Dr. Carlos Mata offers a noninvasive procedure called platelet rich plasma, which is used to mainly treat athletes and other patients who have tendon injuries. Using their own blood, these men and women will rebuild their damaged tendons by jumpstarting the healing process with their own growth factors. The blood is used to generate a higher platelet concentration, which is then injected to facilitate healing of ligaments, joints, tendons, and other musculoskeletal problems. In plastic surgery, Dr. Mata can also use this procedure to activate platelets injected into abnormal tissues or scars to release growth factors which increase the production of reparative cells. If you would like to learn more at platelet rich plasma treatments, please call and schedule your consultation.
"I had two procedures done earlier this year by Dr. Mata. The tummy tuck was in January 2016 and following after in February, thigh lift. After working out so many years, it was the excess skin and fat I had removed. For all my future procedures and for friends and family, I definitely recommend Dr. Mata. Growing up with physicians in my family ( my mother was a Pediatrician), he has a wonderful disposition very reminiscent of the days when doctors cared and took all the time you needed to address concerns. Dr. Mata also made sure I was mentally prepared for the procedures and was 100% transparent with what I can expect. It's not a form of weight loss, but body sculpting. He has a very nurturing way about him as well. My healing experience has been the most positive under his care and the care of the staff. You are given written directions and the nurses will answer any questions you have. After the procedures, of course, new clothes feel great in smaller sizes, but it's not seeing the unwanted skin and fat, always getting larger sizes to disguise my trouble spots that brings me happiness. I have no regrets. I highly recommend Dr. Mata and I'm so grateful. My arms are next! :-)"- L.N. / Google / Jul 06, 2016
"friendly honest and trustworthy plastic surgeon - When I first met Dr. Mata I had already had 2 surgeries in 3 months, one for implants and one because I had an infection in my pocket. I still had the infection and the implants had to come out. I had been passed around from doctor to doctor by this time and did not know who to trust. Dr. Mata said the implants needed to come out and we would try again after I healed. So heading into my third surgery I felt broken. Dr. Mata walked me through The Whole thing and was extremely companionate. After 6 months of healing I went in for my 4th surgery to try and feel normal again because at this point one of my breast was deformed. Dr. Mata and my husband were my rocks. Here I am well into my second month I look beautiful and everything is now healing as it should. Dr. Mata makes you feel that he is truly there for you and you are not alone. I know cosmetic surgery is done out of vanity but it is still a medical procedure and to have a doctor that sees past the vanity and knows it is for your self worth is everything. If you want someone there for you emotionally as well as medically, I could not think of a better doctor. I feel whole again. I can not explain how much Dr. Mata has given me."- Anonymous / Vitals / Jun 16, 2017

"Mommy makeover success - My mommy makeover experience was way better then I thought with outstanding results. My first visit with Dr Mata was what sealed the deal, really liked that he explained everything in detail without sugar coding anything. The surgery was such a success I was really expecting to be in a lot of pain but it was not bad. Now is three weeks post surgery and I look amazing feel like I'm 20 yrs old..."- A. / RealSelf / Jun 10, 2017
