“I’m a huge believer in more than one consultation when choosing a plastic surgeon. I had a breast augmentation in 2015 and had three consultations before deciding who my surgeon would be. Fast forward to 2023, I started looking for a surgeon for a tummy tuck, muscle repair, and lipo of the flanks. I surveyed local moms who have gone through the procedure and got Dr. Blanchard’s name multiple times along with another surgeon, so I scheduled consultations with both. Let’s just say I never made it to the other consultation… Dr. Blanchard is just the warmest, most empathetic Plastic Surgeon I’ve ever met. He was thorough during my consultation, explaining his “way” of performing this procedure and even expressed it’s his favorite procedure to do. The nurses, Patient Care Coordinator (Holly), and just the entire staff was fantastic. I even requested to see Dr. Blanchard again a week later because I came up with more questions and he obliged, and gave me as much time as I needed. I am now 9 days post op and I am convinced he’s a wizard. Having my muscle repaired was first and foremost, when deciding to go through this procedure. The aesthetic result is simply a bonus, and man, he nailed it! My incision is perfect, and low, low, which he promised. My waist is smaller than it’s ever been and I am still very swollen, so I cannot wait to see my final result. I trust Dr. Blanchard and the staff at PSCHR wholeheartedly. I highly recommend the practice and think Dr. Blanchard should definitely be on your list of surgeons to interview.”


“So this is way past due however what better time then the 2nd year anniversary. I came to Dr. Z on a strong recommendation from a co-worker of mine. When I walked in I was so nervous because it’s a surgery and no one what’s to be botched, but Dr Z. & his staff was so professional and answering every question that I had. I love how he will recommend what works best for your body so you won’t walk around looking crazy with medical issues in the long run. He is also detailed in the process that it makes you trust he had the best intentions for you and your outcome. He made me & my spouse feel so comfortable day of surgery His staff took care of me & very detailed with what to expect and very attentive to my allergies to make sure I was safe at all times. I strongly recommend him make your appointment asap with him you will never regret it.”


“I am 17 weeks post-op from my initial surgery and I am 5 weeks post-op from my second surgery. Both performed by Dr. Vonu who truly has gifted hands and the most pleasant calm temperament. He performed a tummy tuck and lipo on my back/bra-area. And because I am the smartest person on this side of the Mississippi, I used a heating pad to aid with the swelling (NEVER Do This). Well, I burnt myself really bad on my abdominal area. After immediately contacting the office, they requested that I come in for a visit (at this time I was about two weeks post-op). Dr. Vonu said, “we will get this right!” He and his staff treated me for the burn for several weeks and did not make me feel stupid in making such an awful decision. Once the burn was healed enough, Dr. Vonu went back in to remove the burn area. Now my results are the most amazing. Family, friends and co-worker all cannot believe the transformation. Dr. Vonu and his staff are nothing but the most kind and the best in this filed. This office, specifically Dr. Vonu was recommended to me along with some other surgeons but I am so glad I made the choice of Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads. To be a physician/surgeon one must have a love of his/her craft and a love of people, “Love is art. So, be an artist and spread love and happiness”.

And thank you for the beautiful flowers and for-ever changing my life, be blessed.”


“My experience with Dr. Blanchard was excellent. I was interested in filler to help reduce the deep lip lines I’ve developed with age, and those “marionette” lines. Dr. Blanchard listened to my concerns and gave me his opinion of what filler would be the best to get the results i was looking for. He was very informative and made me very comfortable to proceed. The process was quite easy and I’m thrilled with my results! It has made a huge difference in the way I feel about myself. I highly recommend this practice, everyone I dealt with was professional and very kind!”

“I can’t say enough about Julie and Michelle from the MedSpa. Their knowledge and kindness keeps me coming back.”


“Trish is the best. First time I ever had actual filler was with her. She let’s you know everything she is doing along the way! Highly recommended!”


“Amazing staff! Everyone through the entire process was very helpful, understanding and did everything they could to make me comfortable. The honesty from Dr. Z and nurses, made my decision for surgery very easy! The atmosphere was calming and full of joy. I would recommend 1,000 times over.”


“Just want to say what a wonderful experience I had before, during and after my procedure today. Everything went so smoothly – from taking pictures, thanks Michelle, to my procedure, thanks Trisha. Trisha explained what to expect and feel before, during and after my procedure which really helped to calm my nerves. Thanks PSCHR to your fantastic MedSpa group.”


“Julie was very knowledgeable about the products she used on my face and gave a very thorough dermaplane. You were great!”


“Dr. Blanchard has an amazing bedside manner and his staff is so kind.”


“Having cosmetic surgery is a serious decision. But choosing the right plastic surgeon, anesthesiologists and a fabulous care team means the world to a patient. Dr. Zwicklbauer’s office sent me the most beautiful bouquet of flowers, that was truly special. But, let me say, so far I’m looking pretty good. I love this place, they make you their business for real.”


“Dr. Vonu is the best, He has worked on my whole family. You feel that he is looking for the best for you, and he goes over the procedure with you to help you make the right decision. Trust him fully. Thanks Dr. Vonu.”


“I have not witnessed a kinder medical staff than at this office! They were able to fit me in ASAP for a concerning area to be removed. I spoke to multiple receptionists who were all extremely helpful in helping me make my appointment. The nurses and doctor during my visit were extremely caring. I live in Williamsburg, but this office is worth the drive. Kindess is very hard to come by these days, and I am very thankful for them.”


“Dr. Lofgren and the staff have been wonderful. Everything was described to me before and after surgery. All my questions were answered and concerns addressed. I got a arm and breast lift and happy with my results thus far. Surgery is a scary thing but I feel comfortable and safe with Dr. Lofgren and his staff. Thank you for being great and doing what you do best!”


“Dr. Vonu performed a tummy tuck on me after being left with a 4 inch gap in my abdomen after having twins. This surgery changed my life. I instantly felt comfortable with him during my consultation and he made sure every question I had was answered. I was nervous about the surgery but he assured my husband that he would take care of me as if I was part of his family. I can’t recommend Dr. Vonu enough.”


“I was referred to Dr. Blanchard after having weightloss surgery in 2016. I was scared to get a fat removal due to all the horror stories. However this experience was all worth me going out of my comfort zone. Blanchard and the entire team truly care about their patients and their health pre op and post op. I truly appreciate them for everything they’ve done for me.”


“The staff and physician were friendly and caring in addressing questions about an upcoming surgery. Appointments were easily made and in a timely manner. At all times I felt comfortable and confident with their surgical skill and competence!”


“Took me 3 consults over the years, all with Dr. Blanchard, before I pulled the trigger on my tummy tuck. So very happy with the results. There was nothing more defeating than working out so very hard but looking in the mirror and seeing all of the loose/hanging skin, or to feel it jiggle when you walk. I worked hard over the years to lose the weight and keep it off. So when I did get my tummy tuck, I am very glad I chose Dr. Blanchard and his team. Thank you all so much. What a life changer.”


“Absolutely would recommend Dr. Z to everyone! He’s truly amazing at everything he does. I have had a few things done by him and he never disappoints. He’s a master at his profession!”


“Let me start by first saying every last one of the staff members that I’ve encountered and talked to at this office is AMAZING!! Next thing I want to say is that my doctor did an over the top wonderful job to my body and I love it so much. I highly highly recommend Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads for whoever wants to get anything done. They are the absolute BEST.”


“Dr. Lofgren and the staff have been wonderful. Everything was described to me before and after surgery. All my questions were answered and concerns addressed.

“Everyone was absolutely amazing! I felt everyone genuinely cared and I wasn’t just another “number”. Will definitely recommend to others.”


“Every visit I’ve had here has been extremely positive. Every member of the staff, both administrative and medical, has done so much to make each interaction personal and comfortable. I have recommended this office to a number of friends and will continue to do so!”

Laura N.

“I felt so at home! The entire staff was amazing and so kind! PSCHR is my go to from now on! I’m so happy, thank you!”


“This was my second time seeing Dr. Vonu. My first surgery (around 10 years ago) turned out so well of course I wanted to see him again. He is so kind & caring and always makes you feel comfortable. He explains everything about the outcomes of the procedures and post-op information. His staff is wonderful and is always there for you. I definitely recommend Dr. Vonu (and will go to him for any other procedures!).”

Sarah B.

“Dr. Vonu is truly a master at his craft. I approached him with a vision of what I wanted for myself and he was able to convert that into reality. His kind, caring bedside manner made me feel comfortable and informed regarding exactly what the procedure would entail. I am only seven weeks post op (mini-tuck &lipo); however, the results speak for themselves. I receive compliments every day from friends, coworkers, and strangers on my figure. If I ever decide to have another procedure performed, I will definitely work with Dr. Vonu. He is amazing.”

Elizabeth B.

“Dr Zwicklbauer and the entire staff are the kindest most professional people I have ever met. From my consultation, to surgery, to follow-up I’ve been treated with kindness. Dr. Z listened to my wants and gave me all of my options. Immediately I felt comfortable and knew this was the doctor for me. I have had nothing but positive experiences! They even sent flowers and called the day after surgery to check on me! So very thoughtful! I would recommend them in a heartbeat and definitely go back!”

Ariel K.

“I saw Dr. Lofgren after having a Mohs procedure to remove skin cancer from my face. Even with a wound about the size of a quarter on my left cheek, Dr. Lofgren assured me he’d be able to close the wound with a very small scar remaining. The procedure took approximately 35 minutes and I couldn’t be more pleased. Dr. Lofgren is a true professional in every sense of the word, with a first-rate staff. I highly recommend him.”


“I recently had several procedures performed at the PSCHR by Dr. Vonu and his team. The experience was well coordinated from the time of my consultation through the post-op care. The team’s confidence and knowledge made me feel comfortable which created a calming environment. I had no complications and the results are great! Thank you Dr. Vonu and team. Keep up the good work.”

Deborah M.

“A very positive experience! A diagnosis of breast cancer shocked me. I am very pleased with the results following my surgery. Cancer free and a super job on the reduction and lift! I definitely would recommend.”

Amber B.

“So thankful for my surgeon and his staff. He has done 2 surgeries for me and both results exceeded my expectations. Every person I spoke to was so helpful in preparation for my surgery. Thanks to everyone in the office!”


“Doctor Lofgren is hands down the best and most caring doctor I’ve encountered in his line of work. He doesn’t try to up sell you to any procedures other than what you’re looking to do. And he will tell you if what you think can be done cannot. Very refreshing attitude rarely found In his profession. Always personable as is his staff. PSCHR is definitely my choice.”

Debi B.

“If I could give Dr. Vonu and the entire staff a 10 star rating I would not hesitate. I don’t know where to begin or even have enough space here to tell you what a great practice PSCHR is. All communications via the phone, emails and in person leave you feeling well taken care of. To receive fresh flowers delivered the day after surgery from them is way above and beyond excellent care. It was the nicest surprise. Don’t look any further for the right plastic surgery center. You won’t find another one as great.”

Patricia F.

“Dr. Blanchard and his staff are so down to earth and helpful. Any type of surgery is a major decision. Dr. Blanchard presented all the pros and cons after listening to what we wanted. Absolutely outstanding.”

“The entire experience from consult to current was professional but personal. I would highly recommend my surgeon and his staff.”


“PSCHR has by far exceeded my expectations!!! From the initial call to schedule a consult to my post-op care, Dr.Blanchard and his team have been exceptional. Everyone in the office is very courteous, professional, timely and prompt with all matters (urgent or not). I had a small issue that needed to be addressed and the nurse assisting me went and above and beyond to assure I had a resolution. I can’t say enough how much I would recommend this team! Thank you again Dr. Blanchard!!!”

Angel C.

“I’m 8 days post opp from a mommy makeover with Dr. Zwicklbauer and I can not speak highly enough about him and his staff! I am in love with my new flat stomach. I teared up a little the first time I took the binder off and got to see the results. On top of fantastic results, Dr. Z. and his staff were wonderful to work with, from consultation, surgery and follow up appointments. I would recommend him to anyone considering this procedure!”

Christine B.

“They did an amazing job on my ab surgery! They were very polite and professional! I would recommend them to anyone!”
