5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
Dr. Picard-Ami was very attentive and patient with me. I was set mentally on the surgery, but had some fears. He cleared up all of my doubts and saw me 3 times before my surgery because I was so indecisive about the size. He never rushed me and he was very professional in his opinion regarding the kind of size was suitable for me and what I wanted to achieve. The surgery went great, with no complications. The recovery process was not so bad either and his staff helped me along the way (he has the nurse from his office come to your home the next day after surgery as part of the fees you pay -- she helps you shower for the first time and get dressed, which is a great service). In all my follow-up visits, Dr. Picard-Ami was always attentive to all of my questions. I feel so happy with the end result and would highly recommend Dr. Picard-Ami to anyone. Important to note that he speaks English perfectly as he trained for many years in Canada and practiced medicine in the US. A very professional experience here in Panama.

I really like how professional and friendly my doctor is. His staff is amazing (especially Nitza and the nurse Lily yesterday). He has been awesome about spending time with me and answering my questions. I was so nervous the first visit and he was very calm in dealing with me. Wait times have been on longer side compared to US, but that is always the case in Panama so it is one of those things you come to expect + get used to here. I researched Dr.Picard-Ami in-depth and I was very impressed by his credentials before going in to meet with him. It is very scary looking for a surgeon outside of your comfort zone + when you do not speak the native language of the country well. Not only was Dr.Picard-Ami impressive on paper, he truly cares about his patients, the final outcome + he is an impressive surgeon. He was so wonderful during all the pre + post op meetings so far and I would certainly recommend him to anyone I know based on my personal experience with him here in Panama. I am so thrilled with my results so far!

I am so happy I found Dr. Picard-Ami. He did my face-lift, a neck lift, my eyelids, a tummy tuck, and a little sculpting lipo for my sides. I look great and feel great. I highly recommend him. Please feel free to ask me any questions. My results as well as the results of my friends are fabulous! He has taken 15 years off. I look as good as I feel. Dr. Picard-Ami is the best plastic...

I am very surprised about the comments made by a patient who is obviously very upset with Dr Crespo and Dr Picard-Ami and how she bashes them and my country. Panama is among the best qualified and chosen countries for people to retire. It is one of the best medical destinies for care in most medical specialties because of the high level of training of its doctors and the excellent quality of...
I've always had small breasts - didn't fill out an A cup and always wore padded bras. I didn't realize it was possible for breasts to sag if you don't really have breasts to begin with. Turns out it is possible. They went from small but kinda cute to minuscule and shriveled up after nursing my four healthy babies for a year each. They look horrific. My wonderful husband loves me no matter...
1 out of 5 stars Facelift
I was supposed to see Dr. Crespo based on the great results of a facelift that he did for a friend of mine and inquired about him on the website that he shares with Dr. Picard-Ami. Dr. Picard-Ami responded and told me to come for the consultation in Panama City and then they would decide which surgeon would see me. I did that and was very specific in emails before arrival that I was seeking...

Very happy I choose Dr. Luis Picard for my surgery in Panama . He fully understood what I was looking for - size , shape and results for my breast implants change with lift combination. I had ZERO POST-op pain - this was a surprising element as I was able to return to work in 2 days. Dr. Picard is very profesional , to the point - just the way I like it. Both of his assistants also done a...
