First class service. White glove experience. Concierge attention. From the consultation to my results and openness to discuss any concerns, Dr Lapuerta and his staff genuinely care about who you are as a person and your treatment/recovery. This is definitely not a revolving door type of place. You're seen as a unique individual and treated with high respect. 3months after my procedure, 0 problems, 100% HAPPY!

I recently had a tummy tuck and a hysterectomy done. Dr LaPuerta and staff were awesome. They were very pleasant and caring before and after my procedures. I would recommend them to everyone that plans on having a procedure done. I am well pleased with my results.
I am a health care provider who had 2 major surgeries with Dr. Lapuerta . I am very satisfied! Mine were done in his in office OR (TOP OF THE CLASS), Being knowledgeable of OR needs, I knew I was safe in his. He is a Dr. with a knack for detail and truly loves his work. He has a great MD anesthesiologist who is with you pre, in & post op. The nurses Lisa and now Camie are awesome and very experienced in their job roles. Brandi the pt care coordinator and other office staff are so professional.

I am a breast cancer survivor. I had breast reconstruction in 1988. Over the years it became hard & very uncomfortable. I also suffered from lymph edema & infections in my arm due to the removal of lymph nodes. Along with a complete breast reconstruction, Dr. Lapuerta performed a lymph node transplant from the groin area back to my arm pit. My pain & swelling is so much less now and the infections have ceased thus far. I couldn't be more pleased with the surgery and entire process. Amazing!

Dr. Lapuerta and his staff are amazing!! I had several consultations before meeting with Dr. Lapuerta and just didn't feel as comfortable and confident with any other surgeon as I did when I met Dr. Lapuerta! He has a very warm personality and makes you feel comfortable asking questions. Brenda was very helpful answering questions as well and his Nurse Sam was always prompt in replying to my emails with questions i had after surgery. I absolutely highly recommend Dr. Lapuerta!!!

I want you to know that Dr. Lapuerta and hist patient coordinator, Brandi and his entire staff are phenomenal. He did a full tummy tuck, implant replacement during a hysterectomy. The surgery was long. He gave me his cell and he couldn't have been more caring. His bed side manners make you feel so great and never rushed. I had it done 10/19/16. I am 4 weeks out. He has been there through the entire recovery! I would use him again in a second...thank you! HGG
in League City, TX |
Saw Dr. Lapuerta for a BA & tummy tuck following 3 pregnancies and nursing 3 babies. The entire office staff is kind & compassionate & makes you feel very comfortable. Dr. Lapuerta is thorough & explains the procedures in detail, respectful, & truly cares about each individual patient. Ultimately had a BA for now, as I couldn't afford the downtime with a tummy tuck with a 2 year old. Will be back in a few years for TT! Beyond happy with my results! Dr. L is a perfectionist with his work!

On Sept 1st 2016 Dr. Lapuerta gave me a full lower body lift and fixed my botched breast reduction from 20's with new implants. I searched out many physicians before deciding on Dr. Lapuerta, and Thank God I did. This doctor is amazing. Not only is he caring, and has a great bedside manner, but he listens. Almost a month out and my body is starting to look amazing, and the scaring is minimal. He is just that good. I will always go back for any needs I may have in the future!

I would highly recommend Dr. Lapuerta. He, Brandi and the rest of the team were professional and absolutly the best. After having 3 children, I wanted to get breast implants. I went to a few consultations and choose Dr. Lapuerta. Surgery day I was very nervous and scared because I had never been put under or had any type of surgery the whole staff was very comforting and made me feel at ease. 7 months post op and Im am extremely happy with my results!
in Houston, TX |
I had breast reduction surgery several years ago and the results are amazing. I had no hesitation going to Dr. Lapuerta for my tummy tuck. He and his staff are very friendly especially Dawn and Brandi and I was extremely confident that everything would go well. I am 4wks post op and ecstatic at the results. Everything was thoroughly explained so I was never really nervous. He won plastic surgeon of the year in 2015 so that speaks volumes. 5 stars easily!!

I searched for Dr. Lapuerta to do a tummy tuck and breast lift with implants while I was having a hysterectomy and bladder surgery. I wanted to do all of the surgery with only one anesthesia event at the hospital. He and his staff fully coordinated the surgeries with my urogynecologist's office and made the scheduling process super easy. Brandi was an amazing support in helping me make decisions about the procedures as well as Dr. Lapuerta. The results are perfect. I am completely satisfied

After dreaming about a tummy tuck for years after having had my two sons, I finally did it! I chose Dr.Lapuerta because he had performed a breast reduction/lift on my breasts 12 years ago. My breast still look great after 12 years and two kids! He was so awesome and thorough with me then, I knew that he would perform any and all plastic work performed in the future. Dr. Lapuerta's staff is AWESOME! I feel as though I could contact the office at any time if necessary.

I have had the most amazing experience with Dr. Lapuerta and his amazing staff. From my very first consult I knew he was the surgeon that was going to do my surgery, I looked no further. My surgery went as smooth as silk, my recovery has been a breeze. Any surgery I consider in the future Dr. Lapuerta is the man!!! If your considering surgery, just make an appointment to see him and trust me you will not regret it. Dr Lapuerta, Brandi and Dawn thank you from the bottom of my heart
Houston, TX |
I've been going to Dr. Lapuerta for years, and I am very happy with the care and service that I have received. I had been to other offices before with jacked up prices and high pressure, but you never get that here. Dr. Lapuerta listens to your needs and responds without trying to talk you in to other expensive procedures. His staff is wonderful, and they make the entire experience a pleasure. Would recommend him highly!

Very good, very complete and highly recommend
in Friendswood, TX |
Dr. Lapuerta is easy to talk to. He is extremely knowledgeable and experienced, and I felt very confident in his ability to give me the results I was seeking. After a less than successful cosmetic procedure with another physician, Dr. Lapuerta was not only able to correct the damage that had been done, but he was also able to make the end results better than ever before! The pre-op consultation with his surgical nurse, Dawn, lasted well over an hour. All of my questions were anwered perfectly.
in Deer Park, TX |
Dr La Puerta and staff are the most friendly people there are. I was very nervous about the entire process, but they made me feel very comfortable. This experience has been the best and one I will never forget. The staff is always there to answer any questions or concerns you may have. I will definitely be going back and I would recommend them to all my friends and family.
in Friendswood, TX |
Dr. Lapuerta gave me a face lift in 2007. It turned out just great, he told me what he would be doing and how long it take. He made me very comfortable about the operation. He has a very calming manner about himself. He takes an interest in you as a person. I have gone back to him serveral times for touch ups here and there. I would and have recommended him to my friends and would so in a heart beat.
in Katy, TX |
Dr. Lapuerta and his staff are very professional and make you feel at ease. I have been a patient of his for 5 yrs now and will continue to go to him for all my cosmetic needs. They are always very accommodating with my limited time due to my work schedule. I trust his opinion 100% and his results are just what you were looking for.
in Pearland, TX |
I had a tummy tuck and lipo many years ago...and loved Dr.Lapuerta...he made me feel very comfortable and I loved my results.. I am planning on looking into botox and he would be the only doctor I would allow to do it.
in Pearland, TX |
I highly recommend Dr. Lapuerta!! My surgery went well and my results are amazing even though i am only 4 weeks post-op!! I still have some swelling (which is normal) but I already look completely different. His bedside manner is great and the office staff are super nice (Brandy, Lisa and Dawn). Dawn is their nurse and she is so patient and helpful. I swear i called her with questions every week and she always spend the time to explain everything and put me at ease! I could not be happier!!
