questions. When i made the decision to get started within one week I was in their office setting up my exciting next chapter of my life with the figure I've always wanted, but been unable to achieve on my own. The moment i walked through the door of Sonobello, I was greeted by friendly, outgoing, accommodating staff that had my best interest at heart. This has been my experience EVERY visit. I not only would give Sonobello a Five star rating, I would go as far as my reputation on endorsing Sonobello to all that are thinking of changing their life for the positive.”

“Dr. Hatfield was awesome!!!
I have tried exercising to get rid of my tire around my waistline and would lose weight but could not get my waistline fat to go away. I made an appointment at Sonobello in Minneapolis and scheduled the liposuction procedure immediately. After the procedure, I went home with very little discomfort and a couple of days later I was amazed at how I felt. The results have been unbelievable! I am so happy I did this procedure. In 2 weeks after the procedure, I lost 3 inches under the breasts, 4 inches from my waistline and 2 across my hips! I lost a total of 5 pounds as well. The body I had when I was in my 20's is coming back - I love the results. If this is the results I have in 2 weeks - can't wait to see how I look in 3 months.. I would recommend to anyone thinking about feeling good again about their body to do this procedure. Dr. Hatfield was awesome!!! Thank you Sonobello for making me look and feel great again...”

The experience was quick and efficient. I would do it over and over again. From the moment I walked in I knew it was exactly what I wanted. The consultation answered all my questions. There is a hidden fee of at least $1000 for those who are wondering. The actual surgery was pain free. The only discomfort is the initial tumescent infiltration. I'm so happy I ended up doing this procedure. The results are amazing.”

“It's a great, quick procedure
It's a great, quick procedure that makes you feel so much more confident about your body! The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because I got a bit of 'attitude' from the nurse trying to schedule my post-op appointment. Later, during the procedure, she was nice and friendly.”

“The cost of the procedure is so worth it.
The cost of the procedure is so worth it. I have my waist line back with no more tummy rolls. My back is flat and lean! The pain is very manageable. I had 9 areas done on my upper body in one session. I only took 2 pain pills the first day and then just tylenol after that. I love how I look already and it has been just over 2 weeks. I am still swollen so I can only imagine how muchet smaller I will be in a few months!”

I had a lousy tummy tuck about 30 years ago and was really disappointed in how I looked. I thought there was not hope for me until I heard about Sono Bello. You should see me now!!

“This is the best thing I have ever done for myself.
This is the best thing I have ever done for myself. Period. I wish I would have done it 10 years ago but I needed to try everything else first. I wanted to do it on my own. I've beaten myself up in the gym, competed in grueling athletic endeavors, maintained 1200 calorie diets and still the banana roll would not budge. My 17 year old daughter has it, my mom (at 110 lbs) had it, and I was at my whits ends to find jeans to fit in the butt AND in the waist. I guess you just have to be in the right place in your mind to finally say, I've tried everything else, this isn't a fix all for problems in your life but when everything else is in line and your outsides don't match your inside thoughts, then its time to take the leap. I'm today 2 weeks out from thigh and knee sculpting and I have seen such positive results already that I cry. The Dr was truly a sculptor and the 4 lbs of targeted fat that she removed moved me from frumpy to looking athletic and fit, just the look I was after. I never wanted to be skinny. Just better proportioned. More balanced. Now that balance is shows both on my inside AND outside.”

“I am so happy I decided to go ahead and get this procedure done!! It's been a long 20+ years that I've wanted to have something done with my tummy but didn't want to take 6 weeks off work and be placed under sedation for abdominoplasty. I did a lot of research and found sonobello to be exceptional! Everyone is so kind and Dr. Hatfield is amazing, we even had a nice conversation during the procedure, which relaxed me more. She made sure I was comfortable and went over all the post op instructions. The post-op days weren't bad at all, for me, taking the tape off was the worst.. really! I followed instructions, tried to walked every 10 minutes and really felt I had a great recovery of only 3 days, back to work on the 4th day. 10 days later, with 8 inches gone (and there still is swelling), I am so looking forward to getting in the "dreaded" swimsuit this summer and rockin it!!

“Overall my experience was very good. I was awake and relaxed during the initial procedure and the staff was very thorough in what to expect. Never was the pain unbearable and felt little during the actual procedure. I was amazed to be able to see the actual amount removed. I have a very high tolerance for pain though so to me it was only moderate considered the results I'm already seeing. My result was 3lbs removed and since I have goals to reach, this was a great way to get there. I did experience a couple days of difficulty in wanting to move much but kept to a light 10 minute walk as suggested to keep blood flow and heal faster. The staff has been great and Julie always made my visits enjoyable in conversation. Dr. Volk did an amazing job!!”

As the first person of contact, she embodies the caring service you will receive. Casi and Coleen provided my consultations and were honest, knowledgeable, and not intimidating. They shared with me the best options for treatment, while at the same time never applying pressure. I appreciated that most of all!
Then there is Dr. Hatfield, she was fantastic! She wanted to make sure I was completely comfortable with the procedures I was having and answered every question thoroughly. She is extremely intelligent, knowledgeable, and an expert in her profession. Dr. Hatfield called to check on me following both of my procedures. After the second one, I was not available and she called back later in the evening. She wanted to personally speak with me and make sure I was okay. This is the sign of a doctor who cares and has her patient’s well-being first! That was impressive! Lindsey, Megan, and Josie were my nurses and they were great! Each one of them was caring, friendly and supportive! I can’t say enough about the staff there. It has been a wonderful experience!

I’ve been wanting a more defined stomach and after trying many things I decided Sono Bello might be my answer. I obtained quotes from other places and although Sono Bello was about $1000 more than my other quotes, I felt more comfortable going with someone who performs lipo on a regular basis.
I had a consultation on 9/25/2015 and it was decided I needed three areas: upper abs, lower abs, and waist. I signed up for the Sono Bello TriSculpt laser assisted liposuction process. The cost of the surgery is based on your BMI. For me, each area was $1295, then there is a surgical fee of $1995. I qualified for the Sept special so received $250 off and if you pay up front or use their financing you can get $1000 off. My cost for the surgery was $4742.64. Surgery was scheduled for the next day, 9/26/2015 with Dr. Volk. I was given prescriptions to pick up the following medications and was instructed to bring them to my surgery appointment:
- Alparazolam, taken for anxiety
- Cephalexin, antibiotic
- Ondansetron, taken for nausea
- Oxycodone, pain relief
I was also supplied with Arnicare skin care cream to apply to the skin after surgery (not the incision points). They also gave me Boiron Arnicare homeopathic medicine to take three times a day for a couple of weeks.
Surgery was scheduled for 10 and I was required to be there at 9. They gave me pregnancy test, gave me the drugs listed above, along with a shot of Demerol. Then the doctor came in to “mark me up.” When I disrobed, I broke out into hives on my chest– the dr was concerned it might have been an allergic reaction. No – I explained when I’m nervous my chest breaks out. Ha.
I had a wait a bit for the surgery to get started as they wanted the drugs to kick in. I believe the surgery started around 10:20am. They asked what type of music I wanted to listen to, gave me some eye goggles, then the doctor proceeded with making the incisions for the pain medications.
This experience was not bad, I really didn’t feel much. Through the 1.5 hrs of surgery, I only felt pain 1-2 times when he was working near my hip bone. Some people say they fall asleep during surgery or they feel that they are “high” or “drunk.” I didn’t feel or experience any of this. I may have been a little “calm” but that was really it. I definitely knew what was going on at all times.
After surgery, the nurse has the wonderful job of trying to squeeze you into a compression garment and bandaging you up. This is not fun and a little embarassing but Jess the nurse tried to make light of things. A very tight binder was also put on. Special instructions are given to your pick up driver, who must also sign you out (at one point I thought about hiding this surgery from everyone and checking into a hotel – I don’t think a taxi driver would have signed me out…)
Jess the nurse put me into a wheelchair and wheeled me out to our vehicle. The two hour trip home was a little uncomfortable, just hard to sit up straight. As soon as I got home, I immediately went to bed. Later that night I asked my husband to help me change the bandages. This was NOT fun. Taking off the compression garment was not an easy task, it is SO tight. And my bandages were full of blood. I immediately got light headed. I usually have a stomach of steel and am not nauseous at the sight of blood, but this was a really weird feeling. Thank goodness my husband helped me – he got me a bag of ice to put on my head while he tried to figure out how to change my bandages. Sono Bello suggested using maxi pads but of course my husband had a hard time figuring out how to use / position them and he was kinda freaked out by it but we got it done then had to tried to squeeze myself back into the compression garment.
The next day I was 100% bed bound. I just couldn’t move, my stomach muscles hurt so bad. We changed out the bandages again and I got sick to my stomach, and vomited. The only times I were up was to use the bathroom. And that was a challenge too as you just don’t think you have to use muscles to urinate, but you do. I hurt SOOOO bad. I was completely black and blue, especially in my pelvic region – even my vagina was swollen and black.
On Monday, I took a sick day and stayed the whole day in bed. Still a lot of pain and my bandages had quite a bit of drainage. On Tuesday, I still couldn’t image going into to work so stayed home and stayed the whole day in bed. I worked the rest of the week and it was HORRIBLE. My drive is about 30 minutes and the worst part is climbing in and out of a vehicle and sitting. Fortunately I’m on my feet most of the day because sitting just doesn’t work. The compression garment is extremely uncomfortable and the hooks and zippers are digging into my sides.
I haven’t told anyone at work about my surgery but everyone is noticing I’m not right. It hurts to stand up straight, it feels like my skin is ripping and tight. My walk is definitely slower and I can’t bend down to pick up anything. It’s pretty difficult to hide these types of things.
A week after the surgery I was still very, very black, blue, green and yellow with bruises. Every part of my back, sides, and stomach hurt. My pelvic area also was still very sore. During my one week follow up, the nurse seemed a little concerned with my incision points as she didn’t think they were healing very well. Because of that she brought in Dr Volk to review. Typically, you don’t get to see the Dr. after surgery, it’s just the nurses but since she had a concern he took a look. Dr Volk said my healing is a little slower than normal but felt I was still on the right track. Apparently I’m in the 9% of patients who have extreme pain after surgery and slow healing. Figures.
At my appointment they provided me bioCorneum topical scar treatment. I’ve already seen an improvement and I’ve only used it 2 days.
It has now been two weeks since the surgery and what ride it has been. I’m still extremely uncomfortable, especially when sitting up. My pelvic region is very swollen which is preventing me from bending. My second stage of compression garment came in and it has been a HUGE relief. Although it is extremely uncomfortable getting it on, when it is on it doesn’t feel bad. There are no hooks or zippers like the first one. The garment was about $80, it is Isavela. My model number I BS04-MD-BL.
If you are considering lipo, here are some tips or things you might want to get:
- Maxi pads and bandage tape for covering the wounds
- Step stool for climbing into bed
- Puke bucket / pail handy in bed and for when changing garments
- Arnicare skin cream. They provided me one tube, which I used up pretty fast. I purchased another tube at Walmart for $7.99
- Plenty of water at your bed stand
- Watch your diet – stay away from Salt.
Attached are pictures on the day of the surgery and two weeks later. You can tell from my pictures how tight the first compression garment was. I’ve still got a long ways to go but I’m happy my stomach is much flatter than it was. Do I think it was worth it? I don’t know yet. I’ve been so miserable, I had no idea I was going to be in this much pain. I’ll update you as my journey to getting athletic abs continues!”

“Deciding to have cosmetic surgery was not easy for me but I am very happy I did it. It was the inspiration I needed to continue on my health care goals. I had my procedure 6-months ago and I decided to not post a comment until then because other folks want to hear feed back later vs. in the first three months. (Sorry Julie, it was that important to me)
I had my consultation with Casi, it was a straight forward conversation about my goals and candid feedback on realistic expectations. There was NO sales pitch. This procedure was my choice what I did and how much I did was up to me. Here is what we can/cannot do was the talk I had with Casi. I went in wanting my arms done as that was my area that bothered me most. I ended up doing abdominal, arms and back. I am thrilled with my results it met the expectations as outlined. I have more work to do but Sono Bello helped me get closer and motivate me. I still have that I love my arms feeling everyday.
I read reviews before I went in and they can scare you to death. My advice is, know yourself. If you have a low pain tolerance, your feelings about the procedure will reflect that. I have a very high pain tolerance. I knew I would be uncomfortable but knew I had a high tolerance for pain which means for me this was not a terribly painful procedure for me. I am sure Brooke and Dr. Volk could say I cared more about the music but there are “zinger” moments during the procedure in those sensitive areas but again expected as they tell you where it will hurt the most. Without a doubt I followed the discharge instructions to a tee. Including stopping the prescription meds as soon as possible (3 days) and moved to over the counter meds (Tylenol) during the day and 1/2 of a prescription med to sleep. Wear the garments for the full three months, buy spares if you can - best thing for results! For the post op time walk and follow the nutritional advise sent to you. Have a plan, get rid of the junk and east clean! The weekly notes sent are great, I am a customer service and a nudge to walk and keep up the good habits.
Post op calls with Lisa kept me calm when I wasn’t and she kept me calm with good advice and showing me the before pictures to motivate me. Julie, I have driven you crazy with re-schedules due to distance. That said, I have fulfilled my promise of sharing my experience that I did want to do at 6-months because the readers really want to hear from us later.
Would I do it again? Yes. Would I have a better Plan A, B and C when the real world gets in the way of your personal goals? Yes! The reality is, I wore short sleeves this summer and wore a bathing suit in public. I am down three sizes and negative self-talk is leaving my life. All of this is a combination of the procedure and personal goals.
Thank you Sono Bello for the bump I needed for my goals.”

“Was treated very well here. 1st time having anything like this done before. Had abs, waist and back bra rolls done. Had almost no pain during procedure and very minimal post procedure. Only a few weeks out and liking what I see so far. Don't expect to pay the $1295 per area. Prices are determined by BMI. So it was pricey, but permanent.”

They addressed my concerns; my first procedure on my hips, waist, abdomen and bra roll was so painless--I worried at first that it wasn't going to work! Now, two weeks later, I am so AMAZED at how good I feel and look. If you are considering having this done, I highly recommend this staff.”

“I went there to investigate laser lipo expecting it to be way too expensive and to my surprise they quoted a price about 10% less than I hoped for.I found the staff to be friendly, inviting, and totally professional. The procedure was less uncomfortable than I anticipated-I fell asleep at one point. Pain afterwards was very minimal and ongoing my ribs ache (brings back football memories). I feel and look bloated but I'm down twelve pounds and my pants are loose. I expect that after the bloating goes away (I'm at day twelve) 'll be down around fifteen pounds and three to four inches at my waist. ”

I feel so much better and have more motivation to get up and move!! Dr Volk and his staff were so great! Made me feel so comfortable at each appt.

“It didn’t matter how much exercise and dieting I did, my stomach and love handles were not going away. Summer came and the thought of wearing a t-shirt and shorts was out of the question. I was much more comfortable in a baggy sweater and stretch pants. I had heard about Sono Bello from a friend, so I made an appointment for a consultation at the Edina, MN location. After my consultation with Casi, I knew I was going to go through with the procedure. Casi was so kind and reassuring. This is exactly what I needed. Dr Hatfield performed the procedure and I would highly recommend her. The procedure itself was a little nerve racking, but they give you good meds and atmosphere was very relaxing. Today is 2 weeks in and I feel and look great. I can’t believe the results. My stomach is flat, even when I am sitting down. I am able to wear clothes I haven’t worn in a couple years.

“To all of the wonderful ladies at Sono Bello, Edina, I wanted to thank you for making me feel so comfortable and relaxed before, during and after my procedure. From the initial visit, I knew I was in good hands. My consultant made extra effort to work around my schedule. She walked me through the procedure, explaining everything, and extended as much time and care as I needed to answer all of my questions. That alone made for an easy decision to proceed. The surgeon and his team were friendly, professional, and made good conversation with me during the procedure as I didnt need to be put to sleep, only sedated. The one week follow up came quickly. Everything was moving along well, so it was just nice to catch up and say hi to everyone at the office. Ive had one visit since, and everything is moving along great.

“I have (or should I say had) a problem with my thighs. Despite 2 years of working out regularly and eating right as well as multiple attempts at non-surgical laser options I finally decided nothing else was going to work. So I read many reviews and came across Sono Bello. I was very apprehensive but after meeting with Casi for a consultation I couldn't book my surgery fast enough. The morning of the procedure I was nervous. Not a fan of needles or pain. Honestly Dr. Volk placed my IV and I didn't even feel it. The nurse game me a quick shot in my thigh which I barely felt and when they infused the lidocaine to help numb things up I was afraid I would feel that, but I barely felt anything the entire time. I thought I would want to be distracted but the time went by so quickly and we were listening to music and it was a very positive and relaxing experience. I am only a little over a week out but feel great. I didn't require any pain meds besides some tylenol the first day. I was a little sore if I walked fast the first 3 days but went to work normally after that. I am a little over a week out and there is still swelling there but it's amazing to walk and not have my thighs touch! It really was a great experience and everyone was so nice and friendly. I'm very happy to have found them.”

“I know when I went searching for reviews before going in, all I wanted to know was "Did you see results? And how much of a result did you see?" Because when you go in, they will tell you the truth. Results do in fact vary per the individual. But I can tell you MY experience.
I am 4 wks post op 1st procedure and 3 wks post op on the 2nd. I am still swollen and yet I am AMAZED. I'd be happy with where I'm at now even if I wasn't still swollen. So, you can imagine how ecstatic I'll be in another month.
I also read a lot of glowing reviews about the staff when doing my own research for Sono Bello. When you walk in the Edina location, the first thing you see is a couple of gorgeous women behind the front desk. Little intimidating. Until you meet Julie. She could not have been sweeter, more welcoming, or LESS intimidating.
All the nursing staff was awesome to say the least. The RN on staff, Lisa, is simply the bomb. Answered any and all my goofy questions at the end of her very long days.

“In the past few years as I aged into my 50s, I found that despite exercising regularly and being careful with my diet, that I developed excess belly fat and “love handles”. I attempted to get rid of this excess fat by increasing my workouts and further restricting my diet. That worked, but I found it completely unsustainable; I was spending much of my free time exercising, and I always felt like I was starving. As soon as I returned to a normal workout regimen (one hour, five times per week) and a normal diet, the fat would slowly build back on.
This prompted me to look into laser lipo as a way to get rid of the nuisance fat. I wasn’t searching for a “magic bullet” for weight loss, but rather a way to clean up bulky areas that I was not able to maintain through reasonable effort on my own. I also wanted to be able to wear better fitting clothes without appearing like a sausage that was pinched in the middle.
After some research I decided to go in to Sono Bello for a consultation. I found the office very clean and modern, and the staff friendly and professional. During the consultation, I was informed on what they could and could not do as well as the risks and costs involved, so that I was able to make an informed decision as to whether to proceed.
i decided to have my chest, abdomen, and sides done. Dr. Flagg was my surgeon; he had a very easy manner and it was obvious that he knew exactly was he was doing. As part of his exam he pointed out what he saw as my problem areas and how he was going to proceed, and he set realistic expectation for my results. As an aside, I’d like to point out that, at no time did anyone on the staff lead me into having unrealistic expectations and that this was cure-all.
The surgery for me was uneventful. I had my procedure done on a Saturday; my surgical sites stopped draining by Monday morning, and I returned to work on Tuesday. There was an expected level of bruising that peaked about 4 days after the procedure, and some tenderness that lasted for a few days, but that was manageable with Tylenol. At first it was tough to see the results due to puffiness, but within a couple weeks I was noticeably thinner around my waist and chest.
Over the months my treated areas healed nicely, and there was no scarring at the entry points., I was pleased to see the bulkiness was removed from my waist and chest and that things had tightened and flattened.
At my 6 month checkup, I decided to have an additional area, the “bra roll” on my back done. I am still healing from that, but it is healing well. Again, I had very little post-op pain and bruising and drained from the surgical sites for only one day. I had this surgery on Friday was able to return to work on Monday.
When I went in for this additional procedure, I was pleased to see that Dr. Flagg had changed some of his operating room protocols, because that indicated to me that the medical staff is keeping up on the latest procedures in order to improve outcomes. I also found out that Dr. Flagg had moved (back) to Chicago, but that he was flying to Minneapolis regularly to ensure that his existing active patients continued to receive his care. It was good to see such professional dedication to his patients.
I would like to point out that no invasive medical intervention is without risk, and you should know how your body reacts to injury before deciding to take on a surgical solution. if you are in poor or questionable health, react poorly to injury, have a low pain threshold, or expect that this is a quick weight loss solution, this may not be for you; it,isn’t for everyone. But I am in good general health, I exercise regularly, and my body recovers well when injured, so I healed quickly and am extremely pleased with my results. This is in no small part due to the professionalism and expertise of the staff at Sono Bello.”

“It took me almost a year to decide have liposuction on my waist, upper, and lower abdomen. After having my consultation and meeting my team, I was convinced this was the right option for me. The entire staff made me feel very comfortable and provided me with thorough information to not only make the best decision, but also to have realistic expectations for the procedure and results. The team on the day of my procedure, Dr Saxon (surgeon), Ben (PA), and Kimmy (nurse) made every effort to make sure I was completely comfortable and that I would have the best possible outcome. Dr Saxon took the extra time to ensure not only comfort, but also an excellent result. He even called me the night of my procedure and the next day to check in. While my results may not be typical, I will divulge that 4 days post procedure, I tried on a whole section of my closet that was designated to be donated because the clothes no longer fit. Not only did the zippers zip again, but the clothes looked great on my new figure. There are no words that can describe the joy and renewed self confidence I felt at that moment. This was absolutely a worthwhile investment in myself that I would not hesitate to do again”

I really feel like he was aggressive in removal on the areas that I told him bothered me most. I would like to see the Dr. for every follow up, but typically one only sees the nurse unless you are having issues that need to be addressed by the Dr. That being said I felt like if I had specific needs I needed to address with him he did share his no. and one could get ahold of him at any time.”

I only had my arms done, this time... but I could see going back for something else in future. The Sono Bello staff was wonderful from start to finish and Dr Volk did a fantastic job. I would highly recommend this team of people.”

“Dr. Flagg was sooooooooo kind and is truly a artist at what he does. The staff was all so kind and helpful with all my questions. Even the one's over the phone after my conturning. I felt so at home the first time I walked into the office for my evaluation. After meeting and feeling so comfortable by everyone I said "can we do this tomorrow"? At 65 years old I did this for me and doing just fine. A little sour but ever day better. Do it for yourself it truly is the gift you will love every day. AAJ”

“It's just been 3 weeks since my surgery, and I'm incredibly happy with my results. I'm still healing but I'm 100 percent sure that my final results will be phenomenal! I store all of my fat in my upper body and I've always called myself "a pumpkin with legs". Well, I won't be calling myself that anymore! I told Dr. FLagg that I wanted to be able to wear my shirts tucked in again, and he assured me that I would. And guess what...I am! I can't wait for swimsuit season, as I haven't put a swimsuit on in years. I feel like Sono Bello and Dr. Flagg have given me a new life! The staff at Sono Bello were professional and caring and they made sure that all of my needs were met. Thanks Sono Bello, with the help you've given me, I now have the encouragement I needed to be a more fit and healthier person!”

“This is my first review I have ever written, but these folks are so phenomenal I had to share my experience. I had my procedure done December 26th, 2014 which included; my waist, and upper and lower abdomen. I was skeptical, and afraid prior to my consultation. I went to my consultation and felt extremely comfortable, same day I met my nurse Jen and Dr. Flagg. Everyone was extremely down to earth and fun to be around, I felt like I had known them forever. I can’t say enough about how warm, friendly, funny and HONEST, everyone is at Sono Bello. I would recommend anyone to Sono Bello. My results were 100 times better than I ever expected, and I did not miss any work due to my procedure. Everything they told me was going to happen, happened, NO “BS” from anyone at Sono Bello. Dr. Flagg flew in that morning (the day after Christmas) to do my procedure, I was his only patient for the day, and just like he said he would, he called me the next day to check and see how I was doing. I will also be getting another procedure done in a few weeks on my bra roll. One happy customer here…..”

“am 44 years old, and have struggled with the dreaded muffin top my entire life. I had lost over 40 pounds, and have kept it off, but I could not get rid of the muffin top. Crunches, ab exercises, low carb diet, trainers, you name it. I've tried it. Nothing worked.
After years of literally crying when I put my jeans on, my boyfriend encouraged me to contact Sono Bello.... so we did.
Our first consultation was with Coleen. She was wonderful. Very honest, direct, and up front. I told her what I was looking for and she agreed that this would work for me.
We made the appointments for the pre-op and surgery.... phase 2 of absolute wonderfulness at Sono Bello.
From Julie greeting us when we arrived, to Jess and Dr. Volk during the pre-op, this place is first-class, up front, no holds barred. Dr. Volk and Jess answered all questions. Were very open with what I will be dealing with, Spoke to both my boyfriend and I, and spent as much time with us as we needed.
The following week, was my surgery. Enter Jen.... man this girl could give training on how to be a nurse. Absolutely wonderful.
Dr. Volk and Jen were amazing during the procedure. I had my abs (upper/lower) and waist done. They kept me very comfortable. Talked during the procedure, keeping me informed on what they were doing.
Even though you can't see what they are doing, Jen kept me in the loop.
After the surgery, Dr. Volk called me that night to see how I was doing. I also heard from Jen during the weekend.
If you are thinking about doing this, I would highly recommend it. I am two weeks post surgery, and although my final body hasn't been "revealed yet", I'm loving what I am seeing and feeling.
Thank you Sono Bello.. I truly love my Sono Bello body!!”

“I am 48 yr, and went into Sono Bello with the HOPES that my BIG ponch belly could be just helped some..I knew that I did not want to go full blown abdominalplasty, way to invasive. Sono Bello claimed they could help with my belly fat. I had the surgery, lower and upper abs and waist...all I can say (after 3 months) is WOW...they have exceeded my expectations in all areas. Dr Volk, Nurse Jen and team were all amazing, and still are!! THANK you all for making this experience overall wonderful. I would recommend Sono Bello Edina..Thank you again...I am loving the transformation already so far!”

“I want to start by saying I never write reviews, but this experience justifies one. I started thinking about having some lipo/body contouring done a couple months ago. I met with several (6) different surgery centers. It's not something that you really ask around about, so it's definitely tough to make a decision. I just didn't feel impressed and any procedure is a big deal. I met with Sonobello last. I made my consult appointment and met with Jessica and Casi. These 2 women are phenomenal! I felt welcome and right at home in their office. Right off the bat I appreciated their honesty. I am a "go big, or go home" kind of person. They told me outright don't do your arms, they don't need it. This impressed me. They could have very well sold it to me, but didn't. I asked a ton of questions and never felt so at ease. I didn't feel judged or rushed as I had in other consults. I signed the paperwork and scheduled my first surgery for just 2 days later I felt so comfortable, it was hands down the best experience out of any facility I met with. I needed 2 procedures as I had every area with the exception of my calves, ankles, arms and chin done. I drove home feeling excited!!
Now, if you are reading my review you are going to do exactly what I did. You are going to Google until your head spins. I read every negative review I could find. I freaked out. I drove there the next am ready to cancel and tell them that I wanted my deposit back. I walked in the door and everybody working there knew my name. They didn't have me finish paying until I met with Dr. Volk (who is a rockstar!). I was taken back for my pre op appointment with Jen the nurse (also a rockstar). I told her about all the horrible reviews I found. I told her I was freaking out, I didn't want to do it. I was scared. Both Dr. Volk and Jen eased my mind within minutes. ALL of my questions were answered, my fears gone. I didn't feel rushed or pressured (as some reviews said I would). We talked about everything. What to expect, recovery, how to prepare. Once again I left there excited!
My first procedure was 2 weeks ago where Dr. Volk did my top half. They talked to me during the procedure, explained everything that was going on and even listened to the music I wanted. The procedure was a breeze! Honestly, I fell asleep during part of it. They explained everything to my fiancé afterwords for what to do at home. The nurse even drew him pictures so he knew where the incisions were. They sent me home with everything I needed! Dr. Volk called me that night to see how I was doing. This was a Saturday. I received follow up calls and emails all weekend, basically every day. I had to call the center as I had a question. Dr. Volk was not in that day. He called me back from his personal cell within a half an hour! I was back to work Tuesday. Sore, but nothing unmanageable.
A week later Dr. Volk completed the 2nd procedure. Basically my entire bottom half. Again, everybody there knew my name, and everything was gone through with what to expect with this round. During surgery the nurse, Dr. and myself talked about weddings, and getting engaged, everything, like we were long lost friends. Dr. Volk again called me to check on me that night.
It is 2 weeks after my 1st procedure and one week after my 2nd, and I had my post op check up today. I met with Casi to tell her how great she is, how great everybody there is! I looked at before and after pictures. I still have some swelling, but the results are absolutely amazing!!! Although I wanted to jump up and down and hug Dr. Volk I just thanked him so much and told him he was an absolute rockstar! All of the nurses were awesome, especially Jen.
I cannot say one negative thing about Sonobello in Edina. First class from the minute I walked in the door. I can't wait to see final results. If you are on the fence, go for it! I am so glad I did and so glad I decided on Sonobello.”

“I'm really pleased I did this procedure (stomach/hips/chin) at Sono Bello. I took Friday through Tuesday off from work for the initial recovery period to promote faster healing. It took 2 weeks to really see a difference. It has encouraged me to eat healthier for best overall results. Now at 4 weeks post op, I have lost 12 pounds so far. My pants fit so much better. I'm no longer trying to disguise rolls of fat or too embarrassed to wear tight fitting shirts. Dr. Volk did my procedures, he is simply the best! If money wasn't an issue, I would go back and have him do my arms and legs too, but guess I'll do it the old fashioned way. My advice is to do exactly what they tell you and when they tell you for the best road to recovery. Wear your compression garments faithfully. Don't wear tight waist bands or belts for at least a month. Invest in yourself and gain back your confidence. I'm so glad I did.”

“If you're ready to do this, call the clinic (not their 800-number). You'll get in faster. If you're really ready, be ready - do your research; know what you're getting into! My timeline was really quick - less time to worry! YAY! My expectations were very reasonable: "80% flatter tummy, a waist, loose skin, and lots of pain." I'm pretty tolerant to pain (this was MUCH LESS painful than getting my tubes tied or gall bladder out - and the recovery was a LOT quicker than either of those). The ONLY thing I didn't like about the clinic was each time I went in I had different people (initial consult/salesperson, pre-op appointment nurse, prep nurse, operating room nurse, 1-week post-op nurse - all nice, but all different people).”

The surgery was a breeze especially since my surgeon and I share the same taste in music. My surgery was on a Thursday afternoon and I was back to work on Monday with no issues. I took the week off from golfing but played the following week. My surgical team was excellent and followed up with personal call to ensure my recovery was going well.

“My experience with everyone at Sono Bello (Edina) has been FABULOUS!
I had to wait a couple weeks for my consultation, appointment, which was fine. I used that time to research every inch of the internet world about Laser assisted Lipo. I found that Sono Bello (Edina) has an outstanding reputation. I found NO reasons not to move ahead with the procedures of body sculpting. So, I continued to research and I became comfortable with the idea of having the sculpting completed.
The day arrived when I had my consultation, with Chandra, my first impression was, I was surprisingly comfortable with her. Chandra greeted me so kindly and explained every detail of the body sculpting. I was incredibly at ease. Then the monies conversation, I gasped at the total cost to have an overhaul procedure, completely redo ME. Once, I stepped back and listened to Chandra, walk me through the different options of the areas to be sculpted. I was pleasantly pleased. How affordable the procedures actually became to complete. Chandra stated, "We can schedule you in on Saturday." Mind you it was Thursday on the day we met. She said again, "well, what do you think?" Dr. Volk is wonderful.
I stared at her, with my eyes glazed over, similar to a deer in the headlights of a car, my whole insides were churning with excitement. I looked at her and said, LET'S DO IT!
I was so excited.
Dr. Volk and the whole team at the Edina office are so professional and unbelievably kind. Thank you guys!
I am now three weeks from my first procedure and a week from my second. Both procedures went smoothly and I am so pleased with the results already.... and actually the final results could be at least 6 months out. So, I am feeling pretty darn happy. Realistically, how could I not love everyone at Sono Bello .....
i go in for the procedure in the morning.... and a couple hours later, I am heading home with a waist 8 Inches smaller,
HECK YEAH, I am HAPPY.
Would I recommend Sono Bello.... I would without a doubt.... not even hesitate. I did my research... and my homework on the background of the actual procedure being done....
YES, I would jump again onto the procedure chair, with out a blink of an eye.
Thank you Everyone at Sono Bello (EDINA), you are the best team in town/ ANYWHERE.”

“When I decided to go ahead with the procedure my surgery was scheduled for less than a week after my consultation. This made me a bit nervous but Chandra assured me that I would see the results immediately- she was right! I cannot express enough positive words of my experience from beginning to end. Everyone at Sono Bello reassured me that I had made the right decision. My surgery went so well (even though I dont remember much of it) Dr. Flagg was awesome! I am 4 weeks post op and have dropped 2 sizes in my compression garment. I was back to my normal routine within days and it gave me the push to be healthier everyday since. If you're thinking about doing this procedure, just do it- you will be so happy that you did!”

“I wasn't extremely overweight, but wasn't completely satisfied with my appearance as I had gotten to my max weight, and no matter what I did, I just couldn't lose the weight.

I saw several ads for Sono Bello, and had thought about actually going to check them out several times, but each time I kept chickening out. After about the 4th or 6th time seeing an ad, I decided to go ahead and give it a try, and see what Sono Bello had to offer.

I must say, I'm glad I did!!!

At no time did I ever feel like I was being frowned upon by any of the staff, nor did they make me feel horrible for being slightly over my desired weight. From first contact, all the way to my follow-up, as well as the weekly email updates of what to expect, Sono Bello has been nothing but top notch!

The only thing I wish I would have done was taken off a month of work to allow my body to recuperate, but honestly, my body has been bouncing back rather impressively.

They tell you to drink plenty of water, and to wear your compression garments whenever possible. Trust the brochures and other warnings when they say not to wear tight clothing and/or belts....(the awesome nurses can actually tell! LOL)

It has been three weeks now since my procedure, and every day I see changes to my body. I am currently down 10lbs since my visit, and am looking forward to the final product.

Thank you to all of the Staff for making my decision a good one!”

The day of surgery the nurse Alisha was fantastic. She Spent enough time with me explaining everything that was going to take place. Her kind mannerism and calmness helped to decrease my nervousness, she was very sweet and I wish to have her again for my next procedure.

I did a lot of research and read a lot of reviews before I made my appointment. The office was easy to find and warm and inviting. I met with Chandra and asked my questions and got real, honest and direct answers which was exactly what I was looking for. There was never that uncomfortable "high pressure sales" feeling to our meeting. I decided to go for it. I met Dr. Flagg before my first procedure and knew I would be in good hands. He and the rest of the staff answered all my questions, made sure I was comfortable and knew what to do before the big day. The procedure itself was no sweat...they even made sure my favorite music was playing!! Recovery time was short and the pain and discomfort were minimal...it feels like sore muscles after a hard workout. Some areas were tender but all in all I was very pleasantly surprised with how I felt. I am 3 weeks out from my first procedure and one week out from my second, I can see the results already and am really excited to see how I'll look after the swelling is gone. These procedures have given me the motivation to keep eating right and working out to enhance my results and make sure I maintain my new look. I highly recommend Sono Bello!!”

“I would like to start out by saying WOW!!!! Let me explain the context in which I use the word WOW and how it applies to all aspects of Sono Bello Body Contour Center in Edina. From my initial consultation through my post procedure follow-ups I was treated with the kind of respect and kindness that made me feel more like a family member than a patient. Their honesty, transparency, skill, and compassion are simply spectacular. I had given this procedure extensive consideration since the birth of my children and father time morphed me into someone I barely recognized.
I was apprehensive and skeptical before my initial meeting with Chandra. She answered all my questions giving me the confidence and belief that I could look as beautiful on the outside as I felt inside. I then met with Dr. Flagg and the nursing staff (Alissa, Jordan, Nina and Sara) and I knew I had made the right choice.
My procedures included abdomen, back, arms, chin, thighs, and knees. They recommended these be done in two different sessions to reduce my discomfort as I had a hectic holiday entertainment schedule beginning three days after my first procedure. Prior to these procedures I was given detailed and realistic expectations concerning pain (minimal), swelling (substantial, albeit short lived), and recovery (tolerable). It has only been a few weeks since my first procedure and one week since my second and I can not believe the difference. I look forward to getting up every day and seeing the changes. I am already beginning to receive compliments from others.
My subsequent contact with everyone at Sono Bello confirms to me that their kindness and compassion is genuine. Their attentiveness, thoroughness and follow- up are simply amazing. I could not recommend Sono Bello any more fervently. Don’t hesitate a moment longer, make the best decision of your life. WOW!”

“I came to SonoBello because I am going through menopause and struggling with losing weight. My meeting was with Chandra and she was great and made me feel excited about this. I was a little nervous. However, when talking to Chandra and telling how I got so winded when I would exercise do to the extra fat. She gave me the encouragement to go forward.

I had a C-section from my first child, in which sadly the doctor did a horrible job a sewing me up. Dr Flagg told me he could make my stomach look better in the area of my C-section. I am amazed at what a great job he did. I will always have the scar but now I am not afraid to show other people my stomach. I am two weeks out and my stomach looks great! I cannot say enough of how happy I am with everything Sono Bello and Dr Flagg has done. This has given me more of an incentive to work harder at losing the extra pounds I need to lose to get back to where I was pre menopause! I am Very excited with my new body.

“I am currently 33 years old a mother of 4. Daughter 15, Sons 5, 4, & 2-1/2. As a child and early teen I was very active and gymnast. After the birth of my daughter I gained weight and thought about lipo but cost was unrealistic. A year before I had my boys I started losing weight by working out and eating right. After I had my boys I gained most of it back. I went back to working out and eating right and maintained my goal weight but still unhappy with my thighs. My sister mentioned Sono Bello. I looked into for several months before I decided to try the free consultation. I went in thinking of a price range. While talking to the consultant she was very honest with what to expect. The quote was below expected so I went ahead and schedule the surgery for inner/outer thighs and knees. At the pre-op I met the doctor. He also made me feel really comfortable and was honest with what to expect. The day of surgery everything went according to plan and I didn't feel anything during the procedure. They were very helpful during recovery process. I had my surgery done almost 3 weeks ago. There was discomfort but nothing more than expected. I went in on a Friday. By Sunday I was on only Advil and doing normal household chores and back to work on Monday. I currently still have some swelling but the results have been wonderful.

“Very knowledgeable and professional! I admit I was a little nervous when I decided to have body contouring, however, my nerves diminished and I became excited especially after speaking to the staff at Sono Bello. I am in my late 40's and I had always been an active person, involved in athletics, however, over the last several years I had been struggling with keeping weight off of my mid-section. After discussing my problem areas with the staff at Sono Bello, they advised me of what types of procedures were available and which ones would prove to be the most effective. They were right on! It has been just over five weeks since my procedure and I am so pleased with the results!! My clothes fit!

I recommended Sono Bello to all my friends and family who have had the same problems as I did. I very much appreciate everything Sono Bello did for me - both physically and mentally! Thanks!!”

“I met with Chandra who quickly answered all my questions and concerns ie Do I have to give up beer?? LOL She was able to work with me and I felt great about the financial end of it too! It was the first time I chose to do something for myself. My procedure was scheduled quickly and Dr. Volk and Jordan did a great job keeping me comfortable and distracted. Each person that I have met with at SB has been helpful, understanding and happy (enjoying their jobs.) I look and feel great! Thank you Sono Bello.”

“Sono Bello was a wonderful experience for me! The staff is extremely nice and knowledgeable. They put me at ease and answered all my questions. The nurses and Dr. Hatfield were wonderful during my procedure, explaining exactly what they were doing the whole time.
During my week follow up visit the nurse explained to me what to expect in the upcoming months with my body shape and what I should and should not do.
I defiantly recommend Sono Bello to anyone who would like to shape and contour their body! I can't wait to see the end results this summer in my summer clothes!
Thank you Sono Bello! Deb

“As I approach my 50th year, I felt it time to take control of my health and get my self confidence back following a divorce that left a mark on how I felt about myself. I reached out to Sono Bello for a consultation on some areas that have bothered me for years. At first I really thought they would tell me they couldn't help me, that I was too far gone. I met with Chandra and she made me so comfortable, it was like talking to a girlfriend. She assured me I would be thrilled with the capabilities of the doctors and I decided it was time to take action and I made my appt. I couldn't be happier I did it! I am only two weeks post procedure and already the change is amazing. I am doing everything they told me to do and am making all the changes to my old ways and only two weeks in I am getting compliments. I can't tell you enough how great the staff and how talented the doctors are. If you are thinking about taking the step, like me, and you at all wondering what's possible, call and make that appt and talk to them. You won't regret it.”

“As an adult male in his 30s, I was ready to move beyond diet and exercise to minimize my 'spare tire'. Making the initial call was the toughest step. I contacted Sono Bello one month ago and was offered a free consultation the next week. During the meeting, Chandra explained what the center's staff could do for me and clearly outlined the associated cost. I was convinced and requested treatment the following week. Dr. Flagg and his staff were friendly, qualified, and competent. My procedure was over before I realized it. I was home asleep within hours and ready to go back to work just a few days later. From my first phone call, my treatment was complete within 14 days. One month later, I can say making that call was a wise decision.”

“I am a very active woman in my late twenties. Despite a healthy diet and daily exercise regime, I have had stubborn fat deposits in my core and arms for years.
I thought long and hard about getting any kind of surgery, (being a confirmed skeptic of such things), but I finally took the plunge this spring, fed up with never feeling comfortable in anything sleeveless. Had upper arms done, and I am floored by the results, only 3 weeks post-op.
Excellent staff, amazing medical staff- (thanks to nurse Patty & Dr. Hatfield). Procedure itself was a breeze and I was made very comfortable. Minimal pain post-op, and swelling only for a couple weeks. I look forward to seeing the long-term results, and I am very pleased so far.”

“I had been contemplating doing this procedure for about 3 months. I finally decided to do it. I decided that I would have my upper abs, lower abs, and my waist done. I was nervous going into the procedure but then I met Dr. Flagg and knew I was in good hands. I'm so happy I decided to finally do something for myself. The procedure took a few hours, but I was comfortable the entire time. I was unsure how much pain I would be in afterward, but was pleasantly surprised that I could get by just taking Ibuprofen. I had my procedure done on Wednesday and was able to return to work on Friday. After having 4 kids, I wanted my waist back. It has only been 3 weeks, but I can already see the results and I am very happy! Thank you!”

“After years of considering having my problem areas done, excercising, dieting and not seeing the results that I wanted- at almost 40, I decided it was time for a consultation. Unfortunately I went into the office on the wrong day!- No problem. The staff greeted me with open arms, made accomodations, and were extremely helpful in getting me seen. The center is clean, welcoming, and professional. I was pretty nervous about having it done, but the entire staff, including the nurses were very good at reassuring me and making me feel very comfortable with the procedure. I met Dr. Flagg and knew I was in good hands! The procedure was actually fun (is that even possible?!) Oh- it was! I had my upper, lower abs, and waist/hips done. Post-op, the only pain medication I needed was what I received the day of the procedure. I swelled a bit, but had very little bruising. The incisions healed fast and I could return to work on day 2. Im on day 11 and the swelling has gone down tremendously. I can already tell a huge difference in the way my clothes fit (no more muffin top!) I have been just so thrilled with my experience at Sono Bello- there just aren't enough good words. If you've been thinking about touching up some stubborn spots- I highly recommend them! Thank you all for being so wonderful! I feel incredible!”

“I had researched Sono Bello pretty throughly before I went in to meet with Chandra for a consultation appointment. I had several questions for Chandra in which she answered all my questions very throughly and made me feel confident in why I was there and the procedure I was getting. That day I left there feeling confident in my decision. My procedure was a week later and the day before I went in for my physical. Again, I was very nervous and scared but the nurses there were so friendly they made it much easier and reassurmed me I was still making the right decision. (a special shout out to mother hen (nurse), sorry I couldn't remember your name and Jordan (nurse) who I had the day I had the procedure I couldn't thank Dr. Hatfield enough also for making it as relaxing as it could even though I needed the max of pain medicine but once it kicked it I don't remember anything..:) Dr. Hatfield called me the next couple of days to see how I was feeling. I had my procedure done on a Saturday so that means Dr. Hatfield took time on her day off to reach out to me to make sure I was okay. Again, everyday I see results making it more exciting and promising I made the right decision and it has only been 2 weeks. I can't wait to see what I will see in 6 weeks. I look forward to going back on my 3 month check up to see all the wonderful people there from the front desk receptionist to the nurses and Dr. Hatfield. If I had to do it again I would in a heartbeat and I might just have another procedure done as I had the upper and lower abs, waist and hips. I would recommend this to anyone that is thinking about having something done and especially at the Edina Mn location. Thanks again for a wonderful experience!!!”

I saw the Sono Bello ad on TV and went in for a consult. At the very first visit I felt that I was part of the family. So friendly, kind and have all the time in the world for you. Post surgery has gone great. Back to work after a day. 20 days post op I have started high impact exercising yet, but am close to it. Thanks Sono Bello!”

“I had my stomach and flanks worked on by Dr.. Flagg and his staff and though it has only been 4 weeks and I am not at my peek results, I could not be happier with everything.
First, I was greated by the receptionist who was an absolute doll! I cannot believe that her name slips my mind right now; however she was happy and just an absolute delight! I know that there are some out there that say negative things and call her a "barbie"; however, I think that she is a delight and they could not have hired better! Her job is to be happy and make you feel comfortable; if you wanted to be treated like crap for breathing, then go to the DPS office.
Second, I had my initial conceltation with Chandra; she did not try to hide anything, which was great! With hospitals you dont find out how much somthing costs until you get your bill; she was upfront with all cost and discussed the areas of treatment that are connected. I cannot count how many post that I have read that said negative things because they were "pinched and treated like they needed everything fixed", all I have to say is that you went into a cosmetic surgey place, what did you expect! You would not go to tiremax and expect them to sell you cake would you? No. You go to a cosmetic surgery place becasue you want something fixed, not a self-esteem boost; if you want that then you need a few friends that "love you the way you are" and a therapist.
Third, I had 2 nurses that attended to me and they were the best! One had been a nurse for over 23 years at the local hospital that left in order to work for Dr. Flagg (that says it all) and the other had at least 5 years of expierence and was upfront, honest, and explained EVERYTHING to me! She was blunt, and this is so hard to find! Most people say "slight discomfort" or "manageable" those are fluff words that people use so that they can lie to your face; BUT NOT MY NURSES, they were great!!! I new exactly what to expect and they were absoutely right!
Then there is my Doctor, Dr. Flagg. Words cannot describe what kind of professional that this man is, and I could not be happier that I he was the one that treated me. I cannot wait to see my final results at month 3; because at month 1 I can say that I got more than what I wanted!!! He would send me email of "hwat to expect" and they were on point! So much so that I thought that he had ESP!!! He catered to my comfort all the way down to the minuet details (i.e. background music of my choice in the O.R.) In my pre-op, he explained the procedure in so much detail that I felt completely comfortable for my procedure.
I think that you are a complete fool if you choose to go elsewhere.”

“I attended a Sono Bello open house spontaneously with a girlfriend. I had never seriously considered lipo suction but was completely sold on the idea after meeting the doctors and staff.

I recommend Sono Bello to anyone considering this type of procedure. It has been a wonderful exciting experience.”

“I am 9 days out from my procedure and am nothing but happy! From the first contact, ease of scheduling and the amazing staff I have nothing but good to say. The procedure itself, while sounding scary, was painless and needed very little pain control even after. Even now, with the swelling I am already happy with the results. Time is only going to make it better .I would not hesitate for a minute to do this again. If you are on the edge, go talk to them. You won't be sorry!

I felt at ease as soon as I walked in, Then I had my consultation with Chandra and she was so sweet and very informative about everything she took very good care of me and I appreciated her kindness very much. She made sure I had my procedure as soon as I could and I had it on New Years Eve, I met Dr Volk and again it was like talking to an old friend he was too very nice and very professional answered all my questions and I left feeling very excited and very confident that this was the right decision and he was the prefect Dr. to do my procedure. On my procedure day I had Nurse Patty and she was another sweetheart and an awesome nurse she took good care of me getting me ready for the procedure. I want to thank ALL that were a part of my time there and I would recommend anyone thinking about having any kind of body contouring to DEFINITELY go to Sono Bello your not just another patient there your like family.

“I went into Sono Bello knowing this is not a loose weight quick gimmick. I was more worried about the overall shape of my body and not the number on the scale. I was able to get in and have my procedure done only after 2 days of first meeting with the staff. Dr Flagge made me feel comfortable and never once did I second guess myself before having the procedure. The surgery took about two and a half hours and even though you are not put under I don't remember anything about the procedure. I remember telling the doctor after the surgery I had no pain which I didn't and still not have had any real major pain in the 10 days after surgery. The day after I removed my bandages and replaced with some knew ones. This was my first chance to see myself after surgery and I was very pleased. I looked thin and fit, but the days after I have had a lot of swelling which I was told is normal. My incisions healed very fast and are already scabbed over and seem to be getting smaller each day. My swelling is slowly going down and I'm very excited to see my results in 6 months. The swelling does discourage you a bit because I was actually bigger than when I went in for the procedure, but you have to just remember its just swelling. On day 9 I went in for my post op and was 5 pounds lighter. Ive been trying to not eat any junk food or drink any pop after the surgery because this is my new life and I don't want to ruin it like I have over the past 8 years with fast food and pop every day. If you are on the fence I would highly recommend Sono Bello In Edina, MN the staff is amazing and so are the doctors. I would go through it again without hesitation. ”

“After 26 years of diet and exercise om and off, which never achieved the results I wanted, I was still over weight and not happy. I had thought about a tummy tuck but was not thrilled about the procedure and recovery time or the scar that it would leave. I have had two c-sections and have never been able to reduce my abs no matter how many crunches I did. My trainer even told me it would never go away - (That was encouraging). Watching TV one night, a Sono Bello commercial came on. I figured what do I have to lose with the consultation being FREE. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The procedure was a piece of cake. It has been 16 days since my procedure which included Upper / Lower Abs, Hips and Waist. I was up and about the same day of my procedure and returned to work the next day. The results are amazing. Down 4 sizes in the 16 days and lost 10 pounds. It seems like my body changes daily (for the better) and I feel GREAT! With eating healthy and exercising I feel I can achieve my ultimate body image of myself. Not only did it help my body image but I feel it helped my overall health. When meeting Dr. Hatfield in my pre-op exam, she gave me a realistic description of what I could expect. I didn't want to get my hopes up too high. The results are beyond Dr. Hatfields' description. I am ECSTATIC! with the results!!! I can't wait for my 3 and 6 month checkups. Dr. Hatfield, Dr. Ben and the whole Sono Bello staff were fantastic. My only advise to anyone that is thinking about the procedure is "Don't wait like I did" it is definitely worth it and so are you:) ”

“After many years of tried and failed exercise routines and "magic pills", I decided to give Sono Belo a call. Figuring that if I can at least have the body fat in the wrong places(spare tire, waist and upper back), removed then I can work on the rest hopefully with results I'm looking for. Did I mention I'm male and 55 years old. M
My experience at Sono Belo was really good. The people I was directly involved with were really easy to talk with, and seemed genuinely concerned about my health, needs, and prospects of the results.
I do have to add though. the after surgery recovery is a bit harder than I anticipated, or had been warned of. It took close to a week before I wasn't in quite a bit pain when moving around. But they were on the money about the swelling. As of today I'm still not where I want to be, but it's getting better all the time, did I mention that it's only been 12 days since the procedure, so in reality as the swelling continues to decrease, I'm confident the results will be to my satisfaction”

“I had been faithfully going to the gym for years, even working with a trainer for a year, but my "problem areas" would not go away no matter how hard I worked. I made the decision to go in for a consult and to see what Sono Bello had to offer. All of the staff were very nice to work with, and I arranged to have 3 areas addressed by Dr. Volk. There was some discomfort with the procedure (I wouldn't call it pain), however Dr. Volk addressed the situation to make me more comfortable. I am only one month out from my procedure and am already seeing a new figure emerging; I can't wait to see the final results in the next few months. The emails I have received at various intervals since the procedure, telling me what I should be expecting, have been very helpful and encouraging.

I knew I was in good hands. The prcedured was done and I had little after pain. I didn't even need the pain pills. You do need to follow instructions to the T.
