5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation and Rhinoplasty. Danville, CA

Dr. Lavey performed a breast augmentation with saline implants about 10 years ago. He performed a rhinoplasty at the same time. My natural breast size was a double A, ie: non-existent! I am now a really pretty, natural looking size C. Since my surgery I have had a baby and successfully breast fed and they still look amazing! I chose to have a rhinoplasty because I had a large nose and was...

68 Year Old, 2nd Face Lift, and I Look Great! - Danville, CA

Dr. Lavey performed my 1st facelift (including eyes and forehead) in 2002, when I was 55 years old. I chose to do the procedure 11 weeks before my daughter's wedding -- a great decision! My goal, which was to basically look like a "well rested" version of myself, was exceeded. And a bonus -- great wedding photos! I never thought I would choose to have a 2nd facelift, but 11+ years later, at...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

27 Year Old Female with Loose Skin and Bad Genes - Danville, CA

Backstory: Since I was 10 or 11 years old, I have had this gut (almost looked like I was pregnant), despite always being an active kid that was enrolled in at least 2 sports year round. As I got older, the "gut" would fluctuate, but even when I was at my lightest, it was still there and even began to sag. While I have always been mostly healthy and active, I have definitely always been on the...

Eye Lids Sagging, Frown Lines, Age Spots, Left Ear Lope - Danville, CA

My hair dresser a few years ago had referred me to Doctor Elliott Lavey. I contacted Doctor Elliott Lavey because I wanted to look younger and make improvements to my eyes, skin and ear.

5 out of 5 stars Neck Lift

82 Years Old, Very Successful Neck Lift - San Ramon, CA

I am one of Dr. Elliott Lavey's recent patients. I am age 82. Most of my friends and business associates told me I was too old to try to improve my appearance. These same critics have now seen my improvements obtained by Dr. Lavey's plastic surgery, and many of these critics now want to have a consultation with Dr. Lavey. Everything from my first meeting with Dr. Lavey through viewing my...

68 Yr. Old Looks 48 - Danville, CA

I visit Dr. Lavey regularly for Fraxel , Botox or Restylane mostly. His expertise in keeping me looking as young as I feel is beyond my expectations. Honestly the work Dr. Lavey has done for me has been absolutely amazing. I go into his office and ask him to fix the sagging jawls or wrinkly eye lines or lines around my month or whatever it is and he has the perfect treatment. I so...

He and his office staff did an amazing job from start to finish and I could not be happier with my results. He made me feel comfortable at all times and his work on my liposuction was amazing. I would and do recommend him to any and all friends and family considering having...

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Great Doctor - Danville CA

Deciding on whether or not to use fillers is difficult but I was entirely confident in the options offered by Dr. Lavey. I did not want any extreme change and had no experience in this. I was looking for something minimal and, obviously, natural. Dr. Lavey listened carefully to my concerns and provided me with best choices. I have no regret.

Several Procedures over a 20-year Time Frame--forehead Lift, Eyes and Neck Procedures - Danville, CA

I've worked with Dr. Lavey for approx. 20 years, having various procedures. He's not only an excellent doctor but a quality person; he gives honest advice and suggestions, not doing procedures he doesn't feel would be of benefit for the results I want to achieve. --I highly recommend Dr. Lavey as well as his medical assistant, Kathy. She's not only a true professional but also a very kind,...
