"Dr. Ishoo, told me exactly what to expect from the procedure and thats exactly what I got." "When I wanted to cancel, he called me immediately and was so kind and reassuring, however, when I was kicking my feet and in pain, his personality certainly took a different tone...." "After the consult, I felt very comfortable with him and felt reassured of his knowledge and professionalism."

5 out of 5 stars Liposculpture

Liposculpture Armpits to Knees with Fat Injections to the Breast - Massachusetts

Dr. I and his staff take every bit of time needed to answer questions and I never had a moment of him selling himself. He and his staff are discreet, professional and friendly almost to the point where I feel like I know them. When I checked off excellent on every one of the ratings I wished there were a superb rating! They are honest about what they can and cannot do and have "really" been there for me through out my recovery. One of my best friends has just scheduled her procedure for May and I can honestly say I know she is going to look fabulous!

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Liposuction of Thighs w/ Fat Transfer to Breasts - Marshfield, MA

The minimally invasive techniques that Dr. I's office provided made my whole experience feel like a simple office visit. Just as important was his dedication to listen, understand and strive towards the goals I was seeking. His staff was superb and provided great post op care in the weeks following.

Exceeded My Expectections!

Dr. I was my fourth consult for lipo surgery. His office is amazing and it was absolutely clear after the consult that he would be the best choice for me. Dr. I is an extremely skilled surgeon and a very caring physician. His staff handles everything from the intial consult through the post-op checkups with the utmost professionalism. Dr. I and his staff are willing to answer questions and address all concerns and problems completely--no matter how much time it takes.

Great Experience All the Way Through - Boston, MA

My first interaction with Dr. Ishoo started with a Skye consultation (free) for vaser hi def. After speaking with him in length via Skype he answered all of my questions (including the dumb ones) in a way that made me comfortable enough to eventually fly in for my procedure. I should also note I came to him after searching many reviews via other sites as well as a couple phone calls around the industry. He and his staff took great care of me all the way through the procedure and especially during recovery. The staff was tremendous. And while everything going into the procedure, from consultation on, was great, we all know the most important thing is the results, which were awesome. He specifically walked me though what to expect going in and after, and I'm extremely happy with the way it turned out. It was certainly one of the better decisions I've made thus far, one of which I'm very happy with. I'd highly recommend Dr. Ishoo to anyone looking to have a procedure done.

5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Laser

My First Fraxel - Boston, MA

If you are already splurging on beauty and perfection, how could one settles for any surgeon less than the best? I am a very skeptical person, so I did a lot of research before I finally become a patient of Dr. Ishoo. I went to 4 clinics (2 surgeons, 1 dr and 1 spa place). Dr. Ishoo's treatment was the most expensive, but I still decided to go with him. I like Dr. Ishoo , because he doesn't give me any bullshits sales pitch or lofty promises. At my free consultation, he answered questions, gave me a very realistic expectation, informed me of all the risk and then walked away. None of his staff tried to sell me anything, and I really liked that. At other places, I definitely felt different sales pitch. Everyone at this clinic is beautiful, even their clients are gorgeous (hahahahha, myself included, of course! :P). At my first visit, there were 3 other ladies and a guy in the waiting area. They all looked natural. I was really looking forward to see at least 1 "real house-wife" at a plastic surgeon's office, but the clients I met looked normal - as if they had never had anything done. Seeing other patient's at his office was reassuring to me, because who wants to pay $, gets surgery done and looks plastic? CON: I don't think it is easy to become his patient. They have a pretty stringent screening process. At my first visit, I had to answered pages and pages of questions about EVERYTHING (psychological assessment, diet, family history, etc etc). Oh ya, and Dr. Ishoo actually turned me down on a more expensive treatment. He said I'm not a good candidate for Fraxel Re:Pair because of my skin type and my busy schedule. His rejection of my money makes me trust his authority in the field more. :P So obviously since I just got my Fraxel done, I can't tell you much about the outcome.

Simply the Best - Boston, MA

My experience with Dr Ishoo has been wonderful. His staff is genuine, knowledgeable, and caring. I had been to see 4 surgeons before deciding upon Dr Ishoo. I was even thinking of deferring my surgery plans until Spring because I didn't feel comfortable with previous doctors that I had consulted. I decided to go with Dr Ishoo and his team at our first meeting and I have not regretted it! He is a master and is totally committed to helping you achieve the best you! From pre-surgery to after -care and everything in-between, I was taken care of. I am seeing continued improvement and great results. Thank you Dr Ishoo - you gave me the jump-start that I needed to resume a healthy lifestyle. My confidence is back and my body is beginning to match my personality again! I highly recommend Dr Ishoo and his staff!

He Delivers - Boston, MA

I wanted the Best in town and I got it. The results were astonishing and I couldn't be more pleased. Dr.Ishoo and his team have helped me gain the confidence that I denied myself since adolescence. My quality of life has improved drastically and the entire process was extremely simplified. I can't thank Dr. Ishoo, Noemi and the Boston Cosmetic Surgery Center staff enough for their professionalism,care and confidentiality.
