5 out of 5 stars Body Lift

The outcome was excellent, and the personal care was superb.

Dr. Ortega performed a belt lipectomy, for me, on May 31, 2017. The procedure was performed, as the second part of a skin removal procedure, following significant weight loss, several years prior. The outcome of the procedure gave my hips a natural contour, along with the boost in confidence that comes with a body that is naturally streamlined. Dr. Ortega offered me support, education on the...

35 Yo, TT+Lipo+Muscle Repair+Monsplasty, Bye Bye Pooch! - Florida, FL

I have both dreamed and joked of doing this one day... After finally working off much of my excess weight, I'm left with my curves but a hanging pooch. :( Doesn't matter how thin and lean I get, that hanging hammock doesn't go away and I feel like it runs everything I've worked for. I had a consult a year ago just to see if this procedure would ever even be feasible for me. I'm doing a Tummy...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Amazing results

I had an excellent experience with Dr Ortega, her staff and the surgery center. My tummy tuck has exceeded my expectations. I have a beautiful new belly button and a nice, flat tummy. I recommend Exparel to anyone having this procedure. I did not need my narcotic pain medicine, although I did take the prescription ibuprofen. Everyone l interacted with was professional, courteous and caring....

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Exceptional Surgeon

So thrilled I found Dr. Amy Ortega. I've searched for years for the right doctor and I can truly say I made the right decision to have Dr. Amy Ortega as my surgeon for my first BA. Dr. Ortega and her staff are absolutely phenomenal. They are all so friendly, attentive, caring. From the first consultation through all of my post-op appointments, they genuinely cared about my well-being and...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

Nothing but the best!

Dr. Ortega and her staff are too good to be true. My entire experience went just as she described, no surprises, no complications, and an outcome that exceeded my expectations. I had a breast lift and replaced my implants for a smaller size. I look and feel so much better. No more neck and pain.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift

Best experience ever!

I chose Dr Amy Ortega to do my belt lipectomy, breast lift and various areas of liposuction. We were new to the area and imagine my surprise when I found Dr. Ortega did her undergrad at Texas A&M, from which I had just retired. I had my surgery a week ago and have had no pain, only discomfort, which has been manageable. One week post op and I already look amazing! I am so proud of the way...

5 out of 5 stars Butt Implants

Great experience- butt implant removal

I am very happy to have chosen Dr. Ortega to do my buttock implants removal. They were 7 years old and one of them was broken. She was very honest with me and gave me realistic expectations. I felt well taken care of by her entire staff, always checking up on me, even the night after surgery, she called me to ask how I was doing. She is a great professional. Thanks Dr. Ortega.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Fabulous Doctor, Fabulous Results!!

Dr Ortega is an extremely experienced, professional doctor. She is caring and took the time to listen to my concerns and addressed each one. The results of my abdominoplasty/liposuction are spectacular!!! Beyond what I expected. Would highly recommend her. She is a gifted, compassionate surgeon.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Best surgeon/office in the Melbourne area!

Dr Ortega and her staff are exceptional - very friendly and attentive. From the first meeting/consultation through to all of my post-op appointments, they genuinely cared about my satisfaction and comfort. I could have gone to a surgeon closer to home but because of Dr. Ortega's reputation and reviews, I opted to use her, even being an hour away. If I ever need additional procedures, I...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Amazing Doctor!

I had the best experience with my breast reduction back in September '16. I absolutely love Dr. Ortega and her team! They are like a new family! She and her team were there for me every step of the way, even during my emergency surgery! They took incredible care of me and not once was I worried. She was the absolute best surgeon i've ever had the pleasure of meeting.
