Full TT, Breast Lift and Reduction - Dominican Republic

My Doctor, MY DOCTOR, absolutely FANTASTIC! While researching for a PS on realself, I came accross Dr. Estevez Hernández. He was not the first doc I saw, but his professionalism, attentiveness, and passion for this career made me decide for him. He was very sincere at the time of consultation, I came with my idea in mind and he gave me his recommendations, ALL very accurate, valid and results are being showed. He has an amazing team of people working with him, from his Secretary, to the Masseuse, to his Surgical Assistant. The care, respect, and love I feel whenever I visit his practice, has made me recommend friends and whoever asks, to him. As stated before, my experience has been great in all senses, but nothing would have been as such if I would have the same without his support and encouragement. Dr. Estevez, THANK YOU FOR CHANGING MY LIFE!

38 Year Old Mommy Make Over - Dominican Republic

Dr Estevez is extremely professional and passionate about what he does. He takes much pride in his work and I never felt neglected while under his care. He is available at any time to answer questions or concerns. The level of care I received down to the nurses was superior and impeccable. I am from Florida and I traveled to DR because I was referred by a friend who has been a patient of Dr Estevez for years. I have to admit I was a little nervous but after my first meeting with Dr Estevez and having experience in the medical field, I knew I wasn't dealing with just any doctor. He truly cares about you as a patient. I never felt like just another patient. Every encounter felt like the first; caring, empathetic, professional, humble, selfless and truly passionate about his work. It's inspiring to listen and watch him work. My Spanish is limited and to my surprise he speaks perfect English so I didn’t have to worry about communicating important information that I didn’t know how to explain in Spanish. His clinic is beautiful and well equipped with all the latest equipment necessary for any medical need and/or emergency. Overall, I had a wonderful experience and would recommend anyone to Dr Estevez. Awesome doctor!!!!!

BBL is Scheduled Dr. Estevez - Dominican Republic

Dr. Rafael Estevez I could never ask for such a great doctor. He knew how to reasonably sculpt my body according to what I already had, i.e. the amount of fat and what my body could handle. He completely cares about his patients and consciously maintains a genuine relationship with his patients. He speaks excellent English and he makes every effort to make sure your at ease with your decisions and the end results. I would definitely go back!

47 Yo British Woman, 2 Grown Kids, Mommy Makeover in Dominican Republic

I read about the different surgeries and procedures, other peoples’ experiences, the good, the bad, and the ugly. My original intention was to get a tummy tuck and breast lift until I discovered the mommy makeover then my heart was set so I started to look at where I would get the work done. I live between the UK and the Caribbean and was drawn to Costa Rica because it was close to the Caribbean and two ladies I met had their surgeries there (and they looked great!) and the UK is far too expensive. I started researching surgeons and narrowed it down to three. I contacted two of them, one was slow to respond, seemed uninterested, didn’t offer a quote and just didn’t really give me a good feeling. The other, Dr. Rafael E. Estėvez H. (based in the Dominican Republic) was quick to respond, answered all my questions, gave me a quote for surgery and explained everything I needed to know. I got a good feeling about him so I did more research and found that he has done TV appearances and has an active profile on the realself site which made me more confident and comfortable at choosing him to do my work. From the outset he was available to answer my questions very quickly, unless he was in surgery then of course it would take longer but always replied. I went from the Caribbean for my first consultation and had my surgery the following day. I had the mommy makeover which included a breast lift, tummy tuck, liposuction around my front and back, Brazilian butt lift, liposuction to inner thighs and upper arms. Dr Estėvez had previously explained that I might have to have the breasts and arms done another time depending tests when I got there. As all my tests were good he was able to do it all at once which was great to hear! He was very thorough with his screening and testing, remember that your life is in his hands and he has a reputation to keep so he obviously wants to do a great job. His assistant told me that he has ‘magic hands’ that work miracles, I couldn’t wait to get out of surgery! Dr Estėvez is a wonderful surgeon and he does have ‘magic hands’ that work miracles, he worked them on me. He was kind, caring, listened to all my concerns and made me feel comfortable and confident in his care. The morning after surgery he came to check everything was ok for me to leave the hospital and gave me all of the creams and medicines needed for my 10 day stay in the DR. I went to a recovery house with 24 hour care (I can’t recommend this enough, even if you can only afford to stay for 2-3 days, I feel it’s definitely needed). Any concern day or night I could text Dr Estėvez directly which was and is still an absolute godsend. He always responds. My 2nd night out of surgery I was uncomfortable and couldn’t sleep, I needed more pain relief and ended up contacting him at 2am, he replied instantly. He is always at the end of the phone. I am now 5 weeks post op and back in the UK and he is still available to answer any questions/ concerns. I cannot recommend Dr Estėvez enough, my body is going to be amazing once the swelling has finally gone, his care and aftercare are second to none, and if you need him he’s there. Nothing has been too much trouble for him and he has always been patient and caring, I put my trust in him and am extremely happy with my results so far. My partner also had some liposuction done to chest, torso, and back and had his surgery the day after me, he is also extremely happy with his results. I have to mention that we had problems getting there which meant we were delayed by 2 days, Dr Estėvez shifted our surgery date and accommodated us without question. He really is a remarkable man and I cannot recommend him highly enough, not only that the surgery would probably cost 3 or 4 times more in the UK or the US so that’s a double bonus.

Anny, 52 Yrs Old and in Need of Tummy Tuck!! - Santo Domingo, Domincan Republic, DO

Prior to me making my decision to go with Dr. Estevez, I had contacted 4 of the most prominent Aesthetic doctors in Dom. Rep and sent them all, my medical history along with my photos. All of them just responded with prices on the procedures I wanted done. Dr. Estevez was the only doctor that responded with a concise response. He addressed my medical issues, my medicine and prior surgeries. He told me that I had to see an Endocrinologist for my thyroid problem and get clearance, need to stop certain medication prior to surgery due to problems with bleeding and discussed general anesthesia due to my back problem. He always responded to my emails and answered my phone calls. I saw interviews on Youtube of him and he captivated me with his confidence and security with which he gave his responses. He explained what I should expect and what he could do for me because of my issues. He will tell you what is realistic for you depending on your body. Bedside manners are the best and every office visit was outstanding. His secretary, Loida, is the best. Highly recommend you go and see Dr. Estevez if you want to have a good outcome. If you want before and after of me, you can email me at God bless this doctor. Ana Betancourt (Anny)

Plastic Surgery Costs Abroad.

Many patients begin their consultation questionnaire asking us: How much does that plastic surgery cost? without even giving information about them and their health. This is largely due to the constant bombardment of cosmetic surgery by the media, leading to people seeing these procedures in a cheerful and carefree manner, as if it weren't a medical act . Although the rate of complications from plastic surgery is actually much less than all other surgical specialties, this does not indicate...
