Back for More - Dr. Aiello, Anna and his staff are always so nice and informative. I am a returning patient and had breast implants and augmentation done 15 years ago. They are still in very good condition and I’ve been happy with them 100% . Because of the wonderful work Dr. Aiello did, 15 years later and after giving birth to 2 more children, I’m back for a tummy tuck. The consultation and experiences wit... More

Always an amazing experience! - I am a returning client from 2002. Today I scheduled my surgery for Blepharoplasty Lower for December 6th. I would never let anyone but Dr. Aiello touch my face. He and his staff always make me feel comfortable and at ease. Back in 2002 I was referred by my best friend and when I saw her breast augmentation and tummy tuck I knew he was a great doctor. The one thing that I really like about Dr. Aiello is that he will let you know if you don't need something done. His pricing is very reasonable. I was excited to see him on Dr. 90210 some years back. He's a great surgeon and I highly recommend him. More

Highly Recommend Ocean Plastic Surgery - I have had a breast augmentation and a tummy tuck with lipo ( a few years apart) and I've been extremely happy with my results! Dr. Aiello is a professional and you feel extremely comfortable and confident with him. His staff is friendly and awesome, the office is nice and they are flexible and accommodating with setting appointments which is extremely helpful with my crazy schedule. I live in Corona and while there are many other surgeon options closer to me, I choose to drive to Los Alamitos because I know I'm in good hands with Dr. Aiello. I highly recommend Dr. Aiello with Ocean Plastic Surgery Center, you will be in good hands before, during and after your procedures! More

AMAZING AMAZING - This review is long overdue. Here's my story. I had breast implants when I was 24 and they were put over the muscle. They were silicone and they were hard from the beginning to the end. They never looked real. I just lived with it unll 27 years later they were encapsulated so bad that one of them looked almost deformed. Three years ago I had a three-level fusion in my back, which they had to cut also through my tummy. Needless to say, that completely ruined my muscles and having three kids didn't help the looks of it either. I had huge scar from belly button to pubis area.It was awful. I would have never thought to be in a bikini again. Dr. Aiello changed my life completely. He performed a miracle to say the least. I had my implants removed and new ones put in and a tummy tuck with a little lipo to go with it. I trusted him completely. I brought in a picture of what I wanted my new breasts to look like and he did exactly what I wanted. I did tummy tuck and implants at the same time, so I felt no pain from the implant surgery. The tummy tuck was painful, but worth every bit of pain. I was only down two weeks and that wasn't really down completely. I feel so happy now that I have natural looking breasts and my tummy scar is completely gone and my tummy is tight like it was before my back surgery, but it's even better. I can wear bikinis now and I'm 52 years old! He really takes care of his patients. He's easy to talk to and treats you like you're the only patient he has. I would do it all over again if i had to .He changed my life, adding so much confidence. I am so happy. I would recommend him to anyone. If I ever decide to do any other surgery, he's the only one I would go to.7 More

I am 8 months out from a tummy tuck done by Dr. William Aiello in Los Alamitos, CA. Dr. Aiello is a very caring and patient doctor that takes his time to go over everything with you and answers all of your questions. His staff is very accommodating and helpful as well. I would recommend him to anyone and I am currently considering another procedure in a different area of my body. I am back to regular activities now, but still experience some swelling on a daily basis. Never had any issues with pain, just degrees of swelling, which are subsiding on a monthly basis. My stomach looks amazingly flat, I would say even flatter than my pre-baby body. I am happy with my results to date. My scar is still red, and I am currently using Siligen on it. More

A Very Happy Patient - Dr. Aiello and his staff are absolutely amazing. I am a returning patient of Dr. Aiello's. My first surgery, I had a tummy tuck, with Lipo and a breast augmentation. The results were amazing, that I returned to have a Brazilian butt Lift. After having a child, I struggled to get my body back. I went in for a free consultation at Ocean Plastic Surgery Center, and was so amazed and satisfied with my consultation, that I scheduled my surgery appointment that same day. Not only did I get my body back, I gained my confidence back. I love my results. Thank you Dr. Aiello!!! More

what a journey and change! - I went to 9 different plastic surgeons within one year for a consult to get a tummy tuck lipo. My mind was made up for a lipo only. However when I had my first consult with Dr. Aiello he was honest about what I needed. He took the time to speak to me about the pros and cons. I felt very supported. I also returned a second time for the final consultation. The tummy tuck post surgery was rough the first 3-4 days. I felt very supported by the staff after my operation. I would definitely recommend Dr. Aiello due to his professional experience and honesty. I felt the doctor had the patient's best interest. I can't wait for a few months to go by to see my final results. I was happy with my results one week after my surgery and so were my friends and loved ones. More

Dr. Aiello has a great sense of humor and made me feel very comfortable. I was referred to him by a friend and she had the same kind of experience with him as I did... AMAZING!! We both had a tummy tuck. She looks awesome, and I'm completely blown away with my results. They truly exceeded my expectations!!! I only wish I didn't wait so long to have this surgery. I also feel like Dr. Aiello did a a great job making me a new belly button. I've seen pictures of others and not all look so good. I'm very pleased with mine. I give him 5 stars! More

Where experience and knowledge come together for a beautiful result - Best experience from consult to post surgical care. Dr. Aiello has created an environment of friendly, comfortable, and professional in his staff. I felt comfortable talking about every issue I had. Never was I led to believe I needed a procedure unwanted. I chose OPSC after reading Dr. Aiello's medical background. This man knows a lot more than how to perform life changing plastic surgeries. Dr. Aiello is always available to answer all of my crazy questions and his nurse, Tracy, well, I just love her. She really knows her stuff and how to care for people. I have received the Mommy Makeover (which included a breast lift and tummy tuck) and the results were amazing. OPSC has not only given me results that changed my physical appearance, they have given me back a confidence I didn't realized I had lost. If you are searching for a place to come where knowledge and experience come together, stop looking because you have found the place!Looking forward to next procedure(s)... More

Great Experience - When I had decided to have lipo of the abdomen I did a lot of research and had a very clear idea of what I wanted to achieve and had very clear expectations of what the surgery would do for me. I interviewed multiple doctors and explained what I was looking for; 4 of the 4 didn't bother to really listen to me. Those doctors automatically told me my only option was a tummy tuck. I was beginning to feel discouraged until I met Dr. Aiello. Both he and his staff actually listened to what I wanted to achive, agreed t hat I was being realistic - he said lipo would get me to where I wanted. At no point did he trying to sell me on a bigger surgery or tell me I'd regret not doing the tummy tuck - all of the other doctors did both of these things. I am very happy with my results and don't regret my decision to go with lipo and no tummy tuck. Dr. Aiello is very direct and he's not one to chit chat much. He'll come in to discuss the medical aspects of your procedure and then he's gone. This suited me just fine as he absolutely tells it like it is and will explain things in great detail to make sure you understand the decision you're making. In addition, I really liked that Dr. Aiello is conservative in his surgical approach. In my specific case he was careful to remove enough fat that I wouldn't appear distorted look or "cobbly" as many doctors alluded to. Actually during one of my follow up appointments he felt there was more fat he could have removed, and ended doing so without any additional cost. He does have two locations and I can only speak to Los Alamitos - it was intimate, well cared for and inviting. The surgical suite is right in their office which was a nice benefit.All in all, if you're looking for a doctor who is going to coddle you at your bedside, he might not be your option. If you're looking for a doctor who will help you achieve your goals and walk you through the surgical details in order for you to make the most effective decision, then Dr. Aiello is your man. More

I am a 40 year old mother of 3. I have been wanting a mommy makeover for many years. I went to see Dr. Aiello 10 years ago for a consult about having a lift and implant. I was referred to him by at least 10 people who had had breast augmentation from him. He was very comfortable to talk to and just said it how it was (which I like straight forward talk). I quickly could see his knowledge was extent in all areas of plastic surgery. Within months I had become unexpectedly pregnant with my third child which put my plans for plastic surgery on hold for a bit. But after three kids I knew I would want the whole shebang. Fast forward 8 years, I was on a mission to get my body back and go into my 40’s feeling like my old self. I worked really hard to loose almost 40 lbs and my end goal/prize to myself was a mommy makeover. There were times I tried to talk myself out of it simply because it was a lot of money to spend on myself and I felt rather guilty. But one day I asked myself, in 10m years when I’m turning 50 will I regret not doing the surgery when I was 40, the answer to myself was a HELL YEAH I WILL. So then I know I had to do it or I would regret it. I succeeded in my weight loss and in October 2015 I finally went for my consult with Dr. Aiello. I meet with Haley first so we could discuss all things mommy makeover before the Dr. came in. She was so informative and knowledgeable about this particular operation because a year earlier she too had it done. After meeting with her and Dr. Aiello I felt so excited about being with them for this life changing surgery.My surgery was booked for Feb. 10th 2016. Everything leading up to the surgery was great. I felt informed and comfortable that all my questions were being answered. The day of surgery I was met with Shannon, a super sweet women who I instantly felt comfortable with and taken care of. I was not nervous but very excited to be finally ready to fulfil this dream of mine. That entire day went smoothly, everyone in the office, nurses, other doctors where all incredible. It was a great experience from beginning to end.It has now been a little over six months since my surgery and I can say it was the best decision I have ever made. I don’t regret it for one second. I am so glad I made the choice to go with Dr. Aiello and his staff. It was the best experience with great results. My recovery was amazing. He did my tummy tuck drain less, and is why I think my recovery was so easy. I felt really good. I am a hair stylist and was at work behind my chair after 2 weeks, and felt ready to be there. My stomach and scares look amazing. My lift and implants look so natural and feel like me. Dr. Aiello did a great job and I have already recommended him to several of my friends and clients. More

42 year old with 1 child/breast aug & tummy tuck - Orange County, CA - I have had multiple procedures done by Dr. Aiello; a tummy tuck and a breast aug. I continue to go back to Dr. Aiello’s office because his work is exceptional and his staff is very friendly. They told me exactly what to expect during and after the procedure. It has been over 2 years since I have had both procedures done, but I am extremely happy with the outcome of his work. More

35 Yo, 3 Kids, Need a Mommy Makeover - Los Alamitos, CA - I am a 35 year old mom of three. I always knew I would need a lift one day, especially after nursing three little ones. I started working out and living a healthier lifestyle just before my youngest turned one and I was left with saggy skin and breasts. I read so many reviews of women doing their surgeries later and almost all regretted not doing sooner. I decided now was the time for me, so I met with two other surgeons on my quest for a mommy makeover prior to meeting with Dr. Aiello's office. I was impressed with both doctors I met with, but had a friend that underwent the "mommymakeover" with Dr. Aiello and I thought I'd check him out. The office itself is nice and in a nice area of Los Alamitos. We met with Anna, patient coordinator and Dr. Aiello. I did not meet a patient coordinator at previous doctors, and thought that was nice having someone as a contact there to ask questions, etc. Having already done this type of meeting, I was eager to see if he had the same thoughts and if we were on the same page. Our meeting went well, Dr. Aiello is extremely knowledgeable and answered all of my questions without feeling rushed. I was already semi-educated on the drainless TT from research and prior meetings, so I was happy to hear that he performs almost all of his tummy tucks this way. My husband and I left the office that afternoon, both feeling confident in our choice with Dr. Aiello and his staff. Fast-forward to my surgery day. I was met by Tracey, his nurse, whose role in my opinion is just as important was knowledgeable, direct and to the point (which I respect) and kind as well. While I'm only a little more than a month post op, my results have been amazing and recovery is going great. Something I didn't consider pre op was the after care experience. I have been to maybe 6 post-op appointments and with the exception of one time I always get back and seen on time. These appointments are critical, because you'll likely have a ton of questions and with each day/ week things are changing. This was the first plastic surgery I'd ever experienced and have been following all of my post op directions to a T. Kacey is the girl at the front and she is very sweet and helpful every time I visit as well. Would and have recommend Dr. Aiello and his office to anyone looking to undergo this surgery. I have a feeling I'm going to rock a bikini for the first time in YEARS this summer!! Thanks to Dr. Aiello!! More

35 Yo, 3 Kids, Need a Mommy Makeover - Los Alamitos, CA - Hello!! My story is the same as many. I have three children 5 and under. I gained between 30-40 pounds with each pregnancy and breastfed all 3. I am almost (3 lbs to go!) to my pre- pregnancy weight and am continuing a healthier lifestyle. I have always had larger breasts and when I finished nursing my youngest they really started to show signs I do not like. I am a 36DD (long lol) and would like to maintain that size only fuller and lifted. I've had three consults in the last month and finally decided on a surgeon. My surgeon has recommended a breast reduction of my left breast to match the other side (and a lift of both) and we have not decided on a size implant yet. I will also be getting a tummy tuck and lipo of my hips and upper abdomen. I have found this site to not only be addicting but helpful and informational; so my goal is to update often throughout my journey! More

35 Years Old 1 Child - Having always been an overweight child I lost over 50 lbs my senior year in high school. This resulted in a lot of excess skin around my stomach area. Even though I have worked out my whole life th skin still wouldn't tighten up so after having my son at 33 I realized it was time to do something about it. I had a full tummy tuck with Lipo of the flanks. Today I'm 13 months post op. I went to Dr. Aiello in Los Alamitos, California. He was amazing and very honest. The first few days are the hardest but each week it gets better. My advice is to be patient with the results. More

It was a great experience from beginning to end.It has now been a little over six months since my surgery and I can say it was the best decision I have ever made. I don’t regret it for one second. I am so glad I made the choice to go with Dr. Aiello and his staff. It was the best experience with great results. My recovery was amazing. He did my tummy tuck drain less, and is why I think my recovery was so easy. I felt really good. I am a hair stylist and was at work behind my chair after 2 weeks, and felt ready to be there. My stomach and scares look amazing. My lift and implants look so natural and feel like me. Dr. Aiello did a great job and I have already recommended him to several of my friends and clients. More

Hard W/CC for 13+ Yrs, Time to Fix, Left Breast Sagging 2 Inches Lower Than Right Due to Tightness - Los Alamitos, CA - I have been in pain for over a decade. Time to get new implants and try again. Dr. Aiello and Tiffany, his assistant, were my first contacts. They were so kind, and I felt in such good hands that I decided to add an arm lift and mini tummy tuck to my breast procedures. I'm 52 and had my original saline smooth implants done at 39. My right one hardened and a doctor tried to fix it, but it hardened again. This time I chose texturized saline implants. I had 330s and went to 475. Day 5 ...they look nice, I'm still very swollen. More

52 Year Old, Four Children - Los Alamitos, CA - Hello, I am a mother of four adult children. After having my 4th child I had always wanted to get a tummy tuck. Being stretched out four times and each baby weighing 8 and 9 pounds did a job on my tummy. I also breast fed each one of them for a min six months, so with the pregnancies and breastfeeding I was very hard on myself when it came to my body. Finally after 16 years of wanting this I finally decided it was time. More
