This "doctor" changes the name of his procedure periodically so that he can hide his negative reviews. It has been called "The Horndeski Method", the "Ultimate Breast Lift" and now "The Bellesoma Method".

Original review posted by user Jun 16, 2017

This doctor butchered me! I am needing my 4th reconstructive surgery to correct the botched Ultimate Breast Lift garbage he touts as his proprietary method.

RUN! My nipples are too high, my horizontal scars cut across my ***, they are pointed, weird angled, dog-eared and flat! He did one revision in office without anesthesia that sent me into shock, I had another revision by a reputable surgeon that helped a lot but didn't fix it all the way so I'm having to have a crease reconstruction, surgical mesh placed during my 4th procedure to see if we can stop these stargazer nipples from popping out of every bra and top I have. He ruined my life.

He does not care about you as a patient at all. I am going to have to spend $40k in total to fix what he charged me $13k for! Do yourself a favor and REALLY INVESTIGATE him before considering. Review sites like Realself.com take down every negative review I've written, including those of 12 more ladies - and these are just the ones I'm aware of.

Why? Because he pays for adverting through them and they do everything they can to bury his negative press. He has renamed this procedure so many times, an effort to avoid the negative reviews being found on the internet! Run a court background and case search to find his malpractice suits, run a search at the Texas Medical Board to find the multiple disciplinary actions he has undergone, including referral for psychiatric evaluation.

Ask him which hospitals he has lost privileges at.

Find out why there is no neutral third party peer review publications touting his "method". Dig deep because he has made it where you have to, but make sure you are VERY CLEAR about how bad an outcome you could receive, then make sure you are able to handle the permanent disfigurement and the 40k+ in funds it will take to get you looking anything close to human again before you meet with him.

Three years ago I had a breast lift by this surgeon who I researched so thoroughly (I thought). I did not want the vertical scar nor was thinking I ever wanted implants that is the reason I considered this office.

Biggest regret I have, not only it set me back 12K (double the national average) but my breasts which were my asset are now flat pancakes that droop sideways in a triangular shape. He was abrupt, rough and very dismissive in this manners, I thought it's ok that's the engineer in him, what matters is the result... Well I was not happy with the result from the beginning and no amount of revision fixed anything. Revision took place in his office with a simple local anesthetic, the pain was unbearable the result useless if not worse.

I do not recommend Dr. Horndeski at all.


The pictures of the girls on his sight look to me like he got it right with them.The young lady who has put her pictures of her breast lift up on the comments looks like something didn't quit go right. I feel the young lady should be compensated , her under the breast line scar should have been folded further back under her breast. You can clearly see something is unissued.

A weekend course in photoshop can do wonders for pictures.


Disgusting what kind of person let alone doctor can do this? How can Dr. Horndeski sleep at night after bothering so many.

It’s ALL about the money.


Dr.Horndeski is a quack and a butcher who has been banned from hospitals, disciplined by colleagues and countless malpractice lawsuits brought against him .

Dr.Gary Horndeski and his assistant, Elisa Gonzalez, who is JUST as guilty as Dr. Horndeski [she tries to blame u, the patient,and pathetically btw, by saying any bad outcome or complication is your fault].

Questions and concerns about ur complications resulting from Dr. Horndeski are never answered and Elisa Gonzalez simply avoids and deflects the fact you are butchered by trying to convince you its your fault, or your bad healing -according to her.

What a joke!

I hope he pays her well for what she does as a complete sellout to other women and the medical field


Thank you so much for posting this. I have been keeping tabs on this surgeon for years.

I knew someone would come out and tell the truth. I will not be seeing him and thanks for saving my life.


Dear poster,

What a brave thing to post your experiences and photos. After reading your review, I hope you are able to find resolve.

This doctor definitely needs to be sued until he no longer ruins other women's lives.

Thank you for sharing your horrible experience about Dr Gary Horndeski. I have a close friend who has gone through a similar difficult experience. Hopefully, this incompetent *** will lose his license to practice one day.

So sorry to hear and see these horrendous results from Dr. Horndeski. It is criminal what he does and I will take him off my list for potential breast lift doctor.


I just saw yours and the other reviews too late!

This is crazy how he buries his honest reviews on other sites.

Finally, the truth will come out! Thank you for being brave enough to post photos bc you might have saved many!
