Ciao Bella’s Helping Hands is a community service project focused on improving the lives, self confidence and self worth of any uninsured individual who has suffered a disfiguring illness, surgery, accident or congenital problem related to a birth defect.
Once a month, the staff from Ciao Bella Medical Spa and Vein Clinic will select a recipient in need – someone who could not otherwise afford reconstructive surgery. Dr. Edgardo Zavala-Alarcon and Dr. Carlos Mata will perform a completely complimentary procedure with the sole intent to positively alter the recipient’s quality of life.
Since opening Ciao Bella Medical Spa & Vein Clinic in 2007, Dr. Edgardo Zavala-Alarcon has been committed to help his patients achieve the look they desire to improve their quality of life and self esteem.
Ciao Bella’s Helping Hands is an extension of that ongoing mission and passion offered pro bono to any individual who can benefit from a plastic and reconstructive surgery, but never dreamed it was within their reach due to financial hardship.
Ciao Bella’s Helping Hands is led by Dr. Mata, an outstanding, skilled Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, who has spent his entire career volunteering his services for the betterment of those most in need. Dr. Mata has an extensive background on Aesthetic surgery for both adults and children.
Ciao Bella’s Helping Hands will provide surgical procedures to the body, face or hands to improve aesthetic and functional outcome. The program is open to anyone with a medical need, however, candidates must be 15 years of age or older and able to tolerate local anesthesia, as well as moderate sedation.
Ciao Bella Medical Spa and Vein Clinic will accept self nominations and patient referrals. An application must be submitted via email at CiaoBellaHelpingHands@gmail.com or in person at our facility. Please include a brief essay detailing medical condition, need for a reconstructive procedure and financial hardship. Photos must be submitted along with the application.
I was so pleased with the honesty and concern for my best interest that not only did the Dr. provide but also Rosie. They want you to be completely happy with your results and offer an honest opinion of what procedures will help you obtain that result. The nurses are so friendly and helpful before and after the procedure. I would and will refer Dr. Zavala to my friends and family.
I absolutely love my results!! The nurses took good care of me and questions I had before and after the procedure they answered. Doctor explaining what he was going to do before the procedure step by step and also how I was going to feel after the procedure overall was a good experience. I cant express enough how amazing my results look and how much confidence I have gained.
El Dr. Zavala es muy professional, y entiende lo que nos molesta, o como nos sentimos. El conoce muy bien como debe lucir el cuerpo femenino. Gracias a su experiencia. Me hizo sentir segura y tranquila. Le recomiendo este doctor al cualquiera que dese verse major. Y Dr. Carlos Mata no se queda atras, muy professional, y sabe escuchar!
Every time I came to the office the whole staff was always very nice and welcoming. The day of my surgery the nurses took great care of me and made me feel comfortable. The doctor is very nice as well. Also my boy did not react well to one of the medications and Dr. Zavala kept me longer to make sure I was ok and the nurses kept a close eye on me. They were all so sweet. I am very thankful for that!
Staff very friendly and supportive, Dr. Zavala extremely professional and proficient in everything he does. It almost feels like you are part of the family when you come in, and you know that the doctor and his staff only have your best interests in mind.
