Feb 14th, 2014- Slimlipo

I am a patient of Dr. Varano. On February 12th of 2014 I had SlimLipo on my stomach, and back. What a great experience I had with his staff and the doctor himself. They made me comfortable made sure I was in no pain during the procedure and made me feel like I was not just a patient. I felt very well cared for. The procedure was not painful at all. I would recommend him to anyone. I still have a ways to go postop but I am confident that my procedure will keep me happy for a very long time. Thanks Dr. Varano and Staff for making my feel good about myself again.

I visited Dr. Varano concerning the dietprogram he offers (HCG) and, also after loosing 24 pounds, for laser liposuction. Since I was 10 years old I have struggled with my weight and have been on every diet plan you can imagine. I had visited doctors, nutrionists, therapists, everyone I could find dealing with loosing weight. During this time I also had more weight problems due to other medical problems. Some doctors had told me to give up trying to loose weight with my medical issues, but I just could not-especially with my family's medical history. I found Dr. Varano's information at the Pentagon City Mall and decided to meet for a free consultation and do some research on his techniques. After meeting with him and the nurse in charge of the HCG diet I decided to try it. What the diet promised was too good to be true, but I still wanted to try. At the end I had lost 24 pounds and 5 months later I still have not gained the weight back. The nurse was incredibly supportive and helpful. She had also been through the diet and told me what had personally worked for her and what had not. After the weight lose I wanted to also try the laser liposuction for my arms and my stomoch (two areas I had never been able to see much difference in, even after all of the hours I had worked out with trainers). From the first time I met with Dr. Varano he had been very honest with me about what to expect. When I had first met with him I was over my BMI so he did not recommend the procedure as it would not have made as much of a difference as when I was at my BMI. Years before I had undergone liposuction (not laser) and, not only did it not work well and I gained the weight back quickly, but I had numerous medical problems afterwards. I found out years later that it would not have been recommended with my medical problems and weight to have tried liposuction then. This is why it was especially good to hear Dr. Varano be honest and not out to make just money off his patients. He really does want to help them. It has only been a few weeks after the laser liposuction and I am so incredibly happy with the results already! I have been telling everyone who has expressed interests in dieting and/or liposuction to contact Dr. Varano. He and his staff are wonderful and I am happy to refer them!!

Dr. Varano has been keeping me fresh with mini enhancements for several years. He always explains the procedures in detail and also gives me realistic expectations on the results I should expect. So I was thrilled when I asked him if laser liposuction was something that could help with my "bat wings" and my "love handles" and he replied yes. Being just over 60, I had no aspirations to be a super model but I was hoping to see some results. The results are spectacular. I am already wearing smaller clothes and my bat wings are virtually gone. The procedure was relatively painless and the recovery was as expected -- two lazy days around the house. I love Dr. Varano's ethics and interaction with me. Dr. Varano has a customer forever.

Excellent results and care with Dr V I normally do not write reviews for physicians on line however, the exceptional service and results from Dr. Varanos office prompted me to write this. I consulted with Dr. Varano for laser liposuction several weeks before the surgery, he took the time to explain the entire procedure. He put me at ease as I was very ambivalent about doing the surgery. Everything he said was true, It was relatively painless and I was OK the next day. He was very professional with his follow up and called me personally to make sure everything was OK. Bottom line the results are spectacular. It is approximately two months later and I look great. I have shrunk several pant sizes and there is minimal scarring. I would recommend Dr Varano to anyone considering laser liposuction without hesitation. It works - I look great thanks Dr Varano!!!

Very Pleased with everything!! I have had two procedures at this office. I researched a lot of offices doing cosmetic procedures and I found this office to be very clean and Dr. Drew and his assistant Allison to be very professional. I had Botox injections for my forehead which helped decrease lines of stress dramatically but not make me look "fake". Dr Drew made my forehead look very relaxed and natural. I also received laser treatment for my face and am very pleased with the results. Dr. Drew was great with follow-up and answered my calls and e-mails so quickly. All in all I have had amazing care at this office and plan to have other procedures at this office in the future.

Happy with the service and staff I had the pleasure of receiving treatments by Dr. Varano and his staff last month, The office is beautiful, clean and accessible. He and his staff are very pleasant and cordial. I felt very comfortable and will be going back for future treatments. Dr Varano was very knowledgeable about all the procedures they perform and was able to tailor my treatment to fit my needs. I have recommended his practice to my friends and to any potential clients.

worst place . beware No Star at all. this is the worst place to go for lazer . I urge everybody to take my advice seriously. 2 years ago i started with them and they gave me an agreement of 4 sessions per $ 950 each to treat full body and 2 sessions for $760 each and anything after that for $200 per session . the nurse wrote this agreement on a paper for me. today after almost 2 years and after taking all the big money ( $950 is a lot of money for one session , today you can see deals for $440 for a session. )as i mentioned after taking the big money and when i came to the $200 session , dr varano started making story that i should pay more for the session and he wants money by hour .his secretary told me i have to pay$ 500 for the $200 session, and when i refused he started calling me names and telling me that his nurses were complaining about me and they don t like to treat me .which i totally didn t understand because the nurses were friendly with me all the time for 2 years . and some of them were ...

Great Service for a Great Value! My friend and I both purchased a Groupon deal to MedicalCosmetic Enhancements for laser hair removal. It's a wonderful deal and includes 3 sessions for $185. We scheduled our first session for December 19th- the day of a huge snowstorm. The day before the storm I received 2 phone calls from Medical Cosmetic Enhancements asking if I wanted to reschedule my appointment. The nice lady informed me of their 24 hour cancellation policy but said they were allowing reschedules due to the severity of the storm. In my bravado (and not having even seen the forecast!) I decided to keep my appointment. The next day there was quite a bit of snow. My friend and I made the trek (from Northern VA- about 40 minutes away in good weather). The staff was EXTREMELY accommodating and understanding. We arrived a few minutes late but they were incredibly gracious- they even had fresh baked treats available for us! We met with Dr Varano who took the time to explain the entire procedure and answer any ... Show full review

FABULOUS-HIGHLY RECOMMEND I have known Dr. Drew for over ten years. He is a dedicated professional and the only one I will trust with my face. As a model and actress, I am often in front of the camera and need to always look my best. Dr. Drew has used botox to get rid of my frown lines and has used restylane to sculpt perfect lips! My friends and family comment that I've never looked better. I agree! I am soooo very happy with how I look. Additionally, Dr. Drew goes out of his way to schedule me at a time convenient for me, no matter when it may be. His receptionist, Laura, is so friendly and welcoming. My experience at Dr. Drew's office is always top-notch! I would highly recommend Dr. Drew.

Highly Highly Recommended!! I have known Dr. Verano both personally and professionally for 15 years. Over the years, I have, and continue to have, botex treatements, laser hair removal as well as Fraxel laser performed by Dr. Verano as well as his nurses. They are not only professional but honest and genuine people. Dr. Verano will always give you his honest opinion and never recommend unnecessary treatments. I find that quality alone, something worth noting and one of the many reasons myself and my friends go to Dr. Verano .....we can trust him. More often than not, my friends and I are always calling Dr. Verano asking him to squeeze us in last minute and he is always accommodating...always! Dr. Verano and his staff are amazing!! - Dianne

Highly Recommend! I have been a patient of Dr. Varano for five years. He has performed multiple procedures on me including, Fraxel, Botox and facial fillers. His work is flawless. I'm often mistaken for twenty years younger than my actual age. Not only is Dr. Varano very talented he and his staff have accommodated my busy schedule. I've had to reschedule appointments due to business travel and Dr. Varano and his staff have always been very understanding. He and his staff always take the time to make sure that I am relaxed and comfortable during each procedure. Ive been to other offices where I have felt rushed but not at Dr. Varanos office.I have recommended Dr. Varano to several of my friends and they have all had similar experiences.

I trust him Trust is the most important thing when you enter into doctor patient relationship and that is exactly what I have with Dr. Varano. I have been a patient of his for over 4 years now with no regrets. I have had several different procedures with him including botox, restylne, microfraxel and thermage. I am a 45 year old past sun worshipper, and with his guidance my skin has been transformed!!!! Before I went to Dr. Varano I spent thousands of dollars with another Doctor and saw very little results and even less service because she constantly passed me off to a nurse. I didn't understand real caring service until I put my trust into Dr. Varano's hands. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for his particular services. Susan

Regardless of Procedure - Always Top Drawer! I'm a 62 year old woman who has known Dr. Varano for nearly four years. I've had several procedures done including Restylane, Slim Lipo, and one other procedure. Every procedure has been a complete success. I've never experienced any unnecessary discomfort, never had any difficulty with post procedure complications, and I couldn't be happier. Dr. Varano and his staff are compassionate and considerate. I'm a person who has struggled with my weight all my life and now that I'm middle aged, I've developed some fat around my mid body. Dr. Varano was very sensitive to my feelings and he and his staff made me feel very secure when we talked about Slim Lipo. The Slim Lipo procedure went so smoothly that I was back to work within in a couple of days of the procedure. I am now 2 dress sizes smaller through the waist and 3 months post procedure, have nothing ... Show full review

Love him! I have known Dr. Drew for over 10 years. In all this time, I have never had a negative experience with him. He is one of the most professional people I have ever met in the cosmetic industry. Many other doctors try to make you feel bad about yourself in order to push other (more expensive) procedures that you do not need. You do not have to worry about that with him..he gives an honest opinion that you can trust! And you walk out of his office looking beautiful. He has been my Botox provider for years...and he is quick, and virtually painless. Additionally, he has always been accomodating. Many times he has squeezed me in when my schedule has been too busy for a scheduled appointment. Just like the title of this review says....I love him!

Years of Excellent Service I have been going to Dr. Varano for the last few years and have always been more than happy with my results. Please know that I am not related to him and know him only from an office setting. In a city where unqualified people perform cosmetic procedures that should only be performed by an actual doctor (i.e. sticking a needle near your eye), Dr. Varano still does these more risky procedures himself. He is always courteous, his staff is more than accommodating to my busy schedule, and his service is always exceptional. I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family.

EXCELLENT SERVICE My friend and I both purchased the Groupon Deal with Medical Cosmetic Enhancements. From start to finish I had a great experience with everyone from the phone operator to Dr. Varano. Our first session was on December 19, 2009 when the area had a HUGE snowstorm. They were very accommodating and even though we were late they waited for us with no penalties and even had fabulous homemade brownies waiting for us, which was really nice! Dr. Varano gave us our first treatment and he was fabulous! We just had our second treatment and once again everyone was great! I cant wait till our final treatment! Thanks GROUPON and Medical Cosmetic Enhancements

THE FOLLOWING ARE REVIEWS YELP HAS FILTERED

I had laser hair removal done on my underarms and found that the staff was very friendly and informative. I was pretty nervous about doing the procedure since the most I've done was wax. But, the staff made me feel at ease and didn't start anything until I was comfortable. The whole appointment lasted about 20 minutes, most of it being the consultation and the laser didn't hurt. I felt like I was getting tickled. Overall, I'd say I'm very pleased with how everything turned out.

This is a plastic surgery doctor's office, so not at all like a spa. I like that the staff is medically trained and knowledgeable. Dr. Varano is there to address any issues or concerns.

My mom came with me and scheduled an appointment for botox. So, if my mom liked the office, then you know it's a good place!

I had Laser Liposuction done on arms by Dr Verano 3 weeks ago. The results were better than I expected, as he had described the procedure to me during our initial consultation. He wanted to give me realistic expectations for what the results would render. Though I am not over weight, I had arms that would " flap" in the wind . No matter how I try to age gracefully, thats what happens to most women. I was a little sore the next day, but the discomfort was tolerable. I did not even use the pain medicine prescribed. Dr Varano personally called me the next day, to check and see how I was feeling. His office staff was very personable, helpful, and knowledgeable. I was a little hesitant at first, but am glad I made the decision to have the treatment done. I can now fit into shirts/tops that I would have reservations wearing in the past. He really deserves a 5 start rating, which I will change once the after pictures at the 6 months mark are completed. If you are contemplating having the treatment , I highly suggest you sign up for a consult with this practice

I have had laser hair removal on my back performed by Dr. Verano on numerous occasions over the last 3 years. Having evaluated the results after these multiple years of treatment, I have to report that I am extremely satisfied with the results. The procedures themseles were only minimally uncomfortable, exactly as Dr. Verano explained that they would be; his staff was very attentive and professional; and Dr. Verano's knowledge and skills in performing the procedures was impecable. As a physician myself, I am keenly sensitive to the competency, knowledge base, and skill set in any physician that I, myself, will see. Dr. Verano clearly exceeded my hopes and expectations. In the end, the hair growth on my back, a notoriously difficult body part in which to successfully perform laser hair removal, is greatly thinned, grows much more slowly, and is cosmetically much improved--exactly as Dr. Verano and I hoped that it would be. Indeed, I strongly recommend Dr. Verano for his expertise and competence in performing oupatient cosmetic medical treatments.

The 2nd visit was much better than the 1st.
Since I've never had a microdermabrasion done before, I really didn't know what to expect. I barely felt anything being done to my skin. When I left, my skin wasn't even pink. No difference re: appearance.

Since I got another "Groupon" rate, I decided to give this office another try.
Because of traffic issues, I was 15 mins. late. Edna, the front desk receptionist, was quite understanding & the appt. wasn't rescheduled.

Vanessa was my technician for this appt. I expressed my "slight" disappointment w/ the 1st visit. In turn, she was very accommodating & applied the maximum pressure. At least, my face was red when I left. My skin felt a little smoother the next day.

I read lot of reviews before deciding, so here is mine: I had slimlipo 5 days ago. (I'll update results). After having 2 kids I could not lose my stomach. I still looked kind of pregnant/fat, and before kids I didn't have a tummy. I waited 18 month after my second child because I thought that I was going to lose weight and go back to kind of normal and I did not have the money (2 kids, 2 daycares, you probably know...) Well, I saved and exercised as much as I could with work + kids + house to take care for. The lipo was fine, he was great and so was Sheila (his assistant), all went very well. When I got up from the table I did not have love handles anymore and my belly was gone! I leaked for 24 h as they said I would. What I was not counting on was the pain. I have some bruising and I was in a lot more pain than I expected. The first 2 days the pain was comparable to the c-sections, now it's much better. Recovery is faster, every day I feel much better. Dont get me wrong it was very worth it and I would do it again in a heartbeat. If I had anticipated the pain I would have planned better to have family around to help with the kids while I could recover. Also, I can't take off work and that may have been a factor. Yesterday I couldn't walk my 2 miles to work, today I kind of could... I'm still swollen and a bit uneven but very happy with the results so far. why not 5 starts? because i'm swollen and couldnt see the final results yet.

I went to see Dr. Varano for a consultation at the Modern Day Spa in the Pentagon Mall. I am forty, and I was primarily concerned with skin laxity under my chin. I asked Dr. Varano about using Thermage or SlimLipo, and he said that he would recommend SlimLipo. He started to explain exactly how SlimLipo would remove the small amount of fat that had accumulated under my chin and tighten the skin. I immediately cut Dr. Varano off, and I said that I was already familiar with how SlimLipo worked. I told him that I appreciated the explanation, but I was a researcher. I had already done all the necessary research. He politely and firmly insisted that I might not know everything that differentiated SlimLipo from traditional liposuction or SmartLipo. In fact, Dr. Varano was exactly right. I did not know everything about SlimLipo, and he proceeded to give me the type of information that I would need to know to make an informed decision. He must have spent almost 30 minutes talking to me, and honestly, I hardly ever talk to any sort of doctor for longer than 10 minutes. Most of them do not take the time.

When I asked him about Thermage, he said that Thermage results were not consistent enough for what I was trying to achieve (my paraphrase). I asked him how much would the Thermage procedure cost if I chose to have it done, and he said, I would not do Thermage for you. He also mentioned that I might try losing a little weight and using Retin A to see if that would produce some tightening. I am absolutely within my normal weight range, but I have gained 10-12 pounds in the past couple of years. He said that a little of the weight may be showing up in the under chin area, and Retin A would help to build collagen. He said it was always good to try solving problems with less invasive methods (again my paraphrase).

I have been using Retin A, and I have lost a few pounds. I can say that the area does look slightly better, however I am still bothered by how the area looks. My jawline is just not smooth anymore. I have, in fact, consulted with other clinics, and I have done more research. At the other clinics, the conversations were minimal at best.

After almost a year, I am fairly certain that Dr. Varano's recommendations were correct, and of all the consultations I received, Dr. Varano seemed the most competent. I think the Thermage results would have been too subtle at best, and I would have been disappointed. I remember telling Dr. Varano that I did not have a lot of money, and I wanted the most bang for my buck. He quoted me a price for the SlimLipo that was $700 less than the Thermage. I am really glad that I tried to get results without undergoing any type of procedure. It was extremely professional of Dr. Varano to recommend that I do this. At this point, I am absolutely ready to go back to Dr Varano, and I am ready to address several areas in addition to my chin. I know this was a long review based on a consultation, but if you are considering having a procedure, I hope it gives you a place to start. There are so many options and clinics out there. It is daunting to know where to begin. Maybe you will choose another doctor, but I guarantee that Dr. Verano is a good starting point and maybe a good ending point as well. I will report back on the results of any procedures that I get, and I will repost. Also, I will be happy to share any specifics with anyone.

I bought a Living Social coupon for $165 for 3 microdermabrasions treatments. I have done microdermabrasions at Vitalia Med Spa in Tysons Corner, also using a coupon deal and it was excellent. There was very slight redness for one day but my skin felt and looked great afterwards. I really felt like my skin was glowing afterwards. I was really impressed with just one treatment. I only did one because their treatments are usually $200 without a coupon. It was also a nice spa environment, lights turned down, soft music. The Vitalia treatment took about 45 minutes.

My first treatment at Medical Cosmetic Enhancements was extremely disappointing. It felt like my skin was vacuumed and not polished like the dermabrasion treatment I had at Vitalia. I even told the esthetician I have had the procedure done before and my skin is not sensitive. I felt like I was ripped off and I can't believe that this is the same treatment they give clients who pay $175 for it. I would be really pissed if I paid $175 for the treatment I got. I saw and felt no difference in my skin. Also, it really is a medical grade treatment. You go in, they clean your face, do the microdermabrasions, put on sunscreen and you are out in about 15 minutes. If you are looking for a spa environment, this is not it. The environment does not bother me if I got a good treatment. But, the treatment really sucked. It was a rip off!!!.

I am not an employee of Vitalia, or being paid by them. I just want you to know that I have done microdermabrasions before so I know what to expect. I am a real consumer and the microdermabrasion treatment provided by Medical Cosmetic Enhancements was a rip off and I would never recommend them.

I did contact Living Social and got a full refund. I did not want to complete the 2 remaining treatments. It would be a waste of my time.

OK here's the thing. Dr Varanos seems to be quite competent. I just finished laser lipo with him. He was great about letting my friend - also a Dr - be in the procedure with us which helped me alot. He also seems like a great guy personally - I like him. What he really needs however, is a competent, consistently reliable administrative staff. Not the esthesticians - they wre better than average - but the receptionist/admin staff. This seemed to be a bit off, thus he was taking up the slack which is unfair to him as a usy surgeon. If he could find someone reliable (Think he has temps?) that would be great for him and likely his clientele. Otherwise I do recommed him; there's everything to like about his performance of Slim lipo. I can't see why anyone would go under general anesethesia to get this done. He is young enough to take current and emerging trends seriously in the plastic surgery profession - something I was specifically looking for. I believe he will also continue to be current on emerging trends which bodes well for his future practice

Went back for other procedures last month, including botox and fraxel treatment. Results were great and again Dr Varano helped me understand the results I should expected . I recommend Dr V and the friendly atmophere he and his whole staff have established

Thank You Dr Varano!!!, You have never over promised and have always produced results that are beyond my expectations. I lost 4 dress sizes since the Laser Liposuction and have absolutely no residual effect. I had a smooth transition back to work 2 days later. There was no discomfort and I've had a radical difference in my ability to exercise. I've had a good experience going back to the gym and don't feel like everyone is looking at me. This provided the improvement on body areas where diet and exercise were just not enough

Have never had better service, never had a better doctor. Can't say enough about Dr. Varano or his professionalism. I have never had to wait, never had a complaint with any of my procedures. More than pleased with all the results
