Ratings for Dr. Gloria De Olarte
Are you tired of looking older than you feel? When you look in the mirror while applying your make-up, you see lines and sagginess that were never there a couple years ago. This is the way I felt! Then I was introduced to doctor Gloria. We had a consultation and I decided to do something for myself. I was so happy with the results, I now feel fresh and very happy when I look at myself in the mirror. I would like to thank doctor Gloria de Olarte for making me feel so comfortable throughout the procedure, she was so gentle and reassuring that I would highly recommend her to everybody I know!
I had restylane nose and lip injections. Within a few days of the procedure, I developed blue lumps in my lips at the injection point and my lips became very hard and lumpy. I have been since informed that this is what is known as the "Tindall Effect" which comes from the doctor still pushing out product while withdrawing the needle, which is the #1 no-no of restylane. My nose looked like a clingon forehead once the swelling subsided. When I called to report this and ask for a revision, I was told that I might have to buy more restylane ($500)in addition to time off work and driving distance (7 hours each way). No patient after care instructions, 1.5 hours late for the appointment, refusal to fix mistakes for free...a VERY emotional and costly mistake.
Dr. De Olarte is an outstanding cosmetic surgen. i recently had a extended tummy tuck and i am extremely happy with the results. Dr. De Olarte and her staff were and have been with me throughout my recovery process. she clearly explained the whole process and her work is neat and very clean. i truly recommend her as any type of plastic surgery and will truly go back for further surgeries.
Dr. de Olarte has been my plastic surgeon since 1993. She was recommended by my Gastroplasty surgeon, Dr. Sheila Clayton. Dr.de Olarte performed an excellent tummy tuck.I was very pleased with the results! She then performed a full face-lift for me - and the results were perfect. About four years ago I got seriously ill, but pulled thru. However, the illness took its toll on me and I required antoher facelift. I was in New York at the time and I selected one that I thought was competent and well trained, but he was not. He made my face look worse than it was before, to the tune of $17,000. dollars. I moved to Arizona. I waited a year, thinking it would get better, but it didn't so I went to Dr. de Olarte again in November of 2011. She and I went over various options, and I had the surgery. I now look like I wanted to before, and love it when people say I am "beautiful". I owe it all to her! I rate her as a 5 and would never go to anyone else!
October 31, 2011 - I find female cosmetic surgeons to be more in-tuned and caring. I needed corrective breast augmentation and Dr. de Olarte knew exactly how to help. I've been to other surgeons before and I won't go back to any other after her.-Michelle
When I decided to seek a board certified plastic surgeon for consultation for a tummy tuck,I met with Dr. de Olarte. Her warmth and experience put me at ease immediately. She answered all of my questions patiently and thorougly. As it turns out, I didn't get a mini tummy tuck because a strict exercise program took care of that, but I have been going to her for the last 3 years for fillers. Her experience in this arena is so good that my sister from Florida waits until she comes to Califiornia to have Dr. de Olarte work her magic. She leaves both of us looking natural and rested. I wouldn't go to anyone else and highly recommend Dr. de Olarte for your journey.
Dr. De olarte was definitely the right doctor for me. I had breast augmentation and was very happy with my results it's been about 8 months now and all I can say is thank you doctor and staff. My sister went to a different doctor for the same procedure and spend a little less but was very unhappy with her results to our surprise after we found out that he was not certified. Just be careful in who you pick for your procedure and make sure they are certified. I am glad I found dr. De olarte she is awesome in what she does. Thank you once again.
Dr de Olarte preformed my Breast Reduction surgery and I am extremely please with the results. Dr de Olarte and staff always answered my questions and addressed any concerns I may have had. The procedure was explained to me in detail and I knew she would be very detailed with the surgery. She called me several times following the surgery and made sure I was doing well. I would recommend Dr de Olarte to anyone interested in a cosmetic procedure.
I've been with Dr. de Olarte since 1997. Back then, I had her do my breast augmentation. My breasts came out beautifully! My friends have all commented on how natural they look! Recently, I had her do my tummy tuck since my tummy didn't bounce back from being pregnant. After looking at the before and after pictures, I could not believe that was my tummy. I am extremely satisfied with all my results. Dr de Olarte really takes the time to explain all procedures carefully. She'll follow up with you as long as you need her. If she doesn't feel you are a good candidate for a specific surgery, she'll be honest and let you know that. She's caring, thorough, and best of all, a perfectionist! I highly recommend her to anyone who is considering cosmetic surgery.
