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

I would highly recommend Dr. Cassel. He was able to artfully and successfully renew/repair my look. I had two very uneven and unsightly breasts following prior implant removal due to infection. I underwent two surgeries, one with temporary expander implants and then one for the silicone implants.

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

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

In 1999 I had a colon resection and over time the muscles just kept separating leaving me with a terrible bulge. So on 4-4-12 I had a tummy tuck. Dr. Cassel sewed my muscles back together and I love love the results. I have to say it was not a fun recovery, at least the first month, but worth it in the end. Since Dr. Cassel did such a great job I decided to have a facelift and lower eyelids...

5 out of 5 stars Nose Surgery

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

A large hole was left in the left side of my nose when the cancer was removed by a Dermatologist/Surgeon so repair was definitely needed and Dr. John Cassel was consulted and agreed to perform the surgery. He deftly cut skin from my left cheek and folded it over to cover the hole left by my previous surgery. He then stretched the skin on my cheek to cover the skin moved and stitched it in the...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

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

I was living overseas and was referred to Dr. Cassel for reconstruction surgery by my oncologist after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Obviously, I was emotionally distraught at realizing I had to undergo a double mastectomy, but Dr. Cassel saw me immediately and spent at least 2 hours explaining the various procedures that could be done, including the pros and cons and risks of each one....

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

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

I decided to go forward with a breast augmentation because I lost a considerable amount of breast tissue after both of my children were born, and therefore, lost the natural shape of my breast. I am about 5'9" with a very petite and slender frame. I felt since my breasts were practically nonexistent after my two children were born, that it accentuated my thin frame and left me feeling less...

5 out of 5 stars Neck Lift

Years Better - Miami, FL

I'm 60 years old and was successful in losing a lot of weight. That left me with draping chin and neck skin. Now 5 weeks after the procedure I've been told I look 40-45 years old. Dr. Cassel is kind and thoughtful and an excellent doctor. If you didn't know me before you would never know I had surgery. Adding photos

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Breast Surgery Success - Miami, FL

This surgery was required as a result of a ruptured implant that was installed many years ago.. After an initial examination, Dr. Cassel determined that there were real issues my reconstructed breast as well as the ruptured implant in my normal breast. Both saline implants were replaced with silicone implants and additional work to make both breast look good and to be positioned correctly...

5 out of 5 stars Eye Bags Treatment

m. d. , p. a. - Miami, FL

I needed to dispose of the eye bags due to urgent health reasons. The right side eye one was the worse because the lead and the eye lashes got into the white inside of the eye and scratched it. My eye doctor insisted on me having done the operation so I looked for the best surgery available in Florida.

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

I look completely natural and beautiful - Facelift - Miami, FL

Dr. John Cassel is the finest and most precise plastic surgeon I have ever used. My face lift was painless, my recovery was brief, and most of all, I look completely natural and beautiful. No one knows that I have had plastic surgery but I am constantly complemented on how great I look. Don't even consider any other surgeon!!!! Healing fabulously with absolutely no pain!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

over 15 years ago - Amazing Doctor! - Miami, FL

I choose to have Rhinoplasty and Breast Augmentation, over 15 years ago... I had no tell, tell signs; no scarring; visually and by touch, you could not tell they were enhanced! I raved so much about him that my cousin just had a tummy tuck and breast enhancement with amazing results! She did a picture spread 2months later in a bikini. I am now going to be returning because I have had children...
