Whether you are thinking about breast enhancement, body contouring or facial rejuvenation, a good relationship between you and your plastic surgeon is critical for a positive experience. That relationship begins with the patient consultation – one of the most essential steps in the entire surgery process. This meeting is your chance to learn more about Dr. Ciaravino, our practice and our unique approach involving breast augmentation and other plastic surgery procedures.
More importantly, this is our chance to learn everything we need to know about you – your goals, concerns and even your likes and dislikes, so that we can design a customized plan with your needs and desired results in mind. We strive to make sure every one of our patients feels comfortable and cared for, while we do our due diligence to ensure every surgical procedure is both safe and successful. These consultations are complimentary, allowing you to meet us and learn and explore your treatment options without any feelings of obligation.
Throughout your experience with us, Dr. Ciaravino encourages you to discuss your concerns and desires freely with him and the rest of our team. We want you to relax and feel completely at ease throughout the surgical process, and we want you to leave your first consultation and each appointment afterward feeling very well-informed. Our detailed patient education program will ensure your first appointment is thorough and your questions are addressed.
In addition to meeting with Dr. Ciaravino, you will also visit with his staff as you prepare for your procedure. Our team is amiable and knowledgeable. Most have been patients themselves and are valuable resources for guidance and support. Our female patients often appreciate having the opportunity to talk to other women who have had similar procedures performed, gaining insight on a level usually not obtained by talking to the surgeon alone.
During this appointment, we will help you define your aesthetic goals. There are a variety of ways in which we can accomplish this. First, you are invited to look at an array of patient photographs for your review. You are also encouraged to bring in photos from magazines to give us an idea of what you like and don’t like as we plan for your surgery. Patients seeking breast augmentation will also have implants available so that you can see firsthand the size and feel of the devices. We use a precise sizing system based on your measurements to make the best determination of implant size.
Dr. Ciaravino will also perform a physical exam to evaluate your health and suitability for surgery, as well as your size, shape, symmetry and the elasticity of your skin. He will consider your height, frame and overall proportions to ensure the results you want will be proportionate and balanced to the rest of your body. His experience and artistic eye will ensure the results you achieve are naturally intertwined with the rest of your appearance. You will look like you, only better.
Ciaravino Total Beauty also provides Vector 3D Imaging for our breast enhancement patients, a technology that allows them to “see” their results before their surgery. This state-of-the-art system takes a composite image of patients “before”, and produces a 3-dimensional rendering of them with the exact breast size and shape they want. The ability to visualize the potential results can go a long way in easing the minds of our patients, as you can have the information you need to make the best possible choice in terms of implant type, shape, and size. This addition is particularly helpful for women unsure of the size of the breasts they would like to achieve through surgery. Size choice can be a significant obstacle for women considering breast surgery, and the ability to visualize your results with Vectra gives our patients more confidence in the choice they ultimately make. Rather than imagining what your new breasts will look like by merely trying on bigger bras, or looking at before and after photos of other patients who may not have the same starting size, breast tissue amount or body proportions, our patients will be able to see their chosen breast size on their frame, giving you the assurance of both looking and feeling great after your surgery.
Ciaravino Total Beauty is unique in that our primary focus is on breast enhancement procedures. Not all plastic surgeons share this dedication and focus, which uniquely qualifies our office to deliver on our promise as we put more time and energy into what we do every day. Dr. Ciaravino performs hundreds of breast enhancement procedures every year, giving him the extensive experience and expertise to offer the highest level of care and the best possible outcomes for our patients.
The rest of our staff also bring a wealth of experience to the operating table, since we have worked as a team for many years and have interacted with so many different patients on their breast procedures. When a woman comes into our office asking about breast enhancement, we see her as a unique individual, not a number. We take into consideration every aspect of her lifestyle when making our recommendation to ensure the process and the results are the best they can be.
Once you and Dr. Ciaravino have decided on the ideal surgical plan, it’s time to schedule your surgery date. We will schedule a subsequent meeting for a pre-op visit one to two weeks before your procedure, to review your plan and make sure you are comfortable and well-prepared. If you are interested in cosmetic procedures in the Houston or Sugar Land, Texas area, please contact Ciaravino Total Beauty at 713-627-1200 to schedule your complimentary first consultation.
The physician took the time to understand what I wanted out of the surgery and he is very knowledgeable and professional. The Staff is kind and supportive and the office is clean and comfortable. My overall experience was wonderful and I will highly recommend ya’ll to everyone! The doctor took the time to listen to what I wanted from the procedure and worked with me to find the perfect size. The doctor explained why the size would be perfect based on my chest cavity and it was perfectly correct!
The staff and Dr. Ciaravino are very friendly and knowledgeable. They made me feel very comfortable before and after my procedure. Everyone in the office is very friendly and professional. I did not have to wait very long and answered all of my questions. Dr. Ciaravino’s expertise and advise was greatly appreciated and very happy with the results!
Dr Michael Ciaravino is a Magnificent Surgeon!! Honest, knowledgeable, caring with excellent bedside manners. I have been his patient for several years and I will never go to another doctor. I am so happy with my recent Breast Augmentation! My recovery has been easy, and I feel great ! Thanks to Dr. Ciaravino and his Amazing Team who made my experience be a terrific one ! I can’t say enough good things about the amazing Ciaravino Girls ! Thank you beautiful ladies for being there for me.
I was extremely nervous about scheduling Breast Augmentation/Liposuction surgery without visiting the facility due to me living abroad. Upon my arrival to Texas, I was able to visit the office for a consult/pre-op. The moment I walked in I was greeted by the receptionist and amazed by the chic yet calming decor. This was very much needed since I walked in with butterflies in my stomach. The nurse/patient coordinator was very attentive and assured me of the smooth process. She was definitely right. Dr.Caravino is amazing he was able to give me a very natural yet sexy look. I’m so very thankful and planning another visit soon. Thanks again to Dr. Caravino for giving me my pre-mom body back and thank you to his staff for being just as amazing.
Very professional staff. The doctor made every visit comforting and he’s clearly great at what he does. Love the end results, 2 days after the procedure I was feeling great! No pain, no bruising, everything was awesome!
EVERYTHING! The look, the ease of transitioning back to “normal”, the care….EVERYTHING! The doctor and staff are AMAZING! He and his staff were very attentive to my questions and needs and always made me feel at ease. I have already referred three people to him!
Dr Ciaravino and his staff exceeded my expectations. I have several of my friends whose gone to him for augmentations and recommended him. I couldn’t be more pleased!! From the scheduling over the phone for the consultation to the post-op appointment, choosing this practice is by far the best decision I made for myself. I can’t express how highly I will recommend to anyone looking for a change, I actually already have passed on his information to a couple ladies. The results are more than I imagined and I only had my surgery Nov 15, 2017 (2 weeks ago). I never had to take any of my pain medicine which as my first surgery ever I didn’t expect it to be so perfect! Thank you again to you Dr Ciaravino and his lovely beautiful staff for making me feel comfortable before and after. Look forward to seeing you guys in 3 months.
Information was explained clear and concise. I felt prepared in every aspect on what to expect and how to handle myself during the recovery process. The recovery went as explained and I had minimal discomfort. I am loving my results, the whole process was wonderful!
The accessibility of the staff after my procedure to answer questions I had was phenomenal. The results are amazing, I couldn’t be happier! The staff and Dr. C are all very knowledgable and very helpful. Dr. C did a fantastic job with my procedure and I am excited to see the final results once I am completely healed.
The staff was very friendly and helpful through the entire process. My results are exactly what I wanted and asked for as far as size and shape with a more natural look.
Doctor Ciaravino gave me exactly what I wanted. I love the way my breasts look. His assistants were very knowledgeable, helpful and extremely nice! I love the way my breasts look. I wanted natural and that’s what Doctor Ciaravino gave me.
Dr C’s office and staff are first class. Always kind, helpful and considerate. Each time I go in, it feels like going to see friends! I had abdominoplasty and breast augmentation. I love my body! Could not ask for better results!
From the first consultation to my last post-op app I have been so happy with everything. Dr Ciaravino and his staff have always made me feel super comfortable. I will be going back for any cosmetic procedures I need in the future!
Friendly staff and environment. Dr. Ciaravino was very thorough about explaining the risks and possible complications of the surgery and how to prevent them. Other than what I had researched about him prior to my consultation, I knew he’d be the perfect doctor to perform my surgery because of his bedside manner skills! Down to earth and doesn’t make you feel like a number. He addresses your concerns and took the time to explain my questions.
Everyone from the CSM to the nurse who has been on staff for 8 years. Everyone made my husband and I feel very welcomed and comfortable. Didn’t feel pressured and the staff was very informative!
Nadia helped explain every single thing I would need to know in such detail, I felt that I knew exactly what I was getting into. She is so sweet and kind I was nervous and she helped calm my nerves and make me feel right at home. By the time the surgeon entered the room, I had most of my questions answered so I felt fully ready and excited. Nadia is the BEST.
Dr. C, you and your staff are great!! You all made the whole process practically painless. I am very impressed with the results…You are so professional and at the same time so compassionate and caring, another happy patient!!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about every single person I encountered at this office. You are all thorough, kind, conscientious, and beautiful inside and out!
I have always been a bit apprehensive about having breast augmentation. Although I wanted one, I had a fear that they would turn out too big and look unnatural. Dr. Ciaravino listened to my concerns and truly did a beautiful job. He is truly an artist with his ability and truly did a beautiful job.
Just wanted to let y’all know that I think that Dr. Ciaravino is by far the most talented doc around. I had my surgery on Monday and haven’t had a pain killer since Tuesday morning. Not even a Tylenol. There was no bruising or swelling at all. I am just amazed at how simple and painless the whole thing was. I attribute this to Dr. Ciaravino’s talent and gentleness.
