Are you a patient of Michael Salzhauer, MD?
Reasons why I chose Dr. Salzhauer: TECHNIQUE: After lots of consulting (My top 3 were Miendetta, Salama, Campos...I even considered Dr. J in Atlanta but after seeing his shady website I threw that option out the window...presentation and 1st impressions are everything with cosmetic surgery!). I decided on Dr. Salzhauer after I had my first FREE SKYPE consultation. He along with a few surgeons have refined their techniques so that you can maintain as much of the fat graft as possible and not have to use drains which make recovery way more comfortable. That was huge for me because I am coming from cali and i don't want to worry about drains and possible seromas. Dr. Miendetta also has a great technique and also makes incisions withing the "fault Line" resulting in less scars but it has a higher risk of infection. And he quoted me $14,000. vs Dr. S who charged me a special of $7,500.00 and threw in lipo to the thighs and arms! which leads me to reason 2: 2. Price! As I mentioned before I have had Lipo already so most surgeons charged more close to double the price of whatever specials they listed on their websites...not the case with Dr. S! He even threw in arms and thighs which showed me how much he wanted me to acheive the look I desired. 3. Reputation: He was voted best P.S in Miami for a reason and this is Miami we are talking about land of models and beautiful ppl. There are so many great surgeons in this area due to high demand and the fact that he is considered the best speaks volumes!* He also created isurgeon which is a really cool app and he is the creator of the wundertape butt lifting tape. When you book with him he sends you a free sample and I used it right away...it was tricky at first so you hve to use it about 2-3 times to get the hang of it but it is sooo cool! I'll put pics when i get my new set of tapes.* 4. Professionalism: His website is amazinf you can even chat with someone and he has video testimonials and a really great presentation. This is great but anyone can make a great website, right? Well the website was great but what was really great was the followup and communication from his staff. I got an email from Arianny the next day after I made my intial inquiry and she set me up with a skype consult for the following week and answered all my questions leading up to the consult. she told me the price right after I responded to her first email. Once I put my deposit down I was contacted by Ruth my medical clearance coordinator who had great energy and also from Jovanna. I also just received my welcome package which is so professional and personalized with the hard copied of your medical clearnaces forms and Dr.'s letter. *I did have to wait a few days for a response to my last emails but I'm sure if I would've called they would have answered my questions right away. It's a little inconvenient for out of towners to call in though because of the time difference but they evetually respond within a few days)* There were planty of other reasons but these were the main resons for my choice. I can't wait and will keep everyone posted.

I got a Brazilian butt lift with Dr. Salzhauer at Ball Harbour plastic surgery and I am so grateful that I made the decision to go there..... The staff answered every single question that I had an trust me I had a lot and they made me feel so comfortable and at ease that I had no worries and was excited to get The procedure done.. The day of surgery Dr. S asked me what I wanted and i said i wanted a JLo booty and he wrote that on My back....lol... He also noticed that I may need more fat for the results that I wanted so he decided to take from my arms also at no cost!... After my surgery because I didn't get much sleep the night before (they tell you to get plenty of sleep but I'm hard headed) it took me a lot longer to wake up after surgery..... But not once did my nurse Mariam rush me to wake up she actually encouraged me to get as much sleep as possible and take my time in the recovery room... she was so nurturing and motherly and at that moment I really appreciated it.... After my procedure I was staying at a local hotel and Miriam came to check on me and to help me change my garment after two days.... After seven days I went in to get my stitches removed and yeni and Dr. Salzhauer we're really great with me I was still a bit swollen and was still a little skeptical about my results but they both reassured me and told me that my results will take a little time due to my recovery and I will definitely see a difference within the upcoming months.....Yeni continued to call me on a weekly basis and check up on with me for about four months ( afterwards about every month) after my procedure and I was still a little concerned after two months of my procedure and she constantly reassured me and told me that eventually everything will settle and I will definitely see results..,,, boy was she right!!!!!! I have never been happier with my body.,,,,, my confidence has skyrocketed and I am so grateful and happy that I had decided to go to see Dr. salzhauer.... I Love my results and it's been a year and a half and I feel like my results are getting better as time progresses..... Dr. Salzhauer and his staff was amazing!!! They were super friendly and helpful. They were great and would recommend them to anyone!!

Dr. Salzhauer and his staff were truly amazing. They sent a nurse out to visit me my first day post op and every day for the next 2 weeks I received a phone call to check on my progress and to see if I had any questions or concerns. I live 2 hours away from Miami and am now back to work so I am not able to drive for visits during the week. Dr. Salzhauer comes in on a Sunday to do my post op visits, I think that is a dedicated surgeon and makes me even more confident that I chose the right Dr for me.

Dr. Salzhauer runs a great practice... I did many consultations and research before choosing him. I chose him simply bc I trusted him and his staff with my life. Of course he does great work but what good will it be if something happened to me. I felt at ease with him. I knew I could expect my desired results as well as professionalism. My experience was overall great. In the beginning Ari was my PC and stayed on top of things and answered all my questions. She returned emails and calls very promptly. Tati handled my medical clearance and did great. Taylor was very helpful in getting my meds ready and uber credit. She returned messages super fast. Barry the anesthesiologist was super nice and made me comfortable and being that I woke up means he did his job. Ingred was beyond accommodating. I can't stress how much care she provided right after surgery. I woke up scared bc I was shaking so much and was in pain and she was so attentive. Yeilin came to the hotel the day after and she was amazing and provided great care. She was extremely patience. There were a couple times we called the hot line and nobody answered but when after we texted and got a response. No big deal. I can't think of who assisted me during my post op visit but she was great too bc she answered all my questions and was extremely helpful. Overall everyone did a superb job. You can't go wrong with a great doctor and great staff. After this experience I would never go anywhere else but to Dr.Salzhauer.
Dr. Michael Salzhauer is such an amazing human being. Truly an artist. I had my rhinoplasty and breast augmentation done with him. I was extremely nervous in the beginning but he has a way to make you feel so calm and really trust him. He doesn't treat you like you're just a number, he really takes his time to answer any questions and give any explanation and to me that's extremely important. Both my procedures came out amazing. I always get compliments. I absolutely love my nose and my breast augmentation. He really exceeded my expectations. I always recommend him to all my friends or anyone who's looking to get any work done. He is the best.

I found Dr Salzhauer through my friends. Words cannot express the gratitude felt in my heart and should for your kindness, compassion and generosity. Thank you for giving me my “life” back. You have made me feel like a new person. I want to say “Thank you” so much for being you, you’re the most generous, caring and listening plastic surgeon. I am so glad that GOD chose you to save my life and change it. Choosing to have my breast done has been a long and scary process for me; it has actually been a two years process, being the most stressful. I was really scared, I was a victim of bad surgery with a BAD Surgeon, but you Dr. Salzhauer save my life and gave me sense to my life, made me feel so comfortable, and so safe. I have to tell you Dr. Salzhauer the job you did on me has surpassed my highest expectations, and I am so happy with the outcome. Your care and listening skills are to be commended, as is your staff. Thank you so so much.

My experience with having Dr. Michael Salzhauer as my plastic surgeon was spectacular. His professionalism, bed side manner and personality immediately put you at ease. His work on sculpting my body (brazilian butt lift and breast augmentation) resulted in amazing, natural results that I could only dream of. His staff is also very welcoming - from the moment you walk in the door. After your procedure, the doctor himself calls to check up on your wellbeing with the staff making follow up calls to make sure you're following doctor's orders and healing in track. Best experience, I am thinking of what other procedure I can have next!

I have no idea how Dr. Salzhauer did a remarkable job, but he did. The man is a genius. He’s not just a doctor, he’s an artist. You can’t even tell that anything was every wrong – there really isn’t any scarring or anything! I am truly a result is a wonderful and caring doctor who is exceptionally skilled and honestly enjoys his work. I have every confidence in Dr. Salzhauer and his staff and would recommend Bal Harbour Plastic Surgery without a second thought.

Dr. S and the entire staff was so wonderful. He answered all my questions and showed me many pictures of other patients he did. The pictures sold me. The staff was so supportive- calling me all the time and they even visited me at my house the day after my surgery so I didn't have to drive to the office. Everything about my experience was great.

Three years ago i was blessed with twins who really wrecked my belly (but would never change it for the world) And then another beautiful baby 8 months ago which left my belly and breast really wrecked. So I decided to have a tummy tuck with muscle repair and breast augmentation. My operation was 6 days ago and I had an amazing experience, never really had any pain just uncomfortable...
