I have had the best experience seeing Rachel for a number of things over the past couple of months. She has been attentive to every concern I have whether it’s knew or correcting something that wasn’t caused by her. She has a great way of meeting your expectations of a certain “look” or “feel” while also encompassing her professional opinion in a way that doesn’t undermine your own vision; this approach she takes melds her professional advise and your vision together to give you a result that’s better than you could have imagined. One of the best aspects about this approach is that her recommendations aren’t the ones that are the most expensive, but the ones that you actually need. I have been to offices that only recommended the highest cost solution and felt like I was just treated as another sale for their bottom line. The trust that I have developed with her is rare, and I will follow her wherever she goes for any filler, Botox, MOXY, laser, and other treatments I may want in the future. The rest of the staff however, are just as amazing. From the moment you walk in and are greeted by the front desk to the seeing the other staff in passing while you’re headed to your appointment room, you are welcomed in such a way it’s like seeing old friends. This is a wonderful establishment and highly recommended to anyone and everyone.

I had Sculptra done with Dr. Lopes and she is the best injector! I didn’t have any pain with the deep injections and I can tell that the Sculptra will work out great for my volume loss in my cheeks. And her office staff was so caring, Brook (her assistant)was very informative and super lovely and Rain made me feel so at home there. Thanks so much to you Dr. Lopes and your lovely staff!

Grab a drink, this is a long one! I have dealt with facial hair for almost all of my adult life and I almost almost 40. It was embarrassing to have someone stand close to me or touch my face because of the hair. Finally, I made the choice to get laser hair removal and found Cosmetic Surgery Center based on Google reviews! I requested an appointment online in December 2022 and received a phone call to finalize the appointment and understand what I was looking for. I arrived at my appointment and met Rachel. She gave me a price quote and treated my face and neck for the first time, that day. For about 8 months I have been getting the laser every 4-ish weeks. My neck has NEVER looked better! When I tell you it has changed my life, I am serious! It is the best investment and I have Rachel to thank for my new found confidence! Since the laser I have conquered my fears and got a new tattoo, a Brazilian wax and new brows. It has truly changed how I feel about myself. At first I was amazed that I didn't have to shave daily, now I go daysssss without a single hair and no makeup to cover my 5 o'clock shadow. I am pretty sure my face is now 95% hair free. There are a few stubborn hairs that won't die but compared to my full beard when I started, those don't even bother me. Rachel is nice, we have great convos and she is quick! She has also helped me remove a few pesky skin tags I had on my neck. She is truly a gem. I look forward to getting more treatments here. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!! Meghan T

I felt very compelled to write to your office this morning concerning the treatments that I received yesterday at your office. I was a patient of Dr. Hugo’s years ago and decided to change cosmetic surgery centers during a transition time. I started my treatments at McDaniels Surgery at that time and have been going there ever since. You ran a special a while back with Representatives of Dysport, so I decided to try this new Botox replacement at your office and had good results. I then made another appointment to come back to receive Dysport again on July 24, 2023 at 1pm. Your office called and actually stated that the young lady whom I was supposed to have an appointment with, was not working on Mondays. I stated my week was tight and could I get another technician for the same timeframe? They accommodated me immediately with Rachel Strehle. I hope I am spelling her name correctly, this was such a blessing in disguise. To my astonishment, she was amazing. She was super informative, professional and compassionate. I have to say, in all the years that I have received filler and botox, never has someone taken so much quality time and explained procedures in the way that she did. She listened to my concerns and gave me options to consider. To my surprise, I did not bruise at all, which is rarely the case. I have always come home with bruises and blood spots from these treatments in the past, so this was quite amazing. Not only did I not bruise, but my skin (face) looks the best it ever has after having treatments like these. Rachel Strehle is definitely a huge asset to the Cosmetic Surgery Center, and I plan to switch over completely. I couldn’t be more satisfied with my results, thank you.

Dr JoAnne Lopes and her staff are excellent. They listened to what I wanted and were responsive and answered all of my questions. They never made me feel pressured to have a particular treatment or procedure done. They were great at giving me realistic expectations regarding my recovery and post- op results. I had: facelift, neck lift, blepharoplasty ( bags under my eyes) and CO2 laser treatment. And what was so amazing I had no PAIN. I am sure everyone is different on pain but i had none. Thank you Dr Lopes again. Very please with my results.

On 4/7 I had a labiaplasty performed by Dr. Lopes and I could not be happier with the results and the whole experience with Dr. Lopes and her entire staff. Labiaplasty was not an option I was aware of until the past year and due to the sensitive nature I was a little embarrassed but Dr. Lopes and staff made me feel so comfortable and assured that it’s not as uncommon as I thought. The procedure its self was quick and painless and recovery a breeze. I am so thankful to Dr. Lopes and staff and highly recommend them for any cosmetic/plastic surgical needs.

Are You a Candidate for Abdominoplasty with Dr. JoAnne Lopes?

Abdominoplasty, commonly known as a “tummy tuck,” is a transformative procedure that can reshape and redefine the abdominal area. It is particularly well-suited for men who are looking to eliminate excess skin or fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. Below are some considerations that might make you a suitable candidate for abdominoplasty with Dr. Lopes:

  • Persistent Abdominal Fat: If you have stubborn fat in the abdominal region that isn’t responding to regular exercise or a healthy diet, abdominoplasty could be a solution.

  • Sagging or Loose Skin: Men who have lost significant weight or experienced changes in body shape due to aging may have excess or sagging skin. Abdominoplasty can tighten and remove this skin, resulting in a more toned appearance.

  • Desire for a More Contoured Physique: If you are in pursuit of a flatter, firmer abdomen that enhances your overall physique, this procedure can help achieve your aesthetic goals.

  • Good Overall Health: As with any surgical procedure, being in good overall health is essential. This includes not having any medical conditions that could impair healing and being at or near your ideal body weight.

  • Realistic Expectations: Understanding what the procedure can and cannot accomplish and having realistic expectations about the results is key to satisfaction with abdominoplasty.

  • Commitment to Healthy Lifestyle: Continued commitment to a healthy lifestyle, including proper diet and exercise, is crucial for maintaining the results of abdominoplasty.

If you identify with one or more of these points, abdominoplasty with Dr. Lopes may be an appropriate option for you. During your consultation, Dr. Lopes will conduct a comprehensive evaluation, discuss your specific goals and concerns, and determine if this procedure aligns with your unique needs. Her specialized understanding of the male body and her personalized approach ensure that the treatment is tailored to achieve the best possible outcomes for men seeking abdominoplasty.
