My experience at Sono Bello in Portland was great! I met with Shab for my consultation, she was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all my questions. I had read a lot of other reviews that said that there were "sleazy or shady sales tactics" but I didn't experience that at all. We talked about my financial situation and I was able to go home and think about it for a few days with no pushy-ness. After I decided I was ready I had my Pre Op with Dr. Sobel and Liz, they both made me feel very comfortable and explained the process. On the day of my surgery I was pretty nervous but the lovely nurse was able to talk to me and keep me calm. My procedure only took one hour and I was on my way home. I took pain meds for 1 1/2 days and then nothing after that and back to work after 3 days. The healing process has been fairly easy. I had my upper abs, lower abs and hips treated.
