5 out of 5 stars Voluma

Juvederm Voluma and Vollure Facial Fillers

Dr Kopelman is polite, professional, and skilled. I cannot recommend him more highly. Dr. Kopelman solved everything that was bothering me about my face: under eye hollows, jaws and area around my mouth. My face looks 5 years younger. He takes his time with every filler because he is a perfectionist. I live in Europe now where facial fillers are not as acceptable as in the US and doctor Kopelman made sure that I look very natural. Lori from the office was really great and helpful.

5 out of 5 stars UltraShape Power

Amazing experience

I recently had Ultrashape Power done on my abdomen with Dr Kopelman. My results were amazing! I feel much more sculpted! Dr Kopelman and his staff were the kindest and most welcoming group that I have had the pleasure to meet. Dr. Kopelman spent so much time explaining the procedure and what results I can expect. He was very thorough and did not give me any false hopes. I am so glad I...

5 out of 5 stars Voluma

A wonderful Experience

Dr. Kopelman and his staff are extremely professional and welcoming. My experience with Dr. Kopelman and his staff was outstanding. I appreciated all the personal attention Dr Kopelman provided me to help me decide exactly what I needed for a natural look. He is an extremely skilled Doctor both with injecting dermal fillers and botox. I found that he did not push any services and wanted...

5 out of 5 stars Restylane Silk

Outstanding Doctor

It's hard to write a review in so few words when it comes to Dr. Kopelman. I've been to many Plastic Surgeons and Dermatologists in NYC (big names) who never provided me with the personal attention and warmth that Dr. Kopelman did today. He is the kindest and most attentive doctor I've ever met. However, most importantly, his skill in injecting dermal fillers was truly impressive. He used...

5 out of 5 stars UltraShape

46, in Shape Except for Stubborn Belly Fat - Ridgewood, NJ

Dr. Kopelman did my consult with the nurse Kristine who performed the procedure. They were very nice and informative, as were all the staff in the office. its obvious Dr Kopelman wants his patients to get the best results they can. They hydrate with an IV bag during the procedure, and did target areas and layers to ensure the most complete results. The procedure itself was pretty much painless, except when the transducer hit some of my recent scars from a laproscopic surgery, but it was more like a momentary stinging. Kristine was very infornative explaining how everythinh worked and wat she was doing as she was doing it.

5 out of 5 stars Voluma

Needed a Lift in my Aging Face - Ridgewood, NJ

Dr. K spent a lot of time explaining the different options available to give my saggy cheeks a boost. I had 1/2 vial of Juviderm left from a previous visit. He expertly placed this filler in and around my lips to reduce those lines. Am I perfect looking? By no means, but I still want to look like me, not like I've had too much "work" done. Dr. K knows when to stop. That's important to me.

Mid-UltraShaping - Ridgewood, NJ

Pleasant, honest and attentive. Very concerned with my comfort and patiently explained the procedure, while happily answering all my questions.

5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Laser

Anonymous Older Patient - Ridgewood, NJ

Pleasant manner. Very careful. I felt cared for and about. Gave suggestions but always listened to my concerns.

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Very Happy!

I am not one who takes the time to write reviews, good or bad, but then I felt a difference I thought I should share. I visited an office in Ridgewood, NJ for a cosmetic procedure I’d been hemming and hawing to get. At first glance, I was greeted by Lori at the front desk and an made an immediate connection, maybe it was her smile or her style I’m not really sure, but I liked her right awa...
