After losing a lot of weight the shape of my breasts changed drastically and I was rather self conscious. Dr Maresky helped me change this, throughout the process he made me feel comfortable and safe. One month later and I'm absolutely ecstatic with the result, I couldn't recommend a better surgeon!

New Beginning

Dr maresky gave me a not only a new body but a new lease on life. It's only been a few weeks but my confidence is immeasurable and the new friend that i have gained in him is invaluable. Believe me when I say that this is a Dr in a million. He makes you feel as though you are his single most important patient and you feel as though there is no challenge too great for him. His compassion and non judgemental character and excellent bedside manner makes for one great doctor... And the results speak for themself. Dr maresky equipped me with all the knowledge I needed to make an informed decision. He was patient and intuitive to my individual needs and never placed me under pressure. He made my decision mine completely and after my procedure I can guarantee that I have no regrets. His work is a masterpiece... To put it in a nutshell... Flat as a pancake am i :-)
