Dr. Francine Vagotis Reviews

"Breast Augmentation done with Dr. Vagotis.. BEST Decision ever!!! It’s like she can just look at first glance and know what’ll work on your body. She knows her stuff and can back it up. I’m so glad I left the decision making to her. She knew what would best suit my body. Money well spent."

"After searching and reading reviews for over a year, I came upon Dr. Vagotis website. From consultation to follow up care, I was treated with not just respect but kindness and genuine concern. As a plus size patient with diabetes, I went in with realistic expectations of changes she could make. At 3 months post tummy tuck and 2 months post breast reduction, I am amazed at the changes Dr. Vagotis was able to make happen. She puts patient safety as her top priority and made sure to take extra time to go over expectations with me prior to surgery. The office staff additionally reached out to check post surgery and was wonderful with answering questions and handling my needs. Dr. Vagotis is a board certified surgeon I would not only trust for myself, but highly recommend for quality of results and excellent care."

"I love my new body Dr. Vagotis is awesome very understanding she did an amazing job on my breasts and tummy tuck I couldn't be more happy with the results thanks again for changing my Life. After having four C-sections the body just isn't the same and Dr Vagotis gave me my body back definitely recommend her to anyone and everyone looking to better themselves."



"I have come to Dr. Vagotis twice (only because of the 10 year recommended change time frame) for breast augmentation and each time she has done a great job. The scars were very small, my breast look natural and the staff there is very friendly."


"I've had 2 separate plastic surgeries performed by Dr. Vagotis (5 years apart). They both involved my neck and face. Results were just what I wanted, and not too obvious. I'm extremely satisfied. Dr. Vagotis is on the conservative side as far as surgeons go, and I trust her completely. She also has a great surgical team, many of whom have been with her a long time. So it's not just patients who are loyal to her, but the people who work for her, too. I think that says a lot."


"Dr. Vagotis is a true artist. Her skill is beyond compare. I highly recommend Dr. Vagotis for the mini facelift. I had been to several other mini lift consultations in the past looking for the right surgeon, and I am telling you truthfully- I found her. When I met Dr. Vagotis and her team, I immediately knew I was in good hands. Shout out to Monika, Patient Liason: I love, love, love your kindness and compassion. You truly listened to my concerns. Monika, you made me feel like part of your family. 
    It was two weeks from the time of my consultation to the time of my procedure. Dr. Vagotis accepts CareCredit, so it made my life super easy with 0% interest over a year. BUT- the best part... My face has improved significantly (above and beyond what I expected). I no longer have redundant skin on my lower face. My cheeks are lifted. The sag around my mouth is gone. I had very minimal bruising, and no complications. I cannot believe how good I look/ feel. Just all around an A+ experience."

"Dr Vagotis did my breast augmentation in August and I could not be more satisfied with the results and the experience with her and entire staff. The office is chic and clean. The staff is caring, informative, through and quick. Dr Vagotis has been doing these surgeries for decades and the results of her work prove extensive, successful experience. she was able to get me in for surgery 3 weeks after my consultation with I appreciated since my situation did not allow me to be on a months long wait list. My after care instructions were very clear and my healing process was quick and unproblematic since her surgery performance was so smooth. I would recommend Vagotis to family and friends looking for any type of enhancements. I am very grateful for my experience from start to finish (3 months post op)."

"Dr. Vagotis and her staff exceeded my expectations from consulting, surgery and post care. Dr Vagotis renewed my upper and lower eyelids. I couldn't be more satisfied with the results. I no longer look tired all the time."

"Dr V and her staff walked me through my breast augmentation procedure every step of the way. They were extremely professional. I should have done this years ago. I feel like a better version of me. I heard a lot of other people had the some procedure done by other plastic surgeons and suffered from major bruising and had intense pain. However, I had no complications at all. Zero. she definitely has a woman’s touch. Just phenomenal!! Thank u Dr. V. For giving me confidence!!"


"100% satisfied! I had a great experience from beginning to end. I wanted breast implants because after nursing three children I had almost no breast tissue left and I had a very extreme asymmetry; one was much smaller than the other. With Dr. Vagotis I received a very comprehensive consultation, She answered all of my questions and supported me through the process of deciding what implant and style would be best for me. Dr. V was very knowledgeable about the implants, what would look good on my frame, not Just “bigger” but a more natural look as well. Based on what I wanted we found the best implant size and shape to fit my body and my desired end result ( which I have! They are perfect!!) Her staff was supportive, friendly and very accessible; I could call with any questions that I had before and after the procedure. We talked about what to expect during and after the procedure. Recovery was pretty easy, I was back to being ‘mom’ to my 3 kids within days. One of the things that drew me to Dr. Vagotis was the wide range of before/after pictures in her portfolio. There was so much variety. Some breast were really big and high profile and some more teardrop shaped and natural. Other Surgeons I had talked with; most of their finish-product pics were very similar, ranging slightly in size but basically it was the same breast on different women. Dr. Vagotis gives breast augmentation‘s based on what will fit the patient’s wishes and body best. I ended up with exactly what I was hoping for: natural looking breasts (the same size) that fits my frame. My clothes fit. I feel confident. I would do it again with Dr. V in a heart beat."
