Tuned Up at 37 11/6/2012

A couple of years after my kids were born, I finally got that my body was not going to recover without some help. A friend of mine went to Dr Alavi, so I decided to check him out. His patience and great attitude made my decision easy. My Liposuction and my breast augmentation, with a little lift, make me feel gorgeous again. What a great experience! more

Dr. Alavi is awesome! 12/22/2011

After having 4 kids back to back I was extremely selfconscious! I am on the heavier side but never really gave my body the opportunity to develop properly. I went to a few different plastic surgeons and then I met Dr.Alavi. When I first met him I had such good vibes and he made me feel so comfortable. The staff welcomed me and made sure I was content at all times. After deciding I wanted to go with Dr. Alavi for my breast augmentation, a date was set very quickly. I was very nervous but when I went back for my pre op Dr. Alavi did my measurements and assured me everything would come out great. The night before my surgery I received a call from the anesthesiologists and she took the rest of my nervousness away. The day of my surgery I felt like a star because of the way the staff accommodated me. I would recommend him to everyone! more


I had an awesome experience with Dr. Alavi! He is soo caring and understanding. He made me feel very confident about my procedure and worked with me through my concerns. I had breast augmentation done that is truly amazing. I feel like a new woman now and he has made me more confident of who I am. The results were amazing I had no bruising and my husband is thrilled with the new me! I can't thank Dr. Alavi enough as no words could express my gratitude for what he has done for me! I reccomend him highly to anyone looking for someone who knows what they are doing and wants it done right the first time! And the price was below others I checked but the quality was far more than expected! Thank you Dr. Alavi you are truly amazing!! AAAA++++ more

This place is incredible! 7/6/2011

This man is a great surgeon. One of the best. His skill and care made me feel safe and comfortable throughout my entire procedure. His staff was also very cordial, and made the appointment happen without a hitch. After my facelift and liposuction, I feel like twenty years have vanished from my face and twenty pounds have disappeared from my hips. I highly recommend this surgeon to anyone in the San Diego/La Jolla area. more

Amazing Surgeon 6/23/2011

Dr Alavi provides excellent service and care. As a patient, I was impressed by the friendliness of the staff and their outstanding ability to effectively take care of me before, during and after my procedure. In addition, the work that Dr Alavi did for me is truly a work of art. After my face lift and liposuction, my body looks better now than it has in 20 years! I highly recommend Dr Alavi?s expertise and his incredible staff to anyone who is considering cosmetic surgery. more

Dr. Alavi is the best! 6/23/2011

Dr. Alavi has really changed my life. I have had 3 kids and my body is not that bad, but my chest looked like I had flat pancakes. I never even wanted my husband to see me. I finally got the nerve to do something about it but I was so nervous about going in to the appointment. The staff made me feel right at home and Dr. Alavi made me feel so comfortable and didnt made a big deal about anything. He was honest and polite. Going into surgery, I wasnt sure if I was very thorough about what I wanted for the exact shape of my breast and all that. He did his markings and I felt better and now 2 weeks, I am in love! I feel amazing and I cant wait to show them off! (not naked lol) I now walk through the stores and look at strapless tops and dresses and get so excited to be able to wear them! I cannot thank Dr. Alavi enough for what he has done and the after care that I received was amazing. I would recommend him to anyone! more

The Best Cosmetic Surgeon Around!!! 5/31/2011

After having two kids, my body looked absolutely -terrible-. I had heard about Dr. Alavi from one of my friends, who said that she had an amazing job done. After I had my procedure, I can easily say that he is among the best surgeons around. He was amazingly personable, and made sure I felt comfortable the whole way through. His staff was also equally amazing, providing kind, quality service every time I entered the office. Not to mention the end result: I look and feel fantastic after my procedure! I highly recommend Dr. Alavi to *anyone* who is looking for a cosmetic surgeon. more

Super Doctor, an Artist. Highly Recommend Him. 4/30/2011

For many years I have been unhappy with my breasts and my body. After having two children and breast-fed both of them I no longer had the body that I could be happy with. About 6 months ago my husband and I decided to do something about this. We interview 3 plastic surgeons and extensively look at their work and education. Having a husband who is a lawyer really helped us with this process. My husband and I both felt very comfortable wit Dr. Alavi and I had my Breast Lift, Tummy Tuck and Liposuction done with him three months ago. The experience has bee terrific and I could not be happier with my results and the care I was given. First of all Dr. Alavi listen to what I really wanted then he explain to me every step, to achieve what I wanted very carefully. The procedure was painless and the followup was just amazing. He either saw me or called me everyday during my recovery. Even one day my husband and I were w having a hard time with my garment and he sends his nurse to my house to help us, WOW. I love my results, my scars are barely visible and I feel so much better about myself. We are going to Hawaii this summer and I just bought a new 2 piece swim suite to wear. I would have never imagine to get one six months ago. He is my hero and WE BOTH HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM. more

Best Experience Ever!!! 4/22/2011

I had breast augmentation a few months ago- I was so happy with my results- The staff is so professional, warm and friendly- The whole experience from beginning to end was fantastic!!! I would highly recommend Dr Alavi to others and definitely go to have my next procedure at his facility- Love it!! more

Love this mans work! 4/18/2011

There are not enough words to describe how wonderful Dr. Alavi and his staff are. I went to Dr. Alavi for a breast lift and a tummy tuck and one day after surgery I was already pleased with the results. Eight weeks post-surgery, (five dress sizes later and my breast now back where they belong) I just can't stop smiling when I see myself in the mirror. I found Dr. Alavi to be personable and truly felt he took an interest in me and what I wanted from having these procedures done. He was a true professional as well as his staff, but more importantly they were all extremely friendly and caring when it came to my procedures. My results have far exceeded my expectaions and I will be grateful for life to Dr. Alavi and his staff, they have given me a huge boost in confidence. more

The best 3/17/2011

My breast augmentation was the first surgery i have ever had, with that said I was very nervous. Dr. Alavi and his staff are the best, the made me feel comfortable, answered all my questions, I remember a couple days after he had called me himself on a Sunday to check on me.I was able to email him directly and get a quick answer to any questions that I had. His nurses are great they made me feel like I had known them for years and were so helpful. I could not see my self going to anyone else... I would recommend him to anyone and everyone, he is truly the Best! Thank you Dr.Alavi your time and positive, kind caring attitude means the world to me. more

Thrilled with my new face and my straight nose 3/9/2011

I am a Registered Nurse (RN) and, at 54, I had been thinking that my face was looking older than I felt inside. Also, my crooked nose seemed to be getting even more crooked. I started considering a face lift so I began to search for a surgeon. I had heard about Dr Sassan Alavi from RN?s that I work with and also from Physicians, whose wives had gone to Dr Alavi for their face lifts. They seemed very happy with their results and their experience, so I decided to schedule a consult with him. During my consult with Dr Alavi, he generously took the time to listen to and address all of my questions and concerns. I knew, even though I had seen several other surgeons, that Dr Alavi was the person that I wanted to work with, both technically and personally. Now, with my new face and my new straight nose, I want to express that the experience was great with Dr Alavi and his staff and I am thrilled with my results. I no longer see an older looking face when I look in the mirror. A few of the physicians that I work with have even commented about what a wonderful result Dr Alavi has created for me. As I join the group of super satisfied patients, I wanted to let others know as well. more

I love the way I look again, thank you Dr. Alavi 3/6/2011

Recently as I looked in the mirror I no Longer saw my Self. I saw a women much older than 57 and what I was felling, so I decided to do something about it. I went and saw three different plastic surgeons and I felt the most comfortable with Dr. Alavi. I had heard about him from my stylist. She had told me she has seen everyone?s results and his results are so much better than others. I also did my due diligent and found out his training is excellent for facial plastic surgery. Even his competitors talked highly of him. I meet with Dr. Alavi twice prior to my procedure. He listened to me and took notes of what was bothering me. He gave me several options and what to expect and did not try to sell me any more procedures than what I needed, as some others did. I had a Face and Neck Lift, and an Eye lift done by him six months ago. After the procedure he either saw me or called me everyday like I was his only patient, it was incredible. He even gave his cell phone number to my husband to call him if we had any question. I did have some swelling the first week, which quickly went away and my results begin to show. I LOVE MY RESULTS. I look exactly like myself but no more hanging neck, jowling or droopy mouth and baggy eyes. My husband was at first hesitant on me doing this and has now become Dr. Alavis number one fan. He even sends two of his co workers to see him and they are just as happy as we are. We both feel very comfortable to highly recommend him. more

could not be any better, Im loving it. 1/22/2011

My face was looking older and tired and I had put on a few pounds of fat while getting through those demanding years of raising children. I consulted with Dr Sassan Alavi because my good friend loves the work that she had done by Dr Alavi and his consults are complimentary. I was a little scared to have a Face Lift and I was worried about the risks, although I did not know much about it and how easy it turned out to be. I wanted to do something to feel better about myself.During my consult appointment with Dr Alavi, he was so friendly and knowledgeable. He was also very patient with my endless questions. He intently listened to me for what I really wanted. I immediately knew that Dr. Alavi would be MY surgeon and he agreed that a Face Lift and Liposuction would definitely improve my appearance. He met with me several times until all my questions were answered and I felt Comfortable.The staff at Dr Alavi's office are also very wonderful and supportive. It feels like I am part of the ""family"" when I visit. Somehow I got up the courage to show up on the morning of my procedures, and I am sure glad that I did! The Liposuction removed all of those ugly bulges in just one day! I have gone from size 10 to size 6, and my new face... Wow!... I love that! Now, I look in the mirror and I see a much younger and rejuvenated face rather than a tired and saggy one that made me feel old before my time. The people that I meet see a rejuvenated face too and treat me as if I am 10 to 15 years younger now, which is really how I feel inside anyway. Thanks Dr Alavi and staff for helping me get back to where I used to be. I am loving it! more

Very grateful refreshed looking 55 year old 1/19/2011

I turned 55 years old, Nov. 2010. I go to the gym and take yoga a few times a week. I am in decent shape for a man my age but I was very unhappy with how my neck and eyes were looking. No amount of exercise was going to change my face. My neck was showing my age and my blue green eyes, which I think are one of my best features, could hardly be seen anymore because of the extra skin hanging over my upper eye lids. I decided to do something about my appearance and went to a number of consults around the San Diego area. I was most comfortable with Dr. Alavi, his consultation and his office staff. Dr. Alavi was honest and upfront when answering my questions. I felt the solutions he offered were very realistic. He gave me a few options, including the prices and I made a decision to have a face and neck lift. I also did my eyes, uppers and lowers. My outcome is fantastic and I could not be happier. I feel great about my surgery and I know it shows in my overall attitude. My experience from beginning to end has been wonderful. My surgery was Dec. 7. and I was back at work in two weeks. After a few days, I had very little swelling and surprisingly not much pain. The office staff was so caring to me. I just had my last follow up appointment and I truly feel like I made some new friends in his office. If you are thinking about a cosmetic procedure like I was, I would give them a call. I am one grateful refreshed looking 55 year old. Thank you Dr. Alavi!! more
