5 out of 5 stars Fat Transfer

Highly Recommend Dr. Aronowitz for Stem Cell and Fat Transfer - Los Angeles, CA

Dr. Aronowitz told me jokes, talked to my friend who was in the room with me, and did his best to take my mind off the pain. While the procedure was not enjoyable, I likely would not have trusted anyone else to do it and am glad that I followed his advice to do them. His office staff is wonderful. Everyone is polite and accommodating. His surgery coordinator, Lisa is easy to work with, and I absolutely love his surgery nurse, Patti. In addition to the stem cell work, I also had minor liposuction on my neck and had my breasts augmented using my own fat, something I did to boost my confidence and make me feel better about my appearance. I could not be more pleased with my new breasts. I have since referred two friends to Dr. Aronowitz, with a third going to see him in the next few weeks.

Bad Experience - Los Angeles, CA

I booked a breast augmentation surgery with Dr. A to fix a tubular deformity. The day after the surgery, I noticed that one breast was significantly larger than the other (one B cup and D cup). I called the office, and was told Dr. A had left for vacation. When he returned a week later, he said one breast was only swollen, and that I should get massage sessions from a woman in his office to make the swelling go down. The massages were $225/session!! After realizing the massages weren't helping, he agreed to do a revision. I was already $11,000 down, so I asked about the cost of revision surgery. I was told that Dr. A would waive his fee, but I would have to pay "a maximum of a few hundred dollars for the anesthesia and surgery room costs." I got the revision surgery. I then got a first bill for $2,000, and a second bill for $3,000. I was told that I would have to pay, or they would submit to collections. After two surgeries (the second was for Dr. A to fix his first surgery), I'm down $16,000. If you choose to go with him, watch your wallet.

Beware of This Celebrity Plastic Surgeon - Los Angeles, CA

Mu ocular surgeon choise him. At the initial appt., I thought it was strange that he never examined areas of my face that were to receive stem cell fat grafts. Since he has a prominent reputation because of Suzanne Somers, I just trusted him to to the procedures I paid for. My ocular surgeon was so sympathetic to my disappointment at his non-performance, that he offered to do the fat grafts, even though it was outside his area of expertise.

Tummy Tuck by Core Medical Group Dba L.A. Center Dr. Joel Aronowitz. Santa Monica, CA

Two very quickly since they had already been paid and with no attention nor concern or answers to my questions. I paid half cash and they ran my debit card one week prior to the surgery without my consent. I would rate but this place does not deserve one star in any sector. Rating a ZERO bedside manner I wouldn't know never saw him after the surgery just got put in a wheelchair and taken outside to my vehicle to get home.

Mommy Makeover, Part 1

Attention Mamas: Second to your gorgeous new little bundle of joy, first time moms eventually turn their attention to their post-baby bodies. In between the late night feedings, changing dirty diapers and sleep deprivation you could try to squeeze in a leg lift or two.
