Save your money and don't do it | Sono Bello review

By my second post surgery appointment I expressed my disappointment with the results. The nurse assured me that it was just swelling. After the swelling went down I was right back where I started and again expressed my disappointment with the nurse. I asked the nurse to have someone from management call me and I never heard from them again. The illusion is the compression garment you need to wear after the surgery. Of course you are going to lose inches because of the fact that everything is compressed but after you go awhile with out the garment you will see the inches come back and come back in other areas of your body. Buyer beware!!! There are no refunds only a discounted price if they have to repeat the procedure. And their easy finance is the Care Credit card which may not be a low interest rate. My bank credit card has a lower rate. Again, BUYER BEWARE!!

Worst place ever! | Sono Bello review

I am writing this review to share my personal experience, these are the hard cold facts of my horrific nightmare procedure done with this Sono Bella office in Harrison, NY. If you’re having any procedure done here please be diligent in researching and/or check all doctors credentials and reviews about this office. My experience is one that I would NEVER go back to them even if they offered me free treatment on anything! My first really bad experience was waiting 2 hours for my pre-op appointment with Dr. Al Hussin (female). My second really bad almost worse than the first experience was my husband and I drove 75 miles one way for my procedure the morning of appointment in traffic over the Tappan Zee Bridge to come to fine out their equipment broke down at that precise moment we showed up! They didn't show any remorse for wasting our time in driving a total of 150 miles round trip... they don't care about you especially when you paid cash in advance! The office is run like a dog and pony show! When I finally reschedule my appointment to get my procedure it wasn’t done right! It was supposed to be upper, lower abdomen and both sides of the hip areas for lipo with lazar technology... Dr. Al Hussin choose to ONLY do lower and hip areas. I had to wait 6 months to get what I paid for to do the upper abdomen and Dr. Al Hussin was horrible to me, while in the procedure room (O.R.) she was making rude remarks about my body, she also was stabbing me and really hurting me badly so much so I screamed in pain and her *** remarks were "oh we must have given this women old pain killers because she's feeling the pain". Bottom line is she was agitated she had to do what she got paid for 6 months ago and then she didn't do it right after waiting 6 months, my upper abdomen is the SAME as I went in... NOTHING WAS DONE CORRECTLY AFTER THEY MADE ME WAIT 6 MONTHS!! I wish I did my research in this facility, I might have had a better outcome... OR stayed away from this circus!! So do yourself a BIG favor and research everything you can about this office, the doctors, and the staff!!

Customer service failure | Sono Bello review from Overland Park, Kansas

Once I was told to apply and have financing approved for the procedure the price changed another 1000.00 higher and the customer service department was very unprofessional about how they explained it.Once I complained,they no longer had time to resolve the issues and after 2 weeks and still waiting,I am done using them.Its a scam more concerned about money than the procedures. Each time I re complained still wanting the procedure they told me they would return my call from HQ immediately and assist with my concerns. I no longer have faith or trust in the work they do when the almighty dollar is their biggest concern. I do not like negotiation when it comes to medical procedures!!

Sono bello liposuction

I had my lower and upper abdomen and upper back liposuctioned. I was told that I would see results overtime. It has been over a year and I still do not see to much of a change. When I went back for a checkup the nurse made me feel as though I was fat and it was my fault that the change had no taken place. I was upset when I left and have not been back. The GeForce and after pictures shown are a fraud. My stomached is still hanging with fat and i still gave back flab. I still have the marks from the procedure on my upper and lower back. I am very disappointed.

Botched Job and rip off financing | Sono Bello review

I started my procedure with Sono Bello in December of 2015. During the interviewing process I spoke with inception officer got pricing and general answers to questions that I had in regards to the procedure. At that time I asked about my arms and what could be done. The individual that I saw told me that I shouldn't do my arms as it generally doesn't work. I was then introduced to the surgeon after signing contracts and setting up a date and was asked about my arms and told that they did have a procedure that could help me. I did my stomach first and was somewhat skeptical after more than 3 months went by and my stomach appeared to be lumpy. It is still lumpy to this day and I am even more ashamed to take my clothes off. My arms never decreased any at all and I was never able to wear most shirts in my size as previous. I always had to buy my shirts to fit my arms and still do. The lumps in my stomach are so noticeable that I don't dare go without some sort of toning garment under my clothes. I have gotten so depressed that I have started eating and gaining weight again. To add insult to injury Sono Bello set me up with a financing company whom I have been paying 100.00 on a 3000.00 dollar bill and still in a year owe them 2700.00 a fleecing of my finances to boot. The company is HC processing so please run if they try and introduce them to you as a finance company this company is located in Springdale Arkansas. Don't bother with calling them as they are very arrogant in the manner in which they speak to you. My other contract has been sold to another company with almost no warning. So not only have I been permanently damaged physically, I have mental scars as well.

Misleaded | Sono Bello review from Tampa, Florida

I went to Sono Bello in Tampa Fl on Boy Scout Rd. and was greeted by the patient consultant who informed me that the work I wanted done would be perfect for me. I went in for a chin/jow line lipo. I was approved for credit for an amount above and beyond what i needed so the consultant helped me decide that it would be cheaper if I did other procedures together with the one i had gone in for. This way they could do a "group" type discount. I elected to also have my tummy/abdomen done. She told me that with my skin quality, the only thing i would need to do is wear a compression garment after surgery and BOTH areas would snap back great. She took a $100 deposit at that time ($60 on my credit card & $40 in cash). I arrived 3 days later to meet with my surgeon who shook his head and told me that there was no way my skin would "snap back" with just the compression garment. It would constitute additional type surgery (which they don't preform there). I was upset but appreciated his honesty, altho I was upset, as was he, with the misleading initial consult I had giving me "Pipe Dreams" of what to expect...which would not be the case. After the surgeon consulted the practice manager, the agreed to refund my $100, but it would be sent to me, along with a credit on my Visa card. It has now been 9 day and I have yet to see EITHER refund. I have made several calls and am always told it is being processed thru corporate. NOT to mention, I received an email for the patient consultant i initially saw who said "Oh no, i should have scheduled you with the OTHER doctor. He is much better at achieving the results you want. Why don't you come back in and speak with him". My guess is, she works under commission and was upset that she was losing hers. I declined the re-visit for obvious reasons and informed that i was STILL waiting on my refund. She said she would send a message to the practice manage. Now today, i call AGAIN and am told that they hope to have the visa refund processed today, but the $40 that i paid in cash would take at least 2 WEEKS for me to receive. It has to go to corporate and be processed and signed off and blah blah blah. Very disappointed ALL THE WAY AROUND. :(

Venus legacy treatment dont work | Sono Bello review from Sacramento, California

Venus legacy treatment dont work - Sono Bello review
I had venus legacy treatment done on my arms for 10 treatments at the sacramento area in Howe ave on July 16 2016. This treatment was recommended to me by a consultant name Naomi. She said its half price $2,500 and it will not get offered for awhile. I fell for it and paid her cash. After the ten treatment did not see any results, my arms are still fat. I was not happy so the manager gave me 4 free treatment and still did not see results. On the very last treatment, the nurse took pictures of my arms but did not measure my arms. I think some of the nurses lack training. I told the nurse that im not happy and she said she will let her boss to contact me. Nobody contacted me and i felt like they only want your money but dont care about their patient. I will not recommend sono bello in sacramento california to anyone. I just got ripped off for a simple treatment. Just look at the picture i posted and see for yourself.

If you are unhappy with flabby arms, you need to start weight training. Women lose muscle faster than men and when you lose if, flab replaces it. Forget the dumbell clinic and start working out with dumbells.

File a Small Claims action and take them to task for misrepresentation. You could get some money back or at least file a complaint with court records.

Staff was very nice. But i am not satisfied at all.

I expected something different with the liposuction. Tighter skin no flab. I have uneven spots. Back rolls still there but not as bad.

They actually misled people. The doctor i had left and went back to his home town. I would not recommend them all. All they do is take pictures and try to convince you that you would look 100% better not 60% better.

I was thinking about going back to do the Venus treatment. But I am hearing that's a flop to.

It I exercise as the told me as the months went pass. I look nothing how the claim I would looking.

Sono Bello needs to address their consumers with complaints........

Review #855909 by anonymous. I am retracting the date of my surgery. It was 09/28/2015. Sorry about that typo. I am now a year and 1 month post surgery. I hate my body. What I have noticed is that the areas where fat was removed, fat has settled in the areas below. For example, I my upper abs/bra roll done. I kept noticing about 6 months after my long sleeve shirts were tight in my upper arms. And my jeans that I wore the day I had the surgery done over a year ago are skin tight in the upper leg area!!! I been reading posts and blogs for months and talking with women who have had the same procedure as myself. Guess what? They are complaining about the same thing!!!!!!! I knew it wasn't just me!!! I made appointment to go in and show Dr. Volk what has been happening. He just had a half *** grin on his face. He said lets see how much you weigh. He had me get on the scale and said I've gained weight and that's why I look like this. Dr. Volk said , lose some weight and come back and I will de-bulk your abdomen. I'm like..I want my money back!!!!!! I told him I am going to tell everyone how I have been mislead as to what my results would be. See what they purposely do not tell you is that the women in the commercials and the pictures have had many procedures done to achieve the look that you see. The average women as myself after spending$8000.00 will see minimal to no change. Infact you will see change,but in my case negative change. Now what am I to do?? I am not going to stop until I get my money back.. If there is an Attorney out there whom thinks they can be of some help with my case post your information. And as for Sono Bello. How can you just"ROB" women like myself of who have been lured into your scam???? When I get my money back I will stop and move on with my life and be happy with my body the way it is... I will be waiting to hear from Sono Bello. So stay tuned, it's not over.

I too had spent 9k on a facelift and having the bags removed under my eyes.I was left with a huge sagging scar under chin.A paralyzed lip.Hair sewed under skin causing chronic problems.Ears came unattached.One side of face looking 5 years older than the other side..I look horrible. I look 10 years older.Scars under my eyes.I will have to spend another 6k just to fix what they screwed up.Feeling robbed!!.My self confidence down the drain and suffering from depression because of it.Lost trust in men.Dr.Chen and Dr.Lesavoy should be ashamed.They didn't care about me or my well being..I wish they would take responsibility for how they destroyed me.
