"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.

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!

This was a terrific experience. I had been worried that it would be painful and i'd be out of commission for ages. The entire process was totally painless. The staff is wonderful and Dr. Schlessinger coul not have been better. The Surgicenter is brand new, clean, comfortable, and very relaxing. the staff there was suberb. After having a facelift and eye lift, I am amazed that, in one month, my healing is close to done. there are not enough superlatives for Dr. schlessinger and his staff.

I gave Dr. S 5 stars in every category because I truly felt that when I had a question, an appointment or a problem, his staff and he were there immediately with answers and help. I never felt like a number or "just a patient". I felt important.

Had three consults. I liked Dr. Schlesinger the best. His after surgery care is amazing! He wants to see you the day after surgery, day 3, day 6 then weekly if everything is okay. He answers all my questions and concern in detail. He obviously LOVES his job.
Posted by Alohalucky
Five stars for this doctor, absolutely!! The only reason I rated "Wait Times" four stars is because once in a while there is a wait at his office. However, the reason, I'm sure, is because he is a popular surgeon and more importantly, he spends the time needed with each patient to answer their questions. So really this isn't a complaint, just a comment.

I've used Dr. Schlesinger for other procedures in the past and trust him completely. He and his staff are highly professional and very accommodating. Dr. listened very intently and masterfully produced exactly what I asked from him. He explained the entire process in full detail from beginning to end so that I would have nothing to worry about. He made me feel completely at ease. I will definately use him for any procedures in the future. I suggest that anyone interested in having Rhinoplasty should consider using Dr. Schlesinger. He does amazing work and truly cares about his patients.

Of the numerous doctors I researched and interviewed I found Larry Schlesinger to be best qualified for my needs. Dr. Schlesinger was just wonderful. He listened intently, explained clearly what to expect, and gave me the precise results I asked for. I have complete trust in his compitence. I highly reccommend him and plan to use him for any future treatments. He always has a way of making me feel great about myself. That's important to me.

I gave him this rate because he deserves 5 stars for all of them! Like I said he is the BEST! It was amazing! From the first time my Husbancd and I walked in that door. It is so warm like and comfortable, everyone is so friendly. We had been on about 6 other consults beforr and felt most right with Dr.S. He made us feel so comfortable every time we went in. Also they let me bring my babies every time. Then the day of surgery was just incredible and i'm so glad I made the choice to go with Dr.S! I LOVE my breast! My breast implants gave me back my confidence again. Thanks Dr.S and staff you are all the BEST!

Dr. Schlesinger is very very knowledgeable and takes pride in his work. His staff is super helpful answering questions and concerns at any time of the day, even when the office was closed I had direct contact with someone if I needed. I highly recommend Dr. Schlesinger and his staff, and look forward to coming back in the future for diffrent procedure

I could not be luckier or have had a more amazing experience then I've had so far with Dr. Schlesinger and his staff. I gained so much trust and respect for him right away after he was exactly on point about the ways in which my nose could be improved, which resulted in as perfect a nose as I think can be accomplished. I've actually had several procedures now with Dr. Schlesinger, and the results of each are as perfect as the next. Dr. Schlesinger genuinely cares about his patients, is extremely knowledgeable, and is a highly skilled surgeon. He doesn't hesitate to give you an honest upfront assessment or answer to your questions. The entire journey has just been wonderful.

More than exceeded my expectations! Dr Larry and his staff are amazing. I was alone, or that that I was, but found myself anything but alone. Everyone was so kind and caring. I had a neck, face and lip lift and couldn't be more pleased. So very excited for all of my friends and family to see the younger me. Dr Larry has an amazing gift not only in his perfection of his skilled hands but also in his wonderful bedside manner. I never felt pressured for any reason, by any one. I am eternally greatful to have Dr Larry and his staff! - MJE, Honolulu, HI

My very good friend recommended him highly .Also some other people in the community. Dr.Schlesinger and his staff were all so informative and helpful with the whole experience. They help me with my decision of how large I should go and I am so happy I listened to the experts. Now I have breasts that are proportionate to my height and weight and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. You can trust Dr Schlesinger and his staff at there beautiful state of the art surgery facility. I highly recommend Dr. Larry Schlesinger. Thank you, Colette Walton Kailua Kona

I researched him on the interet and was very impressed with his experience. From my first phone call on, Dr. Larry and his staff were amazing. I had a neck lift, face lift and lip lift. Dr was so wonderful before, during and after my surgery. His suggestions as to what he thought I would be happy with were nothing short of perfection. I had to fly to oaha and his team went over And above helping to make my stay easy. I love my lip, especially since I never had one! My neck was something that had bothered me all my life,now I have a jaw line! With the face lift, even tho I'm still swollen, I feel 10 years younger. I will recommend him to everyone.

I chose Dr Schlesinger after seeing an ad for a mommy makeover, I knew at my consultation he was the right choice for me. After care was AMAZING! Dr Schlesinger really took the time to ensure recovery was on point. I went to Dr Schlesinger for a consultation and had a great feeling choosing him for surgery. The office staff was always friendly and helpful answering any questions I had.

Excellent ratings for all of the aboveI Found him in the phonebook while he was still on Maui. I read every other advertisement but he was the one I've chosen. Very grateful I did!! Dr. Schlesinger did an EXCELLENT job on my breast augmentation / upgrade !! And his staff are amazing!! I am extremely lucky to have Dr. Schlensinger perform my surgery. I would highly RECOMMEND him and you will not be disappointed! Thank you very much Dr. Schlensinger and staff!! I appreciate all that you have done for me.

A friend of mine and I talked about getting plastic surgery. She made her consult appointments right away and convinced me to finally make mine. After meeting with Dr. Schlesinger and two other doctors, I felt that my consult with Dr. S. was the best! He takes the time to sit and listen to your concerns and explains the details of the surgery and which procedures will work best for you individually. The office staff also makes you feel important and well taken care of each and every time you enter the office. I personally appreciate, Jenna, the patient care coordinator who accompanied me during my consult and made me feel very comfortable from the very beginning and has been my "go-to" whenever I stressed out before surgery day or any questions I've needed answered since then.

Dr. Schlesinger is a very happy man. He made me extremely comfortable. Would call me when i had any concerns and was able to ease my mind. If I was still concerned he would make an appt. just to clear things up. He helped me every step of the process. Even when I was trying to not feel pain at all he took me off the narcotic and gave me something less invasive. Overall Dr. Schlesinger is a great doctor and I thank him for everything he has done for me.

Can't say enough positive things about Dr. Schlesinger and his staff!! From the moment you walk in the office, you are greeted warmly and are made to feel comfortable. His skill is unmatched and his aftercare is excellent! I'm the kind of person that has great expectations--a perfectionist-- Dr. Schlesinger had no problem exceeding them!
Posted by Lesley687
He's amazing, no one else is as educated as he is. His knowledge and confidence makes you extremely comfortable in his care. I have a friends ready to book surgeries based on how wonderful a job he's done for me!! This is the only plastic surgeon I know of that gives so much post-care and THE BEST customer service. Their staff is friendly, they ALWAYS answer the phone, and are more than willing to help with anything you need. Dr. Schlesinger is the most educated plastic surgeon I have ever met. His confidence, superior knowledge, and photos of his work is enough to take your breath away. My husband and I are more than thrilled with the result. Thanks to the "Mommy makeover institute!!"

Dr. Schlesinger and his staff made a major surgery and recovery feel like a walk in the park. Dr. S is always so attentive and ready to help make my recovery as easy as possible. After severe consultations with different doctors, there was no doubt he was the best fit for me. My tummy looks fabulous! Thank you so much Dr. Schlesinger and staff.

I attended two of Dr. Schlesinger's seminars and was recommended by multiple friends. I have been a patient of Dr. Schlesinger's for many years - seven years ago I had a facelift, tummy tuck and liposuction. Following that, I had a breast augmentation and now I come to see Dr. Schlesinger for facial injectables. All of my surgery outcomes have been superb and beyond my expectations. His artistic ability is clear each time I come to see him for various facial injectables. Dr. Schlesinger is extremely caring and also professional. He takes the time to address all of your concerns and is extremely thorough in all that he does. His staff is fabulous and I would recommend (and often do) Dr. Schlesinger's practice to anyone. I am now pleased with my body and more confident in the way I look. I know I could not have achieved the fantastic results I did without Dr. Schlesinger's help and expertise.

I was referred to Dr. Schlesinger by a friend and I would refer ANYONE looking to have a procedure done to him. I have had 4 procedures with Dr. Schlesinger, and I would recommend him to ANYONE. Jenna and all the staff are AWESOME! My first procedure was 11 years ago, from back then I felt so comfortable with Dr. and his staff. I have had two breast aug's, a tummy tuck and a chin implant, and I would do them again. Dr. Schlesinger is truly a master at his art!

Online. Google search. Everything about Dr. Schlesinger and his office staff and surgical staff were very professional and very encouraging. I can not say anything negative about my experience with the procedure, doctor, his staff or anything else because there is nothing to complain about. If you are considering this procedure I would highly highly highly recommend you consult with Dr. Schlesinger. He knows what he's doing and he know what needs to get done for the best results possible. I am very excited with the outcome and look forward to surprise my husband with this gift.

Lipo isn’t just for people who are conventionally considered overweight. Just because your 5’4” 137 lbs doesn’t mean you don’t struggle with weight and body image too. How many times have you heard “oh you don’t need to lose weight” in a condescending tone or you feel embarrassed when you need to explain why you watch what you eat only to look around the room and see aversion on the faces of other females. But the truth of the matter is clothes hide a lot (why else were they invented other than to maybe prevent sunburn on the unmentionables). It’s not what everyone else sees but what we see when we are standing in front of the mirror naked. Some people can carry a bit (or a lot) of extra weight and still be bold, beautiful and sassy. I unfortunately am not one of those people; my back looked saggy and my stomach was depressing. After years of frustration that healthy diet and exercise just wasn’t working Dr. Schlesinger finally allowed me to give myself a break. Maybe you need to give yourself a break too. I’m glad I did.

I have a friend who went to him and she had nothing but good things to say about him. And I did research on many docs and his reputation stood out. And when I had my first consultant he was so professional and what got me is that he was confident in what he was explaining to me. I knew he was the one to do my procedure.

Internet and friends. I was interested in a breast augmentation and a breast lift, but concerned about scarring. I did my research for doctors and was impressed with Dr. Schlesinger's background and artistic talent. He answered all of my questions, explained the procedure fully and was able to perform a lift fit for my body type with minimum scarring. His bedside manner is wonderful, as is his wonderful staff. Go for it, you won't be disappointed!!

Choosing Dr. Schlesinger was the greatest decision in my life. I had a breast lift, liposuction of the hips, thighs, back and abdomen, and labiaplasty. I look like a completely different person. My breast cannot look any more natural and my stomach and legs look phenomenal. I now feel more secure in my own body and feel like a real women. Dr. Schlesinger went above and beyond to make my experience one of a kind. I really got to know him and vice versa. He knew exactly what I was looking for and went the extra mile to make sure I got exactly that.

I highly recommend Dr. Schlesinger and his staff. I met with one doctor whom I did not feel comfortable with at all. A few months later a girlfriend of mine recommended Dr. Schlesinger. I met with him and immediately felt at ease. I continued to feel more and more comfortable as he started communicating with my other doctors and coming up with a game plan so that I could move forward with my procedures without any concerns. By the time I finally had the procedure, I was completely confident that I was in safe hands. Not only was there so much extra care taken before the procedure, but after the procedure Dr. Schlesinger continued to give me over the top attention. There was one night when he called me right up until 10:00 pm and then called me the following morning at 5:58 am. I don't think anyone could have shown genuine concern more than he did. You can definitely tell that Dr. Schlesinger takes pride in what he does and that he has tremendous skills. If anyone is considering having some upgrades done to their body, I wouldn't suggest having anyone else perform them than Dr. Schlesinger and his staff, they truly are the best!

As you can read in my story (click on the title of my review above), my post pregnancy body needed a serious help. I have done research on the internet and also received a recommendation from a friend. I decided that Dr. Schlesinger will be my first choice, based on all the information I received and after my first visit I was pretty sure that I am there to stay and there is no need to look elsewhere. Now I have my own surgery experience and improved body to prove that my choice was right and YES I am recommending Dr. Schlesinger to everybody!!

Facial Reconstructive Surgery
I needed the help of a Cosmetic Surgeon for a recent facial injury as a result of a dog attack to the face. Dr. Larry Schlesinger has been there for me. He is the consummate surgeon/specialist,...but that is not exactly what I mean. He has been there FOR ME! He has gone above and beyond my expectations as a physician. He continues to demonstrate that he truly cares about me. His empathy, and concern for me before, during, and after my procedures has been remarkable, and memorable. I will never forget his kindness and care. He has promised to stay with me until I am completely satisfied with the results. No matter how long it takes. One of the most significant attributes that Dr. possesses is that inspite of his wealth of experience and knowledge, he is always keeping up to date and open to new techiniques. He is not only a wonderful doctor, but a wonderful person. I find it difficult to find the right words to express my gratitude. I have complete trust and confidence in Dr. Schlesinger and highly recommend him to anyone considering cosmetic surgery.

Friends referral and Internet research. Spent a year researching and reviewing different procedures and doctors. Actually did different consults and when I met w/Dr Schlesinger I knew he was going to be my choice. He took his time and was very through with all my questions and concerns. His staff was also excellent with any help or phone calls I made or questions I had no matter what time of day. This all helped in allowing me to be very comfortable with the surgery procedure. Thanks so much to Dr Schlesinger and his wonderful staff!!!!!!!!

Everything excellent. Reason for wait time only being 4 stars: Dr. S has a lot of customers and takes necessary time with his patients. If your appt is later in day, expect delays because there are a lot of patients and I know some will take more time than allocated. How I resolved and why I don't have to wait: I secure earliest possible appt in the morning :) Key point I want to emphasize: I get responses from Dr. And staff even if I'm inquiring on a Sunday, 6am in the morning, or after normal business hours. Top notch sincere quality service. Genuine care, responsiveness, and attention by entire staff excellent. Motivation: improve personal appearance. I did quite a bit of internet research and made some individual calls and email inquiries to come to final conclusion with selecting Dr. Schlesinger. Anything in question, I questioned. What I wish I knew beforehand was how intensive this procedure is, most women I've talked with or read about on blogs, and sites about the procedure don't talk about, look for, or are prepared for the post operation impact prior to having the procedure done. My thought is it's because they're so stoked about the end result (if results are favorable) they forget about the details of recovery.

With further research on the internet, I found Dr. Schlesinger's article about this matter and he seems to know and confident about treating this area. So when I saw he has special for the month, I scheduled appointment for consultation. After I met him I can see that he really is care about the patient's concern and he takes time to explain everything and address all my concerns.

I did some research and I found that he is the best. He is a very good doctor. I am really happy with the results. Also, he knows what he has done. Overall I am reallly grateful that I chose him as my doctor. I will certainly recommend him to others. The things that I have complain about is the time waiting in the office. However, I realize that he is a very busy one and he gets tons of patients to see.

This was my first (and only) surgary, I didnt know what to expect. Fortunately I chose Dr. Schlesinger to do my breast agumentation. I had a great experience, my breast are beautiful. The entire staff at Dr. Schlesinger office was wonderful. I would definately recommend Dr. Schlesinger to anyone and everyone.
Posted by None1
The only reason why I give the doctor a 4 star for the wait times is because, sometimes it can be a awhile before he sees you and it's only because he has so many patients to see in such a short period of time. But when it's your turn, he answers all of your questions or any of your concerns that you have.
