5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

52 Yr. Old Needing Help with 20 Yr. Old Implants That Had Leaked and Formed a Capsul, Plus Lift and New Implants. Spokane, WA

Dr. Oliva was informative and made me feel very confident in putting my surgery (6 hrs. long) in his hands! He has kept a wonderful eye on me after the surgery and answered all my questions on healing and when it was safe to do certain activities like the gym again. If I was to rate every aspect of the experience I would give him a 10! He is amazing and so is his staff. Loved them!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Best Thing I Ever Did! - Spokane, WA

Dr. Oliva is a very intelligent and talented doctor. He is very honest and doesn't sugar coat things which is a quality that I greatly admire. He made my breasts look better than I could have ever imagined and I will be using him in the future when I decide it's time for an upgrade. Cosmetic surgery is a big deal and I wouldn't go to anyone but the best. You get what you pay for and Dr. Oliva is worth it!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Dr. Oliva is extremely thorough in describing your options and really wanting to know what YOU want. I didn't want huge boobs that would turn heads just to look normal. I really felt like he heard me and did a wonderful job getting them just how I wanted them. The office staff and nurses have all been wonderful. Overall a very good experience. I would highly recommend Dr. Oliva!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

29 Years Old and Decided to Do It - Spokane, WA

I met with Dr. Oliva several times before my procedure. He is very knowledgable and explained the process very well. He aanswered all my questions and made me feel very comfortable. My mom had breast cancer and so I wanted my implants to be under the muscle to make mammograms more accurate. Dr. Oliva listened to my concerns and placed my implants under the muscle. He did a fantastic job and I love the results! My mom had gone to him for reconstruction after her mastectomy and felt very comfortable and at ease having him preform my surgery. I would recommend him to anyone, he does such a nice job!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

29 Years Old with Two Kids. Spokane, WA

I had a great experience with Dr. Olivia and his staff. It wasn't an easy decision to get this procedure done. I was very nervous and they made me feel very comfortable. Dr. Olivia is very knowledgeable and the results I got are EXACTLY what I asked for. I couldn't be any happier. Also the nurses who helped me the morning of my surgery were fantastic! They made me feel like it was so easy and...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction with Latissimus Flap

Dr. Oliva (Spokane) Was Heaven Sent. Spokane, WA

My initial impression of Dr. Oliva, was that he was calm, elegant, knowledgable, and respectful of me and my concerns. As an ex-RN, I entered Dr. Oliva's office with 2 pages (lined paper) of questions I had for him. He patiently answered each question, ending with a statement, "Those are good questions." He has always welcomed my questions, and has been thorough in his answers. He has given me a lot of time and attention....never seeming pressed for time or annoyed. He is a master of his trade; a scientist, an artist. He is the doctor's doctor. My gynecologist and GP thought his work on me was exceptional, and both seemed to reinforce that he was essentially a genius at his profession. My new breasts look MUCH better now, than before my mastectomy, all thanks to Dr. Oliva. I will forever grateful to him for the gift he has given me. I no longer have to live in fear of breast cancer. PS: My mother is now 83 years old. Her physician who told her to 'get her things in order' is dead. Sometimes God has a different plan! If you can't tell, as of yet, I would most highly recommend Dr. Alfonso Oliva. He is THE plastic surgeon to perform breast reconstruction in Spokane, WA.
