I recently had a facelift with Dr Vagotis and am so pleased. She took time with me at her free consult and answered all of my questions. I am so happy as now my outside looks like how i feel on the inside, youthful and vibrant. The staff was great and welcoming at both her office and the surgery center. I would recommend her to anyone who is considering and face work done.
Bad Experience – I went to Dr. Vagotis because I had small saggy breasts after breast feeding. I wanted natural and youthful looking breasts. I ended up with large saggy breasts with large, jagged, uneven nipples with extreme scaring. You could see and feel the implants. Dr. Vagotis operated on me a second time to fix her first work and it got worse. I ended up having my breast fixed by Dr. Bengtson. The results Dr. Bengtson delivered are amazing. My breasts now look and feel natural. The nipples were moved up to the correct location and the nipples were reduced to the correct size. The nipples are now round again and all of the scaring is gone. The original implants were replaced. Dr. Vagotis over promised and under delivered. Dr. Bengtson under promised but over delivered.
Great Restylane Injector! – The staff is very nice and welcoming. The office is beautiful. I sought Dr. Vagotis for Restylane under the eye and we talked about why and how Restylane is better for under the eye. She carefully injected , took a step back to see if I needed more and would add it. She has a really good eye for aesthetics. I am very satisfied w/ my results. I will be returning for touch ups when it is time. highly recommend it.
Exceptional From A To Z – Everything was exceptional A to Z! (outstanding facilities and care) Thank you!!
talented, caring and honest surgeon – I went to Dr. Vagotis for a consultation to see if anything could be done about my 25 year old silicone implants. One had ruptured because of the very old fashioned way of trying to manually break up a contracture (extremely painful and uneffective-a different practice in town), and both were misshapen.
They were also above the muscle. Dr. Vagotis was honest and explained it's sometimes difficult to get implants under the muscle after so many years because the muscle thins out under the weight of the implants and there is little left to lift. She must have worked hard because she did a great job-they look very natural and are indeed under the muscle...and I have not formed any more contractures (knock on wood!!!-please understand, I do not blame my previous doctor for the contractures-I realize they are an unfortunate reaction some people have to the implants).
Dr. Vagotis explained to me all the possible outcomes and gave me a superior result. I am so happy I found her and would highly recommend her skills
Dr. Vagotis is WONDERFUL – I've been to Dr Vagotis for more than one procedure and I've found the whole experience exceptional!! I am in the health care field and find all her staff (in the office and surgical center) kind and professional. I know of no bad experiences by myself or friends (who are also nurses) that I've referred to Dr. Vagotis. I think the previous reviews on Dr. Vagotis are coming from one bad perceived experience and if this individual had a real case, he/she wouldn't be just on the internet writing a review. The person who wrote the previous posted review needs to understand that this is slander but hides behind an alias. PLEASE!! Step up!
AVOID FRANCINE VAGOTIS AVOID AVOID AVOID – I unfortunately went to francine vagotis md to make my skin smoother. She recommened CO2 laser resurfacing. I now have a line around my face and permanent pigment loss over my entire face. What she didn't tell me is that the CO2 laser damages the melanocytes (pigment producing cells). When I complained about the lack of pigment she would not see me. She would only schedule an appointment at her skin care clinic. The girl there said I looked better than most patients!! I demanded to see vagotis, she was not happy and yelled at me this is what you look like after the CO2 laser but look at how smooth your skin is. I felt like she was trying to bully me into liking this new deformity. I have been to several doctor to try and fix this but the damage is permanent.
This is not the first time she's disfigured a patient with the CO2 laser. I've talked to two patients she injured before me. And all of the doctors I've been to for this have said they've seen her patients. They wonder why she's doing this.
I now apply self tanning bronzer twice a day and wear lots of makeup to try and hide the line around my face and the lack of pigment.
I wish I'd never met Francine Vagotis MD. AVOID AVOID AVOID
