“In preparation for my daughters wedding I approached Dr. vanVliet for a consultation on how I could look my best for our special day. My concerns were addressed and a plan of action was outlined. Now, only a few weeks later, I see a vibrant woman looking in the mirror feeling youthful, bright and excited about her rejuvenation. Thank you Dr. vanVliet and staff for making me feel the best I felt in years!”
“Dr.vanVliet is a warm, caring, compassionate doctor with a great bedsite manner. You feel that you can talk to her without feeling like there’s a wall. She was always very supportive and I always felt like I could call her. I would say that both surgeries were wonderful experiences.
I would recommend the Van Vliet Clinic and Dr.vanVliet in a heartbeat. I would not hesitate. My overall rating of my experience is a 10 out of 10!”
“Dr. vanVliet was very professional. She explained everything to me. At first, I was worried and I thought oh my gosh, I’m going to end up with no breasts, but she did the measurements and she said she’d have it totally proportionate to my body. Now they look amazing! For sure I feel more self-confident, there’s no question that I feel much better about myself.”
“I went to Kezia and I was very impressed with her knowledge and her professionalism. Going to someone new, someone who was seeing me for the first time can be a little bit anxiety causing because you don’t want to do anything that’s going to cause any permanent after-effects or anything. Kezia was very upfront about what to expect. She took me through the process very slowly to make sure I understood what to expect and she started at a lower level of treatment until I was comfortable moving to the higher form of the laser. I also did glycolic peels. I would do a glycolic peel, then I would do laser and then do glycolic peel … and followed this process for weeks. I got such wonderful results from it that even Kezia was amazed by the incredible results.”
“When I met with Dr. vanVliet I knew. I was good. I really didn’t have to look anywhere else. I knew that she was the one I was going with. I felt very comfortable with her demeanor. I loved her demeanor. She has a great aura and energy about her. She’s very compassionate. As for being her patient, everything was wonderful. She made me feel very calm and relaxed. She’s very reassuring. I was able to ask her anything and she addressed it right away. On the day of my surgery she knew that I was a little bit nervous. She held my hand, talked to me, told me that everything was going to be good … she could see that I was nervous and I was like Wow … that’s really nice to take that time and make your patient feel comfortable.”
“Dr. vanVliet definitely comes off like a perfectionist, like somebody who is artful about what she does. She cares about the aesthetic part. And I do too. I could tell by some of the before and after breast surgery photos on the website that she cares about the look and overall proportions and so I had a lot of faith in that … I didn’t have any concerns about that at all … I knew that I would come out looking good.
You can tell by her office that Dr vanVliet cares a lot about skin rejuvenation as well as surgical aesthetics … to me she seems like someone who is very detail oriented … and she cares about how things look. Her office is beautifully decorated and very pretty looking– she cares about things looking pretty and I can draw that conclusion because my boobs definitely look pretty. And I had every faith that she would do my surgery safely and accurately. I knew it wouldn’t be sloppy … I knew she would be thorough and meticulous and I was proved to be correct.”
“Dr vanVliet is wonderful. She’s very friendly. Even if I’m in the clinic for my laser treatments, if she’s in the office she’ll make a point of coming in and saying hi and having a look at me herself and making suggestions.
I love Kezia too. She’s very knowledgeable about what she’s doing. She’s very thorough. During her laser treatments she always checks to see if there’s any discomfort … to make sure that I’m okay. And she always calls to make sure I’m fine after the fact.
I have recommended the Van Vliet clinic to a number of people now. They’re all wonderful!”
“Last year Dr. vanVliet performed a Bilateral Breast Reduction with liposuction on my daughter. This was the best thing we could have done for her and what a difference it has made. Shopping for clothes no longer ends in tears … you’ve never seen anyone happier to buy off the rack.”
A Happy Mothers Report
“Dr. vanVliet is top notch. She goes by the book … she’s not one that is above God – she doesn’t talk to you like she has the power of God or anything. She knows her work. She puts people at ease … there’s not another person at Southlake that can match her. You can see how much she cares and loves her job. She sees her patients as equal and whole people. She looks you in the eye when she speaks to you. She never talks down. She treats her patients as she would her friends. She’s very caring and passionate. She’s so warm … you feel the love!”
“I would recommend Dr. vanVliet to anyone. Her style is comforting but direct. She is very honest and told me exactly what I could expect from my breast reduction and tummy tuck surgery and the recovery. I was never worried. She was very thorough, and covered off everything. In fact, she had prepared me so well that after surgery, during my recovery, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it all went exactly the way she said it would … it was so easy and I was so at ease throughout it all I wished I done it years ago. It was an amazing experience overall thanks to her.”
“Dr. vanVliet is an excellent doctor. She inspires confidence. She asks pointed questions … like why? And if your reasons are negative, that might deter her from doing surgery. She listens. I was healthy physically, so that wasn’t an issue for me, but she is a stickler for that. She encourages you but she’s not pushy about it. She tells you the good, the bad, the positives and the negatives. You don’t feel hesitant or uncomfortable. You don’t feel rushed or pushed. You just feel confident with the decisions that you’ve made.
The clinic was an extremely comfortable place. It doesn’t feel like a medical office at all. It has a very pleasant atmosphere. The people who work for Dr. vanVliet are very congenial and helpful. It was interesting that in the waiting room, people were ready to talk to one another. It was very relaxed and friendly.
After an initial consult with another plastic surgeon, I was disappointed when she hesitated to do anything. She was worried about complications, but really, there could be complications from any surgery. So I thought “Oh well, I’ll just have to live with it.” I didn’t get another opinion because I thought that they’re all going to say the same thing. Leave it along.
But upon meeting Dr. vanVliet all the negativity disappeared. She was so positive and caring. She turned a “can’t be done” situation into a “can be done” … she made it a possibility.
There was nothing negative about my experience from the day I first walked in the door to my last visit. There’s such a gratifying feeling with it … I’d have to give the first doctor a zero because Dr. vanVliet was a 10!”
“I would recommend Dr vanVliet and her clinic in a heartbeat. I would not hesitate!
Dr. vanVliet is a warm, caring, compassionate doctor with a great bedside manner. You feel that you can talk to her without feeling like there’s a wall. She was always very supportive and I always felt like I could call her. I would say that both my breast reduction and tummy tuck surgeries were wonderful experiences.”
“Dr. vanVliet is amazing. I couldn’t ask for a better doctor before during or after. The whole staff was excellent too. I would have my tummy tuck again in a heartbeat! I would definitely recommend Dr. vanVliet and her clinic. After my tummy tuck my girlfriends and I got together for a tummy tuck party. They were amazed at how good it looked. They were like OMG she did an amazing job … what’s her name again? I showed my new tummy to my relatives back in Grenada who had seen how bad my stomach was before the surgery – they were so impressed it was like “she’s a miracle worker”. I went to a few doctors for consultations, but they didn’t feel right. It didn’t feel like they were hearing what you were saying, and you felt a bit like a number. I wanted to feel comfortable and listened to. I didn’t want a doctor that I felt scared or uncomfortable asking questions of or calling. Even my husband loved it at the Van Vliet Clinic. They included him and let him be present and involved in my care.
Out of 10, I would give the Van Vliet Clinic a 15!”
“As sisters we have struggled with our weights since puberty…then two years ago we had gastric by-pass surgery. With our new tool in place we met with tremendous success in our weight loss efforts but the excitement of being a thin person was dampened by the loose, flabby, unattractive excess skin that no amount of exercise or diet could diminish. Our family doctor referred us to Dr. vanVliet to explore the prospect of plastic surgery – a thought that both excited and scared us. Upon our first meeting with Dr. vanVliet it was clear that she has a profound passion for the work she does. She was warm, caring and understanding of our concerns and desires. She was genuinely excited about what she would be able to do for us and was great at helping us decide what to focus on, all the while giving us realistic expectations of the results. Her follow up care has been stellar. When we meet with her we feel like we are the most important clients she has. Her support team (Linda at reception and Margaret the office’s RN) are equally professional, helpful and supportive.”

“I first met Dr. vanVliet and her team a couple of months ago and I find them to be very professional and knowledgeable, but also warm and personable. I have been extremely happy with the treatments I have received. Their approach is to enhance the clients natural look, so that you like yourself only better, more refreshed, younger. I would gladly recommend her to anyone who is wanting to look their best, at any age!”
“I have always had large breasts starting at the tender age of 13 and have had my share of being picked on. Dr. vanVliet completed my breast reduction surgery on September 24, 2013 and as of March 2014, I have lost a total of 27.5 pounds! I am more active now and can actually run once again with my children, and not worry if I have the right bra on and whether or not my breasts will stay in place. Dr. vanVliet has changed my life for the better, I am now more confident and LOVE the way I look. I can actually look into the mirror and tell myself how beautiful I am. When people as me how the surgery went and if it hurt, i tell them the pain was very minimal and this surgery changed my life for the better, not just physically but emotionally as well. I know for a fact that if I ever want to have plastic surgery for any reason, I will be consulting with Dr. vanVliet first and foremost. Thank you for everything you have done Dr. vanVliet, you are an amazing lady- skilled, tender, and kind. My 11 year old daughter says, ‘Thank you for helping my mommy know how beautiful she’s really is’. I recommend everyone to her, which I already have been doing!”
“I have been a patient with Dr. vanVliet for about a year and my first consultation with Dr. Van Vliet was somewhere in November of 2013. We talked about a breast reduction because I’ve always been very large chested. She was great at explaining how the surgery was going to go, what I’d expect. Finally May 27 2014 I had my breast reduction and have been extremely happy and love how I look, I feel amazing, everything that I wear fits perfect. It was hard for me to make the decision because I am young still, but I knew I had to do it and Dr.VanVliet and the whole staff made me feel comfortable and I knew I was going to be taken care of. Never will I regret this decision and I want Dr.VanVliet to know how thankful I am for the amazing work she did. I would recommend her to all my family and friends.”
