"I could not be happier!"

“Dr. Desman performed breast augmentation and liposuction for me last month. From start to finish, I have been satisfied with my experience. At one of my first appointments, Amanda said she would “hold my hand through the entire experience” and she truly has. She has been available for all my questions and concerns. Dr. Desman has a really nice bedside manner which calmed me as this was my first surgery and a relatively big life choice for me. I would recommend Dr. Desman and his team to anyone who asked me!”

I can’t thank Dr. Desman enough!

“I have been going back and forth about breast reduction surgery for years. I have suffered from back and neck pain for SO long but the thought of surgery always scared me. I tried every bra and even lost weight, but the pain and discomfort never went away. When I finally decided to have the surgery, I did my research for the right surgeon and all roads lead to Dr. Desman. I chose him because of all the amazing reviews I read and they were all absolutely right. Everyone at VCPS was helpful and professional from the moment you call to set up the consultation (especially Martha being as though she answered my hundreds or phone calls and questions leading up to surgery). Dr. Desman focused on me and listened to everything I wanted. He was very thorough from day one and always made sure to explain everything, step by step, to me and my mom. He told me exactly what to expect when I got to the hospital all the way to how I would feel after the surgery. And on the day of surgery he was patient and walked me through everything again. I’m currently 4 weeks post-op and I feel amazing! No sign of neck or back pain. I didn’t experience any pain after surgery, just soreness, which is way better than I expected. Scarring is very minimal. You can tell Dr. Desman took his time and was extremely neat. I feel so free and I would 100% do this again. I can’t give enough thanks and praise to Dr. Desman and his team at VCPS for changing my life!! Thank you!”

"A very smart and talented man!"

“Board certified and I researched him A LOT. Great reviews. A very smart and talented man. He is a very nice but somewhat on the quiet side before you get to know him but don’t let that fol you – he knows his stuff. He lets you talk away and then when you are ready he answers you and answers well at that. He is very good at what he does and he keeps up on the latest training, etc.”

"Dr. Desman is an amazing doctor!"

“I LOVE the VCPS! Dr. Desman is an amazing doctor. I lost 70 pounds and desperately wanted to get the extra skin removed. He performed my abdominalplasty perfectly, with little pain and scarring. Both him and his staff have treated me like family, making sure to be on call for even the smallest concerns. The surgery changed my life in all the best ways and I feel so lucky to have picked him to be my surgeon. He’s the best. VCPS is the best and I could absolutely see myself returning in the future with any other cosmetic inquiries.”

"I am soooooo Glad that I choose Dr. Desman!"

After doing my research, I decided to do an consult with Dr. Desman. My experience was excellent. He explained everything in full detail. Before going to my appointment, My husband was a little iffy about everything. But felt so at ease after the consult was done. I scheduled my surgery the following week with Dr. Desman. My entire experience has been Amazing from beginning to end. My rapid recovery was the BEST!!!! I actually went to work the next day. No narcotics were needed or anything. I am soooooo Glad that I choose Dr. Desman for my procedure. I would recommend him to all my Family and Friends.”
