34 yr old mother of 2 boys, very active worked out daliy. My long story,I live in a small town in Texas . Where we don't have many options , not very many plastic surgeons . I decided to go and consult Dr A was way over my budget , Dr B seam very experienced very nice person but still over my budget. I wanted to get a breast lift and breast augmentation also a tummy tuck. Dr B talked me in of how good he was how happy I'd be if I went with him surgery would be done under local anesthia in he's office so what did I do , yes I went with him. I gave him my payment to go ahead with the breast aug, and little donut lift. My sister wanted to get a mommy makeover too. We had the option of looking for a Dr. In Dallas Tx. After reading so many good comments about Dr. Armijo we decided to travel and consult him . Which was 2 days before I was scheduled for my boob job. We went to see him he seam like a very nice caring Dr. I was honest i told him I was scheduled in 2 days for my surgery. That I was interested in having my tummy tuck with him later in the year since I was already paid Dr in my town I would go ahead with the surgery. He said it be better to just have 1 surgery instead of 2 and that I could always cancel my surgery. I only had 2 days to think what I wanted to do. Dr in my town seam very experience had he's diffrent way of doing the breast aug soposably better, he called a full under the muscle. He would tell me no one did his way , the way he talked he made it sound really good . So yes I decided to go ahead with my sergery even though I was just quoted $8,000 with Dr. Armijo for all my mommy make over. Tummy tuck and breast aug, he said I could get away with breast lift. Dr I went with charged me $5000 for breast aug. and donut lift. So I got my boobs done in my town, I should of never done that. Never happy with my results, went trough a very though healing very painfull. Went through a very bad depression where time would go by never happy.
My last appointment After surgery was 3 months later worst experience I could have. Dr was completely a different person didn't seam to care any more he said that was it last vist . When he had grantees his job, they never dropped way up high. The only thing he could do is give me a full lift. He was so bad I would never go back to him again for a full lift. I remember telling him I understand that things could go wrong just be honest with me. I told him they don't have to be prefect I don't live off of my boobs but I'm not able to even ware a bra any more . Just didn't look or felt right, still in pain . He would tell me i don't know I've never gotten my boobs done, I would still respect him and think to my self but you've done them for so long. I would never go back , I never want to see his face again. I decided to go see Dr Armijo, even though I felt so bad after not choosing him from the beginning. I got there to his office with shame and nervous after my really bad experience I had previously had. As soon as I came in his office his staff was very friendly very welcoming feeling.
When I talked to Dr. Armijo he told me what could be done that everything was going to be ok and that it could be fixed. He was very professional very respectful about my past decicion. Never comment any thing bad about the errors the other Dr had mad,I could just see it in his eyes that things were really wrong. So I trusted him I believed in him just by how he reacted. I had my revision done 5 months later and my tummy tuck with MR and no lipo. Completely a different experience , I felt very save in good hands. Not very many pain nothing like the first time. As soon as I recover in the hospital I felt a big difference in my chest a big relieve I felt my boobs are really mine now. Very beautiful from day one. Very happy from my results my tummy tuck couldn't ask for more. No pain at all just slept through 3 days straight after surgery woke up one day like nothing walking really fast already . Drains no problem had them in for one week, went back to Dallas to get them removed travel 5 hrs and came back home that same day . Feeling great very thankful with him he even gets excited when sees your results. I'm 4 weeks post op.
Returning to normal little by little. Almost no swilling, all ready working on some cardio. Never thought it be this easy , I think the Dr matters so much in your recovery . From my experience I saw a really big difference from the 2 doctors experience some times does not matter. I could not ask for a better dr.
