Breast Augmentation

I am fascinated with the result

I got breast implants and liposuction done, and I am fascinated with the result. I loved the attention and care of their staff in addition to the fact that they have all the necessary hygiene measures. I felt so comfortable and safe.

They are the best

OCC and the Ariel Center are amazing. The staff is dedicated to taking care of the patients that walk through their doors. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. Dr. Illich did my skin removal surgery and did an amazing job. It was very thorough and achieved the best of results. They are the BEST.

Post Bariatric

By far the best…

The service, staff and facilities were phenomenal! The surgery couldn't have gone any better. I've had multiple surgeries in my life and this by far was the best. No pain and no complications. The comfort level was a 10!

Tummy tuck

Thanks for changing my life in so many ways!

They are the best at what they do. Their patient safety standards exceed those in the USA. You will realize that from just doing the pre-op. They even made me quit smoking. No one had been able to accomplish that! Thanks for changing my life in so many ways!
