5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift

Perfect Breast Lift - Houston, TX

I finally decided to get my breast lift after nursing my third child. I was just not happy with the way I looked and felt self conscience when I wore any shirt that was form fitting. I was pretty nervous about the whole cosmetic surgery idea because I've never had any work done but all of those nerves had been replaced with butterflies of excitement after meeting with Dr. L. All of my questions (my little - OK long list of questions) were answered in a detailed manner he was not annoyed at all. His calm and caring demeanor reassured me that I could have not chosen a more compassionate surgeon. My surgery was a success, my breasts are firm and lifted and look incredible. I am now looking forward to swimsuit season!

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

16wks Tomorrow...doing great!

I found Dr. Lapuerta through a advertisement ad in a magazine, and upon my initial visit selected him based on his credentials, being Triple Board Certified, and Patient ratings/reviews. I feel strongly confident in him performing my procedure and look forward to a great outcome

5 out of 5 stars Tumescent Liposuction

Finally Did It! Lipo/Contouring of the Full Abs, Back, Inner Thighs - Pearland, Texas

Dr. L was extremely nice and professional many times he would explain and apologize before I felt anything. He made sure I knew what was going on before, while and during the proces ... well while I was awake. :-) Any and everytime I called or emailed I received responses the same day and sometimes within the hour. The payment process was more embarassing for me than them. They offered and explained all kinds of options however, I was only approved for so much therefore, I had to split my payment on to several cards. At no time did they complain or tease me. Actually, they made me feel even more comfortable my jokingly saying 'one lady used 10 credit cards!' And waiting, I walked right in and got started right away. Maybe because I was first but either way I never set down until in the doctors chair chatting with my OR nurse.

5 out of 5 stars Chin Liposuction

Chin Lift with Excellent Customer Service - Houston, TX

I always hated my double chin, in my pictures I could tell it aged me. There was nothing I could do to take care of it besides surgery. I knew there was no special diet or excercise that could make me loose inches of lift it. Dr. Lapuerta and his staff are wonderful at what they do, he is experienced and pleasant to visit with as welll. I wouldn't change a thing!

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Excellent Experience, from the Consult to the Post-op Visit - Houston, TX

First off let me say I researched doctor's in the Conroe and Houston Area. Dr. Lapuerta came highly recommended among my husbands coworkers. I was met with a smile from all staff on the day of my consult. The doctor and his staff are very thorough, there was not a question that went unanswered. Amazing experience I recommend Dr. Lapuerta to everyone that compliments my new look.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Do Your Research - Houston, TX

Triple Board Certified, not a lot of PS are. He was very professional answered ALL my questions and his staff is amazing. I was shocked at how thorough my pre-op appt was, the nurse went through all side effects/complictions with me and Dr L came by and sat and talked with me as well. I had breast aug done in March, and I get nothing but compliments on how natural I look!
