22/07/14 5 5 5 5 I recently had surgery on my nose to correct severe breathing problems that I was born with - Dr. Pincus literally CHANGED MY LIFE!!! I feel so fortunate to have had this procedure done by Dr. Pincus! He really made my dreams come true - and I look and feel amazing!! I still am in shock, every time I take a full, complete breath through my nose (and look in the mirrow!)! ITS SO WONDERFUL!! Not only is he the best, but Wendi, his office manager, is the sweetest, most down to Earth person!!! She helped from start to finish to ensure billing, to aftercare, etc. I cannot express enough praise and gratitude for what they have done for me! Bottom line: he is professional, real and simply the best. I'll definitely recommend him to anyone!!! :-)

03/07/14 5 5 5 5 Dr. Stephen Pincus has performed numerous cosmetic procedures on my face & neck, as well as excised several skin cancers with reconstruction & even repaired a laceration. In all instances, the results were perfect. He accepts nothing less than perfection in his work. Whatever results he tells you what you will get, is exactly what you will get. He is the most professional, caring and skilled surgeon I have ever met. Because he does not mass market himself like so many, he is somewhat under the radar. I hear all of his patients come from either doctor referrals or referrals from other patients.

27/06/14 4 4 5 5 I am absolutely convinced that Dr. Pincus is the best surgeon in his field. He truly cares about his patients and treats them like people, unlike other Doctors who treat you like the next number/specimen. He is very passionate about what he does, which you can see through his work and when he speaks to you (the patient).He is also an expert reviewer for the medical board. He has been in practice for over 30 years, but unlike other doctors who get stuck in the ways of the past, he continues to innovate. I had a previous surgery with a different doctor resulting in horrendous complications. Dr. Pincus not only fixed these issues, but the results were far beyond what I thought was possible. I would never go to anyone besides him, and would never let anyone I care about go to anyone else. Not to mention, you can get a hold of him very easily. I have had experience with other doctors where it takes a couple days .  Respond

26/05/14 5 5 5 5 I had a facelift and rhinoplasty with Dr. Pincus. I am so pleased with the outcome of my results. I have been complemented up and down on how natural and beautiful I look. He literally took off 15 years. I always disliked my nose as well, and he gave me the most perfect yet natural looking nose. Dr. Pincus is a true artist, he is very professional and such a skilled surgeon with an impeccable bedside manner. I thank my girlfriend every day for the referral. His staff is wonderful too. Wendy who is his consultant and office manager is always on top of it. She follows through with everything and made my experience that much better. I am forever grateful.  Respond

22/02/14 5 5 5 5 I had one of the most challenging noses to reconstruct. After looking long and hard, it was a Godsend to find Dr. Pincus. It has been a very long and difficult process for me to have the nose I always dreamt of, and this doctor made it possible! Miracles do happen. I feel fortunate, beyond words, to have have found Dr. Pincus. He has acquired the most cutting edge techniques that he applies ever so patiently. His assistant, Wendi, is patient and on top of things, working very closely with the Doctor to provide the utmost of specialized care. I have been so touched by Dr. Pincus's outstanding professionalism and steadfast dedication to my cause, that I have experienced emotional tears of joy and relief.7 He's the "real deal" when it comes to plastic surgery and upholding the highest standards of what I would expect of MD. I think the world of him and can't thank him enough!  Respond

25/05/13 5 5 5 5 I had a procedure done on my face 11 years ago with Dr. Stephen Pincus and I was very happy with the results of that procedure. I have had 2 additional procedures done recently with Dr. Pincus. I am again very pleased with the outcome. Dr. Pincus sat with me and listened to just what I was seeking to achieve. He then offered his ideas and advice for the best result. This Dr. is highly skilled and has a very gentle way about him. Dr. Pincus has a wealth of experience and knowledge. I highly recommend Dr. Stephen Pincus to anyone who is seeking facial cosmetic surgery. I am very lucky to have found this man. He has made me very happy once again.  Respond

01/05/13 5 5 5 5 5/1/13 Just had a nose revision surgery & facelift with Dr. Pincus & couldn’t be happier! I look in my late twenties & natural. I had done surgery with him 20 years ago & it’s great to see the time, care, & talent he has 20 years later! Dr. Pincus even called me the night of surgery to check on me & his staff was superb with all follow-up. Miss D, Beverly Hills  Respond

13/03/13 5 5 5 5 There is nobody I trust more than Dr. Pincus. 10 years ago, he corrected a previous rhinoplasty that had been performed by another plastic surgeon. He gave me a fantastic nose and corrected my breathing 100%. Later, Dr. Pincus took extensive time with my husband. He promised that the changes to his nose would only be subtle, as desired. Perfect! Our daughter had a huge nose. It bled constantly due to the deviation of the septum and she couldn't breathe. For three years, I took her to Dr. Pincus, who would not perform surgery until last December, when he determined that she had finished growing. The surgery changed her life. She can breathe, her nose no longer bleeds, and her repaired nose is adorable! What I most admire about Dr. Pincus is his ability to design a nose that is just right for a face. I see pictures of surgeries that have been performed by other plastic surgeons on CELEBRITIES and I wonder what they were thinking! They should have gone to Dr. Pincus...  Respond

21/10/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Stephen Pincus belongs to that thin, top layer of most gifted, passionate and caring individuals in this field. He combines exceptional talent with the highest professional integrity and excellent care. He performed several facial procedures on me that restored a natural, youthful appearance that I didn't know was achievable. I trust him blindly and recommend him without reservations.  Respond

04/03/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Pincus dld a full facelift on me 1 year ago and I'm extremely pleased with the results - he does amazing work! He didn't change my natural looks; I now look exactly like I did 15 years ago - looks completely natural and no one would guess I've had surgery. He did a rhinoplasty on my daughter's nose; kept her "ethnic nose" just made is smaller and more feminine. It totally suits her face and she is thrilled with it. I just recently had rhinoplasty done by him. I always hated my nose and finally decided to fix it. He totally listened to my wishes (wanted to keep the bump and general shape, just make them smaller). The results are absolutely beautiful and exactly what I wanted. He is a true artist, has a great bedside manner, is very kind and LISTENS to his patients. I highly recommend him; he's a perfectionist who is serious about doing excellent work and making his patients happy - not about being a "Beverly Hills doctor/ TV star".  Respond

10/02/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Pincus gets and A in every category. He did my nose job. He did an excellent job and no one has ever asked me where I got my job done. He removed a large bump off my nose and made me beautiful. I got married about one year later! My niece had her nose done by him ten years later. Same result.  Respond

19/10/09 5 5 5 5 I am a male patient and had rhinoplasty and chin liposuction (muscles were tightened as well) with Dr. Pincus almost a year ago. The end result came out awesome! My double chin is gone and what used to be an ugly droopy nose now has a nice straight profile and looks very natural. Recovery was a real pain the first couple of days, especially since I had both the chin and nose done, but I am glad I decided to do it. The nose came out of the cast with very little bruising. There was some amount of uneven swelling but with taping that was quickly put under control. The chin was a different story... there was so much bruising and swelling that it looked worse than before for at least two weeks. I was really glad I took three weeks off! Pincus told me that I was one of the unlucky few that take longer to recover. The chin continued to improve each week and was looking really good by the two month mark. It continued to improve for months and many people even commented that I lost weight.

18/10/09 5 5 5 5 Having revision rhynoplasty is a very scary thing, I put it off for years because I could not find a Doctor I could trust. After finding Dr. Pincus by referral I decided to have corrective surgery not only because of his knowledge is expertise and honest straight forward attitude but also for his passion to really accomplish the best results. Dr. Pincus proved to be more than a surgeon but a great artist, for my nose is FINALLY fixed (from bad bad surgery)and actually a feature I for once like about about myself! I recommend him to people interested in rhynoplast but ESPECIALLY to those who need revision.  Respond

24/09/08 5 5 5 5 I know I made the right choice using Dr. Pinkas for my nose job. Being Italian & in the entertainment business my main concern was not to come out with a barbie looking nose that would not match my ethnicity. He listened to my concerns and made me feel comfortable. My outcome was exactly what I pictured and what we discussed. I recommend Dr. Pinkas to everyone!
