5 out of 5 stars Arm Lift

Absolutely THE BEST Cosmetic Surgeon I've Ever Had the Pleasure of Working With! - Manhattan, NY

Dr. Wallach is absolutely the best doctor I've ever had the pleasure of working with! From the moment you walk into his office you KNOW it's going to be a different experience! First of all, his waiting room is cozy and understated...AND NEVER FULL of patients! He doesn't overbook!! His staff is amazing. I had the pleasure of working with Nicole who is the "right hand" to the doctor in regards to admistrative duties...but she's more than "office help". This woman is friendly, caring, down to earth and is ON POINT - she knows her stuff and was very patient when I had alot of questions. Such a refreshing change from other offices. Arm lifts come with quite a bit of's not like most other proceedures. I knew the scars would be visible. It was important to me that I chose a doctor that would be very honest with me about the severity of the scars AND it was even MORE important to me that I chose a doctor with a good bedside manner. Dr. Wallach has an AMAZING BEDSIDE MANNER! He is down to earth, friendly, and will answer all of your questions regarding your proceedure. I felt that he had the experience with this proceedure that I was looking for. I had my proceedure the week after HURRAINE SANDY hit NYC. I had some last minute questions a few days before the operation and I was so happy to know that the staff was still available for me to speak with during that crazy time in NYC. The operation was a complete success. I owe that to Dr. Wallach! I'm so happy with the results. He changed my life. I've worked with three other Cosmetic Surgeons and I've never been happy with their bedside manners or the outcome of the proceedure. I feel like they never took the time to tell me all of the risks, or were never honest with me about the healing process. Dr. Wallach is EXTREMELY honest and caring. I plan to have more work done over the next three years including a lower body lift and I want to re-do my boobs. You can be sure that I will be working with Dr. Wallach time and time again. I cannot say enough good things about this wonderful doctor.

Best Plastic Surgeon in NYC

I have known Dr. Wallach for about 11 years, in that time I have had 2 procedures done with him as well as recommending him to friends and family. Any questions or concerns I ever had have addressed immediately. He never pressured me or pushed me to do any extra procedures. Dr Wallach is very honest, kind, caring, and compassionate as well as an artist, he wants the best possible outcome and he pushes to achieve it.

5 out of 5 stars Botox

This Dr Knows What He's Doing Results Last and Look Better Than Other Injectors - New York, NY

Anyone that practices or in the medical field can get certified to do injections over years of getting botox I've learned the hard way it's best to go to a plastic surgeon. Read fine print when booking w injectors. This Dr did an amazing job and it lasted and he stands behind his work and great bedside manner. He was reasonably priced and the results were amazing Botox is an art there is a science to it and if you go to a someone that doesn't know how to mix the botox or inject it you will waste your money.
