4 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
My decision to have breast augmentation was to restore the loss volume in my breast after nursing two children. My decision to choose Dr. Rodiguez, from cosmeticsurg.net, was not only his board certifications and elite credentials, but the I felt that he has a high aesthetic value on a curvaceous women. My results--3 days post ops and the trust I placed with Dr. Rodriguez, are best summed...

Prior to my procedure my body was square. I had a flat butt, no hips and barely had a waist. Now, my body is voluptious. I never new I could have this body. It was worth every single dime. I am so glad I selected Dr. Rodriguez.

Dr Rodriguez and his staff were amazing. They were all so kind, informative and attentive. Having surgery is a huge decision and everyone took their time to answer all of my questions and help me to make one of the most important decisions of my life. I love the results. I wouldn't change a thing. Thank you Dr. Rodriguez.

He answered all my questions on more than one occassion. I was able to call him on his own personal cell phone multiple times after my surgery. He cares about his work, but also about the person. His staff is also very knowledgable. I had a lot of questions and never felt like I was a burden to him or his staff. His office is beautiful and you truly feel like a queen when you are there.

I has a list of question to ask, he answered before I had a chance to ask! The visit was not rushed and things were explained in detail. The entire office staff/family had my best interest at heart.

I'm very thankful to Dr. R and his staff for helping me feel better about me. I went to his office very uncertain and somewhat afraid. However, after my first visit I knew what I wanted to do and that I wanted Dr. R to do it! Dr. R and his staff were professional, attentive, warm and caring from first phone call to last post op picture. After visiting other doctors, I have no doubts that Dr. R and his staff are the tops in their field. When it's time to do something to my face, I'm going back to Dr. R!

AMAZING! 5 STAR. Dr. Rodriguez and his team are all so honest and awesome. They have answered all my millions of questions before and after my surgery so patienty and quickly, VIA: emails and phone calls. I'm in my mid 20's and I've always had subborn fat around my stomach area and my face. Even after exercising and keeping a health fit diet for years, these area would just not go away. I got lipo on my face- lower cheeks, love handles, the top and lower part of my stomach. I did a lot of research before I decided to choose the best Dr. in my area and Dr. Rodriguez is truly amazing! He explained everything to me before and made sure I was comfortable instead of rushing me and just trying to get my money. I would say the worst part was probably the 2nd and 3rd day when you feel the pain, but it was not as bad as I imagined. It's only been 3 weeks and I am so very satisified with my results. I can not wait till my final results after all the swelling and brusing completly goes away. I am now so confident when i'm naked or wearing clothes. I'm very SATISFIED. - anonymous

I found him on the internet. He has a video on Youtube describing and demonstrating the procedure that I wanted. I was impressed when speaking to him on the telephone and decided he was the right person to do the procedure for me.
