I Love My New Breasts - Linden, NJ

Two friends of mine had gone to him for breast augmentation, and they were very happy with their results. I liked his work on his website and his facebook page, and I felt comfortable immediately after meeting him. Two friends on mine recommended Dr. Alkon for breast augmentation - I had met with a couple of other plastic surgeons - but I felt the most comfortable with Dr Alkon. He spent a lot of time explaining the procedure to me and what to expect, and was never rushed. He was always available before and after surgery, and he did an awesome job. Everyone compliments my results. His staff is amazing, super friendly and knowledgeable, and his prices were very reasonable. I am so happy that I went with my friends recommendation, and would recommend him to anyone.

Almost 3 Months PO - New Pics - TT/Lipo of Flanks/BL/BA/Hernia Repair - Elizabeth, NJ

Found Dr. Alkon online. Didn't have any friends or family to offer suggestions since nobody else had plastic surgery he's the chief of plastics at the hospital he works out of, so I trusted his talent and he really made me feel comfortable during the consult. So far, he has been fabulous! Takes plenty of time to answer questions and explained everything. Healing well and so far everything looks like I will have amazing results! Post-op appointments he has been wonderful & very caring. He's just a great doctor all around.

I found Dr. Alkon on-line. I've consulted with two other PS previously and I am very comfortable with Dr. Alkon....his prices were a big appeal to me, but it was is patience and understanding that played a major factor in my choosing him. I've done a lot of research on Dr. Alkon. I've read about some of his patients and I am very impressed with the before and after photos.
