“ From the time I scheduled my first appointment, to surgery to the post op visits, my overall experience with Dr. Rivela and his staff were EXCELLENT. I studied, researched and read reviews about numerous plastic surgeons in Houston, prior to scheduling an appointment for breast augmentation and found that Dr. Rivela was the best choice personally for me. His credentials alone are outstanding and his reviews were all excellent. Dr. Rivela is, in my opinion, the BEST plastic surgeon in Houston!!

Dr. Rivela and his entire team were outstanding. I had an outpatient surgery at the surgery center and was awake for the entire procedure. They were very compassionate, patient, understanding, knowledgeable, and professional.

I had a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, and lipo. Dr. Rivela and his staff are AMAZING. I love how they take their time with you instead of rushing you out the door. Each visit you really feel welcomed and cared for. Carly is the best nurse! She is soooo caring and really helps you feels relaxed. She spends as much time with you that you need in order to have your concerns or fears addressed. You will walk out of that office with a smile. Love my results!
