About the Alessi Institute
The Alessi Institute is a cosmetic plastic surgery practice in Beverly Hills focusing on facial plastic surgery. Our practice is also home to some of the finest breast and body contouring specialists around. We offer a host of comprehensive surgical and non surgical treatment options proven to help you maintain a youthful-looking appearance or restore areas of the face and body that have been altered by age, pregnancy, weight loss, sun damage or other factors over the years. We are in the business of helping you look and feel your best, not only on the outside, but on the inside too. The true rewards of our efforts are seen every day in the confidence our patients exude following their procedures. But our belief is that maintaining beauty starts with prevention.


If you’re not ready to jump into cosmetic improvement through a surgical option, don’t be discouraged. We can provide incredibly, dramatic results through a variety of safe, effective non-invasive treatments that require little to NO downtime! Many of the these treatments are performed within minutes…on your lunch break…having you back to work or other activities within an hour! A combination of in-office, non surgical treatments is popularly referred to as the “Lunch-Time” Facelift. However. Dr. David Alessi developed the FAB Facelift, a combination of treatments that can provide results much like those seen from a traditional, surgical facelift. Patients who have chosen our FAB Facelift™ say they look five to ten years younger.

Patient Photos
The popular phrases “seeing is believing.” “a picture’s worth a thousand words.” and “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” each ring true for so many things we are able to witness with our own eyes.

And when it comes to cosmetic surgery, it is critical to view the actual patient photo results of any plastic surgeon you’re considering to perform your surgery or non-surgical treatments. Results should look as natural as possible, without revealing exactly what has been altered, but rather revealing–overall–a more refreshed, younger-looking face or a more shapely, proportionate and contoured body.

At the Alessi Institute of Beverly Hills cosmetic surgery office, our goal is to achieve dramatic improvement with the most natural looking results for each patient. Upon scheduling a private consultation, you will be able to view many additional photos of those patients who have given us permission to share their photos “in office” only.
