“Dr.Shu is just an all around first class professional”

6/6/13 – I am a 41 year-old male who had high definition lipo of the abdomen, flanks, and lower back over one year ago. I cannot express how pleased I am with Dr. Shu’s work. To make a long story short, I had battled, since I was a youth, stubborn pockets of fat that seemed to be resistant to every type of exercise and diet. Even as an avid “fitness buff” I just could not get rid of my gut, no matter how much cardio and dieting I did. It took me seven years to finally make the decision to have the surgery done. I was initially looking for standard liposuction when I met with Dr. Shu regarding another condition. I was shocked when I found out Dr. Shu was the first in the state to offer high definition liposuction. I wanted that classic “6 pack” that I had been trying for all my life. Today I can see my abdominal definition for the first time in my life. The reason I highly recommend Dr Shu is: First, he actually took the time to be very honest with me about what to expect and what not to expect. He listened to my concerns and answered every question I asked him with great honesty and integrity. Secondly, he did not come off as a businessman, but rather a doctor whose first priority was the quality of his work. His fees were very reasonably priced compared to other doctors I had seen who were quick to discuss their much higher than average fees up front. All in all the quality of Dr. Shu’s work speaks for itself and is very reasonably priced. Not to mention, he is just an all around first class professional. The actual surgery was a very positive experience. I was so impressed with how professional and caring his surgical staff was in the surgery room. They made me feel right at home. Before I knew it the surgery was over and I was on the road to recovery. Lastly, let me just say how important it is when choosing a surgeon to choose wisely. I have heard many unfortunate stories from individuals who had substandard cosmetic surgery. If I were to do it all over again I would have no reservations about selecting Dr. Shu. My self-esteem is much better and I feel so much better about my body. I realize the doctor removed a “package” of fat, which might have never been removed by exercise alone due to a handicapped metabolism. The liposuction has helped my overall health and my self-image, as well as having long-term benefits (alleviating or eliminating type-2 diabetes later in my life). The ongoing battle to maintain my weight has been completely rehauled since my surgery. I work out regularly to keep the health and tone of my body, and my diet consists of eating protein and healthy portions. Being “3-4″ slimmer in the waist is great incentive! If anything, the process has served to increase my resolution to becoming the best I can be. Sincerely, J.F. St. Paul, MN

“The end result in all three procedures exceeded my expectations”

3/22/2013 – I am a 69 year old lady that recently had a “Thigh Lift” performed by Dr. Shu. I am highly pleased with the result. Although I am within about 10 pounds of what the weight chart says I should be for my age and height, I tend to carry extra weight in my upper arms and thigh area. I do jog 2 miles a day 5 days a week in an effort to stay reasonably fit and toned. Whereas this effort probably did help to tone my legs to some extent, still- the inner thigh area remained excessively flabby and unattractive. I can wear a skirt/dress and look quite nice- but to wear blue jeans ( or trousers of any kind) as just about every female in America does these days- I would automatically appear to be heavier than what I actually am. “So what- some of you might say if you read my letter- isn’t it about having fun and forgetting how one looks in a pair of blue jeans?” Well, as hard as I would try to adapt to that attitude, it did bother me. I would return to wearing my skirts and kind of “standing out” and not in a good way (is the way it felt to me) when out @ the mall or in most casual social situations. I previously have had several procedures performed on me by Dr. Shu. He performed a “Mini Face Lift” on me several years ago and the result is very good. Thank you, Dr. Shu! In the summer of 2012, Dr. Shu performed a “Vaser Scarless Breast Reduction” on me.The result is not only visually more appealing in the way I look in clothes (well, not jeans) but almost completely diminished constant pain from a permanent upper right shoulder soft tissue injury sustained in a car accident some years ago. People have commented how much better I look but cannot seem to put their finger on why it might be. Probably the fact that my facial expression is no longer grimaced in constant pain is a huge contributing factor, I would think. Thank you, Dr. Shu! Now it felt that I wanted to complete my new look by having a “Thigh Lift” and feeling comfortable in the way I look in jeans. I did not for a moment consider seeking out another surgeon. When one has had two previous very positive experiences with both the surgeon and his staff, why change? Dr. Shu, true to form, performed his magic once again! I recently put on a pair of “skinny jeans” and look plain right down good in them. It has never been my goal to look years younger. I do not mind looking my age- I just want to look good for my age. With the help of Dr. Shu and his amazing skill as a cosmetic surgeon, I think I have achieved that. Thank you, Dr. Shu! I just want to say to all you folks out there desiring a cosmetic procedure, Dr. Steven Shu is the surgeon for you! I have had a total of three very good experiences and complete satisfaction with the outcome with Dr. Shu and his caring, competent staff. I really cannot sing their praises enough! Dr. Shu is completely honest. In all three of my cosmetic procedures, Dr. Shu did not promise anything that he did not deliver. The end result in all three procedures exceeded my expectations and I am very happy. Thank you Dr. Shu! – S.A. Minneapolis

“I would refer my friends to Dr. Shu.”

2/25/2013 – Dr. Shu and staff were always friendly, knowledgeable and on time. I feel that I was treated with respect and my concerns were addressed as they arose. The recovery time didn’t take very long, as explained before-hand. The end result looked great, and I am a satisfied customer. I would refer my friends to Dr. Shu. – SK

“Everything is five star”

I am very happy with Dr. Shu and his wonderful assistants and staff. The procedure went smooth and the results are more than expected. Follow up is wonderful. I would not consider going anywhere else. The people, the cost, the results, everything is five star. – L.P. Minnesota

“I will definitely continue to use his services for all my needs.”

11/7/2012 – I had suffered through and recovered from a liposuction procedure elsewhere that was a complete nightmare with several complications in recovery. I was definitely not satisfied with the work done and I decided to visit Dr. Shu for a consultation. I was completely impressed by his expertise and felt completely at ease with his knowledge of the subject. He advised that I needed more lipo and a mini tummy tuck to repair the work previously done. I knew that I was not an easy case, after 4 pregnancies with 2 cesarean sections, my age of 61 and the previous liposuction has left me with loose skin and areas of scarred fat that would not go away. Once I scheduled the appointment, everything completely as planned. The procedure was quick, professional and much than I anticipated. I was utterly amazed at the ease of recovery this time and the professionalism of all the personnel involved in my procedure. Five days after the procedure, the outcome has already made a tremendous change in my torso and, I know that once I have completely recuperated, it will be a definite improvement of a condition that I have lived with for over 40 years. I can actually consider wearing a two piece bathing suit. I regret not seeing Dr. Shu from the beginning and would recommend him to anyone interested in any kind of elective cosmetic surgery. He is an expert in his field, meticulous in his work and completely honest. I will definitely continue to use his services for all my needs. – M.J.

“Dr. Shu truly makes his cosmetic surgery the tops of the country!”

10/25/2012 – Dr. Shu and his staff are very great and professional! He is very much a perfectionist and it shows from his staff to his expert treatment. Dr. Shu truly makes his cosmetic surgery the tops of the country! – C.F.

“This place is fantastic!”

My experience at Shu Cosmetics was great. The staff were friendly and willing to answer any questions I had. Dr. was great as well. He always was thorough with questions and my procedure. With Dr. Shu’s work, I am now able to wear the swimsuit of my choice with no embarrassment. Overall, this place is fantastic! – B.B.

“I would definitely come back again”

I would recommend Dr.Shu to anyone. Very good doctor with great experience. The staff in the office is great, especially Bonnie. Everyone made me feel comfortable. Everyone was very professional and the new office looks amazing. I would definitely come back again. Great job Dr.Shu – K.M.

“I will recommend Dr. Shu time and time again!”

In 2011 I had a Full Lipoabdominoplasty after having loose skin after my 2 pregnancies. Dr Shu and his staff were FANTASTIC! I am very pleased with their customer service and with my results! I also had a Breast Augmentation with saline breast implants to fill out my deflated breasts post pregnancy I am VERY please with my results:) I will recommend Dr. Shu time and time again! – K. D.

“September 2011”

I am writing because the care I received from Dr Shu and his staff was exceptional. I had a tummy tuck and liposuction done in April and could not be happier. I have wanted to do this for many years but I waited and now I am so glad I did. I don’t think I could have gone anywhere else and received the results I have. Dr Shu, Sarah and Bonnie have been over the top in my care. They took the time to explain each step to me and made sure I understood. They made follow calls to ensure my comfort and health. I would recommend Dr Shu and his staff to anyone who is looking for a facility that truly having you walking out with the confidence we all want. Thank you Dr Shu – you truly are the best!! – AB

“June 2011”

I had natural breast augmentation with fat transfer and Vaser Hi Def LipoSculpture performed on my stomach in 2010. I was a little skeptical at first, but once I had the procedures done, all my worries were gone. It’s been almost a year, and I can say that there is a very noticeable difference in the appearance of my breasts; my stomach also looks great. Dr. Shu is a true artist, as well as an extremely professional and detailed surgeon. Not only do I feel more confident now, it’s also exciting to know that if I plan to further enhance my breasts in the future, I can do so by using the newest fat transfer technology – Stem Cell Enhanced natural breast augmentation. – JQ

“November 2010”

“Thank you” seems inadequate as I try to express my gratitude to you. You and all your staff have treated me with great respect and kindness. I have always felt comfortable through everything. I especially want to thank you for the extra surgery time you gave me and the perfect, beautiful new body and leg. You are an angel and a gifted, inspired surgeon!! God bless you always!! Thank you so much for everything you have done for me. Just a note of thanks for all you have done in such a short amount of time since my first call to you! In less than a year I have sexy body and a whole new leg..LOL! I have been wanting this for a long time, but there was always an issue that prevented me from actually going through with it….I think as you get older, you worry less about those things that prevent you from doing things and you say, “This isn’t about anyone but ME!” I wanted to feel complete. Now I can finally wear clothes that compliment my body. I want to thank you for your encouragement throughout my procedure and better decision. Thank you so much for your expertise, advice and professionalism. From the moment I wanted into the office I felt completely cared for and in good hands. I love the new look and feel like 42 isn’t going to be so bad after all! I would like to thank you for making my experience such a positive one. It’s wonderful to be around such positive, upbeat, kind Doc. and the ladies! It was so nice to be your patient and your staff and you are such a great team. My life has changed. People keep giving me compliments. Thanks a lot for your patience. I can’t say enough about Dr. Shu and his staff. ALL of them are wonderful, respectful and kind. I was made to feel comfortable every step of the way. Words cannot explain how happy I am with everything Dr. Shu has done for me. I have been treated like an individual and Dr. Shu has listened to me and explained to me. He is the BEST! I never once felt as though I was just a number. All you are quite professional, yet loving and caring…a rare combination in today’s medical environment! I felt as though my heart was as well cared for as my body! It has been pleasure being cared for by such great people!! I was truly impressed with Dr. Shu’s skill as a surgeon and as human being. He answered all my of my questions and did a fantastic job on the surgery. – Aman V

“November 2010”

I was very impressed with the time Dr. Shu spent with me discussing my expectations and my options to achieve the results I wanted. The nursing staff was very warm and put me a ease immediately. Enhancing or rejuvenating oneself can be a stressful decision, but Dr. Shu and his staff made it easy from day one. Even financing was simple! I was shocked by how quickly I healed and saw results. The body line I wanted was apparent within just a couple weeks. I am thrilled with my results! – UP

“October 2010”

After I read the advertising about Dr. Steven Shu’s experience and the variety of procedures he’s performing, I knew I would be in very good hands. I had two procedures: neck liposuction and fat transfer to my face from my back. My face and neck look much younger and tighter, and my friends have noticed that too. I look great! Thank you, Dr. Shu, Sarah and Bonnie, you are a great team and I’ll be your big advocate to my aging friends. – Liza E
