5 out of 5 stars Male Breast Reduction
I had initially looked to be operated on with the intent of ridding myself of unsightly physical features which eroded my self-esteem and confidence. The doctor I chose wasn't the first doctor I consulted, but definitely was the last as I was instantly comforted and relieved of the anxieties I endured concerning the surgery. My doctor is patient, sincerely concerned with the overall...
5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery
The experience with my Plastic Surgeon and his staff was tremendous. The surgeon and his staff provide such a welcoming environment. He is abosolutely amazing. He was very diligent in helping me understand the procedure and he answered every one of my questions. I underwent an upper and lower blepharoplasty and I am very happy with the results. The recovery was quick, pain-free, and there was...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants
It's hard to put into words how I feel today as opposed to, say, a year ago. Last October I had a epiphany and in an instant decided to get breast implants. I swore I'd never say this, but I wish I could have done it years ago. If you are considering it - do not hesitate! The key to my present happiness is having chosen the right doctor. My doctor and his staff were like angels sent to bless...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift
I went to see a new plastic surgeon because I had a breast lift and implants the year before. Every time I looked in the mirror I wanted to cry. The first surgeon did such an awful job. My breast were different sizes. The scars were frightening to look at.My first visit at the office was such a relief. I cried because I was so upset and embarrassed by the original surgery, that I didn't even...

3 out of 5 stars Facelift
I had a facelift and am now left with visible scaring and after a year I don't feel like the result was 100% what I wanted. My jawline is not how I expected it to be and that was the reason for my surgery. I would like to further clairfy my experience here. When I checked no after care/follow up I was referring to the many months after my surgery not hours. The after care at the office...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision
My old implants were over 20 years old, had some kind of coating on them that had deteriorated, were a little encapsulated and needed to be replaced. My breasts were also droopy, as I had children, which only exacerbated the pitosis of the tuberous deformity.
