Image Cosmetic Center in Atlanta

Image Cosmetic Center in Atlanta

Postby 305GIRL » Wed Jul 13, 2011 7:26 am

I always come across the same ad on my Thursday paper for this center but I havent heard anyone even mention it at all. The doc name is Lewis Duke Friedlander, MD and when I search for reviews I mostly see just patients talking about him as general surgeon but no detail as a plastic surgeon and his work. His prices is what made me research him and then while reading about his BBL at the end he says he learned this procedure by none other than Mendieta. Has anyone heard of this guy? Good or bad? Here is what his prices look like from his site
We specialize in:

Liposuction $1200 (1st Area - Includes Surgeon, Anesthesiologist, Nurse & Facility)
Breast Augmentation $2900
Facial Rejuvenation
Permanent Lip Enhancement $1200 (One Lip) to $1900 (Upper and Lower)
Face Lift $3200

Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) $3900

I haven't seen any posts about but he is very cheap, especially for US, IMO. But I dont know, you gotta be careful with these things. If he isn't certified for PS, I dont care who he learned from. But Idk. Im a noob. Sounds good.....

Actually, he really isnt THAT cheap. You have to remember that most of the quotes given by MDs are inclusive of ALL the areas you want lipo'd (ex: lower and upper back, abs, arms, flanks for $7000). Soooo, if you were to add all those areas up based on his prices. . .let's say he gave you a deal for $800 for every add'l area of lipo, you're still talking about $3200 in addition to the 2900 which would bring you to about $6100. And that's IF he gave you a good deal off the $1200. It's not expensive, but not so cheap when you look at it like that.

It only looks cheap bc he doesnt list lipo prices for multiple areas at the same time for the BBL. Decent priced, yes. Cheap? No.

Just my view ;)

Hello to all the ladies with the questions about Image Cosmetic Center in the Atlanta area.

I called and made an appointment to have a consultation with the Dr. The consultations are free which is a plus since alot of surgery centers charge a fee. The name of the surgeon is Dr. Lewis Friedlander and he is board certified having performed plastic surgery for over 17 years. The office is located in Atlanta but it's actually in the Sandy Springs area across the street from The Prado shopping center. The office is very clean and is decorated very nicely. The staff is well mannered and is very knowledgeable about the procedures the surgeon performs. Dr. Friedlander is the one who actually speaks to you during the consultation and answers any questions or concerns you may have. The prices that are advertised in his ads are exactly correct.
They are listed as follows:
Breast augmentation $2995
Face Lift $3200
Fat Transfer to the Buttocks $2900
Abdominoplasty $3900
Liposuction for the first area is $1200 and each additional area is $900.00

Everything is included in the price (anesthsia fees, nurse and facility fees along with post ops visits) Lab fees which run around $215.00 and prescription fees which run around $25 are not included in the price.

Having done a little more research before scheduling my consultation I learned that Image Cosmetic Center has an excellent safety record. No sanctions or malpractice histories show up anwyhere and the doctor stands behind his work. The operating room is located in the same building which is a plus. They have a fully qualified operating room along with the staff being fully qualified.

When I spoke with Dr. Friedlander about my problem areas he seemed very knowledgeable and confident about the procedures he perfoms. His before and after pictures show a big difference and he does excellent work. I was very impressed with what I saw and how I was treated so I scheduled my surgery date and I'm very excited to finally get my problem areas worked on.

I believe he dilutes his Botox!! I used to go to him but quit for this reason. I started going to a well known plastic surgeon and had wonderful results. Unfortunately this doctor was about a $100 more. Dr. Friedlander's prices used to be good so a couple of years later I decided to try him one more time. I told his staff that I hadn't gotton results the last time, a couple of years ago which is why I had stopped coming. This time the nurse mixed the botox in front of me. (price had gone up $100 but he gave $25 off). I got great results. The second time, no results again!! It is painful the way he does the injections. He uses a large needle and moves it around instead of the little syringes that most use. When he did it right, I like it though. Now I would never recommend Dr. Friedlander. Today, when I went in to show him that I got very little if any results and he wanted to charge me more money. He said he couldn't keep giving Botox away! Keep giving? Are other people also wanting him to give them what they paid for. This was the first time I had come back to ask him to fix it. The first time I just went elsewhere. He came up with excuses like "some people who get Botox stop getting results". Really?!? Just when I come here my face is suddenly immune? He also said that Botox isn't warranted. I agree. That makes sense because some people may have unrealistic expectations. All I wanted was to see results for what I paid. Stupid on his part though. I am a regular patient. I get Botox every 4-6 months. Also, i had considered doing a surgical procedure there although I was very hesitant because I think he does surgeries there and the place does not instill much confidence. Bottom line: his work is inconsistent and he does not stand behind his work. I most sincerely believe he waters down the Botox. My rating is a 1

Oddly enough I agree that plastic surgery princess is a shameless plug for the center. BUT.....it's all true! I went there myself and had "work" done. The staff is great (well, with the exception of the receptionist who seems kinda airheadish)...bu everyone was very pleasant. My procedure was quick, and inexpensive. As soon as I can, I'm going back for more!
