Iâve had quite a journey to find relief from sinusitis and Dr. Ayala has been superb. A bit of history, being nervous about the possibility of balloon sinuplasty I did much research, in fact I attained 4 physician opinions, so my decision to go with Dr. Ayala was thought out. Now, I will say I donât believe he does many balloons and that was probably the only downside (if any) that I could find in making my decision to go with him, but I figured since he does plastic surgery and I could only imagine the high degree of precision it takes to do that surgery that a balloon would be a walk in the park. The office is clean from floor tiles to ceiling tiles. The staff is great and Dr. Ayala is a class act. So it been awhile since my surgery and Iâve figure enough time has passed to comment about care both pre- and post-op. The surgery went very smooth and I felt comfortable in Dr. Ayalaâs care. Dr. Ayala controlled the situation (surgery) from making sure staff was in the right place doing the right thing as well as keeping me in line. Iâm not sure of the latest technology in the field but I felt like the equipment used was state of the art. The actual surgery took I think 15 mins, I feel, I donât really know. The wait time before the surgery took a while, maybe 3 â 4 hours I donât remember, but that did not bother me as I felt it gave more time for the anesthesia to kick in. After surgery they stuffed my nose with a gel-like substance that I was to leave alone as it would go away on its own and for home meds they gave me pain medication as well as nasal spray, nasal gel, something in case my nose was bleeding (that I can remember). The day after surgery was probably the roughest because I had to keep my head tilted back but only for that reason. Day 2 after surgery, no news. Day 3 after surgery I had a slight headache not sure if the headache was related to the surgery or not but it was not bad. Day 4 it was back to work. Through post recovery, I did not have to use any pain medication and my nose didnât bleed â I did use the nasal gel and spray for comfort. Since recovery, I do not have any complaints of a âdry noseâ leading me to use nasal spray, loss of smell, or loss of tasteâ¦ Iâve heard may horror stories of post recovery and long term effects, and I feel blessed that I didnât have any problems and Iâm feeling great. Iâve been so pleased that since the surgery theyâve helped me with my sinuses â which are also feeling great! Theyâre also working to help my ears. Yes, I would, and have, recommend Dr. Ayala to friends and family. For those on the fence, I would recommend taking care of yourself. Quality of life is priceless.
I had a very positive experience with Dr. Ayala getting botox for TMJ. He showed he cared about my problem and took the time to speak to me about possible solutions, specialists in the area, and future outlook with surgery and without. I didn't feel rushed into decisions. I loved my experience because not many surgeons are as humble and concerned about their patients.
Dr. Ayala thank you for taking care of my son's allergies. You are the BEST DOCTOR in the world. I'm Excited to say this DR. has a lot of time in his hands to explain every detail concerning my sons health. Awesome staff, great environment and thank you Sandra for all your help. Cant wait to set up my appointment soon. Thank you Dr. Ayala your the best.
As soon as you walk into Dr.Ayala's office you see so many recognitions of him it makes you feel like you can trust him! He was very caring, compassionate and listened to me. I tried dysport injections and I saw a difference within hours of the treatment. I will definitely go back to his office! I totally recommend him!
Dr. Ayala is an excellent doctor. He is very compassionate and professional very experienced and his credentials are amazing. Dr. Ayala takes the time to talk to you and listens to you. I highly recommend Dr. Ayala, When I left his office I felt so worry free, I know i'm in good hands. Thank you very much Dr. Ayala and staff.
Dr. Ayala did balloon sinusplasty for me and I feel much better. I have had a continual sinus infection for several years and it is now cleared up. Dr. Ayala has done more for me than anyone else I have gone to. I would definitely recommend everyone to his office.
My child had a facial twitch and eye squinting since he was 3 years old (He is now 6). I took him to his eye Dr. he saw specialists was given all sorts of meds. and no one could figure out the reason why he was doing it. I thought he had vision problems. His primary Dr. Referred us to Dr. Ayala and on top of that he is such a nice peron, he explained everything in perfect detail, had GREAT bedside manner and he figured it out on our first visit he said he noticed several things he spoke with my son and asked him all kinds of questions.... he ordered tests and gave my son medications. My son is doing ALOT better than before and he will soon start his treatment. Thank you so much Dr. Ayala!!!
I suffered with severe nasal polyps for over ten years that that prevented me from having a normal life in family and work. I had to adjust my breathing due to my constant congestion and clogged nasal cavities. I had to rely on breathing through my mouth which had a significant impact on how I spoke, ate and interacted with others. But, thank God my family doctor referred to Dr. Carlos Ayala in McAllen, TX. He and his staff did a fantastic job in diagnosing my health problem and in providing the procedure that pulled me out of my severe condition. His patience and care in listening to what I had to say and his meticulous approach to resolving my health issues gave me complete confidence and trust that I was finally at the right place with the right doctor. I thank God for this beautiful nose and its purpose and I sincerely thank Dr. Ayala, his staff, as well as the nurses and doctors who assisted him during the procedure for my nasal polyp removal. I thank the Renaissance Hospital for its service. I highly recommend Dr. Ayala to anyone who suffers from allergies and their effect on the nasal cavities and a normal life free of nasal congestion, constant coughing, abnormal breathing, phlegm, nasal drip, impaired speech and their impact on one's personality. Dr. Ayala is currently treating me for my allergies. I know one thing. By the grace of God, Dr. Ayala has helped me to regain my self-confidence.
I've always had this double chin my whole life! I was very uncomfortable with it, and was waiting for a procedure that was non-surgical. Dr. Ayala made me feel really comfortable, explained exactly what the procedure was, and what would happen after. I swelled up quite a bit after the injections, but the swelling goes down a bit by the next day. The procedure took about 10 minutes and all I felt was the burning of the medicine. I didn't feel the needle. I would totally recommend Kybella to a friend!
For years I have wanted my nose done for breathing issues because of a deviated septum and having always disliked my profile. I had a big dorsal hump on my nose and my tip was quite low. I chose Dr. Ayala for my surgeon because of his awesome credentials and compassion. Dr. Ayala is absolutely phenomenal!!! He is truly gifted, I'm so happy with my Septorhinoplasty. I breath better than ever and my profile looks absolutely beautiful and truly natural. Best choice I have ever made to have chosen the Best Facial Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Ayala!!!!
Soon after beginning using allergy drops I have noticed less sinus headaches, facial pain, and sinus pressure. I especially appreciate the convenience of using the drops without having to go into the office for injections. Thank you Dr. Ayala for offering me this option.
I was very impressed with the positive atmosphere that I experienced from the moment I arrived at the office, until the final follow up appointment. This level of professionalism is not generally the "norm" in this area. I will definitely spread the word about this doctor and his staff.
Dr. Carlos Ayala is an amazing plastic surgeon. I could not be happier with the outcome of my upper eyelid surgery. He is easy to speak with and you always have his full attention. He really explains the procedure in detail in the consultation. I had my surgery done in his office. No general anesthesia, NO PAIN! (not kidding) No pain at all. Appointments are fast and to the point. The staff is WONDERFUL, very friendly and always helped when I had questions before and after the surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Carlos Ayala.
Wonderful Doctor and staff. Excellent bedside manner, listened to my concerns and explained the procedures thoroughly. He was honest about what to expect and the outcome. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Ayala is a soft-spoken person who really cares for his patients. Dr. Ayala explained everything in detail on my first visit and asked me to make a list of questions for my next appointment. He took the time to answer everything on the list in detail and told me what to expect during and after the surgery. I never felt rushed and he made me feel comfortable about my upcoming surgery. The surgery was for bi-lateral eye lift and brow lift because my lids were drooping so much I could not see clearly. I am truly amazed at how much my vision has improved since the surgery. I would recommend him to anyone that needs this type of surgery.
I had Balloon Sinuplasty about a week ago and I breathe so much better today. It was an in office procedure I was in and out and I even returned to work the next morning with little to no aches and pains. My experience was great because Dr. Ayala made sure I knew what to expect and the anesthesiologist did a great job and keeping me asleep throughout the procedure as well. Dr. Ayala takes his time to explain himself and answer all of my questions. I will definitely continue to recommend him to people I know who are suffering with allergies or sinusitis.
When I decided that I was ready for some facial rejuvenation I knew I would not trust anyone but a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon. I thought I would have to leave the area to a big city but I was fortunate enough, through my research, to find Dr. Carlos Ayala in the McAllen, Texas area. Dr. Ayala's staff was very nice and welcoming. Dr. Ayala was very professional and spent time listening to my concerns and explaining procedures and limitations. I was very happy and satisfied with my results and highly recommend Dr. Ayala to anyone looking to refresh their appearance for the better.
I would highly recommend Dr. Ayala. My whole procedure was great beacause of his care!
I was looking for a DR to suture my ears so I can head to the military, about five years ago I began stretching my ears and had plugs in place, I went up to a double zero. Having looked around online I found DR. Ayala and set up a consultation, I went in staff was nice and friendly, DR went step by step telling about how this procedure can be done. The operation went smooth minimal pain and was very relaxing. Over all I am very satisfied with the results and I would highly recommend DR Ayala to anyone looking to have this type of procedure done.
I have been seeing Dr. Ayala for the past several months, and have been very impressed from his staff to his expertise. I was warmly welcomed and very efficiently taken care of by Dr. Ayala and staff with no waiting time. I would definitely recommend this practice with no reserve. Excellence prevails.
My husband saw Dr. Ayala with a problem that three other doctors had diagnosed and prescribed treatment. The problem continued and our family doctor, Dr. Salazar, referred me to Dr. Ayala. Within three weeks the problem was resolved and today I went for follow-up and the lesion had completely healed. I would be happy to recommend Dr. Ayala as I feel that he will provide excellent if given the opportunity.
Dr. Ayala is amazing!!! I got a rhinoplasty and I was very satisfied with my results. During recovery I had small discomfort issues and he went ahead scheduled me to see me and make the whole process aS pleasant as possible. His staff is super friendly and they called to check how I was doing after my surgery. He makes himself available if you need anything. My overall experience was great!
I Can't express how grateful I am. Cancer gone and a great job on the surgery. He truly has the gift. I highly recommend him because he truly cares. Thank you Dr. Ayala!
Exceptional service, professionalism, attentiveness and concern! Highly recommended. Great staff. Doctor Ayala was able to fulfill the entire operation the way I wanted, quick recovery, and excellent results.
Dr. Ayala is an awesome doctor, highly recommend him to anybody who may need his specialties. He's very quick to call us in there's little to no wait time, and is very courteous.
I tried the TriPollar treatments and i was really happy witht the results, immediately after the first treatment i saw 2 inches come right off. Would recommend it to anyone who has not been able to achieve there weight loss goals.
He is a very special doctor. He does not rush his procedures. He takes his time and he is very thorough. Great bedside manner and honest. He doesn't over do it on the Botox or Restylane because I have had both done with him. i am very happy with the results on all my procedures. If I had a question or needed something I was seen right away. I highly recommend this doctor. I have also had treatments done with the tripolar machine, both neck and Decollete. The esthetician that does the procedures for the tripolar machine is amazing. The room for the tripolar treatments is tranquil. The procedure does not hurt. Actually, its relaxing. The results have been great. I recommend the tripolar.
Awesome Service and Profesionalism!!
I was a patient of Dr. Ayala for over a year due to shin cancer on my face. He was through in every aspect of his surgerial procedures and always had concerns about my desires and needs
I have served the Air Force for 20yrs and have seen many doctors during this time. Dr. Ayala, without a doubt, is the best doctor/surgeon the AF has to offer and he is going to be truly missed. He cares about his profession, his patients, and the mission. He explains everything in detail and is very skilled in his techniques. He also follows up in detail will ensure you are taken care of throughout your procedure/s.
I'm not one to take time to comment but in this case I just have to let everyone know how pleased I am on the plastic surgery results. The surgery of my neck (corsett) was truly a success! No setbacks and outcome was better than expected. Minimal pain and discomfort. No noticable scars or revisions. Without hesitation, I will send anyone who needs plastic surgery to Dr. Ayala.
Dr. Ayala is great! He explains things very well and doesn't dismiss your concerns.
Dr. Ayala is an amazing surgeon! I say this not only as a patient, but as a surgical technician who assists him in surgery. He truly cares for the well being of his patients. He is caring, kind, and always makes sure he has everything he needs to take care of his patients. I did not have to think twice about going to him about a revision septorhinoplasty because I have seen the results of many of his patients. It has been two months since I had my surgery done and the results have been great! I breathe better and my nose appears thinner! I got the results that I wanted and I couldn't be happier!! I would recommend Dr. Ayala to anyone because I KNOW what a truly amazing surgeon he is!!
Dr. Carlos Ayala is the best doctor I have ever come across in my 18 year military career. I have worked around medical technicians and doctors before and know the demanding schedules, pressures, and patient workload. He is able to handle all of those demands with ease and still come in to work with a big smile on his face, spend time with patients to ensure they are comfortable, and fully understand what to do before the procedure. Dr. Ayala explains in ease to understand detail what to do before the procedure, what he will do during the procedure, and what to do after the procedure. During my procedure which was septo rhinoplasty, he repaired the damage I had suffered to my nose when I was 13 years old. At the age of 36 now I felt it was time to have the surgery done, but I did not trust just anyone to do it. After a long search (nearly all my life), I found the perfect doctor to do septo rhinoplasty surgery. That person is Dr. Carlos Ayala, he changed my life forever. I just had my surgery about a week ago at the age of 36 and I can breathe 100% better than I have in a long time, since I was 13 years old! I cannot thank him enough for all of his hard work, professionalism, and heart he shows me and all of his patients. He is a true credit to his profession and it is an honor to know him.
I highly recommend Dr. Ayala. He is an all-around excellent caregiver with a comfortable presence. His genuine concern for the patient, time spent questioning, educating and instructing the patient, time spent answering questions and alleviating patient's concerns, etc. are superlative. I am very grateful for having been under his care and expertise.
I had this surgery done I lived the majority of my life with these constant stuffy nose feeling. I was convince after attend a wellness training to deal with it. (that what man do.Right?) After maturing and learning the importance of sleep to your all around health i pursued getting a nose surgery to improve my breathing/sleep by removing any blockage from my air way. The is my 2nd surgery as my first Dr. wanted to be Conservative with how mach he alter to avoid doing irreparable damage. The 1st surgery improved my breathing . This second surgery Fix my breathing -CONS: I didn't follow timeline to begin daily flushing my nose with the saline kit provided on the day the Dr. instructed which cause annoying dry blood crusting blockage- I need to make 4 total appt to have the surgery (consultation, briefing, anesthesiology, operation) -- 10-14 day recoveryPROS:- I received a ton of information on how to prepare for the procedure.- I do not feel a "super" stuffy nose constantly.- I did not have to wear painful splints doing my week of recovery. which was MUCH more comfortable then my first identical surgery.After the 14 day the Dr. recommends you listen to your body and do what you feel up to. So... no specific restrictions but I was maybe 70-80% healed at this point and felt 90% normal. Their with be drainage/crusting as you heal. Continue using the saline nose flushing product as you needed during the healing process. I feel great 1.5 month after surge but the Dr. says I want be 100% for 12 weeks.
Dr Ayala was awesome...I can't express to you how great of a doctor he was. I had a mass behind my ear removed by him. During our first visit together he was very thorough, gave his professional opinion and guided me every step of the way. After my surgery was over, he called to check up on me and still ensured everything was recovering properly during our follow-ups. Others told me he was the best and I've got to experience it...you cannot tell from looking at me that I had a mass behind me ear. Job well done!!!
For 10 yrs. I had this breahing problem.I saw doctor after Doctor and they did not or could could help me. That all change when I saw Dr. Ayala.He diagnosed my problem correctly in one visit,and what I liked the most was that he took his time to explainning what had to be done to my nose, and how long it would take to recuperate. He also indicated that the recovery was going to be uncomfortable. To my surprise there was very little pain with the exception of my ear.It's wonderfull to find a Doctor that would take the time to explain everything via a diagram and pictures of his past experiences. You see I had a colapsed nasal valve and could not breath properly.Thanks to Dr Ayala, I can breath and sleep uniterrupted and comfortably. Thank you Dr. Ayala
Without reservation, I recommend Dr. Carlos Ayala, ENT, and as a Facial Plastic Surgeon ! After years of difficulty breathing due to a deviated septum, I thought I would give it one last chance for a doctor to examine me and see if there was some that could be done to improve my breathing. I had a condition from a previous surgery that I was told I could not be repaired, “pixy ear”. As a 35 year practicing Registered Nurse, I am very analytical about physicians and their practices. I did my homework. I searched the internet and researched Dr. Ayala . God Bless, Dr. Ayala, finally, a caring physician who actually listened to my concerns. When it came time for me to meet with Dr. Ayala, I was impressed! Dr. Ayala sat with me and my husband and discussed options and together we developed a surgical plan to not only help me breathe more effectively, but the ability to repair my “pixy” ear lobe. We decided on a septoplasty, and a mini face lift to repair the “pixy ear” and create symmetry for both sides of the face. Great decision!!! Now, I have an unobtrusive airway and a beautiful jaw line with earlobes instead of “pixy earlobes. Most remarkable was the mini-face lift procedure, it improved my appearance by years. At the age of 58, people often mistake me for being in my mid to late 30’s. Might I add it’s only been 3 weeks! I can hardly wait for 6 month. I highly recommend Dr. Carlos Ayala, ENT as a Facial Plastic Surgeon.
I saw Dr Ayala at the Mike O' Calleghan Federal Hospital in Las Vegas in 2012 for Blepharoplasy surgery on both eyes. The procedure was exemplary, Dr Ayala is so wonderful at explaining not only the procedure but what will take place during the healing course. My results just after two weeks was fantastic and it's due to the great patient care Dr Ayala has given. I recommend this Dr to all those people who want to feel like a person not just a number.
Dr. Ayala did facial laser resurfacing on me. Wow, I LOVE the results! My fair skin was very red and blotchy from years spent in the sun. One session with this laser has produced incredible results. What I appreciate about Dr. Ayala is that he takes his time with me and seems genuinely concerned with my care. I could have seen other doctors for the same procedure, but I chose to wait for him to return from a deployment so that I could be seen ONLY by him. Love Dr. Ayala!
Dr. Ayala was a highly anticipated provider coming in to Nellis AFB and has certainly lived up to the hype! This was my fourth septoplasty and it went extremely well (compared to the other three) and he actualy fixed the problem. I didn't even need pain meds postop. He has extreme knowledge, immense talent and a wonderful bedside manner! I would recommend Dr. Ayala to anyone who needs his services! He's definitely one of the best!
At the age of 4, living in Russia, I broke my nose. Then when I was 17, during the end of the Soviet Union, I finally had my surgery to "fix" my nose which only consisted of removing a piece of septum that was in my nostril. For the past 10 years my nose has been crooked and my breathing growing worse and worse. I finally scheduled an appt. to see Dr. Ayala, who assessed my condition and noted a "bump" at the top, followed by a "dip" in the middle when looking at a profile of my nose. He stated that the surgery to fix it would involve breaking my nose, and possible adding cartilage in order to reconstruct my nose. It would be an in depth procedure, but he was confident that he could not only get me breathing through my nose again, but also make it look good in the process. After a 4.5hour surgery, I awoke to a nose that while not "packed" was slightly swollen and two black eyes which is normal for the surgery. Amazingly even with all the trauma of surgery I could already breath through my nose. While I did swell a little, but I was surprised at how little the swelling was, especially for a 4.5hr surgery. When the splint was removed a week later, we compared the picture Dr. Ayala had shown me before surgery, to what it was now. His picture was a mirror image of the final result. If you are looking for a doctor that seems to be a perfectionist, look no further. Although the surgery lasted 4.5hrs I'm sure plenty of time was taken to get everything "just right" and I have a nose that not only looks amazing, but I can finally breath like never before!
Dr Ayala is patient centered and a skilled surgeon with excellant outcomes. I had bilateral upper eyelid Blepharoplasty and facial laser resurfacing done by Dr Ayala and am extremely satisfied with the results. I highly recommend Dr Ayala.
Super, super, super! An amazing doctor! I have Bells Palsy and have been receiving botox shots and a filler from Dr. Ayala for the residuals. He has helped me greatly in improving symmetry in my face, which in turn has helped me greatly in improving my self esteem. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable about what he does, but he also has a fantastic bedside manner. He is kind and sympathetic. Another plus is he doesn't guarantee things he can't do. He is very honest about what he expects your results to be. He does not speak down to you, instead treats you with respect. I could not have asked for a better experience. If you get the chance to be treated by him, it will be exactly that, A TREAT!
