43 and Needed a Tummy Tuck - Tampa, FL

5 out of 5 stars Mole Removal

20 Year Old Female with Melanoma Cancer - Tampa, FL

Jennifer really worked with my schedule to set follow up appointments. She is also very knowledgeable with how to take care of stitches after surgery is complete. She answered all of my questions very efficiently and always has a smile on her face when you walk in the door. I highly recommend Dr. Aguiar Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa.

Mid 40's and Really Needed a Neck Lift! - Tampa, FL

Dr. Aguiar is a very kind and considerate Surgeon! He listened to my every question and explained the procedure and recovery time. I really like his bedside manner and attention to detail.

5 out of 5 stars Lip Augmentation

Plumper Lips - Tampa, FL

Dr. Aguiar was patient and listened when I said I did not want to be over done. He explained that I would have swelling for a day or two, and I did, so I'm glad he warned me. He was kind and patient with me during the injections. The numbing block he did made the injections painless. Dr. Aguiar and his staff were warm and friendly but professional.

5 out of 5 stars Perlane

Sunken Eyes and Temples - Tampa, FL

Dr. Aguiar was great. He spent lots of time explaining why my face was aging this way. He gave me options of immediate results with Perlane or Sculptra which is a more subtle treatment that would take time to get rest but would last longer. I picked Perlane since I was going on vacation soon and wanted an immediate result. I was very happy that he took time to explain the different options. I just went back for my after photos and WOW. I am very happy.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Almost 6 months post op.

I found Dr. Aguiar through my insurance company. Very meticulous and friendly, and spends a lot of time with you. Every visit i've had with him I have felt reassured that I made the right decision.
