5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

34 DD, 26, 5'0 128 Lbs, No Children

I am 1 week away from bilateral breast reduction surgery and am starting to feel nervous! I have wanted to have this procedure done for at least 5 years and can't wait to experience smaller breasts. I have been experiencing neck and back pain for quite some time. I am limited in working out and in what I can wear. I just ordered post op front closure bras with no under wires and am going...

The Best Experience Ever!

I had an amazing experience with Dr. Blechman! I had a breast reduction 4 days ago and I couldn't be more happy with the experience and the results! His bedside manner is amazing, and he made me feel extremely comfortable going into my very first surgery. I would do the procedure again in a heartbeat. If you are on the fence or questioning anything, please don't! They will take great care of...

Easy and amazing experience

I don't know where to begin. I will first say Dr Blechman was simply amazing. I went into his office for a breast reduction consultation. His assistant Mersis handled all the paperwork with my insurance company. Even when getting a delayed response she told me not to worry she would follow up with them and that's exactly what she did. Fast forward 2 months later and one week post op....Im...

22 Year Old Much Needed Breast Reduction and Lift - New York, NY

My surgery was in January of 2016. I am now about 10 month post-op and i couldn't be happier with my results. My Breast Reduction and lift was done by Dr. Blechman. I am not typically a review writer, being that i was so pleased with my results and the way him and his staff took care of me during the entire process i felt i must write one ! Leading up to the procedure i had tons of questions and was very nervous. Dr. Blechman put my mind at ease and made me feel very comfortable. If i had any questions i was always able to get in touch with someone. The girls in the front were so personable felt like a big family, and a very comfortable place to be. Dr blechman's bedside manner was exceptional if it was a call or email he always contacted me back right away. I just had my first vacation this summer since my surgery and i finally felt beautiful and comfortable in my own skin and its all thanks to Dr. Blechman. He is a life changer! I went for a visit last week and he told me i now don't have to come back for a year ! and it was kind of sad! who would think i would be sad to not have to go to the doctor once a month or every 3-6 months anymore! definitely a bitter sweet moment because, a visit with Dr. Blechman was always a pleasure. I traveled an hour and a half commute just to have Dr. Blechman and i wouldn't change my decision. If you are thinking about getting a Breast Procedure of any kind and are hesitant on who to go to and are reading this post.. Dr. Blechman is your guy !! you won't be disappointed...THANK YOU DR. BLECHMAN !!!

39-years-old, 2 Kids, Breast Reduction Will Hopefully Alleviate Neck and Back Pain

I was referred to Dr Blechman by Dr Urmeni Desai, whom I found here. Dr Desai is not in my insurance's network, so he referred me to his associate Dr Blechman. Had my first consult with Dr Blechman today, 10/17/16, and walked out with my surgery date. I was pleasantly surprised at just how fast he and his medical assistant Mirsis work. So competent! Mirsis had already spoken to my insurance before I got there and they confirmed that my plan covers breast reduction. She said she'd submit my paperwork and pictures today and hopes to hear back from them in a week or two. She and Dr Blechman seemed confident that I would get approved. Dr Blechman has the best bedside manner. He listened to me intently and explained in detail what the procedure would entail. 3 hours of surgery in an outpatient facility and I would be home the same day and walking around. I was concerned about the fact that I am overweight and he said the size of my breasts is proportionate to my weight, therefore he won't tell me to lose weight first before having the surgery and he doesn't believe the insurance will either. He did explain the risks that I face after surgery though because of my weight, like the fluids not draining properly and the risk of a blood clot in my leg. He emphasized the importance of being ambulatory from day one post surgery. By the time I left, Mirsis had set up a surgery date for me and they gave me a letter for my PCP for the blood work I need. I went straight to my PCP after the appointment with Dr Blechman and got my blood drawn. I don't want to waste any time. Wednesday I will go for a mammogram. Seeing Dr Blechman again on 10/31/16 for a pre-op appointment. I'm so excited.

I have my life back...thank you Dr. Blechman

Dr. Blechman and his staff are wonderful, caring and concerned about the patient and their experience. I had to have an implant replaced from breast cancer surgery. The implant was too small and causing me much discomfort and pain...this was going on for 3.5 years and seriously affecting my quality of life. We found Dr. Blechman through our research and we are so grateful we did. Dr....

Beautiful, Natural Looking Rhinoplasy: Couldn't Be Happier! - New York, NY

When I first began to explore the idea of getting a rhinoplasty, I only went to Dr. Blechman for preliminary information since I wasn't ready to take the plunge quite yet and the consultation was free. Even though I wasn't an official patient, Dr. Blechman answered all of my questions with patience and honesty. The financial planner I met with at this office was equally informative and helped the cost seem less daunting and easier to plan for. I was so blown away by my visit, that I chose to get the procedure and set my surgery date with Dr. Blechman. I was confident in my choice and stayed calm in the months leading up to the big day because he and his staff were so communicative and friendly. My surgery was about three hours long, and I woke up feeling comfortable with very little pain. The nurse was also very kind and attentive. My follow up appointments revealed how excellent the work was as the swelling continued to go down. I had a wonderful experience overall and would recommend Dr. Blechman to anyone looking for a beautiful, natural-looking rhinoplasty.

Breast Reduction (Through my Insurance) - New York

Dr. Blechman and his staff was amazing from consultation to post op care, and anything in between. Dr. Blechman is well educated and he makes sure you leave educated as well. He's confident and realistic, he let me know the pros and any possible con, and I appreciated that. Mirsis; his assistant is a doll who loves what she does and it showed with every interaction I've had with her.
