Loved dr bafitis and staff I’m very happy I picked him for my surgery.i would definitely recommend him .
Lake Worth, FL |
Dr. Bafitis is a very talented surgeon. It has now been exactly one month since he completed my neck lift and I couldn't be happier with the result. I found Dr. Bafitis to be sensitive to my concerns and he took the time, without pressure, to address each of my questions throughout the entire process. Likewise, I have been very impressed with his thorough post surgical care. He is personable, approachable and posses excellent bedside manners! Kudos to Dr. Bafitis and his staff!

Dr. Bafitis is a brilliant plastic surgeon who performed two procedures for me. I had my eyes done (Blepharoplasty) and male breast reduction, Gynecomastia surgery. The results were amazing, and exactly what I was looking for. He and his team made this a very stress free and wonderful experience.

Simply the best in his field. His art is testimony to his work.

My experience with Dr. Bafitis was amazing. I could not be any happier with my decision. I was very nervous going into this surgery, but Dr. B and his staff goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and well taken care of. My results have been amazing and I am only two weeks post op. He is indeed a perfectionist and will not disappoint! I would recommend to ANYONE I know looking for plastic surgery.

As a man I was skeptical of what a plastic surgeon could really do, but now that its over I'm mad that I waited this long. If you have any questions don't just read this go and see him and his staff and see what a miracle worker he is.

I had a reverse tummy tuck two months ago, he is the ultimate surgeon. I am 66 years old and he gave me the body of a 46 year old. I strongly recommend him and his skilled staff.A

I had a terrible, horrific experience with Dr. Bafitis and his staff. I experienced some complications and not one person cared, called or had any concern or compassion at all. I suffered for weeks, ended up getting help from another surgeon who saved me from something that could have never healed properly. I was traumatized and he made me feel terrible when i tried to communicate my feelings at his office. Do not fall for this charming Dr who is only a D.O. I would'nt recommend him to a DOG

Dr. Bafitis is an amazing person and even better surgeon. Staff is awesome and very friendly. His work is awesome as I barely had any bruising after my surgery and the recovery process was not as bad as I initially thought it to be. I had surgery to remove gyno along with liposuction so that I would not have an indentation. During surgery he played music to help calm me down which was great. If you are ever looking to get any work done, I highly recommend Dr. Bafitis as your surgeon of choice!

My experience with Dr. Bafitis was truly excellent. He was honest with me regarding my goals and procedure expectations. After surgery, I was very happy with my results. His staff has been caring since day one, and continues to be. I will use and recommend him to others without hesitation.

I love my 65 year old new face. My face and neck are smooth and tight in a natural looking way. My eyes and lifted brows also make me feel confident and comfortable. I wasn't sure I would be able to achieve my treatment goals as my husband had died and I had a dog to care for. Dr Bafitis and his staff put the team together to help me successfully manage surgery and recovery at home. Dr. Bafitis is a terrific, dedicated surgeon and artist. I highly recommend him.
in Palm Beach Gardens, FL |
Dr. Bafitis is a incredible doctor and I am extremely pleased with my results. It is apparent that this is his passion and he loves what he does. His enthusiasm is contagious. I really feel like he shares in the excitement of my results. The high level of medical expertise combined with his caring heart took the whole experience to a level I have never received from a medical doctor before.
