5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction Revision
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.

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.

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...

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.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Removal
During my pre-op consultation Dr. Clavijo-Alvarez was exceptionally kind and personable. He spent an hour and a half discussing the procedure in depth with me and never made me feel rushed or uncomfortable in any way. He informed me of both the potential positives of the procedure as well as the risks without sugar coating anything. This has been hands down the most pleasant and informative experience I have ever had with ANY doctor. Before my surgery began Dr. Clavijo and his staff were incredibly friendly and made me feel comfortable and at ease. Dr. Clavijo very carefully marked out the areas on my chest where he would operate. I had to comment to him on how when I was marked prior to getting implants in, the surgeon at the time literally just slapped sharpie all over the front of my body. He then gave me his personal cell phone number so that I could contact him directly should I have any issues after surgery (also did not happen in my previous surgical experience). Before I went under anesthesia they brought my husband back, which was also very nice and wasn't allowed in my prior surgery experiences. I even received a call from Dr. Clavijo himself the afternoon after my surgery! Dr. Clavijo and I agreed prior to surgery that he would either remove the implants and perform a periareolar (around the nipple only) lift, or he would just simply remove the implants depending on how the results looked. He could have very easily just decided to perform the lift since I, being under, wouldn't have known the results anyway. He decided my results were fine and it was best for me to wait it out and see how I liked them before spending money on a lift and adding unnecessary scars. After the procedure he informed me of this and during my post-op appointment he promptly brought me a check paying me back for the lift that was not performed. It was clear that he cared more about my being happy with the result than he cared about making money. Dr. Clavijo will most definitely be my first choice for any procedures that I may decide to get in the future. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon who is honest, extremely capable and who actually cares about his patients.
