5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

20 Years Old, Pectus Excavatum, 410 Cc, Textured and Shaped Implants

Dr. Dennis Hurwitz is a plastic surgeon genius!! My overall experience with him and his team was incredible. He is a very knowledgable and experienced doctor. I have a chest deformity which can be difficult to position implants, but Dr. Hurwitz knew exactly what size and shape they needed to be. After about a month and a half I am completely healed and you can barely see my scars at all. They look very natural and fit my body shape perfectly. I would definitely recommend this PS and trust his process because he knows what he's doing.

27 Gynecomastia

Dr. Dennis Hurwitz did my surgery in Pittsburgh,Pa. When I entered his really nice office his staff was very friendly and nice. Dr. Hurwitz was on time and I had a great first impression. Im usually scared of Doctors but he has a way of making you feel calm and comfortable. When we did our consultation he answered all my questions. When I had my surgery at the Waterfront Surgical Center the center was nice and the staff was great also. After my surgery Dr. Hurwitz would call and check up on me. I just felt at ease about everything. When I would call his office the staff was amazing, knowledgeable and always gave me their full attention. Sometimes I would call a couple times a day and they never got annoyed. Lol. After all the years of pain and being made fun of. I wish I would have done this sooner. Dr. Hurwitz did a GREAT job and I am blessed and happy he did it. I would recommend him to anyone.

I am a new woman since I have first consulted with Dr. Hurwitz!

Dr Hurwitz is an expert in surgery. He operated on my breasts with fantastic results. They look spectacular! He recommended weight loss prior to the surgery and gave me the tools to achieve a 25 lb weight loss before the surgery. I am a changed woman physically and psychologically after his intervention. He is very kind and understanding as is all his staff.

Completely felt at ease and comfortable during my entire procedure.

I couldn't say enough wonderful things about Dr. Hurwitz and his staff. They each take plenty of time with you before your surgery to answer of your questions. They are all so friendly and professional. After surgery, I had a small complication and Dr. Hurwitz came right back to the surgery center, then met at ambulance at the hospital. He has a great bedside manner as well as an overall...

385/425 Silicone Texture and Inner/outer Thigh Lipo - Pittsburgh, PA

Super nice, very informative! He recommended that I went bigger than 425 cc and I said no way.. Now I wish I would have!! He was right! Also I begged him for a inner thigh gap because I hate that mine rub together. He guaranteed it. I look like I still have one currently but I think it's cause I'm still swollen! Hopefully!!!

The Countdown is On!!! - Pittsburgh, PA

I found Dr. Hurwitz through researching plastic surgeons in the area. With his credentials and wonderful staff, it was a truly easy decision to make. Dr. Hurwitz even has satelllite offices in Beverly Hills and in Brazil. He is ranked in the top 1% of plastic surgeon physicians throughout the country. I have had fillers injected into my face for the past couple years at this facility before deciding that I was ready to have the mommy makeover. I never considered anyone else to do the procedure. I knew that I wanted only the absolute best working on me. After personally viewing Dr. Hurwitz' work on my own body, I can honestly say that this individual is a gifted artist. His skills are incredible. He has made my body beautiful once again. I will always be grateful to Dr. Hurwitz and I recommend him to anyone that I hear is looking for a plastic surgeon.

My family said I looked like myself - not done. I have to say I do feel like me with energy and don't dred looking in the mirror everyday at 4:15 am. Realistic expectations are so important for a positive outlook. S.E...
