I had an excellent experience from the first moment I met Dr. Juan Ortiz at North Raleigh Plastic Surgery. I was scheduled to meet with four doctors for a consultation for blepharoplasty, full abdomen liposuction, and neck lift. I wanted a surgeon who was skilled but also someone who listens to what I wanted from my procedures. The moment I meet Dr. Ortiz, I felt comfortable. I explain to Dr. Ortiz that I had on bag under my left eye but did need anything done to the right eye. It was refreshing, and he never tried to push me into any additional procedure on my right eye. We talked about the neck lift and Liposuction procedure, as well. I left his office feeling he listen. The next day I called his office because I had another question, but I was told by Dr. Ortiz's staff you can come in and see Dr. Ortiz. Later that day, I went into his office, and I had just some general questions about risks. Dr. Ortiz explained to me the risk and realistic expectations. As I got up to leave the room, Dr. Ortiz said something that helped me decide that my search for a Plastic Surgeon was over, "if you have any questions or concerns that I can answer come by anytime." That same day I scheduled all three of my procedures. My surgery was on September 27, 2019. I wanted to hold off writing my review because I wanted to make sure his skills were also excellent. I had no pain or itching to my left eye, only some swelling that went away in a few days. The neck lift I had a little discomfort and numbness around my ears and chin area, which I consider to be normal. The liposuction to my abdomen and love handles were very uncomfortable and felt weird to the touch. Two months post-surgery, I'm anxious to see my final six months results. My procedure has given me the motivation I needed to eat healthily and exercise. When I reach my six months, I will post the before and after pictures. Dr. Ortiz's staff is also excellent.
