1 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting

Loss of Thousands of Dollars Due to Misrepresentation by Dr. Brightman Re Zeltiq - New York, NY

Based on my own experience I would say that Dr. Brightman has a basic competence but that competence is entirely undermined by her mercenary motivations. She encouraged me to have a second procedure without even knowing that the first one had worked telling me that this would improve the final end result ( I had Zeltiq on my outer thighs- I am slim with a slight bulge in the outer thigh area) which was a lie- I had no improvement WHATSOEVER. which she acknowledged on a follow- up visit some months later. Had she not mislead me I would have the first round of Zeliq to see if it worked and not spent another near 1,000 for no reason whatsoever. When I pointed this out to her her attitude was that one can never know if a procedure will work. If that is the case why did she encourage me to have second session before the results of the first session were known which would take at least three months. I am absolutely outraged and warn other people that while I presume she is competent she is not acting in patients best interest but rather her overriding interest is in lining her own pocketbook.

She Makes Me Look Amazing Every Time! - New York, NY

Dr. Brightman is more than a doctor, she is an artist, able to pick up on the smallest details of facial structure, and symmetry. I work in a field where beauty, and personal maintenance is of great importance, but where looking natural is also key. Dr. Brightman has done such a beautiful job with my Botox, and filler, that people regularly think I am ten years younger than my actual age. This to me, is more than I could ever ask for. I would send anyone to Dr. Brightman who is looking for excellent results, and a Doctor who provides excellent results, and an extraordinary level of consistency.
