"Dr. Mentz is nothing short of a magician. I went to him for an abdominoplasty in November of 2015 and his work has been life changing. His "bedside manner" is equal to his skill. I did not, for one moment, feel spoken down to or intimidated by his brilliance. He was kind, professional and has a great sense of humor. This man is an artist."- J.R. / Facebook / Aug 16, 2017
"Dr. Mentz and his staff are the best! I have been a patient of Dr. Mentz for about 15 years now and will continue to use his facility because there are many different services available. I am almost 71 years old and people always tell me that I look so much younger than my age. Thank you Dr. Mentz Janet L."- J.L. / Yelp / Feb 27, 2020
"I was a client of his 25 years ago when he did my nose and a bit of lipo. I have thoroughly enjoyed my nose after all these years. It was a tricky surgery, as I had broken it before in a riding accident. Now, 25 years later, I am going back to fix my breasts. I can't say enough good things about him; Many of my friends and clients went to have their surgeries with him after seeing my results and they had no problems."- L.W. / Yelp / Feb 03, 2020

"Dr Mentz is an incredibly talented and gracious doctor! With Wonderful bedside manner! He was able to work magic with a rhinoplasty revision from the previous botched nose job I had received from a doctor before him. My nose looks better than it ever has!! He also did a breast augmentation. Upsizing my 10 yr old implants from saline to silicone and a larger implant. And I finally have the breasts I always wanted!! And a testament to his generosity and commitment to perfection, originally I had a smaller implant chosen and after the original surgery was not happy with the size after all. Dr Mentz was kind enough to allow me to go back under the knife only a couple of days after the initial surgery and obtain the larger implants I desired...FREE OF CHARGE!! Only charging me for the price of the implants. His compassion and understanding made me feel like he really cares and his commitment to perfection rivals my own I am about to have a Brazilian butt lift done with him in a month or two and I am so excited!! Because I know what a talented doctor he is!! I would not entrust my body or face to another doctor EVER AGAIN! If your looking for your "happily ever after", look no further! Thank you again Dr Mentz!! For making me feel (and look) whole again!!"- C.B. / Yelp / Oct 03, 2019
miraDry Treatment Technique
The miraDry treatment is easily performed in an hour at our office. We will invite you into our minor procedures room where we will map out your sweat glands within your underarm area. Then, we will numb the area with a local anesthetic to keep you comfortable during the treatment. Lastly, we will place the miraDry technology over your marked skin. You can expect to feel a suction-like sensation on your skin. Your sweat glands will be destroyed once the miraWave energy is passed over the skin.
There is no downtime associated with a miraDry treatment. Your underarms will feel numb from the local anesthetic until it wears off, and you may experience some swelling and a dull pain for a few days. We recommend treating the area with ice packs and over-the-counter pain relievers to reduce the pain. During your consultation and treatment planning session, we will discuss with you the number of sessions needed for optimal results and when you can resume exercise and other activities that will cause you to sweat. Giving yourself a few days rest may be needed for proper healing.

DON'T I NEED MY SWEAT GLANDS?
Even with losing your underarm sweat glands with a miraDry treatment, you still have millions of sweat glands within your body to cool off. The FDA approved miraDry to be safe for the treatment of hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). If you have more concerns, we can discuss them in a private consultation.
How many Treatments?
Every miraDry patient will have their own customized treatment plan. After your first miraDry treatment session you will see a significant decrease in the amount to sweat your underarm and the odor it produces. We will discuss with you how many treatments you will need at your treatment planning session.
How oFten DO I Treat?
In some cases, a patient may need only one miraDry treatment session, however, most patients have at least 2 for best results. The second appointment may be scheduled 2 – 3 months later. Our patient coordinator can help you plan your treatment schedule at your consultation appointment.
