Where do I begin!?!? Simply stated, Dr. T has changed my life! After many years of battling my weight and, at times, being morbidly obese, I finally decided to do something to take charge of my life. I had lap band surgery in January 2012 and to date, I've lost approximately 160 lbs! As you could imagine, between excessive weight loss and two pregnancies, my body looked like a deflated balloon. I was lucky enough to cross paths with Dr. Taranow and in February 2014, he worked his magic. I had breast augmentation surgery as well as a tummy tuck / body lift.
Throughout the process from beginning to end, Dr. Taranow and his staff treated me like family. I was never rushed or pressured into making a decision. The ease of appointment scheduling and availability to answer questions via telephone or text, was so convenient and important to me. Dr. T set realistic expectations of both the surgery recovery and recovery time, as well as the physical results. One thing you should know, Dr. Taranow is a perfectionist! He's caring, concerned and always available. His bedside manner is amazing. I feel great, I look great and this summer was the first I've EVER worn a bikini in public! Two of my friends had similar surgeries with Dr. T in the months following my surgery and we are all extremely pleased with our results and the overall experience with Dr. Taranow, his surgical team and Sara, his office manager.
If you are seriously considering any type of plastic surgery, I encourage you to look no further. Please schedule a consultation, you will not be disappointed! If you need further reassurance, please visit Dr. Taranow's website and view his before and after photos to see all of his magnificent work, including me! After all, there's a reason I call him Dr. Magic Hands"!

I got a botched tummy tuck and liposuction in Florida a few years ago. My belly had so much extra skin after the surgery and the scar was unsightly. I was referred to Dr. T by several friends that had amazing work done by him. I decided to go pay him a visit. BEST DECISION OF MY LIFE! He made me look I was when I was 23 yrs old again. I had a revision abdominoplasty/liposuction. I look and feel amazing. His whole staff was awesome, Sarah at the front and Jacquie at the surgery center were great! I also had some fillers done on my face and it looks so natural and beautiful. I feel like a young women again. Thank you so much!

I had horrible huge breast implants with capsular contracture., I was so depressed and self conscious until I met Dr Taranow. Dr Taranow gave me a mini lift with implants on my breast and liposuction on my triceps and upper back.He literally removed all the fat. I look great, Dr Taranow did and awesome job.The scarring is minimal and I didn't have any pain. I also got filler injections on my face and I look fab. It was worth every dollar.My breast look soft and natural and are a perfect size.He answered all my questions and is very down to earth.His staff is great too.Everybody is friendly and nice.I had my post op after Mother's Day and he was kind enough to remember and gave me white roses.I can't say enough about him. He's a great doctor.

Pretty good doctor. Looks fairly good and did a good work. I would recommend to my friends. Staff was a bit tough but other than that the doctor was knowledgeable and the result turned out amazing. Corrected a botched job.

I had a breast augmentation a few weeks ago by Dr. Taranow, and I couldn't be happier. They look PERFECT! I'm an athlete and compete in bodybuilding/figure shows, so I was very picky because I wanted someone who really knew how to give me the look I was going for. I had been wanting a BA for two years, but I was just too scared because the work I saw from other surgeons were just OK. A girlfriend of mine, who is also an athlete, got hers done and they looked so amazing that I had to find out who was her surgeon. She referred me to Dr Taranow, and the rest is history. I had a few consultations with him, and what won me over is his honesty about what would be best for my body type and lifestyle, his level of experience, and the overall service provided by him and his staff. Everyone in his office is friendly and welcoming with an awesome sense of humor.I already have four other girlfriends who saw his work on me and scheduled their consultations. He's definitely worth it!

Dr. T changed my life; I had a child at the age of 43, my first. I have never been a size 16 I looked horrible, I decided it was time to do something. I had liposuction done below my breasts, waist, upper stomach, the outer thighs, hips, and below my chin. I look about 15 years younger, and I am wearing a size 8, 6 moths after surgery. I did loose weight after the procedure; however, even with the loss I would never look the way I do now. Dr T is great, his staff is very nice and I would recommend him in a New York minute.

I was looking for breast implants and consulted different doctors prior to my initial surgery, I felt like most were trying to sell me products. Dr. Taranow was different. Unfortunately I initially went with another doctor and I was unhappy with the proportion of the implants to my body size, as well as other cosmetic issues. Dr Taranow was able to do an amazing job fixing the mistakes of the previous surgeon, all with the highest level of professional care and concern as if I had been his patient all along. I finally got what I had hoped for all along. They look natural, they fit my little figure and they're cute and perky. I was worried about scaring because I have a porcelain complexion and little color in my areola. Prior to the surgery we came up with a plan to later use a laser to remove the pigment from the scars should I feel it necessary. Patient, kind, attentive & a very skilled surgeon. The experience that I had with my first surgery and my second are like night and day.

I recently had two separate procedures with Dr. Douglas Taranow. The first was liposuction of my legs and sides. Most recently (three months later), I just had a tummy tuck, together with liposuction of my upper back, arms, hips and inner knees. I am very happy with the results. Dr. Taranow is a perfectionist and an amazing surgeon. He is also very candid. He told me what I could expect after each surgery - and the results fax exceeded my expectations. I found Dr. Taranow through a friend who used him years ago and then I did the research online. His sight was extremely informative and I felt I knew him before our first consulation. Dr. Taranow and his staff are warm and compassionate. He gave me a lot of information before the procedures regarding the likely outcomes. I would recommend if you decide to have any plastic surgery you then go online to check out blogs of people who have done that procedure for good post surgery advice. Go for it - I am so glad I did.

I wish I had found this site five years ago when I got lipo by Taranow. I had to get everything re-done by a different doctor because Taranow left me lumpy and uneven. I spent $30,000 on this surgery - $27,000 the first time and $3000 for an additional touch-up. Finally, I wised up and went to another surgeon who removed the rest of the unwanted fat and smoothed things out so I wasn't lumpy or uneven. After I got the surgery re-done by another doctor, I really see a difference and wish I had not gone to Taranow in the first place. What a waste of money!
