5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Best Breast Doctor

I had a stellar experience with the Ciaravino team throughout my breast augmentation. The girls will by your biggest aide & are familiar with every aspect of the process. Dr. Ciaravino provides you with a optimal range of cc's, for your anatomy, explaining the results achieved by each. The procedure is extremely easy on the body. Being 1 week post-op, the "feeling" of the implants are...

34 year old, replace old implants

Can't get any better than dr.C, 12 years ago I had a breast augmentation done and the recovery wasn't nearly as easy and the experience wasn't nearly as good! The nurses in his office are amazing for just regular appts and on the day of surgery. Dr. C really knows what he's doing and has amazing bedside manner too. I would never go anywhere else!

Wow, he does great work! I just got out of surgery a few hours ago. I did see some negative reviews on this dr but I honestly think they are wrong. Don't be fooled by these reviews saying his staff or dr don't spend time with you it's not true. I believe and feel that it's very efficient and streamlined. The process is just very straightforward, he is straightforward. If you are looking for a...

23, Wanted an Even and Fuller BA - Houston, TX

Dr. C really knows what he is talking about. I originally wanted to go bigger, but after taking a close look and explaining to me in detail what size was more appropriate for my body shape, I trusted him. He really is the professional and loves to teach new things to his patients while catering to their individual body shape. His attention to detail and addressing my concerns were things that really stood out to me from orher plastic surgeons.

47 Yrs Old, 16 Yr. Old Saline Implants in Need of Replacement! Houston, TX

I'm beyond happy with Dr. Ciaravino, his staff and my results. If you are considering doing any type of plastic surgery Dr. Ciaravino is the man! He is a true artist when it comes to the female body. I had a breast lift with my implants replaced and lipo on my flanks. I'm not even a full week into my recovery and I'm amazed! My breasts are perfect! I have feeling in my nipples. I can already see my hour glass figure from the lipo! I'm so excited to see the final results. Dr. Ciaravino truly cares about his patients. Everyone has been wonderful beginning with the consultation all the way thru to my post op. My patient consultant Jessica was awesome! She made me feel so comfortable & at ease thru everything. I feel like I can say or ask her anything. If I ever decide to have anything else done to battle mean old mother nature I'll definitely have Dr Ciaravino in my corner. He is amazing!!! There is no other plastic surgeon for me. I love, love love Dr. Ciaravino!!!

Confidence Restored! - Houston, TX

Dr. Ciaravino and his staff were wonderful. He discussed the best size implant for me and my individual body type. They also explained the pros and cons of saline vs silicone gel, and helped me make the best decision for my surgery. My experience was very positive with this doctor and his staff, and I will be sending anyone I know who wants a cosmetic procedure done to them.

32A to a 32C 300cc Mentor Memory Gel - Dr. Ciaravino / Houston, TX

I'm 29, 5',2" 110lbs and went from a 32A to a 32C using 300cc in each breast. (Silicone Mentor MemoryGel) My results are beautiful. :) thank you!!! I had done my research, looking for the best breast augmentation Dr. on and off for a little over a year. My mother had experienced some bad cosmetic surgery in the past with other Dr's so I was reluctant about my own. Research is so important!!! Dr. ciaravino and his staff as you have probably read, are an amazing bunch, they really do their best to make sure you as the patient are informed and comfortable. I felt like they were honest and helpful, I was going for a more natural look and that's exactly what I got. I had no issues before during or after surgery, everything went smoothly and according to plan. Dr. Ciaravino's specialty is breast augmentation, there is no denying that. I would definitely recommend him for breast augmentation.

29yo 5' 7" 142lbs, nursed 4 beautiful babies, 375cc Mentor HP silicone OVERS

I am very pleased with my care from Dr. Ciaravino and his staff. I had a great overall experience and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him in the future. I'm very satisfied with my results thus far. I think my needs and desires as a patient are an excellent example of how good Dr. Ciaravino is at his profession . I was not a typical sub pectoral silicone case. What worked best for me was an over the muscle placement. He truly takes each patient and does what is best for that individual. I couldn't have asked for anything better and I would do it over again in a heartbeat.
