Dr. de Olarte- - my personal fountain of youth

Dr. de Olarte has been my surgeon for 22 years. She always delivers what she says she can do and I am very happy with the results! She's very skilled in what she does and always compassionate with patients. I wouldn't consider going to anyone else.

Eyelid Surgery

I had upper and lower Eyelid Surgery with Dr. Gloria De Olarte and she did an amazing job. I was looking very tired all the time and had extra skin from the bags under my eyes. Makeup was not doing the job, eye creams or cooling pads were not doing anything for me. I had eyelid surgery on my mind for a couple of years and finally decided to get it done. I found Dr. De Olarte, she was great and explained everything in detail during my consultation. Once I made my decision she went more in depth on my first appointment before my surgery. Post-op she was very caring, I had a few post-op appointments to check on my recovery and she would call me between appointments to be sure I was ok. I am very happy with my results and highly recommend her. I will be seeing her again soon.

Five Stars

I had my first procedure in 2006 (mommy make-over) and my second procedure in 2015 (skin tightening on arms). The results were excellent both times. Dr. De Olarte is very professional, but also very personable and truly cares for her patients. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking cosmetic treatment.

twice disappointed

I had a beast augmentation with Dr. de olarte in 2003 and again in 2013. I don't know why I went back considering I was disappointed with the first breast augmentation. This time around I was extremely disappointed. Both times she's left my right breast slightly smaller than my left! I can see it although she continues to say their the same. I kept getting bills from the hospital lab and Pathology dept. It took several months for her to take care of that. 2 yrs after I'm still dissatisfied. Her staff was also extremely rude and not helpful. Provided me with incorrect information. I'm never going back and unfortunately I'll have to have another procedure to correct my smaller breast.

Dr, de Olarte gave me a new lease on life along with my plastic surgery

18 years ago, I was a young mother who consulted Dr. de Olarte about what I thought I needed to restore my previously 27” waistline after delivering by C-section 2 weeks late an almost 10 pound baby. I thought liposuction would fix me right up. Dr. de Olarte looked at me and immediately pronounced that I needed a tummy-tuck. I was indignant. I was only 25 years old and I thought tummy-tucks were for old ladies. I was determined to diet and exercise the “Mom flap” away. Over the years, I gained and lost the same 10 pounds, but that pouch never went anywhere. My self-esteem took a huge hit every time I looked in the mirror at that monstrosity. To add insult to injury, as time when on my previous 36Ds deflated and began to hang lower and lower. At the age of 41, I had a partial hysterectomy because of uterine fibroids. With the reality of having no more children and an end result of laparoscopic surgery scars added to the stretch-marked monstrosity that was my belly, I consulted with two other plastic surgeons regarding a tummy tuck. Both were male, and while no doubt fully capable of performing a tummy-tuck, seemed somewhat disinterested observers during the consultations. I went back to Dr. de Olarte to discuss the tummy-tuck and I’m so glad I did. She is fiery and passionate about her patients, her practice and her plastic surgery! She is warm and genuine for a surgeon of her caliber and completely unpretentious. During one of my follow ups, a small stain soiled Dr. de Olarte’s resplendent white silk dress. I was almost afraid to point it out to her because I thought she’d be furious with me for ruining it. She shrugged it off and said, “It happens.” That certainly wasn’t the response I was expecting! Dr. de Olarte has the beauty of Sophia Vergara, the medical knowledge of Dr. Oz, the “been there, seen that” sensibility of Dr. Drew and the earthiness of Oprah Winfrey. Dr. de Olarte gave me a waistline that rivals that of my high school cheerleader days and 38DDs. But what I really appreciate about the surgery was the care and concern Dr. de Olarte showed me during my recovery with her frequent calls to check up on me. During my follow up visits, we speak of a wide variety of topics. I feel like I am more than just a procedure to her, but a whole human being.
