5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

After 5 Kids I Gave Myself a Treat

After having five children and nursing them my breasts had become flat and odd looking. They were never big and I always wanted to have an augmentation but could never justify doing it. After I had my last child I decided to treat myself and I am so happy that I did and that I choose Dr. Calvijo-Alverez to do my procedure! I had another consultation and while I was excited to have it done...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

22 Years Old, 132 Pounds, No Kids. Was a 34b

He was a wonderful doctor, made me feel very comfortable, and answered all my questions in detail so I understood exactly what he was going to do.

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...

550cc Saline over the Muscle Implant Removal

I've had my implants for 13 years. I am currently wearing a 34 G/GG and have a lot of pain and discomfort due to how big they are. I was a 34 D prior to implants. I can't not find any clothes or bras they actually fit me well. My biggest symptoms are extreme exhaustion and feeling like I can't breathe. I have spent many months on this site researching my procedure and thought I would share my...

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

This man is a GOD with skill and grace!!!!!

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...
