5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
Dr. Pero was really great. At my initial consultation, he was very honest about what I could realistically expect and what he recommended based on his extensive experience. He also did the photoshop himself of what I would look like after surgery- which made me feel very reassured. His scheduler, Dawn, is really great too. She is very responsive and made me feel very comfortable. I went to two other surgeons for consultations and Dr. Pero's expertise & Dawn's friendliness are the reason I chose to go with him over the others. Pre-Op, Dr. Pero met with me right before surgery and reassured me that he would make things as comfortable as possible for me. He has a great bedside manner- a good mix of smiling and extremely smart.

I recently got my nose job with Dr. Pero and I am soo glad I did it! It was a lot less painful than I imagine, in fact, I only needed pain killers for the day of the surgery and the day after. I met friends who got their nose job and were in pain killers for much longer than me, which speaks of how good surgeon Dr. Pero is. After the second day, it was only minor discomfort. Also, the before-after ended up being exactly like the photoshop before-after he gave me when I went for my first consultation! I was very impressed by it! Dr. Pero showed me in the first consultation with photoshop what my nose would look like and discussed with me choices for how curvy to make my nose. He is also very honest about what things you can expect to change and which ones you cannot change, which means you will know exactly what you are getting yourself into. Dr. Pero is extremelly patient and answered every single question I had. I also get my botox and fillers with him. I just moved to TX from CA last year, and it was difficult to try to find a new plastic surgeon I could trust, but I will definitely be going to Dr. Pero for fillers and for more surgeries as I age. I am so glad I got the nose job done! I feel so much younger! I was able to show up to work the week the surgery, and the healing process was extremely smooth. I love the new nose! Aging will be much easier with Dr. Pero nearby! =)

Dr. Pero did my rhinoplasty in December of 2010. The results were exactly what I hoped for - to look like myself, without a profile that makes me cringe! Dr. Pero is a great doctor - he's been thorough with follow ups, and I never feel as though I am being rushed out of his office (unlike most other doctors). He made me feel confident, even going into my first real surgery.
5 out of 5 stars Septoplasty
Dr. Pero performed septoplasty and turbinate reduction on me one month ago. I am already breathing through my nose better than any point in my life, and I'm in my 40's. He has great bedside manner, and he will give you as much detail about the procedure as you want. The staff is very friendly and professional. They made this about as simple as it could be to schedule. I recommend Dr. Pero...
4 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
Well, I did it. I finally did it. It is a very surreal and guilty experience that will hopefully pay off in the end. Like everyone else, I've hated my nose for a very long time and have always talked about getting it done. It was wide a boxy. I was compared to Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy) or more recently Kristen Wiig from Bridesmaids. Although both are pretty ladies, I don't aspire to look...
5 out of 5 stars Lower Face Lift
Dr. Pero and his staff are very respectful, knowledgeable, thorough and caring. I had a lower facelift (including sagging neck) and am very happy with my results. I also had Restylane around my mouth and botox around my eyes. The facility was Forest Park in Frisco and that staff was awesome as well. Would definitely recommend!!
5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

5 out of 5 stars Laser Resurfacing
Turned Back the Clock for Me! The Laser Procedure He Performed Was Virtually Painless and the Results Are AMAZING! - Plano, TX
Dr. P and his staff were extremely patient with me and explained thoroughly what I was to expect during and after the procedure. I felt so comfortable and highly recommend Dr. P. The laser resurfacing he recommended is the best thing I have done for myself... ever!
