"An overall great experience with very caring staff"
Clinic's favourite review
100%Reviewed 19 Jul 2017 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Breast Implants
This was my first, ever surgery, and it could not have been a better experience.

I researched for the past year, reading reviews, contacting doctors, local and international, (please don’t be limited to the country you live in, experience and health care is at an extremely high standard in Argentina and elsewhere, just do your research, it was so worth it for me), I talked to many people in Canada who went through breast augmentation surgeries locally and didn’t get to stay overnight after the procedure. As the first 24hrs is the most critical time for care, this option is of extreme importance and cuts down the risks involved drastically.

After contacting Dr. Freschi from Canada I had confidence, although I still made my final decisions in person. I should mention all communication with the doctor was in English. His English is excellent! We emailed, he answered all my questions with fantastic timing, gave me things to think about, offered a questionnaire about my overall health, told me what to expect, what options would best suit me and gave much more information. All of that reinforced his confidence and care. One key differentiator from local surgeons is his amazing experience. He performs hundreds more surgeries annually than Canadian doctors. Certainly, in my experience, practice makes perfect.

My husband and I booked 2 weeks in Argentina - you need at least 7-10 days there after surgery for a proper start to recovery. I did all the appropriate tests in Canada and had my blood work and consultation done in Buenos Aires (BA) with ease. People in health care in BA are patient even when there is a language barrier (google translator helps! ). We found that it is not necessary to share a language in order to be professional and show care. Dr. Freschi’s people and the support staff and the clinic were all caring and professional - which made me feel more confident and comfortable.

My surgery was booked two days after consultation at a clinic close to Dr. Freschi’s office in the Recoleta neighborhood. Being BA, there are plenty of restaurants around and Recoleta itself is a fantastic base for accommodation. The check in was easy and the hospital room was clean and good - having a door that actually closed was a unique experience for someone from Ontario! There was even a large couch which staff set up with bedclothes for my husband to stay overnight with me. The food was also OK, although my husband chose to eat at a local cafeteria because the dining opportunities were too good to miss.

Everyone on the team, from the nurses, through to the anesthetist, was introduced to me and this ensured my physical and mental comfort throughout the procedure. Just placing a pillow under my knees for comfort in the OR insured I would be cared for under general anesthesia. The post-care was great and my bruising has been amazingly low. All my questions to the doctor served to demonstrate his unique techniques for bruise and scar reduction. It all made sense and my lovely new breasts are the evidence!

One surgeon is not going to be perfect for everyone, but I urge you to consider Dr. Freschi for your surgery.

The clinic was clean and comfortable. From the room, I stayed in with my husband to the OR, to the food. It was an overall great experience with very caring staff.

"The best decision"
100%Reviewed 06 Jun 2017 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone.
Treatment Received: Breast Implants
I had an over the muscle breast augmentation in January with Dr. Freschi and it was the best decision. Not only do they look completely natural, my healing was so smooth and my incisions are almost invisible.

He was very knowledgeable, able to answer all of my questions over the entire year I was asking them before I had my procedure. He was also very reassuring, making me feel much more comfortable with the surgery then I thought I could have ever been (this was my first surgery ever).

His office is very nice and accessible. The hospital the procedure was done in was also wonderful, my room was nicer than some hotels. I would highly recommend Dr. Freschi. I will definitely be going back to see him in the future.

"My care was first class"
100%Reviewed 21 May 2017 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Liposuction
I am a Canadian who chose to seek treatment for Lip-edema in my legs and arms, specifically with Dr. Freschi. I chose him based on a referral from another Canadian who had received treatment for the same condition. I could not be happier that I did. From the start of my experience, Dr. Freschi was very responsive to my multiple email questions. Once I arrived in Buenos Aires, Dr. Freschi gave me his personal contact information, met with me, answered any remaining questions, explained the process and surgery and left me feeling at ease about the choice I had made.

For the post-surgery and follow-up, he went above and beyond to assure that my care was first class. He even assisted with a travel related problem I had, which was truly above and beyond. I stayed in Buenos Aires.

My post-care and results can be summed up in this message I sent to Dr. Freschi when I returned home. "Dr. Freschi, I cried tears of joy at the gym today. I used to be a runner when I was young. Over time, my legs got too heavy with lip-edema and I could not run anymore I blew out my knee in 2012 pushing myself. I have been working with a personal trainer for the last year and a half and the fastest I could run on the treadmill was 5.5 speed. Today, just 3 weeks post-op, I was sprinting at a 9.0. A 9.0!! My legs could lift, they weren't heavy. They worked like real legs. I am so proud of myself. This surgery was life changing for me. I have new working legs. Thank you so much. I will be forever grateful."

Both Dr. Freschi's clinic and the hospital where the surgery was performed were modern, clean and very professional. Dr. Freschi and his staff are fluent in English and so was the Anesthesiologist at the hospital. Most of the hospital staff speak Spanish (of course) and I don't, but I didn't find it to be difficult to communicate and the staff were very patient with my use of Google Translate. I would highly recommend Dr. Freschi and a trip to Buenos Aires for lip-edema treatment.

"After has been fantastic"
100%Reviewed 19 Oct 2016 We were unable to verify the reviewer.
Treatment Received: Breast Lift
After more than 15 years' deliberation, I finally went ahead with a breast lift. I am 32 and had always known that I wanted to have this procedure, but had never been in a financial position to do so previously. Although it is early days, I am literally delighted with the shape of my breasts post-op and actually well up every time I look in the mirror. So in terms of whether the surgery was good value, my answer is a resounding yes - for me this was an investment that you couldn't put a price on, and it was unquestionably worth the wait to get there.

I had some inital reservations about how the scarring might impact my relationship with my boyfriend, but in the end we decided that the difference it could make to my happiness was worth the risk. I can already say without a shadow of a doubt that this was 100% the right decision: although I'm confident that in any case the scarring will be minimal and very neat thanks to the skill of my surgeon, I can honestly say that this issue has completely lost any importance for both of us given how happy we are with the new shape of my breasts.

I am a Brit living in Buenos Aires and spent a long time researching my options locally before going ahead with the procedure. I interviewed several surgeons before arriving at Dr. Freschi but felt an instant confidence in his professionalism. The knowledge and experience that he transmitted during our first consultation gave me full faith in his abilities, and I greatly appreciated his suggestion that my boyfriend attend our second consultation to involve him in the process. Dr. Freschi was extremely reassuring throughout the operation itself, which was important for me as it was the first time I'd undergone surgery. His aftercare has also been fantastic, but what speaks louder than anything is the incredible result that he has given me and the difference I already feel in myself. Thank you Andrés, you changed my life!!

"I highly recommend him to my family and friends"
100%Reviewed 29 Sep 2016 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Labiaplasty
"After receiving conflicting recommendations from the specialists in Canada, I decided to contact Dr. Andres by email. I decided to visit him in person, while in Argentina, as he was very accommodating to my schedule - after meeting and speaking, I was immediately relieved and trusted his professional opinion.

My experience was excellent, my recovery was quick - and I feel blessed to know there is someone so respectful, skilled and educated, that I can turn to in the future.

If you are considering Dr. Andres Freschi, I assure you, once you meet him, you will be impressed with his skills, knowledge, and professionalism.

My procedure, and my quick healing, and the personalized care made it clear; I was very pleased with my decision!

I highly recommend him to my family and friends.

Excellent.
The clinic is in a convenient location, it is extremely clean and beautifully decorated, and very welcoming!

"I have been favourably impressed with the total professional"
90%Reviewed 30 Apr 2016 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Plastic Surgeon Consultation
I had been looking at myself in the mirror and thinking that my face didn't reflect how I felt. I sent some realistic pics of my face and neck and lower back (fat pads that just wouldn't go away no matter what I did) which I didn't like. Dr Freschi proposed a composite deep plane facelift with some fat graft (lipofilling) harvested from the abdomen, flanks and back for skin regeneration. He also said there was significant redundant skin in the upper lids that would benefit from a a blepharoplasty. I was a bit overwhelmed because I wasn't expecting all of that but I decided to go with his advice. I'm very glad I did. As I write it's been just over 3 weeks now and I'm very happy with the results. The process of healing is still ongoing; no pain but parts of my face still feel very tight. My waist looks great as does my neck. Dr Freschi explained to me that the deep plane will take longer to heal but the results will last longer. I feel his explanation makes good sense and I look great so I'm happy to wait. Since about Day 5 or 6 I've been able to function more or less.I have been feeling back to my previous energy levels for over a week now. I feel this treatment has taken at least 10 years off from where I started and totally recommend Dr Freschi.

I started several years ago looking around; a friend of mine had mentioned Buenos Aires. So I had look and after quite a lot of research I came upon Dr Andres Freschi. Finally after a couple of years of indecision, I decided to book a trip to B.A. and then I contacted Dr Freschi about a month before I was due to come. He responded overnight and I really liked what he proposed and the price was very reasonable and much cheaper than I would have paid for in my home country. We corresponded almost everyday up to the time I arrived in B.A. and told me what was needed to be done pre op and also answering to all my various concerns. He organised everything from his end with a total team of professionals at the op itself and overnight hospital stay (very modern and clean), and the first 24 hrs of total care. After I went back to my place, he stayed in touch everyday for the first week, and as I'm still in B.A. until May 10, he sees me every week to check progress. As you might expect, I have been favourably impressed with the total professional service from Dr Freschi and associates including his receptionist who is very nice and makes you feel very welcome and also speaks very good English.

"Looking like a younger version of myself"
100%Reviewed 08 Apr 2016 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Facelift
These past years I would look at my aging face (73 years) and think a facelift would be a wonderful thing - but I didn't expect it would happen as it was out of my price range. Realizing costs would be less in Buenos Aires and surgical care should be as good as anywhere led me to explore this option.
I was fortunate to meet three other Floridians who had had face lifts by Dr Freschi about two weeks before mine was scheduled. They were all happy with the results, as am I.

I was planning a trip from Florida to Antarctica and Argentina when the option of a facelift in Buenos Aires was presented to me. I had two weeks to chose a surgeon!
I contacted several plastic surgeons in Buenos Aires and Dr. Freschi immediately stood out from the others with his communication skills. He personally responded to my initial query and followed up with prompt answers to my questions and concerns.
An exploration of his initial and continuing education found him to be well grounded and up to date with the latest procedures.
I actually met him only a few days before my scheduled surgery. He explained the anticipated procedure and outcomes, answering all of my questions as they arose.
The surgery and recovery have gone well and I am now one month post op looking like a younger version of myself!
I found Dr. Freschi not only to be a skilled surgeon but a warm, caring and delightful person. I would highly recommend him.

"Feeling both physically and emotionally better"
100%Reviewed 22 Feb 2016 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Plastic Surgeon Consultation
A close relative of mine had surgery for Lipedema - it's a complicated highly misdiagnosed disorder, that affects about 11% percent of women world wide. The upper portion of their body is not in proportion to the lower half. Often making their legs/arms very heavy, with cuffing that can occur around the ankles.
Not may surgeons world wide treat this disease, Dr. Freschi does! And he's been a godsend. The surgery was done on legs and arms. We started to notice results after a week, and now three weeks in, things are looking very well. My relative is now feeling much better both physically and emotionally. I don't think she can quite believe her new healthy shape. I would highly recommend this doctor. Dr. Freschi is a very skilled surgeon, and a caring, concerned physician.

The clinic was excellent too. I really enjoyed that they had a comfortable couch that a person accompanying the one having surgery could use to stay overnight. The meals were perfectly prepared depending on what kind of surgery one had. The rooms were private with nice washroom/shower/tv. The overnight stay was part of the overall cost of the surgery. Dr. Freschi speaks and writes excellent English. Not all of the staff at the clinic do. But that need not be a problem. I downloaded a Spanish translation app, and everything was understood.

"All my bruises are gone and everything is looking great"
100%Reviewed 06 Feb 2016 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Liposuction
After some extensive research and consultations with many doctors, I decided to choose Dr. Freschi for my Ultrasound Liposuction
He and his team were very friendly, welcoming and professional, they made me feel safe and relaxed the whole time.
I can quite honestly say the whole experience was very pleasant, almost painless and completely straight forward.
The pain after the surgery was a lot less than i expected and I walked out of the clinic the same night after the surgery.
I am now 12 days into my recovery and everything is looking great, all my bruises are gone, im back at the gym and i do not feel any pain whatsoever. The incision marks are almost invisible too.
The doctor and his secretary checked up on me regularly after surgery to make sure i was feeling well.
I cannot recommend Dr. Freschi and his team enough.

This was my first surgery ever, so i was pretty scared, but everything went great. Being in an actual clinic for the procedure and not in an office really made me feel safe. After the surgery i was transferred into a private room where the nurses checked up on me every hour and even got me vegetarian meals.

Areola Reduction
 
Arm Lift
This surgical procedure aims at eliminating the accumulation of fat and flaccidity in the arm inner side. When there is only excess of fat, it can be corrected by a liposuction. When flaccidity is an important issue to consider, the only method that will provide a real solution is surgery.
Surgery will improve arm contour, shape and smoothness by means of eliminating the excess of fat and the sagging skin. The residual scar is inevitable, but it remains hidden in the arm inner side.
Braquioplasty is a safe and ambulatory surgical procedure. It is very satisfying for patients since it enhances the figure and gives back the possibility of wearing tighter sleeves or sleeveless articles of clothing.
This surgery can be performed at the same time as abdominoplasty (dermolipectomy) or breast surgery (augmentation, reduction or lift).
How do I prepare for surgery?
It is important to avoid taking any Aspirin or products containing Aspirin for 2 weeks either side of the operation since Aspirin has an adverse effect on bruising. If you are a smoker it is helpful to stop for two weeks before surgery and for a week afterwards so as not to restrict the circulation to the skin.
Where will my surgery be performed?
The surgery is usually performed at a clinic in the city of Buenos Aires where Dr. Freschi works with in Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery. You will usually be admitted on the day of surgery.
You will need a friend or relative to accompany you home when you leave hospital after surgery.
 
Breast Implants
 
Breast Lift

Introduction

Following child birth, weight loss or as part of the ageing process the breasts can drop as the skin loses its elasticity combined with some loss of volume. The aim of a mastopexy or "breast uplift" is to make the breasts more shapely and better supported with a more youthful and pert appearance whilst repositioning the nipple at its former height.
There are many different techniques of breast uplift and so the position of the resulting scars may vary a little.

How do I prepare for surgery?

It is important to avoid taking any Aspirin or products containing Aspirin for 2 weeks either side of the operation since Aspirin has an adverse effect on bruising. While making preparations, be sure to arrange for someone to drive you home after your surgery and to help you out for a few days at home, if needed.

How long will the surgery take?

The length of your operation depends on the extent of the procedure. On average this will take between two and about two and a half hours.


What type of anaesthetic will be used?

Breast uplift can be performed under a local plus sedation or general anaesthetic, so you'll sleep through the entire operation.

What does the operation involve? 

Before going down to the operating theatre, Dr. Freschi will come and make some markings on you in order to determine the exact position and size

The weight of large or pendulous breasts may cause a variety of medical problems including back and neck pain, skin irritation and shoulder soreness from tight bra straps. Large breasts can also make a woman or a teenage girl feel extremely self-conscious. Breast reduction surgery aims to make the breasts smaller, more shapely and better supported.

Facelift
Introduction.
.
As part of the ageing process our skin progressively loses its elasticity and our facial muscles tend to slacken along with a loss of volume from the mid face. The effect of this process on the face is to cause the cheeks to become less prominent, the nose to mouth lines to deepen, the jawline to sag giving rise to jowls and the skin of the neck to fall into loose folds. Around the eyes the eyebrows may droop and the skin in the eyelids tends to drape giving a hooded appearance.
The rate at which this happens varies from one person to another and is determined genetically although it may be accelerated by smoking or excessive sun exposure. These changes can be addressed surgically with a face and neck lift which may also be combined with surgery to the eyelids. He will also be honest in informing you if he feels you are not ready for a facelift yet but should wait a few years.
What can be done?
There are several operations that can be done to rejuvenate the ageing face which are referred to as facelifting.
The decision as to which type of facelift is performed will depend on your particular requests, the anatomy of your face presently and the effect that ageing has played on your facial appearance. The latter may be assessed with the help of photographs taken ten years or so before and also from your youth which you will be requested to bring to the consultation.
Often the main concern is the neck area. If there is a lot of loose skin or separation of the muscles producing two bands, then a neck lifting procedure may be required.
This can usually be performed through the facelift incisions so tightening the neck muscles to a more youthful appearance. Occasionally a small scar, hidden beneath the chin, may also be required to tighten the neck muscles centrally.

Liposuction

Introduction

Liposuction is a technique used to remove unwanted fat deposits. It was developed in the 1970's and is therefore well tested and gives predictable results. It is best suited to removing localised deposits of fat from the hips, tummy, waist or thighs. It can also be used in combination with other procedures such as facelifting, to remove fat from the neck, or with a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) to remove fat from the waistline. It is a technique for improving body shape rather than helping with weight loss.

More recent developments, known as liposculpture, have added considerable refinement to our ability to reshape the contour of the body. However it is not a substitute for a controlled diet and results are best in patients who are not overweight but who have localised collections of fat. Good results also depend on elastic skin that will adapt to a new contour when the underlying fat is removed. With age skin becomes less elastic but the condition of the skin rather than your chronological age is the most important factor. This will be carefully assessed at your consultation with Dr. Freschi.

How do I prepare for surgery?

It is important to avoid taking any Aspirin or products containing Aspirin for 2 weeks either side of the operation since Aspirin has an adverse effect on bruising. If you are a smoker it is helpful to stop for two weeks before surgery and for a week afterwards so as not to restrict the circulation to the skin. Patients taking the oral contraceptive pill are advised to stop this for one complete cycle before surgery.

Where will my surgery be performed?

The surgery is usually performed at a clinic in the city of Buenos Aires where Dr. Freschi works with in Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery. You will usually be admitted on the day of surgery.

Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is an operation designed to re-shape the nose. It is one of the most common cosmetic procedures performed in both men and women with patients reporting increased self confidence as a result of improvement in their appearance. The most common request is to reduce the size and shape of a large nose or tip, but occasionally an increase in the height of the profile is also requested. In most instances the incisions are within the nostrils leaving no visible scars on the outside. A detailed consultation and examination are essential before a precise surgical plan can be made by Dr. Freschi.

Introduction

As the face ages in addition to the skin becoming loose which gives rise to jowls and folds in the neck there is also a loss of soft tissue volume particularly in the cheek area. In contrast to the fullness of youth the face later in life can look gaunt with a sunken appearance in the region of the cheek bones and mid face. The purpose of fat transfer is to take fat from another part of the body (e.g. the abdomen or buttocks) and transfer it to the face to try and reverse some of these changes. Using fat from areas of the body to restore volume elsewhere is not a new concept, however until recently the results were not reliable.

When fat is transplanted to another site it needs new blood vessels to grow into it to provide nourishment for the fat cells. Following the pioneering work of Sydney Coleman in New York this procedure has been greatly refined to improve the survival of the fat. This is achieved by firstly purifying the fat after it is harvested and secondly by placing it in multiple tunnels to build up layers which can be nourished by new blood vessels in a much more reliable fashion than ever before. Fat transfer is often performed in conjunction with other surgical procedures such as a facelift in order to rejuvenate the face by a volumetric approach.

Which areas are suitable for fat transfer?

Fat transfer is most commonly used for rejuvenation in the face. It can be helpful to provide volume which can reshape the midface over the cheek bones and in the hollow of the cheek itself. It may also be beneficial in filling the nose to mouth lines (nasolabial folds) as well as below the corners of the mouth and the chin to provide a lift. These areas can also be treated at the time of facelifting.
