I have had a wonderful experience with SonoBello. My lifestyle had changed and I wasn't ready for it. I went from living in the city to living in the suburbs and working from home. I didn't realize the impact that it would have on my physique. Before you know it I was carrying weight in all the undesirable areas. And although I worked out 6 times a week, had a personal trainer and tracked my food those excess stubborn areas just stayed put. And then I got pregnant, and even though I only gained 25 pounds during my pregnancy, the pregnancy did a number on my abdominal area (for obvious reasons). I was starting to get sad about my appearance and how I looked in the mirror and I finally decided that I didn't deserve it and neither did my husband!I had my initial consult with Bethany and she was (and continued to be) amazing. Warm, Welcoming, Accomodating are just a few words I could use to describe her. She understood my issues and I didn't feel ashamed or judged which is a big factor. She seemed very excited to have my business and made me feel like a person not just a customer.I decided to have all of my problem areas taken care of - legs, arms and stomach, hips, waist.. It was scheduled in two procedures....The first procedure was like a whirlwind because I didn't know what to expect. I was really nervous! But the staff made me feel very comfortable and at ease. With that being said the procedure itself and the recovery was not easy for me, but I knew it would not be going in because I have a low pain tolerance. The second procedure was easier because I knew what to expect but the procedure itself on my stomach was quite difficult. However, my nurse Tamara was the sweetest and she held my hand and tried to keep my mind off of it. Dr Sobrino was also so gentle and kind walking me through the process trying to make me feel comfortable. I felt so bad for it hurting so much because he was so nice and I know he felt bad also. Coreen and Jackie were other nurses I had while at at the clinic and they were both so amazing as well. It has been 1 month post op on my outer thighs, waist, hips and arms....and wow! What a difference and I am still considered to be a little swollen. I can finally see those triceps and biceps I have worked so hard to build, and my legs look great as well. I am only about a week post op with my inner thighs and stomach - I am still swollen and bruised ... but I do see the improvement and shape so I can't wait to see how its going to look when that subsides. Its a beautiful shape, Dr Sobrino is also an artist - He sees beyond the fat removal and looks at your body in its entirety to give you a great shape. I also loved the personal touch that the doctor gave by following up on his cell phone with me that night. It was really nice and thoughtful. Also the nurse follow up a day or two later was great also. Althought my physical experience was quite painful, I would do it all over again. On mothers day, it was the first time in a long time I was able to walk out of my house feeling confident and not so ashamed....also not dressing to cover all those problem areas but I wore what I wanted and felt great. That makes such a difference in my life! I can't wait for the final results it can't come soon enough!!!
I can’t say enough wonderful things about Sono Bello. Having had traditional lipo over 25 years ago I new pretty much what to expect. I also worked with an Austin plastic surgeon in the early “90’s and had assisted in more liposuctions than I can count. My first lipo was on my legs; they were very disproportionate from the rest of my body. I am relatively small and just couldn’t get rid of them no matter how hard I tried. When I was young I use to dream that I could just cut off half my leg and the problem would be solved. Even better, they invented lipo. I had a great result back then; legs stayed in shape and I even received compliments years later about how great my legs were. Who would have thought? I only tell you this part because I want you to know it truly lasts. I chose Sono Bello to have my tummy and lower back done in March of this year. I was so curious after reading all the reviews; could Sono Bello Austin be that amazing. I am here to tell you it is. From the moment Rachael greets you at the desk, to your consultation with Bailey and then of course Nurse Lindsey who you will meet the day of surgery; you feel so special and cared for. The reason I chose Sono Bello Austin over a Private Practice Plastic surgeon was bottom line price. I know several area Cosmetic surgeons and would have been okay with most of them. However, having two children in college Sono Bello made it affordable without selling my first born. Why would I pay more if I can get the same (or even better) care as well as the same or better outcome? For me it was a no brainer. I can’t be happier with my results and the post op care I have received. Dr. Bekanich was who I chose for my procedure, she has a private practice in Round Rock and her partner had done surgery on my son. It was fate that she happened to be a physician practicing at Sono Bello.So, don’t put it off any longer, go in. See for yourself. You won’t be disappointed. Liposuction truly can change your life. It did mine and I am so looking forward to the new me this summer.
I have been super happy with Sono Bello - on all levels. It has only been a few weeks since my surgery so I can't really comment on the final results yet. I'll be sure to update my review at 3 months when I feel like things have settled and I'm fully healed. But, so far - I couldn't be happier. The staff is fabulous. They are ALL friendly, helpful, compassionate, encouraging and very professional. It's an awkward situation - getting liposuction! But, they make it as painless as possible and you actually begin to enjoy the process and look forward to your office visits! Kattie has been my nurse and I LOVE her. She is great! She goes over every detail and makes sure you know exactly what is going on and what to expect. LOVE her!Dr. Erello was my doctor and I could not be more impressed! I was very anxious about having a male doctor for this procedure but he is amazing. His manner is so comforting and reassuring. He made me feel completely at ease and he showed such respect and compassion. I am super impressed with him.Like I said, it's only been a few weeks since my surgery. I am very happy with the results so far - but I understand that it is a work in progress and that more changes are going to happen. I had a bulging belly and always looked about 6 months pregnant! No more! My tummy is nice and flat and my clothes fit so much better. I had other areas treated but the belly was my biggest problem. I am very encouraged with the immediate results and look forward to further healing.I would recommend Sono Bello in Austin,Texas to anyone that wants to reshape their body.
If anyone is thinking about Sonobello, my question to you is this: Why wait any longer?Each individual at Sonobello is very dedicated and professional. It’s all about the patient, from the time you walk into Sonobello, you do your initial consultation, to the prep, to the Surgery and including the follow up visits, your dignity is protected through each and every step. You as the individual states the end results that you are interested in, and the desired end results that you are desiring to achieve. As the patient, you are allowed to pick the Doctor, the procedure that you want. There is no high pressure sales. In the initial consultation, you are provided the ability to select the Doctor that you desire, a bio sheet on the Doctor is provide to better assist you in your selection. This is indeed a minimal evasive procedure. I personally cannot Thanks the professionals at Sonobello enough for the change in my life. I hold them in the highest of esteem. The Venus Treatments are absolutely FABULSTIC as well. You can search to the sky’s limit and you will never find a more dedicated, professional, staff that takes so much PRIDE and HONOR in their career field. When you get up each morning following the procedure and you see the SMILE that has been missing for so long, you too will be wondering, why did I wait? I highly recommend Sonobello hands down and above all others.
So my experience at Sonobello was extremely pleasant. The front office ladies were a delight and extremely courteous to me. The next stop was the consultant, and she was infectious. She was sincere, motivated, and made the entire process a breeze. Step three was the clinical side of the process which put my mind at ease. The clinical staff to include the nurses and Doctor are top notch. Dr. Okpaku was my surgeon and I really can't thank him enough. My procedure was the Trisculpt laser lipo on three areas (lower abdomen and love handles). After leaving the military and gaining 60 pounds I had enough of being big. It took a year but I lost all the weight. However, I did seem to have more permanent damage than I had realized. My love handles were impossibly stubborn, riddled with stretch marks, no amount of working out would change that now. Cosmetic surgery became the only option to regain the body I had lost. I am extremely excited for the future, because I know that with patience, I'll see my old self again.
From the initial consultation through the entire recovery time, my experience with sono bello was fantastic. I am a 58 year old female who wanted to reduce the "spare tire" I've carried for 36 years since the birth of my son. A bad C-section left me with scar tissue and years of yo-yo dieting left me with a non-existent waistline. I got tired of never being able to wear clothes with a waistline. I was realistic, though, that I would not have the body of a 20-year old when the surgery was over. It's now been 3 months. The improvements are amazing. I've gone down 2 waist sizes and anticipate going down another. The aestheticians, Michelle and Lisette, worked with me after surgery to help break up fatty lumps and I am so please with the progress they have made! I still have a ways to go, but I am optimistic. Thank you, Sono Bello, for reducing my waistline self-consciousness -- no more muffin top for me!
