"Got my boobs done here. Yes, they look amazing. But, more importantly (well, maybe not...), the whole experience was great. From the consultation through pre-op, the surgery and finally post-op care, everyone on staff did a great job. Every question I had was answered regardless of whether it was asked of Dr Sigal himself, the anesthesiologist, my personal coordinator (I absolutely adore Wilma!) or the office girls. It really is no wonder that Dr Sigal was on Washingtonian's Top 100 Doctors list. Also, they offer a "pain pump" that feeds a numbing agent into the affected area for a few days after surgery. It definitely decreases the discomfort level and isn't offered at all places. I highly, highly recommend the Austin-Weston Center and Dr Sigal for all of your cosmetic surgery needs."
"I had lipo of my flanks and stomach by Dr Robert Sigel of the Austin Weston group. He has done such an amazing job.. I can't be any happier. Dr.Sigel goes above and beyond to make you look good.

I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to have any procedure done. You will fall in love with him. Thank you doc!!"
"The service by everyone there is excellent. Dr Sigal is by far one of the most intelligent people I've ever met. I've had the best experiences there every time I go. It's truly a place I love and have sent many friends/family members. The results are worth the wait and the staff has become a cosmetic procedure family to me."
