"My rhinoplasty was on March 16th. Friends of mine worked with Dr. Bustillo and actually studied with him, so he had big recommendations. I had a car accident in November 2014, and my nose was a little crooked towards the left. I wanted this straightened out. So far, I love my results. My nose is extremely straight because that is exactly what I wanted. Dr. Bustillo went extra and removed the little, tiny bump I had. Everything at his office was great. They were very nice and attempted to be extremely informative. "
"I saw Dr. Bustillo for a rhinoplasty. My procedure was in January and I am pleased with my results. I researched online and read a lot about him on RealSelf before making my choice in surgeon. Dr. Bustillo is very pleasant, honest, and doesn’t sugar coat what he can do for you. Now, I feel prettier and more feminine. I was so self-conscious before, but not any longer."
"Dr. Bustillo performed my rhinoplasty on November 20th. He is the only one I had a consultation with, but with my research, I knew I liked his results the best. He is a very friendly doctor. Dr. Bustillo is possibly the most caring doctor I have ever seen before. The appearance of my nose has bothered me since I was a child. When I discovered that I also had a deviated septum, that is finally what pushed me to go forward. Everything is great now. There is not even one thing I can say I like the best. I really like how it looks and that I can breath better."
"I was referred to Dr. Bustillo by a family member because I had trouble breathing and a bump on my nose. I figured if I was ever going to do something about it, it was going to be now. I had a rhinoplasty, septoplasty, and a turbinate reduction on June 18th. Its exceeded my expectations and I mention him to everyone. Dr. Bustillo is everything you would want in a doctor. He is warm, concerned, and detail oriented. Dr. Bustillo also doesn't give you false hope."
"I saw Dr. Bustillo for a rhinoplasty, chin liposuction, and a chin implant on the 11th of May. I found his office by Googling surgeons in Miami. He is a great doctor; really impressive. I like just about everything from my results. Dr. Bustillo told me what the outcome would look like, and everything was point on. I would certainly recommend him to someone else."
"I saw Dr. Bustillo on December 16th for a rhinoplasty. My mom found out about him from a friend of a friend, so that is how I was referred to Dr. Bustillo’s office. Describing him, I would say Dr. Bustillo is very welcoming and cheery. I was always comfortable around him. I am very happy with my results. I was never happy with my old nose, so I am really pleased and confident now that my surgery is done. I had never gone through surgery before, and so I felt like there was a lot of bruising and pain at first. It was hard, but definitely worth it. I will definitely recommend Dr. Bustillo to someone else. "
"I saw Dr. Bustillo on March 26th for a rhinoplasty. After being referred by another doctor, I see that Dr. Bustillo is very nice and thoughtful. He takes his time with you and wants to make sure your needs are met. I am happy with my results so far, mostly the way my nose looks overall. I knew I had a bad deviated septum, but was not ready to go to just anybody to have it fixed. Now, I can breathe better, which helps me in my daily life. I have already recommended Dr. Bustillo to someone else. "
"I saw Dr. Bustillo for a Necklift and a deep line facelift. This was about three months ago. Dr. Bustillo is a great doctor and I’m happy with my results, so far. They look very natural. I didn’t have any pain. I only had about three days of inconvenience, but no pain during my recovery. I have recommended Dr. Bustillo to everybody. He is such a calm doctor. "
"I saw Dr. Bustillo for an upper and lower blepharoplasty. This was about six weeks ago after I found him online. I was looking for doctors with good reviews and I found him. He is a surgeon that takes his time to talk to the patient. He discussed the procedure with me in an easy to understand way. Dr. Bustillo tells you how you’re gong to look and exactly what to expect. I’m very happy so far. I like that my eyes look much better than before. I would 100% recommend Dr. Bustillo to someone else. "
"Dr. Bustillo has very good reviews online and he is who I wanted to do my otoplasty. My ears are something that have been bothering me for a while but financially I wasn't in a position to get it done. I am so happy that I was finally able to do it. Dr. Bustillo has a very good bedside manner. He is knowledgeable, friendly, patient, and honest. His employees were all very helpful, friendly and the office is very organized. I really liked that it looks very neat and clean from the moment you first walk in. I am very happy with my results because it looks very natural. After surgery, there was some discomfort, but there wasn't a lot of pain. I didn't even need to take painkillers. Regardless, I would say the surgery was worth it. He really did a great job though, and I will definitely recommend him to other people. Also, if I was considering any other type of facial cosmetic procedure, I would definitely go back to Dr. Bustillo."
"I broke my nose when I was 18, and had a rhinoplasty, but the first surgeon did a terrible job and I wanted to have reconstructive surgery. On December 12th, I had a reconstructive rhinoplasty with Dr. Bustillo. I originally found his office through a referral from another plastic surgeon. He was not the first surgeon I met with, but I just felt more comfortable with Dr. Bustillo than any of the others. He is more trustworthy than the other doctors, and I liked his demeanor. The consultation wasn't like a sales push. I am pleased with the results I've seen so far. The recovery was very quick and I didn't really have any downtime. "
"I didn't like my nose so I had a rhinoplasty on November 21st. I heard about the doctor through a friend and surprisingly from a magazine on a plane. He was really reassuring, gentle and very clear about everything. After the operation I was in bed for about five days but it was definitely worth it. I love the result. It looks exactly like the computerized image he showed me prior to the surgery, which I love that he shows that because it makes you more confident about having the procedure. "
"I did a little research and found Dr. Bustillo. I liked the pictures and the comments that people wrote about him online. He was the first surgeon I had a consultation with and I didn't feel the need to keep looking because he is great. I had my rhinoplasty and septoplasty on July 17th and the experience was really good. I am very satisfied with my final results. Dr. Bustillo is the best surgeon and he really did a great job with my nose. "
"I want to thank Dr. Bustillo for taking the time to listen to my concerns, understand what results I was looking for, and explain the entire process. I felt that he did not give me the standard rhinoplasty, but gave me a nose that was best suited for me and that looked natural for my face. The office is beautiful and the staff is wonderful! He is the best in Miami. I couldn't have asked for a better experience, thanks to his attention to detail and care for his patients. I would definitely say that Dr. Bustillo goes above and beyond in his care for patients."
"I have heard of Dr. Bustillo's marvelous work from my mother and older sister, both of who had done their noses with him. I had wanted to get a rhinoplasty because I really disliked my nose and that in turn made me terribly self-conscious about it. The doctor was very smart and observant - he definitely knew what he was doing. He was also very detailed in regards to the procedure specifics. The recovery aftermath was essentially a lot of dried blood in my nose, which impeded my normal breathing. But it did get better the second week, and then the third week I was breathing normally. The procedure was absolutely worth it."
"A friend of my dad's son got rhinoplasty with Dr. Bustillo and she told us about him and that he was really good. I’m only 16 but I've always noticed my nose and wanted to have it done. I always thought I would have to wait until I was 18 or in my early 20s. Since my dad’s friend's son had it done I wanted to get it done too and so we started looking into it. Dr. Bustillo is really nice and very calm. He answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable with everything. He was really funny, too. I had my rhinoplasty at the beginning of June and my pain and bruising was minimal. It went so much better than I expected. I was so scared because of the recovery, but honestly it was easy. In like a week I felt perfect. I'm really happy that I got to do this. I was very insecure before and this has made me feel a lot better about myself. I look so different but not really different. It's cool because it's not obvious that I had it done. My friends, especially boy don't really notice and when I tell them they are like "No way!" It’s really cool how it makes a big difference but no one can tell. I have already told so many friends about how great Dr. Bustillo is. The whole thing has been super good. "
"I've had breathing issues my whole life. I went through a sleep study at one point and was gasping for air in my sleep. I also had a bump on my nose that I wanted to take care of. I decided to have a rhinoplasty and septoplasty at the same time. I found Dr. Bustillo on the internet and read a lot of his reviews and saw his before and after pictures. When I met him in person, it just seemed like a really great fit. I really liked his bedside manner and the way he interacts with me. I felt really comfortable with him. He is clearly an expert in his field. He is very kind and a doctor that I trust. His nurses were incredible the day of my surgery. They were very professional and also made me feel really comfortable. I was very nervous and they made me feel good about everything. All of Dr. Bustillo's staff members are very nice and professional. I've only had good experiences with them. It's much easier to breathe through my nose and I've noticed a really big difference. Apparently I've also stopped snoring which is good. The appearance is also much improved. It’s a conservative change and not drastic at all. It looks very natural and I’m happy with it. "
"I had a rhinoplasty with Dr. Bustillo, after another doctor referred me to him. My rhinoplasty actually was a revision surgery because the first time I had it done with another surgeon it looked completely deformed. Dr. Bustillo corrected it and I am very happy with how normal my nose looks now. Dr. Bustillo is very professional and the service was great before and after the surgery. The whole process flowed very well. Before my first appointment with him, the office called me and sent me papers to fill out, so I didn’t have to fill them out when I came in. I always had a response from them every time I asked a question, both before and after my surgery. They would always respond quickly, so it was a good communication system. The surgery in terms, of pain was a little painful, but I mean it’s an invasive surgery so it’s what I expected. Also it was a corrective secondary surgery so it was a little more complicated than an initial rhinoplasty. "
"I had a revision Rhinoplasty with Dr. Bustillo in May 2013. I found him online and when I started reading his blogs, I felt he was very knowledgeable about this subject. His blogs made me feel confident that he knew very much about this subject. I needed to do my revision Rhinoplasty with someone who specializes specifically in this and Dr. Bustillo showed a lot of knowledge. When I visited him he promised me that my results would be natural and that’s what I was looking for. I am 9 months post op now. My experience with his staff was also excellent. They are an extraordinary staff and very kind and professional. They were very attentive to me and my needs. I would recommend him to others. "
"Dr. Bustillo did my revision rhinoplasty and he also repaired the holes in my ears from pierced earrings. I'm from Texas and was trying to find a very highly qualified revision rhinoplasty specialist, which was very difficult. I did lots and lots of research on the web and looked at pictures, training, schooling, and experience. All that led me to Dr. Bustillo. I liked the fact that he's Hispanic, because so am I, and I wanted someone who understood the aesthetics for that specific patient population. We had a very good consult and I agreed with everything he said. He has a strong be conservative approach, which I really like. He's thorough, knowledgeable and professional. I'm in this business and deal with physicians all the time and he has an excellent bedside manner. He's empathetic and great at what he does. Revision rhinoplasty has to be one of the hardest cosmetic surgeries and I was definitely one of his most challenging patients. When he opened me up he said "wow," because I had all kinds of issues going on. I had cartilage poking out and was asymmetric. He took care of and evened out everything as much as possible. I was one of those patients who had too much cartilage scooped out and they had cut in the wrong place. A long portion of my septum was removed and I had structure removed from one side completely. I could go on and on. Dr. Bustillo had to go in there and repair all that. He had to take cartilage from my ear to put back into the tip of my nose just to balance it out and make it look natural again. I'm relieved and so happy because there’s that point of no return and I thought I was there with my nose, but Dr. Bustillo fixed it. I’m kind of a walking poster for his work now. One of my doctors in San Antonio actually asked me about him, because it looks so good and is a subtle difference. Even my recovery was a piece of cake. I've gone through this before and the nice thing about rhinoplasty is that there isn't a lot of pain involved. Everything went very smooth. "
"Dr. Bustillo is a true professional. He is really good at what he does and he is direct. He goes straight to the point. He tells you how it’s going to be and it’s going to be that way. I found him on the internet after doing my research. I read reviews and saw his before and after pictures. I saw that he was one of the best. This is something I needed to do, but didn’t necessarily need to do it right then. I wanted to be sure I choose somebody good. I'm really happy. I think Dr. Bustillo did a perfect job. He fixed the problem that I had. The thing that I had, a revision rhinoplasty, because somebody else did a really bad job and then he came and he did his best to fix it and he did. He left it looking really, really good. My recovery was nothing. It was good. I didn’t have any bruises or anything. His whole team is really good. If I had to tell someone, he is the man. You don’t want to go anywhere else but him first."
"Back in August I had Rhinoplasty and Blepharoplasty done. I was searching the internet for the best surgeons in Miami and Dr. Bustillo’s name came up. This was my first time having plastic surgery, and I researched a lot before I decided where to go. He is not the kind of doctor that pushes you to do more surgery that you wanted to. You come with something in mind and he tells you about it, what to expect and everything. I was nervous, especially nervous about the anesthesia. The anesthesiologist was very nice, and Dr. Bustillo was really awesome. He saw my face and realized that I was freaking out. He held my hand and I remember before I went to sleep that he was still holding my hand. It felt great having somebody hold my hand knowing I was going to be OK. The experience was good even though I was really afraid and I think I felt a lot more pain than is usual. He gave me pain medication, so that was good. He called me after the procedure to see how I was doing, and I came to see him, and all my questions were answered. Everybody in the office was very nice and actually cared. I am very happy that I chose him as my plastic surgeon. My results look natural and my family and people at work tell me I look different, but it didn't show that I have plastic surgery. It's more than I expected. I would one hundred percent, recommend Dr. Bustillo to others. I'm very, very happy with the results."
"Dr. Bustillo is one of the best doctors I've ever known who takes good care of his patients. He is a very talented doctor who knows what he is doing and who will give you very positive results. I am very happy with the results of my Revision Rhinoplasty Dr. Bustillo performed at the end of May. It all looks so very natural - like the nose I was born with. "
"My friends say they have noticed a positive change in me after my Otoplasty surgery was done July 23 by Dr. Bustillo. They tell me how good my ears look now as compared to before the surgery. At first, I was scared about having ear surgery, but everything really turned out fine. I didn't feel any pain at all. I love my ears now and am thankful for having had such an excellent surgeon as I did in Dr. Bustillo. I consider him to be a very kind doctor who cares about his patients. The level of patient care was exceptional. "
"In a word, the results of my Rhinoplasty procedure from March 22 are awesome. What I like most about my new nose is how natural it looks. It's almost as if I never had surgery. Every day my mom will say to me, "Oh, my gosh. I love your nose!" I've already recommended Dr. Bustillo to three people. He's an awesome surgeon."
"I've gotten some good comments from people about my nose following my surgery last August. I was referred to Dr. Bustillo by another doctor, then I reviewed before and after pictures. That really appealed to me. He's super nice and his staff makes you feel welcome."
"Not only were the results of my Rhinoplasty perfect in my opion, Dr. Bustillo and his staff were on top of the recovery process and how I was feeling. They were very nice and concerned about me after my June 7th operation. What I like best about my results is the completely new look of my nose. Dr. Bustillo was very professional. I chose him because of his professional reviews and wasn't disappointed."
"It was a Facelift that I had about two months ago. Since I work in a hospital, I noticed that he usually goes over there to do plastic surgery on occasion on people. That's why I knew that he was one of the best surgeons, so that's why I decided to go with him. Everything was really amazing. One of the things that I really like is when actually the doctor called me the day before the surgery to ask me if I have any questions. Usually, you don't see that. And then, after the surgery, he called me again to see if I had any questions, how I was feeling and everything, which I really liked too. Most of the times, you don't receive any phone calls from the surgeons after or before any surgery. The staff over here was super professional, really on time. If I had an appointment, they're like on top of that. Usually, it's right away which I really liked, too."
"I had a Rhinoplasty on May 3rd. I did a lot of research, and he seemed to be a specialist and had really good reviews online. I came in two weeks prior to meet with him and get everything situated so that I didn't have to come in to the office the day before my procedure. It was pretty good overall. I mean coming out of anesthesia was a bit interesting. I felt like a zombie for like day and then I felt like I looked really freakish for like a day or two and it was a little intense at first. But by day three, there really wasn't a lot of pain, and once the swelling came down it wasn't too bad and from there, it was really pretty smooth. They discharged me, and I had the packing in my nose and he actually came to my house later that day and took the packing out instead of us having to go to the office the next day. That was really helpful because getting the packing out was very uncomfortable. What I did is exactly what I wanted which is like fairly subtle and not something too extreme. Overall, I'm very happy with the result. It's what I wanted. He is very good at what he does, an expert in the field, kind of like mellow, relaxed, soft-spoken, not what you would think of a plastic surgeon."
"I had a Facelift. It was March 15th or something. I'm not sure of the day. He specializes in the face only. Everything was good. I feel comfortable. They're very friendly, and they made me feel OK to do the surgery. They care a lot. They're always in contact with me asking me how I feel and everything was wonderful. The most I like is that I look natural. I can see that I had something done but it's very natural. Everyone knows I did something but they didn't know what it is. I will highly recommend him. I will say that he is the best. They were very nice and I'm pleased with my surgery."
"I’m feeling good after my Rhinoplasty, Septoplasty and Turbinate surgery. It was my first surgery and it was the easiest experience of my life. Dr. Bustillo was very warm and made me feel comfortable. He didn’t beat around the bush at all so I felt like I was in good hands with him. The only thing that hurt was being pricked by the IV. The first day after the procedure I just couldn’t stop smiling! My ego is so big right now when I look in the mirror. I want to dress up and go out and show off! It’s been such a huge booster for me. "
