Great Experience, Love the Results - Short Hills, NJ

I am in my mid thirties and really wanted to do something about my crows feet around my eyes and lines on my forehead. I went to Dr. Ovchinsky's office for a consultation. He suggested Botox. I was a little nervous but he made me feel at ease. He was very professional and attentive. He addressed all of my concerns and answered all of my questions. The whole experience was very pleasant. His staff was very professional, friendly and responsive. I just love the results. I also had Juvederm injections around my mouth. I most definitely plan to keep up the great results. Great experiense and most definitely worth it.

Best Doctor Ever! - Short Hills, NJ

He is an excellent doctor! Dr. Ovchinsky did my lip implants twice (second time I moved up a size), and I could not have asked for a better doctor. Through the whole process he was attentive and genuinely cared for my wellbeing. He answered all of my questions and concerns and made me feel comfortable and confident about having the surgery. I recommend Dr. Ovchinsky to everyone! Because of him I'm more confident about the way I look and you would never be able to tell that I even had anything done, they look perfect and natural.
