Ratings for Dr. Sheldon M. Lincenberg
First experience with a plastic surgeon and I could not be happier! The staff was so patient with me answering all my questions and concerns. Dr. Lincenberg was so personable and put me at ease about all the procedures. I would highly recommend Dr. Lincenberg and his staff for any and all surgical procedures. I will be returning in the future!
Wow! This man is a genius! I had gastric bypass surgery by Dr. Scott Steinberg (Dekalb Medical). After losing the equivalent of a small person off of my stature; I had some sagging skin around my tummy. Dr. Lincenberg performed a tummy tuck and made me look like a model! He was so attentive in making sure he executed a perfect job. Dr. Lincenberg has a warm rapport and a nice smile. His entire office staff including his office manager wife Julie are very down to earth and highly professional.
I had to have a hysterectomy and opted to also have a tummy tuck, liposuction on my stomach, hips and under my chin. I am two weeks post-op and extremely happy with my results so far. I have loved working with Dr. Lincenberg and his staff. They are all very nice, accommodating and knowledgable. I highly recommend him as a surgeon.
Dr Lincenberg does not know what he is doing. Gave me a facelift and necklift. I returned with my issues and he acted mad. I ended up going to another plastic surgeon to Fix what he had done. Second surgeon said Dr Lincenberg did not tighten the muscles in my face and neck like he should have and had only tightened the skin, which did not last. He ruined my neck by sucking out all the fat, so now I have a witch chin. New surgeon did his best to make me look right but couldn't work miracles where Dr Lincenberg did such an awful job. STAY AWAY FROM THIS DOCTOR. HE WILL RUIN YOU Like he did me.
By far one of the nicest and most professional offices I have been to. Plus he is an outstanding surgeon and has a good bedside manner, which if you are anything like me, the bedside manner is really important. I've had two surgeries with him (both on my chest) and I am thrilled with the result! He is also incredibly smart and will go out of his way to help you.
Some years ago I had a nightmare of an experience with Dr Lincenberg. My side of my face is disfigure where he had said he dropped some stitches. He admitted his error but would do nothing about it. It literally has changed my life. He even said "Well I spent 10 minutes on it and had to move on!" I haven't been able to afford a repair face lift. His lack of caring was hurtful. I hope he is better now.
I am celebrating my one year anniversary today from my breast lift that Dr Shel did for me last year. I can tell you that I am just as happy as I were last year. I told him my goal was to NEVER WEAR A BRA AGAIN as of today I have not worn one for a year and I could not be happier. Dr Shel listened to what I wanted and we came up with a good plan and everything went as planned. I highly recommend Dr Shel and his staff. When I first read about him it also talked about how friendly and nice his staff were and it was true and above that. I always felt very welcomed when I had to go in and always looked forward to seeing everyone. If and when I decide to have anything else done I will come back here. Thank you for everything you did for me.
Dr Lincenberg and his complete staff rose above my initial expectations. I chose his business specifically because of his experience with the Transgender Community, but from my initial visit and consultation I was overwhelmed with the genuine courtesy, concern and expertise of his complete staff regarding the overall procedure and for me as a person. Follow up visits were just as genuine in their concern for me, not only for my physical health, but mental state of mind as well. I will only tout Dr Lincenberg and his complete staff as the best experience I could possibly have had.
