"Happy repeat patient - Happy for the 3rd time - This is my 3rd procedure performed by Dr. Song, and I'm happy for the 3rd time. I just got my breast reduction/lift with implants exchange (smaller). This has been a very easy recovery, with little pain. The only pain was from the liposuction to the underarms. My scar looks really good considering I have keloid skin."

"54 y/o mother of 3, 10 days post tummy tuck - most remarkable transformation! - Dr. Song performed my TT on May 27, 2022 and I am beyond excited about the results so far! I am only 10 days po but can absolutely see the most remarkable transformation of my body. I am so glad that I waited to find the perfect PS for my procedure. At first, I was a little nervous because we had to do a virtual consultation. I live in Texas and Prima Center is in Georgia. But after talking to him, he answered all of my questions without hesitation and made me feel absolutely confident that I would be ok and have a great outcome. I am a 54 yo mother of 3. I have been waiting what seems a lifetime to get my body back and I am well on the way to having it!!Everyone that I have had the pleasure of speaking to at Prima Center has been amazing. Cindy Hopkins, the surgery coordinator, made the process painless and she was so responsive to all of my questions. We met in person a couple of months prior to my surgery and I feel like we are fast friends now. But I am sure she makes everyone feel that way! Adriana and Michelle were amazing during the pre- and post op visits. Prima should be proud of their staff and how comfortable they make their patients feel during this process.Pics coming soon!Updated on 17 Jun 2022:I can't believe how much my body has changed in just 3 weeks. This surgery has been one of the best things I could have invested in for myself. So glad I waited to find the perfect surgeon. Dr. Songs after care has been nothing less than amazing. Since I was an out of town patient, having him just a phone call away has been great. He responds to all of my questions quickly and just as though I was there in the office. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who is in the decision-making stage."

"2 months post-op - wanted a natural look and he delivered - I chose Dr. Song for my mommy makeover surgery and I couldn’t be more pleased with not only my results but the whole entire experience! As nervous as I was about the process and procedure, it was very difficult to remain in that space once you step foot into the facility. Everyone was so warm kind and welcoming. All of my questions were answered and all of my fears were addressed in the most statistical yet comforting manner. My entire experience from consultation to surgery to post op ran like a well oiled machine. I worked specifically with Cindy, Adriana and Kate who each had a way of making me feel like I had a friend on the inside. The best part about my experience was the anesthesia. It was my first time and all I remember was laying on the operating table with a warm blanket and then I woke up snatched. Lol Dr. Song is an amazing artist and personable doctor. We communicated via text anytime I had questions or concerns. For me personally, the restorative power of my surgery has extended far beyond the physical appearance. My entire mindset has shifted and a new level of confidence and feminine energy has been discovered. These photos are only 2 months post op and look at this transformation and scaring!!! I choose Dr. Song because I wanted a natural look and he most definitely delivered."
