“Staff is very pleasant. Doctor did a very good job.
There were brief times during the consultation and when given pre and post-op instructions, I felt that when I was being talked to, the staff had said these instructions a million times before. They were going too fast for me to totally comprehend or understand what they were saying.”

“I got the procedure I've been wanting at Sono Bello. I wanted to write a review because they took excellent care of me. I had barely any bruising, minimal pain after surgery. I was contacted almost daily during the first week following surgery. They were very helpful to me and provided me with a care package that has everything I needed to achieve optimal results. The care that I got at Sono Bello has erased my fear that previously stood in my way of going after my goals of fat reduction.”

“My liposuction and skin removal was great. After a few weeks I had lost 26 pounds. My tummy is flat again and the excess skin is gone.

There was a small area that did not heal as it should have and it made a cherry size bump on my left hip. When I went for my 6 month appointment, my aftercare nurse asked Dr Aghayan to look at the small area. He fixed it a couple of weeks later. Cat the surgery nurse was congenial during my fix. I am very happy with all of the results and all of the staff. When I walked through the door, Cheryl on the front desk called me by name.
Thank you all!!”

My nurses, Cat and Stefani, where so great, they made sure that I was comfortable throughout my procedure. I was very comfortable throughout the whole surgery.

I could see the next day that I had a change, and then the swelling that I expected came on. But I can still see a difference. Even my family dose. Can't wait to see my final results!

I would defiantly do it again and would recommend it to friends!”

“I am 38 years old and a mother of 5 children. Over the course of the 5 pregnancies I had developed a fatty flap at the bottom of my abdomen. No loose skin just fat. And even after getting back down to my prepregnancy weight, I couldn't get rid of it. So I looked at a few places and decided to go with sono bello. I went for my consultation and the staff was very nice and professional. I didn't sit in the waiting area for a long time waiting to see my nurse or the surgeon. And that told me that they didn't over book their clients and my procedure wouldn't be a rush job. I didn't have the money to pay up front for the procedure and they helped me with that to. My surgeon went over the procedure with me and told me that I should be realistic about my results. At first I was worried but Jennifer my consultant was very helpful in reassuring me that I had one of the best plastic surgeons aboard. He had the best bed side manor imaginable. And being a nurse myself, it really made a difference. He discussed the risk of the procedures and instructed me to get cleared by my cardiologist before the procedure could be done. The day of my procedure I arrived a little early and I was taken to the back immediately. I was greeted by my nurse and my surgeon. He drew on my stomach and asked me if I was ready. I was so nervous. I don't remember how long the procedure took. I fell asleep during the procedure. When I woke up we were done. The nurse put a abdominal binder on me and said everything went well. She was very gentle with me during and after the procedure. She gave my caregiver excellent instructions about how to mange pain and to make sure I continued to Take my antibiotics. I wasnt in pain right away but the next day I really felt it. My caregiver helped me with my bath the next day and when she took off my binder it was breath taking. I had curves again!!. She looked at me and said you look so sexy right now. Even with the swelling l was satisfied with the results. She had the same surgery done a couple of years ago in the Dominican republic and she had multiple areas of hard scar tissue. She said"your results are so good,I wish I had your surgeon." I'm still swollen and today I was able to wear a pair of spandex tights without packing 2 stomachs into them and wearing a long t shirt to cover up. My kids said its kinda weird that I don't have that mommy tummy anymore. I feel great!! Thank you Sono bello”

“I am 58 years old and was told that no matter what I did with diet and exercise my mid section was going to expand due to age and menopause. This was unexceptable, my daughter told me about Sonobello I decided to check it out and I could not have been happier. I had the laser lipo on my abdomen and arms, Dr. Malin, NurseTeresa, and after Care Nurse Aleathic were all amazing. I would definitely recommend Sonobello Portland Office so professional, caring and the results are absolutely beyond amazing. So take that menopause......”

“So my story begins with menopause, I am 59 years old I watch what I eat and work out 4-5 days a week. I started to notice my mid section expanding no matter what I did diet or exercise. I went into the doctors for my physical and was told that once you hit age 55 this is what happens to your body and basically there was nothing I could do. This was unacceptable to me, my daughter had told me about Sonobello so I decided to book a consultation to explore my options. The reception staff was amazing, so professional and welcoming, I decided to go ahead with the Laser Liposuction. I met with Dr. Malin and he explained the procedure in detail and was very comforting I admit I was a little nervous, but Dr. Malin's put me at ease and I actually felt excited about getting my body back. The day of the surgery I met with my nurse Teresa loved her she knew I was still a little nervous and she put me at ease they let you pick your music to hear during the procedure I loved it. Dr. Malin came in right before the procedure and confirmed the areas of the surgery and gave me the sedatives. During the procedure I was awake and relaxed. After the procedure went home and slept the reminder of the day. The next morning I woke up and looked at body and could not believe how tiny I was, realizing that the swelling had not set in, but I knew from day one my results were going to amazing. What I really loved about Sonobello is there follow up from the phones call to the weekly emails you receive to let you know what it is going on with body (the best), including meeting with my after care Nurse Aleathic , she is the best I always felt I was her only patient, from her explanation of what the next steps were going to take place, to the suggestions for making me comfortable. Six months later, AMAZING RESULTS take that menopause. From the staff to the results I am so elated and would recommend this procedure and going to the Sonobello Office in Portland they are the best.”

“I am an older lady who wanted my clothes to fit and get my waistline back. This was the easiest way to do it, without dieting or exercising.

“In my book no one place is ever 100%. That being said, I was very impressed from the beginning of my adventure to present. The first appointment was very informative. She explained what the procedure would entail and was very forthcoming on the cost. On the day of the procedure it went as planned. No surprises, no pushed to get extras. Later that day they called to follow up on how I was doing. Do your research before any procedure. I do recommend Sono Bello.”

“I was not prepared for how painful and long lasting recovery would be. The swelling and discomfort was minimized in initial description. The explanation being that everyone heals differently when I experienced more pain and longer discomfort than I expected. This was not a minor procedure, as I had falsely perceived. I was in no way able to get back to work in three days as projected. I missed a week and went back to work with serious discomfort and fatigue into the second week. I feel the Dr. and staff were supportive and caring, but I would not recommend this procedure to anyone if asked. It is so much more painful and requires so much more time to heal than I realized it would. I think the amount of fat removed and number of areas treated made this more difficult for me. Other people probably have experienced a quicker recovery.”

“My overall experience was amazing all of the staff were very friendly, I felt extremely comfortable and relaxed from the first appointment through surgery.

When I ask the Dr I got the feeling that it would had been obvious (I can provide examples). Please feel free to contact me if needed.

“I had liposuction of my abdomen, waist, and flanks with Dr. Malin, a board-certified plastic surgeon. I am so beyond happy with the care I received and with my results. The surgery was six months ago, and it's true, the results keep getting better with time as your body heals and your skin tightens up. I went from feeling frumpy, lumpy, chubby, bumpy, rocking that economy-sized muffin top all the time, to now feeling like a curvy bombshell. Clothes fit better. I am more confident naked (important in Portland, with the naked bike ride and all! lol).

I met Dr. Malin during my pre-op consultation - that's the visit where they draw all over you - and I was encouraged by his amiability and professionalism. It was important to me that my doctor be board-certified, so Dr. Malin's certification put me at ease. There were also some great reviews of him on realself.com, an online forum for people interested in talking to others freely about plastic surgery and other cosmetic procedures. On the day of the surgery, I was given diazepam and something else (the memory is hazy, as you might imagine) to keep me sedated but not generally anesthetized. I felt nothing and remember nothing from the procedure. In fact, my first memory after the procedure is from hours later, when my friend who took me home was hanging out in my apartment with me, just making sure I was ok. On the first day my results looked amazing, and then (as I was told to expect) the swelling set in. I went back to work on post-op day four. Personally, if I had a more sedentary job, that would have been fine, but I have an active job and I would have benefited from another day of rest. I made it through, though! The swelling lessened dramatically about one week after the procedure, but it persisted a little bit for a couple months. I lived in maxi dresses.

I came to Sono Bello for all my scheduled post-op appointments. I was surprised that I didn't really lose any weight - maybe two pounds total? But think about what a pound of butter looks like - that was basically removed from the areas I disliked on my body. 100% worth it. My scars have healed really nicely. They're visible but they look no bigger or darker than, say, an acne scar, and they'll still lighten up with time. I started dating someone new after the procedure and he didn't even notice the scars until I showed him. When I told him I had liposuction, I was concerned what he would think, but he just said "whatever makes you happy." So for anyone worrying about what people would think of you if you had a cosmetic procedure: anyone worth your time will respect the decisions you make about your body, especially when you're trying to feel better about yourself.

Most importantly to me, my results affected more than my physical appearance. Since I was young I've always struggled with my body image, and that kind of self-consciousness sometimes permeated into the other things I do. Since having liposuction, some of that self-consciousness has simply fallen away. Is my body perfect now? No! But taking a dramatic step to change something about my body that diet and exercise never could, and then needing to be kind and nurturing to myself while I healed, changed something in me and now I have this attitude of generous acceptance of myself and my body. I don't think people realize that a cosmetic procedure can have this kind of effect on somebody, but it's really proven an amazing turning point for me.

Bottom line: if you're thinking about it, I recommend it! Dr. Malin and his team will take really great care of you.”

“I went to them a few times. It is important to do your research on the doctor. They are just a facility that allow doctors from the areas to do their medical procedures at their clinic. I wasn't happy with my first doctor but my second doctor was great. This isn't a perfect science and if you have body dysmorphia then you might want to really think about how you will or won't feel after the procedure. A lot of people rush to think their bodies will turn slender immediately but it takes time for the swelling to go down and healing to happen. They are staffed with the appropriate medical people that will help with realized problems. I had a seroma from the body garment not fitting properly but they were able to drain it and it healed just fine. I am thinking about going back for my chin. Also, it is advantageous to go back to the same facility because you don't have to pay the surgical facility fee anymore. As far as the other reviews I see on here... the sales team is exceptional. No one is pointing a gun at your head as far as what package(s) you choose. They have personal experience as patients and know what they are talking about. They bring the doctor in if necessary. You will have a consultation with the doctor too. I hope this helps!”

“I am a 51-year-old man in Portland, Oregon. Since my early 20s, my buddy took on a pear shape in my midsection. I’ve developed a belly and love handles, complete with what people call birthing hips.
I have always been height/weight proportionate, but for some inexplicable reason I had unwanted midsection wait and was unhappy with my appearance. I tried everything from diet and exercise to starving myself at times to try to get rid of this problem, and nothing worked. I just ended up looking like a very skinny person who was shaped like a pear.
For my 50th birthday, I rewarded myself with a trip to sono Bello. My consultation was very pleasant, and everyone in the office was very kind, understanding, and helpful. I decided to have the procedure done on my upper mid section, my belly, and my love handles.
I was astonished at the results! I mean, seriously astonished! I knew that they would improve me because I had spoken with so many people and done so much research on the company.
All I can tell you now is that I went shirtless for the first time since 1994, and with confidence!
It has now been over a year, and I still look fantastic. I cannot recommend sono Bello any higher than I do. My favorite staff member there is Candace, and the doctor who performed my procedure was Dr. Malin. What an amazing job he did! Trust your instincts on this one people, and to make yourself feel beautiful and happy. I most certainly do! Thank you, sono Bello, and all of your staff. I am a man who is beyond satisfied.

“Friendly, professional staff. Clean, beautiful waiting room. Appointments always on schedule. Questions answered and information given. Doctor and medical personnel were very respectful and gave privacy and assistance with pictures and changing clothes etc. I am 100% please after my procedure with just being 12 days post op. I receive emails and feel like I have been cared for and given opportunities to call and or receive any questions or concerns I may have. My procedure was fairly easy for me with me needing very little pain med, and was back to a normal routine in 2 days time. I have already highly recommend Sono Bello to my friends and family. And will consider other procedures in the future.”

“What a tentative skeptic I was. Wanted to keep a positive, open mind so I listened, looked at photos, did my research, and asked a TON of questions. My scenario: 2 C-section births (23+ years ago) and a serious skin/fat "dunlap" from a recent weight loss. Having been at this new low weight before, I knew no amount of exercise would get rid of my l'il friend, Dunlap. And WOW!!!! I'm 5 weeks post-op and HUGELY delighted!!! Yes, there was bruising. Yes, there was swelling. All expected and normal. But Holy Smokes!!! Fantastic result!!! Couldn't be more pleased and it gets better daily as the healing continues. I had the Tri-Sculpt E/X, highly effective procedure.
Do your own research. Listen. Look at the photos. I've taken my own progressive photos and this is AMAZING! Thanks to the AWESOME team at Sonobello, Happy Camper over here!!!

“I had read a number of Yelp reviews and hesitated to book a consultation at Sono Bello because of some poorly rated ones. Yet, Sono Bello had a special whereby you could have one liposuction treatment area done for free when you paid for 3 other areas, so I decided to see for myself. I was completely "sold" after my consultation with Nicole Bradshaw, the practice leader. I didn't experience her as a salesperson however, I experienced her as someone who sincerely cared, and offered a solution to a problem, so to speak. I eat modestly, have no processed foods of any kind in my diet, work closely with a nutritionist and exercise most days of the a week. Yet, I had some areas of extra fat that I clearly could not have reduced or removed with diet and exercise alone; one of which was there since I was a child. I trusted Nicole intuitively and sensed that she would oversee my experience to ensure it was a positive one. My intuition has served me very well. Nicole has really extended herself to me and has spent a fair amount of time on the phone and in person at the clinic every step of the way. I am just shy of the 3 week mark post op and the recovery was easier than I feared. I wouldn't characterize it as easy, but definitely do-able. I didn't take any narcotics after the procedure, and after the first week, I started to feel much more comfortable. Since I am considerably less inflamed and swollen at this point, I can already see some results, and am quite pleased overall. There may be some areas that Dr. Malin "touches up" complimentary with an additional treatment in 6 months, which is one of the reasons I chose Sono Bello. They will ensure that the final results are as anticipated and hoped for, within reason, of course. I had feedback to offer Nicole about what I think could have improved my experience in a couple of ways and she was very receptive.
I think every staff member sincerely cares, and I have felt well supported. I know that they've celebrated in my results so far as well. I am very excited to see where I will be at the 3 month mark post op and may add to my review at that point. I only wish I had done this sooner. I had considered it for years! My inclination was to keep this experience private, and not to write a public review, however I really wanted others who may hesitate due to some of the poor reviews, to read mine. I definitely would recommend that anyone who has an interest schedule a consultation and see for themselves before they are scared off by some of the 1 star reviews.
Update - I also wanted to add, please keep in mind that poor reviews don't necessarily reveal the whole story, and Sono Bello can't offer a "rebuttal" or share their perspective because of their commitment to patient privacy. Also, there are a number of hidden reviews here on Yelp that helped me decide to have a consultation.
Update - I wanted to write an update on my first review since I've now not only had liposuction twice, but experienced the Venus treatments and have had a Sono Bello Lift as well. I have transformed in ways that has left me so much more comfortable and confident in my own skin, and I am so deeply appreciative to all the staff and physicians at Sono Bello. As a repeat customer many times over now, I continue to be extremely pleased with my overall experience. There have been a few concerns that have come up for me, but Candace Loyd who now overseas the clinic has ensured that they were all addressed in a way I am satisfied with. In addition, she has taken the time to support my recovery every step of the way. I have really appreciated her sincere care about my experience, and her desire for me to have a positive one. I think both Dr. Malin who performed my liposuction and Dr. Campanelli who performed my Lift are very skilled, kind and supportive and I appreciate the care I've received from each of them. Ellisha Leal who administers the Venus treatments advocated for me to have it done on my stomach, as well as neck and arms, post liposuction, and I am so happy I added my stomach to the line up. We've seen very clear results, as my skin is much more toned and firm than the liposuction alone resulted in. I recommend her as a skilled and supportive practitioner as well. The staff at Sono Bello of Portland have really extended themselves to me in so many ways and I continue to recommend the clinic wholeheartedly. I really look forward to my visits as I truly love to connect with the very warm and friendly staff.
The treatment options below didn't allow me to chose all of them: Liposuction, Liposuction Revision and Face Lift!”

“I thought I was too old to make the changes I wanted in my body, but…. at 63 I can tell everyone that it is never too late to take steps to improve your body, which of course, improves your mind! The procedure was a breeze! The physician and staff were awesome. They took the time to manage my expectations from start to finish. The doctor was right on when he said it takes a full year to see the desired outcome, and at first I was impatient. At 90 days, still a bit concerned that I wasn’t getting the results I wanted, I was told to be patient, that I was still early in the healing process. At 6 months I REALLY began to see the difference. I have a waistline again! The costs are reasonable, and the entire experience resulted in peace of mind. I would recommend Sonobello to anyone even remotely thinking along the lines of body contouring. The consultation is free, and the experience in whole, is rewarding.”

They explained the entire process thoroughly and made me aware of what to expect, so nothing was a surprise and I was back to work in a couple of days. My recovering has been phenomenal and my results couldn’t be better. This was a great decision because I feel better than ever and am ready for anything that comes my way. Its amazing how you feel when you go to the gym and are working on yourself instead trying to fix things you may not like. Its an extreme confidence booster and makes you feel good.

I actually teared up talking to shab and DR Saxon. This is MY body, MY health, MY life!!! I need to get back into control. I knew this wasn't a "quick" fix, but it was MY new beginning. I was seen as a beautiful person stuck inside a "fat" body, a healthier version of "ME" SCREAMING to come out. Eye contact, truly hearing me, and the amount of encouragement of WE WILL DO THIS TOGETHER! I believe in everything happens for a reason. I was meant to find my way to that office that day.....it was MY new beginning. I had my LIPO a week ago, and it was the BEST choice I've made for MYSELF in a very long time!!! My husband smiles cause I no longer snore, my knees no longer hurt..... I CAN SQUAT AGAIN!!!!!! I have energy, I am mindful of what I'm putting in my body, and I have inspired my daughter to change her own way of thinking. EVERYONE AT THIS OFFICE IS AMAZING!!!!! I know I have a long road ahead of me, but I know I'm on the RIGHT road. I took MY LIFE BACK! I know if I EVER start to feel discouraged I just gotta pick up that phone.....and I am not alone. To know I couldn't look into the mirror without crying, killing myself at the gym, every diet I've ever tried not work, all those struggles........to now I smile even with the bruises, the fact my clothes....I am not afraid to show ME! I will refer EVERYONE that ever asks me about it to SONO BELLO! This was a life changing experience, and I'm not in it alone. I am family...........NOT a patient.”

“Im a single mom of 2 kids. Im busy with work and kids and unfortunately put on some weight. I also have some lower back pain. The Sonobello in Portland was awesome! All of the staff were nice and pleasant and seemed to enjoy their job. I made a consultation and Shab was amazing. She answered all my questions and helped me and made me feel comfortable with my choices. Dr. Saxon and Cherie are an AWESOME team! I couldn't have asked for anyone better. I was so nervous, but they put me at ease and explained everything, they were joking and down to earth and just made me feel really comfortable. The procedure itself wasn't that bad. I didn't know what to expect. I just read reviews online. The meds worked well and I barely felt anything 9/10 for pain. Afterwards though is a little different. Its what I expected, soreness, swelling and pain. I had lower and upper abs, hips and waist done. I had a lot of fat to get rid of, so more pain and swelling. I had it done on Wed and was in the office on Fri. Even the follow up care nurse, Kristen was great. Its only been a week after the procedure, but so far Im loving the results! I look down and just see my boobs, no belly... Its great!! I cant wait to see what it looks like with no swelling. This is something that Ive thought about for such a long time. I wish I wouldve done it sooner. My experience was wonderful and I would do it again. I highly recommend it. If you've ever thought about, just do it or at least make a consultation appointment!

“Since last fall I have lost 65 pounds. But I still have a roll around my middle and I want it gone!!!! I really haven't considered lipo very long, but after seeing the before and after pictures on this site and finding out that I could finance it, I decided very quickly to do it. I went to Sonobello and have been very pleased with their professionalism and their readiness to respond to my many questions. I am having upper and lower abdomen and sides done. My weight is 148 now. I really want to get under 142 so that my BMI will be in the normal range. Also my waist circumference is 36 which I know is unhealthy, besides just looking bad.
I have not seen many older women posting to this site and I'm not sure why, but I must say that I am 60 years old. Since losing the 65 lbs I do feel better about myself and I look better in clothes but I want more. The woman at Sonobello said that the max that the surgeon can take off someone my size is about 7 lbs. and that it would address about 70-80% of the fat. I will be very happy with that result!!
I'm not too worried about the procedure itself. I think the draining will be a bit of a drag but happily it won't last long. I'm not looking forward to living in a compression garment, especially in the middle of summer, but that is such a minor inconvenience. Maybe I will be surprised and it will be hard, but my mind is made up that I will sail through this to the other side. I will meet the surgeon in a week. The salesperson ( who was very helpful and informative) said that he is aggressive at removing the maximum fat, which made me happy. The Sonobello enterprise seems well run and like they really have the details all figured out, so I have confidence in them. I can't wait for August 5 to be here!!!!”

She really listened to every what I was saying and we concluded with the perfect body shape (in my eyes) that I wanted to have. I am a single mom and am by far not rich.

“It's been five weeks since my procedure and the results really are incredible. Not only is my body continuing to change but this has given me new incentive to eat healthier resulting in a 10 pound weight loss over these past weeks. Everyone I've met with at Portland's clinic has been beyond kind and always provided top notch customer service making this a much easier process.”

“I had a great experience at Sono Bello. The front desk staff were all pleasant to deal with. Dr. Malin was my surgeon. I would highly recommend him to anyone considering lipo. He was very personable. My surgical nurse Liz was very comforting. I enjoyed being cared for by the two of them. Kristen, my aftercare nurse was very helpful with pain management recommendations and walking me through the healing process. I am now 1wk post op and very happy with my overall experience at Sono Bello. Portland has an awesome staff!”

“My experience with Sono Bello Portland was and still is fantastic! They have the best staff! They have been so very informative, patient, kind, helpful and supportive since the 1st day I walked into their office. Shab D., Nicole B., Sara R. and Dr. Sobel were nothing short of amazing! Dr. Sobel is an incredible doctor! He was completely honest and forthcoming on exactly what he could do for me and made me feel very comfortable. I know how lucky I am to have been able to get him as my doctor. I had my procedure done just over 3 months ago and I am loving the results and extremely excited to see my body continue to change. I am loving being able to wear clothes that I have been uncomfortable to wear in the past but now I look good in them. I have gone from wearing XL scrubs to now wearing M! I can't begin to tell you how much better I feel about myself and how much of a happier person I am. I am a single parent and I was very apprehensive in spending money on myself like this but Shab really helped to make it happen and it has been one of the best decisions I've made for myself....my 2 sweet kiddos think so as well. :) Thank you all so very much!!”

“I thought I was too old to make the changes I wanted in my body, but.... at 63 I can tell everyone that it is never too late to take steps to improve your body, which of course, improves your mind! The procedure was a breeze! The physician and staff were awesome. They took the time to manage my expectations from start to finish. The doctor was right on when he said it takes a full year to see the desired outcome, and at first I was impatient. At 90 days, still a bit concerned that I wasn't getting the results I wanted, I was told to be patient, that I was still early in the healing process. At 6 months I REALLY began to see the difference. I have a waistline again! The costs are reasonable, and the entire experience resulted in peace of mind. I would recommend Sonobello to anyone even remotely thinking along the lines of body contouring. The consultation is free, and the experience in whole, is rewarding. Stephanie Taylor”

“Day One.
Surgery was easy. About an hour or so. Removed 1 liter of fat (2.2 pounds) from my abdomen. And about a 1/10 of that worth from my thighs. Felt like a massage, not bad at all, except a couple areas felt sharp pain where I had prior surgeries. Drainage was over within about 30 hours, in the mean time changed a lot of bandages. Can't see my results yet, due to swelling, but I'm up and about and feel pretty good. Just a little more tired than usual. Wearing compression garments 24/7 for the first few days.”

For years I fought the ever increasing "middle" and now I can wear pants, dresses, and skirts again, and feel great about how I look.
This has given me the motivation to keep excercising when I don't want to, but the results get better all the time, so I will keep at it for the rest of my life! I am actually planning a vacation to a beach resort! Get out the bathing suits again! :)

“The entire staff at Sono Bello has been wonderful throughout this journey. Many of the nurses who have assisted over the course of my visits, know first hand how important a healthy self-image is for patients, and for women patients in particular. Dr. Bensimon performed my second procedure and I appreciate his approach so much. He has a comforting bedside manner, describing what realistic outcomes should be expected. But the nurses help to allay anxieties too. Kim has been my RN for over a year now, and I trust her assessments without hesitation.
It's important for patients to appreciate that this is not a miracle "do over." It is a critical step in a series of new beginnings as a renewed commitment to changed eating habits (I now eat paleo -- an option that allows me to feel full at every meal) and regular exercise. Thank you Dr. Bensimon, Kim, and Team Sono Bello.”

“Everyone at Sono Bello has been so kind and supportive. I didn't go into Sono bello with the illusion that I would walk out a super model nor did I expect the procedure to be "cheap". I paid around $8000 and got my abdomen , waist, hips and bra rolls reduced. Dr. Saxon was fantastic. He has great bedside manner and (in my opinion) more importantly he was a great surgeon. I know I am not done healing but my stomach is already flat, my love handles (let's just say they aren't getting much love anymore) and my bra rolls are virtually gone. I will be going back to get my arms, inner thigh and outer thigh treated in the future. I have been eating much healthier and working out 3 times a week since my procedure and for the first time in a decade I an motivated. I used to get so discouraged because I never saw results.

“This review says it is being done by Cody Helgerson I accidently signed in under his name. This review is being done by me Tinker H. I will be having 3 different procedures done. I have had 2 so far and I have to Thank all the Staff for making me feel comfortable.
Dr. Saxon is a amazing human being. He made me feel so comfortable & went out of his way to make sure that I would get my procedures done because blood clots run in my family which was my Aunt & Uncle. Dr. Saxon had to get permission from the head medical dr. He told Dr. Saxon that he would not be able to proceed with my procedures due to the blood clots & in fear that I could get them from these procedures.
After Dr. Saxon told me this he knew that I was very upset because I was so looking forward to getting all the stubborn fat removed. So Dr. said he thought about what he could do for me all night long, so he called his medical Dr. the next morning and proceeded to tell him that he would like to do the procedures in 3 instead of 2. He got the ok. So I then received a phone call from him around 10 that morning. I then talked with Tonya at the front desk to set a time for me to come in. As we live on the Coast, but we stayed that night in Portland. So when she called she said can you come in at 3:30 that day which was Aug. 20th I said of course because she was afraid we had left to come back home to the coast. So I was then so excited & nervous to get my procedure done.
I met with Dr. Saxon gave him a hug & told him Thank you so much for going out of his way to make sure he could help me. The nurses I had was Sara & Sharon oh these girls were so caring made sure I was comfortable and we talked alot & laughed.
My 2nd procedure was done on Sept. 3rd & the nurse I had that time was Lyn. She is a young nurse & she also made sure I was comfortable and we talked about families and she made me feel calm.
So my next procedure will be done on my birthday what a birthday present to me.
Thank you again

“I honestly had a great experience. Shab was wonderful! She was very honest. She didn't sugar coat anything! She informed me of what I could honestly expect for my outcome (funny thing is , my expectations were exceeded). Sarah my LPN during the surgery was AMAZING! She was positive and full of excitement. Her great energy really calmed my nerves. Nicole at the front desk welcomed me with warm regards on every visit. She made me feel like I was apart of the establishments family. She was always willing to answer any of my questions and if she didn't know the answer she quickly found the right person for me to talk to (usually Shab). My doctor Bensimon was phenomenal. He was super pleasant and made me feel very comfortable. He was caring and empathetic and made sure that I was aware that everyone has insecurities and that it was ok to want to strive for a better physical appearance (since that is what I wanted). From start to finish, he remained very aware of my comfort level through-put the entire process. He provided me with a ton of positive outcomes and he reassured me that I was going to have great results. He admitted that he cant perform miracles but I was guaranteed to see a dramatic difference. Dr. Bensimon contacted me the day after the surgery to check on me. He personally called me. At that time he informed me that he wouldn't be seeing me again and that I would be meeting with the Sono Bella RN at my one week follow up.
At my 1 week follow up you could visibly see a dramatic difference in my physical appearance. I was told that I would probably not see a difference at my one week follow up and that I would probably appear bigger. However, this was not the case for me. You could see a huge change.
I'm VERY VERY VERY Happy with my outcome. I'm even every where and I feel like I was taken care of completely.

“I don’t normally write reviews, but I really feel the need to express myself about my experience with Sonobello & Dr. Malin:
I have been unhappy with my body image for quite a while now. Through the years I have put on weight and feel I have tried about everything to lose it but just end up losing a little but gaining a lot. I have grandchildren and would really like to keep up with them as they grow but I can’t see that happening with the extra weight I am packing around. I work in the office of my families trucking business and have a TV on all the time. I can’t count the numerous times I have seen and tuned into the Sonobello commercials and wondered if that would work for me or if I could afford to find out. I finally called and made an appointment for a consultation. I was so nervous but felt comfortable as soon as I entered the office. Everyone was friendly and, especially, they did not judge me. They truly wanted to make me happy and help me succeed. Dr. Malin was amazing! I didn’t want to reveal my body to anyone, but there I was, and I had to do it…disrobe. He made me feel comfortable immediately. He is professional but down to earth, serious but made me laugh too. He really cares about me succeeding and does that without judgement. It is really hard for me to explain the comfort zone that the whole Sonobello team “tossed” me into, meaning that I really didn’t have a choice, I was just that comfortable. If it seems I’m not making much sense, well…thats why I don’t normally write reviews. It is just so hard to choose the right words when I am so pleased with something.
I would just like to say “Thank you” to everyone at Sonobello for helping me.

My doctor was great, I wish I could remember his name, and my 2 nurses were wonderful, Denise and Sherry. I would highly recommend.
I have read many of the negative reviews. The gal who signed me up wasn't a medical professional, nor does she profess to be.

“I had my first procedure with Dr. Bensimon on March 24th 2012. I was 250lbs and at the heaviest I had ever been. Then on April 25th 2012 I went for the rest of procedure. I dropped 30-40lbs within a couple weeks. By the time I went Hawaii in July I was down to 180lbs. I using a walker before my procedure and by the time I went to Hawaii I was using a cane. The pressure that I had on my back because of all the weight was gone! I was so motivated; this my jump start propelled me into changing my life. I felt alive again! I changed my diet; I cut out all carbs, no pasta, no sugar and no bread. I ate tuna fish and chicken breast with vegetables and fruits, fresh and cooked both. I drank 8-10 24oz bottles of water a day. I cut out all my sodas.
Sono Bello changed my life; Dr Bensimon is an angel if it was not for him I would have died. He changed my entire life, he is a miracle worker. This was such a blessing. Before this my health was deteriorating and I had lost all motivation to even live. I was on so many pain medications, a blood pressure medication and tons of other medications. Dr. Bensimon did my liposuction and changed my life. I am down to 138lbs. I am getting married on May 16th, 3 years ago I didn’t even know if I would live another 3 years. I wore a size 10 on my ring finger before I started this journey and I just had my ring sized and I am a size 7.5. Thank you to Sono Bello, the entire staff and Dr. Bensimon you saved my life!”

“First of all, let me state I am NOT an employee of Sono Bello. I can't believe some of the reviews that say to not believe any of the GOOD reviews because they were written by employees. NOT true at all. I had a wonderful experience with Sono Bello! I can't BELIEVE my results! I feel and look amazing! I would never have expected my results to be as good as they are, seriously! Shab was nothing short of miraculous at putting the whole deal together for me. She was able to find financing for my whole procedure, which I didn't expect but was so grateful for! Honestly, I expected to get a quote and have to save up thousands of dollars to have this done. Less than three weeks later I was in there getting my procedure! Dr. Sobel was completely amazing and made me feel so comfortable. He did such a wonderful job. This was the springboard I needed to help me get where I want to be physically. I've started weight training, I've stepped up my cardio. It's just a procedure, but it has breathed new life into my self-care and my desire to treat myself better. I deserve it, and this helped me to realize that fact. It's been a huge confidence booster for me and I feel better than I have in years, and I'm not even two months post-procedure. I can't wait to continue to see how my results will change as time goes on. I am very, very happy that I decided to move forward with this. My nurses were wonderful and made me feel like I was valued and they are still genuinely interested in my care and well-being. I had a ton of questions both before and after my procedure and they called me back promptly and took generous amounts of time to answer all of my questions and make me feel better.

“I have struggled with my weight my entire life. I finally got my body to a point where I felt good but had excess fat that I just could not loose. I started by researching weight loss and found after being heavy as a child there was fat my body just would not get rid of and the only real way would be to have it removed. After my consultation with Shab, she further clarified what results I could expect. Her professionalism and job knowledge provided me a high level of comfort in the procedure as well as my ability to afford it with the package she put together.
After the procedure and after the swelling went down, yes it takes months, I was astonished at what a fantastic job Dr. Bensimon performed. He sculpted my body, taking away those not so lovely love handles and allowed me to have the pecks I was never able to have. Understanding expectations is vital in every aspect of life and Dr. Bensimon was able to provide me with a realistic understanding of what the results would be, and in the end I was more impressed with what he was able to do than that of what he stated.
Every member of Sono Bello’s staff treated me with the upmost respect and understood as a self-conscious male struggling with the idea of cosmetic surgery; they provided me with information and support allowing me the ability to move forward and through the entire process with confidence.
If ever you need or want body contouring Sono Bello should be your only place for consideration.”

We talked several times to answer all my questions. Dr. Sobel is fantastic! He also made me feel very comfortable and my procedure was painless! Thank you Dr. Sobel! Will I be back? Absolutely!!

“Very helpful and making sure I was comfortable. Their little "panic button" didn't work though. I pushed it when one side finished because I wasn't sure I should sit there in the device - still tight, but not cold. But they didn't come in for 7 minutes until the other side finished. That was a little unnerving... but other than that was very easy & comfortable!”

All of the Sono Bello staff has been great both during the procedure and as I heal. The literature I was given has provided answers to all my questions. My only surprise was that healing and results are gradual.”

“I went in for a console just to see if it was what i expected from all the reviews and other options for liop. I had some doubts but all the doctors were board certified and had good standing. The staff was nice and helpful. I booked my consultation on Monday for Thursday in the mean time I looked at other offices that offered lipo, I requested a consultation from a few and the closest date to get to see someone about pricing and if i was a good choice, was going to be on the November 29th. When i got to my appointment I was meet with helpful information and pleasant staff. I liked what I heard and was able to get the process started the next day. This was fast and the process was just as swift, Doctor Zingaro was great. The lipo took about two and a half hours, I was out the same day. Im on my third day now and most of the pain is gone it feel like I went really hard at the gym. They let you know you may not see a change in the first week but by the three month mark you see the biggest change in your body.
If you are looking into lipo and don't like the idea of going under or just want a quicker option with less down time Sono Bello will not disappoint. I dont believe this replaces life saving lipo where they take out half of your weight this is purely cosmetic, to look your best and feel better about yourself. I would fully go back to this location If i ever decide to have anything else done.”

“I've had a great experience at Sono Bello. I've had body contouring on 5 areas of my body and the procedure itself was painless and fast. My recovery time was what I expected it to be and I was back to work halftime after 5 days; full time after 2 weeks. The staff at the Portland location are very nice and eager to answer any questions you may have. Shab is very energetic and gives a fun, stress-free consultation. The desk staff are very flexible and accommodating when it comes to last minute changes with appointments and i never feel like I'm "putting them out". I received weekly emails after my procedure as well as a personal phone call from Dr. Bensimon to check in and make sure I was doing well. The massage techniques they recommended sped up my recovery process and 3 months later I look like I am back to normal, just better than pre-surgery. I'm looking forward to having future procedures at Sono Bello Portland!”

“I went in for my appointment on 4/30 and was so ready to get my tri-sculpt procedure done and lo and behold, they were able to fit me in the next day! The entire office staff was so friendly. I met with Dr Patel and we decided that I would have five areas done; my upper and lower abs, my upper and lower back and my waist. He was so nice!
When I went in for my procedure the next day, the staff was great. Took me back, gave me my meds and I was ready. I brought my iPod and they played my music in the procedure room. When I came out, I was just a bit out of it. Went home that evening and just slept everything off without any pain meds!
When I got up the next morning, I just felt like I had done a thousand sit ups but otherwise felt fine. Even though I took the day off, I really could have gone to work. When I went to take my first shower about 24 hours after my procedure, I actually saw my waist for the first time since my mid twenties!
Day 2 after my surgery, I was out all day long with my daughter shopping. Still no pain pills! I had lots of bruising in my lower "pouch" area but I took the little pills to assist in minimizing the bruising. That was the only area in which I had bruising.
Come Monday morning, I felt great! Went to work and told my coworkers that it was the best decision that I had made.
It is now 2 weeks since my surgery and I am still very happy. I am wearing the compression garments and binding during the day and just bought the secondary compression garment.
For those of you who are considering getting this procedure done, I would highly recommend going to Sono Bello. I read a lot about the procedure and was also considering a tummy tuck but didn't want to be knocked out or have the long recovery time. This process if NOT for everyone. If you have a lot of lose skin, this may not be the procedure for you. But if your skin has good elasticity and you follow the directions as the office indicates, you will be happy with the results. For those people leaving negative responses, they should have gotten other types of surgeries instead of lipo. You need to decide before you even walk in the door if this is a procedure for you. You do see a "salesgirl" and she is the one that breaks it down and tells you the costs. The pricing is according to BMI% and having three areas done is the optimal savings. For me, it was the right thing to do but it may not be for everyone. There are costs involved just like any surgical procedure but the recovery time is so quick and the pain was minimal. I am a REAL patient and quite frankly may end up going back for the other areas that need some "help." Explore all of your options and do what is best for you. All I can say is that I HIGHLY recommend Sono Bello.”

“Sono Bello literally changed my life. The staff is outstanding!! From the first appointment with Shab, I felt comfortable, safe and confident I was making the right decision. Shab rocks!! She is honest about the procedures and made it financially possible for me to have the procedure. Dr. Bensimon, well he changed my life. He is a miracle worker. I had lipo on my upper and lower abs, hips and waist. He said he was going to have me in a bikini and this summer I will be. I was a size 16 and am now a loose 12 with a FLAT stomach. I would have never had the confidence I now have without them. I love how genuinely kind Dr. Bensimon was during the procedure it's self. I was so nervous and he talked and joked with me, making me fill at ease. Going to Sono Bello was the best decision I have ever made!!”

“I am 8 weeks post surgery (upper/lower abdomen and hips/waist) and I have had nothing but great service. From the day of the consult, pre-op, surgery and post surgery, all staff members I came in contact with were wonderful. I did read the reviews for Sono Bello, as well as other places prior to making my decision. I had a couple c-sections, thus I knew that all the loose skin in my lower abdomen would not magically disappear, but is has gone down significantly at this point and I can now fit into clothes that are 2 sizes smaller (pre-surgery). I think it also helps that I use skin tightening lotion (over the counter) constantly. I met the Dr. Zingaro at my pre-op and he walked me through the process of what would be happening the day of and stuck around to answer any questions. I walked in on the day of the surgery with absolutely no reservations. Since then, I have been checked up on and sent weekly emails on where my progress should be. They were great every step of the way.”

“I wanted to send my heartfelt thanks to all of you.
My experience at Sono Bello was far better than I would have ever dreamed. From my first consultation; to pre-op, surgery and then follow-up, everyone has made me feel comfortable and like a friend and not a patient.
To the staff: you are remarkable and are the reason that everyone should have as wonderful an experience as I have had. You take that extra time and care to make people feel at ease.
To Dr. B: Thank you, thank you for the wonderful work you have done. I have seen amazing results so far. I am down to 159 which when I came in I was 175. I have gone from a size 12 to a size 8 (M) already. My most troubles area is 1/2 of the mass size it had been and continues to shrink. I have followed some of your no to low carb/no processed sugars/high protein diet advice and already can feel a major difference. I still continue to work out 4 days a week which is killing me but working out gives me energy. It is helping to contour my troubles area's and makes me feel healthy. I am starting to gain muscle back again so I know my weight loss will be a bit slower but I don't just want to be lighter I want to be tone.
I look forward to my six month follow up and hope my results are even better.
With Gratitude!”

“Am pleased with the results of work completed at Sono Bello in Portland, OR. It's been a year now and, for me, it has taken the full year to fully experience the result. Early after the procedure I felt more energetic (thus, became more active)--about 2 months stage.
Did experience swelling for some time. I made the mistake of applying only cold compresses to the area and so slowed down my own progress. One is suppose to apply "cold compresses" at certain times and "warm compresses" at other times. If one applies only "cold", blood circulation is slowed and causes knotting in the area and pain.
So, pay very close attention to instructions regarding this process, it may speed up the results you'll eventually experience.
Dr. Randall Volk was very professional and, when preparing for the procedure, doesn't just draw marks on one's body to show where he'll make the changes, he provides a physical as well, checking for internal organ issues and hernias to ensure the issue is a "fat" issue and not something else. In other words, these physicians are "real MDs", tending to the whole person, not just the area of fat one wants removed.
Yes, I would recommend this professional services to others. Currently, I am encouraging my sister-in-law to consider Sono Bello in Portland. She's in her early 50's and is struggling with her body image as she enters menopause, where the female body begin producing fat in order to stave off the loss of estrogen.
Many thanks to the staff at Sono Bellow and to Dr. Volk & his surgery staff.”

“I have started menopause and cannot for the life of me lose any of this stubborn fat around my mid-section, ick. Discouraged and feeling there was nothing I could do about it I found myself giving up and that was when I was told by two family members of Solo Bello and their great results from their liposuction. Armed with suspension I stepped out and made the call.
I met with Shab who is the Patient Care Consultant. She was upbeat, energetic, professional, confidant and beautiful in appearance apparel, and attitude.
This location was attractive, inviting and not the sterile, cold and medical environment I was expecting. We then discussed what could their staff do for me and how may they help me achieve my goals for a more confident and desirable self-image. We discussed the areas that I have never been happy with on my body. We continued until every concern over pricing, the desired contouring, each type of payment plans, which doctor would perform my surgery and his credentials were completely answered. When we completed our time together I left with an information packet holding all the agreed upon procedures, payment receipt and the pre surgery suggested medications.
The day of the surgery I was given a really well information form to sign which addressed, Pre, day and post procedure expectation. And lastly take pictures of my physic for the, oh-joy, ‘before’ image and in the near future be a much better ‘after’ shot.
Dr. Edmond A. Zingaro would be my physician so if you are not sure who to ask for most defiantly request him. He then took a marker and started address the areas of my figure and listened (yet again) me rattle on about my desired look. I could see through into the operating room and it looked just like a hospital would, clean, sterile, professional. I was given antibiotics and a mild relaxer for my nerves and a pain killer for the procedure along with an IV which I assumed was standard however it was not needed. Vera the nurse had a calming demur however she knew exactly what to do and proceeded throughout the room readying everything.
TriSculpt is the form of lazar used I believe and from all the testimonies it seems to be the best equipment with the least amount of pain with a bonus of a quicker recovery. He used a Local Awake Anesthesia and began conversing with me in light humorous banter. He then made all the necessary incisions for the first of the two series surgery, one to put in a solution to loosen the fat cells and then second to remove them (yippee). He asked me on more than one occasion how I was feeling and had an excellent bed side manner. I can’t recall the length of time I was in the operating room but could guess perhaps an hour and half. His only rule was “If you feel any discomfort you need to tell me.” There was a moment I squirmed from a twinge of pain and he immediately stopped and addressed the area with Lidicane (?). Between his easy manner, Vera’s readiness for everything he needed by constantly moving and replacing items was very comforting excellent doctor from start to finish.
Day 1 and 2, I did do a few things out of bed like written this, making meals, changed the sheets, showered – yes showering the very next day was wonderful.
If I could, I would schedule my inner and outer thunder thighs and upper arms with Dr. Zingaro then jump on any talk show and praise the impossible; ‘the exit that was my chub’ by Sono Bello.
I would highly recommend my family, friends, neighbors even the mailman to go to SonoBello for a procedure.
Don’t wait any longer and contact Shab at Sono Bello, ask for Dr. Zingaro and then sit back in a bathing suit with confidence. So amazing is my confidence now.
Thank you, Thank you, and Thank you!

NOW I can wear any top! I love my new freedom to pick any clingy top I have and not worry about how it looks from the back. I saw results in 3 days! The pain...I had it done on a Thurs afternoon and took my last pain pill on Sat. night. I continued with the tylenol for a few days and now take an Alleve once at night. Dr. Sharma did a great job and I really trusted him. He didn't let me down. All the gals in the office are so helpful and very nice.

I have the opportunity to wait for patients in this beautiful office with so many lovely amenities for family and friends, and I listen to how much everyone appreciates the warm atmosphere.

When their patients come out of surgery and it is our turn to assist I observe how well the entire team works together for the welfare of their patients.

I hope writting this is helpful... I had smartlipo at sonobello 3 weeks ago. First 2 days are painful but not that bad. I was back to work on day 3. During the first 2 weeks my swelling was going down. On week 3 I noticed very large and hard lumps. I started massaging and got a couple lynphatic drainages to help. My doctor said its normal and should go away with time, excercise and continuos massage. Lets hope its that way. My stomach doesnt look good right now, and I am a little discouraged..
Anybody want to provide some tips? Or share your experience? I would appreciate it!”
