1 out of 5 stars Lifestyle Lift


Terrible I would not recommend him He did a lifestyle lift for me and left me with awful scars on the side of my face and behind my ears. He told me the scar would run along the curve of my ear and it looks like he just cut a square around my ear I feel like he either doesn't know what he's doing or he doesn't care

I'm Me Again!

Dr.Shektman is a great surgeon! He made sure he explained everything he was doing while in surgery so that I knew what to expect and not freak out, he's very professional and not only that but his staff is amazing! I can say that Dr.Shektman team is one of a kind, I've been in the office twice and I feel like their family! Can't be more happy with my experience with Dr.Shektman!

Amazing experience

I highly recommend Dr. Shetman! He performed my breast implant removal. His bedside manner was the best. He was very understanding, and very professional. His entire staff was amazing and made me feel comfortable. He doesn't overbook his appointments, and always saw me on time. I never had to wait more than a few minutes. I can't recommend him enough, I'm so very glad I chose him as my surgeon.

I Couldn't Be Happier! Thanks So Much - Woburn, MA

Dr. Shektman did a beautiful neck procedure on me! Jen, Kim ,Marc were the nicest and extremely kind and professional. I love my results and my friends keep staring at me and cannot figure out why I look so good. Someone asked me if I lost weight, got a haircut or just came back from vacation. I couldn't be happier! Thanks so much.

Always Wanted a Flat Stomach. Wellesley, MA

Dr Shektman is very professional and pleasant to talk to. He is focused on the best possible result that you and he can achieve together. His manner is understated but he is very kind and has no problem answering any questions you might have.

51 5'3" 128lb. Mother of 4 Breast Fed Children. Years and Years of Ups and Down Struggles with my Weight - Wellesley Hills, MA

Dr. Shektamans entire staff was extremely warm, welcoming, confident and very professional! I went in feeling a little anxious and nervous.... (its surgery)! From start to finish they were wonderful! The only name I can remember is Diane's, his Patient / Coordinator. She was awesome! My daughter was with me and Diane was great at communicating all of my post surgical needs to her. She gave her directions to the nearest drug store and gave her some ideas for things to do in the area while I was in surgery. My appointment was at 9:30 am. I got into surgery around 10 and I was at home (we live about 45 minutes from the office) resting comfortably on my couch by 1. I highly recommend Dr. Shektaman to anyone in the considering a cosmetic procedure.

Implant Removal After Bad Contracture - Wellesley, MA

Dr. Shektman removed my implants and I think he did a great job. In 2011 I got silicone unders and enjoyed my implants until I had my second child in 2013 and noticed that my right breast was no longer as soft after trying to breast feed. After my third child in 2014 the contracture on my right worsened significantly and my right breast started to fee like I had an apple inside. It was...

Love my new boobies!! - Wellesley Hills, MA

So I finally did it. I booked my surgery for April 2nd. It's only about a month away! I left my consultation feeling nervous, excited, and anxious. I'm currently a 34B and hope to be a full C after the surgery. The doctor said that because I already have a good amount of breast tissue naturally that I would not require a large implant. I chose saline because I feel more comfortable than with...

Breast Implant Removal Scheduled - Massachusetts

My journey is just beginning. I have made the decision to have my breast implants removed after having them for 18years. I know it is going to be a difficult adjustment but I believe I am ready. I am having problems with the left breast and do not want to have to go through this again. That is one of the main reasons for not replacing. I can't say I regret having them done because I have...
