5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

25 Yrs Old Most AMAZING Boob Job I've Ever Seen - Albany, NY

Dr. Hargrave was extremely easy to talk to and made me feel very at ease about everything. I was a little nervous about seeing a male doctor but it wasn't awkward at all and I couldn't be happier with my decision to use him as my plastic surgeon. He is extremely professional and very very smart. He called me the very next day to check in on me and to see how I was recovering which I didn't expect, but it just goes to show how much he cares about each and every patient. I could go on for hours talking about how incredible of a plastic surgeon he is, if you don't believe me just look at him other before and after pictures or look at the picture of my new fabulous boobs!

5 out of 5 stars Mentor Breast Implants

Great Experience - 275cc Silicone Breast Implants - Albany, NY

Dr. Hargrave was very professional and made me very comfortable throughout the entire process. I went to numerous consultations with other doctors that were cheaper, but I chose Dr. Hargrave to do my surgery because of his expertise and demeanor. I am very happy with the outcome of my breast implant procedure. He was very knowledgeable and was able to provide recommendations based off his many years of experience. I was looking to to get a very natural look for my frame, and was leaning toward a very small implant. Dr. Hargrave advised me that the size I was thinking of getting would end up being much smaller than the outcome I desired. He was able to recommend the perfect size for my frame, and I couldn't be happier with my outcome. I am now a little over 2 months post op. I was nervous when I first went in to surgery, and Dr. Hargrave was able to allay my fears. He set up many follow up appointments in the first month to track my progress and answer all my questions. I felt Dr. Hargrave really cared about the final outcome, which made the whole process much less stressful.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

A Better Version of Me - Albany, NY

I would give Dr. Hargrave and the entire staff at the Plastic Surgery group a 10. The receptionists are friendly and professional. The nurses are very knowledgeable and caring, they even remember your name! I originally thought that I wanted larger implants and I was very reluctant to get a breast lift as well as the implants. Dr. Hargrave discussed the options and his reason for recommending the lift and the smaller implants. I am so glad that I took his advice! I was very happy with all aspects of my surgery and follow-up care.

Dr. Hargrave Changed my Life...When I Was 5!! - Albany, NY

Dr. Hargrave is truly one of the best people I have ever known. He has all of the qualities you could hope for in a surgeon. He's understanding, trustworthy, caring, and honest. I would recommend him in heartbeat to anyone considering getting plastic surgery. There is not one surgeon I would trust more than Dr. Hargrave.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Much-needed Breast Reduction Surgery - Albany, NY

Dr. Hargrave is absolutely wonderful. I was a little nervous at first about seeing a male doctor for this, but at the very first appointment, he made me feel at ease. He is very knowledgeable and answered all my questions, and talked to me before and after the surgery. A few days after the surgery, I even received a call to check up on me and see how I was doing. Dr. Hargrave did a very good job on my surgery, and I'm very pleased with the results. I would recommend him to everyone--in fact, I already have recommended him to a few friends!

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

58 Year Old - Much Needed Tummy Tuck. Albany, NY

Dr. Hargrave was extremely easy to talk to and made me feel very at ease about everything I have no regrets. I definitely would highly recommend him. His follow up was especially great and I am very happy with the results. I already have friends asking who did the surgery. He even called me the evening of my surgery to see how I was doing. I would give him 10 stars if I could.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Dr Hargrave is Great - Albany, NY

Everything was great. He can work miracles. Dr Hargrove changed my life. I had 5kids in 7years and had a fat sac on my front. He made it go away and boosted my self esteem. He called me at home the night of the surgery and continued to follow up. He is great to talk with and has a great bedside manner. The cost was very reasonable as he did thigh scalp too.

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

34 Years Old, 2 Kids Lipo on Outer Thighs - Albany, NY

Dr. Hargrave is the best plastic surgery Dr. By far. He does amazing work, has great bedside manner and makes you feel comfortable all the time. He truly listens to your concerns and answers all your questions. I have had amazing results and would recommend this procedure to anyone that feels uncomfortable with some extra pounds.
