"After meeting with four other surgeons it was a no-brainer to go with Dr. Barker. He was the only surgeon who acknowledged my pre-existing conditions and didn’t try to push anything on me. Dr. Eric Barker & his staff are the cream of the crop. When you walk into their facility you feel so warm & welcomed. Dr. Barker listened to what I wanted/my comments/my concerns & made sure was happy every step of the way. I received a breast augmentation. I did have a deformity plus a pre-existence spine condition. Dr. Barker went above and beyond. My breast complement my body, not take over my body. I can say for the first time in my life I am 100% comfortable in my body. My mind, body and soul are finally all connected and I can thank Dr. Barker for that.

"Dr. Barker and his team are AMAZING!!! From day 1 of my consultation into week 4 after my breast augmentation surgery, everybody in his office are so accommodating and professional. I am soooo happy with my results!!! I showed him several pics of my “goal” breasts before surgery and he 💯 nailed it. They are exactly what I hoped for and look very natural with the gummy bear implants that were used. I was prepared for a lot of pain after surgery, and opted for a pain blocker shot...well...that shot was a game changer. i didn’t feel much pain at all for 72 hours after the surgery. The whole experience was a lot easier than i ever imagined. Go see Dr. Barker....you won’t regret it!!!"- L.L / Office Visit / Jan 26, 2021

Vaser Liposuction FAQs
What is the difference between VASER and traditional liposuction?
VASER is an acronym for vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance. This ultrasound technology uses powerful waves to disrupt the bonds between fat cells allowing the surgeon to remove the fat in a more uniform and gentle manner. By doing this, VASER liposuction provides a more powerful method to obtain more drastic body contouring results through liposuction. In all, VASER liposuction offers the surgeon more precision and the ability to be gentler when performing the procedure. Due to the technological benefits of VASER, a patient's recovery following treatment will be more comfortably and typically will experience much less bruising and swelling.
Does liposuction improve cellulite and loose skin?
Traditional liposuction surgery only addresses excess fat in the body, while VASER liposuction also provides some skin tightening due to the ultrasound technology. If a significant amount of loose skin is present and VASER liposuction alone will not be sufficient, it is also often performed with skin tightening surgery, such as a tummy tuck, arm lift, or thighplasty, to give you your best results. There are many nonsurgical and minimally invasive treatment options to correct cellulite, VASER liposuction may be a good option for some, but Dr. Barker will go over this in detail during your consultation. Talk to Dr. Barker about all your concerns, like loose skin and cellulite, so your ideal and customized treatment plan is created in your consultation.
