Ratings for Dr. Richard R. Hawrylo
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
