You can’t zip your jeans. You feel like your pooch is pathetic. You want a tummy tuck. But just how much will a tummy tuck cost?

The average cost of a tummy tuck is $6,253, according to 2018 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. But “average” spans a huge range. There are so many other things that factor into the cost of a tummy tuck. The average fee as referenced above does not include anesthesia, operating room facilities or other related expenses. It doesn’t take into consideration how large a person is, or how much fat needs to be removed. You need to be sure to ask questions with anyone you consult with about every cost that isn’t included in a price that seems too good to be true.


Not exactly. Basically, the difference between a full and mini tummy tuck is the length of the incision, thus the amount of skin that can be removed. But you can’t just stroll into a plastic surgeon’s office and say, “Hey, I only want a mini tummy tuck”. Doesn’t work that way. Because of your individual condition, you might not be a good candidate for a mini. If a doctor is all too happy to oblige what is really your desire to save on cost, find another doctor. And it is important to know that insurance won’t cover any of the costs.


“Gee, a tummy tuck costs more than I really want to fork out.” (Need money for Ubers, devices, clothes, restaurants…the list goes on…) So what are the alternatives to getting a tummy tuck?  Cool Sculpting supposedly works miracles. Must cost less. Right? Nope. Cool Sculpting is based on the amount of fat you want zapped. Which could be a lot. Which could hike the price. While Cool Sculpting might seem like it would cost less, it also does way less than a tummy tuck. And contrary to all the hype, the fat zapped with Cool Sculpting won’t disappear immediately. Patients might look the exact same after days, weeks and even months of the procedure. And the results can last less than six months. Oh, and it doesn’t work if you are really overweight. Not so cool.


You really want to get rid of that inner tube around your middle? Blast that beer belly for less than a tummy tuck? Are you ready? The average cost of liposuction can range from $4,000 to $8,000. What??? Again, that doesn’t include all the other costs we mentioned that figure into the cost of a tummy tuck. And if you’re hoping to get tummy tuck-like results, you’re out of luck. Lipo won’t do anything to address the sagging skin or underlying muscle separation the tummy tuck targets.


Medical Tourism is hot, with people hoping to save money by combining a little R&R with a tummy tuck. They’re going everywhere to keep the cost of a tummy tuck down; Brazil, Japan, Italy, Mexico, Russia (yep), India, Turkey, Germany and France. But before you whip out that passport figuring you’ll also get miles with a cheaper tummy tuck, beware. An overseas bargain can turn into a financial nightmare. There are vastly different standards in other countries for training and accreditation than there are in the United States. What is and isn’t acceptable to take place in the operating room will be different as well. Safety protocols could be deficient or nonexistent, and that is not something you want to risk. Plus traveling soon after a big operation can lead to complications as well. Not only can it cause fresh incisions to tear open, but it also can increase the risk of blood clots. You’ll pay for your foreign tummy tuck in more ways than one.


A tummy tuck is surgery. Plain and simple. And as with any surgery, it requires a surgeon who is not only board-certified, but skilled, experienced and trained in the procedure you are getting. Tummy tucks included. In the Denver area, you don’t have to look far to find the best plastic surgeon with all those qualifications, and more. Dr. Thomas A. Narsete. Dr. Narsete has performed hundreds of tummy tucks on every type of tummy out there. Both male and female. He understands what you’re going through and the toll all that excess fat around your middle can take on your self-esteem. He’ll spend time with you, going over the procedure and what you can expect. He won’t promise unrealistic results. Just results that will make you feel better than you could imagine. Make an appointment with Dr. Narsete now. And go from flab to fab.

Boob Job: Bigger Than Ever

The boob job just keeps growing in popularity. Statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons show that breast augmentations were the most popular cosmetic surgical procedure in 2018. Women in their 20s and 30s are the age demographic most likely to undergo breast augmentation. About 47% of breast augmentation patients are between ages of 19-35. Women aged 36-50 -38%. 12 % 51-64. 65 or older-2%. The increase in popularity coincides with national trend of cosmetic procedures in general. In Hollywood, you don’t have to look far to see the obvious. Kate Hudson got a new pair for her 31st birthday. When Mariah Carey started her career in 1993, she sported a B-cup. And now? Did you see the American Billboard Music Awards? How low-cut can you go? Even Victoria Beckham got ‘em, although like so many other celebs vehemently denies it. Hey, before and after’s never lie. It might seem like a Kardashian butt is where it’s at these days, but a perky pair of boobs is far from out of style. So if you’re considering getting a boob job, you’re far from alone.

Sizing Up The Benefits Of Boob Jobs

For many women, flat’s just not where it’s at. Understandable. But there are many other reasons women opt to get breast implants:

  • Looking better with, and without your clothes. Yes, both are important. There are many women who have issues when buying bras, tops, (especially strapless tops) and clingy, sexy dresses. Breast augmentation is a glorious procedure as women can actually get the size they’ve always wanted and those clothing problems are history. What about looking good naked? I think this point is pretty clear. (regardless of age).
  • Increasing positive self-image perception: we all know we have to love ourselves the way we are, period. We are unique and perfect already, and that is something that women considering breast augmentation need to understand before even going to the procedure. So first, you have to love yourself, and realize that a breast augmentation can improve physically the beauty you already own. When we feel in our best we increase our self-esteem and of course, our perception of our image and gain high confidence in the way.
  • Recovering your breast appearance after pregnancy: it’s no secret that having birth can reduce dramatically the breast size and cause breast to sag. With breast augmentation you can recover the way your breasts looked before the pregnancy and even look way better than before!
  • Looking younger as with time: breasts tend to sag: gravity acts up on your breasts with time and make them look saggy and even size changes, so definitely breast augmentation can make older women look and feel younger.
  • Correcting uneven breasts: our body is full of asymmetries and breasts are no exception. However, there are women in which this asymmetry is quite notorious. This procedure can be completely personalized to each patient and place different implant sizes so this asymmetry can be reduced.

You might have reasons that aren’t listed here. Which is more than OK.

Different Boobs, Different Boob Jobs

Breasts come in all shapes and sizes. Let’s look at a few:

  • Asymmetric: one breast is larger than the other; ranges from minor (barely noticeable) to more pronounced
  • Bell shape: generally heavier breasts; narrower at the top, then drastically fuller toward the bottom
  • East west: a gentle slope from top to bottom, but out to the sides; nipples point in opposite directions
  • Side set: a wide space in between the two breasts; nipples point a little more forward than east west
  • Slender: a little wider at the top, narrower at the bottom; generally skinny without a lot of breast tissue
  • Tear drop: similar to bell shape but with a much gentler slope; easily identifiable from the side
  • Round: equally full on top and bottom; often surgically enhanced, but not always

Recognize yourself?

Because of the huge variation and because of each woman’s desire to do something about the pair she was born with, there are a variety of options to achieve each individual goal. There are many types of implants, but let’s look at two of the most popular:

  • Saline breast implants: saline breast implants are filled with sterile salt water. Should the implant shell leak, a saline implant will collapse and the saline will be absorbed and naturally expelled by the body. Saline breast implants provide a uniform shape, firmness and feel, and are FDA-approved for augmentation in women age 18 or older.
  • Silicone implants: silicone breast implants are filled with silicone gel. The gel feels a bit more like natural breast tissue. If the implant leaks, the gel may remain within the implant shell, or may escape into the breast implant pocket. A leaking implant filled with silicone gel will not collapse. Silicone breast implants are FDA-approved for augmentation in women age 22 or older. Many…many…years ago, some people thought they caused auto-immune and other problems. But those claims have long since been discarded.

Implanting Some Knowledge About Boob Jobs

You know you want a boob job, but here are a few things to consider first:

  • Your first breast surgery probably won’t be your last. 

Twenty-five percent of women will need another surgery after 10 years because implants don’t last forever. The implant could begin to leak over time or a “scar shell” could develop around it, warping the shape and causing a need for new implants. Weight loss, pregnancy, and change in preference are other factors that could lead the patient to having another surgery after a few years.

  • You can’t go from small to huge all at once. 

If you’re starting with a small a cup, don’t expect to go up to a DD cup in one procedure. It’s important to set realistic goals. Your body and skin need time to adjust to drastic changes, so a surgeon will likely suggest going up only a couple cup sizes at first, then increasing the implant size over the course of a few years

  • You and your surgeon will decide together which incision choice is best for you

Underarm incision, incision in the crease of the breast (inframammary fold), or through removal of the areola. Your doctor will take into consideration your beginning breast size and shape, breast tissue, and a number of other factors before recommending which options are best for you and your body.

  • Although you can start doing light cardio again after a week, most women will need to limit their exercise for up to 12 weeks.
  • When you first get them they’re huge & feel too big. You think “oh no I went too big.”
  • If your nipples are large, expect your nipples to look larger because they’re being stretched.
  • Right after surgery, some women experience some regret or depression over getting breast implants. This is called the boobie blues, and it typically lasts about 2 days. It’s perfectly normal and something you should be aware about so you don’t freak out after your procedure.

And this is a huge thing to remember:

Surgery won’t fix insecurity.

Ensure Your Boob Job Won’t Be A Bust

Do your homework. Ask around. Get referrals. Get more than one consultation if you want. But we can’t stress this enough; selecting the right surgeon is the most important part of this process. In the Denver area, you don’t have to look any farther than board-certified Dr. Thomas A. Narsete. His experience in performing breast enhancement surgery is unsurpassed, as are his skill and knowledge of what is right for each individual patient. The minute you meet with him, you’ll feel a sense of confidence in moving forward. Dr. Narsete will spend time listening to your concerns and what outcome you hope to achieve. But you can also expect honesty. He will tell you what he thinks will be realistic depending on such things as your size and body frame. With Dr. Narsete, it’s not a matter of “go big or go home”. It’s a matter of giving you soft, natural results you’ll be over-the-moon with. Thinking of getting a boob job? Make an appointment with Dr. Narsete now.

BBL Surgery: The Best A Butt Can Be

The ABC’s Of BBL Surgery

In case you don’t know, BBL stands for Brazilian Butt Lift. BBL surgery is a cosmetic surgery procedure that leads to more youthful, prominent, perky buttocks as well as a more sensual body profile and higher waist line. Sound good? Using liposuction, unwanted fat is removed from selected areas of the body such as love handles, stomach and thighs, and is then, reinjected into the buttocks to create a more contoured, fuller profile. Since the process utilizes your own natural fat, there is little chance for rejection, infection, and other adverse effects. Which can happen with buttocks implants. Getting implants involves opening a slit into the skin and inserting a silicone or saline implant, a process which requires stitches to close the wound and a lengthy recovery period. Not only is BBL surgery your safest option, you butt will look and feel as though you were born with it.

BBL Surgery Can Put Your Rear Into High Gear

A curvy behind is symbolic of youth, health and sensuality.  Age, gravity, heredity and weight fluctuations are common impediments to having the attractive, shapely backside you dream of. A flat backside can make you feel self-conscious, not to mention tank your self-esteem. Endless squats and lunges, even with substantial weights, can’t get the job done. Sorry. Beaches and bathing suits? Forget about it, unless you wear a serious cover up. Fitting clothes and jeans? Forget being able to fill them out. With BBL surgery it’s bye-bye flat and saggy bottom.

BBL Surgery Can Be Flat Out Fabulous

There’s a global butt envy epidemic. It’s easy to get Instagram-envious of the more than generous butts (understatement) of celebrities like JLo and Niki Minaj. And when it comes to firm, fabulous backsides like Kim K’s, the fact is, it’s impossible to keep up with the Kardashians. The important thing about getting BBL surgery is to be realistic about it. The results you’re dreaming about, just might be wrong. It’s all about proportion. Instead of one-size-fits-all, it’s what-size-fits-you to look natural, not overly obvious. With BBL surgery, it’s not just about bigger, but better.

The Dangers Of Getting BBL Surgery Overseas

More and more people are booking cosmetic surgery vacations to get procedures like BBL surgery. In hope of saving money (a lot, they think), they’re hopping on planes to the Dominican Republic, Thailand, Turkey, Poland, Japan, Spain, the Czech Republic and even Slovakia. (Slovakia?) The lure is making people dig out their passports in ever-growing numbers. But buyer beware. The risks far outweigh the fantasies. Not all doctors are board certified. Many use outdated equipment. Who knows if the anesthesiologists are medically qualified? There is little, if any, post op care.  Not to mention that flying back leaves you vulnerable to serious complications and infections no one warned you about. Going overseas to save money? You won’t believe how much it will cost to fix.

Meet The Man Who Makes The Most Out Of BBL Surgery

Board-certified Dr. Thomas A. Narsete. Unlike other cosmetic surgeons in Denver, Dr. Narsete had the opportunity to train with the Brazilian masters who designed the BBL surgery procedure. BBL surgery requires a highly-developed eye for aesthetic detail, and it is critical for a surgeon to have extensive experience in fat transfer techniques. Dr. Narsete only uses advanced surgical technologies and tools. But what you’ll find in your consultation is also a surgeon who understands. Who listens.  From your initial consultation through your recovery, Dr. Narsete is committed to ensuring a positive cosmetic surgery experience. Contact him now about BBL.

BBL surgery? You couldn’t find anyone better.

Plastic Surgery for Men: Under the Radar is Over

Times have changed. So have attitudes. What was once taboo is being talked about. And men aren’t just talking about plastic surgery, they’re doing it. Men know how they want their bodies to look. Wanting to look younger and feel better isn’t just for women anymore.

Think Men Aren’t Getting Plastic Surgery? Think Again.

Statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons show that more than 1.3 million cosmetic procedures were performed on men in 2017 and the numbers have climbed considerably. “Extremely likely to have plastic surgery” is turning to “more than likely” by over 31%.

Plastic Surgery for Millennial Men is on the Rise

You might be surprised that Millennial males are the driving force behind the $15 billion a year plastic surgery industry. Social media is a big part of the reason. Pleasing a partner is another. But 42% of Millennial men cite wanting to remain competitive in their career. Putting on a younger face for a younger workplace is available to them with plastic surgery. And they’re going for it.

Move Over Mommies, it’s Daddy Do Over time

While Mommy Makeovers are a bundled package of treatments that are designed to help restore a mom’s body after experiencing the effects of pregnancy and breastfeeding, a Daddy Do Over can encompass a lot of different procedures and is actually more of a concept than a standard package. As men age, they want to reclaim their bodies and restore the strong and defined appearance time, genetics and lifestyle choices have taken away. Plastic surgery lets them do that.

Where Are Men Getting Plastic Surgery? Everywhere.

Some of the procedures that are popular with men include:

  • Nose jobs
  • Face lifts
  • Brow lifts
  • Chin augmentation
  • Eyelid rejuvenation
  • Liposuction
  • Ear pinning (puts ears closer to head)
  • Tummy tucks

And a really big one–male breast reduction. Bye-bye man boobs.

The Man Who Does Male Plastic Surgery the Best?

Board-certified Dr. Thomas A. Narsete. Choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon is critical to your safety, your comfort and your happiness. If you use a plastic surgeon who isn’t highly skilled in doing surgery on men, you could end up being far from happy. Dr.Narsete has the expertise in knowing exactly how to get results that aren’t feminine looking. Which could easily happen if a surgeon doesn’t have ample experience working on men. So men, if you’re considering getting plastic surgery, call Dr. Narsete for an appointment now. And consider yourself in the hands of the best.

So You’re Thinking About Getting a Nose Job

You’re not alone. More people want to change the shape of their nose today than any time in the past 10 years. Nice to know, but the first thing you’re probably thinking is,” do I need a nose job?” (Or rhinoplasty as it is referred to medically.) There is a big difference between need, and want. Want has to do with how you feel about the nose you have now. If hours and hours of mirror time leave you wanting and distressed, a nose job could help make you feel more confident. It can fix many things: a bump at the bridge of the nose, a nose that is too wide or narrow, a nose that is twisted, a nasal tip which is round, bulbous, fatty, drooping or disproportionate to the rest of the face.

Getting a Deviated Septum Fixed Wouldn’t Be Called a Nose Job

The nose has an aesthetic and functional purpose. A deviated septum, which refers to the functional side, is referred to as septohinoplasty. It refers to surgery on the septum of the nose. The septum is a leading cause of nasal airway obstruction and breathing difficulties, and this type of nose surgery can correct it.

Know This: Nose Jobs Aren’t What They Used to Be

The nature of nose jobs is changing big time. There is a much broader definition today of what is attractive. “Perfection” is in the past. Today’s millennials are opting for a “less is more” philosophy.” It’s not about changing your look, but rather enhancing it. Maintaining your individuality and character, keeping the look that makes “you”, you. Not some celebrity look-alike.

Do Men Get Nose Jobs?

More than ever, gender equality works both ways. And that includes men opting for many different types of plastic surgery, of which nose jobs are at the top of the list. Like women, they want to feel more comfortable in their own skin, and a nose job that can refine what bothers them, can do a lot for their self-esteem. One of the most important aspects of nose jobs in men is to maintain masculinity and not leave them with a feminine appearance. This takes a uniquely trained and experienced plastic surgeon with a keen understanding of this, and the skill to deliver the desired results.

Help! I’m Not Happy with the Old Nose Job I Had

There was a time when Barbi-perfect nose jobs were de rigour. And then there was the ever-popular, and now ever-despised “ski slope” or “button nose.” Each, entirely unnatural. With the notion of “perfection” passé, more and more people are embracing revision nose jobs to correct these, and are returning to plastic surgeons’ offices to regain the facial character they lost. Fortunately, with the right surgeon, the results can become more natural and appealing.

How Much Time Will I Have to Take off Work?

Every individual recovers differently when it comes to the time and healing process. Nose jobs are complex surgical procedures with a surprisingly brief recovery period required before returning to your regular routine. This might be hard to imagine when you see yourself post-surgery. You can expect what might seem shocking swelling and bruising. It would seem hard to envision, but within a week or two, your surgery probably won’t be obvious to the general public. Your surgeon should detail and discuss post-surgery instructions to make the transition as smooth as possible.

How to Be Absolutely Happy with Your Nose Job

Anyone considering a nose job should put consulting with an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon at the top of the priority list. So we’ll make this easy. Make an appointment to see one of the most experienced plastic surgeons in the Denver area; Board-certified Dr. Thomas A. Narsete. Having performed hundreds of nose jobs, his skill is unmatched. Just as important, he has an impeccable aesthetic eye and appreciation for all the nuances of nasal and facial harmony that will bring out all the best features of your face. When you meet with Dr. Narsete, he takes the time to answer any questions you have as he firmly believes that an open, frank discussion about motivation and expectations for the end result will greatly impact the success of the procedure. And once you see photos of other patients Dr. Narsete has performed rhinoplasty on, you’ll know you’re in the best hands. With someone you trust.

Call Dr. Narsete for a consultation now.

You’ll be more than happy you did.

Just How Much Can You Expect to Pay for Liposuction?

Of the nearly 1.8 million cosmetic surgical procedures performed in 2017, liposuction was one of the top 5, with approximately 264,354 procedures, up 5 percent from 2016. And the numbers are growing. But there are more important set of numbers people considering having liposuction surgery have, such as what is the cost for liposuction.

“Will I Be Able to Afford Liposuction?”

The cost of liposuction is fraught with more questions than answers. The variance in dollars, can cover a huge range. The first thing to know about the cost of liposuction is that the fees given by every surgeon represent the prices for liposuction surgery for each individual area of the body.  And there are a multitude of areas that liposuction can help.

If you try to find answers on the internet, you’re in for a big surprise. The costs are all over the place. But according to a recent study, here’s a rough estimate from lower end to upper end:

Abdomen$3,000 – $8,000
Arms$2,000 – $5,500
Back (Female)$2,000 – $4,500
Breasts$3,000 – $8,000
Buttocks$2,000 – $5,000
Chin, Cheeks, Jowls, Neck$2,500 – $6,000
Flanks$2,500 – $6,000
Anterior Thighs and Knees$2,500 – $6,000
Inner Thighs and Knees$3,300 – $6,500
Hips/Waist$2,500 -$6,000
Outer Thighs$2,500 – $6,000

But he cost of liposuction isn’t just about the cost of the surgery. For example, it isn’t just one area, but how many areas you want, that have a big determination of cost. And that’s just a start.

There’s More?

Sometimes quite a bit. Often things you never thought about. Additional costs may include:

  • Anesthesia fees
  • Hospital or surgical facility costs
  • Medical tests
  • Post-surgery garments
  • Post-surgery care and follow up
  • Prescriptions for medication
  • Surgeon’s fees
  • The surgeon’s experience
  • Body types-larger patients usually mean larger costs
  • Interestingly, very thin patients with only a small area to address can also take longer because of the finer instrumentation required to achieve a smooth contour
  • The amount of time you’re in surgery

Whew! Who knew?

Is there any way to cut the costs of liposuction? Right away people are positive that they must be able to find a surgeon who can do what they want for a lot less. The internet is loaded with surgeons offering low prices and huge savings. You could get dizzy, lost in a Google frenzy. The options seem endless. But just who are these surgeons and what do you know about them? Who can you trust? It’s your body after all.

Before You Leap to Find A Way to Make Liposuction Cost Less, Consider This Caveat: Cut-rate prices can lead to cut- rate results. If the initial cosmetic results of the surgeon you chose merely based on cost are so bad that another surgeon must be paid to repair the work of the first liposuction surgeon, the costs can end up soaring.  And things can absolutely go wrong with the wrong surgeon. Among the most common undesirable outcomes of liposuction are 1) incomplete liposuction with very little evidence that liposuction was actually done, 2) excessive liposuction producing an unnatural or disfigured appearance, 3) irregular and uneven results with unsightly depressions in the skin, and 4) large scars that reveal that the patient has had liposuction.

Can Going to Another Country Make Liposuction More Affordable?

Getting out your passport and booking a Lipo Surgery Vacation might actually end up most expensive of all. Yet, based on promises of lower costs, many people are flocking to places from Cancun to Guadalajara to Tijuana to the Dominican Republic, and yes, even South Korea, Prague, Turkey, Istanbul and Poland.  But liposuction standards for training and accreditation fluctuate around the world. You’re taking a huge risk. You talk to someone on the phone and get lured to let what could even be a non-licensed surgeon (or maybe not a surgeon at all) do the surgery. But beware; there is no follow-up care (and liposuction needs some healing time) which has led to repeated reports of complications resulting on the flight home and serious infections from bacteria that can cost as much as $18,000 to treat.

Is Liposuction Worth the Cost?

The real question, is whether you feel like you’re worth it. While liposuction isn’t a weight loss procedure, the self-confidence that comes from getting rid of those unsightly fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise, can be priceless. How you look is linked to how you feel. The more your body is contoured, the more your self-esteem grows. Just ask the growing number of both women and men getting liposuction surgery how they feel about it.

If You’re Going to Do It, Start by Find the Surgeon Who’s Really Worth It.

In the Denver area, that decision is easy; Dr. Thomas A. Narsete. Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (which is crucial when choosing a surgeon to perform any plastic surgery procedure), Dr. Narsete has years of experience performing liposuction surgery on hundreds of patients, each with their own specific needs. His technique is unmatched as is his eye for the aesthetics of each outcome. With concern and care, he treats every patient like his only patient, there for you from your first consultation throughout the entire process until you see results that are worth more than you can say.

Because Liposuction is considered to be elective, most insurance providers will not cover the costs. To help make liposuction affordable and accessible for everyone, Dr. Narsete offers financing options which can be discussed during your consultation. For your convenience, Dr. Narsete accepts cash and all major credit cards. Financing options via LendingUSA are also available. In every way, he has your best interests at heart. Start by making a free consultation with Dr. Narsete today. Once you meet with him you’ll understand that money alone cannot determine the true worth of some things.

How to Find the Best Plastic Surgeon in Denver?

Let’s Start at The Beginning.

There’s something about your face or body that’s been bothering you. Something you’d like to change. You’ve been considering plastic surgery, but finding the best plastic surgeon in Denver to do the procedure can be not just frustrating, but kind of scary when you realize how much there is to consider with the choice you ultimately make. That choice will be a choice you live with for years, if not your entire life. A successful procedure will make you feel more like yourself and give you greater confidence for years to come. On the other hand, ending up in the hands of an inexperienced surgeon increases your chances of having poor results, which can lead to additional costs, time, and yes, even heartache.

No Thank You.

Here’s the Big Question…

You want the best plastic surgeon in Denver…no, you demand it… but how do go about finding them? The process can be overwhelming. There are so many choices. So many claims. You feel lost. You’re left with endless questions.

Let Us Make It Easier for You.

The key to choosing the best plastic surgeon, is choosing a plastic surgeon who’s board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). Period. The ABPS’s website has an online database and a search engine that lets you look up whether or not the doctor you’re considering is board-certified for plastic surgery. The ABPS’s membership prerequisites are strict and include training and board certification requirements, so all members are vetted to perform both reconstructive and cosmetic surgery.

Proceed with Caution.

Alas, the government does not require a surgeon to be specifically trained in the procedures they offer. The problem with plastic surgery is that you have a lot of other specialists – primary care physicians, podiatrists, dermatologists, even gynecologists, engaging in plastic surgical procedures after having taken a weekend course to learn how to do a breast augmentation, for example. These practitioners then hang out a shingle and start operating on people, touting their experience and expertise, when it is really a case of jumping on the cosmetic surgery bandwagon in pursuit of greater profits.

“You’re Kidding?” We Wish.

And just because some may claim they’re board certified on their website, doesn’t certify the validity of the claim. As we’ve said, check it out on the ABPS website. And just because someone is board certified, doesn’t ensure they’re the best. Finding the best plastic surgeon takes some more work. (If it seems like a lot, remember, there’s a lot riding on it).

So Where Do You Go from There?

You want the best plastic surgeon in Denver?

Do some due diligence.

Ask around. Look around. Get references. Personal recommendations are important. Ask friends for referrals if they have gotten a similar procedure. Get opinions from your family doctor and other doctor acquaintances. (You want to do this right, right?) Narrow it down to a few who have extensive experience in the procedure you’re considering. Some plastic surgeons specialize in breast surgery, for example. And do little else. Not what you’re looking for if you’re considering a facelift.

Make Multiple Consultations. Come Prepared.

Once you meet with a potential plastic surgeon, it’s smart to go into the appointment armed with a list of questions to ask the surgeon while you’re face-to-face. Take this very seriously, treating every consultation and interview like a job interview. Only you’re the interviewer. Details. You want the best plastic surgeon? You want details.

So Just What Questions Should You Be Asking, You Ask? 

Here’s a checklist that could help:

  • Does the surgeon have hospital privileges? (Like asking about being board certified, this is also a biggie.)
  • How many years of experience do they have?
  • Does the surgeon have experience in the procedure you are considering?
  • How many times have they performed this procedure?
  • Do the surgeon’s results for the procedure you want appeal to you personally? Time to ask to see photos. Not just all photos, but those showing results on patients with similar concerns who look like you. Not every patient is the same.
  • Do I feel like I can trust this surgeon to recommend what’s safe and right for me?
  • Do I feel comfortable disclosing my full medical history to this surgeon?
  • Will I receive written post-op instructions?
  • Do I like spending time with this surgeon?
  • Do I feel comfortable asking the surgeon any questions I might have throughout the process?
  • Does this surgeon stay current with advanced techniques?
  • Do I get helpful materials that fully prepare me for the risks and realities of surgery and recovery?
  • Is follow-up care after the surgery included?
  • Don’t be afraid to take notes.

The Best Plastic Surgeon in Denver?

At this point we can positively tell you that one of the very best plastic surgeons in Denver, is Dr. Thomas A. Narsete, MD.

Amazing Doctor... one in a billion... I’m so lucky!Real Self

Dr. Narsete is Phenomenal, honest, direct and sweet! I felt very confident and comfortable with him. Being new to the Denver area I have a went to six surgeons and I found him to be the most honest and artistic and the work I wanted to do to my face. The face is focal point and it needs an artistic and a precise hand to do the work! He took the time to go over the procedure and pictures answered all my many questions about the procedure itself delete the surgery and recovery time.

Phenomenal, honest, direct and sweet!#

Dr. Narsete is a maestro with the scalpel! I am extremely pleased with the nipple reduction and scar revision surgery he performed. He understood what I was looking to achieve and was able to get the look I desire. His staff was fabulous and the entire process from consultation to post-op care was very well handled. I would recommend this surgeon to anyone else. Thank you again!

Maestro with the scalpel!#

Lip Augmentation – I just want it to look natural.

Lip Augmentation (also known as lip augmentation) is a cosmetic procedure that can restore the volume of the lips in both women and men whether they naturally have thinner lips or aging has caused them to lose their plumpness.

O.K., so I have lip envy.

The rest of my body I’m totally O.K. with. But my lips are really thin and it really bothers me. It always has. Looking in the mirror is like looking at my mother. Her lips are almost nonexistent, too. Heredity stinks. It’s impossible not to notice someone whose full lips light up their whole face. I mean your lips are right there front and center. There’s no hiding them. No matter how many bee-stung beauties endless beauty blogs promise.

My lips are definitely nothing to smile about.

As a single man, skimpy lips look just as unattractive on me as on any woman. Maybe worse. The only thing I had as an option to try and minimize them was growing a beard. Only I have a beard that’s on the skimpy side, too. So it only drew more attention to them. I smile and it makes them look even thinner. Eating out makes them just as thin. Any way you look at them they’re definitely Tinder unworthy.

What’s wrong with wanting to look younger and sexier?

There’s no question fuller lips do both. And I’m not talking fuller like obviously overdone. There’s bigger and then there’s ridiculous. Obvious and overdone. Lip fillers gone wrong. I’ve seen lips that scream “botched!” and it terrifies me. I just want lips that look like I was born with them. Soft and natural. Even enhancing them a little would help. I’m looking for kissable, not crazy.

I’m not trying to look like some Disney Princess.

My lips aren’t just thin. They’re out of proportion and crooked.  The top lip looks like it disappears into my mouth. Sadly, we live in a selfie-world and technology is making face to face even closer. In my case, it’s like a horror story. I’ve spent a small fortune on products supposed “makeup artists” apply and then swear how much better I look. Fairy tales.

The surgeon makes all the difference.

It got to the point I wanted to do something to plump up the volume, so to speak. But I didn’t want to end up with lips that were rock-like or looked like lumpy pillows. So I did some major research. I asked friends for recommendations. I looked online trying to wade through the list of plastic surgeons. I looked at testimonials. And before and after photos. The name that kept coming up, was Dr. Thomas A. Narsete, MD. He made me feel comfortable as soon as I met him. We talked a long time, and Dr. Narsete explained to me that while soft and subtle were important, it was equally important that the size of my lips fit my face perfectly.  I knew then that I had the best surgeon to get the best results. And you should see them now. Let me save you some time. Call Dr. Narsete for an appointment now.

Trust me, you won’t find anyone better.

Neck Contouring Surgery – An Aging Neck Is A Real Drag

Neck Contouring Plastic Surgery can eliminate excess skin and fat, creating a firmer, smoother, better defined and younger looking appearance.

“Caution; Neck Falling”

I’ve been watching it happen starting in my forties; the dreaded droop of the skin on my neck. I wake up hoping it will have miraculously disappeared, but it just seems to keep getting worse. And as my neck sags, so does my self-esteem. I’m too young to feel this old. I don’t want to do the Diane Keaton or Candice Bergen thing, forever wrapping my neck in scarves or wearing an awful lot of obvious high collars. That smooth, taut curve between my neck and jaw, that I used to have, I’ve now come to refer to as “the drop zone”.

“Battle of The Neck Bulge”

Bloated neck, deflated ego. Double chin. (Sometimes more depending on how I hold my head, when my smartphone’s jammed between my ear and shoulder). The only things I post on Instagram are pictures totally devoid of me. Facebook? You think I want my High School or College friends to wonder what happened to me? There’s no hiding where my neck fat’s at. It’s glaring. An unwelcome destroyer of both my dignity and appearance.

“A Beard Just Made Me Look Like A Bigger Turkey”

For some reason, most people don’t think men obsess about their looks as much or as frequently as women. But turkey wattle? You know…the sagging skin under your chin that ruins a good photo, destroys your profile and mockingly screams “gobble gobble”. And as far as I’ve seen, there’s no exercise machine that works your wattle. There wasn’t an angle that added definition to my dramatically diving neck skin. Nothing worked. Age was my neck nemesis. Nothing could hide those hideous jowls.

“If You’re Going to Do It, Do It Right.”

I hated my neck. Period. I hated how lousy it made me feel. How old and unattractive. I had heard that neck surgery could get rid of those disgusting vertical bands and horizontal creases, but surgery? Wasn’t really sure I wanted to go there. So I went the way of every kind of cream and exercise and ludicrous solutions like banana peel masks. Did the problem go away? Do you have to ask?  By this point I knew neck contouring surgery was the only real and lasting solution. But I also knew that if I was going to do it, I had to get the right help. Find the right plastic surgeon who wouldn’t over-do it, so that I’d have to re-do it. Let me save you some time…the right surgeon…no, make that the perfect plastic surgeon in the area, is Dr. Thomas A. Narsete. He not only had years of experience, he had an impeccable eye (check out his before and afters) for what would give me a natural and youthful looking, smoother, tighter, more defined neck. No other surgeon I consulted gave me the confidence to go ahead. Do yourself a favor and call Dr. Narsete for an appointment now.

It couldn’t be more right.

Breast Augmentation – I Kept Waiting for Them to Get Bigger.

Breast Augmentation: also known as augmentation mammoplasty — is a surgical procedure to increase breast size.


My cup never runneth over. Actually, I really don’t need to wear a bra at all (unless I’m doing something sheer.) “A”, is really a joke, a ploy to keep small breasted women feel some sense of false security…a teeny, tiny step above a training bra. Does it bother me? Uh, how about in clothes, bathing suits, and naked? Forget about it. And I’m not just talking about naked-with-a-man-naked. But just looking at myself in the mirror. Which I keep hoping will magically reflect even a “B”.


The world is filled with boob men. Not laughing, ladies? There are more than 430 Hooters locations and franchises around the world. That’s a lot of hooters being served up. There was actually a study that showed waitresses with larger breasts got bigger tips. And you can bet it’s not because of the service. My breasts, on the other hand, are absolutely flauntless. Sporting a pair of gawkable girls isn’t my goal, though. I’d just like a size that I can personally hoot “hooray” for.


After a Google burn out, I discovered a lot of Lilliputian-breast-sized woman like me, think there are ways to increase their bust size naturally. There are certainly a lot of promises being bandied about everywhere that strike hope. Strike out, is more like it. Consider some of these frightening fantasies my search unleashed:

“Tighten Sagging Breast in Just 5 Days Using Toothpaste.” No Joke. So claims a blogger who swears that mixing up a combo of toothpaste, flour, egg whites, and cucumber and applying it to your breasts will firm up your boobs. (Over 3 million views on this one!)

And it goes on…

There’s breast enlargement gum

Breast enlargement patches

Breast enlargement cookies (yes, stop laughing…)

And are you ready for this one? Breast enhancement ringtones for your phone. (Couldn’t make this one up if we tried.) Hopefully, hopefully, “insanity” is what you’re thinking. (You should be.)


You’ll never look like them. You’ll never have their Angels’ breasts, even in your dreams. No matter how much you spend, lingerie still leaves you lacking. Underwires are overrated. Push-ups still need something to push up. And to add insult to injury, you’ll never grace the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition. My breasts will never be runway ready.


I’ve thought a lot about getting my breasts enhanced for a long time. But I have violent fear of the results screaming “fake!!!!”  It would be nice to have men look, but not to make them transfixed on what’s obviously not real. The only real judge I want, is me. Finding the right plastic surgeon was everything. And fortunately I found him – Dr. Thomas A. Narsete. He wasn’t about feeding me false illusions or pushing the “bigger is better” myth on me. He spoke to me about my expectations, and explained how breast implants would look different on every woman, depending on their height and weight. Unlike anyone else I saw for a consult, Dr. Narsete was the only one I trusted to have the eye to know what would look most natural for me. So I had the surgery and loved what I saw. If you feel like I did, call Dr. Narsete for an appointment right now.

It couldn’t get more real.
