“I can’t express enough the gratitude I have for the wonderful job you performed during my cosmetic surgery. My experience from my first consultation to my recovery has been a beautiful one; I feel differently about my body now and feel a little younger as well! I had reservations about having surgery after doing some research and speaking with women who have had the surgery done. I heard there may be bruising, pain and swelling. Some of the symptoms may be intense. However I can honestly tell you that I had NO bruising, LITTLE pain and swelling, I am absolutely pleased with the results and do not have any regrets whatsoever. (I wish I had the surgery a long time ago!) I don’t want to go without mentioning how gracious and wonderful your staff was during preparation and after. I would encourage anyone who would like to do a little something to make them feel better about themselves to do so . However they should go through the experience with you and your staff!
Thank you for being who you are!”

And may you be richly blessed always with Love Through Christ.”

Actually, I am so excited about the NEW me that I find myself bragging about my surgery to anyone who will listen. However, I have drawn the line at ‘showing’ the new me off.

“Dr. Barrera performed an otoplasty and lip lift. Most surgeons only do these procedures under general anesthesia. My surgery was done completely under local anesthesia. For me, it was easier than going to the dentist. I felt great afterwards – no nausea, pain or grogginess that comes with general anesthesia. I felt like I could have driven myself home. That night, Dr. Barrera, not his staff, called to check on me.”
“I can tell how important it is to Dr. Barrera that his patients are happy. He seems to treat patients like family members. He is very conscientious, honest and kind. As a nurse and patient, I have no hesitation in recommending Dr. Barrera.”
A Happy Patient
