“Beauty is a letter of recommendation that

“After my 3 pregnancies my body looked horrible. I had stretch marks everywhere on my abdomen along with a horrible scar. I was desperate when I got to Doctor Medina, and she guided me to the right procedure for me. I am very happy with the results! I feel beautiful again, and I can go shopping without getting depressed and all thanks to Doctor Medina. I’ve already referred two friends and my sisters to her, and they have all been equally or more happy than I am. I would refer anyone who wants plastic surgery to Doctor Medina because she is consistent.”Laidy
“I visited several different surgeons, and when I got to Doctor Medina, I realized that she would be more than my doctor, she would be my friend. I’m happy because in addition to getting the body I always wanted, I also regained a part of my inner self.”María Cristina
“Hi, I’m Claudia Ivelisse, I went to see Doctor Medina with the intention of having a breast lift. After my pregnancies, my breasts were practically on the ground. I had visited several plastic surgeons and tests had shown that I had anemia but I was interested in surgery nonetheless. Doctor Medina caught my attention because she explained the surgery and all the benefits and risks, and she was also the only one who asked me about my health. She even refused to perform surgery at one time because of my anemia. I got treatment and was evaluated by other specialists, just waiting until I could make my dream come true. Then I realized she was a special kind of plastic surgeon and was looking after me and my best interests. Today I’m happy and if I needed something more I would return to Doctor Medina in a second.”Claudia
“From a young age I was very self-conscious about the immense size of my breasts. I was teased by many people, plus I had intense pain in my back. I could never find the right clothes to fit me. Dr. Tania Medina changed my life, and I reestablished my confidence. I am very grateful to her.”Esmerlin
