Dr. Laverson Delivers Amazing Results! - Encinitas, CA

I work at a dermatologist office and he was recommended by our doctors and staff. I've done my research on different plastic surgeons and even asked the doctors from our office of who they would recommend and Dr. Laverson's name stood out. I visited Dr. Laverson's office to get information about the procedure and Amber, the patient coordinator was very helpful that I didn't hesitate to schedule a consultation to meet with Dr. Laverson. Dr. Laverson was very warm and very informative. He took his time to listen to what my concerns and goals were and made his recommendations to what would better suit my body type. His goal was to make my breasts look as natural as much as possible without looking "fake." The staff was very accommodating with scheduling my appointments as it was difficult for me to take time off of work. Amber was in constant communication with me to ensure that I had my pre-op requirements completed in time for my procedure from financing, medications, instructions, etc.. A few days before my procedure I had some last minute "indecisiveness" on the size and Dr. Laverson talked to me and put me at ease and I felt more prepared and excited for the surgery. Dr. Laverson called me at home the evening after the surgery and spoke to me and my husband to check on how I was doing. I had a painful recovery on the days after the surgery but Dr. Laverson made sure that my pain was under control. His office is always open for any concerns that I had/have. Dr. Laverson and staff are amazing. Thank you :)

So Happy - Encinitas, CA

Dr. Laverson is an amazing doctor. I had a breast augmentation surgery and am extremely please with the result. As soon, as I met Dr. Laverson and his staff, I knew I was in the right hands. I live overseas, so I didn't have a lot of time meet surgeons, but my mom is a nurse and his name was a referral from another nurse. Not only am I very pleased with the result, I was very happy with the care, concern, and love from him. He was very empathetic and nurturing in the post-op. He was also keen to ensure the result was as perfect as can be. I appreciated his guidance on choosing the "right size" implant; and went bigger then I initially intended, and am happy I did. His staff are amazing as well. Flexible, happy, supportive, and understanding. I overheard other patients in the office also express the same sentiment. I highly recommend Dr. Laverson for any procedure and I will likely go back for more in the future! :)

Neck Liposuction, Chin Implant, Cheek Implants - San Diego, CA

After searching online, many doctors specialized in one or two of the three procedures I was looking for but I needed one plastic surgery doctor to perform all three because I wasn’t sure my credit was going to allow me to finance two or three procedures separately. My first consultation with Dr. Laverson was brief but we discussed everything I wanted, he took photos and set me up a second consultation. The second consultation was more in depth. What I liked is that Dr. Laverson actually studied my face and photos for the best results and answered all my questions. After I felt conferrable with the surgery procedures we set up a surgery date with his staff around my schedule.

Best Nose Job Ever - Encinitas, CA

I had rhinoplasty 2 months ago and I LOVE MY NEW NOSE! Dr. Steve Laverson is such an amazing and artistist plastic surgeon. He makes you feel completely comfortable and provides step by step details on what he's going to do. During my consultation, he did little measurements and even drew out my nose. He is super patient and answered all of my questions (believe me, I had a lot!) I visited about 5 other plastic surgeons and he had the best before and after photographs of everyone I saw. I had a very specific look I had in mind for my nose (kate beckinsale) and he gave me exactly what I wanted. The day before my surgery, he called to check up on me. After my surgery he called a few times to make sure I was recovering well. He even gave us his cell phone number so we could reach him at all times. To me, that was a step above and beyond what I could've asked for. He insists on seeing me every couple of weeks to see how I am healing. His staff at the Carlsbad office is awesome and make you feel at home! I would highly recommend him to anyone who is ready for a life changing experience!

Truly the Best - Encinitas, CA

Since I have been coming into Feel Beautiful I have never had such an outstanding Dr. in my life! I have been one of those people who has always had trouble losing weight and most of all been teased about it so trying to fight the gene pool and not getting the boobs like the rest of the girls in my family I finally turned to plastic surgery, one of the best decisions of my life! Dr. Laverson has made such a big impact on my over all out look on life and the way I feel about myself. He has been the best Dr. I could of ever asked for, from the time I first walked into to office to this day. Any problems I have had or concerns I have had at the drop of a dime he was there to help, give advice and make sure I was happy. Again I don't believe anyone could find a better Dr. or staff as the ones I have found at Feel Beautiful!

Aesthetic Nurse Who Loves Her New Nose - Encinitas, CA

In the weeks to follow I had many long-time clients who could not pinpoint what was ‘different’ about me. I constantly got asked, ‘you look amazing, what have you done differently?’ It wasn’t until I advised them that Dr. L had refined my nose that they actually noticed the difference. The change wasn’t obvious but the change was beautiful. I love looking in the mirror now thanks to Dr. L’s precision, eye for beauty, and tender care. I am thankful to work with such a talented Plastic Surgeon!

The Truth About Tummy Tuck Scars

Aesthetic (cosmetic) surgery describes procedures that improve personal appearance.
