"What an amazing experience!"


Office Visit

"Had my lower eyes done by Dr Virden and just went in for my final post operation consult.  I am thrilled and  could not be happier with the results.  He was really good about discussing things and keeping me in the loop.  He's also no-nonsense which, as a dude I really appreciate.  I recommend Dr Virden 100 percent from my experience."



"I researched for over a year and consulted with four different doctors before I decided on my procedure.  Dr. Virden was hands down the right choice.  He and his staff are 100% professional, accommodating and were so very patient with all of my questions and concerns.   I love the results and I trust him completely.  Thank you Dr. V!"



"I came in from out of state to have my procedures done with Dr. Virden. He is extremely personable, knowledgeable and confident in what he does. On the day of my pre-op, as I was flying into Reno, my flights were diverted and delayed and I didn't get in until late. Dr, Virden went above and beyond to meet with me outside of normal office hours to make sure I was ready and confident for surgery the next morning. He is caring and attentive and checked in on me over the weekend after the surgery. I'm extremely happy with my results. My breasts look amazing and my tummy flat! I have had minimal pain after surgery and I attribute that to having an extremely skilled surgeon. I highly recommend Dr. Virden!"

"Tummy Tuck (Skin Only) on Athletic Woman Following Weight Loss - Reno, NV - I have used Dr Virden in the past for Lipo (at the time to "jump start" my diet/weight loss journey). I have always found him to be very professional and realistic in terms of what he can/can't deliver in terms of results). He is direct, honest and to the point. This morning before surgery, he went over any last minute questions I had and "marked me up". He explained exactly where he was going to cut the skin and how he was going to go about the procedure. I have a post-op with him tomorrow morning, so looking forward to seeing the initial results."
