Dr. Ladocsi is the best! After being diagnosed with breast cancer in November 2011, my husband, myself, and our breast cancer surgeon decided that I would undergo a mastectomy with breast reconstruction. Dr. Ladocsi was highly recommended to perform the reconstruction and we chose him. On our first visit with Dr. Ladocsi, we knew we had made the right decision for my plastic surgeon. He was just so kind and caring on that first visit and all visits after. The surgery and reconstruction went very well. Since that surgery went so well, I chose Dr. Ladocsi to do a mid-facelift as well as a neck lift. He was so very wonderful about explaining what would be done, answering all the questions we had. This surgery also went very well and I am so pleased with the results. I would, and have, recommended Dr. Ladocsi to friends who are thinking of getting cosmetic surgery, as well as one friend who is currently undergoing breast cancer treatment and will need a plastic surgeon to perform her breast reconstruction surgery. Dr. Ladocsi is the best. His best qualities are his compassion, caring attitude, attentiveness, and his straightforward technique of explaining everything about the surgery and what to expect post-surgery. We absolutely love him, his staff, and the work he has done for me.

In 2008, I found myself fast approaching 420 pounds in a continued decade-long struggle with my weight. I was very unhealthy, with a list of co-morbidities that would most likely have resulted in an early exit for me. I knew I needed to change something to be around for my family and decided to have the gastric bypass. The surgery was a success and over the course of 14 months I lost 240 lbs and dropped from a 56 waist to a 36 waist...20 inches!!! Nearly 5 years later I was successful in changing my habits and lifestyle and was able to keep the weight off where so many others had failed. The by product of such massive weight loss was the amount of skin hanging from my stomach. I decided that I needed to explore surgery to remove the skin and fix my abdomen and improve the way my clothes fit. The first surgeon I approached spent 5 minutes with me, told me what I needed and walked out the room. No questions. No discussion. No information other then the surgery he felt I needed. It felt cold and impersonal; almost as if talking to me was an inconvenience to his schedule. That did not set well with me and I decided to seek a second opinion. I then found Dr. Lewis Ladocsi. What a completely different experience from the first doctor! Dr. Ladocsi started by asking about me, my weight loss success, how I had been successful in keeping the weight off, and the overall impact it had on my life. When we discussed the reason for my visit he asked a lot of questions regarding what I was looking for in a surgical result, how much time I was willing to invest in recovery, and what I had in mind as a starting point. Once he understood my story, he began to give me options around procedures, techniques, and answered my multitude of questions around each of those two topics. His warm unassuming manner made me feel very comfortable and right at home. Dr. Ladocsi never pressured me to make a decision but rather gave me options to consider and make my own informed decision. On the day of the surgery he came in after I was prepped to make sure I understood exactly what I was getting ready to do and what I could expect in detail after the surgery as well as assure me that he would be one phone call away when I woke up and got home and began the healing process. The results are fantastic!!! The surgery and subsequent healing have gone exactly as he said and I found the follow up to be refreshing in that I wasn't treated like a post surgery afterthought; but rather just as important as the day I came in for the consult. If you are looking for a surgeon who cares, is invested, and desires to set the bar for excellence not only in surgical results and outcome but also in patient care and interaction...look no further then Dr. Ladocsi.

dr ladocsi went over the procedure with me in detail even to the point of what I would be wearing when I went home...which was a spandex garment to help hold everything in place I did have two drain tubes one from each side...did experience alot of bleeding during the even..I was sent home with a nurse who called the doctor immediately when she saw all the bleeding going on...they walked her through what need to be done...it did stop and tubes were removed several days later
