5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

23 Yrs Ols 32J, Going for This All Alone- Parents Disapprove!

Great doctor. Straight to the point is he is very knowledgeable. I had a breast reduction with him and I am one week post op and I feel great. Staff are great and really try to help you with any concerns you may have. Already my family and friends are considering breast reductions because large breast run in my family. I am definitely sending them to this doctor if they decide to take the leap.

20 Years Old and Finally Getting a Reduction. Palm Beach Gardens, FL

I have only met with Dr.Lickstein once but he is by far one of the nicest doctors I have ever met....and I've met quite a few in the past couple of years. He explains the process in detail, allows you to ask as many questions as you want and has your best interest at heart. His office staff is also amazing and they make you feel safe while going through such a personal experience. I have my pre-op appointment with him in four days and will then update after that. AFTER SURGERY: This surgeon is truly one of the greatest doctors I have ever met. He made me feel comfortable the moment I met him. Surgery day came, he sat with me and asked how I was feeling, drew my measurements and continued joking with me to keep me calm. When I woke up he came and saw me and even though I was groggy he still tried to speak to me. My surgery was on a Friday, he called me Saturday to see how I was feeling and on Sunday he came to his office to change my bandages and remove my drains. He is truly a great doctor and I would recommend him to anyone. Not to mention that my boobs look fantastic...if I do say so myself!

Smaller Breast..Here I Come!...=) - Palm Beach Gardens, FL

I've always had Big breast since I was in Elementary. I stood out from the rest of the girls. The older I got the Bigger they got. Here I was in the 5th grade with a Big C cup Bra. I felt like Maybe they would stop getting Bigger at some point. That didn't happen. Here I am at the age of 24 and I wear a 42 H Bra. My Height is 5'3 and I feel like My breast are pulling on my back....

Loving my new breasts! - Palm Beach Gardens, FL

Lots of research

DD to C? Worth It - Palm Beach Gardens, FL

They were recommended by multiple friends & doctors. I chose the location because that's where my family & biggest support network is to be able to take care of me during and after surgery. Plus, I figured Palm Beach has a higher rate of plastic surgery than some other areas.

Thankful I chose the most confident and supportive plastic surgeon throughout my ordeal

Dr. Lickstein has been with me throughout my breast cancer diagnosis in 2010. Along the way I've needed ongoing cosmetic procedures and I've always adhered to Dr. Lickstein's and his staff's advice and guidance. Even today we are working together and I thank God I have him and his staff to lean on for treatment recommendations, comfort and support.
