He and his staff was very knowledgeable and took their time with me. I had my surgery pretty fast, 1st visit and then 6 days later I had Mentor gel implants.

Doctor never said there was a chance that the goals/wishes I expressed with this procedure may not be possible. Said that implant would create the fullness and matopexy remove excess skin to lift up the breasts. I feel that I couldve had the lift alone and gotten the same results.

When I decided I wanted a breast augmentation, I knew I would settle for nothing but the BEST doctor and BEST results. I did research on pretty much every plastic surgeon in the surrounding Houston area and actually consulted with 3 docs. In the end, I went with Dr. Ciaravino because I personally KNEW his work since 5+ girls I knew had gone to him. All of their results varied it size depending on their body type but they all had one thing in common- NATURAL looking. I am so happy I decided on Dr. C because he is the best in TX and the recovery was a BREEZE. I was out and about the next day. I have and will continue to reccommend this doc to everyone interested in this procedure. OH also Kayte in his office is the sweetest ever and was personally there for any minor question I had after surgery--Even after hours! Very personable staff overall. :)

I found out about Dr. Ciaravino after doing some research on the internet. I scheduled a consultation where I met the Dr. and his staff. I waited a few months then scheduled my surgery. It was about a 4 month wait for a surgery date. My pre-op is 10.24.12 and surgery is 10.25.12. I wanted to update my review on my doctor. I wish he personally came to see me after the surgery. He had his staff do my post op check up. I would strongly have preferred he do his own follow up with me. My Post op was the day after because I was flying out the day after..I believe he was in surgery that day. Also, we discussed a lift as plan of action he moved the nipple but no lift..I never recieved an explanation of this but I believe he may have passed up the lift to accomodate a bigger implant. I am very happy with my new breasts, he did a beautiful job, staff was very supportive and kind. The staff at the surgical center were great with the exception of an asian RN she was not so compassionate, made me feel rushed to leave..sort of an up and out feel with her, also she was inexperienced with placing the cathedar and appeared impatient as another staff member coached her..Definitly something I could have done with out being that I was in such a fragile state.
