Westlake Plastic Surgery Reviews
I have known Dr. Robert Caridi for years and believe is the best plastic surgeon in the State of Texas. I live in Houston and drive hours to Dr. Caridi’s office because he is extremely professional, honest and truly cares about making me look my best. His team and staff are simply wonderful. I have taken several girlfriends to him for breast implants, eye lid surgery and brow lift procedures, they all agree and love his work and they look amazing!
I have personally had a brow lift, breast implants and eye lid surgery. I look 15 years younger than my age because of Dr. Caridi’s skilled hands. Last year I won a national beauty contest and when people say wow you look so young and gorgeous.. I say thank you!..I have a really great plastic surgeon in Austin! Thank you Westlake Plastic Surgery and Dr. Caridi for making me look my best! Love your work and your team! I would highly recommend Dr. Caridi and give him 5 stars!!
Dr. Caridi is hands DOWN the best surgeon and person to trust when it comes to surgical procedures. You leave his office looking younger, not operated on. He has a lot of wisdom and insight in comparison to many yahoos out there claiming to be able to make changes which are irreversible.
I 110% support Dr. Caridi and his amazing staff to tend to whatever need you want when going there. I have sent many girlfriends there for breast aug, lip injections and lipo–everyone comes out looking like a rockstar. He is very professional and his staff could not make you feel more at ease.
5 star rate!
I could not be more pleased with Dr. Caridi and his staff. He has performed procedures on two of my friends and they feel the same way. I had breast reconstruction and scar revision surgery. I am thrilled with the results. It has been a long time since I have felt this good about myself. All the exercise and dieting in the world could not have produced the same results.
I lost over 150lbs naturally (no surgery) and as a result had a lot of excess skin. This was a huge source of shame and anxiety for me. The primary area I wanted to address was the excess skin on my arms. I was very nervous, but I did a lot of research on local doctors and finally decided to schedule a consultation with Dr. Caridi.
He and his staff are true professionals and they were extremely empathetic, which immediately put me at ease. They praised my weight loss and showered me with encouragement to continue and enjoy my success. They were also very knowledgeable and answered my many questions thoroughly and patiently. Dr. Caridi and his nurses took the time to really get to know me and assess my needs before making a surgical recommendation. Dr. Caridi gave me several treatment options and really empowered me to take an active role in my procedure/care plan. Based on all of my options and my budget, I chose to have the skin removed from my upper arms (brachioplasty) and I felt confident that Westlake Plastic Surgery was the best office to perform the surgery. Dr. Caridi never tried to up-sell me to get additional procedures done (which I clearly could benefit from), but he did encourage me to reach out to him if I chose to have additional work done in the future.
The day of the surgery I was very nervous, but Dr. Caridi and his nurses once again managed to calm me down through their genuine compassion and close attention to my every need. The surgery went extremely well and I was pleasantly surprised by the ease of the entire process. I had a few questions during my recovery and I was always able to speak to a nurse immediately. One of the nurses (Sara) even gave me her personal cell phone number so I could call her over the weekend, should the need arise. I recovered and healed very quickly and I could not be more pleased with the results. I am not considering having additional skin removed and I would not consider going to any other doctor/facility to perform the procedures. I highly recommend Dr. Caridi and Westlake Plastic Surgery to anyone in need of their fantastic services!
This is tough for me, because something like this is so personal to write.
I had my original set of breast implants done back in 1985, and I thought the doctor did an okay job. But now, fast forward almost 25 years, my implants had become SO hard and unyielding! I would hug people, and I could feel them HARD into my chest, but the furthest thing from my mind was that others could feel the hardness, too. Well, when my daughter came to me one day and said, “Mommy, my friends all love you, but they asked me the other day: How come when your mom hugs me, her BOOBS are so hard?!” As you can imagine, I was mortified!
After doing an exhaustive internet search, I found Dr. Caridi. From what I read, it seemed like he was the best in town, so I made an appointment. Well, I can tell you that I liked him from the moment I met him, and he made me feel SO at ease…especially in a situation that could otherwise have been so uncomfortable. I found out in that initial session that implants (silicon ones, anyway) really only last about 10-15 years! So, I had gone WELL beyond their half life, and needed replacements. We scheduled it there and then, and my case was a REALLY tough one. It turns out that he had to work extra hard to get my old implants out, and put in new, beautiful ones! The pain was minimal, I was up/around in days (went to a volleyball tournament 2 days later), and he did a BEAUTIFUL job. I would recommend Dr. Caridi to ANYONE seeking plastic surgery. I love you, Dr. Bob!
I love Dr. Caridi and the team at Westlake Plastic Surgery!!! They are truly fantastic! I had gone to 3 other doctors before Dr. Caridi- and I knew from the moment I walked in for my consult, that I had found my surgeon. The Westlake Plastic Surgery team is so wonderful, kind, and professional.
I had my BAR (breast reduction + lift+ implant), rhinoplasty, chin implant, and minor neck lift surgery in October of 2013. Everything went so smoothly and my results are amazing!!! Dr. Caridi and his team took such great care of me throughout the entire process. His nurse gave me her personal cell phone number so I could contact her 24/7 with any questions or concerns. He is a perfectionist and will always be honest with you instead of feeding you what you want to hear. I recommend Dr. Caridi to all my family and friends. My mom and two friends have already gone in to see him and my sister is going in next week.
In regards to some of the other reviews, you have to come prepared to your consult with exactly what you want, your concerns, and every question you need answered. You need to be vocal the entire time. My consult with Dr. Caridi and his nurses was well over an hour and I had no doubt what so ever that I was in good hands. He gave me exactly what I wanted and asked for! He is the best surgeon in Austin!
I have not written a review before but felt compelled to after my last visit to Dr. Caridi. I first became a customer over a decade ago. I came in to get the saddle bags removed from my upper thighs. I was immediately comfortable with Dr. Caridi and his entire staff. It dint take long to realize this group is at the top of their field. You may not know but most private practice plastic surgeons do not invest in top notch seasoned RN’s, in house seasoned anesthesiologist and in house surgical suite. That is a huge up front expense that has significant value to the customer. All of this equates to high quality service and at a reduced expense since you are not involving outside anesthesiologist and surgical facilities – not to mention reduced time and travel.
My liposuction procedure went amazing. I have kept the results for over a decade. My recovery was amazingly fast. I had the surgery on a Friday, was at work on Monday and in Universal Studios in Florida the following Friday. I’m not discounting that I didn’t have bruising to hide and I did ride in a wheel chair some to avoid swelling – but over all I felt great. Its my opinion that my quick recovery (the day off and days to follow) was accredited to precise surgery and dosage of anesthesia.
I came back in 2010 to get rhinoplasty – something I had wanted since I was a teenager. I was very concerned about not changing my core look. I wanted to soften my face by removing the bump and thinning the bridge of my nose. Well Dr. Caridi did exactly that. You know you’ve had great work when people do not know what you’ve done but that you just look “fresher/better/different”. Again, I had a great recovery just as I did with the lipo procedure. Procedure was done on a Friday – back at work on Monday.
And here we are to present. I called to see about getting my ear lobes fixed. I have saggy ear piercing holes from years of wearing large earrings. I thought for sure I would have to wait for weeks to get in. Not the case at all. Again when I returned it was as if I never left – they all remembered me and details of my past visits. I had a great time visiting with everyone and Dr. Caridi got me fixed up in approx 15 minutes. It was a great feeling to know that I was as welcomed and attended to with this very minor procedure as I was with the previous two significant procedures.
On a side bar to the dissatisfied ladies – first I want to say that I respect that everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I would suggest to anyone considering a procedure to do a lot of research on your own both online and seek out friends, friends of friends or family that have had that procedure to get more input. Do not expect a reputable doctor to tell you what to do. . You should come with a list of questions and concerns to address. If you are completely uninformed then say so…..if you want more of the doctors time – say so. In my opinion, If you come informed, this truly is your interview to lead more than his. His interview is to make sure you are physically able to have the surgery, ensure that your requests are “emotionally balanced” and to answer your questions or concerns. Personally I can state that Dr. Caridi never “suggested” that I do anything. He gave his input on my game plan – from a medical standpoint and from experience with other clients with my same obstacles and concerns. I personally cant envision Dr. Caridi saying he “can’t” do anything. “Can’t just doesn’t seem to be in his vocabulary….maybe “won’t – and due to a medical or ” emotional” reason associated with the patient.
In regards to using seasoned RNs to prep and advise….I don’t know how that is a bad thing. Again that office strength provides you a high end service at a lower cost. It also allows him to keep the flow of the office in tact. I have NEVER had to sit and wait long for my appointment – how many doctors can make that claim? Using a RN is no different than utilizing a PA on a gyno visit or a paralegal with your attorney. Where I want the doctors expertise, time and focus is in the surgery room. I am certain these ladies have seen everything Dr. Caridi has (he always has one at his side) and I think it says a lot that he has the confidence in his staff to allow their input and opinion. The beauty of that office strength is you have a male doctor and female RNs all evaluating your situation and possibly giving a different viewpoint or input to consider – that is a 360 evaluation!
Dr. Caridi is a perfectionist and his staff is seasoned to support that perfection. He and his staff truly want you to be satisfied. The added benefit is the bedside manner you get from each and every employee and of course Dr. Caridi
Sincerest thanks to all at Westlake Plastic Surgery
I went for my consultation for the B.A.R procedure back in December of 2012. After doing research on many surgeons in the area and meeting with Lacy and Dr. Caridi, I knew that this would be the place for my surgery.
The staff here is very knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions. I have wanted this procedure done for a long time but there was never anyone that combined the augmentation and reduction into one surgery. I wanted to keep my breast the same size and have them lifted. I am extremely happy with my results.
When I tell people that I have had this procedure done they say they couldn’t tell that I have “fake boobs.” Exactly what I was looking for 😉 Thank you Westlake Plastic Surgery.
Dr. Caridi and this establishment have been a class act since I first step foot in the business. I went there and received a gynecomastia procedure which I am very satisfied with. Everything looked good.
I am writing this review because Dr. Caridi made me feel very comfortable, and actually took the time to hear my concerns. Plus, he is friendly and pretty cool, and is really good at what he does. His assistants are great, and overall I had a great experience, despite any concerns I may have entered with. I would definitely recommend him.
Dr. Caridi and the Westlake Plastic Surgery Center were great for me.
I went there for a gynecomastia procedure and I am very pleased with the results. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I am writing this review because Dr. Caridi actually took the time to hear my concerns and reassure me, and he’s really good at what he does. The procedure went very smoothly, and months later I am still loving it.
I highly recommend Dr. Caridi and Westlake Plastic Surgery. Thanks.
It has been a year since I had my liposuction procedure. I went back for my one year post-op and am extremely happy with the end result. I have continued to lose weight and am now going back for additional liposuction and a mini-facelift this summer. The office staff and Dr. Caridi are friendly and helpful. They sent me my before and after pictures and everyone is impressed! I have been in several times for Botox and love the way my eyes look! Their prices are very reasonable.
Let me start off by stating his office staff, and I mean EVERY single person I came into contact with was genuine, professional, friendly, and went over and above to make me feel comfortable and answer any and all questions. Dr. Caridi himself came highly recommended from a personal friend who had a few procedures done a year ago. Dr. Caridi was charismatic, professional, friendly, beyond knowledgeable, listened to my wants and helped me make the best decision for my breast augmentation. If you don’t know a lot about his past he is board certified and gets the top pick of implants from Sientra. They only sell to board certified surgeons. He is very honest and real with his explanation of results. If you want great results, the patient must put in the “homework” and be dedicated to maintaining. This is an investment and you should listen to your surgeon – he knows best!
His surgery center in his office is state of the art and impeccably clean and very inviting. Again, his staff is amazing. They all made me feel so at ease and are some of the nicest people I have ever had the privilege to work with. Post surgery pain was so very minimal. I was surprised at how gentle and careful he must have been because there was no bleeding and mainly just sore. I am beyond happy with my results and wish I had done this years ago. If you are looking for a surgeon full of talent, integrity, and overall knowledge…. Dr. Caridi is you surgeon look no further. He is a true artist.
Thank you so very much Dr. Caridi and your whole office staff for making my experience incredible.
The results of my son’s gynecomastia surgery were AMAZING!!!!!!! From the moment we stepped into the office his front office staff and nurses were so attentive.
Exactly what we needed to calm our nerves. I needed more calming than my son, as a physician myself I have performed and witnessed countless surgeries. I knew all to well of the risk and benefits of surgery. My first job as his mother who happened to be a surgeon was to look for a surgeon that I believed was well experienced in this procedure. Dr. Caridi met ALL my qualifications. At the completion of surgery I was in amazement of the results which now two months out, are so natural in appearance you would not even know he had the procedure done. This was not only a great surgical outcome in my opinion but a work of art. My son’s confidence in his appearance is over the top.
If you or someone you know is in need of this procedure I would highly recommend Dr. Caridi and his exceptional staff, nurses and Anesthesiologist, they are truly an amazing team!!!!!!!
Had a lower facelift this year at age 63 and could not be happier. (Wish I had done it sooner) I am an RN and very picky. They were all very professional and experienced. Highly recommend.
I visited Westlake Plastic Surgery recently to have some simple work done and really enjoyed myself. The nurses were super helpful and made me comfortable, and Dr. Caridi was extremely knowledgeable and also surprisingly delicate with my situation. Not only did he have suggestions, he actually suggested I not have on procedure because of some negative effects it could have.
I trust and recommend him wholeheartedly and suggest you do the same!
I had opportunity last week to sit down with Dr. Caridi and discuss his practice. It’s clear from after only five minutes sitting with Dr. Caridi to understand his passion about his business.
I was impressed with what Dr. Caridi has been able to do with his YouTube videos on Gynecomastia. He’s bull build a worldwide following. It just shows you the power of YouTube marketing. When you create videos with content that strikes a nerve, people find it, share it, and really respond.
I’m looking forward to working with Dr. Caridi and his team.
Working with Dr. Caridi on his Gynecomastia new site and it is going to be a game changer. The Austin Gynecomastia Center is the central hub for all males who are looking for help.
I recently went in to explore options for a procedure I’ve been considering and loved my experience here. I felt very comfortable and the staff was extremely welcoming. Dr. Caridi was very knowledgeable and helped me further understand my option. Highly recommend!
Excellent planning and patient education for lower blepharoplasty procedure. Excellent patient care, before, during and after procedure. GREAT results. Kudos.
Dr. B is amazing, I came in for my Botox and she took off the little tiny bump (Melia) that was on my eye. I had 2 and they drove me nuts. It was completely painless and now The bumps are gone. Yay!
I can’t thank this practice and the staff enough for everything they have done for us. The employees are incredible and I couldn’t imagine a better place to take care of me. Everyone was so friendly and knowledgeable about every aspect of the surgery and trust me I had multiple questions. You can tell why this practice is so reputable. They are simply the best.
Dr Caridi performed male breast reduction a few days ago on my boyfriend and the results already look amazing. His staff was very helpful, friendly comforting and accommodating basically everything we hoped for ( they also make amazing cappuccinos might I add). My boyfriend had many concerns and Dr. Caridi answered all his questions and was very professional and supportive.
They have a great location there that is discreet and comfortable, along with us being from out of town, Austin is a beautiful area which made out trip that much better. I would definitely recommend him considering how good they made both of us feel ( I didn’t even have surgery ) along with being so supportive with me while I was waiting and giving great care instructions with follow ups. I would highly recommend Dr Caridi and his staff they are awesome definitely worth the trip from Canada
Just got my gynecomastia surgery done with Dr. Caridi. The results are phenomenal and he is so talented. He reshaped my chest. I can’t say enough.
Me and my girlfriend travelled from Toronto to Austin and I was hesitant in the beginning. However, after I had met him, I knew that I made the right decision, he is a pro . He knows what he is doing, knows how to give you the best results, and in addition, he makes you feel that you are in safe hands and very comfortable. I recommend him to anyone and your trip will worth it.
Thanks Dr Caridi
I highly recommend Dr Caridi and his well-trained staff at Westlake Plastic Surgey. In October 2014, I had a full face and neck lift and upper and lower blepharoplasty. I am completely satisfied with the results. I look great if I do say so myself. I did my homework – learned as much as I could about the procedures and visited two other doctors before choosing Dr Caridi. He and his staff answered all of my questions and honestly addressed all of my concerns (I had many). Dr. Boysen, the anesthesiologist, listened well to my concerns about general anesthetic. All went beautifully without a hitch.
I especially like the fact that Westlake Plastic Surgery has its own surgical center, so no need to have to walk down sidewalks or parking ramps post surgery – much more privacy with less chance for cross contamination as in a hospital setting. You must go in healthy, follow ALL instructions and have realistic expectations. Don’t let Dr Caridi’s gregarious nature fool you. He is skilled and an artist true to his profession.
Westlake Plastic Surgery is genuinely amazing. Dr. Caridi is hands down the most genuine doctor I have ever met, and an extremely skilled surgeon at that. After dealing with Gynecomastia (a condition where a males breast tissue grows larger than normal due to hormone imbalance) for years, I finally started doing the research on getting the surgery done to remove the breast glands behind my nipples that slowly grew larger and more uncomfortable over time.
I made the decision to consult with Dr. Caridi after seeing the amazing results of many of his patients, and watching his videos on YouTube of his procedures. After meeting with Dr. Caridi and his amazing staff, I knew I was in the best hands. When it comes to cosmetic surgery, this is THE guy to go to. I am now almost a month out of surgery, and I look and feel better than I can ever remember. Dr. Caridi removed every last bit of tissue from behind my nipples, and resculpted my chest and lower belly by doing liposuction in the areas that are tough to burn fat at. I am far from over weight, but wanted to look nice and tight and that is exactly what he gave me. Although it has only been a month, you can hardly tell I even had surgery. His incisions have healed very well just as he promised.
If you are looking for a top notch cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Caridi at Westlake Plastic Surgery is where you need to go. If Yelp had 100 stars, they would get every one of them!
Dr Caridi, within the span of a month, completely changed my life. I went in with the very overwhelming problem of gynecomastia and was instantly met with welcome and relief. I know his practice isn’t limited to this procedure but he is without a doubt an expert in the field of gyno.
My procedure was only 3 weeks ago and my body, specifically my chest, looks completely different and much more masculine. He’s been extremely friendly the whole way through and I beg anyone with my prior issue to not spend a single day more dealing with it! Your emotional well being is worth all the money in the world and you can EASILY finance this procedure and any plastic surgery procedure with things like Care Credit. I’m finally free of gyno thanks to Dr Caridi.
I haven’t been happier in my 20 years of living! Dr.Cardi is the way to go, he completely changed my life with gyno surgery. Before him I wouldn’t go swimming much, wouldn’t buy certain shirts and couldn’t show off my body that I worked out for every day for 2 years straight for and he fixed all that in 1 month. Not only is he an awesome person with a friendly personality, everyone employed there is friendly also, from the front desk worker, to the nurses, to the anesthesiologist.
It’s been 2 weeks since and I couldn’t be happier. I’m still mentally disturbed by it from living with it for 6 years and thought I still had problems after and he offered to see me again the 15th day after and fix my problems.
I visited about 5 different offices for quotes and just to get to know the doctor and couldn’t be happier with my decision to go with Dr.Cardi. If you are looking to change your life with gyno surgery, he’s the man for your problems.
I dwelled on the having gyno surgery for a while and had two consultations before I came across Dr. Caridi videos on YouTube. What guided me towards Dr. Caridi was the informative videos he posted online and his knowledge on the subject matter. I then had the consultation via Skype and this confirmed that I was in great hands. Afterwards, I was off to his office in Austin for the surgery. The staff was exceedingly pleasant and professional from the time of my enquiry all the way to my post-op care. His office and facility is very clean, well kept, welcoming, classy and particularly the décor was exceptional.
The procedure itself was a breeze, the swelling has subsided, the incisions are healing, I am still a bit sore but by and large I am happy with my results.
Thanks Dr. Caridi and to your staff at Westlake Plastic Surgery.
I recently had my gynecomastia removed by Dr. Caridi and I couldn’t be happier with the results! I first learned about Dr Caridi through his YouTube videos which are a wealth of information. I actually flew in from from Chicago to do the surgery after doing an online consultation because I knew he has the knowledge and experience to give me the best results. I flew back home the day after gynecomastia surgery without any problems.
I would highly recommend Dr Caridi! His staff also did a great job throughout the entire procedure. I’m glad I decided to do the surgery with him and have no regrets.
Dr. Caridi is a down-to-earth surgeon who gave me back the confidence with my body that I had been missing for quite some time. My gynecomastia caused me to have poor posture to hide my breasts, and reluctance to take off my shirt, which should be no problem for a 23 yr/old man.
From the first consultation to the day of surgery I felt I was genuinely cared for by Dr. Caridi and his staff. My scars are virtually unseen and my chest looks sculpted and firm like it naturally should. I would highly recommend Westlake Plastic Surgery to anyone looking for comfort with their body image.
Dr. C and the staff at Westlake Plastic Surgery Austin Gynecomastia Center are AWESOME. I had Gynecomastia excision with liposuction 17 days ago on June 27 and I can say I am more than pleased with the results. Dr. Caridi is an EXPERT in this procedure and highly recommend him. I’m fighting back a 5000 word review as I am fully overjoyed with the work Dr. C and his staff did as well as the entire experience and hospitality of choosing AGC. Much thanks to Dr. C and his staff for helping me get on with my life!
I had my gynecomastia surgery done 1 week Ago at Dr. Caridi’s office his entire staff was extremely pleasant and nice. I would highly recommend this office for anyone looking to get great cosmetic work and a overall great experience. The office itself was very clean as well as the operating room the nurses are very engaged with the patient explaining the entire process and what to expect in the next couple of weeks leading to recovery.
Thanks Dr. Caridi !!! Your staff is awesome !!!!
It’s been almost a year since I got my breast augmentation surgery from Dr. Caridi. I’ve been thinking for months about writing this review and how to put into words how truly grateful I am to him and his ENTIRE staff. Honestly, I’ve decided there just aren’t words in the dictionary to describe how happy this surgery has made me and how I feel more like myself then I did before the surgery. I’m a single Mom and a surgery like this was not one I came to lightly. Let’s be honest, it’s a lot of money and it was just a huge decision.
Dr. Caridi was referred to me by a friend and my friend said, if you are going to have this done, you HAVE to go to the best in Austin. I definitely did my research and scheduled my consultation to see if it was going to be right for me. I came in with my list of questions/concerns and felt so at ease with the process from the very beginning. Dr. Caridi listened and was very honest, which I fully appreciated. After the consultation, I knew it was something I wanted to do and wanted to be done right the first time.
The surgery went so well and since I followed the post-op instructions, my recovery time was a breeze. After my surgery, there were 2 different occasions where I panicked and got nervous about everything healing properly. I called Dr. Caridi’s office and expressed my concerns to the staff and they let me come in to take a look and confirm that everything was fine and I was just being a spaz. Peace of mind means so much to me and they were so gracious to have me come in and check me out and listen to my concerns. Again, I just cannot express my gratitude enough to Dr. Caridi, his anesthesiologist, and EVERY person I met at his facility. Be prepared, there might be a waiting list to be seen, but if you think about it, it makes sense. Do you really want to have your surgery done at a place that can see you on the day you call? I did not.
I honestly do not understand the negative reviews, as my experience could not have been a more positive one from start to finish.
Thank you Dr. Caridi and Staff for taking such great care of me. I would recommend Westlake Plastic Surgery and their services as top notch. They are the best in the business.
After reading some of these reviews, I felt that I needed to write about my experience with WPS…it was great the first time I went for my breast augmentation and I’m now returning to Dr. C for my exchange of implants. I would not trust anyone else to do this procedure. He is the best this city has to offer hands down. He listened to what I had to say about wanting to look natural and that is exactly what I got. The office staff and nurses are wonderful and caring, as well. I did my research the first time around–I’m an attorney–and found Dr. C’s qualifications and experience top notch. There is no way I would go to anyone else for this next surgery. Thanks Dr C, Dr B and all the great staff at WPS!
I went into Westlake Plastic Surgery to get my breast implants replaced with smaller sized implants and Dr Caridi and his staff were awesome. Very friendly and professional. I’m super happy with my results and would recommend Dr Caridi to anyone looking for a great plastic surgeon who can deliver amazing results.
I had my surgery seven weeks ago with Dr Caridi. I’m very grateful to him and all his staff. I was on vacation when I noticed my old breast implants where shrinking. I got my first implants in Venezuela where I’m from. I was out the country so, I was very nervous. I did a search about what type of surgery I will need if my implants were leaking. I read that I need a plastic surgery capable to do an Explantation surgery and Dr Caridi has experience doing that type of surgery. I got lucky that Dr Caridi has a consultation online. I sent my pictures and my concerns by email. It was Sunday morning when I wrote to him and he answered me Sunday night. I was very impress with him and relieved that I would see him as soon as I got home. On Monday, I got another email from his office with the all the information for the surgery, price and patient’s form. I got back in Austin and Cherri founded an small window in Dr Caridi’s schedule to see me. He was booked the whole month of August. Thank you very much Cherri!!
Dr Caridi was very warm and professional when I met him. He wanted to know about the terrible situation in my Country. He made feel that he really cares about his patients. After he examined me, he told that one of my implants got out of place. I was able to feel it in my armpits. He concluded that a MRI wasn’t necessary and that I didn’t need an explanation. I was very happy about that. The price was lower because, I needed only to replace my old implants. Thanks to the good news, I got a mini facelift at the same time!!
Maria and Lacy were my nurses. They are awesome. They took care of me. They explained everything. Maria checked on me by phone and by text. They both were wonderful. I’m very pleased with all the staff. Many thanks for all your attentions and professional services. They all are like a big family.
Now the most important part, my results after my surgery. I’m extremely happy with my results and final look. I love my new implants and I look younger. Dr Caridi made my breasts look incredible. I’m very happy I went from 280 cc to 255 cc. I found an excellent surgeon. I will be coming back for future things down the road. He has the knowledgeable and is very honest. I’m so happy I chose him as my plastic surgeon.
I needed to have my breast implants replaced due to severe pocket displacement and asymmetry. I chose Dr. Caridi after doing a lot of research. Replacing the implants was not the tricky part, it was closing off the old pockets and adjusting for the new ones. Not to mention the old scar tissue and his having to use and place donor tissue appropriately. I am currently 7 weeks post surgery and I am very pleased with them. They look better and feel better than I expected. My breasts are very, very nice thanks to this man and his wonderful staff!!
I had a gynecomastia surgery done about 6 weeks ago, and I’m extremely satisfied with my decision. I had lost 40lbs prior to this surgery and it had changed very little about my problem, so it was time to do something about it. Dr. Caridi and his staff have been nothing but friendly and knowledgeable each time I’ve been in the office. The surgery went very well and so has the recovery. They even called to check on me a few times afterwards. What had been done didn’t really hit me until about a month after my surgery when I first started working out again – being able to run without a giant chunk of hate myself on my chest felt amazing and I continue to feel better about myself daily.
If you’re reading this and considering a gynecomastia procedure, I highly recommend scheduling a consultation.
Dr. Caridi is more than a plastic surgeon – he is an artist. Dr. Caridi makes sure that you leave looking your best self. I had liposuction and an eye lift, and when my friend saw the results, said “you look like you just took a ten-year nap!”
I have been going to see Dr. Caridi since he practiced in Chicago and I have followed him to Austin, TX. Plastic surgery is personal and emotional as well as physical and Dr. Caridi takes care of you on all levels. His staff is as dedicated as he is to getting perfect results – you emerge your very best “you”. You will thank yourself (and me) when you book your visit to Westlake Plastic Surgery.
From California, I set my gynecomastia surgery up months in advance to make this trip and I was very nervous/excited about it hoping everything would go well and I was amazed how great and wonderful everyone was.
Everything went exactly as planned with no problems or miscommunication. I arrived and was greeted by Maria and was taken care of from start to finish. Dr Caridi did in amazing job with the treatment of my upper body with no pain and he is very knowledgeable in the experience of his profession. I was always back and forth about doing this but after doing this surgery with Dr Caridi and Maria I am so glad I went through with it with no pain and the only thing I wish I could of kept was that robe that was comfortable 🙂
I recently had the best experience I have EVER had with a plastic surgeon ..Dr Caridi…
After seeing a close friend after her facelift results I decided to have a consult with Dr Caridi to have my breast implants removed (which had been a huge issue for so many years). I was initially greeted by his staff who were all very kind and professional and escorted to the exam room. Dr Caridi came in to meet and spent time really inquiring as to what was my concerns were and then we discussed options. (let me say that I previously had consultations regarding the issue with other surgeons who basically didn’t really give me options and their solution was always a lot more invasive surgery and a lot more $$$).
Dr Caridi was very honest and forthcoming which I really appreciated. The option he suggested was minimal invasion and minimal cost. Surgery was done and I am ecstatic with my results and could not be happier. I wish I had done it sooner as I feel so much better and am so happy with the results.
I also went back to discuss a tummy tuck and once again he was very honest and told me I did need to lose weight (which I knew was true) because even if he did the surgery I might not be satisfied …I truly appreciate his candor and quite frankly knew he was right!!!!!
In reading the review from Jolene I can honestly say I would rather have someone be upfront and frank with me and not take my money knowing the results would be less than what I wanted ….If you want great results sometimes you have to do a little work as well as it is a partnership for a common goal….
I will definitely be going back for a few other things I want to do. I’m excited that Dr Caridi will be doing my sisters facelift and I know she is in great hands with Dr Caridi and his wonderful staff.
Very happy with the results and they met my expectations – they came highly recommend. Westlake Plastic Surgery is consistent and professional – I would say a great office to consider for any cosmetic procedure you may be considering. Not only is WPS highly skilled at what they do but the nurses are really nice on top of that! I was really impressed with my experience from the website/social media all the way to the final procedure.
I’ll be referring everyone I know to this staff. Thanks again Dr. Caridi!
I have been to several plastic surgeons, here in Austin and in Los Angeles. Dr. Caridi is kind, honest, fun to talk to, down to earth and a professional surgeon with a fantastic staff.
I was extremely happy with my results and will highly recommend him. For once I have a doctor with a nice bedside manner and willingness to meet your needs to feel better about yourself. He’s a great listener and cares about his patients. I highly encourage you to have a consult with him especially if you want to be incredibly pleased with your results.
I read the reviews before making my appointment and decided to ask around because I live by his office. Everyone I asked said that this doctor was the best and that he is honest and to be prepared. I felt that’s exactly what I wanted a straight shooter.
My husband and I went together. He did tell my husband to lose 15 pounds and to come back, he wanted liposuction. And I wanted a breast augmentation. He was very clear on what size he felt would be proportionate to my body, it made sense. I went in thinking I want them big because I have nothing. I’m curvy I’m 5’8 and 165 pounds. He said that if I went to large it could make me appear larger, oh heck no. I trusted this doctor, he does this everyday and I researched him. He’s board certified. I booked my surgery.
The anesthesia doctor was so nice she is also board certified and does the Botox and fillers too, by the time I booked my surgery my husband lost weight and was so thankful for that recommendation his diet was less expensive than lipo and he was proud of himself. My breast, OMG they are perfect. I go back in a few months to get pictures done. I have already been back to see Dr. B for Botox between my eyebrows only. That was only 200$!
This office is not a corporate type of place. They are a great team. I look forward to my Botox appointments to see the staff since my surgery is done. Thank you Dr. Caridi and Dr. B.
Amazing! The entire staff are so welcoming and friendly. Dr. Caridi performed my surgery about 3 weeks ago and I am so happy with the results!
If there was an option for 6 stars I would choose it. My experience at Westlake Plastic Surgery with Dr Caridi was absolutely wonderful. the facility was beautiful and clean, the staff were pleasant and very helpful, and Dr Caridi was super personable and an incredible surgeon. It’s rare to have such a full circle positive experience in healthcare these days, and it is very refreshing to have found a practice which offers the finest level of care, consideration, and quality of work. I will recommend Westlake Plastic Surgery to friends and family with confidence.
Words cannot express my appreciation for having Dr. Caridi as my surgeon along with his great staff. After a lifetime of insecurities over my gynecomastia and trying everything to get rid of it. I realized surgery was my only option. Dr. Caridi always made what was a touchy subject for me very comfortable and I felt I wasn’t just another patient or “number”.
With years of research and consultations with other doctors under my belt I found his professionalism and knowledge second to none. His expertise on gynecomastia and his caring nature to make a change in ones life, and to take it personal to do so made him the perfect fit for me. To sum things up, if you are looking for a great caring doctor who does what ever it takes to exceed your expectations Dr. Caridi is for you no matter what color, creed or gender.
Dr Caridi was fantastic!! I went in not knowing if or what could be done for me and he gave me my life back. He didn’t sugar coat anything like most doctors will do and told me exactly what was gonna happen and how it was going to affect my left! He was spot on!
I can’t say enough about him! Would recommend him to anyone and have!! He is great!! If you want a dr that will give it to you straight and not beat around the bush and sugar coat it, Dr Caridi is who you need to see!
Several friends told me Dr. Caridi was the best plastic surgeon in Austin, TX. I also loved his personality, caring nature and openness. He spent a lot of time with me answering questions and getting to know me. His staff is also top notch and the best ladies in the world! It took a couple of weeks to get my initial consult and they got me scheduled immediately for my breast implant removal surgery. Best level of service I’ve ever had from a medical provider. He also has a great Anesthesiologist on his staff who also spent time with me answering questions.
Yesterday, I underwent the two hour liposuction procedure. The doctor gave me a big hug and told me everything was going to go great.
My doctor is excellent but I can’t compare because I’ve had only him. I feel safe but I’m always scared of surgery. I love the results but I just get so nervous thinking about the whole cutting, blood and stuff like that.
The doctor and office staff were incredible. They didn’t try to talk me out of getting a breast implant removal, just gave me my options and told me that if I didn’t like the results they could fix it. I would recommend them to anyone.
Dr. Caridi loves women…all women…all sizes, shapes, ages, etc…he’s an expert in his field and , while very direct, he does take the time to listen and then make suggestions. His entire staff…Dr. Boysen, Becky, Lacy, Michelle…wonderful!
Let me start off by stating his office staff, and I mean EVERY single person I came into contact with was genuine, professional, friendly, and went over and above to make me feel comfortable and answer any and all questions. Dr. Caridi himself came highly recommended from a personal friend who had a few procedures done a year ago. Dr. Caridi was charismatic, professional, friendly, beyond knowledgeable, listened to my wants and helped me make the best decision for my breast augmentation.
If you don’t know a lot about his past he is board certified and gets the top pick of implants from Sientra. They only sell to board certified surgeons. He is very honest and real with his explanation of results. If you want great results, the patient must put in the “homework” and be dedicated to maintaining. This is an investment and you should listen to your surgeon – he knows best! His surgery center in his office is state of the art and impeccably clean and very inviting. Again, his staff is amazing. They all made me feel so at ease and are some of the nicest people I have ever had the privilege to work with.
Post surgery pain was so very minimal. I was surprised at how gentle and careful he must have been b/c there was no bleeding and mainly just sore. I am beyond happy with my results and wish I had done this years ago. If you are looking for a surgeon full of talent, integrity, and overall knowledge…. Dr. Caridi is you surgeon look no further. He is a true artist. Thank you so very much Dr. Caridi and your whole office staff for making my experience incredible.
I honestly went there intimidated before I met my Dr. or his staff. The staff was truly friendly and easy going and made me feel very comfortable (I am the nerves type outside of my box). I was also very comfortable having Dr. Caridi fill me in on all the helpful information getting a breast augmentation and he has great bedside manners as well. He deserves a 5!
I got online and did a consultation request for both my referral and my self choice, they both responded the next day and happened to only have an opening on the 21 and 22nd, so I scheduled one for the 21st and one for the 22nd. I told my mom so she could watch my kids and my husband so he could come with me. (I should note that he does not think I need the BA, but he supports me because he has seen me cry and get frustrated at my post breastfeeding boobies and he wants me happy above all else.)
So, day 1, I meet with my referral, I love his office, it’s big and clinical and his staff is professional, he sizes me by asking what I have researched, start there, and going up and down until I am happy. I ended up with exactly what I thought I would. SWEET! I leave happy. Day 2, I go to my own pick, a totally different aesthetic of the office, but I still LOVE it, it’s comfortable, and relaxing, and not intimidating AT ALL. His staff is AMAZINGLY sweet and silly (read: human) (they had a little impromptu 80s dance party in their break room we happened to stumble upon.) His nurse sized me before I met him. The sizing process was totally different, she simply asked if I wanted subtle, naturally large, or “go big or go home.” Then she left the room, grabbed a few size options and returned with a bra and tank top for me to put on. She wouldn’t tell me what size or profile I was trying on, just asked “bigger, smaller, higher or lower.” (Like when you get your eye exam and that big machine is put in front of you, “A or B, 1 or 2, B or C, better or worse?”) So, I finally say, “THIS, This is it!” She tells me the size and it is EXACTLY what I picked the day before and what I had expected the whole time! GO ME!!
At that point, she called the Doctor in and he is amazing, he jokes with my husband and I, he listens to and asks us about our kids and my wishes, he shares personal stories about his family and it is just obvious that he loves to help people and loves his family, including 2 grown daughters (he knows women). I already knew that he had the type of results I was looking for, and now I knew his office, staff, and practices were right up my alley. All together, the confidence of knowing that I blindly chose my size makes me know that I am picking the right one for me. This, along with the comfort I felt with his office, staff, location, price, and experience made me confident enough to book my surgery right then and there. So, the day before Thanksgiving 2016, it is finally time for mama to treat herself!!
Dr. Caridi and his staff are the best. When I went in for a consultation, I knew that he knew exactly what I needed, answered all of my questions, and made me feel so comfortable. Day of surgery was a breeze, his staff treated me so well, and now one year out of surgery, I couldn’t be happier with my results. Simply the best!
Literally the best experience with a physician and office staff I’ve ever had! Dr. Caridi is not only professional and a very skilled and accomplished surgeon, but is also honest and very respectful! He takes the time to listen to your concerns! The office staff (nurses, front desk, ect.) are also outstanding, very professional and compassionate!
My results were more than I could have ever imagined! I am very VERY happy with my results and would highly recommended Dr. Caridi and Westlake Plastic Surgery!!
Dr. Caridi an amazing doctor. Very straightforward and honest. I find that very important to the doctor. I got amazing results. An incredible staff; it makes you feel so comfortable and he has awesome bedside manner. I would definitely go back to him and would recommend anybody to see him.
Top notch place to go for gynecomastia surgery, breast augmentation and facial plastic surgery. They just redid the place and the interior looks like a modern hip hotel. Dig the nice staff. Dr. Caridi tells it like it is, which is rare in a plastic surgeon. Plus he’s got more experience than anyone in Austin.
Amazing! The only negative thing I can say about Dr. Caridi and Westlake Plastic Surgery is that I did not find him soon enough! He is an excellent surgeon and person.
Dr. Caridi is straight to the point and honest about your procedure, which is a great quality to have in a surgeon. He is very passionate about his work so he will do whatever is needed to give you the absolute best result.
Men, don’t be shy or embarrassed to go see Dr. Caridi and AGC. It is a life changing experience.
Dr. Caridi is great. I second what everyone else has said below. He’s honest, professional, great at his job, and really instills confidence in you as a patient. His staff is very pleasant, and they even called me around 8 or 9 pm the day I had the procedure done just to make sure everything was fine. I can’t recommend AGC enough — you won’t regret it.
I can’t say enough about Dr Caridi and his staff. All so very Informative, Caring and Attentive… they are Professional from the word “go”!
After much research into other Plastic Surgeons, I chose Dr Caridi and am very happy I did! Dr C’s surgery skills are highly commendable and I wouldn’t have trusted any other Plastic Surgeon to perform surgery on me…or my son!
My results were amazing and beyond my expectations!
If you are interested in GREAT RESULTS and a Knowledgeable, Caring Doctor and staff… Westlake Plastic Surgery is the place!
Top notch. Dr. Caridi and his staff are extremely professional. My experience was wonderful from start to end. I am completely satisfied with my results and I would refer any of my friends to Dr. Caridi.
I went in the morning of surgery and was back in the back within 5 min getting ready to go, Dr Caridi came in and said this what we need to do and this is what we are going to do and let’s do it basically and get rid of this stuff for ever. He is an excellent plastic surgeon and knows what he is doing. I am going on one week and there is no swelling and little bruising and it looks great already, it’s not even been a week.
He will tell you what he thinks before he does anything or schedules anything, He does not try to pull your leg. He is very truthful and takes his job very serious and makes sure you are in the best of care while you’re there and when you leave. He has done this surgery many times and it does not take him long to complete it. His office is awesome he has anything you need while you are there. Everyone says they want to the best surgeon, well if you want the best go to Dr Caridi in Austin, Texas.
I cannot wait to get my end results and if anyone is having second thoughts about getting this surgery done “DON’T”. This is the best thing you can do and you will not regret once you do it and get it over with. It is kind of painful afterwards, but don’t worry it will go away, it’s a little pain for a life time change. Also just contact Dr. Caridi if you want and he will talk to you and find out what’s best for you and take great care of you. Thank you Dr Caridi and your great office staff for my life time change.
PS get the local anesthesia its way better
I absolutely love Dr. Caridi and the entire staff at Westlake Plastic Surgery. I have had two procedures done there now, a face lift and a tummy tuck and I plan to go back for breast augmentation soon.
Everyone there is sooooo friendly and Dr. Caridi is an extremely skilled surgeon. I could not be happier with the work he has done. I highly recommend him and Westlake Plastic Surgery.
Love working with the good Doctor and staff.
I was SO nervous. He is silly and goofy and won’t let you feel uncomfortable! He fits you and doesn’t just talk size. Then he explains the entire thing is great detail. The evening after the surgery the nurse calls to check on you. Everything about this experience has been terrific. It’s been over two months and I just returned from a beach trip where I got tons of compliments… This IS the place to have it done!
Love love Dr. Caridi. He knows what he’s doing and makes you feel comfortable.
He corrected another surgeons ‘mistake’ from a year earlier, so I actually have something to compare it to. My results are great and I couldn’t be happier. The more you get to know him…the more you like him! Also, the staff there was amazing…all of them. (Don’t forget, this is also important.) I could go on and on…the facilities, the anesthesiologist….
I have had one child. I had my surgery 6 years ago and I love my body still to this day. I love getting jeans now, I don’t have a muffin top anymore!! I have a beautiful little waist. My confidence level is so high now and my breast are so beautiful. I look like a woman now with the best curves.
The nurses, Dr. Boysen and you are so kind and thoughtful and always made me feel so welcomed. Thank you so so so much. xoxo
After a terrible breast and lipo procedure 7 years ago I have consulted many plastic surgeons in hopes to correct another surgeons mistakes. Not only I was unhappy with the results, I felt insecure and even more self-conscious about the way I looked. Two piece bathing suits were a dream of the past. I have always been an athletic person, but my lack of confidence and post-partum complications led to some weight gain.
I consulted with Dr. Caridi about repairing my breast and liposuction. Most surgeons would have been quick to schedule the procedure- what I like to call “scalpel happy”, but Dr. Caridi cares about his patients much more than that! Dr. Caridi set up very realistic expectations. I was advised that in order to accomplish “incredible” results I needed to loose about 20 lbs! I cried all the way home, but Dr. Caridi was 100% right! It was right at that moment that I knew I was coming back to see Dr. Caridi for my procedures. His plan not only motivated me to resume my healthier habits…I was able to loose the weight and feel good about myself!
I returned to see Dr. Caridi 4 months after our initial consultation and had my procedure done in December. Needless to say, lipo was no longer necessary except for a small area that needed to be corrected. I must say that the results have been an added bonus to the complete package! I feel better than ever! I can honestly say that I am in the best shape of my life physically and mentally, and I owe this to Dr. Caridi!
The results exceeded my expectations and my two piece bathing suit is back in my wardrobe after a long hiatus! I couldn’t be happier. The staff is incredible! Always professional, friendly, compassionate and readily available before and after the operation. I highly recommend Dr. Caridi!
I am an RN and highly recommend Dr. Caridi. I did my homework on plastic surgery and interviewed several physicians before I found Dr. Caridi.
Within 5 minutes of our consultation I knew he was the physician for me. His staff is very professional and caring and my anesthesia went so smoothly. In Dallas I had a procedure 10 years prior and had severe bruising and swelling post-op. Dr. Caridi has a pre-op regimen of medications that are continued post-op to eliminate bruising and swelling almost completely. My scars are very hard to see and really only if you are looking for them.
I very highly recommend Dr. Caridi!
Dr. Caridi was great, reasonably priced. A++++++++ Would recommend friends and family.
Dr. Caridi and all his staff helped me on my journey with my husband and I. My husband had severe Gynecomastia and it had bothered him from age 14. He wouldn’t take his shirt off in public and we struggled with this through-out his 20’s.
We reviewed several Doctors and the day we met Dr. Caridi we knew he was the doctor for us, he is very strait forward and brought a smile to our faces. He told us he knew the Psychological effects of gynecomastia and told us he could help us right away. We signed up for Care Credit and the rest is history.
Finally, at 32 years old Dr. Caridi changed our lives. I will be forever grateful for how he helped my husband!
I absolutely loved the staff and Dr Caridi! He was amazing and I loved my results. I would recommend this to everybody, friends and family! I am satisfied!! 🙂
I went for my consultation for the B.A.R procedure back in December of 2012. I had done a lot of research on area surgeons and Westlake Plastic Surgery far surpassed the rest. I met with Lacy and I felt comfortable immediately, she is super sweet and very knowledgeable. Dr. Caridi and Lacy helped me decide on size and made sure I was comfortable with my decision, they were never pushy or tried to rush me into anything.
The surgery went really well and I went home to rest afterward. They made sure to call and check to see that I was doing ok. I had zero issues with healing and was surprised at how quickly I was up moving around.
Dr. Caridi and everyone at his office are so friendly and genuinely care about the outcome of your procedure. This was the biggest investment that I have made and I am more than happy that I chose Westlake Plastic Surgery.
I love Westlake Plastic Surgery. Dr. Caridi did my surgery in 2006 and I have been so happy. Everyday I am thankful for the confidence he gave me. I had a breast augmentation and liposuction – a little all over – and I absolutely love my little waist. It’s been five years and I still have an amazing lipo sculpted figure. Thank you Dr. Caridi for making feel beautiful. I would recommend Dr. C to all my friends and family.
Love, love, love Dr. Caridi! I will recommend him over and over to my friends. If you want plastic surgery done right, go see him. His staff is amazing as well. By far the best experience I could possibly have wished for.
OMG I am so happy I chose Dr. Caridi – he is amazing. He did a breast augmentation and lipo sculpting of my body. I have had one child. I had my surgery 6 years ago and I love my body still to this day. I love buying jeans now, I don’t have a muffin top anymore!! I have a beautiful little waist. My confidence level is so high now. My breast are so beautiful. I look like a woman now with the best curves. The nurses, Dr. Boysen and you are so kind and thoughtful and always made me feel so welcomed. Thank you so so so much. xoxo
Before Dr. Caridi, I had three surgeries. Two with Dr. Peter Driscoll with Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery and one with Dr. Scott Hydon with Austin Plastic Surgery Institute. All three were badly done, and my breasts looked deformed afterward. I was depressed and did not feel comfortable in my clothes, and did not want to look at body in a mirror. I had lost confidence in the doctors in Austin. Thank God I found a wonderful surgeon in Dr. Robert Caridi at Westlake Plastic Surgery.
Since the first appointment, from the attention he gave me, I could tell he really likes his profession. The staff were very friendly and professional. I recommend him if you are thinking about plastic surgery. Don’t waste your time, money, and health on other doctors.
Don’t make the same mistake I did – my previous breast procedures cost me over $25,000 with other doctors, which I’m still paying for. At the very least, see Dr. Caridi for a consultation before you have a breast augmentation with other doctors.
Thank you Dr. Caridi for returning my life back to me. I feel like a complete woman again, and my husband is very happy. Now I feel happy seeing my body in the mirror everyday. God bless you, Dr. Caridi and staff.
I had a great experience with Dr. Caridi and am extremely satisfied with the results. Five years ago I had found him through lots of research, but I chickened out on my breast augmentation. I knew I was not happy with the breast volume loss I experienced after nursing several years, but I was worried about the cost, risks, and what it said about my vanity. Five years later, I had the same concerns, except that I had accepted that wanting to feel more comfortable and excited about my own body was legitimate and worth pursuing.
Dr. Caridi and his fantastic staff took excellent care of me from helping pick appropriately size implants to fit my body, giving all of the information I needed, and performing the breast augmentation perfectly. I am often nauseated, but did not experience nausea following the procedure. It could not have gone better. My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner.
I just had a facelift procedure with Dr Caridi and had to let anyone thinking about cosmetic surgery know that I could not be happier. He did an amazing job and I look refreshed but not overdone. My friends and family can not believe how wonderful I look after 2 weeks. I must also commend his office staff and nurses…the most wonderful, thoughtful and kind group. I would never go to anyone else for a procedure!
Thank you Dr. C!
When considering a surgeon to perform my gynecomastia operation, the decision to choose Dr. Caridi at Austin Gynecomastia Center was simple. I did a good deal of research on gynecomastia and since I have been self conscious about it ever since middle school, I chose the surgeon who was the pioneer in the field. I was confident that Dr. Caridi’s technique was superior not only by the before and after photographs on his website, but also by the instructional videos he has filmed and posted to YouTube. My surgery went better than I could have imagined and my chest is now something that I am proud of rather than embarrassed of. I wish I had found Dr. Caridi and his compassionate staff sooner. My full breasts and puffy nipples are gone and my brothers don’t call me Puff Nippy anymore. Thanks Dr. Caridi!
I had an amazing experience with Dr. Caridi and his staff. From the time I walked in until I left everyone was very personable. Dr. Caridi even greeted me by giving me a hug and welcoming me to the practice, you rarely find this kind of doctor-patient interaction.
Dr. Caridi and the staff nurse was very thorough about the procedure and answered any questions I had with ease and patience. They made me feel like family and I would highly recommend Dr. Caridi for your gynecomastia or other plastic surgery needs. Thank you all very much and it was a experience I will never forget.
Love you all.
I dwelled on the having gyno surgery for a while and had two consultations before I came across Dr. Caridi videos on YouTube. What guided me towards Dr. Caridi was the informative videos he posted online and his knowledge on the subject matter. I then had the consultation via Skype and this confirmed that I was in great hands. Afterwards, I was off to his office in Austin for the surgery. The staff was exceedingly pleasant and professional from the time of my inquiry all the way to my post-op care. His office and facility is very clean, well kept, welcoming, classy and particularly the décor was exceptional.
The procedure itself was a breeze, the swelling has subsided, the incisions are healing, I am still a bit sore but by and large I am happy with my results.
Thanks Dr. Caridi and to your staff at Westlake Plastic Surgery.
I loved my experience at Westlake Plastic Surgery! I had a breast augmentation done and I couldn’t be happier with the results.
I get so many positive compliments and I tell everyone how great of a decision it was. Dr. Caridi and his whole staff were very professional and made me feel so comfortable throughout the whole process. Lacey, the RN, was so sweet and knowledgeable about everything. They’re a great team. If you are considering having a procedure definitely look into Westlake Plastic Surgery!
I’m only a few days out of surgery but I’m so impressed with my results and the care and passion that Dr Caridi and his staff gave me. I highly recommend them to others that are worried or have concerns about using them, you shouldn’t, you’ll be in great hands!
I wanted to share my experience with the Austin Gynecomastia Center (AGC), Dr. Caridi and his staff. I have suffered from Gynecomastia for as long as I can remember. I am now 50 years old and looking back over my life I have missed out on so many special occasions with my family and kids because I was always uncomfortable with the way I looked. I was always self-conscious when going to the lake, water parks, tubing etc.
I happened to come across a work out video on YouTube in which the main person in the video suffered from Gynecomastia and documented his experience. This led me to other videos documenting Gynecomastia surgeries and the results until I came across Dr. Caridi’s videos and the work that he does at the AGC. I think I watched each of his videos, some multiple times and there are quite a few. The videos cover several different surgeries, recovery and other very informative topics related to Gynecomastia. I truly felt like I already knew Dr. Caridi and some of the staff before I had even stepped foot into his office. I also read over many reviews. Reviews are tricky because personalities play a large part in how you may accept or interpret feedback when it comes to your body and any preparation that you may be told you have to work on to ensure you have positive results from the surgery. Dr. Caridi came across to me as someone who is very passionate about his work. The staff at the AGC was absolutely fantastic. They were caring and did everything they could to relieve the nervousness that I was experiencing going into this situation.
When I went into the office for the surgery I was very comfortable with the staff and then meeting Dr. Caridi he continued to relieve any stress I may have had going into the operation. He even took the time to come out and meet my family who had accompanied me to his office that day.
The surgery itself went as planned and I woke up in recovery to my family. During the next couple of days I was really surprised that I was not in more pain and only had to take 1 does of the pain medicine. I was uncomfortable more than anything, tender for sure but if I had to rate the pain over the first 3 days of recovery I would say it ranged between 4-6 on a 10 scale. The compression vest was uncomfortable to me but after 2 weeks of suffering with that vest I went and purchased several Under Armor and Nike compression shirts to wear under the compression vest. I would highly recommend this. Also I purchased medium compression shirts instead of the large which is more my size because the mediums were very tight and I felt like they offered more support and compression.
I am now just over 4 weeks out from the surgery. I am still a little sore to the touch and rolling at least 3 times a day. There is some discomfort when using the roller but that seems to be getting better over time. The results so far are really looking good. I have some swelling still and especially in my right chest that I have been a little concerned with but I went into Dr. Caridi’s office for a checkup and they explained that this is swollen tissue that will take time to return to normal and this could take months. I will make sure to post an update to this after several months. The staff has reassured me that it will subside over time but if not they would of course make sure it was taken care of.
The cost is substantial and it took years of saving up to be able to afford this surgery I would highly recommend Dr. Caridi and his staff and if at all possible I would not wait 40-50 years to decide to get this done as those are years of my life I will never get back. If you are at the 40-50 year old stage like I am the recovery to this point has not been bad and I would do it again.
Thank you to Dr. Caridi and his staff for making this such a positive experience for me.
I just had gynecomastia surgery at AGC four days ago and I was almost to tears when I had seen my chest. He removed the whole gland and contoured my chest perfectly and the swelling hasn’t even gone away yet.
I had got two gyno surgeries previously and neither came out close to what I was told because the Dr’s wouldn’t remove the whole gland. When It comes to gynecomastia he is second to none.
Dr. Caridi and his team are wonderful. He did an amazing job on my breast augmentation. He made me feel very comfortable about the procedure. After my surgery his nurses were available to contact for any questions and even called a couple times to check on me. If I ever need any other surgery I would choose him all over again!
I had my Gynecomastia surgery today at Dr. Caridi’s office and the experience was perfect, just as I expected. The staff was extremely nice and they made me feel comfortable throughout my entire visit. From the time I walked in and was greeted by name, I felt comfortable as if I were at home. You can really tell that everyone (the nurses, the medical assistant, the Anesthesiologist, and Dr. Caridi) really love their jobs and are very passionate and professional about what they do.
I was worried about the anesthesia, but they assured me that there was nothing to worry about and they were right. The IV was painless and I was out like a light in seconds. I woke up to my nurse who was very helpful and offered me a sprite to drink. She then answered any questions that I had concerning my post-op care. Dr. Caridi came in and talked with me afterwards and showed me the gland he took out. It was huge and I was surprised that he was able to take such a big gland out of such a small incision. The incision was extremely small and inconspicuous and it will heal up nicely.
I am beyond pleased with my visit and my results. This man is THE BEST when it come to this surgery, so if you are thinking about going to him, just do it because I promise you won’t regret it.
I had my surgery seven weeks ago with Dr Caridi. I’m very grateful to him and all his staff. I was on vacation when I noticed my old breast implants where shrinking. I got my first implants in Venezuela where I’m from. I was out the country so, I was very nervous. I did a search about what type of surgery I will need if my implants were leaking. I read that I need a plastic surgery capable to do an Explantation surgery and Dr Caridi has experience doing that type of surgery. I got lucky that Dr Caridi has an online consultation option. I sent my pictures and my concerns by email. It was Sunday morning when I wrote to him and he answered me Sunday night. I was very impress with him and relieved that I would see him as soon as I got home. On Monday, I got another email from his office with the all the information for the surgery, price and patient forms. I got back in Austin and Cherri founded an small window in Dr Caridi’s schedule to see me. He was booked the whole month of August. Thank you very much Cherri!!
Dr Caridi was very warm and professional when I met him. He wanted to know about the terrible situation in my Country. He made feel that he really cares about his patients. After he examined me, he told that one of my implants got out of place. I was able to feel it in my armpits. He concluded that a MRI wasn’t necessary and that I didn’t need an Explantation. I was very happy about that. The price was lower because, I needed only to replace my old implants. Thanks to the good news, I got a mini face lift at the same time!!
Maria and Lacy were my nurses. They are awesome. They took care of me. They explained everything. Maria checked on me by phone and by text. They both were wonderful. I’m very pleased with all the staff. Many thanks for all your attentions and professional services. They all are like a big family.
Now the most important part, my results after my surgery. I’m extremely happy with my results and final look. I love my new implants and I look younger. Dr Caridi made my breasts look incredible. I’m very happy I went from 280cc to 255cc. I found an excellent surgeon. I will be coming back for future things down the road. He has the knowledgeable and is very honest. I’m so happy I chose him as my plastic surgeon.
Dr. Caridi and his entire office are a true blessing to plastic surgery. I called about two and a half years ago with questions about my son and what I could do to help him with his gynecomastia. I had called a few places before Dr. Caridi and every place I called wanted me to take my son in right away so they could start the process of getting him in for surgery. These places would not even let me ask questions, they just kept pushing for me to take my son in.
When I called Westlake Plastic Surgery Dr. Caridi called me back himself, not an office assistant pushing me to do something I wasn’t sure about. Dr. Caridi was very helpful and mentioned that I should really consider waiting to do any procedures on my son until he had completed the peak of puberty. I was so impressed that he truly cared about my son and his well being and was not trying to get us in to make money. Dr. Caridi answered all my questions and concerns about the procedure and made me feel at ease with the decision I was in the process of making. I decided to listen Dr. Caridi because I knew he was sincere, truthful and he treated me like I was a person not just another procedure.
After waiting a couple of years, I called back last month and made an appointment for my son. When we went in for our appointment we realized that the entire office was just as great as Dr, Caridi, everyone there was very pleasant and helpful.
The actual consultation with Dr. Caridi and his nurse Jimie was very compassionate, caring, personal and an informative experience. Dr. Caridi remembered us and made my son feel very good about himself and let him know that he would take care of him. For my son, meeting Dr. Caridi was a life lesson. Meeting his nurse Jimie was just as special, she helped us understand how everything was going to happen and what we were to expect. She is an amazing nurse and is completely devoted to her patients! There are not enough words to express how grateful we are to have been led to such an awesome practice.
My son had his procedure done a couple of weeks ago and everything from beginning to the end results have been amazing. The results have changed my sons life and how he feels about himself and his future. I do not want to forget to mention how great they are with taking care of you after the procedure is done. We appreciated the after hours nurse calling us and checking on my son and letting us know that we could call if we had any questions and we also have a follow up appointment scheduled with Dr. Caridi. I am so happy with our entire experience at Westlake Plastic Surgery.
Amazing! The only negative thing I can say about Dr. Caridi and Westlake Plastic Surgery is that I did not find him soon enough! He is an excellent surgeon and person. Dr. Caridi is straight to the point and honest about your procedure, which is a great quality to have in a surgeon. He is very passionate about his work so he will do whatever is needed to give you the absolute best result.
Men, don’t be shy or embarrassed to go see Dr. Caridi and AGC. It is a life changing experience. I had gynecomastia removal surgery with Dr. Caridi and I can’t tell you how much it improved my self confidence! Thank you Dr. Caridi!
He deserves 10 stars.
I love this place. The front office staff is very accommodating and private. I liked that the front desk took care of my concerns behind the counter and not in front of the other patrons in the waiting room.
I’ve had a breast augmentation consultation by Dr. Caridi. I explained what my goals where, after he asked. His female assistant helped me with picking size, then Caridi came in and gave his input and explained what was the best option for me. His suggestion was right and not what I was originally thinking. Sorry to be so vague, but it is private. 🙂 I can’t wait to do the procedure! I will update when completed.
I’ve seen Dr. Boyson for botox injections. I did not feel a thing!!! She is so amazing. What I like about her injections is she didn’t over do it. I don’t look like an over injected crazy lady. I’ve gotten many compliments lately. I do take very good care of my skin, Dr. Boyson’s injections just enhanced that. My mother has had permanent makeup done by Dr. Boyson and it’s flawless, that’s why I wanted to see her.
My sister went for a bilateral breast augmentation exchange and the first time we met the doctor we at first thought he was abrasive but after the initial appointment was over we loved him. He doesn’t sugar coat anything. He tells you like it is. Before you leave you feel like family. When my sister went in for surgery he did a beautiful job. Her incisions were closed beautifully with minimal scarring.
The staff is amazing too. You feel like part of the family. I would defiantly recommend him and will use him for my plastic surgery.
If you have realistic expectations about cosmetic procedures, and desire honest feedback about where you are at currently and matter-of-fact predictions on what you can expect post-procedure, then this is the place for you. If you are a highly sensitive person you may find Caridi’s manner a bit too frank, but be honest with yourself: how does one discuss beauty enhancement without addressing the flaws???
Take the opportunity to receive a sincere assessment by a skilled surgeon with an artistic eye. It’s not an evaluation of your self worth; it’s an educated opinion on achieving a more pleasing aesthetic.
I had a breast augmentation revision (with a swap of saline for silicone) performed 8-27-2015. The nurses who helped along the way were all great- welcoming, down-to-earth, and attentive to any needs/questions. I would not hesitate to return to Dr. Caridi’s office for any future needs.
Ever since I can remember, I knew the size and shape of my nose was not something I was happy with. I was constantly analyzing my peers noses not only when seeing them day to day, but also in Facebook pictures – I felt like all I could focus on was how perfect everyone else’s noses were in comparison to mine.
Tired of being unhappy and ready to make the change, I scheduled multiple consults with different plastic surgeons in the Austin area. However, as soon as I met with Dr. Robert Caridi my decision was made! Even though we were focusing on my biggest insecurity, Dr. Caridi and his staff at Westlake Plastic Surgery really put my nerves at ease and made me feel both comfortable and confident about the whole process. One thing that especially gave me confidence was having the full-time anesthesiologist there at my consultation alongside Dr. Caridi. Getting to meet and talk things over with all those that would be part of my procedure ensured me that after what felt like a life time of insecurity, I would be satisfied with the result.
1 year later, satisfaction is an understatement. Comparing my nose to others is still a habit, but now with each comparison I am reminded of how wonderful of a job Dr. Caridi did. It truly was the best thing I ever did.
I absolutely love Dr. Caridi and his staff!! He did an amazing job with my breast augmentation and I couldn’t be happier!!
I highly recommend the Austin Gynecomastia Center. I had lost a significant amount of weight over the course of a year and still had significant breast-like fat on the chest area. After doing the research I learned that it was most likely Gynecomastia (growth of male breast tissue). After a consultation with Dr. Caridi it was confirmed that I had Gynecomastia. The surgery was less than two hours long. Recovery was quick and in my opinion painless. It just feels like you had the chest workout of your life for a few days after the procedure. Dr. Caridi and his staff are great. Everyone from the secretaries to the nurses were very knowledgeable and could answer any of my questions. Dr. Caridi himself really knows what he’s doing and knows how to shape your body to get a natural looking result. I am completely happy with the results of my procedure. I feel liberated of something that I struggled with for over a decade and I know that I’ll now get compliments instead of comments and stares. Thanks Dr. Caridi and the AGC!
I love love Westlake Plastic Surgery. Dr. Caridi did my surgery in 2006 and I have been so so happy. Everyday I am thankful for the confidence he gave me. I had a breast augmentation and liposuction – a little all over – and I absolutely love my little waist. Its been five years and I still have an amazing sculpted figure. Thank you Dr. Caridi for making feel beautiful! I would recommend Dr. C to all my friends and family.
I had Dr. Caridi remove some excess male breast tissue. I choose him over the many physicians I researched because his website dedicated a lot to gynecomastia surgery. I owe Dr. C a great deal of gratitude. He did an excellent job. After 2 months or so, my scars are barely visible to me or my wife. I’m at the lake or pool often and no one, including good friends, has noticed.
I’ll tell you this, Dr. C is a humorous, down to earth dude and his staff is great too. There is absolutely no reason to avoid seeing a surgeon because you’re embarrassed. Go get yourself taken care of. Another bonus to working with Dr. Caridi is that surgery is performed at his clinic site so you don’t have to check into a hospital and see more people during your procedure. His operation is as professional and discreet as possible. He also gives a very generous military discount. Thank you to everybody at the Austin Gynecomastia Center.
Excellent job Dr C. The office is very clean. The staff is awesome and very helpful. They even filmed my procedure with my phone. My chest looks 10 times better and I’m a lot more confident thanks to the Austin Gynecomastia Center.
I recently received a breast augmentation from Dr. Caridi and I am so happy with the results. After losing 25 pounds, my husband and I had been talking about a breast augmentation. A friend of ours had referred me to Dr. Caridi. Although she has not been to see him, she has many friends that have been under his care and all were very happy with their results.
I checked out Westlake Plastic Surgery’s website and was very impressed, right off the bat. I could tell the amount of pride that Dr. Caridi and staff have in their business and I knew I was headed in the right direction.
I called the next morning and scheduled a consultation and spoke to Cherri. Cherri was so helpful and professional and I was so excited for my appointment after speaking with her.
Soon after, my husband and I went for our appointment and instantly connected with Dr. Caridi. He was so friendly, funny, informative, confident and extremely professional. He has a way of making nervous patients feel at ease, almost immediately. My husband and I both knew instantly that we were in the right office, with the right Doctor.
I had my surgery and ended up developing a hematoma in my right breast two days after the procedure. We called the office and Dr. Caridi called us back immediately. Even though his office was closed for the afternoon, he wanted to see me and was waiting for us when we pulled in. I needed to have emergency surgery that night and Dr. Caridi never left my side. I felt terrible that he cancelled plans to be out of town with his family but I was so relieved to know that he would be the one performing the surgery. I instantly felt at ease. The second surgery was easy and Dr. Caridi took care of everything. I also want to mention that this happened on a Friday evening and Dr. Caridi checked in with my husband several times each day over the weekend.
I have since recovered perfectly and am so happy with the breast augmentation. I have a new self-confidence and am so happy with my new body. My husband and I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Caridi and everyone at Westlake Plastic Surgery. He is a wonderful doctor and truly has each patient’s best interest in mind.
If I lived anywhere in the world and I needed plastic surgery – I would pay whatever it took to get to Austin to see Dr. Caridi. He is a sculptor who’s medium is the human body. His results are stunning. His care, professionalism, kindness and generosity with his time are only superseded by his gifts for making the physical body beautiful. His focus on safety made me feel completely secure. The experience was amazing and my transformation profound.
This is the father of surgical fixation of male gynecomastia. Please do not waste time and your health with anybody else. This man is a genius and an artist. Everything was first rate from the start to the finish. I am blessed to be one of his patients!!! NO surgical drains and amazing results post op day 1!!!
Dr. Robert Caridi did my breast reduction. The outcome was better than I could have imagined and it changed my life. He takes time with each patient and answers every question and concern without making you feel ignorant or stupid. He is kind and supportive and funny. His office staff are angels. Cherry answers the phone and she is a lifeline. She makes sure you get the information you need and puts you in direct touch with the medical staff. His nurses are also the finest in the world. Becky is a gem, she makes you feel like a sister.
Dr. Boysen, Dr. Caridi’s board certified anesthesiologist is a Godsend. She helped me through a lifelong horror of general anesthesia and made it almost fun. She also has a trick for making Botox shots completely painless — not even a sting or a tingle. She’s genius! So is Dr. Caridi. The most important thing is when you get Dr. Caridi, you get the finest surgeon and physican anywhere AND you get his artistry. He understands beauty in a way that is difficult to describe. He can help you be the best you that you can be. I trust him completely and have recommended him to my family and friends.
I went to Dr. Caridi at Westlake Plastic Surgery about a month ago for a breast augmentation and couldn’t be happier. He is very matter of fact and puts no pressure on you and I loved the fact that he didn’t think bigger meant better when selecting a size. I was nervous about the surgery but Dr. Caridi and his staff made me feel comfortable and I can’t believe how easy it has all been. I would recommend him to any of my girlfriends.
I have never written a review before, but after having my first consultation with Dr. Caridi I’m over the moon with joy and had to tell everyone!!! Everyone at Westlake Plastic Surgery is oober nice and makes you feel 100% comfortable!
I went in for a very major issue in my opinion, but probably minor in the plastic surgery world. Dr. Caridi easily could have agreed with me on needing an otoplasty and easily could have charged me $4500 + for the surgery… instead he told me that I had perfect ears and would be doing me a disservice to “pin” my ears back. Instead we agreed on an earlobe reduction.
This man is honest, straight forward, tell it like it is, and quite funny. By no means am I in need of a ton of services at this point in my life, but anything I need moving forward will be in the hands of Dr. Caridi!
If you’re interested in having a breast augmentation. Here’s my experience….
I am so glad I found Dr. Robert Caridi. I’ve had experience with both Dr. Caridi and Dr. Wilder. They both are very professional doctors. However, Dr. Caridi far exceeded my expectation for aftercare and skill!
About 16 years ago Dr.Wilder put in my breast implants shortly after surgery I noticed that my right nipple was numb. I talked to Dr.Wilder about it and he showed very little concern. Which was typical of ALL my visits with him.
The reason for my return 16 yrs later was due to a ruptured implant after a routine mammogram. I decided to interview 2 Austin plastic surgeons (Dr.Wilder and Dr. Caridi) . I was very disappointed with Dr.Wilder due to the fact that he exhibited very poor bedside manner. When I put in a call with him he totally blew me off and disregarded my call by giving me no reassurance and telling me “This is no emergency contact my office Monday morning.” So I did call Dr. Wilder’s office that following Monday. They had no opening for me that week and they weren’t sure if they could get me in anytime soon but they would call me back in the event of a cancellation. Hmmm…how about that.
I immediately had to have a plan B….so I called Westlake Plastic Surgery (Dr.Caridi’s office) I spoke to Shari. She had such a calm voice and was so nice. She reassured me that everything would be fine and she could get me in the next day in the afternoon. She also said she understood how worried I was but that it does happen and it could be replaced with no problems. Wow what a difference in offices. I went from a cold sterile institute like office (hence the name APSI) to a warm comforting professional environment.
At that moment I knew … after interviewing both doctors Dr. Caridi was the right doctor for me. He was very courteous and kind answered ALL my questions. The office was very busy but he made time for me. This level of service NEVER changed pre-visits and post-visits.
I am so glad I made the decision to have Dr. Caridi perform my surgery. I told him my concern with maintaining feeling in my left breast. He made sure I lost no sensitivity! Not only that I’ve recovered some feeling back in my right breast!!! Most importantly – he listened to me. He wasn’t arrogant in his own opinion that mine didn’t matter.
I am now a 36 DD and am completely thrilled with my results, and so is my husband.
Thanks Dr.Caridi !!!!
First of all, I just want to say thank you! You and your staff were wonderful and made me feel at ease about having the surgery performed. I felt like you understood not only the physical part of the gynecomastia but the psychological aspect as well. For once, I actually look forward to using our pool this summer. I am amazed at the results. My only regret is not having this done 10 years ago! The incisions are almost completely healed and not noticeable at all.
It was a big deal for me
Anyone considering gyno surgery has to consider the AGC for sure.
The AGC is the real deal.
I’m from out of town. They called me a lot during my recovery to answer my questions. That was nice.
He has a wonderful anesthesiologist. I wasn’t interested in feeling anything and they delivered!
Loved the AGC! Only regret is not taking care of this a lot sooner.
Dr. Caridi got me off the fence and now I’m rid of my gynecomastia!
After meeting with Dr. Caridi it was quite obvious he is a pro at his craft.
The gyno shaver was cool–no incision on my chest!
I had a blast staying in Austin after having my gynecomastia treated by Dr. Caridi.
My procedure was like a walk-in-the-park at the Austin Gynecomastia Center at Westlake Plastic Surgery!
I looked all over the country for an expert in gyno. I found him at the AGC!
Just wanted to let you guys know (six years later) that I am still so pleased with my mommy makeover Dr. Caridi did in 2005. I have recommended your office numerous times over the years. Besides doing a wonderful job, Dr. Bob makes you feel SO comfortable and at ease. The staff was great and their interactions with each other made you feel like family! I definitely plan to return in the near future to have some “touch-up” work done! Just recommended you again today, so I thought it was only fair to let you know I thought you did an AWESOME job!!
This past week I celebrated my one year anniversay of my surgery. After years of medical procedures and significant weight loss, I met with Dr. Caridi and told him that I was doing it “for me.” I have never felt so good about my body. Some days it’s almost unfathomable, the life I have now. Everyday, getting dressed is fun, as everything fits well, hangs well. I viewed your website for the first time in many months and couldn’t help but smile as I recognized the faces. I’ve never had a ‘medical’ experience like it. When in your office, I’m recognized, treated like someone among friends, not the ‘NEXT’ patient. Thank you, thank you so much! Best wishes to all of you for continued success for many, many years in changing people’s lives.
I have to tell you I am so happy with my new body! My breasts are my new best friends and I thank you from the very bottom of my heart. I am close to 1 month post-op from breast augmentation surgery and you have changed my life forever. It is hard for me to put into words how grateful I am to you! I am so honored to have met you and I look forward to the relationship I will continue with you and your great staff! You are an AWESOME doctor!!
This was one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself! I would be more than happy to give a testimonial if you ever need one.
I had a wonderful experience. I could not be more pleased with your facilities, doctors, nurses, and the entire surgery. Thank you for taking the time to address all of my concerns.
I especially appreciate the care that was taken making my husband feel comfortable and like a participant in my procedure. It was the smoothest surgical procedure I have ever had.
Excellent experience. Thanks to everyone for all your care and support. I will recommend your surgery center to all. I’m very pleased with the outcome. I feel wonderful and once again want to thank you.
I am very satisfied with my experience and surgery at Westlake Plastic Surgery. Everyone was professional and warm. The facilities were very clean and comfortable. My expectations were met in the highest degree. Thank you!
Words cannot express my gratitude for the perfect body sculpting Dr. Caridi performed. Dr. Caridi removed fat from all over by body and the result is truly beautiful. I am so happy. I feel so good about my new look and I can wear clothing that I could never have dreamed of wearing. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Dr. Caridi performed my breast augmentation. He made me feel so at ease. He took plenty of time to explain everything to me. His nurse was so helpful and informative. His anesthesiologist, Dr. Diane Boysen was wonderful. I was safely asleep and did not feel any pain. The entire staff was great. Everything about it was positive. I had minimal swelling, and a very painless recovery due to the pain pump. My incisions (crease) are barely noticeable. My breasts are very natural looking. I would return to Dr. Caridi for plastic surgery in the future.
I can’t tell you how grateful I am to Dr. Caridi and the first-class staff at Westlake Plastic Surgery. I recovered pretty quickly from my surgery. I feel great and I finally look the way I feel. Thank you for the kindness you all showed us.
I went to Dr. Caridi for plastic surgery. Dr. Caridi recommended ‘staged’ surgery. First I had a large liposuction; then six months later a breast augmentation and a little more liposuction; then six months after that a facelift and an eye lift, and finally one month later a blue peel. I know it sounds like a lot, but it was perfect. I wouldn’t have wanted to do one without another. It was perfect for me. The staff of Westlake Plastic Surgery was wonderful. It was a great experience.
They don’t cut corners at Westlake Plastic Surgery. The privacy of having an on-site surgery center made me feel safe and comfortable. I felt like I was the center of attention. The same team of staff members surrounded me from beginning to end. I knew everyone by first name. My surgical experience couldn’t have gone better.
The experience was much better than I anticipated! Everyone was very professional and kind! Thank you all!
Thank you so much!! I feel like you went to medical school just to treat me! That is how special and wonderful you and your staff made me feel.
Dr. Caridi is the best. I wouldn’t have ever considered having anything done with anyone else. It starts with his honest opinion and finishes with a trusting, caring friend.
I went to Dr. Caridi for plastic surgery. I totally trusted him with my care. He gave great advice and helped me sort out all the options. At a time when TV shows unrealistic plastic surgery, I turned to Dr. Caridi for appropriate advice and wisdom. My safety was his top priority.
I first met Dr. Robert Caridi in the emergency room because my lip got chewed off by a Great Dane. Dr. Bob did a fabulous job and I don’t even have a scar. Later, I went to Dr. Caridi for liposuction. Since then he has totally re-done my wife! I think he is the best plastic surgeon in the world. He is a miracle of modern science!
I was in decent shape but had areas of my body that always drove me crazy – specifically, I wanted my thighs and rear to be a smaller. Still, the thought if having plastic surgery scared me so I did lots of research before deciding to talk to Dr. Caridi. Immediately, he made me feel at ease and answered every question thoroughly. I had liposuction and I am very pleased with the results. Finally, I had the body I’d been dreaming of! I’d highly recommend Dr. Caridi to anyone considering having a cosmetic procedure.
I didn’t expect the toll that having children would take on my body. I went to Dr. Caridi for a breast augmentation, breast lift and liposuction. Now my figure is proportionate and my confidence is back. Dr. Caridi is skilled and confident. The staff of Westlake Plastic Surgery was wonderful and kind.
I had surgery by Dr. Robert Caridi at Westlake Plastic Surgery. It was an incredible, life changing experience executed from start to finish with comfort and professionalism. I felt as though I was being cared for by family.
Hats off to Dr. Caridi and his staff! What I envisioned as one of ‘life’s most humbling moments’ has evolved into an exciting life changing event. Thank you so much for all the extra time you and your staff spent helping me in my “artistic transformation” – I love the outcome! A special thanks for making it financially possible. I cannot express my gratitude enough. The teamwork and professionalism in your office is a rare find.
I can’t believe it has been six months since my surgery! I am so pleased with the results, I don’t think I can put it into words what a change this has been for me. Everything went so smoothly from the first visit until my visit last week. This has been an incredible journey for me. The surgery went so well and the recovery went so smoothly. You all did such a great job preparing me for the surgery and recovery that all seemed to go as planned without any surprises. I was never in any discomfort and the time flew by. You all gave me more than my figure back , you gave me some much needed self confidence too. I love to go shopping for clothes now. I will see something that a model or mannequin will be wearing and I can buy it and wear it with confidence. No more trying to buy clothes that will hide my body. I will be wearing a swimsuit at the lake for the first time in years! I am a whole new person with a whole new outlook for my future. I am even more motivated to eat healthy and continue to exercise regularly so I can maintain this new figure. This surgery has been a life style changing event not only for me but for my family! We are getting healthy! This experience has even enriched my life with my husband. I knew he loved me but after seeing my before and after photos I know that he really loves me. I am looking forward to being his eye candy for many years to come.
Thank you so much for all you have done for me! I am feeling so good about myself for the first time in years. You all were so wonderful and so supportive of me and my results. I can’t thank you enough!
I am a theatric performer and singer, so the surgeon I chose for my nasal surgery was a big decision. Dr. Caridi was excellent and everything went beautifully.
After having three boys, I wanted my body back. Diet and exercise helped, but certain areas of my body never seemed to change. Childbirth can do that to you. I went to see Dr. Caridi about a ‘mommy make-over’. I told him that I wanted him to fix everything from my breast down to my thighs, and boy, did he! During my consultation, Dr Caridi and his friendly and informed staff were very good about making sure I was comfortable while helping me decide which procedures would be best for me. Dr. Caridi and his staff are of the utmost professional caliber and I now consider every one of them my friend. I would highly recommend Westlake Plastic Surgery to anyone who is feeling a little down about their appearance. Dr. Caridi has totally changed my life for the better and I know he can do the same for you.
I would HIGHLY recommend your expertise to anyone wanting either a “spiff-up” or more comprehensive cosmetic surgery.
Your talent is unrivaled. You and your staff are professional, inspire confidence and provide excellent before and after care. I was given accurate and complete information. All my questions were answered and my concerns fully addressed.
My experience was life changing. I recognize “me” once again. It is much easier to age gracefully without all those chins. (Where did they come from?) I love that my eyelids no longer droop.
There is no way to suitably express my appreciation.
I am eternally grateful.
My name is Vida and I had upper eyelid surgery. I love the results and I wish I would have done it ten years ago. Not only I look better, I feel better and from feeling better, I am inspired to take care of my body more. I eat smaller portions at each meal and I take more walks and dance more. It is hard to believe that a change on the outside can make such a change on the inside. Dr. Caridi is a combination of an expert plastic surgeon and a master human body sculptor and I am very grateful for all he did for me.
Thank you Dr Caridi, Dr. Boysen and staff. You are all angels. My life has changed dramatically since my procedures. I have learned a lot and am so very grateful. With your loving and creative help, you have helped me open up to endless possibilities in this beautiful life. We are all very blessed. Indeed you are all artists and angels!
Blessings and much love!
I want to thank you for your consultation in late November. I so appreciate your candid advice and your integrity, in light of the fact you were turning away business. I’ve enjoyed Dr. B “Needles” and her work. Lizzy is fun, too!
Thank you to everyone at Westlake Plastic Surgery for the FABULOUS care and flawless execution of my procedures. Only six days out and I’m already in love with the results! Your focus on quality, friendliness and professionalism put me at ease and made the entire experience so pleasant. So many people have asked me who did my work, and I have proudly replied, ‘Dr. Caridi.’ Expect an influx of consultations!
I had to go last week for my baseline mammogram. The tech was VERY complimentary of your work. Not ever coming across some one else’s breasts myself, I wouldn’t know otherwise, but she said that with so many women she sees the implants are encapsulated, rigid, located poorly… She was very impressed by how easily she could manipulate mine to get the shots she needed. She complimented my choice of doctors…
If anyone would know, I would assume someone that sees 300 – 400 breasts a week would!
Of course you and I already know that you’re very good at what you do, so it’s like preaching to the choir… But still nice to hear!
Dear Dr. Caridi,
I felt the need to share this story with you.
I went in for my yearly check up with my Gyn. I was a tad bit nervous to see him because this was the first visit since my breast augmentation. He has been my doctor since 1985 and is very conservative. His exact words upon seeing my new breasts were “WOW !’ “WOW!” “WOW!” ” Can I touch them!” All in all he was very impressed. That would have been fun left at that.
Well, two days ago I get a call from him. I was a bit nervous because there was no reason that I knew of for him to call me. He was actually calling me to get your name. He told me that in his career he has seen thousands of breast real and augmented. Initially after seeing mine he considered them to be in the top two he has ever seen. After consideration he decided that mine were the top for two reasons. First–my age and second–the fact that I have had three children. Taking all of that into consideration, he is going to give your name to all his patients looking for augmentation.
I just thought you would like to know that your work is raising more than eyebrows if you know what I mean! lol!
Thank You Again,
You performed my breast augmentation about 7 years ago and I am still very happy with the results. I have taken great care to sleep in a sports bra and wear double bra when running. I have had other friends that have had augmentations from other doctors. They are envious of the look and shape of my breasts. Just wanted to say thank you for giving me years of self-confidence!
