5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

A Gifted Doctor - Miami, FL

In March of 2014 I came to meet Dr. Carlos Medina at Kendall Regional Hospital. I came to see him for a consultation after a botched needle biopsy ( to determine if I had breast cancer) left me with a punctured implant. Needless to say I was devastated and very anxious & nervous about going through another breast procedure. Fortunately for me Dr. Medina was amazing! He knew exactly...

5 out of 5 stars Panniculectomy

Very impressed

I was referred to Dr. Medina from my Pain Dr. I had a pannectomy and breast augmentation. I wanted to do both at the same time, and was told by two other plastic surgeons they could be done as an outpatient. Dr. Medina advised not to do them at the same time due to my past medical history with Meningitis, the pannectomy was done as an inpatient and I was monitored very closely, we waited for...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

I had a wonderful experience.

I have a very flat tummy now. I love the result. I use every opportunity to show off my tummy. Thanks to Dr. Medina. Because of his excellent work and result, I entrusted him to treat keloids on my face. The...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Felling Very Lost - Miami, FL

To be honest, I really liked him. He did assure me my drains would be removed before an upcoming flight. That did not happen. I also have not seen him since surgery. Not sure if this is an office staff problem or his. I am currently trying to see him now, ended up in ER. They could not help me, and told me to go back to him! I'm lost as what to do!

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Excelent

My experience was amazing. From the moment i went to see him for my consultation to my post op check up. Dr Medina is very detailed and honest and gives his 100 percent to make sure you feel confident to have your procedure. He often checked up on me and everything went exactly as he mentioned. Highly recommend him. Thank you for making me feel like a new person and bringing me so much happiness.
