My Cosmetic Surgery in Miami, FL with Reviews -

Coral Gables Cosmetic Centers
Last month, after an extensive and exhausting hunt for a top notch plastic surgery clinic in Miami, my wife and I ran into Coral Gables Cosmetic Center. After two kids, we decided it was time for her to gain the confidence she had when she was younger. From the time we walked through the doors, we felt mesmerized by the service and the courtesy in which we were treated. In the front we were greeted by Roxanna who walked us through the process without a hassle. Then, Norma, the coordinator helped us understand what we were really looking for in my wife. Dr. Krau met us after and from then on we felt we could trust Coral Gables Cosmetic Center. After just two hours, we decided this was the place that met our needs. We scheduled the surgery two weeks from then. On surgery day, my wife was very nervous but the staff at Coral Gables Cosmetic Center made sure all her fears went away by providing her comfort the entire way. Recovery was fast and she went home the same day. We received a very convenient courtesy call the day of the surgery and the day after. Recovery was a fast and a painless process. We are very satisfied and would blindly recommend Coral Gables Cosmetic Center for any cosmetic surgical needs.

I came for Botox to freshen up my face and soften wrinkles. Dr. Ofer recommended Xeomin as a Botox alternative that is just as effective but less expensive, so I went with it (who does not want to save money.). He used tiny needles and plenty of ice so I hardly felt it! He also suggested a filler (Radiesse) to enhance my cheekbones (which seemed to have fallen over the last ten years) and some in my chin to balance out my profile (I am blessed with a 'strong' nose but never wanted to risk a nose job). He put a local anesthetic for that part so that did not hurt either. I must say that I am super impressed with all of it, especially how well the chin thing worked! I never would have thought to ask for that, but I guess that is what a real plastic surgeon can see. The cheekbones and chin are subtle tweaks--I still look like me, but just better. He took the time to answer all my questions and did not rush me or push me on any of it. It did not take long, but there was some swelling for a few hours, so I would suggest giving yourself a half day off after your visit if you get any filler. I will definitely be back!

The staff was amazing and very accomodating. I am from Houston TX and I travelled to Miami alone. My overall experience far exceeded my expectations. From Angel, to Andrea to Ellen, to Valerie, to Coleen to Norma and of coarse Dr Mendieta ...EVERYONE made me feel welcome and at home ...not to forget abt Esther my home health care nurse who went above and beyond to make sure I was very well take care of, she was my recovery Angel and I learned so much from her abt taking care of myself, she is such a loving person and I will always hold her dear to my heart. Now abt Dr. Mendieta, he is God sent with a talent beyond measures! He has a lovable personality that is warm and trusting. He listened to my requests and everything he promised to do he did and then some. I am extremely satisfied with my results and I could not have asked for a better staff and surgeon to experience this with. I have no regrets whatsoever and and I would do it all over again no questions asked.

My experience with this doctor and his staff has been amazing! Dr Rodriguez has outstanding bedside manners. He is extremely attentive and he listens to my concerns and desires. His responses to my questions lets me know that he listens well and is genuinely concerned with my overall well being. He is extremely knowledgeable in his area of expertise and he made me feel safe and confident about my procedures. The office staff treated me with respect from my very first visit. EVERYONE I have encountered has been extremely congenial! They listen to my questions and concerns and they respond with industry knowledge. When they are not sure of something they are honest and they relay my concerns to the doctor and he responds in a timely manner. My surgery went well! I am very pleased with this entire organization! I entrust this facility with my future cosmetic needs and I intend to recommend them to everyone in need.

I have a very specific personality. Doctor Mendieta took notice of my concerns and took time to adjust to my specific needs before and after the surgery. He is extremely professional and his entire staff was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. Dr. Mendieta was direct about what I could expect before and after surgery. He managed my expectations before the procedure so we could come up with a plan specific to what I wanted to gain from my procedure. In my opinion cosmetic surgery is not meant to be quick and cheap. Dr Mendieta and his entire staff were and will continue to be involved in both the planning and healing process that comes with cosmetic surgery. I will continue to be a patient of Dr Mendieta's for any and all future procedures.

Dr. Mendieta was wonderful, my experience from the beginning to the end has been incredible. The whole staff was generous, especially Vivian and Nancy. I almost want to have another surgery just to be in their presence. Colleen, which handles the front desk, made me feel welcomed every time I would give the office a call. Everyone here just has a very warm character and very easy to talk to. I felt like family and I just wish every doctor's office could give me the same experience the I have had at Dr. Mendieta's. You guys are awesome and I am recommending any and everyone I can to you. A huge Thank You!

Every single interaction with him has been thoroughly positive and I have felt truly cared for. Examples of his excellent service include his checking in on me in my home (at my request) the day after the surgery to ensure I was healing well; being readily available to see me for all follow-ups; working on some scar tissue (without charge) and always being very open to hear about and answer any concerns or questions I may have.It also goes without saying that I am extremely satisfied with the look and feel of my breast.

I feel like Dr. Mendieta is a one of a kind artist. I do not believe I would have achieved my amazing results with any other surgeon. I am only one month post op and cannot believe the progress. I especially notice in the type of clothing I can wear now with my slim hourglass shape vs my previous body. I have a lot of respect for his talent. Keep up the good hard work Dr. Mendieta! Worth every penny! Bottom line, do not let yourself be a horror story victim cause you want to be cheap, stick with the best!

Dr. Rodriguez is a true artist. He takes plastic surgery to the next level. I highly recommend him to anyone who is seeking an excellent result. For Botox, he is the absolute best. I have been to other doctors for Botox, and my results with Dr. Rodriguez were beyond question the best of the best. Multiple people commented, and they all asked me for my doctor's name. He is also caring and provides a full and thorough explanation of everything. I give Dr. Rodriguez my absolute highest recommendation.
Tips & Advices
Plastic surgery comes from the Greek word “plastikos,” which means “to mold” or “to change.” Plastic surgery is a specialty in the restoration, reconstruction, or alteration of the human body. It includes cosmetic or aesthetic surgery, but also includes reconstructive surgery, craniofacial surgery, hand surgery, microsurgery, and burn treatment.
The vast majority of cosmetic surgical procedures occur on an outpatient basis. With more extensive surgery, such as a tummy tuck, a previous health condition, or monitoring is needed, the doctor might require a short hospital stay.
Depending on the procedure, cosmetic surgery can cost anywhere from several -hundred dollars for facial “filler” injections to $20,000 for extensive invasive surgery. In addition to the surgeon’s fee, the patient or insurance company will be responsible for a surgical facility fee, anesthesia, medical tests, prescriptions, surgical garments, and other miscellaneous costs related to surgery.
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the top five cosmetic surgical procedures in 2016 were:
  • Liposuction (414,335 procedures)
  • Breast Augmentation (310,444 procedures)
  • Tummy Tuck (181,540 procedures)
  • Eyelid Surgery (173,883 procedures)
  • Breast Lift (161,412 procedures)
Common nonsurgical cosmetic procedures include Botox injections, laser hair removal, and laser skin resurfacing.
While there is no definitive age minimum or maximum for a given procedure, most doctors won’t operate on minors for cosmetic reasons. Beyond the actual surgery, the risks of general anesthesia should be a major consideration for elderly patients.  Good doctors will advise patients against a procedure they think is unnecessary, carries unwanted risk, or won’t produce the desired outcome.
