After 20+ Years of Hating my Nose, I Finally Had It Fixed! Couldn't Be Happier. San Antonio, TX

I had a very deviated septum along with other internal nasal issues and a nose that just didn't fit my petite face and frame. Dr. Lopez gave me his honest opinion on what he saw and it matched perfectly to what I saw every time I looked in the mirror....a masculine elongated nose that just did fit me. Over the years, everyone I was closed to and with whom I spoke candidly about hating my nose...

Happy With My Visit - Live Oak, TX

I came to Dr. Lopez after a recommendation from my Dermatologist Dr. Cragun who worked with him in the past. I suffered from pseudo fallicalitus barbe, complicated by keloid scar tissue and chronic infections with discharge. I had be treated by numerous doctors over the last 38 years, but my experience with Dr. Lopez has given me the best results by far. His staff is sharp and personnable and always greet me with a smile. I have spent half of my working life in different areas of healthcare and feel fortunate to be under Dr. Lopez care.

I have already told others about...

Dr. Lopez Supurb Artist Surgeon - Leon Valley, TX

Dr. Lopez is a true artist. The cuts he made on me are not noticable and the small little lines are not seen because they are hidden inside the hair not on the skin that shows if hair is pulled up. It has only been 4 weeks since my surgery and in the first week I realized this was an excellent job. I fell during the night a couple of nights after surgery and the Nurse asked me to come into the...
