. I will say this first that all staff that works in the office is so amazing. As for Dr Caridi my first meet with him went great and I just knew he was the one. I had two kids and breast fed both so had the saggy boobs at age 27 and just wanted to look my age and feel good about myself again. So after our meeting and choosing the size that was to fill in my skin I wanted we schedule surgery and went through it all. Afterwards I noticed that my boobs were bigger but still saggy skin on the bottom and for spending around 7,600.00 I was very upset as I wanted to have no saggy skin as I mentioned. So I made another appointment with him and he suggested that I go to a bigger size and that I would just have to pay for new implants and meds to be put under. So of course I want to fix it and am a little disappointed in having to pay for it all again. So I had to pay roughly a little over 4,000.00. I have now spent almost 12,000.00 and after recovery notice that my right boob is a lot higher than my left boob. I also notice that my boob are not proportioned in the center but Dr Caridi said that due to my ribs that was the closest he could get them to be together. So I schedule an appointment to go in and have him look at my breast that is noticeably higher. He tells me that I need to help push the implant down and should notice a difference after a couple weeks. So then I call and ask about maybe trying the breast band to help it set down and they thought I already tried that which I had found out about it from my sis-n-law. After a month no change so he says to come back in. I go in and he tells me that he will have to open me up again and lower the pocket, but that he will do it all for free. Well I hope so after spending 12,000.00 with him. So I am freaking out that I am having to be cut open 3 times now for something that should have been done the first time. So as he leaves the office he then turns and says something but I couldn't make it out so I ask Becky who was their with me to schedule the surgery and go over it all and she said oh he said since he is doing it for free you can but him tequila or a good bottle of wine. I probably would have laughed it off and he was probably joking but after all this trouble the last thing I need to hear is that. So after scheduling with him I start to have doubts of letting him fix it as the first two times weren't the best so why would this time be? So I then emailed him and wasnt a friendly email to shorten it I told him my concerns and he told me I need to get a second opinion. So I then thought ok well I will let him fix them but all friends and family were concerned as it could just get worse so I then thought hey why not. I had scheduled an apt with another Dr, but he had an accident and so i went with my second choice. I had friends of friends use him and I referred my sis-n-law to him as of all that had happened with Dr. Caridi. So I had my apt and he was so helpful and concerned for my look. He then asked about my breast being so far apart and I mentioned about Dr. Caridi saying you couldnt get them any closer and he said that he would be able to. He said he would lower pockets and pull muscle and stitch on sides to bring breast closer together like they should be. Even Dr. Moseirs nurse mentioned that after having kids women would need a bigger implant to fill in all the stretched out skin. He then mentioned that my implants still were a little small as the skin still sagged a little bit so I decided to go a tad bigger to 500cc to fill them in completely like I wanted the first time. This all cost me 8,000.00. So after surgery and all healed I am happy to say that I look and feel great.The sad thing is that it has now cost me almost 20,000.00 and 3 surgeries to finally get what should have been done the first time. I strongly suggest Dr Moseir as he made my life so much better from what Dr. Caridi did. Before I just felt like a freak and scared to wear bathing suit tops. I am now back to being comfortable to be in a bikini with normal looking boobs. I feel as though I got screwed by Dr. Caridi.

Dr. Caridi's eye for detail and artist's soul gives patients a real opportunity to not only correct that which is wrong but also to refine and sculpt the human form. I went to Dr. Caridi for my breast reduction surgery and could not be more pleased with the results. He is an amazing artist but above all a fine physician who cares about the over all health and well being of his patients. He has surrounded himself with angels in his office staff from the lovely Miss Cherry who greets you to Becky and Robin-- the most amazing nurses in the world. They make you feel like you have known them forever as friends. Dr. Caridid also has another angel in his arsenal, Dr. Boysen, a board certified anesthesiologist who took care of me. I was terrified of general anesthesia. Dr. Boysen spent a good hour talking to me and reassuring me. I was also afraid of nausea that can come on the heels of general anesthesia. Dr. Boysen assured me that she has tricks to keep patients from feeling sick after surgery and she was right. It was amazing how good I felt after the operation. During the follow up period Dr. Caridi and his staff were always readily available for any questions or concerns I had. My surgerical results are phenomenal. I would send my daughters to Dr. Caridi if they ever required plastic surgery. Dr. Caridi is a modern day Michelangelo whose medium is the human body. His easy confidence is backed up by genius and a miraculous capacity to take the disfigured and transform it into the lovely. Because of Dr. Caridi, my debilitating self consciousness about my physical deformities have been replaced by an absurd ( and probably annoying) self confidence. God bless him and those sweet and caring angels he works with, they changed my life in wonderful ways.

Dr. Caridi and his staff are amazing. I am so pleased with my results from my tummy tuck and lipo that I can't even put into words my graditude to Dr. Caridi and his staff. I can't believe that it has been six months since my surgery and the results are remarkable. Everything went perfectly. Dr. Caridi and his staff had me well informed and prepared for the surgery. There was little discomfort and everything with my recovery went smoothly. The surgery has given me and my family a jump start with a healthy lifestyle. We are eating better and exercising. I want to maintain my new figure. I am wearing a bathing suit in public for the first time in years. Dr. Caridi has given me some much need self confindence and I am so excited about shopping for clothes again. Dr. Caridi and his staff are warming and caring and make you feel so comfortable with your decision to have surgery. They have been very compassionate and helpful with every step of my surgery and recovery.

I had to go last week for a baseline mammogram. The technician was VERY
complimentary of my breast augmentation. 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 some one that sees 300 - 400 breast
a month would!

Dr. Caridi is personable and takes pride in doing good work. Definately the "go-to" doctor for plastic surgery in Austin!!!

Having facial surgery with Dr. Robert Caridi was the best thing I ever did. He is a true master with incredible attention to detail. The facility is not only beautiful and welcoming, but has it's own surgical unit.
The staff is amazing and efficient, I felt as though I were being taken care of by family!

I have worked in Los Angeles in the hair and makeup industry for 30 years on celebrities, and would never let anyone there touch my face! After seeing Dr. Caridi's work repeatedly (all looking completely natural and no sign of scars!) I knew he was "The One" to do my surgery.

This is by far the best thing I have ever done for myself. I feel so rejuvinated! I highly respect and recommend Dr. Caridi and his amazing staff.

My lips look better than Angelina Jolie's! I went to Dr. Diane Boysen at Westlake Plastic Surgery to have permanent make-up and Restylane injected into my lips. My lips are perfectly symmetrical, full and luscious...and a beautiful shade of "baby pink"--morning, day and night. I wake up in the morning and my lips look fabulous. It saves me so much time. No reapplying melted lipstick in my car. I am thrilled. I also recieved Botox injections from Dr. B (as they call her). The staff at Westlake Plastic Surgery treated me like family.

Pros: Great Surgeon With A Great Eye

Cons: None

A few years ago I went to Dr. Robert Caridi to have a consultation. I had been exercising and dieting for nearly two years with a personal trainer and although I was generally in good shape, my hips and thighs were still out of proportion to the rest of my body. He was professional and helpful, pointing out that women's fat deposits were often genetic in nature when they were that out of proportion, and suggested that I consider liposuction to equalize my measurements. I read the materials, did the research and also had a consultiation with his nursing staff, one of which had had the same problem I did and found lipo to be a great way to address it. I underwent the procedure a few weeks later and found everything from the intake procedure to the anesthesiology to be very professional. I went home the same day and after having nearly 8 lbs. of fat removed from my hips and thighs, I was finally one size all over. No more buying separates because I need larger pants than jackets! The recovery was fairly short and the wonderful thing is that the effect is very lasting. Do your homework, but check out Dr. Caridi if you are looking for a good, confident surgeon with a lot of experience.
