Dear Dr. Cabbabe, I cannot thank you enough for how much you have changed my life. After two babies and a stomach that had been stretched and abdominals torn, I never thought I would be the same again. I came to you for a consultation after having visited other plastic surgeons. The other surgeons were impersonal, rushed through my questions, and left me feeling confused about what I would need to have done and, therefore, disappointed.

As soon as I met you, I was immediately comfortable, confident in you, and at ease with your caring and professional manner. You had an amazing amount of patience with my list of questions and took your time in explaining the procedure in terms that I could understand. You were knowledgeable, honest, personal, and in tune with me and my individual concerns. Your instructions, advice, and experience with the sequence of events from pre-surgery through recovery were a huge relief to me so that I fully understood what was to come.

Your office staff was friendly, welcoming, upbeat, and respectful from the first phone call to scheduling surgery to the instructions that follow. They made me feel just as comfortable as you did and were discreet and confidential with me, in and out of the office, which I greatly appreciated.

My results are beyond perfect – I just stare at my flattened and fixed tummy and cannot believe it is me again! You definitely went above and beyond for me to make sure I was happy with my results. You never let me down and continued to educate and reassure me from the beginning of surgery and throughout the entire recovery process. I never thought I would have this body again and it is even better than I could have hoped for! Your precision and expertise in surgery are beyond amazing and obvious by my impeccable results. You have a natural ability and talent to be such a gifted surgeon.

Thanks for taking care of me and listening to my concerns and needs. You are a physician who cares and it shows in who you are and how you practice. Thank You from the bottom of my heart, J.H.

Patient Testimonials:

“Dr. Laverson is not just a surgeon; he is an artist whose medium happens to be the human body. In the numerous before-and-after pictures on his website, its obvious that he is incredibly skilled at transforming potentially embarrassing imperfections into things of beauty. In fact, if you do your homework before having any cosmetic work done (as you should), you’ll see that Dr. Laverson’s work is supreme. What you may not gather from Dr. Laverson’s before-and-after albums is the fact that he is an extremely kind, wonderful, and gentle person who will make you feel cared for and at ease throughout the entire process, from the initial consultation and long after surgery is done. As a neuroscientist, I have worked with a lot of clinicians and, unfortunately, knowledge and skill are often mutually exclusive with personality and bedside manner. You get the whole package with Dr Laverson. He is his own biggest critic, striving for perfection in everything he does, and going above and beyond to make sure the results are as wonderful as possible. I was anxious about finding the best surgeon I could and met with several other surgeons before meeting Dr. Laverson. I am currently 4-weeks post-op from my full tummy tuck and breast lift and I have absolutely no regrets. No other surgeon could possibly have done a better job and no other surgeon could possibly have a better bedside manner and caring personality. If you are considering surgery, go see Dr. Laverson. I honestly can’t say enough good things about him!”

Patient Praise:

“I’ve been to many plastic surgeons for consultations and have never met one who is so normal, full of integrity, professionalism and character. Dr. Wethe spent over an hour with me on my consultation (we’re looking at three procedures). All the other docs I went to are in BH and their fancy offices and rates reflect that. Dr. Wethe came highly referred to me from a nurse at Dr. Obagi skin clinic in BH. He is the doctor of my choice. I highly recommend him. BTW, his office is super clean and nice AND I really liked that they don’t try to gloss you over and make you feel insignificant by showing how great they are with TV promo ads and ‘Look which magazines I’ve been in,’ like the PR agents do for the BH docs.” -Jill T

Patient Praise:

“After a lifetime of disliking my lower body, I finally decided to have liposuction. Dr. Yousefi said I was an excellent candidate and that my results would be great- and he was right! I am now 3 months post-op and I am loving how proportioned I look. My clothes fit like they should, and I could not be happier with my results. Many thanks to you Dr. Yousefi, and your fantastic team for a new and improved me!”
-Leanna, 47: Liposuction

“Breast reduction at 67- ok yes! I attended Dr. Yousefi’s seminar on Breast Surgeries just to see what it was all about and to meet him. I was a 38-40 DDD, love yard work, very active, and if you are this size, you know the bother and discomfort large breasts are. Clothes are a problem and my big problem was backaches. I dreamt of this procedure for a long time, but felt it was an impossible dream. Dr. Yousefi’s presentation was so thorough. I was very impressed with him and made my consultation appointment. He answered all and more of my questions so graciously and didn’t hurry me. I left there on “cloud nine” ready for surgery in the next hour, if possible. Surgery and recovery were a snap. I still can’t believe the little pain I had. I sailed through it. The scars are all about faded at 10 months. Words can not describe how great I feel, it’s unbelievable. I regret not doing it 30 years ago. Thank you, Dr. Yousefi, for a successful surgery and taking me as a patient. I was blessed with such an excellent surgeon for my doctor.”
Caroline, 68: Breast Reduction

“Dr. Yousefi has OPENED my eyes to the world of Plastic Surgery…in more ways than one!!! 9 days ago I underwent an upper and lower eyelift and already the bruising has gone and people are noticing a difference. I am so pleased to have found Dr. Yousefi and would recommend him to anyone. He has a lovely demeanor and instantly puts you at ease. The procedure was painless, my scars are undetectable, and the results are amazing already. Anyone considering an eyelift – look no further, Dr. Yousefi is excellent.”

Before & After  and  Patient Praise:

Ultherapy procedure performed by Dr. Walker

“I had Ultherapy several months ago with Dr. Walker and am most pleased with the results. Dr. Walker thoroughly prepped me in advance of the procedure as well as walking me through each step during the procedure itself. She was very conscious of pain management having experienced the technique herself. She was very attentive to my comfort with the pace of the procedure. Dr. Walker and her staff were extremely professional, kind and supportive. I would consider additional Ultherapy to address other concerns.”
