a happy patient, January 23, 2012, 8:43 am
Reviewer: sarahcat

I had been thinking about getting breast implants for a while, but I could not find a surgeon I trusted at a price I could afford. In December, 2011 I had to travel to Buenos Aires and I decided to take advantage of the time to finally have the procedure done. Before my trip, I researched top plastic surgeons in Buenos Aires and exchanged e-mail correspondence with several. I finally decided on Dr. Brosto based on my communication with his assistant, Laura. I was impressed with the time she took to answer all my specific questions and her willingness to make personalized arrangements (accommodation,etc.) before I even confirmed that I would be using Dr. Brosto.

In the consult with Dr. Brosto, I was concerned about size since I did not want to go too big. I am petite (5'2" and about 105 lbs, but with wide hips) and had previously thought of going with 250 cc. Dr. Brosto convinced me I would not be happy with the result. Ultimately it was my decision, but based on his professional experience and understanding of the look I wanted to achieve I went with 325 cc, mentor smooth, round, silicone implants, below the muscle, and armpit incisions.

Meanwhile, Laura dealt with all the details (arranging for the blood test to be done where I was staying, taxis, etc.) I had a huge problem accessing cash (I ended up having it sent through Western Union, but I had an issue picking it up which resulted in postponing the surgery several hours), but Laura was very patient and walked me through what I needed to do until we had everything figured out.

Finally, when I got to the hospital I was a little anxious, but the staff was extremely professional and made me feel at ease. The surgery went very quickly and I spent the night at the hospital. I had no complications and not much pain (I never even filled the prescription for painkillers), although it was quite uncomfortable the first few days. On my last day in Buenos Aires (8 days after surgery), Dr. Brosto removed the stitches.

The first few weeks, the implants were still quite swollen and high on my chest and I was worried that I had in fact gone too big. Now, about a month and a half later, they have settled more and I could not be happier with my decision. The size looks completely natural and in harmony with my body, all of my clothes fit a million times better, and I can feel confident wearing a bikini. The people that know can't get over what a good job Dr. Brosto did and plenty that don't know have commented on how good I look lately (but they can never quite put their finger on why).

Based on my experience with Dr. Brosto and his team I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a top plastic surgeon in Buenos Aires.

Hello, I hope that anyone considering using this surgeon will PLEASE read my story beforehand. You have no idea what I've been through and am still going through with a deformed nose. Seriously, please don't make the same mistake I did.
I used Dr. Brosto in April 2009 for rhinoplasty. My boyfriend and I flew to Argentina together to have cosmetic surgeries. When I first met with Dr. Brosto, I thought he was very nice and pleasant, but didn't quite seem to listen to what I was wanting for my nose. I wasn't all that unhappy with my old nose, just wanted the bulbous tip slimmed down. After explaining this to him, I decided I felt comfortable and he acted as if he understood my requests. Well, mine turned into a horror story to be honest. Surgery in the hospital was so scary, when I woke up from surgery, my bandage on my nose needed changing and I was bleeding all over my shirt. I was at the end of a corridor of the hospital where no one was at, and I actually mean no one. No nurses, no other patients, no foot traffic, nothing. There was no light bulb in my room, no lamps, so it was complete dark except for opening the blinds to the street lights. Laura, Dr. Brosto's assistant, was suppose to be at the hospital at 5:30 p.m. to pick me up and drive me back to my hotel. It was 6:30, she still wasn't there. After calling her several times on the cell phone we had rented, she finally sent a friend of hers to pick me up because she said she was unavailable. Yes, this is all true so far. Unfortunately. Well, skipping to the results of my surgery... When Dr. Brosto took the bandage off in the next week, I had a small bump on the left nostril, right at the tip. He said this would go away, it was normal. Laura checked in with me over the next four to five months after I was home. I kept telling her how mishaped my nose was. After five months, I sent her pictures showing how deformed the tip and bridge looked. Well, I never heard from her again after that. So, now what was considered a "garden" procedure by plastic surgeons is now going to cost me roughly $6000 US to correct. I've since visited with 3 different plastic surgeons in the U.S., all of which state that Dr. Brosto basically butchered my nose tip and bridge. It was aggressively overcorrected, to the point of collapse. I have a bossae and pollybeak at the same time! It is horrible. I have contacted Dr. Brosto and Placid Way and they both deny that I was ever a patient. They asked that I pay them in cash, $2900 US, and obviously keep no records. Please, please, please do not have your surgery here. In fact, I would not do it abroad at all, because if something goes wrong, you are stuck in another country with no leverage whatsoever. They can't be held accountable for when things like this happen. I hope this saves at least one person from going through what I did.

great results in Buenos Aires 2007, March 29, 2008, 12:12 pm
Reviewer: Suzzane

He is a wonderful doctor and He is also one of the warmest and most caring doctor I have ever met. He is not a money grubber like Plenitas and will do exactly what he promises (re phone, assistant, transportation, check ups from medical staff etc.) I had a nightmare with Plenitas and Dr. Brosto was there iam happy to meet him and made the right choice.

My surgery was great, breast lift, at the golf clinic. Private room, private nurse. I am very happy overall.
