5 out of 5 stars Inspira Breast Implants

23 Yrs Old, 255cc Silicone Submuscular, 5'5 110 Lbs - Atlanta, GA

The moment I met Dr. Castillo, I knew he would be my plastic surgeon. From the beginning, he understood my goals and knew that I wanted to achieve a very natural augmentation that would not impede my active lifestyle. Nelson and Lynne (his practice manager) made me feel completely comfortable throughout the entire process. He truly is an amazing and charismatic physician! I was very apprehensive about my breast augmentation and came into the office multiple times to have all of my questions answered. Dr. Castillo always made sure to devote a significant amount of time with me and address all of my concerns thoroughly. The surgical process went very smoothly and I have been amazed by how quickly I have recovered. I am now 5 days post-op with almost no pain or swelling. (I attribute this to Dr. Castillo's excellent surgical technique.) I absolutely LOVE my results and have no regrets! I would recommend Dr. Castillo to anyone in a heartbeat.

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Mommy Makeover After 3 Kids (Breast Augmentation, Tummy Tuck, Liposuction) Atlanta, GA

Best experience ever and the results are awesome!! I had 3 kids over 5 years and could not get back to the shape I wanted. I basically had nothing left up top and a permanent spare tire around my waist. When I met with Dr. Castillo he thoroughly and patiently explained my options (breast augmentation, tummy tuck, liposuction, etc) and what I could realistically expect from each. Both Dr....

5 out of 5 stars Labiaplasty

After Years of Discomfort, I Finally Got my Labiaplasty! Great Results! - Atlanta, GA

I cant say enough great things about Dr. Castillo. I went to my very first consultation with him and never felt the need to meet with anyone else. He has a gentle and kind demeanor, and clearly answered all my questions (believe me, I had a TON). He always answered my emails extremely promptly, and made himself available to speak on the phone whenever I had a question. He spent so much time speaking with me and making me feel comfortable, even after our appointments were over I found myself lingering in the lobby and chatting with Dr. Castillo and Lynne, his practice manager, who is sooo sweet and wonderful. I never felt pressured to hurry about a decision, which I so appreciated, and he explained thoroughly both risks and benefits of my procedure. I would absolutely trust Dr. Castillo with any cosmetic procedure, as he is an experienced, knowledgable, and talented surgeon. While it is still a bit early to see final results of my labiaplasty, I can tell already that he achieved a very natural, symmetrical look and the stitches are meticulously neat! Which is saying a lot, because I had a LOT of excess tissue removed. I cant wait to see the final result, its sure to be a life changer for both my physical comfort and self confidence. Dr. Castillo is the best!!

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Curious Newbie - Atlanta, GA

As far as Dr. Nelson goes, I'm so impressed with how he runs his practice. I had tons of questions, and he took the time to answer every single one of them. I never felt rushed. I've been to consultations before where I felt like I was an inconvenience and just another face in the crowd of existing patients. This was definitely not the case with Dr. Nelson. He's so informative and sincerely concerned about understanding your goals. I ended up getting both procedures (Juvederm in lip and botox) that day. It was the easiest process ever. I was in and out. He called me personally the next day to check in with me about how I was doing after the procedures. He sincerely cares about his patients. I would recommend him to anyone/everyone who's looking for a doctor that knows what they're doing and who is well equipped with the proper techniques to achieve your cosmetic goals.

5 out of 5 stars Nipple Surgery

24 Years Old, Young Adult, Areolar Reduction - Atlanta, GA

Dr. Castillo is one of the most caring, attentive, and professional plastic surgeons I have met. He explained in great detail all aspects of the procedure during the consultation and made sure I was well informed of the risks, recovery time, and results. During the surgery he took his time to explain each step as he performed it. Then after the procedure was completed, Dr. Castillo made it a...

5 out of 5 stars Chemical Peel

Dr. Castillo Fan Club! Atlanta, GA

Honestly, I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Castillo! His knowledge of the body and its many dimensions is unparalleled, but it is truly his compassion and investment in his patients that sets him apart from other doctors I've been to in the past. Unlike other providers who try to pack in as many patients per day as they can, Dr. Castillo takes his time examining problem areas, reviewing your records, and explaining procedural options -- without sacrificing the efficiency we all value amidst a busy day. Knowing I was somewhat hesitant to do the chemical peel, Dr. Castillo calmed my nerves, was extremely gentle, and made me feel 110% comfortable in his capable hands. After finishing my peel, Dr. Castillo allowed me to rest in his office until I felt comfortable heading back into the workday -- which was discomfort-free, I might add! In just two days, my skin sloughed off its top layer, revealing a smoother, brighter, less pockmarked version of itself. I have already scheduled my next chemical peel with Dr. Castillo and cannot wait to go back in just a few weeks! Trust me, he's the best!

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

33 Year Old Female Needing Facial Reconstruction - Atlanta, GA

I am very lucky to have found Dr. Castillo as my Plastic Surgeon!! He has by far the BEST bedside manner. When I first visted him, I had no idea what my options were and he was very thorough in his examination and made sure that I was well educated to make an informed decision for my plan of care. Both he and his staff were so friendly and you can tell the office has a "patients first" attitude and they love what they do. I have just had the BEST experince with Dr. Castillo and I will be recommending him to my friends and family if they are need of Plastic Surgery medicine.
