[Alvarez Doll!] Killer Curvature W/ Perfect Projection - Miami Beach, FL
I sought after the BBL, or Brazilian Butt Lift,...

It Is What It Is, Dolls :)
So after researching the credentials of at least 100 websites and credentials of facilities, I settled on Spectrum Aesthetics as they had a special that was just right- not so expensive that I am worried about why everyone else's is less than mine, and not so cheap that I'd be worried about the outcome and a little suspicious. So, once I found out the price, I was informed that only a specific doctor, Dr. Sergio Alvarez, did it for that price as a special. I, being as worry-prone as I am, was a little nervous as I assumed that he did a cheaper price than the others because he was new to the Plastic Surgery scene. I can happily say I was WRONG! After researching his name, I saw a couple of pictures on realself of his work, but I couldn't be sure they were real because of the small and sometimes incoherent review paragraphs. Other times there wouldn't be pictures at all, but I understand not wanting to bare it all for the internet. (Now I realize that these were patients who didn't fully understand the concept of writing review! You're suppose to help people make decision, not confuse em' more ha!) Then on his facebook account and IG, I only saw mostly pictures of him and celebrities and not of his work. I thought, "Great he has positive social rapport, which means he probably does a good job since celebrities would not allow themselves to be seen with a guy that did horrible ones. Buuuuut the only thing this convinces me of is that this guy takes awesome pictures." So, I continued on my search for his work and I found his website. I also found and cross referenced his credentials. Everything was genuine, in place, and believable. A guy with his rap sheet could definitely charge what he wanted so I started to get super happy at the price I locked in my procedure for. (NOTE: Some weeks after I made my deposit for my procedure, the special did, indeed, expire. I was sooo lucky!) Now, after check in and going through preliminary screening, finances, etc., I met DR. ALVAREZ. My initial encounter with the medical assistant wasn't the best because I was sort of scared and agitated by the short and cold treatment. Dr. Alverez caught me as I bolted from the consultation room to grab my boyfriend to separate me from the thick tension in the air. (SN: The med-techs are all awesome in the end! I was just being a liiiiiiil sensitive because I wasn't from Miami, this was my first procedure, and my TN "southern hospitality" probably came off as annoying or dimwitted *shrugs*......oh and I may have ruined my initial impression by trying to impress her and show her I was familiar with things because I was a nursing student... probably came off as a "donkey"......but all was well in the end! :) ] So, back to the story, Dr. Alvarez asked me how everything was going. I said fine, even though he could tell I wasn't. So he invited my boyfriend and I back to the consultation room and was very personable. He asked me how I wanted my results, I showed him my wish pictures, and he said he would do what he could. I was kind of bummed (no pun intended) because I knew I was in the smaller weight category being 5'9 and 176 pounds, but I simply said, "Do with it what you can." I spoke with the anesthetist, and he was awesome as well! After I was marked up, I was taken in a room, and I was hooked up to and EKG, IV Drip, etc. The anesthetist as well as Dr. Alvarez held a light and funny conversation with me.....AND THEN I WOKE UP. If there was pain on a scale past 10, I don't think even THAT would describe the pain of my first 24 hours, post-op. But, Dr. Alvarez wrote my prescriptions ahead of time and they helped immensely. The second day post- op, I received my first lymphatic message and well, the only thing I could think was MY CURVES ARE KILLER AND MY PROJECTION IS TO DIE FOR!!!! Even when I went for my appointment with him the following day, I told him that I was extremely impressed with how wide my hips were, how tight and flat my tummy was, and how round my posterior was. The appointment began and ended with me complimenting his work. In addition, his surgical expertise has to be of legends because I VIRTUALLY HAVE NO SCARRING. Swelling, yes...Tenderness...expected...but not much fluid..... I think I only have one bruise though, and you can't even tell where my incisions are. However, this may depend on your skin elasticity. What I do know, is that DR. ALVAREZ DELIVERS THE GOODS! Don't let anyone else tell you otherwise. This review is entirely too long and coherent to be fake so, there you have it! GREAT DOCTOR. GREAT PRICE. GREAT RESULTS.
