5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

4 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

45 Yr Old... Well Past "Mommy" and Onto "Makeover" - Stratham, NH

Following my consultation with Dr. Zeff I felt informed, comfortable, and confident in his ability. He answered all my questions, was an equally good listener. To update: I am now just over one month post op. My experience with Dr. Zeff and his staff has been nothing short of ideal. Pre surgical appointments were informative, honest and left me feeling confident in my decision to go forward. The surgery itself was successful, with results clearly demonstrating Dr. Zeff's professional and artistic abilities. Post operative appointments have been timely, and helpful in putting me at ease around my recovery. Over all, I'm happy to report that my results are all I hoped for and in no small part because of Dr. Zeff's professionalism, and experience. If you want clear, concise and honest answers...if you want ability, technique an professionalism, then consider Dr. Zeff and his staff as part of your journey to self improvement.

2 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

Would Not Recommend - Portsmouth, NH

I had breast implants put in by dr zeff...my right breast was naturally larger than my left as with most woman...his solution to this was to remove a large chunk of breast tissue from my right breast to even them out instead of filling the implant less...now my breasts are extremely lopsided and my right implant has moved down my chest and looks terrible

3 out of 5 stars Botox

Thanks Doctor's - New Hampshire

I can't rate Dr. Z. I go to the RN who is the injection nurse. I have been going to this office for a few years but feel that she has definitely over diluted for her savings. Very unsure of her honesty after last few visits. They do not get any apps. for 0 cost so I wonder if she is using on self & co-worker. I will remain in ? until I see my old doctor.

3 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck with Lipo of Hips on Tue 3/8/2011 - New Hampshire

Not good for post care and a little rushed through the whole process but he did a very good job on the actual surgery.

Great Results- Dreadfuul Recovery

Although I did not feel a thing during the full face laser, the recovery over a 2 week period was painful. I was house bound for 7 days, and the ozing and crusting were severe. Since I don't tolerate pain meds well, I just had to tough it out. The Dr. and his staff were terrific and supportive, but this procedure is no salon facial. However, for me, the results were definitely worth it, and...

Breast Implants + Liposuctions. Stratham, NH

Dr. Zeff and his professional team are amazing. I've been going to him for the past 10 years. I've had a few procedures completed by Dr. Zeff and the results came out perfect. I had a breast augmentation back in 2005 and another one in 2014. Also, I had liposuction done as well back in May 2016. All procedures performed under the well care of Dr. Zeff and his exceptional staff. I would highly...

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction
