I am so impressed with this doctors work and his bedside manner. I am currently 10 days post op and I am feeling better each day. I have seen my doctor so many times after my surgery and the fact that he has taken the time to see and ask how I am feeling and progressing is so important to me. His work is amazing I am so happy with my results so far. I had gotten a mini tummy tuck, full back and arm lipo, no fat was added to my behind however it was contoured and lifted a little more. He is very honest and will provide you with all the information you need. I will recommend him to anyone who wants to get plastic surgery of any kind. You will not regret. I am so happy with his staff as well. I love getting the massages at the office with my girl. His team is very nice. I will be coming back for my breasts. Lol I’m not fully recovered already planning my second round with him. Thank you Dr. Ulerio. I’m so happy.
