5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Best doctor I've ever had!

I was recommended to go to Dr. McCafferty for breast augmentation. Not only did I have an excellent, positive experience, I actually call his office for recommendations for other doctors or health questions! Bed side manners were excellent and he really made me feel relaxed and that I could trust him. Couldn't be happier with my results and healing process. One of the best decisions in my life...

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

A positive experience with terrific results.

For five years I have considered liposuction but never felt comfortable with the other doctors or practices that I consulted with. Dr. McCafferty's name kept coming up and when I finally made the appointment for my consultation I knew I had found the right person for the procedure. Cannot say enough for the professionalism of his staff and the nurses. When necessary they were comforting and...

Dr. Flavia Davit and her staff are exceptionally caring and communicate clearly - answering all questions with great patience. Dr. Davit is an incredible surgeon. I could not have imagined a better result.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Wonderful experience & money well spent!

I highly recommend Dr. Mccafferty and his staff to anyone looking for his type of expertise! As soon as you walk in the office you met with unsurpassed kindness and professionalism. The appointments are always on time, with time taken to explain the procedure and what can or cannot be done!

5 out of 5 stars NeoGraft

Thin Hair No More! - Confidence Builder! - Pittsburgh, PA

I've always had very thin, fine hair and thought I had to live with it. Not anymore!!!! I had the Neograft procedure done and am so happy with the result already!!! The hair on top of my head would separate and go flat in no time, now it holds much better and now you cannot see through to my scalp! The best part, nobody knew I had it done. There was literally no down time and since there is...

2 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Not sure

Do not understand his reputation. Not worth your money or time. Not a good plastic surgeon. He did a rhinoplasty on me and then revised it and it has not looked good at all. Could be worse in fact. Save yourself and go somewhere else. I am not sure where he got the good reputation he has because it was a mistake. Not happy.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Removal

58 Years Old, Double Implant/capsule Removal After 28 Years! SO HAPPY! Pittsburgh, PA

At age 30 I had 36 A/B, tubular breasts with all of the breast tissue immediately behind the nipples. The breast augmentation surgery merely created a larger version of my natural configuration-- I became a C cup. I will say that I loved the way I looked-- I felt more balanced in my appearance. My breasts felt soft and natural. I did not have the coveted, classic "powderpuff" breasts, but...

did not get dr mccafferty's reputation - Pittsburgh, PA

Had a breast augmentation in April of 2012. I had several appointments before surgery and was very specific with what I wanted. I asked for them under the muscle and did not get that. The right implant was falling and has always been lower than the left. To date - the right implant hangs 2 inches lower than the left and they both have fallen and ripped the stitching underneath to a...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

I'm a Better Me!!!! Pittsburgh, PA

I am extremely happy with my breast augmentation results. Dr. McCafferty made me feel very comfortable and I really liked how he took the time to explain all my options. My results look natural and fit my body. I am a better me!! I can’t say enough about his professionalism and how wonderful everyone in the office treated me. I would recommend him to anyone, best in Pittsburgh!

5 out of 5 stars Latisse

Great - Go For It - Pittsburgh, PA

I have been using Latisse for over six months now and thoroughly have enjoyed the results. My eyelashes more than doubled in length without any side effects. After reaching the fourth months of everyday use, I am now applying every second day. I will continue to use for life. Great value ($180 for 5ml bottle) for the benefits!!!
