  • Aesthetic Endoscopic Abdomen Surgery: It is the ideal type of surgery for people who have weakened abdominal muscles, without obvious fat or skin in the abdominal area. This procedure is performed through a camera connected to a tube called an endoscope, in this sense, the incision made by the surgeon is of a sufficient length to insert the endoscope and surgical tools. Endoscopic abdomen cosmetic surgery applies to men and women who suffer from diastasis of the rectus muscle.

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.
