Are you a patient of Robert Caridi, MD?
Weighed around 260 starting high school... Got down to 160 ish my Junior year. Currently I'm at 185 and 23 y/o, and also a lot more comfortable with my body. Everything but my chest though. Very excited to be getting past this finally, and so far I'm feeling confident in my choice of Doctor. Only time will tell, as far as results. But thanks for reading, and wish me luck! Everything went...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
If I lived anywhere in the world and I needed plastic surgery- I would pay whatever it took to get to Austin to see Dr. Caridi. He is a sculptor who's medium is the human body. His results are stunning. His care, professionalism, kindness and generosity with his time are only superseded by his gifts for making the physical body beautiful. His focus on safety made me feel completely secure. The experience was amazing and my transformation profound.
Ever since I was 15 I realized that I was going to be "underdeveloped" in my chest. Having a naturally athletic, petite build didn't really help my desired feminine figure either. I graduated, then went to college, paid for it myself, so none of my money was going to breasts. After graduation, I was immediately hired and worked full time for VERY little in Austin, so, again, NO MONEY was...

This is the father of surgical fixation of male gynecomastia. Please do not waste time and your health with anybody else. This man is a genius and an artist. Everything was first rate from the start to the finish. I am blessed to be one of his patients!!! NO surgical drains and amazing results Post Op day 1!!!
I've never been more excited. Like many on this forum, I had implants done too young (21 years old) because of my lack of self-esteem. I had NO boobs, none whatsoever, and just wanted to feel more feminine, more proportionate. I can honestly say that I've hated them since the first year I had them. I didn't go too big, just enough to fill out a C cup, but as years went by, I became more...
Dr. Caridi is amazing! He is very blunt about his expectations and genuinely wants you to look and feel good. His liposuction on my arms is very smooth no bumps at all, no one ever knows I had it. I trust his work so much I sent my mother there for her mommy makeover.

32 Yrs. Old, with 4 Kids and Breast Fed 3 for 7 Mo. Each Kid, Lost All Volume So Decided on BA - Austin, TX
I honestly went there intimidated before I met my Dr. or his staff. Theven staff was truly friendly and easy going and made me feel very comfortable (I am the nerves type outside of my box). I was also very comfortable having Dr. Caridi fill me in on all the helpful information and he has great bedside manners as well. He deserves a 5!
34Yrs Old, 5'10 139Lbs, 3 Breastfed Kids, Revision/Lift to Replace 700cc Saline Unders w/ Silicone HP Implants. Austin, TX
My first BA was in 2005. I had breastfed my first child for 18 months and lost several cup sizes after weaning. I had 700cc saline unders placed, which were fine at the time the surgery was performed, but looked ridiculous after two additional pregnancies/breastfeeding. I was never 100% satisfied with my newly acquired breasts. I measured 36F, which made bra/swimwear shopping near...
5 out of 5 stars Sientra Breast Implants
Let me start off by stating his office staff, and I mean EVERY single person I came into contact with was genuine, professional, friendly, and went over and above to make me feel comfortable and answer any and all questions. Dr. Caridi himself came highly recommended from a personal friend who had a few procedures done a year ago. Dr. Caridi was charismatic, professional, friendly, beyond knowledgeable, listened to my wants and helped me make the best decision for my breast augmentation. If you don't know a lot about his past he is board certified and gets the top pick of implants from Sientra. They only sell to board certified surgeons. He is very honest and real with his explanation of results. If you want great results, the patient must put in the "homework" and be dedicated to maintaining. This is an investment and you should listen to your surgeon - he knows best! His surgery center in his office is state of the art and impeccably clean and very inviting. Again, his staff is amazing. They all made me feel so at ease and are some of the nicest people I have ever had the privilege to work with. Post surgery pain was so very minimal. I was surprised at how gentle and careful he must have been b/c there was no bleeding and mainly just sore. I am beyond happy with my results and wish I had done this years ago. If you are looking for a surgeon full of talent, integrity, and overall knowledge.... Dr. Caridi is you surgeon look no further. He is a true artist. Thank you so very much Dr. Caridi and your whole office staff for making my experience incredible.

How do you know if you suffer from “filler burnout?” Filler burnout is when the tremendously popular fillers, such as Restylane and Juvederm, aren’t doing it for you anymore. Don’t get me wrong, I can help patients postpone cosmetic surgery by “lifting” the contours of the face with Botox and wrinkle fillers. But inevitably, time marches on; and there comes a time when you are beyond fillers. This is a phenomenon that happens as our age really seems to be catching up with us....
