"About a year ago I had a tummy tuck with Dr. Salas. I am very pleased with the results.
From the start the whole experience was very professional and Dr. Salas is very knowledgeable, answering any
questions I had with no hesitation. He has excellent bedside manner and followed up with me well after the surgery.
I would, and have recommended Dr. Salas to anyone wanting to make improvements to themselves. He is the best!"
"I am so happy and satisfied with Dr Salas‘s result. He was able to understand exactly what i was looking for.
After having 2 babies, my boobs needed some attention. Dr. Salas was fast, professional and effective.
I got a great consultation where i felt very confident to do the surgery. On my surgery day, i was very nervous and scared.
Dr. Salas was able to understand and rescue the situation and calm me down. The results are amazing. I feel so much better
and prettier with my new boobs. I am planing to come back for a tummy tuck."
