It has been 4 months since my tummy tuck and I am so pleased with the results! Dr. Mendoza was helpful in answering any of my questions or concerns. My husband and I both appreciated his honesty when I went for my first visit. I went to talk about having Smart Lipo and as soon as he saw my stomach he said immediately that smart lipo would not give me the results I wanted, I would need a tummy tuck to give me those results. He didn't just tell me what I wanted to hear, he explained why it was the best procedure. I love the results and last week I went back to recieved Smart Lipo on a couple of areas. I could not be happier with the results and the staff was so supportive and wonderful! I would recommend Dr. Mendoza & his staff to my own family members, and that means a lot considering how much I love my family. Thank you Dr. Mendoza for giving me a new lease on life, your the best!

I gave Dr. Mendoza 5 stars in almost every area. The only reason I gave 4 stars in after care is 1) I am still in the after care process so while I am unsure of what that will entail I gave 4 stars because I am confident that aftercare will have all the attention to detail that pre-surgery had and 2) The staff checked in on me afterward instead of Dr. Mendoza WHICH is standard practice and not at all disappointing, but is one of those ways that surgeons could distinguish themselves from others. I heard of Bassin Surgery Center from several television shows. I learned of Dr. Mendoza from print media and the internet while researching possible procedures. I CHOSE Dr. Mendoza after doing my research into his background. I chose Dr. Mendoza specifically because he is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon (to me this said qualified), He was one of the premier doctors performing aqualipo and naturalfill on the breasts (which I wanted those procedures specifically), he also specialized in hand surgery(to me this said he is patient and has attention to detail as the hand is a very delicate and small part of the body) and he has done work in burn recontructive surgery (to me this said compassionate). His body of work seemed well rounded and embodied the qualities I was looking for in a plastic surgeon and gave me confidence to choose him as my surgeon for something where I needed the outcome to be visually pleasing. I feel the same now (after) as I did before, and that is I feel I chose well.

I did a lot of research prior to choosing this particular provider. Anyway, I've seen his work and its great. His bedside manners on the other hand, well, lets just say he's not very talkative unless you ask questions. Once he was done, he slipped off the gloves, said goodbye and that was that. I've worked with a lot of doctors/surgeons who are like this, not very soothing to their patients, but as long as the doctor is good at what he does, I can handle it. If you read my last update, it will explain more as to why I will never go back to him nor recommend him to other patients.
