5 out of 5 stars Facelift
Jowls, fallen cheeks and loose neck skin on my 64 year-old face led me to Dr. Centeno. I consulted two other surgeons first, but felt most comfortable and secure with Dr. Centeno's unique combination of professionalism, education and training at a world-renowned plastic surgery center. My feelings were justified, as my face looks wonderful. Dr. Centeno performed a combination procedure that he...
5 out of 5 stars Butt Lift
Dr. Centeno is who you want to go to if you've ever been overweight and/or have lost a bunch of weight as did I. He truly understands body contouring, especially after weight loss. Prior to my autologous flap buttock augmentation, breast lift, liposuction, and scar revision with Dr. Centeno I had a tummy tuck and gynecomastia through another Dr successfully...switching Dr was a very big risk for me, but Dr C quickly made me feel comfortable and was easy to trust. He is simply an artist of the body and I was super pleased with my results. One of the nicest, easy-going plastic surgeons out there.
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
Dr. Centeno is absolutely wonderful! During the initial consultation, he explained the entire procedure and what to expect following. I found him to be very professional but also very personable and comforting (GREAT bed side manner). The staff at Bitar are also very accommodating. I've had a few personal hiccups during recovery and Dr. Centeno and his staff were able to address all of my concerns almost immediately.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift
I chose Dr. Centeno because I saw some of his work and had spoke to some of his patiences about their experience. I had a great experience with Dr. Centeno. I was very nervous about the procedure and he helped to relax me and set my mind at ease. He was very informative about the procedure so that I would know what exactly he was going to do. The after care was amazing. The doctor and his staff were very attentive and caring. Since the surgery I have started to go to him for fillers. I refer anyone interested in plastic surgery or fillers to him. I wouldn't trust anyone else.
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You! I just wanted to say how great my experience with Dr. Centeno was. The office experience was also fantastic. He is a very talented surgeon with a warm heart !

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery
I heard about Dr. Centeno from my sister-in-law. I am so pleased with my results! I totally trust Dr. Centeno and wouldn't put my self in the hands of any other Dr. I'm so happy I heard about Dr. Centeno. He addressed my issues, eased my concerns so I went into surgery feeling at ease. I refer my family and friends to him.
5 out of 5 stars Nipple Surgery
DR Centeno works out of Bitar cosmetic surgery institute. I must say, I really lucked out. Not only was the staff super friendly and kind, he himself was a gem. His work was perfect and had great bed side manners to go along with his keen eye in creating symmetry and scarless work. Bitar is super clean and is equipped with a staff that can make anyone feel as if there family the moment one walks through the doors. When the procedure was over, Dr Centeno answered all of my questions and concerns and I was on my way. (Note to all: This procedure was at least 60% more expensive then in NY and NJ. I advise no one to get it in the tri state area)
5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
