5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty - 30 Yr Old Female

I've wanted rhinoplasty for as long as I could remember, but was always too nervous to actually go through with it. I am so glad I found Dr. Clavijo because he is the best surgeon that I could have ever asked for. He is so friendly, compassionate and knowledgeable - he truly cares about his patients and put all my concerns at ease. I told him what I didn't like about my nose (everything) and...

A Dr. with a funny bone

Dr. Alvarez is the most charming friendly Dr. I have ever went to. He has a way of putting his patients at ease. His office staff & surgical facility staff AAAA+++++. He even gave me his # if I had any problems. Never had a Doctor do that before. I'm only 3 days post op breast augmentation (sneaked a peak) and they look awesome! I aslo feel pretty darn good too, when for a walk today....

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction Revision

The months leading up to my prior liposuction Feb 2016, with a different practice, I expressed doubt. I felt i needed an abdominoplasty, not liposuction, for my world weary skin that bore two children and underwent a partial hysterectomy. The practice objected to my suggestion, not once but twice. I underwent the lipo procedure and while a lot of fat was removed, I was still left with a cruel...

I was very pleased with the outcome of my procedure. Dr. Clavijo-Alvarez and his staff were very kind, informative, and pleasant. There was literally no wait time after I arrived for my appointments, either for the consultation or follow-up. He contacted me personally the day after the procedure to see how I was doing.

At 30 years old I found myself with uneven eyes. My left side of my face look completely different than my right and it in a good way. I had no lid and was just uncomfortable having one wink eye.
