5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Thrilled with my results!

Dr. Seckel was recommended to me by 2 of my friends who had breast augmentations and lifts done by him. He and his staff were welcoming, friendly and super professional right from the start at my initial consultation! My husband and I both felt very comfortable speaking with him about my breast augmentation goals and he was very informative about the surgical process. My surgery was great and...

Dr. Seckel is an extraordinary surgeon

I found them to be totally proffessional. Every member on the team works so hard at putting you at ease and make feel comfortable prior, during and after the procedure. Very advanced techniques they use that made the recovery time very fast with little pain. I recommend Dr. Seckel hands down.

I had an amazing experience

After having two beautiful children suck the life out of my breasts, I wanted my breasts full and perky like they once were. At the first consultation Dr. Seckels bed side manner made me feel very comfortable and even beautiful with my low hanging, uneven breasts. I had full trust with him from the start and I am so happy with my results. My goal was to have upper fullness and be able to...

Great rhinoplasty experience!

I had a great rhinoplasty experience with Dr. Seckel! Everything went smoothly, from arrival at Emerson hospital to my follow up appointments in the office. Emerson was a great, comfortable hospital to have my first surgery in. All of the staff was great and were helpful in answering all my questions to make me as comfortable as they could. During recovery, I had very little pain- it was way...

Amazing experience and results! - Boston, MA

Dr. Seckel was the third or fourth Doctor that I had a breast augmentation consult with. His staff and himself were very informative, welcoming, and took into consideration my wants and needs. He made every step of the process simple and I truly felt like I was well taken care of. I would highly recommend Dr. Seckel and his staff and I could not be happier with my results.

I Am 31 with 2 Children and I Was in Need of a Breast Augmentation - Concord, MA

I just knew after having my 2 children my breast just wasn't the same anymore. After breast feeding both, my breast just had lost their volume, shape and form. I just needed my confidence back. I hated the way my breast looked and knew I had to do something about it so I did. I searched for months and came across Dr. Seckel and Dr. Narasimhan so I did more researched and they stood out to me....

Highly Recommend Dr. Seckel - Simply the Best! - Concord, MA

After consulting with several top board-certified doctors in the Boston area, I am so glad I decided to go with Dr. Seckel. He has an incredible eye for detail and is very experienced at what he does - I felt I could trust him from day one. When I first shared my goals with him, he was upfront about what could be achieved and willing to work with me to make it a reality. I liked that he is...

32 Years Old. Mother of Three. Size a Cup - Concord, MA

This is something I wanted to do for as long as I can remember. I wanted to feel more confident and not self conscious about my breasts. I wanted to buy bathing suits and clothing and have them fit correctly. Wanted my children to see a confident mother with a good body image. So thrilled with my results and the beautiful work that Dr. Seckel did! Brilliant man with such talent!

When to Decide That It's Time To Have Your Breast Implants Removed

Deciding to have your breast implants (prosthesis or device) removed if there is no pressing medical problem is most importantly your individual decision. However it is wise to consult your Plastic Surgeon for advice before making this choice. If you are happy with your enhanced breasts and there are no structural or medical problems, then you do not have to remove them.

Tumescent Laser Liposuction - Less Pain, Quicker Recovery

Most people, no matter how fit and healthy, have areas of extra fat on the body that they do not like. In men it is the waist area, and in women the tummy, hips and thighs.
