I came here with my daughter who was so happy with her experience. Dr Laverson was so kind and thorough with her and that meant so much to me. I scheduled an appointment to get breast augmentation and I had the same amazing experience. I had so many questions and Dr. Laverson patiently listened and did an excellent job providing me with a perfect pair of knockers!!!

I have been on a weight loss journey since 2018 and after dropping 30 pounds, I was finally happy with my body. However, I have always had a small chest and knew that was the one thing I would love to enhance on my body. Since I was on the fence, I searched through RealSelf.com for qualified surgeons, and found Dr. Laverson. After reading his excellent patient testimonials and noticing that he provided a more "natural" look, I was convinced to book a consultation with him. Cherise and Courtney were very helpful with booking the consultation and super accommodating with my schedule. During the consultation, Dr. Laverson was super informative and listened to all my concerns. I could tell by his care and attention, that he was the right surgeon for me. Overall, I am extremely happy with my results! It is exactly what I wanted and more. If I could give my experience with Dr. Laverson and his team more than 5 stars, I would. Thank you again!

Dr Laverson whom I set out to find from my home town of Albuquerque NM, in order to perform a delicate and complex surgery has gone above and beyond what I've have ever thought I could have had. Dr Laverson has the kindest bedside manner, beyond expert skills in his field, and just has the ability to ease all your fears, concerns and puts you first in your client centered care. I absolutely love him and his team, everyone was great, from start to finish I will only come to Dr Laverson for any type of his specialized surgeries. His group of skilled nurses, OR team members, and receptionist make every moment perfect.

Dr Steven Laverson is amazing, he is a great surgeon and a perfectionist in his work. I have no visible scars from a major breast replacement. He made sure my surgery gave me the results expected. He watched my recovery closely. I trust him totally and am so glad I chose him to replace my breasts over all the other doctors that were recommended. This doctor has high expectations and excellent follow through. A master in his surgery. I love his staff and Thank them for being there for me. I love my breasts again, they look great.

I had a breast augmentation procedure with Dr Laverson and I am very pleased with the results.

From the very first visit to Dr Laverson's, I felt completely at ease. (We even laughed a few times). The staff are amazing, friendly, and 100% professional. We discussed all my options, I didn't feel pressured or rushed, and I was able to schedule my procedure on a day that worked for me. Over the past 3 months since my surgery, all my post op visits have been great! Dr Laverson makes sure you have everything you need for a successful recovery. He's totally committed to giving you the best experience & result possible. After 30 years of horrible bra shopping experiences, not knowing what to wear at the beach, saggy top bikinis, and large hanging pendulous breasts... I now have the perfect boobs I have always wanted! I literally cried like a baby the first time I put on a triangle bikini top! Tears of pure joy! I could not be happier with my new "girls" - and I 110% recommend Feel Beautiful, Dr Laverson, & all their staff. Best decision I've ever made - wish I'd done it 20 years ago

i could not be happier with my experience and results from dr. laverson. he was extremely detail oriented and spent a lot of time explaining the procedure and details and making sure the results were exactly what i wanted. i would say he is a perfectionist which is what is what is wanted in a plastic surgeon. my results look tremendously better than my first procedure with a different plastic surgeon. he also has seen me multiple times after to make sure everything is healing and i am happy with my results. the entire staff has also been amazing; very knowledgeable, friendly, and made me feel very comfortable.

I had a labiaplasty done and I was very pleased with how everything went. The day of surgery was so much less nerve racking than I thought it would be because the staff made me so comfortable and made everything that as going to happen so clear. They gave me a bag full of things to help with the recovery and it helped so much. I am so happy with the results and am so much more confident. I couldn't have asked for a better experience or better people to do this for me. They're amazing!

I have always been insecure about my labia size, so when I heard of Labiaplasty I knew it was something I wanted to move forward with. I searched for doctors on real self and found that Dr.Laverson was the top provider in San Diego for labiaplasty. Turns out he also did my sisters breast augmentation so I knew he was trustworthy. I set up my consultation as soon as possible, the office was quick about getting me in and booking me as soon as possible. Dr.Laverson assured me that he was invested in me feeling like I had the perfect labia results. The surgery itself was a breeze, I was so relaxed that fell sleep, woke up and it was done! Of course post op I did experience minor discomfort but the pain was only temporary. I am over the moon happy with my results, and would recommend Dr.Laverson to whomever is considering this surgery. If you have any insecurities about your labia size like I did, this is the solution. Thank you Dr.Laverson!

I cannot recommend Dr. Laverson and his staff enough! The entire process was seamless. When you step through the Feel Beautiful office you are immediately welcomed by Cherise! The office is clean and sparkling. Coutney is amazing. I never felt worried or scared on the days leading up to surgery. Dr. Laverson was professional throughout the entire process. I never felt pressured to go up in size or get something that wouldn't work with my body. The day of surgery was smooth. Maya was my nurse and she was so sweet and patient with me! If you are thinking about a breast augmentation-look no further than the Feel Beautiful office. You won't be disappointed.

I am very satisfied with my experinece here at Feel Beautiful. From my initial phone call with the receptionist I was always able to get on the phone with someone quickly with no wait time or automated answering machines. Scheduling my appointments was very easy. I would have liked a post-op apt earlier than what was recommended but I always had the choice to come in if really needed. I would definitely recommend this office to a freind for any cosmetic procedures.
