i had a previous real self account . But im making a new one because I want to give full details from the beginning to now ! there's not many detailed reviews on Dr. Sergio Alvarez so I am going to make sure im detailed as possible going from day 1 of me deciding on the breast aug. Orginally I was scheduled with Dr. Ghurani , due to a conflict of schedule I was told that sergio alvarez would do my procedure. I reviewed him , looked up his work and decided that I would move forward and go with dr alvarez.

Spectrum aesthetics

My coordinator was Emily, she was fine . i spoke to her when I needed to , i called her , she answered. Nothing much more to discuss in terms of her "customer service" . It was average . When it was time for me to get my lab work, I spoke with kyok which is the nurse, she was very pleasant , professional, and returned phone calls. I got my blood work through my primary physican because my insurance covered my blood work cost. I emailed them to kyok and she emailed responded next day stating I was cleared . This was 2 weeks prior to surgery

Day before surgery

My surgery was scheduled for august 19, My boyfriend and I arrived in miami august 18th . I checked into my hotel and went to spectrum , I received my surgery time , which was 9:00 am . The office is average.. Alot of gals sitting around with pain in their eyes lol literally looking like death lol one girl literally had a dress om covered in blood from her bbl . But overall the office / front office was average.. Not very roomy . The receptionist were extensive kind and helpful . Pleasant . I didnt get the cold shoulder from anyone and get the impression that they didnt care, which I have heard from other reviewers but I did not experience that at all.

Surgery day!

We arrived at spectrum at like 8:50 am / got checked in . Was taken back by a nurse at 10:00 ish where the nurse did a urine analysis to ensure I wasn't pregnant and also took my blood pressure. After that I literally waited in the room for doctor alvarez until 12:00 when chris (male nurse) came in and introduced himself, he was extremely handsome and pleasant , asked me questions pertaining my health. At 12:30 doctor Alvarez came in, he was very kind , we talked about what I wanted and he marked me and we agreed on 425 ccs in one breast and 445 in the other. In hopes of making my a full D from the A cup I was . At 1:00 i was taken back to the room to have surgery by chris. He laid me on the bed and put the IV in .. He had my brethe into the oxygen mask and I was out !
I woke up at 1:45ish and was freezing , not really in pain but drowsy, a gal next to me was screaming and crying, the nurses were telling her to calm down , i was ready to go because she was overwhelming me . The nurses gave me 3 blankets and came back and told me my boyfriend was here. They wheeled another girl out first , than came and dressed me and took me out to my boyfriend, he told me that they initially gave him the wrong girl . Im super drowsy at this point and im like what is going on . They gave him my prescriptions to fill , they asked me my permission before doing so . The car ride back to the hotel was ok I was drowsy and uber driver drove like a nut case . I immediately got in bed and passed out . I was extremely nauseous when I woke up and threw up all day . I couldn't eat anything. Im not big on pain meds but my boyfriend insisted on me taking them but I wasnt in pain but thought it would be the best idea . Of course I threw the pain meds up . Sleeping was awful the pressure hurt my back and thats been a majority of my pain . Its been solely my back and sides were bruised but other than that I have high pain tolerance so on a scale from 1-10 the experience was like a 4 this whole surgery . Worse part was the throwing up.
