06/06/13 2 2 1 1 Outrageously incompetent! You get what you pay for in plastic surgery; I didnt' know any better and trusted this uncertified surgeon; as a result, my ears and nose are deformed and I struggle everyday, practically mentally disabled from dysmorphic disorder. Think about suicide all the time. This "Dr." is not certified by ANY of these: Facial and Cranial Surgery (F.A.C.S.); ABFPRS (American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery) or even as an E.N.T. (Ear, Nose, Throat Dr.); so he has no right to touch anybody's face. Not just my opinion-reality. If I posted a picture, you would cry. Obviously, unless you want to be deformed, don't see this quack!  Respond

01/10/11 5 4 5 5 I selected Dr. Hawrylo as my surgeon after doing a lot of research as well as asking the opinions of other patients. His credentials and training are top notch - he trained with the best in this country. Dr. Hawrylo is a brilliant surgeon - a true artist. He was thoughtful, understanding, professional, and very clear in his discussions with me. He took his time and made sure all my questions were answered and I was completely informed about the proceedure I had chosen. He even gave me his home phone number to call him directly if I had any questions or discomfort after surgery -how many doctors do that? He was fabulous when I went to my follow up appointments- reassured me when I didn't think I was healing fast enough. I have referred several close friends and relatives to this wonderful surgeon and all have agreed that his care and concern and talent are above and beyond. He is a most talented surgeon who truely cares about his patients and does his very best for them.  Respond

09/03/11 3 3 1 1 Selecting this doctor as my surgeon is the worst decision I made in my entire life. I had no facial defects before the surgery - just trying to make some minor improvements. Now I have permanent nerve damage and an odd-looking deformity. It seemed to me he did not really know how to do the surgery.

20/08/10 3 3 2 2 It seems like there are one or two very unsatisfied clients out there. However, I came across this and I am also one, and urge more of Dr. H's unhappy patients to post. He deformed my face. Avoid this guy, please.  Respond

08/07/10 4 4 2 2 He will cause you legendary pain and suffering. More specifically, I have had to cope with the anguish of having stitches and cartilage almost push through my ear after an otoplasty, and then have suffered the loss of half of the same ear's earlobe after a corrective procedure attempted by Dr. H. Also, skin was removed causing the ear to shrink to 2/3 the size of the other, causing a noticeable and upsetting asymmetry. Clearly, I would not recommend him for plastic surgery. P.S. He blamed the surgical failure on me.  Respond

15/05/10 5 5 5 5 Well, I cannot speak for Dr. H and rhinoplasty, but I can say that May 6th 2010 I had a phenol peel. His hands are a gift from God, this procedure came out better than I would have expected. The dr. actually gave us his home and cell phone number for any questions (which I think my husband used more than enough and Dr. H was so loving every time). I could have gone with the laser which would not have given me the maximum results and would have cost double if not triple. Dr. H was so honest, he told me to go with the Phenol peel. He was right. Dr. H actually trained with pioneers in the industry. I would say get ANY procedure done with him....he is a gifted surgeon. The office staff was stellar. They know you by first name after the first visit and it is like you are a family friend. The attention to detail is amazing! Heated beds in the surgery center, a nurse that walks you out to your car after EVERY follow up. I would NEVER go anywhere else and Dr H is not allowed to retire!  Respond

09/07/07 5 5 5 5 I have to say that I had a WONDERFUL experience with Dr. H and all the staff at the Peer Group. He took the time to use computer imaging to show me an idea of what I could expec as a result with my rhinoplasty (though everyone heals differently)- the actual result exceeded my expectations! I feel like my nose really fits my face now and my profile is very well balanced. Also, he has a very calming demenor and I felt very comfortable with him. He had no problem answering all of my questions (I had a ton) and was also available after my surgery for phone calls around the clock. He is truly a caring man and a gifted surgeon.  See Responses

12/06/07 5 5 5 My first surgery with Dr. Hawrylo was liposuction and I was just thrilled with the results. Not only is he an amazing surgeon but he is a truly compassionate and caring doctor. I had breast augmentation surgery years ago (performed by a different doctor) and one of the implants broke-I needed to have the implants replaced and I knew Dr. Hawyrlo was the only choice for me. He was patient and kind and answered all my questions. The staff at the Peer Group is unsurpassable with the highest professional standards. I am so happy with the results of the surgery. I had the new 410 "Gummy Bear" implants and they are wonderful-VERY natural and I highly recommend them! It was a pleasure to be Dr. Hawrylo's patient- not only is he a top surgeon in his field but he is a truly caring and gentle man. Thank-you Dr. H!  See Responses

22/05/07 5 5 5 This was my second surgery with Dr. Hawrylo and it went very very well. I did not need any pain medication afterwards and healed excellent. He is an excellent surgeon. He does not rush through office visits and is very thorough. I would highly recommend him.

18/05/07 5 5 5 It was a pleasure to be Dr. Hwawrylo 's patient. He is a very caring doctor. He made me feel very welcomed during the office visits. He called me after the surgery to see how I was doing. I beleive he loves what he is doing and he is very knowledgeable as well. The result of my surgery was excellent. I will recommend him to anyone who is considering cosmetic surgery.  Respond

11/05/07 5 5 5 Dr. Hawrylo was recommended to me by 5 friends who look great (all in their 50's) so he performed a brow lift and eyelid surgery. The pain was minimal, the result is great and his style is calm and conservative. The facility and staff are wonderful and the experience was very nice. I will recommend him to anyone who is looking for cosmetic surgery.

10/05/07 4 5 5 Dr. Hawrylo had his work cut out for him with me. I had a double masectomy and the work was far from acceptable I had heard good things about Dr Hawrylo and after meeting with him I felt very good about the entire procedure. It is two months since the surgery and I am more than happy. The look is as close as you can get to natural. I would recommend this doctor to any masectomy patient wanting implants. He is also a very kind and gentle man.

09/05/07 5 5 5 I had a face lift in NYC by a famous surgeon and after a year I look the same as before. Was I disappointed. I'm in the public eye and have to look my very best. I heard about a plastic surgeon in NJ who gets exceptional results and the rest is history.It's now 7 1/2 years since Dr. Hawrylo did my surgery and I still look and feel wonderful. My neck, jaw line , jowl area, and rest of my face are still perfect and totally natural.I know he loves his work and it shows.He's a modest, low profile man and I tell everyone the " best keep secret in the NYC area". Everyone I have referred has been happy. Anyone contemplating cosmetic surgery should at least try to get a consultation with him. The stakes are too high not to. I love you Dr. H.

16/04/07 5 5 5 A truly lovely man w/ the highest professional standards. He will not try to "sell" you on any procedures. Takes great pride in his work, for good reason. I've recommended him to a number of friends, all were extremely pleased. He has performed 2 facelifts and a few other minor procedures for me. Very happy w/ all his work. ( My husband thinks I look 20 years younger--and he's next!!)
