Still Recovering - Fountain Valley, CA

I did alot of research on her and I liked what I read about her. Also once I met her I felt like I clicked with her well. She didnt make any promises or blow smoke she just said she will do the best she can based on what my expectations are and hopes that we will both be happy.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Perfect Lie Worth It! Would Do It Again! - Orange County, CA

I was reffered by another patient and I'm choosing to rate Dr. Afifi 5 STARS because she is an honest professional and actually cares about her patients and her work shows it. She did a wonderful job in making my boob job look just PERFECT for my body without overdoing It and the price wasnt bad for her quality of work as well. I really lucked out! I went in and had great consultation with Dr. Afifi! She made me feel very comfortable and was honest with her oppinion which I feel so often is not given by many plastic surgeons! She not once quoted me for obvious unesscary procedures. The whole process from paying was easy to the actual day of surgery. Great results, great breast and NO refund gap here ! VERY HAPPY patient, shes def saving lives here :)

4 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

She is a self proclaimed perfectionist. She is very down to earth and she does not sugar-coat things, she will tell it like it is. The staff is wonderful and the surgery center staff was amazing as well.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Liposuction, Tummy Tuck & Butt Lift - Orange County, CA

I was really comfortable with Dr Afifi because she took the time to explain everything to me, I read her credentials & her experience(she has a lot of experience) but overall she made me feel secure & confident. I found her here on realself. Someone wrote a review on her that I like & she recommend that I go to her Santa Ana Office because the overhead was cheaper and she could give us a better rate than her Newport Office & she did. Reading everyone experiences has really helped me get through so I just wanted to say Thank You to Realself for having this site, & to everyone that has posted comments & answers even tho I didn't ask question someone else did & I still got my answer, & Dr Afifi for doing a Great Job. Sorry I didn't post any pic it just I haven't taken any but when I do I'll post them.......

Dr. Afifi is the GREATEST! - Orange County, CA

I didn't know what to expect. I felt very comfortable with her and she took the time to answer all my questions. I didn't get a sales pitch about how great she was and why she was better than other doctors, instead, she spent time asking me what I wanted and trying to make sure I was happy. I chose her based on referrals from friends and reviews of her on websites...
