Preoperative expectations were described as a small crescent breast lift procedure rather the result is a much larger incision with no explanation or communication. Recovery was not worse than expected and follow up appointments were inconsistent due to office rescheduling multiple times. The end result is average and need of a revision is disappointing.
The surgery was virtually painless, the outcome was very good and they did excellent follow-ups.
I received the procedure I was looking for.
Dr. Vela and staff are wonderful. I am super pleased with my results. Dr. Vela is an artist and made this 56 year old women look better than some 30 year olds. Thank you Dr. Vela.
I was so scared to undergo surgery having had some very bad experiences in the past. Dr. Vela and his staff made me feel so comfortable and secure in my decision to have surgery. Every step, and multiple steps there were, the team was patient, caring and sensitive to my concerns, health and safety. I had the surgery and could not be happier with the results! I finally feel free in the body I was meant to have. I only wish that I had done this sooner.
Dr. Vela has a great demeanor and it helped me stay calm throughout the process. The whole team was always friendly and professional. And most importantly, results were perfect. No regrets, and highly recommend!
Everyone was amazing. Very informative about procedure and all steps before and after.
Thr procedure was fully explained to me in detail. The staff was friendly, informative, and a pleasure to work with. I felt safe and Dr. Vela did exactly what he said he would. Dr. Vela and the staff were the best.
The aide who removed the stitches; whose name I can'trecall, missed some and I had to return. Julia removed the balance and cleaned the surgical area and did a superior job.
Dr. Vela was thorough with his information and in what I should and should not expect from my procedure. He was highly professional. My results exceeding my expectations.
Dr. Vela reassured me several times that my surgery is going to be a simple one and it was. He would meet with me for more than the usual 10 minutes the doctors office and meet with patients. He also showed care and consideration for my time and my questions. This makes Dr. Vela a doctor that goes above and beyond
Dr. Vela is very caring and thorough in his explanations. Great bedside manners and delivered great results. [Single best thing is...] The aesthetic outcome. My midsection looks great and I have amazing functionality of my core after the diastasis recti repair.
Dr. Vela and his staff made sure that my husband and I understood post-op care and that I was absolutely comfortable before and after surgery. At home and during post-op recovery they were quick to answer any questions or concerns I had. At appointments Dr. Vela takes the time to make sure all questions are answered and any concerns and expectations are addressed. He really makes you feel like you are top priority.
Dr. Vela is the best, his staff are wonderful very professional. At no time was I uncomfortable.
The incision hasn't healed and it's been almost been three weeks. It seems a long time to still be seeping.
Dr. Vela made me feel very comfortable. He had knowledge in all the medical procedures and made it clear on what he thinks would be best for my body. Every appointment I have had he has been super great. I am extremely happy with Dr. Vela and my outcome! [Single best thing is...] Dr. Vela was excellent in explaining everything and my outcome thus far is what I wanted.
Dr. Vela was extremely comforting and reassuring throughout the process. He made sure I understood what to expect after the surgery so that I would be more prepared. I am extremely satisfied with the results after my surgery.
Was amazed at how quickly I was able to have lesion removed
After meeting with 5 other surgeons, I instantly fell in love with Dr. Vela. He took his time to understand my goals and my weight loss journey. He truly cares about his patients and takes pride in his work. Sarah has been amazing through post op communication and care. I could go on and on about how wonderful they both are. I highly recommend Dr. Vela.
Dr. Vela carefully explained options for follow up procedures.
