I had been talking about getting a neck/facelift for a long time. I decided to take the leap this year, and there was no hesitation as to my choice of surgeons: Dr. Soares was the No. 1 recommendation I always heard from women over the years. From the moment I met Dr. Soares, I felt at ease and knew I was in good hands. His kindness and caring nature equals his excellence as a surgeon. His nurses and staff are wonderful. Best of all, I'm thrilled with the results!!!

He is kind and knowledgeable and explains things very well.
Had a breast lift with implants. I'm sick about the fact I will have to redo surgery because my breast look exactly the same just a little smaller and a lot of scars. Still need a lift and I'm still paying for the one Dr. Soares was supposed to give me. So sad I didn't get even close to what I had been told or hoped for. He has a terrible memory and that made me nervous enough, I should have listened to my instinct and not not all of the people who rave about him. very unfair!

Dr. Soares and his staff were SUPER friendly and his work is AMAZING. I had upper eyelid blepharoplasty, and I can't say enough, how ECSTATIC I am with the results. Friends and family didn't realize how heavy my lids were until they saw my after results. The procedure was affordable, and I had no pain during or after the procedure. If I could give Dr. Soares TEN stars I would. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU Dr. Soares!! I LOVE my results.
