very happy - Palm Harbor, FL

I couldn't be more happy with my choice in plastic surgeons. Dr. Laufer did a wonderful job on my procedure. The procedure was fast and accurate and my recovery was even better. As a mother of 2 toddlers, i was amazed that i was able to get back to my mommy duties the very same day of my procedure, i know this can vary with each individual, but i know his skill an precision made the all the difference,

Tummy Tuck -Palm Harbor, FL

I was very impressed that Dr. Erel Laufer was such a good listener and did not talk down to me. I waited over 22 years to get a tummy tuck and breast augmentation and I thought of it every day of those 22 years at some point of the day and some days several times when I would see myself in a mirror naked or just looking down while zipping my pants after 2 children later. Not only did he work me in as I worked out of the country, but he agreed to do the surgery without putting me completely out. That was an answer to prayer since most doctors would never consider this. The nurses were so impressed with my recovery time compared to those who went under for the same procedure that they said they would do the same themselves if they were to have the same procedures. I had pain, but so does anyone else post surgery. Dr. Laufer was very attentive and professional, but also very caring. I do have to have him do a correction post healing, but the before and after was amazing and I no longer look at myself with sadness or feel I would never have had the procedures done. Great job!!! Great doctor!!! The staff were nice although they did have one nurse I found to be abrasive, but there was another one who was so nice and empathetic she made up for it right away. Thank you Dr. Laufer for making a huge difference to my life and self esteem that although appears to be an external matter was internalized and embarassing to me for so long. Thank you, thank you, thank you;-)

Not a Good Surgeon, Period - Palm Harbor, FL

I didn't choose him. I was told he was one of the best surgeons in this area. How misleading I have written reviews about Dr. Erel Laufer before, and I am writing a review again. This time because he had his lawyer send me a cease and desist. Dr. Laufer performed a Rhinoplasty on me in year of 2005. I ONLY opted for a RHINOPLASTY. I was under anestesia for 6 hours. He had made it known after I came out of surgery that he had to perform a deviated septum surgery. I DID NOT OPT to have this, he did this at his own discretion. Not only is my nose crooked, my nostrils are two different sizes (I have photographic proof of this), but he tried to make my mother pay for a surgery we NEVER agreed to have him do i.e. a septoplasty. I have posted about this on MULTIPLE plastic surgery review sites. Everything here in is the TRUTH. I have witness from my family of this, witness of the poor job that left my nose and nostrils crooked. Not to mention I have not been able to breathe right out of the left side of my nose since. Every review I have posted has been completely honest to let people know of the poor experience I had. He now has sent me a letter from his lawyer saying that if I don't remove my reviews (which I have a constitutional right to do) that he will sue me for punitive damages. According to his lawyer and himself "my procedures were proper" and that this review along with the other ones are libelous. I will continue to make this known to other people seeking plastic surgery as well as the fact that he has now tried to silence me. His actions are unethical. Please save yourself the possible legal issues and choose someone else. I will be contacting the board about this.
