My reason for writing all this is for anyone who is frightened, as I was, and unsure of what to do when faced with skin cancer and the hole/scar it will leave, go to a plastic surgeon! Dr A is a thorough, meticulous, honest and gentle doctor. And most important, he is a perfectionist. He is also conservative, which makes me feel safe that he will not go to extremes. What I haven't yet mentioned is that a had my a breast augmentation and my ears pinned back by him in 1998. I am still thrilled with his work. I later had eye surgery to correct the bags under my eyes. Dr A told me the surgery would probably not correct the dark circles, but it DID! And now I have botox and fillers on a regular basis. I am always happy with the results, and often shocked at how he is able to round and soften the shape of my face by how he injects the products. I highly recommend Dr Amunategui, he is a fantastic plastic surgeon in all respects!
Dr. Amunategui’s demeanor is flawless. He is a friendly, personable, surgeon who speaks in a down to earth manner. He went over all the aspects of the surgery in detail, he was honest about what he thought I did and did not need and what to expect. He asked me a lot of questions ...rare these days! He didn't rush me and was genuinely interested in my concerns and achieving the results I was looking for.
I was interested in getting both upper and lower lid work done because my eyes were looking very tired, saggy and puffy and made me look kind of sad. I visited three different doctors before choosing Dr. Amunategui. So you know I put a lot of research into the procedure. Great doctor.
Last month I was diagnosed with skin cancer. The MOHS surgeon asked me if I wanted him to stitch me up, as needed, or if I had a plastic surgeon. I did not hesitate to tell him that I want to go to Dr. Amunategui (who he already knew, and had only good things to say about him). During the consultation with Dr A, he told me to come to his office immediately after my MOHS, and we would determine what needed to be done, depending on the extent of the hole left after the cancer was removed. After the surgery, Dr A, my boyfriend and I spent a long time going over the best way to close the hole (the MOHS left a larger than expected hole in my forehead) and I had the surgery the next morning. It is now 2 weeks later, and I have only a SMALL LINE which will probably disappear soon.
I'm going tell you Dr. Amunategui is a caring individual. I was apprehensive but he took the time to talk to me through. He answered my numerous questions and even made alterative suggestions that were really helpful. This man is fantastic as were the results. I've never met a medical professional or staff that are as helpful as Dr. Amunategui and his people are. Thank you.
Dr. Amunategui is an extremely kind and patient doctor. I went with my mother for a consultation last week. I wasn't certain about plastic surgery, in general, and so, of course, I had a myriad of questions. He took the time to answer each and every one, start to finish, and I never felt pressured nor did I feel as if he was swaying my mother in any direction. He was comforting of our fears, and explained each procedure in a simple and factual manner. We had been to another doctor, prior, who instilled no confidence. Dr. Amunategui was the exact opposite...he was caring and understanding, and I left feeling like my mother was in very good hands! She has an appointment scheduled for next week for her first procedure! (Will write more about her experience afterwards.) With so many positive stories from other patients and after researching his credentials and after hearing so much about his impeccable reputation, I am 100% confident that my mother is in the best hands possible!
I would like to thank Dr. Amunategui for his excellent work in trimming my tummy and fixing my ears. His compassion and understanding of my personal needs is very much appreciated. Gina has been wonderful and very helpful. Your office staff is superb too. I am most grateful for everything you have done. Thank you.
I love coming to this clinic! The receptionist and Dr. Amunategui make you feel so comfortable. For the last 3 years I have been doing botox procedure, always leave well pleased with the procedure.
I recently moved to S. Florida from up north and as to be expected was very nervous trusting my face & body to just any physician, as the sheer numbers in South FL are vast. I first began getting injections & fillers on my face, Dr. Amunategui not only has an exceptionally gentle touch, but he is truly an artist. He is able to create a very youthful look while maintaining a "natural appearance". I receive compliments all the time and never have I been asked if I had "work done". I'm currently having laser hair removal done as well- Dr. Amunategui has also performed breast augmentation, mini tummy tuck, and eye lid surgery on me. I have been consistently pleased and return frequently for "touch ups". I drive over 40 minutes happily- Passing a plastic surgeons office on every other corner. The nurses, staff & overall general feeling this office creates is a wonderful experience.
