Drs Paula Lapinski and Jose Rios are the \r
greatest. They show concern for their patients and very\r
professional and thorough in their work. I had Basal\r
Cell Mohs surgery performed on me. Dr Lapinski had to do the procedure 3 times to make sure she got all the cancer cells.After the third procedure she came into the room and yelled ""we got it all"" which made me feel so good. I had a hole behind my ear the size of a baseball but after Dr. Rios finished stitched me up you can't even tell I had any surgery done.\r
Drs Lapinski and Rios are the greatest.\r
They deserve a HUNDRED STAR RATING .\r
Thanks again from all of our family.\r
We will never forget what you have done for us.

I am 57, 140lbs and had my breast augmentation surgery in December of 2011 and LOVE my breasts. I went from a full B/small C to a DD. I went with the Silicone fill vs. the Saline fill and they look and feel very natural. I would highly suggest going with the Silicone fill vs. the Saline fill because they are just as safe and feel real. You will have two consultations where he thoroughly discusses with you the differences between the two fills, the surgery, his recommendations, and any questions or concerns you may have about your upcoming surgery. He is very professional and loves what he does. You know from the first meeting that you are in very good hands and that he is going to make you look and feel amazing. I highly recommend him to anyone and have already given his card and information to some of my friends. He is also very affordable and offers different payment plans.

I chose Dr Rios as my surgeon for a breast reduction and lift, and it was a great choice! Dr Rios is not only a skilled, knowledgeable surgeon but he is also a caring and kind doctor. All my questions were answered promptly, even on Christmas Day! Dr Rios and his staff have made this a great experience from start to finish. My results are better than I expected. I would highly recommend Dr Rios and his staff and I will return to their office with any future needs. Thank you so much!!

In early August of 2011, I had breast augmentation surgery as well as a tummy tuck at the same time both performed by Dr. Rios. I had a large baby back in 1994 which caused loose abdominal skin. I am an avid fitness enthusiast and couldn't tighten the skin from diet and exercise. I also had very small breasts my whole life which made it difficult to buy swimsuits and look decent in clothes. I was referrred to Dr. Rios by a friend at the gym who had breast surgery a year before me. I was extremely pleased with the results from both surgeries. Dr. Rios was very professional and he told me all of the risks up front as well as what result I could expect based on my body. He did not pressure me to make any quick decisions nor did he try to influence what cup size I chose. The post operative period went very smoothly and the scars are healing well. Dr. Rios checked in on me the evening of surgery as well as several times over the next few weeks. Any time I had a question or concern, Dr. Rios called me personally to disucss. He never made me feel like I was a both. I went back to work after two weeks and I did not experience any extreme levels of pain. The cost was exactly as quoted and I was able to schedule my surgery when it was convenient for me. The office staff was friendly and responsive. I would definitely recommend Dr. Rios for these surgeries.

After the birth of our 9-1/2 pound son twenty-one years ago I had extensive stretch marks, an unattractive vertical c-section scar, and loss of muscle that caused a loose, un-toned pouch no amount of diet and exercise would alleviate. My subsequent pregnancy with our daughter seventeen years ago exacerbated these issues even further. Despite daily exercise and weight loss/weight maintenance, the appearance of my stomach affected my self-confidence and self-image more with each passing year. My stomach was not only unattractive to me but also to my husband.

Though I knew they would do nothing to alleviate the pouch and muscle loss, I have tried a number of topical applications over the years in an attempt to minimize the stretch marks and appearance of the scarall to no avail. I have considered having an abdominoplasty for quite a few years. One day I saw one of Dr. Rios ads in the newspaper offering a free initial consultation. Familiar with the practices wonderful reputation, and with my husbands full encouragement and support, I scheduled that consultation.

Prior to meeting Dr. Rios I was a bit apprehensive, but my apprehensiveness diminished as we began discussing the procedure. Dr. Rios is so knowledgeable, thorough, and easy to converse with that our questions were answered and concerns allayed during that first meeting. I really appreciate the fact that Dr. Rios has potential surgical patients come back for a second consultation to further address any additional questions and/or concerns that may have arisen following the first consultation. At the second consultation, we discussed a few more issues and proceeded to schedule the procedure.

From the moment I arrived to have the procedure, on-site care far exceeded my expectation. Meeting with the anesthesiologist and seeing Dr. Rios prior to the procedure definitely calmed any day of concerns I may have had. Pain management was highly effective and I ceased actual pain medication 1-1/2 days after the procedure. The personal contact I/we received following the procedure was phenomenal. Dr. Rios was reachable at a moments notice and called the night of the procedure to check on me. Knowing that Dr. Rios was just a phone call away was unbelievable!

The results of my abdominoplasty have so far exceeded our expectation and I am only three weeks out from surgery. Follow-up visits have been filled with encouragement and informationDr. Rios staff goes above and beyond to be helpful and kind!

Something Dr. Rios said at our initial consultation with him really touched me at the time and has continued to play in my mind since. As we were conversing during that first meeting, Dr. Rios stated that it was important to him personally to build a relationship with his patients and that he would always be accessible, no matter how big or small the issue/question. That kind of dedication and genuine patient concern are not often found. Dr. Rios medical experience and surgical skill are proven time and time againadd the personal connection he provides his patients and the care received is truly unrivaled! Thank you Dr. Rios!

I have wanted breast augmentation for many years. I never thought I would actually go through with it. After my first consultation visit with Dr. Rios I was positive I wanted to have this surgery and he was the right doctor for me. I wanted to make sure I knew everything I could before I had this surgery. Dr. Rios took time to listen and answer all my questions. I never felt rushed at his office. Dr. Rios and his staff were just wonderful. He discussed with me all of my options. He helped me make the right decision on size for me. I was very nervous about going too big for my size and frame. The day of surgery everything went great. I had no pain just a little discomfort. I took Motrin for two days. Dr. Rios called to check on me that same evening. I was back to work within a few days of surgery. I have called his office and have seen him twice since surgery and their excellent service still continues. It

I??m sure there are other great plastic surgeons out there, but Dr. Rios is someone who cares for you as a person not just as a patient. I consider myself very lucky to have found Dr. Rios. I wish I had called his office years ago.

Having chosen Dr.Rios for my breast augmentation was the wisest decision I've ever made. His down-to-earth personality, sense of humor, expertise and honesty immediately made me comfortable. The staff at his offices are professional and kind. Dr.Rios explained the procedure and risks thoroughly, as well as answered all of my questions without rushing the appointments. I never doubted he cares about his patients, and he confirmed that when he called from home the day after my surgery to check on me. Everything Dr.Rios told me about post-op recovery was true: I was out & about with my family the night of surgery, took my kids to the zoo the next day, had very little pain/discomfort (only took 600mg of Motrin the first 2 days), and recovered faster than I had ever imagined possible from such a procedure. Not to mention, the results are BEAUTIFUL!! Dr.Rios does phenomenal work and I highly recommend him to anyone considering breast augmentation or plastic surgery of any sort!

I absolutely loved my experience with Dr. Rios. Of course I was initially charmed by his sense of humor and warm personality, but more importantly, I chose him and stuck with him because of his expertise, knowledge and clear passion for what he does. His procedure is unlike anyone else's and I can personally attest to the ease of recovery afterwards. I took the normal dosage of motrin for the first 3 days and have felt no pain since. I am so grateful to Dr. Rios and his entire staff. They made my procedure a very enjoyable and comfortable one and I LOVE the results.

Highlights: Both consultations were thorough. I never felt rushed. He encouraged me to call him or come in as often as I wanted. Dr. Rios was incredibly patient with me as I went back and forth between sizes. He offered his insight without ever pressuring me to make a quick decision. The surgery center was amazing. He made me laugh when I was nervous and called me that evening to check in. My follow-up visit was wonderful, too. The staff at his office are top-notch and deserve highest praises. Overall, a wonderful experience.

I cannot stress how pleased I am with the results of my recent breast augmentation with Dr. Rios. At the consultation, Dr. Rios explained the procedure in detail and answered every question that I had without making me feel as though I am being rushed out the door for the next appointment. His laid back attitude and sense of humor made me feel relaxed at both consultations and on the day of surgery when I was feeling anxious and nervous. When I woke up from my breast augmentation surgery, I could not believe that I felt as good as I did. Sure, I was groggy, but I was not in a lot of pain. I was back to doing all of my normal activities within 48 hours, including picking up my 23lb 10 month old daughter. By the 5th day, I was back to sleeping on my side and could not have been happier! I would strongly recommend Dr. Rios if you are considering breast augmentation.

I am a patient of both Dr. Rios and Dr. Lapinski and have used their services of their aestheticians/laser tech also. The entire staff from the front desk to the assistants have always been friendly, personable and professional.
I have seen Dr. Lapinski over the past 7 years and respect the fact that she has always given options of skin care that are practical and to not add any unnecessary costs. She has always been thorough and follows up from previous appointments to make sure products or procedures were as expected and never pushes anything that isn't needed.
Thru the entire process of my breast augmentation Dr. Rios has been amazing. He has treated me more as a friend instead of just a patient. Whether it be an appointment or just a phone call he has always been genuine with his care and concern.
I have never felt that an appointment has been rushed or any question has not been answered. He has always made himself available and said to call anytime for anything (which I have) and he has always immediately responded personally.
What I appreciate the most is that he has always been honest and up front in explaining a procedure and what the realistic expectations should be.
My results are wonderful and his knowledge and skills as a surgeon are reflected in the outcome of his work.
I feel their goal is to make sure you are completely satisfied and they will take every step to make sure of that, no matter how many visits.
If you are looking for doctors that have your best interest at heart, I highly recommend Dr. Rios and Dr. Lapinski. They treat and respect you as a "person", not as a piece of paper in a file (as my experience has been with other doctors). They are truly wonderful people.

Words cannot express what a FANTASTIC and CARING surgeon Dr. Rios is!! He made me feel comfortable and relaxed from the moment we met. The staff at the office was extremely helpful and they always welcome you with a smile. At my consult Dr. Rios discussed my breast augmentation in detail and answered all the questions I had. When it came time to pick out the size of implants that would be right for me, he was honest and forthcoming. I chose the size I wanted and was anxiously awaiting the surgery. I was completely amazed by Dr. Rios skill as a surgeon. My surgery went great!! I had NO PAIN afterward, just a mild case of muscle soreness (it felt like I overdid it lifting weights)!!! Dr. Rios called me that evening to make sure I was okay. I told him I felt great! I was driving that same night and out and about the next day. I had surgery on Tuesday and went back to work on Thursday! When I went to see Dr. Rios two days after my surgery my first question to him was How come I am not in pain? I never had any bruising and did not have to take any medication other than Motrin. Its been 6 weeks since my surgery and I could not be happier with the results. I will recommend Dr. Rios to everyone I know! He is truly AMAZING!!

The staff at the office was extremely helpful and they always welcome you with a smile. At my consult Dr. Rios discussed my breast augmentation in detail and answered all the questions I had. When it came time to pick out the size of implants that would be right for me, he was honest and forthcoming. I chose the size I wanted and was anxiously awaiting the surgery. I was completely amazed by Dr. Rios skill as a surgeon. My surgery went great!! I had NO PAIN afterward, just a mild case of muscle soreness (it felt like I overdid it lifting weights)!!! Dr. Rios called me that evening to make sure I was okay. I told him I felt great! I was driving that same night and out and about the next day. I had surgery on Tuesday and went back to work on Thursday! When I went to see Dr. Rios two days after my surgery my first question to him was How come I am not in pain? I never had any bruising and did not have to take any medication other than Motrin. Its been 6 weeks since my surgery and I could not be happier with the results. I will recommend Dr. Rios to everyone I know! He is truly AMAZING!!

I am a 27 year old mother of 2. I played sports all my life (volleyball, soccer, cheerleading, gymnastics) and had a great shape. Unfortunately my preganancies did not agree with my body. I have poor elasticity and with each pregnancy gained about 40-45 lbs. Post-pregnancy I worked out all the time and was back to my pre-pregnancy weight but still did not feel comfortable in my skin and wouldn't dare wear a bikini. After my 2nd child I knew I was done having kids and scheduled an appointment with Dr. Rios after doing some research on the web. I met with him in September and had a wedding I was standing up in and a vacation to Disneyworld planned so I held off after my first consultation. I rescheduled with him in February with my husband and knew this was the best choice. He was so easy to talk to and you felt immediately comfortable with him. My husband is very skepticle of most people and wasn't quite sold on me needing to have the surgery and he even felt extremely comfortable with Dr. Rios. After my consultation I thought maybe I should at least see one more doctor in person to decide if he was the right doctor and spoek with a friend that did the breast augmentation and asked who her doctor was so I could get a second opinion to my suprise she also used Dr. Rios and only had amazing things to say, so with that I didn't even get a second opinion.

Dr. Rios was so reassuring I was not very nervous going into the surgery, more about the anesthesia than the actual surgery, which was also explained very well the day of the surgery. I had the surgery a year ago in May and wouldn't change a thing. It is a very major surgery and took a good week for recovery with only going to motrin for pain by day 2 or 3. After a week I went back to work (part-time) and had a little difficulty walking around but for the most part felt pretty good. I had the drains in for a week post surgery. After 2 weeks I was pretty much back to the usual day routines. During my recovery Dr. Rios personally called every day for the first few days just to see how I was doing.

I have had to do a scar readjustment post surgery because we didn't like the placement and through it all Dr. Rios has been absolutely amazing. We have built a great relationship through the course of all our visits. I would recommend him to anyone and would encourage anyone who is even considering to schedule an appointment with him to talk through your personal decisions. He is not pushing what so ever and would really help you make the best decision for you. Its truly the best descision I have ever made and well worth the pain and money.

I cannot even beging to express how amazed and impressed I am with Dr. Rios and his staff. I submitted a request for information and got a response from Dr. Rios personally answering my question about breast augmentation after breastfeeding. He gave me specific personal information and when I met him in person, I was immediately comfortable and confident that he was the surgeon for me. He is personable, knowledgable and really funny, too! I love that he spent as much time with me as needed to be sure we both agreed on exactly what would perfectly fit my needs. His staff is also friendly, helpful and goes the extra step to make sure you feel great about taking this big step. \r
\r
The procedure itself could not have gone more smoothly. In addition to breast implants, I also asked Dr. Rios to revise my C-Section scar. The surgical facility was great and I felt completely prepared for everything that would happen. Dr. Rios told me exactly what to expect and it all happened just as he said. He called me that night to see how I felt, and the truth is that I felt great! You would never know that I even had surgery because I was up and about that night and back to work in just a few days. My scars are healing so nicely and I absolutely love the way my body looks!! For a mom with three small children (all of them were C-Sections and breastfed for more than a year each!) I never thought I would say this, but I'm wearing a bikini this summer and I can't wait!!! Thanks to Dr. Rios, I love my body and feel so confident. The entire office is wonderful and they made this experience so positive and exciting for me that I wish all women could feel this fantastic!

Mere words cannot express the feelings of heartfelt GRATITUDE and RESPECT that I have for Dr. Rios. From the moment I started discussing the possibility of having a tummy tuck, Dr. Rios personalized my care specifically for me. \r
He took as much time as I needed at each and every appointment and answered every question and concern. He made himself available to me if something came up before, during, or after my procedure. He was always a phone call away. I never felt rushed and he made me feel so comfortable. Even though he has so many other patients, I always felt as if I was the only one. \r
Dr. Rios is a MASTER at what he does and his PASSION and LOVE for the ART of what he does is very apparent. Even though this was major surgery, I always felt safe. I trust Dr. Rios completely and I would more than recommend him to all of my family and friends if they are considering this type of surgery.\r

Dr. Rios was the 5th plastic surgeon I went on a consultation with and I knew immediately that he was ""the one"" for me.

Before I even get into Dr. Rios himself, the office and staff were EXTREMELY helpful, nice and professional. The office was state of the art, clean and quiet. Which seems kind of basic, but trust me- after 5 other consults, I had seen some very strange office setups.

I immediately felt comfortable and relaxed in his care. He was very professional yet also very down to earth when talking to me. Compared to other PS that all seemed skeptical of me because I am young, Dr. Rios seemed confident in my ability to pay for and go through with my breast aug.

Dr. Rios took the time to answer all of my questions and informed me that I would have to come in for a second consultation with him in order to proceed with my breast aug. I left his office knowing he was going to be the one!

My second consult was the best, I was so eager to pick a size and schedule a surgery date. Dr. Rios again displayed professionalism and extreme care and concern for my decision. He instructed me on what size would be best and then let me play around with cc's before I finally decided on 400cc's silicone. He was honest and upfront in telling me that if I go any larger I would risk looking bad and that 400 would be the best for me. I agreed and then went to confirm my surgery date.

The day of surgery- my surgery time got pushed back which was sort of upsetting. I was already EXTREMELY nervous and was scared if I had to wait any longer- I would freak out and cancel...luckily I did not [lol]. Dr. Rios came in before my surgery and was again very honest with me, especially when I asked him ""if I would die"" lol which was one of my biggest concerns... he again, charmed me away from all of my worries and took care of me!

I woke up with boobs and was instantly in love with them. That same night I was able to move around freely and shower with very very little restrictions. I was able to fully move around by day 2 and felt no pain at all after a full week. Even after my surgery, Dr. Rios continued to win me over by calling me that same evening to check on me and make sure I was okay. What really won me over was that I ended up having some sort of freak allergic reaction to something that was put in my IV, I broke out into hives all over my back, arms, neck, legs, and feet. Dr. Rios called me all weekend to make sure I was okay and provided me with suggestions to get rid of the allergy.

A few days after my surgery, I went in to his office for a follow up visit and again was charmed and wow'ed by Dr. Rios. He even gave me a bouquet of flowers on my follow up visit! Like seriously, how many surgeons do you know that go the extra mile like that for their patients!? I truly fell in love with him as my surgeon and would recommend him to any and everyone considering getting a breast aug in Illinois. Don't go for the expensive surgeons with a lakefront office downtown- stay close to your home and visit someone like Dr. Rios.

I am posting such a long and detailed review because prior to my surgery I was scouring the internet for reviews on Dr. Rios- good or bad- and found only 2! Hopefully this review will help other girls out by providing a truthful and detailed review about my experience with Dr. Rios. I love him!

A year ago, thanks to Dr. Paula Lapinski and her physicians assistant, I had a VERY early melanoma found. She was informative and supportive.....when I was scared to death. Fortunately, her husband, Dr. Rios is a plastic surgeon. My surgery was scheduled right away and Dr. Rios did a nice, neat job on the really large incision. Dr. Lapinski feels that once you have melanoma, you can't be too careful; so she got me started on a watchful regimen. I think their entire staff is helpful and they put you at ease. I highly recommend them!

I went to a few different surgeons before finally meeting Dr. Rios. I could not believe the difference in the staff, the atmosphere, and facilities of all the other places I visited. One particular doctor actually made me feel more insecure about myself leaving her office then when I walked in! \r
\r
I have known for 10 years that I wanted a breast augmentation but like many women never had the courage to actually do it. Once I met Dr. Rios there was NO TURNING BACK!!! I was excited and confident. My husband was soo shocked with my enthusiasm to schedule the surgery. I was never uncomfortable. Dr Rios was professional in every way and had a great sense of humor! :) Other friends who have had breast augmentation with other doctors said that there was no way I would be able to survive on motrin alone and that I would need at least 3wks off work and someone to help take care of me.\r
\r
After my first visit I had called the office to talk to someone in billing regarding my surgery to make a change about my type of implant and was beyond surprised to recieve a personal call back from Dr. Rios himself!!! My second visits not only confirmed my decision but also the expertise that Dr. Rios has regarding breast augmentation. After ""trying on"" a few sizes I was afraid of looking too large or fake. His suggestion was not what I would have picked for myself, and I am GLAD! I would have gone to small. His choice was the absolute perfect size for me!\r
\r
My surgery was quick and almost painless. I was out with my son and husband for dinner the same night. I woke up the next morning and drove my 3yr old to the movies. I took motrin for 2 days and didn't need anything else. I had no bruising and was sporting a bikini pool side 4 days after my surgery! It is hard to believe until you actually live it!!! I am positive that there isn't a better doctor around the Naperville area.

Dr. Rios was recommended to me by a friend who had a breast augmentation. After hearing her experience and seeing how great she looked. I decided to make a appointment with Dr. Rios. By the very first appointment I knew that I wanted Dr. Rios to be my doctor. He was very up front with the negatives and positives of surgery. He made me feel extremely comfortable. He was charming, funny and very professional. Its been 2 weeks since my breast augmentation and I feel and look great. I had no pain and was up and about with both my kids the following day. Dr. Rios and his staff and are wonderful. There is no doubt that I picked the best Dr!!!!!\r

Pros: Great Doctor, Wonder Staff, Great Work

I went to Dr. Rios upon recommendation from two of my friends who had prior surgeries with him. One had just a breast augmentation the other a breast lift and augmentation. I however, needed not only a breast lift and augmentation, but a tummy tuck with hip lipo. I had been waiting for years for these procedures. I have 3 beautiful children that I ended up delivering c-section and breastfeeding all of them. I am now done having children and felt at 39 that my life and body needed this improvement. \r
I made the decision not only on my friends' recommendations, but after going to my first consult with him at the Joliet office. He has a very wonderful personality and bedside manner. He was very frank and honest about what would need to be done and how we would go about it. A second consult is a must which I felt was also very important. Everything was answererd and handled by either him or his wonderful staff. There was never a question that I was going to the wrong doctor or if I should be getting this done. His work is absolutely wonderful. I ended up feeling like my body was transformed and it has made me feel more positive about myself. I am not going to lie or sugar coat the procedures, but they are pretty extensive. I thought at first that I was hit by a truck and dragged for a while. But I was up and around the next day, with restrictions, of course, but improving with leaps and bounds every day. I had the surgery February 16,2010, and I am just 8 weeks post-op doing everything I did before, but with even more confidence and attitude. My husband is in awe over the recovery/healing time, appearance of the procedures and of course the professionalism we both received. We would both highly recommend this doctor. \r

Pros: Very Professional, Excellent Bedside Manner & Beautiful Work

Dr. Rios performed a breast augmentation for me last week. I had very little pain and hardly any downtime. The results are great, even at one week and one day post op. Recovery has been a breeze. In fact, I have taken no prescription pain medication. Only ibuprofen and I haven't had to take any for days. Not only is he a skilled surgeon, he's a funny, warm and very reassuring.
I would recommend him to anyone wanting a breast augmentation.

In fact, I have taken no prescription pain medication. Only ibuprofen and I haven't had to take any for days. Not only is he a skilled surgeon, he's a funny, warm and very reassuring.
I would recommend him to anyone wanting a breast augmentation.

Pros: Professional, good location, skilled surgeon

Cons: none!

Dr Rios was recommended to me by a friend who said he did excellent work and had a great bed side manner. All of which are true, but I still wanted to do my own research to make sure I was dealing with an experienced, well qualified Dr. to perform my breast augmentation. I chose to go with Dr. Rios because of of the credible information and positive feedback that I found on the internet. I am extremely happy with my decision and the excellent outcome of my breast augmentation. I appreciated his knowledgeable, honest advice, which he was right on, about everything I asked. The recovery time was very minimal, which he is known for, and I was able to return to work the next day with little discomfort. I am still amazed at how quick the recovery process was and with no prescription drugs.

I have wanted a tummy tuck forever! Good friends who are both doctors recommended Dr. Rios. It was a little more of a distance for me, but I went for the consultation anyway. I'm so glad that I did. I immediately felt very comfortable with Dr. Rios, and the office atmosphere is very friendly. When ever I come in for follow-up visits, I always see Dr. Rios (not an assistant), that means alot to me. My results are beautiful! My stomach looks better know than when I was 18. I cannot say enough about Dr. Rios. If I ever have another procedure done, he will be the doctor I see.

I was contemplating breast augmentation for 5 years before I got up the courage to find a doctor. I finally found a doctor nearby, in Joliet, and set up my first consultation. I have to admit I was nervous at first, but he was friendly and honest about every little thing. After the first consultation, you have to set up a second consultation, just to make sure you are really going to go through with it. I think this is a smart idea, since surgery is a major deal. I finally had my surgery on February 24, 2009 and it was the best decision I ever made. I was in pain, but it wasn't unbearable. I didn't have any drains or pumps and I was told to take Motrin for pain - no drugs! All in all, I've had an excellent outcome and am so happy I stuck with Dr. Rios.

I thought about breast augmentation for many years. After seeing an advertisement by Dr. Rios stating that his approach to augmentation was not like others I became curious. The newspaper ad indicated there would not be a need for pain pills, there would be no drains, or a long recovery time. Yeah right! \r
So I attended an informational session Dr. Rios and his wife hosted in 2007. After listening to him and meeting him I felt like I had found the right man for the job and never even considered consulting with another physician. I waited a few more months before I made an appointment for a ""free"" consultation. I was prepared with many questions all of which were answered. I made at least one more appointment (no charge) before I made the decision to go forward with the surgery. Dr. Rios listened to my expectations and provided professional guidance when necessary. My original surgery date was August of 2008 but I had an abnormal mammogram which required a biopsy. After the results of the biopsy came back negative I rescheduled my surgery for November 2008. It has been one year now and I have never regretted my decision or my choice of physician. The results were exactly what I wanted and it is true there were no heavy bandages, drains or a necessity for pain pills. He even sent flowers to me after my surgery. I couldn't be happier. Dr. Rios is not only the best choice, he is the only choice!

After contemplating breast augmentations for 8 years and consulting with 3 different plastic surgeons to no avail an acquaintance gave me Dr Jose Rios's card. I actually held onto the card for 3 years and finally made a decision in August 2009 to call for a consultation after viewing the website (several times). The consultation was thorough and Dr. Rios takes the time to thoroughly get to know the person before becoming the patient and encourages a second consultation. The procedure was everything he informed me it would be , painless (I only took Motrin if needed ) and virtually scarless. I was fully mobile by day 2 ( able to drive) and now it has been 6 weeks . I feel great and wish I had met Dr Rios 8 years ago.
