My wife and I have had smartlipo and botox done by Dr. Barnes. First of all, he is very personable, honest and ethical. We have observed him to be a perfectionist who is not only a surgeon, but a gifted artisan. The atmosphere in the office is warm, friendly, relaxed and professional.
I (male) had smartlipo done in the chin and neck/jawline area. The results have been nothing short of excellent. I have found smartlipo to be very minimally invasive, and does not require being "put under". Pain wise, it is pretty much like going to the dentist, not bad at all. I liked the results so much, I went in and had Dr. Barnes do my pecs, love handles and stomach! I love the results, and I look ripped! I have always worked out, but at 43, I had some resistant fat in the chin/neck, stomach and pecs. Those areas now look chiseled. I look and feel 33.
Dr. Barnes has also worked on my wifes knees and arms. He also filled in an "indentation/hole" from a previous non smartlipo job done by another surgeon. He performed fat grafting into the area, and the results look awesome! He was able to utilize the fat taken from the areas mentioned above. He is a great repair artist, and his fat transfer work is impressive.
I will also add that he teaches smartlipo to other doctors. My wife and I would fully recommend Doctor Barnes to anyone, and we have found smartlipo to be great due to the skin tightening factor, and very rapid recovery.
