Well, after a ton of research, Dr. Salama was exactly the right choice. He is extremely professional and the absolute best for the job. My only regret is that I hadn't done it sooner. I actually wish I could give him more stars. Dr. Salama (and his staff) exceeded all of my expectations. I did a ton of research and went to a Seattle doctor to get an in-face consultation and alternate opinion. Dr. Salama wins, hands down. I understand why so many gals come from so far away to have the best doctor perform this surgery. From beginning to now (2 weeks post-op) he has been honest about the expected outcome on someone at my age and body style (51 year old skinny white girl) and very professional in every way. His staff is well trained, experienced, helpful and patient. I traveled to Florida from Washington State to have this done and I have no complaints and no regrets. I was worried he wouldn't be able to find enough fat to make it worth it. Once again, he exceeded my expectations and somehow found 1100cc for each side! Even if only half of this sticks around I will be thrilled. I could go on forever.....I am that pleased...

Dr. Salama is very busy, but very compassionate and friendly. He doesn't rush you and lets you ask all the questions and raise all concerns you have. It's hard to make that guy chuckle though. He's very serious, but focused, which is a great thing. I'm very please with my choice. His staff is awesome too. I swear they will move mountains for you if you need them to :-)

i rate this doctor a+. i had the procedure fat transfer to buttocks for the 2nd time and this time dr. salama did the right job. he took enough fat in the proper places which should have been taken out of me from my previous doctor i used in massachusetts. dr. salama has a lot more experience with these procedures of the fat transfer to buttocks than they do in morth america. he performs them more often and knows where and how to place the fat. i am on my 3rd week out and i am also getting lythatic massages which my previous doctor did not have do. i already see the results and feel much better. i would get more done with dr. salama in the future and i would look no where else. i also with recommend dr.moises salama to anyone looking to improve themselves.

3 stars were given for time spent with me because I really only seen doctor at my consultation and right before surgery. Phone and email received 3 stars because there were many times I asked doctor to return my call,and I received none. I blame front desk employees for not giving doctor my callback messages. There is too many people in the front office and at times it was like the right hand didnt know what the left was doing.

Dr. Salama is by far one of the best BBL doctor & all his staffs at ELITE PLASTIC SURGERY, (Ruben, Nomie, the anesthesiologist & nurses & Celia, the massage therapist) are all superb!!! Dr. Salama has great bed side manner & does not rush his patients. He's got great aesthetic ability & a true artist. I highly recommend him to all especially to those smaller patients wishing to have a big beautiful booty.

After my procedure he said goodbye and that was all so we did not spend much time together but I was more than happy with the nurses' company

Dr. Salama and his staff is the best! Ruben, Nomie, Jennifer, Ceila, and Larry (the driver). I am so blessed that I switched to him. I have had the greatest experience you can imagine for a surgery so serious. They have made the experience very comforting and they are so welcoming. I can't say enough great things about everyone at Elite Plastic Surgery!

Staff was great and Dr. S gave me what I wanted! Before he did my surgery I told what I wanted to look like in details. Told him that wanted to clear the air and make sure we were both on the same page. I even asked him what was the most that he injected into each cheek he said 1300cc and I told him that is what I want and some more. He laughed in I replied I'm dead serious. I told him I don't want people guessing that knows me nor wounder I want my friend.s and others know I got an ass now!

Wow is definitely the word.The staff of the elite plastic surgery was great. Noami was such a great and helpful person through out it all. The assistance in this office was stupendous. Rueben Salama was also very accommodating and reassuring of any questions and concerns, same as Noami. If there was anything you have to ask, they are always willing to answer them. Dr.Salama was very professional, and wanting to as well express your needs and concerns. He lets you know everything about the procedure, and the risks as well as the benefits. He did an AMAZING job and I am so lucky ,blessed and thankful to have such a great doctor who is so good at what he does. They never make you feel like you are out of the loop because they are always letting you know everything in advance or wanting to know if you have anything else to ask.And Larry the driver is awesome and very helpful and soo nice and kind!hes great and always willing to help when you need it!i hope to recover and only get better along the way!

DR. NUNEZ THE ANESTHESIOLOGIST IS VERY VERY TALENTED AND COMFORTING, I TOLD HIM I WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT THE ANESTHESIA AND ITS AFFECT ON MY STOMACH (I HAVE SEVERE IBS) AND HE SHOWED ME THE LIQUID MEDICATION HE PUTS INTO THE ANESTHESIA TO HELP WITH THAT I WAS SO IMPRESSED AT HOW HE TRIED TO CALL ME DOWN. DR SALAMA IS VERY FRIENDLY, VERY ATTENTIVE, VERY PLEASANT, AND VERY VERY GOOD AT WHAT HE DOES, I LOVED HOW HE TOOK NOTES ON WHAT I WANTED DURING MY CONSULT THAT IMPRESSED ME. LAST TIME I WENT TO HIS OFFICE HE ASKED ME IF I WAS OK AND I SAID I WAS HUNGRY LOL AND HE GAVE ME HIS BAG OF CHEETOS! HANDS DOWN HE’S LEAVING ALL THE SURGEONS IN FLORIDA (AND PROBABLY IN THE US) IN THE DUST. I WOULD SAY ALSO IF YOU WANT HIM TO DO YOUR SURGERY EVEN IF YOU DON’T HAVE ALL THE $ NOW JUST BOOK A DATE, BECAUSE HE GETS SOOOOOOOOOOOOO MANY PATIENTS FROM THE US AND LITERALLY AROUND THE WORLD FROM AN ECONOMICS POINT OF VIEW HIS PRICES WILL KEEP GOING UP ITS JUST INEVITABLE BECAUSE OF THE HIGH INFLUX OF PATIENTS. SO BOOK YOUR DATE BEFORE IT DOES BECAUSE THIS GUY IS THE NEW MENDIETTA IF NOT BETTER. RUBEN HIS BROTHER IS MY FAVORITE, WE SAT AND GOSSIPED FOR LIKE AN HOUR THE FIRST DAY I MET HIM ABOUT EVERYTHING. THEY REALLY MAKE SURE YOU FEEL LIKE FAMILY. NOMIE IS GORGEOUS AND FRIENDLY AND WAS ALWAYS POLITE WHENEVER I CALLED HER CELL.

Dr Salama is an amazing surgeon with the skill of an artist. His amazing transformations have aided me in my decision to choose him as my PS

The 1 start ratings are because I have not had the procedure yet. I will correct when possible.

Love Dr. Salama he is AWSOME!! Not as just a Dr. but also as a person. Everyone in his staff from the front desk to the back office including everyone at the surgery center were very nice... BIG shout out too the anesthesiologist, not only was he easy on the eyes he was also one of the few people who can keep up with my witty personality that made for some interesting conversations. As far as the 2 star wait time i belive it was caused from complications during the surgery scheduled before mine. Also my follow up appt. ran behind, however thats to be expeced at times when ur seeing one of the best surgeons on the PLANET :)
Posted by Getabooty
I changed my rating to all 5 stars because I didnt have to wait and he is in a different office and these people are so much more courteous than the ghetto office he was before. He spent a lot of time with me and he really and truly hooked me up. I am now a happy camper

I can't really rate the doctor because I haven't met or spoken to Dr Salama...but hs brother Ruben is awesome. I'm really confident Dr Salama will be able to meet my expectations.

Dr Salama and staff have been great so glad I chose him. He is very realistic and friendly so is Ruben and all the other staff. I also appreciated how the payment process went I payed out of pocket and they did not ever call me about payments or stress me out which was nice. I would pick Salama and his team a million times over.

I have nothing but raved reviews for Dr. Salama and the entire staff. Everyone went above and beyond and service was truly 5 star.

- Don't say my name. Discretion is a must, thats why my heads chopped off of my photos. - Salama is THEE BOMB! Even with me having a nervous breakdown about my butt being too big, he still maintains his sense of humor. When I saw him after, he said, "So are you still freaking out?" LOL. Anyway, I am good now. He inserted 1100ccs which I was only expected 600-700 (I didn't tell him this) so to counter it he gave me a smaller garment that actually compressed the butt. WORKED LIKE A CHARM! I love my ASS! It has not shrunk at all since Day 8 post-op when I put on the smaller garment, its only gotten softer and my body is shaped just like it is with the garment on! Kinda cool! If I hadn't compressed it, I am sure it would have shrunk more. To the point! SALAMA and his staff are GREAT! I am accustomed to 5 star arrangements, so I would say they are 3.5-4star far as setting, etc. However his work is that of 5 star and my advice is to BOOK SOON with him. I expect him to be one of the most expensive BBL surgeons in the country VERY SOON. I saw at least 5 ladies in there who had recently undergone surgery recently and I think he will only get more popular. He can only do so much, so simple economics says his price will go up!

I feel like I made the best decision choosing Dr Salama, he was very informative and I was very pleased with his honesty, input and professionalism. He asked me what I wanted and helped me set realistic goal for myself. He wasn't brief, he took his time and answered all of my questions ( I had to ask 'am I getting on ya nerves') but he was very polite and said 'no' he's very down to earth and that's what made my experience fun!!! He has the "BEST" staff his brother Ruben is super cool and he loves his job they have a great team. Nomie and Jennifer are beautiful and very concerned and answer all your questions in a timely manner. Even the massage therapist Eilyn is wonderful I love her so much :) And Larry (a nice little old man who gets the job done) I would def recommend this Dr to everyone. Also Ruben made the payment process 'cool beans' and I didn't have to worry :) I def made the right decision..Thank God!!!

Salama and the staff are awesome. Salama explained all the risk very well. He made sure i had realistic expectations for the results. No sugar coating, said it can be a difficult recovery. Office is very clean. Surgery center very clean. I'm only 24 hours post op so will update later.
