"I've continued to have fantastic experiences over the past 15 years with Dr. Hix-Hernandez, Dusky, and Staff. I've been to Beleza for several procedures, big and small, and I've never been disappointed. Top notch facilities and doctors. Highly recommend."



"Panniculectomy and Breast Reduction/lift - Hix-Hernandez changed my life for the better forever! June of 2021 she performed a breast reduction lift. Removing 5pds of breast tissue. I then proceeded to lose 75 pds over the next year. And in July 2023 she performed my panniculectomy. Dr Hix responds. In the days after surgery I texted her early one morning.. and she wrote back within 15 minutes. And She's not afraid of the harder cases.. of which I was one.. my weight was not in check when we did the breast procedure. But she knew it would be life changing for me and said Yes. My healing was flawless. My scaring is minimal. I feel better than I can ever remember. I turned 60 this year! And can never recommend Dr Hix and her team enough."



"Absolutely Exceeded What I Thought Was Even Possible, So So Grateful - I do plan on posting photos [with my tattoos blurred out] once I've healed a little bit more, but for now I just wanted to absolutely rave about my experience with Dr Hix-Hernandez and her team.The tldr: Make the appointment. Go talk to her and her fantastic team. Get an actually reasonable quote for the procedure you're interested in (by no means the "cheapest" but actually reasonable and they take Care Credit!) Get no-nonsense answers to your questions and a realistic understanding of ALL of your options. You will not feel like you're talking to a car salesman; she will not recommend things that she doesn't think you need, she will not try to trick you into thinking you should pay more for something that may not fit your specific desired outcome. She will not question why you want what you want or make you feel like you might regret it. She will not price gouge you. And most importantly, she will do a damned good job.I'll go into more detail about my specific experience if you are either considering explant or specifically considering Dr. Hix-Hernandez in a follow up post, but for those just looking for an initial recommendation I hope my 5 stars speak to that."



"My exeperience was great! The staff was very kind and helpful, as well as Dr.Smith and Dr. Hernandez. They were informative and thorough. My surgery was Sept.1st, and I'm back at work Sept. 12th! So not much downtime which is great! And although I'm not fully healed I can still see some results and So far im pleased. Cant wait to the final results in Dec"



"I cannot say enough about Dr. Staci and her staff, especially Dusky. They listen to your needs/wants and absolutely deliver over and above. They answer all your questions and give precise instructions pre and post-op. My recovery has been great and the results are everything I could have hoped for. Thank you to everyone at Beleza Surgery (from a repeat customer!)"
