5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants
My first consultation with a plastic surgeon left me with more questions than answers. My second and last consultation changed me forever. During my second consultation I met with Jenna and then Dr. Schlesinger. I had talked with Jenna at length about my first experience and how I had more questions than answers. Jenna took the time to patiently answer all of my questions and to educate me on the process from beginning to end. She was very knowledgeable, forth coming, caring, and helpful. Later that day I met with Dr. Schlesinger and was blown away by his magnetic personality, wealth of knowledge, his love and passion for what he does, and his belief in always doing what is morally and ethically right by his patients. He is one of the most humble plastic surgeons I have ever met. His accolades and achievements supersede all other plastic surgeons on the island and yet I feel that at times he has no idea how he changes the lives of those around him. It is impossible to meet him and not be changed by him. We talked at length about why I wanted to have plastic surgery and what my expectations were. He educated me on what he could and would do for me and why certain things were necessary such as the drains. He explained to me what to expect at visits and how we would be seeing quite a bit of one another during the process. He also assured me that if something didn’t look right on me he would not do it and if at any point during the process something was to go wrong that he would fix it at no additional cost to me. There is no other plastic surgeon on the island that guarantees their work at no additional cost. After my meeting with him I knew that he was the one and the only one I could trust to do my surgery. On March 24, 2014 Dr. Schlesinger performed a Benelli Mastopexy and augmentation on me at the Surgery Center. Before my procedure I was a 38 B and now I'm a 38 DDD. I had 750 cc Silicone Implants placed Sub-muscular or under the muscle for a more natural look.Dr. Schlesinger was the breath of life for me on that day and what he did for me goes far beyond what words will ever be able to convey on paper. My breasts look amazing, I am happy, and now I smile more than ever before. He gave me the quality of life that I had so desperately needed and wanted for so very long. My friends and family have even noticed that I have a glow around me since my surgery. I am now the person I should be. I am currently two months and thirteen days post op and life is amazing! Dr. Schlesinger still continues to amaze me with his stories and humble personality! His staff has taken such great care of me as well. I look forward to seeing them all but especially him on my apts. I am currently saving up for Liposuction and hope to make it a reality as soon as possible. I would recommend Dr. Schlesinger to all my friends, family and everyone on the island who is considering plastic surgery. I like to tell him that he is the Lamborghini of Plastic Surgeons but in reality he is a miracle worker. Thank you Dr. Schlesinger for allowing me to love mirrors again!

"Thank you" does not express the gratitude my gratitude my family and I have for Dr. Schlesinger. After 2 botched surgeries & over $15,000 with a different plastic surgeon, I was referred to Dr. Schlesinger being told, "He is the best in his field". I am still recovering, but can honestly agree with that statement. His knowledge on new procedures, skill level and ability to always reassess what is currently relevant to my personal situation is remarkable. No question or worry is too small for him to answer & explain. His post-surgical care is where I have been most impressed with countless free visits to ensure a successful result. Dr. Schlesinger, Jenna & Jennifer continue to take extra care to monitor all aspects of my healing and make my appointments feel like a visit with friends vs. a tedious doctors exam. I can already see the day that I am sitting on the beach no longer ashamed, embarrassed or in pain, and that is all thanks to Dr. Schlesinger and his amazing staff correcting the mistakes of a less qualified plastic surgeon. I can only wish that I had found Dr. Schlesinger first and for that I would recommend that anyone even thinking of doing anything, take advantage of his fee consultations and see for yourself.

Overall, a fantastic experience. My body looks great, the surgery went great and I healed without any issues. He is obviously very experienced in what he does. I had a liposuction in my back, abs, inner and outer thighs, inner knees and hips as well as a BBL. I'd definitely come here again and I recommend this doctor to my friends.

I chose Dr. Schlesinger after having consultations with other Doctors. The moment I met him I knew that he was the one I could trust without hesitation. I first met with Dr. Schlesinger because I wanted to live the rest of my life without the crippling insecurities that consumed so much of my energy. The moment I met him, I knew that he was sincerely invested in helping me overcome these struggles. He was honest about the expected results and optimistic that he could give me what I was hoping for. The results of his work have changed my life. For the first time in my entire life, I love my body. I am proud of the way I look. The incredible results from the Liposuction to my abdomen, thighs,waist, and butt have literally set me free from the debilitating insecurities I once had. Dr. Schlesinger is amazing.

I gave Dr. Schlesinger 5 stars for my wonderful experience. If I could give him an extra star for having a fabulous staff I would! I had consultations with a few diffferent plastic surgeons in Oahu but never felt very comfortable until I had my consultation with Dr. Schlesinger. He answered all of my questions and eased all of my fears about surgery. He was also very helpful with sizing although the finaly desicion was my own. He wasnt even upset when I changed my mind about what size I wanted to be and he had to squeeze me into his busy schedule for a 3rd consultation! If I ever wanted or needed another surgery Dr. Schlesinger would be my first choice. It has been a wonderful experience thanks to Dr. Schlesinger and his amazing staff. Obviously, I would reccommend him to anyone who is interested in changing their life through plastic surgery.

His bedside manner is excellent! He listens well to your concerns. The wait time to get in was a bit long, but that's to be expected with the amount of individualized attention he gives each person--and it was definitely worth the wait and the cost! Found him on RealSelf!

The doctor and staff were all friendly and attentive. They always remember you and details about your procedure. They seem to genuinely care about their patients and ask questions about their lives. Dr. Schlesinger's work is amazing and he goes to great lengths to make sure his patients are happy and well after their procedure. I Have already recommended dr. Schlesinger to my friends and I would recomend him to anyone wanting plastic surgery. Dr. Schlesinger and his staff were readily available to answer questions throughout the process, which was very comforting.

He has been amazing so far and so has everyone else in his offices. I have had a 24/7 way to get hold of him and he has also went out of his way to meet with me and check my progress even on Sunday when his office was closed.

Dr. Schlesinger was recommended to me by two other people, and I'm so glad that I listened to them and chose him as my PS. From day one, I have been treated with respect by him and his entire staff. Even more importantly, I am so pleased with the results of his work. For years I wanted to get surgery and just never did it. So I finally chose this doctor, he did the surgery, and now I feel like a whole new person; it really changed my life. I went to a few other consultations before choosing Dr. Schlesinger. They seemed competent and likeable enough, but not even close to Dr. Schlesinger. For anyone considering plastic surgery, I would recommend them talking with this doctor. I know you'll be as happy as I am.

Every aspect of the experience of my plastic surgeries that I had contemplated for many years turned out wonderful. I thought I would have to go to the mainland for excellent surgery and get a doctor I had seen on tv to make sure my facelift would be excellent with no complications. Dr schlessinger right here in Hawaii made my dreams come true!

(From the Magazine “Aesthetic Surgery”, Fall 1994) Recently; a middle-aged male patient scheduled a consultation for a touch-up of his lumbar roll area, which I had previously suctioned. My entry point for the cannula during the primary procedure was the intragluteal fold; I routinely do both superficial and deep liposuction through that incision. Although I have performed primary liposuction for this problem on almost 100 patients, I have never before seen a residual...
From Lipoplasty Magazine, 1992, Vol. 9 No. 3 At times female patients complain about festoons of fat hanging over the halter top or brazier straps on their backs. Historically, the upper back is an area not often considered for liposuction. It is considered a difficult area to suction since it is very vascular and bleeding is copious. In addition, there is only a single layer of fat and some surgeons have warned that suctioning could create ripples in the skin surface...
