She is the BEST
I cannot say enough about my experience with Dr. Elena Vega at New Look New Life. Though I had been researching doctors for over a year to find the perfect surgeon to perform a post weightloss tummy tuck on me I realized I was looking for amazing reviews, hospital affiliations, and everything else I was "told" was all that mattered. (While all those factors are important so is the artistry of the surgeon and Dr Vega is a master of her art) I had spent over $1500 in consultations and really was feeling defeated. I had worked so hard to lose 100 lbs but still struggled with excess skin similar to having had a baby or 4 lol. I walked into the office greeted by Braulio, Dr. Vega's office coordinator. He was kind, informative, but not pushy like every where else I had been. I met with Dr Vega and explained to her what I wanted to accomplish, literally on the verge of tears as if anyone else has experienced something like this, they would understand the intensity of emotion attached to it. She saw the sadness in my eyes but gave me hope that she could help me. She gave me options, some more invasive than others, she gave me hope but no false promises. I didn't feel like I was being "sold." Being in sales for the last 15 years that's hard to do. I decided that abdominoplasty and Liposuction of my upper, lower back and flanks was the way to go for me. Once I decided to move forward with Dr. Vega, her and partner Dr. Karlinsky helped to make my family comfortable with my decision going above and beyond, as this can be just as scary for your family. The cost was reasonable and fair. There were no hidden fees. The procedure was done at a surgical center vs a hospital (waaaaaay more sanitary and though it was a concern of mine- I am SO happy that is what I decided) They were upfront about the pain level I would experience and very thorough on the after care procedure. If anything, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. That probably has to do with the fact that the results exceeded my expectations, they have checked on me consistently ever since, and I am excited to see what else I can do now...it's addicting :). My scar is healing so beautifully and I think by continuing to use scar cream it will be nearly invisible. I thank Dr. Vega and of course Dr. Karlinsky, Braulio, Janette, Susan, Dr. Judson for helping me to finally for once like the person I saw in the mirror-not having to hide behind anything. So I recommend Dr. Vega without any hesitation to ANYONE who has something, anything holding them back from loving the way they look. I am confident she will change your life as she did mine. Many many thanks to New Look, New Life.
