Rhinoplasty
Researched many plastic surgeons and ended up going with Dr. Barrera. Best decision I could have made. He gave me the best consultation visit and couldn’t be more happy with the results. I’m one month post op and the results are life changing for the better. Dr Barrera used many techniques and top of the line surgical equipment. I had no bruising after my surgery with minimal pain and swelling. I highly recommend!!!

Rhinoplasty/Septoplasty
Dr. Barrera is board-certified with top-notch expertise. He is especially skilled at preservation rhinoplasty, and operates with precision. My results are better than I could have imagined. He addressed the structural integrity of my nose and also augmented my appearance. He listened to my input and delivered a natural look with a more pleasing appearance. Highly recommend!

Three years Later
Three years later after my revision procedure, I am even happier with the results. Dr. Barrera was the best choice for me. I especially liked his bedside manner, the results I could hope for, his patience with multiple questions and the genuine care I feel I received. Looking back and into the future, I would always choose him. He's the best.

Best Doctor!
I wasn’t sure what I could expect for my result since my nose had a severe deviated septum and deformity. Dr.Barrera exceeded my expectations and has changed my life. I can breathe through my nose for the first time in a long time and am so pleased with my nose’s appearance. I had surgery a week ago and my surgery and recovery went extremely well. The anesthesiologist, hospital and nurses were great too. I am so thankful for both doctors and his team.

The best experience ever. I turned to Dr. Barrera for some concerns I had with a treatment I got done by another doctor. He and his staff were so great, they listened to my concerns and answered all my questions. I left feeling so relieved knowing that I was in good care and trust and value his opinion. Would recommended to a friend and would definitely go back.

I had a septo-rhinoplasty with Dr Barrera and at one month post op I couldn’t be happier. I was very impressed with Dr. Barrera and his staff. Everyone was so professional, and his attention-to-detail gave me confidence that I made the right choice. My experience was wonderful, from consultation to surgery post op the staff was always ready and willing to answer questions. Trust me, if you’re interested in a rhinoplasty you’re in good hands with Dr. Barrera and his amazing team!

I’ve had lip filler and dysport with Dr. Barrera before but yesterday I finally tried under eye and cheek filler. I’m a tad sore but I have very minimal swelling and no bruising. I initially wanted more filler under the eyes but Dr. Barrera suggested we start with just a little bit. I’m glad I listened to him because the results look so natural which is what I was going for. It hasn’t even been 24hrs and I’m already so happy with his work. Dr. Barrera is the only person I will trust with my face!

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.

I received a rhinoplasty at the beginning of January and am now three months post op. I am very happy so far with my results and look forward to my continued healing. Dr. Barrera's staff is very welcoming and knowledgeable. The office is also beautiful and very clean. Dr. Barrera is such a gentle, kind, and meticulous expert and I made the right choice in selecting him as my plastic surgeon. I would recommend him to anyone considering getting a rhinoplasty.
