5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

Breast Reconsctruction of Other Proceedures Gone Wrong. He's an Amazing Reconstruction Artist. South Miami, FL

Dr. Cassel has a calming demeanor and was able to help me feel relaxed going into surgery. I had anxiety from prior procedures with other doctors. He didn't over promise results and exceeded my expectations.

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

52 Year Old Female Tummy Tuck and Facelift - Miami, FL

Dr. Cassel is awesome. From the very first consultation I felt very at ease with him, so did my husband. At all of my appointments he answered all of my questions and I never felt rushed. He is very professional, kind, extremely talented and a sweet man. The staff are great they were professional and were very accommodating to my schedule. After each of my procedures I spent the night, this made me feel safe and comfortable as you never know how you will respond after your procedure. It was me and a nurse all night and I received great care. The surgical center is right in their building, no hospital, and it is top of the line, extremely clean and well equipped. I have already recommended Dr. Cassel to a friend for a facelift and she is very excited to met him.

5 out of 5 stars Nose Surgery

Repair of Basal Cell Carcenoma Removal on Left Side of Nose - Miami, FL

Dr. Cassel is very communicative and open; he describes well what his recommended procedure will be. He has many years experience while at the same time being up to date on all recent developments in cosmetic surgery. The outcome of the operation and follow up/touch up procedure was very satisfying. Dr. Cassel did an excellent job and I highly recommend him to any potential patient considering any cosmetic surgery.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Double Mastectomy and TRAM Flap Reconstruction for Breast Cancer - Miami, FL

I cannot provide a cost as it was an insurance procedure and I had several surgeries with different doctors. I can say that Dr. Cassel significantly reduced his fees so I could afford the surgery. Dr. Cassel is very professional but very compassionate and friendly. He explained all the pros and cons and possible side effects or complications that could arise so I could make an informed decision. His workmanship was extremely well executed and I felt I was very lucky to have been referred to him. In my case, Dr. Cassel worked with a team of doctors for whom I owe my life. My scarring is minimal and my body looks normal. I would highly recommend Dr. Cassel.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

31 Years Old with 2 Children Ages 5 and 2 -Coral Gables, FL

Dr. Cassel came highly recommended to me from several of my friends. He could not have been more personable and understanding of my desired results. Not only did Dr. Cassel take such time and care with all my questions and concerns, but his staff was always courteous and knowledgable anytime I called or visited the office. The entire experience was incredibly positive and I couldn't be happier with my results!

5 out of 5 stars Neck Lift

Years Better - Miami, FL

He was kind and thoughtful and above alk else talented.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Breast Surgery Success - Miami, FL

Dr. Cassel was wonderful through as phases of this very trying surgery. He and his staff treated me and my husband with the utmost respect and were extremely caring to us. Dr. Cassel and his team went the extra mile to assist us in the difficult process of working with the government agency that was responsible for providing the funding for this surgery. This entire experience has been extremely good due to Dr. Cassel and his wonderful staff.
