Feeling Awesome After Surgery!

5 5 1
I had an excellent experience. I'm super happy with the results!!! When I did my research, some of my friends who had it done by other doctors either from the US or from Mexico, said it was really painful but they'd do it again. In my case was not painful at all, I had no complications or any discomfort. Dr. Maloney's instructions before and after surgery are pretty simple and clear, they gave me the prescriptions ahead of time, some of them I not even took them because it was no pain. The idea of staying at home for at least a week or not standing or sitting straight was not the case. I had my surgery on a Wednesday, went home, walked around the house slowly but normal with my back straight, And then, on Monday went back to work. Nine days after the surgery a road trip for 12 hours, with no issues. Dr. Maloney and his staff are awesome, every time I've been at his office they are very friendly and professional. Thank you so much!

I had a mommy makeover 4 weeks. Dr. Maloney and his staff were so kind and made me feel confident and comfortable throughout the entire process. His work exceeded my expectations and I'd recommend Dr. Maloney to anyone wanting plastic surgery.

Great Honest Plastic Surgeon

5 5 1
I had a wonderful experience and highly recommend. I traveled from California to meet with Dr. Maloney for a breast augmentation. He was very understanding of my requests and answered all of my questions. He completed a 3-D simulation so I would be able to have an idea of what to expect for the outcome. Dr. Maloney even personally called me that evening to check in on me. I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a great honest plastic surgeon. His staff was great, they were friendly and professional. They also made sure I was comfortable with moving forward with my procedure.
