5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

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

I have been considering getting a boob job since the day I realized my -a cup would never grow. I have 5'9, athletic build, average size bottom but no boobs. I am a very confident girl but never liked the way my small boobs looked in shirts or dresses so I made the decision after I graduated to go through with the procedure. It took 30 minutes and I was in and out couldn't have been easier! Dr...

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

I decided on breast implants after I began weight training. Getting breast implants was something I had always thought about, but after putting on a large amount of muscle I decided it was time to go through with it. I had many concerns before the procedure and did a lot of research. My first concern was size. I wanted a natural look for my frame. After consulting with my PS, I decided on...

A Better Version of Me - Albany, NY

I was undergoing a painful divorce and I decided that I needed to do something to make myself feel better about myself. I decided that I wanted to get breast implants and I knew that I wanted Dr. Douglas Hargrave to do the procedure. Dr. Hargrave performed a breast lift, liposuction under my arms and inserted 275 cc implants. Dr. Hargrave's work was excellent. I experienced very little...

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

I have been lucky enough to have a few experiences with Dr. Hargrave. I was 5 years old the first time I met Dr. Hargrave. I met him at Albany Medical Center after an akita had maliciously attacked me, deeply biting into my nose and separating my top lip. Throughout my childhood Dr. Hargrave performed 3 other reconstructive surgeries, each one was done to perfection. Now nearly 14 years later,...

Much-needed Breast Reduction Surgery - Albany, NY

I'm 17 years old and as of two weeks ago, I was an H cup. I'd lost the ability to exercise because of how much it hurt, and it was driving me crazy, so I finally made the decision to get a reduction. It was the best decision I've ever made! Only two weeks after the surgery, I already feel much better! The extra weight pulling down on my shoulders is gone, and my back hurts much less. The bonus...

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.

14 Days & Counting to my TT and Nervous! (with video) - Albany, NY

5 out of 5 stars Radiesse

Perfect Radiesse Results - LOVE IT!

45 YO, wanted to diminish my N/F. Found a certified P.S. who would have used Juvederm if I wanted, but prefered Radiesse - said he recommends it to any of his family members who come in. Said it is 'fuller', lasts longer, and he likes the results better. I said OK! Pain was very minimal, I've had dental shots that hurt worse (they said they mixed the radiesse with numbing meds). Slight...
