This is the story of how Dr. Hecht ruined my nose for my lifetime... My breathing is still compromised after all these corrective attempts. Had surgery in june 2008. Immediately after splint was taken off there were 3 irregularities on my right side, one was VERY obvious was part of the ear graft he used and was sticking out (protruding out of the skin) two, was the entire graft you could see the outline (my skin is thin which I have discussed with current surgeons that he should not have done this) Three, irregularity was a dip just above my tip that was NOT there before surgery ( he built up my tip and didnt fill in the area in bet the graft and my tip. . 6 weeks later he TRIED to fix it IN HIS OFFICE because he didnt want to upset his reputation by taking me back to the hospital and put me under anethesia and he said that I would have to pay for it In his office, during this 2nd attempt his assistant (Veronica) had to hold me down due to the pain, I was sweating and shaking from the pain, he injected me with 12 shots in my nose VERY PAINFUL.After the tape came off the irregularities were still there!!. My nose looked worse because the swelling was coming down from the first surgery. 2 months later, a 3rd attempt was made to correct, he tried to "needle" the cartlidge,that was still sticking out, down. Didnt' work. 4th time he took me in to the hospital again (on my expense, asked him to meet me half way and wouldn't). he then took out only half the graft he put in from my ear in the first surgery which created a dent about as wide as a pencil, and created two new bumps that have never gone away. I will send anyone pics to see his hack job...... He then tried to calm down the bump by using steroid injections ( this was the 5 th attempt to correct) and thinned my skin so bad that I have a permanent dermal scar. Prioir to surgery, I asked him if he felt comfortable doing this procedure, and he said yes, Obviously a doctor having to try 5 times to correct it was not capable nor experienced to take on my nose. It was completely unethical for him to do what he did. What kind of doctor tries 5 times and makes it worse. he should have refered me to a doctor that could perform this surgery. Today every doctor that I have seen (3 top ones in LA , One in TX One in NH) says that he performed below the standard of care. If you would like to know more details contact me Aztrigal@gmail.com . i can supply you with photos. the photos he takes at his office or no detailed enough. I have proof. This entry is NOT an exageration of what transpired. I am a middle age college educated profesional woman, not someone just trying to ruin his reputation from a surgery ( realizing that outcomes are not always perfect) however Dr. Hecht should have realized that he was not capable of doing this procedure. Other Doctors explain to me in detail what should have been doen. I can share that with you if you want to contact me.

Just had a septorhinoplasty with terbinate reduction done by Dr. Hecht 8 days ago. My results have far exceeded my expectations. I will boldly say that my recovery was easy. It was pain free. I wish I didn't buy the pain pills in advance because they aren't cheap and I never even came close to needing one. Minimal swelling and no black eyes. Make sure you're eating your vegetables before surgery, this can only help. I started breathing better 2 days after surgery and now 8 days later I'm breathing at what I feel is 100%. Dr. Hecht said today its still going to get better. In addition to all this, visually, he did an unbelievably great job on the cosmetic portion of the surgery. I'm very happy I went for the rhinoplasty in addition to the septo. I told Dr. Hecht to do his thing and he delivered. Along with some tip work, he straightened me out and elimimated my bump and side horns. I never thought my nose was that bad. I just figured he might as well straighten it up in there since I was going under the anesthesia anyways. Now I see how crooked and bumpy it really was. The sincere thank you I gave Dr. Hecht today doesn't do the work he did justice. My face is proportionate, I breathe great, sleep solid and wake up feeling rested. His staff is friendly and are always on point. I enjoyed hanging out and talking to them after my appointments. Dr. Hecht's the man.

I have been a patient of Dr. Hecht for some seven years and feel lucky to be under his care. Very caring and skilled doctor. His Botox injections are 100% pain free.

I saw Dr. David A. Hecht for a facelift on 2-02-2015, and am extremely satisfied with the results. I have seen him twice for follow-up, and he continues to display the expertise and professionalism one finds in only the best doctors. I highly recommend him.

I saw Dr. Hecht after multiple specialists attempted to revise/repair a mohs surgery scar on my nose. I frankly had lost hope that my nose would ever look normal again. Dr. Hecht suggested another revision and despite my hesitancy I proceeded. Words can not describe how pleased I am with the results!!!

I have been in and out of Dr. Hechts office since the beginning of summer when I had my first rhinoplasty consultation. I was referred to him by a friend who also had a consultation recently. It may be helpful to others to note that my friend let me know in advance that Dr Hecht is pretty direct and frank...doesnt waste alot of time chit-chatting. I saw this as a good thing (though I see some have issues with him not being more "personable")- I prefer to deal with straight-shooters vs Drs who will coddle and baby you. He understood exactly how I wanted to look after the procedure and his computer rendering was spot-on. I just had my cast removed and stitches after getting surgery one week ago and I have already gotten compliments on my new nose- even with considerable swelling. I am optimistic about seeing the final result and have no complaints at this time. The front office staff is equally as helpful (and more chatty than Dr, if thats what you like)...very accommodating.

The primary reason I chose Dr. Hecht for my rhinoplasty was his confident and technical approach that he took during my initial exam and subsequent consultations/ follow ups.

I had upper and lower eyelid surgery with Dr. Hecht and am extremely happy with the results. He far exceeded my expectations. I felt the consultation excellent because he took his time with measurements, analyzing pictures and discussing options. The day of surgery he came in before the surgery and spent a good amount of time meticulously making markings and looking at me from every angle. There was almost no bruising and the results are fantastic. I have seen the results of many eyelid surgeries in my profession so feel I am familiar with the outcomes. The outcome of my surgery was far better than I had hoped. The staff was very kind and professional and helpful. I would enthusiastically recommend Dr. Hecht for upper and lower eyelid surgery.
