Absolutely satisfied with my results. The staff was warm & extremely helpful in my decision to have the surgery & setting realistic goals for my weight loss plan. I'm not exactly where I want to be, but after three months, it is very clear this surgery was a stepping stone to becoming a new me. My goal was to be at my ideal weight after six months. So far so good!

I absolutely enjoyed my experience with Sono Bello. Not only is the staff super friendly and knowledgeable, they are also available at any time to answer any questions you may have. I am only 1 week post off from liposuction in the lower abdomen and hips and I have ZERO complaints. If you're looking to get some work done with some of the friendliest people in town, Sono Bello is the place to go!

I am a little over one week post procedure. I have been very impressed with my experience. The staff has been great to work with. I was a little skeptical of the three day back to work timeframe. I had my procedure on a Thursday and was up and active by Sunday. I can see some results in the way my body looks already and look forward to continued improvement over the next few weeks and months.

My experience at Sono Bello was great! I had looked into many different avenues and decided that Sono Bello was the best option for me. I was concerned about being put to sleep, the down time I would be facing if I had a tummy tuck, and the expense of the procedure. The staff and Dr. Lionelli were great! They were very thorough and guided me through each step of the process. I was also able to setup my surgery a week later which was very convenient. I felt relaxed and comfortable the day of the surgery and I was up moving around the following day. I returned to work two days after my surgery and although I was sore I was very happy that I was able to return to some normalcy so quickly. A week after my surgery I returned to the office for a checkup to see how things were progressing, and even though I was told that I may not see results that soon I was astonished by how great things looked! This was what I had waited to see for so many years of being uncomfortable in my skin; I finally had a jump start to a new healthy life! I can’t wait to see what is in store for me at my 3 month check-up!!! Thank you Sono Bello and staff for helping me on a new path.

I had my liposuction procedure 2 weeks ago. I have dieted and exercised and lost about 30 pounds, but I could not seem to flatten my midsection and it bothered me. I saw the commercials for SonoBello and gave them a call. Everyone was very friendly at my consultation and I booked my procedure that same day. Honestly, I was later very nervous about the speed at which everything was happening (even though I had been contemplating the procedure for over a year). I looked at some online reviews and Sono Bello in other states did not have good reviews! I immediately became very nervous and considered cancelling my procedure. But I called and talked to the office manager Janice who was SO kind and reassuring. She even offered to hold my hand during the procedure! I went forward with it and BOY AM I GLAD I DID! My doctor was EXCELLENT. He was knowledgeable, kind, and very pleasant bedside manner. He answered all of my questions and didn't make me feel rushed. He even personally called me after my procedure that night to check on me. The ENTIRE staff was fantastic. The nurses were great and very comforting. Even the front desk staff was great. I have nothing but great things to say about this location and the staff and if I ever had anything else done, I would definitely come back here. If you are considering it, please do some research so you feel comfortable with the process, but please consider Sono Bello because they were really fantastic and I am very pleased with my outcome. Even only 2 weeks out I see a tremendous difference!

I'm three 3 weeks out from my procedure but I have to say the change in my body has been amazing even 3 days post op. Being in my mid 40s, I needed something to get my groove back. I've tried diet and countless hours at the gym but the midsection and stomach pouch never went away. This was so frustrating for me and I began to hate how I looked in the mirror. When I saw the Sonobello commercials I realized it was time to do something for ME and that's exactly what I did. The procedure was fairly easy (I had it on Thursday morning and was up and in Walmart shopping on Saturday). I had very minimal bruising and wasn't in pain as one would think. I'd liken it to a hard workout. My body seems to change every day and I'm receiving compliments on looking fabulous. Clothes that I would be self conscious about wearing or I'd have to layer to cover my kangaroo pouch I can now wear with my head held high. Watch out world ... I'm baaaaack!

The staff and physician were excellent, friendly, caring, and addressed all my concerns. I will definitely use Sono Bello in the future with other areas of concern. I see a difference every week with my body continuously improve.

Awesome! I recently had the laser liposuction procedure 2 weeks ago and I am very happy with my results already. I was awake the whole procedure with no pain and was back to normal within a day. The doctor and nurses both called to check on me. I would recommend Sono Bello to anyone who is interested. The staff is great they made sure I was comfortable and taken care of. I plan on going back :) and highly recommend you try it too!

The staff at Sono Bello are awesome! From the first visit to the post op visits! Make you feel very welcomed and at ease. I had two separate procedures done - The doctor was great very likable and friendly - he answered all my questions and made me feel very much at ease as well as the nurses. I would recommend this office highly!

The staff at Sono Bello are excellent and very friendly. From my first phone call to set up an appointment to my post-op examination, everyone was very informative and caring. My first consultation with April was enough to convince me that this was just what I was looking for. Through the whole procedure all my questions and concerns were answered and explained so that I was fully informed of what was to come and what to expect. After the procedure everyone was always in contact either by phone or e-mail, Dr Schwartz even returned a phone call at 9:00 p.m. to discuss a concern I had about post-op condition I had. He assured me it was normal and I was fine, he was right and next day it was gone. I would highly recommend Sono Bello to anyone looking to improve the appearance of their body.

I was very nervous at first, about pain during the procedure, a long recovery period, and how my body would look. From the first consultation to a month after my first round of procedures my initial thoughts were the opposite of what I actually experienced.
I had alot done, upper/lower abs, waist, chin, inner thighs, and bra back roll spread over two procedures. Both times I was comfortable to the point where i fell asleep, when awake barely felt anything. During the recovery stages, the all of the staff including my nurses, doctor, and consultant called and checked on me. I followed their instructions and experienced minimal discomfort (stiffness as if i worked out too hard). In both cases I was back at work around 3 days.
As for my results, I personally did not expect them to turn out this well. I have done it all dieting, insanity type workouts, and a have always maintained a healthy lifestyle. That being said I have never looked or feel the way i do now! The best part is I could see a difference instantly and as the weeks go by my results have been getting better and better. I extremely happy that I followed through with my consultation.

I am so happy to give Sono Bello St.Louis a standing ovation of a review. I’ve changed my eating habits and have exercised regularly. There are still areas on me that are stubborn and lack the look I’m working so hard for. These areas include the upper and lower abs, waist and hips. For these areas, laser lipo was the best choice for me. I shopped around at two other body contour centers-One in O’Fallon and one in Clayton, before finding Sono Bello. The following reasons are why Sono Bello was the best choice:
Online presence- I went to sono bello’s website to get information before scheduling a consultation-which is free! Everything you need to know about the different procedures, before and after photos, reviews, you name it and it’s there. Every certified doctor they employ is on the website alongside a photo and a resume. They even offer a chat with a representative. I chose to do the chat because I had questions about bmi and possibly scheduling an appointment after store hours. It was very clear that I was speaking to a real person.
Representatives- From start to finish, everyone at Sono Bello has been so incredibly kind. There are a lot of people to thank for making me feel comfortable and confident. Everyone I encountered was completely professionalBrittney, the receptionist helped me organize all of my appointment times-even with my crazy schedule. I had my consult with April. Besides being friendly, she gave me the in depth information I needed about the process, what to expect and financial options. There was absolutely no pressure and I felt like I was talking to a friend, not a sales person. I was able to email April directly for any questions. As busy as she is, she always responded right away.
Medical Staff- My nurses-Kat and Jen were so fun and helpful. I was nervous to have the procedure done but they kept me in good spirits the whole time. I had my procedure done on 2/22/14 with Dr. Shatz. I met him during my post op-one week prior to the procedure. He was very kind, professional and told me exactly what to expect during and after the procedure. During, he made sure that I was comfortable regularly, as it was done with local anesthesia. Dr. Shatz also called me on two separate occasions post procedure just to see how I was doing.
The Procedure- On the morning of the procedure, I took the required medication for pain, nausea and anxiety, a pregnancy test and I was ready to go. At this point, I was feeling very comfortable and relaxed. All nervousness was gone and I was ready to sleep. During, I was instructed to turn and do foot pumps regularly. It honestly felt like being woken up from a nap continuously. I remember feeling the incisions made but they felt like a routine shot. The tubes inserted into those incisions tickled. I remember giggling during and Dr. Shatz told me about it during a check up call. I don’t know if laughter is a typical response, but I did! Before I knew it, it was over. My nurses bandaged me up and put me in a compression garment
Post Procedure- my guardian took care of me for the next 24 hours. There was leaking of the tumescent fluid for the remainder of the night. It is red in color but not blood. I was sitting on towels and constantly changing out of clothes. None of my clothes stained but use clothes you don’t mind getting stained anyways. I stopped leaking fluid the next day. I would recommend having a family member or friend watching over you the following day as well.
Progress: During my first shower, I could already see my problem areas improved already! My upper abs shocked me and the indention that I have in their lower abs was almost nonexistent. My back muffin top is flush with my bottom and I can’t believe it. I was able to return to work two days after the procedure.

Hi, I just had liposuction done on 2/26/14. The Dr and his staff were amazing!!! From the moment I walked into Sono Bello and greeted warmly I knew I was in the right place. I did go for other consultations but there was something positive and personal about them I just knew. My body is healing and I cannot wait for the results! I would highly recommend Sono Bello to everyone considering Lipo suction!

I recently just had my free consultation at Sono Bello, I was so impressed with the location, easy access on and off the highway. The office is gorgeous. The customer service was beyond my standards. I had my consult with April and was very nervous at first but she was amazing. Answered everything that I had questions about. I told myself I wasn't going to buy... I was just getting information. And guess what .. I was so impressed and April got me so excited to actually make this process reality that I did it. I booked my surgery that day and will be having surgery in March! I'm so excited. I was in and out with a life changing decision that I have no doubts about choosing Sono Bello and Im so stoked about getting it done. I can't wait to see results !

This is a new office that has plenty of parking. They are open on the weekend; which is an advantage for me. My consult was with April. Let me tell you she went above and beyond to make this long wanted procedure happen. She answered ever question I had.Sono Bello thank you for hiring customer oriented people.
