5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Dr. Doft changed my life!

From the moment I met Dr. Doft I knew she was going to perform a miracle! Dr. Doft went beyond and above my expectations and I couldn't be happier, I feel as though she has given me my life back and for that I am forever grateful to her!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Totally changed my life!

After living for a long time with neck pain, I finally made the decision to have breast reduction surgery. Within the first 15 minutes of my consultation, I knew I wanted Dr. Melissa Doft to do my procedure. She is kind, gentle, and very knowledgeable. It is very evident that Dr. Doft is meticulus in her work, which was very calming for someone like me. She walked me through the entire...

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid Surgery in New York

I underwent upper eyelid surgery. The word surgery really scared me. I had so many apprehensions because the procedure was so close to my eyes. When I met Dr. Doft, my apprehensions disappeared because of her clear and reassuring way of explaining how the procedure will be performed. I felt that she knew exactly what she was doing and what was the best option for me. And true enough, I am...

Mary K - New York, NY

Dr. Doft is simply stated, THE BEST. I consulted with doctors for many years considering Breast reduction, yet never felt right about going through with the procedure. Dr Doft is kind, easy to speak to, extremely approachable pre and post procedure for concerns or questions, I highly recommend Dr. Doft.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

20 Year Old Breast Augmentation/lip Injections - New York

Where do I even begin with Dr.Melissa Doft ?! Not only did she make me feel so comfortable at my consultation but confident in my decision of what to do to my body. Being so young I wanted my results to look very natural. Before my augmentation one of my breast was unusually bigger than the other. Melissa guided me to picking the appropriate size for my body type and the CCs to make my breasts...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

34 Yo F with a Need for a Perfect Profile - New York, NY

I grew up hating my profile and never wanting to pull back my hair! Earlier this year, I made the decision to have my nose done. My sister is a physician and helped me research many doctors online. I met with my favorite three in Manhattan and choose to have surgery with Dr. Doft. Now I am three months post-surgery and could not be happier. You can take my picture from any direction! Dr....
