Dr. Staci Hix-Hernandez is the most amazing person, surgeon, and doctor I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Her whole staff is kind, knowledgeable and very professional. I had a very traumatic childbirth with my last child and I was reminded of that trauma every time I looked down at my stomach. During my consult I never felt like unrealistic expectation were given and I didn’t feel like I was an object that the surgeon couldn’t wait to open and mold. It felt like I was being seen and heard and given a solution all in one. Dr Hix-Hernandez did not ever try to upsell me and refused to do part of the procedure I wanted all at once due to safety issues. She also stated I would get more for my money if I waited to do lipo after the tummy tuck versus doing it all at once. She has sculpted my shape into something I am proud to call my own. Dr Hix-Hernandez also gives you her personal cell phone number and is very responsive after hours during the recovery process. I never felt worried that I would be abandoned if I needed help post operatively. I wish I had done this years ago but I guess then I wouldn’t have been in central Texas at the time so my outcome would have been very different. If this review isn’t persuasive enough then you can also refer to her multiple board certifications in Plastic (not cosmetic because anyone can be a “cosmetic surgeon” if they are an MD) surgery and her vast knowledge in this field. She is fantastic and I urge anyone who is wondering what plastic surgery or cosmetic beauty treatments can do for them then you have to check out Beleza med spa and surgery! More

This is my go to place for Lip Fillers. Ashley is amazing! I love the is place so much, I decided to have Lipo 360/BBL with Dr Smith. Surgery was last week and I’m loving my results so far! Scheduling a consult was super easy, Dusky the surgical coordinator is amazing. She explained everything to me at my consult and after a few days of thinking it over, I went ahead and booked. Sofia was my treatment coordinator, she was great! She answered all my questions and always responded to my calls. The pre-op appt. with Dr. Smith was great. Dr. Smith explained everything from top to bottom in details leaving myself and my husband with few questions. The day of surgery was a breeze. I didn’t catch the names of the Surgical nurse or PA, but they did everything to make sure I was comfortable my entire surgery. Dr Smith is an amazing provider. He did wonders and I’m so pleased and impressed with what I’m seeing so far. Dusky called me the day after surgery and explained everything post operatively in detail what do to from this point forward before my 2 week appt. I will most definitely be scheduling my next surgery at Beleza Medical spa. The communication with this place is spot on, leaving me with no negative remarks. Next year is tummy tuck time! I’m excited to see what Dr. Hix can do. Thank you Dr. Smith and team! Y’all are amazing! More

I had weight loss surgery which was the best decision I have ever made. Having Dr. Hix give me a tummy tuck and lipo to remove the excess skin and fat in unwanted areas was the second. I am so impressed with the level of service I received from her and the whole team at Beleza! My wife was also so impressed she went and had the same procedures done as well. Can’t recommend them enough! More

I went in for a tummy tuck & to have my severely torn abs repaired. The surgery went well (no issues at all) & my recovery process has been stress free. The team was always available to address any questions or concerns I had during my recovery process which gave me a sense of peace. Dr. Hix & the staff have been AMAZING. This was by far my best experience with a medical team! More

Dr Hix-Hernandez is wonderful. My only regret is not going with her in the first place. I went to her for a second opinion after developing a large psuedobursa on my entire abdomen from a tummy tuck by another local plastic surgeon last May. It left me in pain for almost a year along with stinky fluid that would come out of my belly button. I spent so much wasted time and money going back to the other plastic surgeon trying to get my problem fixed. Dr. Hix-Hernandez did a revision and removed the psuedobursa. I was immediately out of pain. My stomach is actually flat and no longer disfigured. My incision 8 days post op already looks way better than my scar that had a year to heal from the previous plastic surgeon. She gives her patients her personal number to call if there are problems. The other place I could only reach my surgeon through his wife/office manager resulting in the mismanagement that put me through a year of hell. Had I gone to Beleza and Dr. Hix-Hernandez in the first place it would have saved me so much money, time away from work, and pain. She is a very skilled surgeon. She cares about her patients. If you are in the Austin area, her long wait list is worth it. My experience with this surgery was so much better compared to the other plastic surgeon. As a nurse, I was extremely impressed with the pre-op and post-op education and follow up at Beleza. Now that I have experienced the professionalism of Dr. Hix-Hernandez’s office it makes me feel like I got my first surgery from a used car salesman. More

I am 4 weeks post-op mommy makeover (breast lift & tummy tuck). I feel GREAT and am loving what I see in the mirror so far. I'm still swelling a little but that is to be expected at this point. My incisions are all healing nicely and are very thin lines. Dr. Hix-Hernandez has been wonderful from the beginning. She gave her personal phone number to call if any problems or concerns came up after surgery. I didn't want to bother her but did have a concern when one breast started bleeding at 2.5 weeks. I called and she answered while shopping in Home Depot. God Bless her!!! She made me feel so much better! I had a hematoma that had broke loose and exited thru the incision below that breast. Two days later at 10:30 at night, not wanting to bother her again by calling, I texted her pictures after I noticed the steristrip had come off the breast that was bleeding and there was a small separation. She immediately text me back! She calmed my nerves so much just by being available when I needed her. She truly cares about her patients and I'm glad I chose her as my doctor. Everything appears to be healing nicely now. More

Had a tummy tuck with muscle repair and lipo to flanks/love handles on 3/11. Could not be happier. Everyone is so nice and welcoming. Dusky is such an amazing nurse. Dr. Hix and Dusky took the best care of me and I never felt worried in their hands. I am very fit but 3 kiddos did a number on me and Dr. Hix gave me my life back. I am forever indebted to her, she is hands down the best plastic surgeon ever. Even though recovery has been painful I would do this 100x over. Thank Dr. Hix More

Tummy Tuck w/ MR - I’m on day 2po and I’m shocked at how minimal the pain is. I’m staying on top of my meds. I was able to get myself to the bathroom by the end of surgery day. I’ll post my befores but I can’t take my binder off for another 2 days. I’ll post those once that happens!Updated on 25 Apr 2019: I slept through my alarm for my pain pill! Woke up feeling ok, I can feel more around my belly but it’s still not painful, just slightly uncomfortable. I’m sleeping in a recliner! My back hurts more than anything. I’m standing mote upright which helps my back! I get to take my binder off either tomorrow or Saturday to check out my new belly!! More

I’ve had the pleasure of meeting with Dr. Hix-Hernandez twice and she will be preforming my surgery in just a few weeks time. I find the doctor to be very friendly and personable. She listened to what I wanted and to what I have planned for her to do in a years time. We are on the same page. The staff are all friendly and my e-mail correspondence has been very efficient, Jennifer has been a godsend at the Cedat Park office, my questions are all answered in a timely manner. I joined the Platinum club $399 and bought some lovely skincare products as well as got information about future facial and skincare services. Such a great deal for services and products! I feel very relaxed and confident that I’m in great hands with Dr. Hix—Hernandez, we have several procedures planned out and I’m looking forward to seeing all of the wonderful results from the mommy makeover. I’m very thankful for her taking on my case and care. I’d also like to mention that another local doctor wanted to charge $10,500 for the same procedure she’s charging me $6,000 for. We added a second procedure and it’s still less than what he wanted for one procedure, and I’m not even doing the full tummy tuck. He then was going to charge me $10,500 to actually do the tummy tuck after the initial first surgery, so $21,000. Dr. Hix was much more reasonable and understood my immediate need to fix a problem after childbirth and then do the tummy tuck after a years time. I was elated not to be overcharged for the first portion which is really a matter of comfort and health and a necessity. She was also generous with offering a military discount for our family. Another pleasant surprise. There are so many good things to mention about her! I can’t thank her enough for taking on my care and fixing this present issue to help me with my goals. I really like Dr. Hix, and it was also nice not to be charged an arm and a leg to see her in the office, that was included in my services, so I didn’t pay any consultation fee’s. She’s been gracious enough to see me twice to go over all of my questions and put my mind st ease. I’m really looking forward to my procedure. I know I’m in great, skilled, masterful hands. Update: I’ve had my procedure and it was marvelous. Painful yes, but the staff was wonderful, the results are fantastic thus far, and Dr. Hix has done a lovely job at transforming my post baby bump into a flat tummy. It’s pretty amazing to look in the mirror and see the results. She is very skilled and the one possible minor issue we discussed has not occurred. My incision has been healing steadily with no issues, or openings, the sutures have stayed intact, I have minimal swelling. I honestly had no idea the results would be this wonderful. Truly magnificent work. Worth every penny to have a skillet surgeon and peace of mind when embarking on such an endeavor. I’m looking forward to the next phase we will proceed with next year. More

Updated on 27 Apr 2019:I was so nervous to look at my belly after spending days looking at others that didn’t look so good. The internet is a crazy place ????. I took off my binder and my mom says “you’re so skinny!” I could feel the swelling but I could also tell I’m going to have curves ???? My pain stays around 1-2 out of 10. Even when I skip my pain meds. And by pain, it’s more just tightness. I’m grateful for a wonderful doctor. Her work is beautiful and she knows what she’s doing. I did have one pain of a 10-I got a tickle in my throat in the shower and it made me cough and I thought my belly was on fire ????. It quickly went away and I hope to never cough for 6 more weeks. Besides that one splat-I’d do this over again in a heart beat. Updated on 3 May 2019:All is still going well! I’m feeling a lot more in my skin-I think some of the nerves are starting to wake up/reconnect or whatever they do! Dr. Said I’m still super swollen! I’m not complaining! Flatter than I’ve been in 10 years :) More

It was an easier recovery but I still needed help after with kids and around the house but definitely not nearly as long as I did with the main procedure. This procedure is what made me love that I did the major surgery! More

Great tummy tuck - Dr. Hix-Hernandez did a great job on my tummy tuck in December 2012. Immediately felt comfortable with her as soon as I met her and she took her time answering all the questions I had. She is professional and takes pride in her work. I had the kangaroo pooch and over four inches of separation on my abdominal muscles from a 70 lb weight gain during pregnancy and she got those really TIGHT. She was honest with me and told me I needed to get to a healthy weight before the surgery, 60 pounds later I was ready. Everything went smoothly and the scar healed to a thin line. Despite some fluctuations in my weight since the surgery, everything has held up really well, providing a long lasting result. This doctor knows what she is doing. More

Weight Loss Caused 40yo to Need a Little 'Pick Me Up' - I was just not happy with how I was looking in the mirror after working so hard to lose weight over a solid 18 months. Decided to give myself a nice 40th birthday gift and did a lift/augmentation in 2011. I also decided in 2016 that I'd do a tummy tuck after my hysterectomy. SO WORTH IT. I feel like a brand new person. So much so, I even went back to modeling. More
