Breast Augmentation

I have a coworker who went to Dr. C for her breast augmentation and said she wouldn't go anywhere else! After thinking everything over I checked out the website which was an awesome thing to do, the gallery was great to go through and take a look at all the women with a similar build to my own. Now I know every body is unique in it's own way but it was still a great way to get a feel for things. I booked my consolation and was a little nervous at first but as soon as I walked through the doors the whole atmosphere just put me at ease. You are greeted by some friendly, lovely ladies who are more than helpful! I met with Ashley and she was just about as great as they come! She was so so so helpful, and so knowledgeable you can definitely tell she loves what she is doing. You are given a lot of information at once and it can feel a bit overwhelming but they do a great job at breaking it down for you. This was my first and only consolation for this procedure, and after we were finished talking I was sold on them doing it for me! I had no reason to go anywhere else, and I am so glad I made the decision to choose them. After I had committed the communication was constant and very consistent and much appreciated!! The day of surgery I was a little nervous/anxious but the female anesthesiologist was the cutest thing ever and was so accommodating to my needs, all the ladies back in the sugary wing were fantastic and so friendly!! And the results, wow I am so pleased with them!!! If I were to go back and do it again there is no doubt in my mind I would go with Dr. C again!! I have already told several people if they ever consider anything to go here!! Thank you guys for everything :)

Breast Augmentation

I left my surgery pain free and was back to work in two days. I love my new breasts, their natural looking and they feel natural as well. The scar is very minimal and is looking better and better every day. Dr. CIARAVINO is amazing and I look forward to returning for a tummy tuck.

The staff makes you feel like you are the only patient and Dr. Caravino is not only the best in Houston, but he is patient and listens carefully to your needs. Overall just a great place to have any cosmetic procedure performed!

Breast Augmentation

Dr.Ciaravino and his staff were absolutely amazing before, during, and after my procedure. The recovery process was very smooth and I was back to my normal routine within a week. I highly recommend Dr.Ciaravino to anyone looking into a breast Augmentation. The amount of time it took to do the surgery was less than 2 hours and that was absolutely amazing. I was back at home in no time.

Breast Lift

My dissatisfaction is from the break in communication caused by a late appointment start on the actual surgical day and the pre op appointment. During the pre op appointment I thought we had decided a size for implants. The day of surgery was a mess for me personally as I was nervous and extremely anxious then there was a long wait. The nurse came in and said that there actually wasn’t a decision on my implant size and we needed to decided. At pre op I’m pretty sure we decided 375 because I later saw it in notes I had written down but the day of surgery we went with 300 because I was more nervous than anything about the outcome. While I appreciate the staff taking my nerves into consideration I thought this is why we had the pre op to avoid nervous last minute decisions. My mind was on my kids in childcare, the actual surgery, the logistics and many other fears ... clearly I should have take more than a half pill for nerves. I am overall very unhappy with the size of my implants because I still feel like my boobs have a sagginess to them instead of fullness that may have come with bigger implants. The surgical scars are clearly the result of a skilled surgeon which I am thankful for but feel the over all look was hindered because of last minute decions and nerves.

Breast Augmentation

I appreciated how Dr. Ciaravino listened to my needs and addressed my concerns willingly and respectfully. I also appreciated that he supported my conservative approach to breast augmentation and didn't try to talk me into larger implants. He helped me achieve the exact results I was seeking. If I had gone with any larger implants, they would not have looked natural or real on me. My goal was to augment to restore fullness I had lost due to weight loss and breast-feeding without drawing awkward attention to myself. I couldn't be more pleased with the results and my recovery thus far. Thank you Dr. Ciaravino. I feel more feminine and more confident in my dress and overall appearance. My body looks more proportional and it has motivated me to continue my exercise and diet practices. Before, no matter how fit I was, I couldn't wear certain clothes due to the deflation of my small breasts. It was very discouraging and frustrating. I felt like a part of me was missing. I now feel more complete and physically whole.Now I can wear anything with confidence. My results look natural for my bone structure and frame. The size of my implants fit my frame well. It don't look like I've had implants. Choosing to have implants and take care of myself has also been very empowering and a contradiction to my past habit of placing my needs last. I feel better about choosing me for once and this has made a positive impact on my mental attitude towards myself since the surgery.I also feel sexier and more desirable which has enhanced my sex life with my spouse. I am grateful.

Breast Lift

Only four days out from surgery and extremely happy as well as impressed by that fact that the doctor listened to my needs and gave me the results I wanted. I never thought I would be this satisfied! I am also just as impressed by his staff and how caring they are, the entire experience has been wonderful!!!

I had a minor complication following surgery and the staff stayed in contact with me throughout the weekend and eased all my concerns as well as got me into the office promptly. The issue was taken care of...NO QUESTIONS ASKED! I was so impressed with the professionalism and assertiveness of Dr. C and Stephanie in guaranteeing my complete satisfaction.

From my initial consultation to my post op check up everyone I encountered was amazing. They were not only very informative and professional about every step of the procedure, but also they were very personable, kind, respectful and paid attention to every detail. I am equally very happy about my results. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone seeking any type of service that they provide.
