I had a breast reduction procedure performed in November 2017. Dr. Rivela and his staff are kind, caring, and professional. They helped me understand my insurance and payment options. They have always been able to accommodate appointments, even if they are last minute. The level of health care provided is top notch. Wonderful outcome from the procedure and I got the results I hoped for. They listened to my requests and concerns, no matter how small it may have seemed.

Where to start? I had a breast reduction, tummy tuck, lipo, and upper and lower eyelids done July 2017. Dr. Rivela is meticulous at his craft and his office staff is great. The pre and aftercare were first class. I like that he gave first rate quality vitamins and eye serum. A year later, I got bit by a brown recluse spider and used him to remove the dead tissue. I knew he would do a neat and tidy job of it which he did unlike a general surgeon would do! He is my go-to guy for everything!

I had a procedure that I was extremely nervous and self conscious about. From the initial consult, pre surgery, surgery, and follow up, Dr. Rivela and his staff treated me with the utmost professionalism, dignity and respect one could ask for. I felt extremely at ease and informed before, during, and after the process. I highly recommend Dr. Rivela and his staff to anyone looking for their plastic surgery procedures!

I feel I was honestly prepared for what the surgery entailed and what to expect during my recovery. I was treated with respect and the staff was attentive to my needs. I am pleased with the results, thus far.

“ 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.
