5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Bye, Bye Extra Tummy! - Albuquerque, NM

My Doctor has done work to my sister and best friend, he is really great with bed side manners, jokes and truly cares about doing a great job!

YAY!!! My Surgery is March 2! - Albuquerque, NM

Dr. Hopkins was the best, he has been there day or night to answer any questions we have and checked on me repeatedly. I had a special set of circumstances but he managed to give me just what I wanted. I would recommend him to my best friends. He is an awesome doctor!

5 out of 5 stars Forehead Lift

No More Wrinkles! Life is Short So I Did it - Albuquerque, NM

Several people had recommended Dr Hopkins! I spoke with people who had surgery performed by him, people who worked with him and people from Western Derm. I explained to Dr Hopkins the procedures I wanted and then he reviewed the procedures that he felt would benefit me the most. He was very honest and didn't feel I needed some of the procedures. Awesome staff...make you feel like you are the most important patient they are dealing with!!! Very profesional!!!

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Amazing Results. Had to Live With a Round Belly For Decades - Albuquerque, NM

I was referred by a friend, and my initial consultation confirmed my decision. The professionalism of the staff and the "bedside manner" of Dr. Hopkins made him a perfect fit. The staff was informative, honest and realistic. Dr. Hopkins spent all the time I wanted to spend asking questions and just talking. He was never hurried. The doctor and his staff continue to give me loving followup. If I had known what I know now, I would have done the surgery sooner!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Extremely Happy with Results - Albuquerque, NM

There are no plastic surgeons where I live so I drove 200 miles to have breast reduction done. The staff were wonderful and accommodated me at every turn with my traveling. I am so happy with the results, I wish I had done it years ago!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Highly Recommend my Dr - Had Breast Augmentation, Eyelids Done, and Tummy Tuck - Albuquerque, NM

I have had a few plastic surgery procedures and have seen several plastic surgeons both in New Mexico and New York City and I decided on Dr. Hopkins to complete my procedure. This was based on the decision that he had completed my very first procedure, breast augmentation and I LOVED the results.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Got my New Boobies - Albuquerque, NM

After breast feeding and pumping for twins for one year my boobies were sacks. Did I NEED it? no. Did I WANT it? I think so. It's been 2 weeks and my body is recovering slowly. I am 5 8' and 135lbs. I got 300cc silicone boobs and they have not dropped yet. My biggest issue is the pain I have in both my arms. It's like nerve tingling and I am praying it goes away as my body...
