Excellent Plastic Surgeon in Costa Rica- Alberto J. Arguello, MD, June 10, 2012, 1:14 am
I’ve had several procedures performed by Dr. Arguello, all with excellent results. I chose him because of his credentials and reputation, but after meeting him I discovered what a wonderful person he is. He’s very personable, charming, compassionate and totally committed to the care of his patients. He is obviously well respected by his peers, as he is now serving his second term as President of the Costa Rican Association of Plastic, Aesthetic, and Reconstructive Surgery. I initially used Dr. Arguello to do my upper and lower eyelids, and after seeing what a beautiful job he did, I decided to go back and have him do a facelift, necklift and breast lift. I never thought I would have enough confidence in anyone to trust them with my face, but he is that good. I’m thrilled with the results, and how natural my face looks. In fact, after 2 years, those very close to me have never figured out what I did. They tell me how great I look, and assume it's because I've lost weight. Amazingly, I had no bruising after my facelift, which I believe is remarkable. Especially, considering patients I’ve seen who were done by other surgeons, and weren't so fortunate. Dr. Arguello attributes this to his technique. It was a huge relief not to worry about hiding bruises! He did a beautiful job on my ears, which is where a less skilled surgeon often fails, and can be a dead giveaway. Mine look really natural. The scars were very skillfully placed, and are nearly invisible now. You have to look really closely to find them. I’m able to pull my hair back without feeling self-conscious about it. He did a beautiful job on breast lift, as well. I swear the man is a magician! This was a really sensitive issue for me, and he made me feel very comfortable about it. He was very respectful, and of course, professional. I know other patients of his, who have all been really pleased with their surgeries, as well. Dr. Arguello has always taken excellent care of me, even after I have returned home. Any time I have had a question or concern, he has always been very quick to respond, and has never made me feel like a bother. I know I could not be in better hands. I highly recommend him, and personally will not use anyone else. He’s the best!
