Breast Reduction, Tummy Tuck - Albuquerque, NM

Very satisfied with breast reduction. Was told by two plastic surgeon's in town that it was one of the best reductions they have ever seen. My surgery went well. I also had a tummy tuck at the same time with great results. The office is very nice and the lady at the front desk is so sweet and friendly.

Bbl and Loving It♡ - Albuquerque, NM

So pleased with Dr. Gallegos and my results. I would highly recommend him. I find him to be kind, professional, and highly skilled. So glad I had the courage. I went to another local plastic surgeon and had a very djfferent experience. I read some of the past reviews with confusion on Dr. Gallegos. He exceeded all my expectations. I can not say enough about him and his staff.

What can I do about the swelling? Still very swollen 2 weeks post op.

Hello ladies. I'm going to have Brazilian butt lift & a tummy tuck & lipo done on my flanks, abdomen and back all at the same time. My concerns are how I'm going to position myself while sleeping as well as during the day for a min of four weeks.

11 Days Post-op - New Mexico

I was really nervous but it has been better than expected. I had a breast augmentation, full tummy tuck w/ muscle repair and lipo. Never had any real pain just really sore. It felt like a horse had rolled on me! I wasn't prepared for the fatigue and hunching over for the first 7 days. Now I'm standing straight, and feel great except for a little soreness in my back(from hunching over)...

TT, Lipo and Brizilian Butt Lift Scheduled for March 8, 2011 After a Journey. - Rio Rancho, NM

I had gastric by pass surgery in June of 2009. Before my surgery my weight was at 275lbs. I now weigh 155lbs I lost a total of 120lbs to date. I feel wonderful! For the exception of the pooch and the sagging skin. I workout 3 to 4 times a week but I have not been able to achieve the results I want. So my journey to find a PS started 4 months ago. I went for consultation in Sept 2010 I was...
