"I've been going to Dr. Laverson for 3 years now and there is a reason I keep going back: professionalism, excellent results and great customer service. As I approached 40, I looked in the mirror and decided it was time to try Botox for a deep crease between my eyebrows. I thought i looked tired and people said I looked "mad", which is far from my personality. I got the courage to go and went to see Dr. Laverson, who came highly recommended from a colleague. Boy, I am glad I did! I felt and looked like a younger version of myself following my initial treatment with Botox. The line/squint between my eyebrows froze and became smooth, the wrinkles on the forehead disappeared, and my eyebrows developed an attractive natural lift and shape. Unexpected bonus was the injection helped to decrease the number and severity of my migraine headaches! Needless to say, I now make it a point to visit Dr. Laverson 2x/year for a pick me up. I seem to get many compliments about my youthful appearance and have been told "there's something different about you, but I can't put my finger on it". Of course, only a few know my secret and I love the fact that the wrinkle reducer gives me a "it's still me, only better" look. Dr. Laverson does an excellent job consulting with you about your aesthetic goals, prior to any service. He offers realistic advice and does not try to "sell" you on services you do not need. He and his staff are very friendly, personable, professional and offer flexible scheduling. Feel Beautiful have two locations: Oceanside and Encinitas. Mind you, I live in Chula Vista but do not hesitate to drive the 43 miles, one way, to his office. If I ever decide to receive any other cosmetic services, Dr. Laverson and Feel Beautiful would be my first and only choice! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!"
"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."
"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."
"I recently visited Dr Laverson for my Botox injections. His office is absolutely stunning! He was very thorough in explaining his methods and the procedure. We discussed what look I wanted and decided what areas to focus on. He did a perfect job! I definitely “feel beautiful” ! I can’t wait to see future results and try other procedures. Thank you!!"
"From the first time I walked through the doors and all through my recovery I was treated so nicely. Dr. Laverson spent a lot of time talking with me to really understand what it is that I want and what will be best for my body. Cherise was so friendly and made me feel so comfortable. She was easy to get ahold of and super quick to respond to texts and always answered the phone. The nurses couldn’t have been more friendly or welcoming, they were relatable and down to earth. The anasthesiologist, Dr. Landon was very informative and kind and put me at ease. On the day of my surgery I knew I was in good hands and was not nervous at all. Throughout the process I felt as if I was their most important patient and am so glad I decided to get my breast augmentation surgery at Feel Beautiful."
