I've been self-conscious about my ears since early childhood. I feel very lucky that that Dr. Barrera and Dr. Lujan performed my otoplasty (ear pinning). They work together as a great team and maximize patient comfort and safety. Three months since my surgery and I love the results. I highly recommend Dr. Barrera if you are seeking an outstanding plastic surgeon in the San Antonio, TX., area.

1 week post rhinoplasty and I feel amazing. I am also a resident physician and I had my own hesitations seeking rhinoplasty, I researched long and hard for someone like Dr. Barrera. I can speak with great confidence when i say that Dr. Barrera is truly one of the greatest plastic surgeons there is out there. What makes him so amazing is not only the fact that he is so intelligent and strongly trained but that he is so personable, so humble, and has such a gentle nature. This is something that is truly very difficult to find in a renowned plastic surgeon. He goes out of his way to make your wishes heard while also catering to make sure your face still feels like you. I would strongly recommend him to anyone seeing any facial surgery.

1 month post-op visit for genioplasty and necklift. Dr explained my progress in a way that was easy to understand, and answered all of the questions I had. He put me at ease about some concerns I had about swelling. Overall I am extremely happy with my results and am excited to see how my lower face looks as the swelling continues to subside.

Mid-Face lift on January 10, 2019. Surgery was done in a private operating room in doctor's office. After surgery I was in tremendous pain over and around my left ear. When I got home the pain had gotten so bad that I took the bandage off in that area so I could see it. That's when I saw a large abrasion over my left ear. The outer lobe was very swollen. After a few days I had a goose egg on my left cheek. Doctor he said it was nothing and to massage it flat. Every time it swelled back up in 15 minutes. Little tiny particles of something were coming out of the outer lob. I went to another doctor who diagnosed the swelling as a bad infection. He gave me a huge shot of sulfa drug and followed with some super strong pills of penicillin. In a week the goose egg was gone. My earlobe stayed swollen for 1-1/2 yrs and little tiny pieces of something like metal or glass kept coming out. Also my chin implant had to be removed due to a horrendous inflammation and infection.
