Gynecomastia Surgery Was the Best Choice I Ever Made - NYC

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...

Upper/Lower Eyelid Surgery- Great Result!

Beautiful Breast Implants - I'm So Happy Now

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...

Breast - Yes; Facelift - Not Sure

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...

Amazing Breast Work - New York, NY

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.
