Roughly three weeks ago, I had a SmartLipo procedure from Dr. Careaga. I had seen him about six years ago, and had some procedures at that time. Word of mouth brought me in originally, but there is no substitute for the one-on-one attention and meticulous results that Dr. Careaga brings. He is known for his natural-looking results, and I knew I would see him again. The SmartLipo technique is amazing, I’m so happy Dr. Careaga recommended it. I was back to work in only four days.

My ultimate goal was to get a flatter stomach with a snatched waist. However, that was not the case. I was cut in places that I did not agree too, which resulted to keloid scars. This doctor did not have good bedside manners. Also, he was very unprofessional. His staff supports him in whatever decision he makes whether it's good, or bad. Since I had my surgery performed by this doctor, I have never received a follow up call from them. If I can upload pictures to this website, I will, but I can't

I decided to have a breast augmentation in February. My friend recently had the same procedure, so I could completely relate with her experience. She saw Dr. Careaga, and came away with amazing results. I had one breast removed and really wanted this fixed. The final results from my surgery are so amazing, my breasts look and feel incredibly natural. It is wonderful how caring and kind Dr. Careaga is. Through the whole process, he listened to what I wanted and determined exactly what would give

I had a tummy tuck and breast lift/ augmentation with Dr. Careaga and I am blown away by the results. He is very personable and caring towards my concerns. Dr. Careaga made me feel comfortable and gave me a body I had only dreamt about! He truly is the best! I didn't even bother looking into any other surgeon after I saw the belly buttons he does. I know I will only be going to him with any other plastic surgery needs. And his staff is amazing. Laura the masseuse, Paola and kathrine are great!

I had two pregnancies, which resulted in flaccid, lax skin along my abdomen. This made me think that I would have to find a surgical procedure to get my old body back. A good friend of mine referred me to Dr. Daniel Careaga. What sold me on his services were his explanations of the needed procedures, the cutting-edge treatments used, and the overall amount of time Dr. Careaga gave to my needs. Everything was quick and easy. Dr. Careaga’s office is well-located and extremely clean. Dr. Careaga, f

Dr. Careaga and his staff are the best! From the first time we met, his attention to detail, patience and professionalism were incredible. I had the procedure in April 2015. After the surgery, I had a million questions and wanted to make sure that I was healing properly and that I did everything that I could for a fast recovery. Lizandra in particular was extremely attentive and even responded after hours to make sure that I was comfortable. Who else does that? NOBODY!!

Dr. Careaga did my Brazilian Butt Lift on October 4th. I am grateful for his excellent work and bedside manner. I have always wanted to be curvier, my whole life. After several consultations, I settled on Dr. Careaga and he did a great job. It was more painful than I imagined, but the results are amazing.

I came to dr Careaga for a breast lift and lipo. I was very nervous about my breast lift since I think this is more important and harder to master. Now having done the procedure they came out perfectly symmetrical and better then I would have ever imagined. My experience from beginning to end was amazing the surgical coordinator Lara always answered all my questions and never rushed me made me feel reassured always. And Laura giving me my messages is amazing she is sculpting my body perfectly an

I found Dr. Careaga on the Internet. After a consultation, he did my liposuction and fat grafting in October. I had tried to lose weight, but I was getting older. Now, my stomach is flat and my figure looks great. Everything at Dr. Careaga’s was wonderful and positive. I highly recommend Dr. Careaga to others who are looking to improve their body contours because he can really bring great results. Dr. Careaga is truly like Michael Angelo with a scalpel.

I want to thank my amazing doctor for the successful life changing surgery he performed for me! I am so happy with my result! His attention to detail is out of this world. I appreciate his quality of work and will recommend him to anyone that is looking to improve their body... the practice is amazing and staff really makes you feel like you are part of the family! Thank you again doctor for the amazing work!

I did a reduction & scar revision on my stomach. I went to the consultation the Dr. was very pleasant and said that he could do a good job. The following day after surgery I noticed my breast had a flap of skin and the other one was not round and flat at one side. He told me to wait that it will take 3 months. then he said wait for 6 months finally we went on for a year. He wants to charge me another $4000. which i orgingally paid $14,000. I DO NOT RECOMMEND HIM. he should have fixed his mistake

Worst customer service ever.... The doctor is a nice person but when it comes to repairing something they did wrong they are not reliable they dont take responsability for anything even when the work wasnt completed. I had an earlobe done back in june, the stitches came off the day after even tho my ear was covered by the doctor, went back next day and they say theres was nothing ghey can do that i needed to wait at least 1 month, i been scheduling appointments which they always cancel for some

I was so incredibly nervous before surgery. Now, 5 weeks later, it has been one of the best choices that I have ever made in my life! And it's all thanks to the amazing Dr. Careaga! I did a lot of research before deciding to have him perform my surgery and I can tell anyone who is contemplating it that his office, his staff and his surgical skills are exemplary!!! Knowing that his operating room was the same as a hospital setting gave me peace of mind that I was in great hands.

I have two children and wanted to have a breast augmentation for a long time. I was afraid because it's surgery. But most of all I needed it, physically. I found about Dr. Careaga through his Facebook page and it really was the best option, because I had read many reviews before going there and read all the reviews he had online. It was my first appointment with a doctor, but from the moment I arrived I knew it would be having the procedure done there. I wanted them to look real and they do!

I love the doctor. Let me count the ways...one for my hips, one for my waist, one for my booty, and one for getting rid of that pooch you belly! He is sweet and caring. You won't do better than this in Miami.

I strongly advise anyone who is considering having any kind of fillers done in this office to THINK TWICE! I was charged twice and then given one syringe free because the product was not working after two tries, and now I am stuck with a bill of $1,100 for fillers that didn't even make a difference in my appearance. Went to another office and had the same product, results actually lasted after just one try. I'm positive they diluted the product and that is why I did not see any changes!!! BEWARE

received the most thorough, personal and realistic consultation which ultimately drove me to choosing Dr. Careaga, and his professional staff, to perform my breast augmentation & lift procedure. His experience and credentials speak volumes. He is double board certified, makes you feel extremely comfortable, educates you on the 'procedure of interest' while dedicating ample time on any questions you may have. He's the best.

Before consulting with Dr. Careaga, I saw three other doctors, but this is the office where I really felt welcomed. I had a tummy tuck and liposuction on April 13th. Dr. Careaga’s staff was polite, and he went over the details of everything. I just felt very comfortable. After having four kids, I was having a hard time losing my stomach and the belly fat. I wanted to feel better about myself, so I had saved up to do the surgery. My experience here was fantastic and I highly recommend Dr. C

I saw Dr. Careaga last March for a breast augmentation. After doing online research, I made an appointment with Careaga; he was the first doctor I spoke with. Once I found out that he was experienced with the gummy bear implants, I knew I was sticking with him. The natural look was important to me and I am very happy with my results so far. I feel back to normal, like before I had my babies. My breasts are fuller and natural. Everything is excellent.

About 30 days ago, Dr. Careaga did my tummy tuck. The office has very nice people and always work with my appointments. Word of mouth initially brought me in to see Dr. Careaga. Once I did some research, I liked how his incisions looked and then I was also comfortable when I met his anesthesiologist. It's only been one month since my tummy tuck, so I'm still a little bit swollen, but as the swelling goes down I'll get to see the final results. I?m very hopeful everything will turn out perfect

Dr. Careaga is truly an excellent doctor! I had lost a lot of weight and had a ton of saggy droopy skin, so I had my tummy tuck done with him in December. I am so happy with my results. Everything looks as it should and I can?t complain about anything. I was really surprised that I had no pain and when I went home everything went perfectly fine. I am so satisfied with my entire amazing experience with Dr. Careaga and his staff.
