5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Beyond my Wildest Dreams - North Miami Beach, FL

I researched long and hard to find a surgeon for my breast lift and augmentation. When I saw how consistent Dr. Hochsteins results were I booked a consult. I was so impressed that I took the leap of faith and booked my appt. Long story short my results are flawless and I thank dr. Hochstein and his amazing staff.

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

1 Year PostOp: Healed and Happy

On 1/15/13 I had facial surgery for my upper/lower eyelids in addition to rhinoplasty. I am very happy with the results and will say that facial surgery is not that painful and heals quickly. The first few days I looked like I lost a fight, but my face really looked way worse than it actually felt. My PS also did a chemical peel under my eyes and this is slowly healing. The chemical peel...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Two weeks? Feels like 4!- Miami, FL

Hi all! Can we just stop and take a second to say how amazing this website is!? After years of wanting a BA and months of prowling around on here - my time has finally come to share my experience now that I'm finalizing my surgery details! To share a little but about me... I'm a 20 year old yoga instructor who's boobs never really came in. I'm 5'4, 115 and what I consider to be a 34A minus....

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Wonderful - Coral Springs, FL

Had too much fat around the belly and love handles, now it's all gone. I finally have a decent figure. Note that you will swell up ALOT at the beginning which can freak anybody out but once the swelling is gone you will see the results. The skin tends to stay loose around the area (at least for me) but I had mine done 5 months ago and I am using creams, walking, exercising so I am...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Almost a Flat Belly - Coral Springs, FL

I had a lot of excess skin due to 3 pregnancies and my whole mid section filled with stretch marks. During the tummy tuck about 60-70% of the stretch marks were removed (I still have from my pubic line to just under my belly button, before they went up to under my breast!). The Dr. also lipo'd my waist and love handles and I am very satisfied with my new figure! I had the procedure...

Should've Done Them Earlier - Coral Springs, FL

Breast look very natural. Now I can wear blouses and shirts that I couldn't wear in the past! Went from B to full C but I definitely could have gone for a small D, although everyone says the size is perfect for my frame. I had silicone implanted through the areola. The scar is minimal even after 4 months post procedure. My husband was totally against it but now he's crazy about...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Recent Revision, BL and Reduction...and I'm Happy! - Miami, FL

Great experience at Dr. H's office. I'm very happy with my result and the price was great. I could have gone almost anywhere and I chose to go to Miami for my surgery. As you can see from my "before" picture, I needed serious help. The consult and surgery was seamless. I would choose him again. I went from saline, 32DD breasts to silicone 32 C/D breasts. I had my surgery...

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Full lift and Silicon implants..Miami, FL

I have only met with one plastic surgeon so far (even though it's the one that I feel is the one). I've researched doctors off and on for a few years. This doctor is in Miami- hours away from where I live. I am also interested in Soto in Orlando, and Diaco in Tampa, but both of those are about 2 hours from me, and I think would end up being more inconvenient than Miami (since my family...

Things to Know When Picking Out Breast Implants Sizes

Picking out implant sizes for a breast augmentation can be a bit trying for most people. There are people that believe the doctor should pick their sizes however, it can lead to an unhappy outcome for the patient although he/she may be a doctor this is still just one persons option. There are doctors that prefer smaller implants and will push for a more natural conservative look when a patient desires for a much larger sexier appearance and vice versa. What you are looking for in a doctor is...

Plastic Surgery Prices

The economic recession that has plagued the country and the world for over a year has had a significant impact on plastic surgery and how it is practiced in the Miami and Ft. Lauderdale area. In response to the current situation we have decided to lower our prices to make surgery more affordable to our patients while maintaining the safest environment to perform the best work possible. We are committed to not cut any corners on providing the safest environment and quality of care...

Saline vs. Silicone Breast Implants

In recent years there has been some debate as to which breast implants are better and what kind of maintenance or replacement is necessary. The FDA ruling to allow the use of silicone again has certainly raised the popularity of these implants and I have seen a greater demand in my own practice in Miami. So what are the differences? Breast implants are composed of a shell and a filling. The shell consists of solid silicone. In saline filled implants there is a valve through which saline is...

Do Not Let Your Surgeon Pick Your Desired Size

This has been interesting reading for me as I am a plastic surgeon who specializes in BA. I perform about 450 such procedures annually. Let me tell you what I have learned. The best way to choose your implant is to forget about cc’s. Let the surgeon do that…it’s his job. What you should do is be able to communicate the look you are trying to achieve and often pictures of other people is a good place to start. There have been many times when a patient has told me they wanted to be a...
