"I would definitely recommend Dr Hyans for implant reconstruction surgery." "They knew this was a traumatic event in my life but they had me focus on how wonderful it will all be once the cancer was removed and my breast would be reconstructed...." "I think this was the perfect explanation for how breasts can look after cancer surgery."

35 Soon to Be 36 Year Old Mother of 3 (16,12,9) Having a Mommy Makeover

I met with Dr. Hyans back in May of 2016. He was the 2nd PS on my list. When I first met him he was very kind and warm. I got a good energy and vibe from him. He asked what my goals were and what I wanted to achieve. I wasn't considering getting a breast reduction but he suggested submitting to my insurance for payment which was covered. I felt very Comfortable with him. He completed a thorough exam and set real expectations for me .

Excellent experience - bilateral mastectomy with reconstrcution - Summit, NJ

Beginning with my first consultation following my breast cancer diagnosis through a bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction, I could not have asked for better care. Dr. Hyans was extremely professional, highly skilled and always made me feel comfortable as did his staff throughout my treatment. I would highly recommend him and will always be thankful to Dr. Hyans and his staff.

Wonderful experience during a rough time

I could not have asked for a better Dr., or human being to have taken care of me during my treatment of breast cancer. From the first day my husband and I met Dr. Haynes, we knew I was in good hands. I needed an additional surgery, and he made me feel so comfortable, I went into in with no fears. His staff should be rewarded with kind words also. Every one I met was conscientious, caring,...

Dr Hyans is an expert in his field. I had a double mastectomy on 12/7/16 with immediate implants with excellent results. Dr Hyans and his staff are extremely professional and I would highly recommend and have recommended him to others.

Beautiful results!

Dr. Peter Hyans and staff are not only professional, but also kind and calm. When it was time for facial rejuvenation (after 12 years) there was no doubt that I would again turn to Dr. Hyans. I am fortunate twice to benefit from his artistry.

Best Breast Doctor

Dr. Hyans is amazing with breasts! I came to him with breast implants that had terrible rippling and my left one was higher and off shaped. Dr. Hyans recommend strattice and making my right implant smaller. I would never have thought of these two options and even though I was skeptical I went ahead with the surgery.
