Dr. Mowlavi is a great guy. He did my medicare paid mole removal in a prominent spot on my face that my dermatologist did not want to touch. I think... negative reviews, if any, must come from high maintenance people. If you want a positive experience go with the flow, get an early appointment or you will wait, he is very busy. He is worth waiting for. I was so happy to have this surgery over with and done so well I do not think there will even be trace of a scar. Great bedside manner, but he does go with the attitude you bring into the office with you. If you are cranky and angry I don't think you should bring that to his doorstep. There is no harm in appreciating an artist! Sure he has an ego, he's entitled to it and from my experience he is also a kind and pleasant man, as is his staff. I drove 45 min to get to his office and did not mind it because of the results he delivered. Dr. Laguna! Yay!read more
Dr. Mowlavi is a great surgeon! Whenever he worked on me, I knew I would never have to get a revision surgery. His work is amazing and permanent and... I reccomend him to everyone. He has incredible confidence in his work and he makes you feel comfortable in those magic hands!read more

Wonderful place, made me feel really comfortable and calm during my procedure. Would recommend every time.
I am happy with everything, it was all good. I was content with the whole process, from my first consultation to my operation day, and now with my... results. I am happy because the surgery was beautiful and now I want to have my breasts done too. My tummy tuck scar is fading more than I thought it would and my stomach is so tight. Also, you will definitely need someone to help you in the after process, part of the reason it was so good was because my brother was caring for me. Dr. Mowlavi has delivered his excellent results once again, and I am definitely happy with my results! Thank you Dr. Mowlavi and thank you to the team.read more
After having multiple cosmetic surgeries over the years in different states Dr. Mowavi and his staff are definitely the most professional experience... that I have had.
