Dr Hochstein preformed a breast revision on me 9 months ago and I look amazing. I went to literally 9 other doctors and all of them told me they couldn't even help me. I'm so glad that I found dr Hochstein because he gave me the confidence back that I always wished for after my crappy job from another surgeon. Staff is really friendly and always greeted me with a smile. Clean office too which was a huge plus!

STAY AWAY!! I am in the process of searching for a revision surgeon, and going in for the fourth surgery on my breast, to fix Dr. Hochstein's shoddy work. My long story in a few words: I got my first breast augmentation with Dr. Hochstein in 2012 (I had perfectly normal breasts just small, an A cup) from the very beginning I had a dent on my right breast. I was told it would go away with time. I got my second breast surgery in 2014 to go for smaller implants because the ones I originally had were very heavy and painful (never did I receive any guidance from Dr. Hochstein regarding the size, especially seeing that I am extremely petite). By this time I told the doctor I was very concerned about the dent because it had been 1.5 years and it was still there, even more noticeable. I was told that that with the smaller implants it would be fixed. It was not! it got only worse. At this point I knew it was not going away with time nor smaller implants so I started pressing Dr. Hochstein about fixing it. All of a sudden, he and his incompetent staff (who give out medical conclusions as if they are doctors) started to tell me that the dent was caused by my anatomy, and that I should have been aware of my anatomy from the beginning! Again, I had perfectly normal natural breast. He kept telling me there was nothing that could be done and that it was now due to my anatomy (not his original story that time would fix it). I believed that since he'd done my previous surgeries he'd be the most fit to fix this dent. BIG MISTAKE. As soon as I got to his office, he looked at it for 2 seconds and replied "oh.. I can definitely fix this". Well guess what? He only made it 10 million times worse! Not only do I still have the dent, but now he's cut the capsule and fold and I have the implant which is popping through the skin. It's really just gross. So now I am in the search to find a revision doctor to fix my breast and go in for the FOURTH surgery. Dr. Hochstein is unaccountable for his work and you should be very wary of going to hm. If you're smart, you'll stay away all together!!

Dr. Hochstein performed mastopexy with augmentation. While my breasts look fine without a bra, they look like a tube boob, uniboob, web boob with any kind of bra or bathing suit on or tension. I've made my concerns clear to him through multiple e-mails but he maintains that he can't be held responsible for the way my breasts look in clothing. Devastated that I spent pretty much what I had in my savings account, $8,000.00 and have to start over with a new surgical procedure to remedy his mistake, which he won't admit to.

Dr. Leonard Hochstein's response
This is simply not true. I take full responsibility for this result. In every breast augmentation I strive for a 1/2 inch( 1cm) separation between the implants. This is exactly what was done here and I take full responsibility for this. I also expect that the implants will be soft enough that when you wear a bra or bathing suit that squeezes them together they will move together. I take full responsibility for that as well. This is not a "tube boob" or "uniboob". That term is used for implants that do not have a separation but rather blend into each other when naked. This is not the case here. What this patient wanted was hard implants that have a large gap and do not move. This is not the kind of result I would ever want. My ability to consistently achieve soft breasts with a close cleavage is what has made me, statistically; the most successful breast implant surgeon in the whole entire country and this is exactly the result here. My website has over 1000 pictures of breasts with this type of result. I have no idea why this patient would travel such a distance when she wanted a different type of look. A look that I would never perform. The fact is that very rarely I have a patient come in that wants over inflated saline implants with a large gap. I tell them to go elsewhere. My mistake here was that I did not recognize that this is what she wanted. In my defense I will say that she never articulated that desire. If she had I would not have had to write this as I would have turned her down as a patient Leonard M Hochstein MD

Truly there are not enough words to describe Dr. Hochstein and his team. I am a week post op, but healing wonderfully and loving the results so far. A special thank you to Amanda, Jennifer and Christie. It meant a lot to always have punctual replies which gave me so much comfort with moving forward with my procedure. A highly professional team who are courteous and always available, even after hours.

Words cannot express how amazing Dr. Hochstein and his entire wonderful staff is, especially Amanda with her wonderful attitude and how great she made me feel!! I speak from experience having had multiple procedures done with other surgeons, Dr. Hochstein is BY FAR THE BEST!!! I am only 5 days post op and the results are already incredible and noticeable. His operating rooms are immaculate and his anesthesiologist is thorough and professional not to mention Dr. Hochstein's magic hands!! He is short with words but his actions speak volumes and the confidence he portrays gives you a sense of tranquility that he knows what he is doing and will do his very best to make you look fabulous... and at the end that is all that matters!! I highly recommend Dr. Hochstein and cannot wait to recover so he can do more work on me!
