Pacific Lipo
Well, i'm back to write my 2nd review for my 2nd procedure I had done at Pacific Lipo. Again, Rod and the staff (Stefani, Becky, Leticia & the rest!) at PL are amazing!! They are all very attentive, caring and are with you every step of the way. They are available after hours (after you've had surgery) with a direct number to Rod in case you have any questions or concerns and the girls are always available during office hours if you need to call in.My 2nd area (which had way more fat than my 1st) is coming around nicely. Rod had advised me that with the amount of fat that was there, there would be more swelling and a little bit longer healing time. No worries, I'm patient because I know the end result will be good. While I'm still in the healing phase, I must say I already see a difference. I make sure to follow all of Rod's instructions in between appointments to make sure that I'm properly taking care of the area and massaging as much as I need to get the best possible results. I'm thrilled with my progress and I can't wait until the area is fully healed. The procedure itself, again, was minimal in regards to discomfort, the first couple of weeks I was tender and a little sore, but that is to be expected. Nothing major though, I was still able to go to work (I have a desk job) and do my daily usual things with the exception of any exercise per Rods directions. All in all, I'm thrilled and ready for my next procedure at PL - I'm just waiting for Rod to give me the green light!!PL is the place to go not only for great results, but for honest advice and a staff that really cares for their patients. :)

When we finally got a Dr.'s referral for physical therapy for my mother-in-law, I was afraid it was too late. She was lethargic, uninterested in life, and had fallen several times. Not only did she get a physical therapist, but she also got a nurse who checked on her weekly and other services. Within two weeks of the physical therapy, it was as if my mother-in-law had gone back in time 10 years. For month's, years even, Mom wouldn't leave the house. She had no interest in her great grandchild and was angry at anyone who asked her to do anything, including joining us for dinner. I really thought it was the beginning of the end and tried to prepare my husband for his mother's passing.After a few months of therapy, Mom is going to parties and going out to eat. This holiday, she was back to being the life of the party when we took her to her niece's house.The PT taught the caregivers how to show Mom the exercises and gave them a pamphlet with pictures and a schedule to check off which exercises she did. Not only has my mother-in-law's life been extended, but, more importantly, her quality of life is something that makes her want to get up in the morning and enjoy this season of her life.I thank People First for giving us back a woman who is the family matriarch and a woman who loves life. The care they give is priceless.

I cannot express my gratitude to the staff enough. They were the nicest women and made sure that I was informed and comfortable. One of the nurses sat and talked to me for half an hour before my surgery to keep me calm. The surgery center was clean, organized and very comfortable. Dr. Kincaid did an amazing job. I had little pain and I was back up in no time! The office called and checked on me often to make sure I was doing ok! I followed up with Dr. Kincaid and he was just as attentive after my surgery as he was before. I was not just a customer to him or his office. I am now more confident in clothes and swimsuits and also in my marriage. When you feel good without clothes on there is a closer connection between you and your spouse. I went from absolutely a flat chest to a 34D. I went under the muscle with a gel implant. They feel real and look amazing. I often get asked if they are real. Dr. Kincaid is great! He is exactly what you want in a surgeon.

I am a 29 year old mother of 3 little ones, so when I decided that it was time to do a little something for myself I wanted to be with a surgeon that understood how important safety was to me. Like most people I went and had consultations with a couple different doctors. I found that the other doctors that I met with where only concerned with the size that I wanted. Most of them did not listen to anything I had to say and just kept pushing me to go bigger. When I sat down with Dr. Kincaid he asked me why I wanted this procedure and if it was my decision to be there. I thought that was very professional and he was putting me first. He then spoke a whole bunch about the risks and the background of himself and his team that would be working on me. I decided to wait another year to get the procedure done and when I was ready there was no doubt that I would be back in Dr. Kincaids office. I showed back up and we got the surgery scheduled.

This week I had the lipo procedure done at Pacific Lipo on my inner thighs and I am SO EXCITED! My inner thighs have always bothered me because they rub together. It has only been 2 days and the rubbing is GONE! I've been working out really hard lately and even ran my first half marathon a couple months ago. Now I feel much more confident doing these activities knowing that the bulge on my inner thighs is gone. I am so grateful for the team at Pacific Lipo that helped me and ready to get my first swim suit!--> Now It has been one month since my procedure with Pacific Lipo and I love my new legs. I just love them. There is no rubbing between my thighs. I look at my legs now and I feel good, I really do. I feel good. I put on some jeans yesterday and there was NO bulk any more. They were skinny jeans and I felt sexy.Thank you to Rod... there are no words for how grateful I am. =)

I came to Pacific Lipo after my appointment with a different practice had been canceled. On very short notice they did all they could to squeeze me in on the schedule. The staff was more than friendly and extremely helpful. The office was very professional. I finally made my way to my visit and was pleasantly suprised with the honesty and genuine care exhibited by the medical director, Rod. He advised me that my situation was not best suited for lipo. I was paid in full and ready to go, but his honest opinion stopped me from making what could have been a huge mistake. No other doctor cared enough to keep it real with me. I was a little sad and disappointed that I couldn't move forward with a nip and sip, but I'm glad things worked out the way they did. I would definitely recommend Rod, Stephanie, Letty, Becky and the whole practice to anyone considering having lipo done! :)

My surgery was performed by Dr. Kincaid in June 2011. In preparation for that day, I interviewed several board certified surgeons who were well credentialed, and who possessed the confidence of the peers as well as their patients but in addition to that, Dr. Kincaid impressed me with his approach: not one of boasting how young I would look - but repeatedly suggesting that he could bring a freshness to my face and suggested that after surgery, I would smile again when I looked at my reflection. During and after the procedure, Dr. Kincaid and his incredible staff were solicitous of my comfort and safety and those with an experiential point of view detailed what to expect so that I was never left to wonder if I was healing properly. I have recommended Dr. Kincaid’s team of professionals as the most skilled, empathetic, and kind one could possibly find.

I'm not a yelper but I had to write a review. I just had my procedure done a few weeks ago. The whole experience was amazing and wonderful.The numbing part was definitely the most difficult.I was really nervous and anxious, but when I met Rod, he guided me through the whole procedure which made me feel comfortable. I noticed results immediately, even with the swelling. Rod was exemplary professional, attentive and caring. I'm still in the healing phase and there's definitely a big difference. I'm thrilled and excited with my progress. Rod may God bless the works of your hands. You're very much appreciated.The girls were friendly and amazing. Letty, made sure I was comfortable and well cared for the entire time.Joyce.

David I. Levy, MD
A few years back, Dr. Levy performed two embolization procedures to reduce the size of an AVM in my head in order to make gamma knife treatment possible. In doing so, he shut off two aneurysms, which cured me of daily headaches that I had suffered since childhood.Dr. Levy is both a great doctor, as well as a phenomenal human being. Case in point, a friend of mine was recently in need of a second opinion. She had gone numb on one side of her body. The neurologists that she had seen could not identify the cause of her symptoms. I sent an email to Dr. Levy asking for help. Not only did he respond, but he provided a name and contact information on another doctor for her to see.

My experience at Pacific Lipo was absolutely wonderful! The staff is incredible! Stefani is so caring and answered all my concerns about the procedure and gave me the perfect schedule date and time. Rod Davis is by far the most talented professional physician I have ever met! He really knows exactly what is needed to obtain the perfect results and when you meet with him you can talk to him about your concerns and he realistically will tell you what can be accomplished with Lipo! The procedure was painless and the recovery time was minimal. I am extremely happy with the way my upper arms turned out. Thank you Pacific Lipo!
Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
