"What an amazing experience!"


Office Visit

"By far, the best plastic surgeon in town. He is an artist! He is very good at explaining different procedures, and the pro's and con's of them all. He is simply amazing. My husband was very nervous on the day of surgery and Dr. Virden was able to reassure him and ease his fears. He does amazing work. He is difficult to get into, but well worth the wait."



"I have had no work done by him.  However,  my WIFE needed her thighs and stomach worked on after she lost over 120 pounds after a gastric bypass.   My wife saw three plastic surgeons before deciding to go with Dr. Virden.  One was a female who just did not inspire confidence.  One wanted to do the surgery in a hospital,   adding over $10,000 to the bill.   Dr. Virden did inspire confidence and does his work in an outpatient surgery center which made it so we could afford the surgery.The surgery went as explained and when she had problems with a few stitches after surgery,  he was willing to see her immediately,  even once on Saturday.   The follow up care was excellent.   Now my wife wants a face lift........"



"Dr Virden and his staff are great. Very patient and understanding. Everyone is willing to help with any problems you may have. Had a procedure done and the results came out great. I get tons of compliments. I would definately come back!"



"Dr. Virden and his staff are amazing!!  They make you feel like part of the family. My daughter had half of her nose bit off by a German Shepherd and Virden and Talbot performed the reconstructive surgery on her nose. Right after surgery I was amazed that her whole nose was in place. There was scarring and swelling but she had a complete nose again. They are absolutely the best, top notch, plastic surgeons office in the area and miles around. If your searching for Botox and or fillers they are the best at that too!!!  Results that last!!"
