I had explant with breast lift surgery by Dr. Buenaventura about 12 months ago and her skills are second to none. Did not encounter a single problem after the surgery and you can't see the scars. They had now turned the color of my skin and I feel like a million bucks! She is a gifted plastic surgeon and I thank my lucky stars I found her. I am not going back to her for a Tummy Tuck and Liposuction of the hips. I'm more than comfortable returning to her for additional surgeries.

I went to Dr Buenaventura for a breast reduction. She and the ladies who worked at her office always had a calming and caring attitude. My surgery went as close to perfect as anything done by humans can be. I don't know if Dr Buenaventura or the hospital (Alexandria INOVA Hospital) did this on purpose, but the nurse who prepped me for surgery had also had a breast reduction. Talking to someone who had been through the surgery and who could tell me what it was like in first person was a big help.
