Complaint / review text:
Shopped for a lipo suction service locally and found Sono Bello. Made an appointment with person and was measured and pinched. She made an off to remove my fat around the middle for $2995. She wrote on the proposal "lower hips and handles" but assured me it was for all areas that concerned me. Before day before treatment appointment another form with "lower abs" showed up. Again I was told if was for the areas I came in for. Day before surgery had appointment with doctor who ask me which area did I want done? I said all of it. He said I either could have hips or lower abdomin, but not both; unless I paid more money, ($1,250).
I was angry but left without saying much. Overnight I researched to see if this last minute money grab was common with Sono Bello and found evidence of that. I showed up for my surgery and the doctor came in and said my surgery had been canceled because I was not excited about having it done. He did not say my contract or offer was cancelled. They refunded my money, but I had put off work and everything for that week, I had made an emotional decision to have the work done, and it took weeks to stop being angry and feeling like I was conned. I still feel conned. I have not looked into getting it done elsewhere because I am afraid they are all like that.
