Cosmetic Surgery reviews in Edinburg

    I have had a face lift that most people do not realize - the mark of GOOD plastic surgery is that it looks natural and only two people who see me closely and have previously worked in cosmetic surgery have noticed it - both were very complementary and insisted on knowing who did such wonderful work. My last major surgery was to take excessive skin off my arms after losing more than 100 lbs - the surgery went so well, I followed all instructions and you are given all instructions, medical items you might need such as gauze and arm supports, told how to use everything, provided with written instructions, and have a 24/7 phone to call with any questions. Dr. Rios not only got rid of tons of excess skin, but his placement of the surgery meant that early on I could wear sleeveless dresses and no one noticed - within the year I was able to wear a strapless formal to a wedding. I especially appreciate the care that goes into counseling you before a procedure, and the after-care which covers not just keeping healthy but good ways to help healing. I think the provision of the instructions, the packages of after-care materials, the care in giving medications all go a long way to achieve a good result. The best asset of Dr. Rios' practice is his own knowledge and talent, his consideration of each patient and his wonderful staff - you are always comfortable asking them a question or for advice. This is the only plastic surgery office I would even consider and I continue to use it for botox treatment for migraine and facials and filler - it really makes you feel you are working with friends and when you leave this office you feel confident and comfortable.

    back in After my very FIRST surgery on September 18, 2009 I developed a hardening of the left breast. The left breast did not feel natural and was high up leaving the left to look much lower. You (Dr. Rios) told me you could make the right one look like the left. I was all for it not knowing any better and putting all of my trust in you. Then when I went home, and decided to do my own research I discovered that my left breast had developed a Capsular Contracture. Capsular Contracture is a word and a definition that I learned from the internet. Thanks to my own research. It was beyond my belief that my own Dr. would recommend making my right breast look like the left one (the one with the capsular contracture) without even expressing concern about the contracture. After bringing it to your attention, that I wanted the contracture fixed and made to look like the right breast your words were and I quote, ���this is why breast lifts are not my favorite procedure.��� That would have been really nice to know before you had said you could do the lift with no problem. So now, after I tell you I want the contracture fixed you finally agree to fix it. Then after my SECOND surgery my left breast is still up higher than the right with a lot of fullness on the top. My breast look completely different from each other not only do the shape of the breast look different, the feel, and my nipples are completely different. All this, there are so many things I am still unhappy with, but don���t bother to bring them up because you always just seem to talk your way out of it, with some medical explanation that does not make any sense to me. My stomach being lopsided, the staph infection, which I knew I had, but your medical assistant (not a nurse) said, ���Oh its healing fine, everything looks good.��� Meanwhile, there was a foul smell coming from my incision. When you finally took the time to look at my cut, you promptly put me on an antibiotic to kill the infection, that your medical assistant said was healing well. After this cut finally healed the scarring was/is horrific. But all of that was still not a concern, since my breast were still looking so different. Your words after the second surgery were, ���at least we conquered the contracture.��� My left breast was now a little more mobile, but still hard, and much higher than my right breast. I could not understand how you couldn���t fix them to look the same until you told me that you put the left implant above the muscle and left the right under the muscle. Just typing that and saying it out loud, it is so obvious that 2 different procedures will leave you with 2 different looks! But what do I know, I am not a Dr. So again, I go and do my own research, with medical professional friends, internet and books and find out my breast will never look the same, with having 2 different procedures done to them. This is a big worry, so at this time in tears I beg you to fix it and either put both implants above the muscle or both under so that they look the same. You agree and also suggest changing the saline implants to gel. This is on my mind night and day. This problem has caused problem in my life. I don���t like my husband to see me nude, I am grouchy and on edge, unable to concentrate. I also have to be careful with what I wear since the difference in breasts is clearly visible even with clothes on. I call your office days before the surgery requesting to talk to you about it once again and I get your nurse Lisa who is also your wife. Without knowing the history of all of the surgeries I have been through, I express to her my concern and tell her that I want to make sure that both implants are either above the muscle or both under and she said, ���Of course because if you were to do one under and one over you would come out with two different looks.��� My response was, ���exactly my point! That���s what the dr did to me; he gave me two different looks!��� She then back peddles and I guess looks at my file as she tells me to hold on. Comes back and says, ���Oh well he���s the Dr. and he knows what he���s doing, he���s been doing this for a long time, and we can���t tell him how to do his job.��� So I go into my THIRD, in June of 2010 with my full trust that you will fix it this time. Before the surgery I am still terrified, because I am losing my trust in you by this time. I tell my mother and my husband to be there so that they can make sure you follow my request and either put both implants above the muscle or either both over. Needless to say, I endured my 3 surgery in June and as soon as the swelling went down, I could see and feel that there was not a difference made. My husband informs me that the Dr. had explained to him, that he placed my right breast 75 percent over the muscle. That is absurd. Either the implant is over the muscle or it���s not. You don���t have to be a surgeon to see and feel that obviously the left breast is still over the muscle up high, feeling extremely harder, causing a constant excruciating pain, and is even causing the vain on my chest much more visible. The right breast is sitting lower, looking natural and feels natural as it always has. In the recovery room, nurse Lisa explains to me, ���keep in mind your breasts are not twins, they are sisters.��� This sounded like something she has told many patients before. That comment also made me feel as though, she already knew that my breast did not look the same. At this point, my breasts do not even look like cousins, much less sisters. Honestly, going into this I was expecting my breast to look like twins, but at this point if they would look like sisters I probably would have been content. For the amount of money I spent, I don���t think I should settle for the results you have given me. The sad thing is that I have paid $12,000.00 and feel worse about myself that I did pre-surgery. I am in constant pain, cannot lay flat on my chest, it hurts for my husband to hug me close to him, I cannot wear a swimsuit. I don���t know what is worse the physical pain, or the emotional pain that I have been enduring for almost a year now. I feel robbed, conned, lied to, and emotionally drained.

    I don't see him but I see his assistants who are trained to do this procedure. They do a good job but frequently are running late; they are not punctual.
