  • “Hi all, I wanted to send a thank you for all you guys did for me. I’m so thrilled. Everyone was so kind and knowledgeable and just plain fun. That really helped me get over being nervous and shy about the whole thing. Your experience really shines. I attached a picture of my new chest with a shirt I’m wearing that made me think of y’all!”

    “I have had 3 procedures so far with Dr. Javaheri, they are: tummy tuck with lower body lift, arms & breast reduction , and legs & gluteus maximus lift. My upcoming surgery is a face lift procedure. All these procedures are following weight loss surgery procedure called Gastric Bypass whereby I lost nearly 300 lbs. Dr. Javaheri performed all of my plastic & reconstructive surgeries to a great success. I am very pleased by the results. He even came to the office on a Sunday to deal with a small complication I had following one of my surgeries. It is so unusual to find a surgeon who cares so much about his patients; and an office staff that are so capable.”*
