“I recently decided to have liposuction for belly fat that appeared overnight when I turned fifty. I found it impossible to get rid of no matter what I tried. Dieting didn’t work. Other methods I tried only moved the fat around a little. The only way to permanently get rid of the belly fat was to liposuction it out of my abdomen once and for all.
After researching online for a plastic surgeon, I felt would be the best person for the job, I chose Dr. Rafael Cabrera. To say I was anxious is putting it mildly, yet his staff greeted me with a warm and friendly feeling that instantly put my anxiety at ease. His lovely wife briefed me on what to expect, was detailed in her explanations and thoroughly answered any and all questions I had.
Their operating facility is so cute and so clean and sterile. It’s right there connected to their office area through a hallway that is super private. The lipo was done with precision and care. I also chose to have some of the fat grafted into my facial marionette lines around my mouth. The entire procedure was performed in one morning, recovery time has been a few weeks and the results are spectacular!
The facial grafting took 20 years off of my appearance. The lipo has made it possible to wear clothes I couldn’t even zip up previously. I can finally tuck my blouses in and wear my cute belts.
Dr. Cabrera is a super nice plastics professional, cute, funny and always makes me feel like family. If you have stubborn belly fat you can’t get rid of, believe me, you aren’t alone. Dr. Cabrera can change your life in one day. You’ll love him. He’s fabulous!”

“I wanted to thank you again for the great work you did on my face. When I fill out forms for anything and I put down my birthdate, people are shocked when they realize my age. They usually think I am over 10 years younger. The people who know me and my real age (71) are always telling me how great I look. Most of them don’t know I had a face lift. I didn’t have a facelift to look younger, but to look better, I got both. I couldn’t have asked for better results!!! I will sing your praises to anyone who wants to know.”
“I feel that it is imperative to write you and let you know that you surely were the prefect doctor I came in contact with who treated my Merkel Cell Carcinoma in my leg. It is now 4 ½ months since you diagnosed my cancer condition and due to your prompt action and superb care, I am well on the road to recovery. May God bless you and hopefully may you continue helping many patients recover with the help of your wisdom and superb expertise.”
“Thank you, thank you, thank you for making me look and feel so good. My friends approve! You are an excellent doctor and a good human being. Your door is always open to your patients. Thank you!”
“This has been a great experience in my life and I owe you a big debt of gratitude. You did an amazing job and I really appreciate your excellent bedside manner. I will recommend you to all of my friends and family!”

“I have complete trust in Dr. Cabrera.”
“I truly wanted to take a moment and say thank you! You have been wonderful. You have given me back my life. Thank You for you professionalism and you caring.”
“Once again I would personally like to thank you for the ‘masterpiece’ that you created for me. You are truly a ‘Picasso’ in your field.”

“Just a little note to say thank you to a beautiful person on the inside that makes people beautiful on the outside.”

“With all my heart, I thank you for what you’ve done for me, your brilliance, you dedication and your incredible nurses who helped me through this experience. You healed me and also gave me personal wisdom and awakened my self-confidence and self-worth. Life isn’t easy, but we must plow through and focus on all the beautiful things everyday and make each day worth remembering. It’s about patience and kindness, and it’s hard to have that always, but we are blessed and I am blessed to have you as my doctor. Thank you warmly.

“You have really revitalized my self-esteem.”
“The ability to change one’s appearance is a gift beyond comprehension. Thank you for the extended years you have given to me of a more youthful appearance. It is a gift I enjoy 24/7.”
“Thank you for your patience and understanding. I love what you did for me!”
“Just a note to thank you so very much for your care and expertise. Everyone has asked why I look so much younger and rested! A big THANK YOU to you and I am happy to recommend you to all who have asked me.”
“I could never offer you enough thanks for all you did for me. I remain forever grateful to you. You have very talented hands and did a beautiful job”.
“It is very easy to pass on to friends and family a recommendation of your expertise and excellent results.”
“I want to thank you for your kind care and friendly service. You made this a wonderful experience. I love the new me!”
“Thank you so much – you did a great job! Much love and appreciation”.
” I want to thank you for all your kindness to me this summer when you closed the wound on my forehead several times after I fell. Although you had patients with appointments waiting, you took care of me immediately not only with great skill but also with compassion. You really care about your patients, and I appreciate your talk with me about the necessity of using a walker until the broken foot healed and the orthopedic shoe was no longer needed. I am very pleased with the way my forehead has healed. The scar is miniscule and barely noticeable. I never expected it to look as good as it does, after you had to sew it up three times. I am deeply appreciative of all the care you gave me. Thank you again.”
“I wanted to express my sincere thanks to you in helping me to achieve my cosmetic goals. You have most certainly gone “over and beyond”. I appreciate you and your wonderful staff beyond words.”
“A very BIG Thank You for the incredible success of the “beautification” project”. You said you wanted to deliver more than you promise. WOW! You sure did and I’m now thrilled! You are now “Dr. Hero”! If you can make me look this good, anything is possible.”
“Thank you is not a big enough word to let you know of my appreciation. You gave me back a part of my youth, that I thought was gone forever,with your skilled and talented hands . I am still overwhelmed. So, again, when I’m asked “who did your face” I can only say, Dr. Cabrera, and he’s the best!”.
“You are great at what you do… none better! Subtle, textured, can’t-even-tell work! Thank you for being the best.”
“You are a MENSCH! Thanks for your positive professional attitude! You have a great team.”
“There is never a wrong time to say thank you so much for giving me my face back. As you know, great stress caused me to age ungracefully before my time, and your superb talent made me look so good that when my best friend came to see me, one month later, she stared and stared, until I told her about you. Within two weeks she was on your table with the most beautiful result! It is five years now, and my daughters like to tell me how much younger I look with one chin! Thank you for the splendid care, I am beyond grateful.”
“I couldn’t let another day go by without writing to tell you all how thrilled I am with how I look! I have gotten so many wonderful compliments about the incredible work done by my plastic surgeon and of course they all want to know who he is. I told Dr. Cabrera I will probably send him more clients than he will be able to handle since I work in real estate and know a lot of people!! Anyway, I never would have believed it possible that I could be so happy again with the way I look and I’ll forever be grateful. Thank you all and especially Dr. Cabrera !!”
“I love the work that Dr Cabrera did on me about 2 weeks ago. I am giving out his name to all of my friends and I will be back as needed. He is the best Doctor of any I have been too including Dr. Daniel Mann!!!. Personable, gentle and honest:) Thank you Dr Cabrera.”
"I wanted to thank you and your staff for your patience in taking the time to review all my options and your honesty with me. I can tell you it is a rare find to have a doctor who has the integrity to do the right thing, along with the amazing skill of your work.”
