5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Birthday Breasts and Lipo - San Diego, CA

After 3 children, I could not regain the body that I had before these pregnancies, no matter how much I dieted or worked out. My breasts were very flat and saggy and the ugly baby fat pads would not go away. I was so upset about this that my husband gave me cosmetic surgery for my birthday this year! I interviewed many surgeons and found Dr.  A through a friend of mine who was very happy...

Amazing experience from start to finish - San Diego, CA

For myself

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Outstanding - San Diego, CA

To look better and feel better. In my case, I got an abdominoplasty and some liposuction. He also tightened up the tummy muscles and corrected a hernia that I had gotten from my last pregnancy. I love the results and I can't tell you how much of a confidence booster it was for me to see the before and after. He has sculpted me even better than I used to be in my 20s.

5 out of 5 stars Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL)

Power Assisted Lipo - San Diego, CA

I had my lipo done 5 days ago. First day and the next day was pretty painful but not bad. On the 3rd day it felt like I was sore after a tough workout. I was really nervous to get it done because I am scared of pain and I have two children but I can honestly say the pain is not bad at all. On the 3rd day I could drive and do normal activities. By the way, I had my inner/outer thighs, hips,...

I Would Travel From FL to San Diego for Dr. A. He is the Best! - San Diego, CA

Inherited unattractive, puffy/hoody eyelids and wanted them corrected. I can not recall the cost of surgery, but it was reasonable. I'm african-american and prone to keloid and scarring. I experience neither with Dr. A. Now, 7 years later I still look amazing.

No Difference =/ - San Diego

I had lipo for my neck and lower abs. I'm a young male and actually really lightweight (128 lb, for a guy thats super light, even my ribs show haha) I wanted a defined neck and ab, so went to Dr. A for liposuction. He said he could definitely get my results. Well no good =( He's nice and all, but results weren't good.

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Dr. Alavi is the BEST! Went from a 36J-34DD

Dr. Alavi and his team are absolutely AMAZING! They have been so good to me and have done an incredible job! I had a Tummy Tuck, hernia repair & muscle repair after 2 c-sections, also Lipo and breast reduction, with fat transfer. Complete Makeover! I'm so impressed by his work. I'm still in the recovery phase, but as soon as I'm healed I will post before and after.

52 and Happy to Be Me - San Diego, CA

Today is day 4 Post Op. I'm not sure how I'm feeling about doing this surgery. I believe I will be happy after I heal but the constant bending position has my back in pain! The drains are awkward, my body is bruised and tender, but was warned about this. Lots of itching in the evening. Any advice for the itching?

1 out of 5 stars Liposuction
