26/06/14 5 5 5 5 I went to Dr. Porcaro for Testosterone/Hormone Replacement Therapy in the form of injected pellets. I am 49 years old and after a blood test, my levels were very low. I didn't realize how tired and slowed down I had become until after my first treatment. I literally felt like I was 20 years younger. I began running again, exercising more often, and had a much happier outlook on life after beginning the treatment. The procedure was simple and painless. A small incision in my hip, don't get in a pool or tub for a week while it heals, and no more worries for 6 months. I was worried about starting Testosterone therapy because of all of the synthetic warnings and side effects, but the pellets are bio equivalent, so the side effects and warnings are not the same. Worth every penny!  Respond

10/12/12 5 5 5 5 I highly recommend Dr. Porcaro. He is one of the best. I have had two procedures. First I had lazer lipo and was amazed. My second procedure was having a mini tummy tuck and lip to rid me of my "back fat." The before and after pics were amazing! I have used a highly respected Doctor in Brazil for many years for my facial maintenance, botox, filler etc. I am going to Dr. Porcaro tomorrow to have botox and fillers. For me to make this change exhibits my complete trust in Dr. Porcaro's expertise, honesty and true concern are an excellent compliment to his expertise in his field. His staff, Diane, Julianna and Elizabeth make you feel you are his only patient. If you are considering a cosmetic procedure, be sure to see Dr. Porcaro before you make a decision.

20/10/11 4 3 1 1 My girlfriend went a yr ago for tummy tuck she is not happy with the results scar is way to high to cover with underwear or bikini. Was allergic to stitches which caused a small hole in the scar from stitches coming out and he did nothing to fix it. Ruined her belly button does not look normal had a inny now had a huge outty. Looks like when a woman is pregnant how the belly button comes out. We just expected his best work for the money we paid in cash. I wish we would've looked around more before settling so fast. I feel ripped off and she feels more self-conscience then before the surgery needing to wear i shirt to cover up her scar and belly button. We have pics for proof  See Responses

11/08/11 5 3 5 4 I love the staff & they spent alot of time figuring what I wanted. I got laser lipo on several areas. The tummy & flanks showed immediate results but I had to diet to keep it that way. Outer thighs had noticeable improvement, but not much on inner. He originally said no to buttocks fat transfer, which I should have stuck with. I had transfer-it was obvious toward the upper butt/sides, but swollen more on one side. I had a decent size rear to begin, I would've benefited more transferring fat to breast. I'm sill alittle nausceous & feel pain sometimes. It was worse first 3 days. I got 1/2 syringe juvaderm in lips which was obvious for a few days then faded. 1/2 syringe under eye circles made decent difference (partly.bruised) but go with a full for a total fix. They do follow up well & took me in right away upon uneven buttocks look. Says I must wait to see final results.

My chin lipo and lift left me with hanging skin on each side of center of my chin, my scars are large, he left sutures in, and the scars are thick and noticeable especially on my eyes and behind my ears and my chin.
