Happy and Satisfied! - Wexford, PA

Dr. Alvarez made me feel completely comfort from the very first visit. I felt like he was passionate about what I wanted done and he was confident that he can deliver the results I wanted. He answered all of my questions, good or bad. He explained everything to me from the beginning until the end. I couldn't have chosen a better physician.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

38 Years Old, Unilateral Skin/nipple Sparing Mastectomy with Reconstruction. Wexford, PA

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in my left breast at the age of 38. While my health was my top priority, the cosmetic outcome was very important to me. I decided to have a unilateral skin/nipple sparing mastectomy with reconstruction. My surgical oncologist recommended Dr. Clavijo. I was obviously nervous during the first appointment, and completely overwhelmed. From the very beginning, I felt he cared about what I was going through. He shared some personal experiences with me and also used his sense of humor to put me and my husband at ease. By the end of the first appointment, I was certain that I was in good hands. Dr. Clavijo thoroughly explained the process that would include a tissue expander that would later be exchanged for an implant. I also opted for an augmentation of my healthy breast. For the first time since my initial diagnosis, I felt optimistic about my life after cancer. I had three surgeries at two different hospitals, and each time all of the nurses and staff had nothing but wonderful things to say about Dr. Clavijo. Not only did they think he was an excellent surgeon, but they enjoy working with him. Dr. Clavijo called after each surgery to see how I was doing. He explained everything that was going to happen thoroughly and encouraged questions. The staff at his office was friendly and helpful. His practice helped me through one of the hardest times of my life, and my family and I will always be grateful. I am extremely happy with the outcome of my procedures. Not only am I now cancer free, but the cosmetic results have exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend Dr. Clavijo to anyone not only because is he an excellent surgeon, but the way he treats his patients is second to none.

Julio Clovijo-Alvarez is a Brillent Plastic Surgeon - Wexford, PA

Dr. Alvarez is kind, compassionate, and extremely gifted. He completely reconstructed my breasts. He had to undo the damage from a breast reduction in 1978 and implants 2011. I went to him feeling like a freak. He transformed my breast explanting the implant and using my own breast tissue. I can't believe how beautiful my breast are now. He is easy to talk to and listens to what you want for your body. He makes you feel comfortable. I went to see 3 other physicians and none of them offered to reconstruct. They wanted to put other implants in or just remove them without reconstruction. He was the first surgeon I went to and he suggested that I get other opinions before making a decision. Although I went to 3 other plastic surgeons in the Pittsburgh area, I knew during my consultation with Dr. Alvarez that he was the one who would perform my surgery.

Dr Alvarez made me feel so comfortable - Pittsburgh, PA

This was prolly the smartest thing I ever did to get rid of those fine lines. The staff was so nice and the doctor is the best. I would never recommend anyone to go anywhere but to see him. While the procedure was not the easiest , the doctor and the staff kept me laughing and at ease the whole time. I will be back again next year and years to come.

My ears were stretched and I hated them - Pittsburgh, PA

Dr Alvarez is the best. I had to have my ears fixed as I had them stretched and they looked horrible. He was so nice and kind and a miracle worker. My ears look perfect now. I would highly suggest if you're in the Pittsburgh area and want to fix your ears from stretching or they are torn that he is your man! He is funny and down to earth and you won't be disappointed at his work and his staff...

BBL - Wexford, PA

Dr. C is the best! The office staff is wonderful and the follow up is concerned and consistent. Dr. C is honest, strait forward and still manages to be kind. He is an expert and always takes the time to educate you about desired procedures. He basically saved me from getting a circumferencial lift by sculpting my bum with a BBL. The circumferential lift would have been expensive and harder to heal from. I also received a laser from him and even though I was squirmy he was patient and concerned about my comfort. He has injected filler for me and botox and NO BRUISING! I will never see another PS! Plastic surgeons can be such egomaniacs but Dr. C is kind, informed and an expert at what he does.
