5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Birthday Breasts and Lipo - San Diego, CA

I really liked Dr. A from the moment that I met him. His staff is wonderful too. During my consultation appointment, he personally and patiently answered all of my questions and gave me a sense of confidence and trust in him that was not unfounded. My procedure with Dr Alavi gave me my slender body back and my breasts are bigger and perkier than they have ever been. My husband absolutely loves my Birthday Body and so do I!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Amazing experience from start to finish - San Diego, CA

I recommend Dr. A to EVERYONE that is interested in breast Augmentation. His other work looks beautiful as well!!! I got a BA a few months ago and I honestly was treated so well! his nurses and staff are so courteous and professional. Dr. a explained everything in detail and never made me feel rushed or like I was just "another patient". He made me feel important! not to mention MY Breasts LOOK GREAT! The anesthesiologist made me feel so comfortable and just sat and talked with me before surgery because I was a little nervous. she was a wonderful combination of friend and professional. the office is so clean and inviting too.Dr A gave me confidence...I tell everyone about my experience and I would go back for any additional procedures. Several of my friends have gone to him and are just as happy as I am and feel the same.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Outstanding - San Diego, CA

To anyone reading this and considering surgery, I can't tell you how happy I am to have Dr. A as my surgeon. I did a lot of research and spoke with a few surgeons in the San Diego area, but I didnt feel confident with them enough to go any further than the first consults. I was getting discouraged to the point where I was just about to give up on my search and I just kind of happened upon Dr. A. When I called his office, the staff was warm and caring; I also got to speak directly with him. I was convinced that there was no need to look any further because he understood what I wanted and how to get to that point. I felt very at ease with him and his staff and confident in his abilities. The care given from the very first consultation, to the preparation for the operation, the operation itself and even the post-op care and follow-up office visits was OUTSTANDING! Dr. A and his wonderful staff supported me every step of the way. I am truly grateful for them. If you were asking me as a friend; my opinion is that this is the kind of team you want on your side.

Power Assisted Lipo - San Diego, CA

Great Doctor!

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

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

My eye-lid surgery was in NOV 2003 and I am posting now because over the years I've seen the results of poor work and feel EXTREMELY blessed to have had Dr. A as my surgeon. He was personable and professional. He also did my tummy tuck and lipsuction. I now live in Florida and will travel back to San Diego as his patient.

1 out of 5 stars Liposuction

No Difference =/ - San Diego

He assured me great results, but I didn't get any. But I think he's also a very nice and knowledgable man, just maybe underlooked my situation.

3 out of 5 stars Liposuction

7 months post-op liposuction and still have dark scars from cannula!

Good bedside manner but I oppose his procedure technique and after care. To be specific, he should've sewn my cannula incisions and not use the foam board.

It's an amazing life changing experience - San Diego, CA

Very professional and caring. I had lipo and BBL, I am very happy with my results. I have a waist and butt again.. I would definitely recommend and return back for any more procedures. I research many other doctors but Dr. Alavi, stood out the most. They answered all my questions and saw me twice before my procedure. The staff was warm and patience. I had my procedure on April 25th, saw the...

5 out of 5 stars Brazilian Butt Lift

22 Year Old Ready to Get a Summer Body!

He is kind and caring! Incredibly professional not only him but his staff. As many of you know, after surgery you are swollen. I was so swollen I was almost larger the day after surgery than before. Well, my garment became too large for me and I purchased a new one. I called in to see if it was okay and immediately the nurses set up an appointment for his staff to review my new garment to ensure that it was okay for me to wear. That level of care and professionalism is rare. I couldn't be happier in my choice of surgeon.
