The service provided by all was excellent. Everyone went over and beyond to assist my self and endure what my sister had everything she needed to have for a comfortable stay and a successful surgery.
Thank you, thank you for the extra care!!!
May god bless you. All Richly

Hola mi nombre es Lisseth y estoy feliz de la cirugía de busto q me realizo el Dr. Manuel Gutiérrez Romero. Súper contenta!!! muy profesional tanto él como su equipo de trabajo……. encantadores y sobretodo muy profesionales.
My experience from start to finish was excellent. Every one very caring and helpful. The out come is incredible, the doctor to extra time to make sure we got the result that I wanted.
My experience with Dr. Gutierrez was amazing. From my pre-op to post-op appointments. I strongly recommend this office for any procedures you may want have. The staff are very sensitive to the patients’ needs, I felt at home the minute I got here. I have been coming to Dr. Gutierrez since 2005 and I plan to continue coming to back when I am ready for my next enhancement.
This was the most amazing experience I could have ever imagined!!! The price was very very good especially compared to the doctors in the United States and the work is just as good if not better. All of the reviews about bad surgical experiences in Mexico should be forgotten and erased when it comes to Dr. Manuel Gutierrez. He has an amazing bedside manner, very cheerful and happy, explains everything thoroughly and safety is his first and main concern. I will definitely be back and will bring others with me.
“I had a neck and eye lift done by Dr. Gutierrez in June 2013 and it went very well. I’m 68 people and people say I look 54, so I couldn't be happier with the results. Manuel is a great surgeon, an artist really, but more than that, he's a great person, and he and his staff make you feel like you’re a member of their family, and while you’re there, you are! It’s like you’re home really, and the normal anxiety one feels over this kind of surgery, especially in another country, simply disappears. I welcome anyone to call me so I can share more good things about Manuel and his staff. I guess you could say I’m a fan, and for good reason, he has many!”
I'd like to say that "First", Plastic Surgery was never for me. I was a fat person...Literally, a FIT\FAT person. My starting weight was 230lbs and my 1st Surgery weight was 147lbs. So you can understand what I mean by Fit\Fat - I use to run up to 30 miles a week at my heavy weight.
As I matured I had health issues that took a toll on my body, so I lost 83lbs and looked in the mirror and couldn't recognize, much less liked what I saw. My breast looked like an 85 y.o. woman. My tummy sagged even more than normal. Twenty-Five years ago I had a C-Section and always wanted a tummy tuck, but never could afford one so I dealt with what I saw. Back then, Surgery was for the STARS!
I earned a promotion at my job which allowed me a larger spending allowance. At first chance I started saving and speaking to doctors online. I had a VSG approximately 1.5 years ago in Mexicali, MX. I was treated so well there, that I asked myself -- "Self - Why not go back for Plastic Surgery?"
Of course, I answered "I must find a good reputable doctor", because I didn't want any mishaps. I tried to go to the same location\hospital where I got my VSG -- but they weren't performing Plastic Surgeries yet.
I came onto a weightloss website, and then moved over to the infamous video site. I ran across Dr. Guiterrez's profile. I sent in an email to his personal account and was pleasantly surprised that he contacted back directly. He began to ask me general questions and then stated that he would need to see photos for a more accurate decision of my needs.
Of course, I was leery (sending nude photos over the internet), but I prayed and took a chance -- left my phone number as requested.
Instead of him emailing me back, I was shocked that I had gotten a call from him. We spoken for an ample amount of time to the point that I was more concerned for him needing to see\speak to other patients. I was concerned that I was taking up too much of his time...hahha He said, "I am speaking to you right now. I will take care of everyone just fine".
He made me feel like I was his only patient. Even in person. When I got to the airport I was picked up as promised -- taken to my hotel and visited the doctor the next morning. I had a consultation and surgery shortly thereafter. I was super suprised with my results! I had gotten a Breast Lift\Augmentation with Implants.
When I finally got to see them for myself - I thought "They are too big...lol" But he assured me the swelling will go down and they will be the size I wanted -- and they did. They are perfect now! (And I am only 6 months out.)
Well, with the great results of my Breast job, I wanted a Tummy Tuck to follow. I went back to Dr. Gutierrez 6 months later and I am in the process of healing now. All I can say is wow!...WOW! My body is looking great! I've always loved my curves, but now...I adore what I see in the mirror. I ACTUALLY LIKE LOOKING AT ME!
I plan to see the doctor one more time to finish the last touch-ups on my expectations. Why am I going so much you might ask? Bottom Line - HE's AFFORABLE!!
I did ask the doctor to do it all at once, but he was right. If you allow the body to heal after one surgery you can get better results for the next. And this is what I've done.
Ohhh and Ladies -- Have I mentioned how Handsome he is??? <This is my little secret>, but yes he is -- so it's not sooo bad getting cut on by a handsome doctor who can do nothing worse than to make you smile\laugh while getting prepared for your surgery to ease your nerves.
I would reference Dr. Manual Gutierrez and his Staff any day! The women there are so nice, that I had to show my appreciate after my 2nd visit. No Clinic has taken better care of me then they have.
Here's to looking good and great expectations! (Good Luck To You All)

I highly recommend Dr. Manuel Gutierrez. I am very happy with the results of my surgery. He is a professional and highly skilled plastic surgeon and artist as well. My husband and I met with Dr. Gutierrez for my consultation. We were so impressed with him that I decided to look no further and undoubtedly chose him to do my procedures. His professionalism and the ways in which he explained everything made me feel at ease. He answered all of my questions with kindness and patience. I love how he transformed the areas of my body that I felt so insecure about. Dr. Gutierrez helped me achieved what I wanted and more.
My husband and I would also like to thank Dr. Harris, the reception desk staff, the office staff and Nurse Sarita. Everyone made us feel very much at home.
My entire experience (from consultation to post op) exceeded my expectations. I would recommend Dr. Gutierrez to anyone considering plastic surgery. Dr. Gutierrez is wonderful!
Thank you Dr. Gutierrez!

If you are like I was, you are searching for plastic surgery procedures in another country as an alternative to the very expensive procedures in the United States. When I decided about three months ago to look seriously at having a facelift, I first visited a plastic surgeon in Tampa who had done some reconstruction on my ear many years ago. After hearing his quote for a facelift and neck lift, with nothing being done to the eyes or the brow, I decided to look at alternatives in other countries.
I began researching in Panama and Costa Rica. Although the facilities looked good, the pricing still seemed relatively high to me. Although I had some misgivings about looking in Mexico because of all the bad press it gets here in the States, I decided to “have a look.” I "googled” plastic surgeons in Mexico and Dr. Manuel Gutierrez popped up. I went to his website and read through it and watched the videos. I was impressed by the thoroughness of the information, his credentials and especially his manner (on videos) of explaining how he worked with patients and what his procedures would involve.
I called his office and talked to his staff then I talked to Dr. Gutierrez. As questions came up over the next week, I called the office back. I was always impressed by the time he took to address any questions and assuage any concerns that I had. Thus, I went ahead and booked my surgery.
I flew into San Diego and the next morning was picked up by Dr. Gutierrez’ driver. From the moment I walked into his clinic, I was treated very well by the entire staff. I was impressed by their professionalism and their concern for my well-being. I met with Dr. Gutierrez in his office for a final consultation. After that I was prepped and went into surgery.
I spent one night in the clinic then transferred to a recovery center/home where I spent a week. Because of the "wear and tear" on the body from a full facelift (brow, eyes, face and neck), I would highly recommend spending that first night in the clinic and spending that week in a recovery center. My doctor in the States was going to perform the procedure then send me home with some pain pills (I think that is a disservice to the patient). On the seventh day I was back in the medical clinic, had my stitches taken out, then the clinic driver took me back to the San Diego airport.
I am six weeks out from the procedure now and am very pleased with the results. It definitely took years off of my appearance. However, when I look at the before and after pictures, I don't think they convey the differences very well. I think the changes are more pronounced in person.
In summary, if you are looking for a top notch plastic surgeon with modern facilities and attentive staff as well as affordable rates for procedures, then I would look no further than Dr. Gutierrez. I believe you will be more than satisfied as I have been.

Dr. Gutierrez and staff:
I had to write to say thank you for my new lease on life. I was feeling tired and old! I had begun to act out both. After receiving my
refreshing new younger look created by Dr. Gutierrez I walk with my head held high and feel as though I'm wearing the most beautiful diamond necklace! I can't express my gratitude enough for what you have done for me.
You and your loving staff gave me the attention and care to ease all my concerns. I will tell my friends that I believe and it easily evident that Dr. Gutierrez and staff are deeply concerned about my concerns and PAINLESSLY resolved the issues I wanted resolved. Dr. Gutierrez and Dr. Harris worked together like a hand in glove. Dr. Gutierrez is an artist.
Thank you, thank you.
Most sincerely, Barbara Hardy

Best doctor ever and thats no lie! In some days to come I\'m going to post a video about him and his staff and my b4 and after photos! Him and his staff help out kids for free! Hes kind of like and angel...
Dear Dr. Gutierrez and Staff
I want to take this opportunity to tell you how pleased I am with the results of my recent surgery. After many month of research and being told I was making a mistake going to Mexico for my surgery, \"NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH\". From the day I was picked up at the airport by your driver Fernando to the day I left, I felt very safe. Your staff was so pleasant and kind, I felt like I was at home. I was so pleased with your bedside manner and caring attitude. My results are very natural looking, and if I say so myself, I look years younger and finally have a butt. Again, thank you for your talanted hands and see you at my next procedure. Feel free to give my phone # if requested.а

"Dr. Manuel Gutierrez is the best. I had an excellent result. His Patient Coordinators are so helpful and sweet. His nurses and staff are great. I live in the US and it was scary at first finding a Dr. in another country, but you have nothing to worry about with Dr. Gutierrez. He really, really cares about you, your result, and your welfare. You can see his office from the border. It's only a very short walk (less than a half a block). He really pampers you and wants you to be safe. Depending on your surgery, his fees include spending the night and his nurses take the best care of you all night, bringing you ice and your medication. He has a driver and this is a fabulous service so you don't have to worry. He is truly a wonderful person and an excellent surgeon. I think with Dr. Manuel Gutierrez, you are more pampered and taken better care of your first 24 hours than in the US. I love Dr Gutierrez and have recommended him to family, because I know they will have an amazing result, be safe, and have first class treatment."

11 years ago my best friend and I got breast implants together on the same day.
Dr. Gutierrez Romero has always been very nice & caring.
From the start of our procedure 11 years ago he has been a dedicated Doctor to his practice & patients. Today I brought another friend with me to get her breast implants, she was amazed with her consultation and Doctor's Gutierrez professionalism and knowledge of breast implants. I highly recommend him to everyone I know who is thinking of getting any type of surgery.
To this day men can not tell if they are real or fake!!!!!!
Hi there ......I would like to thank Dr. Gutierrez and staff for changing my life tremendously!!! My tummy tuck is the best thing i've ever done for myself. For a long time i had that kangaroo pouch in the front (sagging belly). I had to literally tuck and squeeze my stomach in a pair of jeans or an uncomfortable hot girdle. I can go out now with confidence to know that...I AM PRETTY!! He did a great job! The clinic was very clean and safe. I've been to Tijuana on 4 separate occasions. I did not know they did lap-bands, so mine was done at a different clinic. But i met a lady there (Dr Gutierrez's clinic) who had hers done there and lost over 100 pounds! I had a arm reduction, a cheek lift, love handles removed, lypo in chin, and hips, my own fat placed under my eyes to rid sunken eye sockets, and of course my favorite...the tummy tuck! I still can't get over how great i look in a snug fitting t-shirt and my Levi's jeans.......If you want to see my progress, you can go to my facebook page at jamaelajennings and i'm also in the Dr's facebook friends....GOODLUCK!!!!!.......................

Nancy and I are very pleased at the results of Dr. Gutierrez’s cosmetic surgery on both of us as well as the treatment we received from the staff. We couldn’t be more pleased. If you want testamonials we would be very happy to do it. Dr. Gutierrez wanted to meet with us after we completely healed up and I have completely healed up and Nancy will soon.
Honestly I haven’t been this excited in years and after having 3 face lifts this was by far the best and the Dr. is the best in my book. No one else will get our business. We have been bragging to friends and hope somehow you will realize more business because of it.
You deserve it!!!

My first surgery (Breast Augmentation) was performed by a top-popular surgeon in Beverly Hills; 2 years later my breast had sagginess and had loose skin. I needed a new surgery to fix my problem; a friend recommended Dr.Gutierrez Romero and I am glad she did.
Not only did Dr. Gutierrez Romero fix my problem with a lift and smaller implants; he made my breast amazing!! Very natural looking, excellent job!!
Ever since my surgery I recommended Dr. Gutierrez to several friends and family, and just like me, they’re completely satisfied and happy with the results.
I AM BEAUTIFUL!!!!!
I don't think I looked this good thirty years ago! I want to thank all of you for your kindness. My experience could not have been any better. Hopefully, Jim and I will be able to come back and visit (or perhaps another procedure?) In just a few months all the numbness went away. One week after my face-lift, I felt comfortable enough to go out in public. Long time friends that did not know that I was getting the procedure saw me a couple months back, it wasn't until I spoke to them that they realized it was me. I was told that they thought it was my younger sister!!! I don't even have a younger sister. I compared school pictures and my last year picture looks more like an "old" lady, side by side it looks like mother and daughter I am the daughter.
I cannot express enough my thanks for your expert care and Dr. Romero's skilled hands and above all desire to create beauty from a very rough piece of clay. I can't wait for you to see the after pictures!!! I am so pleased. All my friends are jealous - Tee Hee
Thank you again. It is nice to know that I received what I was told I would and then some.
Linda L. Pflug
PS: Jim feels like he is going to get arrested. He has been asked if I am his granddaughter!! We both are so pleased. Old age, I have found the fountain of youth and it's in Tijuana

I could not be more pleased with my results from my breast augmentation that I had on Jan 31 2011. I was very nervous about the whole thing, especially going to a different country to have it done. As soon as I met Dr Gutierrez and his wonderful staff my thoughts completely changed! I was very comfortable and I felt safe. It was the best choice I ever made. I look forward to going back in the future, Dr Gutierrez you have changed my life for the better! Thank you so much! You are an amazing doctor, and I recommend you to anyone who is interested in having any kind of procedure done! Thankyou again!
I am Thrilled with the results of my Rhinoplasty, chin augmentation and brow lift. Dr. Manuel Gutierrez is very professional and friendly. I felt very comfortable and confident in his abilities during each of our consultations and every time we spoke via e-mail.
Everyone on his staff is truly wonderful and they made me feel like family.
I highly recommend Dr. Manuel Gutierrez.
Dr. Manuel Gutierrez did a great job on my tummy tuck and liposuction. He continues to show interest in how I am doing each time I see him. I feel confident with his surgical abilities.
I would like to tell you that I am very pleased with my results from my breast Augmentation and face lift performed by Dr. Manuel Gutierrez in December 20th.
I will certainly recommend him with all my friends

I am very thankful to Dr Gutierrez for the fabulous transformation he made in me 4 years ago.
When I came in for consultation the first time, Dr. Gutierrez was able to answer all my concerns regarding the procedure that he was going to perform. I was tired of people telling me that I looked 10 years older than I actually was. I am 50 years old, and after the surgery people think that I am in my early 30’s.
My friends with my appearance were so impressed with my appearance that some of them became Dr. Gutierrez patients and have and have been absolutely satisfied with the results. I completely trust Dr. Gutierrez that I even entrusted my husband to him.
My husband is delighted with the outstanding performance.
Dr. Gutierrez is not only a talented plastic Surgeon, but also a friend that knows how to work with every patient to a personal level.
I am a physician assistant who lives and practices in southern California. I've wanted a breast lift for many years now, and began seriously considering it for about seven years. I have consulted with about six or seven surgeons here in the US, including one who practices in Mexico. As I continued looking for a surgeon and researching the procedure, I came across Dr. Gutierrez's website. I was amazed to see videos of actual surgeries being performed by Dr. Gutierrez, something I'd never seen before. As I continued to browse his website, I learned more about him. Dr. Gutierrez has years of training and experience as a board certified cosmetic surgeon. You can verify this very easily yourself. By reading about him on the website, I was able to get a good idea about his philosophy of practicing medicine. Besides breadth of knowledge and expertise, one of the most important aspects of practicing medicine is the ability to listen, communicate effectively, build rapport, and gain the trust of your patients. After browsing the website, and speaking to Dr. Gutierrez, I quickly realized that he possessed all of these qualities. I felt confident in Dr. Gutierrez, and decided that he would be my surgeon. That month I scheduled my first surgery, a breast lift with augmentation. I expressed to Dr. Gutierrez my concern with scaring, and was astounded to realize after the surgery that he was able to perform the procedure through the nipple and areola without having to make the traditional anchor shaped incision that I dreaded, but was willing to accept in order to have my breast lift. This most certainly exceeded my expectations! I am more than delighted with the outcome of the surgery and the way my breasts look now. In addition to his surgical skills and ability to connect with his patients, Dr. Gutierrez is very artistic and has good eye for aesthetic appeal. He is adept at explaining the procedure, answering questions, and being honest about whether your expectations for the outcome of your surgery are realistic. His staff are very welcoming, and strives to make you as comfortable as possible. The facility is immaculate, as you would expect to find in any hospital or medical practice. Overall I must say that my expectations were exceeded, and I am looking forward to asking Dr. Gutierrez to perform a mini face lift on me in the spring.
PS: You may ask for my e-mail or my phone # for further information
Thank you again so much to all of you for the way you treat your patients. I would have never expected that from anyone.
All of you are so kind and caring.
Love Dr. Gutierrez, I can never thank him enough. I have never in my life met someone as beautiful as him. He has a beautiful heart, because he loves our heavenly father. That is why he is so successful, and he will continue to succeed because of his love for our father and people. It was a great pleasure to have all of you come into my life.
Thanks Ms. G.R.
I had a mommy makeover surgery with Dr. Manuel Gutierrez on August 24th, 2010.
My procedures were very successful my breast are firm and just the way I envisioned them to be. Dr. Gutierrez was very thorough and descriptive regarding each procedure before during and after surgery. He comes highly recommended by me.
I will have 3 more procedures with him over the next two years. I am very thankful to have found him as my surgeon. His staff is very courteous and professional; his driver Fernando was always available to drive us to and from the airport. And the nursing staff was very compassionate.
If you are considering having any cosmetic procedures done at all, I would recommend having Dr. Manuel Gutierrez perform the procedures. He is very knowledgeable. Not to mention that his prices are reasonable.

I would like to describe to you a little bit about my experiences with Dr. Romero and his wonderful staff here at ESTHETICOS in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. Let us start with a little background about myself. All my life I had suffered with Gynecomastia which is an abnormal enlargement of the male breast glands. I have also suffered with excess fat around my belly area which I could never lose no matter how much I exercised or dieted. Finally after so many years of feeling unhappy with how I looked physically, I gathered up the courage to finally go about having surgery to improve my appearance. Naturally I contacted doctors in the local San Francisco Bay Area where I live, and it seemed as though all of the doctors did not have time to meet with me or were not interested with my condition. So I began searching around online and I found Dr. Romero’s office. I emailed his office about my concerns and within 20 minutes Celina had e-mailed me back. I called the office and Celina took the time to listen to me and she understood my fears and concerns as I have never had any kind of plastic surgery before. Because I am very busy and have very little time, Dr. Romero asked me to send some photos of my chest and abdominal areas. He assured me that he could rid the larger male breasts which I have had all my life and that I would be well taken care of in his office.
I still felt nervous about the entire situation, but I did not want to live my life feeling bad about how I looked physically. Within 2 weeks I was in Dr. Romero’s office having my Gynecomastia condition corrected and some lipo on my love handles. When I finally took my bandages off, I could not believe the results. It was amazing. My male breasts were gone as well as my love handles. I was so pleased with my surgery that I returned 6 months later to have a Tummy Tuck. I had spent years wearing baggy jeans and black t-shirts to hide my condition. Now I was buying shirts and jeans of normal sizes as now I did not have anything to hide about my body. The change that I experienced in Dr. Romero’s care, was not just a physical improvement, it was a mental improvement. With a better body, I have never felt so confident in myself and what I can do and accomplish in my life. This change improved my life forever. I feel better, physically, mentally, and feel good about who I am. I am now stronger in every possible way. My greatest regret was having so much fear and self-doubt and not getting surgery done years ago. Don’t let fear stop you from being the person you dream of being. Don’t be afraid of “what could be”. Don’t let fear and negativity stop you from being the person you aspire to be.

I had my tummy tuck procedure in April 2010 The experience was wonderful and very professional. They walked me through step by steps on exactly what was to be done.
The outcome was phenomenal. I love it and recommend anyone who needs this done to have it.
Dr Manuel Gutierrez Romero and the staff were extremely friendly and knowledgeable of the surgery that I have had. I am here Again, seven months later, getting my lipo done and will surely be back again.
This was a life changing surgery for me. But the best and far more Dr. Manuel Gutierrez is the best I have ever imagined!!! Very professional, caring, concerned with your needs and there’s no words to explain what a wonderful surgeon he is. His team is outstanding, his facility is wonderful. The after care was exceptional. I highly recommend Dr. Gutierrez.
He is definitely a 5 star in my book!!!
By the way I look fantastic!!!!
Thank you so much for today. You are an amazing doctor as
well as a genuine person.I will refer my friends/relatives to you.
Looking forward to seeing you soon. I am so pleased with my results.

I WOULD LIKE TO PLACE ON RECORD MY PERSPECTIVE OF DR. GUITERREZ.
I went to see Dr. Gutierrez on the advice of a friend and I had a further appointment with another plastic surgeon that same day. After speaking to the doctor for some time, I was so impressed with his ability to listen to my needs and empathize with them, his totally professional manner, and the cleanliness of his environment and the impact of his own personality that I believed in his expertise and ability and so I immediately cancelled my other appointment and agreed to have the surgery the next day.
My further meetings with Dr. Gutierrez compounded my previous feelings of confidence, ability and empathy from him and I would heartily recommend him without hesitation to anyone seeking plastic surgery.

Dr. Manuel Gutierrez Romero came from a family of doctors. His father was a professor at the UABC medical school for 26 years in the area of infectious disease. His mother is a M.D. in the area of family practice. The passion for medicine and patient care runs in the family and because of this, Dr. Gutierrez enrolled himself in medical school at the age of 18. At this time, he told himself “Someday I will be a plastic and reconstructive surgeon.”
