5 out of 5 stars Lip Surgery

professionalism personified...

When i was a younger lad, i was involved in a ghastly vehicular accident that led to life threatening injuries upon myself, along with an unfortunate fatality to the soul of another passenger, which casted an unfortunate lumbering energy that will forever encompass that distant night. after surviving the ordeal, i required a vast amount of plastic surgery to ameliorate all the wounds,...

5 out of 5 stars Belotero

Dr. Bass is phenomenal!

I am always so happy to return to Dr. Bass' office. Not only is the staff so welcoming and helpful, but Dr. Bass' work is perfection! I totally recommend you visit him for fillers (that's what I got)!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Fat Transfer

Natural Breast Augmentation Fat Grafting - fat removed from my back so why not put it to good use - New York, NY

Words cannot express how I feel about Dr. Bass and his staff. Dr. Bass is and will always be our family Plastic Surgeon. There is no reason to seek any other plastic surgeonsother than him (don't waste your time or money). He has done 3 necessary procedures for me (Hernia, Tummy Tuck and now Natural Breast Augmentation). What a beautiful job he did, my breast look amazing! went from an A to a nice B! Fits my body perfectly

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Best Plastic Surgeon in New York! - New York, NY

I was referred to Dr. Bass from one of his colleagues at NSLIJ. She is the head of Radiology and Mammography. I had chosen Dr. Bass immediately after my initial consultation. He made me feel at ease and secure. Dr. Bass found a hernia that also needed to be addressed. The other PS I met never mentioned it to me. Not only is Dr. Bass wonderful, he surrounds his self with the most wonderful Assistants and Nurses. You won't be disappointed! You will recover much quicker too!

5 out of 5 stars Radiesse

Radiesse and Belotero Shots for Rejuvenation - Manhattan, NY

Found him on RealSelf. Doctor Bass was very jovial throughout the procedure, I was really thankful for the time he took to respond to all of my questions in detail, and even to respond to my mother's worries when she came in. (The price can seem a little high, but that's because I used quite a lot of product, I wanted that facelift that would put me into my early twenties again, but if it's simply to fill in the undereye or plump the lip, that doesn't necessitate much product, the price would be dramatically reduced. Doctor Bass definitely makes it possible to have a cheaper procedure).

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Personal - Amazing - New York

I've been seeing Dr Bass for a few years for Botox and Restylan injections. I'm very pleased with how gentle, and painless he administers the injections. EXTREMELY pleased with my results! I highly recommend him if you're looking for a physician who listens and cares about the work he does!

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Very Professional - New York

I went to Dr Bass for consultation in the beginning I was not sure if I will do the procedure. During the consultation, he explained everything in details, answered all my questions and so helpful and did everything he promised me to do which unusual with cosmetic surgeon. His stuff was so nice and helpful. In the day of operation, he put me to sleep so I didn`t feel pain during the procedure.I felt pain after the operation but it was ok after the pain killer. The procedures wounds are small and completely healed after less than one week. I went for follow up after a week when he offered me free ultrasound sessions to help me get the best result really recommend this doctor as he is so professional.

5 out of 5 stars Radiesse

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

An Extraordinarily Talented Physician - New York, NY

Dr. Bass is a highly talented surgeon. I'm in my mid-thirties, male, having undergone a rhinoplasty, cheek implants, and fat injections in my jaw. I decided to go with him because he was the only surgeon who was not only willing to answer my detailed questions, but also because he goes into detail, almost cherishing in engaging with his patients. He is what I would call an academic surgeon in that he's curious and explores all angles prior to providing a course of treatment. Dr. Bass is conservative in that he seeks to achieve the patient's goal while ensuring the enhancements are natural. In my case, he was systematically successful. As my swelling dissipated, Dr Bass has continuously provided follow-ups and suggested courses for the future. His staff is highly cooperative, and helpful. They are also highly informed, and aware of patient's needs. On my surgery days, their care was indispensable. Regardless of your goals, Dr Bass would be an outstanding surgeon. I give him my highest recommendation.

I wanted to look like me, just a younger version - Thank You - New York

Dr. Bass is incredibly patient and knowledgeable. He answered all of my questions before my treatment and spent a long time with me discussing my goals and fears about the injections. He explained everything to me in a way that I understood and didn't make me feel silly for asking a lot of questions.
