5 out of 5 stars Lip Augmentation

Dr. Doherty is the best at what he does

My experience with Dr. Doherty was wonderful. I went to Dr. Doherty after having a bad experience with another doctor who did fillers for me. I made sure to do some research this time around and that is how I found Dr. Doherty. Dr. Dorherty is a genius when it comes to the face. He understands what the client wants and helps them to understand what is actually achievable. I went to Dr....

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

I had a very successful and happy experience

My experience with Dr. Doherty and his office staff was phenomenal. I had a tummy tuck and liposuction of the love handles and I am so very pleased with the results. Dr. Doherty's personality is very open and caring. His advice on the best approach to obtain my desired results was spot on. He takes great pride in his work and it shows in the results of my procedures for which I am very...

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

My hourglass figure is back!! Amazing results.

Wonderful experience start to finish! Dr Doherty and his nurse Nancy are professional, thorough and easy to talk to. I genuinely enjoyed my time with them. Dr Doherty performed lipo on my abdomen and flanks. The procedure was not too painful, and the recovery was quick. I just had my 4 week follow up and am in awe of my progress. My "muffin top" is gone, stomach is flat again and all of my...

5 out of 5 stars Liposculpture

Best Choice

I had such a positive experience with Dr. Doherty. I was a little scared about the procedure and this was my first time doing anything like this, but he made me feel so comfortable. I wanted to get rid of my belly and no matter how much I dieted or worked out I could not get rid of it. I am now 2 months after the procedure and could not be happier. I am in my early 60's and my recovery has...

5 out of 5 stars Tumescent Liposuction

Great experience with Dr. Doherty

After reading positive reviews I scheduled a consult with Dr. Doherty and chose him to be my surgeon. I'm very glad I did! Three weeks ago I had tumescent lipo under local anesthesia on my abs, flanks, and bra roll. I'm very pleased with the results, which were immediately evident (despite the expected swelling and bruising). Dr. Doherty is professional yet down to earth. I felt comfortable...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

Look no further than this doctor, he is the best!

What can I say that others have not already? Dr Doherty and his staff are not only top notch professionals, they are a truly compassionate, caring, and a knowledgable team of individuals who understand, explain and empathize with a patient with what he or she is going through. They instill trust and relieve anxiety throughout the experience by explaining each and every part of what you...

5 out of 5 stars Male Breast Reduction

24 Years Old - Boston, MA

I have been researching and dreaming of this surgery for years! Living with gynecomastia is a traumatizing experience and I was very eagar to get rid of it as soon as possible. The biggest issue for me was money. I was desperate and started looking for cheap surgeries. I started looking overseas at sketchy surgeons. Once my parents noticed my desperation they decided that they would give me a...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Should Have Done It Sooner!!! Boston, MA

I honestly can't praise Dr. Doherty enough. He is so kind and understanding, just an overall compassionate person! I feel so lucky to have met him and have him be the one to make me feel more complete in my own body! I hope this helps anyone thinking about getting a breast augmentation and considering Dr. Doherty as their surgeon. You won't meet someone who cares more about you and your wellbeing than him and his staff. His secretary Robin is also just as wonderful and will help you with any questions you might have too.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Best Decision I Ever Made - Boston, MA

Dr. Doherty is extremely attentive, he listens, and cares about his patients. His talent truly speaks for itself.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

45 Year Old Mother of 3 - Personal Trainer & Nutrition Coach - Concord, MA

I absolutely adore Dr. Sean Doherty. He's warm and puts you completely at ease with the whole procedure. Taking that jonny off at the consultation was nerve racking for me. I was embarrassed by my saggy breasts. He is so professional and positive, my feelings of insecurity about all of it were gone almost immediately. He's a thoughtful listener and is honest and realistic about expectations. His bedside manner is top notch. I can't say enough about him. I would recommend him to anyone - and actually already have. I will have to find more things to tweak just to keep visiting him.

Personal Statement

Aesthetic surgery can do as much for self-image as well as for appearance. Refinements from cosmetic surgery often produce positive changes in self awareness and attitude that can be perceived and appreciated by you and those around you. My goal is to produce subtle but exciting changes.
