About Michael Ciaravino:

Texas plastic surgeon, Dr. Michael Ciaravino is one of the world's top breast implant surgeons. Each year, he performs over 700 breast augmentation cases which is an accomplishment met by very few plastic surgeons. It's this experience that allows Dr. Ciaravino to treat his patients with the utmost quality of care, and consistently give his patients beautiful results. He is a perfectionist who pays great attention to detail and strives to give each patient the look that they desire.

Dr. Ciaravino's background has contributed greatly to his success. His interest in beauty, art, and medicine made plastic surgery a perfect career choice. He completed his plastic surgery training in Houston ("the home of the breast implant"), in the program started by the surgeon who invented breast implants. He also studied reconstructive breast surgery at M.D. Anderson, a premier cancer center.

Dr. Ciaravino has received several local and national awards of distinction. He was voted one of America's Top Plastic Surgeons by The Research Council of America and has been listed as one of America's Top Doctors by the Castle-Connelly. Dr. Ciaravino was also selected by the Mentor Corporation, a leading manufacturer of the breast implants, to assist in product analysis and development.

Dr. Michael Ciaravino is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. He is also a member of several medical affiliations, including the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the Texas Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Medical Association, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, and the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

Breast Augmentation

Doctor Ciaravino gave me exactly what I wanted. I love the way my breasts look. His assistants were very knowledgeable, helpful and extremely nice! I love the way my breasts look. I wanted natural and that's what Doctor Ciaravino gave me.

Breast Implant Revision

Staff was extremely friendly and doc did an excellent job.

Breast Augmentation

The staff was very friendly and helpful through the entire process. My results are exactly what I wanted and asked for as far as size and shape with a more natural look.


All staff, very attentive as well as the doctor. They take great care in listening to the patients situation to make the patient feel at ease.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Ciaravino was amazing, he made me feel more comfortable and I really felt confident that he wouldn’t make me “too big”.. the only time I felt neglected was during recovery. When I woke up I was in a lot of pain. To the point where I felt like I couldn’t breath and the recovery nurse was no were to be found. I was in and out of conciseness, unable to stay awake or keep my eyes open. But when she tried to help me up she didn’t ask how much pain I was in. When I got home I felt like I was in “too” much pain- bases off what they told me to expect in the office.. I would have been satisfied if they would have controlled my pain before sending me in a long car ride.

Breast Lift

Staff is friendly and everything runs efficiently. Everyone seems very knowledgeable and all my questions were answered.

Breast Augmentation

I am very happy with my results. I like my outcome.

Breast Augmentation

The accessibility of the staff after my procedure to answer questions I had was phenomenal. The results are amazing, I couldn't be happier! The staff and Dr. C are all very knowledgable and very helpful. Dr. C did a fantastic job with my procedure and I am excited to see the final results once I am completely healed.

Scar Revision

Dr C and his staff are very professional, compassionate and knowledgeable. I never feel rushed and time is spent to ensure all of my questions are addressed.

Breast Reduction

I am so incredibility happy with my reduction. My whole experience was the BEST. I would make this decision over and over again.


I love the office and the atmosphere they provide. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Dr. Ciaravino is extremely skilled and I fully trusted him for both my implant experience as well as my explant. My results from both surgeries exceeded my expectations. However, I was disappointed with the lack of professionalism after my surgery. My ride home was not contacted and I did not get any feedback after my surgery (pictures of implants, scar tissue removal, etc).

Breast Augmentation

Information was explained clear and concise. I felt prepared in every aspect on what to expect and how to handle myself during the recovery process. The recovery went as explained and I had minimal discomfort. I am loving my results, the whole process was wonderful!

Breast Lift

Will have to have a revision. Breasts not even

Mommy Makeover

I am very happy with the outcome of the surgery and my recovery thus far. Everyone in the practice is very friendly, as is Doctor Ciaravino. My only complaint is that I do not think enough information was provided regarding recovery and I think there should have been more contact made post-surgery. In the follow ups I have had, I have never been seen by Dr. Ciaravino himself, which has surprised me. There was also inaccurate information on the website. Specifically, regarding the anesthesia given during surgery. It mentions pain pumps are given, but I was told that was not accurate. I provide this input to be helpful. Overall, my experience was a very good one.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Ciaravino really listened to what I wanted out of my breast augmentation. And he delievered great results. Almost a year later and I am very satisfied. The surgery and recovery went smoothly.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Ciaravino and all of his staff were so friendly and helpful. The experience was the best medical experience I have ever had. I felt very important from the first moment I contacted their office and with each experience afterward. They are amazing!

Breast Augmentation

The incisions on breasts were done in different places ( one is below the natural fold-left, another one was done in/on the fold- right ), they look different in shape. The sizes are different too due to anatomy, however, I wasn't given an option to insert different sized implants to even them out

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Ciaravino and his staff are very attentive and pleasant. They make you feel as though you are the only patient that they are caring for.

Breast Lift

The Doctor is brilliant at what he does, he is the best of the best! My health has improved and my figure is better.

Breast Augmentation

My breasts were different sizes, A and B cups My chest wall was also two different sizes and sloped on one side. My goal was to at least obtain the same size breasts, if not symmetrical. They were able to achieve both!
