I came to Dr.Vu Ho for the BodyTite procedure, and the entire office exceeded my expectations. Dr. Vu Ho did a great job of explaining the procedure, and answered all of my questions. Sandy made me feel really comfortable and helped me during my entire process. It was always easy for me to contact Sandy and Dr. Vu Ho in case I had any worries. Nurse Liz was so sweet during my process as well. She explained each procedure, and was super gentle. I am super happy with my res... More

It has been 7 months since I had my BodyTite procedure on my outer hips and thighs and I am still seeing continuous improvements. I've gone down 2 pants sizes and received a ton of compliments. I definitely recommend this procedure to anyone because you will have a lifetime of gratitude. I cannot thank Dr. Ho, Liz, Sandy and his entire work family for all their love support and their wanting to satisfy me in everything they do. More

Dr Ho is the best!  I had a bodytite procedure on my knee.  Did it in the office with only a local anesthetic.  Did not hurt at all and after 3 days, my knee is bruised but not sore and looks great.  Dr Ho, Sandy and Liz are such a caring combination.  They make you feel like family! More

Very Happy with Bodytite and Facetite - Dr.Vu Ho is an amazing doctor! I received bodytite and facetite, and I am very happy with the results. I did not want to go through a tummy tuck because my schedule is to busy to be down for that long. After three kids I had a lot of stretch marks and was very uncomfortable with my tummy. It has only been six months and I see a huge difference. Sandy is amazing she made sure she contacted me... More

Bodytite with Dr. Ho - Just Wow....SOO Happy With Results! After years of dieting and working out I decided to try some form of liposuction as my arms and back have always been areas for me that I have been self-conscious about. My height is 5'5- weight 133. I decided to inquire with Dr. Ho who I have been going to for several years for Botox and filler's. He suggested a new type of energy assisted liposuction called Bodytite. Basically, the fat is removed using a radio frequency tool that melts the fat which makes it easier to remove. He also said this would tighten the skin in those areas which I needed. I also wanted something where I was able to get these areas treated and be able to go back to work fairly soon. I decided to do it. I had looked into other arm procedures as well and and everything else looked terrifying - long ugly scars across the back of the arms where skin would be removed. No thanks. Dr. Ho is one of the very few doctors that offer this latest technology around here and I do truly believe that he works at staying one step ahead in keeping up with the latest advancements. I'm so happy I chose to go this route, go with him and this procedure. He called in prescriptions for something to relax me during the procedure as well as an antibiotic to start taking the day of the procedure. I was so happy to know that this would not be a procedure where I had to go under general anesthesia. I did NOT want to do that. One of the things that I was going to need were garments to wear after the procedure for about one month. I did extensive research and found a reasonably priced brand online that would work for both of the areas. The brand is Leonisa. There were lots of choices on their website. I went in for the morning of the procedure where he took preop pictures and then I settled in and took my medication and waited for it to kick in. Once I was relaxed Dr Ho and his assistant numbed the areas where he would be performing the work. These were tiny incisions in only a few places. The procedure took a little over two hours. I was very comfortable and there was very little pain. I was still awake and able to communicate with him on anything that might feel uncomfortable. Once finished, we used the body wraps and I was sent home. I had pain medication for any pain that I might've been experiencing. When I first took the wraps off to take a shower I was honestly ASTONISHED at the difference -even though I had swelling which I understand will take a few months to go down. I could see a drastic difference immediately. Especially in my flanks/back. I could see a difference in my arms however, there is still a bit of swelling even now. But, I did measure my arms before I had the treatment and as of today - almost 2 weeks later - I've lost at least 3 inches in each arm!! I cannot wait to wear sleeveless clothes and not feel self-conscious! I would suggest staying in bed the next day after the procedure. But, by that second day I was I went into the office and was fine. Just a little sore. As I write this tomorrow, will be two weeks since I have had the procedure. I will continue to post on this site over time as the swelling continues to go down. The current pictures I am posting are two weeks postop. There is still swelling that I will continue to go down- esp in my arms. If you're looking for something where you can see an immediate difference that isn't too invasive I would highly recommend! I'm sooooo happy with the results!!! More
