5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Great experience! Fantastic result.

Very professional, treated me respectfully. I love love love the results of liposuction under my chin. He couldn't have done better job. Spelled out the difference between Kybella & Lipo but didn't push one over other.

I had an amazing experience

I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Alfonso! He and his staff made me feel very comfortable, respected, and taken care of. They were very professional and knowledgeable and I am thrilled with my results! My breasts were different sizes and asymmetrical and I am thrilled with how they look now. If I ever need another surgery of this nature I will definitely go back to see him.

Wonderful experience and even better results

Dr. Alfonso is an amazing doctor. I had breast reduction surgery a little over a year ago and I am fully healed and the results are wonderful, you can hardly see the scaring and it is an entirely new experience with breasts that match my body. I am more comfortable, I look better and I am much happier. Dr. Alfonso did an amazing job and I would highly recommend to anyone.

5 out of 5 stars Chin Liposuction

Tired of Double Chin :(

Dr. David Alfonso of Plastic Surgery Associates, performed chin liposuction to rid me of my double chin that I inherited from my father. I am not overweight but you wouldn't know that from my photos. I have been very self conscious of this for years and decided I wanted to get it taken care of. I'm very happy with the results and wish I would have done it sooner!

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Professional, friendly and caring.

Had an abdominoplasty last year and the procedure went very well. Everyone was friendly and professional. Dr. Alfonso did an excellent job and showed genuine care before, during and after the procedure. Highly recommended.
