5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Perfection in Care

Exhibits excellence in his field! Informative, listens, stays relevant to new techniques available, professional, compassionate! Exceptional experience both with Dr. Alfonzo and his staff! As an RN I took having surgery seriously.

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.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

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.

40 Year-old Mom of 3 - Grand Rapids, MI

Dr. Alfonso did a fantastic job with my tummy tuck and lipo of the stomach, flanks, and back. He is pleasant and extremely knowledge. He took his time listening to my questions and concerns. I always felt comfortable and in good hands. I am extremely happy with the results. I can't say enough good things about him and his staff. His office staff - from nurses to the surgical coordinator were...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

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.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Excellent experience!

Dr. Alfonso gave me my confidence back! I've had three c-sections and had been trying to loose weight for years. In my initial consultation appointment, Dr. Alfonso explained that no amount of exercise or diet would remove the excess skin in my tummy area. The amount of relief I I felt from thinking I was a failure brought tears to my eyes. I scheduled a tummy tuck procedure within a month...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Great Experience-Five star Recommendation

Dr. Alfonso did an amazing job! I had some disproportion on one slightly larger than the other. I also had some premature sagging. Dr. Alfonso fixed both issues and I love the work he did. I am so happy with how they look now, I don't feel self-conscious wearing bathing suits or tighter fitting tops and I feel so much better about myself. His office staff made me feel very...

I had nothing but great experiences with Dr. Alfonso. He was very patient, understanding and answered all my questions. I never once felt rushed. The facility was very nice and all the staff were very friendly and courteous. I would highly recommend Dr. Alfonso to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon.
