Thank You Dr. Karlinsky - Manhattan, NY

My experience with Dr. Karlinsky was beyond amazing! I am a 40 years old mother of 4 and have gone through the past 13 years with terrible back pain and feeling unattractive. My breast weighed me down both physically as well as emotionally and Dr. Karlinsky changed that. From the minute that I walked into her office, I was greeted by her friendly and knowledgable staff who made me feel...

Wanted This Forever. - New York, NY

I'm 54, 5'1 and 129 lbs. Have 2 teenagers. Was always a good weight until I had my kids in my mid 30s. Gained 35 pounds with my kids and finally got it off last year. Needless to say I have the worst blubber belly. I always fantasized about doing something like this, but was afraid. Thought it was shallow, or that I should spend my money on something else. And then I realized that I'm...

Couldn't Be Happier!!! - Manhattan, NY

I have waited my whole life to do this procedure and although I'm only 10 days post-op, I couldn't be happier! I was highly recommended to go to Dr. Karlinsky by my gynecologist and went based solely on her recommendation. I knew the second I stepped into the office, that I was in the right place. The staff makes you feel as though you know them for years. They are not only knowledgeable...

26 with PCOS, Lipo on Arms, Upper/lower Abdomen, Interior Thighs/Knees - New York, NY

I have always struggled with my weight. I eat relatively well and am extremely active, working out 5-6 times a week. I have PCOS and am insulin resistant, so I have to maintain a very low carb diet to really see results. I'm 5'6" and have stayed between 175-185 lbs for the last 5 years. I was able to get down to about 160 about 10 years ago, working out with a personal trainer 3x a week, and...

Finally Joined and Set the Date for my BBL - New York, NY

I've been reading everyone's reviews for a while now and I have decided that I will have the BBL surgery. I went for a consultation yesterday I my hospital as well as all the staff made me feel very comfortable. They told me that I was in great shape already and did not have much fat to make a huge butt. I was fine with that because I am not looking for a huge donkey booty. I met with my PS,...

Wonderful Doctor Great Results - Manhattan, NY

Chose her via a Lifebooker special offer but now call them direct and continue twice x 3 times a year non-surgical injections. Dr Karlinsky has a great calm manner, she never up-sells you treatments/products which i like.

5 out of 5 stars Lower Face Lift

Lower Face and Neck. New York City, NY

Like the Nora Ephron book said, I feel bad about my neck. Even more than the droop at the sides of my mouth, my droop under my chin drove me crazy. I had virtually no visible results on the neck from Ultherapy. I read a lot and was under the impression that a mini-lift will not make much of a difference under the chin. I talked with Dr. Karlinsky a few times about it and she said it wouldn't...

But new developments in clinical research...
