3 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Salas Doll! I love my tummy tuck Make Over!

Dr. Salas was wonderful, down to earth , informative , excellent bed manner and cares abt his work. I haven't really seen alot of my tummy but from wht I've seen in sure I will be happy. I was just really unhappy with the front office girls but once I was taken back for surgery , all the staff was wonderful. They really took care of me. Anesthesiologist was from Michigan and he was great, nurses, etc. Thy were all professional and caring. I'm happy with my choice of ps! Now, far as the management , front staff office and such...these people are so disorganized , they have the worst customer service and I would only recommend to find out if Dr. Salas works at another surgery center to go to him somewhere else . These people are unprofessional and only care about the money !!! I love Dr. Salas work and like I said the actual surgical staff...

Finally After 6 Kids I Did It and I Love It!! - Miami, FL

So I originally had another review but because it would not allow me to change the doctor I decided to go ahead and write a new one about Dr. Salas. So as I said in my first review I have six children and two surrogate children. I have wanted to get a tummy tuck for a while now but my finances would not allow me to so I just decided to wait until I can save up enough money to do so....

Breast Lift Miracle :) - Miami, FL

Dr Salas has changed my life! When I started this process I wasnt sure if it was the right decision. After I met with him, I really felt comfortable and relaxed. I know a breast lift maybe a simple procedure, but it my case was more then average. I really have nothing bad to say about Dr Salas, just look at the results!!! I'm really happy with my new breast and so is my boyfriend. Thanks again to all the women on realself for their guidance!!!!!!!
