Breast Augmentation

2 weeks post op. When i was looking for a breast augmentation I literally stalked reviews, Instagram, fb, surgeons in general. I don't even know where to begin. Family is the best word. From the moment you walk into this office you are treated like family. From the front office to Deisy the patient coordinator (I love her!, I want her job! She's just so happy and smiley all of the time!, and so attentive to your needs, call her anytime!) to meeting with Dr. V. He is kind, compassionate, so respectful and just talented. He has a gift from god. Dr V was not the only doctor i had a consultation with but he was the last one after meeting him. I just completely felt at ease around him and automatically felt like I could TRUST him. You have to be able to trust the person you hand your body over to!. And I don't trust many people so that was a sign for sure. I've never had surgery before and it was a breeze, the whole OR team make you feel safe and don't really give you time to get anxious. The last words I said to him was, "please make them look beautiful". He replied, "i surely will". And, he did. I just had my 2 week post op and I couldn't be happier. Like y'all I have some super nice boobs and im picky! My advice if this is your first breast augmentation is to go with Dr. V recommendation on size. I let him choose everything. They are bigger than I expected he would pick but totally perfect for my body size. I love them! He has the eye of an artist and the hands of a watchmaker. Any reviews you've read that have said he's rude are misunderstood, let me tell you. He will not sugar coat things, he is strict about diet, pre op and post op instructions and is very straight to the point. NO SALT. I think he sees it as a teamwork. He will give you the boobs you want but you have to follow his instructions also to achieve the best results and he can be blunt about that. It's because he's a master of his craft . I think he's great and I think you should go and see him, if you're considering a breast augmentation and don't, you're mad! And he always gives hugs!! If you're on the fence, go see him. See for yourself. I love the billing lady too! She's awesome. The whole team is awesome. And special thanks to the lady you meet first on day of surgery and of course the OR nurses and anesthesiologist. And out of hours nurse.They are a 24 hr operation. DREAM TEAM!! I would never go anywhere else!!! So very happy. THANKYOU FOR MAKING ME FEEL A MILLION DOLLARS THROUGHOUT!!

Blepharoplasty and Breast Implants

Dr Vitenas in Houston is hands down the best plastic surgeon. Last year i decided i was going to have my under eye bags removed. After a lot of research i chose Dr Vitenas, and oh my goodness, the results were tremendous. I was only 36 and those hereditary eye bags made me look soooo awful, and after he did the blepharoplasty, it took away 15 years off my face. He also recommended some juviderm on my cheeks and i can't stress enough the genius nature of this man. Everyone compliments me on how young i look and i just chuckle , if they only knew. A year later i decided i had to have some breast implants put in, and i went right back to him and he was just as amazing. From the consult, his office staff, the surgery, i truly felt that he actually truly cares for his patients. He is genuine, and explains everything and i am so thankful to him and his staff. I would recommend him to everyone who desires to have anything done, he is one special doctor..

Worth it with Dr. Vitenas!

I would give Dr. Vitenas and his staff 10 stars if I could! After months of review, I had a list of Doctors I was going to call for my breast augmentation. At the top of my list to call was Dr. Vitenas and that was the first and last call I made that day. The moment I got someone on the phone I couldn't have felt more comfortable. I spoke with Lindsay who is a complete doll! Had all my questions answered and even scheduled my consultation for that very same day! When arrived the place was beautiful and very clean and the staff was the sweetest. Dr. Vitenas made me feel very safe and really paid attention to what I was wanting as far as natural looking breast. Scheduled my surgery for 2 weeks after that and have to say its the best decision yet! Looking forward to bikini shopping this Spring! If you are looking for a Dr. and want excelent service I definitely recommend Dr. Vitenas you wont be disappointed!

After visiting with other "top" docs, Dr. Vitenas is my choice!

Im absolutely pleased with my whole experience so far! I've been to 4 other doctors to come down to making a decision and Dr. Vitenas and his staff are by far the best! They are very professional and knowledgeable. His coordinator, Cherie is the best (I have no words to describe her kindness and responsiveness)- they made me feel cared for. The staff at the hospital he operates were amazing (I asked the RN "why are you guys so happy here? - she said they treat the employees well so they will have happy employees)- Im paying 4K more for this procedure and I feel is worth it! I was a little bit insecure and I told Cherie whom took her time and asked me to go back again and speak with Dr. Vitenas AGAIN...... we met and I felt 100% sure he is my surgeon of choice! He is honest and will guide you to the right direction, he wont take your money if you dont need it done - I wanted to do one more procedure and he was very honest with me. I never visited with a surgeon that would give me a no, and Dr. Vitenas did - So we agreed to go ahead with the other procedures :) Im very saisfied with the whole experience!
