"Feel Beautiful is an amazing clinic consisting of kind-hearted people from the moment you enter & through & after the end of all your procedures. I had a great experience with Dr. Laverson who did my breast augmentation & I could not be happier with my results. He took the time to make sure I was sure about exactly what I wanted & provided me with great knowledge. Cherise at the front desk is so sweet & Kourtney is wonderful, too. Thank you for my wholesome experience! (:"- D.S. / Google / Apr 08, 2022

"Dr laverson is an amazing doctor. He’s professional, respectful & caring of his patients. He’s professional but not where you are scared to ask questions.

"6 weeks post op - happy with my results so far - From my initial consult with Dr Laverson I knew I was going to choose him as my surgeon. I had consulted with multiple plastic surgeons before my consult at Feel Beautiful and Dr Laverson put me the most at ease and I was most comfortable with the treatment plan he suggested. I thought I had an idea of what he would suggest because of my other consults (under the muscle implants and an anchor or lollipop lift and a tummy tuck, or extended tummy tuck as one dr suggested, muscle repair and lipo) but Dr Laverson was the first dr to recommend less invasive procedures. He recommended over the muscle implants and a donut lift, a tummy tuck and muscle repair but did not recommend lipo. This sealed the deal for me because it was obvious he didnt just care about selling more procedures but cared more about his patients and their recovery and results. After I scheduled my surgery everyone at Feel Beautiful was amazing and helpful whenever I called with any questions. At my pre op Dr Laverson went over all the aspects of my surgery( donut lift and 415cc mod+ implants over the muscle and a tummy tuck and muscle repair) and I was able to ask any questions I had. At my pre op I picked implants but a few days later I called because I had changed my mind about size and this was not a big deal at all. The morning of my surgery everything went smoothly and all the other nurses and staff who I met for the first time that morning were all great. My recovery has been smooth so far and any issues I have had Dr Laverson has responded to quickly and had me come in if he felt it was necessary just to be safe. I have spoken to several other of his patients who have all said that he is quick to address any issues that come up and although I was already happy with my choice this gave me extra reassurance about my choice.I am currently 6 weeks post op and while I am happy with my results so far I will wait to post photos until I am further along in my recovery and not so swollen anymore. I would 100% suggest Dr Laveron without any reservations to anyone considering cosmetic surgery."- T. / RealSelf / Feb 23, 2022
"Over a year since surgery - tummy is gorgeous - After consultations with several other doctors I met Dr. Laverson and I knew immediately that I would trust him with my tummy tuck. He listened, did not try to upsell to more extensive procedures (as both previous surgeons had done), was very thorough and meticulous, set realistic expectations, supported me during every step of the process, had a really fantastic staff (Kourtney is amazing) and he's absolutely masterful at his art. It's been over a year since my surgery and I couldn't be happier with the finished product. My tummy is gorgeous!"- R. / RealSelf / Jan 27, 2022

Am I a Candidate for Radiesse?
Men and women who are in good overall health and have mild to moderate facial lines and wrinkles could be great candidates to receive RADIESSE treatments. This formula can treat marionette lines, smile lines, chin wrinkles, pre-jowl folds, and fine lines that form in the corners of the lips. This formula is also safe to address volume in the hands that is often lost with age to make them softer and appear more youthful. You shouldn't receive this treatment if you have an allergy to lidocaine or other ingredients contained in RADIESSE. Be sure to talk to Dr. Laverson if you have any allergies (whether mild or severe), as well as any medical conditions or disorders. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, might become pregnant, or are trying to conceive in the next several years, you shouldn't receive this treatment.
How Does Radiesse Work?
RADIESSE injections are performed in a treatment room at San Diego Cosmetic Clinic in around 30 – 60 minutes, typically once you have completed your consultation. First, you will be seated in a relaxed position as the injection sites are cleaned and marked. Many patients feel only mild discomfort throughout the procedure at the first prick, but a numbing agent will be applied to the treatment sites as needed. The amount of product, which will be selected during your consultation, will be placed in a fine needle. The pre-marked injection sites will allow your injector to carefully administer the product into the desired locations. After your treatment is complete, a compress can be held to the treated areas to alleviate bruising and swelling.
What Results Can I Expect from Radiesse?
Following your treatment, you may have some bruising, redness, and swelling. This is normal and should last for around a week. These side effects may typically be concealed with cosmetics. If the bruising, swelling, or redness lasts longer than ten days or if you are concerned, please contact San Diego Cosmetic Clinic. Many patients have visible results immediately with final results appearing in a month or so. Your face will look softer, younger, and have a natural glow. RADIESSE typically lasts longer compared to other dermal fillers — around 1 – 2 years. You can talk to Dr. Steve Laverson at your appointment about how soon to get your next injection to touch up your results.
