"I must start by saying that I very rarely write reviews. But I recently recalled my experience with Dr. Laverson, and felt compelled to leave a long-overdue review that he truly earned. My situation was also quite different from most of his typical work, so I hope this also attests to his wide-ranging surgical skill. A couple of years ago I was involved in a bad motorcycle accident and wound up at Palomar Hospital. According to my family, doctors, and nurses, my face was pretty much smashed to bits and looked extremely gruesome. Some parts of my face were even missing. Anyway, Dr. Laverson was the on-call plastic surgeon that night. Once the E.R. doctors had gotten me stable, he had the impossible task of trying to fix my Freddy Krueger face by looking at an old picture of me on my fiance’s cell phone. Or at least it should’ve been impossible based on how bad my condition was...Fast forward a day or two, after my swelling from the surgery had gone down in order to see the results, my family and some coworkers came in to see. NONE of them could tell a difference from before the accident, including the coworkers who hadn’t seen my smashed face. Somehow, some way, Dr. Laverson was able to use plates, grafts, and whatever other tools and tricks in his brilliant surgical mind to make me look IDENTICAL to how I looked before splattering multiple pieces of my face on the side of a road. Shortly after my family, friends, and coworkers visited, Dr. Laverson himself visited as well to observe the post-swelling results, see how I was feeling, and to follow up on all the medical stuff he knew to look out for. He even asked my family and I if there was anything out of place, or changes we’d like to make, since he was happy to do another surgery to get everything exactly right. Because everything was already perfect I didn’t do another surgery, but his offer, his following up with me, and his sincere concern for my well being was absolutely amazing.There is only one last detail I want to mention, but it speaks volumes for Dr. Laverson’s outstanding character and genuine desire to help people feel beautiful and be happy with their looks. Since this was in the emergency room at the hospital, not only was it different than his usual surgeries by its type and difficulty, but the emergency was also paid for by my medical insurance. In the medical profession, this often means a significant pay-cut for the doctor from what they would normally charge. I don’t know if my surgery wound up being one of those times for Dr. Laverson, but I do know that he did a spectacular job given my horrendous condition, all while cancelling his Friday evening plans, and likely earning less than usual as well. I hope this review helps prove to potential customers that Dr. Laverson is a caring and outstandingly skilled surgeon, and to put anyone’s mind at ease that may be nervous or unsure about plastic surgery. And lastly, Dr. Laverson, I want to personally thank you for everything outlined above. I know there is no way I can ever really reciprocate what you did for me, but I hope this review can at least help show people and spread the word that you are an absolutely amazing person and professional."- D.S. / Google / Jun 11, 2019
"Dr. Laverson is incredibly thorough and passionate about his work. He answered all of my questions prior to my breast augmentation and tummy tuck. Following my procedure, Dr. Laverson went above and beyond during my follow up appointment to ensure I get the best results. Office staff is very welcoming, and they even called to check up on me after my procedure. I feel like a new woman, and I’m more confident than I have ever been. I recommend Feel Beautiful to anyone considering having an aesthetic procedure."- J.C. / Google / Mar 17, 2019

The best candidate for ThermiVa is a woman with light to moderate vaginal laxity. It's also a perfect procedure for those who are unsure about having more kids and who wish to avoid the lengthy recovery period that comes with invasive surgery. As an ideal candidate for ThermiVa, you should meet the following criteria:
- At least three months post-partum from your most recent childbirth
- Completed childbearing
- Experience a marked decreased in sexual pleasure
- Possess loose outer or inner vaginal tissue
Completed by one of our team's experienced nurses as an outpatient procedure, your ThermiVa treatment will take place over three 60 – 90-minute sessions. The treatment sessions will likely be spaced about a month apart. For the actual procedure, the ThermiVa wand is placed just above the outside region of the vagina and then gently inserted into the inner vagina. The handpiece has an integrated thermometer to monitor the temperature and ensure the safety of your vaginal tissue. After your treatment, patients are advised to avoid intercourse for no less than a day. Otherwise, you will be able to continue your regular activities.
What to Expect
Women that choose ThermiVa should expect to notice their results about three weeks after their final session. Although follow-up sessions may be required, the results from your treatment can last for up to two years. If you become pregnant and give birth vaginally, your results could become compromised so Dr. Laverson advises his patients to be finished having children prior to their ThermiVa sessions.
Is a ThermiVa treatment painful?
No, a ThermiVa session doesn’t hurt. Many women report feeling a mild, relaxing warming sensation.
Is ThermiVa safe?
Yes, ThermiVa is safe. The temperature of the wand is regulated by internal sensors and thermometers and your team member will monitor your treatment the whole time. Side-effects of the treatment are rare and if experienced, are mild and can include redness, swelling, or discomfort at the treatment site which usually go away after a few days.
How long does a ThermiVa treatment take?
A typical ThermiVa session takes about 60 — 90 minutes.
When can I expect to see results from ThermiVa treatment?
Most women can expect to see results about three weeks after their final session.
How long do the results of ThermiVa last?
Some follow-up sessions may be required to achieve the best results, but many women will see their results last up to two years.
Can I still have children after a ThermiVa treatment?
Yes, you can. However, having children can affect your results and may require you to have ThermiVa treatments again to regain your results. That's why Dr. Laverson recommends waiting until you are done having children before your ThermiVa treatments.
