5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Full Face/neck Lift - Wide Awake - Local Anesthesia

Skilled reconstructive and plastic surgeon. Will work with you to create the experience YOU want. Does not push procedures. Does not push procedures you do not want or need. Comes in on Saturday if you need care. Is honest about realistic outcomes. Treats you like a competent adult; not a two-year old. Is at your beck and call if you need something. Only does head and neck surgery. Not a boob or lipo guy that does faces on the side. Honest about recovery. No, you will not heal from a facelift in two weeks. Will go out of his way to address the most minor issue that is important to YOU. On time, every time. Will tell you what is realist and what is not. LOVES to sew. And is very, very good at it.

5 out of 5 stars Lip Lift

54 Y/o, Lip Lift and 5 Mm Surgisil Implants Upper and Lower - Charleston, SC

I cannot say enough good things about Dr Hochman and his staff. They are warm and caring and friendly and willing to help with anything. His nurse, Kim, really went the extra mile for me trying to sort out pain relief options. I abhor narcotics, they make me violently ill and I certainly didn't need to be vomiting with a mouth and nose full of stitches. Kim did a lot of research and came up with a combo (Zofran and Nucynta) that solves that problem for most people. We did a trial run on a Saturday two weeks before my procedure when I could afford to be ill for a few hours, but the combo worked like a charm. No nausea, no vomiting, no dizziness. She really went the extra mile for me. As for Dr Hochman, the man is brilliant. He's a good listener, very receptive and welcoming, and seems to have a personal stake in creating a perfect outcome. His sutures are tiny, meticulous and even. I will never go to anyone else for facial surgery!

Permalip - Charleston, SC

He is very professional and precise. He has a lot of experience and does a lot of work with the hospital and children. I googled him and researched his credentials extensively.
