Dr. Steve Laverson attended the United States Naval Academy on a Congressional Appointment from 1975-77, and graduated first in his class at the University of Maryland in 1979. At the University of Maryland Medical School in Baltimore, Steve decided that plastic surgery was the best fit for his artistic ability and for his love of beauty.
Not one to abide short cuts, after medical school Dr. Laverson trained in general surgery and plastic surgery as an intern, resident, and fellow for ten years. He learned and operated at many esteemed institutions with great surgeons at University of Maryland, Johns Hopkins, University of Pennsylvania, Emory, UCLA, USC, Stanford, and other respected centers. Dr. Laverson attributes his strong surgical confidence and technical skill to lessons absorbed during those years, in particular, his chief residency in general surgery at Martin Luther King Jr. (MLK) General Hospital in South Central Los Angeles. Perhaps the busiest trauma center in the world when he was there, MLK provided continuous opportunities for independent management of all types of major blunt and penetrating trauma. This experience was a crucible for the development of broad applied anatomical and physiologic knowledge, mature surgical judgment, technical excellence, and a sound foundation for a lifetime of intangible professional expertise that is not widely available.

“I never thought I would have any type of plastic surgery…..EVER! I am a proponent of you are who you are physically and you should be happy no matter what you look like. However, after a lit of struggle I found myself in a place where I needed some help. I did a lit of research on cosmetic surgery, the benefits & risks, doctors and their reviews. After narrowing it down and finding Dr. Alavi I made the decision to move forward with liposuction. Dr.Alavi & his staff were welcoming, prompt, very knowledgeable and all in all great! They answered my nine million questions, addressed my many concerns, were honest and presented me with all viable options for my situation and wants. They even slid me in to a cancellation spot for my surgery. I am now 1 month post surgery and SO happy I did it! My recovery was minimal….I was up and at my sons baseball game 2 days post surgery. My pain was minimal and my results are more than I could have asked for. I am so grateful I found Dr. Alavi and decided to move forward with my decision!” – Nicole Taylor
