So Worth It and Very Tolerable Surgery. Harlingen, TX

I feel comfortable around Dr. Ghafoori she is very blunt and some people, as I have read in other comments say she's "rude" but I see that as a plus. I like people that give it to me straight, lol... The only thing that I didn't agree with was that I wanted Vicodin and muscle relaxers as I have read it is standard for many PS. The muscle relaxers help for muscle spasms. She told me no that I didn't need them. Oh, well if i real y antes i coludidos have goteen them in México. That's the great thing about leaving so close to the border. You don't need prescription to get what you want. It's all good. With that being said I think she did a GREAT JOB! I totally recommend her. Thanks Dr. Ghafoori!

Fantastic Results - Southlake, TX

I decided to do Coolsculpting after doing some research and consulting with a cosmetic surgeon. I just needed some of my stubborn fat eliminated. I chose to have it done at Sante Aesthetics and Wellness after reading their reviews and hearing their add on the radio. I am really glad I chose Sante. Their staff were very nice and knowledgeable. There is some discomfort with the procedure but...

Much Needed Improvement - Harlingen, TX

Instructions and literature on the procedure were provided to me. Every question was answered to my satisfaction. I knew what to expect with each visit, before and after the surgery. Dr. Ghafoori was available to me at all times which made me feel much more comfortable should a complication arise (but none did). Post-op instructions were thorough, easy to understand and follow. I was treated with respect at all times.

Bbl, Arm and Back Lipo, 39 Yr Old. Harlingen, TX

I have full faith in Dr. Ghafoori. She is amazing and never beats about the bush. She is straightforward and honest and will give you nothing but her very best. 5 yrs ago I went to her for a tummy tuck and breast augmentation and the results were so great I went back to her for round 2! I tell all my close friends about how great she is and I highly recommend her! She has her own surgery facility which was a huge plus! Dr. Ghafoori is an amazing cosmetic surgeon...she's a perfectionist and that's just perfect for me! The post op visits are great. She makes sure you are ok and explains your progress carefully and to the "t". And what I also loved is that I was provided her cell phone number in case I had questions after the surgery. Which I did and she got back to me right away. 5 stars for Dr. Ghafoori!!!
