Let me start by saying Dr. Baldenhofer is a great Plastic Surgeon. I went to his office after shopping around for a surgeon to correct/remove a Hemotma I had developed after getting surgery outside the USA (in Dominican Republic). I had no problem with my tummy tuck, except I didnt follow all my first surgeon's instructions. I developed a seroma and when that was resolved I developed a hemotma a month later.... to make a long story short, I had to find a Doctor in the States that would treat me. After an emergency room visit, I found a dr but he was more concern with re-doing my tummy tuck and insulting the first surgeon's work, when in fact she did a great job. I soon realized he was not being honest about necessary treatment therefore he was NOT the doctor for me. I shopped around and found Dr. Baldenhofer! My consultation was free, and very pleasant, he was upfront and honest with me about all possible and ideal treatments and risk...even if it meant not retaining me as a patient, he did not judge me for having surgery outside the country nor did he talk negatively about the doctor that performed my tummy tuck , he was impressed (I showed him pics). Dr. Baldenhofer told me we can wait and see if the hematoma resolve itself or remove it, after going over things with my husband, we decide the sooner its resolve the better. We scheduled the procedure which was within two weeks. Arlene, his surgery consultant is great with scheduling and communication; she was on top of things. After I made my payment for the procedure everything else fell in place. I am 4 days post op and has already seen Baldenhofer once (scheduled appt) I am scheduled to see him in 2 more days for the second time. He is a hands on Doctor, answering all inquiries urgency immediately. Right now I have lots of swelling but soon I will upload pics...before and after. My pain is minimum but can get hectic at times. I will be back in a few with more on my journey....extended journey. Lol
