“What a great experience. Dr. Desvigne and his staff are the best. I felt so comfortable and knew from the start that I was in excellent hands. Just had my second procedure and my husband loves the new me!!”

“From the moment my fiance and I walked in, the way we were both treated was amazing. I decided to book another procedure at the beginning of June and everything went perfectly. Dr Desvigne was my surgeon, (very funny and skilled). All of the staff here are so professional yet warm. They are attentive, kind, and very efficient. I felt that I was in the best hands immediately. I have never had this experience in any other professional medical office. I can only spread the word to every person I know. What a great experience. Lastly, my fiance is now my husband. He loves the results! I cannot wait for another procedure!

Several of the available methods and found Sono Bello my best choice. Making an appointment for my consult to having my first follow up appointment was easy and friendly. All of the staff were comforting and knowledgeable to all my questions. I have wonderful results and had minimal down time! Love love love the whole process! Thank you to all the staff !”

“SonoBello San Diego has hand picked the most caring and kind staff possible. When you walk in the door you are greeted by two ladies that make you feel comfortable from the moment they see you. My favorite part is that they addressed me by name before I had to tell them who I was. I honestly can't say enough about my surgical nurse Amanda. She knew I was nervous and took EXTRA special care to go slow and talk me through the process. Several times during my procedure she touched my hand and asked me how I was doing. It was like I had a friend there with me. Now let's talk about Dr. Guttikonda.... Best bed side manor in his profession. From the first time I met him, his honesty and care for me shined through. The day of the procedure he was very relaxed and even funny which helped so much. I'm only one week from surgery and can't believe my results. I wish I could personally thank him for bringing me back to myself! We went in to see Andrea 5 days after my procedure. She was knowledgeable and answered every question my husband and I threw at her. She took an hour with us to and treated me like she was treating a family member. VERY careful to answer all my questions and to make sure she took her time to explain everything and looked me over with a fine tooth comb. We left there with such a sense of comfort that I was healing well. I really truly can't say enough about the staff there. I hope someone lets them know to keep up the good work. GREAT PEOPLE!!”

“I’ve struggled with loosing weight every since I had my second child, I’ve dieted, worked out and to no avail my body stayed the same. I had been looking at Sonobello for quite sometime, having the courage to call and then changing my mind. I ended up deciding to move forward and I had the pleasure to talk to Kayla and she was amazing. She wasn’t pushy, she listened to my concerns she answered every question I had and believe me I had a lot. She was very patient with me, she informed me of all my options. Kayla scheduled me and now I was in the hands of Anna. I came in for my pre op and Anna introduced herself and informed me of the procedure, what I was going to have to do to prepare and what I was going to experience. I was scared but open minded. At the same appointment I met my doctor, Dr. Guttikonda, who was freaking amazing. Dr. G, was straight to the point, he made sure all of my questions and concerns were addressed. I wanted to change my mind and not do it but I asked myself why and I didn’t have no other reason but fear not knowing the unknown. One week till the procedure I decided not to think about it just do it. The day of the procedure was awesome, Anna and Dr. G made me feel so comfortable and at peace, I knew everything was going to be okay. Fast forward to my follow up, I saw Amanda; very passionate, informative and gentle. She’s also a Navy vet which is fabulous. My experience was definitely life changing and Dr. G and his staff made it all come together. If the business today had this team’s professionalism, pure passion and genuine care about their customers they would be successful all the way around the scope. Thank you Dr. G and to your team.

“I had my Trisculpt E/X done on 3/29/19. WOW! It's been 6 weeks and i am so completely happy with the way my figure is looking! There is one spot Dr. G.and I are not happy with but he said he will take care of that, waitingto see how things look. As each week passes I can see how good I'm healing and absolutely Love it! I can hardly believe the change in my body. As a result I am feeling so good about the choice I made for myself. For 30 yrs I carried that extra skin from giving birth to my son and now its gone! At 55 I wanted to feel and look my best and Sonobello has helped me to do exactly that. I also believe I had the best doctor ever! Dr. Guttikonda in my opinion is the best. He makes one feel safe and secure with the entire procedure. I was really nervous about doing this but he reassured me I would be ok all the way through the process. I cannot thank him enough. I also had a great nurse, Natasha! She has a great personality and also helped me feel safe and secure about my decision to do the procedure. The entire staff at Sonobello are very welcoming and make sure to take care of anything I might have needed before, during, and after! I am so very happy that I chose Sonobello! I would totally recommend them! It is very important to follow the instructions before and after your procedure in order to get the best results and benefits from it. My healing has been great! It's worth every penny! If I had to do it all over again I would totally choose Sonobello! Best decision ever! I would chose Dr. G. again! I have to feel I can trust my doctor and I with Dr. G I felt exactly that! Thank you Sonobello!”

“This is my follow up review from the initial consultation. I went for it. I am thrilled with the results and I am still a little swollen. The team start to finish was amazing-Dr. Handler and his nurse were top notch and so caring. I urge anyone to do this for yourself, stop thinking about it and DO IT! You won't regret it- everyone is different and I had that stubborn excess on my thigh and my knees! it's gone, now when I am at the gym, I know the hard work I am giving is FINALLY visible. I have referred three people already simply because it is so worth it!”

The nurses attended to my needs, the follow up call by the doctor after surgery was appreciated, and the receptionist was always attentive and made sure that my appointments were scheduled and my parking was validated. I am going into my third week of recovery and I feel great. Most of the swelling has gone down and the bruises are all but gone. It's exciting to know that my results are sill not complete and that the areas that bothered me so much will vanish by summer. My surgery, combined with a new diet have already contributed to 7 pounds lost since I first weighed in at center. I'm excited to see where I will be at my next visit in May. I was very impressed with the staff and would highly recommend this them to anyone who was to consider a similar procedure.”

No follow up call or even a simple hello. My 1st procedure, I was excited and enjoyed the service I received from their staff.

“For the past few years I have been really down on myself because I had rolls on my back and no waist. I decided to come to Sonobello to see what they could do for me.

“My experience from the consultation to the follow-up appointment has been phenomenal. Having this particular procedure has been something I've been wanting to do for quite some time. I was initially seen by Kayla, and she couldn't have made me feel more comfortable so much so that I wasn't self-conscious when taking off my shirt, which I haven't done outside of my home in years. Natasha was also someone whom I had to take my shirt off for, and she made me feel awesome. I then was met by Dr. Guttikondra and his confidence and professionalism is probably what set me at ease and help make me commit to having this done.

During the procedure Dr. Guttikondra kept me informed and at ease during the entire procedure. His assistant was Joy, and she too has amazing before, during, and after the procedure. I have only just had the procedure done and the pain has been surprisingly minimal. The change in body composition is already obvious to me (I was stoked to be shown the actual fat removed after the procedure), but I know it will be even better after several weeks when the swelling has subsided.

I can't thank the Sono Bello in San Diego from top to bottom enough for all they have done so far. Looking forward to the 2019 Summer when I will be confident to take my shirt off at the beach for the first time in years!”

The nurses who saw me were very professional and were able to answer all of my questions. The Dr was down to earth and help out my mind at ease. Over all was a very pleasant experience and I would recommend to anyone interested. Thank you all. ”

After reading some of the other reviews, which I should have done before, I do agree it is pricey. So far, with my experience it has been worth it and I am hoping, a few weeks after my surgery (1 week today) that I will be able to to rate them 5 stars. Until my swelling goes down I won't results.

I had smartlipo on my upper abs, lower abs, hips, and neck and after just 2 weeks and thrilled with the results. I have already lost a significant of inches on my waist! I am so pleased! The recovery was also very minimal. Sonobello was so great about checking up on me throughout my recovery (I received a personal call from Dr. Guttikonda, multiple calls from nurses, emails with recovery tips, etc.) It was a great experience and I am so happy I decided to go ahead and do it!

“Excellent experience, always professional, positive, and friendly. The staff is super supportive. Sono Bello really knows me and my needs. I can trust the staff and the doctors and I feel comfortable enough as s client to ask them anything, about a procedure or treatment, past or present.
Currently, I am getting Venus Legacy treatments, a non-invasive skin improvement procedure. Venus treatments tend to various parts of the body to reduce cellulite and improve the appearance of the skin using warm radio waves massaged over an area with a warm hand held wand. . The treatment itself is very relaxing. It is much like a spa treatment.
Sono Bello offers something for everyone. I did not choose Sono Bello to make myself over. I chose Sono Bello to treat myself to what I deserve.”

I met with my doctor (Dr. G) the same day and he explained the entire procedure to me. He was nice and professional. He made no promises, but gave me clear information. I got 4 areas done (one free) and saw results immediately. I lost 8 pounds and several inches in my arms, waist & belly when I went in for my first check in 10 days after the procedure. And-I was still very swollen! Everyone was very nice and accommodating. Thank you to all the nurses and staff that helped make me feel comfortable throughout the whole experience.

“First, I am not a customer. I am writing a review on behalf of a friend that is a customer and where I was the ride for this person to and from a procedure. The staff seem to have forgotten how to talk to customers. My friend was not politely asked to fill out paperwork but was told to do so "I need you to fill this out". I was told to leave a room instead of being politely asked such as "sir, we request that you please wait in the waiting area".
It would be unfair to not acknowledge this is an unfortunate epidemic in our culture and sometimes I feel alone in demanding polite customer service. Nevertheless I demand it and ensure I get it. I'm not special, we all deserve to be treated like we matter and that we are not there for the service but that the service is there for us, right? Just like dinning; half of the experience is being served. This is how the tips are earned.... yup, I went there. Tips are earned and should only be expected if the service was at least adequate. Poor service means poor tip. If you work hard then you will be reciprocated with a well deserved tip; at least from me.
Back to the review: Once I brought to there attention that I don't take my orders from them and that if they asked me politely and say please I would happily comply. They did, and I did too. This review was written before the procedure occured, I will update it accordingly if things get better or worse.
Now more ranting.. My biggest irritation is when I pay for something with a card and the cashier says "sign this".... then I come unglued! When did this become okay? I have had many retail jobs before making a career in the armed forces and I never said that to a customer. It was always "please sign here and have a wonderful day". Okay, my rant is complete. Hope you enjoyed it!”

I talked to the doctor and LVN almost the entire time which helpful with the nerve and helped pass time. I felt as if the doctor was very thorough & i am excited to see the final results.

“I had Lipo done on my Abs, love handles and flanks. I am very unhappy with the results as well as with the follow up by Sono Bello. I have expressed that the results were minor, if any, multiple times with no one from Sono Bello following up. I finally spoke to someone who told me after my 6 month appointment I could be evaluated only if I was at the weight I was prior to the procedure. I gained 5 pounds since the procedure that I have not lost. I became so frustrated I went and got a second opinion which confirmed that only 1 of the 3 areas I paid for actually looks like something was done. It is apparent where Sono Bello stopped and is obvious the only area treated was my abs. I paid a lot of money and feel like I received nothing, not even good treatment as a patient. I would not recommend Sono Bello to anyone. They have done nothing to try and rectify this situation. It was a complete waste of $5500. They do not do what they advertise or charge you for.”

“This has been an incredible experience from my consultation through to recovering from my surgery a week ago. I had researched many options for years but after speaking to people who had cool sculpt (not enough); not wanting to have major liposuction surgery, I decided on micro laser Lipo @ Sonobello Phoenix.It was actually pretty painfree; I was awake under local anesthesia. It is truly a precision procedure; I felt relaxed throughout. This surgery has changed my life; I am not fully recovered to see my final results. I LOVE what I see so far! Very natural so no one ever has to know. The Sonobello team, from office staff to nurses to the surgeon are complete professionals; I encourage anyone who wants to de-bulk; have natural quick results to go to the Phoenix Sonobello team!

She has explained to me about the machine that is used and the therapeutic concept behind the Venous type of therapy. In the months that I have been her patient, any skin irregularities that she notices are discussed not only with me but she consults with other professionals regarding her concerns. She takes her responsibilities very seriously and has been very instructive on my behalf on how I should be taking care of my skin so that I can achieve maximum beneficial results from the therapy. I have definitely noticed a marked improvement of my skin tone and tightening and feel happy about the way I look.

“Do it right away!!!
Do it right away!!! Do not wait another day and miss out on life! I had my procedure done 11 weeks ago now. I wanted to wait to provide feedback because I wanted to be closer to my end results. I still have some time to go to see the final results but I am beyond words with the results I have thus far. I had the majority of my procedure done on my abdomen. I carried a very large portion of my weight in my mid section and the lower portion of my belly. For most of my life I lead a very healthy and active lifestyle but in the past 8 years that has not been the case. I took for granted being in shape and I gained a large amount of weight. I did not worry about it too much because I figured I could just work it off. I was wrong! After years of on and off healthy eating and hours of exercise my belly was not budging. I had accumulated so many fat cells in my belly that it was going to take years to work off (I have a background in nutrition as well). I then also experienced an injury that was going to limit my ability to do any type of cardio exercise. I decided to look into Sono Bello because I thought if I could have a portion of my belly removed that it could kick start more weight loss for me. I am so happy that I made the decision. I was assigned one of the most aggressive surgeon's they have and he was very realistic with me on what to expect. During the procedure he talked to me the entire time and made me feel very comfortable. The procedure itself was not tremendously painful but more some discomfort at times. My surgeon talked to me the entire time to make sure the pain level was something I could handle. My surgeon really made the entire procedure one I would do again in a heart beat! Immediately following the procedure they checked on me to make sure I was ok and I was able to go home quickly. I received a call that evening from my surgeon to follow up and the staff followed up with me for weeks after. The procedure has been very successful for me with the inches I have lost in my abdomen. It also has helped kick off a more permanent healthy lifestyle. It not only changes your appearance but it can change your entire mindset if you take full advantage of it. Prior to having the procedure a cheeseburger did not sound that bad when eating out but after the procedure and seeing instant results you just know that if you get the salad instead your results are going to continue to be that much better. This is how my procedure has changed my life. You want to make the right food choices all the time because of your new body and wanting to see more results. If you are even considering doing this, I highly recommend that you do not waste another day thinking about it and make today the day you change your life permanently! Choosing Sono Bello has had a life changing impact on me and my only regret is not doing it sooner!”

“The staff at Sonobello were the best.
The staff at Sonobello were the best. It wasn't all business. They my first visit so relaxing other than the a/c was out in the front office. Everybody was so helpful and answered any questions I had with no hesitation. Dr. Guttikonda was the best from pre-op to the actual day of the procedure. He was very honest straight forward on what my desired to my end state would be. Of course I am only 2 weeks post-op so all of my desired results are still in process. Although the pain is a little more than I expected almost 2 weeks out I am dealing with it. I especially have to thank (I can't remember her name) Dr. Guttikonda assistant the day of the surgery, she was so personable and pleasant. I was a bit nervous but but just the way she talks to you, she calms you down so fast and made me feel so at ease. Every Doctor's office needs nurses like her it would make everybody's visit much more pleasant. Looking forward to continued results as the next few weeks go on and to seeing Dr. Guttikonda come September 2nd. Thanks.”

“Waste of my money! Not happy with the results. The stars are only for the friendliness of the staff. It does not take a few days to recover, as they lead you to believe. I was in pain, discomfort & had difficulty sitting, walking and getting up for weeks after the procedure. It took months before I could comfortably shower or even wear any clothing at my waist line (like jeans and pants) because it hurt to touch my sides and upper & lower abs. I patiently waited the 6 mos they tell you it could take to see maximum results but still no improvement. I'm embarrassed for anyone to see me undressed including my partner. It really did a number on my already low self esteem. He only took out 5lbs when there was clearly at least 15 lbs that should have been removed from my stomach and waist. I look square with no curve at my waist. However, even though I am not happy with the results, I must say the staff & Dr are awesome and have wonderful customer service. He made me feel very comfortable at the preop appointment and the day of surgery. He is very personable with excellent bedside manner. The office is nice as well. I just am not happy with results. If I would've known he was only taking 5 lbs and I would look deformed I would have not done it! I could have dieted and excercised and lost that amount in 2 weeks for free! I'm very disappointed and wish I could get my money back because it didn't work for me. Make sure you do your research before electing to have this procedure done. You might be better off eating right and excercising than any Lipo. This is not a quick fix and not worth the pain.”

It was his no pressure, genuine, and professional manner in the way he explained everything. I felt like I could trust him which was an extremely important quality in a doctor. He made this experience very smooth and pleasant for me. I appreciated his call the day after my procedure to check on me. I feel so lucky to have had such a great doctor.”

I love what Sono Bello has done to my personality and my body! They have inspired me to get back to my everyday routine to get back in shape, with the help of the micro lipo surgery. The results are absolutely perfect already and I'm only two weeks out of the procedure. Just a few more weeks to finally see the rest of the results. Enough about my procedure, the staffing for Sono Bello was very friendly and made me feel comfortable. We did have a few issues with getting the approval from my neurologist but was figured out asap thank you to the receptionist. All in all I rate this a 10 on my scale.”

I have contemplated having this done for years but was unsure. I recently decided to go for it. I am in the process of my treatment and thus far I have been very satisfied with everyone on the staff. Love that the doc listens to reggae during the surgery it really helped with my nerves and thinking omg I am going to be awake during this. It's nothing like I thought it would be which is awesome. Now my worries or concerns are gone and I have no more anxiety. I am down 11lbs in the first week and we are not done yet. Recovery time a lot faster than I thought it would be.

Dr. Fink made sure that I had realist expectations and explained the whole procedure and made sure that I had all my questions answered. The day after surgery, I was pleasantly surprised to see very little bruising and swelling. Best of all, growing up I had always despised my crooked smile.

There is some discomfort which passes quickly and I was back to work with my compression garment on under my uniform and no one was the wiser. I had abdomen upper and lower and waist done.

“It has been a month since my Body Contour. Absolutely love it and wish I did it sooner. The fat around my stomach is completely gone. At first before the procedure, I was very apprehensive as of not knowing what to expect. My initial visit was with the sale consultant, Marin, very sweet lady, who detailed me the pricing. The second visit was with the nurse and Doctor S******, very professional with a great sense of humor, who thoroughly explained to me what was going take place and how. I asked all the questions I had and he answered all of them nicely. And finally, the third time was my surgery day. During the surgery, everything was calm. I had a wonderful experience. Not kidding! I had no pain, in fact, I was listening to Country Music and sang along. Doctor S****** and Nurse Dawn made me extremely comfortable. They were both extremely attentive during the procedure. Dr. S****** did a fantastic job. Now, the bruises are gone; lost the fat and just waiting for the bumps to go away for my complete healing. The whole team is just wonderful, from the front desk to everyone. That is my experience.”

“I had the Lifestyle Lift in early January. The end result - getting rid of "my Mother's jowls" - has made me so happy. I would tell prospective clients that there is definitely a period of "buyer's remorse" during the recovery stage, when there's swelling and bruising for a few days, but that passes quickly. Day 3 was when I looked in the mirror and almost cried. But 2 days later I was so happy as my face got it's contours back. I would have been ready to go back to work after one week with just minor bruising left, but had a little "glitch" and some subcutaneous bleeding in the right side of my neck. Dr Bonillas, Tao, his medical staff, and ALL the ladies at the front desk, were wonderful! I received so much care and concern and follow up. That did set me back about a week in recovering,. However, I can honestly say that at no time did I experience much pain. I took the pain meds for just 2 days. There was some discomfort from the bandaging, and the numbness around surgical areas takes getting used to. As does sleeping at an incline to minimize swelling. But I was back at work the second week, just kind of still wrapped up around my neck On January 30, my birthday, just 19 days after my procedure, I went out to lunch with friends and they were all amazed. Bruising and swelling all gone, and my face looking just as I had anticipated. My results get better all the time, as I approach 6 months post-op. Dr. Bonillas is an artist and the incisions that were hidden in my hairline and around my ears have left no visible scars. Almost all the numbness is gone and surgical areas "softened up" quickly. I would say Go For It to anyone contemplating this procedure!”

“I struggled with this decision for 2 years. This was not my first choice. I interviewed multiple offices and different procedures. I was tremendously nervous. First, I met Marin at my consultation. What an amazing help she was explaining to me the differences of procedures and then asked me about my goals. At my pre-op, I met Dr. Case and Belinda their RN. My mind was put to ease and I felt good about the decision I made. They took the time to discuss what I wanted, all of my concerns and give me the appropriate expectations. I was having my upper & lower abdomen, waist and inner thighs done. I am 11 days from having my tri-sculpting done on my abs and waist. I couldn't be more pleased. The lower "pouch" I had was no longer there when I took off my garment the next day. I know I have a long way to go yet in my healing but am so happy with the results thus far. I just had my inner thighs done 5 days ago. I can already see the difference. I am so thankful I put my trust in Sono Bello (Dr. Case, Belinda & Marin). Thank you so much for caring before, during and afterwards. Should I have a need for additional areas to be done, I will no longer hesitate. I will refer Sono Bello and Dr. Case to anyone who is looking to do Tri-Scultping Liposuction.”

“From the first day I walked in, the staff was very friendly and informative. I had planned on going to a few consultations before making a decision, but when they told me about the Assurance Policy I was confident in selecting Sono Bello and scheduled my liposuction surgery that same day. I have had plastic surgery in the past and my previous surgeon does not offer such a satisfaction guaranteed policy. This is what sold me from the start.
I had my upper arms, back bra roll and lower abdomen done back in June 2016. The doctor and the nurses were great. They made me feel very calm and comfortable on the day of the procedure. I was very pleased with the difference I saw immediately in my lower abdomen. Unfortunately, however, I did not see very much reduction in my upper arms and back. Before my 3 month follow up appointment, I received an email from Sono Bello asking me to describe my experience. I said that I was not very happy with my results and that same day I received a call from a manager assuring me that they would address all my concerns. Sono Bello's customer service is EXCEPTIONAL!
I had my upper arms and back bra roll revised by Dr. Park. Immediately, I felt very comfortable and confident that he would be able to fix my areas of concern. The nurse that I saw during my 3 month and 6 month follow up appointment was wonderful! She was very caring and really listened to my concerns.
The day of my revision surgery, I was very pleased about how thorough Dr. Park was in assessing and marking the areas of my upper arms and back. I was very happy that I had the same nurse, Tia, again. Tia is awesome! She has a way of making her patients feel very comfortable because surgery can be a very scary process. During the surgery, I felt very little pain. Dr. Park is an EXCELLENT surgeon.
I'm only at my one week post op and already I see a significant difference. Even my family members and friends have commented on how much better it looks! My upper body has always been a source of insecurity for me since I've gained weight. I'm very happy that I finally feel like it is proportionate with the rest of my body. I will definitely recommend Sono Bello, La Jolla to everyone I know!! No one should ever hesitate in selecting Sono Bello because of your great Assurance Policy!!”

“I had a wonderful experience from start to finish. My Patient Care Coordinator gave me a detailed explanation of what would happen and addressed any and all concerns/questions I had. The day of surgery I felt so confident and they made me feel very comfortable throughout the entire procedure. I felt no pain and was very relaxed. After the surgery they called to make sure that I was comfortable and that I was not having any pain/problems. The after care appointments have been just as complete. I have never felt like I made a mistake in doing this procedure. In fact, I am going to have another area done.”

“Went to sono bello for lipo suction. A month before I would have never imagined doing something like that until a month prior. The process was quick and the people were informative and helpful. I felt no pain during the procedure other than feeling a weird pain/tickling sensation in my ribs. I talked to the doctor and LVN almost the entire time which helpful with the nerve and helped pass time. I felt as if the doctor was very thorough & i am excited to see the final results.

“The most important thing to remember is that it is so worth your while to consult with Sonobello . Take that first step. I did... I had my extra skin removed above my eye. Totally painless. They are so personable and you feel like family every minute your there. You are welcomed on arrival by 2 ladies that greet you with a smile. You are treated as a friend not a number. Just be open with them. Maureen was the first contact... Like talking to a dear friend. Then I had Thao, warm, friendly, and hug-able. Dr. Bonillas put me at ease right away, and he is a very good surgeon, My eyes look great. I love going back for my followups. I'm so glad I did this for me.”

Was recommended to Dr. Park by a fellow nurse who had amazing results herself. Went in for a free consultation and was scheduled the next week with a customized plan for my new contoured body. After four children I was struggling to get back my pre baby body, but only after a couple of hours of minimally invasive entry points and no general anesthesia I now look AMAZING! Went back to work four days later and was rocking a smaller set of scrubs instantly, now all the nurses are now asking me what's my secret.”

“My experience at Sono Bello really was exceptional. The professionalism, courtesy, and most importantly the results. My doctor did such an excellent job of reshaping my abdomen and waist. His "aggressive" approach to removing fat and producing collagen was exactly what I needed for my loose fatty skin. The smooth sculpted shape I have now seemed impossible to me with just liposuction but now that they employ the laser technology along with it, my dreams for my results have come true. The ONLY reason why I did not give 5 stars is because in hindsight I wish I had been given a checklist to follow post-op. A step by step guide of when to start using the Arnica cream; when I could switch to Ibuprofen to reduce the swelling; etc. I found that my memory was not sufficient and I became confused.”

My husband encouraged me to visit Sonobello and I am so pleased with my liposuction results. My stomach is flat, and never has been. My results were almost instant, but once the initial swelling went down in the first week, I was so excited! I could actually see my abs after a few weeks and now at 5 week out, the swelling is very minimal and I am back to the gym! I actually look great in my clothes and my bikini, the scars are mostly invisible, and I have confidence that I never had before! The surgery was painless and the post op discomfort was minimal.

“Sono Bello gave me the confidence.
I had been considering body contouring for quite some time and had Sono Bello on my radar for well over a year and a half before I finally scheduled an appointment for a consultation. The team I met with was informative and friendly. There was no hype or pressure. I decided to proceed and scheduled my procedure (waist, hips, upper and lower abs). When I met Dr. Park I immediately liked his "bed side manner." He was easy to talk to and made sure he addressed my questions/concerns. Upon examining me, he mentioned that I really didn't need my hips addressed and that my back bra roll was something I should consider (it was!). I appreciated that he was looking out for me to have the best outcome possible. So, I changed my plan -- hips to back bra roll. I was nervous for the procedure, in general, but it went smoothly as the doctor and nurse ensured my comfort. It has been twelve days since my Tri-Sculpt procedure and I'm recovering well. Sure, swelling, minor bruising and the aches and pains of healing. I can't give a five star rating because it's too soon and my results will take a while to be fully complete. I'm practicing patience. Sono Bello gave me the confidence and trust I needed to make this important decision. Reading reviews like the one I'm providing now really helped. My advise? Be realistic about your expectations, talk to the staff and doctors at Sono Bello and decide for yourself.”

The day of the procedure, was there early, but waited till the time of the appointment. Taken back, IV place in and the procedure started. Was able to depart in the three-hour window they had scheduled. Two days on meds then the pain was manageable. Bruising started to show about one week after the procedure but was gone by the two-week mark.

“Total Professional.
Total Professional. The initial appointment covered cost and what to expect from the operation. The initial meeting with the Surgeon who would be performing the procedure was quick, to the point and out the door. The day of the procedure, was there early, but waited till the time of the appointment. Taken back, IV place in and the procedure started. Was able to depart in the three-hour window they had scheduled. Two days on meds then the pain was manageable. Bruising started to show about one week after the procedure but was gone by the two-week mark. Still a little tender at the two-week mark, but was able to get back on a bicycle and start exercising again. Noticeable difference in the waist. Very content and happy with the procedure.”

“For the last 4 years I have been trying to lose the tummy fat with exercise and diet. I gained it during Menopause, Now that I had the procedure at Sono Bella it is gone and I am back to my old self. I was very happy with the consultation and happy with my treatment plan. The staff was great, office clean and appointments on time. I would recommend Sono Bella to my friends or anyone that unwanted belly fat that they just can get rid of with exercise and diet. I am very happy with results and it has only been 3 weeks, I can not wait to see the final results after 6 months.”

“The entire process was professional. Each person I dealt with treated me with respect and caring. I got great instructions on what to do before and after the procedure and always knew there was someone I could talk to. I was a bit scared the morning of the procedure, knowing it was only local anesthesia, but with the pre-op medication and the numbing medication used, I think I slept through most of the surgery. First-week results are amazing but I can't wait to see myself in a couple of months.”

“I would 100% recommend others to have this same procedure I had which was Lipo laser of outer thighs and banana roll. I am completely satisfied with the results. I experienced no pain before or during the procedure. The Surgeon spoke to me during the entire procedure which kept me at ease. The nurse was wonderful she kept me informed of everything they were doing. After the procedure I had some local manageable pain. I returned to work the following day had zero down time which was nice. The surgeon is a well experienced surgeon which made me feel extremely comfortable. The staff was great and they always checked on me to make sure I was doing well. If you were to ask me if I would do it all over again, I would do it all over again and I would choose Sono Bello.”

“Hello....so after over a year of contemplating having something done...today I pulled the trigger! I am 31 years old and never had a weight issue until after the birth of my son. He is 5 years old and I literally still look pregnant....the weight didn't come off as easily as expected and I'm tired of being unhappy with how I look. I researched getting a mommy makeover, but frankly do not have the time available to take off work, or the support system to help take care of me and my son. So today I went to a consultation at SonoBello and scheduled my liposuction to take place April 15th. The staff was very nice and the facility is beautiful. I did not fell pressured or rushed, all my questions were answered. It is more expensive than I thought (I figured around 5,000 or so), but the before and after pictures of women who have similar body types to mine, is what really sold me. I scheduled my pre-op appointment, procedure and post-op appointment. I'm excited and nervous......I know I will get more nervous as we get closer, but for the time being I am just going to be happy dreaming about my soon-to-be new and improved body =)”

“I had a personal trainer around 2014 and 2015 and even though my body did get nice results, I was still not able to ged rid of the stubborn fat around my waist. I saw a commercial for Sono Bello and decided to pay them a visit at the San Diego location. The ladies there were amazing, I have never been to a place where they truly make you feel welcome from the first consultation to the nurses, receptionists and the doctor, they are all fantastic people. They made my decision to go through the Liposuction very easy for me. I had to have two separate surgeries because I almost did my whole body: my chin, my arms, stomach, waist, back and inner thighs. Both surgeries were great and I did not encounter too much pain just some discomfort. I am still in the recuperation process but I can already see the difference in my body and very excited to see the end results. They are worth every penny and I will recommend them to everybody who is in need of their services. One of the things that had me very impressed was their follow-up practices, the doctor calls you the day of surgery to see how you are doing (very nice touch), they also send you weekly emails letting you know what to do and what to expect on the days after surgery, they made this whole process incredible and I will always be grateful to this clinic for their professionalism and integrity. Dr. Park is, for a lack of a better word, AMAZING!!! He is so kind and helpful, I wish all doctors were like him.”

“I don't know why I waited so long to do this as the results are so much better than I could have hoped for. I am 53 and mid-life changes have added weight to my middle section and no amount of diet or exercise would affect this area. I was tired of having a spare tire around my middle and a muffin top over my pants. I was constantly having to disguise this area by dressing strategically. My procedure at Sono Bello corrected all of that. My body has not looked like this since my 20's, my belly is flat, my love handles are gone, my waist is defined and I feel so much better about myself!
I cannot say enough good things about the staff, Dr Chen and the entire process. From the consult with Laura to Clarissa and the other front desk ladies, to Shelly my pre and post care nurse, everything went exactly as they explained and they were so professional. They were so supportive and excited for me to have this done. My bruising and swelling has been very minimal and I am feeling pretty normal and it this is only day 10. Dr Chen called me the day after the procedure and has sent detailed support that is very timely and helpful.
I had a fantastic experience. I would highly recommend Sono Bello!”

“I am ecstatic with my results from my lipo thanks to Dr. Park!! He made sure I was comfortable, informed, and at ease at all times. At no point did I ever feel lost in this whole procedure. Dr. Park also sent me follow up emails with guidance and encouragement! My nurse sent me follow up emails and called me!! It was amazing. They know the expected problems and call before you have time to freak out about it!
I have been working out and dieting constantly for almost 3 years to lose the 10 lbs and 2 inches off of my waist needed to stay in the Navy. For whatever reason I could not get rid of the weight. I would lose fat and gain muscle making me heavier. I always had a couple inches of fluff around my midsection that wouldnt go away. I wasn't out of shape; I could run and do push ups and sit ups with ease!! But, I wasn't in shape either; I didn't have muscle definition and I still jiggled in some places. I was just big enough to fail the Navy BMI standards by half an inch. At the time if you failed 3 times they kicked you out.
Dr. Park took that fluff and stuff out of my midsection. Now I get told to put my abs away at pool parties because i'm making the guys self conscious!! How neat is that?! Everyone at work notices and compliments me randomly "wow!! You look really good! have you lost weight!?"
I will say, in regards to doing this while on sea duty- If you stand an armed watch or your daily work has you carrying heavy things or bending a lot you need to take AT LEAST 1 week of leave for this type of procedure. I didn't tell any one at my command about this procedure before hand because the pamphlets all say "back to work within 3-5 days" or something to that effect. Which is 100% true if you work at a desk. Wearing a gun belt or bending over constantly will bruise you up pretty bad and make you very uncomfortable. It will NOT damage or ruin your results though!”

“I almost had this procedure a year ago but after reading the reviews I changed my mind. Then a year later due to my husband's job relocation I was in the San Diego area and came across with great reviews from their SD Clinic. So I gave it a chance and made an appointment.
This is the best decision ever!!! I was a little worried about the fact that the initial consultation was not made with a doctor. But if you can deal with this, and get it that this is their system you will not regret it. You will meet with a surgeon later on.
My consultant was very knowledgeable, I chose a couple of areas to be treated and she rejected one area because she said I would not be happy with the results. This gave me some relief that it is not just about taking your money.
Dr. Chen was my surgeon. She was amazing! She makes you feel very comfortable and safe. It was almost no pain during the procedure, just the pinch of the needle for the anesthesia. The following 48 hours were with no pain and calls from Dr. Chen and her staff to monitor my recovery. The 3rd day there was some pain but nothing major, and the following days the pain was less and less. I was back to my regular activities on the 4th day.
I was also monitored pre procedure because my blood pressure was a little high, and I was so nervous!!! But they gave me a caffeine free diet to help me and it did indeed. My procedure was divided in two and the second time around my BP was good because I was not nervous or anxious anymore because I already knew there was almost no pain involved.
Everybody is extremely polite and professional, but Clarissa the receptionist and Shanae my nurse, were outstanding!!! It was if you had members of your own family taking care of you.
I really regret not doing it a year before. When I read again the bad reviews they were not even from my area, and I realize that a lot of reviews are from people that have not gone through the procedure. So my advice is to review your local clinic, and just read the reviews from people that have done it. It has been 14 days for me and although I am very sore, I can see the improvements in some areas.”

The nurses who took care of me --awesome. My consultant at Sono Bello was really nice, and last but not least --the receptionist --so sweet, and so friendly. I am really happy with the care I received at Sono Bello. I had my procedure last Thursday. I am still swollen as expected, but I am in no major pain at all.

I exercise regularly and have a fairly healthy diet, but those areas remained to be a problem. It always prevented me from wearing certain clothing, and for swimming, I would wear board shorts to camouflage my trouble areas, and a bikini top. I was never happy looking in the mirror and I would always grab onto the excess areas and say , "If I could just get rid of these things..." At 45, I decided it was time to do something about it. After extensive research, I decided on Sono Bello in San Diego. From my no-pressure consultation with Laura to my post procedure follow-up appointment, the staff at Sono Bello has been absolutely wonderful. The procedure itself was a breeze and my doctor, Dr. Chen, and nurse were incredible. I have never had a doctor call me in the evening (after a procedure) to make sure I'm doing OK. Not only did my doctor at Sono Bello call me, but I also received post procedure emails containing information on what to expect during that particular period of healing. Those emails were especially helpful! I am so pleased with my results and I must say, I look amazing! If you're reading this review and you're still trying to decide if this center is for you, look no further. I highly recommend Sono Bello. Did I mention how amazing I look? Amazing!! From Clarissa at the front desk, to Laura who gave my consultation, and all the nurses I had a pleasure of meeting, and of course my doctor, Dr. Chen, thank you all so much! The compassion and understanding you've shown me is truly appreciated in such a vulnerable time for me. I am so thankful I chose Sono Bello. Thank you all so much!!”

“I am only 2 weeks post op and feeling Fantastic! Honestly, I was very hesitant to get body contouring, but after years of trying to burn it off myself, I decided to take a leap of faith and give Sono Bella a try. I had a wonderful experience with the whole process and everyone was nice and very professional. Dr Park has a lovely bedside manner, and at this point which is still early, I believe he did a great job. I do feel that I should of had a consult with a physician prior to final deposit, with option to back out. This was a bit odd to me. Overall a great experience, I appreciate all the phone calls and emails with what to expect. That is a nice special touch. I can't wait to see how I look in a few more weeks!”

“I am a 52-year old woman. Medically diagnosed as obese. I had two rolls of big unattractive bellies. One of my concerns was the excessive skin after the procedure, which turned out to be a non-factor. I did my homework and went to other places for the free consultations--not impressed and kinda offended by some of the other places. I chose Sono Bello for several reasons. First of all, the facility is aesthetically soothing, clean, modern and topped off with a professional and friendly reception staff. Second of all, Laura, my consultant. The consultation with her is the number one reason why I chose Sono Bello. She took the time to answer ALL my questions and concerns and explained different options. It was her follow-up phone call the next day that cinched Sono Bello. She was professional, courteous, knowledgeable and empathetic. Her approach was disarming and I didn't feel the "shame" that I felt during the appointments at the other facilities. Not only was the procedure itself explained, but payment options were also explained. The pre and post op material provided described my actual experience to a T! The information desensitized my fear It was reassuring to be able to reference the material to gauge my progress. There were no surprises. The follow-up emails accurately described what to expect at those stages of recovery. The follow-up phone calls were also reassuring. The service provided by Sono Bello does not end when you walk out the door! The entire staff was professional, friendly and courteous. My procedure was done by Dr. Park and I was impressed by his availability to answer ALL my questions! The entire experience was exceptional, topped only by my satisfaction of my results. I would describe my recovery as uncomfortable, not necessarily painful, but uncomfortable. I returned to work after three days. I was very realistic with my expectations and I am VERY happy with the results, my clothes fit MUCH better and my confidence is soaring. I recommend Sono Bello. Ask for Laura -- she's the best!”

“I called Sono Bello after contemplating liposuction for over 3 years. I had gained over 100 pounds over the past couple years and had been slowly losing that weight, but still, my body was not bouncing back quickly enough. I had gone to other centers and was never treated with respect or dignity. That all changed when I called Sono Bello. From the first phone consultation to the moment I met Doctor Handler, I knew I had made the right decision. Laura was so kind and so compassionate, she helped put me at ease and was gracious and knowledgeable. The whole staff at this office is magnificent. It has been 17 days since my procedure; I am still a little swollen, but all of the bruising is gone, I am working out and I feel fabulous. Even more amazing, I can see my body changing - I know it's only a matter of weeks before I will be able to see the beautiful results! Thank you so much!!”

“I had my initial consultation January 9th. When I walked in I was greeted by a friendly staff in a sleek and inviting location. I decided to go forward with the procedure after my initial consultation. It was something I had been wanting to have done for the past few years. After doing lots of research on my procedure and multiple consultations at other practices, I was finally ready to go forward with the procedure. I knew right away I'd be in great hands at Sono Bello.
I had my procedure done by Dr. Park on January 9th. Procedure went exactly as promised. My recovery has been great. I did swell quite large the first week but was still able to get through my usual daily activities minus moderate-heavey exercise. Ive been able to return to work after my 1st week I requested off. Although I could of returned after day 3, I'm glad I took the extra days.
It's now been a little over 2 weeks since I had my procedure done and my swelling has gone down tremendously. Once the initial shock of the swelling went down and started noticing the difference, my whole confidence has risen tremendously. I cannot wait for the final outcome. So excited!!

“Diana H.
I want to thank the staff a Sono Bello for making this experience a great one. I'm 60 years old and thought maybe my age should keep me from doing this. I'm so glad I had the procedure done two separate times; I loved the result on the first 3 areas; I had 3 more done. My BMI was around 24, so it was the areas that I just couldn't work off. I look better than I did at 30...
I work with infants; so I didn't feel ready to go back to work for a week. I would say it was uncomfortable but not painful the next day. I had the procedures done in April and again in July. Dr. Jackson took care of me both times and I thank him.
My recommendation is to have a consultation, ask all the questions you need, and decide if it's for you. I'm so happy I did it.”

“I have had a great experience with Sonobello. I was thinking that after my procedure, I would be draining out of my incisions for at least 2-3 days due to my BMI being over 36. That was not the case... It only lasted the first 24 hours. Also, the next day, even though I was sore, I was able to walk around as the doctors and nurses instructed. By day 2, I felt good enough to get out of the house and return back to work. Everyone from Clarissa at the front desk, to Laura who did my initial consultation, to Dr. Chen, LVN-Christine and LVN-Sherry were AWESOME! They explained everything to me and I had no questions. Who would have thought that I would have received a follow up call from the doctor on the Wednesday night before Thanksgiving so that Dr. Chen could make sure I was recuperating without any problems. What an AWESOME Team! My results are coming right along and I am pleasantly surprised with the overall outcome!”

I will tell you I was nervous about the whole experience can't tell you how nervous I was just walking into the door. Let's not even talk about the doubts I had bouncing around in my head. I can tell you this my experience has been absolutely top-notch. All my questions and concerns were answered. I truly felt like it was a team rather than me as an individual tackling a problem on my own. So if your teetering on the line about Body Contouring or not sure who to go with give them a call you will not regret it. I am amazed at the results that I have in such a short amount of time really excited about my final outcome 2 to 6 mos from now!!

“Since day one at Sono Bello, my experience has been phenomenal! I was actually a little apprehensive at first because the reviews were so good. But after my experience over the past four months, I realized it they were accurately reflecting the high quality of service offered by Sono Bello, La Jolla.
I would have considered myself to be in average shape when I had my consultation. My procedure was for my stomach and love handles, areas that I never seemed to be able to get rid of through diet and exercise. Because of this, I thought that I wasn’t part of the normal clientele and that it could be an awkward experience. However, I never felt uncomfortable and was surprised to learn that it was pretty common for them to have clients in a similar situation. My questions and concerns were always answered quickly and honestly.
The procedure itself went by pretty quickly. I never had any pain or problems throughout. Recovery was uncomplicated as well. I would say that I felt more uncomfortable than anything else for the first couple weeks (Itchy, tingling, numbness).
Today, I have a six pack and am in the best shape of my life. I look and feel great! The results are much better that what I expected and highly recommend Sono Bello to anyone looking to improve themselves!

One thing that has been extremely helpful are the follow up emails that describe what I should be feeling which is very close to what is actually happening which tells me the staff knows what they are talking about.

My experience started with miss Clarissa holding the door open for me from the garage not knowing i was a potential client to welcoming me in their very zen like feel waiting room it helped with the process of nerves. To then having the gorgeous Kim educating me on the procedure and healing process during my consultation. Speaking with Kim excited me to get the ball rolling and so we did with paperwork neverending the staff was able to seal the deal. On surgery day nurse Christine and Dr Jackson made the experience complete not only with getting through the process but by giving me a sense of trust and comfort easing my nerves.

“Google: Doctor Oz can you change your body shape.
As the Dr. says (spoiler alert) you cannot. If you are a square, and lose weight, you will be a smaller square. Apple, pear or any other fruit, same thing.
Spot reduction is also known to not work. The only thing that changes your shape other than lipo or other procedures is dieting until you are underweight and all your fat stores are used up. This is not healthy, and is very hard to maintain. And as you age, the super-thin look makes you look much older than you are.
With that said, it is a personal choice to accept your body the way it is or go about changing it. I chose to change it.
Now my review:
I was Googling Smartlipo options and I found Sono Bello. I was able to chat back and forth with a rep and they asked me questions to see if I would be a good candidate for SL, and I made an appointment. I was examined by the doctor on the spot since he had a few minutes in between patients and he was very encouraging about what he thought he could do for me. I have experienced many issues that have taken a real toll on my waist and weight over the years, and he was understanding about that. I explained all prior major surgeries and any health concerns (they are very thorough about clearing you for surgery) and we went ahead and booked my procedure. They helped me through every step of the process and sent emails that explained each stage and what you can do before and after your surgery to make the process as painless and convenient as possible. The surgery itself had its moments that were less than comfortable, but I had 3200 of fat removed from my abdomen, bra roll and chin, so a larger than typical amount… but every bit worth it. I was off the pain meds after two days.
Directly after the surgery I could see a difference, and by the time I returned to work it was obvious enough for people to ask what I did! Which is good since I was looking for a real difference to those problem areas. I am 100% satisfied with my results and 110% satisfied with Dr. Flynn and his staff. They are very kind and encouraging all along the way. Just a top notch experience.
Thank you Sono Bello team!!

…… So now that I’ve had the fat removed… what now?

Dr. Flynn is very vocal about exercise and a healthy diet after your procedure. The staff also encourages exercise every chance they get and are all looking very healthy which is impressive and motivating. So I’m on that treadmill and you should do the same post op.”

“I wish I would have done it sooner! My overall experience and results with Sono Bello and staff was awesome!
I had stomach (upper and lower), waist and hip laser lipolysis performed. I had been dieting and consistently exercising for years and finally reached a point where exercise and diet just weren't working any longer. I went for the procedure last week , it was very easy and Comfortable procedure with least amount of pain. I am already feeling good about my self and its just a week. Doctor said i will start seeing results by the end of second week .
Doctor and staff was so caring and friendly . i just loved the experience . They make you feel so special and make you believe in your dreams.
I am looking forward to the get skin tightening procedure and results that are forthcoming!”
