The procedure was in office and just as described by Dr Lickstein. I would totally recommend him. The procedure took about 2.5 - 3 hrs. He was very caring, pleasant and attentive through out.

Breast Aug and Mini Tuck - Fairfax, VA

I had a breast augmentation and mini tummy tuck performed by Dr. Lickstein.

49 Y Old, Four Pregrancies, 2 Children, Needed It Tummy Tuck & Lipo - Fairfax, VA

I first visited doctor Lickstein for an opinion on Tummy Tuck & Lipo procedure. I was so impressed with his talent and vision. He was so professional and confident that I felt very secure and comfortable to go for the surgery right a way.

5 out of 5 stars Body Lift

Post-Massive Weight Loss Lower Body Lift and Breast Reduction/lift. Fairfax, VA

After consults with several other surgeons, I chose Dr. Lickstein for my breast reduction/lift and lower body lift following massive weight loss in 2012. He had only been with the Bitar Institute for Cosmetic Surgery for three months and I wasn't able to find much in terms of reviews on-line, so I did lots of due diligence before even my initial consult. I cannot express how happy I am with my decision. Dr. Lickstein immediately puts you at ease and right away understood that I was going to need major surgery - not just a little tightening. He approached me from both a medical and an aesthetic approach which was a bit of a surprise for me. It's been years since I thought of my body as beautiful - and he has unexpectedly helped me get to this place. I'm not at my goal weight, but I've been at a steady weight for over 2 years now - and he agreed with my bariatric surgeon that it was time to get rid of the skin that was causing me such great discomfort. He is a meticulous surgeon - which was confirmed again just before I went under by the nurses in the OR. They said I made a good choice and they all really like working with him bc he takes such good care of his patients to ensure the best outcomes. My follow up care has been great. I still have a ways to go (only 2 weeks post- op so far), but I wish I had more reviews about this surgeon ahead of time to just for peace of mind. One of the things I really like about Dr. Lickstien is that he tends to treat his patients as a partner in the process. I'm not sure this is intentional or just his personality, but it makes a big difference to know that I have a major say in my care and am not just another patient getting another procedure. He takes the time to listen and consider all options and that's a pretty rare trait in a surgeon. I highly recommend Dr. Lickstein. Also - I peeked in the mirror for the first time today - I'm not a mirror person likely due to my weight issues - and I only saw my new body for a moment bc the tears just started to flow. I look so...normal. Thank you thank you thank you Dr. Lickstein!

5 out of 5 stars Mini Lift

I Had a Mini Face Lift , Lower Half Called a Max. Had Neck Done and Fat Taken out of Jaws. Also Bags Removed from Lower Eyes

I thought he was wonderful. Listened to everything I said, and asked me to bring in pictures I liked. I did and he had them hanging up in operating room. Everything was perfect including the outcome. It is now 6 weeks away. I also had something put under my jaw and chin which continues to tighten it and Laser inside under my chin.

Lipo of Abdomen, Flanks, Upper Back/Gynecomastia - Fairfax, VA

My dealings w/my Patient Coordinators (Seppy and Jeryl) were excellent in the handling of all the administrative data and scheduling that happens before hand. I started of w/over 10 Dr's and finally chose Dr. Lickstein of the Bitnar Institute in Virginia. He was very honest and upfront about the procedure and the amount of pain that would be involved. We discussed other methods such as Coolsculpting, Ultrashape, and Ultrashape Lipo and the results that you could expect with each in retrospect to the shape I was wanting to achieve. As well as doing it under local and general anesthesia. We went in depth on skin elasticity, muscle tone, and the amount of time to achieve the final results. I told him to be aggressive and thoroughly explained my expectations. He was very open to discussion and made himself available to all of my questions. Keep in mind I'm saying this now before surgery. I will update once the procedure is finished.
