I had wanted to get a breast lift for quite some time, but was very nervous about finding the right doctor. From the minute I walked into the office and met the staff, I could tell I had made the right choice. Everyone was very welcoming, there was absolutely no judgement, or preassure to move faster than I wanted. Dr. Laverson answered all of my questions, and there were a lot, with a smile and a desire to truly help. Surgery day went so well, and he even called me personally the next day to check up on me. Follow up has been so easy, and any time I have even the smallest question they were extremely easy to get ahold of. Dr. Laverson and his staff are so friendly, knowledgeable, and detail oriented, that now when I think of any future procedures I may want or need I am excited at the thought to work with them again. I can't thank them enough for the results I have gotten, and the confidence I have in myself again!

My experience with Dr. Laverson was fantastic. He made me feel so comfortable even though I was nervous. He answered all my questions and never pressured me to do anything I wasnt comfortable with. He wrote everything down that I said in pre op appointments so that he wouldnt forget what my wants and deisres were. I really felt at ease when I saw that. He cares about all his patients. His surgery center is extrememly clean and beautiful. Being a surgical tech i was looking at all of that! I was truly impressed.

Dr Laverson was my second consult and I felt so comfortable and sure about him and his team, that I booked a date and paid in full. Dr Laverson was very open about the procedures and answered all questions, along with giving us extra education on the procedures and the body. There was never a feeling of being rushed and I saw Dr Laverson for every post op appointment. You can definitely tell that everyone (from front desk to surgeon) really cares about you.

I had come in for a labiaplasty revision after not being satisfied with the one done by my obgyn. Dr. Laverson was a good listener when it came to fixing everything that was bothering me and the outcome was great. The most uncomfortable part was the healing itself, but it was manageable and I am very very happy with the outcome. I would definitely recommend this procedure if anyone has any concerns about down there.

I immediately felt welcomed, comfortable and fell instantly in love with the staff, and Dr. Laverson. All my concerns and discomforts were instantly washed away the second I walked through the front door. I enjoyed every second of my time with them. Right when I met the Dr. I knew I had absolutely no need to look into other facilities or doctors. I knew that this was definitely the group of people I wanted to be doing my surgery. And of course, I was absolutely IN LOVE WITH THE RESULTS! I've never felt more confident and comofrtable with my body and myself. Would highly recommend for anyones plastic surgery desires!

Dr. Laverson is the best plastic surgeon around. His staff is so amazing. Dr. Laverson takes his time and explains everything so throughly. Most Doctors are in it for the money and this place is anything but that. Seriously the best experience I have ever had with any medical facility.

I met with Dr. Laverson regarding my nose. Both times I've been in staff show the utmost respect and are so warm. Dr. Laverson is so honest, kind and knowledgable. He is not like others who just want to make money off you. He helped me see the truth in what should and shouldn't be altered while guiding me to ebmrace my beauty. I couldnt be more grateful for meeting him.

Before I found Steve I went to a few other doctors and no one compares to him. I instantly felt comfortable around him and the staff and havent met a doctor that cared as much as he did. He's truly an amazing doctor. I am extreamly happy with the results of my rhinoplasty and so glad I went to him.

Dr.Laverson has done a miracle with my labia. His work is phenomenal! he has given me my confidence back. Before i had my labiaplasty i was very insecure. my labia was very long and would hang, it was very dark and very unattractive. I didn't even feel comfortable with anyone seeing me in my underwear. once i found dr.Laverson and his amazing staff kourtney and cherise. i felt confident this was the place that would make my labiaplasty dream come true. They were all very attentive,personable and knowledgeable. i was set up with an appointment quickly and the pricing was very affordable. once my process was finally executed the result left me speechless, my labia was small and had a new light pink skin that enhanced the beauty of my labia. ive never felt more confident in my life. i even bought some new bikinis to go with my new labia look. no more under wear bulge. i now have a fresh tight small beautiful labia. Thank you Dr.laverson and his amazing staff!

I came to Dr. Laverson wanting to increase my bust size from an A/AA to something more proportionate to my hips. I had never had plastic surgery before and I was definitely nervous and unsure about my choices. I changed my mind multiple times on what size I wanted, and Dr. Laverson met with me several times until I was confident with my decision. Honestly, Dr. Laverson will not steer you wrong. I don't think it's possible for him to produce a poor result. I am so happy with my now 32DD breasts at 5 weeks post-op. I have never felt more womanly or confident. Though I don't anticipate needing or wanting any other procedures, if I do, I will 100% come back to Dr. Laverson.

Needing care for aging breast implants and a recent injury I was blessed to find Dr Laverson and his caring staff. From the minute I walked into the office I knew I was in the right place for the surgery I needed. My initial desire was to have the implants simply removed and no additional surgery. I am grateful Dr Laverson and his staff took the time to educate and counsel me on my other options. The experience was amazing and so much easier than I ever expected. Any issues were dealt with quickly and kindly. Thank you! I am smiling as I write this.

Dr. Laverson is the kindest, most thorough, detail oriented, and knowledgeable person of his field I have had the pleasure of working with. I had my upper lip lift one year ago. His attention to detail and expertise is unmatched. He is also the most down to earth and caring person, and I would 150% come back to him for any future procedure. Thank you again for your spectacular work Dr. Laverson.

Dr. Laverson and his staff provided an excellent experience from consult to follow-up. I was never rushed. Doctor and staff spent all the time needed to address every question and concern. I felt heard and was treated as an individual. Doctor and staff shared their knowledge and made suggestions, but the decisions were mine. I felt safe and well cared for every step of the way. My outcome is beautiful, and I "feel beautiful". I highly recommend Dr. Laverson and his team.
