It’s true that no one enters our life without a purpose. I have learned that on my continual journey of becoming the “new” me. One of the individuals I have been most fortunate and blessed to have enter my life is Dr. Michael Pickart. He has played a pivotal role in my personal transformation. First physically, which has since lead to an emotional and psychological change as well. He is a man of integrity and a surgeon of whom I hold the utmost respect. Having been obese the majority of my life, then losing nearly 100 pounds, I found myself still quite depressed and distraught with my physical appearance after the weight loss. I hadn’t lost all of my weight before deciding to attend one of Dr. Pickarts informational seminars. It was one of the best decisions I made. He was very welcoming, forthcoming, direct and informative in his approach to explaining what can be done for individuals who have experienced large weight losses and are left with excessive skin. Listening to Dr. Pickart in his seminar gave me the courage to schedule an appointment with him for a consultation. It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do to physically expose myself with all my flaws to someone else but I can’t begin to emphasize enough how comfortable Dr. Pickart as well as his staff made me feel that day and during that experience. He was very positive during the consultation and was completely honest as he educated me in what could be done to improve my physical appearance after the weight loss. I left the office that day scheduling a circumferential body lift and feeling very excited for the future. Since that day I have had the body lift as well as a breast lift/reduction and soon will complete my transformation with an arm surgery to remove excess skin. At every step along the way, Dr. Pickart, his nurse Teresa his office assistant Yaeko and his office manager Shannon have been so supportive and helpful. Dr. Pickart is readily available to answer questions, provide support and give reassurance as needed. I was so pleasantly surprised when Dr. Pickart phoned my mother who was waiting for me during surgery to give her updates to ease her mind, and again as he answered my questions by email or personally by phone. I’ve faced many medical challenges throughout my life and quite honestly have not come across a doctor as supportive, friendly, honest, accessible and skilled in their practice as Dr. Pickart. In my opinion, and that comes highly as I’ve now had several procedures with Dr. Pickart, I would encourage anyone who is even thinking about some type of plastic/restorative/body enhancing surgery, to definitely at least have a consultation with Dr. Pickart prior to allowing any other surgeon perform a procedure on you. He is one of “The” Best! I will be forever thankful that he entered my life and helped change it for the better.

Dr. Pickart is a wonderful surgeon and an overall great guy! He is easy to talk to, honest, and answers all questions very thoroughly. His staff is fantastic and always works to accommodate you. I had a tummy tuck in April and couldn't be happier!!! The pre and post-op care was exceptional. He answers emails, texts, phone calls ASAP. When we did my pre-op he gave me his cell phone # which was so comforting.
