I would first like to say that I am in no way affiliated with Dr. Calabria, I am just a patient of his, and hope my review will helps others. This man is a master at what he does!!! Here is my story: Prior to going to see Dr. Calabria, in his Rancho Mirage, CA office I had gone to another plastic surgeon in Anaheim, CA in my early twenties who left me with scars in front of my ears from a mini mid facelift. Later I suffered from what is called pixy ears. I went into a deep depression for about a year because I also got an infection from the Anaheim surgeon. After the prior surgery with the Anaheim doctor I later became very self conscious due to my previous bad midface lif in 1998. When ever I went to see an esthetician for a facial they would always comment on the the poor job the prior Anaheim plastic surgeon had done on my face. I could no longer take the rude comments from others, as though I did not know. I also could no longer wear my hair up in a bun and later had lazor treatments to diminish the scars. The lazor treatments helped some but the scars still remained. In my teens I was a model and going to the wrong surgeon cost me my look. So in 2011 I begin my quest for the best plastic surgeon in California. I looked at all of their websites and saw their before and after photos, However one doctor stood out among the others. His name was Dr. Renato Calabria .I was most impressed with Dr. Calabria photos on his site I took an interest in what is called a vertical facelift. It mention that he could remove the signs from a previous bad face lift. I then watched every you tube video and took notes about what others had to say about locating a plastic good plastic surgeon, and what stood out in my mind was a lady on youtube that mention that "If your main concern was about the price of the surgeon or procedure than perhaps you are not ready to get plastic surgey. You see prior to finding Dr. Calabria I was always looking for a deal on plastic surgery. So I decided to let go of the notion that I was going to get a top doctor who offered low cost surgery. I later set up my appointment and spoke with Susan who was very helpful and answered all my questions and concern. Later I met Dr. Calabria the first thing I noticed about him was his level of confidence and how he took the time to listen to what I was seeking. Also there was no charge for a consultation fee. I proceeded to show him a photo of when I was 26 years old prior to having any surgery done on my face. You see I just wanted my same face back and I wanted natural results. Currently I am in my late forties, and Dr. Calabria explained what he could do for me. His exact words were"
"I will have you looking like a young girl again".
sure I thought to myself, but decided to see if he could do as he promised.
My surgery went as planned and there was no facial bruising because he had me on vitamin K, and took extra precautions, for any unnecessary swelling.
OMG I could not believe my eyes when the band aids came off and they took out the draining tubes. I almost wanted to cry because I never expected to be so happy. I was just expecting satisfactory results, but never did I expect what I saw in the mirror. I looked 20 years younger than my age. I was hoping for 10 years, but not to look twenty years younger!!. The swelling went down quickly, and I had my husband take a photo of myself and he uploaded to a site called beautiful people.com. Guess what I was voted in and ranked number 2 for the most beautiful in America, then world wide I ranked number 7. I still have some swelling and every day my husband tells me you look better everyday. I now am planning on having my breast done by Dr. Calabria in Dec. of 2012. If you can afford the best then Dr. Calabria is the guy you want to go to. Thank you Dr. Calabria for changing my life and giving me back my youth. L.B of Riverside, CA
