“Sonobello has been so far a gr8 experience for me. Im 59, weight 184 comin in to this program, for stomach, sides, and back and now I weight 167. My goal is 155, and I believe with right attitude, staying positive, don’t expect them to give u ur dream idea weight. It’s a process, with u doing ur part- changing ur diet, exercise, and a good attitude. Plz, plz, plz don’t expect it to change overnight, it may take a few more times( if needed); but be happy in making those changes in ur life to make u feel good about yourself.
I’ve seen people who come to sonobello and they are very overweight expecting the business to take all that weight off them, it doesn’t work that way. I think, that if I had known that I needed to lose more weight before I went to sonobello, I’d be at my 155 goal by now. One of my best moment was when after the procedure I looked at my stomach and I didn’t have that flap hanging down on my stomach anymore!!
I could touch my stomach from the top and go straight down with my hand!! Lol it may some crazy; but I felt awesome. I hope I have given someone some hope to try sonobello. Yes I was scared, freaking out; but this was on my bucket list. Lol
One more thing, the procedure is like getting a tattoo inside of u with cat paws !!! Lmfao!!!
But that’s my opinion🥴

“This is my first time getting any kind of lipo done. I had the best experience with the entire staff. I was so hesitant and nervous, they made me feel so comfortable and they listened to all my questions and concerns. The way I was treated was with genuine concern for me. Even after my surgery and the next day,my doctor called to make sure that I was doing alright. I felt so welcoming there and I would definitely recommend Sono Bello, Tacoma location to everyone!To anyone that is even interested in this procedure, just call and make a consultation, trust me, you'll be glad that you did!”
Marissa on Yellow Pages
“I recently completed my second procedure with SONO BELLO - Tacoma and I could not be happier with the results. Had my first round of Lipo done on March 10 and the second session on March 31. The coaching and communication from the team was excellent. They gave me a realistic expectation of the results then exceeded the expected level of service. It was well worth the investment and I would do it all over again in a New York minute. I feel like my old self again. The only question I ask myself over and over is why in the world did I wait so long to do this? If you are considering a procedure you need to work with this team for sure. They are the best at what they do!”

“I am blown away with Sono Bello. I was so nervious about going in, they did everything to make me feel relaxed and comfortable. The procedure went off without a hitch. My doctor Mr. Parington was incredible. I have had more doctors to keep me healthy than most, but Dr. Parington was by far the most caring caregiver I have EVER HAD. The staff so very friendly and knowledable. The after care emails again are out of this world.
I feel great and in just 2 weeks I look incredible.
THANK YOU SONO BELLO and DR. PARINGTON”

“My experience with Sono Bello and Dr. Potyondy was excellent. He was professional and genuine. I felt at ease asking anything about the areas I wanted to improve (bra roll, hips, waist, inner and outer thigh). All the staff was open to my questions and made me feel like I was a priority. The communication on what to expect was detailed and very informative, repeated verbally and in writing. I appreciated having the phone number for the Dr. after the procedure and I also thought it was great to get emails on what to expect at 24 and 48 hours as well as one week after the procedure.
At my first follow-up appointment I was relieved to know everything I was experiencing was normal and I was actually feeling well enough that I wanted to start running but the staff was quick to deter from high impact exercise too quickly and explained what the consequences would be. I want great results so it was important for me to hear that it was okay to keep things low impact for a quicker recovery and to really not step on that scale and expect actual results immediately but to wait the 6 mths and give my body the time to heal properly.
The entire experience with all the Tacoma staff was excellent and I would recommend Sono Bello to my friends in the future.”

“I went in to see if Sono Bello was right for me. 3 years ago, I lost 70-80 pounds in less than a year while for the last year and a half I have been dealing with loose skin around my abdomen. The loose skin that will not disappear is a constant reminder that despite the weight I lost that my image is still not what I want it to be. I have been told that the bulge around my abdomen was excess skin from personal trainers, but I wanted a second opinion because I never truly believed them.
I had my free consultation with Melody Sonnenberg (patient care consultant) and explained my situation to her and she told me that at Sono Bello their procedures are used to remove stubborn fat. She told me that she would look at my problem area and tell me if it was excess skin or belly fat. After my evaluation she told me that it was excess skin based on how it felt to her and I would not be an ideal candidate for Sono Bello. She said that I would benefit from a tummy tuck which they do not perform. She gave me a list of plastic surgeons from Bellevue that she trusts based on her experiences.
I went to the Sono Bello in Tacoma instead of the one in Bellevue where I live due to the huge discrepancy in customer reviews. I can see why the Tacoma offices are rated higher based on a consultant telling me that I an not an ideal candidate for their services and that they can not help me based on my goals and I would unfortunately (for them) have to take my money elsewhere.”

“My experience at Sono bello in Tacoma WA with Melody, has been a breeze! When I first scheduled the appointment for the consultation I was a little nervious and skeptical about the the whole process, but as soon as I arrived, I was welcomed by the receptionist and the consultant. Melody was very friendly and I was impressed with the readiness to answer my questions, making me feel comfortable and at ease. She was very thorough about the procedure that i was interested in; tri sculp, and she was very knowledgable, gave me professional and personal answers, which were a plus. Most important, I did not feel pressure or rushed to make any quick decisions and I left the place with a high impression. Soon after, I reached Melody again to schedule the procedure, and she has been excellent with helping me plan this. I have been able to reach her multiple times and I could not be happier :)
I would definitely recommend this place to anyone thinking about doing this. I'm so excited I'm finally gonna get the results I've wanted for so long! In just two more weeks!!”

“Very professional, great service. They all make you feel at home. Caring. Very happy with results so far. I'm a month in to it. Guys with man-boobs....this is the way to go. I do weight training and still do. Couldn't get rid of 'em. They are gone and I'm much happier. Highly recommend these folks. Remember you have to do your part after the Doc does his. You can't sit on your duff and expect the results you want. Listen to the advice and go for it.”

“I was very nervous and a little apprehensive about having a procedure done at Sono Bello, especially being a male. However, every step of the way, the staff was very friendly and professional. Melody answered every question I had. I did not feel pressured or like I was being sold something I didn't want. In fact, it was just the opposite. The staff listened to my desired outcome and a plan was put in place to attain those outcomes.
Dr. Potyondy was very friendly, caring and understanding as to what I wanted. I had my abs, hips, love handles, inner thighs, and man-boobs done. During the procedure, Monica and company made me comfortable while Dr. Potyondy worked his magic. It is still too early to see the final results since I am only 2 weeks out from my procedure. I am happy with what I am seeing so far, even with the swelling.
Now it is up to me to continue the process. I really enjoy my cardio workouts at the gym and was glad that I could resume those after a couple of days. I can't wait to begin working with my trainer on my core again, but that’s not for a few more weeks. I am so glad I went to Sono Bello. I would definitely recommend Sono Bello. Thank you. My wife and I are excited to see the final results as they develop over time.”

“I had my first procedure done Sept 9,2013 and so far I am happy with the results I am seeing. The staff has been very helpful and courteous from day one. I was awake and relaxed during the entire procedure and felt no anxiety at all. I was vary happy that the Dr. called me the next day to see how I was doing and if I needed anything.
After my one week visit I received a phone call from Melody to see how I was doing and feeling also.
So far I have been happy with my experience and look forward to my next procedure on the 23rd.”

“That's what I have been asking myself for a little over 6 months now. I had my abs, and thighs done. I like my curves. To me they are who I am. What I didn't like was the lumps and bumps and extras in my curves. I was dieting and exercising with little to no visible success and getting frustrated. Thanks to Dr. Potyondy and the amazing staff at Sono Bello, not only did I achieve amazing results but my workouts yielded better results and I can and do actually love my curves. It took me 3 years from the time I first considered Sono Bello until I had my contouring and I keep asking why did I wait?”
erica36 on Yellow Pages
“As a man it is hard to admit defeat. I have struggled with weight my whole life. Mostly that spare tire area that never went away. The staff at Sono Bello helped me see what could be. In one week I had my hips, waist, upper and lower abs done. I am only 2 1/2 into the healing process and feeling great so far about the results. I was surprised to get a actual phone call from the doctor asking how I was doing. I am pleased with Sono Bello and the info I keep getting from them. I would recommend them to people who need help feeling better about their bodies.”

“I wanted to look good for my daughters wedding but was completely unsure about the laser liposuction and body contouring, I called Melody and made my appointment. During my consultation she gave me feedback on what would and wouldn't work for me. Once I made the decision to go for it I met with Dr. Potyondy. He told me what to honestly expect from the procedure. Everything went so easy the day I had my procedure done. I even got a call fromt he Dr. to make sure everything was going OK once I got home. In 3 months I have gone from a size 12-14 to an 8. I love my new curves and cannot wait to see where the next 3 months take me. If you are considering this service I highly recommend you call and make an appointment. Everyone is so nice and they make you feel very comfortable.”

“Trust the 5 Star reviews!
This is a rare instance when something that seems too good to be true actually is! The Tacoma Sonobello clinic met my every expectation and more. Dr. Sobrino and his staff were so informative and caring, even after the procedure. The calming atmosphere relaxes any jitters that sometimes accompany major decisions. Although I am still recuperating, I could not be happier with my results and the continuous after care from the staff! Hands down, no regrets!”

“I had my procedure done just a little over one week ago and I couldn t be happier with the entire process! From the moment I went for my first free consultation appointment until now, the entire staff has been welcoming, understanding and sensitive to my needs. I was extremely nervous the day I went for my pre op, but Wendy made me feel comfortable and made the process easy. Dr. Partington was my doctor and he also made the entire procedure comfortable for me. They talked to me during the procedure and informed me every step of the way as to what they were doing.
My pain level was minimal the first couple of days. The swelling is now going down and although my full results won t be noticeable for several months, I can already tell a huge difference in my waist line! The is the best thing I have ever done for myself and if I had to do it all over again? Absolutely, without a doubt, I would.
For anyone considering laser liposuction, I would highly recommend Sono Bello for your procedure!”
Francine on Yellow Pages
“I have to say that my body is shaping very nicely even though I indulged myself over the holidays! The Sono Bello team was so caring and courteous. Before my procedure, I was so nervous but the team treated me as if I was famous or something which made my nerves calm. I loved the fact that they allowed me to listen to my music as the medicine took affect. The follow up contact has been phenomenal! I've never had this much contact after other surgeries throughout the years which leads me to believe that this team really does care about my healing process, welfare, and emotional state after such extensive surgery. I felt like I was more than a patient; more like a part of their team lol! I look forward to having more procedures done, but only at Sono Bella!”

The procedure and the recovery have been exactly as they professionals at Sono Bello said they would be. The results so far have been what I expected which makes me feel so good about myself. I am inspired to work even harder on my exercise routine and on eating even healthier. I would recommend Sono Bello in Tacoma to anyone :)”

“After years of contemplating this procedure I finally went through with it on New Years Eve. I'm absolutely sure my choice to have Sono Bello do this procedure is the best decision I've made. From the very beginning Melody answered all of my questions and obtained the financing I needed to move forward. Dr. Potyondy was amazing before, during and after the procedure. I've had emails, text messages and phone calls from the staff making sure I'm recovering great, giving me advise and answering any questions. A first class team and I would recommend them to anyone and everyone considering this life changing decision.”

“First of all I would like to thank the wonderful staff at Sono Bello. The Tacoma office was beautiful and really gave me a warm feeling. Although, this was my first experience I was very nervous. I really did not know what to expect. Dr. Sobel did such a wonderful job I wish I had done this years ago. I had been working out, changing my diets, taking pills and eating health foods. I was on my last straw. I called and I had an appointment with in a week and the procedure was done the following week and its been a month now and I have seen the results. its been a great experience and recommended to any that has struggled like I have for years. THANK YOU SONO BELLO........................”

“I recently had my 6 month pre-op appointment and I couldnt be more happier with my results thus far. At first it is frustrating not to see instant results as soon as you get out of the procedure room, But I have come to understand that your body takes time to heal! The nurse at Sono Bello gave me copies of pre-op pics and 6 month post-op pics, I can definatly see the differenes. My stomach is flatter and my hips are more defined, no more muffin top! The nurse told me that my skin still has about 6-9 more months of shrinking so the results can only get better from here! Thank you Sono Bello!”

“I would like to thank everyone involved in my surgery, beginning with Melody who made me feel comfortable and secure enough to schedule the surgery in the first place. On the day of my surgery (yesterday) I couldn t have asked for a better experience. A special thank you to Dr. Potyondy and my nurse, Monyca, who were wonderful. I am writing this on the day after my surgery. As far as pain goes, the surgery itself was on par with a trip to the dentist. I took pain pills yesterday at bedtime and again at about 3am. It is now 10:30 and I have not needed any pain medication since 3am.
Update: I went back for my one week appointment where I met a new nurse, Kelly, who will now follow my recovery to the end. She was very friendly, but more important, she was extremely knowledgable and thorough.”

“After a horrible experience with the Bellevue, Wa consultant last year, I took a chance last week to visit the Tacoma facility for a consult. My experience was much different. Thanks to Melody for opening a new door for me! Kudos to the wonderful energy I felt from all of the nurses (Monica, Sandy & Kelly) and of course to Dr. Partington (like the part in your hair) as he introduces himself to you, for his enriching energy. I just attended my week follow up yesterday and my healing is on the way. Thank you everyone for your encouragement and for helping me a long this new journey!”

“IN ALL HONESTY...I was never able to wear a t-shirt by itself and feel comfortable. And believe me, I work out, and try to eat healthy. And just in one week, for the first time in my life I could. Even though the healing/shrinking process is not even close to completion, I am happier then I have ever been and ALL thanks to the combination of great effort from the staff at Sono Bello. In my head I imagined how great this turned out, but I did not realize just HOW GREAT!!! For someone who suffers from major anxiety, I did not expect this process to go so well. I read many reviews and was fully informed of how nice the staff is. However, the review do not do justice, nor do they emphasize the actual satisfaction I had with this office! I will start with the most wonderful Melody, who I actually cried in from of (from embarrassment of my body) she made me feel soooo comfortable during the consultation. She is super funny, and very welcoming. Her caring personality shows her compassion to the patients and she really tries to help!! No words to explain how wonderful she was and how happy I was when I left. I scheduled my appointment and did the procedure in 2 weeks from then. The rest of the staff was just AMAZING, I pay attention to every single little detail, because I have OCD and as I myself work in the health field, I am especially critical of customer service. The wonderful ladies made everything perfect! If felt good to pay the money because I knew what I was paying for was very well worth it!!!! I am truly, very grateful for how everyone took care of me!! ESPECIALLY I am grateful for Dr. Potyondy If and when I go back for other procedures, I would do them only in one condition, that Dr. Potyondy would be the surgeon. I was more then happy, I felt very cared about and I think he does amazing work!!!!! PLEASE DONT HESITATE! just try the consult, you have nothing to lose and it does not cost anything. But, so worth the try to end you unhappy lifestyle.”

“Excellent service. It's been three weeks since I have had my procedure and I feel GREAT! I am still a little sore and swollen but I can see the difference already! Not that big of a difference but My body is CONTOURING!!!! I am excited to see the final results in 6 moths. The staff at Sono Bello is amazing! Everyone made me feel comfortable and relaxed. There was turning back after that! Professional, friendly and excellent service all around!”
Carolyn on Yellow Pages
“Great service!!! I wasn't very sure that I was willing to go to Sono Bello because they didn't have what I wanted, but when I went there I got so much more than what I expected. Two senior Patient Care Consultants, Melody and Jenna were so kind and so helpful to me. They make me feel so comfortable about myself and what I want to get done. The employees there could have told me straight up to go somewhere else, but they took the time to talk to me, get to know me and break down important information that I needed to know about the procedure that I want to get done. I am so happy that I went in to talk with them. I would highly recommend anybody who wants something done to go to Sono Bello. :)”

“I had a very unpleasant experience at this clinic. I was not seen by a doctor I was seen by a patient coordinator. I went in looking to have some stubborn fat taken off my waste basically. Every consultation I went to quoted it as 2 areas (entire abdomen, and love handles) but because of the way Sono Bello charges this turned into about 5 areas because they do upper abdomen, lower abdomen, love handles is one and flanks is another. Then I was told in order to achieve natural results I must also do my hips and outer thighs I was never told this anywhere else. I do not mind my hips/outer thighs. I was then quoted around $9,000 for the procedure and told that since I needed so much done it would have to be done in 2 surgeries. I then asked why I couldn't get the $1249 per area price. She said because of my weight and height she calculated me at 26% percent body fat and you must be under 22% to get the price. I am in the Army and have to pass fitness standards, I never pass weight because I weight 165, this is because I lift, run, and keep in great physical shape. I was looking for lipo to get my stubborn baby fat. I said if a medical doctor measured me she would see that I am between 18-21% body fat and that he calculation was incorrect. I left there feeling like a major hog and really discouraged.”

“I am a very active person; I do cardio 5-7 days a week, 1.5-2 hours a day, I eat right, do all the right things to lose the fat that has gathered on my back (bra rolls), hips and waist but nothing seemed to work. I finally gave in and looked to Sono Bello for help. I was excited because I saw online that they were having a special for $1,249 per area when you get three of more areas done; however, since my BMI was 28, the price was a little higher. Melody, who was doing my consult was amazing and was able to work out a great deal with me. I scheduled my appointment and they were able to get me exactly when I needed/wanted it to be done, they are extremely flexible and understanding. I was so scared and excited. I read so many reviews online that talked about the pain which worried me (seeing as I have had a tummy tuck and three kids, I am able to handle pain).
When I went in for my pre-op I fell in love with Sandie, my nurse, and Doctor Partington. Four days later, it was time for my procedure. I was even more nervous than before. Sandie greeted me with a huge smile, telling me they are going to take great care of me and make the procedure fun and boy did she. Her and the doctor were amazing. The pain level was nothing like I thought it was going to be. The worst part was when he was lipo’ing right under my armpit, but when Sandie noticed I was making a pain face, she handed me stress balls and told me to squeeze, that worked! The procedure only took an hour. There was no pain after because I was so numb, I took one vicodin that night and only needed OTC pain meds after. My pain level the next day wasn’t high at all, I was more sore then anything. I slept most of the day anyways, returned to work Saturday (my procedure was on Thursday). The day after my procedure Doctor Partington, Nurse Sandie, Melody, Genevieve (the receptionist) all called to check in with me. I got emails 24-48 hours after with recovery tips, then again at 1 week after.
I took my garment off after 48 hours to shower and noticed I had no back fat, I have had back fat for as long as I could remember, I literally almost cried. You can see a huge difference already. When I went in for my 1 week post op appointment Sandie came in to see how I was doing and she was shocked by how good I looked with as swollen as I was still. She gave me a hug and high fived me, you could tell she was genuinely happy for me! I had no back fat, no muffin top; I have the shape I have always wanted. I am so happy with my results and it has only been 11 days! I cannot wait to see what my results will be at the 3 and 6 month marks!! I highly recommend Sono Bello in Tacoma! Thank you to all the staff that have made this experience an incredible one!!”

“Had great results, Tacoma and Dr Potyondy comes highly recommended. Surgery was easy, had hips waist , abs and outer thighs done. Was up and on my way home just fine, even made dinner that night,.
Was sore and swollen the next day, felt way better than I thought I would. Had surgery on Tues and was back to work Fi . ( I am a flight attendant and did just fine)
Week 1 check up, they said I looked as if I had been healing for a month and had lost 3 pounds! Hard to believe with all that fluid in me!
The results were immediate , flat stomach and thighs, no love handles .
Muscles are sore and bruising only on my thighs.
Week 2 today, still a little sore, but still drinking tons of water and doing everything I'm told. Results just keep getting better.
Get to start massaging the areas today to keep scar tissue from building up. Yes you will have lumps. Can't be avoided. Massage them out!
I did my research, this was a great option for me and have had no surprises or misconceptions on what lipo can be used for. I realize it is going to be up to me to keep it off. Duh.
This clinic and staff was amazing . I have already refered other there . Lisa”

“The Tacoma Sonobello is a top plastic surgery center in town; I've had personal experiences (myself and family) with three other plastic offices in the area, and this one takes top award for professionalism, follow up, accessibility of the doc and nurses, before and after surgery. From the first consult with melody, to the two nurses (Marianne and Monica), to Dr. Nees, I could not be happier and felt and still feel very well cared for and as if my well being is really important to them. Highly recommended, and I am looking SO good after 10 days.”

“It has been 2 months since I had my consult with Melody. Going in to the consult I thought I would leave feeling bigger and it being a waste of time. I was wrong. I went in feeling depression and upset about the way I look and left ready for a change. Melody worked so hard to get me a loan I could afford and scheduled my surgery for the very next Saturday. I find my self happy and smiling. I use to cutyself out of pictures and now I can't wait to take family photos. I am the woman I have always wanted to be. My children see the energy I have and now I finally leave the house again not afraid of the way o feel or look. I couldn't thank Sono Bello enough. Dr. Neese truly sculptedy outside to match the inside. Thank you so much!!!”

I am so happy that I went to Sonobello. The staff is great too, nursing care, and admin. I would recommend Sonobello to anyone thinking about liposuction.”

“I have to admit I was pretty skeptical about having body contouring done have read contradicting reviews, some reviews were down right ugly, stating that their body did not change, it was a waste of money, it was painful by the time I got done reading some of those reviews I was horrified, but My experience at Sono Bello in Tacoma was awesome all the staff were great everyone from the front desk on. Genevieve was on shift and greeted me when I went in for my consultation, she was so sweet and helpful she has a way to put you at ease, Melody is a “rock star” she works her magic and makes things happen, Sade’ was great very informative, all the staff made me feel welcomed. Dr. Nees was excellent he walked me through all the steps so that I could understand my procedure. Staff were always available to answer ALL my questions big or small, they never made me feel like a bother. Dr. Nees even called to check up on me a week after my procedure. I had my first procedure done on November 22nd, 2014 I had my abdomen (upper/lower), waist and hips done, and I go in on the 10th of December to have my “ back bra Roll” and arms done. Day 1# you could see results forming, the contouring has already given me a confidence boast and I’m nowhere near complete. I can’t wait to see the finish product.

Dr. Sobrino was very professional and also very personable. He made me feel comfortable during the procedure and also very well informed for the days and weeks to come. I would not hesitate to do it again. Sono Bello has given my my body and my confidence back.”

Stefany on Yellow Pages
“I just want you to know I appreciate you all a lot at sonno bello I know beauty hurts but this was all worth it. Instant results coming straight off the operation table. I can't wait to see how my 1st week follow up goes when I meet with my favorite asst. Melody but also I love to give credit where it is due can't leave my nurses out Shaday and Monica they keep me laughing and it helped me not think about the surgical procedure. Great people and made me feel very comfortable. Now last but not least the man who made this all possible my favorite experienced and dedicated doctor DR. Nees he is so AMAZING he worked so hard to get me great results I love him so much for it. I'm looking forward to seeing him again. This team of professionals have really made my dream come. You all are a blessing. For me your group name is TEAM BOOM. This stands for:
B-best at what you do O-over achievers O-outstanding people inside and out M-motivation that make people dreams and life change for the positive”
Tavia on Yellow Pages
“Everyone at SB is so nice, friendly and most of all compassionate about the entire process. And let me tell you, it wasn't easy. But Melody was so helpful through out the entire 4 months or so it took for me to get the finances straighten out.
Dr. Marten was extremely nice and professional and has the BEST bedside manner. I felt totally safe and taken care of through out the procedure. Which was very painless. Minor bruising and soreness but nothing major. I highly recommend this team, I'll be going back in the future :-)”
Kristen on Yellow Pages
“It's been 5 months since my body contouring and I can say with all honesty I'm so very glad I did it. Every day I'm grateful for the procedure. i have always been so self conscious of my tummy. I felt it was the first thing people noticed. The fact that nobody notices my tummy is the best compliment I could have. I have NO REGRETS! Recovery was a breeze. I was back to work in three days. The staff was outstanding. My dr was incredible and I can't wait to get my thighs done next!!!!! If youve been thinking about...DO IT! You will ask yourself" why did I wait so long?"
I love my new me. :)”
Holly on Yellow Pages
“I had an issue at 8am the next day after my procedure and was expected to tell non-medical representative about my medical issue. Even the immediate concern help line sent me to a Sono Bello customer representative. The representative didn't even know my doctor worked at the clinic where I had the procedure. It was embarrassing and I finally had to contact my family doctor for assistance. I will not recommend or use Sono Bello in the future.
But...I did have an excellent consultation by a extremely knowledgeable Senior Patient Care Consultant. Melody understood what I needed and help me through the decision to have my procedure done. I will update with my results.”
Joe on Yellow Pages
“I met with Melody, 'Senior Patient Care Consultant' for my initial consultation. After taking the time to ask about myself, my activities, my goals, she suggested that the procedures they provided would not be the best option for me. At first I was a little disappointed, but after Melody explained, in detail, what my procedure would require, I was very grateful. In a world in which it seems everyone is more concerned about the bottom line and making profits, having a consultant like Melody, who would take the time to listen, and who genuinely cares for patients and their satisfaction is a true blessing. Before I left she did provided me with information to a local surgeon who would be able to help me achieve my goals and objectives. In the future, if I or anyone in my family is considering liposuction, I will suggest they consult with Melody.”
Brian on Yellow Pages
“I have been so pleased with my entire experience at Tacoma Sono Bello. The entire staff is amazing, from the communication from Tessa about scheduling appointments, to Melody the consultant, to Sade, who is AMAZING, to Monica who was SO KIND and caring , to Dr. Nees, who did an awesome job. I had been thinking about lipo for so many years and have always struggled with the "pooch" and "chub rub". Being a runner and never getting the body I hoped for, this was a great decision for me. The pain was tolerable, I was mostly only uncomfortable during the whole procedure, and the recovery for me was no worse than a half marathon. Thank you Tacoma Sono Bello!! You changed my life.”
Tera on Yellow Pages
“I had a very pleasant experience with the Tacoma clinic! The staff and consultants were wonderful! I had Dr. Neese and he is absolutely amazing!

“riginally I went with my friend to her consultation appointment for moral support but told Liz, our fabulous consultant, that it was something I was interested in as well. By the middle of my friend's appointment I was getting a consultation as well and getting set up as well! Ten days later I had my procedure. The first night was rough but by the morning I was up and moving and while I was sore it was manageable. By the second day I was only taking Ibuprofen. The office was really good about checking up on me and making sure I was ok. Today is post op day 5 and I'm pretty much back to my normal routine except no gym for awhile. I had my abs, hips and waist done. I can't remember the last time I felt so good about myself. This isn't a quick fix and it's actually motivating me to be healthier in general. Thank you Sono Bello!! Extra Kudos to Liz Downie my consultant. She's smart and wonderful and so supportive. If you can get her as your consultant you'll be well cared for!!!”

“The most important thing to me when going through an ordeal such as lipo, is the relationship you have with the staff. Every single staff member that I dealt with, consultant, front desk, nurses and surgeon, were all very warm and welcoming. This makes me, the customer more comfortable. I love the entire staff! As for my procedure, I had my thighs done July 3, 2015 so I am still fresh off the table. But the e-mails they send and the phone calls they make to ensure you are comfortable and have all of your questions or concerns addressed, couldn't make my experience any better. They really care not only about your progress but about you as a person. What more do you need? I look forward to seeing my final results and possibly even another procedure. Sono Bello Staff Members: DO NOT CHANGE A THING! You are all wonderful!”

Liz was great at making me feel extremely comfortable. The Drs and nurses were super nice and calming. The results so far are looking amazing. I kind of wish I would have done another area lol. The recovery wasn't bad at all. I was back at the gym in 2-3 days. During the procedure at times it actually tickled lol. I definitely recommend if you have those tough spots that won't go away!”

Nicole on Yellow Pages
“So it's been nearly 4 weeks since my procedure. Bruising is totally gone and swelling continues to deminish. I feel great and wish I could go running and be back to full mobility. At the rate I'm healing I think I will be back to full normal mobility in another month or so. Results were slow at first to notice due to the swelling but it's getting better and more noticeable daily. The staff at Sono Bello, Tacoma are amazing! Liz is great at what she does, she reminds me of a real housewife of beverly hills. She's extremely polished and knowledgeable at her job. She made the process very simple and comfortable. Dr. Marten is very.... Clinical. Ha he's just professional and to the point! He made me feel comfortable and I had no issues with trusting him and his abilities. During my procedure he talked to me and kept me aware of everything that he was doing and how it was going. I would recommend this team to anyone who is considering a body contouring procedure!”

“For many years after having kids (2- 19 and 16 years old) I always joked with my husband about getting liposuction and he always told me “no you need to put in the effort in to try to lose the weight and get your shape back” well having babies and being a working mom there wasn’t much time to focus on strictly myself without the guilt so not much happened. Then six years ago I finally got serious about putting in the effort I started running and that turned into training and running marathons along with various other activities, my body wasn’t really changing although I went from a size 10-12 down to a size 6-8 and would lose a little bit of weight but always had the “spare tire” around the waist and upper abdomen.
During this last summer I was training for my seventh marathon and my husband could see and finally understand my frustration. I told him I was going to at least go in for a consultation for body sculpting. I had researched some places and that’s when I choose Sono Bello. In September made the appointment for the consultation that’s when I met Liz Downie, she was very helpful in helping me understand what would be best for what I was looking for. I wasn’t 100% ready to go all in at that time as I had to do the home work and run all this by my husband you see if he wasn’t on board then I wasn’t ( I want him to be just as happy as I).
Prior to my procedure I met with Dr Nees to go over what areas will be done and get my before pics taken. My appointment was scheduled for Nov 6th 2015 …. I was scheduled to have tumescent Liposuction done on my upper/lower abdomen, waist and inner thighs. I went in ready and not fully knowing what the outcome was going to be, how I’d look, will it hurt, am I am going to be happy, all sorts of thoughts running through my mind. During the procedure and getting home I don’t remember too much and that probably was a good thing….
The next day when I could get up and move around boy was I surprised.
My shape was completely different… I actually had a shape and it didn’t include a spare tire! Tomorrow will be two weeks since my surgery and I can already fit into a size 4 pants and I have had to make a pile of I can’t wear anymore clothes because they are too big. When I went back to work my co-workers couldn’t believe the change, I actually had a couple ladies ask me what I did because I look good.
I had my 1 week follow up appointment and all the staff was just as great. Sade took my after pics and was very informative of all the things that I was and would be experiencing and reassured me if I had any questions I could call anytime. I am so thankful for the art of body sculpting and for Sono Bello to make the choice a confident one.
I am very happy with my results at week 2 that I know I will be ecstatic at month 3. I can’t wait to start running again! Oh and my hubby is very happy too!!!”

I'm enjoying my new body! The transformation is truly amazing, I take pics every chance I get. It's a dream come true, and I owe it all to LIZ DOWNIE! I will forever be grateful for what she did for me, she went over and beyond. She was very professional, but also very caring, and understood my needs. Also Bree, Sade, and all staff very friendly and helpful. My surgeon Bryan McIntosh, listen to all my concerns, and acknowledge them very honest and nurturing.

“I love my body even after a week from surgery:) My experience from making my appointment until even today keeps me cheesing from ear to ear. I am a mother of 4 children all under 10 and one being a c-section. YES Ladies I had the bottom tummy lip is what I called it. No matter what I did I still had it (my baby will be 2 next month. So I decided to do something about it. At first I thought work it out...DID IT.....diet.....DID IT.....skinny teas.....fat burners.....starving myself...DID IT. I still have the fat in my stomach and bra rolls. After seeing the commercial I filled out the form and boom they called within 10-15 minutes. I made my appointment for the first available. I know crazy right but hey you only live once and I wanted to be sexy again. I got to my appointment on the 14th of December and met Liz. If you see her you would want whatever she had done because she was beautifulllllllllllllllll. I had my husband with me and he was like whoa. lol Trust me I was super nervous the whole time because I had to show her and my husband the fat that I've been hiding for almost two years. After being told how beautiful my skin was and how fabulous I would look after I was sold. I didn't even get to the money part. I got it financed....APPROVED is all I heard. My experience was pretty pleasant. IM READY TO TELL THE WORLD. I did this for me....Dr Marten was my surgeon and he was professional and thorough and Sade was my nurse super sweet and down to earth. The day of the surgery was smooth and I had some discomfort during the procedure but there was nurse with RED HAIR that talked to me through the process. The procedure was done in little over an hour and my husband took me home and I made dinner. I went back to work the next day on light duty status. I took the pain meds for about four days with motrin as needed after. The pain is like the day after doing zumba; my body was just sore and my kids said I walked funny. Fast forward to my week after which is today...I can wear a two piece on a beach and be comfortable. Yes I am still swollen, numb and sore but I am almost where I want to be and thats not being afraid of the mirror. OMG I wrote a story but its real. No I dont work for the company...NO I didnt get paid or received a discount or promised anything. I just wanted to share my experience. I wish I could show you pictures. When you go to your appointment ask to see my pictures. A+ TO SADE AND LIZ:) OH YEA one more thing whatever time your appointment is when you get seen. No wait time unless you're late.”

He truly cares for his patients. I Love the results I have right now. All the assistants there are wonderful as well, so nice and caring. My consultant Liz Downie, she's amazing too. She tries to keep up with me after my procedures, too see how I'm doing or if I need anything. I just loved being there and I don't regret going there at all .

“I have been extremely pleased with my entire experience at Tacoma Sono Bello. The entire staff is amazing, from the communication, to scheduling, the care before the procedure, the procedure itself, and after care. I am 54 years old and was debating if I was "too old". I am so glad I did it. The pain was tolerable, I was mostly comfortable during the whole procedure, nothing "hurt",and the recovery was fairly easy. It was definitely better to move around than set around. The team puts great effort into communication, answering any questions you have no matter how silly. It has been 5 weeks since my procedure and I am loving my body.”

“Above and beyond to make me feel comfortable
From the moment I made my appointment the staff at Sono Bella, St. Louis, went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and informed regarding my decision. Dr. Shatz made sure I had a realistic expectation of what I needed to do for success and obtain the best results possible. Dr Shatz also visually gave me a true picture of what I will look like when my healing process is complete. No surprises except ""better than expected"". He followed up with me personally the next day to see how I was feeling from my prcedure. Thank you for your honesty, helpfulness, and a more than wonderful experience. Already my confidence level has gone from a 4 to a 10+. I'm already getting compliments one week out how good I look in my clothes. Best decision I've ever made with what I feel has been a minimal investment. I would not consider going elsewhere and hope that my friends take my advice to contact Sono Bella, St. Louis for their lifetime experience.”

I felt the staff was professional, caring, compassionate, and experienced. I did not experience 9 or 10 for pain but stayed around 4,. I could tolerate it and had just right amount of pain med coverage. Thank you for taking care of me.”

“The experience I had at Sono Bello was amazing
The experience I had at Sono Bello was amazing. All the staff from the front desk to the nurses everyone was great. Especially Liz Downie she made you feel comfortable no pressure and answered all my questions. The Doctor who did my Lipo was Dr. Esteban Marten and his nurse Megan were amazing!!! I've already referred a few friends to try Sono Bello.”

“Can't wait to see my final results!
I am happy with the care that has been given to me from your facility. From the receptionist who carefully reviewed my forms and accommodated a follow-up appointment when my schedule was in conflict. Megan was awesome. I don't know how she got me into this body suit! Dr. Bullis was kind and I'm not bruised too badly. Overall I have had a great experience, I haven't been in "pain", only minor discomfort. However, being up and moving lessens the discomfort. Can't wait to see my final results!”

“I would definitely recommend Sono Bello to everyone. My entire experience was so positive and continues to be still to this day. The staff really made me feel comfortable. Shaab was the first staff member I met during my consultation and she was really awesome. She was knowledgeable, professional, and was real with me on what to expect. I had lots of questions and she was able to answer them, very patient and seemed to be really listening to what I wanted. All the nurses super up beat with positive attitudes and Dr. Saxon is seriously a frickin miracle worker. lol. and he is a really nice guy it seemed. Didn't make me feel rushed. My results were so much better than I had expected. This was a great choice for me and I cant describe how happy I am for making it. If your body is holding you back go talk to Shaab. you will be super happy you did!”

“I’ve had two surgeries at Sono Bello consisting of lipo from 7 areas and the e/x. I’ve left happy every time. From meeting with Joanne in tears just knowing I needed a change after having my son. I had two different doctors, both were absolutely fantastic. I’ve also had lots of different nurses from pre op and post op appts. My favorite nurse is Monyca, she goes above and beyond. I’ve been happy since the day I left Sono Bello early July of 2018 before my first surgery. I’m still healing but I’m confident I will be so happy with my results this go around as well.”

“The staff were so friendly from the first consult visit to my follow up appts. So kind & kept me feeling calm in a somewhat nervous state of mind. My nurses were amazing & Dr. Wortham was so funny & kept everything fun while doing an awesome job. My only “complaint” was that the actual procedure hurt more than I expected it too. This is not to blame the doctor or anything, but my body seemed to not take the pain meds as well as I had hoped so I was feeling more pain during the procedure than anyone anticipated. But nurse Sylvi & Dr. Wortham helped keep me as comfortable & calm as they could making it all worth it. And my results, although still in progress, already are AMAZING!!!!”
sarah on Google
“I had lipo to my upper and lower abdomen, waist and back bra roll in July of last year. I was supposed to have my e/x done too but the dr had to stop due to bleeding. I waited six months and got my e/x done as well as some additional lipo to some new places. I’m almost two weeks post op now from my latest surgery figured I’d post some pics! Dr Bullis was great I’d definitely recommend him also as far as nurses go, Monyca is my all time fave!
Pic difference is July 2018 to March 2019”

“I visited Sonobello like 4-5 hours ago but I came in March, met with Liz who was AMAZING and bam......pre op scheduled, surgery scheduled and I can see that I am going to be fine as wine. My 6 weeks is in late April is like a kid waiting for Christmas. Dr. Wortham was direct and charming. I’m so happy I FINALLY went through my transformation. The procedure itself was good, the numbing was the most uncomfortable but totally manageable. Don’t hesitate...just DO IT!”
Tara on Birdeye
“From consultation to preop, to day of operation everything was great! I was kept well informed about everything and all my questions answered. Everyone was nice and courteous, despite my nervousness about everything. At no time did I ever feel pressured to do the procedure or felt like my needs were not in the best interest of the staff. I’m excited and can’t wait to see my results!! Thank you so much, Tacoma Sono Bello!!”

“After having my daughter I had this “pouch” on my stomach that I just couldn’t get rid of. I hated going out with friends because I always felt so much bigger than all of them. I just had my upper/ lower abdomen, hips, and upper arms done! I’m still a little swollen but I am already loving my flatter stomach! I have gotten so many compliments on how much thinner I look and I can’t wait to go out and show off my new body when the healing is done! I absolutely would recommend this to any one who has that stubborn belly fat they just can’t seem to get rid of!”

Because of her I will refer my friends and family if anyone is looking to do lipo.”

“Ive been unhappy with my procedures since they were done. I was not numb enough when the Dr started, so it hurt A LOT. I kept kicking my legs because it hurt.... so he yelled at me to stop. (They gave me xanax to calm down, didnt help)
I have tried for the past 10 months to either get a revision due to my complete lack of satisfaction, or get my money back. They have strung me along making promises they havent kept.
They avoid listening to the client. Both Bri and Joanne have made promises to help with this process, and theyve fallen flat. Neither keeps in contact as they promised, and no solution is made.
I want my money back, I do not trust Sono Bello to do my revision or any other procedures. They lie, scam, and avoid customers when they have any kind of concern.
Go to a REAL facility!!!!”

Although the surgery hasn’t been completed I am so happy with the office staff, all the nurses I met, and Dr Bullis. The pre op was informational and I was able to ask all the questions I had (big and small) with out judgment. I will be happy to review again after surgery!”

“I was nervous to come in but needed to figure out a way to make tape for the military. A few of my peers had been into the Tacoma Sono Bello and had great results so I took a chance. During the pre op the doctor warned me that swelling could last up to six months which made me uneasy. I went through with my procedure and saw dramatic changes at my one week post op. The nurse was super encouraging and told me that I'll continue to lose even more inches over the next 6 months. I look forward to the progress and I'm no longer worried about passing my military exam. Thanks to all of the staff- great experience.”

“Sono bello Tacoma has made me feel my personal body goals are their goals. What impresses me the most is their exceptional service, you don't just have the procedure done and that's it. The staff has continued to set follow up appointments with me and have always been available to answer any concerns I have. That's how I know I made the right choice.
My only regret is not having done this procedure sooner, instead of wasting thousands of dollars on gimmicks and diet plans that don't burn fat, but burn a hole in my wallet. Im in my third week and i can already see some of the results setting in.”
L on Birdeye
“This is one of the best life choices I’ve made and I have no regrets. I am super excited about my results thus far and cannot stop staring in the mirror. I’m only 1 week post-op and I am already planning my next procedure. The pain was very minimal and I actually stopped taking pain meds on day two using only Tylenol to manage any discomfort. Sonobello offers a very safe option to cosmetic surgery as they only used local anesthesia on me. I highly recommend Sonobello to all looking for phenomenal results at the most affordable cost. I can’t stop snapping pictures and sending them to my family and friends. I am grinning from ear to ear !!!!”

“Do not go here! I had my procedure done. They warned me it could take two procedures to get the job done but if that is necessary it would be half the cost. Since the first procedure I have called a dozen times to schedule the second procedure and every time they say they are having issues scheduling it because the original doctor switched locations but they assure me they will call me back as soon as they can figure it out with the home office... it has been 6 months and nothing. Should have bought a new car instead of this garbage.”

“Thank you for helping me live my life beautiful!
Making the decision to have any surgical procedure can be frightening if you haven't had much experience with surgery. You don't really know what to expect. But the nurses, doctors and staff with whom I have had the pleasure to share my journey made the decision easier for me, because they were so knowledgeable and kind. I always felt like I was special, almost like the "only patient", they always had time for me, and my doctors were available 24/7 if I needed any help. I received calls after surgery from Dr. Dhaliwal and Dr. Bullis, and my post-op appointments with Katie, especially, made me feel confident about my recovery. I don't want to leave out anyone, because every single person with whom I had contact was professional and kind! Always a smile and a happy disposition. I am telling all my friends about my experience at Sono Bello and encouraging them to take advantage of a free consultation with Sono Bello. Thank you for helping me live my life beautiful!”

I had the most amazing experience at Sonobello from my very first point of contact with Liz... to the reception staff... to the Nurse and Surgeon (Dr Maarten) ... to the PA Katie post-operatively. It was consistently pleasant and professional. Many staff went above and beyond in their compassion and kindness! I am less than 2 weeks out from my procedure and I am already so thrilled with the results and had very minimal discomfort and recovery! I would highly recommend Sonobello to anyone... it is a superb quality of service and surgical result! I had a truly exceptional experience! Thank you Sonobello staff for everything.”

“Thank You ALL
I visited Sono Bello in Bellevue not sure of what to expect, just the idea of going in there was intimidating enough. The friendly and welcoming way I was greeted by the staff really help me feel comfortable while waited for my consultation. By the end of the consultation, I was sure I wanted to move forward with the procedure, all my questions were answered and it didn't feel like a marketing pitch. From the pre-op appointment to the first follow up, I really appreciate the charisma of the staff members, from the front desk to the nurses and special thanks to the nurse who took care of me during the procedure Theresa and Dr. Sobrino who managed to make feel comfortable in a situation where physically was uncomfortable. To top it of, being able to speak to the Dr. Sobrino in Spanish it was great! Thank You ALL. Now I just have to get through the healing process and enjoy the results.”

“Thank you for changing my life!
I have and will continue to tell them that this was the best decision I've made in a long time! After having 2 children and a back issue that made it difficult for me to get my body back, I knew it was something I wanted to do... just didn't have the courage to do it. Now I sit here (with my drastically flatter tummy) and wonder why it took me so long! I look and feel the best I have in over a decade! I've already recommended Sono Bello Tacoma to all of my friends and family and even a few strangers! I credit this wonderful team at the Tacoma location for what see as the ideal experience. From Liz Downing (who is simply amazing) and her willingness and patience to work with me, all the nurses I interacted with, and of course Dr. Marten (who in my eyes was the nest Dr. I could have asked for). It wasn't just before and after the surgery that impressed me. Its been the weekly information sent to me on what to expect and what I may be experiencing, the phone call I received following from the Dr himself, the call from the nurses. I'm completely blown away by how great of an experience this has been for me. Thank you for changing my life!”

Also, I'd like to thank the Nurse I saw one week after my procedure - thank you for your kindness; encouragement; you truly put my mind at ease! My experience has been so very positive! Its been 2 months now since I had my procedure and like Dr. Marten told, "You will see a significant difference" and I have.

I knew then that it was a good decision, but had no idea how happy I would be with the results. It has changed my life. I am happier than I have ever been and have more confidence than I have ever had. Thank you to the staff and to Dr. Marten in Tacoma. You are amazing.”

“Sonobello is a total rip off if your going here for fat loss me & my mother came here for Lipo & they did not remove a thing still look the same.. the commercials is not legit. Not one person but two people got horrible results says a lot after having the procedure I could tell by the next month they didn’t remove enough fat I contacted them & told them they told me they couldn’t do nothing till 8months check up .. well that’s were they try & get you they know if you wait a while that more then likely you gain weight from being depressed because your results are not there I cried at my 3 month out check up saying I hate it & the girl just sat there & say they can’t redo your procedure mind you I contacted them a month out saying they didn’t get enough fat & they kept making us wait . Plus I work out so if you know muscle can make your weight go up. But I contacted them a month out from surgery saying they didn’t remove enough & I texted the doctors personal phone line saying I didn’t even have enough fat removed . Me & my mother spent thousands to have this done & no results in the end beware tv is false advertisement. I would not recommend Dr.Bullis for lipo EVER AGAIN”

“I've researched and waited for so long to do lipo because I felt unsure of myself and the surgery. I am 3 weeks post op and feeling pretty fantastic about my decision. I wish I would have waited for fall or winter due to the summer heat in compression suits... or that I had done it years ago! Everyone in the Sonobello Tacoma office is fantastic with an exemplary surgical office. I couldn't have made a better choice for myself or in a provider. I am doing my best to be as patient and diligent in after care procedures as possible knowing it's not a quick fix or recovery and so far so good... but all I want is to get back in the gym and be myself instead of tender! Thank you Sonobello!”

“From the moment of your initial consultation, every single member of the Sonobello team make you feel important. They explain you the treatment and procedure options available, as well as the financial options that best suites you.
For me, has been a wonderful experience. I have recieved the physical boost I needed to embrace my weight loss goals. When I look in the mirror every day I feel confident, more beautiful and sexy. I am at my 3 month post surgery mark and I already love the results I have seen so far. It will take a little more time to see the fullest extent of my liposuction and tummy tuck, but I am in love with what I see.
The procedure was confortable and I even talked with the doctor the entire time. Amazing!!!
If you are hesitant about a body procedure, you should visit Sonobello they will answer all your questions and will guide you to your picture perfect body.”

“Sono Bello Tacoma is amazing. The staff are great, the location is very clean and everyone was very professional. Dr. Marten is brilliant. I am beyond grateful for the results of his work. I had two rounds of trisculpt. My first in 2016 and my 2nd in 2017. I had a total of 7 sections done and have gone from a size 10/12 to a size 2/4. I am 2 1/2 years out from my first procedure and have been able to keep the weight and inches off . It has given me the confidence and motivation to keep working hard. I wear short shorts and form fitted clothes which I would have never done before my procedures. I used to hate trying on clothes and now I buy them off the rack!! Thanks You Sono Bello Tacoma. You are the best!!”

“In November of 2017 I had a procedure with Dr Marten at the Sono Bello Tacoma clinic. My area of concern was my mid section because I had an apple shape. I decided to do Full abdomen, waist, hips, back bra roll and the skin excision. My results are phenomenal and I couldn't be happier. Even with the skin excision I was back to work on day 4. I strongly encourage a consult if you are on the fence or wanting more information!”

“I came to the Tacoma location because I'm local and I've heard great reviews from the web and friends. Very Interested in lipo will be thinking about this soon. So I decide to just do venus. My Venus treatments were with Erricka! She is very knowledgeable and has a great personality. The staff at this location are warm and welcoming from start to finish! Thanks Tacoma”

“Everyone from the moment I walked into the door was kind, professional, funny and excited to help me. I CANNOT say enough good about the staff. Not once did I leave not knowing exactly what they were doing, what the realistic results would be, my part in making that happen and the part the staff would (and have) played in helping me to get to that point. It was obvious they were knowledgeable in this field and even talked to me about other options that I might prefer to help me get my desired goal. ( Like me going to a different provider if that is what would be best for me). They were AMAZING from the front desk to the post surgery visits. Absolutely loved the staff! (Can you tell I loved the staff?)”

“I was in for my 6 month post op and the sweet girls asked me to do a review about my results. Day to day I hadn't how much my body had truly changed. My clothes were feeling and fitting differently but it didn't hit me until I was able to get copies of my before and after photos from Harpreet. (*sp?) All the girls in the office shared in my amazement! I am too shy to post photos online- but this was worth every penny. I might be back for a few other areas! Also, I cant end this review without a thank you to Dr Marten. He is a true surgeon who cares about his patients- he even text me the night of my surgery. Nashville Sono Bello is lucky to have him.”

“Well I thought I better elaborate on my wonderful experience at the Sono Bello in Tacoma.
End of March I went in for a consultation with Liz, and decided that I was going to go ahead and go through the procedures...
Inner thighs, knees, calves, outer thighs, hips!
Why so many areas - I have had large legs my entire life. My calves, knees, and thighs were all one size (big size). I would lose weight only to not change much in the leg area they were tough spots for me. My pants size would only fluctuate one down... and yes I worked out. In fact I had a personal trainer my husband who was district manager for 10 years at Family Fitness Centers and has the body of a god :). I went in to see Dr. Marten end of April and we decided to split up the procedure into 2 parts. May 5th, I had inner thighs, knees, and inner calves done. The procedure is pretty forgetful itself, you don't remember much. The nurse at the end dressed me in my compression suit with the pads for the leakage. I did not wake up again till the next day felt sore in spots. Yes, the very next day I showered, washed my suit no problems or issues. I replaced the pads. Third day, I was not leaking took pads out. A bit sore, bruised, and swollen but not enough pain to use any pain meds.
Major changes in just 2 weeks, I wore a skirt above the knees for the first time in my adult life for sure maybe even since I was a teen (still had the suit, but looked like I was wearing leggings).
Second surgery, May 24th outer calves, hips, outer thighs (oh yes and by then I was ready and I added my waist and bra roll :)...
Third surgery, June 8th had my arms, and front of thighs done too!
Today is June 20th, I am starting to see everything change for the better. I already fit a smaller size even with some areas still swollen.
BEST thing (other than going back to college late in life) I've ever done for myself. It was this or a new car, I definitely made the right choice hehehehehehe...
I only missed with the 3 procedures 8 days of work :)
Thank you again Sono Bello Team TACOMA!”

“I didn’t know what to expect when coming to sino bello, my husband made our appointment and the font desk and were very kind. Erricka did our initial Venus consultation and informed us about the treatment itself and expectations from it. Our treatments have been excellent! Erricka has been very profesional, kind, make us feel very much welcome with every service that we have with her! What I like about coming to get my treatments is that I have the same person every week which is very important to us and they other places don’t provide. We are looking forward to our treatments with Erricka!”

“I had a large scar removal and contouring lipo. The area that was the scar has help tighten my upper and lower ab area. The staff of professionals and Sono Bello were polite and caring. When I asked questions they always tried there best to get answers for me. I don't have any current complications and I am recovering nicely. My surgeon Dr. Wortham was attentive and preformed excellently with caring follow up calls and with an excellent bedside manor. Liz was encouraging and quick with all the information needed. Thank you Sono Bello and all included. Looking forward to the final results and working closely with all of the staff to resolve any issues that arise.”

At my consult I had a hoot of a time with Liz- I was nervous because I was not able to speak to a doctor right away but during pre op and surgery date they answered all of my questions and helped me feel at ease. I'm only a few weeks post op so time will tell, but pleased thus far.”

“I came in and was greeted by Liz with her beautiful smile. I just want to say hands down Erricka was very professional and pleasant. She explained every detail for better understanding. The paperwork was pretty quick along with pictures. When the process started; she relaxed me. The gel was cool and when it got too hot; I informed Erricka. That machine was sucking my stomach. No it wasn't too bad; no it didn't hurt; and no there was no down town. I had to skip the gym that night but was running the next day. Make sure to drink water so you can pee out the cells. I can't wait for my next session.”

“Where to start... ? I have been thinking about doing something like this for a few years now. After loosing 110lbs and being in great shape, I had to have a serious back surgery and couldn't run or workout like I did before. So, of course, I gained a little of the weight back. But no matter what I did even before my surgery, I could never get rid of my 'muffin-top' and I also had never really had a waist to speak of as I'm very short in stature. So, when I finally worked up the nerve, I called Sono Bello. From the first phone call, I was put at ease. I was afraid to be judged or looked down on. No one made me feel that way. From my consultation with Liz, up to today, my 3 month post op appt, they have been the nicest, kindest and totally funniest office staff!! Kristin at the front desk, well, she's hilarious!! Dr. Bullis and his nurse Sylvie are truly amazing. All of the office staff are super easy to be around. Whenever I go in or call, it feels very much like I'm calling or seeing friends. I am so glad that I got up the nerve to actually do it. And feel very blessed that when I decided to go for it, I chose them. Oh! And my results??? Holy crap!! When they showed me my before pictures, I almost cried. And all the girls in the office got so excited seeing them, too. They really are a great team. And make you feel like you're a member of that team!! #TeamSonoBelloTacoma

“I must say, the experience with the pre-operative staff of Sono Bello was very reassuring, answering any question I might have and making sure I understood the process. Dr. Bullis was a saint during my procedure and it was fantastic! I am happy to report, he is a artistic perfectionist and made sure I was as happy with the results as he proceeded through each stage of the process, always making sure the areas in which he was working were complete. The whole experience is amazing, seeing the results at each level and knowing your are in the best operative care. Thank you to Dr. Bullis and Liz for making every effort to keep me comfortable and content. I had my first combination of procedures in late April and my second set of procedures in August. I could not be happier with the results each day. Thank you to all of the staff at Sono Bello.”

“I just had my third drop. It's been such an eye-opening experience. You have to truly want to change your life and work for your results. I knew I was stuck in my habits. I knew I needed to change. I lost control of my habits and I needed help to change. The team was patient and kind. They have been with me through this all. They call to check on me and make sure I'm feeling well. My coach holds me accountable but gives me grace to learn new habits. If you really are ready for a change, you can do this. It's hard. It's so hard on some days. But my eyes are on the prize of getting and saying healthy. The staff helps me along and always answers all my questions. It's going to be so worth it in the end.”

On my way to the clinic for the proceduce( inner thighs), I was a little bit skeptical because Of bad experience In the past.

I love the staff they are very supportive and sweet. If your thinking about it, I would definitely suggest going to see them.”

From the first call with the Sono Bello Representative to my post op experience, I have been pleased with the service I received. The environment and staff at Sono Bello were especially pleasant and comfortable. Dr. Martin was very informative and thorough during my pre op appointment. He listened carefully and addressed all of my questions and concerns. He was realistic with me about my expectations. The nurse and Dr. Martin took great care of me during my procedure. My post op experience was just as they had explained. I was back to work on day 3. It's been a week and I not only see amazing results, I feel great. I am truly excited and appreciative of this journey. It has motivated me to continue in health and wellness. Most grateful!”

“I went in for a consultation, a week later I was scheduled for my trisculpt contouring. Upper/Lower Abs, Sides, Bra Rolls and Pubis. What I thought was a minor procedure wasn't as minor as I thought... What I wasn't prepared for was the 10 lb weight gain, pain, post-surgical swelling and tissue hardening. I'm only 10 days out and have a long way to go yet for recovery. I was back at work in a few days, but not pain-free. My abs, back and sides are still numb, and hard to the point of not being able to bend over fully. Be prepared and do the research for post-op recovery before going in. I don't know the end result yet, but have a pretty good idea I will be pleased. Would I do it again? Yes, knowing what I know now, I'd be better prepared for the post-op recovery. Everyone says this will improve, and daily I see improvement, just not fast enough for me....I'm a very impatient person. Customer service in Tacoma was very good. I liked my nurses and the reception area, and Liz was great!”

“Just do it!
Before going to Sonobello for my consultation I was lacking self esteem, feeling defeated, and was absolutely hopeless. I had tried dieting and exercise but it was no use. The belly fat refused to go. My consultation was with Liz and she is so wonderful! She was able to share some of her own past struggles and truly showed compassion. That day I left felling excited, hopeful, and let's be honest, a little nervous. 2 weeks ago I had my upper and lower abd done along with my waist. In this short time Sonobello has changed my life! I can walk with my head up and I definitely don't have to fake a smile any longer. I'm excited to see where my results will be in the next couple of months. Dr. Bullis and staff I am forever grateful! To all of you out there thinking of doing this for yourself... JUST DO IT! You deserve it and so did I!”

“I recommend Sono in Tacoma completely.
I was cursed with love handless all my life no matter my weight. I decided to have Sono do lipo on my handles and lower abdomen. I was very nervous and unsure if it would work. After consultation with Liz, I decided to do it. I must say upfront that the entire staff and doctor were friendly, helpful and efficient. I appreciated the entire experience. The actual operation was almost painless and very comfortable. There was very light sting when the anesthetic were given. After that I had no problem. When the procedure was finished I felt great. The initial bruising and swelling was exactly as described and lasted about 1 week or so. There is some discomfort and light pain from the procedure but I describe it as like sore muscles after a hard hill climb. Not painful as much as sore. After a couple days Of taking it easy, I could do almost anything. I followed the instructions and I had no problem. Now I am 3 weeks and feel great. I look better than I can remember. I actually walk around with just my tank top compression shirt on. I am anxious to hit the beach without a shirt:):) I understand the final results will take 3-6 months. I look forward to the end results. In closing, I recommend Sono in Tacoma completely. My experience is excellant with the procedure, the doctor and the entire staff who are very fun and friendly.”

“Thank you so very much everyone at Tacoma Sono Bello!
Most important to me in my experience at Sono Bello is the professionalism, courtesy, and transparency of all of the staff. For myself, it was a personal decision to make this step towards boosting my self image and I felt vulnerable going in to talk about it at Sono Bello. However, the professional manner in which the consultant worked with me regarding my objectives, educating me on the process, and discussing the options, truly alleviated my worries. I can say the same for the nurses and the doctor. Let's face it, making changes to one's body means talking about it, and letting the professionals look at it, touch it, take pictures of it, etc. But all of that was very comfortable because of the care, consideration, and professionalism each person showed towards me in every encounter. Throughout it all, I was kept informed of every aspect of the procedure, including what to expect before, during and after. I was happily surprised on three separate occasions I was asked to write down my expectations for the procedure. These were three opportunities to talk about what would take place and how close to my expectations the end result would likely be. One of those moments was the day of the procedure, and I went into it confidently. Every touch point was handled with the same level of professionalism, with the staff equally caring and considerate, and was an ongoing education - all of which built my confidence. This includes the doctor calling me the day after the procedure, and nurse in my one week follow up visit. So, it took me a long while to muster the nerve to make my first appointment with Sono Bello. Had I known then, what I know now about the experience, I would have been in long ago. It has not been long enough since the procedure to enjoy the final result, but based on what I've experienced so far, I'm certain my expectations will be met. Thank you so very much everyone at Tacoma Sono Bello!”

From the front office to the operating room, the service is excellent. Everyone is helpful and thoughtful. Your privacy is respected from the counter, the receptionist are courteous, professional and friendly. The staff makes sure you are well informed before and after your procedure. I was so impressed with Dr. Nees who called me on Sunday after my procedure just to check on how I was doing. Who does that! With customer services being so poor today, Sonobello is one of the best establishments I have visited in many years. I am still swollen and losing weight but, the day I left after my procedure, I was very happy with the results. Thank you for making me feel comfortable doing something not widely accepted.”

“The reason for the 3 stars is there is always room for improvement. First, when scheduling for consultations, follow-ups, etc you should be punctual with time. Clients sitting around for long periods of time is probably not recommended. Second, prior to performing the procedure, allow the client to actually have the time to become effected by the medication that is used to make them relaxed, and do not appear to be in a hurry to complete the procedure as if it is an assembly line. I felt a lot of pain and probably the worst experience I have ever voluntarily done to myself. It was addressed early on the use of numbing medication would need to be upped to do to the high tolerance. I thought it was understood. Due to my experience the likely hood of opting for additional services or referral of others would probably be met with resistance.”

I saw an immediate result and was back to work in as little as 3 days. The staff was very helpful and informative and made me feel comfortable. I never felt judged or looked down on. I would recommend this to anyone.”

All the staff were courteous, answered all my questions and very respectful. I was worried about the procedure and not feeling the pain and true to their word, I didn't have any issues with pain. It's early in the stages of healing so I haven't seen the results yet but the team has walked me through what to expect and encouraging through out the process.”

“Sono Bello has great customer service.
Sono Bello has great customer service. You are greeted with a friendly smile when you walk in the door! The staff listens to your concerns and helps in any way they can. They follow up contact has been great, as well. The weekly emails really helped me understand each stage of the entire process. Although, I still have some personal goals to reach, the procedure I had at Sono Bello gave me a little piece of what I'm going for...happiness with myself.”

“Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful.
Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. They all made me feel welcome and listened to all my concerns. My consultant Liz is the absolute sweetest! I shared my story with her and she was very uplifting and motivating. Dr. Marten was fabulous! I was so nervous the day of surgery and he talked to me thru the whole surgery process. Made me feel so relaxed and comfortable. This team is amazing! And I am so thankful I decided to go with this Sonobello team! Thank you Sonobello Tacoma!!!”

“The staff is very supportive and confidential.
I felt very comfortable and confident the minute I walked thru the door. They are professional about everything. All the staff involved in my procedure was focused on me ,making sure I was doing well before, and especially during the procedure, and after. The doctor even called me at home later that day. I am glad I had it done, only wish I had done it years ago. The staff is very supportive and confidential.”

“Thank you so much for all you have done!
I love my new body! It feels a little odd at first, like a partial numbness for a week or so. The compression garment I wore for four weeks helped significantly with that. The procedure pain was very mild, similar to getting punched. Because there's no general anesthesia, I went home right after the procedure which only took a few hours. I was back to work in just two days! All my coworkers commented on the results immediately, even though there was swelling, pads, and a compression garment covering my true results! My bruising was gone within four days! My clothes no longer fit after two weeks! I have tried for three years to drop this weight, and I'm extremely happy with my body now (even though the final results won't be complete for another five months). I cannot say enough about the staff! They were very kind and never made me feel fat. They were very knowledgeable and pleasant. My doctor had a very gentle touch and let us listen to soft music during the procedure! And I really appreciated the financing options. A lot of my coworkers would not even be able to consider having liposuction without Sono Bello's financial options. Thank you so much for all you have done!”

At 58 years old I never thought I would have a flat stomach and curves, it's only been a week but I feel amazing. I can't wait to see what happens week by week now. I want to give a huge shout-out to all the staff and Doctor for making me feel so special and beautiful thank you. Sono Bello is definitely on my Christmas card list”

“Sonobello was awesome
Sonobello was awesome. It was actually my second experience with Sonobello. My first was in 2008 and again in 2016. My surgeon, Dr. Esteban Marten, was wonderful. He was very soft spoken but very knowledgeable. He asked what I wanted and thought about my body not what he thought I should do. I asked him questions and he was honest about the potential results. Let me be clear, I am THRILLED with the results. If every physician could have a "bed side manner" like Dr. Marten, the angst and anxiety would diminish substantially. His surgical nurse, Sylvia, was amazing. She made me AND my husband feel comfortable. She walked us through each step of the procedure. And all the staff from the front desk, to pre-op and post-op and let's not forget Liz who made this possible for me.Thank you to the entire staff at Tacoma's Sonobello. You all were exceptionally awesome!”

“I enjoy our time together.
I appreciated the staff's warm manner, from the front desk to the Dr and nurse in the procedure room. The procedure was surprisingly comfortable and I was actually back at work two days later! I experienced very little drainage and discomfort. Two-weeks post-op, I am thrilled with my results so far! The muffin-top is gone, the "permanent pregnancy" is gone, and I see a cute little feminine shape instead of a frumpy grandma body! I am told to expect even better results in the next few weeks, but even if I were to see no further improvement I'd still be so very pleased! I am in my mid-fifties and have a better figure now than in my youth or when I was teaching fitness classes 6 times weekly. I hate to be so vain, but the fact is that we women are judged by our appearance. I will be changing careers soon and I believe that my new-found confidence as a result of my improved appearance will , in addition to my skills and experience, will make me very competitive! As a bonus, my wonderful, patient husband will find I enjoy our time together more since I feel more attractive. I almost backed out, but this was one of the best decisions I ever made; a true investment in myself.”

“I am happy with the results.
This is my 3rd procedure at Sono Bello Tacoma this year. In April I had my upper and lower abs and love handles done. I was so pleased with the results, that I came back in October for inner and outer thighs. Finally, and completely unplanned, I decided to go for the Lift procedure in November. Liz was very helpful in assisting me in deciding what to do (or not to do) and then working with my schedule to establish the surgery dates. The ladies at the front desk are very pleasant and helpful, similarly for the nurses, particularly Preet. I appreciate the amount of time that Dr Marten spent with me before the procedure to ensure that I would be pleased with the results (I added an area and glad I did). For the Lift procedure Dr. Dhaliwal and his team, particularly Katie, have been great. The pre-op meeting was very thorough and I feel there were no surprises as a result - it has only been a week, but I am happy with the results.”

My family and I are amazed!! No words can describe my transformation from lumps to beautiful curves in just hours. I was driving the next day with minor discomfort, not pain!!! My best friend of 23 years couldn't believe his eyes when he first saw me (day after surgery), he almost didn't recognize me! Sonobello has been a true blessing!”

“I had a wonderful experience at this location! It was so easy to get to, find parking, etc... You walk in to a beautiful office and smiling, friendly faces at the front desk. My consultant was wonderful, and immediately put me at ease. She was thorough and explained everything my procedure would entail and what it would cost. I felt like she really understood what I wanted to accomplish with this procedure. I was able to schedule my surgery in a timely fashion. I was able to meet with my surgeon at my pre op appointment and he was very professional and informative. He took the time to really understand what I wanted and helped me understand what to expect. The day of my procedure I was greeted by the same wonderful front staff and was introduced to the amazing nursing staff that took care of me throughout my procedure. They made sure I was comfortable through the entire visit. The pain during the procedure was mostly non existent. I couldn't believe it! My wonderful nurse, Lizzie saw to my every need and even chatted with me during my procedure. She made me feel so cared for, and I appreciated it so much. That night, my surgeon called to check on me and make sure that my pain was well managed. The post surgical pain was exactly what I had been told to expect, and I had what I needed to manage it and keep up with my kiddos the very next day. Periodically I would recieve e mails that addressed the exact questions I had on that particular day regarding my recovery. They were really helpful. I knew that if I needed anything I could always call and get any answers I needed. The staff take such great care of you. I am happy with the results I have achieved thus far, and look forward to the confidense my procedure has given me. I would definitely recommend this amazing group of individuals. They go beyond competent to compassionate.”

“What an amazing experience I had at Tacoma Washington SonoBello! The office is beautiful and the front desk staff are friendly and helpful. Kristen has a way of making you feel welcomed with just her smile. As consultants go there is no one in my opinion that could have been more thorough and understanding to my needs than Liz. Love her energy and professionalism! The day of my procedure, Dr. McIntosh, nurses Gloria and Brooke were simply amazing from start to finish. Liz you did an amazing job aligning me with the right team. It's only been 13 days and loving my results! My family and coworkers see my transformation happening daily. Best decision I could have made was to invest in me!”

“I wanted to take the time and share my experience so far. It has been 6 weeks since I had my upper and lower stomach done as well as my back (love handles). My back heal really fast. My stomach is coming along very well.
I was very anxious to get my procedure done the day of, my blood pressure was showing my nerves. Doctor Bullis was very reassuring. I had my procedure down on a Saturday and was back to work on Monday. I am very pleased so far with the services and the results. I am excited to hit the 6 month mark and see the results then. I am already looking into my next procedure.”

If you want your money gone, little or no fat taken out, Sono Bello is a place tom go!”

“I absolutely love my new, refreshed and youthful appearance thanks to Dr. Hardeep Dhaliwal!!
I'm a happy and energetic 58 year old mother and grandmother who has always felt young and healthy. Over the years I have noticed that my neck has become crepey and saggy . I stopped wearing my necklaces and replaced them with scarves and high collar shirts.
I finally decided to research my options when I heard about Dr. Dhaliwal and I had the chance to peruse his 'before and after' patient portfolio. I was truly astounded and amazed at the beautiful transformations . Upon receiving a thorough pre op consultation with Dr. Dhaliwal , I knew that I was in GREAT hands! I take this decision very seriously.
My post op care from Dr. Dhaliwal and his team has been supportive and assuring and my recovery has been quicker then I imagined.
A procedure like this requires a highly skilled and competent surgeon. I trust and recommend Dr. Hardeep Dhaliwal without hesitation.
As a side note, my dear husband of 36 years thinks I look, "radiant" and , "at least 20 years younger!" I certainly feel amazing and I'm so glad I did this.....and I'm really glad I didn't give my necklaces away!”

“I'm providing this review based on what my body looks like & the difficulty I've had with getting Sonobello to own up to or fix anything. Roughly 3 years ago I was in a near fatal bus accident; I barely survived. The accident hit my life like a wrecking ball and ended my 17 year military career. I put on 40ish pounds in a hurry. Given my permanent injuries I've been restricted by doctors to only walking, cycling, or yoga, "for LIFE". I entrusted Sonobello Tacoma with the task of making my body look as close to pre-accident form as possible. Sadly, I wasted roughly $8000 of money I received for my injuries on this nonsense. What a waste of part of the money I received due to having my life ruined. Dr. Marten was my doctor. First, I went in for a consult & met a lady who looked me over & assured me given my previous fitness level & fat placement they'd be able to make me look great. But when Dr. Marten cane in, his concern was a superficial blood clot in my leg. I had a radiology report stating it was harmless. Despite that, he delayed my procedure by 2 months while I waited for a referral and appointment with a hematologist. In my appt seeking referral, the doctor urged me not to let a doctor who couldn't read a simple radiology report operate on me. At the appt with the hematologist, she says the same thing; "are you sure you want to let someone operate on you that can't read this report." Despite 2 doctor's warning me, I went forward. During my procedure, 2 1/2 liters of fat were removed. For a person who weighed 270 pounds, 40 of which were surely fat, 2 1/2 liters is nothing. In comparison, I read a review where a woman who was 125 pounds had 2 1/2 liters of fat removed. At first I was optimistic and kept listening to them their "give it a whole 6 months" nonsense. I was sure after 30 days I'd been screwed and I have pics to prove it. So I moved to Texas 3 months after my procedure and requested to do my follow ups here. It took them almost 3 months to get me seen in Texas, which means they weren't able to track my progress properly. When I went to my appointment, my 6 months were over & it was clear the operation was bogus. Feedback I got from the care coordinator was that "sometimes doctors only take a little bit of fat out at a time to see how your body reacts; don't worry, we'll fix it", & "As long as you haven't gained 5% of your surgical weight, we'll fix it". So I go into Houston's Sonobello & swiftly get a wake up call. I was basically told that though they were the same company, they didn't have to help me. The Houston doctor was rude, & their coordinator advised me it'd be at the doctor's discretion because 1. They don't like fixing other doctor's mistakes, & 2. The doctor would be working for pennies because my original doctor got full pay. So I step on their scale & I think it said 283 pounds, compared to my post op of 272. I'm thinking "ok great, 11 pounds is definitely not 5% of 272". No such luck. Houston refused to work on me unless I lost all 11 pounds. They assure you fat cells don't regenerate. So if I had my upper/lower abs & more done, there would be no fat in those areas, right? So how can the Houston doc blame me for how my abs & chest look? If I'd gotten what I paid for those areas would look great & I wouldn't be in their office complaining. My belly hangs over from the side, & Ive now got droopy side breasts, which is something I've NEVER had. It's because he sucked a lot out of my chest but didn't suck enough out of the sides. Such BS! If they want to know why I gained 11 pounds they should listen to themselves. Their goal is to have you look in the mirror & like what you see, which in turn will motivate you to do the gym time requires to maintain the look. Well, when a person pays $8000, & looks in the mirror & sees they've been robbed, it has the opposite effect. At any rate, what does it matter because 11 pounds isn't 5% of my surgical weight. I have proof via pics that what they saw isn't a result of the "11 pounds". It's a failed op.”

“Has some serious work done and it turned out beautifully. Is it perfect? Not even close but, considering how my stomach, waist, and back looked before, it looks stellar. I am very pleased with the results and will be going back. The doctor was an older gentleman who was very stoic and kinda sweet. I immediately liked him. The nurses were all very kind and the lady who saw me for my last check in was a peach. I am sure there are people that don’t do their research, have unreasonable expectations, and are naive. The truth is that this is an improvement, not a cure. Yes, it was uncomfortable and yes, there was some pain but three months out, I look amazing and it was worth it. So, kudos to the Sono Bello of Tacoma. I am totally a fan! Hugs to you.”

“I can’t believe this Sonobello isn’t rated higher! I had an ideal experience with my procedure. I had lipo done on my upper and lower abs, waist and below the bra line and found this entire process to exceed my expectations! The staff is great. Very knowledgeable, friendly, funny… I had wonderful results and would recommend them to everyone I know!”

“I rate the customer service, the office environment, the staff, the Doctors, and most importantly, the procedure itself as a 5 out of 5 stars! I found the whole process very easy and user friendly. The procedure and the recovery have been exactly as they professionals at Sono Bello said they would be. The results so far have been what I expected which makes me feel so good about myself. I am inspired to work even harder on my exercise routine and on eating even healthier. I would recommend Sono Bello in Tacoma to anyone :)”
