5 out of 5 stars Neck Lift

58, 30 Years Old Silicone Explant with Mastopexy, and Neck Lift - Pasadena, CA

A reconstructive surgeon referred me to Dr Max Lehfeldt, a Board Certified plastic surgeon who also specializes in reconstruction surgery for cancer patients and traumatic injuries. Born in Colorado, Dr Lehfeldt graduated from Yale University with majors in biochemistry/molecular biophysics; USC Keck School of Medicine; and completed general surgery and plastic surgery residency at USC. Dr Lehfeldt has the right credentials as well as old school charm with up to date technical skills. Well educated, talented, dedicated and a lovely person. The office staff are kind patient and helpful. Very good experience.

1 out of 5 stars Kybella

I Regret Having Kybella- 50 Year Old - Pasadena, CA

I think Dr. Lehfeldt is an excellent surgeon, but maybe I was of the 1% of patients that don't respond well to Kybella.

5 out of 5 stars Cellulaze

The Only Thing That Really Worked - Pasadena, CA

My doctor and his staff were great. He was a little expensive, however, he has lots of great experience, great reviews, and he is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. With this procedure I felt it was important to pay more for his experience. The girls in the office were great. Warm and professional all around. I had an issue with some swelling and he even answered the phone and helped me over the holiday weekend.
