5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Best Experience With Great Results! - Charleston, SC

I had a BA with Dr. Hensel in 2008 and it was one of the best experiences I've had! He gave me great results, and I always felt comfortable and safe in his care. I'm going to have another BA to change fills, and size and theres no question that I will be using Dr. Hensel again!!! I had hardly any tissue and I wanted to achieve a C cup but with a natural look. Dr. Hensel did that for me....

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Great Injector! - Charleston, SC

I went to him because he was voted Best Plastic Surgeon. I have trusted Dr. Jack for years as my go to for facial fillers and botox. He has never tried to over sale or talk me into anything. The office has a relaxed, "real people" feel to it. My goal is to not try to look younger than I am just enhance what I have and he understands. When I look better I feel better.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

My Experience with my Tummy Tuck - Mount Pleasant, SC

MY motivation was that i wanted to look great in a bikini. After i had my son i worked out for more than a year, my friend that was the closest to me was always putting me down which made me very insecure, i kept going to the gym and i moved away from Virginia.

5 out of 5 stars Sculptra

Thank You! Thank You! - Charleston, SC

I was referred to Dr. Jack Hansel by a friend. My experience has been wonderful:) I am a person who is allergic to everything and was very afraid to use a filler without patch testing my skin. I had been to other doctors who said that fillers are harmless and would not test me. Dr. Hensel was amazing when I had told him my story and my fears. He immediately tested my skin to ease my mind. He...

5 out of 5 stars Cellulaze

Happy Customer! Mount Pleasant, SC

I am turning 40 this August and I have had cellulite on the back of my legs since I was a teenager! I am very active, I work out, and I eat healthy, but no matter what I do, I just can't get the back of my legs to look smooth. I started researching procedures that might help me and I sent a consultation request to Dr. Hensel's office. I got a response within 24 hours from Michele who spoke to...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation/Lift - Charleston, SC

I was very pleased and have already referred many friends who want the same procedure. Dr. Hensel and staff were very helpful and accommodated my teaching schedule by getting me in the Friday before spring break!!! The healing process has been awesome and I feel like he did a beautiful job! I did a lot of research and viewed many images. My results were much better than any image I have viewed online. Thank you so much.

2 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Dr. Hensel 2006 Breast Reduction Left Me with More Cons Than Pros - Charleston, SC

I had some back pain, bra digging in skin, and having a petite frame, with DDs it was a challenge to exercise. So my PCP recommended a breast reduction and TRICARE referred me to Dr. Hensel. Great guy but communication was poor, especially since he failed to inform me that he would be cutting all the way to my underarm for the breast reduction, which of course left a scar that is a challenge...

5 out of 5 stars NeoGraft

500 Graft Neograft Hair Transplant

I wanted to wait to post this until I had some results to base a review on. So here it is. I am at about 6 months post procedure and am happy to say that my expectations have been surpassed. This is the only cosmetic procedure I have ever had, so I only had 500 grafts done this time. The experience and results have been so positive that I now wish that I would have gone ahead with another...

1 out of 5 stars Cellulite Treatment

49 Years of Age. Charleson, SC

I was charged so much per area. While having the procedure the quit early, it was in the evening. The Dr. didn't complete approx. 30% of what I paid for. I complained but they said the average, or group the price, which they didn't say prior to the surgery. They did not use anesthesia, rather had me take pain pills that didn't work well. When I left I was in severe pain, my husband...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Great Tummy Tuck and Breast Lift

I have received excellent care from everyone and everyone has jumped to take care of my needs my questions, return my calls, and Michele Hensel giving me her personal cell phone number which I've tried hard not to abuse. I know that I have low tolerance and low patience, huge anxiety, and I'm not the best patient! I am so pleased with the way my stomach and my breast look. I can't wait till...
