5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

The Only Surgeon to Consider for a Breast Augmentation - Boston, MA

There is no one else I would recommend for a breast augmentation. Dr. Seckel, and his office staff, were friendly, professional and non-pressuring. I'm 5'7", 140 lbs and was previously a 34A. Went with 350 ccs (Dr. Seckel recommended 325-350), and could not be happier with my results. I'm now a full C-cup. Everyone says they look like they always belonged on my body. The surgery and recovery...

Could not be happier with my results and experience!

I decided to get a Rhinoplasty about 6 months before I had my procedure. A childhood break left my nose with unsightly bumps and a rather severe deviated septum that left my breathing impaired. Despite the fact I work in the healthcare field, without any research, I scheduled a consultation and procedure with a well-known surgeon at one of the large Boston academic medical centers. My...

29 Years Old - 400cc HP Silicone

I was looking for surgeons in the Boston area and stumbled across many positive reviews of Dr. Seckel which is what made me schedule my consultation as well as his many years of experience. After meeting him I knew he was the one! Any questions I had prior to surgery were answered in a very timely manner via email which made me feel at ease. The staff was also very helpful and friendly and the medical staff at Emerson Hospital were phenomenal. I would highly recommend!

Could not have imagined a better experience!!!!

I learned of Dr. Seckel through a friend, I admired her breast augmentation and started asking questions. I've wanted a BA since before I could remember and finally got the courage to start the process. My friend boasted about her experience and her breasts looked really natural so I had to look him up. His office, Boston Plastic Surgery Associates offers FREE consultations, which had me at...

My experience was everything I hoped it would be!

I found Dr. Seckel through a friend-of-a-friend. I really liked the natural look of her breast augmentation so I asked her about her experience. She boasted about Dr. Seckel and how she had an amazing experience and didn't regret a thing. I couldn't help but seek this doctor out. I had wanted a breast augmentation for as long as I could remember and finally got the courage to look into it....

Amazing rhinoplasty experience

Couldn't have imagined a greater experience with Dr. Seckel. From our initial meeting to my post-op follow-up appointments, Dr. Seckel and his staff were extremely professional and trustworthy. Once I made the decision to schedule surgery, Dr. Seckel made me feel at ease. Getting a nose job was something I had always thought about, but didn't start seriously considering until this year. I...

27 Yr Old 5'6" 140 Lbs 325cc Breast Augmentation - Boston, MA

Dr. Seckel has 35+ years of experience and that is one of the reasons I choose him. From my consultation to my 2 week post-op follow up he was very professional and made me feel comfortable. I'm glad I choose him because he listens to your goals and selects the best aesthetic look during surgery. This was my first elective surgery and I highly recommend Dr. Seckel who performed a breast augmentation under the muscle via IMF. I went from a 32B to a 32 full C with 325CC moderate plus profile silicone implants. Dr. Seckel was responsive to all my questions and addressed them in a timely manner. I was able to communicate via email and phone. For my consultation I was considering 325/350cc. During the procedure 325cc was selected as the best suited and aesthetically appealing. Its great to know that Dr. Seckel picked a size appropriate for my 5'6" athletic build as 350cc was to tight with my skin. The staff was wonderful and the procedure went smoothly. I am about 3 weeks post-op and I have already been able to do light cardio. The incision line is perfectly placed and I have been using ScarGuard MD. I'm very pleased with the implants and overall experience.

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.

The Recovery Timeline to Recover From Breast Augmentation with Breast Implants

If you are considering breast implants you need to understand the timeline for your recovery. All too often doctors minimize the recovery period following this elective cosmetic surgery procedure. If you want the best result and you want to avoid problems and complications, you need a realistic and safe idea of what your recovery period will be like. Below i have tried to give you a realistic conservative safe estimate of what you should expect. Please do not expect to go back to work the...

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. There is a great deal of confusion about the timing of this surgery because of the FDA guidelines written a...

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. Many of us have often thought that it would be nice to have liposuction to remove the excess fat and start over again by watching our diet and exercising. However traditional old time liposuction is a traumatic surgical procedure which is painful and with a prolonged recovery. Worse, a large percentage of people who have...
