5 out of 5 stars Thigh Lift

Surgery on Inner Thigh - Manhattan, NY

Absolutely excellent on all levels.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Dr. Schaffner is the Absolute BEST, in Every Aspect - New York, NY

Dr. Schaffner was exceptional in his tackling my challenging request: to permanently correct the symmastia (uni-boob) that resulted from a series of breast surgeries (four, to be exact, including an augmentation and successive revisions). I have contacted the best reconstructive surgeons in New York City and have even been to their offices, but none have made me feel as comfortable and certain, that the condition would be properly corrected, than Dr. Schaffner. He was very attentive, reassuring and confident in his expertise, and I knew that I could wholeheartedly trust him to perform my fifth, and very difficult, surgery. Following what turned out to be a very successful surgery, Dr. Schaffner continues to be readily available to any concerns or questions I may have and makes sure that the healing process is progressing well. - Esther, New York, NY

Pleased With Result - Port Washington, NY

Dr. Schaffner was very professional in explaining the surgical procedure and the expected outcome. He answered all of my questions to my full satisfaction. I will definitely see him again for any of my cosmetic and surgical needs. I would highly recommend Dr. Schaffner to anyone needing a plastic surgeon.--LMS

5 out of 5 stars Restylane

Dr. Schaffner is Excellent! -New York, NY

I met Dr. Schaffner for a consultation after my dermatologist highly recommended him and I'm so glad she did. He seemed extremely knowledgeable about the treatment I sought so I decided to have the treatment done that day. I loved the results and I am certain that the restylane injection came out so well because he is such an expert. He answered all of my questions and concerns, and after my wonderful experience I know I have found the doctor I will use for a very long time.

4 out of 5 stars Acne Scars Treatment

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

His Approach is That of an Artist - New York, NY

My dermatologist of 18 years recommended plastic surgeon Dr. Adam Schaffner. I went for a consultation and found him to be thoughtful and understanding of my concerns. His approach is that of an artist restrained rather than aggressive.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Dr. Schaffner Exceeded my Expectations - New York, NY

It is a big clinic so I felt kind of lost at first. Too many employees and one feels shy when one needs to explain to everyone why you are there. I appreciated that Dr. Schaffner assigned an assistant for my case to make it easy when exchanging information that pertain to my procedure and well being etc. Dr. Schaffner is a true professional and the results of my revised breast reconstruction are amazing! Breast cancer is not easy for women when Drs don't Sympathize with the patient. Dr. Schaffner sells himself short. He over exceeded my expectations. I recommend him 110 percent. R. Castillo

5 out of 5 stars Lip Surgery

I Highly Recommend Dr. Schaffner - New York, NY

I visited Dr. Schaffner for a recent minor surgical procedure and subsequent follow-up. I found him to be extremely knowledgeable, professional, and thoughtful. He took great care to talk me through each step of the procedure to keep me informed, took care to make it as painless as possible, and also carefully minimize future scarring. Overall, it was about as pleasant of a process as I could have imagined.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Removal

I Wholeheartedly Recommend Dr. Adam Schaffner! - New York

Dr. Schaffner is obviously a very skilled and knowledgeable surgeon, but what makes him exceptional in my view is his genuine concern and his accessibility. Prior to making the final decision about my surgery and after my initial consultation, Dr. Schaffner spent a good deal of time on the phone with me after his workday discussing my possible options and outcomes. I felt fully informed and comfortable with my decision because of this. There were also two instances after my surgery where minor complications arose (due to allergy then infection) when I called Dr. Schaffner on his personal phone. He spent a long time over the phone assessing what was going on, and offered to see me immediately. He is both professional and personable in his manner, which was very reassuring throughout the process. I also appreciate that he did not push unrealistic expectations, I knew what outcomes were likely and possible, and know what I can expect in the future. I absolutely would recommend him to family or friends needing or wanting cosmetic surgery. MSM

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Exceptional! - New York, NY

My entire visits with Dr. Schaffner are marked with courtesy and professionalism. I have been a patient of Dr. Schaffner's for a couple of years now. I see him for routine botox injections. He knows exactly how much botox is neccessary to give my 50 yr. old face the appearance of a 30 yr. old face! Really! He is that amazing! He is a fantastic listner and really pays attention to detail. Dr. Schaffner has never ONCE made my face look over-done. In my opinion, he is a true artist! Also, Dr. Schaffner is so skilled that I have never ONCE seen any bruises develop following injections...that's rare! I am always extremely impressed with his work. I certainly would recommend Dr. Schaffner to anyone whose lokking for the best! AJ
