5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

63 Year Old - San Francisco, CA

Great website. Starting to get nervous about my tummy tuck coming up, and I don't even know if this is going through because I haven't been able to write reviews. I've been looking at a lot of pictures pre and post op, have been reading a lot of posts on what to expect. I feel relieved to know that there is somewhere I can go to when I start tripping on having this procedure done. I...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Great Results, 200% Improvement - San Francisco, CA

On 2012 I decided to replace my 25 year old implants. He didn't find my breasts to be a challenge, he agreed with the issues that needed to be fix but was super confident that it was something he could achieve without any problems. I also decided to get liposuction on my belly and flanks( I work out really hard, I'm about 5'5" and 118 lbs but after two kids I just cant loose the bulge of those...

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Type 1 Diabetic and a Mommy Makeover (Breast Augmentation & Tummy Tuck) - San Francisco, CA

I'm now PO Day 4 and I'm progressing everyday. I got to shower last night, removed the pain pump from the breasts and I saw Dr. Bermudez's work for the first time. I love, love my results and am extremely happy! This is what keeps me going.. I arrived at the hospital Tuesday morning at 6am as my surgery was scheduled for 7:30am. A nurse took my vitals, asked me questions about my health,...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

Breast Lift with Implants and Brachioplasty - a Wonderful Outcome for This "I Am Not Old" Lady - San Francisco, CA

I lost 165# and kept it off 10 years... Having Dr. Bermudez do my lift, implants, and "batwings" was one of the last parts of my transformation. And quite possibly, the piece no one but me will ever notice. Yet, I'm ecstatic. He did a masterpiece job (he is a perfectionist!) of making my breasts look years younger; my arms are already (4 months) ready for going sleeveless, and my clothes...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Perfect Results! San Francisco, CA

Words cannot describe how happy I am with my results. I have had both a breast augmentation and rhinoplasty with Dr. Bermudez and it was the best decision I have ever made. I feel better about my appearance and have gained so much confidence. My goal was to have natural looking results and Dr. Bermudez worked with me every step of the way to achieve the best outcome. His practice incorporates...

5 out of 5 stars Neck Lift

I Wanted to Get Rid of my Wattle! San Francisco, CA

I have had a "wattle" for many years and it was getting bigger each year. I did not have the surgery earlier because I could not be away from my job for the three week healing period. Since I retired, I really wanted to have this surgery. I was referred to Dr. Bermudez by a retiring Plastic Surgeon who had a very high opinion of Dr. Bermudez's skill sets. After an initial consultation with my...

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

3 Years Later and It is Still the Best Thing I Ever Did for Myself.... - San Francisco, CA

After losing more than 160 pounds, and keeping it off 10 years, I felt wonderful - except when I looked in the mirror. My face looked like melted candle wax, and when someone thought I was my best friend's mother (for the second time in 2 months), I burst into tears. It wasn't just vanity - I also needed to be job hunting, and although I was young enough for the health IT world, the truth...

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

34 Year Old Mom of 3 - Breast Augmentation and Liposuction to Abdomen - San Francisco, CA

I never thought I would want any plastic surgery on my body. I've always had small boobs and a bit of a thick middle (it's my body shape), but I was always fine with both overall... then..*ENTER THE IMPACT OF CHILDBEARING AND NURSING.* I had all 3 of my kids before I was 30, each two years apart, and nursed all 3 pretty much for a year each. After all of the pregnancies and nursing, my boobs...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

36 Years Old, 3 Kids, Active/Athletic, Desire Natural Look - San Francisco, CA

I am really feeling anxious, uncertain... Have cold feet. I have been contemplating a Breast Augmentation for ages. I do not like the way my flat chest looks in most fashions. And I love fashion and clothes!! So tired of wearing a heavy super padded bra that is always falling down. However, I usually am in workout attire and don't mind my small breasts in workout clothes. Personally, I think...
