5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Treated Like Family! - San Diego, CA

I had a mommy make over by Dr. Hess, it involved a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, peri-areolar lift and lipo of my sides and back. I want to say that I couldn't be happier with my choice in a plastic surgon. Dr. Hess and his staff have always be extremely sweet and understanding through the entire process and I have so much comfort in knowing that if I have any concerns at all he's available anytime. I went to other PS to before my surgery and I felt like I was in a car dealership and the doctors were fast talking and trying to wheel and deal me.....I didn't like it at all! With Dr. Hess you will never be pressured or convinced you need something else done. The one thing you can count on if you are his patient is you will be treated like a person with feelings and not like a walking check book. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Hess, once you go in for your consult odds are our going to know he's the doctor for you!

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Genuine, Nice Doctor - San Diego, CA

I referred my sister and a couple of close friends to Dr. H because I trust him and know they are in good hands. My sister has gotten Botox done and two of my friends have had boob jobs. Another friend of mine had a "mommy make-over" by Dr. H about a year ago. She looks so good. Her cousin is a surgical assistant for a different plastic surgeon in Southern California and said she had never seen a tummy tuck result as good as this. She probably sees a lot of patients, so I think this says a lot about Dr. H's work. Dr. H is so nice and has never pushed me to do any other procedures. I am considering getting my eyes done soon, but Dr. H said to wait a couple of years. As soon as he thinks I am ready, I will have this procedure done by him, without question. I took the time to write this about Dr. H to let others know he a great doctor that cares for his patients. It is rare to find a genuine doctor these days, so I feel lucky. Thank you Dr. H for your time and always answering my random medical questions through text messages. LOL. I appreciate all you have done for my family and friends. I will continue to refer people to you. Thank you again.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

10 Long Years of Reconstruction Surgery - San Diego, CA

I am a breast cancer survivor who waited 5 years before starting reconstruction. That was over 10 years ago. Although my plastic surgeon of many years was good, for some reason he had a difficult time reaching symmetry between my reconstructed breast and my real breast. After my insurance changed, eliminating my plastic surgeon, I went to Dr. Hess asking for a breast reduction of my real...

Great Guy Awesome Job (Hand Surgery) - San Diego, CA

Just a cool guy thats a doctor. Not sure when he ever stops working. Was at my bedside after 8pm each day then did surgery ay 8pm. Did a great job could not be happier. Every attentive to my pain and always responded to my phone calls(called back within 30min) I would recomend him to anyone. Not stuck up like some doctors. Very down to earth.
